NEW YORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez walked out of his grievance hearing on Nov. 20 after arbitrator Fredric Horowitz refused to order baseball Commissioner Bud Selig to testify.Horowitz was in the midst of the 11th day of hearings on the grievance filed by the players’ association to overturn the 211-game suspension given to Rodriguez by Major League Baseball last summer for alleged violations of the sport’s drug agreement and labor contract.A person familiar with the session said that after Horowitz made his ruling, the New York Yankees third baseman slammed a table, uttered a profanity at MLB Chief Operating Officer Rob Manfred and left. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because what takes place at the hearing is supposed to be confidential.“I am disgusted with this abusive process, designed to ensure that the player fails,” Rodriguez said in a statement. “I have sat through 10 days of testimony by felons and liars, sitting quietly through every minute, trying to respect the league and the process.“This morning, after Bud Selig refused to come in and testify about his rationale for the unprecedented and totally baseless punishment he hit me with, the arbitrator selected by MLB and the players’ association refused to order Selig to come in and face me. The absurdity and injustice just became too much. I walked out and will not participate any further in this farce.”Rodriguez’s legal team remains involved in the proceeding. It has been unclear whether Rodriguez will testify. A day earlier, Yankees President Randy Levine testified and denied conspiring with MLB on A-Rod’s suspension.Levine was asked a series of questions by Rodriguez lawyer Joseph Tacopina, according to another person with knowledge of the proceeding, who also spoke on condition of anonymity because of the hearing’s confidentiality provision.The person said Levine testified for 10-15 minutes and denied having any personal gain from Rodriguez’s suspension or the Yankees falling under the luxury tax threshold; and of having an agreement to receive a commission of any money the team saved because of the ban.Levine also denied discussing Rodriguez’s discipline with Major League Baseball or Selig and telling Rodriguez surgeon Dr. Bryan Kelly or anyone else that he wanted the player off the field, the person said.The person said Levine testified he may have jokingly used the phrase “is he off the juice?” when talking with Rodriguez about other players who weren’t performing. Levine testified he had no exact recollection. The hearing resumed on Nov. 18 before Horowitz, who also heard the case from Sept. 30-Oct. 3 and Oct. 15-18.Howard Gans, a lawyer for MLB, said in papers filed in federal court that Horowitz will hear the case daily through Nov. 26 rather than the original plan to recess after Nov. 22 and resume Dec. 16.MLB said U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos in Manhattan issued an order on Nov. 19 compelling Michael Sitrick, head of the public relations firm Sitrick & Co., to comply with a Sept. 19 subpoena issued by Horowitz to appear at the arbitration and to provide documents. Sitrick & Co. worked on Rodriguez’s behalf earlier this year.In papers filed in New York Supreme Court on Oct. 29, MLB alleged Sitrick & Co. had provided records from Bosch to Yahoo Sports, which published a story Feb. 5 saying the name of 2011 NL MVP Ryan Braun appeared in records of Biogenesis of America, the Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs.MLB said in the court papers it believed the documents had been “provided to Sitrick & Co. by Rodriguez or others acting on his behalf.” Miami New Times had reported Jan. 29 that Rodriguez bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances from Biogenesis during 2009-12.Sitrick’s lawyers, who had the matter removed to federal court, did not respond to an email seeking comment on Ramos’ order, which MLB said was read from the bench.Braun agreed July 22 to a season-ending 65-game suspension. Rodriguez was suspended Aug. 5 for alleged violations of the sport’s drug agreement and labor contract, and the players’ union filed the grievance to overturn the penalty. Under baseball’s drug agreement, he was allowed to continue playing while contesting the discipline.The three-time AL MVP said four years ago he used PEDs while with the Texas Rangers from 2001-03, but has denied using them since. At the time of his suspension, MLB said the penalty was for “use and possession of numerous forms of prohibited performance-enhancing substances, including testosterone and human growth hormone over the course of multiple years” and for “engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the office of the commissioner’s investigation.”TweetPinShare0 Shares
NEW ORLEANS — As Quincy Pondexter saw his 3-pointer go down with 49.9 seconds on the clock, he turned up court, allowed a slight smile and pounded his chest with the palm of his hand three times.The clutch basket as the shot clock wound down gave Pondexter a career-high 25 points and all but sealed New Orleans’ third straight victory, a 102-96 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Feb. 25. “That’s probably why a little emotion came out,” Pondexter said. “It was a dagger.”Tyreke Evans had 15 points and 11 assists for the Pelicans, who have for all practical purposes posted their past three victories without All-Star Anthony Davis.Davis sprained his right shoulder in the first quarter of New Orleans’ victory in Miami on Feb. 21 and has not suited up for either of the Pelicans past two games against Toronto and Brooklyn.New Orleans was also without two other top players: forward Ryan Anderson (sprained right knee) and point guard Jrue Holiday (lower right leg injury).“Missing Ryan, missing A.D., missing Jrue — those are great young players,” Pondexter said. “We’re in a playoff chase and I had to step up.”The victory left New Orleans two games behind Oklahoma City for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference.“I don’t think anyone in this locker room counts us out. We have a lot of heart,” Pondexter said. “We’re not going to lay down just because a couple guys get hurt.”Omer Asik had 12 points and 13 rebounds for New Orleans. Dante Cunningham added 13 points, Norris Cole 11 and Alexis Ajinca 10 for the Pelicans, who overcame 20 turnovers by shooting 51.4 percent.Cole credited Evans with using powerful drives to draw defenders, then finding open shooters.“It’s great when multiple guys are getting those looks. It creates the feeling of just good basketball,” Cole said. “With the turnovers we had, if we didn’t shoot that well, I’m not sure what it would look like this game. Good thing we knocked them in.”Joe Johnson scored 21 points and Thaddeus Young added 19 for Brooklyn, which lost for the first time in three games.Jarrett Jack, who had missed Brooklyn’s past two games with a sore left hamstring, scored 15 points against his former team. Brook Lopez also scored 15 for the Nets.“We played a solid performance,” Jack said. “They knocked down the necessary shots and we just couldn’t get stops down the stretch. … They have a lot of good shooters that can complement the pressure they put on the middle.”Brooklyn, which held a couple of two-point leads in the third quarter, outscored New Orleans 52-42 in the paint, 16-9 on second-chance points, and 16-12 on fast-break points.But New Orleans combined for 11 3s and outrebounded the Nets, 43-37.New Orleans was clinging to an 83-82 lead in the fourth quarter when Luke Babbitt’s 3 ignited a 10-0 run. Babbitt hit a second 3 during the surge, which ended with Evans’ reverse layup. The Nets could not get within five after that.“We played well,” Nets coach Lionel Hollins said. “Just not well enough.”(BRETT MARTEL, AP Sports Writer) TweetPinShare0 Shares
NYON, Switzerland — UEFA and FIFA say they have sent a final warning to Greece that it faces suspension from international football for government interference.The Greek government wants to pass laws punishing violence at sports events, including imposing fines and threatening to cancel matches.Football’s governing bodies have strict rules protecting their member federations’ independence to run their own affairs.UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino says a joint letter with FIFA was sent to the Greek government on April 22.Infantino hopes the threat “will make them reconsider their actions, so we can still work together to resolve the issues affecting Greek football.”Teams and officials from suspended countries cannot take part in international matches and meetings.In 2006, FIFA briefly suspended Greece when European champion for government interference.TweetPinShare0 Shares
MANCHESTER, UK – It seemed Marco Silva had taken on a near-impossible job when he was hired as manager of Hull at the start of January.The promoted club from northern England was up for sale, in last place in the Premier League and planning to sell some of its best players. Money was tight, fans were disgruntled and a squad short on big names had been struck by injuries in key areas.Silva, a 39-year-old Portuguese coach labeled “Mini-Mourinho” by some after his illustrious coaching compatriot, was new to the English game and was facing a tough and grueling immediate run of matches across three competitions.At his presentation as Hull’s third permanent coach in a six-month span, Silva said survival in the Premier League would be a “miracle” but urged fans to believe in him. Somehow, though, he’s turning things around, just like he did in his first coaching job at Portuguese team Estoril, which he transformed from a second-tier club on the brink of financial ruin to a Europa League qualifier in two seasons.Silva has worked wonders in the transfer market and on the field.Operating under financial constraints, he saw key midfielders Robert Snodgrass and Jake Livermore sold from under his feet and reacted by making seven signings — predominantly players on loan and rejects from bigger clubs. Striker Oumar Niasse, for example, arrived from Everton, where he had made five appearances and not scored a single goal in the past year; winger Lazar Markovic (from Liverpool) and Omar Elabdellaoui (from Olympiakos) were among others looking to relaunch their careers.On the training ground, Silva worked hard on team shape and organization, with defender Curtis Davies saying the coach literally dragged players into the positions he desired. Days off were canceled. Silva was hard, but fair.His impact was been astonishing.Hull has won all four of its home matches under Silva, having failed to win any of its previous five at KCOM Stadium. Among the defeated teams were some stellar names, Manchester United in the League Cup and Liverpool in the league last weekend. Hull also ground out a 0-0 draw at United in the league and was regarded as unlucky to lose 2-0 at runaway leader Chelsea, when midfielder Ryan Mason fractured his skull.Hull — a team with an eclectic mix of youngsters, misfits and journeymen — has climbed to 18th place and within a point of safety. A trip to Arsenal on Saturday suddenly holds no fear for Silva’s team, and why should it? The last time Silva was in the dug-out at Emirates Stadium, he was in charge of Olympiakos and the Greek side stunned Arsenal 3-2 in the Champions League in September 2015.“I am not a miracle worker,” Silva said. “But that is not important. I am a worker, I want to work and keep our goal in our minds always, but my feet always stay on the ground.”It’s a good time to be playing Arsenal, too. Almost inevitably, Arsene Wenger’s side is starting to implode at a key stage of the season, with back-to-back losses to Watford and Swansea dropping Arsenal to fourth place and virtually ruling it out of the Premier League title race. The annual debate over whether Wenger should stay or go at the end of the season has resumed and the atmosphere inside the Emirates could be toxic if Hull continues where it left off against Liverpool last week.“They didn’t have good results in their last two games,” Silva said Thursday, “and, of course, the last time I played there it was a great result for us, for Olympiakos. But now it’s different. Different competition, different moment and different clubs.”TweetPinShare0 Shares

There are many different options for the bridge in terms of designs and a final design will be chosen next Fall.One of the biggest decision developers still need to figure out is whether or not the bridge will allow for motor vehicles to travel on it or not.Many of the neighbors at the crowded meeting Wednesday night voiced their support for a pedestrian and bicycle only bridge.“There is a huge demand for people to cross the river in a low stress way,” said Wendy Landman. “The bridge used to be a magical place for walking and biking. It could be again.”“People used to dance on that bridge. They would get their photograph taken,” said Anita Johnson.Developers are also considering developing a High Occupancy Vehicle lane for buses and shuttles and ride shares carrying at least three people only. Some said since the Silver Line is the only way to get into the Seaport via public transportation, a transit lane on the bridge could be helpful.Residents and community members who said they don’t want cars allowed to travel on the bridge did agree that emergency vehicles should be able to use the bridge in emergency situations.Before the bridge closed in 2014, the bridge only allowed pedestrians and cyclists. Cars were banned from the bridge in 1997 due to weight concerns.Developers said they were also considering designs that allowed for cars to travel in each direction or only westbound exiting the Seaport.Officials said they want to get as much input as they from residents before they make a final decision on design plans.More information and comment input at NorthernAveBridgeBos.com.While you’re here …we have a small favor to ask.

The city is now hoping to rebuild the 110 year old bridge for a new era. According to developers, the bridge will be climate change resilient.

After losing (at WSOF 19) it was like, ‘Man what’s the worst that’s gonna happen?’ Especially (after) the way I lost, it was definitely devastating, it definitely impacted me as an athlete — but resetting goals, re-figuring out new expectations to reach and what I want to accomplish in the sport helped me refocus myself and definitely just jump back on the horse again and start plugging away.”Not only did that loss help Archuleta to start over again fresh, it also led to him making a more serious commitment to fighting that led to his current 16-fight win streak.“I quit a full time job. I was working on the electrical union, and uh, I just sold myself 100 percent in being a MMA professional. With (the help) of Joe ‘Daddy’ Stevenson we started out these (16) wins, and got with Tiki Ghosn as my management, and Paul Herrera and Duane Ludwig and all these coaches and training partners that I have now. It’s just been a tremendous team to get me to where I’m at right now.”That team has also led Archuleta to a prodigious output, averaging four fights a year over the last four years during his current streak.“I wish I could fight more, you know? There was one year I think I fought about seven or eight times. I just love fighting. Every week I competed when I wrestled for Purdue in the Big Ten, so I was wrestling the top ten guys in the country every weekend and every week, day in and day out and just putting my nose to the grindstone. Fighting’s a little different — you can’t fight all the time — and that’s something I’ve gotta realize.”That hasn’t stopped Archuleta from asking Bellator for every fight he can get, including Ricky Bandejas at The Forum in Inglewood this Saturday.“Yeah, you know I’m a fan of the sport and I definitely followed Ricky going into that fight because I wanted to know who Gallagher was fighting. Looking at his resume I was like, ‘Man this is no easy task for Gallagher to face.’ All my focus is on this fight. Obviously, five-round fights are the main goal, but this task at hand is my biggest task of my career.”After seeing Bandejas’ impressive win at Bellator 204, Archuleta was ready to take him on, too. Archuleta offers nothing but praise for his opponent heading into the fight.“Ricky’s a true fighter, he’s a blue collar worker. You know he comes to scrap, he has a family that he’s fighting for, he’s not fighting just to fight. He has the same vision that I do and the same characteristics that lead him to me. He’s an 11-1 opponent, and our coaches do a great job of breaking him down and coming up with game plans that I’m going to dictate when it comes to our fight.”Even though he has nothing but respect for Bandejas, he plans to show him a little “California Love” once he gets to Inglewood and prove why Westside is the best side.“Absolutely! In New Jersey he’s ranked No. 1 as far as some of the rankings that are out there. I’ve been ranked No. 1 in California on Tapology for a long time, so I definitely do feel like it’s an East vs. West coast deal — AND it’s in my hometown. I’ve had some of the best performances of my life here in California at the Citizens Bank Arena, and to take that momentum into The Forum where I envision myself fighting for many years, it’s exciting.”No matter how his night at The Forum goes, Archuleta won’t be looking past Bandejas the way that Gallagher did. He’s got big dreams in Bellator, but he’s willing to be patient.“Well, I just take it as they come you know, fight by fight. From what I’ve read, (Kyoji) Horiguchi has the next title fight ahead of me, which is fine. I’m just going to continue to make waves in every single weight class. If that means after this fight I go up to 155 and make a title stake there, then I go in there and I fight a 55er and make a title stake there. I’ve done it at 45, I’ve come down to 35 to make some more noise, and I just think it makes me more of a lucrative fighter. (I’m) a guy that’s gonna be easier to promote, a guy that’s willing to step up and take chances, just like our boss Scott (Coker) did with Darrion (Caldwell) sending him out to Japan.”That chance didn’t work out so well for Caldwell, but we’ll find out Saturday night if Juan “The Spaniard” Archuleta is taking the right chances to advance in his MMA career.Complete audio of our interview is embedded above, and complete coverage of “Fedor vs. Bader” resides here at MMA Mania all week long.To check out the latest Bellator MMA-related news and notes be sure to hit up our comprehensive news archive right here.

By Jacqueline Cain· Get in the Mood with These Passion Fruit Cocktail Recipes Sam Treadway of Backbar, Tainah Soares of A4cade, and more local bartenders share their recipes highlighting this juicy favorite. Passion Fruit margarita at Burro Bar. / Photo providedIt’s not only aptly named for romantically themed imbibing—the passion fruit is also considered an aphrodisiac. The fruit, common in South America, is a good source of several vitamins and minerals. A few could contribute to its stimulating reputation—vitamin A contributes to healthy skin and what we think of as that lusty glow. Fiber helps you stay, let’s say, comfortable on the inside, priming you for closeness. And potassium helps regulate heart rate and blood pressure, keeping your blood pumping.But the fruit is also just straight-up delicious. The juicy, sweet tartness of passion fruit is a favorite flavor for bartenders, as it pairs well with other fruits, warm spices, and several different liquors. Passion-seeking drinkers can find it on cocktail menus around Boston, including in Todd Maul’s festive Rum Barrel for two at Café ArtScience.We asked a few local bartenders to share recipes for their passion fruit interpretations. All three drinks are available at their bars of origin, but if you and your honey are looking to get fancy at home this year, pick up some passion fruit purée or concentrate, which can both be found at many international markets, Whole Foods, and online, stock your at-home bar, and have a good time.Passion Fruit Margarita at Burro BarAt the latest from the Alpine Restaurant Group (Rosebud, Posto, the Painted Burro), director of operations Alec Riveros debuted a passion fruit take on the signature drink this past weekend, just in time for Valentine’s Day.2 oz.

This reader is looking for excellent plant-based dining options to start the new year. Devoted foodies and restaurant newbies love The Feed. Sign-up now for our twice weekly newsletter. Welcome to Ask the Editor, Boston magazine’s dining advice column. Need a restaurant recommendation? Ask a pro.Seasonal veggies are the star of the plate at Union Square’s Field & Vine. / Photo by Adam DeTour for 50 Best RestaurantsQuestion:Where to find great vegetarian cooking?—S.H.Thank you for teeing up this to-the-point question just before the new year, when many people take the opportunity to detox with healthier eating. In 2019, the trend of plant-based dining is only going to continue—and Greater Boston happens to have many lovely restaurants with chefs who excel at cooking with our regional and imported bounty. Here are a few picks for places prime for vegetarian dining, that won’t leave out omnivorous friends.Field & Vine is one such place. A 2017 debut from chef Andrew Brady and general manager Sara Markey, it is the newest restaurant on our 50 Best list, thanks to dishes like grilled shiitake with pea tendrils; rainbow carrots bejeweled with cranberries; and a fall salad finished with edible flowers, perhaps some of the same buds that the couple’s artist friend used to hand-dye the rustic room’s linens. The secret garden of an American bistro is “committed to the natural world,” a mission which results in standout plates that showcase every ingredient’s best features. (9 Sanborn Court, Somerville, 617-718-2333, fieldandvinesomerville.com)Another Top 50 restaurant, Alden & Harlow, is also a fine choice for plant eaters. There is the Ubiquitous Kale Salad, of course, but also small plates like roasted broccoli with butternut squash hummus, tangy cheese, and cashew; and chestnut tortellini, with black truffle fonduta and roasted apple. It’s also one of our favorite bars for ordering mocktails, if you happen to be trying for a Dry January, too. (Alden & Harlow, 40 Brattle St., Cambridge, 617-864-2100, aldenharlow.com)Eric Cooper’s cooking at Forage is informed by his New England upbringing, and experience running kitchens near Acadia National Park, in Boston, and in 24 other countries across two decades as a chef. The Cambridge bistro opened in 2016 from a trio of Ten Tables JP alumni, and like that incubator, Forage offers a $40 vegetarian (or vegan) tasting menu every night, as well as vegetarian options for the Tuesday wine dinners. Meat-free a la carte options change with the seasons, but might include maltagliati with heirloom white pumpkin, leeks, and confit garlic. The creative cocktail program, helmed by Joe Choiniere, complements the experience with ingredients like lemon-thyme shrub, and pickled green strawberry and ginger puree. (5 Craigie Cir., Cambridge, 617-576-5444, foragecambridge.com)Thanks again for this timely, trendy, tasty question. Here’s hoping you have a healthy and delicious New Year.

Hank Haney has been suspended from his SiriusXM PGA Tour radio show in the wake of highly controversial remarks he made about women’s golf earlier this week.The PGA Tour and SiriusXM said in a joint statement released on Twitter Thursday night that Haney’s commentary was “insensitive” but did not rule out the possibility of Haney returning to the SiriusXM airwaves.Here is the full statement:Joint @PGATOUR/@SIRIUSXM statement on @HankHaney. pic.twitter.com/XE0qwkmVwE— PGA TOUR Communications (@PGATOURComms) May 30, 2019“Mr. Haney’s comments on women’s professional golf were insensitive and do not represent the views of the PGA Tour or SiriusXM,” the statement said. “The PGA Tour is committed to and proud of the increasingly diverse makeup of our fan base, not to mention the power and accomplishments of the game’s world-class, global players — both on the PGA Tour and the LPGA, whom we are working with more closely than ever before. SiriusXM proudly covers and supports both women’s and men’s golf and the athletes that make them great. At the PGA Tour’s instruction Mr. Haney has been suspended from the SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio channel. SiriusXM is reviewing his status on SiriusXM going forward.”A comment from Haney was also included: “I accept my suspension and apologize again.”ColumnsAt the U.S. Women’s Open, players refuse to let Haney’s dismissive comments get them down
With the Open Championship in full swing, GOLF’s Fully Equipped podcast hosts Jonathan Wall and Tim Briand dig into the notable equipment changes being made at the Open Championship, including Tiger Woods’ recent putter testing and Jordan Spieth’s new Titleist’s T100 irons.Given the multitude of driving irons being used at Royal Portrush, we discuss if the average golfer is better off using a driving iron or a hybrid. We break down the benefits of both clubs and the selection criteria players should be looking at when it comes to testing and potentially putting one in the bag.“If I don’t have a traditional 2- or 3-iron in the bag, what should I have in there?” said Briand. “In the fitting environment, we see there are a lot of players that are misinformed and uneducated when making this decision.”The episode concludes with the second part of an interview with PGA Tour winner Charles Howell III, who tells the story of the one-off Ping driver he played in college that was ahead of its time.You can hear the rest of Howell’s thoughts on his clubs, setup and more in the podcast below.

The equality watchdog has asked a barrister to examine whether there needs to be a legal right to independent living for disabled people, because of concerns that their rights to choice and control over their lives is being “eroded”.The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has asked the lawyer to assess how independent living is currently protected by law and whether “additional protections” are needed.The commission’s action emerged at an Independent Living Campaign Conference funded by Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC), and organised by DPAC and Inclusion London, with support from members of the Reclaiming Our Futures Alliance (ROFA).Ellen Clifford, a member of DPAC’s national steering group, who told the conference about the commission’s action, said afterwards that the move was “very positive” and a step towards one of the “key demands” made by disabled people: a right to independent living enshrined in UK law.An EHRC spokesman told Disability News Service: “We have concerns that rights to independent living are being eroded and the legal opinion we will get back will help inform our position.“We’ve asked the barrister to assess how independent living is currently protected by law and suggest whether additional protections are needed.”He said the advice would “help inform our position on a legal right to independent living”.Only last week, chancellor Philip Hammond failed to provide any new money for social care, or even mention it in his budget speech.Disabled campaigners are also furious that the government has side-lined the needs of working-age disabled people – and their user-led organisations – from next year’s social care green paper.Three months ago, the UN’s committee on the rights of persons with disabilities (CRPD) called on the UK government to recognise disabled people’s legal right to independent living.Stig Langvad, the CRPD member who led the examination of how the UK had implemented the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), said then that the UK was “going backwards” on independent living.Clifford said: “It is a very positive move by the EHRC to look at practical ways that can be used to take forward one of the key demands made by disabled people in our submissions under the UNCRPD examination process, which is to enshrine the right to independent living in domestic legislation.“It is a shame that the Law Commission and the Care and Support Alliance blocked attempts to get the wording of (UNCRPD’s) article 19 (on independent living) in statute when the Care Act was being developed and sadly disabled campaigners’ fears that the act’s well-being principle would not be adequate protection of our rights have been borne out.“As highlighted earlier this year when Luke Davey lost his appeal against Oxfordshire County Council’s decision to cut his support package following closure of the Independent Living Fund, judicial review under the Care Act is simply not an appropriate mechanism for challenging unfair assessments.“At the moment, disabled people have no means of redress against the removal of essential support and regression of fundamental human rights.“We hope that the EHRC fully involves and consults with disabled people as they explore legislative options to address this problem.”Mark Harrison (pictured at the conference, holding the microphone), chief executive of the Norfolk-based disabled people’s organisation Equal Lives and a member of Norfolk DPAC, called at Saturday’s conference for disabled people to set the agenda for reform, and define “what we need in order to live equal and independent lives”, including a legal right to independent living.He said: “What we are facing at the moment is a catastrophe. That is what the UN said but that is also what disabled people say, with local authorities cutting people’s budgets by 50, 60, 70 per cent, and many disabled people having their social care completely removed in the assessment process.”He said the only solution was a universal, legal right to independent living and a free, national independent living service, paid for from direct taxation, managed by central government, and led by disabled people.The Department of Health had refused to provide a statement from a spokesperson by noon today (Thursday) after being asked by DNS to comment on EHRC’s actions.
0% Mealmade’s webpage.Nobbs plans to open a sit-down restaurant at the front of the space soon, and is considering activities like cooking classes and meetups focused on healthy eating. He’s also thinking about ways to engage in the community there, possibly by setting aside tips or dedicate certain days to feed the homeless. For now, the inside retains a distinct McDonald’s appearance, but Mealmade started operating in the space at 2011 Mission St. on Monday.In late 2015, Jeff Nobbs founded Mealmade to fill the health food niche in San Francisco’s delivery food market. Nobbs moved to San Francisco after a two-year stint in China that followed the acquisition of his first business venture, an online coupon company. “I went on all the different food delivery websites, and there was still not anything I felt great eating,” Nobbs said. “Everything used factory farm meat. Even if it was locally sourced, it was a local factory farm.”So he hired a chef off of Craigslist and got cooking. Within a week, they were selling out. After a brief stint in SoMa, Mealmade operated for about a year in a small commercial kitchen in a building near 18th and York streets. Roughly 100 deliveries a day from the kitchen, in a residential neighborhood, drew complaints from neighbors, and Nobbs decided it was time to find a more commercial area. The new location has a few loading zone spaces out front where Mealmade encourages its delivery partner, Uber Eats, to park, as well as some access from the rear.With delivery clocking in at as little as 30 minutes and costing $5 a trip, options on the Mealmade menu include everything from four strips of bacon for $5, free-range chicken enchiladas in almond flour tortillas for $14, and turkey meatballs on almond flour or zucchini noodles for $14. That’s, of course, subject to change, as the menu is seasonal and new items are added daily, meaning nothing stays the same for more than a week.The chef behind that ever-changing menu is Scott Wiese, who started at Mealmade after being a customer. He has worked in various capacities at a number of San Francisco restaurants, including Enoteca, Starbelly, Orson and Firefly. “Our whole mission is to make this type of food that we create, that we think is much healthier, much better, and we want to make it available wherever you are,” Nobbs said.As of Monday, that includes right off the 16th and Mission BART station. A fryer that once churned out fast-food potato fries will now be producing sweet potato fries made with organic, sustainably sourced palm oil. After being shuttered for two years, the site of an erstwhile McDonald’s on Mission Street near 16th Street has become an all gluten-free catering service called Mealmade, with options for paleo, keto, vegan and other health-conscious eaters. “The irony is not lost on us there,” said Mealmade founder Jeff Nobbs. After touring the space with his chef, “We both walked out and just started laughing.”The equipment that McDonald’s left behind will be put to good use, but some adjustments were needed. The giant walk-in freezer and smaller fridge had to swap uses since Mealmade uses far fewer frozen ingredients than fresh. The “Filet-o-fish” and “Big Mac Patties” labels inside also weren’t relevant anymore. Tags: 16th Street BART • Business • food Share this: FacebookTwitterRedditemail,0%
