9 Ways How to Grill Like An Argentinian

One of summer’s greatest pleasures is barbecue grilling.

To make the most of your barbecue season, we invite you to discover Argentinian grilling.

Argentina takes beef seriously and they have mastered the art of grilling.

After three months in Argentina on our quest for authentic food, we shared and enjoyed many asados or Argentinian barbecues.

We also dined at several parrillas known as steakhouses where Argentine grilling is front and center.

By observing how Argentinians grill, we learned about the various Argentine grilling techniques and what make them so unique.

To further ground ourselves in the Argentinian grilling culture, we had the pleasure of meeting Francis Mallmann, Argentine celebrity chef.

According to Mallmann, grilling in Argentina isn’t just about the food, it is a ritual and ceremony.

To make your summer grilling remarkable, here are 9 ways to grill like an Argentinian.

Woods, R. – LAR (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Robert Woods, WR, Los Angeles Rams (6/23) Advice: Robert Woods’ past three seasons provide enough evidence that he’ll have a shot at very good stats now that Matthew Stafford will plug into the Rams offense. Routinely settling in as a middle-of-the pack No. 2 receiver in PPR, Woods has averaged at least 8.1 targets per game since 2018 and been the Rams’ leader or near-leader in air yards each year. Getting Stafford is a definite upgrade — Jared Goff became a liability thanks in part to an average completion depth in 2020 of just 4.9 yards. Stafford, meanwhile, has helped push at least one teammate into the top 12 in air yards in each of the past three years. He’s a far more aggressive downfield thrower, something the Rams figure to lean on. That’s good news for Woods. At worst, pencil him in as a No. 2 receiver who should average close to 15 PPR points per game (just as he’s done for the past three seasons), but keep in mind that the quarterback change could kick his stats up a notch. Round 4 isn’t too early to take Woods in PPR, whereas he shouldn’t get touched until early Round 5 in non-PPR. (CBSSports.com)

How The Gaza Violence Marked A Shift In The American Political Debate Over Israel

For decades, Democrats and Republicans alike have stood by Israel, almost unconditionally, insisting the country has a right to defend itself.

President Biden did that throughout the recent conflict as Hamas militants fired thousands of rockets into Israel. Now, Biden has pledged to help replenish Israel’s air defense system while promising humanitarian aid to Gaza, which was pounded by fierce Israeli airstrikes before a cease-fire took effect early Friday.

But this latest violence marked a shift in the American political debate over Israel. The criticism from the left was louder than in the past, with progressives pressuring Biden to speak up forcefully in support of Palestinians, who saw a far greater civilian death toll in recent days.

Kamara, A. – NO (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints (6/23) Advice: Alvin Kamara will once again be an early first-round Fantasy draft pick, but it’s fair to wonder what kind of impact Drew Brees’ retirement might have on his production. A big part of what has made Kamara a bona fide RB1 has been his receiving volume. Brees was quick to check down to Kamara, but typically running QBs (like Taysom Hill) are less likely to do so, and it showed in the games Hill started in 2020. Hill also threatens to potentially steal red zone carries from Kamara. This is no reason to completely downgrade Kamara, whose elite contact balance and elusiveness behind a borderline elite Saints offensive line still makes him a locked-in RB1. However, you might want to hope Jameis Winston ends up starting at QB rather than Hill. (CBSSports.com)

Cooks, B. – Hou (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Brandin Cooks, WR, Houston Texans (6/23) Advice: Cooks proved there’s still plenty left in the tank in 2020, as he mostly stayed healthy and re-emerged as a must-start Fantasy option with the Texans. Cooks won’t even be 28 until after Week 1, and he’s been extremely productive whenever he has been healthy. His history of concussions is obviously a red flag, as is the up-in-the-air status of QB Deshaun Watson, who demanded a trade this offseason and is facing potential discipline from the NFL for off-the-field issues. It would be a lot harder to trust Cooks if Tyrod Taylor was starting for the Texans, but Cooks should still be a starting-caliber option with big weekly upside. Cooks isn’t likely to be drafted as a starter in most leagues, making him an excellent No. 4 WR to target around the 100th pick. (CBSSports.com)

Fantasy Football: Is Chris Carson a sneaky RB1 candidate?

It’s tough to find many NFL players who have overcome the odds better than rising fifth-year RB Chris Carson, who has largely done nothing other than ball the hell out since the Seahawks drafted him in the seventh round of the 2017 draft. While playing 16 games is something that still hasn’t been accomplished, few backs run with the same sort of ferocity that Carson has displayed on a near every-down basis over the years.

Texas lawmakers advance restrictive election bill

Texas lawmakers advanced a restrictive election bill out of a House committee Thursday morning despite major criticism from Democrats, corporations and voting rights advocates.

The legislation would impose criminal penalties for errors during the election process, such as making it a felony for an official to give a voter an absentee ballot application or solicit the submission of an application if the voter does not request it first.

WATCH NICOLAS CAGE EXPLAIN THE HILARIOUS ‘HISTORY OF SWEAR WORDS’

Nicolas Cage hosts History of Swear Words, a pointedly profane new six-episode Netflix series that explores the origins, pop culture-usage, science, and cultural impact of curse words through interviews with experts in etymology, pop culture, historians, and entertainers. The cheeky limited series delves deep into the origins of such beloved curse words as “F**k”, “Sh*t”, “B*tch”, “D**k”, “Pu**y”, and “Damn”.

Supreme Court rejects final Trump bid to nullify 2020 election results

The Supreme Court on Monday denied a bid by former President Trump to nullify his electoral loss in Wisconsin, rejecting the former president’s final pending appeal over the results of the 2020 election.

In an unsigned order without noted dissent, the justices declined to take up Trump’s lawsuit alleging Wisconsin election officials violated the Constitution by expanding absentee voting amid the global coronavirus pandemic.

The justices’ move brought an end to Trump’s scattershot and ineffective legal campaign to overturn President Biden’s victory and added to the abysmal post-election court record of Trump and his allies, which included more than 60 losses and just one narrow win.

House backs commission on Jan. 6 riot over GOP objections

The House voted Wednesday to create an independent commission on the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, sending the legislation to an uncertain future in the Senate as Republican leaders work to stop a bipartisan investigation that is opposed by former President Donald Trump.

Democrats say an independent investigation is crucial to reckoning what happened that day, when a violent mob of Trump’s supporters smashed into the Capitol to try and overturn President Joe Biden’s victory. Modeled after the investigation into the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the legislation would establish an independent, 10-member commission that would make recommendations by the end of the year for securing the Capitol and preventing another insurrection.

Obama called Trump a ‘corrupt motherf—er,’ a ‘racist, sexist pig,’ and a ‘f—ing lunatic,’ a new book reportedly says

After leaving office in 2017, President Barack Obama, known for his affable nature, largely didn’t speak out against his successor, President Donald Trump.

But by the time the 2020 presidential campaign came around, the gloves were off.

With Joe Biden in the throes of a campaign to unseat an incumbent president, Obama made several high-profile campaign appearances for his former vice president where he slammed Trump.

He also voiced plenty of R-rated criticism of Trump behind the scenes, according to “Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Donald Trump,” a new book by Edward-Isaac Dovere, a staff writer at The Atlantic. The Guardian on Wednesday reported on excerpts from the book, set to be released next week.

5 major investigations into Donald Trump and his businesses, explained

The announcement by New York Attorney General Letitia James on Tuesday night that her office’s probe into The Trump Organization has evolved from a purely civil one to add a criminal investigation is a good reminder of the various legal entanglements facing former President Donald Trump as he works to keep control of the Republican Party and mulls a 2024 presidential re-run.

Although James’ office didn’t elaborate on what specifically led her office to make the investigation criminal, CNN legal analyst Elliot Williams offered this take on the move — and what it has to do with the ongoing investigation into the Trump organization by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance — in an interview on “New Day” Wednesday:

Gunstock Ranch

My sister and I went to Oahu to visit my brother and his wife. We decided we wanted to do a horseback riding tour and I’m sooooo glad I found Gunstock Ranch. We booked the sunset time mountain ride and it was beautiful. Reservation was easy, checking in was a breeze, and surprisingly, only our family was part of the group so great for Covid times. Hannah was our guide and she was great! She was so nice, engaging, and considerate for the slower horses.
Gunstock Ranch has great prices, awesome staff, amazing views, and beautiful horses. Highly recommend!

Jeudy, J. – Den (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Jerry Jeudy, WR, Denver Broncos (6/23) Advice: There will be at least one Fantasy manager in every draft who will ignore what happened in 2020 and want Jerry Jeudy on their roster. That’s because the former ballyhooed prospect remains loaded with potential despite a cratered rookie season that included 12 drops (second-most in NFL), a 46% catch rate (third-worst among qualifying players) and just 3.3 receptions per game. The silver lining? Jeudy ranked sixth among wideouts with 1,529 air yards, sixth in receiving average with 16.5, and 19th with 5.46 yards after catch per reception. To reach his ceiling, Jeudy will have to outplay all of his teammates, including Courtland Sutton, and put up big numbers with the Broncos’ inferior quarterbacks. It seems like the odds are against him, which is why anyone who does target him must do so after 75th overall on Draft Day — perhaps higher only in long-term formats. (CBSSports.com)
