Fact or Fiction: The Skinny on Dairy Fat

Share this:

If you’ve been watching the news lately, you’ve likely seen reports on the benefits of full fat dairy products in your diet. Recently, a scientific study was published associating higher fat dairy products with lowered incidence of diabetes. The short-short version: if you drink whole milk and eat whole fat cheese and yogurt, you have..

R2Go: A New Restaurant Style For Those On Go!

Share this:

Here in Indianapolis, Storefront Fooderies are continuing to be the trend.  If you remember, in March I told you about Regina Mehallick’s R2Go. I recently talked to the chef about the changes and upcoming events at her new shop– yes, she is still cooking some of the “R Bistro” delicious, seasonal, locally-grown foods!). When Regina came to Indianapolis in..

Credit NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Image by Reto Stöckli (land surface, shallow water, clouds). Enhancements by Robert Simmon (ocean color, compositing, 3D globes, animation). Data and technical support: MODIS Land Group; MODIS Science Data Support Team; MODIS Atmosphere Group; MODIS Ocean Group Additional data: USGS EROS Data Center (topography); USGS Terrestrial Remote Sensing Flagstaff Field Center (Antarctica); Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (city lights).
This spectacular “blue marble” image is the most detailed true-color image of the entire Earth to date. Using a collection of satellite-based observations, scientists and visualizers stitched together months of observations of the land surface, oceans, sea ice, and clouds into a seamless, true-color mosaic of every square kilometer (.386 square mile) of our planet. These images are freely available to educators, scientists, museums, and the public. This record includes preview images and links to full resolution versions up to 21,600 pixels across.
Much of the information contained in this image came from a single remote-sensing device-NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer, or MODIS. Flying over 700 km above the Earth onboard the Terra satellite, MODIS provides an integrated tool for observing a variety of terrestrial, oceanic, and atmospheric features of the Earth. The land and coastal ocean portions of these images are based on surface observations collected from June through September 2001 and combined, or composited, every eight days to compensate for clouds that might block the sensor’s view of the surface on any single day. Two different types of ocean data were used in these images: shallow water true color data, and global ocean color (or chlorophyll) data. Topographic shading is based on the GTOPO 30 elevation dataset compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey’s EROS Data Center. MODIS observations of polar sea ice were combined with observations of Antarctica made by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s AVHRR sensor—the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer. The cloud image is a composite of two days of imagery collected in visible light wavelengths and a third day of thermal infra-red imagery over the poles. Global city lights, derived from 9 months of observations from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program, are superimposed on a darkened land surface map.

Is Milk Environmentally Friendly?

Share this:

I am kind of a recycling nut. I feel horribly guilty any time I throw anything plastic away. Basically I feel like a baby polar bear was watching and judging me. Regardless, I like Earth Day. Earth Day is a good reminder of all the things we should be doing anyway–recycling, turning off lights, not..

Lactose Intolerant? Don’t Give Up!

Share this:

Recently I was asked what I would recommend to someone who was lactose intolerant. Presumably this person had been told they couldn’t have dairy because there is lactose in it. That’s a very thoughtful question and one that can’t be answered simply. First- a quick science lesson. Lactose is the sugar naturally found in milk..

Can You Fondue?

Of course you can! From the French verb meaning  “to melt”, when I hear the term “fondue”, here’s what I envision: you come into the ski lodge after an afternoon of zigging and zagging down snow covered slopes, your cheeks are all rosy, then sitting around a fireplace with a few good friends and a..

How NOT to Make a Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Warning – do not attempt to make a grilled cheese sandwich in the toaster!  Well, of course you wouldn’t do that, but when my brother, Jim, was 4 years old, he thought that’s how it should be done.  He knew what he liked, and he was ready to eat!  Keep in mind this was over..
