‘I’d buy fish and hide it under kale’: the star vegan chef who developed a taste for liver | Life and style

‘I’d buy fish and hide it under kale’: the star vegan chef who developed a taste for liver | Life and style

Alex Jamieson’s veganism became world famous when she appeared in the 2004 film Super Size Me, the seminal Oscar-nominated documentary that probed our relationship with fast food. Jamieson was working as a vegan, health-focused private chef in New York when a conversation between her and then boyfriend Morgan Spurlock – the film’s star and director – led to the idea. Its success took them to 20 countries, won Jamieson deals for three books, including Vegan Cooking for Dummies, 25,000 subscribers to her vegan recipe and mindset newsletter and $7,000-an-hour speaking engagements across the US. Then, in 2012, she began craving burgers. “I started having dreams about salmon and waking up shocked, thinking I’d eaten it,” she says. “I went out for dinner and ordered tofu; a girlfriend ordered a burger and my mouth was watering.” The irony was not lost on her, having gained followers and built a career after helping Spurlock back to health though veganism after his 30-day McDonald’s diet for the documentary. More seriously, though, more than a decade of veganism had …

Lego Lineups: Company Warns California P.D. To Stop Using Lego Heads To Hide Criminal’s Faces

Authored by Milt Harris via PJMedia.com, Murrieta is a city in Southern California with just over 100,000 residents. Even though it isn’t a huge city, the Neighborhood Scout, a website that tracks local statistics for potential homebuyers or renters, reported this about the municipality on its website: The crime rate in Murrieta is considerably higher than the national average across all communities in America from the largest to the smallest, although at 15 crimes per one thousand residents, it is not among the communities with the very highest crime rate. The chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime in Murrieta is 1 in 65. Based on FBI crime data, Murrieta is not one of the safest communities in America. Relative to California, Murrieta has a crime rate that is higher than 40% of the state’s cities and towns of all sizes. It’s common for the public to be interested in the details of an arrest, including the crime committed and the appearance of the suspect. However, in California, there is a law …

Scientists reveal the best place to hide from a nuclear blast

Scientists reveal the best place to hide from a nuclear blast

The blast wave from an explosion is capable of producing airspeeds powerful enough to lift people into the air and cause severe injuries. (CREDIT: Creative Commons) In a world fraught with geopolitical tensions and the looming specter of nuclear warfare, understanding the consequences of a nuclear detonation has become a matter of paramount importance. When a nuclear bomb goes off, the devastation it wreaks is unimaginable. Anything in close proximity is instantly vaporized, while radiation can pose a grave threat even at a distance. However, for those who find themselves between these extremes, there is another peril to contend with—the blast wave generated by the explosion, capable of producing airspeeds powerful enough to lift individuals into the air and cause severe injury. This article delves into the intricacies of the impact of a nuclear blast, highlighting the findings of a groundbreaking study conducted by researchers from the University of Nicosia. Their investigation simulated the effects of an atomic bomb explosion from a typical intercontinental ballistic missile and the subsequent blast wave on individuals seeking shelter …

2 Huge Insecurities Alpha Males Hide, As Written By One | Glenn Harris

Growing up, blame and insecurity dominated my life. To survive, I learned to remain one step ahead of others and wear strong emotional armor. Today, I accept I am just another rider on the bus of life, and I no longer insist on sitting in the driver’s seat all the time. RELATED: How To Capture A Man’s Heart Without Getting Caught Up In The Myth That Men Should Be ‘Dominant’ Here are two huge insecurities alpha males hide, as written by one: 1. Body image is an endless struggle. Tough on the outside but insecure on the inside, they depend on their physical ability to dominate and compete aggressively against other men. They learn what it takes to rise above their competition physically. While these guys usually don’t verbalize their insecurity directly, their dissatisfaction with body image is detrimental. A body image survey conducted by Today and AOL in 2014 found men worry more about their appearance than they do other aspects of their lives (health, family, relationships, job, finances). Nearly half of the men …

‘Treaties don’t work’: Wanted Western fugitives hide in wartime Russia | Crime News

Chad Hower is a wanted man. In 2009, the American software developer was federally indicted for parental kidnapping. He had allegedly failed to appear at a court hearing in Venango County, Pennsylvania in the US with his 10-year-old son, Alex, contradicting a custody order from his ex-wife. Hower to this day insists on his innocence, claiming he had rightful custody. A few weeks later, he was arrested at his hotel in Bulgaria where he’d been attending a conference. “It was pretty horrible,” Hower told Al Jazeera from St Petersburg, Russia. “I went through five different Bulgarian prisons: they were full of roaches, there was no heat, four of us crammed into a room for two.” Since Bulgaria doesn’t recognise parental kidnapping as a crime, Hower was eventually released. He moved to the small Caribbean island of Saint Kitts, where he was shortly joined by Alex. But he was still on the run. He couldn’t access his bank accounts, and his health deteriorated. So in 2023, he travelled via Cuba to Russia, where he was granted …

Corporations Are Losing The ESG Battle, Forcing Them To Hide Advocacy

Corporations Are Losing The ESG Battle, Forcing Them To Hide Advocacy

Authored by Kevin Stocklin via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours), (Illustration by The Epoch Times, Getty Images, Shutterstock) Wall Street titans appear to be having an increasingly hard time reconciling the conflicting goals of progressive activism and shareholder returns. Until recently, many banks, asset managers, and insurers portrayed these goals as complementary, asserting that climate risk is financial risk and that the competence of management can be assessed by its commitment to social justice goals. Today, however, those narratives are rarely heard. BlackRock, JPMorgan Chase, and State Street recently exited from Climate Action 100+, a coalition of the world’s largest fund managers that pledges to “ensure the world’s largest corporate greenhouse gas emitters take necessary action on climate change.” On the heels of that exit, 16 conservative state attorneys general have demanded answers from BlackRock’s directors regarding the firm’s continued membership in other similar groups, which they assert could be a conflict of interest with its fiduciary responsibility to investors. “We applaud BlackRock’s reevaluation of its status [with Climate Action 100+],” the attorneys general wrote …

What’s Next When Policy Makers Can No Longer Hide Their Sins?

What’s Next When Policy Makers Can No Longer Hide Their Sins?

Authored by Matthew Piepenburg via VonGreyerz.gold, It’s almost comical to watch policy makers of all stripes and country codes caught in a corner yet pretending we don’t notice. Children In Charge I’m reminded of the kid with his hand in the cookie jar while pretending his parents can’t see him—denying his guilt despite the crumbs falling from his face. Again: It’s almost comical. But there’s really nothing funny at all about major economies crawling into recession (Germany, Japan, UK, China) or denying recession (USA) while our mental midgets from DC to the EU play with bonds, inflation currency and war like kindergarteners with gas and matches. Can’t Hide the Debt Cookie Crumbs Speaking of kids caught with crumbs on their face while denying responsibility, it seems that even our central bankers can’t keep hiding the facts of now “unsustainable debt” (Powell) with clever lies, such as they had tried to do in the past: In short, the days of hiding bad math behind empty words are now coming to an end, as most recently evidenced by another comical treasury …
