  • Car that runs on wine and cheese showcased at eco-rally

    08/24/2011 7:13:24 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 30 replies ^ | August 23, 2011 | By Bryan Nelson
    Imagine pulling up to a gas station, and rather than being offered the usual choice between regular or premium unleaded, the gas pump instead read "Chardonnay" or "Pinot Noir." Not for you, of course, but for your car! Well, if one new experimental car, called the Lotus Exige 270E Tri-Fuel, ever catches on, this scenario may not be so far-fetched. The specialized Exige is capable of running on an ethanol fuel made from wine that isn't up to drinking grade, or whey, which is also a byproduct of the cheese or chocolate-making process. It was one of several new cars...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | August 12, 2011
    Nearly one-out-of-two Americans (48%) think that cuts in government spending are at least somewhat likely to lead to violence in the United States, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. But that includes just 13% who feel it’s Very Likely. Nearly as many Adults (44%), however, believe violence as the result of spending cuts is unlikely, but only 12% say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Americans under 50 raise the possibility of violence more than their elders. Most adults not affiliated with either party (58%) think spending cuts are likely to...

    Multiple sources have confirmed the fact that all three individuals arrested – James Stewart, Victoria Bloch and Sharon Palmer – are being charged with ‘conspiracy’ related to the sell of unpasteurized raw milk products. This reportedly includes sections of the California Penal Code Section 182a. Additional charges may also be pending, including a charge of ‘mislabeling cheese’ for Sharon Palmer, was arrested during a raid of Healthy Family Farms. As video of the raid on Rawesome Foods (also raided in 2010) demonstrates, Feds not only seized cash and raw milk supplies (much of which was also dumped out) but also...

    A new report issued by the Environmental Working Group calculates the carbon footprint of meats, cheeses, and a smattering of other foods. The results are good news for those who avoid red meat as well as vegans. They are not good news for vegetarian cheese lovers like this blogger. Special shout-out to those of you who eat baby sheep: You suck! Lamb is the single most carbon-intensive meat, .. (beef 2nd) Cheese comes out ahead of pork, farmed salmon, chicken and canned tuna. .. What it means, in practical terms: -Eating one less burger a week, is like driving 320...

  • City Greenmarket vendors banned from cutting the cheese (NYers need license to slice cheese)

    The state has a message for city Greenmarket vendors: Don't cut the cheese! The state Agriculture Department is enforcing a ban on slicing cheese in the open air - and shoppers complain that the regulation means pre-packaged cheese, which defeats the purpose of buying fresh. [SNIP] Vendors can obtain the license only if they slice cheese in a "permanent" building that excludes pests such as flies and has hot and cold running water and a three-compartment sink. "We do not want dirty utensils used at farmers' markets," Ziehm said.

    It's great news for cheese and butter fans - scientists have found that eating dairy food doesn't increase your risk of a heart attack. Nutritionists surveyed thousands of middle-aged people and found that even those who ate more than half a kilo of cheese did not seem to suffer from increased risk. Contrary to earlier beliefs that saturated fat might lead to a heart attack, researchers found that nutrients in dairy products actually counteract the harmful effects.

    ASHEVILLE, N.C. An enzyme found in cheese triggered false drug test results that led Buncombe County deputies to think a man with 91 pounds of tortilla dough was actually carrying that much cocaine, the sheriff said. Antonio Hernandez spent four days in jail in Asheville earlier this month before tests by a state lab came back showing he was carrying food instead of drugs. A deputy stopped Hernandez on May 1 and found what turned out to be a mix of cheese, shrimp and tortilla and tamale dough in his truck. A portable kit used by deputies changed colors, indicating...

    What do you call cheese that's not yours? Stolen. Michael Richards learned that punch line Saturday after, authorities said, he scuffled with a 7-Eleven cashier on Chicago's Near West Side who tried to stop him from helping himself to the nacho fixings. Richards, 50, of Chicago, bought a bag of chips from the store, then began pumping hot cheese from the toppings bar into the open bag, authorities said. But the cashier warned him that the nacho toppings bar is for use only by customers who purchase tortilla chips served in a traditional plastic tray, according to court records.

    A New York gallery on Sunday offered adventurous eaters the opportunity to sample cheese made from human breast milk, getting mixed reviews and some puzzled looks. The Lady Cheese Shop is a temporary art installation by Miriam Simun, a graduate student at New York University who hopes to use the craft of cheese-making to raise questions about the ethics of modern biotechnologies. "Cheese is the conversation starter," Simun said. "Some people are loving it, and some people are gagging." Simun found three nursing women willing to have their milk turned into cheese. She screened the milk for diseases, pasteurized it...

    It was an average sort of beast — gray, thick shouldered, with fat curling horns — spotted from the window of a moving car. But to Giuseppe Mozzillo, who grew up outside Naples in Italy’s buffalo mozzarella heartland, the animals dotting the Indian countryside looked enticingly familiar. “I said, ‘Wait a minute’,” he recalled. “These are the same buffalo. Their original environment is in India. The milk must be amazing. You must be able to make the best mozzarella in the world in India.” ...When he first arrived he was appalled to discover that the local idea of refrigeration often...

    BROCKWORTH, England - These are dark days for English cheese rollers, with the Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling canceled for the second year in a row. The Cheese Rolling Committee, which had planned to turn the event to a two-day festival of Cotswolds life, gave up Tuesday, the Stroud News and Journal reported, because of the backlash over plans to impose an entry fee. Cheese rolling, which dates back at least 200 years, involves rolling a Double Gloucester cheese downhill while contestants try to catch it. Richard Jefferies, a committee spokesman, said public reaction was fierce when organizers decided to levy...

Why does your tap water taste like sh*t and why don't Italians tear down buildings that no longer are in use? What's the idea of building a house out of cardboard? Denmark has the highest wages on Earth. Norway can compete. OK. But why is it that every time I visit our dear western neighbors I feel sorry for people driving wrecks instead of Volvo V70s?

This victory is big but the battle is not over. The State Assembly still has to pass the legislation and get it to Governor Walker before it can be signed into law opening the floodgates of similar actions across the country.

    The world is approching the ultimate crunch. The selfcentered mind made world created by human nature cannot survive the divine spirits of love truth and life. Self active human nature is filled with the spirits of hate, lies and death. These ill spirits are clearly displayed by the Islamo-Marxist-Chicago Gangster occupying the White House. The vessels dedicated to serving these ill spirits must pass away. We are in the third year after the inaugeration of Obama. This correlates to the third horse in the book of Revelation. In Revelation the black horse reveals famine and rationing. We see this before...
