    IMRAN Khan has suggested Pakistan bans imports of CHEESE in a bid to boost the country’s struggling economy - prompting outrage from the nation's pizza lovers. The bizarre ban, slammed by critics and opposition leaders, is being considered along with embargoes on other foreign products such as luxury cars and phones. Newly-elected Prime Minister Khan believes the move will help the country stave off a $12 billion bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), reports The Times. A water crisis has also prompted the former Pakistani cricket captain to ask for donations from Pakistanis around the world to help build...

    Residue on 7,200 year old pottery found in Croatia has pushed back the dawn of cheese making in the Mediterranean. The find resets the timeline of agriculture in the region, with fermented dairy products being made a mere five centuries after milk was first stored. But its innovation was more than just a culinary milestone for dairy connoisseurs – it could have been a life saver. … Archaeological data shows people have been growing crops and raising livestock in the region for roughly 8,000 years.

    SYDNEY, NSW — A Missouri nun who was caught trying to smuggle cocaine through the heels of her shoes at an Australian airport said her online boyfriend tricked her into doing it. Denise Woodrum, 51, was arrested last year after customs officers at Sydney Airport found two pounds of drugs in the high heels of the shoes she had packed, according to Newsweek. It was Hendrik Cornelius, a man Woodrum met online, who duped her into transporting the drugs, said Rebecca Neil, Woodrum’s attorney. "She went on this trip thinking she was bringing artifacts for him," her attorney said. Woodrum...

  • Stinking Bishop: The story of a masterpiece

    08/12/2018 5:29:25 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 3 replies
    What can be said about Stinking Bishop that hasn’t been said a million times before? We’ve wanted to include a feature on this legendary cheese for a while now but it’s become so famous that most cheese lovers are fully aware of the story: Charles Martell first produced his perry-washed rind cheese in 1972 on Laurel Farm, in Dymock, Gloucestershire by chance: he didn’t set out to make cheese, it came about as a sideline while conserving the rapidly diminishing breed of Gloucestershire cows. When it appeared in the Wallace and Gromit film, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit in which...

  • Why You Won’t Find Ice Cream On Flights From London This Week

    07/02/2018 11:21:04 AM PDT · by Simon Green · 41 replies
    Europe is the midst of a severe CO2 (carbon dioxide) shortage. One result is a shortage of dry ice, which impacts an airlines’ ability to offer ice cream onboard. Now, airlines like United have been forced to suspend ice cream sundae service on flights out of London. Without getting too technical or boring you to death, most CO2 used for food-processing is created in ammonia plants in Europe. These plants are predominantly in the United Kingdom, Norway, the Netherlands and France. The biggest use for CO2 is in fertilizers, with demand peaking during the cooler months. Consequently, many plants shut...

Heron was found guilty on all three of the charges laid under the Customs Act, but only one breach of trust charge. Justice James Ramsay delivered his decision on Friday following a five-day trial in the Superior...

    As New Hampshire’s moose population struggles, the state fish and game department is asking people to submit photos of moose taken in New Hampshire from May 1 to May 15, as part of its spring moose survey. The photos help biologists monitor the health of the herd. One family in Merrimack got an up-close photo of a moose, which wandered into their yard and right up to the window. Resident Nichole DiVietro caught the moose’s surprise visit on video and posted it on YouTube, where it has received more than 10,000 views as of Thursday night. The video shows the...

    In early 2016, Chauncy G. Goodrich and his family started having problems with a young bull moose on their property near Pinedale, Wyoming.They were repeatedly chased by the moose. They tried various non lethal methods to haze the moose away. They worked for a short period, but the bull continued to hang around the area. By July of 2017, the non-lethal methods were exhausted and/or were no longer effective. Chauncy took a 7 mm Magnum with him as a precaution when he attempted to chase the moose off his property and away from his wife and young children.The bull...

    Commentary: In a video posted online, a customer reportedly wants to check if a new battery is authentic -- using his teeth. Cue explosion.Some things might seem obvious. But even these things are worth mentioning occasionally. Please, therefore, allow me to say these words: Don't bite your phone battery. I base this apparently absurd entreaty on a video that's making its way around the web. It appears to show someone in a Chinese electronics store. As the Taiwan News reports, the customer was looking for a replacement battery for his phone last Friday. The news outlet insists that the action...

    Do animals get bigger as the climate they live in gets colder? According to a rule established in 1847, they do – which has had biologists concerned over what climate change might do to animal body size. But now an analysis of the weights and geographical locations of nearly 274,000 individuals from 952 bird and mammal species has challenged the idea. Bergmann’s rule, formulated in 1847 by German anatomist Carl Bergmann, states that an animal’s body size is negatively related to the temperature of its environment: smaller individuals of a species are found in hotter regions of the species’ range,...

    The Sunday after Thanksgiving often coincides with what Catholics know as the First Sunday in Advent. This year things are different because Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday and will double as the Fourth Sunday in Advent. Going back to its religious roots, Advent is a time of waiting for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus Christ, and for most Germans that first Sunday is the official “kick off” to the holiday season. It is common for families to have a beautifully decorated tabletop wreath with four candles in their homes, and one additional candle being lit every Sunday...
