The Daily Word in affirmative action, transgender rights and possible fraud

By Mark Lopez [ Mon Jun 24 2013 2:39 PM ]
The Daily Word

First the Food Network and now Smithfield! You're making some enemies, Paula!

Affirmative action takes the backseat ...

Berlusconi gets seven years, but will it stick? No pun intended.

Colorado court rules in favor of a transgendered girl who was denied access to the girls' bathroom.

Phillip Garcia found guilty of kidnapping.

Have some mental health providers been mishandling funds? Tsk Tsk Tsk ...

When did they start letting people in Aransas Pass have monkeys? Should I move back to Texas?

What the hell happened last year?

By Marisa Demarco [ Tue Jan 3 2012 3:45 PM ]

2011 zipped by in a blur of catastrophic weather, war, civil unrest and ideological battles. This week’s news section gives you some of the highlights.

What will this year bring?

This much we know: The 2012 elections will consume most national media as November nears. There will be talking head saturation—and reader/viewer fatigue—as America’s politicians try to hang onto their seats. It’s like the Super Bowl/World Cup/World Series/NBA Finals/UFC Ultimate Ultimate Ultimate Knuckle Basher all rolled into one.

Except the election actually matters. Zing!

Or maybe it doesn’t. Zing! Zing!

Either way, this thing in Iowa tonight is just the beginning.

Year in Review: Food

Chewing on 2011

The rising cost of eating, medium-rare pork, nutrition guidelines and foodborne illness top the list of hot stories

By Ari LeVaux

Every December, the Hunter PR firm announces the results of a nationwide survey for the top 10 food news stories of the year. The list says as much about the media that writes the headlines as it does about the people who remember them.

Music to Your Ears

Five Favorites of 2011

By Jessica Cassyle Carr

Honestly, I spent most of 2011 obsessing over mod music and glam rock from the ’60s and ’70s, and so I don’t feel quite equipped to compose an authoritative or complete list of the year’s best new sounds. (Besides, the Internet is populated by young bloggers on the hipster tip who are doing just that for me—not that I was into Real Estate, Youth Lagoon or Lana Del Mar in the slightest.) I did, however, spend hours obsessing over certain songs. Below are the five I repeated to an embarrassing degree.

Mina's Dish

The Best Dishes of 2011

By Mina Yamashita

No contest—my choice for No. 1 meal in 2011 is Masa’s omakase in New York City, and Prune is certainly in the top 10 (see Have Fork, Will Travel). But I’ve eaten some amazing food here at home this year. The dishes that follow, available on regular menus or as specials, stand out as top notch. I have a hard time distinguishing between them for quality and sheer enjoyment, so in no particular order:

The dead and dying shows of 2011

By Devin D. O’Leary

The 2011-2012 season has hit its midway point. Shows are taking a break for the holidays and will be back with new episodes in late January or early February. Some of them anyway. A few have already gone off to that great television channel in the sky. While the fall 2011 season wasn’t exceptionally bloody, there were a handful of high-profile network casualties.

By Amy Dalness [ Thu Mar 31 2011 3:01 PM ]

It's the Weekly Alibi's 18th annual Best of Burque issue. Faster than a speeding red-light runner. More powerful than Don Schrader's home-brewed goat head yerba maté. You, the readers, picked the best of the best in the Duke City. We, Albuquerque's faithful alternative weekly, compiled those green chile slathered nuggets of local goodness into what is sure to be the best Best of Burque issue of 2011.

Psychic Predictions, Past and Future

The Alibi's resident skeptic cashes in a few bets

By Benjamin Radford

On Dec. 14, 2009, I wrote a list of 15 predictions for 2010, published in the Alibi. Having investigated mysterious and unexplained phenomena for more than a decade, I actually have a documented history of accuracy. In fact, my success rate for 2008 was about 90 percent. As 2010 came to a close, I thought it was time to dust off my forecasts to see how I fared.

The Year in Food

Farm laws and spilled secrets

By Ari LeVaux

Some will argue that 2010 was the year homemade sausage finally came of age, or the year the school garden movement exploded. Others will remember 2010 as the year KFC's Double Down sandwich made its glorious debut. With so many food preferences and priorities, you can hardly make an end-of-year food list to please everyone, so let’s start with what the people think. Some of them, anyway.
