When did it start raining food? (Cached) 23.4.2014 Asian Age: Life and Style
Slow-motion capture of food-rain videos are being used to raise funds by a charity that aids hunger-relief efforts. Online superstar Steve Karynal is subjecting himself to a delicious type of shower. He is showering himself with some yummy spaghetti, brownie batter, some milk and other messy foods. And the best part of his rather gastronomic shower is that he has captured it all in slow-motion doubling the maximum gross-out effect. According to Mashable, after the first shower, Kardynal’s friend Alex Negrete realised there was space for one more food-rain video and he added a stronger dosage of waffles, syrup, chicken and banana cream pie on his head. This is not as an act of wastage and nor does it intend to capture attention. It was done with a good intention. Kardynal and Negrete are using these videos to raise awareness for Action Against Hunger — a charity aiding in hunger relief efforts. A large part of the profit from the videos will go to charity too. They write, “After releasing these videos we ...

Prof M S Swaminathan, eminent agriculture scientist and chairperson of the M S Swaminathan Research Foundation, has called for biosafety along with promotion of biotechnology in the country. Biotechnology is often looked at with scepticism, but emphasis must be given on biotechnology with biosafety, in order to give a boost to agriculture in India, he said. Delivering the 48th convocation address of the University of Agriculture Sciences, Bangalore, on Sunday, he stressed the need for a Biosafety Regulatory Authority, which would complement the proposed Biotechnology Regulatory Authority for the country. "There are too many varieties in genetically modified crops. There have to be all-India co-ordinated trials for genetically modified crops," he said. With regard to the Food Security Bill, he observed that food security must also include nutrition security. "In spite of producing 270 million tonnes of foodgrain and 140 million tonnes of milk, there is malnutrition and low birth weight babies. Hence, ...

Mad at your spouse? Low blood sugar to blame (Cached) 16.4.2014 Asian Age: Newsmaker
Angry at your spouse? Have a snack before you snap! Lower levels of blood sugar may make married people angrier and more aggressive towards their spouses, a new study has found. Researchers found that people who had generally lower levels of glucose were willing to blast their spouses with unpleasant noises at a higher volume and for a longer time than those who had higher glucose levels. The study shows that hunger caused by low levels of blood glucose may play a role in marital arguments, confrontations and possibly even some domestic violence, said Brad Bushman, lead author of the study from the Ohio State University. Blood glucose levels can be brought up most quickly by eating carbohydrates or sugary foods. “People can relate to this idea that when they get hungry, they get cranky,” Bushman said. It even has a slang term: “hangry” (hungry + angry), researchers said. “We found that being hangry can affect our behaviour in a bad way, even in our most intimate relationships,” he said. The study ...
