One sick worker is to blame for Chipotle's $1B value loss #FACTS JULY 26, 2017. Chipotle Mexican Grill on Tuesday said the $1 billion in value the chain lost over five days was caused by a single employee coming to work sick.

The sniffly staffer spread the norovirus around a suburban Washington DC, store, sickening more than 130 customers.

The headlines about the outbreak sent Chopotle’s shares on a five-day slide — cutting more than $1 billion off the Denver company’s market cap. “We conducted a thorough investigation and it revealed that our leadership didn’t follow our protocols,” said Chipotle founder and Chief Executive Steve Ells during a second-quarter earnings conference call on Tuesday. “We believe someone was working while sick,” Ells said.

Roundly criticized last week for not immediately apologizing for the incident and focusing instead on reassuring customers that Chipotle restaurants were safe to eat at, Ells on the call delivered a measured mea culpa, emphasizing that the lapse was “a failure in one restaurant.” Last week’s devastating norovirus news was supercharged when a video of rodents scurrying around a Dallas Chipotle went viral.

The five-day slide put a damper on an otherwise strong quarter.

Chipotle beat Wall Street’s earnings expectations in the period but delivered lower-than-expected sales — despite a big investment in new marketing efforts, including national television adds.

Earnings rose to $2.32 a share; analysts were forecasting $2.18.

Revenue rose 17.1 percent, to $1.17 billion, powered by an 8.1 percent rise in same-store sales.

The burrito chain’s shares ended the five-day slide on Tuesday, rising 2.5 percent, to $348.62. Shares rose another 1.6 percent in after-hours trading.

TODAY IS NATIONAL HOT FUDGE SUNDAE DAY #FACTS JULY 25, 2017. Back in the day a handful of state governments outlawed the consumption of ice cream sodas on Sundays after they became the hottest new craze. Because of this the ice cream sundae was invented!

The prevailing theory is that the first hot fudge sundae took shape in Los Angeles, California back in 1906. Clarence Clifton Brown, owner of C.C. Brown’s Ice Cream Shop, is thought to have created the hot and cold concoction. He experimented with several hot fudge recipes before hitting on the right formula. He started selling hot fudge sundaes at his Hollywood store soon after. No doubt people fell in love with the cold ice cream meeting with the hot fudge and then melting just a bit. Back in the early days of the hot fudge sundae, the dessert was served in fluted glassed, which allowed the ice cream and the hot fudge to run down the side.

The hot fudge sundae remains a staple on dessert menus. There’s even a National Hot Fudge Sundae day (It’s July 25th, in case you are already planning for next year).
So why is a sundae call a sundae? One theory is that it was done in part because of the Sunday Blue Laws that were common in the late 19th and early 20th century. Among the blue law restrictions was the ban on selling soda water on Sundays. That meant no ice cream sodas. So, people focused on the remaining ice cream and flavoring and took it from there.

How to Boil Fettuccine Pasta. #FACTS MAY 23, 2017. Delicious fettuccine depends on perfectly cooked noodles. Italian for "little ribbons," fettuccine are long like spaghetti but thick and flat, making them suitable for pairing with rich sauces based on cream, tomato and oil. Whether fresh or dry, fettuccine should be boiled "al dente." Preparing the Water

Fettuccine and other pasta, either fresh or dry, require a large pot of water -- approximately 5 quarts of water per pound of pasta -- so the noodles have plenty of room and don't stick together. The larger volume of water also means the water temperature doesn't drop as much when the noodles are added, so it returns to boiling more quickly. Bring the water to a rapid boil and season generously with coarse salt or table salt, adding between 1 tablespoon and 1/4 cup of salt. The salt absorbs into the noodles as the cook, adding extra flavor, and also scratches the surface a bit to prevent the starches on the noodle surface from sticking together in the first few minutes of cooking. Do not add oil to the water, because this results in oily noodles that cannot absorb or hold sauce.

Boiling the Noodles

Add the fettuccine to the pot as the water boils rapidly. Stir the noodles immediately and again within the first few minutes of cooking. Pasta noodles release starches on the surface within this time frame and stick together if not stirred.

For fresh noodles, boil for 1 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. For dry noodles, you may need 10 to 13 minutes to "al dente," or for 14 minutes if you prefer slightly more tender noodles. Test single noodles with a quick nibble to check. "Al dente" translates to "to the tooth," which means they are tender but retain a slight bite that sticks to your teeth.

Drain the noodles in a colander but do not rinse, because this washes away the starches that help sauce cling to the noodles. Toss the hot pasta immediately so it absorbs some of the warmed sauce. #FOODNINFO #NINFONETWORK #FETTUCCINE #ALFREDO #RECIPES #EASYRECIPE #FOODANDWINE #SAFOODIE #SFEATS #EATER #FOODANDWINE #FOODNEWS #TRUECOOKS #CHEFSOFINSTAGRAM #BUZZFEEDFOOD #BUZZFEED #NYEATS #EATERDENVER #FOOOOOD #FORKYEAH #YUM

ELK TENDERLOIN WITH ANCHO SAUCE. #FACTS JUNE 7, 2017. Elk is not among the most commonly raised and consumed meats in the United States, but there is a market for the game meat. Many farms raise elk to sell as food, and in some parts of the country restaurants offer elk steak as a main course. This meat has a different taste than beef -- which some consumers find preferable. Healthy eaters may also appreciate that elk meat is considered a valuable source of protein.

One of meat's greatest contributions to your diet is its high protein content. In this regard, elk products can meet and even surpass the protein content of other types of meat. Although the exact protein content can depend on the type of meat and fat content of the cut, the average cut of elk meat contains about 30.6 grams of protein per 3.5-ounce serving. This is slightly more than chicken and several grams per serving more than beef. Harvard School of Public Health reports that protein foods can help lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and cancer.

@ENTERTAINMENTNINFO Nicole Kidman Spits out Giada De Laurentiis’ Cooking on ‘Ellen’ #FACTS MAY 12, 2017. Giada De Laurentiis is easily one of themost prominent personalities in food televison, but not everyone is impressed by her cooking skills. The celebrity chef stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneresShow” on Wednesday to promote the new season of “Food Network Star” alongside “Big Little Lies” star Nicole Kidman and Ellen herself. Unfortunately, there were perhaps too many cooks in the kitchen.

Seemingly trying to recreate Martha Stewart’s awkward “Ellen” cooking segment with Drew Barrymore from 2015, De Laurentiis and Kidman did their best to whip up some arancini and focaccia for DeGeneres — to similarly lukewarm results.

The “Everyday Italian” chef first started poking fun at the Oscar-winning actress when they were attempting to make rice balls. “Oh my god, the woman who can’t cook made the perfect ball,” teased De Laurentiis. This then prompted Kidman to ask De Laurentiis cooking questions that went unanswered. A frustrated Kidman then concluded with a critique of the fennel and clementine pizza. “It’s a little tough … I know you’re not meant to criticize, but it’s a little tough,” admitted Kidman of De Laurentiis’ flatbread before spitting it out — a move that didn’t go unnoticed by the live studio audience.

Even DeGeneres, known for her niceties, struggled with De Laurentiis’ food. #FOODNINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #NINFONETWORK #GIADA #NICOLEKIDMAN #ellendegeneres #ELLENSHOW #GIADALASVAGAS #EVERYDAYITALIAN #GIADADELAURENTIIS #FOODNETWORK #FOODANDWINE #CELEBRITYCHEF #CHEFSOFINSTAGRAM #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOSTGRAM #OPRAHMAGAZINE #TIMEMAGAZINE #ELLEMAGAZINE #INSTYLE #CELEBRITY #INTOUCH #VOGUEMAG #TIMEMAG #EATER #TRUECOOKS #LASVEGAS #BIGLITTLELIES

Improving Your Diet Just a Little Bit Can Help You Live Longer, Says Study #FACTS JULY 23, 2017. You don’t have to drastically change your diet in order to add years to your life, finds a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
When we think about maintaining a healthy diet, we tend to get lost in the numbers: a few ounces of this, a few grams of that. But after analyzing the dietary and lifestyle patterns of nearly 74,000 adults over a 12-year period, researchers found that participants who modestly improved their diet over time lived longer than those who didn’t. It's the first study to show that improving your eating patterns over a dozen years can lead to a longer life.
Researchers used three scoring methods, where essentially those who ate healthier foods and nutrients got higher scores — and vice versa. Beyond whole foods, meat, and dairy, that included sugary drinks.
The results showed that the largest increase in healthy eating lowered the risk of death by 8-17%, depending on a participant's diet score. This kind of increase, researchers said in a statement, could be as simple as swapping one serving of red or processed meat for nuts or legumes, such as beans, lentils, peas, and peanuts.
Overall, participants who maintained healthy eating patterns throughout the study period lowered their risk of death between 9-14%, with even those who started out with unhealthy eating patterns seeing a reduced risk the more healthy food they added over time.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, those who followed unhealthy eating patterns saw an increase risk of early death.

#RECIPE: Try this Watermelon-Tequila Cocktail recipe for tequila day. #FACTS JULY 24, 2017. When watermelon is in abundance, this is a great way to use it. Bobby Flay purees seedless watermelon chunks, then strains the juice through a sieve and mixes it with silver tequila, sugar syrup, blueberries, mint and fresh lime juice.

INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup water
1/4 cup granulated sugar
8 cups diced seedless watermelon (1 pound)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 3/4 cups blueberries
3/4 cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves, plus 8 sprigs for garnish
1 1/4 cups silver tequila
Ice

HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

In a small saucepan, bring the water to a simmer with the sugar and stir over moderate heat until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute; let the sugar syrup cool.

In a blender, puree the watermelon until smooth. Set a fine-mesh strainer over a bowl and strain the watermelon juice, pressing gently on the solids to extract as much juice as possible. Discard the pulp.

In a large pitcher, combine the sugar syrup with the lime juice, blueberries and mint leaves. Using a wooden spoon, lightly muddle the blueberries and mint. Add the watermelon juice and tequila. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.

Pour the cocktail into tall ice-filled glasses. Garnish with the mint sprigs and serve.

#TBT Mexican Food Maven Diana Kennedy #FACTS JULY 20, 2017. Diana Kennedy (born 3 March 1923) is a Mexican cooking authority known for her 9 books on the subject, including The Cuisines of Mexico, which started changing how Americans view Mexican cooking. Her work is the basis of much of the work of Mexican chefs in the United States. Her cookbooks are distinctive because they are based on her fifty years of traveling Mexico, interviewing and learning from cooks of all kinds in the country, and from just about every region.

Her work has also documented native edible plants, which has been digitized by National Commission for Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity. Due to her style of work, Kennedy has been called a "culinary anthropologist" and has self-identified as an "ethno-gastronomer". Kennedy has received numerous awards for her work, including the Order of the Aztec Eagle from the Mexican government and membership in the Order of the British Empire.

Kennedy has been called the "grand dame of Mexican cooking" compared to Julia Child in the United States and Elizabeth David in England. She has been called a "dogged, obsessive pop anthropologist." Her comparison to Julia Child comes from her promotion of Mexican cuisine, much the way that Child did for French cuisine; however, while flattered, she dismisses it. She has been a common name among foodies in the United States for decades, but did not receive notice in her native England until Prince Charles came to Quinta Diana in 2002, to eat and to award her membership in the Order of the British Empire.

The Infiniti QX70 is dead and the new QX50 is to blame #FACTS JULY 26, 2017. In today’s SUV-hungry auto market, most carmakers are adding crossovers to their sales lineups, not subtracting them.

However, as with all trends, there’s always an outlier or two to buck the trend. In this case, it’s Infiniti, which has promptly discontinued its midsize QX70.

Nissan’s luxury subsidiary let its dealers know that the crossover will not return for the 2018 model year, according to a report from Automotive News. Instead, Infiniti will focus on the redesigned QX50 compact crossover, which goes on sale next year.

Neither the QX70—previously known as the Infiniti FX­—nor the QX50 has much of a track record to fall back on, but the latter had a banner year in 2016, racking up nearly than 17,000 sales, 10,000 more than the QX70 ever totaled in a year.

Aside from the QX70’s slightly larger body and a few design tweaks to the front and rear ends, the two models are strikingly similar. Both have five seats, both have 3.7-liter V6 engines that make 325 horsepower and feature options are fairly similar.

Perhaps the biggest advantage the Q70 had was in cargo capacity but with the three-row QX60 and the QX80 SUV, which is due for a redesign in the near future, customers will not be left wanting more utility. #vehicleninfo #ninfonetwork #QX70 #QX50 #INFINITI #INFINITISUV #SUV #SEDAN #toyota #nissan #bentley #tesla #CARS #luxurylifestyle #autoindustry #ELONMUSK #POPULARMECHANIC #autoweek #CARPORN #caranddriver #maserati #luxurycar #instacar #CARLOVERS #BENZ #AUDI #rangerover #JAGUAR #CAR

Trump announces transgender military service ban on Twitter #FACTS JULY 26, 2017. In just three tweets typed out Wednesday morning, President Trump announced the end of military service for thousands of transgender Americans.

Trump abruptly announced a ban on transgender people serving in the U.S. military, reversing a policy from former President Barack Obama that would have allowed them to openly serve starting this month. “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow..........Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming.........victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you,” Trump wrote in the tweets.

His decision drew immediate outrage from LGBT advocates who saw this as Trump’s biggest shot yet in his fight against transgender rights. “It just shows straightforward animosity toward transgender people,” Sasha Buchert, a staff attorney with the LGBT rights group Lambda Legal said. “We’re disgusted by this move to force people back into the closet. These are people that put their lives on the line for their country," she said.

Buchert said Trump’s tactic for the announcement — breaking the news in tweets without any advanced warning — only made the “irresponsible” decision hurt more. #ninfonetwork #TRUMP #donaldtrump #military #transgender #politicians #washingtonpost #washingtondc #NEWS #DAILYNEWS #jeffsessions #OBAMA #PRESIDENT #THEWHITEHOUSE #FRANCE #ITALY #GERMANY #RUSSIA #LONDON #ENGLAND #ENEWS #LOSANGELES #NEWYORK #NYC #LATIMES #POLITICO

One sick worker is to blame for Chipotle's $1B value loss #FACTS JULY 26, 2017. Chipotle Mexican Grill on Tuesday said the $1 billion in value the chain lost over five days was caused by a single employee coming to work sick.

The sniffly staffer spread the norovirus around a suburban Washington DC, store, sickening more than 130 customers.

The headlines about the outbreak sent Chopotle’s shares on a five-day slide — cutting more than $1 billion off the Denver company’s market cap. “We conducted a thorough investigation and it revealed that our leadership didn’t follow our protocols,” said Chipotle founder and Chief Executive Steve Ells during a second-quarter earnings conference call on Tuesday. “We believe someone was working while sick,” Ells said.

Roundly criticized last week for not immediately apologizing for the incident and focusing instead on reassuring customers that Chipotle restaurants were safe to eat at, Ells on the call delivered a measured mea culpa, emphasizing that the lapse was “a failure in one restaurant.” Last week’s devastating norovirus news was supercharged when a video of rodents scurrying around a Dallas Chipotle went viral.

The five-day slide put a damper on an otherwise strong quarter.

Chipotle beat Wall Street’s earnings expectations in the period but delivered lower-than-expected sales — despite a big investment in new marketing efforts, including national television adds.

Earnings rose to $2.32 a share; analysts were forecasting $2.18.

Inside details on why Bieber cancelled his tour #FACTS JULY 25, 2017. An aggressive tour schedule has taken its toll on Justin Bieber, sources tell ET.

On Monday, the 23-year-old superstar announced he's canceling the remaining dates of his Purpose tour, citing "unforeseen circumstances." Bieber had at least 12 concerts left on his schedule, including an Aug. 5 performance at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, which he had given out tickets to an entire audience of The Ellen DeGeneres Show for.

A tour source tells ET that Bieber is currently "exhausted." "This is a guy who has had 150 shows on this tour, on six continents, over the last year and half, and he's tired," the source says. "He needed a break and as much as he didn't want to disappoint his fans, the best decision for him was to cancel the remaining tour dates." A second source tells ET that Bieber very much had his fans in mind while making the decision. "The tour was just really long and he was exhausted," the source notes. "He doesn't want to let his fans down but they have always had his back." A statement on Bieber's official website on Monday thanked fans on behalf of the "Sorry" singer, and said ticket refunds will be available at the point of purchase. #entertainmentninfo #ninfonetwork #justinbieber #bieber #beliebers #SINGER #TOUR #belieber #hollywoodreporter #VOGUE #ELLE #cosmopolitan #celebrities #losangeles #selenagomez #thewknd #voguemagazine #ellemagazine #MTV #mto #NYC #usweekly #CANADA #DRAKE #TORONTO #WSHH #BET #BOSSIP

TODAY IS NATIONAL HOT FUDGE SUNDAE DAY #FACTS JULY 25, 2017. Back in the day a handful of state governments outlawed the consumption of ice cream sodas on Sundays after they became the hottest new craze. Because of this the ice cream sundae was invented!

The prevailing theory is that the first hot fudge sundae took shape in Los Angeles, California back in 1906. Clarence Clifton Brown, owner of C.C.

He started selling hot fudge sundaes at his Hollywood store soon after. No doubt people fell in love with the cold ice cream meeting with the hot fudge and then melting just a bit. Back in the early days of the hot fudge sundae, the dessert was served in fluted glassed, which allowed the ice cream and the hot fudge to run down the side.

The hot fudge sundae remains a staple on dessert menus. There’s even a National Hot Fudge Sundae day (It’s July 25th, in case you are already planning for next year).
So why is a sundae call a sundae? One theory is that it was done in part because of the Sunday Blue Laws that were common in the late 19th and early 20th century. Among the blue law restrictions was the ban on selling soda water on Sundays. That meant no ice cream sodas. So, people focused on the remaining ice cream and flavoring and took it from there.

2018 Lexus LC 500 coupe to make cameo in Marvel's 'Black Panther' #FACTS JULY 25, 2017. Although Audi seems to be the reigning automotive star of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, from Tony Stark’s vast lineup of R8’s to the new A8 appearing in this summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” it looks like 2018 will feature some screen time from Lexus. A recently released promotional photo for next year’s “Black Panther” shows the masked superhero crouching on top of an all-new LC 500.

Set directly after the events of “Captain America: Civil War”, “Black Panther” follows T’Challa on his return home to his African nation of Wakanda where our hero must fight to bring peace once again to the kingdom. Although Lexus’s high performance coupe doesn’t appear in the latest teaser trailer for the movie, we’d like to think that this recent photo is plenty of proof the Black Panther will find himself up close and personal with the 2018 Lexus LC 500 – and hopefully behind the wheel!

For those excited about this new collaboration between Lexus and Marvel, there’s more! The two have also paired to produce a graphic novel about the Black Panther using the LC500 in another heroic quest. “This campaign clicked from the get-go,” said Mindy Hamilton, Marvel’s SVP of global partnerships. “We have this bold, sophisticated hero stepping into the spotlight for the first time, and it’s been a blast to work with the Lexus team to build out a story that’ll familiarize fans with T’Challa as well as his advanced home nation of Wakanda.” Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” hits theaters Feb. 16, 2018.

Based on the LF-LC Concept, the all-new 2018 Lexus LC 500 luxury coupe starts at $92,000 and features a 5.0-liter V8 making 471 horsepower, accelerating it to 60 mph from a standstill in 4.5 seconds. The LC also gets a new hybrid powertrain option based on a V6 engine producing 354 horsepower, motivating the LC to reach 60 mph in five seconds flat. #vehicleninfo #ninfonetwork #blackpanther #LEXUS #lexuslc500 #marvel #marvelcomics #SPIDERMAN #AUDI #tonystark #mercedes #movies #bentley #USWEEKLY #autoweek #VOGUE #TESLA #ELLE #ELONMUSK #voguemagazine #toyota #ellemagazine #FORD #ENEWS #GM #hollywoodreporter

Chrissy Teigen gets blocked by President Trump on Twitter #FACTS JULY 25, 2017. President Trump just got ugly with one of the world's most beautiful women — he blocked supermodel Chrissy Teigen from seeing his tweets.

Teigen — who has repeatedly slammed the commander-in-chief on the site for months — revealed Tuesday that the thin-skinned Leader of the Free World has blocked her on Twitter. "After 9 years of hating Donald J Trump, telling him 'lol no one likes you' was the straw," Teigen wrote, referring to the last tweet she issued about Trump before he blocked her. Teigen had issued that tweet on Sunday to mock Trump for suggesting that it was very "sad" that some Republicans aren't doing enough to "protect" him.
Though often played for laughs, Trump's ability to block people from viewing his Twitter posts has serious ramifications. Some have argued that tweets from President's account are official statements, and that blocking people from seeing his page could be a violation of the rights promised by the First Amendment. #entertainmentninfo #ninfonetwork #chrissyteigen #donaldtrump #thewhitehouse #HOLLYWOOD #democrat #johnlegend #republican #vogue #washingtondc #ellemagazine #ENEWS #trump #USWEEKLY #PRESIDENT #MTO #POLITICO #hollywoodreporter #CNN #actress #CNBC #celebrities #CONGRESS #NEWS #NYC #losangeles #dailynews #LATIMES

#RECIPE: Try this Watermelon-Tequila Cocktail recipe for tequila day. #FACTS JULY 24, 2017. When watermelon is in abundance, this is a great way to use it. Bobby Flay purees seedless watermelon chunks, then strains the juice through a sieve and mixes it with silver tequila, sugar syrup, blueberries, mint and fresh lime juice.

INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup water
1/4 cup granulated sugar
8 cups diced seedless watermelon (1 pound)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 3/4 cups blueberries
3/4 cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves, plus 8 sprigs for garnish

Dale Earnhardt Jr. to join NBC as broadcaster after NASCAR season #FACTS JULY 24, 2017. Dale Earnhardt Jr. will go from the race track to the broadcast booth without making a pit stop.

NBC on Monday confirmed a Sports Business Journal report that details the NASCAR driver’s multiyear deal with the network, which begins in January following Earnhardt’s retirement from the sport at the end of the 2017 season.

Earnhardt will serve a key role in NBC’s NASCAR coverage but won’t be limited to the track, according to the report. The 42-year-old is also expected to contribute to other areas of the network’s programming, possibly as part of its NFL and Olympics coverage.

NBC carries only the second half of NASCAR’s Monster Energy and Xfinity series seasons through 2024, which means the network has some time to determine Earnhardt’s role.

Earnhardt, who announced his upcoming retirement in April, will also contribute to NBC during this season.

On Sunday, his effort at the Brickyard 400 lasted just 76 laps after he was involved in a multi-car crash. He finished 36th in Indianapolis and fell to 22nd in the NASCAR Cup standings.

Earnhardt, who missed the last 18 races of last season due to concussion symptoms, has 26 Cup Series wins in over 600 career races. He made his debut in the NASCAR Cup Series in 1999, two years before his father, Dale Earnhardt Sr., died in a crash during the final lap of the Daytona 500.

Earnhardt Jr.’s final NASCAR Cup Series race is set for Nov. 19 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. #vehicleninfo #entertainmentninfo #ninfonetwork #daleearnhardtJR #NASCAR #NBC #DAILYNEWS #ENEWS #vogue #ELLE #hollywood #celebrities #washingtondc #GERMANY #BRAZIL #SPAIN #RACING #CARS #tesla #ELONMUSK #nascarcupseries #DAYTONA500 #cnbc #cnn #athlete #GRANDPRIX #FORMULA1 #FORMULAE #JEFFGORDON
