Take a tour of popular food startup Food52’s beautiful new office and test kitchen

| July 3, 2015 | 0 Comments



If you’re a fan of cooking and food, you’ll definitely be jealous of Food52‘s new digs in New York City. 

A bit like a social network exclusively for foodies, Food52 is a recipe site and cooking product marketplace where you can search for meal preparation tips and buy all of the gear you need to cook at home. 

Founded by former New York Times Editor Amanda Hesser and food writer Merrill Stubbs in 2009, Food52 has raised a total of $9 million in three rounds of funding from investors 14W, Scripps Network Interactive, Walden Venture Capital, Joanne Wilson, and Gary Vaynerchuk, among others. 

We recently paid a visit to Food52’s brand-new headquarters in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.

From a gorgeous test kitchen to food books all around, we were hungry from the moment we walked in.

One of the first things you’ll notice when you enter Food52’s office is a long, white-walled kitchen where in-house chefs try out recipes to be posted on the site. Finding a building that would allow cooking was a challenge, as most offices don’t allow gas stoves or strong food smells. Food52 uses an induction stove to avoid that.

Each dish that appears on Food52 must be cooked to perfection before it’s photographed. Here, Chef Reggie works on grilling peaches for a kale salad.

Art Director Alexis Anthony works in a small studio nearby, arranging the food to be as photogenic as possible.

Waiting to harvest after a rain enhances food safety

| July 3, 2015 | 0 Comments




To protect consumers from foodborne illness, produce farmers should wait 24 hours after a rain or irrigating their fields to harvest crops, experts say. Rain or irrigation creates soil conditions that are more hospitable to Listeria monocytogenes, which when ingested may cause the human illness Listeriosis. Waiting to harvest crops reduces the risk of exposure to the pathogen, which could land on fresh produce.

A ‘movie’ of ultrafast rotating molecules at a hundred billion per second

| July 3, 2015 | 0 Comments




Can you imagine how subnano-scale molecules make an ultrafast rotation at a hundred billion per second? Do the ultrafast rotating subnano-scale molecules show a wave-like nature rather than particle-like behavior? Scientists took sequential ‘snapshots’ of ultrafast unidirectionally rotating molecules at a hundred billion per second to see for themselves.

A company spun out of Alibaba is now worth as much as $50 billion

| July 3, 2015 | 0 Comments



Ant Financial, the online payment service spun out of Alibaba in 2011, just closed a Series A round that reportedly values the company at roughly $50 billion.

The actual amount of the financing was not disclosed, but TechCrunch reports it gives Ant Financial a valuation ranging from $45 billion to $50 billion.

Ant Financial is Alibaba’s finance affiliate, running the payments service Alipay, investment fund Yu’e Bao, and online lending service MYBank. It’s controlled by Alibaba Chairman Jack Ma and has over 1 billion users across all the services it provides.

One of the biggest investors in this round includes the National Social Security Fund (NSSF), China’s largest pension fund, which now holds about a 5% stake in the company.

Ant Financial also plans to go public sometime next year, Bloomberg said in a previous report. Alibaba had its own record-breaking, $25 billion IPO last year.

Alipay is China’s largest online payment service that’s similar to the US’ Paypal. Last year Alipay handled nearly $800 billion in payment volume, while almost 80% of the merchandise value ordered on Alibaba went through its payment processing service.

Early exposure to cat urine makes mice less likely to escape from cats

| July 3, 2015 | 0 Comments




Mice that are exposed to the powerful smell of cat urine early in life do not escape from cats later in life. Researchers have discovered that mice that smell cat urine early in life, do not avoid the same odor, and therefore do not escape from their feline predators, later in life.
