By Merrill Shindler | [email protected] | PUBLISHED: April 11, 2019 at 12:13 pm | UPDATED: April 11, 2019 at 12:18 pm The other day, reading through the always entertaining British rag called The Sun, I came upon a description of a new pizza just introduced at a London pizza chain called Eco. It’s called “The Hopper.” For about $35, you get a pie topped with eight frogs’ legs, capers and an anchovy sorbet. The inventor, Chef Sami Wasif, came up with the idea while on a trip to Paris. He calls it “refined,” adding that, “I’ve been making pizza for more than 20 years, and I know that London is a city always looking for something new. Pizza is something you can experiment with. I might try one with snails on it next.” Now, frogs’ leg pizza may be a bit outré. But in the world of strange pizza toppings, it barely registers. In Japan, epicenter of odd pizzas, the list of curious ingredients is extensive — a quick web … [Read more...] about Best pizza in the South Bay: 8 great places for winning pies

Ivy Lawson never imagined she would open a business in Boston’s North End. Born in Jamaica and raised in Hyde Park, she said that as a kid growing up in Boston she knew that the city’s Italian neighborhood wasn’t considered a place where she was welcome. She recalled that as a teen in the ’70s, during the years of Boston’s busing crisis, she would stand across from the neighborhood with one of her friends, who was Italian. “Of course the Rose Kennedy Greenway wasn’t there, Haymarket wasn’t the same, but we used to stand on the other side,” Lawson said. “And me, being a black person, she would run and get us pizza slices and go back. I remember that as teenagers we used to do that. We didn’t come to this section of the North End. You just didn’t, because it wasn’t, like, allowable.” But yet decades later, on Nov. 19, she opened a storefront for her business, Ivyees “Everything Honey,” on a … [Read more...] about ‘I’m not trying to be anybody’s hero or anybody’s pioneer’: Ivy Lawson is making history with her honey shop in the North End

Victor Caivano and Peter Prengaman, Associated Press Published 9:04 pm PST, Tuesday, December 4, 2018 PALMEIRAS, Brazil (AP) — Roy Funch, an American botanist who has lived and worked in Brazil's hardscrabble northeast for decades, long looked at huge cone-shaped mounds of mud in the distance and wonder. What built them? How many were there? How long had they been there? After years of failing to generate interest in the mounds, a chance meeting with an English expert on social insects, Stephen Martin, led to remarkable discoveries: There are over 200 million mounds built by termites that stretch across 88,800 square miles (230,000 square kilometers), about the size of Great Britain. What's more, some of the dirt heaps are nearly 4,000 years old. "While the Romans were building their columns, their buildings, these termites were building their mounds," Funch said, adding that the dirt piles represent the largest bioconstruction of any species other than humans. … [Read more...] about In Brazil backlands, termites built millions of dirt mounds
