I definitely consider myself more than an average fan of hummus. Dips in general are typically my go-to nosh option, whether I’m entertaining guests or snacking solo. But hummus in particular has always held a very special place in my heart. Discovering unique incarnations of it and finding new twists on recipes to whip up at home are the stuff dreams are made of, in my book. Though my commitment to hummus may not extend as far as teeth-cleaning or hairstyling like Adam Sandler’s character in ”Don’t Mess With The Zohan,” my love of the creamy Middle Eastern spread definitely runs deep. The silky texture, subtle nutty flavour and protein-packed nutritional profile are just a few qualities that have secured hummus a spot at the very top of my dip list. Its fibre-filled and potassium-rich nature (due to its chickpea base) further fuel my devotion. My staunch loyalty to hummus was never called into question until the Covid-19 lockdown and my subsequent need for extended power walks. That’s when I discovered bessara.When I stumbled across Zooba ― a fast-casual Egyptian restaurant in Manhattan’s Nolita ― while taking a fresh-air walk in late May, I noticed a large poster in the window showing a neon green-hued dip with the words “NOT HUMMUS” written in large red letters above it. The description of something called bessara was printed underneath, and I immediately thought,“NOT HUMMUS? What does that mean? Why the need for such distinct disassociation, and why would you want to distance yourself from hummus in the first place, bessara?” This I had to try.After promptly ordering and sampling the dish, which was served alongside an eerily familiar-looking flat bread (not called pitta, of course), my next thought was, “Wow.” Bessara was absolutely delicious and it was definitely not hummus. Equally velvet-like but thinner in consistency, the taste of bessara is something altogether different from hummus. With a much more pronounced tang than its chickpea counterpart, bessara, which is made from fava beans, has an intriguing touch of bitterness that instantly awakens the taste buds the way a bite of pungent cheese would. There is also an undeniable pop of lemon and a punch of fresh herbs. I was immediately hooked on the beautiful explosion of flavour and needed to know more about this addictive dip. After pressing the cashier, who referred me to the manager for further explanation, I learned that bessara is considered “classic Egyptian street food” and that in Cairo, where Zooba’s owners are originally from, as well as throughout North Africa, the dish is a popular appetiser at fast-casual restaurants, falafel spots and grill restaurants ― much like hummus, which is a staple at similar establishments across the Middle East, Europe and here in the U.S. Aside from its pureed fava bean foundation, the bessara variation on Zooba’s menu owes its signature bright-green tint to fresh cilantro and parsley. The mild smoky aftertaste results from the infusion of cumin, and this contemporary take on a classic bessara recipe is made with dried fava beans as opposed to the customary fresh variety. Executive chef and co-founder Moustafa Elrefaey told me he decided to “revisit the traditional recipe with an updated flavour profile so that patrons wouldn’t have to reckon with the raw bean aftertaste.” Elrefaey, who actually grew up enjoying generations-old family recipes for both hummus and bessara, said he “personally prefers bessara” not only because it’s native to his birthplace, but because he finds the dip “lighter and more flavourful.” As a recent bessara convert myself, I agree wholeheartedly. But don’t take my word for it ― try Elrefaey’s recipe for yourself and taste the difference.Bessara Recipe from Moustafa ElrefaeyIngredients1 chopped onion3 whole garlic cloves, peeled2 cloves of garlic, minced2 tablespoons corn oil1 cup peeled fava beans2 1/4 cups water1 teaspoon ground coriander seeds1 teaspoon ground cumin2 teaspoons salt3 tablespoons chopped parsley3 tablespoons chopped cilantroSqueeze of fresh lemon juiceFried onions (optional, for garnish)Directions1.

The last time I went car shopping, I drove home a Toyota RAV4 hybrid.
But I seriously considered a Tesla Model 3.
I should be in the market again in the next year or so, and this time around, I've already made my decision: I'm buying a used Tesla Model S from the 2012-13 period.
Here's why I want to be the proud owner of an "old" Tesla.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
Last year, I had to buy a new car, in a rush. At the time, I was very much in the thrall of the Tesla Model 3 and seriously considered purchasing one. But for a variety of reasons, I ended up with a certified pre-owned Toyota RAV4 hybrid, and despite a few dents and dings, I've been quite happy (full disclosure: I already owned a CPO Toyota Prius).
With a pair of teenagers in my house, I'm probably looking at acquiring a few more sets of wheels in the coming years, and I've already made up my mind about what the next vehicle will be: an early Tesla Model S.
It's about time. I've covered Tesla since the years when the carmaker was barely selling any cars at all — just the original Roadster. Since then, I've sampled everything the company has produced, excluding the very new Model Y crossover.
And while the Roadster is my favorite and always will be, I'm a professional automotive journalist and don't need to actually own an impractical two-seater; I get to test at least half a dozen of them every year anyway. And over a decade ago, I possessed first-generation Mazda Miata and scratched that itch.
So it's going to be Model S, ideally a 2012 or 2013 iteration. Here's why:FOLLOW US: On Facebook for more car and transportation content!
The Model S was Tesla's first "clean sheet," designed-from-scratch, all-electric car. Here's the current version, which got a design update in 2016.
It was the first real styling upgrade since the vehicle's launch in 2012. The big change was the elimination of the "nose cone" on the front end, a sort of fake grille.
Here's what the nose cone looked like in action.
I am a nose-cone fan! I've gotten used to the "grille-less" new design and understand the logic: electric cars don't inhale air and don't need grilles. But I just think it looks better than the cone-less Model S.
The Model S made Tesla and CEO Elon Musk proud. It firmly established the then-tiny company as the premier manufacturer of luxury EVs.
Admittedly, my favorite Tesla remains the first one I ever drove: the original Roadster. But that car was impractical (if a lot of fun), and it wasn't all-Tesla, based as it was on a Lotus chassis.
Read about my drive in my favorite Tesla ever.
Of course, if I actually owned one, I could say that I drive an earthbound version of the only production car that's currently in orbit.
As some readers know, I'm a hybrid enthusiast. I own a 2011 Toyota Prius.
Read about my devotion to the Prius.
And a 2017 Toyota RAV4 hybrid.
My RAV4 has suffered a few indignities since I bought it, but I've fixed them myself and thus far the crossover has been a joy.
Here's how I fixed the damage with a cheap roll of tape.
BUT I'll be investing in some new wheels in the next few years and I've already made up my mind: It's Model S or bust!
I just adore the car and think that it would be ideal for my suburban lifestyle. I don;'t want a red one, however. I want blue.
As it turns out, I've driven the very car I want to buy, a 2013-vintage, single-motor Model S. This particular version was a "Performance" trim level
I later drove a dual-motor version of the car. For my money, the single-motor is fine, and I prefer the driving dynamics.
The Model S was designed by Franz von Holzhausen, and the car lover in me wants to own some of his work. I think he's among the most influential designers of all time.
Read about Von Holzhausen's contribution to Tesla.
I also like that Tesla Model S's were, and are, made in California — at a factory near San Francisco.
The early examples of the Model S endured some production snafus, but because the car uses a lot of aluminum in its construction, it's held up incredibly well. I check out old Model S cars all the time, and even in the Northeast, most look almost new.
When it comes to owning any Tesla, access to the company's worldwide Supercharger network is a boon. Tesla now bills for access, but early customers could use these fast-charging outpost for free. You can fully recharge in about an hour.
Read about why Tesla's Supercharger network is a competitive advantage.
That said, this process does requires an adjustment. You can refuel a gas-powered vehicle to an equivalent Tesla Model S range in five minutes.
Tesla discourages it, but many Tesla sales and service locations have Superchargers on site.
Tesla also has a network of partners who provide slower, level 2 charging at various destinations and in parking structures. This level can help an owner top off with enough electrons to get to a Supercharger location.
Tesla will also help an owner install a dedicated level 2 charger at home.
And in a pinch, an owner can use their Tesla-supplied cable to plug into 240-volt of 110/20-volt power. The latter is really slow, however: around one mile of range per hour.
I think the Model 3 might be one of the best cars money can buy right now, and before I got the RAV4, I seriously considered getting a 3.
Read about the Model 3's brilliance.
Older Model S cars also tend to hold their value. In my shopping for a 2012-2013 car, I'm often seeing $30-35,000 asking prices, with some examples near $40,000. Low-mileage cars are between $40-$50,000.
Contrast with my 1998 Saab 900S, a car that I loved but that eventually depreciated to the junk yard. Cost me $6,000 to buy, sold for about $300.
The interior of the Model S isn't what anyone would call excessively luxurious, but it is a study in well-thought-out minimalism, and the seats are rather comfortable.
The back seats are also quite roomy. Plenty of room for three passengers.
I wasn't initially a fan of the massive central touchscreen, which controls many vehicle functions, but after experiencing it half a dozen times, I've come to appreciate the technology.
You really can't beat the Model S for cargo capacity. While its has plenty of room under the rear hatch ...
... It also has a front trunk, or "frunk," where a gas engine would be on a traditional car. This give the Model S the cargo capacity of an SUV.
What about the Autopilot semi-self-driving feature on an older Model S? I don't much care. When I drive a Tesla, I enjoy being behind the wheel so much that having the most current version of the hardware doesn't affect my thinking.
Say hello to my next car! Frankly, I'm going to love saying that I have a "old Tesla!"

Urban development in the eastern United States results in an increase in flash flooding in nearby streams, but in the arid West, urbanization has just the opposite effect, according to a Penn State researcher, who suggests there may be lessons to be learned from the sharp contrast.Lauren McPhillips, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, who led a study of how urban development affects stream flows in the Phoenix, Arizona, metropolitan area, believes the research may yield clues for better stormwater management everywhere."We found that 'flashiness' -- a measure of the rise and fall rates of water flow in streams -- actually decreased with the extent of imperviousness in arid, urban, Southwest watersheds," said McPhillips, who has appointments in the colleges of Agricultural Sciences and Engineering."That is the opposite pattern to that observed in previous studies in wetter regions such as the East."Researchers analyzed 14 years of flow records from U.S. Geological Survey stream gauges and similar data from the Flood Control District of Maricopa County to determine how hydrologic characteristics varied with urban development.The study looked at 19 watersheds that drained areas ranging in size from less than a square mile to 175 square miles.
Master & Dynamic is turning five years old, and because of that milestone, it’s releasing a wireless version of its MH40 headphones.The original MH40 is one of Master & Dynamics more successful models, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to see it get a wireless version.The headphones are launching today, but if you want a pair for yourself, you’ll need to plop down a fair amount of cash.The wireless MH40s don’t look much different from the original MH40s from a design standpoint.If fact, you’d be hard pressed to find any differences between the two aesthetically, aside from the required cable for the original MH40.According to Master & Dynamic, the wireless MH40 uses custom 40mm Neodymium drivers and employs Bluetooth 5.0 for its wireless functionality.
There were reports that the company was committed to staying family friendly, rather than exploring the adult content and creative liberties that both premium cable and streaming can offer.Plus, most of the trailers were pretty underwhelming.episode, your regular Original Content podcast hosts are joined by TechCrunch writer Sarah Perez to discuss all the Apple TV+ shows we’ve sampled so far — “For All Mankind,” “See,” “Dickinson” and even “Snoopy in Space.” And we were pleasantly surprised by what we found.Just a few episodes in, “For All Mankind” (an alternate history in which the Soviet Union won the race to the moon) and “See” (set in a world where everyone has lost the sense of sight) have turned some of us into fans.And even “Dickinson” — which has the seemingly impossible task of telling Emily Dickinson’s story using modern slang— turns out to be a strange and watchable experiment.We save our most extensive discussion for the most high-profile title of the bunch: “The Morning Show,” which stars Jennifer Aniston as Alex Levy, longtime host of an AM news show also called “The Morning Show,” and Reese Witherspoon as local news anchor Bradley Jackson, whose confrontation at a coal mine protest ends up going viral right as Alex’s show implodes, thanks to sexual misconduct allegations against her longtime co-host Matt Kessler (played Steve Carell).
Boffins build search engine based on feelings expressed about programming interfacesDevelopers looking for guidance about APIs may wish to try a search engine prototype called Opiner to assess how their peers feel about specific programming interfaces, based on a limited set of data pulled from Stack Overflow.Opiner is a sentiment-based search engine.But it can tell you, for example, that about 64 per cent of developers have expressed positive opinions about MongoDB and about 36 per cent have disparaged it.And it aggregates Stack Overflow comments so searchers can review the specific statements people have made about the technology.The project was developed by Gias Uddin when he was working on his doctorate at McGill University and his PhD advisor, Foutse Khomh, associate professor at Polytechnique Montréal.
The wireless Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of devices in which each device can directly send information to another over wireless channels of communication, without human intervention.In this technology, information transmission is distributed among various parallel channels based on the traffic in a particular channel at a given time.But, at present, optimal information transmission channels are selected using algorithms that cannot be supported by most existing IoT devices because these are resource-constrained; i.e., they have low storage capacity and low processing power, and must be power-saving while remaining in operation for long periods of time.In a recent study published in Applied Sciences, a group of scientists from the Tokyo University of Science and Keio University, Japan, propose the use of a machine-learning algorithm, based on the tug-of-war model (which is a fundamental model, earlier proposed by Professor Song-Ju Kim from Keio University, that is used to solve such problems as that of how to distribute information across channels), to select channels."We realized that this algorithm could be applied to IoT devices, and we decided to implement it and experiment with it," Professor Mikio Hasegawa, the lead scientist from the Tokyo University of Science, says.In the experiment, the devices were tasked with waking up, transmitting one piece of information, going to sleep, and then repeating the cycle a certain number of times.
