You need to do proper analysis, statistical regression, to work that out. What’s worse, Dawkins knows that. Nelson Jones thinks Dawkins makes a weak case: The reason for this isn’t an international conspiracy and it’s ridiculous to view it as some sort of failure on the part of Islam.

As a few students exclaimed when our small bus pulled in front of the main house, the photos on their website are far from doing justice to the beauty and warmth of the place! We are lucky! What an incredible experience we’ve had! I need a few days to gather my thoughts and rest my body, but I promise to be back with pictures and words about it all. I sense you will love it.

Bonne fête à toutes les mamans ! Mother’s Day, la fête des mères, is only celebrated on May 26th in France, but one time is never enough to show the appreciation and love I have for my mother, and for all of the things she taught me. Including bringing me into the kitchen to cook with her.

Le pique-nique You may recall that last summer, I was very lucky to collaborate with the very sweet Karen Mordechai from Sunday Suppers to teach a food styling and photography workshop and lead one of her successful suppers in her fabulous loft in Brooklyn. Her studio space is gorgeous! I am very pleased to announce that I will be teaching a two-day food styling and photography workshop at Sunday Suppers again the weekend of September 7th and 8th, 2013.

Mise en place for the salade composée Yesterday, as I walked into the kitchen with a hungry belly after a morning spent in the garden to plant, I looked for a quick solution for lunch. I had a bowl of blanched fava beans kept for another cooking project, and local asparagus bought the afternoon before. Quinoa, I knew, would be fast to prepare.

Terrorist Plot Foiled After Concert Security Taps Woman’s Purse
ANAHEIM, CA—Claiming that thousands of innocent lives had been saved, authorities announced today that a plot to bomb the Honda Center was successfully foiled Thursday evening after a concert security worker lightly tapped a purse with his hands, revealing several hidden explosives. “I grazed the outside of her bag with my fingers for a split second, and I could immediately feel the IEDs in there,” said Anthony Corvine, the heroic 31-year-old security staffer who identified the threat while manning the arena’s bag-check line. “We’re specially trained for this sort of thing, so a brief touch of any purse or backpack and we’ll know exactly what’s in there. People say I’m a hero, but I was just following our standard, highly effective purse-tapping protocol.” Sources confirmed this is the second such terrorist plot recently foiled at a major stadium, after security at New York City’s Barclays Center quickly patted the front pockets of an attempted suicide bomber last month.

Job Growth Remains Sluggish, Or Rather, Akin To A Slug
These are all words sources would use in this instance, although perhaps not sluggy, as that’s not really a word people use. Of course, sources could always just say that domestic job growth is “slow-moving,” as that would also be accurate, but reports indicate that that’s a little prosaic, and, especially where journalism is concerned, it’s helpful to use more colorful language when describing these dry economic topics. You know, try to breathe a little life into it. Although, hold on, it just occurred to sources that another good way of describing the state of the job market would be to use boats. So if job growth were up, you’d compare it to a really fast speedboat.
