Finding Indian Spices around Atlanta

 images Indian spices include a variety of spices grown across the Indian subcontinent (a sub-region of South Asia). With different climates in different parts of the country, India produces a variety of spices, many of which are native to the Subcontinent, while others were imported from similar climates and have since been cultivated locally for centuries.

 

 Image result for patel brothers atlanta Patel Brothers is a family owned business since 1974 and has become the largest Indian Grocery chain in the United States.
There are currently over 50 stores open throughout the United States.

 

Spices are used in different forms – whole, chopped, ground, roasted, sauteed, fried and as topping. They blend food to extract the nutrients and bind them in a palatable form. Some spices are added at the end as a flavouring and are typically heated in a pan with ghee or cooking oil before being added to a dish. Lighter spices are added last, and spices with strong flavour should be added first. Curry is not a spice, but a term used by western people and refers to any dish in Indian cuisine that contains several spices blended together and could be with a gravy base or a dry item.For Indian grocery around atlanta click here

Flights from USA destination to Europe under $100

Image result for norwegian airline

Norwegian has been making a lot of noise about possible flights from Edinburgh to the U.S. for $69. Is that real, or is it just hype? Actually, it’s some of both.

First and foremost, it’s feasible. Next summer, Norwegian will take delivery of some new Boeing 737MAX planes—ordinary 737s with new engines that give it enough range for transatlantic flights. And seat-mile costs of the 737MAX will be among the lowest of any planes. But even with the 737MAX, Norwegian will have to take in more than $69 each way to avoid huge losses. It will pad its take three ways:

  • Sell only a few seats at the come-on price and price the rest at substantially higher levels. The U.S. DOT requires that airlines offer a reasonable number of seats at any “sale” price, so Norwegian will have to sell at least 10 percent of its seats at $69 or whatever low-ball price it wants. But the DOT requires no more than 10 percent, and Norwegian will be free to hike the prices on the rest of the seats to whatever the market will bear.
  • Charge a stiff fee for everything beyond a seat on the plane—checked baggage, carry-on baggage, seat assignments, early boarding, meals/snacks, and whatever else it can price as an option.
  • Limit the extra-low price to one direction. You might be able to buy a one-way seat for that $69, but the return flight is likely to cost a lot more.

Clearly, for trips from the U.K. to the U.S., that $69 fare does not include the onerous British Air Passenger Duty. It’s currently set at £67 (about $84) that is payable for flights outbound from any U.K. airport, but not on inbound flights.

So far, enough has been leaked to verify that the initial route will be from Edinburgh to Stewart Field, Newburgh, New York. Although Newburgh is run by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the same folks who run JFK, Newark, and LaGuardia, it has no system for getting people from there to New York City quickly and easily. Neither of the current options is ideal:

  • Start with (1) a five-mile taxi ride to Salisbury Mills Station, (2) take an hour-long train ride on the infrequent (less than hourly except at commute times) MetroNorth Port Jervis line to Secaucus Junction, and (3) change to a 15-minute ride to Penn Station; $16.75 each way. Alternatively, you can stay on the train to Hoboken, where you can catch a PATH train to the World Trade Center, Greenwich Village, or midtown.
  • Start with (1) a 30-minute bus trip over the Hudson River to Beacon Station, where you can (2) catch a MetroNorth Hudson line train for an 80-minute trip to Grand Central; $16 each way.

According to press reports, Stewart is trying to set up an express bus to Manhattan, but it must necessarily take around 90 minutes—more with heavy traffic or intermediate stops.

Norwegian is also considering flights to/from the Boston area. Again, however, it will use a remote airport (either Providence or Manchester) rather than close-in but expensive Boston Logan.

One point of speculation is whether Norwegian is counting on Scotland to remove or cut that Air Passenger Duty. Scotland’s parliament has been making noises about doing so, but even if it does, the cut would probably not take place until 2018.

The take away, at least for now, is that you’ll be able to fly at very low fares between the New York or Boston areas and the U.K. on Norwegian this coming summer. But you’ll pay a lot more than $138 round-trip, and you’ll find comparatively few seats, to/from inconvenient airports, with lots of fees.

 

Rules and regulation regarding missing checked baggages in airlines

Image result for airline baggage

What are your rights in the event that your bag is lost? First, take note of two important regulations that airlines must follow. The Montreal Convention regulates the liability that airlines undertake when transporting checked luggage on international itineraries (even if you depart on a domestic trip and connect to an international flight). At present, 120 nations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) members follow the Montreal rules. The remainder, including places like Fiji, Honduras, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka among others, follow older rules signed under the Warsaw Convention.

The Montreal Convention, valid only for international travel and trips partially on international travel, considers baggage lost after 21 days, and it requires airlines to pay passengers a fixed sum calculated in Special Drawing Rights or “SDR” units (currently one SDR is valued at USD $1.46) per passenger while the Warsaw Convention pays based on a fixed amount per pound (approximately $20 per kilo) of each bag lost. Even if your bag is returned to you after 21 days, you are still allowed to claim the compensation since you went three weeks without it. To determine which rules your claim fall under, the country of origin and destination must both participate in the same set of rules. Passengers flying to or from the U.S. (even if there is a connection in another country) are also eligible for rules spelled out under the Montreal Convention.

Get your money back. The U.S. Department of Transportation mandates that airlines return the checked bag fee if someone’s bag goes missing. But, the definition of lost varies depending on circumstances, and often if a bag is eventually returned, getting the fee back is more hassle than it is worth. If a bag goes completely missing (that is you don’t receive it within 21 days under the Montreal Convention; the Warsaw Convention does not have a date limit), then the receipts and photos of the bag’s contents that you originally documented will come in handy to getting compensated for lost items. Claim forms can be lengthy, and airlines will reimburse you for the value of the item at the time it went missing (essentially, the depreciated value). That means that the pair of fancy shoes you bought four years ago are certainly worth less today (Norwegian, for example, will depreciate by 40 percent for any contents over a year old).

Airlines also impose restrictions on claims for electronics and jewelry (two of the pricier things to lose if bags go missing). One recommendation is to keep receipts (or better yet, snap photos) of expensive things you purchase and intend to travel with at some point.

Airlines are only liable for up to $3,550 for domestic travel (this amount is adjusted for inflation each year). International travelers covered by the Montreal Convention are eligible to claim no more than approximately 1131 SDR. Unchecked bags (like carry-ons) carry a liability of up to $400 on international flights.

If your bags contain items of greater value than the imposed limits, be sure to declare that upon check-in for special handling. Airlines do sell excess valuation insurance, but you have to ask for it. Each airline has a different policy. For example, United will only offer it on its own flights or to the point of connection if transferring to another airline. United sells it for $1 for every $100 of declared value and only up to $5,000. Things like electronics, sports equipment, perishable and fragile items, and jewelry are not covered.

Not every airline agent may be familiar with excess valuation so be prepared to ask for a supervisor, especially at smaller airports. Consider excess valuation for things like haute couture clothing, which might need to be checked. Travel expert Henry Harteveldt recommends printing out the airline’s contract of carriage from its website if you are carrying expensive items and to allow additional time at the airport to process your request.

Keep in mind that an airline owes you cash (or check) compensation for missing luggage. If a carrier offers a voucher or miles, you have the option to refuse (although sometimes it can be a better deal depending upon your travel patterns).

Can I buy replacement clothes in the interim? Yes, but be sure to keep your spending spree in check. If indeed you need a business suit for an important meeting or black shoes for your tuxedo, then so be it. But, you will have to prove that those items were in the piece of luggage that was lost (that’s where those photos of your bag contents come in handy). Airlines will reimburse you for reasonable purchases made at your destination (typically not if bags are lost upon returning home). Keep all receipts and documentation (including airline itineraries, luggage claim tags, and even boarding passes) as airlines will review these details before issuing compensation.

Each airline has limits on how much you can buy, but remember it is either tied to the value of what you had in your suitcase (did you keep a record?) or the flat amount permitted by each carrier determined by the length of the delay.

Should I buy travel insurance? Keep in mind travel insurance typically only covers reimbursement for essential items when bags are lost at the destination, not when returning home. Don’t forget that many credit cards provide built-in travel or baggage delay/loss insurance that will cover certain expenses. Be sure to read the fine print as each card issuer uses different standards. Some credit card and insurance providers like Allianz actually include electronics and jewelry, which are often omitted from the fine print of an airline’s duty to the passenger, with a reimbursement of up to $500.

Do airlines have a way to back out? Yes. If the carrier can prove it took all reasonable measures to get your bag to you, then it is not liable. This generally applies to situations like extreme weather or mechanical problems with an aircraft. Did the airline take appropriate steps to minimize the delay (finding another plane or assisting to rebook a passenger on another flight, for example).

Keep this in mind before spending money on replacement items, but also consider applying for a refund through travel insurance either purchased separately or through your credit card company. Keep in mind that credit card reimbursement kicks in after whatever your airline pays (or in many cases, does not pay).

are you cutting a cake correctly

There’s nothing more recognizable than a slice of birthday cake. Cutting wedges of cake has long been standard practice when it comes to the circular dessert, but there’s actually a better way. It promises to make the cake taste even better — even though it goes against everything we thought we knew from past birthday parties.

 

 

 

Popsugar reports that mathematician Alex Bellos, of the YouTube channel Numberphile, stumbled upon the method in a 1906 edition of Nature magazine. Thanks to his viral video, the internet was re-introduced to the more efficient cake-cutting approach, forever solving the problem of dryness.

“The ordinary method of cutting out a wedge is very faulty in this respect,” the magazine reads, referring to the part of the cake that is left exposed after cutting out a wedge. As the cake continues to sit out, the next slice becomes dry.

“The results to be aimed at are so to cut the cake that the remaining portions shall fit together,” the magazine continues, and that’s exactly what happens. As Bellos demonstrates, by cutting a round cake lengthwise down the middle and removing a rectangular slice, you can then push the remaining semi-circles of the cake together so the exposed surfaces protect each other from drying out. To ensure optimal freshness, secure them with a rubber band.

The next time you want a slice, cut the cake down the middle again, this time perpendicular to the original cut. From there, alternate the cuts and continue to push the remaining pieces together so they sit flush with one another, allowing for maximum enjoyment. It sounds complicated, it’s worth it; you’ll never have another dry leftover cake on your hands again. Watch the magic below!
