Lent was traditionally a time of fasting and on Shrove Tuesday, Anglo-Saxon Christians went to confession

Lent was traditionally a time of fasting and on Shrove Tuesday, Anglo-Saxon Christians went to confession and were “shriven” (absolved from their sins). Shrove Tuesday also is known as Pancake Tuesday. Because fasting is part of Lent, pancakes were a popular dish to serve on Shrove Tuesday because the dish “uses up” eggs, milk and flour. Working in batches, melt 1⁄2 tablespoon of the remaining butter or oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. For each pancake, spoon batter into the skillet and cook until bubbles appear on the tops and the bottoms are golden. Flip the pancakes and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute longer until other side is golden brown. Repeat with remaining butter and batter. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, melted butter, and egg. Whisk flour mixture into buttermilk mixture just until moistened, with small to medium lumps remaining. In a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet or on a griddle, cook bacon over medium-high until fat is rendered and bacon is browned on one side, 5 to 6 minutes. Flip and cook until golden and crisp on underside, 1...

View research | View latest news | Sign up for updates We present the rational synthesis of nanoporous CuS for the first time by chemical dealloying method. The morphologies of the CuS catalysts are controlled by the composition of the original amorphous alloys. Nanoporous Cu2S is firstly formed during the chemical dealloying process and then the Cu2S transforms into CuS. The nanoporous CuS exhibits excellent photocatalytic activity for the degradation of the methylene blue (MB), methyl orange (MO) and rhodamine B (RhB). The excellent photocatalytic activity of the nanoporous CuS is mainly attributed to the large specific surface area, high adsorbing capacity of dyes and low recombination of the photo generated electrons and holes. In the photo degradation process, both chemical and phot...

Juno-based food truck serving up Southern comfort food – Food and Dining – The Palm Beach Post

The Podunk Eats food truck is open six days a week on Ellison Wilson Road across from Bert Winters Park in unincorporated Juno Beach. JUNO BEACH — Hailing from Lake Placid, a tiny, rural town near Sebring, Florida, Angela Grear said she picked up an education on southern-style cooking early in life. Grear is putting those skills to use at the new Juno Beach-area food truck she co-owns with her husband, Dario. Even the name is a callback to her small-town roots: Podunk Eats. The truck, parked in the sandy grass across from Bert Winters Park on Ellison Wilson Road, cooks up southern-inspired dishes, such as $5 bacon jalapeno hush puppies and $6 alligator tail served in a tortilla with coleslaw and horseradish aioli. She and her husband both pointed to the podunk signature burger as a menu highlight. At $10, it’s topped with homemade pimento cheese, collard greens and other items on a cornbread-dusted bun. The burger has been a hit with customers so far, Dario Grear said, noting that his wife makes the patties herself with a mix of spices. >> RELATED: At last, a Juno Beach ‘eyesore’ is coming down… but don’t count on anything new there soon The Grears, who live in nearb...

Following Emotional Hearing, Board of Education Votes on Combo of Engineered Natural Grass and Artificial Turf at CMS

Greenwich Free Press (https://greenwichfreepress.com/schools/following-emotional-hearing-board-of-education-votes-on-combo-of-engineered-natural-grass-and-artificial-turf-at-cms-135925/) There was passionate testimony from both sides over artificial turf vs real grass fields at Central Middle School, which was a decision item on the agenda. Western Middle School’s fields have been out of use since contamination was discovered in 2016. Photo: Leslie Yager The meeting was held at Western Middle School, an irony that was not lost on Gordon Beinstein, principal at the school that has not had access to its playing fields since contamination was discovered in 2016. “I want to remind all of you that your debate is a luxury we at Western do not enjoy,” Beinstein said. “At the glacial place with which this is moving through the system I fear our fields will never open and will be Memorial Fields. …. Enough. Our kids deserve better.” Central Middle School PE teacher Nancy Tarantino said she had transferred from Eastern Middle School despite warnings about the fields constantly being wet. “I believed it couldn’t be that bad,” she recalled, adding, “Any time there is any precipitation on t...

Two men ‘confess to strangling model, 24, before filming a chilling video mocking their victim’

Two men are said to have confessed to strangling a Brazilian model who vanished from her Los Angeles home last month, before driving to 1,300 miles to Oklahoma to ditch her car.  The suspects, named as Thiago Philipe Souza Bragança and Walderson Junior da Silva, allegedly used a power cord to kill Ana Braga, 24, G1 reports.  Thiago is said to have told police he and da Silva were high on drugs at the time of the killing but that they were defending from themselves from Ana, who had a knife.  The two men, arrested Saturday in Brazil, are then said to have filming a chilling video mocking their victim after hiding her body into a comforter.  Surveillance footage shows the accused going into Braga’s LA home with the aspiring model before leaving again a few hours later with the comforter, according to reports.  California investigators revealed on Saturday they found a video believed to be of Braga’s bloodied body. Authorities said that a car registered in her name was found abandoned 1,000 miles away in Oklahoma.  Two men are said to have confessed to strangling Brazilian model Ana Braga who vanished from her Los Angeles home last month The suspects, named as Thiago P...

Tray fillers were first developed in the 1960s to replace the large amount of labor needed

Tray fillers were first developed in the 1960s to replace the large amount of labor needed to fill growing containers for the expanding market for annual transplants. Labor reduction was as great as 90% as these machines could fill up to 900 flats per hour. Additionally, the uniformity of soil in the tray resulted in more even plant growth and marketability. Since then, several types of machines have been developed to handle the wide variety of container sizes now used. Many improvements and attachments are available that will unstack and insert pots, return surplus soil to the hopper, compact and level the soil and dibble holes for seeds or plugs. For most growers, trays are filled with a purchased, pre-prepared growing mix. Container filling should be considered as part of an efficient system that handles the soil from the bag or bale to the time when the tray is planted and ready for moving to the growing area. Handling of trays is expensive, adding 2 to 4 cents to its cost each time a tray is moved. In addition to the filler, accessory equipment should also be considered part of the system. This can include a soil fluffer or bale breaker, conveyors, transplanting conveyor o...

How to protect your Prius catalytic converter from thieves

Q: As a specialist in Toyota hybrids at Art’s Automotive in Berkeley, we have replaced close to 100 Prius catalytic converters since late spring of 2019. Most have been 2004 to 2009 models, and the replacement cost is about $3,000. For an additional $250, we weld a 3/8-inch-thick wire rope from the exhaust manifold back to the resonator on both sides. Thieves never get these converters out if they try again. The stolen converters do not appear to be sold through normal recycling channels because you must show ID. These particular converters fetch $225 to $250. Like Mr. Roadshow’s Facebook page for more questions and answers about Bay Area roads, freeways and commuting. Q: There is a $225 product called “Cat Security.” It is a shield that bolts up to the bottom of your Prius, which blocks access to the car. There are also cheaper, generic cable-lock-type solutions to put a lock on your converter. Q: Coming on the ballot is an initiative requiring people to remove their catalytic converters and place them in a gift bag for thieves. Must be out on the sidewalk by 10 p.m. The initiative is expected to pass 90-10. Q: My spouse got his “You must go into the DMV to renew your license”...

“This is almost unbelievable,” Daryl Allen, a semi-retired engineer, commented after reading ConsumerAffairs’ first story on

“This is almost unbelievable,” Daryl Allen, a semi-retired engineer, commented after reading ConsumerAffairs’ first story on the Volkswagen “Dirty Diesel” … “This is almost unbelievable,” Daryl Allen, a semi-retired engineer, commented after reading ConsumerAffairs’ first story on the Volkswagen “Dirty Diesel” scandal last Sept. 18. The story reported that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and California’s clean air regulators had charged that VW — one of the most trusted brands on earth — had installed secret software on its TDI Clean Diesel engines to enable them to pass emissions tests while polluting merrily the rest of the time at up to 40 times the legal limit. Volkswagen’s response did nothing to instill confidence. It admitted the software existed, but top executives claimed to have no idea how it got there or who was responsible, while promising to get to the bottom of it. Critics compared this to O.J. Simpson’s claim that he would stop at nothing to find the fiend who murdered his wife and her friend.    By year’s end, VW had fired numerous executives and engine...
