[TRANS] 120807 JYJ’s Kim Junsu Is A Gourmand? ‘He Can’t Hold Back When It Comes To Food’

[TRANS] 120807 JYJ’s Kim Junsu Is A Gourmand? ‘He Can’t Hold Back When It Comes To Food’

 JYJ’s Kim Junsu is belatedly receiving much attention for pictures that have surfaced of him showing his ‘Gourmand Junsu’, ‘Hungry Junsu’ side.

China Photo Press recently released photos from the June 22nd press conference of Kim Junsu’s Taipei concert. On this day, Kim Junsu confessed that he had greatly missed eating Taiwanese snacks as it had been a year since he had last visited the country. He revealed that he especially enjoys bubble tea.

During the press conference, the hotel prepared six representative Taiwanese snacks for Kim Junsu to enjoy. The snacks that were placed in front of Kim Junsu were bubble tea, xiǎolóngbāo (steamed dumpling), fènglísū (pineapple cake), dàjīpái (fried chicken fillet) and various fruits. And as the day after the press conference was to be Tano, the traditional Chinese snack zòngzi (glutinous rice and filling wrapped in leaves and boiled) was also included.

 It may have been due to the fact that he had traveled by plane to reach the nation, but Kim Junsu looked hungry. He tried each dish and stated that they were all very delicious. The Chinese press later commented that Kim Junsu enjoyed the food so much that he seemed to have forgotten that he was in front of cameras and reporters.

 Nine years since his debut, Kim Junsu has recently released his first solo album. He stated that, “Before, the three of us would always be together and perform as a group. That’s why I actually felt uncomfortable when I first started my solo activities.” However, he added that he grew accustomed to it as time passed.

111201 Horses Could Soon Be Slaughtered For Meat in US

Horses Could Soon Be Slaughtered For Meat in US


I guess it’s opinion morning, but this is one area in which I have a sensitive spot. Three animals are not in my menu plan–dogs, horses, and cats. I realize that this is a cultural mindset, Americans generally do not eat these animals on a regular basis.  I also realize that horses are large muscle animals, so there is a lot of meat per pound per animal, and, in the past under duress, horses have been eaten in America. According to this article, the meat is targeted for overseas consumption–France, Japan, Europe, and other Asian countries. I guess in theory I can’t argue–it is quality protein. However, when I think about the horses who personally give me joy, I have a hard time imagining them on someone’s dinner table.  Momma Cha

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Horses could soon be butchered in the U.S. for human consumption after Congress quietly lifted a 5-year-old ban on funding horse meat inspections, and activists say slaughterhouses could be up and running in as little as a month.

Slaughter opponents pushed a measure cutting off funding for horse meat inspections through Congress in 2006 after other efforts to pass outright bans on horse slaughter failed in previous years. Congress lifted the ban in a spending bill President Barack Obama signed into law Nov. 18 to keep the government afloat until mid-December.

It did not, however, allocate any new money to pay for horse meat inspections, which opponents claim could cost taxpayers $3 million to $5 million a year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture would have to find the money in its existing budget, which is expected to see more cuts this year as Congress and the White House aim to trim federal spending.

The USDA issued a statement Tuesday saying there are no slaughterhouses in the U.S. that butcher horses for human consumption now, but if one were to open, it would conduct inspections to make sure federal laws were being followed. USDA spokesman Neil Gaffney declined to answer questions beyond what was in the statement.

The last U.S. slaughterhouse that butchered horses closed in 2007 in Illinois, and animal welfare activists warned of massive public outcry in any town where a slaughterhouse may open.

“If plants open up in Oklahoma or Nebraska, you’ll see controversy, litigation, legislative action and basically a very inhospitable environment to operate,” predicted Wayne Pacelle, president and chief executive of The Humane Society of the United States. “Local opposition will emerge and you’ll have tremendous controversy over slaughtering Trigger and Mr. Ed.”

But pro-slaughter activists say the ban had unintended consequences, including an increase in neglect and the abandonment of horses, and that they are scrambling to get a plant going — possibly in Wyoming, North Dakota, Nebraska or Missouri. They estimate a slaughterhouse could open in 30 to 90 days with state approval and eventually as many as 200,000 horses a year could be slaughtered for human consumption. Most of the meat would be shipped to countries in Europe and Asia, including France and Japan.

Dave Duquette, president of the nonprofit, pro-slaughter group United Horsemen, said no state or site has been picked yet but he’s lined up plenty of investors who have expressed interest in financing a processing plant. While the last three slaughterhouses in the U.S. were owned by foreign companies, he said a new plant would be American-owned.

“I have personally probably five to 10 investors that I could call right now if I had a plant ready to go,” said Duquette, who lives in Hermiston, Ore. He added, “If one plant came open in two weeks, I’d have enough money to fund it. I’ve got people who will put up $100,000.”

Sue Wallis, a Wyoming state lawmaker who’s the group’s vice president, said ranchers used to be able to sell horses that were too old or unfit for work to slaughterhouses but now they have to ship them to butchers in Canada and Mexico, where they fetch less than half the price.

The federal ban devastated “an entire sector of animal agriculture for purely sentimental and romantic notions,” she said.

Although there are reports of Americans dining on horse meat a recently as the 1940s, the practice is virtually non-existent in this country, where the animals are treated as beloved pets and iconic symbols of the West.

Lawmakers in California and Illinois have banned the slaughter of horses for human consumption, and more than a dozen states tightly regulate the sale of horse meat.

Federal lawmakers’ lifting of the ban on funding for horse meat inspections came about in part because of the recession, which struck just as slaughtering stopped. A federal report issued in June found that local animal welfare organizations reported a spike in investigations for horse neglect and abandonment since 2007. In Colorado, for example, data showed that investigations for horse neglect and abuse increased more than 60 percent — from 975 in 2005 to almost 1,600 in 2009.

The report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office also determined that about 138,000 horses were transported to Canada and Mexico for slaughter in 2010, nearly the same number that were killed in the U.S. before the ban took effect in 2007. The U.S. has an estimated 9 million horses.

Cheri White Owl, founder of the nonprofit Horse Feathers Equine Rescue in Guthrie, Okla., said she’s seen more horse neglect during the recession. Her group is caring for 33 horses now and can’t accept more.

“A lot of the situation is due to the economy,” she said, “People deciding to pay their mortgage or keep their horse.”

But White Owl worries that if slaughterhouses open, owners will dump their unwanted animals there instead of looking for alternatives, such as animal sanctuaries.

Animal rights groups also argue that slaughtering is a messy, cruel process, and some say it would be kinder for owners to have their horses put to sleep by a veterinarian.

“Euthanasia has always been an option,” Pacelle said. But “if you acquire a horse, you should be a responsible owner and provide lifetime care.”

The fight over horse slaughtering has pitted lawmakers of the same party against each other.

Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., said the poor economy has resulted in “sad cases” of horse abandonment and neglect and lifting the ban will give Americans a shot at regaining lost jobs and making sure sick horses aren’t abandoned or mistreated.

But U.S. Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., is lobbying colleagues to permanently ban horse slaughter because he believes the process is inhumane.

“I am committed to doing everything in my power to prevent the resumption of horse slaughter and will force Congress to debate this important policy in an open, democratic manner at every opportunity,” he said in a statement.

[Trans] 110727 Stars Share Their Maintenance Products, To Beat The Summer Heat

Even idol stars, when faced with the blazing summer heat will inevitably lose strength. With a schedule actively packed with television appearances, commercials and magazines in a day, they are bound to lose their appetite, and become weaker. Artists have harder work schedules than most people, so what is their secret to maintaining their pale complexion in the middle of summer? Let us start by studying the types of nutritional products that artists who are losing strength like to eat.

JYJ, who cannot be without Ginseng Chicken Soup and Gongjindan

To JYJ, who are already known to be regular gourmets, a “hot summer day” is a day to eat out. Kim Jaejoong, who is currently involved in the shooting of drama “Protect the Boss” enjoys eating spicy food, and uses spicy noodle soup, and spicy stir-fried squid and other dishes to welcome the hot summer.

Park Yoochun, who is currently taking a break after the filming of “Miss Ripley,” is truly the iced tea spokesperson, and prefers to eat summer fruits. Differing from his fashionable “city” look, he really enjoys eating spicy chicken & potato stew and kalguksu (Korean knife-cut noodles) and other Korean dishes.

Kim Junsu, who is participating in the OST of the anticipated drama “Scent of a Woman” enjoys chicken dishes, and ginseng chicken soup is his favourite nutritious dish. Also, the “gongjindan” (Korean supplement) which became well-known due to the MBC drama “Greatest Love” is also a necessity for the JYJ members.
