Human Rights Council, which was discussing the most recent report by a U.N.-mandated independent commission of inquiry into the conflict.The report, released late last month and roughly covering the first half of this year, recorded atrocities by the Assad regime and by...

    Pear and parmesan has been named ice cream flavour of 2014, just in time for spring. Stallholders have raised eyebrows about this year's more left-field choice. Last year, Italian ice cream producers Uniteis named lemon and basil as the flavour of the year for Germany. But on Tuesday, they passed the title onto pear and parmesan. Judges said they felt the flavour was a mix of an old favourite with a new trend – veering away from the herb and fruit pairing towards a salty option. Ideally, said Uniteis, only the highest quality cheese flakes should be used. But Berlin's...

    HAGERSTOWN, Md. — When the Good Humor ice cream plant closed here two summers ago, more than 400 jobs and a stable, punch-the-clock way of life melted away, another in a string of plant closings that have battered this once-proud manufacturing town. The country lost 6 million factory jobs between 2000 and 2009, and in Maryland, the job losses have been catastrophic. There were about 172,000 manufacturing jobs in the state in 2000, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics; today there are about 104,000, a nearly 40 percent drop.

Because of its alcoholic content, you have to be of legal age to purchase a tub of the ice cream.

    Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain might be in the midst of his campaign’s first crisis, all thanks to ice cream. Now leading in at least one national poll, Cain is frequently asked if he is the new political flavor of the month. Cain’s canned response is: “Haagen-Dazs black walnut tastes good all the time.” Here’s the problem: Haagen Dazs no longer makes black walnut ice cream. It was a limited edition, and is no longer available. So, in a manner of speaking, you might say that Haagen Dazs black walnut was – by definition – a flavor of the month.

    What is often in shredded cheese besides cheese? Powdered cellulose: minuscule pieces of wood pulp or other plant fibers that coat the cheese and keep it from clumping by blocking out moisture. One of an array of factory-made additives, cellulose is increasingly used by the processed-food industry, producers say. Food-product makers use it to thicken or stabilize foods, replace fat and boost fiber content, and cut the need for ingredients like oil or flour, which are getting more expensive. Cellulose products, gums and fibers allow food manufactures to offer white bread with high dietary fiber content, lowfat ice cream that...

    NPR ^ | March 1, 2011 | Breast Milk Ice Cream Seized From London Store
    Ice cream containing mothers' breast milk has been confiscated from a London shop that caused a stir — and some long lines — when it introduced the product last week. Westminster Council officials say the flavor, dubbed Baby Gaga, must undergo testing to ensure it doesn't pose a health threat. "Selling foodstuffs made from another person's bodily fluids can lead to viruses being passed on and in this case, potentially hepatitis," said Brian Connell of the Westminster Council, according to Reuters. According to the news agency, Icecreamists founder Matt O'Connor calls the council's concerns "complete rubbish." "If the ice cream...

    First Lady Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia and family dog Bo will fly to Hawaii on Saturday for a winter vacation, Politics Daily has learned, while President Obama remains in Washington to deal with Congress. In a pre-emptive move -- remembering the stinging criticism of her lavish vacation to Spain last summer -- the East Wing volunteered that Mrs. Obama will be flying to Hawaii in a military version of a business airplane -- not the jumbo jet that flew her to the Mediterranean coast in August. The first family originally had been scheduled to head to Hawaii on...
  • More "free" lunches thanks to Michelle's bloated "security" bill

    More than two-thirds of New York City's public school students will begin getting more nutritious free or low-cost school lunches under First Lady Michelle Obama's pet project to get kids to eat well and exercise. President Obama signed into law Sunday the $4.5 billion Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which expands the free lunch program and requires that schools provide more nutritious lunches. "We've seen the connection between what kids eat and how well they perform in school," he said. Some 680,000 out of 1.1 million New York children participate in the school lunch program - a big chunk of the...

    Detainees’ diets at Guantanamo Bay have been a controversial issue for some time and now the U.S. prison is said to be rationing ice cream. The frozen dessert is allegedly being tightly measured, with only one ice cream allowed for each of its 147 detainees. Journalist for The Miami Herald, Carol Rosenberg, photographed a refrigerator at Guantanamo, with two signs reading ‘DETAINEE FOOD ONLY’ and ‘Only 1 Ice Cream For each detainee!’

    Attention Malia and Sasha: The remote is in Mom's hands this Saturday, and she's sending a message to you and the rest of the nation's kids to "Go out and play." At noon EST on Sept. 25, first lady Michelle Obama will tell Nick viewers to "get ready to shut down your computers, put down your cell phones and turn off your TVs." Nickelodeon, Nicktoons, Nick Jr. and TeenNick will then go off the air for three hours, according to the Associated Press. The cartoon blackout is part of Nickelodeon's annual Worldwide Day of Play campaign, an annual effort to...
  • Why there's chocolate ice cream

    09/14/2010 9:16:08 AM PDT · by In Bold Colors · 23 replies ^ | 09/14/2010 | Roger E. Skoff
    Do you know why there's chocolate ice cream? It's because some people don't like vanilla! Thay might seem obvious, but it's a lesson that the leaders of the Republican Party have apparently never learned. People who don't like vanilla ice cream don't want "Vanilla Bean" or "French Vanilla" or "Vanilla Lite"; if they want ice cream all, what they want is something completely different: maybe chocolate or maybe not, but definitely NOT any kind of vanilla. The same thing applies to politics too: When people are upset with, or distrustful of, or even outright scared of the Democrat party and...
