Paprika In Hungary

Note that today's interviews on paprika galicia where recorded just prior to the global shutdowns pepperoni as the backbone of hungarian cooking as the crucial ingredient in chicken pepper. Cash and hardy hungarian stews from mild to hot. We'll find out why this spicy so central to hungarian identity. How to best buys and pepper on your trip and we're going to learn how you can spice up. Your own meals was well to get this education hungarian paprika. We're joined by to guide tonight studio from hungary. And leonard and george farkas anna and george. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having us thrill to be well. Thank you from coming all the way from budapest a long trip. And we're gonna talk about paprika. I mean when we think of hungary we don't know a lot about hungry sometimes. But we think of paprika. What's the connection actually public. A strong connection because it is actually from the american continent and it was The physician of christopher columbus or columbus who brought it to the old world to i not to hungary of course but to spain that through the commercials of the mediterranean sea it got to the ottoman empire and when the ottoman empire extended its political power to eastern century up. We glad to not only bad things that we also got things like the patrika. What are the coffee so paprika and cuffy came as your time in the ottoman empire in paprika actually from america via columbus actually us. So i like teasing are two members and americans who is. That's why to travel here. Righ- flying through the But i like my publisher hungary. There's something romantic about having paprika in hungary. And why does hungary embrace paprika. What does it mean to hungarian. I have great micro-climate lots of sunshine. And what is very important that when we got the paprika was a hot spice and it was the hungarians who grew the might version of it it is from the nineteen twenties when in a small. Get in sega. It was kind of discovered. And since then if you come to our covid market hall you can always buy tubers the mild paprika and the hot fabric honky now. George when i go to budapest i always go to the big market hall right. But it's the name of that. Hologhan bashar knocking hungarian big market or century. You can't miss it when you're a tornado in credits. The first one out of five actually that they built at the time. And what you're going to find is well everything that hungarian cook would want to find. But certainly find peppers. See when you look for the peppers in the market. Well actually. you're not looking for peppers you looking for paprika is already well there is. It is basically a huge difference because many people don't realize it in hungary. Everything is called paprika. Let it'd be around fat skinny red yellow sweet and hot so i'm a little confused. Then so because Is it a pepper or it is a but we call it paprika but we also called a powder paprika yes because when i think of peppers and my supermarket we've got yellow ones and green ones red ones and that all of that. We call paprika even if it's Any shape really And then you have. It already powdered. If you're looking for the paprika that you cook with powdered yes okay. So it's a very unique technique to powder because One of the things that you have to be extremely careful with how you approach paprika once you grind paprika after all the time you spent with it to become dry and ready to grind. You have to do it very slowly makers as soon as you pick up speed you burn the paprika and that remains throughout its lifetime because once you come to cook it again you have to be very careful with a not to burn it because then you just have to start over again tour guides from budapest anna leonard and george farkas are filling in on the importance of peppery cup in the cuisine of hungary right now on travel with rick steves. Okay so when we're talking about this have rica and i think it goes back the days when spaces were really important. I mean spice was big money in the early days of training today today at that time and originally now why was spaces in general very important economically for people well. It was a very important product. It was expensive at that time. It was not so easy to fly from one continent to other a trip two months of making food more interesting or is it a matter of preserving food actually spicy i got to the highest study stock chrissy those who had the opportunity to get products from far far away and paprika also i was introduced for the highest stock resi in hungary after people realised it is not poisonous because i it was considered a supposin and when they discovered that it has healing effect. You know it here the colorado and screw after it they started to make its production but it was a rarity and it was very expensive so at first who is just for the very wealthy and then you learn it. It helped as medicine against scurvy and cholera. Yes but also medication. Very often is a privilege of the wealthier class. Not available for everybody. Some
Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad

Sacks of cash in China picked up sacks of cash in Ukraine, and for a long time conservatives have been focused in on 100 Biden's activities with regard to charisma.

There was indeed a lot of focus on Victor Shokhin is a possible corrupt figure inside Ukraine. Lot of people in Europe wanted. See Victor Show can go as the chief prosecutor in Ukraine, Biden has always claimed that his firing of victim Victor Shokhin was on the up and up. Soaking has always claimed that it was corrupt. That controversy has been out there for quite a while. What is unchallenged is that Joe Biden's family members ranging from his brother to his son, use his name in order to make money for themselves. And that does have an element of corruption to it. Now, The best that you can say about it is that Joe Biden turned a blind eye to it. Right. And this is sort of like show has argued Joe Biden has said, Well, I didn't know about it. Nobody ever did anything. Nobody ever did anything, man. Nobody. Come on, man. Come on. I never no, no.

Lebanon tribunal names 4 suspects in Hariri killing
"Is more than. Fifteen years since Lebanon's Prime Minister Rafic, Hariri was killed in a massive car bomb along with twenty one others. Later today an international caught near The Hague will hand down verdicts in the trial of four people accused of planning and carrying out the attack the four accused of of the Iran backed militia and political party. Hasballah. Hezbollah itself is not formally accused. Well, let's hear from the journalist and multiple twenty four regular contributor in Beirut Leyla Milana Allen Lali you're standing outside the very hotel in front of which Rafic Hariri was killed. What sense is in Beirut today that the justice will be done. There is very little sense. the families, all of the twenty one people other than because eighty who were killed as well as the nearly three hundred injured have waited as you say, over fifteen years justice taking a very long time this commission to come through with this, and the problems are a few of course many people here feel that the responsibility lies with the Syrian regime and through has through then has one. and. The five men on trial here all labeled as Hezbollah supporters because they found it very difficult to actually find evidence to show that they his bumbling members because, of course. Is So secretive I'm one of the biggest problems is that must have budgeted dean who was the main sort of ringleader debt these indictments who was accused of having set. The whole thing was known very well as the military imam to Hezbollah was killed in two thousand sixteen an attack on Damascus APP while his was helping Bashar Assad's regime with the wool there. So he was the one person who is very easy to link to Hezbollah and the only evidence they have all circumstantial evidence from these mobile phone networks. So as we expected, the indictment will come through the verdict will. Saying that before remaining men all guilty lane attempts about those who are accused of the murder of the prime minister. said a five men who stand accused have all been labeled Hezbollah supporters and that's because it's incredibly difficult to prove that they were in fact, Hezbollah members everyone in Lebanon believes that that. The majority of people believe that Kennedy was assassinated at because he was starting to pull away from supporting the Syrian regime who'd had troops stationed in Lebanon nearly thirty years all the way through the civil war and afterwards, and of course, we now know that Hezbollah very heavily H. Two zero. But this was all just sort of starting not link between Syria and Iran and Hezbollah but the main man was accused of being the ringleader. Organized the whole nation is most of that that the WHO was very well known as the head of the military wing of Hezbollah but he was killed in two, thousand sixteen and attacks Damascus Apple, which means he's no longer in the indictments and he was the only person. It was very easy to direct the link because there was evidence that he walls a top commander in. Bola. So I, the that means that it's very unlikely has itself will be named in the verdict today it will simply be. These men and then these men haven't been found the Lebanese government has been able to find. Her Bella is a big portion Lebanese government and the chief of Hezbollah nationalize long maintained that he absolutely does not see any of independence in this inquiry he says that it's funded by Israel and he says that there is no way that they will ever hand over these suspects old they will ever be found and historic has very good at hiding its top guys who've been involved in operations in. Lebanon in Syria and even Iran many think that these four worship over to Iran. So even if that comes through in the verdict is guilty as we expect, there's not really going to be any justice indeed has on Rolla said that Hezbollah isn't worried or isn't remotely concerned with today's verdicts but what will the repercussions be? The repercussions are unlikely to be much at this point, and that's for a few reasons I, Ne- as I said standing outside the. Hotel, which at the time in two, thousand and five win this thousand kilograms of TNT when pages devastating crater in the middle of the road and destroying all the buildings around loons lodge in the public consciousness here you there had been assassinations in the years off the list of this by the largest active. So many people because whoever was responsible really wasn't taking any chances and it was enormous copy. And other than the two thousand, six war with Israel, which was very different because it's a war in terms of an explosion going off in a very recognizable. Popular Ponte. out of nowhere that was the one that was remembered. Of course, until two weeks ago, two, thousand, seven, hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. In the port, just a few hundred meters down the road from this hotel. Injuring seven thousand people or more chilling up to two hundred, and still don't have a full body copy. What is still missing Susan now is far more would have. Done that assassination the other thing is that at the time, it was very shocking that people. Had Eighty was really associated with post for Lebanon. He was the symbol of course will Lebanon deeply loved by international leaders around the world as well as many Lebanese and so the idea that the Syrian regime would dad's kill him has would dare to kill him with. So shocking even though of course, assassinations were quite common but he was he was such. An important figure now firstly, since then of course, we've seen brushing Alaska wage a almost decade long bloody war against his own citizens in Syria we've seen very clearly now those strong legs between Hezbollah Syria and Iran Hezbollah work soldiers full bachelor says regime in the civil war in Syria. So nobody would be remote. You surprised now that that they all responsible. And the other issue of course is the fact that. Sad had eighty I think Kennedy some kind of stepped in his stead very much because he was the son and that's why he was given so much faith especially young age and has become such an important figure in politics here. But in the last year, we've seen a rudy seismic shift in Lebanese. Politics. People say that happens every fifteen years the lost round with two, thousand, five, thousand, and six before the civil war ended in one, thousand, nine, hundred before about. It started in nineteen, seventy five, and now of two, thousand, one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty weeks but newest protest movement Saudi the is very much seen as one of those political elites people out. So the younger generation at least don't have that same attachment to the family and time to seeing them as such an important force a good and for future movements, which is what that party is called Ford Movement in Lebanon So really this bird apartment, of course for the families. Of those killed and injured is not really going to have that much of an impact with so much else going on right now.

Dr. Lori Whatley - Staying Digitally Healthy During Quarantine
"And super excited to talk to you because not only have we been having struggles with screen time in our house since since quarantine started, but I know that every other person, all the other parent friends are also saying exactly the same thing. I feel very nonparent friends too I feel like a lot of people are watching so much more TV. And on the phone, so much more than we used to be. And I I'm hoping that we can sort of pick apart and find balancing tricks, and especially for the kids I mean I know my kids are having lots of meltdowns. IPADS and I hide the ipads in our normal life for like weeks on end, they do not watch them. They do not know where they are when I used to have them out in a certain place. It was always a fight 'cause. They could see them now I literally there away their off, they don't see them, and now we need to use them for school every single day, we take them out the first thing in the morning seven o'clock in the morning I start with them because I have daphne in each have four kits. and. Three of mine are getting home schools right now, my my one year old isn't and. And it's. It's it's challenging. It's challenging to explain to them when I'm forcing them to like learn certain things on the IPAD and then other times I'm like, no, no, no pot. We can't watch IPAD and so there's been tons and tons of meltdowns. And I don't know what you're. If you have any words of wisdom, well, I think that you said, exactly. The perfect word when you said balance and. I think with the kids. We must have valance and helping them learn balance. Early in life is very important because you know we all have it in our lives and we realized how important it is for us to balance things in our lives and a lot of times, the kids if they in age appropriately, if you're able to help them understand what you're doing and why you're going to do it and maybe even tell them ahead of time. So they they can mentally prepare because they're like us. You know springing something on them, take some of that. So given them an opportunity to. Know, what's going to happen and process that a little bit. But also helping them think that you know this is this is an opportunity for you all to connect in different ways We're all learning how to connect in different ways and our families right now and in our homes and helping them have in-person connection and learn how to do that is is to me one of the greatest gifts that you can give your children. Can you just tell our audience a little bit about your expertise in and because it was I'm sure. Sure. It feels different when you went into this field, but it does in the current environments I. Love For them just to understand the background a little bit. So I have a private practice in Atlanta as a therapist and I did my doctorinal studies around managing digital distractions and the reason that I did that was because more and more in my office I. Digital Distractions came up in sessions in one way or another and parents would bring their kids in May be the kids weren't doing well in school and they didn't understand why. and. I realized I'm going to need to know more about this topic as as time passes because this is becoming very prevalent in in my practice, people were bringing in more and more problems that have to do with digital device usage. So as I ask these teenagers questions about their habits, they would say, Oh, well, yeah, I am out on my phone all night or you know. Know on my ipad on I and parents had absolutely no idea that this was going on, and so they didn't understand their kids were you know experiencing sleep deprivation, which of course, affects your grades facture the way that you fill the next day at school Also I was you know having couples come in and they were going out together on a weekly date or whatnot. Maybe one of them was on the phone a lot and and it just kept coming up and so I realized I need to know more about this, and so as I began my research and learn such vital information about the way that technology effects us and certainly have made positive changes in my own life because of it now I must say technology is a wonderful thing and I, enjoy technology. So I'm not like a, you know Technology Bashar, but it certainly. Certainly make our lives easier unable to practice with people all over the world and how clients all over the world because of my technology and access to it. But I think that I have a respect for technology in a balancing, what some of the things that you they have learned and some of the changes that you've made in your personal life. Well, the first thing I do in the morning is a used to look at my phone or look at my laptop and. You, open that up and immediately there's something bad that you see that begins your day in a negative way. So I began putting that away for the first hour of the day Now, no digital distractions for me. The first hour day is just a peaceful, our maybe practice mindfulness or a cup of tea or go for a quiet walk or sit on outside on my. My Patio or whatnot and just start Madina Com way, and certainly as apparent, my kids are grown now. But when I was a parenting, it was very important that I began my day in a calm way because certainly, we all know as parents that since the kids start waking up, things might become a little bit chaotic right around Your House. We had a large family and. So we experienced that in and it was just best for me to be in that calm stable place as the day began, and then another another thing that I did as apparent was when I would pick up my kids in Carpool I made a point to not ever be on my phone it mainly, my kids said, hey, mom pitcher phone down don't tax when you're with us or whatever, and and we had to listen to them, and I realize now I tell them hey down when you're with me. That say the things you know the tables flipped a little bit here, but I realized that also I, at in the evenings I ended my day. In a quiet peaceful way with no screens

"bashar" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"In Syria this week, a sweeping new set of American sanctions takes hold. State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortega's says the goal is to cut off the revenue that president. Bashar Assad uses to wage war against his people. We begin a sustained campaign of sanctions against the Assad regime under the Caesar Act named after the brave photographer who six years ago brought the world documented proof of the Assad regime's brutality against fellow Syrians. The defector code-named Caesar smuggled out tens of thousands of images of men, tortured and starved to death in regime prisons. The sanctions come at a hard time for Mr. Assad and for the country's exhausted people. More than nine years of fighting Mr Assad has all but one the civil war. The few rebel holdouts are greatly weakened. But the regime now faces new challenges. That can't be resolved with force. This ought to be great time for the team of the shower last. He's been fighting a civil war for nine years, and he's really pushed his enemies back to the periphery of the country. Nicholas is economists Middle East correspondent. He's regained. The major cities is reduced the level of fighting to what last month was the lowest number of civilian casualties today, but just as he seems beginning the upper hand militarily. He's floundering badly economically. The country is in a really desperate state, and he doesn't have the money to rebuild really not even to feed his own population. The value of the currency has collapsed prices of increased. Three times since this thought of this year fifty since the war began I've spoken to farmers who are closing down because demand has collapsed for meet, people are struggling to afford for level and the food of the poor. Let alone the cost of a chicken. You've got an outbreak of demonstrations. In some of the lowest heartlands of the regime, people challenging the same slogans, the opposition used to chunk when they began the civil war in two thousand and eleven. So what's gone wrong here? Why haven't the military gains been matched with with some competency? There tends to blame the outside world it says at. America fell to bring down the. The regime militarily, and is now trying to do the same economically it points to a new American Law of the Caesar Act that comes into effect this week, which bans trade financial transactions with the key sectors that prop up the Syrian regime including reconstruction. I think it's wrong to attribute all the problems that Syria has to American sanctions. This is a country which don't forget has been broken by nine years of wards smashed it still divided and in effect Mr Spectrum is half of his twenty years in power. Fighting a civil war devastated much reserve it. Infrastructure is destroyed his manufacturing hub in Aleppo. It's left almost half the population. Displaced or chase them abroad, so here's really the author of his own economic woes, and the regime doesn't have the resources to rebuild its main patrons. Russia and Iran are more interested in taking money getting what they can out of Syria than putting money in on top of that those those Lebanon, which was serious economic window to the outside world. It was the place where this is used can. Is the banking center and now Levin itself is in economic chaos. So what has Mr done as as all of these sources of of support have have fallen away as he's tried to blame others. He sacked his prime minister. He's introduced a series of. Economic measures to try and hold them to what revenues he still has in the country. He slashed impulse. Buy Fifty percents. He's stopped his banks from issuing loans. ATM's of pretty much down across regime areas, and indeed he's sort of been fleecing the most powerful businessmen in Syria including his cousin Ramaema's Loof, but always seemed to be kind of piecemeal measures. Measures they seem desperate. It has said that there's not really much vision coming from the top. Charlotte said he's been surprisingly absent from the political scene. He hoped that some Gulf states might bail him out, but that seems to be floundering as well because the Caesar Act is going to deter many who might have engaged with the regime from banking on Mr. Perhaps his two best hopes. Ironically the Arizona outside regime-controlled, because they will not be subject to the Caesar Act so the come the two hours in the north. And it might be the detritus to increase trade within the uses these areas which previously. Loggerheads with him as as middlemen to access the outside well, and then of course there's Hezbollah its share on group which is kept Lebanon's most powerful force, and has been heavily involved in the fighting in Syria in Lebanon control the only airport, and they control many of the crossings into Syria, so it might be that you're going to see increased reliance on Hezbollah to bring in impulse from the outside world, but all this is going to lead to an increase in reliance. Reliance on smuggling rings, going to lead to an increase in racketeering. This isn't really the basis for trying to manage a country's economy, and so can he find his way out of this? Is there a chance that all this could bring mister down at last trust has been remarkably successful, defying predictions his demise, but this time it has to be said there is a difference the economic crisis in series on settling the regime in a way that the war rarely did. Even at the worst moments of the fighting Mr Asset managed to retain the loyalty of half the population particularly relied on minorities whether they were Christians or his own Alawite base. They're a splinter sect the that comes from mainstream Islam, and then you have the truth minority as well. All seemed to be wavering. They wonder what's happened to the peace dividend. They wonder whether Mr Assad is going to be able to feed them looks like the whole patronage network is crumbling before their eyes, and so all beginning to wonder whether he is not the solution to their problems, but the problem itself. Nicholas thank you very much for joining Jason..
