    Fast food chain McDonald’s has suspended sale of chicken nuggets and some other products in Hong Kong. It said it had imported chicken and pork from Shanghai Husi Food, the Chinese firm that allegedly supplied out-of-date meat to fast food firms. China has suspended operations of Shanghai Husi after local media reports claimed it reprocessed expired meat. McDonald’s had removed nuggets from its menus at its Japanese outlets earlier this week over the same issue. …

    Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried has breached protocol for most professional athletes, taking a stand on an issue still controversial throughout the United States. Appearing in a video posted Friday, Faried introduced the world to his two moms, his birth mother and her partner, and proceeded to make the case for same-sex civil unions. One excerpt: I support civil union because it gives…gays and lesbians the right to make decision on their own if they want to get married and let them choose who they want to be with. Even straight people have drama and stuff, but i really don’t...

    The Douglas County Internet Crimes Against Children Unit (ICAC) investigated the Larkspur, Colorado home of NBA player Chris 'Birdman' Andersen in connection with child pornography on Thursday. The ICAC said they began investigating Andersen, 33, in February of this year, after they were given a tip from a law enforcement agency in California. Pending the completion of the investigation, Andersen has been suspended from all team-related activities by the Denver Nuggets.
  • Junk Food Makeover: Healthier Chicken Nuggets

    Junk Food Makeover: Healthier Chicken Nuggets The Challenge Believe it or not, chicken nuggets were invented by a scientist at Cornell University in the 1960s. Robert C. Baker--who the New York Times called "something of a chicken Edison"--figured out how to process the whole chicken, including some of the less savory parts, into dunk-able, fun shapes (like dinosaurs). Little did this man know that his creation would become the go-to item on every kids' menu across the country.
  • Chicken Nuggets Teacher in North Carolina Breaks Down in Tears and Resigns

    (RAEFORD) – The pre-K teacher involved in the “chicken nuggets” incident in Hoke County changed her version of what happened after undergoing three separate interrogations. Margaret Maynor was brought to tears in the third session. She submitted her resignation soon after. In a highly unusual move, the Hoke County School System released documents from the teacher’s personnel file purportedly showing why the pre-K instructor resigned. Previous articles reported some students with homemade lunches were given trays of school food because their bag lunches didn’t meet federal nutrition standards. One girl didn’t touch her homemade lunch and just ate three school...

    RALEIGH — State lawmakers questioned a N.C. Department of Health and Human Services official at a hearing Tuesday to determine why a Hoke County preschooler’s homemade turkey sandwich was replaced with chicken nuggets. Members of the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Health and Human Services wanted to know if a teacher at West Hoke Elementary School was following state law when she offered a 4-year-old girl a cafeteria tray containing chicken nuggets, a sweet potato, bread, and milk as an alternative to her homemade turkey and cheese sandwich, potato chips, banana, and apple juice. Deborah Cassidy, director of the DHHS...
  • Is Farming Brain-Dead Chickens More Ethical? (Matrix-style Chicken Factories)

    Is farming brain-dead chickens more ethical? Architecture Student André Ford is proposing raising chickens for meat in vertical racks after severing their frontal cortexes, rendering them effectively brain-dead. It would be much, much more efficient, there's no doubt about that, but would it be any more ethical than current factory farms? The images of the conceptual chicken racks are fairly disturbing- the chickens are suspended, completely immobile, with their feet removed. Tubes feed water and nutrients directly into the them while other tubes carry away waste. The chickens themselves, though, aren't suffering at all, since their brains have been surgically...

    Just the Facts: State vs. Federal School Nutrition ProgramsPosted by Courtney Rowe, Press Secretary, USDA, on February 16, 2012 at 1:21 PM In the past 24 hours, we’ve seen a lot of chatter online regarding a story from North Carolina in which a pre-school student’s lunch was deemed “unhealthy.” We’d like to set the record straight. As established by law, USDA promotes healthier lifestyles for our nation’s school children through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. The Department sets science-based nutritional standards for and oversees State administration of schools that choose to participate in these national programs. In exchange...

    State agent inspects sack lunches, forces preschoolers to purchase cafeteria food instead RAEFORD — A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious. The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes in her More at Four classroom that day. The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services...

    A teenage girl who has eaten almost nothing else apart from chicken nuggets for 15 years has been warned by doctors that the junk food is killing her. Stacey Irvine, 17, has been hooked on the treats since her mother bought her some at a McDonald’s restaurant when she was two. In a small portion of fries there are 230 calories, 11g of fat, 29g of carbohydrates, 3g protein and 160mg sodium. If Miss Irvine were to eat three portions of each in a day she would eat a third more fat and almost double the amount of salt than...

    Two important numbers for the Los Angeles Lakers: 27 and 30. Twenty seven was their margin of victory, winning 119 to 92 in Denver. The other number - 30 - is the number of appearances they will have made as a result of winning this game. A possible turning point in the game, during which the home Nuggets rarely led: with 8:55 in the 3rd quarter, the Lakers committed their fifth team foul, allowing the Nuggets to shoot free throws for every subsequent foul. There was only one subsequent Laker team foul in that quarter, and that was five game...

    The NBA has World Wrestling Entertainment in a logistical figure-four leglock. WWE’s Monday Night Raw was scheduled for Monday, May 25, at the Pepsi Center in Denver, but the NBA has scheduled Game 4 of the Lakers-Nuggets series for that date. “Even though the Denver Nuggets had a strong team this year and were projected to make the playoffs, obviously Nuggets and Pepsi Center owner Stan Kroenke did not have enough faith in his own team to hold the May 25th date for a potential playoff game,” said WWE chairman Vince McMahon.

    MARCH 3--Angered that her local McDonald's was out of Chicken McNuggets, a Florida woman called 911 three times to report the fast food "emergency." Latreasa Goodman, 27, last Saturday called police to complain that a cashier--citing a McDonald's all sales are final policy--would not give her a refund. When cops responded to the restaurant, Goodman told them, "This is an emergency. If I would have known they didn't have McNuggets, I wouldn't have given my money, and now she wants to give me a McDouble, but I don't want one." Goodman noted, "I called 911 because I couldn't get a...

    Right or wrong, the code of the street in poor, largely black neighborhoods in the Bay Area is never, ever cooperate with police. To do so, the idea goes, means risking retaliation from criminals. The ethos cuts across generations, even as some who embrace it complain police do little about crime in their neighborhoods. The mind-set is moving from the streets to the mainstream, carried by rappers denouncing rats and T-shirts declaring, "Stop Snitchin." The T-shirts have proven popular in Oakland and elsewhere, prompting a debate within the communities where they're worn and frustrating police who say they're another...
