If you want to eat real, homemade gelato, you have to come to Italy ! The History of Gelato (Gelatu Sicilian) dates back to the 16th century and the island of Sicily was it's birthplace.


There is some confusion in the origin as to where or who really invented gelato. As most stories go, it is credited to Bernardo Buontalenti, a native of Florence, who delighted the court of Catherina di Medici with his creation. Italians are certainly credited with introducing gelato to the rest of Europe; with Sicilian born Francesco Procopio dei Coltelli who undoubtedly was one of the most influential individuals in the history of gelato, as one of the first to sell it to the public.

 

Summoned to Paris in 1686, he opened a café named after himself called Café Procope, which quickly became one of the most celebrated haunts of the literary establishment in France. In Italy meanwhile, the art of traditional gelato making was passed on from father to son, improved and perfected right up to the 20th century, when many gelato makers began to emigrate, taking their know-how to the rest of Europe.

The best gelato is found in Italy, which has more than 35,000 ice cream shops, many producing gelato the traditional way. Fruit flavors have only fruit, ice and sugar, while the milk-based flavors have less air injected than typical American ice creams, making them. “You can’t get pure flavors like this".

 

Gelato University
Extensive training is part of the formula. After an initial course, a would-be gelato maker has to spend four years as an apprentice before earning the title of “Maestro"

 

Gelato in Italian literally means "frozen", but is basically used to indicate the Italian type of ice cream. One of the basic differences between Gelato and the Ice Cream we know of in the United States is that it doesn't contain as much air, and is therefore more intense in flavor. In part, Gelato is healthier than American-style Ice Cream since it is made with all natural ingredients, fruit and milk, not cream. It contains fewer calorie, only 5%-8% butter fat. Where as American-style Ice Cream contains 10%-15% butter fat. The best Gelato is one that is made fresh on the premises. Produzione Propria (made on site) Italian gelato is made to be eaten fresh and can only be stored a few days before serving. For a product to be marketed as ice cream in the U.S., it must contain at least 10 percent milk fat, according to the IDFA. Italy’s traditional fruit-flavored gelatos have virtually no fat; even the milk-based flavors don’t have enough for U.S. requirements.

 

Sorbetto / Sorbet: Is a frozen dessert made from iced fruit juice puree and contains no milk. It may contain wine or liquor. There is very little difference between
Lemon Ice /Granita (gah-NAH-tah). and Sorbetto only the consistency.
Folklore has it that the Roman Emperor Nero invented sorbet during the first century A.D. when he had
runners along the Appian Way pass buckets of snow hand over hand from the mountains to his banquet hall where it was then mixed with honey and wine.

Social brand curation: interesting examples | Allicansee | Scoop.it

"How brands tell their stories is going to be a cornerstone of future operational success. Good social brand curation creates compelling and credible stories based on the logic of the data and the magic of the people." Interesting to read if you were not yet convinced about how important social curation is for brand building but also to see cool concrete examples.

Jésus Christ serait apparu... sur une chaussette

Jésus Christ serait apparu... sur une chaussette | Allicansee | Scoop.it

Le visage du Christ aurait été aperçu sur une banale chaussette étendue sur un séchoir.

 

A Orpington, petite banlieue et circonscription électorale de Londres, une femme prénommée Sarah Crane a cru voir le visage de Jésus imprimé sur une chaussette étendue sur un séchoir. Elle affirme avoir été secouée par la netteté et la distinction presque parfaite du visage du Christ sur ce banal morceau de textile. "J'avais laissé les vêtements sécher durant toute la nuit - et il était probablement là depuis un moment déjà- quand j'ai remarqué le visage sur la chaussette. J'ai alors appelé mon copain et on pouvait voir très clairement le visage de Jésus Christ sur la chaussette. Il y a un visage impassible, et un profil de côté, nous ne pouvions pas y croire. J'ai immédiatement pris quelques photos pour montrer à la famille et aux amis, tous ne pouvaient pas y croire. Nous pensons que c'est un peu un signe mais pourquoi, nous ne savons pas" affirme-t-elle dans The Daily Mail...

Patterns of connections reveal brain functions

Patterns of connections reveal brain functions | Allicansee | Scoop.it
For more than a decade, neuroscientists have known that many of the cells in a brain region called the fusiform gyrus specialize in recognizing faces. However, those cells don't act alone: They need to communicate with several other parts of the brain. By tracing those connections, MIT neuroscientists have now shown that they can accurately predict which parts of the fusiform gyrus are face-selective.

Content curation is in the DNA of all journalists

Content curation is in the DNA of all journalists | Allicansee | Scoop.it
Journalists have been curating content for years. It’s always been an integral part of newsgathering. We may not have called it curation, but we were doing it all the same. In fact curation is an essential part of our job.

 

Interesting reflexions from Dave Brewer on how new technology has not created curation but changed the way you could perform it in a News Reporting and Journalism environment.

 

While there's clearly an opportunity at democratizing media creation and make it available to all through the new social media revolution, it's refreshing to see journalists also embrace these changes and turn them into benefits to improve the way they work.

Where To Find Free Images: Free Stock Photo Sites

Where To Find Free Images: Free Stock Photo Sites | Allicansee | Scoop.it

Getting images for free is great, and there is a lot of choice out there, but sourcing images from a free site can have its drawbacks, the license that the images are provided with is different on every site you use. Some sites prohibit commercial use of the image, most require an attribution, some require you register or signup to a newsletter to access the images, some ask that you seek permission first etc.

 

A word of warning: Expecting that nobody will notice if you make use of an image that you just take without permission is foolish, tools like TinEye make it free and easy to find who has used an image without permission, and stock agencies like getty and others use paid services like picscout.com track image misuse, bill the offender, taking legal action if images are not removed. If you are using images without the correct license, someone will catch up with you sooner or later. here's a typical forum quote "I currently have a demand from getty images for $1200 over an image I hot-linked to in a blog entry 2 years ago."

 

With that in mind, here's our definitive list of resources providing free stock photos with a table of comparisons:...
