The Historical Feminist Roundtable, Bucket List Edition


Justine Zwiebel/BuzzFeed


HYPATIA: Hi, everyone, and welcome to the Feminist Round Table, where I invite some of history’s most notable feminists to discuss an important and timely topic. I’m very excited to welcome an amazing panel of women to our show today. Everyone, please give a big round of applause to St. Joan of Arc, Abigail Adams, Louisa May Alcott, and Alanis Morissette. So, today, we’ll be talking about what should be on a woman’s bucket list. Ladies, what do you think?


LOUISA MAY ALCOTT: Living free of men.


HYPATIA: You mean, before marriage?


LOUISA MAY: Always.


ST. JOAN OF ARC: Oui. I agree with Mademoiselle Alcott. Men, they are…needy.


ABIGAIL ADAMS: Oh, but we love their foolishness so!


LOUISA MAY: Eh.


HYPATIA: OK, what else should be on the list? Alanis?


ALANIS MORISSETTE: I think all women should learn how to come.


(Abigail Adams and Louisa May Alcott titter.)


ST. JOAN: What is this?


HYPATIA: She means, you know, to orgasm.


ST. JOAN: What is this?


HYPATIA: Let’s move on. What else should be on a woman’s bucket list?


ST. JOAN: All women should know what it’s like to lead an army!


ABIGAIL: Or form a new country!


ALANIS: Or kiss Dave Coulier!


HYPATIA: Well…


ALANIS: Oh, sorry, wrong ex. I mean: kiss Ryan Reynolds!


ALL EXCEPT ST. JOAN: Ooooh, yessss….


ST. JOAN: Who is this?


HYPATIA: What about seeing the Grand Canyon? Or climbing the Eiffel Tower?


LOUISA MAY: Eh.


ABIGAIL: Paris is very pretty! Or so my husband told me. After he came back from a trip to Paris. By himself. While I stayed home. Fomenting rebellion. Ha ha ha!


ALANIS: I think all women should learn to bake something delicious! Not something for a man, but something we love to eat!


LOUISA MAY: Hear, hear!


HYPATIA: Like what?


ALANIS: Brownies!


LOUISA MAY: Roasted potatoes!


ABIGAIL: A Thanksgiving turkey!


ST. JOAN: Those little cakes of ambrosia the Virgin Mary fed me when I was in prison!


(Silence.)


HYPATIA: Thank you, ladies. Any final thoughts on what women should put on their bucket lists?


ABIGAIL: I once beat my husband at whist, and although he was peeved, I was very pleased.


ST. JOAN: I wanted to die nobly, in sacrifice to a purpose larger than myself. And oui, I did! How about putting that on the list?


HYPATIA: Um, I think these are supposed to be more, you know, happy.


ST. JOAN: Oh. Well, the potatoes thing then.


LOUISA MAY: It’s kind of fun to be the sole financial support of your entire family, if by “fun” you mean “utterly terrifying and ultimately forcing you into an early grave.”


HYPATIA: Great.


ALANIS: Kissing Ryan Reynolds is still on the list, right?


HYPATIA: Sure.


ALANIS: Also, writing a song about your ex’s many flaws that goes to No. 1 on the charts.


HYPATIA: It occurs to me that both of those things might be out of many women’s grasp.


ABIGAIL: A nice up of tea, a warm fire when you’re cold, someone to love…


HYPATIA: Those are lovely.


ABIGAIL: And being played by Laura Linney in the miniseries of your husband’s life.


ST. JOAN: Oh, oui, she is merveilleuse.


ALANIS: Mmhmmmm.


LOUISA MAY: Yes.


ABIGAIL: Bae is hawt.


HYPATIA: There you have it, ladies! The ultimate bucket list item is to have your life enacted by Laura Linney. That’s all we have time for today!


LOUISA MAY: Next time, could we talk about work-life balance?


ALANIS: Or the fragile balance of male power and female wiles upon which we’ve all built our careers?


ST. JOAN: Or how the divine feminine cries out from our souls?


HYPATIA: Sure! That or the new hairstyles for spring! See you back here soon for another Feminist Roundtable!

This Easy Cooking Method May Significantly Cut The Calories In Rice

Researchers say the technique cuts the calories by up to 60%.


A team of researchers say they have discovered a new method of cooking rice that they claim may cut the calories by up to 60%.

James, who studies at the College of Chemical Sciences, in Colombo, Sri Lanka, said the team started the research to try and find a way to fight obesity, especially in the developing world.


The result of the research is a "simple cooking method that anyone could do from home," he said at a news conference.


The key to James' method lies in the starch in rice. There are two forms of starch, and people can digest only one.


James hypothesized that if researchers could come up with a way to change the digestible starch into the non-digestible starch, the body would absorb fewer calories.


Experimenting with 38 types of rice, his team found a way to do just that.


‌•Add a teaspoon of cooking oil to boiling water

‌•Add a half a cup of rice

‌•Simmer the rice for 40 minutes, or boil for 20 to 25 minutes

‌•Put it in the fridge for 12 hours


A cup of non-fortified rice is typically about 240 calories, which researchers say can be significantly cut using this cooking method.


"If the best rice variety is processed, it might reduce the calories by about 50% to 60%," he said.


Kantha Shelke, a food chemist and spokeswoman for the Institute of Food Technologists, told BuzzFeed News that the research is a "great example of leveraging food science."


She called the researchers' findings "plausible," adding that the coconut oil could have the effect on starch in rice as described.


However, Shelke said, the effect is only valid "as long as the starch is consumed when cold."


"Heating melts some of the crystals and increases its digestibility and, therefore, its glycemic response," she said.


Shelke added that it's doubtful the research will affect worldwide obesity.


"Obesity is a multi-factorial condition and every little bit helps," she said, "but just reducing the digestibility and the glycemic index of rice cannot reverse or prevent obesity, which is a complex health condition."


It is possible, though, that the research could lead people to prepare rice in a way that reduces calories and helps in their overall health, she said.


"Anything we can do to make our foods more healthful will catch on, for people are becoming increasingly interested in foods that are honestly healthful," Shelke said.
