zirconium: black pearl pepper plant at Cheekwood (black pearl pepper)
From this past Sunday's NYT Book Review:

"The genius of you Americans," the Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser teasingly told a senior C.I.A. official, Miles A. Copeland Jr., in the late 1950s, "is that you never made clear-cut stupid moves, only complicated stupid moves."

From the In-2014-I-Plan-to-Fry-More-Tofu Department, via the NYT's Mark Bittman:

That "good" news you may have read last week about the Food and Drug Administration's curbing antibiotics in animal feed may not be so good after all. In fact, it appears that the F.D.A. has once again refused to do all it could to protect public health.

[On a related note: How to Make Tofu Really Freaking Delicious. I tried this a couple of weeks ago and the salt soak indeed seemed to help things along.]

The survival time of chocolates on hospital wards: covert observational study. The responses are also a treat.

The Goldilocks Guide to Caramels [that sound of hammer meeting sheet glass accidental toffee this morning? Yep, that was me on my front porch...]

I came across this yesterday while trying to figure out where I'd stashed an accordion file. It's the first acceptance letter I received from a professional literary journal:
