    Aug. 5 (UPI) -- A trio of cheesemakers teamed up in Quebec to make a world record-breaking poutine that weighed nearly 6,700 pounds. The cheesemakers, Fromage Warwick, Fromagerie Victoria and Fromagerie du Presbytere, combined fries, gravy and cheese curds in Warwick to create a total 6,688 pounds of poutine. Sebastien Lemay, the co-owner of Fromage Warwick, said it took about 26 to 28 hours to prepare all of the cheese curds for the poutine, while the fries were cooked up just prior to the event with the use of 40 deep-frying machines. The previous poutine world record was 4,409 pounds,...

    Using chemical analysis of pottery fragments and animal bones found at one of England's earliest medieval villages, combined with detailed examination of a range of historical documents and accounts, the research has revealed the daily diet of peasants in the Middle Ages. The researchers were also able to look at butchery techniques, methods of food preparation and rubbish disposal at the settlement Dr. Julie Dunne and Professor Richard Evershed from the University of Bristol's Organic Geochemistry Unit, based within the School of Chemistry, led the research, published today in the Journal of Archaeological Science.

    Consumers could soon be looking at cheese in a new light. Switzerland has played host to a ground-breaking study which goes beyond the usual factors of appearance, taste, and smell. The title is simple but surreal: Cheese in Surround Sound. Experts describe it in their press release as “a culinary art experiment,” seeking to establish a credible link between cheese and music. For a more thorough scientific explanation, the reader must consider how “the bio-acoustic impact of sound waves affects metabolic processes in cheese, to the point where a discernible difference in flavor becomes apparent – one which can even...

  • Why Does the Federal Government Have 1.4 Billion Pounds of American Cheese Stockpiled?

    Rather than reduce dairy subsidies, the USDA has been paying to have surplus milk made into cheese. In the 1930s, the U.S. federal government established dairy subsidies to bail out America’s dairy farmers from the Great Depression. Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, those same subsidies are still in effect today, where they have underwritten a massive surplus of milk in the U.S. dairy industry that far exceeds the appetites of over 327 million Americans to consume it. But rather than reduce the subsidies to reduce the surplus to more reasonable levels, the USDA is instead paying the U.S....

    Boston University Law Review ^ | May 2013 | Philip N. Cohen
    Hanna Rosin has written that she “hesitate[s] to get drawn into data wars” (and suggested my blog to those readers who have “an appetite for them”).1Statistics, however, are not mere technical details, academic in the pejorative sense. They are reflections of reality – numbers that represent characteristics of a sample which, if done right, reflect the population from which the sample is drawn. It is in the broad sense of measuring reality, not the narrow sense of quibbling over details at the nth decimal place, that the “end of men” is not true. Rosin’s depiction of reality is not accurate.

    Federal workers and contractors not getting paid have had to resort to seeking handouts as the record-breaking shutdown continues for a fourth week. In Washington, DC, the line for free meals stretched down Pennsylvania Avenue between the White House and the Capitol because workers say any little bit helps when no money is coming in. “Accepting that I’m here is demoralizing,” said a teary Blen Woldearegay, a Department of Interior contractor who is worried about possible foreclosure on her new home. “It’s hard. It’s hurtful. I’m not the type of person that likes to do that [ask for help] just...

    More than 900,000 cubic yards of cheddar, American and Swiss currently sit in cold storage across the United States, enough cheese to form a wheel the size of the U.S. Capitol building. The excess is the biggest the country has seen since the government started keeping track a century ago, and it's 16 percent larger than the cheese surplus of 2016 when the government offered to buy up $20 million worth of excess cheese... "Part of it is changes in the domestic use of that milk." Another factor is trade — "a self-inflicted wound," Novakovic says. And there is growing...
  • Moose wanders into Alaska hospital for a 'morning snack'

    Doctors, staff and patients at a hospital in Alaska’s largest city got the surprise of a lifetime when a large moose wandered inside for a quick snack. Video footage captured Monday by a worker at Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage shows the moose poking around some greenery near an entrance before it starts gazing in the camera’s direction. “Didn’t think we’d have a pet moose,” Stephanie Hupton, who works in billing at a physical therapy office inside the hospital and captured the footage, told the Associated Press. She told KTUU that she started recording after a patient mentioned to security...

  • PETA: Cow's milk a symbol of white supremacy

    PETA: Cow's milk a symbol of white supremacy Zac Self 11:24 AM, Oct 21, 2018 5 hours ago According to PETA’s latest press release, cow’s milk is a symbol of white supremacy. In a statement, the animal rights group links the dairy industry’s treatment of the cows to the concept of white supremacy. “Aside from ‘lactose-tolerant’ white supremacists, cow’s milk really is the perfect drink of choice for all (even unwitting) supremacists, since the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings,” the organization said in part. “PETA is trying to wake people up to the implications of choosing...
