As the news of British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver opening his restaurants Jamie’s Italian and Jamie’s Pizzeria in India surfaced, the capital’s foodies went into a virtual frenzy. Upon getting a chance to taste the cuisine on offer at the Pizzeria, the immense hype around the brand was not unfounded.

Located in the swish Ambience Mall here, Jamie’s Pizzeria, which opened in October, is a pizza lover’s delight. And, not to forget, a meal at the restaurant does not burn a huge hole in your pocket either.

How expensive could a delicious, trademark Jamie Oliver pizza be? Well, a tad lesser than what you would spend at a multiplex watching a desi potboiler. And you would at least get value for money at the Pizzeria!

With the rate list kept at less than Rs.500 per dish, chef Bakul Kodikal breaks down on how the Pizzeria keeps its pricing affordable.

“Jamie Oliver believes in affordable fresh food available for everyone and that is exactly what we have in the restaurants too,” Kodikal told .

“We have worked tirelessly over the past two years to build a local supply chain that can deliver this, while also ensuring the suppliers adhere to the highest welfare standards for their product and source them responsibly. We want to work with local suppliers to deliver a delicious product at an accessible price,” he added.

One would want to begin with the fritto misto, a deliciously soft combination of prawns, squid and fried fish in crispy batter with chunky Italian tartare sauce.

Among the mains, there are as many as 12 pizzas on offer, out of which there are seven varieties for the vegetarians and the rest for the carnivores.

“We have seven vegetarian pizzas and five non-vegetarian pizzas on the menu so we wanted to make sure our non-vegetarian customers had a variety of pizzas to choose from. We have two chicken, two lamb and a prawn pizza with each dish carrying its own distinct tastes…there is a pizza for everyone,” Kodikal said about the menu.

Polpette Schiacciata

Among the vegetarian pizzas, the funghi woodman is, without a shadow of doubt, a compelling indulgence to partake in. The thin crust, laced with mushroom sauce and smoked mozzarella is a mouth-watering offering for the taste buds.

“This dish is straight off the Jamie’s Pizzeria menu in Cambridge (first ever Jamie’s Pizzeria). Each ingredient carries a bold flavour and they work really well together, the freshness of the mint, the roasted wild mushrooms and the creamy mushroom sauce,” Kodikal said about the dish.

The dough, which is made in-house, gives the pizza base a crunchy and juicy flavour.

For the meat lovers, the polpette schiacciata, which oozes with mozzarella and toppings of mutton meatballs, serves a very juicy combination of roasted onions with cheese and meat.

The delicately thin crust of the pizza makes you relish it from the beginning to the end and savour every bite of it.

As far as desserts are concerned, the affogato, which essentially is vanilla ice cream drowned in hot espresso, is the perfect way to sum up a scrumptious meal session at Jamie’s Pizzeria.

Overall, the newly launched eatery is a perfect way to spend a relaxed Sunday evening with great food, a minimalistic decor and not worry about the bill too much.

Male sex hormones may help treat breast cancer: Study

While endocrine therapy is standard-of-care for estrogen receptor positive breast cancer, resistance to these drugs is the major cause of breast cancer mortality.

Sydney : Researchers have found new evidence about the positive role of androgens, commonly thought of as male sex hormones but also found at lower levels in women, in breast cancer treatment.

In normal breast development, estrogen stimulates and androgen inhibits growth at puberty and throughout adult life.

Abnormal estrogen activity is responsible for the majority of breast cancers, but the role of androgen activity in this disease has been controversial.

The new research published in the journal Nature Medicine showed that androgens have potential for treatment of estrogen receptor positive breast cancer.

A cancer is called estrogen receptor positive if it has receptors for estrogen, according to Breastcancer.org.

Using cell-line and patient-derived models, the global team, including researchers at the University of Adelaide and the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Australia, demonstrated that androgen receptor activation by natural androgen or a new androgenic drug had potent anti-tumour activity in all estrogen receptor positive breast cancers, even those resistant to current standard-of-care treatments.

In contrast, androgen receptor inhibitors had no effect.

“This work has immediate implications for women with metastatic estrogen receptor positive breast cancer, including those resistant to current forms of endocrine therapy,” said lead researcher Theresa Hickey, Associate Professor at the University of Adelaide.

“We provide compelling new experimental evidence that androgen receptor stimulating drugs can be more effective than existing (e.g. Tamoxifen) or new (e.g. Palbociclib) standard-of-care treatments and, in the case of the latter, can be combined to enhance growth inhibition,” said Wayne Tilley, Director of the Dame Roma Mitchell Cancer Research Laboratories, Adelaide Medical School, University of Adelaide.

Androgens were historically used to treat breast cancer, but knowledge of hormone receptors in breast tissue was rudimentary at the time and the treatment’s efficacy misunderstood.

Androgen therapy was discontinued due to virilising side effects and the advent of anti-estrogenic endocrine therapies.

While endocrine therapy is standard-of-care for estrogen receptor positive breast cancer, resistance to these drugs is the major cause of breast cancer mortality.

“The new insights from this study should clarify the widespread confusion over the role of the androgen receptor in estrogen receptor driven breast cancer,” said Elgene Lim, a breast oncologist and Head of the Connie Johnson Breast Cancer Research Lab at the Garvan Institute.

“Given the efficacy of this treatment strategy at multiple stages of disease in our study, we hope to translate these findings into clinical trials as a new class of endocrine therapy for breast cancer.”

Elizabeth Olsen: Nepotism creates fear that you don’t deserve the work you get

The actress added that she “always had this need to prove myself to everyone around me that I work really hard”, adding: “I couldn’t walk in a room without everyone already having an opinion.”

Los Angeles, Jan 19 : Hollywood star Elizabeth Olsen says she once thought of changing her surname and distance herself from the success of her family because it was insanity growing up in the spotlight.

“It was insanity. There were times when my sisters would always be spotted and I would be in the car with them and it would really freak me out. It has helped me navigate how I want to approach my career,” said the actress, whose older sisters are Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen.

The actress added that she “always had this need to prove myself to everyone around me that I work really hard”, adding: “I couldn’t walk in a room without everyone already having an opinion.”

Elizabeth opened up om the fears of nepotism.

“The thing about nepotism is the fear that you don’t earn or deserve the work. There was even a part of me when I was a little girl that thought if I’m gonna be an actress I’m going to go by Elizabeth Chase, which is my middle name. And then, once I started working, I was like, ‘I love my family, I like my name, I love my sisters. Why would I be so ashamed of that?’ It’s fine now,” she said.

The actress said fame has made her more of a homebody.

“Fame has also made me someone who is more of a homebody than maybe I would like to be but I know where not to go. If I could do whatever I wanted for the day, I’d start with the gym, then I’d go to the grocery store, because it’s my favourite thing,” Elizabeth told The Sun.

Bill Gates is America’s biggest farmland owner

Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates owns the largest chunk of private farmland in the US across 18 states, a new report has revealed.

San Francisco: Bill and Melinda Gates amassed 242,000 acres of land in the US, with the largest holdings in Louisiana (69,071 acres), Arkansas (47,927 acres) and Nebraska (20,588 acres), according to The Land report.

Bill Gates also owns a stake in more than 24,800 acres of transitional land outside of Phoenix.

Research indicated that the lands across the US is held by Cascade Investment LLC, Gates’ private investment vehicle.

“Gates also backs online used-car seller Vroom through Cascade as well as the Canadian National Railway Company,” Geek Wire reported.

According to the Tri-City Herald, a 14,500-acre swath of choice Eastern Washington farmland in the Horse Heaven Hills in Benton County has just traded hands for almost $171 million – part of Gates’ holdings.

It is unclear why Gates has invested so heavily in farmland, but it could be connected to climate change.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation launched a new nonprofit group a year ago, focused on helping small-scale farmers in developing countries with the tools and innovations they’ll need to deal with the effects of climate change.

Bill Gates is currently at the third spot on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index with a net worth of $132 billion.

But even with his big new agricultural holdings, Gates still doesn’t rank in the Top 100 private landowners overall in the US, considering owners of land of all types.

The list is topped by Liberty Media’s John Malone, with 2.2 million acres of ranches and forests. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos makes that list at No. 25 with 420,000 acres.
