US sports LeBron James joins NFL in hitting back at Trump: ‘The people run this country’ NFL Share on Facebook Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)The booing at the NFL football game last night, when the entire Dallas team dropped to its knees, was loudest I have ever heard. Great angerSeptember 26, 2017 Share via Email Since you’re here… Following a weekend of kneeling and protesting across the NFL, the Cowboys and their owner displayed their own version of unity Monday night, kneeling on the field before rising as a group prior to the playing of the national anthem.“I hope that I’m clear and I hope that our team is clear: We want to respect the flag. Make no mistake about that,” Jones said.“Nothing that we’ve done, nothing that we did tonight says anything other than that. We also want to as a complete team, as players and an organization, be able to, whenever we can, demonstrate that unity is important and equality is important.“That’s what I’m so proud of these guys for, they did both and did it in a way when people really stop and think about it, makes a lot of sense.”The Cowboys sat and watched the protests across the NFL on Sunday and spent most of Monday discussing the best way to show unity without denigrating the flag.After warmups Monday night, they went into the locker room and returned to the field for the anthem, lining up between the sideline and the yard markers on the field.Arm-in-arm, they dropped to a knee as a giant flag was carried onto the field, with Jones and his family in the middle near the 50-yard line.Numerous boos rang out across University of Phoenix Stadium as the Cowboys kneeled and continued as the players rose, still arm-in-arm, and stepped back to the sideline as the flag was unfurled across the field. They remained connected as Jordin Sparks sang the national anthem.“The objectives, as much as anything else, was to somehow, some way demonstrate unity and demonstrate equality, and do so without any way involving the American flag and the national anthem,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said.President Trump, tweeting on Monday morning, appeared pleased with the outcome. Topics Support The Guardian Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, so the speculation was that he would not allow his players to kneel during the national anthem.The Cowboys and their owner did kneel, though not during the anthem. Share on Twitter The Arizona Cardinals had their own symbol of unity after a weekend of protests in the NFL, gathering along the goal line arm-in-arm during the national anthem. They were joined by owner Michael Bidwell, his family and general manager Steve Keim.More than 200 NFL players kneeled, sat or prayed during the national anthem on Sunday after President Trump said any player who does not stand for the national anthem should be fired.Three teams did not take the field for the national anthem and numerous NFL owners came out against Trump’s statements.

Most of these competitions would be within India and my family and I would drive down to participate in them as we couldn’t afford to take the train or fly. But these road trips were still an amazing experience as they allowed us to spend time together as a family and bond. The first ever place I travelled to was Bangalore, to play in the under-10 tournament. Since then, my tryst with travel has been really unending, as I now spend about 30 weeks in a year travelling.I feel that when one travels, one’s mind opens up to learning. Having said that, travel is also a major part of what I do and who I am. If I don’t play tennis then I don’t travel. I feel that travelling is an important part of any sportspersons life – it instills discipline and literally takes you places. Sania Mirza.One of the fondest memories I have is of a road trip that my family took from Mumbai to Tiruvananthapuram. It took us almost 24 hours because the car we were driving wasn’t in the best shape so we had to stop and check it every couple of hours. We were joined by some family friends and it turned out to be more of a vacation than a sports tournament. It was an incredible journey. For me, travelling rarely means a luxurious hotel -its more about what I learn from the experience.I’ve ticked off most of the destinations on my wish list, except a couple. New York is one of those places that I love going back to. Bora Bora and Maldives are next on my list. Most of my travel ends up being hectic and I look forward to the opportunity to unplug and unwind when I can.advertisement(As told to Jahnavi Chakravarty) Nilima Sheikh.”Kashmir helped me develop my visual language” Nilima Sheikh, artistI could possibly ask how does travel not affect my work? There is so much in travel that affects the making of art, certainly of my art. Travel takes you across histories, not only across geographies.During my childhood, travels with my parents took me to different corners of the country at least twice a year. We went down south or to Orissa in winter and to the Himalayan region in summer. Our extensive travels in Kashmir, it would be no exaggeration to say, were fundamental to the forming of my visual language. Many years later, this experience of travelling, very often walking across land, gave me the means to attempt to paint the complexities of the land in a series of works, notably large canvas scrolls which collectively were called Each night put Kashmir in your dreams (a line from poet Agha Shahid Ali). The first of these scrolls which I titled Valley (2003) was indeed an attempt to retrace the travels and treks of my young days into a map, which I layered with revisits in successive works. Kashmir was a major influence in Nilima Sheikh’s work. Photo: ShutterstockI have also travelled with my artist and art historian husband Gulam Mohammed Sheikh over the years to sites of historical art and to museums across the world. These travels have been prompted by the desire to see in the real cherished art works and to discover new ones as well. Two consecutive visits to the painted grottos in Dunhuang in Central Asian China were some of my most inspiring encounters with art. I have often tried to bring traces of this experience into my work; I am still trying. Some of the works in which the inspiration comes considerably from Dunhuang are Travel Routes (2007), Traffic on the India China Highway (2007), What happened that day 1 (2008) Another chronicle of loss (2008) The beautiful village of Pachigam still exists 2 (2009-10) and Overland (2010).If I were to choose to reproduce any of these works I would select The beautiful village of Pachigam still exists 2 (2009-10) because it includes inspiration from Kashmir as well as Dunhuang/Central Asia).(As told to Chinki Sinha) Payal Singhal, fashion designer.”I don’t have to travel far for inspiration” Payal Singhal, fashion designerEvery time you travel, you get inspired in some way by the landscape, art and culture. For me, it is the art and architecture of a place that draws me instantly. While I do travel abroad, as a designer, it is Indian art and architecture that draws me the most-the temples, mosques and monuments and the history behind each of them. I study the era and explore the journey and progression of a particular form of architecture which gives me a diverse perspective and varied ideas. I don’t have to travel too far for inspiration. The palaces of Jaipur, Udaipur and other areas of Rajasthan, the Taj Mahal and the monuments in Delhi have so much inspiration to offer each time I visit them.advertisementThe Palace of Mirrors collection that I presented a few years ago was inspired by the shimmer and the intricate mirror mosaic work of the Sheesh Mahal at the Amer Fort in Rajasthan. Similarly, I have drawn inspiration from other palaces as well. I often observe the monuments that were built during the Mughal era in India. When I studied the history of Mughal art and the way it evolved as it travelled from Uzbekistan to India through Persia, Afghanistan and Pakistan, I could see how the art picked up local elements from artisans and developed a whole new form. Mughal art as we see it today in India is a confluence of various cultures. Islamic art traditionally doesn’t use animal or bird motifs whereas Indian art has a lot of flora and fauna. So, when the two met and mixed, we got a new version. This can be seen in my latest collection Qo’shillish, which means confluence in Uzbek, which I launched last month. In another collection, I have also explored the Turkish and Persian carpet motifs and prints that I have seen during my travels.(As told to Aditi Pai) Cooking on the White Continent was an inspirational experience for chef Atul Kocchar.”Antarctica left me speechless” Atul Kocchar, ChefWhen I was younger my father wanted me to become a doctor or an engineer, however I opted for a prestigious chef apprenticeship with the Oberoi group of hotels in India. This opened my eyes to new and exciting destination and the world of travel and culture, as my apprenticeship took me to Orissa and then later onto New Delhi. My love affair with travel started here.Travel is incredibly inspiring; different sights, smells and sounds all enlighten your senses in new ways, and I always channel this into my cooking. I really enjoy adapting to new ways of cooking and it’s always very rewarding working with local produce and recreating culturally revered dishes in my signature style.Of all the places I have travelled to, I have exceptionally fond memories of Venice, Italy. There is something special about travelling around a destination by boat. We spent our days exploring Gothic and Renaissance palaces, and sampling beautiful seafood risotto and sweet pastry fritole. I am hoping a visit to Cambodia that is on the cards will re-awaken my taste buds.Travel has played a key role in my journey as a chef and more recently I embarked on a journey that transformed me in many ways. In December 2018, I embarked on a second mission to Antarctica with The Q Experiences, to cook for a very special group of guests. Words cannot describe the emotions I underwent while curating a dining experience on ‘The White Continent.’ It was truly an experience of a lifetime.advertisementI think it’s very important that you respect and take inspiration from the environment you’re cooking in and as this was second visit, I knew what to expect. Fish played a key role in my dishes, all of which were designed to be comforting and warm. Also my culinary curation focused on guest preferences and since half the group was vegetarian, I curated a special menu to satisfy the Indian palate. I am all set for a hat trick visit to Antarctica this December with The Q Experiences.After conquering the south, this June, I will be going on another rare journey to explore the Arctic summer. We will be travelling to the region of Svalbard, which is very close to the North Pole. After these trips, who knows what will be next, but I am sure there will be another voyage of discovery.(As told to Prachi Bhuchar)You’ve reached your article limitSign in to keep reading India TodaySign inSign up NOW to get:Premium content on Aaj Tak HD ChannelUnrestricted access to India Today magazine contentGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

18 May 2010High unemployment rates continue to hinder poverty reduction efforts in Africa, the United Nations says in a new report released today, stressing that African countries must give priority to diversifying their economies to create decent jobs to boost social development. “Africa’s long-term growth prospects and ability to sustain high rates of employment generation and broader social development depend on success in economic diversification,” according to the Economic Report on Africa 2010, published by the UN Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the African Union Commission.The current global economic crisis offers African countries an opportunity to lay the foundation for sustainable, employment-intensive economic growth, says the report.“The recession should work as a wake-up call for Africa to deal with its vulnerabilities and introduce further reforms to promote growth, but more particularly employment creation to promote social development in the region,” said Rob Vos, Director of Development Policy of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), at the launch of the report in New York.The report – whose theme is “Promoting High-level Sustainable Growth to Reduce Unemployment in Africa” – recommends investment in infrastructure and human capital, renewed efforts to mobilize domestic resources, market reforms, incentives to support private-sector employment and efforts to increase productivity and incomes in the informal sector.It warns African countries against continuing to depend on traditional drivers of economic growth, such as exports of raw commodities, foreign investment and development aid, saying those sources of resources were unpredictable.Gross domestic product (GDP) in African economies declined from 4.9 per cent in 2008 to 2.4 per cent in 2009, but is expected to grow by 4.8 per cent in 2010, the report says.Commodity prices, an important determinant of growth in many African economies, fell at the beginning of 2009, but have since rebounded and are expected to stabilize in 2010 and rise moderately in 2011, according to the report.The rebound in commodity prices observed in 2009 was, however, mainly due to increased petroleum prices, resulting in part from increased demand from China following its stimulus package as well as the upward revision of expected world demand, the report notes.However, as a result of the depreciation of the United States dollar, 2009 commodity prices were below their 2008 levels in real terms.The document reveals considerable regional variations in growth in 2009 across African regions and countries.Growth was highest in West Africa at 5.5 per cent, partly as a result of a boost in oil output in the Delta region of Nigeria following the reduction in hostilities.East Africa posted a 4.3 per cent growth, much higher than the earlier estimate of 3.9 per cent, while North Africa posted a GDP growth rate of 3.6 per cent.The worst hit region was Southern Africa where GDP declined by 1.1 per cent, followed by Central Africa with a paltry 1.8 per cent growth rate. Africa’s other major challenge is climate change, according to the report, which states that agricultural output is expected to decrease by 50 per cent on the continent, resulting in severe under-nourishment. The health burden and conflicts will increase as populations fight over dwindling resources, the report adds.The cost of climate change adaptation and mitigation measures are, however, extremely high and beyond the means of African countries, notes the report.It is estimated that the cost of adaptation is between 5 and 10 per cent of continental GDP, the report says, stressing that it is crucial for the international community help meet the cost of climate change mitigation and adaptation in Africa.
“The Secretary-General is convinced that this issue must now be resolved,” his spokesperson said in a statement issued ahead of the fifth anniversary of Mr. Shalit’s capture on 25 June 2006. Mr. Ban also joined the Director-General of the International Red Cross in calling on Hamas to protect the soldier’s life, treat him humanely, prove that he is alive and allow the Shalit family to have contact with their son.The Secretary-General called on Hamas to comply with international humanitarian law, and commended the recent call from a coalition of Israeli and Palestinian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for the humane treatment of Mr. Shalit. “The United Nations on the ground will continue to support the conclusion of negotiation efforts to secure his release, which would also entail the release of a number of Palestinian prisoners,” the statement added. 24 June 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called once again for the immediate release of Israeli Staff Sergeant Gilad Shalit, who has been held captive by Palestinian militants for the past five years, and pledged the continued support of the United Nations for efforts towards this goal.
ThoroughTec Simulation stamped the completion of its global expansion with the introduction of its new 4th generation CYBERMINE simulator system at AIMEX in Australia and Extemin in Peru. This followed the recent establishment of the South American office in Santiago as well as the expansion of the Australasian office in Perth, the North American office in Toronto and the South African office in Durban which supports the EMEA region. This expansion was essential to meet demand and increase the support network across the globe following successful sales to the University of Alaska, Yukon Mine Training Association, Anglo American and Wesfarmers, amongst others (see October issue of International Mining).For the first time in many years, visitors to AIMEX (held at the site of the Sydney Olympics in 2000) were offered the unique opportunity to physically compare ThoroughTec’s new 4th Generation CYBERMINE simulator with those of other simulator companies, all in one location. ThoroughTec, now with a newly established office in Santiago, Chile, made its grand entrance into the South American market with an impressive display at Extemin in Arequipa, Peru.Both events attracted record trade visitor numbers with significant increases in interstate and international visitors, Thoughtec reports. “Mine site senior management, CEOs from training & recruitment schools, technical directors from OEMs and mining students from several universities flocked to the exhibitions. Many came by appointment to test arguably the most difficult machines to simulate in the industry: the Dragline and the Underground Dual-Boom Drill Rig. Visitors were also treated to demonstrations of quick changeovers between Haul Truck, Dragline and Underground Drill Rig Cabs.“OEM representatives from Caterpillar, Komatsu, Sandvik, P&H, Joy, Atlas Copco and Liebherr were at hand to give their opinion of the new simulators. Most of their comments highlighted the CYBERMINE4 system’s unique ability to interchange between any Surface and Underground equipment and across all OEMs. The new generation system also boasts the largest in-container classroom space, an enhanced instructor operator station with dual hi-definition screens for student monitoring, recorded training sessions and complete 3D fly-around freedom within the virtual mine world.“ThoroughTec’s business model and brand values were also enthusiastically received. The largest, fastest growing machine coverage and rapid development times for new machines appealed to many mine sites, as did the technology architecture that allows customisation of every machine to specific customer-centric requirements.”Greg Lew and Mark Walker, two of ThoroughTec Simulation’s executive team, were present at AIMEX and commented that the market validation of their value proposition and superior products has been quite overwhelming. This company took a serious look at customers’ highest values and then put its military simulation Research & Development team to work at re-shaping how mining simulators should be built.Dr. John Waltham, ThoroughTec’s Executive Director, and Felipe Ramirez, ThoroughTec’s newly appointed Regional Manager present at Extemin, said “We have always believed that sound engineering principles are the key to building a sustainable advantage. The credibility of ThoroughTec’s 20-years of Military Standard Engineering (MIL-STD) and accredited ISO 9001 Quality Management System differentiates us from everyone else’s gaming industry background. With many mines being in isolated areas we consider reliability, maintainability and availability to be of utmost importance when purchasing simulators and hence manufacture so as to ensure the highest mean time between unscheduled maintenance and the lowest total cost of ownership.”
Sweetnam has been in fine form. Source: Ryan Byrne/INPHO“He’s one of our leadership group and one of our most experienced players,” said van Graan. “He’s here to give every bit of assistance that he can and every per cent at this stage matters. It’s great to have him around and that’s why he travelled.”Captain Peter O’Mahony underlined Munster’s belief that Sweetnam can make an impact in Earls’ absence.“He’s a quality rugby player,” said O’Mahony of Sweetnam. “It’s not like he’s not a regular in the squad, he’s had nine starts on the bounce. If anything, he’s match fit and ready to go. We’ve all got 100% faith in all the squad.” Van Graan said that lock Jean Kleyn – a doubt with a leg injury – “trained really well” all week and is fully fit to take on the challenge Saracens will pose up front. Munster’s win in Benetton last weekend posed a handful of selection decisions for van Graan this week but there were few surprises in the end, with Jack O’Donoghue backed in the number seven shirt ahead of Chris Cloete, who misses out altogether.“Jack played really well against Edinburgh, he played blindside last weekend,” said van Graan. “I thought Chris played really well against Cardiff and Treviso. There were a few decisions we had to make but the team that beat Edinburgh got us over the line and got us here.“A few guys in the squad pushed really hard against Treviso, but Jack was the man in the side and he performed really well in the 25 minutes he played against Edinburgh. So, I decided to go with him.”Gavan Casey and Murray Kinsella are joined by Andy Dunne to preview the Champions Cup semi-finals and all the week’s news on the latest episode of The42 Rugby Weekly: By Murray Kinsella Source: The42 Rugby Weekly/SoundCloudSubscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: Apr 19th 2019, 5:55 PM Share Tweet Email Injured Earls ‘a big loss’ but Munster back Darren Sweetnam to deliver The 25-year-old has started nine games in a row for Johann van Graan’s side. https://the42.ie/4599934 Friday 19 Apr 2019, 7:45 PM 39 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 20,331 Views Murray Kinsella reports from the Ricoh ArenaTHERE’S LITTLE WAY of sugarcoating the fact that losing Keith Earls to injury puts a dent in Munster’s hopes of causing an upset against Saracens in Coventry tomorrow.But, as with everything under head coach Johann van Graan, the Irish province are looking on the bright side.The loss of Earls – the two-try man of the match in Munster’s Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final win over Edinburgh – due to a thigh injury means Ireland international Darren Sweetnam gets another starting opportunity in Europe.

Obviously, it’s a game that he really wanted to play and he’s been in fantastic form. He played tremendous rugby with two big moments against Edinburgh.“The next man in, Darren Sweetnam, he’s done it so many times this year. He’s played some excellent rugby throughout the year and this is a massive moment for him.“In terms of the team, it’s not really a disruption, we’ve backed our squad the whole season and Sweets is in.”Despite the fact that he won’t be involved on the pitch, Earls has travelled with Munster to Coventry, keen to add to the effort in any way he can.

Harnessing the full range of its platforms and channels, Time Out built an intricate campaign for its Bar Awards sponsor, spanning seven cities.The third annual Bar Awards, presented through a paid partnership with William Grant & Sons, makers of Hendrick’s Gin and Glenfiddich Whisky, provides the distillers with a multi-channel, 10-week-long, B2B campaign, in order to produce the seven-city-spanning awards across the company’s many platforms and through live events for bar professionals and the brand’s audience.The North American Bar Awards, taking place in New York City, Miami, Philadelphia, Chicago, Austin, Los Angeles and San Fransisco, were launched to “help position the brand as an authority and key partner in each city’s bar scene amongst owners, local experts, bartenders,” according to Christine Petersen, CEO of Time Out Digital. According to Petersen, its partners wanted to take advantage of the sponsorship opportunity again after the successes it saw with the Bar Awards last year. Both Time Out and William Grant & Sons looked at factors like making industry connections, attendance of live events—including gaging the energy and camaraderie of attendees—media coverage, and social media coverage, to measure their successes compared to the previous year’s engagement. Time Out confirmed that all of their goals in these categories were met or exceeded last year and have been hit or exceeded so far this year. The campaign is rooted in digital, video, social, CRM, print and live events in each city, and relies on the sponsor’s active involvement in each of these areas, though the planning and prep of the campaign is turn-key for the distillers and is the collective responsibility for Time Out’s various teams.Petersen says that the planning process began six weeks before the first event and focused on integrating digital platforms—areas where the Time Out audience is notably engaged—including on social media and in video.“William Grant & Sons will be receiving five pieces of custom video content, produced in-house by the Time Out Creative Solutions team,” says Petersen. The content ranges from celebrating the winning Bars of the Year to featuring different bartenders who answer questions about their profession or their bars’ signature cocktails, all highlighting the spirits from the sponsor’s distillery.Outside of digital promotion, the key element of the campaign is the live events which tie in the sponsor by connecting them with the local bar communities and professionals across the various cities. “William Grant & Sons looks to put their brand in hand via event product sampling, showcasing their premium liquor portfolio to new potential clients, and rewarding their top accounts for their business,” says Petersen.William Grant & Sons’s campaign involved the company’s direct participation in each of the cities’ live events as well, including the exclusive use of the distiller’s liquor at each of the events and sponsoring two of the awards, Bar of the Year and Best Legacy Bar, at each event.Charlotte Voisey, William Grant & Sons’s director of brand advocacy, is working alongside the portfolio’s team of Ambassadors to curate signature cocktails for each city, and Petersen says that they “also joined the judging panels together with the Time Out editorial team and other bar industry experts.”One difference at each live event is that William Grant & Sons selects a “hero brand”—a specially curated liquor for the city based off of customer insights and local preferences—which Petersen says allows for the brand’s whole portfolio of drinks to get in the spotlight throughout the campaign. The campaign is also leveraging customer relationship management through the use of email newsletters post-events in each city. “William Grant & Sons is being included as a partner in these emails and it is a great way to inform the experience-hungry, Time Out audience to get out and enjoy the best the bar world has to offer right now,” she says.Since this is the second year with William Grant & Sons’s involvement, Petersen says there were a few event calibrations that were made for this year’s Bar Awards, including scaling back on the amount of food provided at the events. “We were able to scale back to light bites and reallocate the budget to other elements that made more of an impact to our guests and the campaign, such as more prestigious awards. Rather than framed certificates, the winners now receive a tangible crystal award that can be displayed on the bar or on-site more prominently,” she says. The awards also feature Time Out’s and William Grant & Sons’s branding.In order to achieve a fluid campaign across the seven cities, the various departments in the Time Out organization that are involved in building the campaign had to overcome the challenges of being spread out across several time zones, while also ensuring that the sponsor and everyone across the Bar Awards are aware of timelines and the different elements.“We have one dedicated project manager from each core pillar that is responsible for all Bar Awards deliverables in their area of business,” says Petersen. “They ensure that all internal and external deliverables are met and that the clients are happy with the end result.”So far, the campaign and the Bar Awards has been successful for both parties, and Petersen says that the live awards that have already occured have had excellent turnout from professionals and consumers. “We have been able to bolster invaluable connections with industry leaders across the country, while also achieving both the quantitative and qualitative goals of this campaign.”As the sponsors, William Grant & Sons’s director of brand advocacy Charlotte Voisey, says the distillers are excited by “the results coming together across all facets of the partnership, from the media coverage and social sharing to the energy and camaraderie generated through the live events.”
Imagine playing Asteroids on a 150-foot surface with your body and a smartphone as the controls. This incredible invention is real, and if Two Bit Circus has anything to say about it will be part of a travelling STEAM Carnival soon.Anyone who has lost a few hours of their day to some of the classic Atari games knows that nostalgic feeling you get when you see the game somewhere. Maybe an homage to the game is setup in decal form on someone’s wall, or you stumble across the game in one of those controller 10-pack game sets, but the feeling is the same every time. Two Bit Circus has taken that feeling and amplified it with their new Human Asteroids game, which puts the game on a massive floor space for you to scoot around and play yourself.With a Kinect sensor mounted up high and a projector to paint the game on the floor, the use assumes the mantle of Player 1 in a unique way. With smartphone in hand, the game uses the direction you are facing as the direction to point the ship. You push fire on the smartphone, and the rest is Asteroids as you remember it. Break the big green things into little green things, and don’t let any of them crash into you. There doesn’t seem to be an consequences to letting the asteroids hit you, just the ship floating in front of you.This is all part of what is being called the STEAM Carnival, which is currently a Kickstarter project to take cool things like this game and make them part of an actual roaming carnival. This State Fair style carnival will focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in the hopes that they will inspire more children to become interested in those fields as career choices.If Human Asteroids is an example of what to expect, the rest can only be amazing.
3-D printing has made waves in industries from fashion to space to biotech. It’s also poised to radically transform the way we think about and prepare food.Image credit: Modernist Cuisine | Vimeo That was the takeaway from a talk on the future of 3-D printing given Wednesday at the Tribeca Film Festival by 3D Systems’ chief entrepreneur officer Ping Fu, who announced that the company will be launching a consumer chocolate 3-D printer this year.3-D printing technology is already being used by high-end chefs — she shared a video of an elaborate 50 course meal prepared by the Modernist Cuisine’s Nathan Myhrvold that integrated 3-D printed elements — but has yet to go mainstream.Video credit: Modernist Cuisine | VimeoFu predicts that will soon change. “I believe the food printer will be the first one that is going to be adopted in everybody’s home,” she told the audience, painting a picture of a near-future where cooking a meal is redefined as designing it on a computer and then printing it out in the kitchen. “3-D printing will allow delicious nutritious food with great presentation to be delivered locally.”Related: How a 3-D Printer Just Gave This Little Girl an Awesome, New Prosthetic HandIt will also allow individuals to ‘cook’ for friends and family members remotely. When her daughter was growing up, Fu often had to work late at the office. She wanted to somehow still cook her dinner, a futile fantasy. At least, it was back then. “With a 3-D printer, this is totally possible,” she said.We’re still a long ways from 3-D printing entire meals, and Fu understands that for many people, 3-D printing dinner may feel like cheating, replacing a messy, joyful social process with a cold and clinical one.She urged the audience to keep an open mind. Replacing cooking with 3-D printing doesn’t necessarily make the process less social. Just instead of collaborating in the kitchen, families will “co-create” around the computer.
