Because some douche in the tags seems well convinced that the community is “thriving”
Close the fucking gap.
Health inspectors are putting the kibosh on kimchi, the fermented cabbage dish that’s a staple of Korean cuisine, because they “don’t understand what it is,” say many Korean restaurant owners.
The gist of the issue is that kimchi is usually left at room temperature, meaning it’s above the DOH’s 41-degree temperature requirement for cold foods. Inspectors have been violating and fining Korean restaurants across the city, which owners say is unfair, because kimchi has an acidity level below 4.6, meaning it’s not hazardous. One health commissioner said he’s willing to let kimchi slide if restaurant owners can prove it’s acidity is below 4.6, but owners say they don’t have the time or means to test every batch.
“Traditionally-prepared kimchi has been a staple of Korean food for thousands of years and has proven to have many health benefits. By fining restaurants for the way kimchi—and other fermented foods—are prepared, the Health Department is essentially forcing us to dissolve an ancient practice that is at the core of Korean cuisine,” said Ja-Boon Kwak, owner of Kang Suh restaurant in Koreatown. Chinese restaurants with hanging ducks and pizza parlors with slice displays have been subject to similar fines from the DOH, who might be a little too obsessed with the “danger zone.”
…. But… but…. but… kimchi’s not a cold food? Is it? o.o
really need this
can i have a print of this
Gosh. I need to remember these steps and also not beat myself up when I don’t do some of them.
essentially what i hear when you tell me “just find a way to cope with your panic attacks!” or “decide to be happy and you will be!” or “it’s not that hard to focus, you just need to knuckle down!”— so excuse me if i look at you a little bit incredulously
so excuse me if i look at you a little incredulously.
totally +1, but also, i totally laughed.
September 10th (yesterday for me) is World Suicide Prevention Day
Be as kind to yourself as you can. If you are having long-term suicidal thoughts, you are ill. You are not weak, you are not failing, you are not letting anyone down. You are sick, and just like if you had a bad cold, or some sort of infections, you need to take care of yourself, and let your body and your mind recover.
There is not a quick fix. Talking to a friend, or a professional, or a help line, taking medication, spending some time in short or long term care, these are all helpful but take take time, something you can take as much of as you need. I wish I could promise you that talking to someone would force your mind and your body to heal, but it won’t. This is not because you’re a failure, but because you are ill, and again, you need to give yourself time, because you are not a failure, and you are not letting anyone down.
It is not failing.
And if it is, that’s ok, too.
