If you like to cook…………

I love to cook, well, sometimes anyway, and I had been looking for some really good cookware. I ran through some ceramic and copper pans, which are OK, but then,I decided to try some stoneware pans, and after buying one made by Tramontina, and one by Starfrit I liked the results. Follow the directions on seasoning the pans, and you will have a low-cost, non stick pan that heats quickly, needs no oil to cook chicken, steaks, chops, or eggs and one that cleans very easily. Plus I really like the look of the stone. 

I decided to buy some more sizes and went to Amazon and a related item popped up. Ozeri, a German company makes what they call a Stone Earth Pan. It is aluminum, with a coating that is stone derived, it is called Stonehenge, no not THAT Stonehenge.

I own all three sizes, plus a larger saucepan they make

These pans rock! Seasoning them is easy. You apply a tiny bit of oil, olive oil, or coconut oil and simply rub it on the inside of the pan, and you are done. ( they recommend NOT using non-stick spray. Repeat that process before each use, and really, oil is not needed to cook veggies, meats, pork, etc. In the few months I have been using these, nothing sticks. These pans heat up quickly, and really, conduct heat well. Clean up? Use a paper towel or soft cloth and simply wipe the inside out after you are done cooking. After it cools down, wash with warm soapy water. I have not had to scrub, or scrape anything out of mine.

These pans are very well made. The handle is not going to start coming loose, it is well secured. 

So, if you want a high quality pan that heats up very quickly, distributes heat evenly, requires oil only if you desire, and cleans up in a snap, and is very affordable, check out Ozeri Stone Earth Pans.

Members of the Gore Cult of Climate Change working harder to indoctrinate our kids

Because critical thinking and exploring all the facts is, well, dangerous apparently

A fight is being waged to ensure the science behind global warming is taught in US schools as some states move to wipe it from the curriculum. Is the United States raising a new generation of climate-change deniers?

See, those evil climate-change deniers are waging a war on science

Brandie Freeman is a high school science teacher in the southern US state of Georgia. She recently opened her mailbox one morning to find something unpleasant lurking inside: A book, ostensibly a teaching guide, with the title “Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming.”

Oh the horrors! An unpleasant book, cleverly disguised as a “teaching guide” lurking, maybe even stalking poor Brandie Freeman!

Oh but there is more

It wasn’t entirely a surprise. Freeman had a heard about the publication – produced by the Heartland Institute, a climate-change denial group with links to the fossil fuel industry – from fellow teachers. The group has reportedly sent out 25,000 copies to teachers around the country in March, and plans to send out 200,000 in total.

AHA!!!!!!!! Wait did I use eight exclamation points? Of course I did, I must warn all of you that there might be “teaching guides”, with links to, the evil fossil fuel industry lurking in your mailbox, waiting to make you question climate change science. If you encounter such a thing lurking in your mailbox run away! And remember comrades that climate change science is settled! It is scientifically settled scientific science. But back to poor Brandie Freeman

Freeman says most of her colleagues in “more liberal” states chucked their copies “straight in the recycling bin.” But in Georgia, which she describes as “very conservative,” Freeman felt the book posed a real danger.

Danger, oh yes comrades! Dangerously dangerous danger! If students are allowed to question the scientifically scientific science of climate change, well they might do some research on the subject. Research leads to questions, which leads to more questions, and eventually to thinking!

“As soon as you just even open the door to your students that there is doubt among scientists – which there isn’t – then that allows them to have the seed planted that they can go to these climate-skeptic websites.”

See, there will be no thought seeds planted on Brandie Freeman’s watch!

Let’s rename Earth Day something more appropriate shall we?

How about money grubbing Leftists Day?

March for Science events to take place around the globe

Thousands of people are expected to attend March for Science events around the world to promote the understanding of science and defend it from various attacks, including U.S. government budget cuts.

The March for Science was dreamed up at the Women’s March on Washington, a day after U.S. President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January. Saturday is also Earth Day.

As Jo Nova explains

The March for Science is on Saturday.

Will J Grant and Rod Lambert struggled with the message behind the “March for Science” at The Conversation. We should march, they said a month ago, because “science is a human process”, which will be news to people who thought science was about evidence and reason instead. On Saturday they will be marching for the kind of science that is “passion” and “belief”. Don’t turn up thinking this is about the dispassionate Laws of Physics. You’ll be at the wrong rally.

The March seems to be fighting strawmen. It is supposedly about “Encouraging scientists to share their research” (as if scientists like to hide their research). We know they hide their data, their methods and their adjustments, but when the ABC turns up to interview them, they don’t seem to hide their opinions. They hide their declines but don’t hide their Nobel Prizes (even if they didn’t get them). Do they need encouragement?

Jo’s #1 conclusion about the march?

Those who can’t discover something useful have to march in the streets instead. The March is one big Pat-on-The-Back for the crusaders for taxpayer funds.

Ah taxpayer funds, that are enriching certain people . That is the “green” they care about

 

Media lies, and a death in Paris

Daniel Greenfield tells us a story that we need to hear. A story the corrupt media will not report because they are about protecting a narrative

Sarah Lucy Halimi was thrown out of the window of the third floor Paris apartment while she begged her Muslim killer to spare her life.

The 66-year-old director of an Orthodox Jewish nursery was woken from her sleep when she was violently beaten by her twenty something Muslim neighbor who then dragged her to the window.

She died on the street outside the building where she had lived for thirty years.

The killer had allegedly shouted, “Allahu Akbar”. In the tragic comedy of denial that every Islamic terrorism investigation inevitably becomes, the authorities are still hunting around for his motive.

Well, of course, we must not “jump to conclusions” right? And radical Muslims targeting a Jew? Not part of the narrative. Neither, of course is the reality of “no-go zones”

The street where Sarah Lucy’s broken body lay was the Rue de Vaucouleurs. It’s close to Belleville, a neighborhood whose name means “Beautiful town”, but which is better known these days as one of France’s “Zones Urbaines Sensibles” or “Sensitive Urban Zones.”

Or, without the euphemisms, parts of the beautiful town are really a “No Go Zone”. Or, if you prefer the official descriptions, a vibrant, colorful and multicultural community full of delightfully exotic foods.

Two years ago, smirking media reporters had a field day visiting Belleville to show that FOX News reports about No Go Zones in France were nonsense. “Look, at the couscous restaurants and colorful scarves, there’s nothing to worry about.”

Unless your delightfully multicultural Muslim neighbor decides to shove you through a window while shouting one of his religion’s exotic genocidal epithets about the Jews and all infidels.

Much more to read at the link. Greenfield is one of the best at exposing what the media ignores about what is happening in France, and other European nations. Go read it all, and understand that if the left and their insidious ideals of immigration, it can happen here as well.
