    I’ve always known that food is powerful. It can bridge. It can unite. It can heal. When I share a meal with others, there’s an instant and real connection. In these moments, I’ve also come to learn just how deep food inequity runs in our state. Food inequity is one result of larger systems in our world and communities designed to benefit some at the expense of others. Systemic injustices are built into our food system and most often unfairly affect people in marginalized communities and those who don’t have easy access to grocery stores or the means to afford nourishing food. Here in Minnesota, we have one of the worst disparities in the country. We live in a place where people of color were prevented from owning homes in certain Twin Cities neighborhoods just decades ago. These rules are still affecting us today. Your race and your zip code directly impact your access to fresh, affordable food. More people of color are living below the poverty line and the average household income for people of color remains significantly less than that of white families. For many people, a single trip to the...
    WHAT would you do if your waxing lady told you she thinks you might have a health issue because you're so hairy? That's the situation that one woman found herself in - and it's not even the most inappropriate thing the salon worker said to her. 3A woman took to TikTok to reveal the shockingly inappropriate things her waxing lady had said to herCredit: tiktok/@big.c.energy 3One was the suggestion that she might have polycystic ovaries because she's so hairyCredit: tiktok/@big.c.energy "Things my wax lady has said to me," the woman wrote over a video on TikTok. She kicked off with "you’re really hairy. You might have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)". She was also told that she was "dirty" for keeping her armpit hair. But when it came to waxing the hair on her toe, the waxing lady went completely quiet.

    Scott Culbertson is conflicted. Not to mention frustrated. And sad. And disappointed. And, frankly, just fed up. Angelenos, I suspect many of you can relate. For almost two years, the executive director of the Friends of Ballona Wetlands has watched with dismay as an encampment of broken down RVs and buses has become a permanent fixture along Jefferson Boulevard, just west of Lincoln Boulevard in Playa del Rey. When I spoke to Culbertson over the summer, he told me how the few dozen occupants had been making frequent incursions into the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve and adjacent freshwater marsh, leaving mounds of trash and causing brushfires. Not a whole lot has changed since then. If anything, it has gotten worse, both in terms of the environmental damage and the equally obvious, but far less measurable — and far more important — human suffering. I live nearby and see it every day. Culbertson had pinned his hopes on promises by the city to do regular cleanups of the encampment. And for the most part, the city has followed through. It...
    THE coronavirus lockdowns changed many of our relationships with alcohol, some of which we have continued now that restrictions have ended. But if your drinking has slowly crept up then you may have entered a 'grey area' when it comes to boozing. 1If you're struggling with your drink then you might be loitering in a 'grey area' when it comes to boozeCredit: Getty Grey area drinking isn't a medical term but it's one experts in the field have long used for those who have questioned their relationship with booze. The NHS says that men and women should be having no more than 14 units of alcohol a week. To put that into perspective, one unit is a small glass of wine, while a pint of low strength beer is two units. It was previously revealed that Brits had boozed their way through the Covid pandemic and sales of boozed soared by 55 per cent when people were forced to stay indoors. Data also revealed that deaths due to booze soared 20 per cent during the pandemic. For most people, drinking...
    The New York Giants might have a big problem at left guard Alexander Wilson September 2, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit In just the first week of training camp, the expected starting offensive guard for the New York Giants, Shane Lemieux, suffered a knee injury that has kept him out ever since. Slowly rehabilitating and working his way back from the injury, Lemieux is still projected to be the Week 1 starter against the Denver Broncos. However, the knee issue he is facing is far more significant than originally reported. Head coach Joe Judge indicated that Lemieux’s injury wasn’t notable and that the team had dodged a bullet. Nonetheless, it was discovered that Lemieux was dealing with a partially torn patellar tendon, which doesn’t bode well for the second-year player who struggled considerably during his rookie season. Shane is still committed to starting the regular season and fighting through the injury, despite the pain and the potential for a complete tendon tear. Shane Lemieux having...
    The Chicago Bears Might Have a Cornerback Problem Maxx Smith June 29, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The Chicago Bears front office had a fantastic offseason. From high praise at the draft to some solid free agency signings, there seemed to be little holes in Ryan Pace’s plan to ensure the survival of his tenure as general manager. However, as we rapidly approach the regular season and begin to look at the rearview mirror, hindsight begins to kick in. The Bears brought in talent to fill several gaps on the roster yet didn’t fill the most glaring hole: the vacuum left by Pro Bowl cornerback Kyle Fuller’s departure. For all the great work the Bears did in the 2021 offseason, one has to wonder, what is the front office thinking in their handling of the cornerback position? Fuller’s departure from the Bears had to happen. Unfortunately, Pace had little to offer Fuller to keep him in Chicago as an extension would cause a $20M cap hit...
    MILLIONS of Americans have received their third $1,400 stimulus check.  But many Covid-hit households have had problems with receiving their relief payments — and here we explain what they should do. Read our stimulus checks live blog for the latest updates on Covid-19 relief... 1Another 2.3million stimulus checks were sent out last weekCredit: Getty The IRS does not want you to call if you encounter a problem with the delivery or amount of your stimulus check because they might be overwhelmed with calls and you might be put on hold for a long time. But there are ways on how to report problems with the $1,400 handout. This includes checks that never arrived (try filing a payment trace) or perhaps direct deposit payments that went to the wrong account and other issues. How to find out the status of your stimulus check Since the IRS isn't taking phone calls on stimulus payments, your best bet is with the IRS Get My Payment tool.  You can use this tool to find out when the check t is scheduled to be sent...
    The New York Yankees might have a problem brewing in the batting order By: Alexander Wilson February 6, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditAt first glance, the New York Yankees have a fantastic 2021 roster, even if the pitching is a bit suspect. General manager Brian Cashman has a lot riding on players returning from injury, notably Corey Kluber and Jameson Taillon. However, if they’re able to return without any hiccups, the Yankees will have a solid starting rotation that should be improved compared to 2020. If you look hard enough at any position, though, you would likely find a weakness. Ranging from injuries to inconsistencies in the field, the Yankees will have to supplement players as always. They could have one problem in the batting order as a whole, and after looking at it, you might figure out why. Projected New York Yankees batting order: DJ LeMahieu, 2B Aaron Judge, RF Aaron Hicks, CF Giancarlo Stanton, DH Luke Voit, 1B Gleyber Torres, SS Gio Urshela, 3B Gary Sánchez, C Clint Frazier, LF The Yankees...
    While Republicans, including Donald Trump, have falsely claimed that the Green New Deal would require eliminating raising cattle for meat, the truth is there is no such requirement in the proposed legislation, or in Joe Biden’s proposed environmental policy. Still, there’s no doubt that the over 1 billion domestic cows on planet Earth are a genuine monster when it comes to resources. Raising all that meat-on-the-hoof requires enormous tracts of land as well as tremendous amounts of water. In the United States alone, the grain that goes to cattle each year could potentially feed the entire population of the country more than three times over. Then there’s the methane. It may seem embarrassing, disgusting, or simply ridiculous, but as ruminant animals whose multiple stomachs use bacteria to help break down tough plant material, cows … fart. A lot. A single cow can put out over 200 pounds of methane in a year and as a whole, domestic cattle account for more than a third of all methane emissions from human activity. And yes, this counts as human activity, even when it’s being propelled out the backside...
    Call of Duty games shouldn’t be expected to be perfect products at launch, even if they go through public alpha and beta testing. Tweaking the balance of weapons, fortifying servers and addressing visual glitches is a process that developers often take months to iron out post-release. Maybe it doesn’t need to be that way, but it’s the reality of the business that users have become used to. So, it’s not a surprise that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has encountered several major problems in its first week on the market. Activision servers have struggled to handle a massive influx of players, and in-game bugs have been commonplace. One shortcoming people have been universally vocal about following Friday’s launch is the peculiar lack of lighting on many Black Ops Cold War maps, which has made opponents sitting in dark corners almost invisible. Call of Duty has long grappled with campers and doesn’t need another component to its game catering to those players. The lack of visibility is something critics hope will be addressed in an upcoming patch. MORE: What...
    COVID-19 vaccines may not arrive quite as soon as people hoped. An October surprise didn’t happen, there was no vaccine by Election Day, and even Thanksgiving might be pushing it. Front-runner Pfizer Inc.’s oft-repeated suggestion that it might have vaccine data by Halloween was wrong, and Anthony Fauci now suggests an immunization might not be available on even a limited basis until January. Efforts to speed results and availability have been historic, but they have limits. Specifically, quick vaccine hopes have a math problem. To clear a high statistical bar and prove effective enough to get emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration, early candidates would have to be both very protective and quite lucky. That won’t be easy. Here’s how it works. In these COVID-19 clinical trials, some participants get a vaccine, some get a placebo, and researchers measure how many get sick in each group. They examine the data at several points in the trial to see if the vaccinated participants have a lower rate of illness. In order to gain FDA authorization for use against the coronavirus, a vaccine needs to show firm evidence...
    Tax records indicate Tommy Tuberville's foundation to aid veterans is keeping most of the money it receives. According to reporting by the Associated Press and the New York Times, the foundation run by Alabama Republican Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville, which claims to be raising money to support U.S. military veterans, allegedly distributed only $5,000 of the $40,000 it raised. Tuberville's opponent in the Senate race, incumbent Democratic Sen. Doug Jones, responded quickly to the reports, saying: "Maybe the veterans got short-changed because Tommy wanted to run for governor or the Senate. This is not public service. He is not a public servant. This is just someone that's doing this for his own benefit. He's the swamp that’s taking care of it itself." Most polls show Tuberville leading Jones by double digits in the reliably red state, in which Donald Trump is currently polling ahead of Joe Biden in the presidential race by almost 18 points.
    The number of new coronavirus cases and hospitalizations has increased in Texas and several states in the South and West, leading governors to eye more aggressive responses. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Monday that increased rates in hospitalizations and record daily highs of new coronavirus cases show that “COVID-19 is now spreading at an unacceptable rate in Texas, and it must be corralled.” He pleaded with Texans to wear masks but stopped short of mandating mask-wearing, as California Gov. Gavin Newsom did last week. If numbers of cases and hospitalizations double next month, he said, “That would mean that we are in an urgent situation where tougher actions will be required to make sure that we do contain the spread of COVID-19.” Abbott did not say what kinds of restrictions were under consideration, but said, “Closing down Texas again will always be the last option.” The rate of new positive tests in Texas has surpassed 10%, according to research published by COVID Exit Strategy. Cases and hospitalizations have spiked in recent weeks, primarily in...
