Indoor food truck opens inside Lunds & Byerlys in Eagan

Category: کیمیا | No comments

After a topsy-turvy summer food truck season, with next to no foot traffic in downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul, an innovative partnership with a grocery store is taking this mobile business indoors.

Beginning today, you can find a food truck — the facade anyway — inside the deli department at the Eagan Lunds & Byerlys (1299 Promenade Pl., Eagan, 651-686-9669).

It’s a rotating pop-up called Eat Street, and O’Cheeze is moving in for the first six-week residency. After that, another food truck will take over the space.

“It’s a unique way to bring new and exciting food to our customers, while also inviting the devoted foodie followers of local food trucks to step in and discover Lunds & Byerlys,” John Stueland, deli director at Lunds & Byerlys, said in a release...

In 2001, when the Library of Congress’ inaugural National Book Festival kicked off in Washington, D.C., some 50 award-winning authors, illustrators and storytellers peopled the pop-up tents on the East Lawn of the U.S. Capitol to read excerpts of their work, sign their books and interact with fans. That was September 9. Two days later, our national sense of normalcy and security were toppled by the 9/11 attacks.

Now in the festival’s milestone 20th anniversary year, we’re collectively confronting another crippling tragedy—this one interminable and even more deadly in its seven-month siege...

Bilkis dadi, face of CAA protests, among TIME’s 100 most influential people 2020

Category: کیمیا | No comments

New Delhi: Eighty-two-year-old Bilkis, who shot into the limelight last year during the months-long anti-citizenship law protest at Shaheen Bagh here, has been recognised by the TIME magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of 2020.

During the protest, which began in December, the octogenarian sat under a tent with hundreds of women and children, braving icy winds. She emerged as the face of the protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act and the proposed National Register of Citizens.

The protest at Shaheen Bagh ended in March this year in view of the COVID-19 outbreak and a subsequent lockdown announced by the government to contain the spread of the disease.

Also on the TIME magazine’s list from India are Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bollywood actor Ayushman Khurrana.

Activists, celebrities and everyday Americans have been calling for charges since Taylor, an emergency medical worker, was shot multiple times by white officers who entered her home during a narcotics investigation in March...

The Chicago Sun-Times and ESPN report that Sayers’ transition comes after he was diagnosed with dementia in 2012.

In 1977, the Chicago Bears legend was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame after accumulating 56 touchdowns and almost 5,000 rushing yards in a career cut short by injuries. In seven seasons, he was named to the All-Pro team five times and led the league in rushing twice before becoming the youngest Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee ever at 34 years old.

Category: کیمیا | No comments

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has found that one of the nine arrested Al-Qaeda cadres had plans to run a radical camp in the guise of Madrasa, which has come under its scanner, in line of the terror module at Simulia Madrasa ran by Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh in Burdwan in West Bengal that had come to light six years ago after the Burdwan blast.

NIA sources revealed that Al Mamun Kamal, the accused, told the investigators that he had raised funds for the purpose and even opened a Madrasa privately at his village: Paschim Nawdapara at Domkol in Murshidabad where he wanted to run a camp to radicalize young minds. He alongwith others had also started building a mosque nearby.

To raise funds Kamal, facing the NIA’s interrogation now, targeted hundreds of migrant workers, who ...

A ‘Confederacy of Whiteness’: Virginia Military Academy’s Uncivil War Against Its Black Students

Category: کیمیا | No comments

When Vice President Mike Pence visited the Virginia Military Academy, the Black students disappeared.

That is not a metaphor.

Everyone loves a good metaphor. But Mike Pence is not the personification of VMI’s racism, and there are much better ways to compare 181-year old VMI—the oldest state-supported military college in the U.S.—with the 244-year-old country in which it sits. Geologists have never seen a molehill evolve into a mountain range. Few veterinarians can recall a camel spine being fractured by a straw. And VMI is not a metaphor for America.

Black people built America. The Virginia Military Institute, on the other hand, began as an all-white male college...

I don’t know if you know this, but a good shower can make or break your day, and taking one requires a decent shower head.

Tons of reviewers spilled the tea on five of the best shower heads based on water pressure, ease of installation, and their experiences overall. Let’s get to it!

PM Modi asks CMs to focus on micro containment zones to curb COVID

Category: کیمیا | No comments

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday asked state governments to focus on “micro containment zones” to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus instead of shutting down activities in the entire state which may restrict economic growth.

During a review meeting with the chief ministers and representatives of seven states with a high number of cases, Mr Modi asked them to reassess if lockdown of one or two days a week are being effective in containing the deadly virus or are hampering economic activities. He also asked states to enhance their focus on effective testing, tracing, treatment, surveillance and clear messaging to curb the pandemic.

Mr Modi said out of 700 districts in the country, only 60 have major spread of Covid-19 and asked the CMs to spend about one hour a day over...
