Fridges across Europe and the U.S. are filled with almond drinks, oat milk and plant-based meat substitutes. So where's the imitation cheese? Until it starts to taste more like the real thing, it's likely to stay out of the kitchen. The global vegan cheese market was worth $1.9 billion last year, according to Future Market Insights. That's just a tiny fraction of the dairy-alternatives industry and the $121 billion in real cheese. Much of it is mozzarella or cheddar-used in cooking where the taste and feel can be disguised, rather than enjoyed on its own or accompanied by a nice chardonnay. A new breed of entrepreneurs is trying to change that by ridding fake cheese of its rubbery reputation and getting in on the boom in plant-based burgers, milk, yogurt and ice cream. One of them is New Roots, headquartered at the foot of the Swiss Alps-the home of fondue and raclette. Founded only four years ago, the 15-employee company now supplies some 80 tons of imitation camembert, cream cheese … [Read more...] about Vegan cheese waits for its big moment.

Divisions among Senate Republicans are muddying their strategy for a potential impeachment trial. As lawmakers await any articles from the House, they’re throwing out their own ideas on what the Senate proceeding should look like. But Republicans disagree over the length of a trial and who should be asked to testify — two issues that will need to be worked out as part of negotiations on the rules of the trial.

Part Three: The policeLAPD Det. Shannon Geaney reports daily to what looks like anarchy, bedlam, madness.She works Hollywood, and her beat is homelessness.On a recent morning, her first call of the day sent her to a small park near Selma Avenue Elementary School, where a man known as Papa Smurf had overdosed on opioids. A nurse from the nearby LGBT Center was summoned before Geaney, and she had administered two shots of naloxone, but Papa Smurf wasn’t responding.

There were to be no sudden reincarnations, nor appearances of wannabe heirs, their faces swathed in bandages. Downton Abbey ended its six-season soapy gallop at its stateliest, and with its many loose ends tied up as neatly as a child’s shoelaces on their first day of school. It was also a victory lap: the good ended well, the bad ended repentant or outclassed, and Dame Maggie Smith had not only a final arsenal of zingers, but even the last spoken line—its wry ambivalence of time and change perhaps speaking volumes for the show’s creator and sole writer, Julian Fellowes. Change—the chief theme of the show; familial, social, historical—was everywhere: characters and time itself were, as the show had emphasized from its first moment as its primary preoccupation, moving on.
