Company to grow lettuce in Virginia using fish waste

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 05:53:11 UT

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A company that uses fish waste to grow organic baby lettuce and arugula plans to create 21 new jobs in Northern Virginia. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe's office announced Friday that Kappa Farms will invest $865,000 to open a new "aquaponics" operation in Loudoun County. McAuliffe approved a $40,000 grant from the Governor's Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund, which Loudoun will match with local funds. Kappa plans to produce more than $7 million in lettuces in the next three years.



Bottles sucked dry of wine among charred wildfire remains

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 07:52:24 UT

NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Metal racks sagging with dozens of blackened bottles were among the smoldering remains of a Napa Valley winery destroyed by wildfires that raced through a region famous for its fine food and drink. The bottles were empty, sucked dry of wine. Some wine barrels were intact, as well as a swimming pool and chairs, but otherwise, the Signorello Estate winery structure was gone. Throughout Northern California's wine country, vintners able to get to property surveyed the damage to vineyards, tasting rooms and storage while others had to wait patiently for flames to die down.



From DL to fullback, Jets' Thomas makes big switch

Fri, 6 Oct 2017 19:01:50 UT

Lawrence Thomas is no longer a secret weapon for the New York Jets. The big defensive lineman has also been used through the first few weeks of the season as a fullback, and even had a 15-yard reception against Miami two weeks ago. Thomas performed so well in the role that the Jets made the move more than just a wrinkle in the offense by changing his jersey number from 97 to 44. "It feels good that I'm over there with the offense now," Thomas said. "I can just help them and create more plays and make more plays. I'm glad I got a number change, too, because I had to keep reporting to the referee every time I checked in." The in-game announcements of "No.



Bugs are in the food by design at Bangkok fine-dining bistro

Wed, 4 Oct 2017 01:36:34 UT

BANGKOK (AP) — Ants and beetles in the kitchen? Normally that'd close down a restaurant immediately, but for a unique eatery in Bangkok, bugs in the beef ragu and pests in the pesto are the business plan. Tucking into insects is nothing new in Thailand, where street vendors pushing carts of fried crickets and buttery silkworms have long fed locals and adventurous tourists alike. But bugs are now fine-dining at Insects in the Backyard, a Bangkok bistro aiming to revolutionize views of nature's least-loved creatures and what you can do with them. "In Thailand, there is a long history of local populations, of people consuming insects and they continue to do, in large amounts.



Northeast farmers grappling with weather fluctuations

Sun, 1 Oct 2017 17:01:06 UT

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Vermont farmers are expected to face higher temperatures, more precipitation and a longer growing season due to climate change in the next 50 years, experts say. With that projection, some of the impacts could be a higher risk of damaging floods, increased erosion and loss of nutrients from fields, wet soils as well as more need for irrigation, according to the University of Extension Center for Sustainable Agriculture. Already farmers are grappling with some of those factors. "Farmers are really dealing with uncertainty," said Joshua Faulkner, coordinator of the center's Farming and Climate Change program. "They can throw the normal expectation out the window in terms of weather.



Australian who faked cancer fined for false donation claims

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 02:35:36 UT

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — An Australian cookbook author who falsely said she beat cancer through healthy eating was fined by a court on Thursday for misleading consumers by lying about her charitable donations. The judge had ruled in March that Belle Gibson's deceptive claims of donating the proceeds from the sales of "The Whole Pantry" and a related app constituted unconscionable conduct under Australian consumer law. The book and app were withdrawn. Federal Court Justice Debra Mortimer on Thursday ordered Gibson to pay a total of 410,000 Australian dollars ($320,000) for five contraventions of the law relating to false claims that the proceeds would go to various charities.



Brewing a great cup of coffee depends on chemistry and physics

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 09:58:07 UT

(The Conversation is an independent and nonprofit source of news, analysis and commentary from academic experts.) Christopher Hendon, University of Oregon (THE CONVERSATION) Coffee is unique among artisanal beverages in that the brewer plays a significant role in its quality at the point of consumption. In contrast, drinkers buy draft beer and wine as finished products; their only consumer-controlled variable is the temperature at which you drink them. Why is it that coffee produced by a barista at a cafe always tastes different than the same beans brewed at home? It may be down to their years of training, but more likely it’s their ability to harness the principles of chemistry and physics.
