Reinterpretations

An alternative take on classic treats...and meats.


Newman's Own version of the Oreo cookie, Newman-O's. The classic treat, that features more cocoa flavor than sweetness (with no high-fructose corn syrup), it's (mostly) organic, and all profits go to charity...it's clearly superior to the original incarnation.


Fig Bites made with Turkish figs. A healthier, more satisfying version of the Fig Newton brought to you by the always welcoming, Trader Joe's


Here's a rarity...a veggie burger that's moist AND dense. The Beast Burger, brought to you by Beyond Meat, is made from pea protein. A welcome departure from the black bean and soy options that currently dominate the market.


Finally, a long-time favorite of mine by WestSoy. Seitan is high in protein, low in fat, and has great density & texture. It easily replaces any meat...try using seitan in a Philly CheeseSteak or Shepherd's Pie.

Remnants Of A Destroyed Star


Crab Nebula (Hubble Space Telescope/NASA)

"This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the beating heart of one of the most visually appealing, and most studied, supernova remnants known - the Crab Nebula. At the centre of this nebula the spinning core of a deceased star breathes life into the gas that surrounds it."



Veil Nebula (Hubble Space Telescope/NASA)

The Veil Nebula is 110 light-years wide, a cloud of heated and ionized gas & dust approximately, 2,100 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus.

Meanwhile...On It's Way To Jupiter


Measurements by the Juno Spacecraft (NASA).

'Jupiter, the largest planet in the Solar System, is best known for its colourful storms. Now astronomers have focused on another beautiful feature of the planet, using the ultraviolet capabilities of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The extraordinary vivid glows shown in the new observations are known as auroras. They are created when high energy particles enter a planet’s atmosphere near its magnetic poles and collide with atoms of gas.'
