There is a controversy in our nation that goes to the very heart of what it means to celebrate Thanksgiving – is salting (also known as a dry brine) the best way to prepare your Thanksgiving bird? Or does soaking the turkey in a wet brine yield the best results?
Researching this issue is easy in one important way – the researcher is very unlikely to find material with a hidden agenda. There are no forces of “Big Brine,” abroad in the land, posting misleading websites on “objective” studies of the salting vs. brining variety. Any material found in a simple internet search is likely to be the honest opinion of cooks.
Here is a link to a set of search results from Dogpile, a metasearch engine. Here you will find many links to sites that examine this important questions and come to a conclusion. However, they do not come to the same conclusion. The controversy rages on.
- Make-up Workshops – Secondary Sources, Researching Cases & How to Shepardize (Citators);
- Possible noise from the Atrium on Friday, 7:00pm – 10pm;
- Hotdog Wednesday sponsored by the Library & IT, with dessert donations from Lexis & Westlaw.
Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.
With the bar and finals approaching, most of you probably view the arrival of yet another weekend with both dread and delight! Dread that there are only a few more weekends between you and the exams; delight that you are almost done. Dread that there is so much more you have to study; delight that you might be able to do something fun or get some much needed rest. Dread that you are going to waste time this weekend, delight that you have time to waste this weekend….While it is important to be prepared for your exams, it is also important to pace yourself and take breaks—both physical and mental so that you do not burn out!!
With a little planning, your time can be both well-spent and well-wasted!
So, here are some fun choices….
For me, this weekend is all about Spidey! Watch the Amazing Spider-Man in action at a theater near you or the IMAX to enjoy spine-tingling special effects and rate your spider senses. However, if a masked superhero is not your cup of tea, how about a crusader of a different mettle? Learn what law and justice really means from Atticus Finch as he takes on the case of his life in the classic, To Kill a Mockingbird.
Enjoy the hot weather! Go to the beach and get some sun (don’t forget the sunblock), or take advantage of summer deals like the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens’ offer of tickets at half-price for those days that the temperature is predicted to hit 92 or higher. Make sure you print the coupon from their website before you visit the Zoo. In addition, the grand opening of the Riverside Arts Market is on Saturday.
No matter what you decide to do this weekend, remember to spend some time well-wasted!!
Are you addicted to groupons? Do you crave that rush you get every time you know that you’re going to get a dinner for half price? Me too! However, there is one small drawback to the wonderful world of groupons. What if you get all excited to try a new restaurant at a ridiculous value, only to find that the food is terrible? Or worse yet, you don’t buy the groupon to a fantastic restaurant because you are unfamiliar with the place, and all your friends keep describing the fantastic experience you missed. Well, the answer to your prayers was right there all along. http://www.yelp.com/jacksonville-fl
