A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Milk proteins can bind with the beneficial plant compounds known as flavonols in tea. (You may have heard these compounds referred to by specific names such as catechins.) And, according to some scientists, the binding may make it tough for the body to absorb the flavonols and get the health benefits. -NPR article
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/3/14 10:21am Adrian in London:

@bob Plenty of people. I drink Japanese green tea – bancha – myself. Not roasted like sencha, has a grassier taste that takes some getting used to.

@Trouble: Ha ha, no I don;t have any royal commemorative mugs. I think I had a Charles and Di one when I was little. God, all these repressed memories!
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 6/3/14 10:22am bobdoesthings:

i got my first royalty mug at a yard sale, it was a charles and diana for a dollar. i was hooked. surprisingly easy to find once you are looking. although once a fave broke so we took to the internets and then, o the opportunities for purchase...
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 6/3/14 10:23am bobdoesthings:

@adrian.. me too! I like sencha and gyokuro - but milk in tea kills any health benefits the tea has.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/3/14 10:25am Adrian in London:

@DC Pat: I can only apologise…
@bob Hmm, that's interesting. I don't drink any milk at all. There was a thing on UK TV a few weeks ago about dark chocolate and the supposed health benefits. But turns out that a bar of the same brand can contain differing levels of the, er, good stuff, depending on the make-up of the bar itself, the quality of the confiture etc.

Yeah, @NGH, it's that general class of issues which has me adding dairy to my coffee, in a manner inconsistent with the ways of most who love coffee as much as I do. I really really love the taste of good coffee, but (especially brewed) coffee rips right through me if I don't buffer it with something milky.[1]

It's still really tasty. And I don't need to adulterate a well-pulled espresso shot - an excellent espresso ristretto is really the perfect beverage entirely by itself.

Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I'm a constituent who lives in [YOUR CITY].

I am calling because I'm a strong supporter of Net Neutrality and think the FCC needs to reclassify broadband.

But Rep. Sires shamefully sold constituents like me out to AT&T, Comcast and Version by signing his name to an industry-backed letter telling the FCC to kill Net Neutrality.

Rep. Sires shouldn't double down on this sellout by supporting Rep. Bob Latta's bill (H.R. 4752), which would strip the FCC's authority to reclassify broadband. If he does, I will hold him accountable.

regarding net neutrality
Avatar Tue. 6/3/14 11:23am thunderish' Jay:

appriceate the struggle for net neutrality.. even tough i guess conduminium or a number of neighbours could get together and solve this by buying a expensive package as a whole
Avatar Tue. 6/3/14 11:24am thunderish' Jay:

just saying .. of course to the future i see net as free and fast so i dont see wheres this strange legislation coming
Avatar Tue. 6/3/14 11:25am thunderish' Jay:

sort of like as with electricity it could be different.. i think again, the whole story is not being told cuz its not them who will write it .. they wont succeed holding back the web as free and fast
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 6/3/14 11:26am Andrew Waterloo:

@thunderish' Jay.. the problem isn't at the user side, it's at the content side. Without net neutrality it could be financially impossible for a startup to compete against Netflix or Youtube simply on the ground that they can't afford to pay for the fast lane.
Avatar Tue. 6/3/14 11:27am thunderish' Jay:

ok i see it now .. in a big proportion its horrendous.. capital monopolism or few availability of spots.. control people.. fight it!
Avatar Tue. 6/3/14 11:29am Van in DC:

Yes on the content side. That is why Trouble was referring to hearing her voice over the net (like I do), and being ABLE to do so...

  Tue. 6/3/14 11:29am Eric:

@thunderish: It's not about what we pay. It's about Netflix paying Comcast big bucks so Netflix movies stream fast, while FMU comes through crappy. Or the NYTImes loading fast on your mobile, while Independent News Source comes up slow.

Some of the matches are on ABC, do a search on US tv listings. Go to a bar too. I take dc pat, jr to our local bar...
Avatar Tue. 6/3/14 11:41am northguineahills:

Most WC games I've watched at various drinking establishments had a lot of kids there. Outside of the alcohol, they were rather kid friendly. (of course, this is in Brooklyn)

You can try First Row Sports...it's questionable and there are a gazillion ads, but I use it for the Devils and Giants.

or go to portuguese sports club in Newark just off ferry street near Penn Sta. Its kid friendly. At least you can see the portuguese games there and they are in the USA group...see you there!

DCP, they're showing games outside in Dupont Circle at some point.

Most big sporting matches, including the World Cup, can be viewed (free!) online.

The stream is of dubious legality -- from somewhere in Eastern Europe I think -- but I've been watching for several years to no bad effect on my computer. They've managed to pirate the feeds of all the big cable networks. Same commentators -- English, Spanish, French, German.

Avatar Tue. 6/3/14 11:44am d¢ pät:

ha "beet"...
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 6/3/14 11:45am Chris from DC:

Yep, in the Circle itself. Not sure how many or anything.
Avatar Tue. 6/3/14 11:46am d¢ pät:

You can do the pirate version but be careful, that's how you get insane viruses. I watch cycling events this way and the adds are all for young Russian brides, not kid appropriate.

speaking of beet wer are killing the bees by using pesticides / check greenpeace.org regularlyy please.. real efforts in mandatory petitions / or their facebook

Donovan didn't make the team--Klinsman made a mistake there. He's going to regret it but yeah Howard is good.

How do we stop a government that isn't governed by its own government? I don't know, but if they take away the internet, or make it so we're paying the very corporations we should be shunning, then I guess they win again. But the thing is...they don't have to. It's time for the people to win back this country.
