Central New York tailgate recipes: A lot of people choose sides
Football fans are accustomed to choosing sides.

Our recent search for great Central New York recipes for pre- or post-game tailgating generated several ideas for tailgating side dishes, snacks or appetizers.

tailgate flags

Some came from our readers, like the Mexican Corn from Brian Gentile of Mattydale, while others were contributed by professionals, such as the Jalapeno Jammers from sous chef Andrew Nowak of the Season's Harvest Restaurant at Turning Stone Resort Casino.

We also got recipes for a flatbread appetizer, a chicken wing dip and some "sweet and sassy" wings -- which could be a side dish or a main course.

To round things out, we found a recipe for a real tailgate classic: Wisconsin-style beer brats. Food is just part of tailgating, of course. Some of the commenters on our post seeking recipes got into a lively discussion of the pros and cons of Syracuse University tailgate scene, which starts Saturday with the season's first home game, at 4 p.m. vs. Wagner.

Tasty tailgating: Bring flavor on game day
I’m married to a retired football coach, and although he’s not actively coaching the sport anymore, he will ALWAYS be a football coach -- football heart and soul."

So, you can imagine what it’s like living with my coach. I will say he is not obsessed with the game.

We don’t have 100 television channels dedicated to sports, and we don’t have to watch every single football game. But believe me, we watch our share of football.

I love football, too, but I am not nearly as knowledgeable as my best friend Janna, whom Bill calls on a regular basis to talk “football.”

Watching a football game is so much more fun when sharing the excitement with friends and family.

It makes the event much more of a celebration if a tailgate party is involved.

I had never been to a serious tailgate party until a few years ago.

4 Healthy Foods for Tailgate Parties
Tailgate parties can be a marathon of chowing down, from the moment you put on your face paint and set up your gear until long after the game ends. But if you're not mindful of what you're eating, you'll be paying for it all week long. Here are some suggestions to keep things fun without slowing you down.

What's a tailgate without some hot sauce? For an easy, healthy version of buffalo wings, grill bite-sized pieces of marinated chicken on individual skewers. To please your whole crowd try different marinades, including hot sauce, barbeque sauce, and Thai peanut sauce. The grilled chicken will provide protein to keep you full throughout the day.

Every tailgate needs a dip. I like to make mine with plain Greek yogurt. It's a healthy alternative to sour cream and it provides the same tart taste. This recipe from Bon Appetit magazine is always a big hit! Serve the dip with a mix of carrots, red and green peppers, and some whole wheat or rice crackers. It never hurts to serve vegetables at your tailgate, not only in the dip, but as a pairing for other tailgate food.

Rather than purchase a couple of hoagies, take a stab at making your own wraps. Cut them into single-serving pieces so everyone can try a few different kinds. Start with a base of whole wheat wraps and get creative with your fill-ins. Some of my favorites include grilled chicken and pesto, turkey and avocado, veggie and hummus, and your standard ham and cheese.

Tailgating Recipes to Die For
To football fans, fall football Sundays (and Saturdays, for collegefans) have a certain "taste" about them. For some they are full of ooey, gooey, cheesy dips and for others they are packed with spicy wings or barbecued delights. But keeping it fresh on and off the field each week can be a huge hassle.

Tailgate safely with food
Tailgating and football season go hand in hand. Excitement and hospitality abound during football/tailgating season.

Homecoming 2011 tailgating and parade

Following a few food safety rules can keep the fun and excitement going and foodborne illnesses at bay.

Keeping food safe at a tailgate gathering requires the same food handling practices as picnicking outdoors because a refrigerator and running water are probably not available.

Include lots of clean utensils for preparing and serving the safely cooked food. In addition to a grill and fuel for cooking food, pack a food thermometer to be sure the meat and poultry reach a high enough temperature to destroy any harmful bacteria that may be present.

Keeping food at a safe temperature between home, store or restaurant, and the tailgate location helps prevent foodborne illness. Follow these tips from USDA to ensure that your food stays safe.

• Carry cold perishable food such as raw hamburger patties, sausages and chicken in an insulted cooler packed with several inches of ice, frozen gel packs or containers of ice. 
• Place an appliance thermometer in the cooler so you can check to be sure the food stays at 40 degrees or below.
• When packing the cooler for an outing, be sure raw meat and poultry are wrapped securely. Use a separate cooler for raw meats.

Development On 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' Was A Mess, And Gearbox Might Have Lied About It
  Aliens Colonial Marines screenshots
By most accounts, “Aliens: Colonial Marines” was not a good game. We concluded our thorough drubbing by flatly explaining that “even the most forgiving fan of the series, even the most ardent shooter fanatic should really pass … because there is absolutely nothing here of value.”

Since the game’s release, concerns have been raised about “Aliens’” development (to put it lightly). The game was developed by Gearbox with (depending on who you ask) varying amounts of help from TimeGate studios, a Houston-based studio known for its work on the “F.E.A.R.” franchise and, more recently, “Section 8.” There seem to be some discrepancies about which group developed what, but the fact remains that not only was “Aliens: Colonial Marines” a bad game, but that its entire development was a hot mess.

Let's break the timeline after the jump.

Vernon Offers Early Retirement Buyout Plan to Employees
Some city employees in Vernon will be retiring early this year, opting to take advantage of an early retirement program approved by city officials.

The city council approved approximately $1.1 million per year for the next five years to fund the Public Agency Retirement System (PARS) Supplementary Retirement Plan, an early retirement incentive program, in hopes of reducing the city’s budget deficit for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.

Through the supplemental program, employees will receive 8 percent of their final base pay in addition to their retirement benefits and a retirement medical plan that was enhanced to include dependants and a stipend.

With 35 employees voluntarily retiring to take advantage of the incentive, the plan is expected to give the city a net savings of $1.9 million this year and $8.1 million over the next five years, according to Teresa McAllister, Vernon’s director of human resources.

Title: Maggie Q Gets Naked For PETA, Asks People To 'Go Veg'

"Nikita" star Maggie Q has stripped for a cause close to her heart. The actress reveals all in a new People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) campaign poster aimed at convincing people to eliminate meat products from their diet.

The edgy new PETA billboard reads, "Fight Climate Change With Diet Change. Go Veg" and features the vegan actress naked with her body painted like planet earth.

The poster debuted above the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles on Thursday and will remain there for one month.

Maggie Q told WENN, "There's so many issues tied to the meat industry. I mean, social, environmental, humanitarian - all of them. I know that when I'm eating that I'm not hurting the planet, I'm not hurting other people on this planet, I'm not hurting animals... and I'm not hurting nature."

Title: Kate Upton piling on Notre Dame too … and the Jets

It's not a good night to be Notre Dame. Not only are the Fighting Irish getting blasted on the field by Alabama in the BCS championship game, they're getting clowned on Twitter too.

Kate Upton knows her sports. She's been on the cover of Sports Illustrated (the swimsuit issue, but still). She's dating Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander. She does the Dougie at NBA games.

Shakespeare and Wordsworth boost the brain, new research reveals
Scientists, psychologists and English academics at Liverpool University have found that reading the works of the Bard and other classical writers has a beneficial effect on the mind, catches the reader’s attention and triggers moments of self-reflection.

Using scanners, they monitored the brain activity of volunteers as they read works by William Shakespeare, William Wordsworth, T.S Eliot and others.

They then “translated” the texts into more “straightforward”, modern language and again monitored the readers’ brains as they read the words.

Scans showed that the more “challenging” prose and poetry set off far more electrical activity in the brain than the more pedestrian versions.

Scientists were able to study the brain activity as it responded to each word and record how it “lit up” as the readers encountered unusual words, surprising phrases or difficult sentence structure.

British Study Links High Intake of Salt to Social Inequalities
The research, published in the BMJ Open journal, looked at the geographical distribution of habitual dietary salt intake in the UK and its association with manual occupations and educational attainments, both indicators of socio-economic position and key determinants of health.

The scientists used the British National Diet and Nutrition Survey – a national representative sample of 2,105 men and women aged 19-64 years living in the UK. Salt intake was assessed with two independent methods: a seven-day dietary record and the ‘gold standard’ 24-h urine collections for sodium determination – direct marker of salt intake.

The results show salt intake is significantly higher in those with low educational attainment and in manual occupations, when the effects of geographical variations are stripped out – people living in Scotland had higher salt intake than those in England and Wales.

“These results are important as they explain in part why people of low socio-economic background are more likely to develop high blood pressure and to suffer disproportionately from strokes, heart attacks and renal failure,” said study senior author Prof Francesco Cappuccio of the WHO Collaborating Center.

The rich world's economy: The gift that goes on giving
THE holiday season is a time for expansive thoughts, and not just about waistlines. It allows people time to step back from the daily grind and think about how they could do things differently. Has lack of imagination blinded them to simple solutions? With a little effort, could they make 2013 a lot better?

For the rich world’s governments, the answer is yes. We offer three ways to improve confidence and increase growth in what otherwise looks like being a pretty bleak year. Regular readers will not be astonished to hear that all three involve trade liberalisation. This is, indeed, a theme we have returned to with some frequency since this newspaper was set up in 1843 to oppose Britain’s protectionist Corn Laws. But the gains to be had from sluggish rich countries opening their borders to each other’s goods and services look enticing. The world is less integrated than most people realise (see article). And trade also offers a chance for liberal democracies to re-establish their credentials as the world’s guides towards prosperity.

Giving A Wii U This Christmas? Nintendo Wants You To Update It First
One of the best things about getting new hardware for Christmas is the rush of unboxing it. Soaking up the smells, opening up the bags, being the first to put fingerprints on the thing. It really makes you feel like you’re about to use something new.

It’s a pity then that Nintendo is having to advise people to skip this if there’s a Wii U under the tree.

Because the console’s initial update is such an important and time-consuming one, Nintendo of America is recommending that the person giving a Wii U should first take it out of the box, plug it in, use it and update it themselves before handing it over.

The Best Times to Buy Clothing
If you’re a clothes horse – or even if you’re not – you may have noticed that the shirts, pants, sweaters, and dresses you want probably cost more than they did a year ago.

In fact, the Consumer Price Index report released last month showed a 2.7% increase in apparel from last September to this one. With the Christmas shopping season right around the corner, that’s bad news — but there are optimal times to buy clothing. Follow these guidelines and you can save a lot of money.

Report: NHLPA will not decertify
When the NFL and NBA went through their lockouts last year, one word that came up often with each league’s players’ association was “decertification.” Decertifying the union means disbanding and drastically changing the outlook of negotiations.

According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, members of the NHLPA did inquire about doing the same at a recent union conference call but had the notion explained and turned down. From Brooks:

"The players were told opting for decertification would not merely represent a legal technicality, it would in fact mean the players would no longer be negotiating as a unified group; indeed, decertification would mean the union would be disbanded.

There was little appetite to adopt that route, though talk of decertification — which presumably would be followed by filing of antitrust action in the U.S and filings in Canada, where labor laws differ throughout the provinces — will inevitably become louder and a more acceptable option for the players if the league continues to stonewall through next month.

The NFL and NBA were able to get through their tough talks and save their seasons after the players’ unions decertified. In both sports’ situations, decertification helped spur talks along."
