Drink Recipe

I took my first childish solo steps on the World Wide Web in the autumn of 1994. I had snuck into a Macintosh cluster in the student building on the Indiana University campus. I'm not a student anymore, but I'm not yet old enough to look out of place, so no one asks.

Fumbling around with a fast connection to a vast wealth of information, I naturally gravitated to resources relevant to my profession: the fine art of mixology. Recklessly, I stumbled from beer page to wine page, and beyond, into the world of potable oddities. And it was here that I found an entire page of mixed drinks, all incorporating that most unique of American marketing phenomena, ZIMA.

I copied this file of ZIMA drink recipes to my own disk, a trophy of sorts from my first day giggin' around the Web. And, eventually, I put my valuable information resource to good use.

In honor of my admiration for the minds behind ZIMA, I mixed the ZIMA SLIMEBALL. It was sunny outside when I mixed this drink, so I decided to mix it in the street (on the curb, actually). All ingredients were simulated, mind you; after all, drinking in public is sinful and illegal.

Ingredients

1 packet Lime Jell-O
1 bottle Zima

Directions

The process was simple: I emptied a box of pre-sweetened lime jello in a pint glass, then topped it off with ZIMA.

The result was a shockingly sweet, pasty beverage which left me with a stinging, citrusy aftertaste and a green tongue.

I would recommend this drink to anyone who likes ZIMA. In my opinion, it's a marked improvement on the original product.

More The Fools We

B: Back in 1995, we found what we believed to be the Zima homepage on the World Wide Web. We thought it was a great embarrassment to the Coors Brewing Company, makers of Zima, as it bragged about how Zima was “trendy” and suitable for “inexperienced drinkers.” It also listed all manner of horrible recipes such as the Zima Slimeball, which we thought would be perfect for our debut show on the Internet.

Little did we realize that we had fallen prey to a prank, a clever parody contrived by one Ian McFarland. The fact that we'd been duped didn't dawn on us until we were actually videotaping the Zima Slimeball for ROX #85. Of course, that just added a good ironic twist to the whole segment.

The Zima parody page is long gone from the Internet, alas, but we cherish its memory. Ian, wherever you are, this one's for you.

The use of composite gels improved the adherence of cells. Different scaffold architectures were studied including porous structures and perforated gel layers. Selected hydrogels were examined in an in vivo pilot study using a rabbit model to evaluate their biocompatibility, stability and degradation.

Neill N, Brodaty H. The exon 3 of the SPINK gene was amplified and a Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (RFLP) analysis using SPINK F and SPINK R primers for RFLP PCR and Pst I and Bsrd I enzymes was carried out to confirm the polymorphism. Treatment outcomes were analyzed based on presence or absence of mutation. Results of the ongoing study : Of the 20 patients with CP who were evaluated for SPINK 1 N34S polymorphism, heterozygous mutation was found in 6 of 20 (30%) patients and homozygous mutation was found in 1 of 20 (5%) patients. Conclusion : Our study reports a possible association of SPINK I N34S polymorphism and chronic pancreatitis in our population and implying a potential novel drug target in future. The Parts Check website is www. Collision Repair Centre have been using Parts Check for approximately 6 to 8 months. During this time, we have found this program to be invaluable. It has made the processing of our quotes very time efficient and we have found the parts prices to be accurate and up to date. Dave Taylor, owner of Parts Check has provided constant support. Working with Parts Check is an absolute time saver, it has significantly reduced our time on the phone to part suppliers, increased our availability to prepare quotes and allowed us more time to better handle our customer service.. Of these, 15 (79%) daughters and seven (70%) mothers were dismissive in type. We did not find an association between mothers' and daughters' attachment style. Idealization scores were high and reflective functioning scores low in both mother and daughter groups. Women with anorexia nervosa and their mothers commonly have a dismissive attachment style. Low levels of reflective functioning and high idealization scores are found in both groups, and may be learned (or transmitted) from mother to daughter. A difficulty in emotional processing, exemplified by unresolved loss, may be transmitted to daughters, and act as a risk factor for the development of anorexia nervosa. More specifically, HHS proposes to modify the Privacy Rule, taking into account the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, to prohibit health plans from using or disclosing personally identifiable health information, which would explicitly include genetic information, for underwriting purposes. Public comments on the proposed rule are due December 7, 2009. EPIC is recommending that HHS pay particular attention to the problem of data reidentification. Since these codes are noncovered services for which no payment may be made under Medicare, we did not propose to add online evaluation and management services to the list of Medicare Telehealth Services for CY 2014. We note that like certain other non-face-to-face PFS services, the other components of the TCM service are commonly furnished remotely using telecommunications technology, and do not require the patient to be present in-person with the practitioner when they are furnished. As such, we do not need to consider whether the non-face-to-face aspects of the TCM service are similar to other telehealth services. Were these components of the TCM services separately billable, they would not need to be on the telehealth list to be covered and paid in the same way as services delivered without the use of telecommunications technology.
