    Baffled residents have been left scratching their heads after finding blocks of cheese popping up in bushes and gardens around an inner-Melbourne suburb. Residents have shared pictures of large tasty cheese blocks stashed in yards, pot plants, and reserves across Elwood in recent weeks, causing alarm among pet owners who have reported dogs vomiting up the dairy item. ... Vivienne Forbes said her friend’s pooch ate some of the mystery cheese without an upset, but she was baffled by where it came from. “My friend’s dog came out of the bushes near st kilda dog beach with a block of cheese in its...

    Parmigiano-Reggiano thieves are driving producers to drastic measures; “This is Fort Knox for cheese” SERRAMAZZONI, Italy—The thieves came in the thick of darkness. They used a blowtorch to pry open steel bars and sneaked through a narrow window before making off with their loot. Less than 24 hours later, they came back for more. In all, they made off with almost 25,000 pounds of Parmesan cheese. The target was Santa Rita Bio, a small producer of Italy’s famous Parmigiano-Reggiano. The thieves took 271 wheels of organic cheese, weighing 90 pounds each and with a total street value of $300,000. The...

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo concluded talks with North Korean General Kim Yong Chol with a toast of Islay scotch and a lavish dinner of steak, corn and cheese, confirming the saying that the way to man's heart is through his stomach. The top U.S. diplomat and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's right-hand man broke bread, and a few more things besides, at a luxury building complex on New York's East Side on Wednesday evening. ---snip--- Since time is of the essence, American officials have held preparatory meetings with North Korean delegations in both Singapore and the Demilitarized Zone,...

    Two South Florida McDonald's customers think the fast-food giant is being awfully cheesy with how it charges customers for a signature item that has been on its menu since 1975. According to a class-action lawsuit filed in Fort Lauderdale federal court on May 8, Cynthia Kissner, of Broward County, and Leonard Werner, of Miami-Dade, say they have had to pay for cheese they don't want on their Quarter Pounder sandwiches. The suit asks for at least $5 million. It comes down to this: On the menu, a hamburger at Micky D's is cheaper than a cheeseburger. According to the lawsuit,...

    As New Hampshire’s moose population struggles, the state fish and game department is asking people to submit photos of moose taken in New Hampshire from May 1 to May 15, as part of its spring moose survey. The photos help biologists monitor the health of the herd. One family in Merrimack got an up-close photo of a moose, which wandered into their yard and right up to the window. Resident Nichole DiVietro caught the moose’s surprise visit on video and posted it on YouTube, where it has received more than 10,000 views as of Thursday night. The video shows the...

    Unlike other food establishments that have static menu options, pizza is highly variable: Domino’s offers consumers 34 million different combinations of pizza. (iStock Photo) _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ As the owner of 18 Domino’s stores in Texas, I do not cut corners, whether on pizzas or complying with the law. Unfortunately, on May 7 the law will become especially burdensome and unhelpful to my customers. That day, President Trump’s FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb will implement a nationwide, Obama-era menu-labeling rule requiring restaurants with 20 or more locations to post in-store menu boards listing the calories of every item sold. I fully support efforts...

    The team has been investigating findings from an ancient rock shelter at a site named Takarkori in south-western Libya. It is desert now, but earlier in the Holocene age [our present age], some 10,000 years ago, it was part of the "green Sahara" and wild cereals grew there. More than 200,000 seeds - in small circular concentrations - were discovered at Takarkori, which showed that hunter-gatherers developed an early form of agriculture by harvesting and storing crops. But an alternative possibility was that ants, which are capable of moving seeds, had been responsible for the concentrations...The site has yielded other...

    I am writing this partially because I really want to know where the Freeper community stands on a whole on the issue of government workers and partially because of my disgust for certain members of the Freeper community. There is a member on a another post who I won't mention (but who I'm sure will make his/her presence known here) who thinks that just because I work for the federal government that I should be forced from my job and unto the streets begging for money. This person apparently has a very low opinion of anyone who works for the...

    Commentary: In a video posted online, a customer reportedly wants to check if a new battery is authentic -- using his teeth. Cue explosion.Some things might seem obvious. But even these things are worth mentioning occasionally. Please, therefore, allow me to say these words: Don't bite your phone battery. I base this apparently absurd entreaty on a video that's making its way around the web. It appears to show someone in a Chinese electronics store. As the Taiwan News reports, the customer was looking for a replacement battery for his phone last Friday. The news outlet insists that the action...
  • Good news: animals won’t shrink as the climate gets warmer

    Do animals get bigger as the climate they live in gets colder? According to a rule established in 1847, they do – which has had biologists concerned over what climate change might do to animal body size. But now an analysis of the weights and geographical locations of nearly 274,000 individuals from 952 bird and mammal species has challenged the idea. Bergmann’s rule, formulated in 1847 by German anatomist Carl Bergmann, states that an animal’s body size is negatively related to the temperature of its environment: smaller individuals of a species are found in hotter regions of the species’ range,...

    Would you try this cheesy drink?Tea and cheese are the latest trending ingredients for San Francisco’s newest Instagram worthy food item. STEAP Tea Bar, in San Francisco’s Chinatown, is now making a popular Asian drink known as cheese tea. “It’s a horrible name, but it’s not cheddar cheese or Velveeta on top of tea, it’s more of a whipped tea top,” said the owner of STEAP Tea Bar, Emil de Francesco, in an interview with SF Gate. The drink is iced black or green tea with a “cheese cream” topping made from mascarpone cheese. Judge: Ending Program to Protect Immigrants...

    A nib of cheese a day keeps the heart disease away. A recent analysis of more than 200,000 people showed that those who ate a little bit of cheese every day were less likely to develop heart disease compared to those who rarely or never ate it at all. The researchers from China and the Netherlands examined data compiled from 15 previous studies where most of the participants were tracked for at least 10 years. Overall, those who ate more cheese had a 14% lower risk of developing heart disease and were 10% less likely to have a stroke than...

    The Sunday after Thanksgiving often coincides with what Catholics know as the First Sunday in Advent. This year things are different because Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday and will double as the Fourth Sunday in Advent. Going back to its religious roots, Advent is a time of waiting for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus Christ, and for most Germans that first Sunday is the official “kick off” to the holiday season. It is common for families to have a beautifully decorated tabletop wreath with four candles in their homes, and one additional candle being lit every Sunday...
