8 Innovative Samosa Fillings to Make Snack Time a Lip-Smacking Affair

A traditionalsamosa is perhaps the most popular Indian appetiser or street food . Talking about samosas, the first thing that we visualise is fried, golden pyramids stuffed with spicy potatoes and green peas along with peanuts and raisins put in for good measure. Samosa is said to have originated in the Middle East (where it is known as sambosa), and was introduced to the Indian subcontinent by traders from central Asia. Today, they have become the most favourite and generic snack among Indians. We Indians love to give international food an Indian taste; that is why hamburgers…

It’s time to put food policy back on the table

During the farm crisis of the 1980s, an Iowa farmer asked if I knew the difference between a family farmer and a pigeon. When I said no, he delighted in explaining, “A pigeon can still make a deposit on a new John Deere.” That’s funny, except that it really isn’t. Worse, the bitter reality of the tractor joke is still true: The farm crisis has not gone away, though hundreds of thousands of farm families have. The economic devastation in farm country continues unabated as agribusiness profiteers, Wall Street speculators, urban…

Trump could gut public health funding at the exact time we need it most

We’re hearing a lot about the 22 million people who may lose their health insurance if the Affordable Care Act is repealed. But there’s another, quieter tragedy that could play out if the ACA is gutted: States could lose critical funding for public-health efforts like responding to outbreaks, vaccination programs, and anti-smoking and anti-obesity campaigns. When the ACA was enacted in 2010, the law established the Prevention and Public Health Fund, with an annual appropriation that began at $500 million in 2010. The goal of the fund was simple: boost…

What’ll she be wearing? Inaugural fashion, politics are intertwined this time

NEW YORK — What’ll she be wearing? It’s a question that fascinates fashion-watchers — and lots of others — every four years: Which designer will the new U.S. first lady choose to wear on Inauguration Day and, more importantly, on Inauguration Night? This year, as never before, the question is a loaded one. Dressing the first lady has long been considered a great honour for a designer — and a huge business boon. But in an industry that leaned heavily toward Hillary Clinton, a number of designers have indicated they…

CHASING TIME VOLUME 1: THE HUNT

Man has long had a passion for the hunt, his earliest encounters were to satiate his appetite for meat, it soon moved towards more carnal desires and he began his approach towards the fairer sex. As man evolved so did his expeditions, from the hunt for new civilisations to the search for meaning in our stars. From the wise who chase memories to the less judicious who lust for gold. As a man, I am both driven and enamoured by the hunt, and like those before me I am obsessive in chasing my vice. I run…

Time for National Policy on Education Please!

“Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country”-John F. Kennedy May I use this opportunity to thank God as well as to congratulate Ghanaians for the peaceful presidential and parliamentary elections this December. I will also say kudos to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for successfully wrestling power from the National Democratic Party (NDC). The NPP and NDC are the two political parties which have been governing Ghana one after the other for the past twenty-four years. However their different political…

It’s time to talk about the politics of the fashion industry

Think back on the year in fashion and it probably looks something like this: Beyoncé in Formation or the latex look she served at the Met Gala, everything Kim Kardashian, Rihanna in a Saint Laurent red heart-shaped fox fur coat or Demna Gvasalia’s debut as creative director of Balenciaga. Consumers are less likely to ponder how the political and economic instability caused by events like Donald Trump’s election victory or the shocking Brexit vote impacted spending patterns, or how a bombing in the Instanbul garment district affected fashion’s supply chain….

Gadget Story Time with EPIKGO hoverboard

I have a love-hate relationship with hoverboards. They make me happy when I ride them but they suck to fall off of lol. The other day I saw a guy carrying his newborn baby while riding a hoverboard and I started having a minor anxiety attack. EPIKGO sent me their hoverboard to try out and they couldn’t have picked a more qualified and handsome person. At one point I had my own hoverboard company, and dove in head first selling them and marketing them. I sold about 30, then shut it down….
