SKYHIGH PRICES: Thanksgiving dinner cooked by inflation

Published

Experts say it could be the most expensive Thanksgiving in history

As inflation rages on— experts say Thanksgiving 2022 could be the most expensive in American history.

This year, a feast for 10 people could be 20% more expensive than last year thanks to red-hot inflation.

According to a Farm Bureau survey, the price tag for a Thanksgiving meal itself cost $53.31 in 2021 but has jumped to $64.05 in 2022.

Shoppers in the U.S. say they’re really feeling the squeeze as costs keep going up but, President Joe Biden is still insisting there’s no need to panic.

“As we head into the holidays, this week we saw growth in prices in the business and in goods and services to come down as well, gas prices are down,” he said.

“But it’s going to take time to get inflation back to normal levels as we keep our job market strong so we can see setbacks along the way—I don’t doubt that but thus far we’re in good shape.”

However, families across the nation are paying significantly more this year for their holiday dinners.

When compared to last year, a sixteen-pound turkey costs $28.96 which is up 21%; a 14-ounce bag of stuffing mix is going for $3.88 which is up 69%; and two frozen pie crusts cost $3.68 which is up 26%.

Boston Dynamics’ electric marvel or robot contortionist?

Published

on

Boston Dynamics has recently unveiled its latest creation, the electric Atlas robot, boasting enhanced agility and strength.

However, with its uncanny ability to contort and rise from the ground with an almost eerie grace, one might wonder if we’re witnessing the birth of the world’s first robot contortionist.

As this technological marvel flaunts its capabilities, one can’t help but ponder if we’re on the brink of a future where household chores will be effortlessly handled by robots moving like a fusion of ballet dancers and horror movie monsters.

With its cadaver-like movements and illuminated head, it’s hard not to speculate whether Atlas is destined to revolutionise robotics or simply rehearsing for a techno-horror rendition of The Nutcracker. As Boston Dynamics continues to push the boundaries of robotics, the line between science fiction and reality becomes increasingly blurred.

The Coffee confusion causing health concerns

As the morning sun peeks through the curtains, many reach for that familiar brew, kickstarting their day with a comforting cup of coffee.

It’s a ritual ingrained in cultures worldwide, offering a jolt of energy to combat the grogginess of dawn.

But when is the optimal time for that caffeine fix? According to registered dietitian Anthony DiMarino, RD, LD, the answer isn’t crystal clear.

Some experts suggest delaying that first sip until mid-morning or later. However, DiMarino reassures coffee lovers that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this dilemma.

Meanwhile, the science behind coffee production unveils fascinating insights into its instant variant. Whether produced through freeze-drying or spray-drying methods, instant coffee offers convenience without sacrificing flavor.

Yet, beyond convenience, recent studies delve deeper into coffee’s impact on our bodies. Research exploring the acute effects of decaffeinated versus caffeinated coffee reveals intriguing findings on reaction time, mood, and skeletal muscle strength.

Moreover, investigations into the gut microbiome shed light on coffee’s influence on liver cirrhosis patients. A study analyzing the duodenal microbiome in this population found correlations between coffee consumption and microbial richness and evenness.

So, as you sip your coffee and ponder the day ahead, consider not just the flavour in your cup but also the subtle impacts it may have on your body and mind.
