Bagels And Baseball: Citi Field Unveils New Menu Items For Second-Half Run

The bountiful harvest at Citi Field has another option.

On Tuesday, the Mets introduced the new, renovated Coca-Cola Corner, which will feature several New York restaurants throughout the rest of the season. Each vendor to come to the Coca-Cola Corner will do so in the form of a food truck. The Coca-Cola Corner has also added picnic tables and a few high-top tables that offer views of the field.

First up is Utopia Bagels of Whitestone, Queens. The local neighborhood bagel shop concocted three bagel sandwiches — The Cowboy, The Citi Fielder and the Classic Bacon, Egg & Cheese — which are now available in the Coca-Cola Corner above the right field seats.

The Cowboy is the unquestioned standout of the group. Served on a plain bagel, the sandwich consists of a chicken cutlet, American cheese, bacon and barbecue sauce. With the most robust flavor profile of the group, The Cowboy is both tasty and filling enough to be a solid option at both day and night games.

The Citi Fielder is a lighter option more reminiscent of a classic deli sandwich. With turkey, avocado, muenster cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo, the Citi Fielder is a more traditional and less messy option than its bolder cowboy cousin. The flavor was a bit lacking on this one, but can be easily spruced up with hot sauce or other additions from concession stands along the concourse.

Lastly, the Bacon, Egg & Cheese is exactly what you’d expect. A staple of bodegas and bagel shops, Utopia’s version of the BEC is nothing to write home about, but is certainly a comforting alternative to the standard ballpark fare of hot dogs, chicken fingers and hamburgers.

The Cowboy and Citi Fielder will run you $13, and would benefit from coming on an everything, sesame, or any kind of bagel that is not plain. The Bacon, Egg & Cheese is $11. The Mets have not announced what the next food truck will be.




Pound rises and falls as UK inflation hits 40-year high

Pound Rises And Falls As Uk Inflation Hits 40-Year High

The knee-jerk reaction in recent months has been to equate higher inflation with more aggressive central banks. But amid recent subtle moves by the Fed, RBA and BOE, it is clear that we are now in the second half of the tightening cycle where the previous rules cease to apply.

As the tightening cycle reaches a stage where it is slowing given deteriorating economic conditions, higher inflation may work as a double-edged sword in a sense.

There is a balance that needs to be struck between central banks continuing to throw everything in to put out the fire and central banks needing to back down as the economy is on the verge of a headlong crash. Policymakers want to achieve a “soft landing” and that won’t be helped by further aggressive rate hikes as the economy heads into a recession.

In the case of the UK, they are arguably one of the economies hardest hit by all of this against a backdrop of a worsening cost of living crisis and high energy prices – not helped by the fallout from the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.

While the print of more than 10% is likely to warrant another rate hike by the BOE, I don’t think it’s as much of a game-changer relative to the weight of such a number on consumer sentiment.

In other words, markets are comfortable with this as it matches rate pricing for the BOE, but the negative impact on the data economy has more potential to threaten to derail the central bank. of its tightening trajectory. As previously mentioned:

“While this justifies more rate hikes by the BOE, I don’t see much benefit in this given that the markets are well prepared for what the BOE has to offer in the coming months. Instead From this, if the staggering weight of inflation crushes consumer activity, I can see that print being tailored to be a negative for the pound instead.”

For GBP/USD, key support continues to hold closer to 1.2000 for now while upside momentum is very limited by trendline resistance at 1.2192 currently.

On Wednesday, The Government Will Meet With Industry Stakeholders On A Common Charger For All Electronic Devices

The meeting will assess the possibility of ending the use of multiple chargers in India.

New Delhi:

The government will hold a meeting with industry players on Wednesday to explore the possibility of adopting a common charger for cellphones and other portable electronic devices.

The meeting, which will be chaired by Consumer Secretary Rohit Kumar Singh, is scheduled after lunch and will bring together manufacturers of portable electronic devices, including laptops and mobile phones.

Industry associations, industry bodies CII and FICCI and representatives from IIT Delhi and IIT BHU will be part of the meeting.

“The meeting will be more of an exploratory nature. We will try to learn from stakeholders how a common charger can be adopted in India. We will also try to understand their concerns,” the secretary told PTI.

Europe is already working to adopt this standard, he noted.

The meeting with industry organizations will assess the possibility of ending the use of multiple chargers in India and reducing the burden on consumers besides preventing e-waste.

Currently, consumers are forced to buy a separate charger every time they buy a new device due to the incompatibility of the ports of the existing charger.

Recently, the European Union announced the adoption of a common USB-C port charging standard for small electronic devices by 2024. A similar demand also exists in the United States.

Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski and one of former President Donald Trump’s top Republican challengers will qualify for the general election, according to NBC’s plans.

Murkowski and former Alaska Department of Administration commissioner Kelly Tshibaka will move forward, along with Democrat Patricia Chesbro, NBC projects. It was too early to call the fourth candidate for this competition.

Alaska has a top-four primary threshold under the state’s ranked voting system, which passed through a ballot measure in 2020 — just in time for Murkowski, who won’t wasn’t guaranteed to emerge from Tuesday’s primary race as an undisputed favorite.

Trump and the Alaska Republican Party endorsed Tshibaka over incumbent Murkowski for the Senate seat. Trump had sharply criticized Murkowski while president, saying in 2018 that she would “never recover” after voting against his second Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump, the de facto leader of the Republican Party, has vowed to campaign against Murkowski after he joined six other Republican senators in voting to condemn Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

“I don’t know where the others will be next year, but I know where I will be – in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad senator,” Trump said at the time.

Trump hails Harriet Hageman’s win over Liz Cheney

Trump Hails Harriet Hageman'S Win Over Liz Cheney

Former President Donald Trump celebrated Harriet Hageman’s victory over Representative Liz Cheney in Wyoming’s Republican congressional primary.

Cheney is nowhere near beating Hageman, with the race being called within 30 minutes of the vote count, according to forecasts. As of this writing, Hageman holds a massive lead of more than 30 points with just 49% of the votes counted.

Needless to say, President Trump, who initially enthusiastically endorsed Hageman, applauded Cheney’s loss on his social media site, hoping it marked the beginning of the end for the “Political Hacks and Thugs Screening Committee.” ”, that is to say the committee of January 6th.

“Congratulations to Harriet Hageman on her big and very decisive win in Wyoming,” he said. “This is a wonderful outcome for America, and a complete rebuke from the screening committee of political hacks and thugs.” He continued:

Liz Cheney should be ashamed of herself, the way she acted, and her malicious and judgmental words and actions towards others. Now she can finally disappear into the depths of political oblivion where I am sure she will be much happier than she is right now. Thank you WYOMING!

During her concession speech, Liz Cheney compared herself to former President Abraham Lincoln and General Ulysses S. Grant. Cheney said:

Our party’s great and original champion, Abraham Lincoln, was defeated in Senate and House elections before winning the most important election of all. Lincoln ultimately prevailed. He saved our Union. And it defined our obligations as Americans for all of history.

“It has been said that the long arc of history bends towards justice and freedom. True, but only if we bend it,” Cheney later added. “Today our highest duty is to bend the arc of history to preserve our nation and its blessings to ensure that freedom will not perish to protect the very foundations of this constitutional republic.”

Abby the Dog, Missing for 2 Months, Found Alive in Missouri Cave – NBC Chicago

Abby The Dog, Missing For 2 Months, Found Alive In Missouri Cave – Nbc Chicago

Jeff Bohnert had all but given up on seeing his poodle-dog mix again after he disappeared in early June. Two months later, he received a text from a neighbor: People exploring a nearby cave found a dog. Could it be Abby?

Bohnert doubted it, but still curious, he traveled to the cave site near his rural Missouri home. It was then that he saw the photo taken by one of the rescuers.

“I said, ‘that’s my dog,’” Bohnert recalled Monday.

What makes Abby’s story even more amazing is the fact that she’s only a few weeks away from turning 14. Fahrenheit cave (14 degrees Celsius).

Abby and Bohnert’s other dog, Summer, does everything together, including bad behavior.

On June 9, the couple ran away from home, Bohnert recalled. It had happened before, and in the rural area near Perryville in eastern Missouri, it was usually not a big deal. The dogs trotted around the fields, maybe chased something, then went home.

When Bohnert woke up the next morning, Summer was home but Abby was not.

“They never separate,” he said. “I figured something bad happened. I mean, she’s old. She might just be overwhelmed with the heat.

Bohnert posted information about her missing dog on Facebook, contacted neighbors and contacted the police, but no one had seen Abby.

On August 6, Gerry Keene and five other adults, along with five children, had just entered Berome Moore Cave, planning a day of exploration. One of the children ran ahead of the group and yelled at his father, “There’s a dog here.

“Their dad was like, no, there isn’t,” Keene said.

Yes there was.

“She was just lying there, curled up in a ball,” Keene recalled. “She lifted her head and looked at us but she didn’t respond to verbal commands. She looked like she was about to be done.”

Keene enlisted the help of another caver who happened to be there, Rick Haley. They knew Abby couldn’t make the estimated 500 foot walk to the entrance, especially since it was through narrow passages and a steep incline.

Haley was trained in cave rescues and he got a duffel bag and a blanket from his truck. They put the blanket inside the bag, then the dog, who immediately took the warm blanket after weeks in the cold mud.

Still, getting Abby out was tricky considering how fragile she was.

“It was critical that we didn’t handle her roughly,” Haley said. In rocky areas through small passages, “We carried her a short distance, set her down, then moved past her, reached back, lifted her and placed her in front of us.” He described it as “kind of a leapfrog.

Shortly after initially finding Abby, Keene briefly visited a few nearby houses to see if anyone was missing a dog. A neighbor contacted Bohnert, who lives close enough to the cave site to be able to see it from his home.

He went there assuming it couldn’t be Abby – how could a 13-year-old dog survive such an ordeal?

To her surprise, she did, and about an hour and a half into the rescue, she was out. One of the lifeguards gave Abby a bite of beef.

“She almost ate her finger,” Keene said. Almost immediately, she began to straighten up.

Bohnert thinks Abby ended up in the cave after falling into a sinkhole or hidden entrance. Haley said there were paw prints everywhere, indicating that she first tried to get out.

After that, Haley and Bohnert believe she squatted, able to live on mostly her own body fat.

“I think she was just in preservation mode,” Bohnert said.

Abby normally weighs around 50 pounds (23 kilograms), Bohnert said, but he guessed she had lost half her weight in the cave. Since her rescue, she has gained weight and started to regain the voice she probably lost while barking for help.

She also wags her tail, showing that she is putting the trauma behind her.

“It’s amazing how she’s already bouncing back,” Bohnert said. “She’s acting like herself again.”
