Race to Space Presents Opportunity for Moroccan Youth to Attend Space

By Carolina McCabeRabat – The fifth annual Race2Space (‘Race to Space’) application will open on Sunday, December 16. In partnership with the US Embassy in Rabat, the Scientific Morocco Association seeks Moroccan students ages 15 to 18 interested in science and mathematics. The contest aims to provoke creative thinking about fundamental concepts in STEM. Students applying for the contest must put together a creative three-minute video about a concept or theory in STEM. For the first time, the application also requires an experiment, demonstration, or simulation within the video that illustrates the concept being communicated. “If we are to build a greater appreciation of science in the public consciousness, education is key. We need great scientists, but more importantly great communicators who can unlock the mysteries of nature in ways that amaze us, ” said El Hassan Bouaghad, the vice president of Scientific Morocco and director of the program. “Exposure to a topic for the first time allows innovative insights, and youth have the ability to communicate with their peers in a way that others can’t.”Read Also: Moroccan Scientist Kamal Oudrhiri Proud of NASA’s InSight Mars LandingAfter the submission of applications on January 19, 2019, a team from the Scientific Morocco Association will pre-select applications to then be reviewed by a jury of scientists and science communicators. Students are judged on their ability to communicate the topic in an engaging, interesting, and imaginative way. Students applying must also engage in peer review. Each applicant will rate the applications of five other applicants. The 12 winners will receive full scholarships, paid for by the US State Department, to the renowned Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama in July of 2019. The students will also travel to Washington D.C., where they will visit scientific, cultural, and educational sites on an immersion tour. The Scientific Morocco Association aims to make scientific knowledge more accessible to Moroccans. With various initiatives, the association strives to create opportunities for Moroccans to engage in STEM. According to their website, “Space Camp provides unique inspirational experiences to talented youth that can help shape their future choices and push them to inspire other kids.”Space Camp is held at the US Space and Rocket Center. Every year students from across the United States and over 150 countries take part in the camp. Throughout the experience, trainees experience simulated missions, collaborate in teams, and learn about flight and space history.According to Space Camp, 61 percent of all graduates are in the fields of aerospace, defense, energy, education, biotech or technology, or studying to do so. read more

Morocco To Call 10000 Young People into Military Service in 2019

Rabat – Ten thousand young people are to begin service in the military each year beginning in September 2019, Moroccan Minister Delegate for National Defence Administration Abdellatif Loudiyi told the Commission on Justice, Legislation, and Human Rights. The commission was examining Bill 44.18 on mandatory military service.Loudiyi also said that women and Moroccans residing abroad (MREs) could be exempt from draft. The bill, which has not yet been passed in Parliament, provides for temporary or permanent exemptions such as physical or mental incapacity, needing to support family, or pursuing studies.Read Also: Pentagon Supports Moroccan Military ForceThe Council of Ministers adopted the bill on August 20, quickly triggering public concern and comments on social media. The bill sets the age of compulsory military service from 19 to 25 years of age. The mandatory military service will significantly increase Morocco’s spending over the medium term, according to a Fitch Group report. read more

Security Council extends deployment of extra troops in Côte dIvoire

The Security Council today decided to extend up to three months the temporary redeployment of United Nations peacekeeping units from Liberia to Côte d’Ivoire, which has been bedevilled by a political deadlock arising from presidential elections late last year.This includes three infantry companies, an aviation unit comprising two utility helicopters and three armed ones and their crews from the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) to the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI), according to the unanimously adopted resolution.Côte d’Ivoire descended into turmoil in early December when outgoing President Laurent Gbagbo refused to leave office despite opposition leader Alassane Ouattara’s UN-certified victory in the run-off poll. Mr. Ouattara has been recognized by the international community as the duly elected president.On 20 December, the Council renewed the mandate of the nearly 9,000-strong UNOCI force until the end of June this year, rejecting a demand by Mr. Gbagbo that the UN mission leave the country. Then last month, it reinforced the mission with an extra 2,000 troops and equipment, which UNOCI chief Y. J. Choi said would provide “rapid reaction capability” essential for the protection of civilians. UNOCI was established in 2004 by the Council to facilitate the peace process in the West African nation, which became split by civil war in 2002 into a rebel-held north and Government-controlled south.Cote 16 February 2011The Security Council today decided to extend up to three months the temporary redeployment of United Nations peacekeeping units from Liberia to Côte d’Ivoire, which has been bedevilled by a political deadlock arising from presidential elections late last year. read more

Syria deputy UN relief chief urges political solution amid extremely challenging humanitarian

Humanitarian access to civilians trapped by the Syrian conflict is being increasingly obstructed by the ongoing fighting in the country and a shortfall in critical funding, a senior United Nations relief official warned today. Delivering remarks at the Security Council’s briefing on Syria, Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Kyung-Wha Kang, told delegates that despite the international community’s efforts to find a political solution to the hostilities, violence continues with “utter impunity” leading to a spiralling deterioration of the crisis. “Over the past month, this violence, which is perpetrated by all parties to the conflict, has neither abated nor diminished in brutality,” Ms. Kang observed. “The parties…continue to violate human rights and international humanitarian law with impunity – killing and torturing civilians, blocking humanitarian access, destroying and besieging communities.” In its latest situation report, OCHA warned that some 12 million people in the Middle Eastern country today remain in need of humanitarian assistance – a 12-fold increase since 2011. The figures include 5.6 million children. Meanwhile, 7.6 million people have been displaced by the conflict and over 4 million have fled across borders. The humanitarian impact of the crisis is only further compounded by the grim human toll which, as of today, counts over 220,000 people killed and over one million injured since hostilities began. Despite the “extremely challenging environment,” Ms. Kang continued, humanitarian organizations operating within Syria and from neighbouring countries are continuing to reach millions of people in need. However, she added, due to depleted funds, food assistance across the region is now in jeopardy and the tenuous situation inside the country has made access to the 4.8 million people in hard to reach and besieged locations “a serious challenge.” “Given the fluid and dynamic nature of the conflict in Syria, it is crucial for UN agencies to be able to use any and every route, across borders and conflict lines, to reach those who require assistance,” said the UN official. “But these efforts require adequate resources. Only a quarter of the appeal for live saving work in Syria and the region is funded today.” The humanitarian challenges facing the UN and other aid agencies are further impaired by the regular and indiscriminate use of barrel bombs by Government forces as well as attacks on medical facilities and the continued use of explosive weapons in populated towns and cities. “For the people of Syria and humanitarians who assist them, it is hard to see an end to this nightmare of violence and destruction,” Ms. Kang concluded. “We look to the leadership of this Council to press for a political solution.” read more

Jets lose again but at least put up a fight vs Patriots

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Any athlete will state firmly that a loss is a loss, regardless of the quality of performance.Still, the way the New York Jets fell to the New England Patriots 27-13 on Sunday didn’t have a terrible look or feel. Certainly not how their 41-10 debacle against weak sister Buffalo felt in the Jets’ most recent game before their bye.For one, the Jets’ fifth straight defeat was to the perennial AFC power. For another, they were tied 13-13 late in the third quarter and were making things difficult for Tom Brady and Co.That’s clearly so much better than basically not showing up against the offensively challenged Bills, then getting torn up for 41 points.So what’s the message to their frustrated fans in a spiraling season that could be the last of four for coach Todd Bowles?“Stick with us, man,” said second-year safety Jamal Adams, one of the few Jets having a good season. “Obviously, they’re hurting and we get a lot of negative comments and we understand it. I get it. I get the frustration, but at the end of the day, we’re hurting twice as much as you. So, just stick in there with us, man. We’re going to figure it out.“Do I know when? Do I know the timetable? No. But all I can do is just continue to do my part as a leader on this football team and as a player on this team, and just do my job and continue to help those around me to get better.”Getting better after successive 5-11 seasons will require quite a turnaround as the calendar hits December. The Jets (3-8) show signs of decency on both sides of the ball, and placekicker Jason Myers is having a strong year; he set an NFL record Sunday when he became the first kicker to hit five field goals from 55-plus yards in one season.They hope to have quarterback Sam Darnold, the third overall pick in April’s draft, back on the field from a foot injury sometime next month.And they didn’t come close to lying down against New England the way they did vs. Buffalo.“Every man competed,” said Darnold’s fill-in, 16-year veteran Josh McCown. “Obviously, we didn’t play as clean as we would like. Up until the last tick on the clock, we competed hard. I think that was much better than last week.“It’s obviously not ideal. I think individually, it’s a test. A test of who you are and what you’re about and your ability to get back up, come back to work, work hard, and be a professional. Those things are tested in these times.”The Jets have lost all four division games in sinking into the cellar in the AFC East. With the exception of Buffalo, their remaining opponents have playoff aspirations: Tennessee, Houston, Green Bay and New England.So improving on the record of the past two seasons — and saving Bowles’ job — is a hefty challenge.“When you find yourself in this situation, you don’t desire to be there,” said McCown, whose had a heavy wrap around his right hand when he left the locker room. “The good in it is that you’re tested and you can see what you’re really about. In this tough moment it’s about the guys sticking together, each man continuing to fight, work hard and being a pro. When you’re in this situation, that’s all you can do.”___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLBarry Wilner, The Associated Press read more

How William Golding left his stamp on chess with game played in

first_imgAs part of their correspondence Curtis and his fellow players would send each other a grid detailing the sequence of their pieces’ moves across the board for the opponent to follow.When the player had received the note he or she would move their opponents piece on their own chessboard before responding and sending a note of that move back to their opponent. But Golding’s somewhat erratic arrangements also led to some longer than expected delays along the way.“Dear Curtis,” Golding begins one note, “Ruefully, I find that while I have been waiting for weeks for your next move, I didn’t send off mine and [it] has been sitting at the bottom of the heap I call my filing system.”Golding, who after the success of Lord of the Flies went on to produce another 11 novels, was modest about his abilities and joked that he should write a book about his “hundred most humiliating games”. But he was also competitive.Curtis won most of the games featured in the exchanges, but in one area he definitely did not have the upper hand: he wryly noted that it was a blow to the confidence “when your opponent wins the Nobel Prize in the middle of a game”. Golding was awarded the prize for literature in October 1983.Some of Golding’s letters were sent from Tullimaar, the home outside Truro, Cornwall, where he died in 1993. Others were from holiday destinations such as Greece and France. “Good God, this is an awful place,” he said of the sea around Thessalonika. “The moves can’t be worse than the trip up the Nile was,” he wrote about one of the games. William Golding playing chessCredit:Mark Gerson It may not seem unusual for a literary editor to engage in regular correspondence with some of the country’s greatest writers.But Anthony Curtis’ letters to Sir William Golding, Richard Adams and others were not inquiring about to their latest work, but their next move on the chess board.Curtis, the first literary editor of The Sunday Telegraph, conducted long-running chess games by post with some of the greatest writers of the day, games which would take months to complete.In this literary chess circle were Golding, most famous for his dystopian children’s novel Lord of the Flies; Adams, who wrote Watership Down and The Plague Dogs; and the poet and Oxford academic John Fuller.The letters in which Curtis and Golding exchanged chess moves have now been acquired by the Golding archive at the University of Exeter.Spanning the years 1980-1993 the correspondence gives a fascinating insight into the author’s personal life at a time when his reputation as one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century was being consolidated.In the days before the internet allowed a player’s next move to be transmitted in a flash Golding and Curtis would both wait eagerly for the post to allow them to continue the game. William Golding playing chess Anthony Curtis, former literary editor of the Sunday Telegraph, playing chesscenter_img Anthony Curtis, former literary editor of The Sunday Telegraph, playing chessCredit:Quentin Curtis “Last and most cogent after Christmas we are going to India and shall be there for more than two months and out of reach of any post but one carried in a cleft stick. That would be no way to start a game!“So there it is. I also feel you are disposing of my three pawns for a bishop with a deftness that tells me that snakes and ladders is my game. So please accept my resignation and best wishes for Christmas and a good winning streak.”The pair continued to correspond, but stuck to updates about their family lives, until Curtis died in 2014, aged 88.His widow, Sarah, has donated the letters to the Golding archive, which also holds the handwritten manuscript of The Lord of the Flies.The game appears in that novel: Golding writes that one character, Ralph, “would treat the day’s decisions as though he were playing chess. The only trouble was that he would never be a very good chess player.”Professor Tim Kendall, a Golding scholar at the university, has replayed some of the games recorded in the letters.He said: “In our age, when you can go online and play games against anyone in the world, it seems very quaint to send moves by post. This is a wonderful correspondence arising from a friendship based on literature and chess.” Eventually, Golding decided to withdraw from the chess circle.“Here is an apology,” he wrote to Curtis. “I must cry off the games… I didn’t realise what a complicated business I was getting into. I am feeling less and less competitive as the days go by and feel that a more suitable game would be one with a little cooperation in it. What marvellous sacrifices I could achieve if only my partner would cooperate! Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

PSP 2 likely to feature OLED screen and 3G support

first_imgWe discovered last week that Sony is going to announce news of the PSP 2 in Toyko this week (this Thursday to be more precise), and we now have a few more details relating to the features that will likely appear on the device.Apparently the screen will be larger than the current PSP’s 4.3″ display and it will be based on similar OLED touchscreen technology that you find in smartphones.AdChoices广告3G support will also be on-board (via NTT Docomo Japan) for game and movie downloads, but you won’t be able to make phone calls. However, the processor (unknown type at this stage) will likely be powerful enough to display HD content.Price wise you are going to pay more than the current PSP price point, but that’s to be expected due to multiple discounts on the price over the years.  Sony is also planning to roll out the device by the end of the year in Japan at least. In the West we may be waiting until early 2012.Read more at CrunchGearlast_img read more

Anyone going in there will have a huge shadow over them Niall

first_img Monday 25 Mar 2019, 8:12 PM By Sinead Farrell “The rush of the appointment, the unanimous decision of the board to tell us all late on a Saturday night in the middle of some serious scrutiny on the CEO during that time that this was best for the Aassociation and it was a great move and everybody should back it.“We’re not buying it, I’m not buying it and I think that’s an ill-conceived decision that needs to be looked at again in my opinion.It’s a role I think, if it stays in its current remit, it’s for a gillie.”Prior to the news of Delaney stepping down as CEO, the 51-year-old came under significant pressure after revelations of a €100,000 loan provided to the FAI two years ago came to light.The Sunday Times reported that Delaney had provided a loan to the FAI due to a cashflow issue arising within the association.Delaney claimed that the money was repaid in full in June 2017, and that it was the only occasion on which he issued the association with a loan.Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: The former Ireland international says the role is “for a gillie.” https://the42.ie/4560730 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article I don’t think it reads as a CEO role at all, I think it reads as half a CEO role and anyone going in there will have a huge shadow over them because the departing CEO hasn’t departed at all and it would make life very difficult.“Quite frankly, I think it’s a little bit of a charade, given the scrutiny that was in place over the last week.”Under absolutely no circumstances will I be applying for the job.””Anybody going in there will have a shadow over them because the departing CEO hasn’t departed at all”Niall Quinn pulls no punches on the FAI’s decision.#MONENG #Euro2020 #VMSport pic.twitter.com/39T3vqYfIH— Virgin Media Sport (@VMSportIE) March 25, 2019 NIALL QUINN HAS ruled himself out of applying to succeed John Delaney as Chief Executive Officer of the Football Association of Ireland at present.Delaney stepped down from the position on Saturday to take up a new role as Executive Vice-President within the Association.Chief Operating Officer Rea Walshe has been appointed as interim CEO by the FAI board while the recruitment process begins to fill the role permanently.But the former Ireland international, businessman and ex-chairman of Sunderland insists he will not be putting himself forward for the role, and has criticised the outline of the job description. “Under absolutely no circumstances will I be applying for the job given the current remit of where this job sits,” he said on Virgin Media Sport. 65 Comments ‘Anyone going in there will have a huge shadow over them’ – Niall Quinn rules out applying for FAI CEO job John Delaney stepped down from the position on Saturday.

Futuramas 10 Best Background Characters

first_img Best Gifts for ‘Futurama’ EnthusiastsMake a Meal of These 11 Real Sci-Fi Recipes Stay on target Futurama is all about its characters, right? The whole 1,000-years-in-the-future thing is just a backdrop for playing character archetypes and dialogue off one another. It allows the writers to tackle social issues or poke fun at trends that are relevant to us now, but with the lens of futuristic absurdism. Characters then, how they carry themselves, what they say, and who (or what) they’re loosely intended to represent mean everything.With that in mind, we wanted to list off some of our favorites. Now, everyone knows Fry, Leela, and the rest of the core cast, so we’re looking at minor characters or one-offs only.MomMom is a stand-in for all the seedy megacorporation CEOs. She’s an aggressive business tactician and frequently butts heads with the Planet Express crew. She’s not too interesting on her own, but she’s the focal point for some of the series’ best episodes. In “A Fishful of Dollars”, Fry learns that his once-meagre bank account has accrued enough interest to make him a multi-billionaire, he becomes consumed with trying to relive his past in the 20th century while Mom tries to rob him of his newfound fortune.It’s one of the more poignant episodes from the series as Fry struggles to let go of his lost past. Mom is the perfect foil for the plucky crew specifically because her goals are singular — make money. And the rest of the crew are, for the most part, concerned about one another.CalculonCalculon is a note-for-note send-up of melodramatic soap opera stars. But as the series progresses, he grows and has some pretty stellar episodes. In “The Honking,” Calculon was used as part of an experiment to take pieces of the world’s most evil cars like the steering will from Adolf Hitler’s car and the windshield wipers from KITT in Knight Rider. While Calculon comes off as a schlocky actor, he’s actually quite talented (at least within the context of the show), and he was so committed to his role that he dies while reenacting Romeo and Juliet during the world acting championships.NixonNixon’s legacy as an American president is weirdly mixed. He presided over every moon landing and opened up relations with China, but then again he did have a scandal so seedy that its name is still the default portmanteau for every major scandal since. And that reputation follows Nixon into the show.In Futurama’s world, presidents and other important historical figures have their heads placed in jars after death so we can continue to seek their advice and wisdom long into the future. Nixon takes advantage of this and runs for president of Earth and reigning from 3000 to well past 3012. Any time the Planet Express crew faces an apocalyptic scenario, they need a comically large check. LikeRobot DevilThe Robot Devil never takes himself too seriously. He’s as goofy and clever as he is evil, but he never goes too far. He’s presented as one of the wittiest, well-read and talented characters in the show. If he wanted, he could probably take over the whole planet and doom everyone to a lifetime of pain and torture. But that’s not really his style.He’s far more concerned with serving poetic justice or competing with others on their terms and trying to come out ahead — crushing their hopes in the process. Given how competent Fry tends to be, it’s a wonder they survive any of their encounters with this conniving fiend. As anyone who’s seen “The Devils Hands Are Idle Playthings” will tell you, just because you live through an encounter with the Robot Devil, doesn’t mean that you’ve won the day.Al GoreAl Gore’s another Futurama character based on a real-world politician, but unlike Nixon, Gore is actually voice by Al Gore. His daughter, Kristin Gore was a writer on the show, and she convinced her father to show up from time to time. Even better? Every time he does, Gore parodies his own real-world political positions. He’ll talk about saving the Earth from global warming by grabbing giant ice cubes from Pluto and dropping them into the ocean (which would cause even more world-ending floods than we currently face) or he’ll get a chance to protect the planet by using his little head-jar as the lynchpin of a key space battle.He has enough self-awareness that Gore’s appearance never feels political — it’s just a stellar running gag that, miraculously, got the cooperation of one of the US most powerful politicians.Hattie McdougalHattie Mcdougal isn’t just a crazy cat lady. She’s *the* crazy cat lady. In every episode she appears, she’s a little off. Usually cross-eyed and lacking the context for the situation, she wanders in as a side character and sticks around because of some perceived slight against one of her many, many cats. It’s a bit of a tired trope, but she’s entertaining enough that it holds up.GunterGunter might be the most tortured character in the show. He’s a laboratory chimp and the test subject for one of the professor’s more interesting experiments — a hat that grants its wearer profound intelligence. With the hate, Gunter capably keeps pace at Mars University, one of the shows’ most prestigious, and runs cerebral circles everyone else around him.The catch, of course, is that Gunter knows that his intelligence only comes from the hat. When he sees his non-enhanced parents for the first time, he’s ashamed to know just how dumb they are. Gunter suffers because he knows he is a fraud, he knows that none of his talent or intellect is real — he’s the breathing manifestation of the impostor syndrome. And it dovetails well with the series as a whole — a show that bounces back and forth between comedy and tragedy uses one of its most tragic characters as a delivery mechanism for both great jokes and pointed observations on life.Hedonism BotHedonism Bot is exactly what you’d expect. He’s an overly indulgent robot that apologizes. His body is that of a rotund man permanently reclining on a divan. He wears olive branch wreaths and constantly eats whole bunches of grapes — a clear nod to the excesses of the Roman and Greeks of old.Throughout the series, Hedonism Bot only ever has one goal — to enjoy life. And to that end, he hosts the wildest parties, attends countless orgies (obviously off-screen), and even funds Fry’s opera in “The Devil’s Hands are Idle Play Things.” In every episode, H-bot is a plot mover, but what makes him memorable is his perfectly times one-liners. After a fire erupts at one of his parties, killing or injuring most of the attendees, he sobs, saying “Everywhere I looked there were piles of bodies… and then the explosion struck.” It’s a little base, but it’s one of the dozens of great lines from the king of needless excess.The GlobetrottersThe Harlem Globetrotters are renowned the world over for their exhibition basketball games. They blend comedy and athleticism, pulling trick shots and fancy ball tricks for laughs… or at least they do in the real world. In Futurama, however, the Globetrotters are the universe’s greatest basketball team, and they threaten to crush any who laugh at their antics.Hailing from the Globetrotter home world, the team challenges Earth to a basketball game in the episode “Time Keeps on Slippin’.” The challenge has “no reason, ” and there were no stakes for the game, “beyond the shame of defeat.” Even so, the professor whips up some genetically super-charged mutants to defend Earth’s honor. But, Farnsworth used too many chronitons (a fictional particle of time), and in so doing created a “chronological wang-dang doodle” that threatened to rip reality apart. At this point, the Globetrotters reveal that they aren’t just the greatest b-ball team ever, but also some of the most talented scientists and mathematicians around.Together, with Farnsworth and literally all of Earth’s money, they fix the tear in reality and save humanity. After, the Globetrotters join on as semi-regular characters, playing interference for the Professor when he gets in over his head.Robot SantaFuturama has loads and loads of great robot characters, and Santa is one of the best. He only shows up in a few holiday episodes, but he’s a wonderful twist on the classic idea of St. Nick. Unlike his terrestrial counterparts, Robot Santa sits on Pluto and, every X-Mas he flies to Earth and goes on a massive killing spree.The story behind this is that at some point between 2000 and 3000 scientists created Robot Santa to make Santa’s job easier. But he judged everyone to be too naughty and, instead of giving a lump of coal… he’d shoot you in the face with a rocket launcher.last_img read more

Texas Sand Mines Starting to Edge Out Midwestern Counterparts

To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:center_img Texas mines that produce sand used in the hydraulic fracturing process are gaining ground against their Midwestern counterparts.With oil and gas drillers increasingly using sand mined in Texas, analysts say prices for sand from states like Wisconsin are tumbling. That’s partly because it’s just cheaper and easier to use West Texas sand, even if it’s lesser quality.Analyst Joseph Triepke, with Infill Thinking, has tracked the huge growth in Permian Basin sand mining. He says the risk is that there will be too many Texas mines, possibly as soon as the end of this year, and that they’ll start competing with each other.“Right now they’re displacing disadvantaged sand from far away, tomorrow there’s a chance they could be displaced,” he says. “You’re entering this period where we do see the potential for kind of a knife fight.”Some Texas mines could go out of business. One oil executive told The Wall Street Journal that oversupply will “educate the market” on which of the mines are built to last. Listen Sharelast_img read more

While normally that means coffee paired with your donut (we’re OK using the shortened variant since the folks at Miriam-Webster say it’s cool), that’s not the case at Habit.AdChoices广告At least not exclusively. You’re free to add a more grown-up kick to your deep-fried treat. For an extra $2, they’ll jab a pipette filled with two ounces of whiskey, vodka, Bailey’s, Kahlua, tequila, or just about any other liquor into any donut you desire. How you choose to enjoy your “shot” is up to you, of course.You could extract the pipette from its pastry prison and fire the booze directly down your throat, but where’s the fun in that? Surely it’s more satisfying to inject your donut and take a squishy, liquor-softened bite. It also just seems like the right thing to do, given that’s how your donut is delivered… sort of like how you really should buy shower beer if you’re going to drink beer in the shower.So would Ron Swanson really approve of whiskey in a donut? Absolutely. Remember, this is the guy whose “old man used to put Wild Turkey on his Corn Flakes,” so clearly Swanson men aren’t averse to combining breakfast foods with alcohol.
