Classic American recipes to try this weekend for the Super Bowl

Pharma news - February 1, 2018 - 12:15pm

Not so long ago, if you asked someone in the UK if they were watching the Super Bowl, you'd probably have been met with a pretty blank expression. But American football is quickly growing in popularity - and if you want to join in on the fun, cooking classic American comfort food is the ideal way. The average American supposedly eats a staggering 2,400 calories during the Super Bowl, according to the country's Calorie Control Council, with junk foods such as pizza and "chips and dip" (that's crisps to you and me) the most popular. Chicken wings are also something of a national tradition, with a staggering 1.25 billion of them eating during the event - enough to stretch from CenturyLink Field in Seattle to the Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts 55 times, supposedly. The game starts at 11.30pm UK time and finishes at 3am, so if you want to ape our cousins across the ponds and tuck into an American-style feast, you'll be eating pretty late. But just in case, here are some classic American recipes to make your Super Bowl party go with a bang. Proper guacamole for nachos All-day pulled pork recipe Shrimp boil recipe Mississippi mud pie recipe American doughnut rings with three glazes The best cornbread Peanut butter and jam ice cream sandwiches Cheat's mac and cheese Southern-fried chicken and coleslaw Classic spicy chicken wings recipe Sticky spare ribs with maple syrup

Israel rift widens after controversial Holocaust bill passes through Polish parliament 

Pharma news - February 1, 2018 - 11:57am

Israel could recall its ambassador from Poland as a diplomatic row between the two countries escalated about Polish complicity in the Holocaust, reports claim. Polish parliament on Thursday passed a bill that could criminalise false accusations of Polish complicity in the Holocaust, which now awaits the signature of the president to become law.  It comes amid protests from the Israeli government and claims that it was an attempt to whitewash any apparent involvement of Poles in wartime crimes against Jews. Onet, a Polish news website, cited a source close to the Israeli foreign ministry saying that Anna Azari, Israel’s ambassador to Warsaw, would return home as an expression of her country’s anger over the passage of the legislation. Yisrael Katz, the Israeli transport minister, had called on Thursday for Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, to recall Ms Azari, while Emmanuel Nahshon, an Israeli foreign ministry spokesman said:  “Israel views with utmost gravity any attempt to challenge historical truth. A man walks in front of the monument to the Heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto who fought in the 1943 uprising Credit: AP Photo/Czarek Sokolowski “No law will change the facts,” the statement continued, adding that Israel “adamantly opposes” the bill. The controversy has led to a sharp deterioration in once-strong Polish-Israeli relations, and prompted fears it could embolden far-right elements in Poland. In Warsaw police cordoned off an area around the Israeli embassy to prevent fascist protests. As it stands the legislation allows for punishments of up to three years in prison for anybody found guilty of making false accusations of Polish responsibility for crimes committed by the Third Reich. It also outlaws the term “Polish camps” when referring to concentration and death camps operated by the Germans in Poland during the war. The clash over the bill has touched upon a sensitive and complicated issue in Poland. Many Poles, and in particular the government, feel the immense suffering the country endured the Nazi occupation is too often ignored abroad, or deliberately pushed aside by those wanting to focus on Polish anti-Semitism.

The United States has also flagged its concern over the legislation saying it “could undermine free speech and academic discourse”. Despite the criticism the Polish government appears unflinching in its support for the legislation. “We have to send a clear signal to the world that we won't allow for Poland to continue being insulted,” Patryk Jaki, a deputy justice minister, told reporters in parliament, before the vote. In a statement issued on Thursday the Polish foreign ministry also denied the legislation would inhibit “freedom of research and scholarship, and freedom of historical debate”. The bill now awaits the approval of Andrzej Duda, the Polish president. A former member of the governing Law and Justice party, Mr Duda has already spoken out in support of the bill so few expect him to use his constitutional right to veto it.

Alibaba beats forecasts again, takes stake in affiliate Ant

Pharma news - February 1, 2018 - 11:48am

The group, which also raised its forecast for the year ahead, will take a 33 percent stake in payment affiliate Ant Financial, an important step ahead of an expected initial public offering (IPO) by Ant, valued at $60 billion in 2016. "This is no secret, everybody knows that Ant Financial will IPO, and (buying the stake) is just something they had to do before that happens," Beijing-based analyst Li Chengdong said. The strong growth and the move to bind itself more closely with Ant — which operates hugely popular online payment system Alipay — comes as Alibaba looks to fend off rivals in its core e-commerce business that analysts expect will start to weigh on growth.
