Opinion: Republicans trying to impeach Biden don’t notice the egg on their faces

Opinion: Republicans trying to impeach Biden don’t notice the egg on their faces

Now we know what a real Russia hoax looks like: very much like House Republicans’ stumbling effort to impeach President Biden. The current GOP misadventure — which was always doomed — was seriously undercut in federal court last month. Opinion Columnist Robin Abcarian Republicans thought they had a smoking gun, a claim by a longtime, reliable FBI informant that Biden and his son Hunter had secretly accepted millions of dollars from the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma. Unfortunately for Planet MAGA — including House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer of Kentucky, impeachment resolution author Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and the entire lineup of Fox News hosts, who have been frothing at the mouth over this story — it was allegedly all a lie. The smoking gun is turning out to be an exploding cigar. And the informant? Not so reliable after all. Last month, a federal grand jury indicted Alexander Smirnov, 43, on charges he lied when he told the FBI that the …

“Egg Rolls and Sweet Tea”: How food can serve as a catalyst for diversity

“Egg Rolls and Sweet Tea”: How food can serve as a catalyst for diversity

The title of Natalie Keng’s new cookbook, “Egg Rolls and Sweet Tea: Asia Inspired, Southern Style” is a nod to how her parents’ immigration from Taiwan to Georgia set the stage for her culinary upbringing. “Not only are they two of my favorite foods,” she said. “In many ways, they reflect who I am.”  Keng enjoyed a distinctly southern childhood — spent “suckling nectar out of honeysuckles, going to country fairs and fishing off the dock of Lake Altoona” — that was flavored with dishes from her parents’ home country, sparking a lifelong interest in global cuisine. As a kid, she worked in several of her parents’ retail stores at the local mall, including one that sold (you guessed it) egg rolls and sweet tea.  “This oddball pairing went ‘viral’ and folks lined up for what at first had seemed more like cultural confusion than culinary fusion,” Keng said.  “If you stop and think about the foods we enjoy as Americans, it’s easy to see the kaleidoscope of intersections and overlaps that makes us the …

Ford reveals easter egg in Mustang Mach-E, F-150 Lightning

Ford reveals easter egg in Mustang Mach-E, F-150 Lightning

If you drive a Ford EV, you can use this newly revealed easter egg to impress your loved ones this Valentine’s Day. Ford EV drivers can access a special easter egg Joshua Moore, a software engineer at Ford, revealed a new “easter egg” found on all vehicles with its SYNC 4A infotainment. Although the Sync 4A system has been around for a while on vehicles like the Mustang Mach-E and Ford F-150 Lightning, you likely have yet to find this hidden feature. Moore said his daughter, Rose, was born as he led development for the Sketch app found on many Ford vehicles today. The Sketch app is a feature where passengers can draw or doodle using the infotainment screen when parked. Moore began looking for ways to honor Rose while surprising others. The easter egg is “only accessible to those that know how to activate the secret function,” Moore explained on his LinkedIn. If you drive a Ford with SYNC 4A (or know someone who does), like the Mach-E or Lightning, rapidly tap the top …

Conservative peer outraged by Domino’s’ new Creme Egg cookies | Offbeat News

Domino’s Pizza and Cadbury have been blasted by a minister in the House of Lords after they teamed up to make a Domino’s cookie that contains a whole Creme Egg. Conservative Lord Bethell of Romford posted scathing tweets about the controversial cookie, which Domino’s announced for the first time on Thursday. “This is disgusting,” said Lord Bethell, who represents all health matters and legislation in the Upper House. “These are serious corporate food companies. What are they thinking,” he continued. “The executive team, the board and the shareholders should be ashamed of themselves.” In his second tweet, he reiterated that the team behind the controversial cookie, which are available in Domino’s stores from Monday, should be “ashamed” and added they should use their talents to find less “egregious” ways to make a return.

Could a scotch egg help solve climate change? | Climate News

Could a scotch egg help solve climate change? | Climate News

On this episode of ClimateCast, Tom Heap visits the home of afternoon tea, Fortnum and Mason, but there’s something different about the menu. Its scotch egg is made from cultivated meat – that’s meat grown in a lab. He speaks to the scientists behind the product to find out how it was made and explores if this could be a solution to our polluting meat and dairy industry – which accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions globally. Cultivated meat is technically not yet legal in the UK – but as pressure mounts to change our diet – could this be the future? And where does that leave farmers?
