    Sarah Palin believes flight 370 flew directly to heaven... how is she a senator? — DIMV (@Freshselective) March 21, 2014 The Daily Currant strikes again. The website, which calls itself “The Global Satirical Newspaper of Record,” last week claimed that Sarah Palin told Sean Hannity she believes Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 “accidentally flew too high and got stuck in heaven.” The story was cross posted to other non-satire sites and managed to fool quite a few.

    Associated Press ^ | Mar 11, 2014 2:35 PM EDT | Mary Clare Jalonick
    Would Parmesan by any other name be as tasty atop your pasta? A ripening trade battle might put that to the test. As part of trade talks, the European Union wants to ban the use of European names like Parmesan, feta and Gruyère on cheese made in the United States. The argument is that the American-made cheeses are shadows of the original European varieties and cut into sales and identity of the European cheeses. The Europeans say Parmesan should only come from Parma, Italy, not those familiar green cylinders that American companies sell. Feta should only be from Greece, even...

    NY Times ^ | MARCH 5, 2014 | By BRENT McDONALD
    GRAND PORTAGE, Minn. — For moose, this year’s winter-long deep freeze across the Upper Midwest is truly ideal weather. The large, gangly creatures are adapted to deep snow: Their hollow fur insulates them like fiberglass does in a house. And the prolonged cold helps eradicate pests that prey on moose, like ticks and meningeal worm, or brain worm. Yet moose in Minnesota are dying at an alarming rate, and biologists are perplexed as to why.

    For some cheese lovers, the older and stinkier the cheese, the better. Well, what about a cheese that's been aging for 3,600 years? Yellow lumps, believed to be the world's oldest cheese, were found on mummies buried in the Taklamakan Desert in northwestern China. The cheese, which was found during archaeological excavations that took place between 2002 and 2004, dates to as early as 1615 BC. The cheese was found on the necks and chests of the mummies. The multiple layers of cowhide the mummies were buried in, and the dry, salty desert helped preserve the cheese....

Wes Livingston, a contractor working on a state-run moose project, captured the frightening encounter with the calf he’d just netted and collared on head-mounted camera.

    An agitated moose in Smithers, B.C., was caught on video attacking a bystander with its front legs. Laryne Gamble, who uploaded the video to Facebook on Feb. 12, wrote that she decided to pull over when she saw the animal standing on the side of the road. She said she wanted to record a snippet of the action because her sister-in-law had never seen a moose. The animal then started walking toward a woman who had passed by, kicking her from behind on the shoulder. That’s when the video cuts off. “I really hope the lady is okay,” Gamble stated....

The other was scared to try something new. She asked for plain. “Plain pizza?” Aycock asked, sounding offended. “What is ‘plain’ pizza?” After a playful yet testy exchange, both kids turned around without making an order and fled out the door. Aycock was fine with losing the sale if it helped him make his point.</p>

    The Kitchn ^ | Nora Singley
    Cheese storage is one of those confounding subjects. If you buy a really nice cheese, you don't want to ruin it with a lack of parenting skills, right? Perhaps you know how you shouldn't store cheese. But do you know how you should? Proper preservation of cheese is easier than you think.The first thing to know: DO NOT store your cheese in plastic wrap! Wrapping cheese directly in plastic is the equivalent of flavor suffocation. Cheese is a living, breathing thing, and closing it off to air is just about the worst thing you can do to it. Plus, plastic...

Derrick Chaulk said he was driving down a road by the harbour in Norris Arm North this past Saturday when he saw what he thought was a beached whale. When Chaulk went closer to investigate, he realized it was a shark, which he estimated was about 2.5 metres long, and weighed about 115 kg. The animal was still alive and had a large chunk of moose hide protruding from its mouth.

"He came up peacefully enough," York said. "I was hoping he might just take a little sniff and move away but he didn't."

    The village of Stilton has been banned from making its namesake cheese after EU officials ruled it originated in another part of England. Under European law, the renowned blue cheese can only be produced in Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. Controversy arose when the Bells Inn in Stilton, Cambridgeshire, announced it wished to name their own blue-veined cheese after the village—rather than “Bells Blue”, which they have been forced to do. However, in a landmark decision that the pub has branded unfair, an application submitted by the Original Cheese Company to amend the EU Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) ruling has...
