Another argument used against anti-gentrification campaigns is that they are fighting a force of nature. Gentrification is a process as old as time itself, and you may as well just protest against the changing of the seasons. There is a tendency, as with anything, for older, more experienced commentators to take a puff on their pipe and remark, “Oh you hot-heads, do you think any of this is new?” This kind of response, while containing some truth, is often used to stifle action. “This has all happened before” carries with it an unstated corollary, “ ... and is thus an organic, inevitable and inexorable process – and, presumably, since we are both standing here today having this discussion, with all of our limbs intact, and roofs over our head, not an especially harmful one.” … [Read more...] about Gentrification X: how an academic argument became the people’s protest
We can continue to hang clothes to air dry on a sunny day. Though sunlight can be used to kill off pathogens, according to the WHO, it hasn't been proven effective against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

The sponge Schuhbeck lines his dough with cake crumbs, Dunk with semolina and my mum reckons her landlady used to use breadcrumbs – all to soak up the crimson juices of the ripe plums as they split in the oven. This strikes me as a very good idea: a certain amount of damp squidge is desirable, but sogginess certainly isn’t. Spare cake is not something I have lying around, however, and semolina, though easier to resist, isn’t half as nice with plums as ground almonds, so I decide to give them a whirl instead, and find they work admirably. If you’d prefer to keep it nut-free, use one of the other options instead. … [Read more...] about How to make the perfect German plum cake

“In Bavaria, the food is really oriented to enjoy with a glass of beer. The Haderner Augustiner (Würmtalstraße 113) is just around the corner from our brewery. It’s really Bavarian, so you have schweinshaxe, which is pork leg. You get a great pork roast; it has a really crunchy crust. They have a nice beer garden, too, and the building is almost 300 years old. It’s one of the first breweries in Munich. If you stay in Munich, you have to visit Ratskeller (Marienplatz 8). It’s very good Bavarian cuisine. Both places have typical Bavarian styles inside, lots of wood: wood floors, wood paneling, wood chairs. But Ratskeller is more Gothic with stained glass and painted vaulted ceilings.” … [Read more...] about A Brewer’s Guide to Munich
