News You Can Lose


"'I might give up (next year),' he said. 'If I do attend it next year, I will give up my last name Liang if I fail.'"

The exam loser formerly known as Liang. Just give up and become a communist party member and get your way through that.
 

“'White people food' still has many detractors in a country with a long and rich culinary tradition.

'It’s absurd for an adult to eat this for daily nutrition,' said Xianglan Huo, a college student in the southern city of Kunming. 'The portion is not even enough for my cat.'

'It’s too cruel to the body,' Huo said. 'I prefer rich cuisines.'"

Okay I will keep my croque monsieur of bechamel, dijon, madrange ham, and gruyere cheese to myself then.
 

"The dancers accused Lizzo — a performer known for embracing body positivity and celebrating her physique — of calling attention to one dancer’s weight gain and later berating, then firing, that dancer after she recorded a meeting because of a health condition."

Fat on fat hate.
 

"So, she gave him a box of peanut butter and honey crackers, two protein drinks and two tangerines.

Perkins dialed 911 on her rotary phone and was talking to a dispatcher while the intruder collected his pants and left. He left behind a knife, shirt, shoes and a water bottle containing alcohol, she said."

For a minute I thought she made him a meal, he became rejuvenated and the struggle resumed.
 

"'Amarena was a symbol of the park,' said Piero Genovesi, head of Italy's wildlife service Ispra. 'Everybody loved her. She was so frequently observed; she was never aggressive.'"

Definitely a poacher. Orders were placed in China or Africa.
 

"The best-preserved parts were built during the Ming Dynasty between the 14th and 17th centuries. It is one of these that now has a huge new hole blasted through it.
...
The oldest portions, dating back thousands of years, were rammed earth walls and now appear as mounds, not even immediately recognisable as the Great Wall. Much of the degradation of the wall has been attributed to local farmers stealing bricks or stones to build houses or animal pens."

Top quality judgment. You have to wonder how their engineering/infrastructure aid to the rest of the world works.
 


99.9% certain this is Bar Raval where they resell tins from Conservas de Cambados. The restaurant was built by a local restauranteur/former chef who went to Barcelona for a soul searching trip before starting that venture. But of course this one preferred to get Clover Leaf or something.

"Lisa, another passenger, told CNN that her biggest fear at the moment is running out of alcohol, but if the worst did happen, she had a back-up plan."

I just came back from the local aquarium and there was a whole section on Franklin's expedition to the Arctic. Good to know Lisa here knows her priorities when she's stuck on a ship there.

B nations rejoice. 1970s technology is finally available to y'all.
 

"Cmdr. Brian Jensen of the Joint Arctic Command told Greenland broadcaster KNR that the ship is likely to go to Iceland, the closest place with large ports.

'Now it is exciting to find out what the condition of the ship is,' Jensen was quoted as saying by KNR. 'They are in the process of investigating whether the ship is intact and seaworthy and ready to sail on.'"

Exciting? I'm not sure that's the right term for it. Or maybe if it's not seaworthy it is exciting because you get to experience what the people who sailed Titanic went through. Hopefully there's no excursion fee for that.
 

"Mr Fekete had initially claimed that he alone had consumed two sandwiches, two coffees and two pasta dishes during a business trip to Amsterdam.
But he later admitted that his partner had shared some meals."

"All my expenses are within the €100 daily allowance. Could you please outline what your concern is as I don't think I have to justify my eating habits to this extent."

I guess George Clooney's Up in the Air tactic of maximising his rewards points whilst on company travel isn't going to work.
 
Why wouldn't I just wear my own suit and tie instead of buying a costume of some douchebag consultancy that in the history of consultancies never actually did nor executed anything?
