The Gulf Stream, the Cold Blob, and a Potentially Frozen Europe

The NY Times has a fantastic interactive piece about a particularly disturbing aspect of the climate crisis: the evidence that a huge Atlantic circulation pattern is weakening and could collapse, leading to “a monstrous change” in temperature, precipitation, and other chaotic effects across the globe. Now, a spate of studies, including one published last week, suggests this northern portion of the Gulf Stream and the deep ocean currents it’s connected to may be slowing. Pushing the bounds of ...

Liverpool Fire First Shot In Club vs Country Battle

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says players cannot be allowed to travel for March’s international break if they have to quarantine when they return. In the UK at present, anyone returning from coronavirus ‘red list’ countries is required to quarantine for 10 days. Fifa says clubs can prevent players leaving if they need to quarantine for five days or more on their return. “I understand the need of the different FA’s but it is a time where you cannot make everybody happy,” said Klopp. “The player...

Coffee for the birds: connecting bird-watchers with shade-grown coffee

Bird-friendly coffee is shade-grown, meaning that it is grown and harvested under the canopy of mature trees, a process that parallels how coffee was historically grown. But with most farms in Central and South America and the Caribbean converting to full-sun operations, crucial bird habitats for migrating and resident bird species are being lost.

(CNN) — If a steaming bowl of soup strike...

(CNN) — If a steaming bowl of soup strikes you as the ultimate in old-fashioned comfort, you’ve got plenty of company. Soup is one of the world’s oldest and most universal foods, said Janet Clarkson, author of the book “Soup: A Global History.” “Every culture has some kind of soup,” she said. “It’s got very ancient roots.” Early people simmered everything from turtle shells to lengths of bamboo in soup, she writes in the book, turning out metal soup pots starting in the Bronze Age. Boiling food ...

Peruvian-Chinese food dazzles at Chifa in Eagle Rock

With an estimated Asian population of 600,000, Peru is second only to Brazil in South America when it comes to Asian influence — and that influence, not surprisingly, is found all through the food. Some notable examples: Nobu Matsuhisa, whose sushi concepts have spread across the world, has Peruvian roots. Also, Gastón Acurio, whose restaurants are found all across South America, and in the US as well, though sadly not in SoCal. And in the case of Chifa, the dazzling food (and look) is the work ...

The open-air restaurant streets that have popped up across Southern California — Citrus Avenue in Covina, Greenleaf Avenue in Whittier, Union Street in Old Pasadena, Catalina Avenue in Redondo Beach, Manhattan Avenue in Manhattan Beach and so many more — is perhaps the best new trend to emerge from the ashes of the pandemic. Along Brand Boulevard in Glendale, the street is not narrowed by the expansion of restaurants onto the sidewalk and into the gutter. It’s not been turned into one of those g...

Tilapia Tacos on the Menu Tonight

After 40 years of staying away from commercial fish for environmental reasons (we’re clear-cutting the oceans and decimating our global fisheries), I have decided to greenlight two species and sources: Tilapia that is farm-raised with a feed that is 100% fishmeal- and fishoil-free, sourced other than China, and; American-caught Alaska Pollock that, despite my decades of skepticism, appears to *actually* be a well-managed and sustainable fishery. I am also happy to find that We...

Why Google's Internet Balloon Project Loon Failed

The 10 Best Biographies of American Presidents

In 2017, I embarked on a project of reading a biography of every American president. Forty-five men and over 25,000 pages later, I finally finished just before Joe Biden assumed the helm. It wasn’t an easy task, and certainly sometimes dull (especially through long parts of the 1800s), but always intriguing and unendingly fascinating.  As with all biographies, the books were full of life lessons. Though these presidents attained the highest office in the land, they also dealt with obstacles ...

New animation shows a billion years of continental drift

A new way of looking at plate tectonics offers evidence for how the world looked up to a billion years ago. By focusing on plate boundaries rather than the continents and land itself, it avoids the pitfalls of other methods. The model doesn't account for everything but is still a great step forward in our understanding of continental drift. Anyone who's ever considered why South America and Africa look like they could fit together knows about plate tectonics, the theory which explains the movem...
