the best food you're not eating in san francisco (but should be)

(Image credit: John Lee)
San Francisco is one of the most exciting food cities in the United States. If you've made the trip, chances are you've filled your belly with everything from clam chowder in a sourdough bowl and Zuni Cafe's roast chicken to horchata bubble tea and toast slathered with homemade preserves at The Mill. Maybe you've even ventured across the Bay to Oakland, which is quietly gaining a reputation as a serious food destination. (Perhaps even better than San Francisco?)
But, there's one regional cuisine you probably haven't tried. I'm talking about Burmese food. As it turns out, San Francisco is home to the largest Burmese population outside of Burma.
What is Burmese food, you might ask? And where should you go for your fix? We asked Desmond Tan, owner of Burma Superst

burma: landmines deadly for fleeing rohingya - myanmar

Military Lays Internationally Banned Weapon(New York) – Burmese security forces have laid landmines during attacks on villages and along the Bangladesh border, posing a grave risk to Rohingya Muslims fleeing atrocities, Human Rights Watch said today. The Burmese government should immediately stop using antipersonnel landmines and join the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty.“The dangers faced by thousands of Rohingya fleeing atrocities in Burma are deadly enough without adding landmines to the mix,” said Meenakshi Ganguly, South Asia director. “The Burmese military needs to stop using these banned weapons, which kill and maim without distinction.”According to witness accounts, independent reporting, and photo and video recordings, Burmese soldiers have in recent weeks laid antipersonnel landmines at key

canberra and wollongong rule out a-league super bid through joint venture

Canberra and Wollongong have ruled out combining their A-League expansion efforts to form a super-bid, with each party adamant their proposals are strong enough to stand alone.The groups said they would happily provide elite pathways for the other, but refused the idea of a joint venture with neither willing to compromise on having an A-League franchise in their city.

tropical tree roots represent an underappreciated carbon pool

Ask someone to draw a tree and s/he will invariably draw a trunk and branches—leaving the roots out of the picture. In a unique study of tropical tree roots at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute published in PLOS ONE, roots accounted for almost 30 percent of the total biomass of young trees. The authors hope that future estimates of carbon storage and water-use by tropical forests will include information on root biomass and architecture.

un says 87,000 refugees arrive in bangladesh from myanmar

A total of 87,000 mostly Rohingya refugees have arrived in Bangladesh since violence erupted in neighbouring Myanmar on August 25, the United Nations said on Monday, amid growing international criticism of Burmese politician Aung San Suu Kyi. Thousands of the stateless Muslim minority have fled the mainly Buddhist nation and poured over the border since the latest round of fighting broke out, piling pressure on the already overcrowded camps in Bangladesh.Around 20,000 more were massed on the border between Bangladesh and Myanmar's western state of Rakhine and waiting to enter, the UN said in a report.Dhaka had stepped up border controls after the latest round of violence began 10 days ago, but the UN said recent arrivals reported there had been no attempt to stop them from crossing.One Ban

a better dye job for roots—in plants

Once we start coloring our hair, we may be surprised to learn that we begin to have a problem in common with plant biologists: finding the right dye for our roots. In the case of the biologists, just the right chemical is needed to measure exactly how plant roots grow. Now, a researcher at the Salk Institute has discovered a fluorescent dye that, paired with other imaging techniques, reveals root growth to be influenced by a major plant hormone more than previously thought.

lahpet: a delicious crash-course in burmese food

In a foreign land a good guide can be worth their weight in gold - a fact that is just as true when trying out new cuisines closer to home.Luckily for those visiting Lahpet, London's newest Burmese offering, co-owner Dan Anton is more than happy to lead you through the delights of this lesser-known fare.Myanmar or Burma as it was once known, is one of the last prominent Asian countries with a rich and diverse culinary heritage that remains largely untapped in the Western world.The country borders Bangladesh, Thailand and China, and its cuisine taking influences from all three. Anton believes the reason so few Brits have had any interaction with Burmese cuisine is simply due to the relative lack of Burmese migration over the years. But it's clear with Lahpet he's aiming to make the food and

presstv-germany, egypt agree to cut flow of refugees

Germany and Egypt have agreed on a plan to reduce the flow of refugees and asylum seekers to Europe, as part of Berlin’s wider push to curb the stream of illegal and unchecked immigration to the European country, the refugees’ ideal destination.The agreement was reached on Sunday during a meeting of Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry with his German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel in Berlin, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert announced in a statement on Monday.Seibert added that according to the new accord, Berlin would provide Cairo with more resources to run training programs to assist Egyptian people in finding better jobs, and more funds for them to study in the European country.  The statement further said that Germany would also help Cairo to improve conditions of facilities

presstv-‘plight of rohingya children caught in pictures’

The Myanmarese army is under more pressure over its brutalities against Rohingya Muslims after fresh images emerged reportedly showing refugees from the minority group with wounds and burns sustained during a military crackdown.The pictures, seen by The Guardian, depict Rohingya refugees, among them children, with severed limbs, disfigured faces, slashed bodies and machete-inflicted head wounds apparently sustained during a Myanmarese army’s crackdown.The photos, obtained by the Burmese Rohingya Organization of the UK, a London-based advocacy group, strengthen reports that Myanmar’s military committed serious abuses against the ethnic minority during a military campaign in Rakhine State that ended this year.A United Nation report that included interviews with hundreds of Rohingya refugees,

jimmy fallon, migos, the roots play bad and boujee video

If you're in need of a little workplace inspiration, take a cue from Jimmy Fallon and the Roots who took a break from the mundane in their office space to help Migos perform a quick rendition of their hit song "Bad and Boujee."In the Tonight Show segment, Fallon uses iPhone tones to create a beat for the track, while the Roots resourcefully use office supplies like a stapler and scotch tape as makeshift sound effects, while the Migos rapped their signature song. This isn't the first time that Fallon's used office supplies to create some beautiful music — he and the Roots took to the office before with Christina Aguilera to sing her song "Your Body."Watch the full clip above.

the roots at sxsw: t.i., rae sremmurd, brandy & more perform

“I’m so confused where I am right now. Am I on the same stage as the Roots?” roots rocker Shakey Graves asked the packed and sweaty house at The Roots & Friends jam at South By Southwest on Saturday night (March 18). “You guys ready for a nice, country-themed waltz -- with the Roots?”It was actually only two of the Roots -- drummer Questlove and bassist Mark Kelley -- but Graves’ point was well-taken. In just its second year of the SXSW closing-night spectacle, the hip-hop stalwarts and Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon band turned things up -- and on their side a bit. The show changed locations, to the 800 Congress building, where crowds were lined up for blocks before doors opened, with many remaining in line throughout the nearly four-hour show in (mostly futile) hopes of getting in.It  wa
