Your Perfect Pizza Companion

first_img Subscribe Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Put away your pizza wheel. Don’t even think about using that giant chef’s knife. There’s another kitchen tool that’s faster and better for cutting a pizza: pizza shears! It might sound surprising, but yes! And if you haven’t tried them yet, it’s about the time.Scissors to cut pizza? Does this sound a bit untraditional? Maybe, but yes – kitchen shears are the simplest way to cut pizza. They are more than just scissors; they’re one of the most underrated, valuable tools in your kitchen. There are so many tasks they can handle, and now you can add cutting pizza to the list of their many uses. These pizza shears also offer a handy spatula to transport the slice from directly to your dish (or mouth)!There are other methods for cutting pizza, but none are quite as easy or clean. Even when it’s minimal, the sawing motion from using a knife has a way of pushing the melty cheese and toppings around, usually clumping them together. As for pizza slicers, it’s really difficult to get cleanly cut all the way through the dough. Kitchen shears, on the other hand, cut easily and cleanly through the crust and across the pie, leaving the toppings and cheese just where you placed them.If you would like to give pizza shears a try, get them at Tanager Housewares, which is located at 2156 Huntington Drive in San Marino.

One authority to govern Limerick-city and county

first_imgWhatsApp NewsLocal NewsOne authority to govern Limerick-city and countyBy admin – September 9, 2010 650 Advertisement Email Twitter City is dead…airport is dying, warns BrosnanA NEW unified Limerick local authority to administer the city and service a population of almost 190,000 people, has been recommended to the government by the Limerick Local Government Committee, whose chairman, Denis Brosnan, did not mince his words when, briefing the media on details of the report, he said: “Limerick needs a regeneration of its city centre more than the four housing estates involved.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Limerick needs a new authority with a new mandate to look after the social issues and that of regeneration, which doesn’t know if its mandate will be renewed in two years.“The city is dead, the airport is dying and so is the region – we are trying to turn it into a region that is going again”.The report estimates that an extension of the city boundary into the city’s suburbs in County Clare and County Limerick would create an administrative area serving 187,000 people, which would make Limerick the third biggest city in the country.Upwards of €20million per annum would be achieved in cost savings through the merging of staffing and administrative structures of both councils and the elimination of duplication and these savings would be used to support the city centre’s business environment by harmonising rates in the city centre and suburbs.The report calls for a new management structure for the Limerick Authority and the acquisition of skills and expertise required to meet Limerick’s challenges.It also stipulates that the new authority will have the resources of the third largest city in the country and service a population of 187,000, and the committee recommends that the mayor of the new authority should be elected for a five year term.Throughout the report the stark reality of the city’s deterioration is highlighted.“The relative deprivation of the city has steadily increased over the past 15 years – it is not surprising that the urban core of Limerick performs poorly in other respects as the increases in levels of deprivation occurred during the latter years of the most sustained period of economic growth that the State has experienced”.Following a continuous decline in the population within the city boundary, it now stands at approximately 52,000. All of the areas of severe deprivation are within the boundary, but, as the report points out, the population of the metropolitan area is approximately 100,000 and contains many affluent suburbs (outside the city boundary).“The exclusion of many of Limerick’s suburbs distorts the city’s statistical profile and this has a damaging impact on Limerick’s reputation and lessens the likelihood of potential investment,”  Mr Brosnan asserts.The issue of the suburbs of Shannon Banks and Westbury being included in the boundary extension, is not a stumbling block, he says.“There is no question of a plebiscite being held in Shannon Banks on this – the housing is built in Limerick city. Nobody can tell me that Shannon Banks is in Clare.“We couldn’t put 97,000 people into the city from Clare but yes, we can do so with the 3,000 in Corbally”.The report recommends that pending the 2014 elections, following the establishment of the new Limerick Authority, a mayor should be elected from the 46 members to serve until the 2014 local elections.Supporting the report’s recommendations, Limerick Chamber president, Kieran MacSweeney, said their one priority is that any changes to the local government structure will deliver a city of sufficient scale to allow it reach its full potential to become a driver of growth throughout the region.“We believe the report delivers this and while we were concerned that combining both authorities would take years, we have been assured that this could happen very quickly if it gets the support of the people and the key stakeholders”.center_img Linkedin Facebook Print Previous articleBoost for small firms in tendering processNext articleHSE and INMO clash on hospital cuts adminlast_img read more

Christ Church students face eviction during ball

first_imgChrist Church students, some still in the middle of exams, face being removed from their rooms by college authorities over the weekend of the college ball.In a JCR motion, it is reported , citing non-specific “security reasons”, that the college has ordered that students living in Meadows, Old Library and Tom Quad areas leave their rooms from the 21st June, barring their return until the following day.The College previously stated that the restrictions would only last during the period the ball itself is being held.However, as well as extending the ban period, students have accused the college of not making any specific dispensation for members with examinations.In an emergency JCR meeting held on Sunday, a drafted motion claimed, “This lack of foreknowledge has limited the options of students living in affected areas and constitutes the ticket contract to now be unfair.”It added, “This House is our house, and displacing members, but not alumni and non-students, from their residence on the basis they are a security risk is distasteful.”However, Rachel Perham, PA to the Dean of Christ Church, insisted that students would not be barred from their rooms until the afternoon of the 22nd, as the JCR motion has suggested.“As happens at many other colleges,” she said, “Undergraduates will vacate rooms within the ball perimeter from 12 noon on the day of the ball and be escorted back in groups after the ball between 6.30 and 7.30 am the following morning.”Perham also refuted the suggestion that the college was working against the wishes of students, telling Cherwell, “These arrangements were proposed by the ball committee whose members are mainly undergraduate students, and are the result of lengthy negotiations with the JCR.”In response to claims that the college had made “no specific dispensation” for members with examinations, the college has agreed to give “students with public examinations on the day of the ball or at the beginning of week 9 priority in allocation of alternative accommodation should they not wish to attend the ball.”Perham stated that there would be “special arrangements for those who need to access their belongings after examinations on the morning of the ball.”However, it would seem that claims by the students’ JCR motion for the college to “reimburse members for the cost of finding alternative accommodation” have been disregarded, with Christ Church college stating, “Undergraduate licence agreements cover the period until 9.30 am on the day of the Ball, and residence after this time requires special permission, […] there is no question of undergraduates being evicted from rooms.”Meanwhile, Felix Goodman, a student at Christ Church, spoke in favour of the college’s decision, telling Cherwell that, “The Ball as it is is going to be a security nightmare”.He further stated that he could, “completely understand the college’s desire to make their job slightly easier by shutting these rooms,” suspecting that, “the reason for closing many of these rooms on the night of the ball is to reduce the opportunity for sniper cover.”Negotiations continue between the JCR and the college.The JCR President was unavailable for comment when approached by Cherwell.last_img read more

Kids Cooking Competition

first_imgWhen it comes to grilled cheese sandwiches, there are about as many variations as there are chefs: tangy sandwiches made of cheddar with hearty wheat bread and creamy versions made of smoked Gouda with crusty French bread.The 15 school-aged children who competed at the inaugural Fulton Fresh Kids’ Cooking Competition left no sandwich concept unexplored as they competed in teams and flexed their grilled cheese expertise. Modeled after shows like “Chopped Junior” and hosted at the Ponce City Farmers Market, the cooking competition was a great chance for the students to learn about the culinary world, nutrition and the opportunities provided by University of Georgia Cooperative Extension in Fulton County and Georgia 4-H.The children, all fifth-, sixth- and seventh-graders, were randomly placed into teams of four and worked together to create a balanced meal out of grilled cheese ingredients, kale and a basket of other mandatory ingredients. Judges included chef Brian Carson of The Mercury, chef Daniel Peach of Botiwalla, and Daniel Mobley, market manager for Ponce City Farmers Market. They were impressed by the kids’ cooperation, cooking ability and creativity, but they had to name a winner.The winning team made a kale salad to accompany their sandwich. The team included Parker Payne, 10, of Woodward Academy; Victoria Sweeney, 10, of Warren T. Jackson Elementary School; Isaiah Farrow, 10, of Georgia Connections Academy; and Nile Smith, 10, of Roswell North Elementary School. “Most of these kids had never met and were randomly placed on teams together, but their level of communication, teamwork and creativity was phenomenal,” said Kristen Sumpter, UGA Extension Family and Consumer Sciences agent for Fulton County and Fulton Fresh coordinator. “Even when we threw them curveballs like extra mandatory ingredients, they just kept cooking with as much excitement and creativity as they did when they opened their baskets. Lemons were being zested and kale was being massaged. It was like we were watching professional chefs create new dishes.”Fulton Fresh, a long-running nutrition education program coordinated by UGA Extension in Fulton County, underwent a makeover this summer. Sumpter sharpened the program’s focus on nutritional education for young people by taking cooking and nutrition lessons into Atlanta schools this fall and hosting a number of food-related workshops for kids this summer. The program adopted the new tagline “Growing Communities One Plate at a Time.”Sumpter has collaborated with Laurie Murrah-Hanson and Jeremy Cheney, UGA Extension Georgia 4-H agents in Fulton County, to coordinate a summer full of food, nutrition and gardening youth events this summer.They hope that this summer’s events will help them to introduce families to the wide variety of opportunities that Georgia 4-H and UGA Extension offer.“I have heard of 4-H but I was not sure of everything they did,” said Renee Ross, who was at the cooking competition watching her 10-year-old nephew cook. “I love this, and I love the farm-to-table concept, and I love that people from the farmers market are contributing fresh foods and that kids are using them …“I think it’s a great way for kids who don’t have access to 4-H (in school) to be introduced to it or even learn more about the program.”For updates on upcoming events, visit or search “UGA Extension Fulton County” on Facebook.last_img read more
