1.) When was the last time you ate pork chops? That was the last time you’ll ever eat them. The pork and beef industries have announced that they've gotten approval from the USDA to rename hundreds of cuts of meat. And pork chops are no more. The purpose is to make the names more descriptive and less complicated. Different types of pork chops will now have steak names like New York chops, ribeye chops, and T-bone chops. Beef loin top sirloin cubes are now kabobs.
Pork butt, which comes from a pig's shoulder, is now a Boston roast. And a boneless shoulder top blade beef steak is now a flatiron steak. But ground beef is still just ground beef.
2.) As if losing your hair wasn’t enough, now new research suggests that bald men are at a higher risk of heart disease. According to Bloomberg, this Japanese research finds the greater the baldness, the greater the risk. The findings apply only to those who have lost their hair on top, at the crown, as opposed to those with receding hairlines.
An expert with the British Heart Foundation says more research is needed to confirm any link between male pattern baldness and an increased risk of coronary heart disease, but in the meantime, it's more important to pay attention to your waistline than your hairline.
3.) If you love Facebook, now you can get it more. Facebook has announced “Home” for Android smartphones and tables. Home Home essentially is a custom start screen for your Android phone, replacing the home screen with one centered on Facebook. While users can access other Android apps on the phone, the focus is on those apps that run on the Facebook platform. Home can also be enabled as a lock screen. It will be available one week from today, April 12th.
