Your favorite naked woofy chef takes his act on the road: “I have traveled abroad to a new kitchen in Madrid, Spain and in each episode I take weekend trips to different cities (i.e. Lisbon, Portugal and Biarritz, France) to prepare a favorite dish from each city.” Look for three new episodes coming every 2 weeks showing the Bear-Naked Chef at local markets and eateries learning new recipes which he then prepares in his Madrid kitchen.

SWAG. Hillary Clinton says she keeps a bottle of hot sauce in her bag. And if she is saying this to court the Black vote in NY, it appears she is playing the long con: “Apparently [Mrs. Clinton] kept 100 bottles of hot sauce when she was in the White House. In 2012, she told Conde Nast Traveler about bringing red pepper and Tabasco on her trips as Secretary of State. And late last year, she and her staff talked about peppers and farm stands. To Clinton doubters, perhaps this is all just something she’s been planning since Bill’s election. Could it be that Hillary has built an elaborate myth around herself as someone who is not as bland as she seems but is actually edgy, gutsy, and working so hard she needs to eat food that a lot of white Middle Americans consider too spicy so she can keep moving at high speed?”
WORLD. Brazil votes to impeach the nation’s first female president: “After three days of impassioned debate, the lower house of Congress, the Chamber of Deputies, voted to send the case against Ms. Rousseff to the Senate. Its 81 members will vote by a simple majority on whether to hold a trial on charges that the president illegally used money from state-owned banks to conceal a yawning budget deficit in an effort to bolster her re-election prospects. That vote is expected to take place next month.”
