    It's been a week since my procedure, and I already noticed an improvement: I don't get dizzy when I stand up.

That's huge! Appreciate the updates here.

Also, someone's brought a lot of traffic to Hubski.

Kinda surprised to read that. Thought there’d be a good amount of Arabic online.

Buuuuut, Google tells me there are 3x more English speakers than Arabic in the world. RIP me assuming the opposite.

Language barriers are real, even online.

    We are excited that this new wiki-project has the possibility to advance knowledge equity through increased access to knowledge.

Neat. My host family's daughter in IL was translating multiple Wikipedia articles from English to Hebrew for a university assignment. Thought that was a neat way to allow students to dig a little deeper into their subject of interest while providing to the greater population of Hebrew speakers.

Catchy, Mac Miller.

Introduced to this band yesterday. Kinda Devil Crybaby vibes - like, 80s rock meets boy band meets metal. Which weirdly reminds me of DragonForce?

Turns out they're signed by Nuclear Blast, that label is doing something right, imo.

Sending a care package with a personal recipe is kinda cute ngl. Hope they sent some snacks with it, too.

    So the other night I made "Ronald's Favorite Sheet Pan Chicken With Potatoes, Dill, Arugula and Garlic Yogurt." The garlic yogurt is really a toum,, and the recipe called for harissa -- I've never used harissa in a recipe before, actually, wasn't familiar with it outside of the context that I'd seen harissa flavored olive oil at a speciality shop.

Placing this on my to-do list. Leaning into more white meats recently, and my dislike of turkey has me looking for more ways to spicy up chicken recipes.

Usually, there isn't much value in the stories attached recipes that necessarily make the meal better preparation-wise. BUT, they are nuggets of substance making the end product a little more personal.

    And I am gonna let each person know when I've tried one of their contributions. I feel like they tried hard to be real people for us, and I want to acknowledge that and recognize it in return.

It's still bread, no doubt. Flour, yeast, water and all. Just a step removed from matzah somehow. Don't want to learn the difference - lest I can't spare relatives from a homemade batch next Passover.

    When you talk about the order of ingredients: are you saying you're supposed to start with cheese?

From the chef himself: [After adding the sauce]

    Add a little cheese before the toppings. This was a trick I learned working at the pizza place. Starting with a very thin layer of cheese helps the toppings stick. It also creates like a cheese-topping sandwich on top of your pizza, which is just amazing .

Cheese, sauce, toppings, then cheese is another variant I'd been doing. At that point, you better have built a nice crust to hold in the lactose lava.
