Weird And Wonderful Ways To Eat Oreos

By Ben Greenwood

There isn’t a cookie available on the market that has a particular eating method as strongly attached to it as Oreos (apart from maybe it’s British equivalents, the Custard Cream and the Bourbon). The classic twist, lick and dunk method is almost as famous as the cookie itself, and is employed by Oreo fanatics all around the world.

Even though the twist, lick and dunk method is the prominent method for tackling a delicious Oreo, those aforementioned fanatics haven’t just settled for eating their favourite cookies in this manner. There is a wealth of interesting ways to eat your Oreos, some weird and some wonderful but all sharing one common characteristic – they’re delicious!

Oreo Cheesecake

The tough choice between cookies and cakes has been one that has plagued those with a sweet tooth for many years. Thankfully, one genius came up with a way of letting us all have our cake and eat it – the Oreo cheesecake.

Like a regular cheesecake, the Oreo cheesecake consists of a biscuit base and cream cheese topping. Unlike regular cheesecake, however, the biscuit base is made from crushed up Oreos and the cheese is sprinkled with chunks of cookie. The Oreo cheesecake has quite a few delicious spin-offs too, including peanut butter Oreo Cheesecake, upside down cheesecake and mini cheesecakes!

The Cookie Within A Cookie

Otherwise known as ‘Cookie Inception’, the cookie within a cookie is basically a regular chocolate chip cookie…with bits of Oreo as the chocolate chips. Sounds delicious, although it does make one wonder what further possibilities there could be for Inception-esque treats…a cookie within a cookie within a cookie perhaps?

Oreo Mint Cocoa

Oreos, bless them, aren’t the most sophisticated of cookies; they make quite the mess and don’t owe themselves to the standards of etiquette expected at a dinner party, for example. After dinner wafer thin mints are much more the order of the day.

But should one wish to consume Oreos at a sophisticated soiree, how would one go about it? Look no further than Oreo Mint Cocoa, a delectable hot beverage infusing the classic Oreo cookie with chocolate and peppermint extract. Divine.

Deep Fried Oreos

There’s a school of thought within the world of food that the only way to make a good thing better is to stick it in a deep-fat fryer…and sometimes they are right.

The idea of a deep-fried Oreo isn’t one that sounds particularly appealing, and your doctor definitely wouldn’t recommend you eat them, but they certainly are a taste experience. Deep fried in pancake batter, these treats are a favourite at carnivals and definitely worth trying at least once…just don’t make them a regular treat!

Oreo Pizza

Hold up, what? Oreo Pizza?! Don’t worry, this is nowhere near as weird as it sounds – it’s actually more of a pie than a pizza. The base is made from crushed up Oreos and brownie batter, while the toppings can be just about anything you want – you can even sprinkle even more crushed up Oreos on top for the ultimate treat!

Wikinews interviews candidate for Cleveland mayor Arthur Kostendt

Monday, June 14, 2021

Arthur Oliver Kostendt, a candidate running in the mayoral election of the US city of Cleveland, Ohio set to take place November 2, discussed his campaign and policies with Wikinews this spring.

According to Cleveland Scene, 29-year-old Kostendt is a member of the Cuyahoga County, Ohio Republican Party but has referred to his campaign as “casual”. According to his web site’s personal biography, he was a cadet for the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), scout platoon leader for the 2nd Squadron of the 107th Cavalry Regiment of the Ohio Army National Guard and logistics officer for the 1st Battalion of the 145th Armored Regiment. He served in Kuwait, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and assisted coalition force detachments in Southeast Asia.

Kostendt is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and summa cum laude graduate of Cleveland State University. He writes he uses an apostrophe to abbreviate his middle name as “Arthur O’Kostendt” instead of the customary period after the O to emphasise his Irish heritage.

A poll published May 5 by Baldwin Wallace University, which does not feature Mr Kostendt, has Dennis Kucinich and Basheer Jones leading in the mayoral race by 17.8 and 13.3 points, respectively, with a margin of error of up to five per cent either way. 48% of those surveyed were undecided. Incumbent mayor Frank G. Jackson, who won the 2017 Cleveland mayoral election with 59% of the vote, is eligible for a fifth term but announced on May 6 he would retire.

Lynne Curtin Facelift Surgeon

Lynne Curtin Facelift Surgeon


Abigail Aaronson

After revealing amazing results, more and more people were drawn to the Lynne Curtin facelift surgeon. Wondering what it would be like to make an appointment? Here are some of the issues and procedures that were discussed during this season of Real Housewives of Orange County.

Mother’s Procedures

When meeting with the Lynne Curtin facelift surgeon, she expressed a problem in the way that her face looked. After working out and working hard to maintain her body, she felt that her face just didn’t fit with the rest or her appearance. While some of her issues came from sun damage, others were a result of normal aging.

In order to change her appearance, the Lynne Curtain facelift surgeon worked to remove some of the skin that was sagging and lifter her forehead and brows to create a smoother texture across her face. While this type of surgery creates a major change, the scars are left in places that are rarely noticed by others including the hairline and behind the ears.

When everything was completed, she was thrilled with the results and suggested that the procedures had taken years off the look of her face. This gave her an added sense of confidence and made her feel as though her body was more complete and matched better overall. Others around her also agreed that the surgery made a change for the better.

Daughter’s Consultation

Her daughter went with her to consult with the Lynne Curtain facelift surgeon; however, her daughter was interested in something completely different. She first expressed an interest in removing a bump from her nose in order to give her face a more attractive appearance. At a later date, this operation was performed.

Her other request was breast augmentation. After hearing more, the doctor recommended that this be something to put off until a later date. Because of her age and current rate of development, it was determined that the augmentation would not only be something that may be unnecessary, but could also be something that does more damage than good.

Family Consultation

Today, more and more mothers and daughters are coming in together for a consultation for procedures that change the appearance. Mothers are looking to recapture a more youthful look from the past and daughters are looking to make the changes they want early in life to have time to enjoy them. Instead of putting something like this off, they want to be able to feel confidant right away.

If this is something that you, or a family member is interested in, take the time to make a consultation. You can even contact the Lynne Curtain facelift surgeon to find out how a similar operation would be able to give you a more healthy and youthful appearance. By meeting with a doctor, you are able to find out what you can have done and get an idea of the procedure’s price range. Also, if someone else in the family wants to make a change, take them along with you.

IBM to launch software that works on Linux, Windows and Macintosh

Monday, February 12, 2007

On Sunday the representatives of International Business Machines Inc. said that the company will launch its new desktop software system for businesses. IBM’s new product is called “Open Client Offering”. The company hopes that its product will put Macintosh or Linux software on a more equal footing with Windows.

The Open Client Offering software was developed by IBM in-house, as well as with partners like Novell Inc. and Red Hat Inc. It is to answer the questions regarding the cost-effectiveness of managing Linux or Apple desktop personal computers alongside Windows PCs.

IBM officials stated that Open Client Offering will allow enterprises to use the same software on Windows, Linux or Apple’s OS X. It will be unnecessary for companies using Open Client to pay Microsoft for licenses for operations because these will no longer rely on Windows-based software.

Scott Handy, IBM’s vice president of Linux and open source, stated that the company worked together with the open source community and in the end found a way to develop a software that is able to function regardless of the operating system.

To create an alternative to Microsoft, IBM is going to offer Open Document Format software that the company developed for word processing, spreadsheets or presentations, instant messaging and blog tools and Internet Explorer’s long time rival – Firefox Web browser.

The software developers at IBM believe that the usage of Open Client Offering can cut the cost of managing applications as well as maintenance and cost regarding customer support on company networks that require other software rather than Windows.

PSA Peugeot Citroen, being the second largest car manufacturer, signed a multi-year agreement with Novell, which is the provider of Linux software, to run Linux on its 20,000 desktop PCs. In addition Linux will be installed on 2,500 server computers.

RedMonk’s analyst, Stephen O’Grady, said that today there is a strong appetite for Windows alternatives. However, he said, this doesn’t mean that the alternatives are to displace Windows wholesales. O’Grady outlined that no one is going to significantly damage the desktop dominance of Microsoft.

Four Russian stores hit with gas attacks

Monday, December 26, 2005

In Russia’s second largest city, St. Petersburg, four gas attacks left more than 70 people ill. Devices with wires, timers, and glass vials of a gas determined on scene to be methyl mercaptan were found in outlets of Makisdom, a home improvement chain store. The chemical is both naturally occurring and manufactured and is used as an oderant for detection of propane or natural gas leaks.

Store officials have said that they had received threats that sales would be disrupted before New Year’s. Russians traditionally give gifts on the holiday. Police officials said they believed a commercial dispute or a prank not terrorism.

The local emergency hospital was overflowed from the influx of ill people from the attacks. Valentina Matviyenko, Governer of St. Petersburg, said that those who sought medical help were not suffering any further medical problems.

A custodian at one of the stores found the devices and alerted police. The devices were found at another store with their vials broken. The devices in the two other stores were carried outside by employees and covered with buckets. The police explosives experts defused them.

European airspace closed by volcanic ash

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Hundreds of thousands of air travelers had their travel plans disrupted in Europe by volcanic ash from the Eyjafjallajökull eruption.

Tens of thousands of air travelers were stranded when all flights into and out of the United Kingdom were grounded, as it became one of the first nations to be affected. The grounding was even more extensive than that following the September 11 attacks of 2001 when only trans-Atlantic flights were canceled.

Eurocontrol released a statement saying “…most air traffic in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden is suspended.”

The grounding is because the volcanic ash drawn into the jet stream is of a particle size which allows it to remain aloft in the atmosphere. Ingestion of this foreign matter, because of its distribution, would lead to flame outs in all aircraft engines. The composition of the ash also means that it would first melt into glass if it were to enter the engine of an aircraft before solidifying again as it cooled. This could lead to damage to the compressors and fan blades, which would make it impossible to restart the engines, even if the aircraft were to exit the cloud.

The current contingency is informed by the experience of British Airways Flight 9, which on June 24, 1982 suffered just such complete engine flame outs when it flew through the plume of Mount Galunggung in Indonesia. In that case, the flight crew after many efforts was able to restart the engines, though one failed shortly after, and the aircraft landed without casualties.

The UK National Air Traffic Services (NATS) has stated that “restrictions will remain in place in UK controlled airspace until 1300 (UK time) tomorrow, Friday 16 April, at the earliest,” and that “We will review further Met Office information and at 0230 (UK time) tomorrow we will advise the arrangements that will be in place through to 1800 (UK time) tomorrow.” The NATS statement concluded “…the situation cannot be said to be improving”.

In addition to Northern Europe, the ash is drifting south; Berlin and Hamburg airports in Germany are closed, and airports in the Netherlands, Belgium and Northern France are described as now being closed or closing. Some flights from Spain and Portugal, together with upwards of 4,000 flights across Northern Europe, have been affected, and the knock-on effect of aircraft and crews out of position could disrupt air travel worldwide for up to 72 hours.

One affected group are British musicians booked to play at this weekend’s Coachella Festival in California. Amongst those stranded are Frightened Rabbit, Gary Numan, The Cribs and Bad Lieutenant.

Insure Your Investments By Insuring Your Business

byAlma Abell

Whether you run a small business or a large business, it is very important to make sure that your business is insured. It takes a lot of hard work and investing to run a successful business. Make sure it is protected and minimize risks of a financial state by keeping it insured. There are many risks that can hurt a business such as injured employees, a natural disaster, the death of your partner, or even a lawsuit. It is imperative that enough insurance is purchased to cover all of your assets. Even businesses that are an LLC need protection. They may already be protected concerning business liabilities, but they still require protection from losses that require liability insurance. This is especially true for companies that need business insurance in Traverse City, MI.

Check Your State Insurance Requirements

Many state governments require a company that has employees to carry business insurance. They also determine the requirements for business insurance. There are different types of insurance that need to be provided by a company such as state disability insurance, workers compensation insurance, and unemployment insurance. A company may also need to carry commercial auto insurance if they own trucks and cars that are used in direct line with their business. When a company uses an independent insurance company to find the best rates on different types of business insurance, they can expect to find more affordable quotes from a variety of insurance companies. If a company has a financial lender, they may also be required to obtain fire, flood, life, and business interruption insurance. All of these types of insurance will help protect investments. You can rely on an independent insurance agency to find an affordable selection of policies to review with the coverage you require.

Compare Quotes to Find Great Insurance Opportunities

When an independent insurance agency has a rating system in place, you are assured quality comparisons from the professionals. While you speak with them one on one about your business, be sure to give them all of the pertinent information requested. It is important that you both are completely transparent so they can earn your trust. Once you review quotes that fit your price range, you can rest assured that your investments and your business are protected by an independent insurance agency that make your needs their own needs. Find comfort in being insured by qualified agents that have your best interests at heart.

Wikinews interviews 2020 Melbourne Lord Mayor Candidate Wayne Tseng

This article mentions the Wikimedia Foundation, one of its projects, or people related to it. Wikinews is a project of the Wikimedia Foundation.

Thursday, October 22, 2020

2020 Melbourne Lord Mayor candidate Wayne Tseng answered some questions about his campaign for the upcoming election from Wikinews. The Lord Mayor election in the Australian city is scheduled to take place this week.

Tseng runs a firm called eTranslate, which helps software developers to make the software available to the users. In the candidate’s questionnaire, Tseng said eTranslate had led to him working with all three tiers of the government. He previously belonged to the Australian Liberal Party, but has left since then, to run for mayorship as an independent candidate.

Tseng is of Chinese descent, having moved to Australia with his parents from Vietnam. Graduated in Brisbane, Tseng received his PhD in Melbourne and has been living in the city, he told Wikinews. Tseng also formed Chinese Precinct Chamber of Commerce, an organisation responsible for many “community bond building initiatives”, the Lord Mayor candidate told Wikinews.

Tseng discussed his plans for leading Melbourne, recovering from COVID-19, and “Democracy 2.0” to ensure concerns of minorities in the city were also heard. Tseng also focused on the importance of the multi-culture aspect and talked about making Melbourne the capital of the aboriginals. Tseng also explained why he thinks Melbourne is poised to be a world city by 2030.

Tseng’s deputy Lord Mayor candidate Gricol Yang is a Commercial Banker and works for ANZ Banking Group.

Currently, Sally Capp is the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, the Victorian capital. Capp was elected as an interim Lord Mayor in mid-2018 after the former Lord Mayor Robert Doyle resigned from his position after sexual assault allegations. Doyle served as the Lord Mayor of Melbourne for almost a decade since 2008.
