BrailleNote hardware opens up Internet to Nelsen Middle School student

The machine is talking. “Hello,” it says. “My name is ... Brian.” But the machine is not Brian. Brian is the boy typing the machine’s words. “I am in 8 grade at Nelsen,” Brian writes. “I am in... number sign ... 8 grade ... at Nelsen,” the machine repeats. Imagine the halting, nasal voice of a robot. That’s what this machine sounds like.

FOOD AND WINE: Spicy chicken takes thought, a lighter white

Often when people ask me what to pair with what they are having for dinner, they name the main meat of the meal – and not how it is prepared or what spices or sauces may be used. Pairing a wine with a meat can be quite simple; pairing it to a recipe can be a bit more difficult. Chicken would have a list of wines that can go with it, but add a spicy recipe to the mix and you have a whole different list of wines. I would normally pair Riesling with spicy Asian foods, sauvignon blanc with spicy Mexican foods. But spicy chicken? That took some thought. In the end I felt that this meal required a lighter white, but not as light as the ones above, to hold up the chicken dish, and found Viognier to be a fantastic match!
