Antipasto Salad at PizzeRizzo

first_imgShare This!It is a foregone conclusion that most pizza at Disney will not win any culinary award. So if your Muppet-obsessed family wants to take you to PizzeRizzo in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and you want to skip the pizza, how is the salad option?On the menu is an Antipasto Salad, which Disney describes as:Tossed-to-order with Ham, Pepperoni, Kalamata Olives, Mozzarella, Tomatoes, Pepperoncini Peppers. Red Onion, Chopped Romaine, and House Vinaigrette(Fun fact, the online menu from Disney also lists salami in the salad, but it isn’t listed in the print menu. The salad does have salami, however.)Sounds like a great option? Well, if you like all of the ingredients in there, the good news is that this is a hearty salad with a great blend of flavors and tons of meat. The bad news? To me, “tossed to order” means that you can pick out the ingredients you want — or don’t want — in the salad and have it customized. Not a fan of onions? No worries, just ask for them to leave it out.Unfortunately, this is not the case — the “filling” was already pre-mixed and the salad couldn’t be customized. If there was something you wanted to pick out, you practically had to have tweezers to go through and dissect the salad.I realize that this reduces prep time for the salad to have everything already mixed and then tossed with the romaine and dressing to order, but as a person with a “selective eater”, this would have been a disaster in the making. If you like everything in this salad, it’s a good option. If you don’t, you’re better off sticking with the pizza.Photos: Christina Harrisonlast_img read more

After uproar, U.K. Parliament’s science committee now has a female member

first_imgThe United Kingdom’s House of Parliament in London, with the Big Ben clock tower. We are pleased to announce that our membership has been confirmed and @CommonsSTC is up and running: https://t.co/YniGfSyB07 pic.twitter.com/45uejKeTW6— Sci & Tech Committee (@CommonsSTC) September 12, 2017 An “embarrassed” Darren Jones, who was selected by the Labor Party to be a member of the science committee, told The Independent: “I normally refuse to take part in all male panels, which makes the makeup of this committee difficult for me.” He explained that no women in the Labor Party had volunteered to be on the science committee. “The main challenge is most of the women Labor MPs [members of Parliament] who have experience in this area are already busy doing other things.”Yesterday afternoon, Vicky Ford announced she was “chuffed to be elected.” Ford, the conservative MP for Chelmsford, U.K., was previously a member of the European Parliament where she was involved in setting up Horizon 2020, the European Union’s research funding program. Another slot was taken by Adam Holloway, conservative MP for Gravesham, U.K., who has a background in TV journalism.Lamb’s letter also asked the parties to review how they make nominations for committee membership “to encourage an appropriate gender-balance and wider diversity.” No response yet, according to a committee spokesperson. One chair on the panel remains to be filled, by the Labor Party. Jo Johnson, minister for universities and science, called for the situation to be resolved so that the science committee has “basic legitimacy.”The chair of the committee, Norman Lamb of the Liberal Democrat Party, quickly turned to damage control. “I think it’s essential that the committee has women in its membership,” he tweeted, explaining that the United Kingdom’s political parties are in charge of selecting committee members. Lamb wrote to the party whips yesterday urging them to include women in the nominations to fill three remaining chairs. Before dawn this past Tuesday morning, the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee tweeted that it was “pleased to announced our membership has been confirmed.” Parliamentary committees had been dissolved after the recent U.K. election, and now the panel was rolling out its new contingent of lawmakers. The only problem: All eight of the mostly smiling faces belonged to men.This made the science committee Parliament’s only panel without any women. In the previous Parliament, women made up 60% of the membership of the science committee, including its first chair.Many observers were dismayed. “My heart sank,” blogged Sarah Main, director of the Campaign for Science and Engineering in London. Physicist Athene Donald of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom opined in The Guardian: “It is not encouraging for young female scientists to see that parliament apparently cares so little about their futures that they couldn’t even come up with even that long-derided sole token woman.” Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)center_img Daniel Coomber/Flickr (CC BY-NC-ND 2.0) By Erik StokstadSep. 14, 2017 , 2:45 PM After uproar, U.K. Parliament’s science committee now has a female memberlast_img read more

Pregnant woman’s weird request to Beckham

first_imgFormer Spice girl Victoria Beckham was reportedly left stunned when a pregnant woman asked her footballer husband David to rub her stomach in a bid to encourage her unborn child to develop athletics skills.The 35-year-old soccer ace was asked by a mystery lady if he would mind performing the unusual act when the pair were in an elevator together at a New York hotel, reported the National Enquirer.”This woman boarded the elevator, saw David, got all delirious and then – acting like Victoria wasn’t even there – leaned over and said, ‘I’m pregnant… Could you rub my stomach so that maybe my unborn child will become a famous athlete like you?’,” said a source.”Before her man could answer, Victoria snapped, ‘You have got to be kidding! Do you know how many times women like you try that line? And look at you – I doubt you’re even pregnant,” the source added.The woman didn’t get her wish as the couple left the lift without her request being granted.Victoria, is currently believed to be trying to put on weight in an effort to get pregnant with a fourth child for her and David, with who she already has Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, seven and Cruz, five.last_img read more

Federer beats Djokovic to win seventh Dubai title

first_imgDefending champion Roger Federer won his seventh Dubai Championships title and second of the year in defeating top-ranked Novak Djokovic 6-3, 7-5 on Saturday.This marked the seventh consecutive year – 11th time in 13 years – that Federer or Djokovic won this title. The only other tournaments Federer won seven times are Wimbledon, and Halle, Germany, both on grass.”Ever since I won here the first time, I fell in love with the tournament,” Federer said. “The seventh is quite unbelievable. It sounds pretty crazy to me.”Federer, who has 84 career titles, won in Brisbane, Australia, in January.”He deserved it,” Djokovic said. “I expected that from him.”I knew he was going to chip and charge, come to the net, serve and volley.”The 5,000-seat stadium was sold out, but many more people were standing around at the top. They were treated to a high-caliber match. Federer needed five more aces to become just the fourth player since 1991 to serve 9,000 career aces. He served 12 in the final.He joined Goran Ivanisevic (10,183), Ivo Karlovic (9,375), and Andy Roddick (9,074) in cracking the 9,000 aces mark.”I even remember which one it was because I was counting them,” Federer said. “It was one of the swinger wides.”It’s nice to get past that so I don’t have to think about it ever again, or until the next thousand or so.”Federer saved all seven break points he faced, while Djokovic lost both break points he faced. Djokovic sailed a backhand long on break point in the eighth game of the first set.advertisementIn the second set, Djokovic had a 40-0 lead in the 11th game, but watched Federer rebound to break his serve with an inside out forehand crosscourt winner.”The first set belonged to me, but the second set belonged to him more, really,” Federer said. “It was a huge game at 5-all, 40-love for him.”I crawled my way back into that game and ended up breaking him,” Federer added. “That was big but the break points I saved were even bigger.”last_img read more
