How well do you know pizza?

Please enter your email address here Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here Pizza is one of America’s favorite foods. 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.

Bulls into the Super 14 final after beating the Crusaders

first_imgMonday May 25, 2009 Bulls into the Super 14 final after beating the Crusaders The Bulls will meet the Chiefs in the final of the Super 14 at next weekend after they staged a stunning recovery to beat the Crusaders 36-23 at Loftus Versfeld this past weekend.An early try by Bryan Habana got the home team on the board, but it was last years champions, the Crusaders, who then flew off to a 20-7 lead, much to the dismay of the 52 000 strong home crowd.The Bulls the staged an inspired comeback as they scored 22 points in eight minutes, taking them to a 27-20 half-time lead.Flyhalf Morne Steyn did his Springbok aspirations no harm as he kicked four drop goals and converted three of the Bulls tries, contributing 21 points and earning him the Man of the Match award.The Bulls will host the Final at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday against the Chiefs. Home advantage will be a huge factor, with the majority of tickets already sold out.“We will need to build extra stands for the final,” joked Bulls skipper Victor Matfield as he thanked the passionate blue-clad crowd after the match.“The Crusaders began with a bang and the way our boys came back was nothing less than awesome.”Crusaders captain Richie McCaw accepted defeat with dignity.“We were not good enough because after a great start we surrendered the momentum to the Bulls.” Kick off is at 17:30 local time (GMT +2) on Saturday 30th May.

Sharks playmaker swaps Durban for Manchester after impressive loan stint

first_imgMonday Feb 25, 2019 Sharks playmaker swaps Durban for Manchester after impressive loan stint Sale Sharks have today announced that Natal Sharks flyhalf Rob du Preez will rejoin the club, this time on a three-year deal. The Sharks number ten scored a lovely try against the Blues in Durban on Saturday and will see out the rest of the Super Rugby season before moving up north. ADVERTISEMENTThe son of former Springbok scrumhalf and current Natal Sharks coach, Robert du Preez, Rob junior had an impressive loan spell in Manchester earlier this season. The 25-year-old will link up with another Springbok in Faf de Klerk, forming a formidable halfback pairing for the Sale Sharks going forward.The Currie Cup winner is Test capped but has been out of the frame after a bit of a nightmare debut against Wales in Washinton DC. He has since scored 81 points in 9 games for the Manchester-based Sharks, and looks forward to joining after Super Rugby.“I’m delighted to have signed for Sale and was very flattered when Dimes called and asked if I would consider joining the boys full-time in Manchester,” he said.“It was an extremely difficult decision to leave The Sharks and Durban, especially with the family connections I have here but I feel as though it is the right time in my career for a new challenge, a change of scenery and feel I can continue to test myself in the Gallagher Premiership after the taster I had in 2018.“The club have extremely high ambitions and with the calibre of signings that Sale are making I feel I can play a big part in the future of the club and can’t wait to get started in the UK.ADVERTISEMENT“In the meantime, I am fully committed to the Cell-C Sharks here in South Africa and will give everything I have during this year’s Super Rugby season and hopefully build on last year’s win in the Currie Cup to produce some more special memories before I leave.”Sale Sharks’ Director of Rugby Steve Diamond added, “Rob came to us last year from the Cell-C Sharks with an outstanding pedigree and impressed everybody here at Sale from day one.“He quickly established himself as an integral part of the matchday squad and in his short time at the club fitted into the environment at Carrington seamlessly. Rob is exactly the calibre of player we are looking for in our quest to challenge for the Gallagher Premiership and we look forward to welcoming him back to Carrington after the conclusion of the 2019 Super Rugby competition.”Du Preez scored a nicely taken try in the Sharks round two win over the Blues in Durban on Saturday.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , News Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Arauca: News in danger

first_img May 13, 2021 Find out more April 27, 2021 Find out more ColombiaAmericas News Reports RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia News ColombiaAmericas Receive email alerts A report published today details the threats, restrictions and pressures on the press in the eastern department of Arauca. The latter was recently declared “rehabilitation and consolidation zone” by president Uribe administration. Entitled “Arauca: news in danger,” the report describes both the attacks against the press by armed groups outside the law as well as “the army’s constant monitoring of the content of the news carried by the local media.” It also makes recommendations to the authorities, armed groups, news media and civil society organisations designed to promote and protect a right that is violated almost daily in Arauca – the right to inform and be informed without any kind of censorship or intimidation.The report was compiled by a fact-finding mission that went to Arauca on 28-29 November to assess freedom expression. The mission consisted of representatives of Reporters Without Borders, the latin-american organization Press and Society Institute (Instituto Prensa y Sociedad, IPYS), the colombian organizations Press Freedom Foundation (Fundación para la Libertad de Prensa, FLIP) and Antonio Nariño Project (Proyecto Antonio Nariño) and the rapid response unit of the Inter-American Press Association (IAPA).The mission was prompted by the recent murder of Efraín Varela, the region’s most influential journalist, and by reports from journalists in Arauca that they have been threatened. The fact that three of the department’s municipalities have been declared a rehabilitation zone was an additional reason.Local journalists said Varela’s murder “radically changed the way journalism is practised in the department.” The mission found that since his death, the population of Arauca has been receiving much less news. “When ask to rate the degree of freedom of expression they enjoy in their work on a scale from one (no freedom) to ten (total freedom), journalists in Arauca responded with an average rating of four,” concludes the report.Read the full report.

Independent Siberian TV station’s forced closure imminent

first_img Receive email alerts December 31, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Independent Siberian TV station’s forced closure imminent News One of western Siberia’s few independent TV stations, Tomsk-based TV-2, will have to end over-the-air broadcasting at midnight tonight, after covering news in the region for 23 years, because the local branch of the state telecommunications network RTRS, which has an over-the-air transmission monopoly, has rescinded its contract.Thereafter, TV-2 will be limited to transmission by cable until early February, when it will probably have to end all forms of broadcasting. The past year has been marked by growing pressure on Russian media that are not under the Kremlin’s direct control. The pressure has above all been felt at the federal level, targeting such broadcasters as radio Ekho Moskvy, information website Russkaya Planeta and TV station Dozhd, but regional broadcasters have not been spared.RTRS notified TV-2 at the end of the November of the decision to end its contract – one that is tantamount to a death sentence. In a press release, RTRS said the decision was taken because TV-2 had “contravened” an agreement, alluding to TV-2’s reaction to a previous closure threat.When RTRS suspended transmission of TV-2’s signal for several weeks in April after a malfunction of the transmission equipment owned by RTRS, Roskomnadzor, the federal communications surveillance agency, threatened to strip TV-2 of its licence if broadcasting did not resume promptly.A wave of demonstrations in support of TV-2 prevented the threat from being carried out. But an RTRS representative told the business daily Vedomosti on 24 December that it could no longer contemplate working with a partner that turned a technical incident into a political issue and used it to mobilize social and media support.TV-2 said RTRS’s decision was “absurd” and “legally unfounded” because it had two valid licences.But, after RTRS’s decision, Roskomnadzor in turn rescinded its previously announced decision – confirmed in November – to extend TV-2’s licence until 2025, explaining that the earlier announcement had been due to a technical error.

The first hearing in the case is scheduled for 21 January.“We condemn this unilateral and arbitrary decision, which threatens the existence of an independent regional news outlet,” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon said. “Disguised as an administrative dispute, it constitutes a grave violation of the right to information and endangers media pluralism. We urge the local authorities and the head of Roskomnadzor to stop persecuting TV-2 and to restore the necessary conditions for it to continue operating in the region.”Protests against TV-2’s imminent closure have been staged in Tomsk. More than 4,000 people took part in the first one on 14 December. Demonstrations in support of the station were held again in Tomsk and in Moscow on 21 December, each with several thousand participants.A TV-2 petition with 15,000 signatures, denouncing the station’s closure, was sent to the president’s office, which acknowledged receipt and undertook to respond by 21 February, thereby violating a legal obligation to respond with 30 days of receipt.TV-2 has received many awards – including 23 Russian Broadcasting TEFI prizes – for the quality of its regional news coverage and its respect for journalistic ethics since it began broadcasting in 1991.

Metropolitan Baptist Church Plans to Brings the Community Together for an Unforgettable Music Experience on Sunday

first_img Subscribe Altadena’s Metropolitan Baptist Church hosts its annual Down Home Gospel Concert Sunday to ring in the holiday season and to bring the community together through gospel music.The concert will feature prominent area gospel musical performers and an afternoon of fun, unity and joyful singing open to all.“What we’re trying to do is extend gospel music during this period of joy and adoration leading up to Thanksgiving,” said Metropolitan Baptist Church Deacon Joe Brown.The concert is dedicated to the memory of a local Pasadena gospel artist named Keith Williams who passed away earlier this year. Williams was originally from New York and sang for a variety of professional gospel groups throughout his lifetime, according to Brown.“The spirit and intent of this event is to lift up our community for anybody and everybody and that’s who we want to see come in —  not just one ethnic group — but everybody,” said Brown.Brown described the significance of gospel music as being the heritage of the South, specifically in African-American culture. He explained that the unique style of blending voices, without music equipment to aid, is special and unlike any other form of music that exists today.“People will get a chance to understand some of the historical heritage of gospel music and how it is sung,” said Brown.The event features both acclaimed recording artists and local groups hand-picked to perform by Brown that include Men of FAME Pasadena, New Hope Baptist Church Male Choir (San Bernardino), Metropolitan Baptist Church Male Choir, Morning Star BC Men, Acclaimed Artist Rev. Michael Larry & Gospel Soul Touchers, God’s Elect KEISO & Church Boys, according to a press release.“Gospel music has a flavor to it that makes it hard for you to sit down. It doesn’t matter who you are — it’s electric and lots of fun,” said Brown.Brown expects over 600 attendees to participate in the fun. The ceremony will also feature a special recognition to Brother Eddie Fulton (Eddie’s Gospel Hour), and Deacon Osephine Washington (Gospel Revelators).Master of ceremonies is KALI 900 am Radio Hose Rev. Walter Radford.“It’s going to be electric, it’s going to be moving and for those who have never grown up in the gospel environment, you will never forget this experience,” said Brown.The Down Home Gospel Concert In Memory of Keith Williams begins at 4:00 p.m. at Metropolitan Baptist Church located at 2283 N Fair Oaks Ave, Altadena.For more information, visit www.metrochurchalta.org or call (626) 798-8611.
