Chilaquiles

Chilaquiles from the Nahuatl word chīlāquilitl is a traditional Mexican dish consisting of corn tortillas cut in quarters and fried. Corn tortillas cut in quarters and fried are the basis of the dish. Green or red salsa is poured over the crisp tortilla triangles; the mixture is simmered until the tortilla starts softening. Pulled chicken is sometimes added to the mix, it is garnished with crema, crumbled queso fresco, raw onion rings and avocado slices. Chilaquiles can be served with refried beans, eggs and guacamole as side dish; as with many Mexican dishes and family variations are quite common. Chilaquiles are eaten at breakfast or brunch; this makes them a popular recipe to use leftover salsas. In central Mexico it is common for the tortilla chips to remain crisp. To achieve this, all ingredients except the salsa are placed on a plate and the salsa is poured at the last moment, seconds before serving. In Guadalajara, cazuelas are kept simmering filled with chilaquiles that become thick in texture similar to polenta.

In the state of Sinaloa, chilaquiles are sometimes prepared with cream. In the state of Tamaulipas, on the north-east side of the country, red tomato sauce is used. Recipes for chilaquiles have been found in a U. S. cookbook published in Encarnación Pinedo's El cocinero español. She included three recipes—one for chilaquiles tapatios a la mexicana, one for chilaquiles a la mexicana, one for chilaquiles con camarones secos.

Larry L. Memmott

Larry L. Memmott was Chargé d’Affaires of the U. S. Embassy in Bolivia, effective July 2012 until February 28, 2014, he found his biggest challenge in Bolivia to be establish a relationship with the Bolivian government to be one based on trust. Memmott became Deputy Chief of Mission at the Embassy in Kuwait on September 10, 2018 and took over leadership of Embassy Kuwait as Chargé d’affaires a.i. on October 5, 2019. While there, the Bolivian President, in his speeches, spoke of the United States “always in a derogatory negative tone” and proceeded to order the expulsion of USAID without consultation, it was Memmott’s responsibility to oversee their departure. Memmott was considered a dove in U. S. secret services circles. Washington decided to make “a tactical shift” and replace all Embassy personnel before Jefferson Brown arrived as interim business attaché; the business attaché is “The highest ranking official present in the country since President Evo Morales expelled Ambassador Philip Golberg in 2008, for engaging in subversive activity in conjunction with hard-line opposition forces in the city of Santa Cruz.

All indications point toward the replacement of the entire staff, giving greater weight to secret services and an increase in efforts to destabilize the Morales government, within the framework of a regional counter-offensive.“ Memmott began his Foreign Service career in 1987 with a Post in Bolivia. Memmott attended the University of Utah earning a Bachelor’s Degree in International Political and Economic Relations, he completed graduate work at the University of Chicago in economics

Deer in the Headlights game

Deer in the Headlights is a Front Porch Classics card game involving two or more players aged eight and up. The object of the game is to be the first player to discard their hand of cards in each round to tally the fewest points and win the game; the game is part of the University Game Corporation as of 2014 and can be found in many mainline department stores. Each game comes with two decks of custom cards, three wooden dice, an instruction manual. All 3 dice will be used in a game; each die includes a mix of specialized characters. The characters account for “special rolls” and are shown as a car, a running deer, or a deer in headlights; the number of the decks dealt out is up to the players. For instance, two players may choose to only deal out one deck. All of the cards in a deck must be dealt out. Jokers are discarded from the deck. Space must be made in the center of the playing space for the discarded cards to be placed, the play may begin; the object of the game is to be the first player to discard all of the cards in their hand to end the round.

Once a round has finished, the rest of the players count their scores by adding up the total value of the remaining cards in their hand. Each player's score is recorded on the scorecard; the game is concluded with the first player to reach 150 points – this player loses the game. The winner of the game is the player. All cards are added by their associated value. Aces are worth one point. Jacks and Kings are all worth ten points each. Players take; each player conducts their turn based on the card play associated with their roll. There are ten different variations of card; the Deer in the Headlights Instruction Manual states the following

Yukon

Yukon is the smallest and westernmost of Canada's three territories. It has the smallest population of any province or territory in Canada, with a population of 35,874 people. Whitehorse, the territorial capital and Yukon's only city, is the largest settlement in any of the three territories. Yukon was split from the Northwest Territories in 1898 and was named the Yukon Territory; the federal government's Yukon Act, which received royal assent on March 27, 2002, established Yukon as the territory's official name, though Yukon Territory is still popular in usage and Canada Post continues to use the territory's internationally approved postal abbreviation of YT. Though bilingual, the Yukon government recognizes First Nations languages. At 5,959 m, Yukon's Mount Logan, in Kluane National Park and Reserve, is the highest mountain in Canada and the second-highest on the North American continent. Most of Yukon has a subarctic climate, characterized by brief, warm summers; the Arctic Ocean coast has a tundra climate.

Notable rivers include the Yukon River, as well as the Pelly, Peel and Tatshenshini rivers. The territory is named after the longest river in Yukon; the name itself is from a contraction of the words in the Gwich'in phrase chųų gąįį han, which means white water river and refers to "the pale colour" of glacial runoff in the Yukon River. The territory is the approximate shape of a right triangle, bordering the U. S. state of Alaska to the west and northwest for 1,210 km along longitude 141° W, the Northwest Territories to the east and British Columbia to the south. Its northern coast is on the Beaufort Sea, its ragged eastern boundary follows the divide between the Yukon Basin and the Mackenzie River drainage basin to the east in the Mackenzie mountains. Most of the territory is in the watershed of the Yukon River; the southern Yukon is dotted with a large number of large and narrow glacier-fed alpine lakes, most of which flow into the Yukon River system. The larger lakes include Teslin Lake, Atlin Lake, Tagish Lake, Marsh Lake, Lake Laberge, Kusawa Lake and Kluane Lake.

Bennett Lake on the Klondike Gold Rush trail is a lake flowing into Nares Lake, with the greater part of its area within Yukon. Other watersheds in the territory include the Mackenzie River, the Peel Watershed and the Alsek–Tatshenshini, a number of rivers flowing directly into the Beaufort Sea; the two main Yukon rivers flowing into the Mackenzie in the Northwest Territories are the Liard River in the southeast and the Peel River and its tributaries in the northeast. Canada's highest point, Mount Logan, is in the territory's southwest. Mount Logan and a large part of Yukon's southwest are in Kluane National Park and Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other national parks include Ivvavik National Vuntut National Park in the north. Notable widespread tree species within Yukon are white spruce. Many trees are stunted because of severe climate. While the average winter temperature in Yukon is mild by Canadian arctic standards, no other place in North America gets as cold as Yukon during extreme cold snaps.

The temperature has dropped down to −60 °C three times, 1947, 1952, 1968. The most extreme cold snap occurred in February 1947 when the abandoned town of Snag dropped down to −63.0 °C. Unlike most of Canada where the most extreme heat waves occur in July and September, Yukon's extreme heat tends to occur in June and May. Yukon has recorded 36 °C three times; the first time was in June 1969 when Mayo recorded a temperature of 36.1 °C. 14 years this record was beaten when Forty Mile recorded 36 °C in May 1983. The old record was broken 21 years in June 2004 when the Mayo Road weather station, located just northwest of Whitehorse, recorded a temperature of 36.5 °C. Long before the arrival of Europeans and southern Yukon was populated by First Nations people, the area escaped glaciation. Sites of archeological significance in Yukon hold some of the earliest evidence of the presence of human habitation in North America; the sites safeguard the earliest First Nations of the Yukon. The volcanic eruption of Mount Churchill in 800 AD in what is now the U.

S. state of Alaska blanketed southern Yukon with a layer of ash which can still be seen along the Klondike Highway, which forms part of the oral tradition of First Nations peoples in Yukon and further south in Canada. Coastal and inland First Nations had extensive trading networks. European incursions into the area began early in the 19th century with the fur trade, followed by missionaries. By the 1870s and 1880s, gold miners began to arrive; this drove a population increase that justified the establishment of a police force, just in time for the start of the Klondike Gold Rush in 1897. The increased population coming with the gold rush led to the separation of the Yukon district from the Northwest Territories and the formation of the separate Yukon Territory in 1898; the 2016 census reported a Yukon population of 35,874, an increase of 5.8% from 2011. With a land area of 474,712.64 km2, it had a population density of 0.1/km2 in 2011. According to the 2006 Canada Census the majority of the territory's population was of European descent, although it has a significant population of First Nations communities across the territory.
