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.

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 Iowa High School Athletic Association’s Board of Control recently approved five recommendations from the wrestling advisory committee. Schools will be allowed to opt out of dual team postseason events by the first competition date. In Classes 1A and 2A, the 16 sectional champions as well as the next eight highest-ranked teams by the Iowa Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association will qualify for regional dual tournaments. If a sectional champion opted out of the dual team post-season, the next highest ranked team would qualify. Other recommendations approved include seeding all 16 wrestlers in each bracket of the state traditional tournament, reducing the state traditional tournament seeding criteria regarding common opponents from two points back to one point, and to allow host tournament directors to determine the length of sub-varsity matches at local regular season events. The wrestling advisory committee previously met in February to discuss the state dual tournament and wrestling post-season dates, but no changes were recommended by the advisory committee at that time.

first_imgScientists are finding that it’s not just having the right parts that makes a body go; it’s having those parts controlled by the right regulators.  Recent stories make the case with their headlines: “‘Guardian of the Genome’: Protein Helps Prevent Damaged DNA in Yeast,” announced Science Daily.  “Scientists find gas pedal – and brake – for uncontrolled cell growth,” reported PhysOrg.  Another PhysOrg article about stem cells gave “New insights into how stem cells determine what tissue to become.”  Still another on PhysOrg said that “Researchers find key step in body’s ability to make red blood cells.”  Finally, also on PhysOrg, another use was found for large pieces of RNA transcribed from the big stretches of code between genes.  In “‘Linc-ing’ a noncoding RNA to a central cellular pathway,” the opening paragraph announced, “The recent discovery of more than a thousand genes known as large intergenic non-coding RNAs (or ‘lincRNAs’) opened up a new approach to understanding the function and organization of the genome.  That surprising breakthrough is now made even more compelling with the finding that dozens of these lincRNAs are induced by p53 (the most commonly mutated gene in cancer), suggesting that this class of genes plays a critical role in cell development and regulation.”  All that was announced in just 3 days of science news, suggesting this is a hot area of research.  Without precise regulation of the parts of a cell and its genes, bad things happen.This brief entry today is a teaser to go and read the articles, look for mentions of evolution or design, and think about which point of view found these discoveries surprising or not.  Of course, don’t expect to see the words “intelligent design” anywhere, since that phrase is effectively banned from secular science journalism.  Look instead for indirect inferences that design is the best explanation.  Or, look for the lack of attempts to explain the regulation by evolution.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_imgHow IoT Will Play an Important Role in Traffic … Surveillance at the Heart of Smart Cities Related Posts Silicon Valley has been the epicenter of all major tech advancement in the past decade, but when it comes to self-driving, Detroit could snatch that the title away.A new report from Navigant Research shows two of the ‘Big Three’ Detroit auto companies, Ford and General Motors, ahead of auto and tech rivals based in Silicon Valley and Germany.The researchers used 10 different criteria, including strategy, manufacturing, distribution, staying power, and execution, to mark 18 companies currently working on self-driving tech.Ford and General Motors were named ‘leaders’ in the report, alongside Renault-Nissan and Daimler. BMW, VW, Tesla, Waymo, and Volvo were all placed in the ‘contenders’ category, as seen in the graphic above.In the rundown of the rankings, Waymo, the first Silicon Valley company, is ranked seventh. Baidu, nuTonomy, and Uber, three other tech firms, are ranked in the ‘challengers’ category, clearly showing that being an automaker or having a partnership gives a major advantage.It should be noted that Navigant Research takes the entire deployment into account, so the rankings do not reveal the sophistication of each company’s self-driving tech.General Motors and Ford have both made billion-dollar investments to bolster each company’s self-driving talent. GM bought Cruise Automation for $660 million and has invested $500 million into Lyft, a ride-sharing service. Ford spent $1 billion to acquire Argo AI, a young tech startup with high-profile founders.The two American automakers also have the advantage of experience and scalability, two things that Tesla was ranked down on.See Also: Industry split on when first commercial self-driving vehicle will be readyRenault-Nissan, ranked third, have made a few announcements in the past six months to excite investors. It has not made any major investments into self-driving startups however, instead working internally to build its systems.The news might prompt further investment from Michigan into self-driving tech. The state has already created an organization to build a 331-acre fake town for automakers to test driverless vehicles.

first_imgRobins: Man Utd board must give Solskjaer timeby Paul Vegas13 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United FA Cup winner Mark Robins says the board must be patient with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.Robins, now manager of League One outfit Coventry City, believes that Solskjaer must be given plenty of time to implement his philosophy on the playing squad.”What he’s trying to do is reinstall the values that he felt as a player and that were there under Sir Alex,” he told Sky Sports.”He needs time to do that. If you remember when Sir Alex took over, it was six years before that started to take an effect.”I don’t think you get that times these days but I think the board will be patient. As long as they can see things moving forward in the right way they will be patient.”Clearly you need to get results alongside that. Ole knows that but the noises coming out of there and what is being said, they seem happy, the players seem happy, it seems a happier camp.”Things can turn quickly but you need results to maintain it. I hope he gets that time and he gets the backing in the transfer market because it’s going to take a long time to get them back to where they were.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgThe Ministry of Labour and Social Security’s programme of assistance for persons with disabilities has been boosted by a $250 million grant from the Japan Social Intervention Fund. The provision, which is being channeled through the World Bank, is in addition to a $56 million grant, which was recently secured through the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). Portfolio Minister, Hon. Derrick Kellier, who made the disclosure during his contribution to the 2013/14 Sectoral Debate in Parliament on Tuesday, June 4, said the funds are being used for “institutional strengthening” of agencies dealing with persons with disabilities. [RELATED: Committee to Examine Feasibility of Unemployment Insurance] Additionally, he said, the provisions will be used to develop the skills of persons with disabilities in order to enable them to secure jobs, as well as to provide grants for entrepreneurial activities. One of the areas slated to benefit significantly, Mr. Kellier informed, is the Ministry’s Early Stimulation Programme (ESP). He disclosed that the programme, which caters to approximately 1,500 children with various types of developmental disabilities, has recorded a significant increase in the number of youngsters registered, over the past five years. He pointed out that the programme has a waiting list of over 200 children. “The Ministry is aware of the importance of early detection, intervention, and stimulation of children, and moreso children with special needs. In this regard, I am pleased to announce that the grant funding, will include components for strengthening the delivery of service to young children with special needs, training of workers catering to the developmental needs of children, and providing technical assistance to the ESP,” he outlined.Mr. Kellier assured that the Ministry will continue efforts to expand the programme’s offering beyond Kingston and Portland, to other sections of the island where children with special needs have been identified.[RELATED: Consultations on National Minimum Wage]He said that the undertaking will require collaboration with other “like-minded” private and public sector entities.“We are currently in discussions with a new private sector partner that has expressed an interest in working with us in expanding the reach of the ESP. We welcome their willingness to participate in this area and hope that we will soon officially welcome them, as partners, in what should be a long and fruitful collaboration,” the Minister said.Mr. Kellier also expressed gratitude to Jamaica’s development partners, such as the IDB, World Bank, and Japan Social Intervention Fund, for the on-going support provided, which has facilitated improvements to the quality of life for persons with disabilities.“I must also…thank those long serving non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that continue to partner with us to provide services for or advocate on behalf of persons with disabilities,” he added.Contact: Douglas McIntoshlast_img read more
