  • Got any lemonade?

  • Google Maps tests new pop-up ads that give you an unnecessary detour (Update)
  • I used to live in Maryland and work in Northern Virginia. It was a 42 mile drive, but a fast commute was 90 minutes, but could be over 3 hours. I wish I had gps back then to give me traffic info and route navigation.

  • Marbled Bricks? Apparently Lego wants them destroyed...
  • As much as I would like one, at that price I would get 10020 Santa Fe Super Chief

  • Is it possible to add a tab on instances to see their local communities?

    Currently you cannot view the local communities when viewing their instance from within Mlem. This is particularly nice for niche instances such as the one in the image, as well as ones like mtgzone.

  • Mine are currently all in storage. I have the OG like yours and the newer version as well. I also have SEGA cds for both, and a 3rd system with a 32x.

  • Rescued a plant, maybe Hibiscus?

    I was helping a friend move and she said she was having no luck with this plant. She said it barely stays alive and never really does well. She said it might be a hibiscus.

    Seek thinks that is a possibility too.

    I saved a few other plants recently, hopefully I can save this one too.

    Map making software that you can import your own base map? (MacOS)

    I have been working on building my own world, likely for 5e. I started working on the physical world and have been doing little snipets of land that I can later resize, and move around the final map until I am happy with it. I thought I could upload my own maps into inkarnate but I see no such option.

    Are there any map editors that will let me do this? Even if it is just as a background bit that I can trace over. I have been using old topography maps of the area around my hometown and other places I have lived and am really liking the land masses I have and would rather not have to try and recreate them.

    I am using a Mac, so I would prefer web based since most things do not get a mac release.

    Buffalo Ranch Paneer or Tofu Wrap

    1/4 block of paneer or tofu 1-2 leafs of lettuce (I prefer iceberg) Ranch dressing (I use hidden valley powder mixed with sour cream and milk) Hot sauce of choice (I use Frank’s Buffalo Wing sauce) Diced Tomato 2 burrito sized wheat flour tortilla or other wrap (mine are about 10” diameter)

    Cube your paneer or tofu so the pieces are roughly the same size (I cut my paneer into 16 pieces so there are 8 cubes per wrap). Pan or air fry until just starting to brown.

    Mix ranch and hot sauce in a bowl while paneer/tofu cook. Once paneer/tofu are cooked toss the cubes in the ranch hot sauce into evenly coated, if you do not have enough sauce add more now.

    Heat tortillas over stove flame (if you have an electric stove use a comal) until they start to take on some color and puff a little bit. Split lettuce and tomatoes into two equal servings, add one serving to each tortilla.

    Add your paneer/tofu on top of the lettuce and tomatoes, then add extra sauce. Wrap it all up and enjoy.

    If I have a ripe avocado I will add that too. Sometimes I add a couple strips of morning star farms veggie bacon, or a couple drops of liquid smoke for some extra flavor. I have also added diced onions.

    Chipotle Mayo (ovo)

    Ingredients: 1 egg 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon acid (I used lemon juice, but vinegar works too) 1+ chipotle in adobo sauce (I used 4) 3/4c olive oil

    Directions: Put all ingredients in a wide mouth jar or beaker if you have one, ensuring your opening is large enough for your stick/immersion blender

    Fully submerge a stick blender and begin blending starting at the bottom, after a short time start slowly moving the blender upward until everything is blended and the oil has emulsified into mayo.

    This likely could be made vegan by replacing the egg with another emulsifier, I think lecithin will work. I am not familiar with using it, so use at your own risk.

Hot sauce

    Directions:

Stir in garlic, chipotle, paprika, thyme, bay leaves, cayenne, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in beans and 9 cups water and bring to boil over high heat.

    Federal wildlife officials have declared a rare lizard in southeastern New Mexico and West Texas an endangered species

    New endangered listing for rare lizard could slow oil and gas drilling in New Mexico and West Texas

    Federal wildlife officials declared a rare lizard in southeastern New Mexico and West Texas an endangered species Friday, citing future energy development, sand mining and climate change as the biggest threats to its survival in one of the world’s most lucrative oil and natural gas basins.

    “We have determined that the dunes sagebrush lizard is in danger of extinction throughout all of its range,” the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said. It concluded that the lizard already is “functionally extinct” across 47% of its range.

    Much of the the 2.5-inch-long (6.5-centimeter), spiny, light brown lizard's remaining habitat has been fragmented, preventing the species from finding mates beyond those already living close by, according to biologists.

    “Even if there were no further expansion of the oil and gas or sand mining industry, the existing footprint of these operations will continue to negatively affect the dunes sagebrush lizard into the future,” the service said in its final determination, published in the Federal Register.

    The decision caps two decades of legal and regulatory skirmishes between the U.S. government, conservationists and the oil and gas industry. Environmentalists cheered the move, while industry leaders condemned it as a threat to future production of the fossil fuels.

    The decision provides a “lifeline for survival” for a unique species whose “only fault has been occupying a habitat that the fossil fuel industry has been wanting to claw away from it,” said Bryan Bird, the Southwest director for Defenders of Wildlife.

    “The dunes sagebrush lizard spent far too long languishing in a Pandora’s box of political and administrative back and forth even as its population was in free-fall towards extinction,” Bird said in a statement.

    The Permian Basin Petroleum Association and the New Mexico Oil & Gas Association expressed disappointment, saying the determination flies in the face of available science and ignores longstanding state-sponsored conservation efforts across hundreds of thousands of acres and commitment of millions of dollars in both states.

    “This listing will bring no additional benefit for the species and its habitat, yet could be detrimental to those living and working in the region,” PBPA President Ben Shepperd and NMOGA President and CEO Missi Currier said in a joint statement, adding that they view it as a federal overreach that can harm communities.

    Joost Klein faces "criminal intimidation" charge: Swedish media - DutchNews.nl

    Joost Klein, the Dutch entrant for this month’s Eurovision Song Contest, denies all the charges which led to him being thrown out of the competition, his lawyer Jan-Åke Fält has told Swedish media.

    Klein, whose song Europapa was one of the competition favourites, was disqualified on Saturday after an incident at Thursday’s rehearsal between him and a camerawoman. He now faces being charged with “criminal intimidation”, according to Swedish media.

    Swedish police said earlier that they were accelerating the prosecution process because they consider the evidence to be strong and because the offence is not more serious.

    But Fält told local reporters Klein denies wrongdoing. “As I understand it, there was an agreement between him and the event management,” he said. “It was a sensitive occasion where he was not to be photographed leaving the stage. He should have been met just by his team but there was photographer standing there. He asked the person to stop filming.”

    The photographer, says Fält, did not listen to Klein who then pushed the camera away to get rid of it. “He denies having threatened this person,” the lawyer said.

    Fält said a preliminary trial date had been set for early June but that the police are not yet finished with their investigation.

    “We have been informed of the investigation and now have the opportunity to comment on it,” he said. “We will request that some Dutch people appear as witnesses…I think the chances of him being acquitted are good.”

    The European Broadcasting Union issued a statement on Tuesday saying that the Dutch version of events did not correspond with the witness accounts.

    “Joost’s behaviour was in clear breach of contest rules, which are designed to ensure there is a safe working environment for all staff and to protect the production,” the EBU statement said.
