Ok, ok, ok, I get it now. Pretty much everyone in the world but me knew about macaroni pie (thanks, Twitter). So let me explain: a commenter on the site described making a macaroni pie for the holidays. Well I was fascinated and had tons of questions, so in my most recent video I asked, and Taj was kind enough to answer. So for my own edification, and for anyone who isn’t from the islands, here is Taj’s description of the scrumptious sounding Macaroni Pie:
I will be honest and admit that I wasn’t hugely familar with the work of director, Stanley Kubrick. Of course I’d seen some of the more iconic movies: A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and his last, Eyes Wide Shut. But I’m not really a cinephile (I LOVE film but I’m more of a TV expert, lol) so a great deal of his work I knew of but had never seen when I visited the LACMA Exhibit of Kubrick’s work. Still, it was FASCINATING and wonderful! I am a huge fan of understanding what inspires people and how masters of any trade begin their journeys. This exhibit shares it all.
This New Year’s Day I found myself lounging around, flipping through channels when I stumbled across a Dan Rather Special Report on Antibiotics in America. It was fascinating! So I scrambled for the DVR, and made sure to take in the whole episode. The report examined the alarming consequences of the overuse of antibiotics in our country. Which has created a rise in antibiotic-resistant infections that costs us more than $35 billion a year!
Even more alarming, the rise in resistance threatens to bring back diseases we’d previously thought eradicated. Rather also takes us to Norway, a country whose taken a more prudent approach to the use of antibiotics.
