Melbourne foodie Ashley Alexander, who goes through Gather and Feast online, has shared her recipe for a delicious toastie filled with greens and herbs

Ashley starts by cutting the broccolini and zucchini into small, thin pieces and roughly chopping a handful of fresh basil leaves and arugula.

She then heats a skillet over medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil and sauté the greens with chopped garlic and the zest of half a lemon.

After about two to three minutes on the heat, the greens start to look vibrant and Ashley removes them from the heat and transfers the mixture to a bowl.

  • A Nigerian killer queen is trending online because of the very interesting way she chose to cook noodles
  • In the viral video, the noodles prepared by the killer queen looked like dried tapioca, even though there were so many large chunks of pepper
  • However, voices heard in the video still hailed her for her wonderful cooking skills and also said she was a wife.

Pepper is meant to be mixed before it can be added to food. But obviously, a Nigerian slay queen seen on a viral video sees things differently: she cooks with her whole pepper, without grinding.

The murderous queen prepared a noodle dish that drew big laughs from those around her. But we didn’t know if it was the first time she ventured into the kitchen.

The noodles had pepper thrown in whole. Photo credit: @instabog9ja

In the video, the pot of noodles with the red pepper balls could be seen falling like stones the same way they were when they arrived from the farm.

Mixed reactions

Hilarious reactions followed the video as soon as it was shared on Instagram by @instablog9ja. But it looks like the lady’s approach might be a new way to prepare noodles. Someone like @ada_ohb shared an interesting perspective:

“You relax, that’s how I even made my noodles tonight, the pepper will be removed when the food is cooked. I learned that from my Cameroonian friends.”

Yet someone else thinks the lady knows how to cook and is just looking for attention. @a_jiro9 wrote in the comments section:

“I feel like she can cook, it’s just for the gram, no one can be that insane.”

But however it goes, @nasaadaeze thinks cooking skills are a good thing to have:

“I’m not talking about saying any baby way to marry my son na pap and fried egg, I’m talking about testing her in the cooking zone.”

Reo Varnado, owner of Portland barbecue restaurant Reo’s Ribs, died Friday night, his family announced.

Varnado, who was Snoop Dogg’s uncle and was known for accompanying the rapper on stage and on television, died at 10:30 p.m. Friday, his brother, Ricky Varnado, said in a public Facebook post Saturday morning. His cause of death is unknown.

Family and friends took to social media to mourn Varnado’s death over the weekend, posting photos from local events and videos of his performances over the years.

In addition to cooking Southern-style barbecue, Varnado was also a singer, performing with his gospel group The Beyonds. He was also featured on the Doggy Style All Stars’ 2002 song “Just Get Carried Away”, produced and released by Snoop Dogg.

Snoop Dogg posted several posts about his uncle on Instagram over the weekend, sharing a video from the rib restaurant in Varnado that appeared on the rapper’s short-lived “Dogg After Dark” series on MTV. He also shared a photo with Varnado and Martha Stewart, taken when the two appeared on the VH1 show “Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,” and a 2015 video from a Hollywood concert where Varnado was called on stage to sing a song that Snoop Dogg said the two wrote together.

” We will miss you. Thank you for loving me and the whole world, you were a blessing. Snoop Dogg wrote on Saturday.

Reo’s Ribs opened in 1999 along the Tualatin Valley Highway outside of Portland, where Varnado’s Mississippi-style barbecue was mentioned by Gourmet magazine, which said its ribs were “weighted down with meat which pulls bone into thick ribbons”.

The business, a partnership between Varnado and Myra Girod, moved to a strip mall on Southwest Macadam Avenue in 2010 and moved again to a Hollywood neighborhood storefront in 2015.

Reo’s Ribs has garnered national attention thanks to visits and endorsements from Snoop Dogg, but the business has also faced several challenges over the years. In 2010, neighbors in southwest Portland complained about smoke they said was billowing from the restaurant into their homes. The northeast Portland location was damaged by fires in 2017 and 2020 – the latter was determined to be arson, for which a woman was charged.

After the 2017 fire, Varnado opened up in a video he posted on social media, in which he spoke about the fire and the racism he faced at the restaurant.

“It’s very difficult. It’s just sad, man, that you put your heart and soul into something that you love in life, that you love,” Varnado said.

TikTok: A place where we can watch cooking videos, silly dance moves, and, apparently, where people can post unreliable threats of school violence. Last month, dozens of school districts across the country announced their closures due to a wave of anonymous TikTok videos citing gunfire and bomb threats.

It is incredibly dangerous for our children, our schools, our parents, our teachers and the community. Now more than ever, it’s time for social media companies like TikTok to be held accountable for the content posted on their site.

TikTok has become one of the most popular social media platforms of this generation. It was launched in 2016 by Chinese tech company ByteDance and allows users to create, watch, and share short videos. At the end of 2021, the app had around 1 billion active users. Yes, because 1 in 7 people worldwide use TikTok. That’s a lot of people.

Since this platform is so huge, it can be difficult to regulate what gets released. Currently, TikTok has a US-based security team, and all uploaded content goes through a machine that inspects for policy violations. This is then reviewed by a human, a member of the app’s security team, before being posted. More recently, TikTok has used software that can automatically remove any videos that may violate its guidelines.

It is clear that this software is not enough.

School districts from Texas to Michigan issued warnings, canceled classes and increased security presence in mid-December due to viral TikTok video warning of impending bombing or shooting . Even the Austin ISD Police Department stepped up security and monitored the national social media trend in late December, in a bid to prevent potential harm. Clearly, threats of school violence have passed through the security software, and this is not the first time.

TikTok and other social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have come under fire for spreading harmful content among children and young adults. In 2021, teachers had to ask TikTok to step in when a challenge to “slap the teacher” went viral. Two years ago, 4,000 people watched a live broadcast of the mass killings posted on Facebook, which quickly spread across the Internet and has been reposted countless times.

In response to this dangerous and jarring content, the social media giants claim to continue to tighten their security measures. I am not so sure.

A spokesperson for TikTok responded to alleged threats of school violence, tweeting that “… we are working with law enforcement to review warnings about potential violence in schools, even though we don’t. found no evidence of such threats originating or spreading through TikTok. “

These are empty and broken promises. As dangerous content continues to find its way through the so-called security measures that are in place in social media behemoths, we will continue to see issues like threats to school arise. We will continue to see hate speech, incitement to violence and other toxic content affecting our children and endangering our communities.

As such, it’s time for the big social media companies to be held accountable.

Currently, under section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, platforms like TikTok, Twitter, and Facebook are not treated as publishers and are not technically responsible for the content that users post. The law was created in 1996 and was designed to protect websites from a lawsuit if a user posts something illegal. Joe Biden suggested revoking Section 230 entirely, which would be a good start. The administration could act by removing legal immunity from prosecution for social media giants, especially those who refuse to be proactive in removing dangerous content.

Enough is enough. It’s time to pass legislation that states that social media networks can be held liable for damage caused by false information, harmful content and incitement to violence that is shared on their platforms.

We don’t need another video inviting or suggesting school violence. Time is running out, TikTok.

EVERETT – More people than ever in Snohomish County are hospitalized with COVID-19, the Snohomish Health District announced Friday.

Hospitalizations have more than quadrupled since Christmas Eve.

As of December 24, there were 34 hospital beds in the county dedicated to patients with COVID.

As of Friday, 143 people were hospitalized with the virus.

The previous record was 128, in December 2020.

In the county and state, agencies are taking action to survive a new wave of the pandemic. In a pre-recorded video, local doctors urged people to be extra careful.

“You may have heard that omicron causes milder disease,” said Dr. Jay Cook, chief medical officer of Providence Regional Medical Center Everett. “However, it is so contagious that it is already flooding our emergency departments, our hospitals and the entire healthcare system.”

In the week ending New Years Day, more than 5,500 people tested positive for COVID-19, according to the health district. Thanks to omicron, the doctors’ project, the historic increase in the number of cases will continue to increase in the coming weeks.

The tests did not follow the request. Appointments with most providers take a week or two, and people wait for hours at walk-in clinics. So many cars have lined up at a site in Everett, causing disruption in the neighborhood, that the city is looking to relocate it.

Hospitals are again canceling elective procedures and restricting visits. Health officials advise people to book emergency care or emergency room visits only for emergencies. (But don’t delay if there’s a real medical emergency.) People with mild symptoms of COVID are urged to stay home. Telehealth visits are encouraged.

“We keep asking them more and more,” County health officer Dr Chris Spitters said in a statement. “They are being taken out of service and we are on the verge of a very dangerous situation.”

Meanwhile, State Senator John Lovick D-Mill Creek announced on Friday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 after taking a precautionary test before the legislative session. In a statement, he described his symptoms as “very mild”.

“I’m fine, I have a bit of a cold, but other than that I feel great,” said Lovick, 70. “One thing is certain, I am relieved to be both vaccinated and boosted.”

“I wear my mask, wash my hands about 20 times a day and still have it,” her statement continued. “This virus is not a problem and we all need to do our part to protect ourselves and each other. ”

The legislative session begins Monday. For the second year in a row, all hearings and ground sessions will be virtual, due to concerns about COVID. This will be Lovick’s first time as a state senator. The former representative was appointed to the post on December 6.

Earlier this week, Snohomish County Director Dave Somers announced he had contracted the virus.

Courts statewide are taking precautions. In Snohomish County, the Everett District Court has stayed jury trials until January 31. Likewise, neighboring counties of Skagit, King and Pierce have suspended felony trials.

In a letter sent to presiding justices on Wednesday, Snohomish County District Attorney Adam Cornell asked the Superior Court to do the same. He noted that an increasing number of his employees have contracted or have been exposed to COVID-19. He believes the same is happening in the public defender’s office, he wrote.

“The health and safety of members of our legal and judicial community, as well as that of their families and loved ones, are increasingly threatened as the pandemic rages on,” he wrote. “Jury trials only compound the threat of infection and spread.”

Trials are going as planned so far, but it’s a daily conversation, Superior Court Administrator Andrew Somers said.

“Things are very fluid,” he said.

And while most of the county’s Kindergarten to Grade 12 students have resumed in-person learning, school districts are warning that a sudden pivot to distance learning may be possible.

In a letter sent to families on Friday, Everett Public Schools Superintendent Ian Saltzman said a transition to distance learning would be based on direction from health officials or the district’s ability to dispose sufficient staff. If a school closes, it will be closed for 10 calendar days, he wrote. High school athletics would continue, but all other extracurricular activities would cease.

“I want to stress that right now we are not talking about a district-wide closure, but whether an individual school is to close,” Saltzman wrote. “There are no plans to implement a district-wide closure. ”

As for how to navigate life with the fast-spreading omicron variant, doctors are delivering the same message they’ve delivered over and over again: get the shot, get a booster, and hide in the presence of other people. , preferably with a better face coatings like an N95 or KN95.

And don’t lower your mask to talk to people.

“It defeats the purpose,” said Dr Connie Davis of Skagit Regional Health in the pre-recorded video.

Dr Patrick Gemperline, of the SeaMar Community Health Center, also urged people to avoid crowds and unnecessary travel. If you are meeting with other people, “be brief,” he said in the video, and make sure the area is well ventilated.

“If you feel bad, even a little, stay home,” he said.

For food producers or even restaurants, building a business website using Squarespace, WordPress, or Shopify is a successful and straightforward process. For wine brands, there are many options for Direct to Consumer Selling (DTC) e-commerce platforms.

And with more options for selling via websites, brands that are not related to alcohol or cannabis can market these products on Instagram / Facebook and link to products in Instagram bios or TikTok. (I don’t recommend using an organic social media integrator.)

Digital trend n ° 5: Marketing automation

With the rise of e-commerce and walk-in cellar tours, marketing automation can help brands maintain constant contact with their customers. Implementing automations like messaging workflows, retargeting, analytics, and social media scheduling takes a bit of time, but once you’ve got them up and running you can focus on other parts of your business and continue to grow.

“Wineries have been able to drive growth throughout 2020 by dedicating resources to digital marketing and e-commerce. Now that the wineries have reopened, there are a lot of other priorities to manage, so those who can automate these activities will be well positioned for the future, ”said Andrea Smalling, Marketing Director of WineDirect.

When it comes to in-person automation, QR codes are here to stay. Some trend-setters have been using QR codes for over 10 years, but they didn’t really become a big part of mainstream marketing efforts until phones could use them natively in the app’s app. camera.

Now, due to social distancing during the pandemic, QR codes can be found in many places. Some restaurants even take marketing automation a step further by automating the entire buying process, where customers can purchase food or wine through an app and have it delivered right to their table.

Digital trend n ° 6: Analysis of consumer data

When I spoke to Andrea, we discussed that data is the key to achieving personalized digital communications.

“We all get so much communication these days, by email, SMS, all social media, everywhere! People log out (and unsubscribe!) If the communication seems irrelevant or cold. But receiving any type of communication that seems tailor-made for you (reference to past purchases, for example) can be so much more motivating and make you feel good about your purchase.

Digital data through a single dashboard like Whatagraph that captures data from each social media platform, as well as digital advertising platforms, can help brands take a holistic look at what is working and what businesses are doing. must correct.

WineDirect also has a unique platform that gives its e-commerce and Wine Club customers the ability to easily see key trends and growth opportunities to make those personalized, wine industry-specific connections.

Digital Trend # 7: Continued Attention to Email Marketing

In the past, wineries or restaurants had a physical sign-up sheet for their mailing lists. Now the options are endless for capturing addresses. (Learn more about creating a landing page that makes sense for your business.)

“With updated privacy settings and a limited ability to track and collect consumer behavior, it will be even more important to ‘own’ your online contacts and communicate directly with them. We’ll see brands and retailers embrace their mailing lists when they realize how useful it is to reach out to their audience directly, without expecting an algorithm to be in their favor, ”says Alison Ball.

Digital Trend # 8: Caring About People and The Ingredients In Products

Customers want transparency in which brands they choose to give their money to, and brands that use social media platforms to share their message have an easier time finding an audience that cares about the same issues.

However, it’s not just about sharing a story or a message. Laurie d’Outshinery noted, “The wine industry is ready for more interactive visuals. Wineries will embed QR codes and other elements on labels that put information in the hands of the customer.

“Customers want to see more visibility on back labels, including the values ​​and certifications that may appear there. Think about sustainability efforts, B Corp status, women, etc. She said. By incorporating these values ​​into all aspects of your digital marketing (and in person), customers can make informed decisions about which brands they want to support.

As the economy opens again, marketers face a landscape disrupted by a pandemic, new business models and hybrid events (in person and live), to name a few. . Using the data and marketing automation tools provided by digital platforms, brands can focus on telling their story to customers in a personalized way using lifestyle images, videos, email marketing, etc.

By taking these eight trends into account, businesses can stay ahead of the curve.

CHICAGO (CBS) – A video shows a victim driven to his death. A father in a playground desperately dials 911. The distinctive getaway car.

An unexpected crime scene

It was a hot August day – children were rushing to the playground, a family was looking for shade under a gazebo, people were picnicking all over the park.

The typical summer festivities unfolded until two men walked down a wooded path, just 100 yards from where these children and families frolic.

Shortly after the two men entered the woods, people could hear one of the men screaming for help.

But before park visitors or authorities could intervene, Chris Urbina, 52, was brutally stabbed to death in a Fullerton forest preserve.

The murder was so cruelly executed that it stunned even the best detectives in Cook County.

“I have seen a lot of different murders in my life,” Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart said. “It was particularly violent.”

“It was shocking,” said Cook County Detective Ginny Georgantas.

“An incredible individual”

Urbina’s unexpected death shattered the lives of her family and friends.

“He was an incredible individual. He was always smiling, ”said Bob Staley, Urbina’s friend for 30 years. “He always wanted to make sure you had a good time.

“He was the kind of guy to give you the shirt off your back,” said Keven Pipkens, another of Urbina’s longtime friends.

Urbina was also a Ford white collar, a Cubs fan, and most of all, he loved his elderly mother.

“They were best friends,” Staley said.

On August 8, 2020, the last thing Mr. Urbina did was cook his mother’s breakfast. Then, without telling him where he was going, he drove off with an unidentified man who will later murder him.

Putting the puzzle together

Detective Georgantas has been tasked with finding Urbina’s killer.

She reviewed nearly 3,000 surveillance clips from neighboring residences and businesses to track the offender.

Never-before-seen videos show Urbina and the suspect stopping in the forest reserve, passing the playground and the suspect leading the way into the woods.

Then, twelve minutes later, the suspect comes out of the woods – alone.

“It’s very daring,” Detective Georgantas said. “Noon… people all around. “

What makes this gruesome murder even more frightening are the footage of the suspect leaving the forest reserve unhurried and seemingly phased.

A disturbed 911 caller noted that the suspect’s walk was “relaxed” and “slow.” And after sitting in his car for almost a minute, he finally drives off.

“She is a person who clearly has no qualms about committing acts of violence anytime and anywhere,” Sheriff Dart said.

Sheriff Dart has been working with detectives on this case for over a year. They hope that the search for the distinctive getaway vehicle will help them identify an offender.

They believe the offender’s car is a spruce green Grand Marquis. It has a noticeable dent in the rear passenger side door, the emblem on the front grille is missing, and there is no license plate.

Detectives scanned and gathered surveillance footage from neighboring residences and businesses to follow the suspect’s escape route for two miles.

After exiting the forest preserve on Ditka Drive, the suspect then traveled east on Grand Avenue, then turned around and ended up on Indian Boundary Road. He swerves in some alleys and comes back on Grand Avenue. The car then turns south on Westbrook Drive and then east on Fullerton Avenue. Final footage detectives were able to pull together shows him turning southbound on 77th Court in Elmwood Park.

Route taken by the suspect after leaving the forest reserve

Detectives couldn’t find any more video of the car, or it was recorded – a turn that ultimately cooled the matter down.

“He’s a dangerous person who needs to be caught,” Detective Georgantas said. “We need the public’s help.

The casual daytime killer now has the best look in Cook County, for the ‘who’.

Detectives say any information, no matter how trivial it may seem, can be crucial to solving this case.

the Cook County Crime Stoppers are offering a reward of up to $ 1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the offender in this case. Those with information can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-535-STOP. They can also contact Cook County Sheriff’s Police detectives at 708-865-4896.

  • Jennifer Garner shared a now viral video of a Christmas cooking incident on her Instagram account.
  • Garner had attempted to make Ina Garten’s recipe for beef bourguignon.
  • She said she almost “set the kitchen on fire” after adding double the brandy in the recipe.

Jennifer Garner almost set her kitchen on fire by making an Ina Garten recipe for Christmas.

The “13 Going on 30” star shared the latest episode of her Instagram series “Pretend Cooking Show”, in which she allows her 11.8 million followers to watch her cook her favorite meals. Garner revealed on Wednesday that she suffered a setback while making Ina Garten’s Beef Bourguignon.

“I don’t know when I started making @inagarten beef bourguignon (from Barefoot in Paris) for Christmas,” Garner, 49, wrote in the caption. “It was long enough ago that the smell of this perfect stew made me happy, comfortable and relaxed.”

In the video, Garner walks through the kitchen as she explains to the audience every step – and mistake – she took to prepare the dish. Garner said she wanted to double the recipe, but that meant she also had to double down on a main ingredient: brandy.

“This, dear reader, is Cognac,” Garner said to the camera. “Remember, we are doubling this recipe. I don’t know if we need all of this.”

Garner then poured the brandy into the pot and attempted to ignite the liquid to burn off the alcohol, but a wall of fire ignited and scuffed the top of his oven hood.

“Thousand sorry. Don’t. Double up. The. Cognac,” Garner said to the camera. “Can you believe that just happened?” It was crazy ! ”

Garner also joked about the incident in the video caption, writing, “Ina would never do it!”

Thankfully, the Barefoot Countess praised Garner in the comments section and admitted that she also occasionally slipped.

“This is my favorite !!! And I almost set the kitchen on fire every time! Happy New Year !!! I love you,” wrote Garten, 73.

Garner started her cooking simulation show in 2017. She told The Hollywood Reporter that the Instagram show has caused “a slew of demands from the industry to make it a real one.”

Most recently, Garner grabbed the headlines after Ben Affleck made controversial comments about their previous 13-year marriage. Affleck suggested he was unhappy in the relationship and turned to heavy drinking as a way to cope.

Affleck then spoke out against the “clickbait” articles and in an appearance Thursday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” argued that the media misunderstood what he said.

The former couple married in 2005 before divorcing in 2018 after having three children: Violet, 16, Séraphine, 12 and Samuel, 9.
