    Johan Land has a life that stands out even among Silicon Valley’s tech elite: He’s the lead product manager at Waymo (formerly known as Google’s self-driving car project), a job that keeps him glued to computer screens and fixated on the future. Excelling at his work, Land said, requires an obsessive focus on it. But maintaining that passion — especially with his fourth child on the way — means knowing when to detach. Land’s secret to success: relaxing with a glass of wine in the back yard alongside his wife, kids and the family’s 13 chickens and three sheep. It’s...

    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.

    Many in the White House press corps have a raging case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. It flared up again when the White House released images of the commemorative eggs that will be available for purchase to celebrate the annual White House Easter Egg roll. Pastel versions of the official egg are $8.50. A gold version is $14.95. The eggs will feature the signature of President Trump and First lady Melania Trump. The seemingly innocuous announcement triggered public hackles from mainstream media reporters. New York Times reporter Julie Davis: “Forget those silly pastel/rainbow colors of White House East Egg Rolls past;...

    Bill and Hillary Clinton profess to have always been supporters of racial equality, but anecdotes published in a new book by his ex-lover claim otherwise. Hillary was heard calling mentally challenged children ´f*****g ree-tards´ and caught on record blurting out the terms ´stupid k**e and ´f***ing Jew b*****d´, while Bill called the Reverend Jesse Jackson a ´G**damned n****r´. Bill was also sued several times by blacks and Hispanics for violations of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Dolly Kyle - who was just 11 when she first crossed paths with Bill, dated him through high school and began sleeping with him

    A new Finnish study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that eating high-cholesterol foods does not increase the risk of heart disease--contrary to some previous findings. "Dietary cholesterol does not translate into high levels of blood cholesterol," said Dr. Luc Djoussé, an associate professor and heart disease researcher at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital, via TIME. During the study, researchers followed over 1,000 healthy men between the ages of 42 and 60-about a third of whom were carries of ApoE4-a gene variant that may increase the risk of both Alzheimer's disease (AD) and heart...

    Improbably Research, a comical science mag, awards the Ig Nobel Prize to honor "achievements that make people laugh, then make them think" -- sort of like a quirky Nobel Prize. SEE ALSO: You may be able to order Dunkin' Donuts delivery from your phone Among the winners this year is Professor Colin Raston -- who figured out how to unboil an egg. Boiling or cooking an egg is normally considered a chemical change, which is any change that results in the formation of new chemical substances -- and it's usually pretty irreversible. Professor Raston pretty much just blew our minds...

    f you find it difficult to create a perfectly cooked egg, the Yowk may be the answer to your kitchen struggles. New Egg Company is about to release its newest product—an egg that has been pre-cooked before it hits shelves and promises diners a “perfect soft boiled” experience. Just add boiling water to the special container and voilŕ—a perfectly runny egg in just five minutes. By our estimate, that’s the same amount of time it takes to make a soft boiled egg the labor-intensive, old fashioned way in a pot.
  • California’s Scrambled Eggs

    California has a way of living up to the worst regulatory expectations, as grocery shoppers across the country are discovering. The state’s latest animal-rights march is levying a punishing new food tax on the nation’s poor. Egg prices are soaring in California, where the USDA says the average price for a dozen jumbo eggs is $3.16, up from $1.18 a dozen a year ago, and in some parts of the state it’s more than $5. (SNIP) The state legislature realized this would put home-state farmers at a disadvantage, so in 2010 it compounded the problem by requiring that eggs imported...

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A woman from west Knoxville found a body under her deck while hunting for Easter eggs with her son Wednesday. The Knoxville News Sentinel reports Tara Hanouskova smelled an odor that progressively got worse over the past week, but could never pinpoint the source. On Wednesday, however, while hunting for Easter eggs with her three-year-old, she noticed something with a pair of feet clad in tennis shoes in the crawl space under her deck. She explained that the odor wasn't consistent nor strong; she only smelled it off and on until it got so bad she decided...

    In 2008, California voters endorsed Proposition 2 which banned the confinement of animals. California egg producers had to ensure that chickens had enough room to move around which negated so-called “factory farming” and would end up raising the price of eggs by 20%.Obviously this was a problem for California agriculture which would have trouble competing on price with free agriculture. And there’s only so much of a market for fair-trade free-range organic chickens lovingly raised in a Quaker school by social justice experts on a strict diet of granola and NPR broadcasts.And so California’s reds decided to instead raise the...

    Even the mayor says his taxes are too high. Egg Harbor Township Mayor James "Sonny" McCullough is selling his waterfront home because he says he can´t afford the property taxes, according to a report by the Press of Atlantic City. McCullough, 71, said he has been priced out of the home by local rates and by a township-wide revaluation last year, the report said. "It´s more than what I can afford," the mayor told the newspaper. "It´s kind of disappointing. I thought I would be able to live and die in my home, but it´s gotten to the point where

    BONAPARTE, Iowa, March 1 (UPI) -- Experts said a 4.1-ounce egg laid by an Iowa chicken is unusual, but not without precedent. Nathan Batten, 37, said Aussie, a black Australorp chicken, laid the egg measuring 3 1/2-inches long and 6 1/2 inches in circumference at his farm near Bonaparte Feb. 18, The Des Moines Register reported Monday. The egg weighs about twice as much as an egg labeled large by U.S. Department of Agriculture standards and exceeds the average 2 1/2 ounces for a jumbo egg. Sean Skeehan, who raises chickens at Blue Gate Farm in Chariton, said egg size...
