As a follow-up to his first MasterClass, Chef Thomas Keller devotes his second cooking class to beef, duck, chicken, pork, and veal, and the techniques he uses to prepare them.

Chef Keller is the only American chef to have been awarded simultaneous three Michelin star ratings for two restaurants, The French Laundry and Per Se.

In his second MasterClass Chef Keller will introduce new techniques to cook with chicken, duck, pork, and beef to build complete meals for the holidays, a dinner party, or any occasion. Students will learn the fundamentals of cooking proteins—including how to select the best grades and cuts for different dishes—to help them to cook with confidence and precision, without relying on a recipe.

Chef Keller will teach students the techniques to cook some his most beloved dishes such as his signature fried chicken and pan roasted Côte de Boeuf. Students will also learn to make stocks and sauces from scratch, including the French mother sauce chicken velouté, as well as sauces suprême, allemande, and albufera.

The Best People: Trump's Cabinet and the Siege on Washington [Audiobook]

The Best People: Trump's Cabinet and the Siege on Washington [Audiobook]
The Best People: Trump's Cabinet and the Siege on Washington [Audiobook] by Alexander Nazaryan, read by Robert Fass
2019 | MP3@64 kbps + EPUB | 9h 15m | 254.3MB

An engrossing look at the Trump cabinet: the scandals, the incompetence, the assault on the federal government, the bungled attempts to impose order on an administration lost in a chaos of its own making.

Donald Trump promised a return to national greatness, but each day of his presidency seems to bring a new crisis, a deepening sense of national unease. Why, and how, has he failed his supporters? And how has he, on occasion, bested his detractors?

The Best People takes complete measure of the Trump administration, to grasp with clarity the president and his intentions, and how those intentions are being carried out - or subverted - by the people he has hired.

Alexander Nazaryan argues that the "assault on the administrative state" promised by Steve Bannon in early 2017 never came. What the American people got instead was Wilbur Ross hauling his tennis pro to confirmation hearing preparations; Scott Pruitt running away from rattlesnakes; Reince Priebus enduring insults from junior White House staffers.

And yet, bungling as Trump's cabinet members have been, they have managed to either damage or arrest many of the gears that make government run. They have given away public lands to oil companies and allowed corporate lobbyists to make decisions about what is best for the American people, and have done it all while flying on private jets and dining at the finest restaurants, at taxpayers' expense.

Meticulously reported and enthrallingly told, The Best People takes listeners inside the federal government under Trump's control, a government assailed by the very people charged to lead it, a government awash in confusion and corruption.

Rage Inside the Machine: The Prejudice of Algorithms, and How to Stop the Internet Making Bigots of Us All [EPUB]
Rage Inside the Machine: The Prejudice of Algorithms, and How to Stop the Internet Making Bigots of Us All by Robert Elliott Smith
2019 | EPUB | ISBN: 1472963881 | 3.08MB

We live in a world increasingly ruled by technology; we seem as governed by technology as we do by laws and regulations. Frighteningly often, the influence of technology in and on our lives goes completely unchallenged by citizens and governments. We comfort ourselves with the soothing refrain that technology has no morals and can display no prejudice, and it's only the users of technology who distort certain aspects of it.

But is this statement actually true? Dr Robert Smith thinks it is dangerously untrue in the modern era.

Having worked in the field of artificial intelligence for over 30 years, Smith reveals the mounting evidence that the mechanical actors in our lives do indeed have, or at least express, morals: they're just not the morals of the progressive modern society that we imagined we were moving towards. Instead, as we are just beginning to see – in the US elections and Brexit to name but a few – there are increasing incidences of machine bigotry, greed and the crass manipulation of our basest instincts.

It is easy to assume that these are the result of programmer prejudices or the product of dark forces manipulating the masses through the network of the Internet. But what if there is something more fundamental and explicitly mechanical at play, something inherent within technology itself?

This book demonstrates how non-scientific ideas have been encoded deep into our technological infrastructure. Offering a rigorous, fresh perspective on how technology has brought us to this place, Rage Inside the Machine challenges the long-held assumption that technology is an apolitical and amoral force. Shedding light on little-known historical stories and investigating the complex connections between scientific philosophy, institutional prejudice and new technology, this book offers a new, honest and more truly scientific vision of ourselves.
