AMHS Summer 2016 Ferry Schedule Released

The Alaska Marine Highway System released its summer 2016 ferry schedule Tuesday, and as expected, it includes trimmed-down service. “Sitka had probably the most drastic reduction in service in the draft schedule, and that was because of elimination of the fast ferries,” he said. “By adding in the fast ferry, changing the way the LeConte is running, Sitka will get improved ferry service than what had been previously proposed.”  
For the near future, passengers who want to book summertime reservations will need to call rather than use the online reservation system. Woodrow said the online system is going through an overhaul right now, and won’t be ready for at least a couple more weeks. [Source]

Does Taco Bell Hot Sauce Expire and Everything Else About Sauce Packets You Never Thought to Ask. 

Heinz sells an absurd number of these packets each single year—according to the company, that's around 11 billion or so every 365 days, or two for every person on the planet. At nine grams each, that's about 109,000 tons of ketchup. (Heinz uses more tomatoes than anyone else on the planet.)

...those spare Taco Bell sauce packets that you've been using like Tabasco from another mother? Yes, they spoil. They lose their flavor over time, and those plasticky metal packets only go so far to protect the spicy flavor that's buried inside of the casing. Same with ketchup, mayo, mustard, BBQ sauce, or relish.

As detailed in a story from the Atlantic last year, the history of the tiny packages is fascinating. Howard Epstein, a Jewish man from the Bronx, co-created the product after making plastic freezer pops for years. The initial use case was not take-out, either; it was to enable Chinese food to be served on airplanes. Thrillistthen pointed out a disgusting, disappointing fact that you didn't notice: those soy sauce packets quite often don't include soy, but instead a reassuring ingredient called "hydrolyzed vegetable protein." At least, when you pick up a Heinz packet, you know you’re getting ketchup.   [Source]
