    Conservative Rightwing News ^ | January 17, 2019 | Jeffrey A. Friedberg
    [PHOTO} Here, quoted below, we are presented with liberal “experts.” A liberal bunch of so-called, foodie “professors” and “scientists,” who are dependent upon liberal-minded grants and donations, telling their version of a liberal Save The Planet myth—to a liberal French newspaper, being quoted by a liberal web portal. We are told they will care for us. We are told what food they will permit to us to eat. We are told how much food will be allowed to us. This will all somehow be worked out, “scientifically.” What’s not to believe? What could possibly go wrong with that? I say...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer rejected an invitation from President Trump to participate in a lunch meeting that would discuss a possible compromise to partially fund a border barrier and reopen the federal government. "We saw the fast food spread he bought for the college football champions," Schumer pointed out. "If he treats star athletes like that I shudder to think what he'd have on the menu for us. He likes football. He hates us. There's no way I'd go without seeing a menu first." Pelosi was even harsher in her assessment of the...

    VIDEO I cooked garlic ribs aka St. Louis ribs smothered in garlic on January 9. I used the 3-2-1 method in which after initially smoking the ribs for 3 hours, I wrapped them in foil for another 2 hours, and finally slathered barbecue sauce mixed with butter on them for the final hour. A great low carb meal for weight loss.
  • “Indoor farming is about producing an economic product by using technology”

    "The mistake many in our industry make is to attribute the success of indoor farming solely to LED. LED makes indoor farming viable. But if you want to make indoor farming scalable, you have to think in trends that are happening in robotics, automation, computer vision and machine learning." So says Irving Fain, CEO with Bowery Farming. Yesterday the company announced a $90 million funding round, led by GV (formerly Google Ventures). Additional investors in this round include Temasek (the global investment company headquartered in Singapore), Dara Khosrowshahi (CEO of Uber), David Barber’s fund Almanac, First Round Capital, GGV Capital...

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | December 24, 2018 | Benjamin Haas in Seoul
    Lee Oui-ryuk was on the verge of dying of starvation when he stole a block of tofu in a market in North Korea at the height of a nationwide famine. Too weak to run away after he swiped the food, Lee continued eating as the seller cried and beat him with a metal rod, staining the white tofu red with his blood. At nine years old he knew the theft would end in violence, but in his head he repeated over and over: “Even if you are beaten, keep eating.” He eventually passed out and when he awoke, took a...

    VIDEO If you are scratching your head over the title, the video will explain it. This was recorded at the Porto Alegre Brazilian Restaurant in Miami on December 23, 2018 where I interviewed several of my young guests. Besides the Birthday Boy, attending was his brother, Marine Lance Corporal Ken Gutierrez, home on leave from his duty station in Hawaii. He gave me a rather unexpected opinion about that state. Also interviewed was Genesis the Mermaid who also surprised me with her new love for spicy food since she used to prefer mild to bland food. Now she prefers her...

    In a reversal of the Obama Administration's granting states more latitude to waive work requirements as a condition for food stamp eligibility, President Trump has directed his Department of Agriculture to shift food aid recipients "from dependence to independence and from welfare to gainful employment—as the bipartisan law originally intended." Under the legislation creating the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) able-bodied adults without children are required to work 20 hours per week or participate in job training in order to continue to receive benefits. States were allowed to waive this requirement if unemployment was too high to make finding a...

    VIDEO For the first time in years, I was able to fit into a size 38 pants today which I wore to the weigh-in. When I started my weight loss odyssey back on May 27 this year, I was barely able to fit into a size 46 pants. I lost weight this time but not as much as during the past two weigh-ins. I'm blaming Thanksgiving, specifically Thanksgiving pumpkin pie-cake which I sort of gorged on. However, there is now a very good chance that I will drop down to my 220 pound goal of 100 total pounds lost by...

    VIDEO I need to drop 26 pounds by my Friday weigh-in in order to reach 220 pounds for a total loss since May of 100 pounds. However, I won't quite get there this time but the good news is that I AM NO LONGER FAT!!! A few days ago I noticed this new non-fat condition while walking by a full length mirror. A condition that until recently I doubted I would ever be able to obtain after years of trying and failing to lose weight. Although I won't hit the 100 pound loss by Friday, I am pretty sure it...

    VIDEO I am now exactly a week away from my December 21 weigh-in. I had hoped to drop to my goal of 100 pounds down from my May 27 weight of 320 pounds. However, as I noted in this video, Thanksgiving caused a weight loss slowdown for me plus the fact that I need to lose 26 pounds from my last weigh-in. My normal weight loss is just 20 to 23 pounds lost per 6 week period. Another reason why I would like to drop to 220 pounds by next Friday is that if I do so I have a...

    Today is Raj’s birthday, and that means only one thing around here: there will be cake. At one time that meant Mom’s Mystery Cake, which was about as simple as a homemade dessert could get and delicious when served with copious amounts of whipped cream. There are many more complicated variations of “fruit cocktail cake” out there but if yours looks more like a traditional cake with identifiable chunks of fruit in it you’re not doing it right. It should be more of an amalgamated pudding like creature. Mom’s Mystery CakeIngredients     1 (16 ounce) can fruit cocktail in heavy...

    It is incredibly important to understand that as the weather turns bitterly cold in the north, people will begin to migrate south. This not merely cause the Greeks to become the Sea Peoples, but during the Year without a Summer in 1816 even in the States when six inches of snow fell in June and every month of the year had a hard frost, people began to migrate. The temperatures had dropped to as low as 40 degrees in July and August in New York City during 1816. People also called it ‘Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death’ and the...

    The “Palestinians” are up in arms, not for the first time, over what they see as Israel’s “theft” of what they claim are quintessentially “Palestinian” foods — hummus and falafel. This is one more way to continue the narrative of Israel as a foreign body, stealing not just “Palestinian” land, but also stealing “Palestinian” culture, including its clothing, its keffiyeh, and its food. Here’s the latest complaint by a Palestine Authority spokesman: Official Palestinian Authority television recently accused Israel of stealing falafel, hummus, and other “Palestinian foods” as part of a conspiracy against “Palestinian heritage.” The claim was made by...

    Toxic ideologies often start around family dinner tables. It's not just an uncle saying a racist joke, or a grandmother determining her xenophobic ideas as “a part of her time.” These comments seep into how we make decisions in voting booths, how judges rule in their chambers, how teachers guide students in school classrooms, how employment decisions are made, and how police react in high-stakes situations. After a year of relentless atrocities that don’t always make for easy conversation at the dinner table, it's important to make Thanksgiving preparations beyond the tablescape and the menu. This year, I want you...
