Natiello If you have the time and the patience, and room in your heart to forgive chef Jamie Oliver for referring to his Crispy and Sticky Chicken Thighs with Squashed New Potatoes and Tomatoes as a “simple pan-baked chicken dish” then I encourage you to try this recipe. But for God’s sake, know up front that it is not “simple.” Okay perhaps, technically, it is “simple” but “simple” implies “quick.” Doesn’t it
By MIA STEINLE Royalties and other revenues that companies pay to extract natural resources from public landsconstitute one of the federal government’s largest sources of income — a whopping $13 billion in 2014. However, considering that the rules governing coal royalties haven’t been overhauled in over 25 years, there’s a very good chance that the government isn’t collecting all of the money that US taxpayers deserve

NEW YORK — New York City may divest hundreds of millions of dollars from Walmart and other big-name stores that sell guns and ammunition less than two years after it yanked investments in the country’s biggest gun manufacturers. Trustees for the New York City Employees Retirement System , or NYCERS, one of the largest U.S. pension funds with more than 300,000 active members, passed a resolution this week to study the impact of selling its shares in major gun retailers, including Walmart, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Cabela’s. “Our nation is bleeding from gun violence, and we cannot and should not bolster the gun retailers whose weapons are used to kill and maim our citizens,” Public Advocate Letitia James, who introduced the resolution, said in a statement. “Our public money must not be invested in companies that fundamentally undermine our public safety,” James continued.
It’s time to share some personal thoughts on a theme I seem to speak to on a weekly basis: women and beer. In light of the recent Bud Light #UpForWhatever campaign, which included the tagline, “The perfect beer for removing ‘no’ from your vocabulary for the night,” the topic has surfaced once again–and the conversation is spilling over into the craft beer world
El clásico del pacifico le dicen, la ultima vez que se vieron las caras estos dos equipos (según yo) fue en un amistoso en julio del 2012, partido donde debutaba “el Neymar ecuatoriano” y donde se dieron hasta con la cubeta después de una entrada durisima sobre Duvier Riascos. Hoy sin duda se va a escuchar las menciones a la multipropiedad, que Caliente es dueño de los dos equipos, jugadores de Xolos a Dorados y viceversa, creame a mi, mi estimado lector, gente como Fernando Arce o Raul Enriquez ídolos en esta frontera, vienen con la clara intención de demostrarle a la Jauria que dejarlos ir fue un errror y que factores como la cancha sintetica a ellos no les afecta, ellos no se moldearon en ella, ellos nacieron en ella. Pronostico una buena tarde de fútbol en el estadio Caliente, no se la pierda y no se despegue del sillón.

Jean Keating has one quite personal hope for her foster dog Colt: that the pit bull pup will poop. “New opportunities and adventures will be open to Colt if he can poop like every other puppy,” Keating says. Colt’s funky bowels have been the focus of Keating’s attention for quite some time now. This past April, when he arrived at her Ohio home, Colt was a tiny dog with a big problem. Seven weeks old, and just 2.68 pounds, the wee pit bull had been spotted for sale online, by a volunteer with Keating’s rescue group, the Lucas County Pit Crew . It was clear from his photos that the puppy was very sick. Colt had some sort of infection in the beginning, possibly from a botched surgery to fix what is now assumed to have been an anal prolapse (that means some of his rectal tissue was poking out of his behind). The vet wasn’t sure he’d make it, given how sick he was.

NEW YORK (AP) — A teenage girl suffocated her just-born baby boy before putting his body in a shopping bag, then going on a trip to a Victoria’s Secret store the next day, prosecutors said as she was charged with murder Thursday. Tiona Rodriguez, now 18, pleaded not guilty, with her lawyer saying it was a stillbirth, not a killing.
On this international day of friendship, I am prompted to think of the #IranDeal that is so fresh on the minds of many in the work of international friend making. This is no pact between friends, but it does present an opportunity for some straight talk between frenemies
I was sitting here about to explain how we got into this telecom mess and why things will get worse unless we stop it, and throw in why you should read my new book. But then I started to reflect on how I ended up in the mess — this personal journey about my love and obsession with, well, telecommunications (though you may call it broadband, Internet, cable, wireless, etc). For me, it started with a gang of my friends from Brooklyn Technical High School, taking the train to the New York City World’s Fair, circa 1965, and running around like maniacs, trying then-AT&T’s fiber optic-based video-conferencing system, where you could go into an egg-shaped ‘phone room’, and like magic, see you other friends in other eggs spread throughout the Fair.

When Ryan Seacrest, the “ busiest man in Hollywood ,” touches something in the entertainment world, it usually turns to gold. But it seems the “American Idol” host, radio personality and producer of such mega-hits like “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and the Emmy Award-winning “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” missed the mark this time. The new Seacrest-hosted reality TV show “ Knock Knock Live ” was pulled by Fox after just two episodes , Variety.com reports.

BEIJING — “When China wakes, she will shake the world.” Napoleon’s famous comment on China has had China-watchers scratching their heads for two centuries as to what exactly he meant.
On the same day a female Los Angeles Police officer was sentenced to 36 months for delivering hard kicks to the groin of a handcuffed woman who later died, a homeless woman with mental illness was facing 25 years to life for merely picking up a police baton. How do we account for this disparity? How do we reconcile local prosecutors giving police officers the benefit of every real or imagined mitigating circumstance while civilians are routinely overcharged with crimes carrying the most severe penalties?

“She seems to have an illness.” “Maybe she’s drunk.” “Maybe she took some pills with drugs or stuff like that.” Those are not the feelings typically expressed by adults when they see a fashion campaign. But get a group of kids together, and the not-so-pleasant truth comes out. Yolanda Domínguez , a Madrid-based artist, showed a group of 8-year-olds a series of fashion ads for both men’s and women’s brands.

Back when coconut water became a thing, marketers positioned it as a hydration powerhouse, claiming its natural sugar and electrolytes will hydrate better than water. While the nutrient composition of coconut water does resemble a lighter, more natural version of a sports drink, it may not deserve all of the hydration hype after all. How Coconut Water Compares Coconut water is simply the naturally occurring liquid from the inside of a coconut.

Ho hum, just another fundamentalist “Jesus Freak” day of joy in the U.S. Air Force, spewing out another major illicit act of despicable denigration towards the Constitution of the United States.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Athletes competing in next year’s Summer Olympics here will be swimming and boating in waters so contaminated with human feces that they risk becoming violently ill and unable to compete in the games, an Associated Press investigation has found. An AP analysis of water quality revealed dangerously high levels of viruses and bacteria from human sewage in Olympic and Paralympic venues — results that alarmed international experts and dismayed competitors training in Rio, some of whom have already fallen ill with fevers, vomiting and diarrhea.

It was 50 years ago Thursday that President Lyndon Johnson signed the legislation that created Medicare, dramatically altering life for America’s seniors. But as debate over the program rages on, its conservative critics have learned to be more crafty about what alternatives they propose — and how to justify them. When Johnson signed the bill, he did so alongside an aging Harry Truman — who, two decades before that, had become the first sitting president to pursue universal health care seriously. Medicare, Johnson promised, would help realize Truman’s dream for the nation’s elderly: “No longer will older Americans be denied the healing miracle of modern medicine,” Johnson said.

When I told a snarky friend I was writing about the new Philip Glass autobiography, Words Without Music , she asked, “Does it go like this: I, I, I, I, I, I, was, was, was, was, was, born, born, born, born …?” Snarky. I get it, of course, which is more than I have been able to say, over the years, about Glass’s music
NEW YORK — Will Dana, the managing editor of Rolling Stone, is leaving the publication in August, four months after the magazine retracted a bogus story about a gang rape at the University of Virginia, a spokeswoman confirmed. Dana, who spent nearly two decades at the magazine, oversaw the newsroom during its biggest journalistic breakdown in nearly a half-century of publishing. Several news outlets and bloggers quickly poked serious holes in Rolling Stone’s “A Rape on Campus,”published in late November. Dana went silent for months before Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, which the magazine commissioned to investigate the story, concluded in April that it was a “journalistic failure that could have been avoided.” The New York Times first reported the news of Dana’s departure Wednesday night, just hours after three members of Phi Kappa Psi, the fraternity at the center of the purported gang rape, sued the magazine and the article’s author, Sabrina Rubin Erdely. They’re not the only ones seeking retribution in respone to the discredited story. Nicole Eramo, a UVA associate dean of students, filed a defamation suit against Rolling Stone in May. Many in journalism circles were shocked that Dana, his deputy editor Sean Woods, and Erdely were not fired or suspended in the wake of Columbia’s findings
By Cecilia Alvear and George Lewis http://www.galapagosdigital.com/2015/07/29/new-cucumber-conflict-in-galapagos/ The potential opening of sea cucumber fishing in Galápagos has scientists and conservationists surprised and concerned after news leaked of a July 10 agreement that would allow the collection of 500,000 of the creatures, considered vital to the marine environment. It reignites a long dispute that has pitted fishermen against the scientific community

WASHINGTON — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reflected on a polarizing term that featured major decisions on marriage equality, health care and housing discrimination on Wednesday evening in a conversation with Duke Law professor Neil Siegel. Though the court’s term, which wrapped up exactly one month ago, has been widely described as a liberal one, she said she wouldn’t characterize the term (or herself) as “liberal.” To Ginsburg, consecutive terms that produce record dissatisfaction with the court have become par for the course, because she and her fellow justices tend to take up cases that have divided those below them.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady took the fight over his “Deflategate” suspension to social media and federal court on Wednesday, and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft backed the three-time Super Bowl MVP, saying “I was wrong to put my faith in the league.” One day after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell rejected Brady’s appeal, the star quarterback posted a 507-word statement on Facebook with his firmest denial yet, writing: “I did nothing wrong.” Kraft followed with an unscheduled address to the media gathered at Gillette Stadium for the opening of training camp and the team’s defense of its fourth Super Bowl championship. “It is completely incomprehensible to me that the league continues to take steps to disparage one of its all-time great players, and a man for whom I have the utmost respect,” the Patriots owner said
More than 40,000 people have signed a White House petition calling for Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer to be extradited to Zimbabwe to face justice for killing a beloved lion named Cecil. Legal experts say it could happen. First, the grisly and disturbing background: Palmer allegedly paid two Zimbabwean men $55,000 for what may have been the illegal killing of the famously black-maned animal. “Ongoing investigations to date suggest that the killing of the lion was illegal since the land owner was not allocated a lion on his hunting quota for 2015.

You’ve got to give it to the great, big dogs. Super-sized pooches have that much more love to give, with extra large licks and seriously strong tail wags that have the power to whack everything in reach (so, really, keep your breakable vases and china protected). Canines of all shapes and sizes are worthy of an affectionate scratch behind the ear and a meaningful belly rub, but there’s just something about the gentle giants that can prompt even the coldest of characters to look on with admiration and glee.
Brazilian restaurants outside of Brazil generally fall into two kinds: those that serve a narrow range of Rio-based dishes that focus on the rich black bean and offal stew called feijoada, and those that feature churrascaria items, usually in a show of waiters carving sizzling meats from a long skewer and accompanied by ample salad bar items. The best of the first type are found in New York’s outer boroughs, the latter in Manhattan at vast churrascarias, where the cachaça flows freely
