    This week on my weird food journey I’m entering the world of sweet treats as I try my hand at making candy sushi. Sushi seems to be like marmite, you either love it or hate it. It is also something which, I know from experience, is very difficult to make. I can understand why people may be put off by it: the raw fish, the fiddly almost unmasterable chopsticks, the scorching hot wasabi, the fact that it falls apart all over the table and your lap as soon as you bite into it, but I love it. Despite being initially...

    You know you’re getting old when every meal starts and ends with an admonition about how food will kill you. For a few years now, whenever my friends and I sit down to eat, the conversation veers toward illness, and how to avoid it, and somehow, it all comes down to food. No fat, no sugar, no salt, no wheat, no dairy, no bread, no carbs, no meat, no tuna, no alcohol, no caffeine, but maintain a well-rounded diet. Tap water is polluted with carcinogens, and bottled water is polluted with plastic, which is also a carcinogen; rainwater has acid,...

    Will Deep-sea Mining Yield an Underwater Gold Rush? Some environmentalists say the lure of precious minerals threatens ocean life and local cultures. A mile beneath the ocean's waves waits a buried cache beyond any treasure hunter's wildest dreams: gold, copper, zinc, and other valuable minerals. Scientists have known about the bounty for decades, but only recently has rising demand for such commodities sparked interest in actually surfacing it. The treasure doesn't lie in the holds of sunken ships, but in natural mineral deposits that a handful of companies are poised to begin mining sometime in the next one to five...

In addition, he: acknowledged in a plea agreement that he intended to...

    On Wednesday, comedian Chris Rock appeared on Capitol Hill with other celebrities to express support for Obama's gun control proposals. While there, he called the president America's "boss" and said that he and First Lady Michelle Obama are the country's parents. "I am just here to support the President of the United States," he said. "President of the United States is our boss, but he is also... you know, the president and the first lady are kinda like the mom and the dad of the country.

    Everyone's buzzing about Frank Ocean, Taylor Swift, and Mumford & Sons, but did you know that Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton are also nominated for Grammys this year. They're nominated in the often-overlooked Spoken Word category, which honors poetry, audio books, and other forms of audio storytelling. Michelle Obama, along with producers Scott Crewell and Dan Zitt, are nominated for the audio recording of her first audio book, American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America. "With one nomination," points out the Huffington Post's Julie Miller, "the First Lady has already out-Grammy-ied Justin Bieber...

    In an interview with Yahoo News, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell admits he could face a tough primary challenge from the Tea Party in his home state of Kentucky. Since its inception the Tea Party has been critical of McConnell's leadership despite his efforts to make peace with the movement. The strife has increased in recent weeks, with over a dozen Tea Party groups in Kentucky warning that a primary challenger is forthcoming. McConnell says he doesn't have a sense of entitlement to the senate seat, and expects a vigorous campaign.

    Herald Scotland ^ | Saturday 2 February 2013
    An investigation is under way after batches of halal meat products sent to prisons were found to contain traces of pork DNA. Pies and pasties have been withdrawn from a number of prisons following the discovery by the Food Standards Agency. UK Justice Minister Jeremy Wright said the incident was absolutely unacceptable. Under Islamic law, Muslims are strictly forbidden to eat pork. The products had been distributed to a number of prisons in England, with no indication that the problem has affected prisoners north of the Border. Mr Wright said the incident was being investigated as a matter of urgency....

    After a long and chilly four years, Barack Obama hopes to reset his relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he makes his first trip to Israel as president this spring. Obama won’t be carrying any big new Mideast peace plans when he embarks on the trip, which will also include a stop in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, officials say. But repairing the relationship with Netanyahu, a key ally with whom Obama has often been at odds, could itself be a crucial step toward reopening a pathway to peace in the region. … Despite the deep ties between the...

    Charlotte, NC - Senate Bill 932 is scheduled to be heard THIS FRIDAY 2/at 1:35 p.m. in the State Capitol by the Senate Health (HTH) and Public Safety, Intergovernmental and Military Affairs (PSM) committees. SB 932, introduced by state Senators Josh Green (D-3), Suzanne Chun Oakland (D-13), Clarence Nishihara (D-17), Russell Ruderman (D-2), and Maile Shimabukuro (D-21) is a terribly flawed mental health bill that must be defeated. Under this proposed legislation, Hawaiians would be subject to warrantless entry into their homes, warrantless seizure of their firearms and other weapons based solely on a mere “report” by a so-called “mental...

    Rule Of Law: A federal judge rules that border agents can proceed with a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of DHS directives ordering the agents to break the law — or have their careers threatened. When those charged with enforcing existing federal law on immigration have to sue their bosses to be allowed to do their jobs, it doesn't say much for the prospects of immigration reform being hammered out in Congress, allegedly a legislative priority of a president who picks when, how and if he'll enforce the law. On Friday, Federal Judge Reed O'Conner ruled that 10 Immigration and Customs...

    Karl Rove's American Crossroads has started a new group to make sure the 2014 Senate races produce zero Todd Akins. But it turns out some conservatives like Rove less than Akin. -snip- The Senate Conservatives Fund's Matt Hoskins told Politico the Crossroads group was the "Conservative Defeat Project." Free Republic posters mocked "Tokyo Rove." On Breitbart.com, Ben Shapiro called Rove and his cohorts, "The Bush insider team that helped lead to the rise of Barack Obama." RedState editor Erick Erickson said the Conservative Victory Project was sure to pick losers. "I dare say any candidate who gets this group’s support...

    BREAKING: Obama to hand over drone documents ahead of Hagel hearing Posted by CNN White House Producer Lesa Jansen Washington (CNN) - Amid new controversy over his administration's targeted killing of American citizens, President Barack Obama has yielded to demands from Congress to turn over to them classified Justice Department legal advice justifying the policy. The president's move comes on the eve of confirmation hearings Thursday for his CIA director-nominee John Brennan, and complaints from senators - including several Democrats - about secrecy surrounding the drone policy.

    Those who may have noticed during their morning commute a man standing on the median of North Broad and Vine streets decked out in a white robe and pointed hood can rest assured – he's in no way a member of the Ku Klux Klan. "I'm protesting black-on-black murder," said Sixx King, who is himself black. [snip] "I'm making a stance that the number of African Americans killed have surpassed the number of victims in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars," he said.

    Drone Wars: A government memo concludes the U.S. can order the killing of American citizens believed to be tied to al-Qaida, with the White House acting as judge, jury and executioner. Gee, what about due process? Those of us who remember the condemnation and scorn heaped on President George W. Bush by liberals and civil libertarians for his post-9/11 security measures are bemused by the Obama administration's official declaration of the right to kill Americans abroad through the use of drone strikes. And it's based on the idea that a single White House official can decide whether the individual in...
