Chobani CEO Hamdi Ulukaya is standing in his company’s industrial-chic test kitchen in lower Manhattan, gleefully doing shots. He’s not drinking alcohol, but something that is, at least for him, another kind of controlled substance: milk. advertisement advertisement Yes, the Greek yogurt titan—the man who once milked cows for a living and famously bootstrapped what became a $1.5-billion-in-annual-revenue company by getting America hooked on the creamy, tart, and protein-rich yogurt of his Turkish youth—is sensitive to dairy. Around the time his trademark mop of curly hair began turning salt-and-pepper, Ulukaya realized that he was lactose intolerant and stopped drinking milk. (Yogurt, because of the fermentation process, is easier to digest.) Then, about a year ago, he began stealthily developing his own plant-based alternative. “Awesome, no?” he says, grabbing an unmarked cardboard carton and pouring himself another small glass of … [Read more...] about Exclusive: Chobani’s empire was built on Greek yogurt. Here’s why its next move is oat milks

It’s been four years since we were first introduced to The Bear, the in-house gigantic beast for the Boston Bruins. Over that time he’s become an integral part of the NHL hockey club and nowhere is that more evident than this new “Christmas Spectacular” in which the furry friend gathers all his favorite Bruins for an epic holiday party. advertisement There’s team captain Zdeno Chara hiding behind the tree, coach Claude Julien is staring out the window at snow monkeys and oh, Rene Rancourt–who’s been singing the national anthem at home games since 1976–can light fires with his magic dust. It’s a pretty weird scene. Arnold Worldwide creative directors Greg Almeida and Travis Robertson say they’ve always approached these ads for the Bruins with the mindset of what the least likely way you’d expect an NHL hockey team to promote themselves.

In a single day, more than 141 billion liters of water is used to flush toilets—and even in places prone to drought, it’s typically clean drinking water. What if you didn’t have to use as much water to flush what you put in them? Don’t be squeamish: New tech from researchers at Penn State is designed to make toilets so slippery that they’re essentially self-cleaning, cutting water use in half in the process. advertisement The design is inspired by nature: the super-slippery pitcher plant, a carnivorous plant, has a rough surface that becomes lubricated when it rains, so insects slide inside to be digested. “It’s this combination of the water and the micro-scale roughness that causes the surface to become so slippery,” says Tak-Sing Wong, an associate professor of mechanical engineering and biomedical engineering and one of the authors of a new paper about the technology published today in Nature Sustainability. Like the plant, the … [Read more...] about This new magical coating saves water by making toilets so slippery that poop basically flushes itself
Food waste is the cause du jour. Newspapers are now offering up food waste recipes, celebrated chef Dan Barber recently opened up a food waste pop-up restaurant in New York City, and across the world, other food waste experiments are emerging. advertisement advertisement Rude Food, an all-volunteer, mostly vegan food waste catering service in Malmö, Sweden, is taking on this challenge a little differently. Instead of coming up with recipes that no average human cook could hope to replicate–or only using leftovers and ignoring all the other kinds of food waste–Rude Food makes accessible foods, like pickled beetroot, carrot halvah (made with carrot peels), rucola pesto, and cabbage chips, sourced from all sorts of places. “There is this trend of big names in the food industry that close their restaurant for two weeks and say, ‘We will only cook food waste.’ They come up with recipes where I have to put my foot down. With our menu we think … [Read more...] about Eat From This Catering Service That A Dumpster Diver Would Love
