A GPS tracker strapped to the leg of a chicken, says Metcalfe, means "that people who potentially will buy that chicken will know every step that that chicken has taken." ZhongAn Online, a Chinese insurance company, has already outfitted more than a 100,000 chickens with trackers. The sensors upload information, such as how much exercise each chicken gets and what it ate. They are also working on facial-recognition technology so that consumers can one day make sure the...

    CNN is shining a light on three of the most consequential races in 2018 including the Texas bid for U.S. Senate through debates or town halls in the coming weeks.

Ted Cruz (R) declined CNNs invitation to participate in the town hall, a CNN statement noted. So ORourke will be featured in a live, one-hour town hall with CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash in South Texas on Oct. 18....

    So you can imagine how upsetting it was for me when Chick-fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy, proudly came out as a homophobe in 2012 by claiming, “We are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,’ and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.” Even worse, the company put its money where Cathy’s vile mouth was by donating millions of dollars each year...

You know, the top-secret Original Recipe chicken, the one with 11 herbs and spices that (reportedly) only two executives have access to at any one time. As part of a countrywide campaign to slim down, KFC UK is heeding the new guidelines issued by Public Health England, which recommends that British adults consume only 400 calories at breakfast and 600 apiece at lunch and dinner.

  • Monthly Cooking Thread - June 2018

    Last week we tried roasting a whole chicken in the Instant Pot, and used the Lemon and Herb Chicken recipe on the Instant Pot website. The meat itself turned out amazing, very moist and tender; but as we suspected when discussing this last month, the skin was not crispy. We got around this by giving the chicken a few minutes under the broiler after cooking, and as Liz suggested one could use a chefs torch. We came away from the experience thinking that its a great way to do a chicken if you want to use the meat in a...

    Twelve states are trying to take a California egg law to the Supreme Court, according to a lawsuit filed Monday. A dozen states filed the lawsuit Monday to block a California law requiring any eggs sold in the state must come from hens that have enough space to stretch out in their cages, reported The Associated Press. This law has cost consumers up to $350 million annually due to the higher egg prices, according to the Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley. The states suing are Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Utah and Wisconsin.
