Cooking Sous Vide

When it comes to timing when cooking sous vide, it tends to be more forgiving than other method of cooking.  The traditional way of cooking is to provide at least 15 minutes on every half inch of the thickness of your pork.  This will result in tender, melt in your mouth pork.

 

  1. Preheat the precision cooker to 60 degrees C, let the water achieve the desired temperature before adding your Flodins Omega-3 Pork.
  2. Add seasoning to your Flodins Omega-3 Pork and bag it. Use a zipper lock or vacuum seal bag in order to prevent the juices from spilling.  If you are using other aromatic ingredients, make sure the bag is not too crowded.
  3. Drop the bag in the water of the precision cooker.  If it sinks, then your bag is sealed properly.
  4. After cooking it at around 1-4 hours (based on the thickness) remove it from the bag and discard the other ingredients
  5. Cook it in a traditional way on a cooking pan.  Flip it and baste it until you achieved a perfect golden brown.

 

Finally, slice your Flodins Omega-3 Pork and serve it to your family.  They will surely love the tender and juicy taste of the meat.

 

Workaround Option #1

  1. Preheat oven to 80 degrees C.
  2. Add seasoning to your Flodins Omega-3 Pork and bag it. Use a vacuum seal bag in order to prevent the juices from spilling.  If you are using other aromatic ingredients, make sure the bag is not too crowded.
  3. After cooking it at around 1-4 hours (based on the thickness) remove it from the bag and discard the other ingredients
  4. Cook it in a traditional way on a cooking pan.  Flip it and baste it until you achieved a perfect golden brown. Slice your Flodins Omega-3 Pork and serve.

 

Workaround Option #2

  1. Preheat oven to 80 degrees C.
  2. Add seasoning to your Flodins Omega-3 Pork and cook in open or closed pot in the oven. It will not provide the perfect sous vide result, but it will still provide a tender and juicy end result.
  3. After cooking it at around 1-4 hours (based on the thickness) remove it from the oven and discard the other ingredients
  4. Cook it in a traditional way on a cooking pan.  Flip it and baste it until you achieved a perfect golden brown. Slice your Flodins Omega-3 Pork and serve.

Decriminalization of Sex Work is the Key to Success of HIV Programs

July 20, 2016

 

HIV Advocates is a program designated to raise HIV awareness and aims to share concise news, developments as well as the movements of human rights as they constantly battle the terrible condition that is HIV. The program has been established back in 1990’s, and it has certainly come a long way as the recent developments of the pharmaceutical industry have allowed people who have this terrible HIV condition to live a lot longer. In any case, the HIV Advocates program is going to be highlighting the role that the decriminalization of sex work is going to have on the success of different HIV programs.

1

The cases of sex workers facing severe discrimination and being denied much needed medical assistance for the proper treatment of sexually transmitted infections are without a doubt countless. The truth is that this is mainly due to the fact that sex workers still have an illegal status which pretty much allows discrimination. Furthermore, it attributes to other negative social tendencies such as severe social isolation, stigmatization of the sex workers and much more. This is something that’s going to have an overly negative effect on the entire community. This is due to the fact that once the police officers confiscate the condoms of sex workers; they are going to be forced to resort to unprotected sex which is going to lead to a potential transmittance of other diseases. This is going to raise the overall rate of newly infected HIV positive members of society.

However, the first steps toward decriminalization of sex workers have been taken by the Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, who successfully launched a Sex Worker HIV Plan which is designated to battle against this negative social tendency. If the plan is brought to an end and completion this is going to have a huge success for the proper implementation of HIV Programs such as the HIV Advocates. It is something which acknowledges that sex workers have the rights to dignity, to life as well as to health services. They are also going to get the much needed protection from the legal system which is also quite essential.

The truth is that unless the sex work is properly decriminalized HIV programs are doomed to fail because there is no merit for them to stand on. They can only advocate the rights that sex workers should be entitled to and protest against them not having them, but apart from that, there is not much they can accomplish. The HIV Plan has set out to change that, and it might be the first attempt to do so properly.
