  • Weird World of Food: Candy Sushi

    Herald Scotland ^ | Tuesday 5 February 2013 | Jill Castle
    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...

    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.

    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...

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...

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.

    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...

The latest news comes courtesy of a new report by NGO Monitor which published a report titled "NGO Reports to the Israeli Registrar of Non-Profits in 2012". It is simply flabbergasting to read and discover that European foreign governments are so involved in funding the far-left in Israel. At least thirteen political advocacy non-governmental organizations were funded by Norway, Denmark, Switzerland, and the Netherlands at a total tune of 21,671,115 NIS!

    Forget ancient maps and metal detectors. Those seeking hidden gold might do well to add bacteria to their toolbox. The bacterium Delftia acidovorans secretes a molecule that binds to dissolved gold and turns it into shiny, solid gold, scientists have discovered. The bacterium — and perhaps others like it — might one day process gold at mining sites or create gold nanoparticles with desirable properties, says geomicrobiologist Frank Reith, a research fellow at the University of Adelaide in Australia. In 2006 Reith and his colleagues reported finding biofilms of bacteria growing on solid gold grains in soil. Some of these...

    Dick Morris is out at Fox News, but Karl Rove is in. The future of the republic does not hinge on this development, but the divergence in the conservative commentators’ fates is nevertheless telling. Both, after all, had issued spectacularly wrong predictions on who would win last November’s presidential race. (Mitt Romney in a landslide!) Both were adamant, night after night, that their data were rock solid. On election night, Mr. Rove went so far as to challenge Fox News’ decision to call Ohio for President Obama, which effectively called the election. In the most entertaining bit of TV all...

    BEIRUT (AP) — These are tough times for Hezbollah. The Shiite militant group's uncompromising support for Syrian President Bashar Assad and allegations that it attacked Israeli tourists in Bulgaria are both unpopular in Lebanon, where it is increasingly accused of putting the interests of longtime patrons Iran and Syria over those of its home country. For many in the deeply polarized and war-weary nation, Hezbollah's involvement in last year's bus attack that killed five Israelis, if confirmed, constitutes further proof that the group is willing to compromise the country's security for external agendas. "Hezbollah uses the Lebanese people like sandbags,...

    The Missouri senate race was shaped by the inaction and lack of leadership from the state party. Period. I’ve spoken to many party insiders who agree.

His rejection of TARP was unconscionable, his bad-mouthing of NCLB intolerable, and he spoke too much about Jesus. snip The problem with this race, as I’ve written infinity-times before, began before the general election.

    The world is busy raving about first lady Michelle Obama's fringe but Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld begs to differ. After taking digs at Pippa Middleton, Adele, Heidi Klum and Russian men, next in line is the first lady. "I don't understand the change of hair ... Frankly, the fringe was a bad idea. It's not good," quoted the designer. Lagerfeld went on to say that Obama now looks like a news anchor. The criticism comes as a surprise as Lagerfeld had once admitted that he adores Obama. He had even called the first lady's face "magical" while talking to...

    Move-On-Up.org, an organization of black conservatives from around the St. Louis area, are organizing a protest of MSNBC host Touré Neblett, who is scheduled to speak at the Catholic St. Louis University this month.

Says the news release from organizer Stephanie Rubach: Pro-lifers of this region are outraged at the appearance of Touré Neblett, (co-host of The Cycle on MSNBC) after his out spoken stance glorifying his personal experience of abortion. Toure’ will be the keynote lecturer for the 2013...

    With less than a month left to replace the $1.2 trillion in automatic budget cuts scheduled for March. Republicans revealed Wednesday their party is divided over what is more important: protecting the Department of Defense or pushing spending cuts no matter the cost. Republican Sens. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and John McCain of Arizona continue to speak out about how devastating across-the-board spending cuts would be to the Pentagon, while their GOP colleagues in the House say sequestration, no matter the cost, may be the only way to force...

    ...... In the proceeding years, graffiti, against Jews and Muslims alike, has come to conceal the beauty and allure of the ancient city and area surrounding the Cave of the Patriarchs. Most of the graffiti appears on David Hamelech Street, the main street in Hevron adjacent to the Jewish community. Among the slogans appearing on almost every wall or storefront are “Death to the Jews,” “Stop the Occupation,” and various expletives in both Arabic and English. However, ten months ago, when Barak Arusi was appointed to lead the police unit in charge of the area surrounding the Jewish holy site,...

Jay Anania, U.S. ambassador to Suriname, said last year during his Senate confirmation hearing, “It is very much in the United States’ interest that Suriname remains a stable democratic partner.”

    Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) is starting his own super-PAC to counter a group conservatives fear will protect establishment candidates from primary challenges. The tweet by Walsh, the outspoken former congressman, is in response to the creation of the Conservative Victory Project, a super-PAC being launched by Karl Rove, formerly a top adviser to President George W. Bush. The founders of the Rove super-PAC intend to engage in GOP primary races and back the most electable candidate. The group argues that a number of untested conservative candidates made it through 2012 primaries, only to lose in the general election. The...
