Hotel recycles 500kg of food waste into fertiliser within 24 hours using food-waste digester, Singapore News & Top Stories – The Straits Times

Savings of $100K in one year – that’s cool!

“Only 14 per cent of food waste is recycled so WMRAS supports efforts to convert food waste to either compost or water for discharge. This is to make our living environment more sustainable because even if we incinerate food waste, it will produce ash for the Semakau landfill which will run out of space by 2035 to 2040,” said Mr Edwin Pang, executive director of WMRAS

New West 57th Street Landmark Movie Theater Location, With Fancy Seats And A Bar, Is Now Open: Gothamist

Looks like combining F&B with cinema is the direction movie theaters are headed to compete with Netflix & other streaming sites.

I have to admit – this looks pretty appealing. Do they guarantee the person behind me will keep their talking & snacking noise to a minimum? #petpeeve

We took a look at the space earlier this week and found it to be, as promised, in a similar stratosphere as other amenity-rich theaters, like Alamo Drafthouse and iPic. While there’s no in-theater food and drink ordering, there’s a curated array of concessions (Melt Ice Cream Sandwiches, Sweet & Sara Vegan Smores, Bronx Pretzel, etc.) plus a bar with craft beers, wine and cocktails and fare like salads, tacos and sliders.

The 10 Worst Foods For Your Heart – Time Magazine

As the wife of a heart-attack survivor, I’m always trying to keep up with what the most recent science is regarding nutrition.  Suffice it to say, this is not easy as there are a million different opinions out there and most of them can cite this study or that personal experience as proof.  I try to stay pretty mainstream with what I follow, but it’s scary to wonder if you are doing the right thing or not.

However, that being said, most of what appears in this article regarding these ten foods seems to be pretty much agreed upon across the board.

If heart disease runs in your family, please stay on top of info like this.  It’s so important to watch what we consume and I personally think most of us often eat mindlessly and really don’t give enough credence to the effect simple nutrition has on our bodies.  My main advice that I now follow:  EAT REAL FOOD  I try to avoid any and all processed or convenience food.  But read this article & others like it for yourself, and please – treat your bodies well.  🙂

The top 10 foods listed in this article are:

  • Fast-food burgers
  • Processed and cured meats
  • Deep-fried foods
  • Candy
  • Soft drinks and sugar-sweetened juices
  • Sugary cereals
  • Cookies and pastries
  • Margarine
  • Meat-lovers pizza
  • Diet soda

But please, read the article & get the details – it’s not quite as cut-and-dry as listing the ten, you need to understand the nuances behind each one.
