Indian Researcher Creates Edible Spoons and Forks

http://mashable.com/2016/03/26/edible-spoon-bakeys/#YBc2puI.okqt

What if we could eat our spoons and forks instead of washing them or using disposable plastic ones? Well, this idea is now a reality with Bakey’s edible cutlery.

Narayana Peesapaty, a researcher and agriculture consultant from India, once thought of creating edible cutlery as he was already tired of the fact that billions of plastic spoons are polluting India’s landfills every year. So in 2010, he developed an edible spoon from millet, rice and wheat flours. He has already sold 1.5 million edible spoons through his company, Bakeys, and he wants to produce more at a cheaper price.

Plastic is very cheap, true. But I can make it as cheap. I can with volumes, and once I get the volumes, I [can go to] the farmers directly and start procuring raw material directly from the farmers, in which case my spoons will be as cheap as the plastic spoons.

But there’s more to these edible cutleries. They are also highly nutritious and environment friendly. They also come in different flavors as well.

You can eat it up. If you don’t want to eat it, you can throw it. It decomposes within four to five days.

Aside from the goal of making the edible cutleries as cheap as plastic, Peesapaty would also like to create and expand a whole new line of edible tableware like disposable cups, plates, and other tableware. They now currently have molds to produce chopsticks, dessert spoons, and forks, as well.

As of this writing, Bakeys already has 2,856 backers and $88,529 pledges from their $20,000 goal at Kickstarter, a crowdfunding website, and has listed in the website that a new facility that can produce 800,000 spoons a day is in the works. They also plan to produce and distribute other tableware within three months.

The Edible Spoon Maker, a device that can create edible spoons, is also on Kickstarter. It could create edible spoons out of any kind of dough. It was created by Anatoliy Omelchenko, founder of The Triangle Tree, a company that conceptualizes, brainstorms, prototypes and patents new innovative products based in Greater New York City Area.

Friends ‘Ride’ Invisible Car to Order Food at Jollibee Drive Thru

Published

A number of fast food outlets have a drive thru for the convenience of those who just want to order a quick takeout meal. The premise of ordering via the drive thru is that you have a vehicle.

What happens if you don’t have a vehicle but the lines at the counter inside the store are too long and the drive thru window has fewer customers?

Well, a group of friends had this rather genius idea of ‘riding’ an invisible car so they can order food at the Jollibee drive thru because the queues inside the store were long.

Laughing at their own crazy antics, the group positioned themselves in a manner that people would normally take if they were riding a car. They were standing, of course, but the designated ‘driver’ made sure to drive them carefully towards the important stops at the drive through – and he didn’t forget to ‘release the hand brake’ before moving forward to the counter.

It was really so hilarious to see these guys ‘riding’ their invisible car that the crew at the counter couldn’t help but laugh. They’re so crazy, right? LOL. But the crew played along, accepting the guys’ orders, still laughing at their silliness.

After their order was taken, the group continued towards the claim area without breaking their position. The crew at this counter also laughed at the guys, even gamely giving the ‘driver’ a fist bump.

They continued towards the exit in the same position, Giving each other high fives, knowing they got their way and were able to order much faster than the customers inside the store. Clever trick, isn’t it?

But the guys did not just trick the Jollibee crew, they had also become famous on Facebook. Less than 24 hours after the video was posted, the video has garnered close to 1 million views!

So, this female Takoyaki business owner, Yukio, took an initiative to level up her business! She used her charm and of course, her natural takoyaki slipping skills.

Osaka is home to anime lovers. And because of this, Yukio changes up her look while flipping Takoyaki in her food stall called Goonies. This magnetizes people to watch her and eventually buy some of her good Goonies.

We often see children playing on streets, unattended by their parents. We tend to consider them homeless as they spend the whole day asking for food from passersby. Considering that they aren’t home and not with their parents means they are not properly taken care of. And it sometimes breaks our heart knowing that innocent young kids experience such.

Parenting is a big responsibility. With the growing population in our country, a man opens an awareness and hits us with reality about having so many kids.

Shaun Manzo

Shaun Manzo, the policeman who shares his experience on how he bumped into a playful kid who stays often in the busy streets of Boni, Mandaluyong. He started his post with a disclaimer, not to brag but to just open awareness to parents to refrain from having kids more than they can take care of. Mazo said that every child deserves to be loved and be taken care of.

For Info: Pinost ko to dahil hindi sa gusto ko magpasikat or kumuha ng simpatya ng mga tao pinost ko to dahil gusto ko kase makita ng buong mundo na marami nang napapabayaan na mga bata at pakalat-kalat lang sa kalsada dahil sa kapabayaan ng mga magulang.☹️I want to share to all of you guys lalo na sa mga magulang na sana naman po kung gagawa kayo ng mga bata please po alagaan niyo naman po sila ng maayos at gampanan ang mga responsibilidad sa kanila they deserve to be loved and syempre guidance ninyo.🤭

Diego

According to Shaun, his heart breaks for the kid who he always sees roaming around his assignment area in Boni Mandaluyong. He usually spots the kid wearing no clothes and slippers. Shaun often sees the kid roaming around McDo near Boni MRT. One time, he asked the kid which food he wants to eat in McDonald’s. The kid then points his fingers at a toy. Right there and then, Mazo ordered a happy meal for the kid.

Shaun generously bought the happy meal for the street kid. On the pictures uploaded, the kiddo looks happy with a full tummy and a toy. The kid, a little bit shy, gave thanks to the generous policeman. Mazo felt teary-eyed and filled with joy at that time. He also shared that customers in McDonald’s oftentimes give extra food to Diego. The 3-year old young kid gives happiness to those people around the area.

Mazo found out that Diego lives around Boni area and they are 9 kids in the family. He gave a pet name to the kid by calling him “Diego” (pertaining to a character in Dora the Explorer). Being far away from family, he found a friend in Diego. The kid sometimes calls him “Papa.” According to Shaun, the kid reminds him of his nephew whom he misses already. Diego, despite not given with proper needs from parents, stays cheerful and smart.
