Yotam Ottolenghi’s recipes for using up leftover bread | Food

Don’t chuck out that stale bread. Instead, repurpose it into a hearty main course or sumptuous pudding Home bakers rarely throw away bread. This makes total sense: so much effort goes into making a loaf that it’s madness to chuck out anything that doesn’t make it to the table or lunchbox before going stale. The same should apply to any bread, really: there are plenty of ways to use up leftovers, from breadcrumbs and salads to puddings and today’s “lasagne”, in which the starch in the bread soaks up the stock to create the creamy consistency of traditional lasagne. And it’s not the only trick: here are three to try. This is more savoury bread pudding, but the bread and cheese come together so seamlessly that it feels a lot like a lasagne in the mouth. It’s inspired by an old Sardinian dish designed to use up stale bread, but you can also use well-toasted fresh bread. I love the intense, smoky flavour of scotch bonnet, but use another type of chilli if need be, or leave it out altogether if you don’t like heat. This is a rich dish, so needs only a green salad alongside. 3 tbsp olive oil3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed2 onions, peeled and finely chopped Salt and black pepper 80...

Pit bull killed after attacking volunteer at Blue Chip Farm

EDITOR’S NOTE: This story has been corrected to correct the breed of dog involved and the nature of the volunteers injury. FRANKLIN TWP. — A local animal shelter has come under fire after a pit bull was shot and killed after the shelter said the dog attacked one of its senior volunteers. Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge in Franklin Township posted a statement to Facebook on Sunday afternoon stating that “an incident occurred on our property involving one of our animals, a senior volunteer, and visitors.” According to the release, the dog, a boxer mix named Chico, attacked one of the volunteers and attacked her to the point where she needed to be hospitalized. Two visitors were able to help the volunteer escape the fenced area. After 45 minutes, the dog was unable to be contained and secured by staff, and the shelter said that “it became a life and death situation for our volunteers and the public visiting the shelter.” The incident was scrutinized by many people who were there at the shelter, and one volunteer, Jeff Solimini, of Ashley, took to Facebook to dispute the Blue Chip statement’s claims that the dog was uncontrollable. In his post from Sunday, Solimini claims that the dog...

Molds, coffee pods, other plastic products on new US tariff exemption list logo-pn-color logo-pn-color

Washington — A few dozen plastics items are on three lists of products exempted from the U.S. government’s 2018 tariffs on Chinese imports, including various grades of industrial products like vinyl sheet and polyethylene film, along with consumer products like plastic straws. The U.S. Trade Representative published the three lists Sept. 20, and they include more than 400 products exempted from three rounds of tariffs against China, totaling $250 billion, that were imposed in July, August and September 2018. They were the first phase of U.S. tariffs in the trade conflict with China. As previously announced by the Trump administration in late 2018, injection molds are exempted. The Sept. 20 lists include injection molds, mold inserts, mold bases and mold base parts from China, along with specialized equipment like some types of vertical or single-shaft shredders for recycling. At times the exempted products go into granular detail. The exemptions from the July 2018 list include very specific descriptions of PVC sheet of certain widths, for example, and polyacetal brackets, filters or hose fittings, as well as industrial-sized plates of ethylene-vinyl acetate and PE foam.

Solar-energy paradigm for generating singular nanomaterials

The solar paradigm of creating singular nanomaterials that possess unprecedented photonic, tribological, electronic, and catalytic properties is arguably far less familiar than the energy-saving paradigms of solar photovoltaics and solar thermal systems. Much of the research in this field has evolved over the past decade from our collaborations (i.e., between researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel). Although the first fullerenes (hollow closed-cage nanostructures) and nanotubes were made from pure carbon, in the 1990s it was realized that a rich landscape of inorganic candidates—made from compounds that possess comparably layered crystal structures (see Figure 1)—should also exist.1 These compounds have strong covalent bonds within the plane, and weak interplane van der Waals forces that become relatively insignificant at high temperature (where thermal fluctuations can shear, bend, and fold molecular sheets into fullerene-like and tubular nanostructures).1 The first non-carbon success stories were tungsten disulfide (WS2) and molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), produced via pulsed-laser ablation and high-temperature chemistry in...

Amazon, together with singer Lady Gaga, launched a beauty line Haus Laboratories. The first major beauty

Amazon, together with singer Lady Gaga, launched a beauty line Haus Laboratories. The first major beauty brand sold exclusively on Amazon. Pushed by the Amazon marketing efforts on Prime Day, the brand became the number one best-seller in the Makeup category by the end of the event. Prime Day was only pre-sale; products started to ship on September 17th. On that day the brand added additional items, which too by the end of the day became best-sellers. Nine out of the top 100 best selling products in Makeup were by Haus Laboratories, and the eyeliner was the number one best-seller. Makeup is a category inside of Beauty & Personal Care department. The top Haus Laboratories products on July 15th, Prime Day, as well as September 17th, the day preorders shipped, were not only best-sellers in Makeup, but were in the top 10 of the whole Beauty department. A department which otherwise includes tens of millions of products. The eyeliner became a best-seller because Amazon featured it prominently on the homepage as well as the app. On Prime Day, Haus Laboratories had a 30-minute long video segment repeated a few times during the real-time video stream, was part of Prime Day Launches s...

Best flask 2019: The best vacuum flasks to keep drinks and food hot all day

A Thermos isn’t just for Christmas. Our top seven vacuum flasks keep their contents freezing cold in summer as well as piping in winter We’ll stop using “Thermos” as a generic term now. After all, Thermos is just one of many brands to master the art and science of the vacuum flask, that ingenious insulated container that does the job of a portable kettle, oven or fridge without the need of a plug socket. Whether it’s a chunky “food flask”, sleek “vacuum bottle” or something in between, the job of a flask is to keep food and drink hot or cold without leaking, all day long. Some of the winners on our list can insulate for more than 24 hours, which is long enough to survive the toughest hike or most gruelling commute. For this review we’ve picked out seven flasks that excel at insulation, leak-proof seals, durability (no shattering in a single drop, thank you) and, of course, value for money. Before we reveal our list, here’s a quick shopping guide. Flasks have come a long way since your great-grandmother sent her man off to work with a Thermos of oxtail soup. Today’s best vacuum flasks are mini engineering marvels,...

More kratom recalled; health officials and enthusiasts still disagree on dangers

Zakah Life of Ankeny, IA, is the latest company to join those recalling kratom products after they tested positive for Salmonella, according to a company notice posted by the FDA. “The potential for contamination was noted after laboratory testing revealed the presence of Salmonella in some packages of Super Green Maeng Da Kratom powder, Red Powder Vein Bali Kratom powder, Super Green Maeng Da Premium Kratom capsules, and Powerful Red Vein Bali Premium Kratom capsules.” At least 199 people from 41 states have been infected in an ongoing Salmonella outbreak traced to kratom products, with 38 percent of the ill people having been hospitalized, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. On July 3 the Food and Drug Administration released a statement about its investigation into kratom products in general. An advocacy group, the American Kratom Association, has been increasingly critical of the FDA’s position on kratom. The group issued a news release Aug. 16 requesting a meeting with FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb. Several companies have already recalled dozens of kratom products between them because they tested positive for Salmonella. Kratom is a plant consume...
