'Hot Guys Who Cook'

It's this show on the Style channel where some guys prepare a dish.

So far, every recipe I have seen these guys do sounds and looks grody.

This one last night, his gourmet recipe was rubbing butter and olive oil on some short ribs with a dusting of seasoning.

Oh man, did it look gross going in to the oven.

But what's annoying about the show, is that they use little graphics to make fun of the dudes, or to give random useless information the way Blind Date used to do back in the day.

Maya And Miguel

Came across this kind of weird kid's show last night on PBS.

What's weird about it, is one of the kids is missing an arm.

And doesn't this seem kind of cruel?:
'Andy, a European American boy who only has one arm and is Maya and Miguel's friend. Often seen in the background with Miguel and Theo, he wants to play the trombone.'
Can you play the trombone with a missing limb?

Woman killed by stray dogs in Bulgaria

Briton's legs were 'gnawed to the bone' by wild dogs

'SOFIA, Bulgaria - A pack of stray dogs mauled a British woman to death in a Bulgarian village, police said on Wednesday.

Margaret Ann Gordon, 56, was walking her pet dog when the pack of about eight wild dogs attacked her on Tuesday afternoon on the outskirts of the tiny village of Nedyalsko in southeastern Bulgaria, a police spokeswoman said.

Gordon, who lived in Nedyalsko with her partner for the past two years, died from blood loss before an ambulance arrived.

"Her legs were gnawed to the bone," the spokeswoman said. "It is a horrible story. I don't think anything like this has ever happened in the country. It's very shocking and terrifying indeed."

The mayor of the regional municipality sent a team to Nedyalsko to catch the animals.

Street dogs are a common problem in the Balkan country. Despite efforts to solve the issue, hordes of stray dogs roam parts of the capital Sofia.'

Drink to your health

The latest buzz on booze’s body benefits

'After years of flip-flopping, research seems to be settling in alcohol’s favor.

Attention, wine (and beer and martini) lovers: After years of flip-flopping, research seems to be settling in alcohol’s favor.

“The healthiest people do include moderate drinking in their lifestyle,” says Eric Rimm, Sc.D., associate professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. You can reap alcohol’s health benefits within weeks, and the gains accumulate over time. (Stick to one drink a day, and fewer than seven a week.)

To your heart!

Moderate drinking seems to raise HDL (“good”) cholesterol, helping reduce the risk for heart disease and possibly stroke, a study from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston indicates.

Alcohol also makes blood platelets less sticky, so they’re less likely to form into potential heart-attack-inducing clots.

To your pancreas!

Enjoying a drink a day may help regulate insulin (and, therefore, blood sugar) levels, lowering your risk for type 2 diabetes, according to a study in the journal Obesity. It appears that alcohol can increase cells’ sensitivity to insulin, which in turn allows cells to burn glucose faster and reduce blood sugar levels.

To your joints!

Indulging in three or more spirits a week could protect against rheumatoid arthritis, research presented at the European Congress of Rheumatology in Barcelona suggests. Scientists report that alcohol may dampen inflammation and suppress the body’s immune response that can lead to the often painful condition.

To feeling great all around!

Women who imbibe alcohol of any kind are twice as likely to report better-than-average health than women who don’t drink at all, researchers at the University of Miami in Coral Gables say. One possible reason why: Alcohol often goes hand in hand with making strong social connections, which tend to reduce stress.'

'You mean I have to copy AND paste!?!'

At The Corporation, they recently migrated one of our applications to a new server.

Well, this jacked up the existing interface we use as part of our daily functionality.

So until the issues are resolved, we have to go back to manually doing our work.

And this is funny, because we didn't realize how spoiled we have become.

But the worst part about having to do it manually, is that instead of clicking on a few buttons, we have to copy and paste each bit of information.

A co-worker and I were lamenting this, when it kind of cracked us up that out of all of the things to complain about, we're whining about a few clicks of the mouse.

I mean, it's not like we're out in the hot Mississippi sun picking cotton all day.

I say let her fry.

I wouldn't want some person blasting a horn in my neighborhood. Especially for the Broncos.

Neighbor never meant for Broncos fan to 'have a criminal experience'

'ADAMS COUNTY – The 69-year-old woman who faces a disorderly conduct charge for her Broncos celebration met in the magistrate's office on Monday.

Jeri Priest, who honks a contraption she calls "The Broncos Horn" after each Denver score on game day, met in the magistrates office to go over the charges she faces.

"We need to get all the police reports, witness statements and all the information relevant to this case, so that we can do a full investigation and make a decision as to what the appropriate course for this case is to take," said J.P. Moore, chief trial deputy attorney.

Priest faces the misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct which carries a maximum penalty of a $500 fine and 6 months in jail. She is due back in court on December 18 for a pre-trial conference.

After every Broncos' score, Priest and her husband Larry and their neighbors let off one hearty honk for each point scored. The horn is an odd-looking device Larry Priest built 30 years ago. It's a two-wheel dolly carrying six car horns all hooked to a car battery. A relay switch allows Jeri Priest to sound the horn from the comfort of her home.

"Go Broncos, I love the Broncos. I don't care if they lost yesterday, I still honk the horns, I'm always a Broncos fan," said Priest.

The neighbor, who asked 9NEWS to remain anonymous, has called the Adams County Sheriff's Department numerous times to complain about the noise. On October 21, as the Broncos battled the Steelers, deputies filed an arrest report accusing Priest of disorderly conduct.

He told 9NEWS he never meant for this to get out of hand this way.

"I'm not asking for the horn to be silenced," the man said, "I'm asking for it to be strategically placed. It's not my intent for a 70-year-old woman to have a criminal experience."

He went on to say, "I would like everyone to know, I tried to go there a couple of years ago to try to talk to them, as any neighborhood. Jeri Priest was very rude ... she didn't want to point it behind the house, she wouldn't do it."

The Priests say they have since put the horn in their backyard.

The neighbor told 9NEWS, "I will drop the charges if I get a firm commitment from them that they put the horn in their back yard pointing north or east--pointing away from my house."

The man also said the "whole problem is the result of the lack of communication. I would even pay for a mediator to talk to them."

He said the horn is more than 10 times the acceptable decibel amount, it's very loud and "bases through my house."'

Watching those cooking shows really does pay off.

It's not a good thing to wake up to a cooking show.

I was lollygagging around watching some guy cook new potatoes, when my morning stomach grumblings took effect.

As I watched more and more awesome dishes be prepared, I was thinking, hmmm....I don't have to do anything major today, and I do need to go to the store....hey...I'll cook!

So I racked my brain to find out what I have been craving recently, and pick a dish to make.

Hands down, it was the chicken fettuccine with a white wine and garlic sauce, that they used to serve at a former place of employment.

I have attempted fettuccine in wine sauce before, but they never resulted in what they sold at the restaurant.

So I did a quick web search, and couldn't find anything that came close to what I wanted.

'Oh well, let's see if I can make it up', I thought.

So off to the store.

An hour and $100 later [I stocked up this time since I normally shop every day, because food always seems to spoil before I can get to it], I was ready to commence cooking activities.

However, whilst putting the groceries away, my OCD kicked in.

Instead of washing veggies and prepping for the task ahead, I delved in to the laborious project of cleaning the refrigerator.

Luckily, it hasn't been so long since I did it, so it didn't take too long.

While doing this, I decided that I was going to poach the chicken breast instead of pan cooking or baking.

I grabbed a pot, threw in some thyme, turmeric, salt and pepper, and plop! went the chicken breasts.

I'd give you tablespoon and ingredient amounts, but I don't really cook that way.



I let that simmer on low to medium heat, while I prepped the other stuff [poaching at a low heat allows the flavors to permeate the breast, and not overcook. It also helps to keep the chicken moist - a thing I sometimes have a problem with].

Next up were the lemons.

I thought about using some imported lemon juice/oil I saw at the store, but opted for the real thing instead.

I threw two lemons in the microwave for a minute.

I learned on some show that if you microwave citrus fruits for just a bit, it will help you get more juice out of them [it works].

Juiced and strained the lemons, and put it in a cup with some olive oil[so that it didn't evaporate while doing other stuff].

Chopped up some fresh mushrooms, and minced two cloves of garlic.

Next up, fired up the saucepan and threw some regular butter, with an equal amount of this sea salt butter I found [I was leery of doing all sea salt butter, because I didn't want it to turn out too salty].

Sauteed the garlic until golden brown, threw in the mushrooms, and chopped the combo up some more in the butter.

Next up, threw in the lemon juice [with the oil], and added thyme, turmeric, salt and pepper again [like the poached chicken], and reduced it to a low heat.

I then took the chicken breasts, washed off the boiled-off fat, and sliced in to decent strips.

This is the point where you should probably start the fettuccine.

I like to keep mine al-dente so that when you add the sauce, it doesn't muck up on you.

Back to the chicken and sauce: turned it up to a medium simmer and once that started bubbling, threw in about a half of a cup of Sauvignon Blanc, and let that simmer and reduce.

Finished up the pasta, threw it a bowl, and added the chicken, with a few extra spoonfuls of the sauce.

Holy Moishe!

It turned out WAY better than I hoped.

I must say, I actually liked it better than the one they served at the restaurant.

It was light and fresh, with a great lemon taste.

You could barely notice the butter or wine, but you could tell they were there.

This is the first time using turmeric, and poaching the meat first.

Definitely going to do that in the future.

So there you go, a helpful recommendation borne of my random culinary talents.

Reminds me of a dream I had once.

There were these huge mutant scorpions on Earth and occasionally people would have to defend themselves against them. They mostly kept to themselves, but occasionally one would wander in to a city and cause havoc. It reminded me of Starship Troopers, but set in today's world.
Scientists find fossil of super-sized bug

Sea scorpion, which measured 8 feet long, was once world's biggest bug

'LONDON - This was a bug that you'd have to look up to and definitely couldn't step on.

British scientists have stumbled across a fossilized claw, part of an ancient sea scorpion, that is of such large proportion it would make the entire creature the biggest bug ever.

How big? Bigger than you, about 2.5 meters, or 8 feet, long.

The discovery in 390-million-year-old rocks also suggests that spiders, insects, crabs and similar creatures were much larger in the past than previously thought, said Simon Braddy, a paleontologist from the University of Bristol and one of the study's three authors.

"This is an amazing discovery," Braddy said Tuesday.

"We have known for some time that the fossil record yields monster millipedes, super-sized scorpions, colossal cockroaches and jumbo dragonflies. But we never realized until now just how big some of these ancient creepy-crawlies were," he said.

The research found a type of sea scorpion that was almost half a meter longer than previous estimates and the largest one ever to have evolved.

The study, published online Tuesday in the Royal Society's journal Biology Letters, also means that before this sea scorpion became extinct it was much longer than today's average man is tall.

Prof. Jeorg W. Schneider, a paleontologist at Freiberg Mining Academy in southeastern Germany, praised the study, saying it provides new information about how big the ancient scorpions became.

"These 2.5-meter ones were the last of the giant scorpions," said Schneider, who was not involved in the study. "These scorpions were dominant for millions of years because they didn't have natural enemies. Eventually they were wiped out by large fish with jaws and teeth."

Braddy's partner paleontologist Markus Poschmann found the claw fossil several years ago in a quarry near Prum, Germany, that probably had once been an ancient estuary or swamp.

"I was loosening pieces of rock with a hammer and chisel when I suddenly realized there was a dark patch of organic matter on a freshly removed slab. After some cleaning I could identify this as a small part of a large claw," said Poschmann, another author of the study.

"Although I did not know if it was more complete or not, I decided to try and get it out. The pieces had to be cleaned separately, dried and then glued back together. It was then put into a white plaster jacket to stabilize it," he said.

Eurypterids, or ancient sea scorpions, are believed to be the extinct aquatic ancestors of today's scorpions and possibly all arachnids, a class of joint-legged, invertebrate animals, including spiders, scorpions, mites and ticks.

In an interview, Braddy said the fossil was from a Jaekelopterus Rhenaniae, a kind of scorpion that lived only in Germany for about 10 million years, about 400 million years ago.

He said some geologists believe that gigantic sea scorpions evolved due to higher levels of oxygen in the atmosphere in the past. Others suspect they evolved in an "arms race" alongside their likely prey, fish that had armor on their outer bodies.

Braddy said the sea scorpions also were cannibals that fought and ate one other, so it helped to be as big as they could be.

"The competition between this scorpion and its prey was probably like a nuclear standoff, an effort to have the biggest weapon," he said. "Hundreds of millions of years ago, these sea scorpions had the upper hand over vertebrates — backboned animals like ourselves."

That competition ended a long time ago.

But Braddy said the next time you swat a fly or squish a spider at home "think about the insects that lived long ago. You wouldn't want to swat one of those."'

Today In Useless Info - 'Snow'

More snow falls each year in southern Canada and the northern US than at the North Pole.

Large snowflakes can measure up to 2" across and contain hundreds of individual crystals.

The largest snowflake ever found was 8" by 12". It was reported to have fallen in Bratsk, Siberia in 1971.

In Germany, frogs were once kept as pets because they croaked more loudly when air pressure fell and when bad weather was coming. They acted like primitive living barometers.

An ice core 1,200 feet long can show what the climate was 1,400 years ago.

The lowest ever temp recorded was at Vostok, a research base in Antarctica on July 21, 1983: -128.6°F.

The heaviest snowfall in 24 hours is 76" at Silver Lake, CO 4/15/21

The heaviest snow storm occurred on Feb. 13-19, 1959 at Mt. Shasta Ski Bowl, CA: 189" of snow fell.

Sunflower Seeds Kill

Investigators: Teen distracted by sunflower seeds prior to trooper death

'ADAMS COUNTY - The district attorney announced formal charges Monday against the 17-year-old driver involved in a car crash that killed a Colorado State Trooper.

Cody Loos was charged with careless driving resulting in death and careless driving resulting in bodily injury. Both charges carry a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

"We are satisfied that the facts of this case support the charges," said Sgt. John Hahn of the Colorado State Patrol. "These charges are a logical conclusion to this case. Our hope as an organization is that the filing of the charges will help the victims in this case and their families to get closure and resolution."

The North Metro Accident Investigation Team was called in to conduct the investigation because there were law enforcement officers involved in the crash. They say Loos, who was driving a 1994 Ford pickup on I-76, looked down for some sunflower seeds on his console and when he looked back up, traffic was backed up in front of him, leading to the crash.

According to investigators, traffic on I-76 had backed up because 65-year-old Terrance Rice had lost a 2,500 gallon plastic water tank he was towing at about 4:30 p.m. on October 11. Troopers Zach Templeton and Scott Hinshaw had stopped to help load it back onto Rice's trailer, which he was towing with his 1997 Dodge pickup.

Investigators say at about 5 p.m., after the truck and trailer were moved onto the median and the tank had been loaded back on, Loos, distracted by his sunflower seeds, swerved onto the shoulder and then the median to avoid hitting the traffic which had slowed in front of him.

That's when Loos' Ford pickup slammed into the trailer and the two state troopers, authorities say.

Hinshaw suffered fractures to his left fibula and right tibia. He was still wearing his motorcycle helmet when he was struck. Troopers tell 9NEWS Hinshaw is expected to undergo more surgery this week.

Templeton, who arrived in his patrol car and was not wearing a helmet, suffered a broken tibia, broken femur, lacerated spleen and severe head trauma. He was airlifted from the scene, but died the following day.

Rice faces a charge for spilling the load on the highway, which carries a $100 fine.

An investigation of the crash concluded that drugs or alcohol were not factors.'
