For those of you who always (or often) make leaven for your sourdoughs....When I first started baking sourdough using Tartine method, I would make the leaven, doing it overnight. I was always left with a lot of extra and while Chad suggests using that to start a new starter, I didn't feel that was necessary. Recently I started using discard at the 4-6 hour point after feeding my starter. If I'm only making...

Five Points On The Federal Officers In Portland — And, Maybe Soon, A City Near You

Anonymous federal forces are occupying Oregon’s largest city against the wishes of local officials. They’ve snatched people off the street and shoved them into unmarked cars, beaten peaceful demonstrators and filled Portland with the haze of tear gas. And now, senior Trump administration figures are making noise about taking the Portland show on a national tour — a menacing and confusing display of federal force just months before Election Day. Here’s what we know about the federal presence i...

Hi everyone,I thought I'd share my first experiences with Chad Robertson's Tartine basic loaf - the one all the recipes in the book are based on. For context, I've been baking out of FWSY for the past few months, with generally good results though my loaves do tend towards overproofing and inadequate oven spring, likely due to my warm kitchen. So, with respect to the Tartine bread, I made thi...

‘The Cuphead Show!’ Sneak Peek: Netflix Teases the Nostalgic Design of Its Video Game Adaptation

Netflix’s upcoming animated series The Cuphead Show! has a bit of an unusual background: its retro Max Fleischer-inspired style would have you thinking that it’s a modern remake of a 1930s classic, when in fact it’s an adaptation of a 2017 video game. Developed by Canadian video game developer StudioMDHR, Cuphead is a run-and-gun video game that was inspired by the rubber hose style of animation used in cartoons of the 1930s, and built some of the surreal elements of the animation into its game...

'We had no idea how to do it': YouTube's founders, investors, and first employees tell the chaotic inside story of how it rose from failed dating site to $1.65 billion video behemoth (GOOG, GOOGL)

YouTube's cofounders originally thought "a generic platform where we could host all the videos on the internet" was too bold of an idea. So for about a week, the site was a dating platform — until it wasn't.  Fifteen years later, YouTube still reigns as the leader in video, but the climb to the top wasn't easy.  "What's hard to appreciate is how quickly we had grown beyond our capacity to manage the business," said Zahavah Levine, then YouTube's general counsel and vice president of business d...
