Dry-Aged Steak News: What’s New with Dry-Aged Beef?

Steak news is something that most Americans have not been keeping up with, mainly because they tend to focus on chicken and pork. The beef industry however has been growing in recent years and the fact that there are hundreds of different types of beef cuts available only serves to fuel demand. There is also a great amount of controversy over the treatment of animals used for beef manufacturing. Most consumers have very little understanding about how the beef industry works and what their role is. This is not an easy task when you consider the amount of beef products that are sold in America each and every day.

The beef industry is one of the most important players in the meat industry. There is so much riding on the decision of where the cattle were born, raised and slaughtered as well as the way that they were killed. Cattle farming is a crucial part of the American economy and without farmers there would not be beef, dairy, poultry and even eggs available. In fact the meat industry is the largest employer in the state of Mississippi.

What is the difference between a forest and a jungle?

There are many ways to describe the difference between these two habitats but, let’s take a look of some the definitions and characteristics that sets them apart.

A forest has lots of tall trees and can usually be walked through by humans. A Jungle is literally a tangled or overgrown mass of vegetation over a large area of land. Normally a jungle has a tropical or humid climate and many plants on the ground between trees and larger plants.

Components of a Forest:

The components of the forest can be broadly divided into two categories: biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living). The living components include trees, shrubs, vines, grasses and other herbaceous (non-woody) plants, mosses, algae, fungi, insects, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and microorganisms living on the plants and animals and in the soil. The abiotic (non-living) factors include soil, minerals, rocks and water. But abiotic factors can be intangible, such as temperature, other types of radiation and the chemistry of soil and water.

Ugly Christmas Sweaters don’t sell well during Summer


In response to the Ugly Christmas Sweater phenomenon, companies have emerged to try and cash in on the phenomenon.  Once the realm of hipsters, old people with no fashion sense, and children forced to wear the ugly sweater grandma or grandpa bought them, the ugly Christmas sweater phenomenon has become a staple in holiday fashion.

A few companies decided to try and make a year-round go of the phenomenon and all have failed.  In a recent interview Jason Bruntsworth from Bruntsworth Retailer Inc (which recently filed for Chapter 11) tells us:

We figured since they was selling so well in Christmas we could sell em year round.  For example, we looked at the numbers some companies were doing in December and figured we could do 12 times that amount by selling Ugly Christmas Sweaters all year round.  So we opened a store in April.  Since then we’ve sold maybe 4 sweaters.  I don’t understand!  I think maybe we must be in another recession or something.

Other “summer sweater” companies reported similarly dismal results.
