    A group of Yale University graduate students announced Tuesday evening that they would be undertaking a hunger strike to pressure the administration into granting them better union benefits. The strike is taking place in front of University President Peter Saloveys home. "Yale wants to make us wait and wait and wait until we give up and go away," the eight members of the graduate student union Local 33 announced. "We have committed ourselves to waiting without eating."

    Chef Peng Chang-kuei (彭長貴), the founder of the famous Hunan-style restaurant chain Peng's Garden Hunan Restaurant (彭園湘菜館) and inventor of the world famous Chinese dish General Tso's Chicken, died on Nov. 30 at the age of 98 from Pneumonia. A native of Changsha, Hunan Province, Peng began training at the age of 13 under the tutelage of the famous Hunan chef Cao Jing-chen (曹藎臣), who was the family chef of Tan Yan-kai (譚延闓), the prime minister of the Nationalist government from 1926 to 1928. After WWII, he was put in charge of running Nationalist government banquets, and in 1949 he...

    A recent study published in the journal Nature Medicine reported that eating cheese specifically the aged kind containing the compound spermidine, as found in blue cheese was linked to a longer life in mammals when tested on mice. The mice do not only live longer when we supplement spermidine to the drinking water, but they are also healthier in terms of cardiac function, Frank Madeo, co-author of the study and a professor at the University of Graz in Austria, told Medical Daily.

    The city wants to spend big so there's no bang for Staten Island's bucks. Comptroller Scott Stringer is allowing the city to fast-track the contracting process on a $2 million plan to perform vasectomies on the borough's male deer. [Snip] An unrestrained and expanding deer herd can harm parks and private property, spread tick-borne illness and wander into roads more often, increasing the risk for deadly vehicle collisions. [Snip] If the city's plan works ... hundreds of bucks would be tranquilized, captured, given vasectomies and released back onto Staten Island parkland over the course of the three-year study. Mayor Bill...

    A horrifying threat has surfaced in the fight West Africans are waging against the epidemic of Ebola dogs digging up corpses of virus victims and feasting on the remains, then carrying the infection with them wherever they go next. A recent report in the Mail Online in the U.K. said villagers in Liberia were complaining dogs were found digging up the corpses of Ebola victims buried in shallow graves and eating them in the street.

    Business Insider ^ | Dec. 31, 1941 /Dec. 27, 2013 | Woody Guthrie
    If you're having trouble nailing down your New Year's resolutions, here's a good place to start. Seventy years ago, American folk legend Woody Guthrie scribbled in his journal a list of 33 tasks he would dedicate himself to in the coming year. According to WoodyGuthrie.org, he called them "Rulin's." At age 31, he was in the prime of his life, with a wife and three kids, as well as a good deal of life experience, having survived the Dust Bowl to make it out to California. As a result, it's a pretty unbeatable list. Check it out: 1. Work more...

    The latest in New York City dining? Eating in silence. A restaurant in Brooklyn's trendy Greenpoint neighborhood is serving up a four-course meal of organic, locally-sourced food, but isn't allowing any chit-chat. 'Eat' restaurant chef Nicholas Nauman says he was inspired to put on the occasional 'No Talking' affairs after spending time with Buddhist monks in India. He says the silence allows customers a chance to better experience the food. The restaurant's Facebook page says seats fill up fast at the no talking meals. It costs $40 for 4 courses. Epicurious.com Editor-in-Chief Tanya Steel says the silent eating experience sounds...

    Expecting to get a raise next year? It could be eaten up by your health care bill. In an effort to meet the affordability requirement of the Affordable Care Act, which kicks in next year and requires that workers spend no more than 9.5% of their income on premiums, more employers are turning to insurance plans in which premiums vary based on a persons salary, rather than having all workers pay a flat rate. That way, employees who make more money pay bigger premiums. Some 12% of companies used salary-based premiums in 2012, up from 10% in 2011, according to...

    Yadkowski, 33, came to Chick-fil-A when he was living in a group foster home created by Chick-fil-A founder and chairman S. Truett Cathy. "I tell the kids, 'This is not just selling sandwiches; it pays for your upbringing,'" says Yadkowski, a hardworking, happily married Southern Baptist who plans to work with Chick-fil-A for life. But Danielle Alderson, 30, a Baltimore operator, says she can't hire a good manager who, say, moonlights at a strip club because it would irk the company. "We are watched very closely by Chick-fil-A," she says. "It's very weird." Is it legal? There are no federal...

    New York Times ^ | March 20, 2012 | By ARIEL KAMINER
    Ethically speaking, vegetables get all the glory. In recent years, vegetarians and to an even greater degree vegans, their hard-core inner circle have dominated the discussion about the ethics of eating. From the philosopher Peter Singer, whose 1975 volume Animal Liberation galvanized an international movement, to the novelist Jonathan Safran Foer, who wrote the 2009 best seller Eating Animals, those who forswear meat have made the case that what we eat is a crucial ethical decision. To be just, they say, we must put down our cheeseburgers and join their ranks.

Hes been on the other side of the aisle talking with people. Hes invited them up to the White House to have beer. Hes invited them to come and watch the Super Bowl games, Waters said, as reported by...

    By Walter E. Williams (Archive) Wednesday, April 13, 2011 I've often said that I wish there were some humane way to get rid of the rich. If you asked why, I'd answer that getting rid of the rich would save us from distraction by leftist hustlers promoting the politics of envy. Not having the rich to fret over might enable us to better focus our energies on what's in the best interest of the 99.99 percent of the rest of us. Let's look at some facts about the rich laid out by Bill Whittle citing statistics on his RealClearPolitics...

    That's the reaction of the USA Dry Pea & Lentil Council to the president's urging of budget negotiators to make the difficult choices necessary to reach a "grand bargain" to raise the nation's debt limit. "It's not going to get easier, it's going to get harder. So we might as well do it now; pull off the Band-aid, eat our peas," Obama said at a White House news conference. A spokesman for the pea council said it wasn't interpreting the remarks in a negative context. "We take President Obama's comment on the need to 'eat our peas' as a reference...

    The Obama family has been working hard to show their indifference to the plight of middle America. Whether it's the president's golfing fetish, private air transportation for family dog Bo to a Maine vacation, or Michelle Obama's taxpayer subsidized trip to the Spanish Riviera, the gulf between the White House leisure class and the American middle class has grown to unprecedented proportions. Everyone is entitled to some R & R, though Mrs. Obama's jaunt is her eighth holiday this summer. Tone-deaf White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs defended vacation numero ocho by saying,

    In Greek mythology, the tale of the Trojan prince Tithonus is a tragic one. His lover, the goddess Eos, asks Zeus to grant him eternal life, but forgets to specify eternal youth. Time passes, and while the goddess of dawn stays young and beautiful, Tithonus degenerates into bedridden senility. (Snip) On the assumption that it has the same effect in people, some individuals have already adopted a restricted diet. The latest evidence suggests that while calorie restriction is indeed beneficial for humans, when it comes to lifespan extension, it may not be the whole story.
