why do they put pimentos in olives

A pimento is probably the most recognizable item that is stuffed in a green olive, but itБs not really known why or when this practice started in the first place. ItБs believed that the first olives stuffed with pimentos happened sometime in the 1700s in France, and the pimento might have been used to cut the bitterness of the olive. Pimentos are a very mild variety of chili peppers and are also known as a cherry peppers. But pimentos arenБt the only things stuffed in green olives. You can find green olives stuffed with onions, garlic, blue cheese, anchovies, almonds, or a variety of different peppers. While the question of why pimentos were first put in olives is fuzzy, how they get inserted into green olives is thankfully more clear. Olives straight from the tree are inedible. To make

why do toenails fall off when running

Has this happened to you? More than once? Runners and ballet dancers have something in common. toes that are far from pretty. We asked podiatrist Dr. Jackie Sutera on the behalf of for advice on a common running problem missing toenails. Hey, it s gross but it happens. Here s what Dr. Sutera had to say: After a long run, sweat has built up and your feet are slipping around in the shoe a little more than if they were dry. The constant sliding back and forth of the toes which jam into the front of the shoe causes micro trauma. This micro trauma can loosen the nail plate which will then cause it to eventually fall off. The good news is that most of the time the nail will grow back without any sign of the injury. Some tips for prevention: make sure your shoes fit. Shoes that are too tight

why is passover celebrated for 8 days

5 Follow-ups Shalom, Since the calculated calendar, as you mentioned, is so accurate, what is the necessity of observing 2 days of Pesach? Isn t it reduntant to have two seders now that the reason for the additional seder is no longer valid? While the algorithm to calculate the calendar certainly exists, the Rabbis were concerned that an extended period of violent social upheaval (of which there have been plenty in our history) might make accurate calculations difficult, causing general confusion. For this reason, even in times of peace, we make it a practice to stick to the doubt-driven calendar. Besides this, one can only speculate that there might have been other, far more wide-reaching considerations behind this decree. Comment by ATR April 2, 2006 @ So, by the same token we should

 why do tsunamis occur in the pacific ocean

why do tsunamis occur in the pacific ocean

Earthquakes that generate tsunamis most often happen where Earth's tectonic plates converge, and the heavier plate dips beneath the lighter one. Part of the seafloor snaps upward as the tension is released. The entire column of seawater is pushed toward the surface, creating an enormous bulge. As the water flattens out, giant ripples race outward. Landslides, Volcanic Eruptions, Meteorites Submarine landslides, which often occur during a large earthquake, can create a tsunami. During a submarine landslide, the equilibrium sea level is altered by sediment moving along the sea floor. Gravitational forces then propagate the tsunami given the initial perturbation of the sea level. Similarly, a violent marine volcanic eruption can create an impulsive force that displaces the water column and

 why do some leaves change color in the fall

why do some leaves change color in the fall

The vivid yellow and orange colors of fall leaves have actually been there throughout the spring and summer, but we havenБt been able to see them. The deep green color of chlorophyll, which helps plants absorb life-giving sunlight, hides the other colors. In the fall, trees break down the green pigments and nutrients stored in the leaves. The nutrients are shuttled into the roots for reuse in the spring As leaves lose their chlorophyll, other pigments become visible to the human eye, according to Bryan A. Hanson, professor of chemistry and biochemistry at DePauw University who studies plant pigments. Some tree leaves turn mostly brown, indicating that all pigments are gone. Burgundy and red colors are a different story. Dana A. Dudle is a DePauw professor of biology who researches red

В последние несколько недель Гарри постепенно осваивался и приходил в себя. Это давалось ему с большим трудом. После того, как его нашли Эггзи и Мерлин, воспоминания с каждым днем возвращались в его изрядно поврежденную память. И все благодаря Эггзи Анвину. В их первую встречу в штабе Statesman мальчик так ему обрадовался, cловно после долгих лет мучительной разлуки, чем сильно озадачил Гарри. Сначала он не понимал, чему тот так радовался, словно щеночек корги, но потом до него дошло, что причиной был именно он. Эггзи старался по возможности как можно чаще находиться рядом со своим наставником, помогал ему всем чем мог и всякий раз искренне беспокоился за него. ...
