January 27, 2017 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Asian Pacific American Affairs, The Blog Tomorrow marks the start of the Lunar New Year. Many Asian American families will celebrate by gathering for a traditional meal. We will give our homes a thorough deep cleaning to make way for the new year and all the good luck it will bring.My mother’s family is originally from Mainland China – my grandmother was born and raised in Beijing, China and my mother was born and raised in Taiwan. Dumplings are a staple for many Chinese American families like ours that trace their origins to Northern China.This is my grandmother’s recipe which was passed down to my mother and then to me. I am sharing this recipe with my fellow Pennsylvanians as we herald the arrival of the Year of the Rooster. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family has through the years. Happy Lunar New Year!Grandma Chang’s Dumpling RecipeMakes about 25 dumplingsDumpling Ingredients2 cups finely chopped dill1 bunch finely chopped green onions1 lb lean ground beef2/3 cups minced green onions1 egg beaten2 tablespoons soy sauce1 teaspoon sesame oil1 teaspoon grated ginger root1/4 teaspoon black pepper2 (10 ounce) packages round dumpling wrappersvegetable oil1/4 cup waterDumpling Dipping Sauce3 tablespoons soy sauce3 tablespoons white vinegar1 teaspoon minced ginger root1/2 teaspoon white sugar1 clove garlic, chopped1/4 teaspoon minced green onionInstructionsIn a large bowl, combine beef, dill, green onions, egg, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, pepper and mix until thoroughly combined.To fill the dumplings, place a wrapper on a floured work surface, and place a tablespoon of filling in the center. With a wet finger, dampen the edges of the wrapper. Fold the dough into a half-moon shape, enclosing the filling. Press and seal to remove extra air, tightly sealing the edges together. Place the dumplings on a parchment-lined baking sheet while you finish sealing the rest of the dumplings.In a large skillet, heat 1/2 inch of oil over moderately high heat.Place dumplings into the hot oil, flat side down, without crowding, and fry until the bottoms are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn the dumplings over, and pour the water over them. Cover the pan with a lid and let the dumplings steam until the water has nearly evaporated and the dumplings have begun to fry in the oil again, 5 to 7 minutes. Uncover the skillet, and let the dumplings cook until all the water is evaporated and the wrapper has shrunk down tightly over the filling, another 2 to 3 minutes.In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, white vinegar, ginger, sugar, garlic, and green onion.Serve immediately. Best if prepared right before eating. If you need to prepare ahead of time, the dumplings can be frozen. To reheat frozen dumplings, follow the instructions in step 4.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf By: Tiffany Chang Lawson, Executive Director of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs Executive Director Tiffany Chang Lawson’s Dumpling Recipe for the Lunar New Year

The Hammers received the positive results, which include defender Issa Diop and midfielder Josh Cullen, less than an hour before kick-off in their 5-1 Carabao Cup third-round win over Hull City, which continued with assistant Alan Irvine in charge and both players – who had been set to start – withdrawn from the team. “All three, who are asymptomatic, will now follow Public Health England and Premier League guidelines and protocols. “Everyone at West Ham United send their best wishes to David, Issa and Josh. “Tuesday’s match will go ahead as planned, with Assistant Manager Alan Irvine taking charge of the team.” West Ham insist that their measures to prevent the spread of the virus remain “stringent”, but also revealed that they had offered to pay for the Hull squad and staff to be tested – with the process not mandatory at their level – though the League One club declined. West Ham added: “The Club’s measures and protocols around COVID-19 remain stringent. This included offering to test the Hull City team ahead of tonight’s fixture – an offer which they opted not to accept.” Cullen Read Also: Suarez agents hold talks with Barca after club veto Atletico switch West Ham are due to face Wolves in the Premier League on Sunday, a match from which Moyes, Diop and Cullen will have to be absent due to self-isolation rules.

The word “scientist” does not specify a gender. And yet, for eons — well, ever since conferences and symposiums emerged from the primordial academic soup — the majority of prominent scientific speakers and panelists have been men. This phenomenon has been documented in studies and spawned many mocking monikers: “manference,” “himposium,” “manel.” People have tried to understand why the Y chromosome so dominates the dais and explain that there really should be more X. (Belluck, 6/12) The director of the National Institutes of Health will no longer participate in all-male panels, he announced Wednesday. Francis Collins said in a statement that “it is time to end the tradition in science of all-male speaking panels.” The decision comes in response to a report by the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine which identified a key role for scientific leaders to play in combatting gender harassment and disparities in women’s visibility in science. (Rodrigo, 6/12) Collins speaks about 125 times annually, according to the NIH, often as a keynote speaker but sometimes as part of a panel. His announcement is more important as a signal that one of the world’s top scientists is addressing the issue, according to an activist working for women in science. (Bernstein, 6/12) NIH Director Vows Not To Participate In All-Male Panels As He Calls For More Diverse Representation At Conferences “Too often, women and members of other groups underrepresented in science are conspicuously missing in the marquee speaking slots at scientific meetings and other high-level conferences,” National Institutes of Health director Francis Collins said in a statement. Collins challenged other scientific leaders to take a similar pledge. The New York Times: N.I.H.
