    From aged blues to processed American slices, cheese comes in a huge range of forms. While cheesemakers spend years crafting their cheeses, the process still leaves a lot to chance, with some batches ripening for months, or even years, before a problem is discovered.  Now, scientists have developed what they're describing as a 'pregnancy test for cheese', which allows cheesemakers to test the quality of their produce earlier and more precisely.  The team hopes the test could give manufacturers a better chance to react to issues with the ripening process, without wasting any produce. Scientists have developed what they're describing as a 'pregnancy test for cheese', which allows cheesemakers to test the quality of their produce earlier and more precisely (stock image) HOW DOES THE TEST WORK?To develop the test, the team looked at different commercial cheddar cheeses, and applied a type of biological anlaysis known as multi-omics.  Dr...
    After weeks of what President Joe Biden might dub “mistakes in the communication” on where the White House stands on one of the most critical provisions in the government’s guidelines for reopening public schools, the administration is finally in sync with scientific experts on vaccinations for teachers. But while most teachers’ unions and rank-and-file educators support the guidelines, some teachers say that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations on vaccinations don’t always account for conditions on the ground—and that agreement on the theory doesn’t mean much if there’s no money to put that theory into practice. “If you want to do the CDC recommendations around physical distancing, you probably need to hire more educators, and you probably need to pay for doubling the amount of school buses, you might need to double the number of bus drivers,” said Andrew Crook, national press secretary for the American Federation of...
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.Tom Williams | CQ-Roll Call, Inc. | Getty Images Sen. Elizabeth Warren lambasted the Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday, blaming the regulator and its failure to act for a chaotic dayslong blitz of market speculation. "We need an SEC that has clear rules about market manipulation and then has the backbone to get in and enforce those rules," Warren said. "To have a healthy stock market, you've got to have a cop on the beat." "That should be the SEC," she added. "They need to step up and do their job." The SEC did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment. The senator from Massachusetts joined CNBC after wild stock trades forced popular trading app Robinhood to restrict access to the high-flying stocks at the center of the controversy. Warren, a longtime critic of Wall Street, spoke to CNBC's "Closing Bell" as individual traders took...

    STRESSED parents often say they can’t hear themselves think – but Sara Clarke really did lose sound during the first lockdown. The mum of two was so burned out she could see her children’s mouths moving as they spoke but not pick up the words. 7Too many of us are suffering from burnout, which usually results from chronic workplace stressCredit: Getty Ravaged by pandemic anxiety, her body had begun to shut down. Sara, 29, a CrossFit gym manager, says: “One day, after weeks of trying to do it all, my mind went blank and I couldn’t hear my children speaking, even though I could see their mouths moving. “For weeks I felt as though I was floating around, going through the motions without being able to make any decisions. “I’d burst into tears and it got to the point where I was shaking constantly and felt so anxious.” 7If you...

    In 2019, a Black social worker was in her home when Chicago police burst through the door and handcuffed her while she was naked in a raid meant for another apartment in her complex. Now, Anjanette Young is calling for justice after Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot's law department tried to prevent CBS Chicago from airing the footage nearly two years later.  It is the job of police "to serve and protect," Young said Wednesday during a news conference. "Well, they didn't do that for me. They didn't care about me. So, yes, I would ask for accountability if you ask me what do I want from this." Video of the incident shows Young telling officers at least 43 times they had the wrong apartment. But police continued to search Young's house while she was exposed, CBS Chicago reported. While an officer did wrap a short coat around Young, her front remained...
    When Apple released iOS 14.2 last month, it didn’t mention that FaceTime calls would now be in 1080p for older iPhones. As MacMagazine notes, Apple has updated the product comparison pages of the iPhones 8, X, XR, XS, SE, and 11 (including the Max and Pro versions) to show that they now support FaceTime at 1080p over Wi-Fi, as opposed to before when they only supported 720p. Calls made over cellular will still be at the lower resolution, but if you’re FaceTiming over Wi-Fi you may notice increased clarity after the update. That is, unless both callers had the iPhone 12, which has had 1080p FaceTime calls from the start (including over cellular if you’re on 5G). My sister has an iPhone 8 with the update, so I called her up on FaceTime. I had her take a screenshot when we were calling over Wi-Fi, then had her...

    TATTOOS are forever... which is probably why you should give it some thought before taking to your body with ink. But while some people go for a meaningful design or phrase, there are some popular requests tattoo artists are sick of seeing, and beg people to stop getting - so do you have one of these tattoos? 6Tattoo artists have revealed the designs they hate mostCredit: Getty Images - Getty You name it Tom Abbott, Founder of IYNK, told Fabulous that names are a massive no-no, as so often people end up full of regret. He said: "Tattoos of people’s names (especially old lovers’) are common and always have the potential to make people wince. Although we often see creative and even genius attempts of covering these up." Similarly, many tattoo artists think parents should avoid getting their kids named inked on them because, while the sentiment...
    CHICAGO — One by one, aldermen unmuted their Zoom microphones Wednesday and, over the course of a seven-hour meeting, blasted the city’s planning commissioner for not seeking their input on developments. Mayor Lori Lightfoot plucked Commissioner Maurice Cox from Detroit in 2019 to lead Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development, which oversees development in the city, including the mayor’s signature INVEST South/West initiative. But a year into his reign as planning chief, Cox and his staff were repeatedly criticized for not communicating with aldermanic offices, including from key Lightfoot allies. Ald. Chris Taliaferro (29th), Lightfoot’s pick to head the Public Safety Committee, graded Cox’s department with a “resounding D or F.” “I’ve reached out multiple times to you and I don’t get a call back. I have a terrible relationship with your staff,” Taliaferro said. “I feel your staff make my community aware of proposed projects in my ward...
    By JOHN FLESHER | The Associated Press Nearly two years ago, President Donald Trump stood amid the smoky ruins of Paradise, California, where he blamed the deadliest wildfire in the state’s history on poor forest management. “You’ve got to take care of the floors, you know? The floors of the forest, very important,” the president said. He ordered the U.S. Forest Service and the Department of Interior to make federal lands less susceptible to catastrophic wildfires with measures such as removing dead trees, underbrush and other potentially flammable materials. But while Trump has accused California and Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom of doing a “terrible job” of forest protection, his own agencies fell short of his goals for federal lands in 2019. They treated a combined 6,736 square miles (17,446 square kilometers) — just over half of the 13,203 square miles (34,196 square kilometers) the president sought, according to government data....
    Philadelphia's District Attorney has warned 'lawless, power-hungry despot' Donald Trump not to send his 'goon squads' or the Proud Boys to the city to watch the polls.  Larry Krasner threatened the president that if he sent any 'uncertified poll watchers' to the birthplace of American democracy: 'I've got something for you.'  It comes after the Trump administration last month lost a legal bid to force the city to allow its representatives to monitor satellite election offices used for registering voters and processing mail-in ballots. 'The Trump Administration's efforts to suppress votes amid a global pandemic fueled by their disregard for human life will not be tolerated in the birthplace of American democracy.' Krasner said in a statement.  Larry Krasner (left) threatened the president that if he sent any 'uncertified poll watchers' to the birthplace of American democracy: 'I've got something for you' A polling booth during early voting in...
    Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner referred to President Donald Trump as a lawless, power-hungry despot and appeared to threaten him, issuing a statement that said if he sent uncertified poll watchers to the city, I’ve got something for you. Keep your Proud Boys, goon squads, and uncertified poll watchers out of our city, Mr. President. Break the law here, and I’ve got something for you, Krasner said in a statement issued by his office. Krasner, a Democrat, issued his remarks after Trump decried a second night of looting and rioting in Philadelphia, requiring another evening curfew amid unrest over the police shooting death of a Black man who refused orders to surrender a knife. The Pennsylvania National Guard had been ordered into Philadelphia to help quell the rioting. Trump blamed Democratic rival Joe Biden for encouraging and supporting the rioters. Krasner called Trump the greatest danger to public health and safety...
    Philadelphia’s district attorney on Wednesday threatened President Donald Trump if he sent “uncertified” poll watchers to the city, telling him in a statement, “I’ve got something for you” if any attempts are made to interfere with Election Day activities. In a fiery statement posted on his website, District Attorney Larry Krasner likened Trump to a “lawless, power-hungry despot,” and vowed that Philadelphians “will not be cowed.” Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner reacts while being mentioned by Danielle Outlaw at a press conference announcing her as the new Police Commissioner in Philadelphia.

    A family of seven from Malden, Washington, has suffered immensely over the past few weeks as first their home was destroyed by a wildfire — and then they all contracted the coronavirus. First, the wildfireMatthew and Jessica Graham, along with their five children, lost their home and everything in it when a wildfire tore through their small town over Labor Day weekend, KREM-TV reported. The Grahams were in Idaho visiting Jessica's parents when they received word that a fire had sparked back home. They were notified by a friend that the town library and post office had caught fire and their house was directly in the wildfire's path. Shortly after, they received the devastating news that their house had been consumed and that nothing was left except, thankfully, the dog and the chickens. "[The friend] told us that it was a total loss," Matthew said. "It just felt like a...
    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Six months ago, COVID-19 forced the restaurant industry to change its very nature. The focus for now is outdoor dining and limited capacity; protective gear for staff and customers; take out or delivery and a number of new, ever-changing safety guidelines."I think some businesses are having a little bit of trouble adjusting, which is the reason why we go out there to the public and also to the businesses to help them deal with the guidelines," said Leticia Gonzalez, LA County Environmental Health Specialist.The need for such a focus on restaurants can be seen in a June study by JP Morgan Chase that showed the level of spending in restaurants over three weeks was the strongest predictor of the rise in new virus cases over the following three weeks. Knowing the impact on dine-in restaurants, Cary Earle of Earle's on Crenshaw moved his tables and chairs...

    The world's top cybersecurity experts worry about how to protect election systems from hackers. But one thing they're not concerned about is mail-in ballots. Mail-in and absentee voting systems are resilient and secure because they generate paper trails that can be audited, said Christopher Krebs, director of the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).  Mail-in and in-person voting both use similar methods to count votes, but not all electronic voting booths generate a paper back-up for each vote. Each state is responsible for its own election process, said Krebs, which makes it hard for hackers to meddle with votes on a national level. While manual paper vote-counting can be time-consuming, even if the tabulation process goes awry in some areas, paper ballots help auditors verify accurate results.  "If you're able to detect any sort of anomaly or something seems out of the ordinary, you want...
    CNN anchor John Berman repeatedly pressed Trump campaign director of communications Tim Murtaugh on Tuesday night over President Donald Trump’s conspiracy theory about a plane full of uniformed antifa “thugs” flying to Washington to “do big damage” at the Republican National Convention. Finally tired of Murtaugh’s attempts to pivot and deflect, Berman told the Trump spokesman, “You’ve got no proof!” During a Monday night Fox News interview, the president spun a fantastical tale about a flight that was full of armed leftist activists, claiming “it was almost completely loaded with thugs, wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms, with gear and this and that.” Trump claimed the matter was currently “under investigation,” adding that the plane was headed to D.C. to take the black-clad anarchists to the RNC. The president doubled down on the story Tuesday, telling reporters he would try to put them in touch with the “person” who was...
    WITH their official titles and formal names, the royal family go by many different monikers. But behind closed doors, Britain’s most famous family have a number of surprising nicknames for each other – from the sweet to the bizarre. 9Prince Harry has revealed that he calls his son 'little man'Credit: Splash News Archie Mountbatten-Windsor Prince Harry, 35, let slip that he adorably calls his one-year-old son Archie “little man”.  The Duke of Sussex hosted a Zoom call to celebrate the 125th birthday of the Rugby Football League over the weekend.  He spoke of having a garden for Archie to play in, and said: "I'm just unbelievably fortunate and grateful to have outdoor space and see my son be able to be outside, because I know so many people just haven't had that opportunity the last five months.  “Our little man is our number one priority, but then our work after...
    Mary Elizabeth Williams August 14, 2020 10:55PM (UTC) "Originally it was going to be just purely an indictment of this horrible trend in America of white male mass murderers," says "Spree" director and co-writer (with Gene McHugh) Eugene Kotlyarenko. "Then when we came upon the idea that actually there's a lot that horrible people like that share in common with influencer culture." Shot largely with GoPro and phone cameras and unfolding in a livestream format, "Spree" takes what could be a gimmicky concept and turns it into an unnervingly comic horror tale. "Stranger Things" actor Joe Keery is Kurt Kunkle, a rideshare driver and frustrated aspiring social media star who decides to start poisoning, stabbing and drilling his hapless passengers in pursuit of likes. But when he crosses paths with Jessie Adams ("SNL" veteran Sasheer Zamata) a comedian with a sharp social media game, he begins to think she may hold...

    (CNN)Perhaps it's a creamy white comfort drink that's reminiscent of childhood, or just another alternative to water, tea, soda and coffee. Whatever the reason, more and more Americans appear to be turning to cow's milk during the pandemic.

    The departure of former New York Times opinion editor and columnist Bari Weiss does not signal a silencing of moderate or conservative voices at the paper, former New York Times editor Jill Abramson said Wednesday. In an interview on "Outnumbered Overtime" with host Harris Faulkner, Abramson assured that there are diverse voices contributing to the Times. JOE CONCHA: BARI WEISS' RESIGNATION LETTER EXPOSES 'PATENTLY TOXIC' CULTURE AT NY TIMES "And before my departure, I spent an awful lot of my time as executive editor – when I would speak publicly – defending the Times from charges that it was a big supporter of the Iraq war and was carrying water for George W. Bush's administration," she said. "So, that was a ridiculous charge now. And, the idea that The New York Times is edited by a cabal of left-wing journalists is just not true at all." In her Tuesday resignation letter – which was sent to Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger on her personal website – Weiss described a "hostile work environment" where she experienced "unlawful discrimination" at the hands...
    As it gets hotter and hotter outside, I find myself reaching for more and more ice. There is nothing better than cooling off with a drink filled with perfectly square ice cubes, and on the flip side, there is nothing worse than being forced to drink water, or anything in the summer, without it. It’s almost tortuous, knowing how cool and refreshing the drink could have been. You could opt for an excellent ice maker outside of your freezer that makes perfect pellets of ice, but if you don’t want to splurge on that, I can recommend something just as good. I don’t care if your freezer ice machine is excellent, you still need these ice trays. They come in a pack of four, which might be off putting, but trust me, you’ll want all four. Each tray makes six big cubes perfect for chilling any drink. The trays are...

    Max Meyer, the University of Minnesota pitcher from Woodbury, was the No. 3 overall pick in major league baseball’s recent draft. It could be a challenge. “I remember I got drilled my first three games,” Paul Molitor said. That was while playing for Burlington (Ia.), a Milwaukee Brewers Class A affiliate in 1977. Molitor, also a former Gopher, was the No. 3 overall pick in the draft that year. His welcome to pro baseball: Pitchers throwing at him. “It was like, ‘OK big shot, let’s see how you handle this,’ ” Molitor recalled. How did he handle it? “I talked to my manager, Denis Menke, and he said he had seen that kind of thing for a long time when high draft picks come in,” Molitor said. “These other guys think maybe they got slighted in the draft, or maybe that this is a...

    Spot, Boston Dynamics’ famous robot dog, dutifully follows my every command. The machine traipses forward, then automatically scrambles over a raised bed of rocks. I make it side-step. I command it up a flight of stairs, which it tackles with ease. It meets its match when I steer it at a medicine ball, though; it takes a tumble, and for a moment lies paralyzed on its back. But with a click of a button, Spot twists and rights itself, and recommences its ramblings. Such unfailing obedience, yet I’m nowhere near Spot, which is roaming about the company’s testing grounds in Boston. I’m piloting the robot through my web browser from the comfort of my apartment in San Francisco, 3,000 miles away. With almost zero latency, I either use the robot’s front camera feed to click on bits of terrain—think of it like scooting around in Google’s Street View—or flicking...

I want to be on the water, fresh or salt, and near some “wild” areas like national or state parks, wilderness areas, etc. My retirement income will be about $3,300 a month before taxes and I’d like to keep those to a minimum.

    Sean Hannity slammed civil rights leader and MSNBC host Al Sharpton Thursday over his rhetorical sniping toward President Trump during a memorial service for George Floyd in Minneapolis. "For those that have agendas that are not about justice, this family will not let you use George as a prop," Sharpton said at one point. "They talk about making America great. Great for who and great when? We are going to make America great for everybody for the first time!"
