nitrogen and horchata mix at michael voltaggio's latest restaurant – la times


imagine a plate at the new ink.well, a heavy one whose steeply curved lip is high enough to ensure that a haphazardly placed fork balanced on it slides right down into its contents. the plate's surface is paved with a thin layer of mexican-chocolate ganache painted over a macadam of cookie crumbs. there are snowdrifts of the mexican rice drink horchata quick-blasted with liquid nitrogen and shattered into frozen pebbles. humps of a softer ganache, made with caramelized white chocolate and striped with hibiscus-flower syrup, peek from the rubble, like plump caterpillars. the plate arrives at the table enshrouded in pale mist.it is amusing to bite down on the horchata pebbles — thick smoke may erupt from your nose. you become emboldened and chew a big spoonful all at once. you experience wha

nitrogen tug-of-war reveals earth's biogeochemistry


an enrichment of "heavy" nitrogen in earth’s atmosphere has been found to represent the balance between biogeochemical and atmospheric production of nitrogen, a signal that one day could potentially be used to suggest the presence of biogeochemistry on other planets, too. nitrogen in the atmosphere is predominantly in the form of molecular nitrogen (n2), made of two atoms of nitrogen-14. there also exists a small quantity of the heavier nitrogen-15 isotope (an atom of nitrogen with an extra neutron) and, on rare occasions, two nitrogen-15 atoms can bond together to form a nitrogen molecule known as 15n15n. however, 15n15n shares a nearly identical atomic mass with nitric oxide — the difference is a mere two one-thousandths of the mass of a neutron — posing a challenge to efforts to measure

today's farmers are trying to achieve 'sustainability,' but it's easier said tha


what does a sustainable farm look like? that’s the question this npr article asked yesterday. reporter dan charles considers the impact of a new sustainability program called sustain, which seeks to reduce the amounts of nitrogen fertilizer that corn farmers use on their fields.nitrogen is considered “the essential ingredient for growing corn and most other crops,” he writes. “farmers around here spread it on their fields by the truckload.” but that nitrogen can significantly harm soil, water, and local ecology:the problems with nitrogen fertilizer start at its creation, which involves burning lots of fossil fuels. then, when farmers spread it on their fields, it tends not to stay where it belongs. rainfall washes some of it into streams and lakes, and bacteria in the soil feed on what’s l

one of the keys to a memorable dining experience is good seating, which is why many restaurateurs and designers in los angeles turn to amsterdam modern for a solution. if you’ve ever dined in beachwood café, gjelina or visited ace hotels, chances are you’ve sat in chairs that have come through the furniture purveyor’s 10,000-square-foot warehouse. located in historic filipinotown just west of downtown los angeles, amsterdam modern began when ellen lecomte became enamored of midcentury dutch design.“i stumbled into this whole business,” says lecomte, who opened her doors in 2009. “i just thought dutch design was crazy cool and different.” apart from chairs, the shop also carries lighting, tables and storage solutions of dutch design.designers such as cliff fong, barbara bestor and commune d
