  • 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...

    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...

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...

But Irish citizens responded angrily to the plan, which was likened to the "Let them eat cake" comment by Marie Antoinette that provoked the French revolution. The cheese will be distributed via collection centres in towns and cities across Ireland. Mr Smith...

    REPUBLICANS SAY their midterm election victory shows that the American people want to shrink the federal government and make it smarter. If that's true, and if the new GOP majority in the House wants to deliver on its promises, we can think of no better place to start than Dairy Management. This little-known appendage of the Agriculture Department exists for one purpose: to encourage Americans to drink more milk and eat more cheese, so dairy farmers can make more money. This is not our idea of an urgent national priority. To the contrary, annual cheese consumption in the U.S. has...

The research, published in Ecology Letters, also casts new light on how malnutrition early in life can lead to the disorder in both moose and humans. The study, which began in 1958, was carried out on Isle Royale, a wilderness island National Park in lake superior, with only one large predator, the wolf and one large prey species, the moose.

    Two sisters from the northwestern B.C. community of Kitimat have both had close encounters with moose on the loose. A month ago, Yvonne Studley, 49, was badly injured when she hit a moose with her vehicle, so last Friday her sister decided to visit her in Vancouver General Hospital. But sister Connie Everitt, 51, also hit a moose and ended up in hospital. In the first accident a month ago, Studley was on her way home from a business trip when a moose ran in front of her car.
