    Archaeologists have uncovered the first Iron Age wine press in Lebanon, dating from the 7th century BC.   Excavations at the ancient settlement of Tell el-Burak near the city of Sidon uncovered the well-preserved press, which was constructed from plaster made by mixing lime and recycled ceramics.  Wine makers would have stomped the grapes in the 10-foot-square basin, with the resulting liquid trickling down into a semi-circular vat below for collection and fermentation.  It was already known that the ancient Romans admired the Phoenicians for their wine making skills, but until now only amphorae and grape seeds had been found at the Tell el-Burak site. Exports of Phoenician wine, which was produced on a 'grand scale', paved the way for the beverage's...

    AN ANCIENT wine factory has been unearthed in Lebanon.

    HOUSTON, Texas -- When Maria "Ninfa" Laurenzo first opened a taco shop in Houston's East End neighborhood in 1973, she was a widow with five children and her tortilla factory was failing. It started as a side business to earn some extra cash, but she never imagined it would become a Tex-Mex culinary empire."Mama Ninfa," as she became known, sold 250 of her handmade tacos al carbon the first day she opened Ninfa's on Navigation Street. Before long, word spread about Ninfa's chargrilled skirt steak and business grew so quickly that Mama Ninfa closed the tortilla factory to focus on the restaurant.Today, the Original Ninfa's is a Tex-Mex institution, credited with popularizing fajitas in Texas, and ultimately, across the country....

    More than 15 phones belonging to the investigative team of then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller were 'wiped' for a variety of reasons, according to recently released documents from the Department of Justice.  Phones were wiped of information because of forgotten passcodes, irreversible screen damage, loss of the device, intentional deletion or other reasons - coming before the Office of Inspector General (OIG) had a chance to review the devices.  The documents were released after a lawsuit from the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Fox News reports.  Andrew Weissman and FBI lawyer Lisa Page were among those on the team who had their phones wiped before they got to the Office of Inspector General Andrew Weissman, Mueller's deputy, 'accidentally wiped' his...
    Hollywood is accommodating a new era of McCarthyism — imposed this time by Red China. It involves everything that Hollywood tells us that it hates — censorship, pressure to conform and blacklists. Yet the studios have seamlessly absorbed Beijing’s dictates into their operations. This most iconic American business is now, literally, an agent of Chinese influence. The latest outrage is Disney’s live-action remake of the ­animated 1998 movie “Mulan,” based on Chinese folklore about a girl enlisting in the army. Disney filmed parts of the movie in China and, in its credits, thanks Chinese propaganda departments as well as a public-security bureau in the province of Xinjiang, where Beijing is carrying out its hideous campaign against the Uighurs. If you...
    Kenneth Womack September 7, 2020 6:00PM (UTC) For John Lennon and Yoko Ono's "Double Fantasy," the big day finally arrived on Thursday, August 7, 1980. John had not recorded any new original music at a professional recording studio since July 1974, when he began working on his "Walls and Bridges" LP at the Record Plant. Recognizing the historic nature of the moment, Yoko had retained a Boston publicity agent, Charles J. Cohen, to capture the couple's triumphant return to the recording studio on that hot August day. To mark the occasion, Cohen dispatched photographer Roger Farrington to meet the Lennons at the Dakota and accompany them to the Hit Factory. "My job," Farrington recalled, "was to get one photo...

    Residents of the city of Olten, Switzerland, were in for a big surprise finding your city lightly dusted with a fine cocoa powder that came from a nearby factory of the Lindt & Spruengli chocolate factory, according to the Parents portal.

    Stock footage of Moscow factory worker used in Trump's convention video If there’s anything that the RNC convention has been about it’s been telling the story of how Donald Trump personally stepped in front of the coronavirus and saved America from even getting so much as a sniffle. If there’s anything else it’s been about, it’s been demonstrating just how much Trump, other people also named Trump, and everyone working for Trump, just doesn’t give a monkey’s ass about violating the Hatch Act. And if there’s anything else it’s been about, it’s been about glossy infomercials with lots of brass in the music, designed to sell the idea that Donald Trump created every job on his way to saving the...

    By Yuras Karmanau | Associated Press MINSK, Belarus — Authorities in Belarus detained a leader of striking factory workers and threatened demonstrators with criminal charges Friday in a bid to stop the massive post-election protests challenging the country’s authoritarian president, who accused the United States of fomenting the unrest. Investigators also summoned several opposition activists for questioning as part of a criminal probe into a council they created with the goal of coordinating a transition of power for the ex-Soviet nation that President Alexander Lukashenko has ruled with an iron fist for 26 years. Protesters are demanding that Lukashenko resign, accusing him of stealing a sixth term in office by rigging the country’s Aug. 9 presidential election. Many...
    WIRED senior writer Andy Greenberg didn’t know quite what to expect when Wayne Hsiung, an attorney and animal rights activist, handed him an Oculus headset in his Berkeley home back in the summer of 2019. What he saw, Greenberg said, made the hairs on the back of his neck stand up. Hsiung wanted Greenberg to experience, in 360 degrees, “Operation Deathstar"—the name Hsiung and his animal rights group, Direct Action Everywhere, assigned one of their most ambitious projects to date. Hsiung and his team infiltrated a massive pig farm in southwest Utah in an effort to disprove the farm’s claims that they were keeping pregnant sows in humane quarters. They not only broke in and captured footage; they did...
    By Saurabh Sharma and Devjyot Ghoshal DUTTA NAGAR, India (Reuters) - Until late March, Ashish Kumar was helping to make plastic boxes for Ferrero Rocher praline chocolates and the plastic spoons tucked inside Kinder Joy eggs to scoop out the milky sweet cream inside.

India's coronavirus lockdown has thrown those plans into disarray. Educated but unemployed, Ashish Kumar is one of countless people...

The president went after Biden’s ‘five decades in office,’ arguing Biden has done nothing. ‘He's been in public office for 47 years. He's done nothing. Now he's gonna fix everything?

    Tesla had to make some pretty severe cuts to preserve its earnings in Q2, given the widespread effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. While Tesla’s North American factories were shuttered, the company furloughed thousands of workers and cut salaries by up to 30 percent, suspended contract assignments and even delayed performance reviews so that it wouldn’t have to pay out bonuses or pay increases to deserving employees until the end of July. That turned out to be a pretty raw deal for many Tesla workers who were forced to return to the job before shelter-in-place orders were lifted, but hey, it made Musk significantly richer. Despite the factory shutdowns in the first half of the year, Tesla says that its Fremont...
    Tesla turned a profit of $104 million in the second quarter of 2020 despite shutting down its electric vehicle factory in Fremont, California, for roughly seven weeks because of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, Tesla has now been profitable for four straight quarters for the first time in company history — an elusive benchmark the company has long sought. But perhaps more importantly, Tesla says it has a “site selected” for its next Gigafactory in the US. The company is on track to receive several tax incentive packages from local authorities in Austin, Texas, though it has been in talks with Tulsa, Oklahoma. Wherever the factory lands, Tesla will use it to build the Cybertruck and more Model...

    A new report published by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) exposes the overuse of antibiotics in the beef industry. The report is a warning to the industry about its overuse of antibiotics. In a shocking statistic, cattle producers purchased 42% of all imported antibiotics sold for livestock in the United States in 2018. In 2018, 7.5 million pounds of antibiotics were sold for human use and 5.6 million pounds were sold for cattle. This is in stark contrast to the European Union, where the use of antibiotics in cattle is discouraged. The beef industry is mostly comprised of numerous feedlots in states like Texas, Nebraska, Colorado, and Iowa. These large lots are where the majority of the antibiotics...
    (Bloomberg Opinion) — China is building tens of thousands of 5G base stations every week. Whether it wins technological dominance or not, domestic supply chains may be revived and allow the country to maintain – and advance — its position as the factory floor of the world, even as Covid-19 forces a rethink in how globalization is done.  By the end of this year, China will have more than half a million of these towers on its way to a goal of 5 million, a fast climb from around 200,000 already in use, enabling faster communication for hundreds of millions of smartphone users. By comparison, South Korea has a nearly 10% penetration rate for 5G usage, the highest globally. The much-smaller country had 115,000 such stations operating as of April. The towers are part of a raft of projects...

    Prince Charles's unflappability was given a stern test yesterday as a man he was chatting to at an Asda distribution centre passed out cold in front of him. The Royal was on a tour of the facility in Bristol with wife Camilla when the unnamed worker fainted.

But after a moment's pause, and after being given an indication that the man, by now in the recovery position, seemed to be coming round, unfazed Charles...
    Initially, Your Progress Will Be Saved feels like something you’d find in a modern art gallery. Attendees start off in a sort of holding area, a dimly lit room with a clean, minimalist aesthetic. A flight of stairs takes you to a broken mirror resting on a pedestal, with a description of the mirror emoji pasted on the wall behind it. But things get strange when you turn around. In order to move forward, you have to walk right through a glowing blue wall into a completely new location. This is art by way of Fortnite. Your Progress Will Be Saved is the first part of a new project from the Manchester International Festival (MIF) called the “Virtual Factory,” which...
    There are countless stories of the abuse that animals suffer in factory farms. Animals are cramped, stolen from their mothers, mutilated, and tortured until they are slaughtered for people to eat. It’s so heartbreaking to hear about the atrocities that animals endure at the hands of humans. Hopefully one day, we will live in a world without factory farming and animal agriculture altogether. However, for now, it’s important to bear witness to and educate others about the inhumane treatment of animals In addition to the cruel torture inflicted on animals in factory farms, the devastating impact of factory farming on the environment is becoming increasingly more discussed in mainstream spheres. Factory farming accounts for mass deforestation, 37% of global methane emissions, and uses 70%...
    By Djaffar Al Katany GOMA (Reuters) - Aisha Kalinda melts the chunks of cocoa in a pan and spoons the brown gloop into a mould which will become the latest bar produced at the Lowa chocolate factory, the first locally owned producer in Democratic Republic of Congo. For decades, eastern Congo's underground riches such as gold and coltan have sustained cycles of deadly violence in the area. But before the country fell apart in the 1990s, North Kivu province exported overground riches too, like coffee and cocoa. "People have that ignorance of looking at chocolate like it's something from abroad, that can't be made in Africa," Kalinda said, stirring the pot. "We decided to break that rule."

    BEIJING (AP) — China’s manufacturing activity improved in June after anti-virus controls were eased to revive the economy but export demand was weak, a survey released Tuesday showed. A monthly purchasing managers’ index released by the government statistics agency and an industry group rose to 50.9 from May’s 50.6 on a 100-point scale on which numbers above 50 show activity expanding. China, where the coronavirus pandemic began in December, was the first economy to reopen in March after the ruling Communist Party declared victory over the disease. Manufacturing and other activity is reviving but demand for exports is feeble and Chinese consumers, worried about losing jobs, are reluctant to spend.

The severity of the disease and the heightened risk of infection have forced medical teams to abandon many of the practices that help...
