It seems all you have to do to eat healthier is to add coconut oil to the rice and then cool it in a fridge. When you want to eat, you can heat it up again.

Unfortunately, I don't really understand the science behind this!

We live in an age when all manner of scientific knowledge--from climate change to vaccinations--faces furious opposition. Some even have doubts about the moon landing.

Five Reasons Real Madrid Needs to Banish Gareth Bale http://grantland.com/the-triangle/gareth-bale-real-madrid-fans-cristiano-ronaldo/
Did Bale urinate on the club crest? Pledge solidarity with Catalan independence? Strangle a stray kitten that’d wandered onto the Camp Nou pitch? No, he did something much, much worse.

Some background on the attack on the school in Peshawar.

From http://reddit.com/r/explainlikeimfive/comments/2pgzlb/eli5_the_taliban_just_killed_130_people_in_a/cmwlyjl

The larger context right now is being ignored. Since June the Pakistani military has been conducting a military offensive in the (former) Northwest Frontier Provinces (Now KPP). This area which now has an area called the FATA district is home to various Pakistani Taliban groups and tribal groups ( like the Mehsuds and Wazirs) with shifting allegiances. The Pakistani Taliban is influenced by A) Deobandi Islamism which is a South Asian variation of Islam that has been radicalized by Saudi money and interpretation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deobandi
B) and its dominant influence is the Pashtun tribal ethos of Pashtunwali:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pashtunwali

These two influences have shaped Taliban religious and political ideology. Now, 80 % of the Taliban are Pashtuns, while Pakistan is divided into various ethnic and regional groups ( like Sindhs, Punjabis)..The Pashtuns are also in Afghanistan as the Durrand Line ( the border between Pakistan/Afghanistan) cuts between their ethnic " homeland". They don't identify with the state of Pakistan. Now, since the operation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Zarb-e-Azb was launche, ( the breakdown of the ceasefire with the Taliban with PM Nawaz Sharif's gov't, and the Jinnah int'l airport attack in June), The Taliban consider the use of attacks on children and schools as a means of exacting revenge which is a major important thing in Pashtun culture. They see the deaths of their tribesmen as something that justifies these barbaric attacks. They have been scattered now into various cities in Pakistan as well, which makes it more dangerous. The Pakistani Taliban are at war with the government in Islamabad. I would also like to add that the Taliban attacked an ARMY school, which means these kids were children of soldiers who were fighting in the NWFP or/and the school represented the Army. The tribes the Taliban protect there lost many children to the Pakistani military. This is cold blooded revenge for the Taliban at the same time sending a message to the Pakistani military to stay out of " their" territory.

Edit: I am also going to add a Wiki link to the areas where the Pashtun people predominate. If you notice its in the area of the border region: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pashtun_people#mediaviewer/File:Pashtun_Language_Location_Map.svg

Edit 2: If you want some good sources I suggest two readings:

http://yalepress.yale.edu/book.asp?isbn=9780300178845

http://www.theguardian.com/books/2011/may/01/pakistan-hard-country-anatol-lieven-review

Edit 3: I wanted to clarify that my statements are not demeaning to Pashtun culture or to Pashtun people. I hope you don't take offense. Most Pashtun are not Taliban. My point being was that most Taliban are Pashtun. I want to explain the socioeconomic and historical circumstances of a great people within the context of why the Taliban continue to exert influence.

+Thariq Ahmad​ This seems to also imply that the idea of peak oil is one in flux, since scarcity isn't a fixed value.

"For all intents and purposes, OPEC is now engaged in a "price war" with the United States. What that means is that it's very cheap to pump oil out of places like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. But it's more expensive to extract oil from shale formations in places like Texas and North Dakota. So as the price of oil keeps falling, some US producers may become unprofitable and go out of business. The result? Oil prices will stabilize and OPEC maintains its market share."
Saudi Arabia wants to undercut the recent boom in US oil production.
