Emmys Spaghetti Shack Funky Vibe Pasta and More

first_img 0% Holy Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Luigi! Red sauce and three giant meatballs – a family of four could easily live in- I mean-feast on -this mountain. With the BF’s help, I made it through two of the meatballs but made only a dent in this mass of carby goodness.The BF ordered steak – that’s who he is, that’s what he does.Emmy’s flatiron steak.Flatiron – slightly overcooked, slightly tough, but good flavor, accompanied by a sage compound butter, sautéed greens, mashed potatoes. It was too bad about the overcooking, but the meat tasted beefy, lemony, and nicely rich with the butter.   Really, not too shabby for a $20 steak .Desserts appear to be premade, just tarted up at the restaurant – they don’t have a pastry chef, so sue them. We were too full for dessert, as always, anyway.On our second visit, we sat at a table, and I ordered a beautiful little rosé, like a lady.Emmy’s Deux Punx rose.But here at Emmy’s, it’s gotta have a little punk feel to it – so it was a dry, unfiltered rosé by Deux Punx from Lake County. Went perfectly with my meal.We thought we’d over-ordered again, but the plates this time weren’t as massive as my spag and meatballs. We split a salad of grilled pear, goat cheese, pepitas, pomegranate seeds, endive and arugula…Emmy’s grilled pear salad.Lots of crunchy things going on, delish with the creamy goat cheese. Even better than the Caesar.Next came Bocconcini balls – fried mozzarella, basically, but really light instead of heavy and dense as I’ve usually found that appetizer in other places. These were served with a homemade ranch dressing and their own marinara on the side.Emmy’s BocconciniOnly five to an order, so you really can’t overindulge too much. Really tasty, and I’d get them again.For his main, the BF got the pulled pork pappardelle. It looked great, but it turned out to be pretty bland, unfortunately. Poor guy, he always seems to get the wrong thing!Emmy’s Pork ragu pappardelle.It’s a shame to waste good pulled pork that way, and I hope it was just an off-night for this dish.For my dinner, I queried our server: “Linguine with mussels & clams, or the Mayan shrimp risotto?” Without hesitation, she responded “The linguine.”Emmy’s linguini with mussels & clams.It had just come back on the menu, she said, so I was in luck. It came in a white wine garlic sauce with slices of smoky Spanish chorizo, and was out of his world! Garlicky but not overly so, the dish smelled heavenly when they sat it in front of me, and I kept stirring the pasta into the smoky oils and juices at the bottom of the plate to envelope it in all the goodness. I’m not really a huge pasta person, but I could eat this dish happily once a week. And I did end up having enough pasta leftover for lunch the next day.The menu also boasts a veggie/gluten friendly zoodles dish (that’s “pasta” made of spiralized zucchini), as well as baked portabella mushrooms, prawn ceviche, a meatball sandwich, mashed potatoes, orecchieti with pancetta and asparagus, and that Mayan risotto that still has me wondering…. A real neighborhood place, friendly, with kick-ass servers (not a man-bun in sight!) and a Latino kitchen. If that isn’t the (old-school) Mission, I don’t know what is.

These people were machines!I was curious about their cocktails….Emmy’s soboloff martini.They have beer and wine, but also something I’d never heard of before – a half-proof vodka, Soboloff – apparently not available for retail. It’s fermented rather than distilled, with a lower alcohol content. The bartender made me a “martini” with it, and pomegranate and hibiscus juices. Tasty, nice and light, with just a tad of a bite. They also make margaritas with an agave wine-type thing. I get that it’s a way to offer your customers a “cocktail” without having to buy a liquor license, and it was rather nice to be able to have three drinks (2 refills in the shaker) AND a glass of wine, and not feel totally blotto (although, please, not that there’s anything wrong with that.)Then, our salad:Emmy’s caesar salad.Emmy’s Caesar salad is long crispy spears of romaine with a creamy dressing. A sprinkle of shredded parm and a few grinds of black pepper – not fancy, just cool and crunchy and garlicky and all that you need in a Caesar (ok, anchovies wouldn’t hurt.)Thank god we didn’t order the garlic bread because everyone gets a plate of focaccia with a little bowl of olive oil and balsamic. But I did have to try their signature dish – Spaghetti and Meatballs! As I told the bartender on our first night at Emmy’s, we lived in Bernal for a while but never made it here. What a waste! After 13 years in its old spot, it moved in 2014 into the Mission – well, just barely; they’re still holding on to their Bernal cred – and far be it for me to take away anyone’s right to self-identify.   Blue Plate, however, two doors down, calls itself a Mission District restaurant. So, ok, let’s call it OUTER Mission. Or, just do like we did and say hell with it – it’s food, let’s eat.Much beloved in the neighborhood, it’s a family friendly spot in the early evening (with an unbelievable Kids-eat-free Monday and Tuesday nights from 5-7pm policy on their menu!) But there’s a punk feel to Emmy’s, from the servers with their chopped off bangs and tats to the Pixies playing in the background. The décor is biker bar/whimsical, with menus that look like they were designed by 3rd graders, and a back play room featuring a pinball machine, a Centipede video game, and a photo both. There’s also a sweet little patio out back. So homey. And its “new” digs are bigger, so it’s easier to get into. Emmy’s is hip without the hipsters.Our first night was on a Saturday and the place was jam-packed, but we were soon seated at the bar, where you can watch the kitchen goings-on and order a full dinner off the menu.last_img read more

Table salt multiplies hard disk space six times

first_imgAdvertisement The discovery was made by Singapore’s national research institution the Agency for Science Technology and Research, in collaboration with the National University of Singapore and the Data Storage Institute.The agencies have “developed a process that can increase the data recording density of hard disks to 3.3 Terabits per square inch, six times the recording density of current models”, they said in a statement.The addition of sodium chloride to the manufacturing process meant the pattern of bits – units of information – on the surface of each magnetic disk was neater, allowing more to be crammed in. – Advertisement – The salt improved the resolution of the electron beam used to “print” the bits“It can give you a very high contrast. We are now able to see fine lines that would normally be blurred out,” said Dr Joel Yang, the scientist who led the development.“Otherwise you can try your best to pattern these bits very closely but they will all end up being gigantic blurred out blobs.”According Dr Yang, the new process could be commercialized by 2016, “when the current techniques run out of fuel and (hard drive manufacturers) need to find alternate methods” of increasing data storage space.Source: Telegraph Newslast_img read more

Biometric tech tattos can help in fitness tracking

first_imgThe wearable fitness tracking market is still dominated by Fit bit. Image Credit: WT VOX Advertisement Chaotic Moon Studios, a development firm in Austin, Texas has come up with a new concept of wearable technology. The start up firm has started working on “tech tattoos” integrating sensors and conductive paint applied on any part of the body. This will allow seamless tracking health and other biometric data from the body.These biometric wearables dubbed as ‘Tech Tats’ are skin-mounted components inked with conductive paint to create and lay a circuit board onto the body. A collection of bio-sensors reside on the body the form of a tattoo.Instead of expensive devices, the technology uses the skin of the human body as an interface. Being are directly attached to the skin increases the possibility of providing more accurate information.  It is not a permanent implant. The paint can be easily washed off from the skin.[related-posts] – Advertisement – The electro-conductive paint applied to lay the tattoo, helps in acquiring data from temperature sensors. The tattoo can detect early signs of fever (see video) as well as track the user’s heart rate and location.Eric Schneider, the creative technologist behind ‘Tech Tats’ confirmed that the device can be used once a year for routine health check-up. The tattoo will collect all the relevant data from the users’ body and directly send it to the clinic. This is cheaper alternative to other health monitoring devices available in the market.CEO Ben Lamm told Tech Crunch, the Tech Tats can also be used for military purposes. It can detect poison levels in the air, stresses based on sweat, heart rate and hydration level of a soldier.

STAR PREVIEW Brighton v Newcastle

first_imgWhilst all eyes have been towards the head of the Premier League – and how thrilling it has been – there’s still the big matter of a relegation battle at the bottom. Following the relegation of Fulham and Huddersfield, only one side can still go down, and two teams are fighting to stay up.One of them is Brighton, who are just three points ahead of Cardiff following their last gasp defeat at Tottenham this week. That was their sixth defeat in seven games, and another situation in which they offered precious little going forward. Chris Hughton’s strategy of sitting deep as possible and sneaking a point almost worked twice against high class opposition, but today we will have to see more from Pascal Gross, Florin Andone and Alireza Jahanbakhsh.After today’s encounter, Albion face title chasing Manchester City and top four hunting Arsenal, so this is really more of a nine pointer, especially given that Cardiff have fixtures against already relegated Fulham and then host Crystal Palace before facing Manchester United.Necessity does not guarantee victory however, and Newcastle come here in good form. They were deserved 3-1 winners over Southampton at the weekend, with an Ayoze Perez hat-trick capping off a clinical performance.

Gates Foundation Donates 210M to University of Washington

first_img  LINKEDINPINTERESTREDDITTUMBLRSTUMBLEUPON   Share Gates Foundation Donates $210M to University of Washington By The Associated Press October 25, 2016 Updated: October 25, 2016 US SEATTLE—The University of Washington is getting $210 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to help build a new facility to advance efforts to improve the health and well-being of people around the world, officials said Tuesday.The donation from the largest private foundation in the world, located just miles from the Seattle campus, is the largest single gift in the university’s history.The new building will serve as a research hub for faculty and others working on an ambitious new population health initiative to address challenges such as poverty, health care access, equity and climate change. The total facility cost is $230 million.“This is really much more than about a building,” UW President Ana Mari Cauce said in an interview last week. “The building is really about catalyzing a vision—an initiative that we launched last spring to really be first in the world in terms of population health.”The initiative pulls together research and resources from across campus and disciplines to help people live longer, healthier and more productive lives.Students walk near a statue of George Washington on campus at the University of Washington in Seattle, in this file photo. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren, File) Students walk near a statue of George Washington on campus at the University of Washington in Seattle, in this file photo. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren, File) The efforts recognize that the health of a person or community is more than about the lack of disease; it encompasses everything from education, the environment, politics and quality of life including performance arts, Cauce added.The university has an opportunity as well as an obligation to find solutions to those pressing challenges, and a new building would allow researchers, students and other partners to come together to work on them, Cauce said.“We’re in a very privileged position and I think we have the obligation to take this on,” she said. “What happens around the world matters to us and vice versa.”Seattle in particular is well-poised to tackle the issues of global health because of the research happening on campus in the surrounding community, she said.The region, known for its biomedical research, is home to dozens of organizations that work on global and population health and it is also the headquarters for Gates Foundation.The new building, expected to open in fall of 2020, would include space for the UW’s public health and global health departments, as well as the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, which is currently located off-campus. center_img Share this article Bill and Melinda Gates talk to reporters in New York on Feb. 22, 2016.

Warren, File) The efforts recognize that the health of a person or community is more than about the lack of disease; it encompasses everything from education, the environment, politics and quality of life including performance arts, Cauce added.The university has an opportunity as well as an obligation to find solutions to those pressing challenges, and a new building would allow researchers, students and other partners to come together to work on them, Cauce said.“We’re in a very privileged position and I think we have the obligation to take this on,” she said. “What happens around the world matters to us and vice versa.”Seattle in particular is well-poised to tackle the issues of global health because of the research happening on campus in the surrounding community, she said.The region, known for its biomedical research, is home to dozens of organizations that work on global and population health and it is also the headquarters for Gates Foundation.The new building, expected to open in fall of 2020, would include space for the UW’s public health and global health departments, as well as the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, which is currently located off-campus. center_img Share this article Bill and Melinda Gates talk to reporters in New York on Feb. 22, 2016.

White House Aware of Potential Negative Impacts of Iran Deal Review

first_img WASHINGTON—The White House is aware of “potential negative impacts” from a review ordered by President Donald Trump of whether lifting sanctions through the Iran nuclear deal was in U.S. national security interests, his spokesman said on Wednesday.Asked at a news briefing if Trump had decided to pull out of the 2015 deal, WhiteHouse spokesman Sean Spicer said the 90-day inter-agency review, announced on Tuesday, would make recommendations on the path forward.The agreement between Iran and six world powers, negotiated during Barack Obama’s presidency, placed limitations on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for lifting international oil and financial sanctions against Iran.During his presidential campaign, Trump called the agreement “the worst deal ever negotiated.”Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei warned in November that Tehran would retaliate if the United States breached the nuclear agreement.Asked if the White House was concerned that tougher sanctions on Iran could motivate it to violate the agreement, Spicer said: “We’re well aware of any potential negative impacts that an action could have. “Regardless whether it’s an economic, political or military action you always weigh those kinds of actions.”Related CoverageUS: Iran Complies With Nuke Deal but Orders Review on Lifting SanctionsDefense Secretary Mattis Slams Iran, Says Will Overcome InfluenceWhen Spicer was questioned whether Trump was concerned Iran was cheating on the deal, he said “That’s why he’s asking for this review.
