Racially insensitive NYU menu leads apology, firings

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 16:39:15 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — A racially insensitive menu for a Black History Month meal at New York University has led to a company apology and workers being fired. According to The New York Times , NYU President Andrew Hamilton says it was "inexcusably insensitive" for a food service company to feature barbecued ribs, corn bread, collard greens, and beverages with racist connotations: Kool-Aid and watermelon-flavored water. Sophomore Nia Harris, who's black, says the head cook dismissed her objections and told her that black employees planned the menu. Aramark says it has fired two workers and is retraining its NYU employees.

Judge sides with Emeril producer in fight with Florida House

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 00:26:47 UT

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida judge says a television producer for one of Emeril Lagasse's cooking shows does not have to turn over tax returns and detailed financial records to the Florida House. The Florida House last month subpoenaed years of records detailing how the show "Emeril's Florida" spent millions it received from the state's tourism agency. Some records have been handed over, but producer Pat Roberts refused to turn over everything House Republicans wanted. Circuit Judge Karen Gievers ruled Wednesday that the records being sought by the House were not pertinent to the investigation and that handing them over would violate privacy rights guaranteed by Florida's constitution.

'Captain' is new top dog at New York governor's mansion

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 17:31:13 UT

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York's first family has a new first dog. Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo introduced his new puppy Captain on Monday night at a meeting at the governor's mansion with mayors from around the state. The 14-week-old dog is a Siberian-shepherd mix, with some Malamute thrown in. Cuomo says he wanted to name the dog Excelsior after the state motto but was outvoted by his daughters. Captain isn't the first animal to join the governor's family. His longtime girlfriend, Food Network star Sandra Lee, has two white cockatoos named Phoenix and Halo.

Bill would bar Arizona cities from taxing sugary drinks

Wed, 7 Feb 2018 23:16:54 UT

PHOENIX (AP) — A proposal in the Arizona House that would bar cities and counties from joining a growing national trend of taxing sugary drinks got a glowing reception Wednesday. The proposal from Republican Rep. T.J. Shope of Coolidge advanced in the House Ways and Means Committee on an 8-1 vote, and even the lone Democrat who voted against the measure said she supported it but voted against it only because of concerns from her constituents. Shope's proposal doesn't specifically mention taxes on sugary drinks, only saying any tax on food products must be uniform. But testimony from a supermarket industry lobbyist made it clear that's what the bill is all about.

More effort being made to help Indiana's hurting bees

Tue, 6 Feb 2018 10:01:11 UT

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — For years, decades actually, alarm bells have been sounding in scientific communities regarding the United States' falling bee population. Scientists blame everything from disease-spreading mites to overuse of pesticides to depletion of natural habitats for the decline of bee populations. Many scientists and beekeeping enthusiasts, like Tim Caldwell, owner of Indy Bee Supply out of Indianapolis, think it's a combination of many different factors. Regardless the cause, an exhausted bee population can have a severe impact on the environment, agricultural landscapes and food supply, Caldwell said. But there is good news.

Sequim seeing rise in swan population

Sat, 27 Jan 2018 07:02:18 UT

PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) — This winter, locals can look to Sequim's skies and waters for booming trumpeter swan populations. "They've definitely been rising in recent years," said Bob Boekelheide of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society. Trumpeter swans were an uncommon sight in the Sequim area years ago. The first sighting of a swan was by society volunteers during the annual Christmas Bird Count in 1982, Boekelheide said. Birders never spotted more than 50 at a time until 2008, Boekelheide said, and there's been a big increase in the past three years. Typically, Sequim will see the most swans between January and March before they fly north to Canada and Alaska, Boekelheide said.



Pegasus Day: A party, built around a $16 million race

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 19:47:02 UT

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The lineup of events at Gulfstream Park this weekend includes parties, concerts, fine dining, red carpet entrances for celebrities, tributes to fashion, even a popup night club. There's also a $16 million horse race. If the Pegasus World Cup isn't something completely unique, it's close. A race offering the biggest purse in the sport may be its centerpiece, but the way the Stronach Group — which operates Gulfstream and created the Pegasus event, which will be run for the second time on Saturday — sees things, the notion of marrying entertainment and racing was something long overdue.
