    A radical new guide to the ever-widening world of cheese takes an accessible approach: Begin with what you love Up to now, cheese guides have tended to focus more on where and how cheese is made than on how best to enjoy it. Meanwhile, according to the USDA, Americans’ annual consumption of natural (as opposed to processed) cheese increased from 19.3 to 29.47 pounds per capita between 1995 and 2015, and the range of cheeses to choose from has become downright daunting. The time has come for “The Book of Cheese: The Essential Guide To Discovering Cheeses You’ll Love,” published...

    WILLIAM NARDI - UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS BOSTON SEPTEMBER 5, 2017 Earth as lover, not mother Four years ago, when art Professor Elizabeth Stephens filmed the documentary “Ecosexual Love Story,” in which she and her partner licked trees, played with mud, and made love with the environment while naked, the term “ecosexuality” was still somewhat unknown. But a lot has happened since then, and ecosexuality isn’t such a mystery anymore — Google trends show interest in the term has increased exponentially over the last 12 months, seemingly exploding. That interest can be traced in part back to Stephens, a UC Santa...

    The buttery cheese, named after the word “doormat” for a very specific reason, dates to the 17th century. Naomi Tomky August 15, 2017 When my Quebec City tour guide mentions that the island we’re heading to has the oldest cheese in North America, I’m briefly concerned. A grotesque vision of a 150-year-old pickle my friend Harriet once told me about flashes before my eyes. But, what I learn upon arriving at the Île d'Orléans, 15 minutes from the capital, is that Paillasson is simply the oldest style of cheese in North America—it’s made fresh on the island, tastes extremely good...

    The Daiya brand of vegan cheese was acquired by a corporation that tests on animals. What are vegans to do? heese has, improbably, been a pretty big success story for vegans in the past few years. Vegan pizza, thanks to the evolution of non-dairy cheeses, entered a golden age; a gourmet vegan cheese shop opened in Brooklyn, bringing a snobbishness once only employed by meat-craving omnivores to the borough. Vegan cheese used to mean slimy soy products, but it has significantly evolved thanks to products made from cashews, the high fat content of which makes for a good cheese-like texture,...
  • You can now add this cheese to your list of anti-inflammatory foods (seriously!)

    Sticking to an anti-inflammatory diet isn’t easy. It involves cutting ties with gluten, dairy, and (of course) sugar. Sure, there are some amazing nut cheeses, but they aren’t typically what’s being cut into cubes and passed around on Bachelorette Mondays at your friend’s place. Good news: Scientists just endorsed a way for you to get your cheese fix while still sticking to your meal plan. According to Metro UK, a new study out of Korea found that the probiotics in Swiss cheese actually have the ability to reduce inflammation and strengthen your immune system. Is your mind-blown? A new study...

    DETROIT (WWJ) – Would you like to lose weight, have more energy, better health? Then stop eating cheese. That’s according to Dr. Neal Barnard, who’s down on dairy. Barnard says while Americans seem to have a love affair with cheese, it’s more of an unhealthy addiction. He makes his case in his book “The Cheese Trap.” “I think it’s addicting; and I don’t use the addicting word lightly,” he told WWJ’s Dr. Deanna Lites. “There are actually opiate chemicals in it that attach to the very same brain receptors as other opiates, and I’m going to argue that it’s probably...

    A Swedish man who spotted a rare white moose returned the next day and managed to capture video of the creature taking a dip in a local lake. Hans Nilsson said he has been trying to catch a glimpse of the rumored white moose -- sometimes known as an elk in Sweden -- in the Eda region for several years, but he never actually found one until last week. Nilsson posted a video to Facebook showing his second encounter with the alabaster moose, one day after his original sighting. "This white elk bull is local to the area. I saw...

    Orlando Sentinel ^ | 08/14/2017 | By Steven Lemongello
    Augustus Invictus, a former Libertarian Party candidate for U.S. Senate from Orlando most famous for saying he sacrificed a goat and drank its blood, had an important role in the white nationalist “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville on Saturday. Invictus, 34, was listed as a featured marcher for the Saturday event, which was roundly condemned after marchers carried Nazi flags, performed Hitler salutes and chanted white supremacist and anti-Semitic sayings while carrying torches. He could not be reached for comment Monday. Invictus lost the 2016 Libertarian primary for U.S. Senate in Florida to Paul Stanton, but not before state...

    From the same people who declared that milk was a symbol of white supremacy comes this blisteringly-hot take: cheese is the most sexist food there is, cows are regularly raped on farms, and the act of eating cheese is failing to combat sexism. "Contrary to popular belief," explains PETA, cows only produce milk when they're pregnant or have just given birth. In order to keep producing milk, PETA describes how cows are "raped" to become pregnant again and again and how their calves are treated immediately after birth.

  • French Left Outraged Online Over Massacre of Camembert Cheese

    French people are in uproar after a picture was posted online of a Camembert cheese that had clearly been cut in a flagrant violation of fromage etiquette. The post on on the French page of the site Reddit was titled "How my mother cuts Camembert..." (Le maničre dont ma mčre coupe le camembert), It was flooded with comments from French people, who reacted with a mixture of mockery and anger at the way the famous French cheese from Normandy had been cut. "We've guillotined people for less than that," wrote Raleur Francais. Another wrote "... well you just can't choose...

    Hillary Clinton sits behind the resolute desk in the Oval Office, pulling out a large blue binder and a jar of hot peppers—her typical snack as the leader of the free world. It’s 9:30 p.m., and madam president spent the day successfully rallying House Republicans and Democrats behind a health care bill that will improve upon her predecessor’s landmark initiative, the Affordable Care Act. The bill passed an hour ago, but she isn’t anywhere near done fulfilling her duties to the American people. “I won’t be taking any more calls,” Clinton tells senior adviser Huma Abedin, who is walking toward...

  • DONALD TRUMP'S APPROVAL RATING SINKS FURTHER AS DISAPPROVAL HITS RECORD HIGH

    Newsweak ^ | 6/12/17 AT 6:21 PM | TIM MARCIN
    Considering former FBI Director James Comey testified last Thursday that the president was a liar, last week wasn't particularly great for Donald Trump. And this week isn't off to a great start for the president, either. Trump's approval rating sunk to just 36 percent in the latest Gallup daily tracking poll released Monday. That's nearly the lowest point for Trump in the Gallup survey. Trump previously hit 35 percent approval on March 28 shortly after the Republican Obamacare replacement, the American Health Care Act, failed before the House of Representatives could even take a vote. Trump's disapproval rating, meanwhile, has...

    AN AVALANCHE OF CHEESE pours into the test kitchen at the Denver headquarters of Leprino Foods, the mozzarella supplier to Pizza Hut, Domino's and Papa John's. First, thin wisps of low-moisture mozzarella, then a diced alternative, followed by an "artisanal" version, cut short and wide. Then come flavored cheeses made with a mozzarella base, as well as provolone, cheddar and Monterey Jack. Cooks bring out a take-and-bake pizza, a New York-style pie and a stuffed crust, fresh from nearly a dozen ovens. Another course features frozen food made with Leprino products, including ham-and-cheddar Hot Pockets, Stouffer's lasagna and Smart Ones...

Shannon Seville of Flagstaff said she and her boyfriend, Joel Floyd, were cruising the Forest Service roads near the city in their new Toyota Land Cruiser earlier this week when they stopped to observe a bear. The video shows the bear menacing a crying creature concealed by a fallen branch, but is soon revealed...
