Re: “Barabicu and Ribsticks Take Different Approaches to Barbeque

A competition-BBQ friend of mine explained that the sous-vide technique is great for cooking low and slow, but not particularly great for BBQ. The reason is that once the meat's internal temperature reaches 122F [50C], the smoke will not penetrate the meat proteins anymore. Smoking your meats once their internal temp exceeds that point yields diminishing rates of return, i.e. you're wasting your precious smoking wood and it doesn't impart any more flavor to the meat

Re: “Documents: Cleveland Announces Disciplinary Charges Filed Against Officers in Tamir Rice Case

I read this article in The NY Times which totally vilified the officers involved by twisting the story into saying Tamir was playing with a toy pellet gun, he was reported to be probably juvenile with a probable toy gun. First off there is no such thing as a toy pellet gun, it was an actual pellet gun which looks very similar if not identical to an actual gun that fires live rounds. And to say he was probably juvenile with a possible fake gun leaves too many variables left for the police to determine in a split second. Is a juvenile with a gun any less dangerous than an adult with a gun? Impossible to determine in a split second if you're an officer who just had a firearm pointed at him. It's certainly tragic this young boy lost his life, but instead of vilifying the police, who we entrust to insure our safety, while putting their own lives on the line. Why don't we ask the question of where were the parents of Tamir? Why did they allow him to leave the house and play with a weapon, pellet gun or not? We as a country and especially those in the media need to stop placing the blame on the police. It only undermines their authority and makes their job that much more difficult to perform. In the world we live in today, now more than ever we need to support those who protect us.

Re: “Documents: Cleveland Announces Disciplinary Charges Filed Against Officers in Tamir Rice Case

Madeline, Garmback drove the cruiser right up next to the suspect with the gun. To be fair he gave Loehman little choice but to decide immediately if the suspect was pulling a gun. It's sad but the veteran made the move that ignited the situation. This doesn't mean I am pro-police or pro Loehman in this situation, just I believe Garmback was the biggest fool in the situation. If it had been a bad guy with a gun both officers could have been killed before they got out of the car.

Re: “City of Cleveland Assistant Law Director Arrested for Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct

Madeline, to commit the crime of driving under the influence, one must actually drive under the influence. Please direct me to any concrete evidence that Mr. Heltzel was driving under the influence. If there was any probable cause for a DUI arrest, the Cleveland Heights Police certainly would have arrested him for doing so. If you actually watch the video, you can see the police frantically looking for evidence that Mr. Heltzel was driving under the influence.

Favorable treatment? Did you watch the same video? Taking someone to lockup for a nothing-burger charge is not "favorable treatment," its sour grapes that the police weren't able to drum up a more serious charge.

Making a disgrace out of himself? How is calmly challenging the police over their basis for detaining him "making a disgrace of himself." You might not like Mr. Heltzel's tone, and I would even venture to guess that Mr. Heltzel himself would regret his snarky attitude, but his behavior is his far from "making a disgrace" of himself. The only parties that disgraced themselves in this instance is the CHPD by using their power create a blatantly embellished public record of a nothing-burger incident, thus allowing it to be published by a local media hungry for a story to fit their bumbling bureaucrat narrative. Someone's personal reputation is at stake here, while Mr. Heltzel may not have shown great judgment in listening to The Police in his parking lot, let's not act like we caught the state Attorney General getting fellatiated in a broom closet at the Ohio Supreme Court.

I commend the Scene for doing the right thing and issuing an update to the story to reflect that the video and the police report tell wildly different stories. Overall this is just run-of-the-mill shoddy police work. If there is any important takeaway from this story its that Mr. Heltzel is lucky that he is a white middle-class man, or this encounter could have had a much different ending.

And BTW, the Ohio Supreme Court has already ruled on Cleveland's residency requirement and found it unconstitutional so go pound sand.

Re: “Documents: Cleveland Announces Disciplinary Charges Filed Against Officers in Tamir Rice Case

Am I reading this correctly? Garmback faces discipline for his conduct at the Tamir Rice shooting, but Loehmann does not?

HITH is that possible?

Re: “City of Cleveland Assistant Law Director Arrested for Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct

Shame on Mr. Hetzel, for making a disgrace of himself. This is not a college kid; this is a (supposedly) responsible adult, with an important job. And shame on the Cleveland Heights police, for not testing his BAC and arresting him for DUI, which appears to be an act of favoritism.

Our city and county officials do not need to be excused when their conduct is illegal. We have seen where that kind of favoritism leads.

And BTW, Mr. Hetzel: the city pays your salary. It'd be gracious of you to choose to reside in it.

The one question that will never be answered (since it hammers into the hiring practices of the city): who recommended the pair of dolts for the jobs they were not qualified to hold.

Re: “Brad Pitt Loves Market Garden Beer

The leech is indeed used in medicine and like any medicine should be used with caution. I simply object to it's potential use on a vulnerable impressionable child who has no medical need. According to the NCBI

Infection is the most common complication of leeching and occurs in 2-36% of the patients[51]. Several bacterial strains have been encountered in these infections involving Aeromonas spp., Pseudomonas spp. and Vibrio spp. agent is the Gram-positive rod, Aeromonas hydrophila, which can cause pneumonia, mascular necrosis, flap failure and even septicaemia. Because A. hydrophila are resistant to penicillins and the first generation of cephalosporins, the treatment regimen of such infections should contain aminoglycosides, fluoroquinolones[16,21]. On the other hand, there is no reports on the leech therapy-transmitted diseases, even though, physicians who practice leeching are advised to use a leech once[17].

Many reports outlined local hypersensitivity conditions including itching, blister forming, ulcerative necrosis and even local tissue damage (flap death), which might result from the existence of some toxins in leech saliva[21]. Blood loss because of the prolonged hemorrhage and skin marks (scars) left by impaired healing of leech bites are also reported as postleeching complications[51].

Re: “Brad Pitt Loves Market Garden Beer

She's wrong on all fronts about leeches. Surgeons use them after reattaching limbs and fingers as they keep the circulation on the move by thinning out the blood. They do not cause blood borne infections and the area does not continue to bleed when their removed. A great little insect all around

Re: “City of Cleveland Assistant Law Director Arrested for Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct

Releasing that video really makes the Cleveland Heights police department look like asshats, huh? If this is the sort of thing they pull with a guy who's being smarmy at best but far from "combative and difficult to arrest," what else do you think they get away with every single day?

Shame on you Cleveland Heights. This video demonstrates exactly what's wrong with your department and so many other power-hungry, petty, and abusive policers around this country.

Any sensible municipality discovering such an egregious and blatant falsehood being propagated by their law enforcement officers should be deeply ashamed and launch an immediate investigation and punish the officers responsible for perjuring themselves on official government documents.

Re: “Brad Pitt Loves Market Garden Beer

I see people don't like my comment and so I apologize for my tough opinion. The truth is, some random guy walked through security on Angelina's movie set with a bucket of leeches cause that's just a normal random thing. So Angelina says to him, You know leeches are known to carry blood born diseases, they can cause anaphylactic shock, plus when removed one can bleed for 3 hours to 3 days. Not to mention just the creep factor, which even if you can find the suppressed article "Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic", no one can say that I have a bloodletting fetish. The fact is, we never even considered attaching leeches to a 9 year old, who even let you on this set? Oh wait, one attached itself to my hand... also, FYI our production department has no idea what attaching them to a 9 year old would cost us as a stunt upgrade, and we already have our costume department ready to spend hours attaching plastic ones because hey, CGI is for sissies. Or wait, is that props who attaches them? You do know I'm a card carrying faculty of the London School of Economics so I know a thing or two when it comes to brainstorming cost effective options. Add that I'm an Academy Award winning director... um.... Don't argue my logic. Hey, did anyone notice the true headline here: Tired of parenting? Drink Market Garden Beer and all your problems will be solved.
