Truth in Love The Irrelevant Majority
The Irrelevant Majority
Author: Matt Ward
A constant refrain when discussing issues
of radical Islam is that the overwhelming majority of Muslims are not
radicalized. I agree completely. The vast majority of Muslim men and
women are people who just want to live their lives, bring up their
families and make the most out of the short time they have available to
Almost all Western intelligence agencies are unanimous in their
estimates that anywhere between 15-25 percent of Muslims worldwide are
radicalized. That means there are between 180-300 million radicalized
Muslim men and women in the world today. It is quite right to point out
that this therefore means there are 75 percent of the Muslim Uma who are

Be like them skip the bacon
This recipe for drunken beans was directly inspired by a recipe in Cookâ€™s Illustrated, which somehow I had never read before last month. Iâ€™m now completely hooked on their combination of kitchen science and insanely thorough recipe testing. Andrew Janjigian took the concept of Mexican drunken beans, frijoles borrachos, and figured out the science behind making them taste fantastic without being boozy. The key lies in when you add the alcohol, and how you cook it off. Itâ€™s fascinating, check out the original piece in the January/February issue (subscription required).
I followed his instructions for an overnight soak, then cooking the beans in the oven to prevent them from breaking. Adding the alcohol in two stages provided excellent flavor with no booziness.
I needed to make them low-sodium, so I omitted the 3 tablespoons(!) of salt in the soaking wter. And gluten-free, so I needed gluten-free beer. Luckily, I happened upon the Mission Brewing booth at the Gluten-Free and... (more)
