Three billion pizzas are sold every year in the U.S. (Source). Its versatility makes it one of the most interesting and fun foods to order. Throughout the country, you can find a variety of styles, each with their own unique flavor.Do you know the regional styles of pizza?New York Thin CrustNew York style pizza began with the opening of America’s first pizzeria, Lombardi’s, by Gennaro Lombardi in the Little Italy neighborhood of Manhattan in 1905,  New York style pizza is typically made by adding sugar and olive oil  to high-gluten bread flour, yeast, and water to create the dough, which is hand-tossed. Some people say the unique flavor and texture of the crust occurs because of the minerals that are only found in NYC’s tap water. (Source)Most importantly, New York pizza is meant to be folded over when eaten.California StyleMoving over to the West Coast, California style pizza is quite different from New York style pizza.Some will argue it’s not a “real” type of pizza, but California pizza is simply this: a thin-crust pie with fresh, creative, California-esque toppings. Its defining characteristic is what’s on top, as that’s where chefs have been free to experiment and refine the pizza pie into something healthier and more gourmet—think artichoke hearts, avocado, and goat cheese rather than pepperoni and meatballs. This concept became popular in the early 1980s thanks to a handful of restaurants—Spago, then in Hollywood; Chez Panisse in Berkeley; and, later, California Pizza Kitchen, which brought the trend national—and the chefs behind them: Wolfgang Puck, Ed LaDou  and Alice Waters. (Source).Chicago Deep Dish (and Stuffed)In the 1940s, Pizzeria Uno in Chicago developed the deep-dish pizza, which has a deep crust that lines a deep dish, similar to a large metal cake or pie pan. Though the entire pizza is quite thick, the crust itself is only of thin to medium thickness, and the pizza has a very thick large layer of toppings. Because the pizza is so thick, it requires a long baking time and, if cheese was added on top, as is usual with most pizzas, the cheese would burn. So, in a deep dish pizza, the toppings are usually assembled “upside down” with cheese, vegetables, and meats placed on top of the crust, and an uncooked tomato sauce on the top layer, to help the vegetables and meats cook all the way through in the oven.In the mid 1970s, Chicago restaurants Nancy’s Pizza and Giordano’s Pizzeria developed a variant of the deep dish pizza, known as the stuffed pizza, which is even deeper and has a larger topping density than any other type of pizza. To keep the cheese and toppings contained, a thin layer of dough is added above the tomato sauce with a hole in the crust (similar to a pie) to let steam escape, and tomato sauce is added above the top crust. (Source).Detroit StyleWith its rectangular shape, light, airy dough, and savory, browned cheese perimeter, the Detroit-style pie encourages savoring of the corner pieces, where crust real estate is most plentiful. True to its blue-collar Motor City roots, the square is an everyman of pizza, inviting eaters to feast in a come-as-you-are fashion — either with a fork and knife or by hand. (Source) UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Gov.

Hundreds in Wisconsin tell Trump: ‘Get your hate out of our state!’

first_imgMarch 29 — Protesters from across the state of Wisconsin and beyond converged in the city of Janesville on March 28 and 29 to protest Donald Trump, who had a speaking engagement there. The evening of March 28, six members of Showing Up for Racial Injustice occupied the lobby of the Holiday Inn Express in Janesville. With their arms locked together inside of PVC piping, they demanded that Donald Trump’s March 29 appearance at the adjoining conference center be canceled. The management refused and the six were arrested and charged with obstructing an officer and trespass. The following day, March 29, those opposing Trump, including members of Workers World Party from Rockford, Ill., participated in a protest and faced off with his supporters outside the hotel. Also on March 29, hundreds of people took over the streets of Milwaukee to protest the GOP debate. “Today we marched with hundreds of community members to say that Milwaukee is ‪#‎UnitedAgainstHate‬ and united against Trump and Cruz and the politicians who support their ideas ‪#‎StopTrump‬,” declared the immigrant and worker rights organization Voces de la Frontera. Voces added: “This afternoon we marched with hundreds of members of the community to say that Milwaukee is united against the hatred of Trump, Cruz and all politicians who support their ideas.” Members of numerous organizations participated in the Milwaukee protest, including the Coalition For Justice, Defeat “Right To Work” In Wisconsin, Fight For $15, the Latin American Solidarity Committee, Occupy Milwaukee, Students for a Democratic Society, Showing Up for Racial Injustice, Youth Empowered In the Struggle, Wisconsin Jobs Now and the Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement.   Protests against Trump are also planned in the cities of Green Bay and Appleton on March 30 and in Wausau on April 2.

FIA pledges 1m euros to back diversity, drivers split on taking knee

first_img“We must promote diversity in motorsport and that is why we decided to give one million euros in contribution to the new dedicated foundation created by F1.”Carey said: “We are delighted the FIA has made this very generous donation of one million euros to the foundation we announced last month. It is a major step towards our goal to support key educational and employment opportunities for under-represented groups.”Both F1 and the FIA are committed to increasing diversity and inclusion across our sport.”The announcement came amid reports claiming that up to five drivers are reluctant to ‘take a knee’ in support of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement on the grid on Sunday.The campaign gained global momentum following the death of black American George Floyd under the knee of a police officer in Minneapolis.Six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton has been an outspoken supporter of the movement and launched last month his own Hamilton Commission to identify causes of motorsport’s lack of diversity.Hamilton is the sport’s only black race winner and champion and on Saturday revealed he had addressed his fellow drivers at a meeting on Friday.Hamilton said he told his rivals that “silence” on the issue of racism “is generally complicit”.The Grand Prix Drivers’ Association (GPDA) said Saturday that they were united against racism and the drivers had agreed to wear “End Racism” t-shirts on the grid.FIA chief Todt told reporters at Spielberg, however, that sport should be wary of allowing itself to be used by political influences.”Sometimes there is a tendency to use it as a weapon and we have to be very careful of that, but I admire people who have conviction and do as much as they can,” he said.It is believed that some of the drivers have been upset by Hamilton equating ‘silence’ with a supposed level of unconscious racism in the F1 paddock.Haas driver Kevin Magnussen said: “I intend to kneel – not so much because I support the Black Lives Matter organisation, but more because I want to support the worldwide movement against racism and discrimination.”I hope no special group or organisation takes ownership of it.”Topics : The FIA’s cash will go to boost the programme established by Formula One’s chief executive Chase Carey who launched the initiative with $1 million of his own money.The foundation is designed to help finance internships and apprenticeships in F1 for under-represented groups by ensuring there are opportunities for them to fulfill their potential.The FIA said it will prioritize the promotion of a diverse driver talent pipeline that eliminates obstacles en route from karting to the top series.Todt said: “The FIA is guided by the Fundamental Principles of our Statutes which state that we should fight any form of discrimination. Formula One’s ruling body, the International Motoring Federation (FIA), on Sunday pledged to give 1 million euros ($1.1m) to the sport’s new ‘We Race As One’ diversity foundation.In a statement issued ahead of the belated season-opening Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring, FIA president Jean Todt said it was “a first step – and more will come”.”We should fight any form of discrimination and notably on account of skin colour, religion, ethnic or social origin.”last_img read more

Laying out Giants’ blueprint for rebuild after Odell Beckham Jr. trade

first_imgThe Giants have been cut down to size by just about everyone after their decision to trade wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. two weeks after they said they would not do so. Coming off a 5-11, last-place season in the competitive NFC East, there is little faith in general manager Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur leading a turnaround anytime soon.New York is a worse team for the short term with Beckham, defensive end Olivier Vernon and safety Landon Collins all departing. But in return, the Giants are up to 12 picks in the 2019 NFL Draft, and they have have two solid new starters in right guard Kevin Zeitler and safety Jabrill Peppers. Draft planZeitler upgrades an offensive line that will also feature Nate Solder, Will Hernandez and Spencer Pulley in 2019. But right tackle is a glaring weakness. Florida’s Jawaan Taylor, Alabama’s Jonah Williams and Washington State’s Andre Dillard must be play for either of New York’s first-round picks.With both of those picks, the Giants also can’t go wrong taking the best defensive player available. Kentucky’s Josh Allen or Mississippi State’s Montez Sweat would be the edge-rushing guys to consider most.MOCK DRAFT 2019:Giants take chance on QB earlyWith No. 17, Florida State’s Brian Burns can be considered at the position. That pick also lines up with the draft’s premier inside linebackers, LSU’s Devin White or Michigan’s Devin Bush, or a top corner such as LSU’s Greedy Williams, Georgia’s Deandre Baker or Washington’s Byron Murphy.If the Giants were to go wide receiver at No. 17 — No. 6 is too early — then Oklahoma’s Marquise Brown is an option. But considering the early strength of the draft is defense, and the wideout class is deep with sleepers, they can target their Beckham replacement later. With extra picks deeper in the draft, the Giants have the ability to trade up and get who they want on Day 2.Rest of free agency planThe Giants started big on the open market, but now comes the small ball. After moving the Beckham and Vernon contracts, they have about $26 million left under the salary cap.When Gettleman was GM of the Panthers, he won Sporting News’ NFL Executive of the Year award after he built Carolina into a Super Bowl team in 2015. He made many shrewd, lower-cost moves for aging veterans who had been on multiple teams but still had something left to contribute.The Giants’ signing of receiver Golden Tate lines up with that, much like the Panthers’ 2013 signing of Ted Ginn Jr. to offset the release of Steve Smith. Compared to Vernon, Markus Golden is a cheaper fit to help rush the edge in a defense familiar to him.The big spending on Nate Solder last offseason was an anomaly out of desperation. The Giants spent a little less on guard Patrick Omameh, and after little return, they cut him in November.MORE: OBJ’s message to NY after trade To many, Gettleman’s ways are cold, calculated and, well, cheap. But in the NFL, that has proven to be a better path to winning games as opposed to splashy, expensive signings.Even in the constant win-now nature of the league, a little patience is still required. By moving a valuable commodity like Beckham, the Giants have put pressure on themselves to hit on everything just right in the fallout. It won’t be easy, but the path to get it done is being laid.Gettleman now needs the time to try to take it.center_img MORE: Grading the Beckham trade for GiantsGettleman defended the marquee house-cleaning by showing confidence the Giants will do right by the assets they have going forward.”You can win while you build a roster,” Gettleman said in team-issued statement. “We do have a plan, and this part of it.”How might the Giants go about executing the next stages? Let’s take a look:Quarterback planOddly, the only certainty for the Giants now is that Eli Manning, 38, will remain on the roster as the starting quarterback. Emotions from ownership aside, that’s not crazy. It keeps New York from forcing itself into taking a QB early in the draft.With the No. 6 and No. 17 overall picks this year, the Giants are right to do their due diligence scouting Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins, Daniel Jones and Drew Lock. But unless one of them blows New York away between now and April 27, they should pass on a QB in this year’s draft and wait for Manning’s successor in 2020, when Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert top a stronger class.MORE: Giants among losers of free agencyIf it’s a QB in 2019, Jones or Lock at No. 17 would make more sense. The Giants then could use No. 6 to land a can’t-miss edge rusher or offensive tackle, the kind of pick running back Saquon Barkley felt like at No. 2 overall last year.The third and best option, which gets the Giants someone to groom for the near future while hedging bets on Manning now, is trading their high second-round pick (No. 37) to the Cardinals for Josh Rosen. That’s reportedly around Arizona’s asking price for last year’s first-round QB so the Cardinals can clear a path to take Murray No. 1 this year.The Giants would still have 11 picks and plenty to use toward supporting their passing game.last_img read more
