The Menu: Grilled Ribeyes topped with peppers, onions and mushrooms, Roasted Garlic Heads, Roasted Potatoes, Asparagus, and Grilled Corn on the CobBy The Grill WhispererLadies and Gentlemen, start your grills.Okay here we go. You have cleaned your grill. You have gone to the grocery store. You have everything you need.Turn the grill on high and close the lid. We want it blazing by the time you start putting food in there. And it will be. You have a lot of prep work inside to tend to before we get back.Turn the oven on at 275 degrees. You may need this to keep certain items warm if they finish early.Cut the tops off of the garlic heads and place a pat of garlic herb butter over each. Wrap them in tin foil and put them in the grill on the top level as far away from the flame as you can. The garlic heads will be the first in and the last out. Your guests will not believe how tender these come out on a grill.Roasted GarlicCut the little potatoes in half. Put the olive oil, salt and pepper into a plastic bag. Pour the potatoes into the bag and shake. Make sure they are all coated well.Put the potatoes in a grill basket and place them in the lower left corner of the grill. You’ll have to keep a close watch on the potatoes, because you will be opening and closing the grill throughout the cooking cycle. This makes their ready time unpredictable. Shake the basket occasionally so they don’t stick to the bottom. They could be ready any time between 45-60 minutes, so stick a fork in them occasionally. If it goes through easily, they are ready.Take out the steaks and arrange them on a large cutting board. Lightly drizzle a little Worcestershire Sauce on them and rub it into the meat. Put a fairly good coat of extra coarse salt and pepper on each steak. Add a light coat of garlic powder. Massage the seasoning into the meat. Turn them over and do it again. Put the steaks in the refrigerator and forget about them for a while.Take the asparagus out and cut the stems about one third of the way up. That should take care of the stringy part. Fill another bag of salt, pepper and olive oil along with garlic powder and shake thoroughly with the asparagus inside. Put those back in the refrigerator next to the steaks still in the bag.Take out the mushrooms, peppers and onions. Quarter the mushrooms. Cut the peppers and onions until you have slices about the same size as the mushrooms. We want these three vegetables to cook at about the same speed. Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter In a large bowl, pour in the olive oil, salt and pepper and mix together. Pour the three vegetables into the bowl and toss thoroughly until all are well coated. Place the vegetables in a grill basket and set in the refrigerator next to the steaks.Take out the corn. Peel back the cornhusks, keeping them attached. Discard the silk. Spread the herbed garlic butter all over the corn. Fold the husks back over the corn. Wrap the corn in foil and take it to the grill. In a tight formation on the grill, add the corn to the right of the potatoes. Stir the potatoes to keep them from sticking to the grill basket and check them with a fork. When you get back to the kitchen, set a timer for 15 minutes.Take a beer out of the cooler and sit with your guests. You have 15 minutes before your next dish goes on the grill.The Grill Whisperer has a story that will put your mind at ease while you prepare this incredible meal.There once was a great Zen master (or maybe it was a short order cook) who told the Grill Whisperer to calm his mind and realize that the grill does all of the cooking. You are only there to watch and occasionally move food on and off the grill. Tell your guests that story. They will laugh and be amazed at how calm you are.When the bell rings, bring out the mushroom, peppers and onions dish. Place it on the lower left corner of the grill.Grilled Peppers, Onions and MushroomsRemove the foil and put the corn right on the grill. Grill the ears until the husks are nicely charred. After three minutes, turn them over and grill the other side for another three minutes.Stir the potatoes again and check them with a fork to see if they are done. Take the corn off the grill and remove the husks. You will begin to realize at this point how special that garlic herb butter is when you get that first smell. Reserve the corn in the oven.Bring the steaks and asparagus out of the refrigerator and to the grill. Scrape the grill one last time with a grill brush where the steaks will be. Put olive oil on a paper towel and lightly grease the grates. This is called “seasoning the grill”.Turn the grill from high to medium high. Toss the mushrooms, peppers and onions. Do the same to the potatoes. Put the asparagus on top of the potatoes.There are a few things to consider before we start on the main event. Ribeyes are a pretty forgiving cut of meat.  The fat marbling makes for a very flavorful and juicy steak without a lot of effort. The biggest thing to keep in mind when grilling steak is that you can always throw it back on the grill if it isn’t done, but you can’t reverse an over-cooked steak.  So err on the side of rare. Our goal is medium rare.Each steak typically has a pointy end. As you place the steak on the grill, set the pointy end so that it is pointing at two o’clock. The steaks will grab the grill and hang on for dear life. Don’t worry though, in two minutes they will relinquish because of your “seasoning” trick.At this point, you are on flare-up watch.  The fat dripping off of those beautiful steaks is bound to create an eager fire that will react.  If a flare-up occurs and doesn’t go away in a few seconds, simply use your tongs to slide the steaks away from the open flame until the flame dies down and then move them back over the heat.After two minutes, rotate the steaks from two o’clock to five o’clock. Don’t turn them over and don’t stab the steaks with any sharp device. We want every drop of juice to stay in those ribeyes. Use tongs.If the cross marks aren’t perfect, you have one more shot with the other side of the steak.After two more minutes turn the steaks over. Make sure your angled grill marks are perfect! This is the mark of a true Grill Master. If any of the marks are less than perfection, you have another chance with the new side of meat. Otherwise, let them go for another four minutes to cook them at medium rare.Toss the mushrooms, peppers and onions. They should be done by now. Take them off the grill and set them next to the corn in the oven. The asparagus and potatoes should be done as well. Take them off the grill and set them in the oven.Remove the steaks from the grill and allow them to rest for five minutes before serving.  The resting period is important so that the juices don’t run out when you cut into the ribeye. The Grill Whisperer could make further suggestions, but he prefers to fade off into the emerging sunset and let the student take all the credit for their grilling success. You have come a long way on this journey. Maybe have another exotic beer and watch your guests enjoying themselves. You’ve earned it. Your skill on the grill is confirmed. Until I am in Apopka again, have a great summer on the grill!last_img read more

TED aims for even greater impact with The Audacious Project

first_imgReplacing and ramping up the TED PrizeTED has for some time been active in the area of supporting big ideas for good. It has hosted and shared educational and inspiring talks by thinkers on a wide variety of topics.In addition, for 12 years it has turned some of these big ideas into action through its TED Prize. You can read about some of the social entrepreneurs who have been awarded this prize.The 2017 TED Prize winner was Raj Panjabi for the work of his nonprofit, Last Mile Health. It received $1 million from TED “and the resources of our global community to launch a new way for community health workers to learn online”.But he has a far larger vision, the kind that has inspired The Audacious Project. Indeed, his work and that of partner organisation Living Goods, has received $50m as a pilot of The Audacious Project, to help them save 30 million lives by 2030.The Audacious Project replaces the TED Prize. But it also expands its aims and level of support. Anderson says: “It’s a bigger bet on the power of ideas and the entrepreneurs that champion them.”The new annual prize project will see social entrepreneurs invited to share their boldest ideas  – “ideas that truly take your breath away” – with TED.Selected ideas and entrepreneurs will then be presented to donors and the public, “inspiring people across the world to come together to act and turn these audacious dreams into realities”.We’re excited to partner with @TEDTalks for the #AudaciousProject — a new way to support and fund ideas for global change. Can’t wait to share the incredible winners soon! https://t.co/W0YstkV0mc pic.twitter.com/rpMrpvXVOS— ELMA Philanthropies (@ELMAPhilanthro) April 4, 2018 Tagged with: Funding The Audacious Project is the result of recognising the challenges that social entrepreneurs face, according to Anderson, namely that:there is no inherent reason why nonprofit initiatives can’t generate change at massive scalenonprofit fundraising is fundamentally harderit’s not just the social entrepreneurs who are frustrated but private donors too.Its full title is The Audacious Project: Collaborative Philanthropy for Bold Ideas.So far more than $250 million has been committed to seven bold ideas for global change.It will operated from TED under the leadership of Executive Director Anna Verghese. She has been the TED Prize Director for the last five years.The Audacious Project is our attempt to imagine what an IPO for the nonprofit world might look like, and to create a way for private individuals to pool resources and work together in the service of entrepreneurs who could change the world.— Chris Anderson (@TEDchris) April 4, 2018 TED2018This year’s TED Conference will include a session announcing The Audacious Project, which will be livestreamed. It will take place at 5pm PDT on Wednesday 11 April.Attendees will be able to vote on how $1 million will be distributed among the projects that have been selected this year.On that day the public will be able to contribute via the Audacious Project website to the selected projects. In addition the website will be open to “any change-maker or change-making organisation” to pitch their own idea for impact at scale and detail how they could execute it given the appropriate financial support.  About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Indiana Farm Fatality Summary Reminds Hoosier Farmers of Dangers

first_img Indiana Farm Fatality Summary Reminds Hoosier Farmers of Dangers Facebook Twitter By Purdue University News Service – Sep 22, 2020 Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Farm Fatality Summary Reminds Hoosier Farmers of Dangers Previous articlePurdue Crop Chat Episode 9, Preparing for HarvestNext articleAsian Import Ban on German Pork Could Fuel Growth for US Pork Purdue University News Service SHARE SHARE Purdue University’s Agricultural Safety and Health Program released the annual Indiana Farm Fatality Summary with Historical Overview, coinciding with National Farm Safety and Health Week, which has been observed the third week of September since 1944. The program reported 21 work-related on-farm deaths in the state in 2019, the fewest number of documented cases since 2013.Tractors and skid steer loaders were involved in at least eight of the 21 documented fatal farm incidents. Three of the victims were children under the age of 5, while 11 were 60 or older.“The continued incidence of tractor rollovers indicates that a greater focus on the value of Rollover Protection Structures (ROPS) – especially on tractors used for mowing – could prove beneficial,” the report states.The report also highlights the continued need for injury prevention educational programs for those 18 and younger.Purdue University’s Agricultural Safety and Health Program released the annual Indiana Farm Fatality Summary with Historical Overview coinciding with National Farm Safety and Health Week. (Purdue University photo)The number of farm fatalities for the past 50 years continues to trend lower, probably reflecting safer machinery and work practices while also corresponding with a decline in the number of farmers. No Indiana agency documents farm-related non-fatal injuries, but prior research has indicated that approximately one in every nine Indiana farms has a farm-work-related injury incident that requires medical attention each year.Bill Field, Purdue agriculture and biological engineering professor and extension safety specialist, has summarized over 1,100 farm fatalities during his career.“Every one of these lives mattered to someone. Each one was an added cost to the food we enjoy every day.”As Hoosier farmers prepare for harvest, program members remind farmers to keep safety a top priority and manage the expectations of machinery and people.Purdue’s Agricultural Safety and Health Program has monitored farm-related fatalities in Indiana for nearly 60 years using sources including news reports, web searches, personal interviews and voluntary reporting from extension educators and individuals.The full report is available at: www.inprepared.org.

Journalist slain in Guayaquil, a day after escaping earlier murder attempt

The motive is not yet known but press reports quoted local sources as saying he had been the target of a murder attempt 24 hours earlier and had received threats.A former employee of privately-owned TV stations Ecuavisa, Teleamazonas and TC Televisión, Valdivieso still worked intermittently as an independent journalist while pursuing business activities and acting as a PR consultant. Aged 52, he was the father of three children.“Valdivieso continued to report news developments on social networks and a small online TV station so his murder may have been linked to journalistic activities,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We ask the investigators to take this possibility into account.”He was the second journalist to be murdered in Ecuador in the past 10 months, following the photographer Byron Baldeón, who was killed near Guayaquil on 1 July 2012.Valdivieso has just got into his car after visiting his mother in the Guayaquil district of Atarazana when a masked gunmen went up to him and shot him three times. He was rushed to a nearby hospital but attempts revive him were unsuccessful. It was Atarazana residents who said there had been an attempt to kill him the day before.He joins the long list of journalists killed in the western hemisphere since the start of the year. Three have been killed in Brazil, two in Guatemala and one each in Haiti, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Ecuador and Venezuela. According to Reporters Without Borders’ monitoring, a link with the victim’s work as a journalist has so far been established in four of these cases (see the press freedom barometer on the Reporters Without Borders website).Outside photo: El Comercio EcuadorAmericas June 15, 2020 Find out more Two months before Assange’s extradition hearing, RSF calls for his release on humanitarian grounds and for US Espionage Act charges to be droppedlast_img read more

‘Banks Girls’ gather for second reunion

first_img Book Nook to reopen Sponsored Content The old brick Banks Junior High School building built in 1936 is still in use today. The “Banks Girls” attended classes in this building through the ninth grade and, at that point, they primarily transferred to either to Pike County High School in Brundidge or to Charles Henderson High School in Troy.Banks, Alabama, originally named “Wiley’s Station,” was founded in 1890 when the Alabama Midland railroad was constructed through the area, but the name was shortly afterward changed to Banks, Alabama, in honor of the Banks family, one of the first families to settle in the vicinity.Most of the students who attended Banks school were from the town of Banks but, when the school consolidation movement started in 1919, students from Harmony, Monticello, Josie, Enon, Ebenezer, Union Hill, Saco, Bethel and other small community schools wound up attending the Banks school. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits By Secrets Revealed The lovely home of Mr. and Mrs. J.D. Barr Jr. on Highway 29 in Banks was the gracious setting for the second reunion of the “Banks Girls” on Saturday, June 30.The “Banks Girls” is a group of ladies who lived in or near Banks and attended Banks Junior High School around the same general time as Mrs. Barr’s daughter, Suzanne Clemmons.The first of these gatherings was held about three years ago when a group of 10, including Jean Barr and Wilda Steele, a former Banks teacher, met at a Troy restaurant for lunch. This year, Mrs. Barr insisted that the party be held at her home.For nearly three hours, the group of almost 20 former Banks students, enjoyed re-living shared memories of the “good old days” at Banks school, getting re-acquainted and bringing one another up-to-day on the last half century of their lives. ‘Banks Girls’ gather for second reunion This Video Will Soon Be Banned.
