Back in 2002, news that acrylamide, a carcinogen in animals, had been found in some foods set off a bit of a panic. Now the FDA has issued a new warning on the chemical in food. But here's the puzzler: In the years since that first scare, the human studies haven't really backed those initial concerns about cancer.
Tlingit Code Talkers Receive Recognition | Alaska Public Media
Navajo code talkers were recognized more than a decade ago for their service in World War II. They used their Native language as a code that the enemy was never able to crack, but until recently, no one knew that Tlingits from Southeast Alaska also served as code talkers. Download Audio
A Boeing 747 jet was supposed to land at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita. Instead, it touched down at a small municipal airport across town. That was a problem: The runway there is much shorter than what the big jet typically needs on takeoff. But the plane is now on its way again.
The tornado that tore apart much of Washington, Ill., this weekend has triggered an outpouring of support. Among those helping is a nonprofit group manned by veterans, working at no cost to help weary residents. "We have a lot of vets, some of them have PTSD, and vets have so much suicide," says one. "It's healing to give back."
Less than two weeks ago, Jeff David Jr. learned that his father, Jeff David Sr. of Haines, served in the United States military as a Tlingit code talker. The follow-up surprise to that unknown piece of family history was that his father would be among those honored in Washington D.C. with the Congressional Medal of Honor.
David Jr. was one of 200 individual code talkers or their family members who received a silver medal at Wednesday’s ceremony. Each of the 33 tribes recognized received a gold medal. The medals were engraved with a design specific to each tribe.
One of the nation's largest school systems has been pushed to the brink of insolvency. Not long ago, Philadelphia was touted as a "laboratory of innovation," a promising model for urban public education. But something went wrong. So who is responsible for the district's descent into academic and financial ruin?
The disastrous rollout of HealthCare.gov is giving an otherwise wonky piece of legislation new momentum. It's called the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act, or FITARA, for short. And its two key sponsors are among the most unusual bedfellows in Congress.
Many organic farmers are hopping mad right now at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Their reason? Fertilizer. The FDA, as part of its overhaul of food safety regulations, wants to limit the use of animal manure, which organic farmers call a precious resource and a basis of their farming practices.
Shirts with big hearts are big right now, but despite the fad I actually think they are pretty cool.
I’ve had a few old cashmere sweaters awaiting crafting and this was the perfect short-attention-span craft: cut out a heart, sew it on a shirt.
My husband had the idea of sewing on the heart with contrasting embroidery thread. It not only gives it some “pop,” but it also adds more of a homemade touch.
Here’s what you’ll need:
An old sweater
A plain shirt
A large piece of paper or newspaper
Thin, double-sided fusible interfacing or Stitch Witchery
1. Make a heart template to your liking. I just folded an 11 x 17 piece of paper in half and cut out a heart shape.
2. Place your heart template on the sweater and use chalk to trace the shape. Cut your shape out of the sweater.
3. Figure out where you’d like the heart to be placed on your shirt. Cut strips of interfacing or Stitch Witchery and place them on the shirt. Lay your heart, right side up, on top of the strips and fiddle around to get everything centered and flat. The photo below just shows where I placed the Stitch Witchery. In reality, the strips should not be facing up.
4. Iron the heart according to interfacing instructions, so it fuses to the shirt. This way it won’t slip around when you’re sewing and you won’t have to worry about pins sticking you as you sew.
5. Cut a long piece of embroidery thread and straight stitch around the edge of the heart. Secure thread with a couple of knots on the inside when finished.
