I left it in the incubator last night with the heating mat turned off and the lid ajar, so it was somewhat insulated, though not fully.

It was warm this morning, and I moved it to a raised rack on the table to finish. I'm going to let it go for another 8 hours. The slab is now quite firm, but I like as much mycelium growth as I can get.

@nathanu I'm not sure I understand — you mean it loses flavor if you let it rest before putting it into the hot pan? I had not noticed, but that seems possible. It's certain, though, that putting the minced (or grated or sliced) garlic immediately into the hot pan loses nutrients:

“Packaging food in plastic sounded like a good idea at the time. How wrong we were and how much illness we caused.”

Because I do a lot of walking in rocky, wet & seasonally cold environments, I wear out my hiking boots every few years.

"waterproof" synthetic boots don't stay waterproof for long.

For 15 years I've searched for "vegan leather hiking boots", by design, they'd be more robust (re-waterproofed)

"#vegan" #leather material is produced, but, the supply & demand, or demand & supply?, is dominated by boots made out of animal skin 🤔

"Across Europe, autumn heralds the arrival of the coveted and delicious porcino, or Boletus edulis mushroom. A cultural and culinary icon in Italian cooking, these mushrooms are the target of recreational mushroom picking in Italy and other countries, but they are also powerful antioxidants and can protect against everything from Crohn’s disease to preeclampsia.

Porcini have been harvested for probably thousands of years, but it’s only recently that they’ve been identified as having the second-highest content of a powerful nutrient among all mushrooms examined for it.

The nutrient is called ergothioneine, styled ‘ERG’ for short, and may very well be the 15th vitamin that science has only just discovered we need."

#Health - A couple of times now I've seen links to videos for the 20,000 step days program. I.e. instead of the 10,000 steps that people have been being recommended to take on a daily basis, go twice as far, 20,000 steps. Today I talked with someone who is doing that. Ye's off his blood pressure meds, lost a significant amount of weight, back out of retirement for work, and doing well. I normally don't think of myself as 'that out of shape', but I do recall that I was doing close to that once.

The latest batch of chickpea and barley tempeh at 49 hours. I meant to take a picture at 48 hours, but forgot. When I got up this morning, the tempeh didn't seem to have progressed much (temperature 70ºF in the room), so I returned it to the incubator (with no heat, just the insulated enclosed space). That helped. Just now the tempeh was quite warm with hints of sporing, so it's back out on the table.

UAW Strikes Built the American Middle Class

Today’s strikers are seeking to renew the broadly shared prosperity that earlier UAW work stoppages created.

IN 1950, THE UAW, WITH REUTHER AS ITS PRESIDENT (he was elected by the union just a few months after the 1946 strike ended), signed a contract with GM that not only raised wages substantially, but included a host of innovative provisions.

GM agreed to provide workers with yearly #COLA cost-of-living adjustments, with another yearly adjustment that increased their pay by the same percentage that the nation’s #productivity had increased during the year.

Workers also received #health #insurance and defined-benefit #pensions.

In subsequent contracts over the following decade, GM agreed to assume all health care costs by eliminating worker co-payments, and to provide workers with what Reuther termed a #guaranteed #annual #income, by agreeing to top off workers’ unemployment insurance benefits during periods when plants were closed to install new machinery, so that their out-of-work income matched their on-the-job income. (In recent decades, as the domestic auto industry and the union movement have both been in decline, most of these contractual features have been eliminated.)

What made these mid-century contracts so fundamentally important was that they weren’t limited to General Motors.

Once one of the Big Three had agreed to these provisions, the UAW got the other two to follow suit. They were largely matched by contracts won by the Steelworkers, the Electrical Workers, the Machinists, and other manufacturing unions, which was significant, because in the mid-20th century unionized manufacturers employed roughly five times the share of American workers that they do today
