Brooklyn Breakfast Restaurant Egg to Permanently Close This Weekend

Torri Donley

Longstanding Williamsburg breakfast hotspot Egg will be permanently shutting down at the end of the month, owner George Weld has announced. The restaurant will serve its last meals on September 27.

Weld tells Eater that the shutdown was “partly a financial decision, and partly a concern for public health and the health of our staff.”

The restaurant has been doing takeout and delivery, plus outdoor dining, for the past several months. While takeout and delivery has gone “better than expected,” Weld says, it still only accounted for about 25 percent of Egg’s regular revenue. For outdoor dining, the restaurant was only able to set up four tables outside due to the location’s small street frontage area.

And even though indoor dining is set to return at 25 percent capacity on September 30, Weld didn’t feel that it was a viable option for the restaurant. The revenue generated from operating service

World Food Programme Wins Nobel Peace Prize

Torri Donley

The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the World Food Programme on Friday for feeding millions of people from Yemen to North Korea, as the coronavirus pandemic pushes millions more into hunger.

The WFP was “a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict”, Nobel committee chairwoman Berit Reiss-Andersen said on unveiling the winner in Oslo.

“This is a powerful reminder to the world that peace and #ZeroHunger go hand-in-hand,” the Rome-based organisation said on Twitter, with executive director David Beasley adding in a video: “This is the first time in my life I’ve been speechless.”

Nicola Sturgeon admits ‘lack of clarity’ as cafes are exempted from bar and restaurant shutdown

Torri Donley

Last-minute changes to Scotland’s new coronavirus restrictions which will allow cafes to stay open if they do not sell alcohol have created a “lack of clarity”, Nicola Sturgeon has admitted.

Pubs and licensed restaurants across the country’s central belt will be forced to close for all but takeaway service for 16 days from 6pm on Friday.

But the first minister later revealed cafes will be exempt from the shutdown if they do not sell booze – triggering ongoing questions about how exactly a cafe is defined.

Speaking at the Scottish government’s coronavirus briefing on Friday, Ms Sturgeon acknowledged the frustration but said the new measures attempted to strike a balance between saving lives and protecting the economy.

Squirrel Beer, Poop Wine: ‘Disgusting Food Museum’ Opens Drinks Exhibition

Torri Donley

Beer bottled in a dead squirrel. Gin infused with ants. More beer, brewed with whale testicles smoked in sheep dung. And you thought you were an “adventurous” drinker.

The Disgusting Food Museum in Malmö, Sweden, delighted and repulsed us with frog juice and maggot cheese when it opened two years ago, and now comes word it’s devoting an entire new exhibition to, erm, challenging alcoholic beverages.

“We conducted intense research for several months, online and in books, to find the most interesting and thought-provoking alcohol types,” museum director Andreas Ahrens told Unfiltered. “Some of them, we were able to get from their manufacturers,” like the whale-genital beer, an ale called Hvalur 2 from the Steðji brewery

The body was rewarded for “its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict,” said Berit Reiss-Andersen, the chair of the Nobel Committee.

In 2019, the Rome-based organization provided assistance to close to 100 million people in 88 countries who are victims of acute food insecurity and hunger. It is the U.N.’s largest specialized agency and the world’s biggest humanitarian group addressing hunger and promoting food security.

“In the face of the pandemic, the World Food Program has demonstrated an impressive ability to intensify its efforts,” Reiss-Andersen added.

SDE deputy chair: Budget catering to the elite, overlooking families coping | News

Torri Donley

The salaries of medical professionals and teachers will not be hiked, the Unemployment Insurance Fund will not be allocated additional funding and European subsidies are still poured into concrete and real estate projects of party sponsors. What is worse – unprecedented volumes of loan money will not be used to effect a single meaningful reform that would help boost the general living standard or make Estonia more successful.

The state budget is supposed to answer the question of how to overcome the crisis as a nation and state. Will people be forced to settle for a lower standard of living and the economy allowed to languish or will we forcefully overhaul Estonia’s labor and economic policy? The latter also means possibilities of working from home or access to retraining so people could find or create new jobs.

The budget can be used to inspire companies to implement solutions that make

The 2020 Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the U.N.’s World Food Program

Torri Donley

The Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize early Friday to the World Food Program (WFP), the largest specialized United Nations agency, “for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas, and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict.”

“In 2019, 135 million people suffered from acute hunger, the highest number in many years,” and “most of the increase was caused by war and armed conflict,” the Nobel Committee said. “The link between hunger and armed conflict is a vicious circle: war and conflict can cause food insecurity and hunger, just as hunger and food insecurity can cause latent conflicts to flare up and trigger the use of violence. We will never achieve the goal of zero hunger unless we also put an end to war
