    In a flurry of candy wrappers and sugar-crazed munchkins, Halloween is over … which means Thanksgiving is just around the corner. And you need a plan. You may be thinking, “I know what I’m doing,” pushing away flashbacks of pre-pandemic panic over last-minute pie crust disasters and bone-dry turkey. (Oh, the things we used to fret over.) Still, we’re entertaining again and want everything to taste delicious and run smoothly for the folks driving up or flying in. Avoid the needless stress by having a to-do list with plan-ahead strategies week by week and eventually, by day. That way you’ll be chowing down with your guests in peace and giving thanks for the things that matter — lumpless mashed potatoes included. THREE WEEKS BEFORE Figure out your guest list — including who’s bringing what — and plan your menu. You’ll want to serve a signature cocktail or versatile wine, plus a non-alcoholic drink option, an appetizer or two, two to three sides, a few desserts and, of course, your glorious main dish — be it turkey, ham or vegetarian pasta....
    SHARKS are getting bigger and fatter than ever before as years of work to protect endangered species have helped the beasts bulk up, experts have warned. With their habitats and food sources protected, the mighty sea creatures can feed and breed more easily, turning the oceans into a "paradise" for the beasts. 3One of the species which has seen the biggest boom in size is tiger sharksCredit: mediadrumimages/@joshmunoz 3A Great White stick prowling the waters near The Neptune Islands, South AustraliaCredit: Barcroft Media 3Some shark species are now thought to be joining forces to hunt in packsCredit: Getty And it's thought some shark species are now joining forces to hunt in packs - rather than being in competition with each other. One of the species which has seen the biggest boom in size is tiger sharks. The biggest tiger sharks are typically 12ft-long - but marine biologist Kori Burkhardt discovered a whopper in the waters of French Polynesia measuring a huge 16ft. The beast was spotted in an area where sharks have had protection since 2006. ...
    Share this: On March 17, the world celebrates the feast day of St. Patrick, a zealous British bishop of the fifth century who became famous for spreading Christianity in Ireland. Patrick is Ireland’s main patron saint. But as a medieval historian, I suggest that we also pause to remember another of Ireland’s patron saints, the nurturing, compassionate St. Brigid. This year, following a three-year campaign by a feminist organization, herstory.ie, the Irish government finally acknowledged Brigid’s importance by declaring a new national holiday on her feast day of Feb. 1. Until now, Ireland counted her among their official three patrons, along with St. Patrick and St. Columcille, or Columba, but gave workers a day off only on St. Patrick’s Day.
    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Parishioners at a church in Mt. Lebanon celebrated the last day before the Lenten feast with pancakes for dinner. At St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, kids were the cooks for Tuesday night’s meal. Reverend Noah Evans tells KDKA it’s traditional to have pancakes on Fat Tuesday, because in the past, that’s how people used up all the fat in their stores before the long Lenten fast. The youth of the parish were hard at work making the pancakes on Tuesday night. (Photo Credit: KDKA) “They use this as a fundraiser for their summer mission trip, preparing the pancakes and mixing the pancakes batter for the incredible feast this year,” Reverend Evans said. This year, the church welcomed parishioners back to have their feast in person — or take it home.
    New York (CNN Business)This Thanksgiving weekend is offering a box office feast with two genres that have been lacking on the menu so far this year: family movies and non-franchise films aimed at adults.Disney's "Encanto," an animated film featuring music written by "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, is expected to have a $35 million domestic opening over the five-day holiday — enough to win the weekend. As for MGM's "House of Gucci," a true crime film starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, that film could slide into the No. 2 spot. In order for theaters to truly recover, family films and films that aren't reboots, prequels or sequels are important to the box office. Both films this weekend are exclusive to theaters and could give a much needed box office jolt to theaters."To truly recover — to find their cinematic pulse — these genres will not only have to debut with better-than-expected numbers, but continue to sustain through the long holiday corridor," Jeff Bock, senior analyst at entertainment research firm Exhibitor Relations, told CNN Business. "For cinemas to truly rally, Hollywood...
    FARRAH Abraham is being slammed after seemingly expressing pride in her reckless driving on the way to her Thanksgiving dinner. The former Teen Mom shared a video to her Instagram stories of her looking and talking directly into her phone's camera, paying little attention to the road around her. 5Farrah took her eyes off the road to address the cameraCredit: Instagram 5The Teen Mom teased how fast she was drivingCredit: Instagram And in the video, she admits to driving erratically and speeding. "Just going over ever speed bump like nothing," Farrah smirks. "It's turkey time. I can't be late for Thanksgiving, y'all." The 30-year-old blond ruffled her hair and gave a little giggle at her revelation, before turning off the camera. This is just the latest time Farrah has come under fire from fans. In a recent TikTok video, Farrah was seen twerking with her pre-teen, as mother and daughter both shook their butts at the camera in her kitchen.

    Houston (CNN)Volunteers are converging on the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, overcoming supply chain challenges to serve tens of thousands of people who find themselves in need of a meal on Thanksgiving. Organizers expect to serve between 25,000 and 30,000 families during Thursday's 43rd annual "Super Feast," they told CNN. About 635,000 pounds of food is being cooked to be served as a hot meal. About 3,200 turkeys have been cooked for the feast, and another 15,000 are being distributed at a separate drive-up location outside the convention center. US Food Banks survive coronavirus demand to face new problems: supply chain disruption and rising food pricesIt's been a hard year for many here in this part of Texas, Stephanie Lewis, regional director of Super Feast organizer City Wide Club of America, told CNN. The Covid-19 pandemic is perhaps the chief culprit, having claimed countless lives and livelihoods, Lewis said. But the devastating arctic freeze that hit Texas earlier this year, along with soaring gas and food prices, has left families with impossible choices. "Some people have to make...

    Knicks: Two versions of Kemba Walker result in feast or famine Alexander Wilson September 12, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Knicks are entrusting the point guard position with veterans Derrick Rose and Kemba Walker for the 2021-22 season and beyond. After rolling with Elfred Payton as the primary starter last year, it was imperative they upgraded this off-season, spending a good portion of their salary space on the two players. Walker, however, signed a two-year, $17.9 million deal, which is a fantastic contract from the team’s perspective. They land a potential All-Star caliber player at minimum cost who could be the difference between winning and losing in the postseason. Even Boston Celtics general manager Brad Stevens admitted it was difficult to trade Walker given his qualities, but it made sense for the team to clear salary space and move forward. In an appearance on WEEI’s Ordway, Merloni and Fauria in support of the Jimmy Fund, Brad Stevens opened up about the difficulty of...
    NORTH LAWNDALE — A food and arts festival coming to the West Side is raising awareness about many Chicagoans’ lack of access to healthy, affordable food. FEAST Festival is an annual food giveaway and creative market organized by AMFM, a Chicago art, music and fashion platform, in partnership with the Park District. Guests can get pre-packaged meals, as well as fresh fruits and veggies provided by Imperfect Produce. The festival is 1-4 p.m. Sept 11-12 at Homan Square Park, 3559 W. Arthington St. Organizers want people to think critically about their food and discuss who has food, who doesn’t and how people can help each other meet their basic needs, AMFM founder Ciera McKissick said. “I know that this festival is only a small solution and only one time a year,” McKissick said. “There are people in need the other 364 days of the year, as well. The idea is to spark a conversation and bring others on this journey.” The festival will feature an outdoor exhibit called Food for Thought that explores the intersection between race and food scarcity....

    By Douglas Busvine BERLIN (Reuters) - With Europe in coronavirus lockdown, venture capital fund manager Fergal Mullen told his investors in April he would find it hard to back a startup without first meeting its founders. A couple of months later, the Geneva-based co-founder and partner of Highland Europe broke his own promise and invested in Meditopia, a mindfulness app with teams in Berlin and Istanbul that he got to know over some 40 calls on video app Zoom. "I had to eat my hat," said Mullen, looking back on a year of deal making that, after a sudden stop in the spring, came back to life in late summer and has gathered pace since. Highland Europe has just raised 700 million euros ($850 million) for a fourth fund, its largest, and is preparing for the sale or flotation of around 10 of its portfolio companies next year. And, according to interviews with more than half a dozen investors, the wider recovery in European tech investment activity looks likely to extend into 2021 as venture-backed startups achieve scale. Proceeds raised...
    LA MARQUE, Texas (AP) – Police in a Houston suburb released body camera footage Monday of an officer fatally shooting a man in the back, though key moments of the nighttime encounter were missing or obscured. The footage released by the La Marque Police Department does not include audio for the first 30 seconds, including the moment that Officer Jose Santos shot 22-year-old Joshua Feast. It shows Feast running from Santos, who has his weapon extended, and shows Feast lying on the ground, wounded, while Santos yells “Show me your hands” three times. The video doesn’t show a muzzle flash from Santos’ gun, but an independent autopsy released last week by an attorney for Feast’s family, Ben Crump, found that Feast died from a gunshot wound to the back. “This footage portrays one thing: A defenseless man was shot in the back when he had not disobeyed a single lawful command and posed no threat to the officer,” Crump said in a statement Monday. Police said in a news release that officers’ body cameras buffer for the first 30 seconds...

    Americans are no stranger to adversity and this year presented a new and difficult challenge with a sinister virus. But now more than ever we must cherish the good times and give thanks to those who selflessly serve us during our times of trouble. This Thanksgiving will be a lot different for many Americans, as some of us have not seen our families in a long time out of a noble desire to protect the ones we love. But as we sit around the dinner table and break bread, let us say an extra prayer for the folks who provided us with this food — the essential workers who toil in the fields and the store workers who put food on the shelves so that we may eat. This is what Americans do when times are tough — we adapt and we overcome. The same thing is happening with truck drivers, food processors, grocery store workers, and others in the food supply chain. They know their fellow Americans depend on them. Store shelves across the nation are getting stocked and...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – In years past, the Camillus House annual Thanksgiving Day feast for the shelter’s clients and area homeless had all the trimmings of a block party. Volunteer servers made it a part their Thanksgiving Day ritual, serving the less fortunate before heading home for family events. However, both are going to be much different this year because of COVID. “This is an annual tradition for us. We have done it for 60 years. This year we wanted to make sure we continued with that tradition,” said Camillus House CEO Hilda Fernandez. “We have had to reduce the number of chairs and tables because of COVID. This is a time when they are eating without masks. We have to be cautious.” In the past, volunteers served nearly 500 meals inside the compound’s dining hall. But this year there’s no room for the street homeless who are not part of the Camillus House community. “We didn’t want to now do something for the street homeless. So we have an empty lot at the corner that belongs to us. We are...
    By American Heart Association News, HealthDay Reporter (HealthDay) THURSDAY, Nov. 19, 2020 (American Heart Association News) -- The football teams taking the field on Thanksgiving will bring shrewd strategies and meticulous game plans to make sure they finish the day healthy and successful. As we tackle one of the year's biggest feasts, should we do the same? On the one hand, it's just one day. "If you spend the majority of your time eating well and exercising, my general opinion on Thanksgiving is give yourself a break," said Krista Varady, professor of nutrition at the University of Illinois, Chicago. "Don't be crazy, but everybody deserves a day off." On the other hand, Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday eating season, which can have significant ramifications on body weight – and health – for the entire year. "Between Thanksgiving and January 1, it's not uncommon to see a 10-pound weight gain if an individual is not careful," said registered dietitian Linda Van Horn, a professor of preventive medicine at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.

    We all have too much on our plate right now, so why not let someone else set the table this Thanksgiving? In the year marked by ordering subscription meal kits and online grocery deliveries to make life survivable from the confines of your own home, turkey day should be no different. In times past (was it really only a year ago?) going to the grocery store in the days before the holiday was already panic-inducing, being met with barren shelves and packed aisles. This November, however, many want to avoid the crowd and hassle and are looking to the abundance of at-home options that have become more and more popular. “I’m addicted to the convenience, learning new techniques and using ingredients I’ve never tried before. Meal planning is a breeze,” said Tamela Lively, 44, of Los Angeles, who’s been a kit subscriber for a few years now and is adding a Thanksgiving dinner to her order for the first time this holiday season. “[I’m] very grateful for meal kits this year, especially very early on in the pandemic when some...

    For the turkey industry, this Thanksgiving is a guessing game. Millions of Americans are expected to have scaled-down celebrations amid the pandemic, heeding official warnings against travel and large indoor gatherings. That leaves anxious turkey farmers and grocers scrambling to predict what people will want on their holiday tables. Kroger — the nation’s largest grocery chain — said its research shows 43% of shoppers plan to celebrate Thanksgiving only with those in their immediate household. It has purchased more turkeys than usual — in all sizes — but it’s also predicting an increase in demand for alternatives, including ham, pork roast and seafood. Kroger also expects to see more demand for plant-based meats, like a vegan roast stuffed with mushrooms and squash. Walmart says it will still carry plenty of whole turkeys, but it will also have 30% more turkey breasts in its stores to accommodate shoppers who don’t want to cook a whole bird. It’s not always easy to pivot. Angela Wilson, the owner of Avedano’s Holly Park Market in San Francisco, ordered turkeys last year for...

It’s not always easy to pivot. Angela Wilson, the owner of Avedano’s Holly Park Market in San Francisco, ordered...
    The Seahawks and Cardinals just put on a primetime show for the ages. No need to worry, though, if you missed Sunday’s night’s epic shootout featuring 71 points and nearly 1,100 yards of offense. You’re liable to see an encore performance when the 49ers invade CenturyLink Field in Seattle this Sunday. Jimmy Garoppolo doesn’t have to be Kyler Murray and Brandon Aiyuk needn’t resemble DeAndre Hopkins for the 49ers to be just like the Cardinals and roll up big numbers against Seattle. The Seahawks defense, for those who haven’t noticed, are a very forgiving group these days. When Arizona piled up 519 yards — including 360 through the air by Murray — in its thrilling 37-34 overtime victory it was only following the lead of Seattle’s first five opponents. They’ve all combined to leave the Seahawks ranked 26th in DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average), 23rd in points allowed (28.7) and last in the league with 368.7 passing yards allowed per game. Garoppolo could also be very comfortable in the pocket if Seattle’s season-long trend of...
    BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (CBS4) – While Munich’s iconic Oktoberfest has been canceled, the town of Breckenridge has found a way to celebrate. (credit: CBS) “Oktoberfest in Breckenridge is known as one of the largest street parties in the Rocky Mountains. This year obviously we had to change things with larger group gatherings being limited so we took the celebration specifically to the restaurants,” said Austyn Dineen, director of communications for the Breckenridge Tourism Office.  The traditional Oktoberfest is postponed until 2021, but Friday kicked off, what the town of Breckenridge has dubbed. October-FEAST. More than 10 restaurants have partnered with the town to create multi-course themed meals, over two back-to-back weekends (this past weekend and Oct. 2-4). It’s a celebration that Dineen says wouldn’t be complete without a stein. (credit: CBS) “When we started to really figure out what Oktoberfest would look like in the coronavirus pandemic, the stein was the big thing we couldn’t miss. We hear people who have collected steins since day one and they would never miss a piece for their collection,” she said. Christy and Jim Swoll haven’t missed a year and on Friday...
    Cochon 555, the annual culinary event that celebrates heritage pork with nose-to-tail cookoffs in cities around the U.S., is going virtual this year. From Oct. 7-9, three San Francisco chefs — Lorenzo Camaal of Merkado, Kim Alter of Nightbird and Dirk Tolsa of Epic Steak — will turn their porky expertise into interactive, cook-along dinners via Zoom. Think dishes like braised pork shank, roast pig with confit, house-made smoked cocktail sausages, warm squash salad with bacon-fat vinaigrette and chorizo-stuffed peppers. “Regretfully, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt our lives and community, we recognized we could not produce our event tour as we had hoped,” event CEO Brett Friedman said in announcing the lineup. “As a result, we decided to create a carryout program with an online component as a creative alternative for our fan base while supporting local restaurateurs, and raising awareness for heritage breed pigs.” That means, yes, virtual sessions but real food. Pork lovers will receive their choice of multi-course dinners — one cook-along-with-the-chef dish; the others will be prepared for you — plus wine and a...
    For Bay Area music lovers, this is the time of year to make plans for summer festivals. In accordance with this year’s Covid restrictions, the usual formats have been abandoned. But the South Bay’s Music@Menlo and Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music are going forward, and both have announced attractive virtual seasons. Music@Menlo, the music festival and institute founded and directed by cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han, has been presenting top artists and emerging talent in a congenial atmosphere since 2003. The festival’s planned 2020 installment, titled “Haydn Connections,” has been postponed to 2021. In its place, Music@Menlo is taking the season into the digital domain with a new title and a new approach. “Intermezzo,” running July 17-August 8, is its aptly named moniker. Finckel and Wu Han say this year is a true intermezzo — the Italian term for music played between larger parts of a performance — and the idea is to create a virtual bridge between past seasons and what they hope will be next year’s full return. As such, “Intermezzo” will include live-streamed performances, new...
