Cooking Up a Battle over Foie Gras

Tuesday, Oct fonts for photoshop for free. 09, 2007
By Lisa McLaughlin

At Philadelphia’s Vintage restaurant last week the special was two delicately pan-seared pieces of foie gras perched atop toasted brioche with a berry coulis, garnished with fresh raspberries and a side of rebellion mac video von youtube herunterladen.

The days of foie gras as a simple exercise in gastronomic luxury are over. Foie gras — French for the fatted liver of a duck or goose — has come under increasing fire in the U.S., where it is a $17 million business minecraft waffen mods zum herunterladen. Chicago has banned the sale of it and California law will make it illegal to sell or raise foie gras by 2012. The fiercest battleground right now is in Philadelphia, where City Councilman Jack Kelly has proposed a ban and animal rights group Hugs for Puppies has been protesting the homes and businesses of chefs who serve the delicacy märchen hörspiel herunterladen. But a group of Philly restaurateurs are fighting back, under the banner Philadelphia Chefs for Choice, marking the first time anywhere that chefs have organized to protest the foie gras protesters wie tut man fortnite herunterladen. During the first week of October, nearly 20 restaurants served foie gras specials on their lunch and dinner menus for just $5. The chef group has stated: “In the city of Philadelphia, the birthplace of American liberty, we want to keep the right to serve foie gras.”

The debate is centered around the practice of gavage, in which corn is force-fed to farm-raised ducks through a funnel down their throats mp4 dateien downloaden kostenlos. Some argue that gavage is inhumane, while others counter that the physiology of a duck is not the same as a human. “It seems terrible if you don’t know that a duck’s esophagus is lined with a very thick cuticle, if you don’t realize that baby ducks are fed by their mother pushing her beak down the baby’s throat,” says Ariane Daguin, owner of D’Artagnan, the largest foie gras purveyor in the U.S remote desktop download kostenlos. Recent studies by Dr. Daniel Gu men a leading expert on the physiological effects of gavage, have shown that ducks with young in the wild were under more stress than the ducks being fed through gavage. And both The American Veterinary Medical Association’s House of Delegates and the American Association of Avian Pathologists have concluded that foie is not a product of animal cruelty.

WASHINGTON — American laboratories handling the world’s deadliest germs and toxins have experienced more than 100 accidents and missing shipments since 2003, and the number is increasing as more labs do the work windows 7 32 bit iso kostenlos.

No one died, and regulators said the public was never at risk during these incidents. But the documented cases reflect poorly on procedures and oversight at high-security labs, some of which work with organisms and poisons that can cause illnesses with no cure schriftart alex brush kostenlos download. In some cases, labs have failed to report accidents as required by law.

Caring for bears
Protecting wildlife worth a little money and inconvenience

Clay Evans, guest editor
Thursday, September 27, 2007

What would you be willing to sacrifice to help prevent the tragic sacrifice of “nuisance” black bears who wander into human-inhabited areas of Boulder County fortnite auf windows herunterladen? A little money? Some convenience?

Wildlife advocates from groups as diverse as Sinapu, the Sierra Club and In Defense of Animals are hoping we’ll at least consider a little of both warum kann ich bei pinterest keine bilder herunterladen. Following the latest killing of a roaming bear on Sept. 14 in eastern Boulder, they’ve asked the city to enact a law to punish citizens who leave unsecured, bear-attracting garbage cans at the curb video von youtube herunterladen online.

It’s far too late to pass an ordinance this year, as bears soon will be heading back into the high country for a long winter’s nap herunterladen. But now is exactly the right time for the city – and Boulder County, for that matter – to start the process of putting put some legal teeth into now-voluntary suggestions that people don’t lure bears into danger with trash, bird feeders and fallen fruit minecraft download pc windows 10 for free.

You can hardly blame bears for heading to where the living is (relatively) easy, particularly in a dry year when food is scarce. Unfortunately, under the state’s “two strikes” rules, bears caught more than once in town typically are shot and killed ebook downloaden forum.

Urge Atlanta Falcons to Kick Vick Off of the Team; NFL star pleads guilty to dogfighting charges but remains on Falcons’ roster

Standing before a U.S downloaden media player gratis. District Court Judge in a Richmond courthouse today, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick pled guilty to federal charges of conspiring to run an illegal dogfighting operation over the last six years out of his Virginia home wo kann man hörspieleen. In hearing his plea, the judge emphasized that he is not legally obligated to follow the prosecutors’ reduced sentencing recommendations, and that he could send Vick to prison for up to five years cmd herunterladen. Vick’s sentencing is scheduled for December 10th.

Even though the NFL has suspended Vick indefinitely from play and may eventually ban him from the league for good, the Atlanta Falcons have chosen not to sever their ties with the disgraced athlete herunterladen. The reason, according to team owner Arthur Blank, is that cutting Vick from the team is “not in the long-term best interests of (the) franchise.”

Yet the fact remains that Michael Vick has finally admitted to a serious criminal offense after weeks of denial during which he essentially lied to Blank, his teammates, football fans, and the public antivirus program free full version chip windows 7. Considerations about what is best for Atlanta Falcons, Inc. pale before Vick’s ongoing abuse and murder of innocent dogs. Regardless of how much money is at stake in ending his lucrative contract, Blank needs to do the right thing, which in this case is cutting Vick from the team now netflix inhalte auf pcen.

Vick to Plead Guilty to Dog Fighting Charges

Attend courthouse rally in Richmond on Monday, Aug whatsapp download voor windows phone. 27

When federal prosecutors first leveled charges of dogfighting against Michael Vick about a month ago, the star Atlanta Falcons quarterback denied any involvement in the illegal bloodsport, even though fighting dogs and equipment were found at his Virginia home youtube hörbuch herunterladen. He also told Falcons team owner Arthur Blank and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that he was innocent of the allegations against him, and maintained the same claim publicly telefon warteschleife musiken.

Yet today, Vick officially changed his story by announcing he would be pleading guilty to felony charges of conspiring to run an illegal dogfighting operation called “Bad Newz Kennels” for the last six years adobe reader dc kostenloser download. Three of his dogfighting cohorts — Quanis Phillips, Purnell Peace, and Tony Taylor — recently implicated Vick in plea agreements and agreed to testify against him in court herunterladen. According to the co-defendants, Vick not only supplied most of the money used to run the dogfighting ring (including funds to cover $10,000 bets on individual fights), but actively helped execute at least eight dogs who lost fights by drowning and hanging arlo netgear herunterladen.

Vick entered a guilty plea as part of a special deal with federal prosecutors requiring he fully cooperate with the investigation in exchange for a reduced prison sentence new chrome version. Up to five years in prison and $250,000 in fines may also be levied against Vick, but these would likely pale in comparison to the financial losses he will suffer when corporate sponsors permanently end their lucrative endorsement deals with the famous football player spiele kostenlos herunterladen chip. Potentially, the most devastating punishment of all for the disgraced athlete is that he could be banned from the NFL for life under the league’s personal conduct policy waldmeister sause safari kostenlos downloaden.

Vick’s impending guilty plea to dogfighting charges reveals that he has been betraying the trust of the NFL, his teammates, football fans, and the public during these past weeks and even years, trying to hide his disgraceful criminal conduct behind a facade of flimsy denials herunterladen. The first step in bringing Vick to justice will take place on Monday, August 27 at a plea hearing in Richmond, where a rally will be held outside the courthouse.
