The rescue fund, the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF), can borrow money on the market with Eurozone government guarantees of up to €440bn (£370.8bn). But because it wants to have a triple A credit rating, the effective amount it can lend to countries in need is only around €250bn. whatsapplast_img read more

Around this time, health food advocates like John Harvey Kellogg started promoting peanut products as a replacement for animal-based foods (butter included). So for a vegetarian option at these luncheons, peanut butter simply replaced regular butter.One of the earliest known recipes that suggested including jelly with peanut butter appeared in a 1901 issue of the Boston Cooking School Magazine.“For variety,” author Julia Davis Chandler wrote, “someday try making little sandwiches, or bread fingers, of three very thin layers of bread and two of filling, one of peanut paste, whatever brand you prefer, and currant or crabapple jelly for the other. The combination is delicious, and so far as I know original.”The sandwich moved from garden parties to lunchboxes in the 1920s, when peanut butter started to be mass produced with hydrogenated vegetable oil and sugar. Marketers of the Skippy brand targeted children as a potential new audience, and thus the association with school lunches was forged.A Skippy peanut butter television ad from 1986.The classic version of the sandwich is made with soft, sliced white bread, creamy or chunky peanut butter, and jelly. Outside of the United States, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich is rare – much of the world views the combination as repulsive.These days, many try to avoid white bread and hydrogenated fats. Nonetheless, the sandwich has a nostalgic appeal for many Americans, and recipes for high-end versions – with freshly ground peanuts, artisanal bread or unusual jams – now circulate on the web.Ken Albala is Professor of History at the University of the Pacific and Director of the Food Studies MA program in San Francisco. He has authored or edited 23 books on food including Eating Right in the Renaissance, Food in Early Modern Europe, Cooking in Europe 1250-1650, The Banquet, Beans (winner 2008 IACP Jane Grigson Award), Pancake, Grow Food, Cook Food, Share Food and Nuts: A Global History.

Reply Reply Please enter your comment! Reply Mama Mia You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Later I said I wasn’t going to buy that brand anymore. I went to a different well known and respected southern grocery store, and bought a different brand of peanut butter, got home, and made a sandwich, and liked to choked to death it was so dry, and it was the total opposite of the other brand that was too runny. What’s with that? Mama Mia November 6, 2017 at 9:47 pm November 6, 2017 at 9:37 pm No, don’t want peanut butter and jelly sandwich, had enough of those during the hurricane…ugh. Please enter your name here Reply I bought one jar of all natural, no other ingredients added peanut butter at a very well known and respected grocery store, that uses the color green in their advertising, and I got it home, opened it, and went to make a sandwich, and I could have stood there, and poured it out, it was so runny. What’s with that? I was ticked. Just not anytime soon, too soon after the hurricanes………… Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Mama Mia Every sandwich tells a story… don’t it?Everyone has a favorite sandwich, often prepared to an exacting degree of specification: Turkey or ham? Grilled or toasted? Mayo or mustard? White or whole wheat?We reached out to five food historians and asked them to tell the story of a sandwich of their choosing. The responses included staples like peanut butter and jelly, as well as regional fare like New England’s chow mein sandwich.Together, they show how the sandwiches we eat (or used to eat) do more than fill us up during our lunch breaks. In their stories are themes of immigration and globalization, of class and gender, and of resourcefulness and creativity.It’s a five-part series entitled “Every sandwich tells a story, don’t it?” Reply November 6, 2017 at 9:31 pm November 6, 2017 at 9:36 pm I always ate a homemade bisquit with peanut butter and a mug of hot cocoa for breakfast whenever I stayed with my grandma in the summers. I never liked eggs. Still don’t care for them, but will once in awhile eat a deviled egg or two. For me to sit down to a fried egg with the yellow running out would puke me out.

The client had split his garden city plot in two and moved the old house to the one. The other had a more embedded position, including a big old oak tree in the middle.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe gross building allowance had to be fully exploited in order to create a large enough home for the growing family. The stipulated distance to the property line of course limited the positioning from the sides, while the desire to preserve the old oak tree blocked the middle.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe curved L-shape stems completely out of the zoning regulations. The actual bend gives the house an interior spatial flow that would have been broken if we’d chosen a sharp corner. The curving of course also makes for an iconic and sculptural exterior – something that the client specifically requested.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanAnother distinctive feature is the facade colour. Vertical boards are painted in different Falun red shades. An irregular transition from ocher (wide boards) to dark red (narrow boards) happens from the bedroom end to the living room end. The inspiration for the colour mixture was taken from the Swedish children’s book ‘Where’s the Tall Uncle’s Hat? ‘.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe house has two floors in its tall end. That’s where you find bedrooms etcetera. In the second lower end, the upper floor terminates with a balcony facing the interior living room with its high ceilings. The roof has a diagonal, pitch; from one end to the other and also backwards. This skews the house’s gables but also makes for the constant changing of room geometry as one moves through the house.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe house’s waistline houses the kitchen and, behind a bookcase, stairs. The kitchen thus is very much open while the stairs up to the more private spaces are more to the side. With its slow climb, the stairs gives a you a feeling of ‘proceeding’ rather than walking between levels.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanAll openings / glazing is carefully placed so that visibility from neighbours is avoided. This also creates a feeling that the house is located in a place far more sparsely populated than the area in reality is. As if it was just the house and the outdoors.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanInstead of a larger number of conventional windows, the remaining placements are generously glazed. For example, the living room is completely glazed toward a conservatory. As an outside extension of the living room.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe entrance floor is made of Carrara marble. The tiles are laid perpendicular to the main facade, even where the room bends (like a fan). An integrated blood-red bookcase and staircase flows into an equally blood-red wood floor upstairs. The bathrooms are tiled (floor, walls and ceiling) with different patterns from Marrakech Design’s collection by Claesson Koivisto Rune.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanWe thought of the house as if it designed itself; that it was neither particularly strange or extreme.

first_img Photo Credit: Chris SwoszowskiStudents at Charles W. Eliot Arts Magnet Academy are gearing up to take the stage at the school’s 4th Annual Springs Arts Showcase, Metamorphosis, to dazzle audiences with their talents in song, dance and visual arts at the middle school that intends create to world’s next generation of leading visual and performance artists.The public is invited to see first the role art plays in the lives of young students and will include a special appearance from L.A. based artist Kent Yoshimura who painted the 3000 sq. ft. mural on campus last month as a way to spark inspiration within students and help serve as a reminder of the beauty art can bring into a community.“It gives the students something real and tangible that we’re working toward. It is their culminating experience. It’s motivating, engaging and authentic,” said Pasadena Unified School District Magnet Coordinator Shannon Mumolo.“There’s also an element of community and really sharing with our neighbors what it is that we’re doing,” added Mumolo.Photo Credit: Chris SwoszowskiThis year’s Metamorphosis event will see a hefty roster of student formed rock bands, dancers, instrumental musicians, and choir performances all under one roof as a part of bi-annual showcase series.“It’s amazing to have a show about what we do and who we are. Our personalities combine together and it makes something beautiful,” said D’Aura Rodgers, 7th grade student performing in rock band.Eliot Arts’ teachers connect traditional subjects with real-world experience using an arts-integrated approach.Rather than teaching core classes in isolation, students learn math, science, social studies, and English through arts-infused demonstrations and performance tasks.“It gives a great sense of accomplishment and establishment. It also allows kids to do things in their own art form way that they’re actually going to use in real life applications,” said Vocal Music Educator Cassandra Franklin.As an innovative Arts Magnet school, Eliot offers an array of music, dance, theater arts, and visual arts courses in state-of-the-art facilities such as the new Mac lab and video-recording studio where students learn from professionals from various artistic industries.“We’ve been able to transform facilities to be able to create these amazing art spaces to help the students hone their skills and explore options. Metamorphosis is simply an extension of that process,” said Mumolo.Professional partners including The Huntington Library, Light Bringer Project, and Lineage Dance, mentor Eliot teachers and students in the classroom through ongoing artist residencies.“Our students have been working and our teacher have been learning from professionals in the field,” said Mumolo.Students also visit a wide variety of art exhibitions and performances on field trips and with their Arts Passport, a new student incentive program to promote participation in community arts.“Some students are more interested in the arts as a career in the long run and they already know that and they are looking for a school close by in the community that can help them develop those skills,” said Mumolo.Teachers like Franklin say integrating art education with regular education is a pairing unlike no other.For example, she says activities like vocal music provides children with confidence early on which helps with communication throughout life.“Some people may not have ever spoken in front of someone before and when they go to job interviews they’re going to have to put themselves out there on display and present themselves in their best light. If you have been a performer, you are obviously used to an aspect of life that others haven’t experienced yet,” said Franklin.“[Art] can help them stand out more and have a a little bit of an edge,” Franklin added.Eighth grader Victoria Atilano who will be performing in the theatre piece “Status Quo” is inspired by her peers.“Going to an arts school gives us an opportunity to be creative and to stay in an imaginative mindset so we can achieve. It’s a more vibrant environment,” said Atilano.As for the showcase, Atilano is a piece of creative puzzle.“It gives you a chance to be a part of something bigger than yourself,” explained Atilano.L.A. based multi-media artist, filmmaker, and entrepreneur Kent Yoshimura will join the fun to honor the new 3000 sq. ft. mural he painted on the campus in March with hopes to inspire anyone and everyone who sees his colorful display to pursue art in one way or another.“If you go an devote yourself into art and dive into a piece and just do that a for a whole year, you’ll see how much you learn about yourself,” said Yoshimura.As an artist, Yoshimura illustrated Master Davey and The Magic Tea House, which was released worldwide at all Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf locations, and his illustration Lion Lake Lyin’ can be seen alongside artists such as Brian Selznick, Mo Willems, and Ezra Jack Keats traveling across children’s museums.Most recently, Yoshimura was featured on NBC for his large-scale public art pieces.In July 2016, Kent painted the largest mural in Shanghai, which spans 1820 sq. ft. over the entirety of three stories.“I think it’s very unfortunate that the current climate doesn’t see art as a valuable skill when in truth art is beyond just aesthetics. I think every person who is an artist and every person who has studied art truly believes that. A true artist is able to conceptualize, they’re able to problem solve, they’re able to gather the stimuli from the environment around them and translate it into an aesthetic format that people can understand,” said Yoshimura.Attendees will be treated to a sneak preview of Eliot’s High School Musical Jr., which opens for two nights in May.Eliot Arts Magnet 4th annual Spring Arts Showcase, Metamorphosis, hits the stage Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on campus at 2184 Lake Ave.This event is free and open to the public.For more information visit https://www.pusd.us/Page/45.

Since the Supreme Court is the Highest Court of Justice, and the final frontier after which no appeal is possible, Suri in his letter has urged that at least a two-judge Division Bench hears such pleas to ensure the satisfaction of litigants. Given that a Judge is also a human being, who is prone to human frailties, it is in the interest of justice that at least two judges look into pleas for bail brought before the Top Court, pleads Suri. “The Supreme Court is the final court and no appeal lies thereafter. The implementation of remedy by way of Curative Petition is also very rarely considered by the court. To keep the faith in the justice delivery system and satisfaction of the interest of the litigants, it is necessary that matter is heard at least by Division Bench. Each judge has his own philosophy based upon his life experiences, background and knowledge. Division Bench helps judges to interact with each other on all aspects of the matter and to decide collectively. At times difference of opinions leads to matter being heard by another bench I larger bench. This itself is an acknowledgement that judge is a human being and prone to human frailties”, states the letter. Suri goes on to rely on the practice followed by the Apex Court to conduct hearings through a Bench comprising of at least two judges. He emphasises that members of the Bar have always urged the Supreme Court to ensure that hearings are not conducted by a Single Judge Bench, and that Chief Justices have always paid heed to such suggestions. “For the last 70 years bar has been persuading Supreme Court not to allow single judge hearing. All the past Chief Justices every time have considered and found weight in this suggestion of the bar. It is requested that the well established practice of hearing being conducted by a division bench may not be departed from in the interest of justice and in the interest of faith that every one reposes in Hon’ble Supreme Court.” The Supreme Court commenced single-judge bench hearings from today, May 13, in certain matters, for the first time in 70 years after the decision was announced on the Court’s website on May 11. “The people of India have immense faith in Hon’ble Supreme Court and treat the same as a last frontier in their quest for fairness, independence and protection of their rights. The compliance with natural justice in letter and spirit is the condition precedent for building up the eco system of justice, fairness and swift action”, appealed Suri. Next Storylast_img read more

But it was not about us. It was about service to the people. Thank you for sharing this special day with me. God bless every one of you.”One by one, Scarbrough’s friends took the podium to thank him for his service and pay tribute to the officer and the man.Reeves said he has known Scarbrough since in was 10 year old and has always known him to be “an honorable man.”“You could not hold up a man any higher than Benny Scarbrough,” he said.District Attorney Tom Anderson characterized Scarbrough as good, honest and godly.Pike County Sheriff Russell Thomas said he has never seen Scarbrough when he looked like he was having a bad day.Others echoed the same sentiments about the retiring Troy Police Department’s public information officer.But, there was another side to Scarbrough that his longtime friend and fellow police officer Lewis Fannin brought to light.Fannin told “tales” of a young Scarbrough who was prone to more than a little mischief but grew up to be a leader among men.“There’s no finer man in the world than Benny Scarbrough,” he said.The large crowd that gathered to congratulate Scarbrough was a testament to that.“Benny loves the Lord, his family and his fellowman,” Everage said. “What more can be said about a man than that?” Scarbrough asked to take the podium to let everyone know how much it has meant to him to serve the people that are his friends and neighbors.“This is a special day for me and my family,” he said. “It has been quite a journey that we’ve had here.

first_imgCrime Stoppers of Houston(HOUSTON) — Police in Houston say they’re desperate to find a man who was wearing a security guard uniform and holstered gun when he shot a 1-year-old in an apparent road rage incident. The boy was struck in the chest and survived, authorities said.The shooting unfolded at about 1 p.m. on May 1 as the little boy was in his dad’s car in Houston, officials with Crime Stoppers of Houston said in a news release Wednesday.The boy’s father accidentally hit the back of the suspect’s car, according to Crime Stoppers. The suspect then got out of his car — described as a blue Buick Lucerne or Regal — and walked toward the victim’s car with his hand on his holstered gun, officials said. The boy’s dad, who is hearing impaired, stayed in the car, while the suspect, who was acting “aggressively,” “began to yell at the deaf father, who could not understand him,” according to Crime Stoppers. The father told the gunman there were children in the car and drove away, officials said.The gunman then fired at the victim’s car multiple times, officials said. One of the bullets went through the trunk of the father’s car, hitting the 1-year-old in the chest, said police. Crime Stoppers said it may pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the suspect’s arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call 713-222-TIPS.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgObtained by ABC NewsBy ALEX STONE, IVAN PEREIRA and MATTHEW FUHRMAN, ABC News(LOS ANGELES) — The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says it is investigating an incident last week in which deputies were recorded on video pointing their guns, including at least one rifle, at a pair of unarmed Black teenagers who witnesses said had been the victims of a crime.In video of the incident, which occurred Friday around 5 p.m. in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Los Angeles, deputies are seen brandishing their weapons at the two teens while onlookers plead with the deputies to stop. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told ABC News a caller reported two Black men in their 20s were fighting and hitting a man with a skateboard, and the call was dispatched as an “an assault with a deadly weapon.”But in a video of the incident posted to Instagram, witnesses told the officers that the two teens were actually victims of a crime and had only been defending themselves after they were attacked.The video was posted by Tammi Collins, the mother of one of the teens, who did not take the video herself. Collins wrote in her post that her son and another teen were confronted by someone who was allegedly homeless.“The guy became so aggressive that he took his shirt off pulled out a knife and whip them tried to stabbed [sicthem,” Collins wrote. “His friends only had their skate boards to cover them from the knife and whip so they held it out to keep distance from this guy.”When deputies arrived, they tried to secure the scene by detaining possible suspects who matched the caller’s description, the sheriff’s department said. The teens were held at gunpoint and released after the deputies determined what had unfolded.In the 11-minute video, the deputies are seen with their handguns drawn and at least one officer points a rifle at the teens while their hands are in the air. One deputy asks the person filming to get out of the way. Bystanders are heard shouting at the deputies to put their guns down and diffuse the situation.“It was the other guy,” someone is heard shouting. “They didn’t do nothing at all.”Although deputies briefly detained the two teens, there were no arrests, according to the sheriff’s office.In a video message posted on Twitter Tuesday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said he saw the video, which went viral on social media, and that the incident is under investigation.“I have concerns about the tactics deployed,” Villanueva said in his video.Late Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Department announced on social media that they would also be reviewing their policies governing the use of the AR-15 rifle, one of which was utilized in the incident.Santa Clarita Mayor Cameron Smyth said in a statement he was also concerned about the incident and ordered that the investigation be expedited.“In addition, we have asked that the deputy be removed from the field pending the outcome of the investigation,” he said in a statement.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Paul Zukunft recognized Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew Baasch, a gunner’s mate aboard the Cutter Bertholf, for his actions during two counter narcotics operations off Colombia June 28 and July 20. Baasch’s direct involvement resulted in the seizure of more than 7,450 pounds of cocaine with an import value of more than $113 million and the apprehension of six suspected smugglers.During the first drug bust, Cutter Bertholf came across the Costa Rican-flagged fishing vessel Goliat I in international waters June 28. Costa Rica gave the Coast Guard crew permission to board the vessel. Boarding parties from the Cutter Bertholf including a team led by Baasch conducted a search of the vessel that lasted several days. The team located more than 5,900 pounds of cocaine hidden in the vessel’s fuel tank and detained four suspected smugglers.Baasch and the crew of Bertholf intercepted the fishing vessel Jandry in international waters about 90-miles northwest of Colombia during the second bust July 20. The vessel’s flag-state could not be determined so the Coast Guard boarded it to investigate. Narcotics testing kits picked up traces of cocaine on the vessel, and a team from Bertholf led by Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew Baasch began an extensive search of the boat’s compartments. Baasch and his team found more than 1,550 pounds of cocaine hidden throughout the vessel.Bertholf returned home from a 140-day counter narcotics deployment off the coast of Central and South America Aug. 11.
