+Paul T Morrison - You seen +Beyond Meat and their yeast heme tech? Looks neat. Another success for GMO?
Impossible Foods took a high-tech approach to creating a meat-free burger that replicates the real thing. It's all designed to tempt carnivores to eat less meat. And it's set to hit restaurants soon.

Wow. Just when you thought the chow at KFC couldn't get anymore disturbing, they turn around and surprise you with something new.
We don't know what to think, but the company is insisting this is a thing. There are three flavors that could potentially go into mass production: original, spicy and hot. Ew?

I feel like this is an April Fool's Day joke that some executive took seriously, and no one below him on the food chain was willing to correct him.

Gas consumption is driven by supply.

Green technologies are not the cause of the past decade's flat consumption figures.
U.S. drivers are set to break a 2007 record for gasoline consumption. With relatively low gas prices, Americans are driving more and buying bigger vehicles again.

Flossing doesn't help? My dental hygienist has been lying to me all this time?
Since 1979, the federal government has urged daily flossing. But the recommendation was recently removed from U.S. dietary guidelines after health advisers found the evidence of benefits to be weak.

Clever. Probably a good idea for EV's. Takes a little bit of the pain out of moving over from a combustion vehicle.
Tesla owners are a resourceful bunch — and while they wait for the Model 3 to start shipping, they've got some time on their hands. Today, that resourcefulness has led to an autonomous charging...

I'm a little surprised we managed to get rates off of 0.0% last year. Of course, 0.25 is still effectively negative interest...

I don't think we're going to see more hikes this year. The monito-maniacs have got the economy addicted to cheap cash, and it's gonna take another Volcker to restore sobriety.
As Fed Chair Janet Yellen tries to chart a course forward for the economy, there are some warning lights blinking on her radar. Wages are rising but there are worries that job growth may have stalled.

Nice little tucked away Indian restaurant. Wouldn't guess it from the decor, but the food is pretty good and the place is priced right. The service is so-so but worth putting up with. Try the eggplant and paneer.

Good beer, good Schnitzel and a great ambiance. Well worth dropping by.

Harbor is tough to get into in weather. Most of harbor doesn't seem well protected against the waves, so prepare for sleeping with a little roll if staying in inclimate weather. Wifi is poorly setup and difficult to connect to. Price is pretty good though.

Good selection of beer (which you might expect from a place called "World of Beer"). Pricing is a bit on the high end, and the "pub food" they offer is definitely just so-so.

If you thought you couldn't find decent Italian food in the middle of nowhere Denmark, you thought wrong. The Italian chef here produces a thuroughly decent set of Italian dishes and real thin crust Italian pizza.
