Starbucks personale chikanerer Trump supporter

In what the company is calling a “coaching opportunity for the future,” a woman says she was openly harassed by employees at a Starbucks in North Carolina on Wednesday.

The reason she was targeted: she was wearing a Donald Trump shirt. The heckling from the baristas, who mockingly yelled “Build a wall,” was so overt, she said, she finally just “walked out because everyone was staring.”

Men ikke længere – Ugeskrift for Læger skriver statusartikel: Kaffe kan beskytte mod sygdom.

KONKLUSION

Et moderat indtag på 3-4 kopper kaffe om dagen har en overbevisende beskyttende effekt på udvikling af type 2-diabetes og Parkinsons sygdom. Nyere studier tyder på, at kaffe også kan mindske risikoen for blodprop og blødning i hjernen. Andre studier peger i retningen af, at et moderat kaffeindtag beskytter mod Alzheimers sygdom, selvmord og depression, sænker den samlede kræftrisiko og specielt beskytter mod kræft i mundhule, svælg, lever, tyk- og endetarm samt livmoder. Der er nogle få grupper, f.eks. personer med en angstlidelse, gravide og personer med lavt kalciumindtag, der skal være lidt varsomme med kaffeindtaget.

Store problemer i EU-kommissionen – men de kan løses!

Following embarrassing revelations that the European Commission had purchased 21 deluxe espresso machines costing thousands of euros each – only to find that commissioners and their distinguished guests, not to mention the staff, were drinking a less-than-perfect brew – a settlement has been reached with the maker.

cimbaliThe company, La Cimbali of Italy, is organizing training sessions for a representative from each commissioner’s office to enhance their “coffee knowledge, from beans to the cup,” La Cimbali wrote in an “action plan” obtained by the International Herald Tribune. Officials would benefit from “coffee tasting theory and sensorial techniques,” “recipes and hints,” as well as “ordinary machine maintenance procedures.”

And just in case they forget, or are too busy to perform the regular cleaning ritual, the company is programming each of the €5,000, or $6,400, machines to periodically run an automatic cleaning cycle, “thus removing the need for someone to actively intervene,” Kidd said.

What happens when a fly falls into a coffee cup?

Filed under: Europa, Frankrig, Humor, Israel, Italien, Kina, Palæstina - Libanon, Tyskland — Tags: , — Hodja @ 10:49

Tjener – der er en flue i min kaffe!

The Italian – throws the cup, breaks it, and walks away in a fit of rage.
 
 The German – carefully washes the cup, sterilizes it and makes a new cup of coffee.
 
 The Frenchman – takes out the fly, and drinks the coffee.
 
 The Chinese – eats the fly and throws away the coffee.
 
 The Russian – Drinks the coffee with the fly, since it was extra with no charge.
 
 The Israeli – sells the coffee to the Frenchman, the fly to the Chinese,
 drinks tea and uses the extra money to invent a device that prevents flies from falling into coffee.
 
The Palestinian – blames the Israeli for the fly falling in his coffee, protests the act of aggression to the UN, takes a loan from the European Union to buy a new cup of coffee, uses the mo ney to purchase explosives and then blows up the coffee house where the Italian, the Frenchman, the Chinese, the German and the Russian are all trying to explain to the Israeli that he should give away his cup of tea to the Palestinian.
