  • Chobani yogurt company sues radio host Alex Jones

    Greek yogurt giant Chobani is suing far-right radio host Alex Jones, accusing the conspiracy theorist of publishing false information about the company. Chobani alleges that Jones and his InfoWars website posted fabricated stories earlier this month that linked Chobani owner Hamdi Ulukaya and the company to a sexual assault case involving refugee children. The complaint says InfoWars released a video on April 11 falsely claiming that Chobani was “importing migrant rapists,” with the goal of causing customers to boycott its products.

    Refugee Resettlement Watch ^ | November 12, 2016 | Ann Corcoran
    the NY Times has gone to bat for Hamdi Ulukaya who is changing Twin Falls, Idaho with a refugee worker flow for his world’s largest yogurt plant there. As I said yesterday, some of the big players in the UN/US refugee program are giant corporations, some of them foreign-owned, that want CHEAP labor. Think about it! If companies like Chobani didn’t have the steady supply of immigrant/refugee labor they might have to hire American workers and pay them better wages ... Why would a non-profit group, that is being paid millions of tax dollars each year to help legal refugees...

This comes at a time when Twin Falls is embroiled in a firestorm of controversy involving a sexual assault of a 5-year-old special-needs girl by refugee boys from Sudan and Iraq.

    TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) We’re following up on a story we brought you earlier this month regarding an alleged rape that occurred near the Fawnbrook apartments. An eyewitness tells us that at 12:30 p.m today, two police cars arrived at the apartment complex. Prosecutor Grant Loebs will not release any information when asked if warrants were issued today. At this time we know that the case has officially been sealed by a judge with no chance of it ever being unsealed since all parties involved are minors. This means none will be charged as adults. A few weeks ago there...

    Ever wonder why the federal government would be sending hundreds of foreign refugees to a relatively small town in Idaho? Wonder no more. They’re sent there, many of them, to work in the world’s largest yogurt factory. As WND previously reported, Twin Falls is in line to receive about 300 refugees this year, many of them Muslims from Syria. And the state of Idaho, despite its reputation as a mostly white, conservative farm state, has been a popular destination for refugees in recent years. Boise Mayor David Bieter has gone on record as a huge supporter of President Obama’s welcoming...

    The rich array of microbiota in our intestines can tell us more than you might think.Eighteen vials were rocking back and forth on a squeaky mechanical device the shape of a butcher scale, and Mark Lyte was beside himself with excitement. ‘‘We actually got some fresh yesterday — freshly frozen,’’ Lyte said to a lab technician. Each vial contained a tiny nugget of monkey feces that were collected at the Harlow primate lab near Madison, Wis., the day before and shipped to Lyte’s lab on the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center campus in Abilene, Tex. Lyte’s interest was not...

    Add another to the list of gay-friendly advertisers — Chobani. The Greek yogurt company has released a romantic, undeniably hot commercial featuring a same-sex couple. Like Wells Fargo’s recent commercial, a lesbian couple is featured, but Chobani has added a lot more sizzle. A beautiful woman sits in bed and licks the yogurt from her spoon. She tickles the foot of her partner, whose back is to the camera, and then hops out of the bed, with only a sheet, loosely draped around her nude body. The beckoning blue sea is just outside the window. Then comes the reveal. The...

    Yes, greek yogurt is delicious, nutritious, and surprisingly cost-effective. But, we admit we’d never really thought about this consequence of making it our go-to breakfast snack. It turns out that one of the byproducts of greek yogurt production is a little thing called acid whey. It’s a runny substance that is remarkably bad for the environment: If acid whey is dumped, its decomposition can deplete ecosystems of oxygen, killing fishy inhabitants. But, with the continuously growing popularity of that delicious yogurt — it now accounts for $2 billion of the $6 billion yogurt market — finding an ecologically responsible way...

    In much the same way most American homes have different half-filled tubes of sunblock, off-sized batteries, and calculators that can't be thrown away, most American homes have the six following foods. We may not eat them often, or even like them, but we still keep them on hand. They're just part of what make a home a home — even if we forget why. Here, the largely forgotten histories of six American staples. 1.

    ALBANY, N.Y.,- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed a bill designating yogurt as the state's official snack five months after a contentious debate in the legislature. Cuomo signed the bill Wednesday, five months after the state's legislature debated the suggestion from a fourth-grade class at Byron-Bergen Elementary School in Genesee County. "This designation is a fitting recognition of the importance of this state's yogurt industry, which has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years, making New York the top yogurt producer in the nation," Cuomo said in a statement. "We will continue to work with New York producers...

    How about a side of silver with your yogurt? According to an ongoing inventory by the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies (PEN), 96 food items containing nano-sized particles of titanium dioxide—including many found in the dairy aisle—have hit the market. And that number is up from just eight foods in 2008. […] So what’s the big deal? In short, too many unanswered questions. In 2012, the FDA released a draft revealing its many safety concerns about nanoparticles in food. Specifically, they worry that nanoparticles alter the bioavailability, or how much your body can absorb of a substance, and may cause unforeseen...

    According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) – a nonprofit food watchdog group – Dannon uses an ingredient known as carmine to give some of its fruit-flavored yogurt a pink color. Around 40,000 cochineal bugs are needed to produce just one pound of cochineal extract for the carminic acid, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization. In order to obtain the substance, the insects’ bodies are dried and then boiled in water. The CSPI argued that Dannon's use of carmine is cheating consumers, who believe that fruits are providing their yogurt’s color. They also maintain that...

There his condition rapidly deteriorated — his hair fell out, he developed excruciating skin and joint pain, and paralysis and respiratory failure began to set in. Fifteen days later he was dead — but not before he had begun to wonder whether something had been added to his vodka. He was right: the...

    Environmental groups are pushing back against Governor Andrew Cuomo’s administration’s plan to support a growing yogurt industry by easing regulations on large-scale dairy operations. The Greek yogurt industry is growing so fast in New York that the state doesn’t have enough cows to meet the demand for milk. At a “yogurt summit” in August, Governor Cuomo called Greek yogurt one of the best entrepreneurial opportunities in a generation. Farms with up to 200 cows are exempt from rules requiring extra steps to prevent pollution from cow waste. Cuomo proposes raising the limit to 300 cows to help farms expand without...

    Last sum­mer a team of researchers from the Massa­chusetts Institute of Technology set out to better understand the effects of yogurt on obesity. They were following up on the results of a long-term study from the Harvard School of Public Health that had suggested yogurt, more than any other food, helped to prevent age-related weight gain. The M.I.T. team, led by cancer biologist Susan Erdman and evolutionary geneticist Eric Alm, wanted to replicate the work in mice. The researchers took a group of 40 males and 40 females and either fed the animals a high-fat, low-fiber, low-nutrient diet meant to...
