The new president also announced plans to expand SNAP benefits and a school meals program

President Joe Biden has spent most of his first 48 hours in office signing Executive Orders to undo everything Donald Trump did and making sure there is an actual semblance of a plan to help Americans through the pandemic. Among the executive orders are new Occupational Safety and Health Administration guidelines and an expansion of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits.

The first, signed yesterday, is an order “Protecting Worker Health and Safety” which directs OSHA to update and enforce COVID-19 safety guidelines. “Healthcare workers and other essential workers, many of whom are people of color and immigrants, have put their lives on the line during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic….The Federal Government must take swift action to reduce the risk that workers may contract COVID-19 in the workplace,” … Read more

Scientists in EFSA program look at cross-contamination in the home

Researchers have modeled and estimated cross-contamination in consumer kitchens during a European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) program.

The model was used to work out the impact of cross-contamination routes for different scenarios. Effectiveness of several interventions in reducing the risk of foodborne diseases related to cross-contamination was investigated.

Results found the cutting board route had a higher impact compared to other sources and replacement of kitchen utensils is more effective than other interventions studied.

The project in EFSA’s food risk assessment fellowship program (EU‐FORA) provided new modelling and data on cross-contamination for quantitative microbiological risk assessment (QMRA). This can help risk managers in defining the best advice to reduce the impact of cross-contamination.

Some days I swear I’ll wake up in Paris.

But there’s one element of air travel that you probably haven’t been able to get during the pandemic, one that you might — well, somebody might — be missing: Airplane wine.

OK, let’s just pretend for a minute that this is true, that the only good thing about airplane wine isn’t that it’s sometimes free and does the trick of … Read more
