  • Teens kill endangered birds, setting back conservation efforts 10 years

    That gruesome sight in December 2015 soon became a crime scene, one that eventually implicated six students and recent graduates of a prestigious Honolulu prep school whose alumni include former president Barack Obama. While on a camping trip the night before the hiker’s arrival, authorities alleged, the boys and young men had hiked to the Ka’ena Point Natural Area Reserve and mercilessly slaughtered at least 15 Laysan albatrosses, federally protected birds that have been the focus of a 26-year-long conservation effort. Nearly a dozen of their eggs were crushed; six other eggs failed to hatch due to the death of...
  • Ever Wonder Why Eggs Are Shaped Like Eggs? Scientists Say They've Figured It Out

    But the universe of wild bird eggs is far weirder and more diverse than the oval products on the supermarket shelf. Hummingbirds lay eggs shaped like Tic Tac mints - "perfect little ellipses," per ornithologist and evolutionary biologist Mary Stoddard. Sandpiper eggs come to peaks, in the manner of teardrops. Owls plop out tight spheres not unlike ping-pong balls ... scientists linked egg shapes to birds' flight behavior. Stronger fliers, such as swallows, had elongated or pointy eggs. Birds that couldn't fly so far or fast had rounder, more symmetric ones... Aristotle, said Douglas G.D. Russell, curator of the egg...

  • Now that Free Republic is up again - and that's a darn good thing - what size eggs should I buy?

    05/19/2017 5:56:11 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 86 replies
    I don't know. Medium. Large. Extra Large. Jumbo? What size eggs should I buy? I just boiled a dozen Extra Large Eggs and they were very good. Sometimes the large eggs get overcooked when I boil them. Brown eggs or white eggs? I like both. I like taking boiled eggs to work for lunch - to have with my sardines. But sometimes I like my eggs fried over easy. Eggs are good. Very good.

    Shakshouka is a Middle-Eastern egg dish, very similar to an Italian version called ‘Eggs in Purgatory’, both poached in a spicy tomato sauce. Eggs are not just for breakfast, and sometimes the perfect comfort dinner is an egg one. You can make this with fresh or canned tomatoes, and I like this one from the website Add a Pinch:’ve always been very partial to the cookbooks that I began with when I was young; one of my favorite authors has always been Molly Katzen, whose ‘Enchanted Broccoli Forest’ was one of my go-to books when I was experimenting with...

    Dinosaur Eggs Not Bird-Like After All by Tim Clarey, Ph.D. * Evidence for Creation › Evidence from Science › Evidence from the Life Sciences › Life Was Created Fully Functional › Variation Is Limited within Kinds Prevailing secular theory considers birds to be living dinosaurs, but new science is hatching to support the stark differences between these creatures. The data demonstrate dinosaurs were more likely cold-blooded like all modern reptiles. Dr. Gregory Erickson of Florida State University and his colleagues from the University of Calgary and the American Museum of Natural History recently published their findings on dinosaur incubation periods...
  • 'Anti-vegan' Christmas cake ad provokes outcry in Italy

    Panettone is an Italian cake filled with raisins and sultanas, and is a typical Christmas treat. But the seemingly harmless dessert has led to backlash after some vegan activists claimed a famous cake-maker was mocking the plant-based diet. It’s all because of a TV advert created by Motta, a company which has been churning out panettone since 1919 and intended to celebrate Christmas culinary traditions in its festive ad campaign. The 30-second clip shows the preparation of the typical cake, and as eggs are cracked and dough kneaded, the voiceover says:“To make our panettone, we could have used tofu, papaya,...

    The world’s oldest woman has cracked the secret to her longevity: eggs. Emma Morano, who will turn 117 on November 27, gobbles up at least two eggs a day, and has done so for 90 years — for an egg-streme lifetime total she says is over 100,000. Born in 1899, Morano, of Verbania, Italy began eating eggs religiously when she was 20 years old, after a doctor diagnosed her with anemia and told her to consume two raw eggs and a cooked one each day.

    I'm really not much of a cook at all. I don't have the patience or the concentration. It's therefore no surprise that I would fall back on cooking eggs - fried, boiled, or poached. When I fry the eggs, I prefer to use bacon grease, but butter works just fine. So does olive oil if I'm in a healthy mood. I recently ran across a scrambled eggs recipe that used Worcestershire sauce: You Never Knew You Needed Scrambled Eggs With Worcestershire Sauce I tried it and I liked it. The link led me to a couple other links: This Is...

    One of the most interesting food writers I’ve encountered, and an American Treasure, is John Thorne, who for many years produced a snail-mail newsletter called ‘Simple Cooking’. The newsletter doesn’t seem to be produced anymore, but fortunately we have the many books that he and his wife Matt Lewis have published. These are just delightful books to read, even if you aren’t going to cook any of the recipes in them:"I remember that one of Thorne’s newsletters contained a recipe for ‘Puffed Wild Rice’, which was suggested as a snack, a topping for salad, or even an addition to...

    Mosquito moms can transmit zika virus to their offspring — at least in the lab, a new study shows. If this also happens in nature, the virus might be able to survive in tough mosquito eggs even when cold weather, dry spells, and pesticides kill off the infectious adults. Mosquitoes can transmit viruses in the same family as Zika, such as yellow fever and dengue, to their offspring — but it wasn’t clear whether this was also true for Zika. So scientists led by Robert Tesh, an epidemiologist at the University of Texas Medical Branch, injected Zika virus into approximately...

    Chaos erupted once again outside a Donald Trump rally, with protesters attacking Trump supporters and burning the American flag. One woman who was yelling back at protesters ended up being pelted with eggs by the protesters. Some are criticizing the San Jose police for letting the rally go on for far too long and grow out of control before they stepped in. On Fox and Friends this morning, Geraldo Rivera said these violent displays are going to hurt the Democrats' chances in November. "The violence is absolutely the worst thing that can possibly happen to the Democrats. Every time you...

    SAN JOSE, Calif. — Donald Trump supporters were mobbed and assaulted by protesters on Thursday night after the candidate's campaign rally in California. The violence broke out after the event in San Jose wrapped up just before 8 p.m. local time (11 p.m. ET). Some Trump supporters were punched. One woman wearing a "Trump" jersey was cornered, spit at, and pelted with eggs and water bottles. Police held back at first but eventually moved in. San Jose Police Sgt. Enrique Garcia told NBC News that several protesters were arrested and one officer was assaulted in the melee.

    I don’t think there’s any more controversial food than eggs. By and large, the reason we have been told to avoid eating eggs is because they contain cholesterol, and indeed that’s true. A typical egg may contain as much as 200 mg of cholesterol. But does that mean we shouldn’t eat eggs? To answer this question, researchers in Finland conducted an extensive study in which they evaluated two parameters. First they looked at whether or not individuals developed coronary artery disease. In addition, they looked at a parameter called carotid intimal thickening. Basically this is a study, using ultrasound, that...

    How to Pasteurize Eggs at home lots of recipes that use fresh raw eggs (either the white, yolk or both) as a primary ingredient. This is common for dressings, mayonnaise, egg nog, ice creams and frosting. Most eggs are perfectly safe to eat and according to the American Egg Board only about one in 20,000 eggs may contain salmonella. Thats all fine for now but what about SHTF eggs? one should error on the side of caution when it pertains to food safety. Thankfully, the risk of salmonella can be avoided by using pasteurized eggs in your favorite raw egg...
