    STOCKHOLM, Sweden - It's healthy and tasty, for those with expensive tastes. Farmers in northern Sweden are milking moose and making cheese, which they sell for a lot of dough — nearly $500 a pound. The buyers include upscale hotels and restaurants in Sweden. AP Photo Christer Johansson and his wife, Ulla, started their 59-acre dairy farm "Moose House" seven years ago in Bjursholm, 404 miles north of the capital, Stockholm. They claim it is the only moose dairy farm in Europe. The Johanssons currently have 14 moose in the fields but only three — "Gullan," "Haelga" and "Juna" —...

    July 12, 2003 Arnold N. Nawrocki, Cheese Innovator, Dies at 78By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS rnold N. Nawrocki, the man who made it practical to sell individually wrapped slices of cheese in the 1950's, died on June 30 at his home in Sun City, Ariz. He was 78. The cause was complications of kidney disease, his family said. Mr. Nawrocki first tried to wrap slices of cheese with wax paper before finding a profitable way to do it with cellophane while working at the Clearfield Cheese Company in Curwensville, Pa., in the 1950's. Wrapping the cheese — which required a...

    Cheese 'can be as addictive as morphine' An American doctor has claimed that cheese can be as addictive as morphine. Dr Neal Barnard, president of the Physicians Committee on Responsible Medicine, says cheese is addictive because it contains small amounts of morphine from cows' liver. In his book - Breaking the Food Seduction: The Hidden Reasons Behind Food Cravings and Seven Steps to End them Naturally - he explains why people are hooked on products like cheese, meat, sugar and chocolate. He says: "There's a biochemical reason many of us feel we can't live without our daily fix. "Cheese, for...

    Study: Yellowstone moose not used to predators The Associated Press MOOSE, Wyo.--Researchers who spent five years lobbing urine-soaked snowballs at moose in Alaska and Wyoming have noticed that moose in Grand Teton National Park do not react as dramatically to the scent of wolves and grizzly bears. Joel Berger and Sanjay Pyare, working for the Wildlife Conservation Society, suspect that's because Wyoming moose encounter predators less frequently. So Berger suspects wolf and grizzly populations have not fully recovered in the area in and around Yellowstone National Park. Berger hopes the study will prompt more considerations than raw numbers when...

Because emotions of pleasure and pain etc, have a tendency to hard wire a learned fact. It is called the law of effect, and it is the enemy's strategy that aims at bypassing reason.

    IT WILL horrify the French, put Daisy the cow out of a job, and bring the price of cheese crashing down. Scientists in New Zealand have cloned a herd of cows designed to produce genetically enhanced milk that almost turns itself into cheese. Cows have previously been genetically modified to produce medicinal proteins in their milk, but researchers have now created nine cows engineered to produce milk that can be turned into cheese far faster and more easily. The team led by Gotz Laible at AgResearch in Hamilton, New Zealand, engineered cow cells to overproduce milk proteins called caseins. This...

Mundell NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - A tiny piece of cheese, carbonized in the volcanic eruption that killed the citizens of Pompeii, is yielding up secrets as to how ancient Romans ate, lived and died. Using an electron microscope, anthropological researcher Dr. Luigi Capasso of the State University G. d'Annunzio in Chieti, Italy, has been able to pinpoint goats' milk cheese as a prime source of brucellosis--a debilitating joint disease that ravaged the ancient world. "Roman cheese was an important and continuous source of possible infectious...

Capable of surviving airdrops, rough handling and extreme climates, and just about anything except a GI's jaws, the new "pocket" sandwich is designed to stay "fresh" for up to three years at 26 °C (about the temperature of a warm summer's day), or for six months at 38 °C (just over body temperature).

    Fall is the time when forest greens begin to blaze orange, as hunting seasons open around the country. Each year, hunters kill more than 100 million animals, and while individual reasons for hunting vary, the industry that promotes and sustains hunting has just one motive: profit. According to the International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, America's 14 million hunters spend $22.1 billion each year for guns, ammunition, clothing, travel, and other related expenses. To justify hunting to a society ever more concerned about wildlife—including its conservation and humane treatment—the industry intensively promotes a set of tired myths. Learn the...
