China is re-gifting America's coal by sending it right back to us 

That is right. We push a lot of American coal to China through Vancouver, Canada. China burns insane levels of coal and pollutes itself to catastrophic levels. The air currents bring the carbon and other nasty after products back a cross the Pacific Ocean

The high-carbon pollution comes right back to the western U.S.

Californians are hacking and coughing plenty as pollution violations happen in western cities. Researchers find that many of those violations originate in Asia. 

With such gifts as mercury, ozone, sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, black carbon and dust from China's growing desertification problems, the western U.S. is losing the gains we have made in reducing carbon and other emissions.

Boeing stops 787 deliveries after global aircraft grounding

Here is the problem. Incidents involving the highly advanced aircraft's two lithium-ion batteries caused a panic. One battery set off a smoke alarm in the cockpit. A battery ignited in a parked 787 at Boston's Logan Airport. 

Transportation secretary Ray LaHood, announced on Friday that a that 787s would not be allowed to fly until the authorities were “1,000 percent sure” they were safe. He said,

“Those planes aren’t flying now until we have a chance to examine the batteries. That seems to be where the problem is.” 

The government has not grounded an entire aircraft fleet since 1979, when a McDonnell Douglas DC-10 crashed. 

Consumers can expect a lengthy process since "highly advanced" usually means "unprecedented problems". The airworthiness directives for such an advanced battery system cannot even establish a baseline for satisfactory conditions because everything is too new to wide use and to the rigors of flying under real, long term conditions.

In other words, no one has an idea what is wrong or how to fix the problem, even if engineers are getting closer to answers.

The New York Times has an in-depth article.

What is "Celebrity Swatting" and how is it getting out of  control?

No one can be accused of admiring the Khardasian clan too much, but they certainly did not deserve to have their home swarmed by cops. Tom Cruise was "swatted" yesterday, when someone placed a 911 call to Beverly Hills cops.

Another incident happened when a 911 caller claimed someone was shot inside the Khardasian house in Hidden Hills, Ca. The caller added that armed people were still inside. 

 Five officers were on site to lock down the entire street. According to TMZ, Bruce Jenner and Khardasians Kris, Kylie and Kendall were ordered out of the house until it could be searched. 

Fortunately, Tom Cruise was not at home when police arrived for his Swatting incident. 

A southern California twelve year old was arrested On December 10, 2012 for earlier swatting incidents involving Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber. Even more swatting incidents were associated with that individual, according to TMZ.

How to do any kind of Schnitzel: Pork, Beef, Chicken or Fish

The Meat

Use lean pork, large chicken or turkey breasts or slices of a large firm fish
The meat should be evenly sliced or pounded to about 1/2 inch thick

Season the meat with salt and pepper
OR:  Marinate the meat overnight in garlic, onion, seasonings and a dash of any acid like balsamic vinegar or citrus juice.

This cook will use crackers, pankow crumbs or even crushed potato chips...whatever's handy!

The Breading

Prepare about three feet of work space.
Lay out four plates or shallow pans.
First plate: Put 1-2 large well beaten eggs.
Second plate: Put 1-2 cups of flour that has been seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika.

Third plate: Put 1-2 cups of breadcrumbs, pankow crumbs or crushed Ritz Crackers

Fourth plate: Is as clean plate for the finished schnitzels!

How to do the breading

1: Use tongs or wear plastic gloves 

2. Dip the meat in the egg, making sure to coat it well. 
3. Dredge the meat in the flour to coat it well
4: Go back to the egg and coat the floured meat.

5: Dip the coated, floured meat in the crumbs

6: place the finished schnitzel on the final plate.

Cover the schnitzels in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour. This allows the coating to set.

Use Canola or vegetable oil that stand up to heat. 

Remember that oil penetration causes greasy fried foods.

Heat about 3/4 inch of oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 177 degrees Celsius.

Let the schnitzels sit for a while. Cold schnitzels will lower the oil temp. 

Add the schnitzels. The oil will rise, so be careful.

Don't overcrowd the pan.

Fry until the schnitzel is a lovely, golden brown. 

Chicken and pork need 3-5 minutes on each side.

Test fry a schnitzel, then check with a meat thermometer. Chicken or pork should be about 180 degrees at the center and juices should be clear.

Enjoy the schnitzels with a dash of lemon, a mushroom sauce or with gravy! 

With salad, creamy mashed potatoes and veggies, you will enjoy a hearty, healthy meal.

Schnitzels are a global, universal food. Try Asian, Mexican, African and other seasonings, sauces and marinades.
