    Australian tourists are unwittingly eating dog meat in Bali, according to evidence provided to the ABC's 7.30 program. The animals are brutally caught and then butchered not far from the beaches visited by more than 1 million Australians every year. 'Nothing prepared me for the brutal catching of dogs' Equipped with little more than his phone, a scooter and a small video camera, investigator 'Luke' spent four months infiltrating and documenting the brutal dog meat trade in Bali. Some of the animals are poisoned, posing a risk to human health, according to a leading toxicologist. Whilst eating dog meat is...

    The New York soup company which inspired the Soup Nazi character on the hit comedy Seinfeld has filed for bankruptcy. Soupman Inc is based in Staten Island and sells soups made from the recipes of Al Yeganeh, who opened his store in Manhattan in 1984. He and his New York soup stand were the inspiration for the Seinfeld character, played by actor Larry Thomas, who would make his would-be customers follow strict rules to order or otherwise refuse to serve them, barking his repeated catchphrase: 'No soup for you!'

    A husband and wife live a 'food-free' diet and claim they survive by only eating vegetable broth or fruit a handful of times a week. Akahi Ricardo, 36, and Camila Castello, 34, who live between California and Ecuador, said they have forgotten what hunger feels like and believe humans can be sustained solely by the 'energy that exists in the universe and in themselves'. Mother-of-two Camila even practised a 'breatharian' pregnancy, only eating solids five times during the nine months she was carrying her first child. 'Humans can easily be without food, as long as they are the connected to the...

    Washington Post ^ | June 13 at 5:15 AM | By Simon Denyer
    BEIJING — In China, it is legal to eat cats and dogs. Even so, ordinary people reacted with alarm this week as news broke of a Chinese man caught with 500 cats, crowded into tiny cages, which he intended to sell to restaurants. The man had used sparrows and caged birds to lure both stray cats and domestic ones in the city of Jiujiang in southern Jiangsu province, the 163.com and news.ifeng.com websites reported. Many of the cats were found in cages in the back of a small truck, some near death and mewing faintly in the heat, while others...

    People love Chick-fil-A, the poultry-centric fast-food chain whose corporate purpose is to “glorify God,” and whose strict Sunday closure means that every employee gets at least one day of rest. People love the carnival-like waffle fries, the neonatal ward-like hospitality, the cleanliness on par with a Silicon Valley chip manufacturer, the fresh-squeezed lemonade spiked with soft-serve ice cream, the aromatic peach shakes, the admirably bare-bones fried-chicken sandwich, the viral fan song set to the tune of the Beatles’s “Yesterday,” and the famous Polynesian sauce, an agrodolce condiment that looks like what would happen if a stop sign were melted down...

  • Which Ice Cream Brand Is Big, Gay — And Defiantly Kosher?

    The Forward ^ | June 7, 2017 | Michelle Honig
    Kosher ice cream lovers have a lot to celebrate this Pride month, specifically in the form of a pint of Big Gay Ice Cream. That’s because when the ice cream truck-turned-brick-and-mortar shop decided to package its popular soft serve to be sold nationally, it sought and received kosher certification. The pints of soft-serve deliciousness, which debuted in March and are sold in grocery stores and online, are officially under the auspices of the kashrut division of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America. Or, as it is colloquially known, the OU. While it’s understandable that an up-and-coming brand would...

    There are some terrible ideas emanating from the left side of American politics in regard to how to effectively deal with radical Islamic terrorism The most infamous of these tactics was popularized by former U.S. President Barack Obama whose master plan for ISIS and their vile cronies was to ignore them. When the former democratic deity was forced to confront the Islamic terror threat, he did so by lamely insulting those who were waging war on all non-Muslims, calling them “desperate” and claiming that their attacks were indicative of an organization “on the run”.

    Iowa woman Amanda Garland Gravely was sitting in the drive-thru of a McDonald's with her children when she heard the furore inside the restaurant. "Automatically, just because of how irate she was, I took out my camera and recorded her to see how far it would go, just in case," she told KCCI 8 News. "And it just escalated really quickly." The Des Moines mum's video shows the woman arguing across the counter at restaurant staff about the pace of her McChicken when she demands her money back. In the video posted to Facebook on Saturday, the woman jumps onto...

    Operation Food Search is launching an expanded summer program this week, providing free meals to children under the age of 18 who would normally eat breakfast and lunch at school.

  • Maggots Eat Away China's Food Waste Problem at Fly Farms Across the Nation

    The individual larvae of black soldier flies, which are native to the Americas, can each eat double their weight of garbage every day, according to experts. The farm in Sichuan province then turns the bugs into a high-protein animal feed and their feces into an organic fertilizer. “These bugs are not disgusting! They are for managing food waste. You have to look at this from another angle,” said Hu Rong... ... But the black soldier fly, a rather long and slender critter, does more than eliminate waste. Once fattened, some of the larvae are sold live or dried to feed...

    Walking the aisles of your local supermarket may feel like a pretty mundane task. But 100 years ago, it was downright revolutionary. On September 6, 1916, hundreds of curious shoppers came out for the opening of a new grocery store at 79 Jefferson Avenue in Memphis, Tennessee. A festive atmosphere greeted them, complete with a beauty contest and a brass band. Smartly dressed employees handed out flowers to the ladies and balloons to children. The store—located on a busy commercial stretch just three blocks east of the river—was the perfect excuse for some afternoon shopping, and maybe a stroll along...
