No winter is complete without roasting at least one chicken (preferably a pair) on a bed of root vegetables. This year decided to skip to the good parts and cooked some potatoes in chicken fat.

They are trying to make sure the message can be understood by as many people as possible, including non-English speakers and folks for whom English is a second, third, or even fourth language. It looks lame but this isn’t actually that unusual when development orgs and NGO are reaching out to diverse populations.

If Trump or a member of his team are asked about it, they will be sure to remind everyone that the Nazis are national “socialists” etc

I have had a full beard for roughly a decade. One time I shaved it off but kept the stache, and surprised my wife with it by waking her up from a nap. She cried.

I caught literally the last 5 seconds of Trump’s press conference on the coronavirus. This is what I saw. Read more

This is potentially catastrophic. If Trump turns the coronavirus into a cultural wedge issue then we will end up in the same place China was when SARS broke out: an untrustworthy regime with a vested interest in downplaying and obscuring accurate reporting and suppressing information about a viral pandemic. Do you Read more

When he visited Saudi Arabia, I believe he insisted on being served “American” food at every meal; I think he did the same thing when he was in Korea. I know it’s funny/weird/etc but honestly it’s beyond that, it’s deeply insulting. Read more

Crucial to note — conservatives, and I believe Fox News and/or Trump himself, circulated a doctored video that made it appear as if Acosta was physically aggressive when the WH aide tried to take his mic away.

Grew up eating my abuela’s arroz con gris as a regular staple in the house (not sure where/how/why the entymological split happened but depending on where you came from in Cuba, arroz con gris was also known as moros y cristianos or simply congri, plus I’m sure there are other names as well). I can think of no comfort Read more

My aunts and cousins make this for the holidays. They seem to have a system down — my aunt even assembles it at home, leaving out the syrup and rosewater, then adds the syrup and rosewater when she arrives at her destination and bakes.

Fun fact I overlooked when I first read this story: the evacuated passengers were not informed that 14 among them had tested positive until after they landed in the US.

The more I think about it the more chilling I find it that Trump was so incensed about this sentencing. Stone was potentially on the hook for 9 years. Trump’s unprecedented meddling got that reduced to 40 months and assuming how our system works, Stone would likely only do half that time. Read more

I actually agree with you, but I think we’re in the minority. F4 is absolutely beloved, first family of Marvel, etc. As Nilus already mentioned, MCU content has already been launched off far lesser-known titles. Read more

It is admittedly my most controversial take. Thankfully my wife has chosen to overlook it.

I think what we saw last night was an opportunity for candidates to take the gloves off. They have been reticent to do so against each other, most especially against Sanders (heaven forbid!!!), but since Bloomberg isn’t really one of them there were no compunctions. Read more

I consider social skills — the ability to partner and collaborate with key stakeholders — to be critical technical aspects of being a leader in any capacity, but especially as an elected official. As you rightly point out he has no allies. That is why he’s accomplished relatively little in his 3 decades in public Read more
