How to Slice Open an Avocado

How to Slice Open an Avocado

How to Slice Open an AvocadoAfter cutting open hundreds, thousandsof avocados, I marvel as my friend Kyracuts off the top. Slices it right off.And I stare at her, at the knife, at the tipof the avocado listing on the cutting board.How easily she scoops out the creamy green flesh.How simply she cuts more rounds around the pit.All these years, I’ve sliced avocados lengthwise.It’s as if I’ve just learned a new word for yes.As if the sun itself just rose right here in the kitchen.It takes so little to open us, to help ussee everything new. Even that prayer I praythe same way. These hands. This common fruit.Original linkOriginal author: Indu Shayari

Hollywood Needs Help With Their Misconceptions on Meat

Hollywood Needs Help With Their Misconceptions on Meat

From Ellen Degeneres to Dr. Mark Hyman and Katie Couric, it seems there’s a lot of misunderstanding surrounding American meat and livestock production in Hollywood. Some of the media’s most influential voices are making it seem like meat is going to be the end of our health and the end of our planet. To them, the best way to save our health and the planet is to embrace an all plant-based diet. Well, it’s way more complex than that.OMG, Meat is going to kill you because it’s pumped full of drugs and hormones — that’ll kill you!According to Hollywood:All livestock are fed large amounts of hormones.All livestock producers give large amounts of antibiotics to their animals.Livestock producers feed large amounts of corn and soy and it’s detrimental livestock health and the environment.Pasture, grass-fed meat is better than grain fed because it doesn’t destroy our environment.When I read the headlines, I can tell that celebrities, doctors and influencers aren’t doing this out of malice, they’re doing out of misunderstanding. That misunderstanding leads to misinformation that dominates general statements they make.What’s more alarming is that many of the statements being made are based on research backed by environment and animal welfare groups that...

I think that this is a great article.

I think that this is a great article.As a scientist I think true regeneration is impossible. It is like the second law of thermodynamics.The second law of thermodynamics states that the total entropy of an isolated system can never decrease over time, and is constant if and only if all processes are reversible. Isolated systems spontaneously evolve towards thermodynamic equilibrium, the state with maximum entropy.More simply stated any real world process or system will have some losses.We can regenerate some biomes but only at the expense of some imported inputs. Outputs removed from the system will cause an increase in the need for more imported inputs. Actually biomes are not isolated systems so they possibly receive free inputs.Free inputs, carbon dioxide from the air, nitrogen from the air and excrement, minerals from the wind (dust and meteorite fallout), water from rain and condensation. Solar radiation.Until now, scientists didn't know how much of this cosmic dust was gathering on Earth (though they know rather a lot…www.popsci.comI take exception with this statement;It does not take much reflection to realise that depleting the earth of precious minerals without being able to recycle them leads to quick degeneration.Two words make this most problematic, recycle and...

This LA Gas Station Doubles as a Cookie Destination

This LA Gas Station Doubles as a Cookie Destination

Q&AThe surprising delights of Zooies CookiesZooies Cookies InstagramA West Los Angeles United Oil gas station is an unlikely a cookie destination, where five full-time bakers make 30 to 40 varieties, including gluten-free, paleo, vegan, and diabetic-friendly options. Zooies Cookies tucks inside the gas station’s convenience store, where customers pay for premium unleaded and can choose among cookies inspired by peanut butter and jelly, birthday cake, or baklava.Zooies been around for a couple of years, since the family moved from San Diego to Los Angeles. And it’s been under the radar until recently.“The first time I came here, I was like, eh, I don’t need to be eating cookies,” said Robert Lockhart, a Los Angeles police officer who is now a regular. Then he heard kids behind him in line begging for cookies “like they’d never had cookies before.” He decided to give it a try. “So I bought two, went to my car, ate ’em, came back and bought a dozen. I brought my sergeant and now he’s hooked, too.”As unlikely as the store is, so is the story of its owner, Arezou Appel, a mother of two adolescents and the wife of Jeff, who owns the gas station. She learned...

Consider a potato, my friends.

Consider a potato, my friends.

Photo by JESHOOTS.COM on UnsplashIn 1997, my husband ,Jeff and I went on a trip to Ireland. Jeff has ancestral roots in Northern Ireland (Londonderry area), and I love Ireland’s rich history, the culture of the people and the weather.To use the lingo, that trip was a real corker. On the third day I had a mini-meltdown of joy because I ran out of words for “green” and “beautiful.” What I did not run out of in Ireland was potatoes.Most people know that by the 19th century, the staple of Irish diet was the potato. This root vegetable was brought to the European continent from Peru, and quickly became inexpensive, abundant food for the masses. But in Ireland, beautiful, poor Ireland, a blight came along in 1845 and attacked the potatoes. They still grew, but the core of these root tubers were rotten and inedible, meaning this staple of the Irish diet was in very short supply. The Great Irish Potato Famine ended around 1852 — and by this point, one third of the population died of starvation and one third emigrated to the United States and other countries. You can still see deep scars on the faces of the Irish...

Social Media and Callout Culture

Social Media and Callout Culture

We’ve all been there, you go to a restaurant you love maybe even a favorite retail store or another social gathering spot and the service is less than great and you just want to let someone know. What do you do? You take it to social media obviously to “call out” the business.A piece of Forbes titled “Social Media’s ‘Callout Culture’ Continues To Improve Customer Service” details how a recent study from WhoIsHostingThis.com shows that in the digital age where social media dominate the world of customer service is being dominated by the internet.One statistic I did find interesting from the piece was, “The study found that 51% of respondents said they’d called out a company, and it isn’t just the young crowd that is being so vocal via social media. In fact, 44% of baby boomers said they’d complained about a company, while men were more likely to voice their concerns.”One take away from a previous course I took (Principles of Public Relations) was that it takes years to build a great reputation and only a moment to destroy it and the article reflects the same. It doesn’t matter how many glowing reviews a restaurant or business may have if...

The Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Is Used To Exploit Its Employees Like Slaves

The Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Is Used To Exploit Its Employees Like Slaves

From Ryan FanAs an avid supporter of the new Popeyes Chicken Sandwich, one of God’s greatest gifts to the Earth, I say this with assurity: Popeyes employees must be paid more, as soon as possible.The multiple times I have gotten the sandwich, I have waited on lines that have stretched the doors, with impatient customers near me as they wanted to get a bite of the viral Popeyes Chicken Sandwich. I understood their frustrations: the sandwich is the best restaurant item I have ever tasted in a very long time.I remember standing through a line in Brooklyn during the first wave of the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich explosion. There was a line leading out of the store, onto the sidewalk, and employees were churning out sandwiches like an assembly line.The fortunate part of the encounter was that I only had to wait in line for 20 minutes: the employees seemed to know what to expect. Few people, if any, ordered anything outside the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich (the spicy version, at that), and the kitchen was frantically mass-producing sandwiches for its line.The second time I went to a Popeyes in New Carrollton, Maryland. It was 12 p.m. on a Saturday. The parking lot...

What If Indianapolis Had A Department Of Soil?

What If Indianapolis Had A Department Of Soil?

Indianapolis is nearing completion of an enormous tunnel network designed to divert storm water away from the city’s sewage, thereby dramatically reducing the amount of human waste that flows into White River after any significant rain fall.Of course, this is a classically Western approach to solving a problem — accept that the condition that created the problem is inevitable and treat the symptoms. Except the problem — storm water runoff — can be reduced through any number of proven methods. All of them are right under our feet but as far as I can tell, the soil we live on is the responsibility of many people and no one all at once.From parks to public health to public works, by my count there are at least eight city agencies and departments whose spheres of influence include soil, its use and how that use has an impact on us and our natural and built environment. Add in a few utility companies, private land owners and a mess of not-for-profits and you get 10,000s of thousands of stakeholders in issues relating to soil health but not a single “owner.”Which is crazy when you think about how we treat essential resources. We’ve determined that...
