The story is known . Chinese immigrants came to this country in 1849 or so. Some were hired as cooks and soon began to apply his techniques in the kitchen. Thus were born the chaufas and skipped vegetables. The ridge itself came a few years later, with the inclusion of meat cuts and then, much later, the French fries .

The recipe is simple and requires little preparation time. The secret is in the wok and flambéed says Laura Israel , chef of the restaurant 550. For the cook, the lomo saltado is a dish emblem of our kitchen and realized that during his stay in Spain, where many fellow just missed the taste.

If we want our meat retains its texture and juiciness is necessary to use a good cut. "The sirloin is great," he says. You have to cut into medium sized pieces so that the flavor can be well appreciated. "Rectangular pieces of three or five centimeters."

Alcohol does not help to forget,instead helps to remind more

Alcohol does not help to forget,instead helps to remind more

Alcohol as the companion to the time to forget is a curious contradiction, because a study of the Waggoner Center for Alcohol and Addictions at the University of Texas has shown that drinking alcohol stimulates certain areas of our brain involved in learning and memory.

Hitoshi Morikawa, a neurobiologist, has been published in the Journal of Neuroscience article on alcohol, says "reduces our conscious ability to recall information such as name of a friend, the definition of a word or where you parked the car, but our subconscious learns and remember too, and alcohol increases our ability to remember at this level. " Experiments demonstrated that ethanol exposure increases in synaptic plasticity of neurons in key brain area for memory. In fact, alcoholics are not addicted to the pleasure of drinking, but they are addicted to the pleasure they get from the psychological experience of being drunk who entertains us with the behavior and environment surrounded by low consumption of alcohol.

Alcohol helps memory learning and leisure curoosidades
"We often think of dopamine as a neurotransmitter of happiness, but in reality is a neurotransmitter linked to learning," says neuroscientist. "Its main purpose is to strengthen synapses that are active while releasing" he adds. According to Morikawa, when we drink alcohol dopminérgico system is stimulated, which "tells our brain that what you are doing at that moment is rewarding to be remembered and repeated." "Going to the bar, chatting with friends, eating certain foods and listen to certain music is also rewarding." Therefore, "the more we do these things while we drink alcohol more dopamine is released and becomes more addictive experiences all around the consumption of this drug," concludes the researcher.

The water in 7 out of 10 bottles contained more bacteria than tap water.

This research was conducted in Canada, buying more than 50 different brands of water, finding that 70% of bottled water brands contain high levels of bacteria. The researchers of the laboratory in Canada discovered that Crest tap water of any house contained less bacteria than the 70%.

Dr. Sonish Azam, a microbiologist at the lab, I argue that bottled water was not analyzed at the level of slogans with which it advertises, and found some bottles in quantities of one hundred times higher limit.
She needed to assure tighter controls on water bottling companies. When consumers expect the water is free of microorganisms, really the result of this study is very different. It is so bad that even the tap water contains less bacteria.
