    Federal workers and contractors not getting paid have had to resort to seeking handouts as the record-breaking shutdown continues for a fourth week. In Washington, DC, the line for free meals stretched down Pennsylvania Avenue between the White House and the Capitol because workers say any little bit helps when no money is coming in. “Accepting that I’m here is demoralizing,” said a teary Blen Woldearegay, a Department of Interior contractor who is worried about possible foreclosure on her new home. “It’s hard. It’s hurtful. I’m not the type of person that likes to do that [ask for help] just...

    More than 900,000 cubic yards of cheddar, American and Swiss currently sit in cold storage across the United States, enough cheese to form a wheel the size of the U.S. Capitol building. The excess is the biggest the country has seen since the government started keeping track a century ago, and it's 16 percent larger than the cheese surplus of 2016 when the government offered to buy up $20 million worth of excess cheese... "Part of it is changes in the domestic use of that milk." Another factor is trade — "a self-inflicted wound," Novakovic says. And there is growing...

    Doctors, staff and patients at a hospital in Alaska’s largest city got the surprise of a lifetime when a large moose wandered inside for a quick snack. Video footage captured Monday by a worker at Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage shows the moose poking around some greenery near an entrance before it starts gazing in the camera’s direction. “Didn’t think we’d have a pet moose,” Stephanie Hupton, who works in billing at a physical therapy office inside the hospital and captured the footage, told the Associated Press. She told KTUU that she started recording after a patient mentioned to security...

    <p>After 40 years of dairy farming, I sold my herd of cows this summer. The herd had been in my family since 1904; I know all 45 cows by name. I couldn’t find anyone who wanted to take over our farm — who would? Dairy farming is little more than hard work and possible economic suicide.</p>
  • PETA: Cow's milk a symbol of white supremacy

    PETA: Cow's milk a symbol of white supremacy Zac Self 11:24 AM, Oct 21, 2018 5 hours ago According to PETA’s latest press release, cow’s milk is a symbol of white supremacy. In a statement, the animal rights group links the dairy industry’s treatment of the cows to the concept of white supremacy. “Aside from ‘lactose-tolerant’ white supremacists, cow’s milk really is the perfect drink of choice for all (even unwitting) supremacists, since the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings,” the organization said in part. “PETA is trying to wake people up to the implications of choosing...

    IMRAN Khan has suggested Pakistan bans imports of CHEESE in a bid to boost the country’s struggling economy - prompting outrage from the nation's pizza lovers. The bizarre ban, slammed by critics and opposition leaders, is being considered along with embargoes on other foreign products such as luxury cars and phones. Newly-elected Prime Minister Khan believes the move will help the country stave off a $12 billion bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), reports The Times. A water crisis has also prompted the former Pakistani cricket captain to ask for donations from Pakistanis around the world to help build...

    Residue on 7,200 year old pottery found in Croatia has pushed back the dawn of cheese making in the Mediterranean. The find resets the timeline of agriculture in the region, with fermented dairy products being made a mere five centuries after milk was first stored. But its innovation was more than just a culinary milestone for dairy connoisseurs – it could have been a life saver. … Archaeological data shows people have been growing crops and raising livestock in the region for roughly 8,000 years.

    France does not want to finance a populist Europe, the country’s foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has indicated, just as the fight over the EU’s new long-term budget begins in earnest. These strong words were said in Paris on Wednesday during the annual conference of French ambassadors, a meeting at which the French head of diplomacy officially indicates the most important directions of the country’s foreign policy. 71-year-old Le Drian, who after the victory of French President Emmanuel Macron took the helm of French diplomacy, said that France and Germany intend to work out a common position on migration before...

    Ptahmes was Mayor of Memphis and high-ranking official under the Pharaohs Sethi I and Ramses II (1290-1213 BC) of the XIX dynasty. His tomb is located in the south of the Causeway of the Pharaoh Unas which yields a number of tombs dated to the New Kingdom. It was rediscovered in 2010 after a part of it was revealed in 1885 and lost under the sands at the end of the 19th century. During the 2013/2014 excavation season, Cairo University archeologists found broken jars at the site. One jar contained a solidified whitish mass, as well as canvas fabric that...

    Last month, archaeologists cracked open a tomb excavated in Alexandria, Egypt, revealing three skeletons bathing in an crimson pool of sludgy sewage. In response, tens of thousands around the world immediately petitioned for the right to sip from the freshly uncorked casket of amontillado. (Spoiler: It hasn't worked out.) But fear not, coffin connoisseurs: There's a new artisanal artifact in town -- the world's oldest solid cheese, over 3,000 years in the making. The tomb of Ptahmes, mayor of Memphis, the ancient capital of Egypt during the 13th century BC, contains quite the trove of treasures. First uncovered in 1885,...

    SYDNEY, NSW — A Missouri nun who was caught trying to smuggle cocaine through the heels of her shoes at an Australian airport said her online boyfriend tricked her into doing it. Denise Woodrum, 51, was arrested last year after customs officers at Sydney Airport found two pounds of drugs in the high heels of the shoes she had packed, according to Newsweek. It was Hendrik Cornelius, a man Woodrum met online, who duped her into transporting the drugs, said Rebecca Neil, Woodrum’s attorney. "She went on this trip thinking she was bringing artifacts for him," her attorney said. Woodrum...

    What can be said about Stinking Bishop that hasn’t been said a million times before? We’ve wanted to include a feature on this legendary cheese for a while now but it’s become so famous that most cheese lovers are fully aware of the story: Charles Martell first produced his perry-washed rind cheese in 1972 on Laurel Farm, in Dymock, Gloucestershire by chance: he didn’t set out to make cheese, it came about as a sideline while conserving the rapidly diminishing breed of Gloucestershire cows. When it appeared in the Wallace and Gromit film, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit in which...
