Healthy at last, DeMarcus Cousins stoked to be with Rockets

For all it took to get here, all the pain endured and patience tested, DeMarcus Cousins can at last celebrate a simple fact.

“Man,” he said Thursday, “I feel incredible.”

It was a long time coming, from the Achilles injury with the Pelicans, the quad injury with the Warriors, the knee injury with the Lakers, and all the rehab it took to the daily workouts that have turned heads at Toyota Center since Cousins signed with the Rockets as a free agent.

The road back was grueling for the four-time All-Star and is certainly not complete. Cousins has played just 30 games in nearly two seasons since suffering his Achilles injury against the Rockets in January 2019. He did not play at all last season, having injured his ACL in an August 2019 pickup game after signing with the Lakers.

But with all that it took to come this far,

High demand for healthy Christmas tree crop | Business News

Christmas tree sales

Kate and Connor Emmel, of Madison, shop for a pre-cut Christmas tree at Hann’s Christmas Farm in the town Oregon. Customers can also choose to cut their own tree.

Greg Hann’s father planted his first tree in the town of Oregon in 1968. The 50-acre Hann’s Christmas Farm on Tipperary Road now has 48,000 trees that are sold to families who come to buy one already cut or hike the property to pick and cut their own. Hann, who purchased the business in 2000, said the weekends before and after Thanksgiving brought in droves of customers eager for a tree and who also took advantage of ideal weather. Many of his customers haven’t had a live tree for years but want more of an experience this year amid the pandemic.

“”It’s not specifically ‘oh we need a live tree,'” Hann said. “It’s all the memories and

Etsy Can Stay Healthy Without Face Masks

Etsy seems to have cornered 2020’s key fashion accessory.

The company generated more than $600 million in gross merchandise sales on face masks alone in the second and third quarters, helping its share price more than triple this year. So what happens when mask sales, which are already on the decline, go away? Early holiday sales data are encouraging, suggesting Etsy could continue to climb, buoyed by more-sustainable categories and a defensible business model.

In its third-quarter report, Etsy said masks’ percentage of gross merchandise sales had dropped to 11%. It cited a steady monthly deceleration, expecting mask sales to be substantially lower in the fourth quarter compared with a quarter earlier.

Still, data from Edison Trends show that Etsy expanded online customer spending on Cyber Monday by 73% year-over-year—well ahead of top retailers such as Target and Amazon , at 43% and 19%, respectively.

MBABANE, Dec 3 2020 (IPS) – As the world accelerates towards achieving the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, it is time to replace the current broken food system. With only a decade left to reach the deadline, evidence shows that the way food is produced, processed and transported is not only destructive to the environment but it is also leaving millions behind.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) The State of Food and Nutrition in the World 2019 report, over 820 million people across

Healthy alternatives helping to re-imagine cuisine

While many find the taste of traditional soul food like fried chicken, catfish and grits enticing, when these foods are not consumed in moderation, like anything else, they can pose health risks.

Chef Marcus Samuelsson’s shrimp curry with sweet potatoes and swiss chard, made in October 2020 during cook-a-long, showcasing the versatility and nuances of Black cuisine. “One of the most important things for me was to show that Black food is not monolithic it’s highly layered,” Samuelsson said.

But soul food as a sector of cuisine is not unhealthy, said Marcus Samuelsson, the award-winning chef and food activist, and the founder and owner of Red Rooster in Harlem, Marcus B&P in Newark, and NoHu Rooftop in Weehawken, and author of “The Rise: Black Cooks and the Soul of American Food.”

“We have so many healthy foods in our communities,” Samuelsson said.
