Get Ready For Hybrid Vegetables

The world may see a boost in hybrid vegetables. Even though there are thousands of different fruits and vegetables around the world, in investigators at Kendall College which is hospital college and horticultural college have been doing experiments with breeding vegetables. They have been able to successfully create new vegetables such as rainbow carrots and broccoflower . These are mixes between two different vegetables and they create entirely new hybrid vegetables. My friend Bruce Levenson says they look like alien vegetables!

Research has shown that many people actually enjoy eating these hybrid vegetables, because they are blended in a way that makes the vegetables have something good from each vegetable that it was taken from. In some cases the vegetable may be more palatable, and in other cases the vegetable may have a better texture. Whatever the case maybe it is possible that these vegetables will become more available in 2015.

With all of the haype about GMO’s, and other genetic modification some people may be afraid of these hybrid vegetables thinking that they have some kind of hormonal or chemical change. In reality that is not the case at all, because these vegetables have been breaded much like a dog is breaded, it is just crossed mixing vegetables and it does nothing to the vegetables are not hormonal, or chemical level. Since that is the case many people might be interested in trying these new vegetable varieties, and they may be surprised that they actually like the taste.

Nicki Minaj Impersonates Beyonce

In a serious effort to promote the new “PinkPrint” album, Nicki Minaj was in rare form on Saturday Night Live over the weekend. It definitely distracted me from my Qnet shopping. She performed 3 songs and appeared in a variety of different sketches. Her most talked about impersonation was that of Beyonce. It is what people are talking about at the water cooler after the work week starts up again. 

It may have been extra easy for Nicki Minaj to mimic Beyonce because she has worked with the star. Before the “Flawless” remix it was obvious that Nicki was a big fan of Beyonce. There is no doubt that she studied Beyonce on and off stage. This is what allowed Nicki to bring forth such a spot-on impression of the pop superstar. 

Nicki also did a Kim Kardashian impression, but more people are raving about her Beyonce voice more than anything else. People that have listened to Beyonce off stage are keenly aware of how mellow she is. It also seems unbelievable to think that the same powerhouse singer that delivers with so much intensity is so subdued off stage. She appears to be something of a split personality that has this sort of power that she can unleash at will while on stage. Nicki channeled this calm side of Beyonce. 

It really is the year of Nicki Minaj. Her performance on the show went well and this leads to greater exposure.
