Page 12 POST-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 26, 2014 t" Ba r'rorl' 11 A new dress code for the Montana House of Represen- l atives warns women legis- lators to have modest skirt lengths and necklines, and bans leggings and open-toe sandals. Women legislators say the dress code, drawn up by Republicans males with- out their input, is patriarchal and insulting. "The code crosses a line," said Rep. Jenny Eck. Stay awake! The Obama administration unveiled' new guidelines that will curb the use of racial profiling by federal law enforcement of- ficers. The Department of Justice rules ban officers from stopping or arresting people on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or gender. But the restrictions won't apply at borders and airports, where agents give extra scrutiny to certain nationalities. The guidelines were released as protests raged across the country over the deaths of two unarmed black men in Ferguson, MO and New York City by white cops. "It's im- perative that we take every possible action to institute strong and sound policing practices," said Attorney General Eric Holder, "par- ticularly in light of recent incidents." Moron! A Washington state man was arrested after he took his neighbors' furniture while they were away and replaced it with his own. Prosecutors said that when a couple came home to their apartment, they found their love seat, ottoman and other belongings gone. A recliner, TV stand and a pile of pizza boxes were left in their place. Information on a traf- fic ticket and pizza receipt that had been left behind led police to the neighbor. He told officers he thought the couple had moved out and aban- doned their furniture. Unbelievable! Cruise ships dumped more than 1 billion gallons of sewage into the ocean in 2014, according to a new analysis of federal data by Friends of the Earth. An average cruise ship with 3,000 passengers and crew produces enough sewage to fill 10 backyard swimming pools a week. According to a poll. 57% of Americans say that a grand jury. made the wrong decision in not inditing New York City Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner, including 47% of whites and 90% of blacks. Just 22% believe the grand jury made the right decision. A new study claims 87% of Americans want cops to wear body cameras, including 90% of blacks and 85% of whites. Football can be injurious to teens. The danger of playing football at the college and pro- fessional levels are well es- tablished, with research showing that at least a third of NFL players develop some form of cognitive disorder. But a worrying new study has found that the brains of high school players also un- dergo significant changes over the course of a single season -- even if they don't get a concussion. Americans watched an average of more than four hours a day of TV last quar- ter, 4 percent less than the same period last year. Online video streaming via ser- vices like Netflix and Hulu, however, jumped nearly 60 percent. Personally speaking, some of my favorites on TV are Chronicle, Wheel of Fortune, 60 Minutes, News, AMC, Bravo and the History channel. Shame! Shame! Nearly 20 percent of workers are late to their jobs at least once a week, according to market research firm YouGov. But office punctuality is becom- ing less important; experts say, since more than half of employed adults check work messages over the weekend, before or after work, and when they're home sick. Some weird American his- tory. When Gerald Ford was chosen by Nixon to replace Spiro Agnew, many people wondered, "Who is this guy? What's he done before?" Well, among other things as a young man, Gerald Ford ap- peared in a 1939 edition of Look magazine with his girl- friend Phyllis Brown. It was an article about a weekend in the life of the "beautiful people." He later appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan. Seems to make him as quali- Buon Nata - FeliceAnno Nuovo Order Sons of Italy in America Grand Lodge of Massachusetts Carmelita Bello, State President and the State Council 0 0 0 fled to be president as nearly anyone else. "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands; one Na- tion, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. "President Dwight Eisenhower signed a bill into law on Flag Day {June 14,1954} that added the words "under God" after "one Nation." Our distinguished musi- cologist Albert Natale reminds us "O Sole Mio" came to rep- resent Naples and, soon enough, all of southern Italy. For the hundreds of thou- sands of peasants who left Italy, it would become a kind of anthem for them, a love song. It would become the song through which Italians could indulge in nostalgia for the Old Country. They would always remember their "son." Be aware, it was an Italian American Charles Joseph Bonoparte who founded the Federal Bureau of Investiga- tion (FBI) in 1908. He built the U.S. Navy into one of the strongest in the world and was the first Italian Ameri- can appointed to a cabinet position, serving as Secre- tary of the Navy and later as U.S. Attorney General during Theodore Roosevelt's administration.

This week we will celebrate a popular Italian Holiday dessert, il panforte, which literally means strong bread, a spiced sweetbread made from dried figs, nuts, candied citrus peel, flour, sugar and honey. Panforte is a delicacy from Siena. Medieval city of the Palio, the famous horse race. A legend says that the origin of the panforte dates back to the year 1200 when Nicolo' de Salimbeni, a wealthy young man from one of the best families in Siena, donated a small bag of spices and the recipe for a sumptuous sweetmeat in which generous use was made of these spices, to a local monastery. In the follow- ing years the recipe was further improved by adding almonds, hazelnuts and candied fruit. Panforte can be found in every Italian bakery during the Christmas season and can be quite expensive. Enjoy making panforte in your kitchen with this very easy and absolutely delicious recipe. Panforte di Siena (serves six) 8-10 dried figs I/2 cup hazelnuts (shelled) I/2 cup almonds (slivered and without skin) 1 cup candied orange peel (finely chopped) 1/2 cup flour I/4 cup cocoa powder I/2 tsp ground cinnamon I/2 tsp ground ginger I/2 cup granulated sugar 3 Tbsp honey Powdered sugar to garnish Preparation: spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet and roast them in a preheated oven' at 375F for 5-10 minutes then rub off the skin.using a clean cloth, chop coarsely and set aside. Coarsely chop the slivered almonds and set aside. Finely chop the dried figs and set aside. In a bowl, mix to- gether flour, cinnamon, ginger and cocoa powder then add the hazelnuts, the almonds, the figs and the candied orange peel. Mix all the ingredients well. Put the granulated sugar and honey in a small saucepan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved then boil until the mixture has reached the temperature of approximately 240F (about 2-3 minutes). Remove from the stove immediately and incorporate into the nut mixture. Transfer the mixture onto a working sur- face and, using a rolling pin, form into a fiat (about 1/2 inch thick) round cake (about 8 inch diameter) to make the tra- ditional panforte shape. Carefully place onto a fiat springform pan lined with parchment paper and bake in a preheated oven at 300F for 30 minutes. Let it cool and dust generously with powdered sugar. Slice to serve.
