How Sweet It Is

I know I know I know. Not only do I have a severe blood orange problem, I also have a coffee cake problem. A BIG ONE. It’s been only two months since I made this cranberry sauce coffee cake and I was craving one again. If only! Because. I wanted to cover it in a pink glaze. That’s the REAL reason that I can’t get over blood orange. It should come as no surprise because I often mention how I dont really care about orange flavored things. It’s not that I dislike them, it’s just never the first flavor I would choose. I feel slightly different about blood oranges as a whole because they are a bit sweeter and less orange-like than navel oranges, but when zested? It’s all the same thing. But the pink reigns me in. This recipe is from Joy’s sour cream cake and I really dont think I’ll ever use another coffee cake recipe. I swap yogurt for sour cream because I always have it on hand, but otherwise it's perfect.

Fashion Through the Years: Bangladesh highlights Bengali fashion from the 1940s through the millennium. In the early 1940s, fashion in the British Raj was largely motivated by the western world, finger waves and pin rolls in hairdos became popular. Both men and women wore the khadi while the Bengali style of draping a saree followed a modern style, with several pleats in the navel and the anchal on the left was considered more appropriate and elegant. In the 1950s, Bangladesh was still apart of East Pakistan but the ladies from this region followed the styles of prominent actresses from Bollywood like Nargis, with her high-necked silk blouse and pure chiffon sarees. The upper crust of society donned a combination of Victorian and Mughal styling like lehengas, embroidered gowns and long frilled skirts. In the 1960s, Bengali women were donning sleeveless blouses with chiffon sarees and body hugging shalwar-kurtis while the saree draping style changed from the traditional right to left anchal.

.. The Labour administration wants to stay in the single market. I think people are going to end up being realistic about, actually, do we want to be navel-gazing on this get on with things? There are companies, global companies, British companies making decisions based on what they need to keep people in jobs, which pays mortgages and keeps people in homes.

Ultimately, they have underscored the very foundation of Britain's unwritten constitution and as Abraham would say, these important principles, are inflexible. Our chief political correspondent Vicki Young is in Westminster. I am always conscious with my former as a Paris and Rome correspondent that we are guilty of a bit of navel-gazing in London. Let's Remain who are looking at this judgment today thinking this is the big moment, this would give Parliament the chance to block except and I think they will be disappointed.

When it comes to things like this, I believe that the complaint reflects the state of mind of the speaker, rather than the object. Why are people negative when athletes do well? Athletes work very hard for what they achieve, whether they be amateur or professional athletes. For most of them it is their passion. It looks like people don't want others to do well. People prefer to gaze at their navel rather than go do some activity, whether it be dragon boat racing or anything at all that helps them burn the calories they are storing from their nasi kandar from lunch. They don't like being unable to perform the way these athletes do, so better to burn 20-50 calories through formulating criticism than actually work hard like these athletes. For the athletes, amateur and professional, I would say keep up the good work! Work hard, play hard, rest well; your health insurance will probably be less affected in your old age than those sitting around trying to tear you down.

I told him maybe the problem was that he had expectations of me - my job was to cover him whatever my personal relationship with him was. Ed Koch, who I also covered, was a whole different phenomenon, someone my former bureau chief described as unavoidable for comment. Koch would have two or three interactions reporters each day, whether in formal press conferences or informal gatherings around a radiator in the City Hall rotunda. He would give as good as he took, but he understood the role of the press as an institution he could use to reach the citizenry as broadly as possible. Of course that was a time before the Internet and cable television fragmented journalism into self-reinforcing echo chambers. We are in a time when there is far too much navel gazing among the chattering classes, of which I am now one, and that chattering becomes more and more tied to the ideological and competitive silos we all spend too much time in.

Inevitably, there's always this displacement activity when there is a terrorist atrocity like this and people indulge in lots of navel-gazing about what their security apparatchiks could have done to forestall it.

Neither are true. Republicans have the right to govern but they dont have a mandate for their policies. If we dont start to make that point, each and every day, then we will wake up in a few months and find out Republicans have taken the country in a new direction. If we dont fight back against unfounded claims of a mandate, or navel-gazing that this election was a total rejection of our party, we will be wondering why the Republican agenda has gained momentum in just a few short months. I accept my role in what went wrong. Everyone should. Nothing written here is meant to deny that. We lost when we should have won. And its terrible. We should spend time analyzing and thinking and strategizing. We should figure out how to reconnect with voters we struggle to reach while energizing the coalition we have built. We should improve our infrastructure and be ready for the next one.

It became precisely the problem once the Panthers found themselves 1-4. Rivera should have tried to modulate his team's mood, but the former Riverboat Ron sounded more subdued and acted more risk averse than he did in prior years. Until he suddenly decided to risk both a loss and a national scandal by benching Newton against the Seahawks , that is. So the general manager, coaches and veterans were doing a little too much navel gazing from the start. Which brings us to Newton. Everyone brings a little baggage to any Newton conversation, so objectivity can be a little tricky. Even mundane criticism about footwork or decision making can sound a little shrill, like a plea for attention (good and bad) from the Internet. Defend Newton too hard, on the other hand, and you can sound naïve and oblivious. The guy who storms off in a huff after losses and gets benched by a purported "player's coach" for junior-varsity stuff has a hard time shaking slumps? How DARE you suggest those two things might be related? Newton's slumps are slumpier than those suffered by his peers.

CINCINNATI (AP) The surgeon who created the life-saving Heimlich maneuver for choking victims died early Saturday in Cincinnati. Dr. Henry Heimlich was 96. His son, Phil, said he died at Christ Hospital after suffering a heart attack earlier in the week. My father was a great man who saved many lives, said Heimlich, an attorney and former Hamilton County commissioner. He will be missed not only by his family but by all of humanity. Heimlich was director of surgery at Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati in 1974 when he devised the treatment for choking victims that made his name a household word. Rescuers using the procedure abruptly squeeze a victim's abdomen, pushing in and above the navel with the fist to create a flow of air from the lungs. That flow of air then can push objects out of the windpipe and prevent suffocation.

They think two strains branched off from a common ancestor around the time that a variola vaccine was created in the 1800s by Edward Jenner. They suggest the vaccine caused pressure on the smallpox virus, leading to mutations that separated it into two strains, variola major and variola minor. One caused more severe disease than the other. The time period when the strains branched apart, according to Poinar, coincides in history with human exploration, migration and colonization, activities that would have caused smallpox to spread around the world. Even though smallpox has been eradicated and is no longer a health threat, Poinar thinks it’s important to have a timeline for diseases to see how they evolve and progress, something that could be important for treatment and eradication. “I dont think these sorts of studies are navel gazing exercises,” said Poinar.

I was mostly concerned because it just seems quite unusual to have this massive bulging just below my breasts. Although it is below my navel as well, it is mostly in that area. That is what is concerning me. What I would say, Carol, what would define this for you is an ultrasound scan. Just have a look, it might have foot pain? Hello, Janet.

And less of it below my navel. Say you are carrying a lot of extra visceral fat, which is in and around the organs. Is that diet? Actually to get rid of visceral fat, exercise is more important. It doesn't need to be masses, 20 minutes of walking everyday at a pace that gets you a bit out of breath could really help to make your visceral fat plummet. Are you active, Carol? Do you go for walks? No, I am not half as active as I need to be.

.. I think the bigger problem is that Europeans are facing is that we are navel-gazing when the rest of the world is requiring a stronger response because it is naive and complete fiction to think that the challenges today, that a national response is enough. Thanks to Italians, the party celebrating the far right's defeat in Austria last night was over for some pretty much as soon it had begun.
