first_imgEBAY(NEW YORK) — Oreo and fashion brand Supreme collaborated to create what has become one of the most-coveted of cookies.The limited-edition red-and-white cookie sandwich with the Supreme logo baked into it, sold out on Thursday after the New York-based street style brand’s latest product drop.Now, savvy customers who bought the specialty Double Stuff Oreos that come in a pack of three are reselling the cookies online via Ebay for some highly inflated markups.One seller on eBay, who has been a member since 2018, listed a package of 3 “rare” Supreme Oreo cookies and, at one point, highest bid of $87 was up to $17,199. Supreme x @Oreo Coming Soon. pic.twitter.com/I6vlUpOBq5— The Supreme Saint (@TheSupremeSaint) February 17, 2020Another seller with positive feedback had the same item with $4,000 listed as the “Buy it now” price.Other listings for “never opened” cookies had multiple active bids ranging from $17 to $14,900.A spokesperson for the cookie brand confirmed the collaboration between the iconic cookie and Supreme to ABC News, but could not provide further information about the sales. Supreme did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Buzz around Supreme, a SoHo-based brand that was first founded in 1994, has grown exponentially over the years, as evidenced by the highly anticipated merchandise drops and hourslong lines to snag the limited-edition product collaborations.Along with the release of the cookie, the Spring Summer 2020 accessories line included Ziploc bags, 32-ounce Nalgene water bottles, Fujifilm Instax Mini Polaroid film, Spalding basketballs, 3-packs of Hanes tag-less T-shirts, skateboard decks, a Mac Tools workbench and more.Outside of Supreme locations in New York, Los Angeles and European stores, the products will have an online release on Feb. 27 with another product drop in Japan on Feb. 22, according to the brand’s website.

first_imgThe Vulcan Plow Company, pictured here in the 1950s, was located at First and Ingle streets. The building was noteworthy for its metal statue of the ancient Roman god Vulcan, which had stood on top of the building since at least 1889. Originally called Heilman Plow Works, the firm was renamed Vulcan Plow Company; it became the leading producer of farm equipment in the Ohio Valley, with products shipped as far as South Africa. The factory was razed in the mid-1950s, but the statue, over nine feet in height, is now on display at the Evansville Museum.FOOTNOTES: We want to thank Patricia Sides, Archivist of Willard Library for contributing this picture that shall increase people’s awareness and appreciation of Evansville’s rich history.

first_imgFor many Georgians, the ritual preparations for freezing temperatures and possible snowfall include a trip to the grocery store to stock up on milk, bread and other basics. But University of Georgia experts say to keep in mind that frost, ice and snow often result in loss of power. Without power to keep appliances working, food stored in refrigerators and freezers can quickly begin to go bad.As Georgians prepare for freezing temperatures and possible snowfall, University of Georgia experts say to keep in mind that frost, ice and snow often result in loss of power. Without power to keep appliances working, food stored in refrigerators and freezers can quickly begin to go bad.”Ideally, when the power goes out, the first thing you should do is place a refrigerator/freezer thermometer in the freezer, if there isn’t one already in there,” said Elizabeth Andress, a food safety specialist with University of Georgia Cooperative Extension.The recommended temperature for food storage in refrigerators is 40 degrees Fahrenheit or colder. If the freezer stays as cold as the refrigerator, many foods will be safe to use or refreeze, Andress said. To help protect once-frozen foods, buy dry ice and place it in the freezer. “A 50-pound block of dry ice will protect food in a 20-cubic-foot freezer for three to four days,” Andress said. The amount of food in the freezer also determines, in part, how long the food will stay frozen. The fuller the appliance, the longer the food will stay frozen while the power is off. If it’s packed full and remains closed, Andress said, the freezer will hold its temperature for about 48 hours. If it’s half-full, it will hold its temperature for about 24 hours. “The question of safety becomes a bigger issue the longer you’re without power,” she said. If the freezer temperature rises above 40 degrees, perishable foods should be thrown away. Different foods show specific signs of when they should be kept or discarded.Meat and poultry – If the freezer stays 40 degrees or lower, meat and poultry may be refrozen if it has no signs of spoilage, like bad odor and off color. Dispose of food that shows any sign of spoilage or if the freezer or food has reached more than 40 degrees. If you don’t have a thermometer, refreeze only meat or poultry that still contains ice crystals. If any foods in the refrigerator or freezer have come in contact with raw meat juices, throw them away. Shellfish, vegetables and cooked foods – If the freezer maintains a temperature of 40 degrees or below or if the food still has ice crystals, it may be refrozen; otherwise, discard it. If any vegetables show signs of spoilage, throw them out, regardless of temperature. Fruits – If the fruit doesn’t show signs of spoilage, you may safely refreeze it. Fruits have the least amount of quality damage during thawing. However, the texture won’t be the same after refreezing. Thawed fruits may be used in cooking or making jams, jellies or preserves. Ice cream – Throw out ice cream if it’s partially thawed. Freezer or ice cream temperatures higher than 40 degrees could cause ice cream to be unsafe. Creamed foods, puddings and cream pies – These products are safe to refreeze only if the freezer has stayed at 40 degrees or below. If it rises above 40, discard them. Breads, doughnuts, cookies, cakes and nuts – These items may be refrozen as long as they show no signs of mold growth. They typically refreeze better than most foods. While refrozen food is safe to eat if you follow these tips, you may need to offset some degree of quality loss by using it sooner than you may have originally planned. You can also choose to prepare the foods that have begun to thaw.”First make sure the food has maintained a temperature of 40 degrees or below. And use it within two to three days,” Andress said. “Treat it as if you had been deliberately thawing it in the refrigerator.” For more information on food safety topics, contact your local UGA Extension office at 1-800-ASK-UGA1.last_img read more

first_img Sonnett wins Goldin Award June 15, 2006 Regular News Miami lawyer Neal Sonnett’s 38-year career is packed with pubic service in working to improve the criminal justice system on local, state, and national levels.From serving on a panel to improve community confidence in the criminal justice system after Miami’s “McDuffie Riots” in 1980 to chairing the 2002-04 ABA Task Force on Treatment of Enemy Combatants and named the ABA’s official Observer for the Military Commission trials in Guantanamo, Sonnett is a nationally recognized trial lawyer with a social conscience.On Friday, June 23, during the The Florida Bar’s Annual Convention in Boca Raton, the Criminal Law Section will honor Sonnett with the Selig I. Goldin Memorial Award at the section’s noon to 2 p.m. luncheon.“Neal’s efforts in fighting against abuses in the criminal justice system have gone far beyond simply bar association and congressional activity,” Miguel de la O wrote in his seven-page nomination letter detailing his former law partner’s impressive career.“He has represented pro bono, dozens of lawyers who have received grand jury or trial subpoenas, have been threatened with restraining orders or forfeiture of legitimate fees, or have been threatened with contempt orders. Neal has also appeared as amicus curiae in a variety of important criminal justice cases in both federal district and circuit courts throughout the United States, and in the U.S. Supreme Court in United States v. Caplin & Drysdale and United States v. Monsanto, the attorney fee forfeiture case.”Sonnett has taught advanced federal criminal practice as an adjunct professor at the University of Miami School of Law, lectured at major CLE seminars across the country, and given keynote speeches at state bar associations and judicial conferences.“As his resume demonstrates, he has been a leader in community, civic, and charitable causes,” de la O continued. “One wonders how Neal maintains an active law practice while still devoting so much of his time to professional and pro bono activities, but he also maintains a national reputation as a top-notch criminal law lawyer.”The keynote speaker at the Selig I. Goldin Memorial Award Luncheon is Mark Curriden, a lawyer, award-winning author, and national legal writer for The Dallas Morning News. His 2000 book, Contempt of Court: A Turn-of-the-Century Lynching That Launched 100 Years of Federalism, delves into a case that, despite being buried and long-forgotten in legal history, played a significant role in the development of the law in the United States. It focuses on the case of Ed Johnson, a young black man falsely accused of raping a white woman. Two African-American lawyers heroically appeal his conviction and death sentence to the U.S. Supreme Court, but Johnson was lynched in Chattanooga, Tennessee.center_img Sonnett wins Goldin Awardlast_img read more

first_imgPersonnel of the Philippine National Police Highway Patrol Group inspect motorcycle drivers with back riders. The Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases mandates the installation of barriers for motorcycle back-riding couples as a safety measure against coronavirus. ABS-CBN NEWS Police Major Norberto Barniso, head of NOCPPO’s Police Community Relations Office, said all police stations in Negros Occidental must implement the order It was the Department of Interior and Local Government, Barniso said, that issued the directive. Although Barniso did not say how many were apprehended since its implementation, he stressed the fine for breaking the “no barrier, no back-riding policy” depends on the ordinance for this imposed by local government units.Barniso said for local governments that have yet to pass such ordinance, the police would let violators go with a warning for the meantime. But if drivers repeatedly violate the order, they will follow the national policy instead.center_img BY DOMINIQUE GABRIEL BAÑAGABACOLOD City – The Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office (NOCPPO) started apprehending motorcycle owners traveling with back-riders but without the installed physical barriers approved by the National Task Force against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The government has allowed couples to use motorcycles because of the lack of public transportation, provided they will install the barriers. Also allowed are live-in partners and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, provided they are living under one roof./PNlast_img read more

first_imgAt that point of the game, Nelson carried the play, out shooting Aldergrove by an 11-2 margin.But the Kodiaks found the equalizer less than a minute later.A Leaf turnover at center ice sprung two Kodiak players in on the Leaf defence allowing Stephen Ryan to deposit the puck past a surprised Brad Rebagliati in the Nelson nets.Nelson, a team averaging 4.75 goals per game during the regular season, pressed for the go-ahead goal.But the score remained tied for the next 49 minutes.Needing the win, Leaf coach Frank Maida pulled Rebagliati in favour of an extra attacker to try to find the winning goal.But after applying pressure in the Aldergrove end of the ice the puck squirted outside the Kodiak bluleline with Aaron Martin jumping on a loose biscut before drilling a wrist shot into the empty Nelson net.“This is heartbreaking,” said Rebagliati from outside a very somber Leaf dressing room.“We needed that win. We wanted to be in the final against BV . . . we came here to win the Cyclone. We’re the host team and it would have been great to win it in front of our home fans but we’re all pretty devastated right now.”The Leafs now meet Victoria Cougars at 10 a.m.Rebagliati realizes it’s going to be tough for the Leafs to get ready to meet the Cougars after failing to achieve their goal of the Cyclone Cup.“It’s definitely going to be tough,” Rebagliati admitted. “You want to be playing in that second game . . .. Having to wake up early after a disappointing loss like this is definitely tough but it’s something we’re going to have to do.”CYCLONE NOTES: To no one’s surprise, Jordan Liem was named MVP for Aldergrove in the contest. Nelson’s top player was Aaron Dunlap. . . .Former Leaf coach Simon Wheeldon joined Nelson Home Building game sponsor Randy and Sydney Horswill for the cermonial puck drop to start the game. Hopes of bringing a Cyclone Taylor Championship back to the Heritage City for the first time in more than 45 years came to a crashing halt for the Nelson Leafs Saturday night at the NDCC Arena.The Aldergrove Kodiaks rode the red-hot netminding of Jordan Liem to a 2-1 victory over the Leafs during the final round robin of the Cyclone Taylor Cup.The win allows the Kodiaks to advance into the Gold Medal game Sunday at 2:30 p.m. while the Leafs play for the bronze.“We came in with the mindset of we want to win a hockey game . . . I didn’t even mention (tie) to the players before the game,” said Kodiak skipper Brad Rihela when asked about playing for the single point.“We’re trying to gain as much momentum as we can after losing the opener and it’s always a focus for out club to try to get the two points.”Aldergrove entered the contest tied for second spot in tournament standings with Victoria Cougars — each with two points.Nelson was fourth with a single point, but could advance into the final against Beaver Valley Nitehawks.However, Nelson needed to win the game to leapfrog over both Aldergrove and Victoria.The Leafs got the start they wanted when Aaron Dunlap put the puck past Liem from close range midway through the first period.last_img read more

first_img(Visited 20 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Was there ever a time when humans were “pre-human”?  Recent finds are overturning assumptions about human ancestors.Antebellum:  Rewrite the story of ape and human brain evolution, advises Science Daily: the “unexpected” speedy expansion of the primate cerebellum was “up to six times faster than anticipated throughout the evolution of apes, including humans.”  So do we classify this story under mammalogy, anthropology, or physiology?  “In humans, the cerebellum contains about 70 billion neurons — four times more than in the neocortex,” Robert Barton of Durham University says.  “Nobody really knows what all these neurons are for, but they must be doing something important.”  That would seem to prompt an investigation based on intelligent design.  Prior to this, the neocortex was considered “the crowning achievement of evolution and the biological substrate of human mental prowess.”  One thing is clear: humans have archaeology; apes do not.  Barton remarked in Live Science‘s article that his findings “turn the story of brain evolution upside down.”  New Scientist got downright Kiplingesque with its panchreston, “Cerebellum’s growth spurt turned monkeys into humans.”Oldest human genome sequenced:  A bone of a modern human from western Siberia, said to date from 45,000 years ago, still had DNA in it.  The sequence, reported in Nature, messes up the old human evolution story, because even way out east, this individual had Neanderthal DNA mixed in his genome.  The interbreeding, scientists believe, must have happened even earlier, as much as 60,000 years ago or more.  This also means that individuals like this one were fully capable of migrating across continents, raising questions about why they didn’t start civilization for so long.  See Ewen Callaway’s news article on the story in Nature.Ten years of hobbit skull-scratching: In 2004, remains of diminutive humans were found in a cave on Flores Island, Indonesia.  They were named (after some dispute) Homo floresiensis, but popularly the “hobbits” because of their short stature.  Despite a decade of study, anthropologists are as confused by the skull, jaw, and various bones as they were then: they have both primitive and advanced traits, but are carbon-dated at 20,000 years old.  Are they examples of Homo erectus, or are they modern humans with a skull defect?  How did they get to this island across the sea?  Ewen Callaway in Nature tells the illustrated story with the major players, and also posted an interview with four key anthropologists.  “Small remains still pose big problems,” Chris Stringer writes in the same issue of Nature.The toolmaker:  “Ancient Stone Toolmaking Didn’t Just Spread Out of Africa with Humans,” writes Charles Q. Choi in Live Science. “An advanced way of crafting stone tools, once thought to have only originated in Africa, may have been invented elsewhere independently, according to a new study.”  This technology dates in the evolutionary scheme to some 200,000 to 300,000 years ago.  But if humans “invented” toolmaking, it didn’t evolve.  That makes it archaeology, not paleoanthropology.  Nature says “evolved independently among different groups of early humans in Eurasia and Africa,” but classifies the article under Archaeology.  The findings were published in Science Magazine.  See also summary on PhysOrg.It’s a long way from Australopithecus to Austria:  “Modern humans may have migrated into Austria 43,500 years ago” reads a headline on PhysOrg.  Logically, that implies they might not have, too, or that when they did, it was not 43,500 years ago but much sooner.  Look for the surprise phrase, “than previously thought.”  Here it is: based on some stone tools found in Austria, “The date of the artifacts represents the oldest well-documented occurrence of behaviorally modern humans in Europe and suggests contemporaneity with Neanderthals in other parts of Europe, showing that behaviorally modern humans and Neanderthals shared this region longer than previously thought.”  Question: did modern humans and Neanderthals have archaeology, or did Neanderthals have only paleoanthropology?  If the former, did the Neanderthals get it by intelligent design?Long way from Austria to the Andes:  A campsite of early Americans high in the Andes puts humans in South America a thousand years earlier than previously thought—12,800 years ago in the evolutionary timeline, reported Science Magazine.  They didn’t even have time to evolve high-altitude survival, but another question might be: what took them so long?  If humans made it to Siberia from Africa, and spread all across Europe and the far East, even traveling by boat, why didn’t they show up in the New World sooner?What’s the point?  The genome of an African man believed to have lived 2,300 years ago was sequenced, but then stories of what he did for a living and where he had migrated from twisted the genetic facts into a tale about evolution.  “What can DNA from the skeleton of a man who lived 2,330 years ago in the southernmost tip of Africa tell us about ourselves as humans?” Science Daily teases, to end with this quote from an evolutionist: “In this study, I believe we may have found an individual from a lineage that broke off early in modern human evolution and remained geographically isolated.”  Are they implying this African was inferior to the Europeans?  Any human living as recently as the times of the great empires was not evolving into anything.Now this is archaeology:  A 3,300 year old complex was discovered at Tel Burna in Israel, PhysOrg reported, complete with walls, utensils and objects that might have been associated with Baal worship often mentioned in the Bible.  In another PhysOrg entry, artifacts from an Iron Age chariot were found.  Objects included a curry comb probably used to groom the horses.  The science of archaeology is the study of remains created by intelligent agents for a purpose: i.e., it is a science of intelligent design.How did paleoanthropology become archaeology?  When did it become history?  What gave humans that extra spark that turned their brains into minds?  Evolutionists have no idea.  They just throw out absurd possibilities, like “Cerebellum’s growth spurt turned monkeys into humans”—(that has to be one of the stupidest headlines in recent memory).  What, did the cerebellum choose to have a growth spurt?  Is the human an accident of some monkey mutation?  Come on, you editors over there, use your brains and stop the nonsense!Evolutionary paleoanthropology is so mixed up, you can’t trust much of anything they say.  Every new story includes the clause, “these findings show that such-and-such was more something-or-other than previously thought.”  In other words, every previous “truth” of paleoanthropology was wrong.  What they believe today is vastly different from what was taught as fact just a few years ago (just one recent example: cave art story from 10/14/14).  Paleoanthropologists love the darkness of their storytelling imaginations rather than the light of logic and the world’s best written record of how man came to be.The absence of artifacts does not prove that humans who left their skeletal remains were incapable of making them.  The presence of simple stone tools does not prove that the creators were mentally incapable of doing better.  There can be other explanations, like isolation from technology of other groups, harsh conditions allowing nothing more than subsistence living, poverty, disease, or personal choices for simple living, like some ethic groups live today—living out their lives by hunting and gathering, leaving no art or literature.  All other evidence shows that humans have always been thinking, reasoning, sentient beings with minds capable of great things, given the right circumstances.  What is outrageously absurd is to believe that upright, migrating, fire-using humans with large brains spent hundreds of thousands of years sitting around in caves doing nothing.last_img read more
