Cheap Eats, Cheap Labor: The Hidden Human Costs Of Those Lists

A treasure map to $1 tacos! $4 banh mi! $6 pad Thai! More often than not, the Xs that mark the cheap spots are in the city's immigrant enclaves. Indeed, food media is never so diverse as when it runs these lists, its pages fill with names of restaurateurs and chefs of color. These lists infuriate me. O k dunn. Roland Barthes, from Mythologies “Steak participates in the same sanguinary mythology as wine.

Steak or bifteck is the heart of a cut of meat, mythologically it is meat in the pure state, and whoever eats it assimilates a taurine strength. Feral meat a step towards a more sustainable diet, researcher says. Posted A Melbourne researcher says eating feral animals could be a step towards a more sustainable Australian diet.

Feral meat a step towards a more sustainable diet, researcher says

Dr Catie Gressier, a cultural anthropologist at the University of Melbourne, has studied the attitudes of Victorians and West Australians towards eating native and feral animals. She said with a growing global population it was "not realistic" to think humanity could continue to consume farmed livestock at the current rate. The Long, Slow Trek To Get Americans To Eat Camel Meat - Food and Environment Reporting Network. The first time Somali-American chef Jamal Hashi put camel meat on his menu in Minneapolis, it didn’t go well.

He tried grinding it into a burger and using chunks of it in a spicy stew, but no matter, the texture was bad and the sales were worse. “It was like chewing on a patty of rubber bands,” he said of the burger. At its best, camel meat tastes much like lean beef. But certain cuts can be tough, and if the meat comes from an old camel, it can also taste gamey. Hashi had used a shoulder cut, and neither he nor his customers were happy with the results. Camels may first have been domesticated in the region around Somalia, where they have long been prized for their nutritious milk and meat, and as a mode of transport in the arid environment.

Which is why Hashi wanted to bring the humped-beast’s meat to Minneapolis, home to the largest population of Somalis in America. This time, Hashi served the camel doner-kebab style: a skewer of spiced, ground meat mixed with egg and breadcrumbs. Chinese Stir-Fried Tomatoes and Eggs Recipe - NYT Cooking.

Forced labour in restaurant kitchens is no joke

When Dosman, who ran Veritas Café for the Graduate Students Association at Wilfrid Laurier University, wrote an unbelievably stupid ad post seeking employees, he should have known the trouble headed his way — and it was trouble he deserved. Had a grown-up checked his ad copy, they might have warned him to correct his spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes:

More than 70 percent of the antibiotics consumed in the United States go to livestock farms, one of the main triggers driving a rising crisis of antibiotic resistance in human medicine.

A Terrifying Superbug Just Showed Up on a US Farm for the First Time

On Tuesday, researchers from Ohio State University published an alarming finding in a peer-reviewed journal: On a US hog farm, they found bacteria that can withstand a crucial family of antibiotics. Carbapenems, as they are known, are a "last line of defense" against bacterial pathogens that can resist other antibiotics, the paper notes. Worse still, the gene that allowed the bacteria to resist carbapenems turned up in a plasmid—small chunks of DNA found in bacterial cells. Plasmid-carried genes bounce easily from one bacterial strain to another, meaning that carbapenem resistance is highly mobile—making it more likely to find its way into bacterial pathogens that infect people.

Fake News Or Real? How To Self-Check The News And Get The Facts : All Tech Considered

On Sunday, police said a man with a rifle who claimed to be "self-investigating" a baseless online conspiracy theory entered a Washington, D.C., pizzeria and fired the weapon inside the restaurant. So, yes, fake news is a big problem. These stories have gotten a lot of attention, with headlines claiming Pope Francis endorsed Donald Trump in November's election and sites like American News sharing misleading stories or taking quotes out of context. And when sites like DC Gazette share stories about people who allegedly investigated the Clinton family being found dead, the stories go viral and some people believe them. Stopping the proliferation of fake news isn't just the responsibility of the platforms used to spread it. The idea is that people should have a fundamental sense of media literacy.

Inside a fringe economy: the convoluted camel milk trade

Sam Hostetler didn’t start raising camels so he could milk them. That came later. At first, he just sold or leased them to Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction (“top-notch riders . . . music, dancing, special effects and family friendly comedy”) in Branson, Missouri.
