Don't Shrink! How To Cook Burgers

You know how burgers shrink when you cook them? Instead of these perfect-round shaped patties that you crafted yourself, they become these awkward, small, patties. Where did the meat go!? Yeah, well they don't have to shrink.
To avoid your burger from shrinking, all you need to do is make a hole in the burger patty before setting it to cook.
When you create a hole in your burger, it will keep your burger flat while it's cooking. The hole doesn't need to be large -- it should be the size of a quarter. I am not sure of the science behind it, but it works!
Who's making me a burger?

COVID-19 Impact on Healthy Food | Food and Beverage Industry | Data Bridge Market Research
COVID-19 Impact on Crude Oil in the Chemical and Materials Industry In crude oil market, every manufacturer expected a huge crisis due to the pandemic created by the COVID-19 all over the world. COVID-19 widely impacted the demand and price of crude oil globally. The price of the crude price has been fall below USD 10 per barrel. Due to the pandemic it is very difficult for the oil importing and exporting nations such as India, the U.S. and China to recover from the COVID-19 effect but the oil exporting nations will go bankrupt if this scenario will remain continue. Due to the crisis the crude oil industry entered into a very turbulent phase. Oil importing nations can take the benefits of low oil price whereas the oil manufacturing and exporting nations will have to find other alternatives to generate the profit margin. As per the report of Energy Institute of Haas, the prices of crude oil prices have been fallen nearly 40% due to the reduction or delay in various projects. For instance, In May 2020, Petrofac Ltd announced the delays in their new oil projects until 2021 due to the pandemic situation and the disruptions in the supply chain. In April 2020, The Kuwait National Petroleum Co. (KNPC) announced that their new project of Al-Ahmadi oil refinery has been halted as many of their employees and workers have been tested positive for Coronavirus. The aviation and transportation industries accounts for approximately 11.0% share of the total crude oil sector and the entire sector is the second major consumer of global crude oil demand. According to the report published by EIA, jet fuel consumption declined by 540,000 barrel per day to 1.2 million barrel per day in 2020 from 2019 average. The average consumption will rise in 2021 and averages 1.5 million barrel per day will be consumed, remaining less than the 2019 consumption level of 1.7 million barrel per day. The restriction in the movement from place to another will widely affect the crude oil market. According to the International Energy Agency, the crude oil demand in 2020 is expected to reach 90,000 barrel per day which is decline from 2019, from its previous estimate of about a 1 million barrel per day. If the situation will remain same there will a strong chances that many oil manufacturers will become bankrupt. To save themselves from this situation many manufacturers and also some politicians, are arguing that the federal government must subsidize the oil manufacturers through low-interest loans or they can also reduce the drilling royalties. Consumption of the U.S. liquid fuels fell in early 2020 as a result of reduced travel because of COVID-19 and associated mitigation measures. Consumption of liquid fuels in the United States reached its low point in April at an average of 14.7 million barrels per day (b/d), down 5.4 million b/d from April 2019. As per the report published by Reserve Bank of India, the GDP of the country fell down on a wider range due to the COVID-19 crisis. Since, India is the major importer of oil which is approximately 80% from other countries and the lowering of oil prices will reduce the CAD for the economy. The current savings in CAD amount can be further used to support the country financing to deal with the tragic situation. In the U.S., more than 600,000 barrels per day in production cuts have been generated follow with Canada 300,000 bpd of shut-ins and Brazil’s has reduced output by 200,000 bpd. COVID-19 pandemics has been widely impacted the global economy. For instance, Oil prices in the U.S. went below zero in April 2020. Most of the oil manufacturing companies halted production. Due to the restriction in travelling and lockdown billion of peoples stay back in their home which will decline the demand of oil and gas and reduce the overall revenue. Due to the situation the industry is considering resorting to burning their oil and also closing their oil wells inset to take it off the market. For instance, Harold Hamm’s Continental Resources Inc (CLR.N) shut down their oil wells and the company officially announced that they will not further deliver the crude to the customers due to poor economics. Chevron Corp announced that they were closing their operation at Venezuela due to the economic crisis. COMPANIES INITIATIVES DURING COVID-19 Falling crude oil price has already created enough distress among the countries globally. Oil manufacturers are adopting new technologies and taking new initiatives to convert this pandemic into their favor. According to the ONGC, with the trouble situation and imposition of lockdown, onshore and offshore operations have been widely hampered. However, in April, 2020, the onshore drilling operations have been restarted in many places. The U.S., Germany and other developed countries are reducing the expenditure in energy. For instance, every reduction of USD 4 in commodity prices can lead to the USD 5 billion in import bill savings for India, and that saving can be reutilized and reinvested in the new technologies to generate new profit margin. By implementing various strategies such as growing production capacity, new product releases, product availability, the manufacturers aim to achieve optimum market growth and the stressful situation in their favor.

Thus, governments across the globe have focused on encouraging athletes to maintain their health through proper intake of healthy food supplements. Major of local and international competition, such as European Football Championship and the Olympic Games in Tokyo has postponed for a year as health of coaches and athletes is the first priority of government. Hence, governments are focusing on maintaining health of sports persons by providing them proper nutritional intake in isolation. Pandemic also impacted on consciousness regarding the health. Thus, awareness regarding physical and mental health has been increased which provides the demand to the nutritional products. Sports nutrition products are manufactured to achieve fitness goals and to fulfill nutrients which depleted during the workout. They also include energy bars, sports drinks and protein powder. Manufacturers of sports nutrition prefer vegetable proteins, meat and dairy source as raw material for sports nutritional products. Owing to this COVID-19, health conscious people and sports persons are staying at home providing demand for healthy supplements and related products for maintaining fitness has been raised. According to online shopping portal of sports and fitness products NorthAlp, it has been noticed an increase of 300% in sales of the fitness related products in India. During the lockdown, NorthAlp has witnessed raised sales of fitness related products. Another factor behind the rise in online sales of fitness goods and brands is the growing acceptance of virtual exercise workouts with certified instructors and coaches. As gyms and fitness facilities are remaining closed owing to the lockdown, consumers are now more prone towards nutritional supplements to cater general wellness. The products for nutritional products are catering demand to maintaining health. Ingredients that enhance health and immunity are gaining demand as these ingredients are essential for muscle health and well-being of health. Among all sports nutritional products, protein powder is the leading ingredient of the sports nutrition market. According to Lallemand Health Solutions, 70% of consumers are being more concerned in sports nutrition as they are effective source of probiotics as well. Further, e-commerce is playing essential role for providing sports nutrition. For instance, According to “Nutrition Business Journal's 2020 Supplement Business Report,” the demand for nutritional supplement has been grown as they are expected to grow at 61.4% in 2020. Further, online sales are expected to reach USD 10.00 million in 2023 in which online sales of nutritional supplements will acquire 19.6% of sales by 2023. According to Aerometric Sports Products Pvt. Ltd., whey protein and other sports drinks such as glucose water has provided demand for sports nutrition across the world. Globally, sports nutrition is around USD 20.00 to 25.00 billion. Owing to the pandemic, sports nutritional products manufacturers and producers are prioritizing health and safety over productivity and profitability. They are looking for specialty vegan protein as they become more aware of techniques and strategies to manage the health. The pandemic has provided an opportunity for nutritional manufacturers to show their assurance to their customers by delivering customized support, representing their reliability and consistency as suppliers and augmenting their company’s biosecurity efforts across the board. For instance, · In August 2020, Hormel’s Ingredient Solutions has launched a new website for full catalog of protein ingredients. The new website makes help to view a product’s ingredients, packaging and shelf life. Further, this allows customers to quickly request samples and explore products, more about the ingredient solutions team and speak with an expert on the team. Hence, as shift towards healthy food is increasing, the demand for sports nutrition has been impacted in better terms. INITIATIVES Outbreak of coronavirus has affected every sector in the food services industry including sports nutrition. The industry has affected as the supply and demand are badly disrupted. For instance, · In April 2020, Cargill, Incorporated has started working by following safety practices at site including additional precautions at manufacturing facility, including temperature testing and prohibiting international travelling among others. However, with the increased demand for the healthy essential products, the manufacturers are taking new initiatives for products availability. Increased demand for protein bars, supplements, and energy drinks among athletes, bodybuilders, and even weekend warriors was one of the major factors in that growth,” she adds, pointing to findings that rising disposable incomes, urbanization, and the sheer building boom in gyms and fitness centers gave further cause to be bullish on the category. · McNamara “When your account for all the categories that have been subsumed into sports nutrition,” he says, “it’s a huge market. Diversification into weight management, athletic performance, energy, and even cognitive performance has transformed it from a niche category targeting gym goers to a broader consumer base looking to fuel their active lifestyles. And that’s a good thing, it has built a strong category.” - Brian Appell, Director, Global Communications, OmniActive Health Technologies (Morristown, NJ) “An economic crisis could impact categories that consumers consider non-essential, including products that are more lifestyle-targeted and not developed to aid serious health issues. The latter is, of course, subjective and for each consumer to decide, but we expect products addressing various deficiencies, pain management, diabetes, stress, cardiovascular health, or prenatal supplements to be less affected, to name a few.” · Mike Hughes, Head of Research and Insights, FMCG Gurus “Sports nutrition is a product category that may take a short-term hit as a result of COVID-19. This is because consumers who regularly go to the gym are being forced to adjust the way that they exercise due to restrictions, whilst everyday consumers may swap better-for-you snacks for traditional, comfort-orientated snacks. Consumers will not neglect other areas of their health due to COVID-19. For instance, many are recognizing that the virus is having an impact on their mental wellbeing and resulting in issues such as weight gain, something that they want to address. This means that they will pay closer attention to product claims whilst also assessing if an increase in ingredients such as protein and vitamin D can be obtained from everyday food and drink products.” · George Kuriakose, Head of Operations, Anaha LifeCare “In India and across the world, predominantly whey protein and some form of sports drink such as glucose water has been the prevalent form of nutrition. Today as we evolve, there are different forms of nutrition that are helping the athletes perform better every day and this is the way sports nutrition will evolve.” · Vijayaraghavan Venugopal, CEO of Aeronutrix Sports Products Pvt. Ltd., “We created a pay protection program providing paid leave and benefits to any team member who was feeling unwell, quarantined due to close contact or who tested positive. The first 15 days of coronavirus-related absences are covered at 100% of base pay and if needed, subsequent days of leaves are covered at our regular short-term disability coverage pay percentages with no limit. This pay program has been instrumental in our ability to keep our team members safe. We have been proactive in communicating often to ensure they know that it is okay, and encouraged, to stay at home when feeling unwell or if they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. If someone doesn’t feel well, there is no financial hardship to stay home. Our efforts exceed the CDC and OSHA guidelines.” · Hormel Foods Corporation. CONCLUSION As the effects of COVID-19 are felt around the world, sports nutrition manufacturers have been significantly impacted by raised consumption and awareness regarding health. However, regulatory norms around social distancing across multiple nations, reduced social gatherings were estimated to impact the meat substitutes and vegetable protein to a high extent. However, sports nutrition manufacturers have been seeing a stable sale in their products and hence stability in demand during the coming months of the fiscal year. Sports nutrition is one of the major consumer health products demanded by health conscious people, athletes and sports person who has raised the sales of protein powder, health drinks and other healthy supplements owing to impacting wellbeing of health. There have been vast changes in the consumption pattern among pet food which are particularly “at-home” has been gaining popularity. Though, there has been a stable growth in demand for sports nutritional products, the purchasing behavior among consumers have greatly disrupted the distribution channels for these products. Also, owing to the COVID-19 outbreak, there has been an increasing awareness among sports person, on healthy diet wherein, the demand for healthy ingredients in diet has been on a rise. Protein, vitamin and other essential ingredients in sports nutritional products is expected to grow substantially during the coming years, with the rising awareness.

How Many Cups Are in a Liter: A Complete Guide to Measuring
How many cups are in a liter? We'll answer this question and help you master accurate measurement, so you never miss a recipe again. Cooking can seem easy, especially for those who don't do it themselves. It seems like you need to read the recipe, follow a few simple instructions, and that's it. So how come so many people fail? I will tell you a secret. It is not so easy to know how many cups in a liter. You can have the best recipe in your hands and still end up with a messy kitchen and your food in a trash can. Why is that? Many things can go wrong, but today I will deal with the measurement problems. Let us paint the picture - you found a great recipe online, read the reviews, and made sure it turned out great. Unfortunately, there is an issue: the recipe lists measurements that you are not familiar with, for example, cups instead of milliliters. In such situations, the US, imperial, and metric conversion tables are helpful as they direct you and assist you with setting up the formula the correct way. Or you can choose not to participate in another conversion calculator app. Very often, recipes call for cups of water or milk. In contrast, other recipes require you to measure your liquid ingredients in milliliters and liters. How many cups in a liter? We all know that recipes require precision. We have to measure ingredients accurately if we are to be successful. In addition to a reliable kitchen scale, it would be a good idea to have a set of measuring cups. As we stated, plans regularly call for cups of milk or water. Still, there are different types of cups. Sometimes, it is safer to measure liquid ingredients in millimeters, deciliters, and liters. In general, and reasonably roughly, one liter is usually considered to be about four average cups. However, the measurement differs a bit depending on the type of cups used. Still, you can measure how many cups in a half gallon using the same theory. There are the following types of cups: 1. Metric 2. US Customary. 3. US "legal." 4. Canadian 5. Imperial 6. Japanese 7. Traditional Japanese cups It is essential to know the metric, American and British or imperial system since that is what we find today. So, here we go: 1. The metric system • In the decimal measuring standard, 1-liter equivalents 1000 mL. One measurement cup rises to 250 ml. Without much of a stretch, you can figure the number of cups in a liter: 1000/250 = 4. Therefore, there are four cups in a liter in the metric system. 2. The American system • In the United States, we depend on the purported American cup to quantify fluids. 1 US cup has a limit of 236.58 ml or 8 US liquid ounces. One liter equivalents 1000 ml or 33,814 US liquid ounces. • The math is equivalent to in the past model: 33.814/8 = 4.22675. Therefore, there are 4.22675 cups in a liter in the American system. 3. For Imperial System (UK) • We often find recipes written for the UK audience; it is logical since we share the same language. Unfortunately, we don't share the same measurement system either.
