    A radical new guide to the ever-widening world of cheese takes an accessible approach: Begin with what you love Up to now, cheese guides have tended to focus more on where and how cheese is made than on how best to enjoy it. Meanwhile, according to the USDA, Americans annual consumption of natural (as opposed to processed) cheese increased from 19.3 to 29.47 pounds per capita between 1995 and 2015, and the range of cheeses to choose from has become downright daunting. The time has come for The Book of Cheese: The Essential Guide To Discovering Cheeses Youll Love, published...

    An absolute giant of moose goes down in Alaska. Israel Payton may have his hands on the new world record moose. World record animals being harvested always gain a lot of attention. Of course, a moose is not going to catch the attention that a world record whitetail would, but a record is sure to turn some heads. And the news of a new world record moose being broke is doing just that. Israel Payton, an Alaskan, may have just harvested the world record moose with a successful hunt on this whopping bull. It is said the bull is coming...

    The buttery cheese, named after the word doormat for a very specific reason, dates to the 17th century. Naomi Tomky August 15, 2017 When my Quebec City tour guide mentions that the island were heading to has the oldest cheese in North America, Im briefly concerned. A grotesque vision of a 150-year-old pickle my friend Harriet once told me about flashes before my eyes. But, what I learn upon arriving at the le d'Orlans, 15 minutes from the capital, is that Paillasson is simply the oldest style of cheese in North Americaits made fresh on the island, tastes extremely good...

    DETROIT (WWJ) Would you like to lose weight, have more energy, better health? Then stop eating cheese. Thats according to Dr. Neal Barnard, whos down on dairy. Barnard says while Americans seem to have a love affair with cheese, its more of an unhealthy addiction. He makes his case in his book The Cheese Trap. I think its addicting; and I dont use the addicting word lightly, he told WWJs Dr. Deanna Lites. There are actually opiate chemicals in it that attach to the very same brain receptors as other opiates, and Im going to argue that its probably...

    Stockholm (AFP) - Experts on Tuesday urged sightseers flocking to catch a glimpse of a rare white elk in Sweden to take care, warning that the animal could be dangerous. Video footage of the animal posted online has gone viral in recent days, prompting people to head for the central Varmland region where it was spotted. "Elks can get irritated,...and then they're dangerous," said Goran Ericsson, a professor of animal ecology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. "I would advise people to keep their distance," he told AFP. A typical elk weighed between 400 and 600 kilos (880 to...

    A Swedish man who spotted a rare white moose returned the next day and managed to capture video of the creature taking a dip in a local lake. Hans Nilsson said he has been trying to catch a glimpse of the rumored white moose -- sometimes known as an elk in Sweden -- in the Eda region for several years, but he never actually found one until last week. Nilsson posted a video to Facebook showing his second encounter with the alabaster moose, one day after his original sighting. "This white elk bull is local to the area. I saw...

    The Local (Sweden) ^ | 30 June 2017
    Things you don't expect to happen on the golf course. Christer Sjgren had an unusual experience on Karlstad golf course when instead of an eagle or a birdie, he ran into an elk calf. When the young elk started chasing him, he ran, all while his friends laughed at him. His friend Tony Swahn, who shot the video, told The Local it had gone viral in Sweden. "It has really spread," he said. Sweden has seen violent elk attacks in the past, however in this case everything worked out well in the end, after the young animal slowly walked off...

    I am so tired of listening to liberals and weak Republicans arguing about a wall along our southern border that I want to scream. However, at this late date, Im beginning to see their point. It IS expensive. It CAN be breached with a tall enough ladder. It CAN have holes cut in it. I finally have a cheap, foolproof, workable solution. Why dont we just allocate a mile wide strip as No Mans Land and plant land mines in it. That would be simple, cheap, fast, and very effective. Plus, we would be notified every time one of...
  • Nova Scotia is racing to protect its fragile Moose Sex Corridor'

    A narrow strip of land connecting Nova Scotia to New Brunswick is a lifeline for maritime moose in the mood to mate—and it’s under threat The Chignecto Isthmus—the corridor connecting New Brunswick to Nova Scotia that at its narrowest is just 24 km wide—poses a uniquely Canadian problem. On one side of the land bridge thrives a healthy population of more than 25,000 moose; on the other, numbers have dwindled to as few as 500. Long classified as endangered, the Nova Scotia moose is perilously close to extinction. All moose face poaching, parasites, climate change and habitat loss. But unlike...
  • Woman Tries to Revive Pigeon With CPR in Scotland

    A student in Scotland captured video of a unique event on a Glasgow street: a woman attempting to revive a pigeon with CPR. Twitter user @charlismyname, aka Charlotte, posted a video to the microblogging site Tuesday showing a woman on a Glasgow street performing rescue breaths and chest compressions on a collapsed pigeon. The woman pauses as if waiting to see if the bird will begin to breathe on its own, but instead its head simply flops to the side. "Meanwhile in Glasgow... #pigeonCPR" Charlotte wrote. She said the story, sadly, did not have a happy ending. "Omg just seen...

    Before you launch a rocket, you need to count the moose. Maritime Launch Services, the company that hopes to build a spaceport on a parcel of Nova Scotia land that juts into the ocean near Canso in Guysborough County, must first complete an environmental review including counting seasonal numbers of local flora and fauna before the province agrees to the project. Weve hired a contractor to help us do the study, MLS president Steve Matier said Monday. We could conceivably complete that effort at the end of this year. Its part of the process, and its understood. We...

  • Moose-killing ticks thrive in shorter winters due to climate change

    AccuWeather.com ^ | March 3, 2017 | By Stephanie Koons
    Moose calves across northern New England are dying at alarming rates, and scientists believe that deadly parasites benefiting from shorter winters are the primary culprits. Winter ticks have taken a toll on moose across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, killing about 70 percent of moose calves. Winter ticks attach themselves to a single moose by the tens of thousands. Its just off the charts; this should not happen with such frequency, said Pete Pekins, chairman of the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment at the University of New Hampshire (UNH). This is about a calf carrying 75,000 ticks that...
