Il faut d'abord, avec une aiguille, percer un petit trou dans la partie renflée de l'oeuf pour permettre à l'air de s'échapper pendant la cuisson. Pas d'eau bouillante, car le blanc d'oeuf cuit à 64 0C ; au-delà, il devient caoutchouteux. Le problème est que le jaune cuit à 68 °C. Au-dessus de cette température, il devient sableux. Solution : cuire l'oeuf à 69 °C. "Mais cette température est presque impossible à maintenir dans une cuisine domestique", dit Christina Blais. Le compromis, à la maison, consiste à placer les oeufs dans une eau froide salée et à porter doucement à une première ébullition, couvrir et laisser reposer pendant une dizaine de minutes. On prendra soin, pendant la cuisson, de faire rouler l'oeuf dans la casserole pour obtenir un jaune bien centré. Le résultat est un oeuf assaisonné (par le sel), au blanc moelleux, bien équilibré autour du jaune pour obtenir de belles tranches, à la double texture idéale.
First, you must use a pin and pierce the shell at the round (not pointy) end of the egg, to allow air to escape during the cooking process. Do not let the water boil, since the white cooks at 64 degrees Celsius and turns rubbery at a higher temperature. The problem is that the yolk cooks at 68 degrees Celsius and turns sandy at a higher temperature. The solution is to cook the egg at 69 degrees. According to Christina Blais, «such temperature is impossible to maintain in a normal kitchen». The compromise solution, if you cook at home, is to put the egg in salted cold water which you will slowly bring to a boil. As soon as the water starts to boil, turn off the heat, cover the pot and let the egg continue to cook in that water for ten minutes. Blais recommands that you roll the egg around while it cooks so that the yolk is centered, but I find that the boiling water is already doing that rolling job for you, not to mention that the yolk centering doesn't really matter unless you intend to slice the egg for sandwiches, because really who gives a sh*t if the yolk is slightly off center? Anyhoo, back to the translation. The result will be a nicely seasoned egg (by the salt), with creamy white, equally distributed around the yolk to yield beautiful slices, and with perfect texture for both the white and the yolk.

«Bush went to Vietnam and boasted about how we would have won if we had not quit. This was, he said, the lesson for Iraq of the Vietnam War. He managed to be wrong about two wars at once and to anger both his hosts (how churlish!) and the Iraqi public. The American Right never admitted that they lost in Vietnam, thus the Rambo movies and, Melani McCallister argues, the US admiration for Entebbe. Iraq was their chance, they thought, to get it right. Bush had also said insulting things to the Philippines about how wonderful it was that we had colonized them (and killed 400,000).
Colonialism is over with. When will they get that through their heads?

He boasted we could have won Vietnam IN VIETNAM??!!
Do they think he's been drinking again?»
And speaking of voodoo,
Westmount, QC - Canada - All my phaenelopsis are in bloom or producing multiple bud spikes. There are so many of them that I'm running out of room on the window sills. But I'm not complaining. At least I don't have a voodoo curse on my ass.
You think it's because Bush is an idiot and his Administration is populated by incompetent and ignorant yahoos? Noooo! I mean, yes, the present President of the United States of America has no interest in the world outside of his small circle and his staff are hired for their loyalty to the Party and not for their competence, but still, the main reason is because it's about brown people, so nobody really gives a sh*t.
When the Prime Minister of Vietnam came to Canada last summer, Jean Charest greeted him in Quebec City. In his speech, Charest announced that Quebec City will sign an agreement to become the twin city of Huê, Vietnam's ancient imperial capital. Charest kept calling it the City of Hew (the correct pronunciation is: Huey). He didn't bother to check the correct pronunciation of Quebec City's twin sister, nor did his staff bother to tell him. After all, the only people who would care are ...well, brown people, and we all know how their opinions matter, right?
And by the way, the Vietnamese Prime Minister did not mispronounce the name Quebec. That would be a major, major faux pas in protocol affairs and in simple courtesy, even for brown people.

Associated Press - World leaders gathering in Hanoi this weekend for the annual Pacific Rim summit will be invited to don traditional Vietnamese "ao dai" silk tunics and black velvet turbans for their group photo, staff of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum said Tuesday.
Making the custom-tailored ankle-length ao dai, pronounced "ow zai," requires more than 20 measurements — details some of the less-than-svelte among the leaders might not be so keen to disclose. But that's the price the leaders pay for their photo ritual, a highlight of the annual summit of 21 APEC leaders.
The tradition of posing in clothing symbolic of the host country began with the first APEC summit in Seattle in 1993, when the leaders wore leather bomber jackets. Indonesian batik, Filipino barong made of pineapple fiber, and gold-embroidered Chinese silk tunics are among the other traditional shirts the leaders have worn, sometimes to their apparent chagrin.
The centuries-old ao dai was banned briefly after Vietnam's communist revolution but is now worn by school girls — preserving a touch of traditional elegance in a fast-modernizing society. Vietnamese otherwise rarely wear ao dai except as uniforms or for formal occasions or special holidays.
The traditional women's costume includes a long tunic with slits up the sides revealing just an inch or so of flesh at the waist above long white slacks. The men's version adds a headband-like turban, usually in black or brown.
From All Hat No Cattle [http://allhatnocattle.net/]: A penguin called Elvis wears a new pair of blue shoes at the Antarctic Center's Penguin Encounter display in Christchurch, November 7, 2006. Elvis and 16 other penguins who arrived at the International Antarctic Centre in September have been given specially designed shoes after several penguins developed sore feet in their new home, according to Antarctic Centre director Richard Benton.
