  • FLASHBACK: Finally! Monica Lewinsky Is Reportedly Prepared To Detail How She Tossed Bill (tr)

    10/10/2016 7:19:33 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 31 replies
    So Monica Lewinsky is reportedly peddling a memoir about her White House career, promising tawdry details that did not appear in “Monica’s Story,” the 1999 authorized biography authored by Andrew Morton. As reported by the New York Post, the tell-all will describe Bill Clinton’s purported “penchant for kinky sex.” Which means Lewinsky, 39, is prepared to talk about tossing the 42nd president’s salad. While the report prepared by Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr provides a thorough account of Clinton’s sexual encounters with Lewinsky, some salacious details were redacted from the report prior to its release by the House Judiciary Committee. For...

    Following yesterday’s knife attack in Rosh Ha’ayin in which a 30-year-old mother of three was wounded, the Arab Israeli suspect’s mother denies the incident was a terror attack, claiming that the knife her daughter was brandishing was “for making salad." The mother, a resident of the town of Kfar Qassem close to the scene of the attack, told Channel 2 that her daughter wasn’t a terrorist, and decried the media for rushing to judgment. “She’s dieting. She always carries fruit and a knife with her in her bag to make salads,” she said. In the attack, the terrorist had a...

    A multistate outbreak of Listeriosis linked to packaged salad mixes produced by Dole Fresh Vegetables Inc. is being investigated by federal, state and local officials.

The bacteria has been found in salads produced at a Dole facility in Springfield, Ohio. Fifteen people from eight states have been reported infected by the bacteria since July 5.

    As the world population grows, we have a pressing need to eat better and farm better, and those of us trying to figure out how to do those things have pointed at lots of different foods as problematic. Almonds, for their water use. Corn, for the monoculture. Beef, for its greenhouse gases. In each of those cases, there’s some truth in the finger-pointing, but none of them is a clear-cut villain. There’s one food, though, that has almost nothing going for it. It occupies precious crop acreage, requires fossil fuels to be shipped, refrigerated, around the world, and adds nothing...

    For those watching their weight, choosing a restaurant salad over a fast food burger may not be the wisest idea. A restaurant meal that includes an appetizer, salad entrée and one side can contain an average of 1,494 calories, compared to a greasy McDonald’s Big Mac Extra Value Meal that will set you back 1,130 calories, according to the Journal of Nutrition, Education and Behavior. […] A Burger King Whopper with cheese, for example, has 710 calories. Comparatively, an Applebee’s Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad contains 800 calories and an Applebee’s Cheeseburger will set you back 940 calories. Similarly, Chipotle’s Chicken...

    If you're using fat free dressing on your salad, you're doing it all wrong. According to scientists, you need to eat salad with fat-based dressings to get the most out of the veggies. Having no fat in your salad actually diminishes the benefit from eating vegetables. This sounds a little crazy, right? But yes, even though fat free dressing has less calories than its fatty filled counterpart, you're not getting the full oomph you want when eating vegetables with skinny dressings. Researchers at Purdue University compared salad eating with dressing that had saturated fat, monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated fat at...

    Here is the question, in terms of both safety and taste. Can you cook or fry with salad dressing? I know you can marinate with some oil type salad dressings (alot of folks use italian salad dressing to marinate chicken, steaks and pork chops, etc). However, can you actually fry foods using say, creamy salad dressings? Like creamy italian or ranch style dressing? Or, also a weird but strange question, if you are eating something and pour creamy style dressing over it, can you put it into the fridge and reheat (probably via microwave) later on and eat it again,...

This same group of people has lobbied for decades to prove that plants are living creatures. They then eat the plants, which they say are alive, while refusing to eat meat because the animal is alive. Hypocrisy, I know. Furthermore, I remember hearing these people talk about how you are "hurting" or "torturing" trees and plants if you pull off a branch or leaf. They often equate it with pulling off one of your fingers, or limbs. With...
