Why do people hate eating goat meat?

Whatever the reason, everyone has some foods they just cannot or will not eat such as snails, anchovies or pigs feet.  Food preferences are nothing new because different cultures eat different foods due to food availability or particular taste. Before goat meat was found on the menu at every trendy restaurant, it was on the plate of African and Middle Eastern families for centuries. 

Some people equate goat meat to eating sweet bread. Goat meat inspires a particular gag like reflex in people just from the idea of eating the meat. There is usually no issue on the texture of goat meat because the texture is similar to the texture of beef but with less fat.

Most issues with eating goat meat come from the smell. Some people think goat meat smells disgusting and has absolutely no place in the kitchen, some people have never tried goat meat and because of the strong gamey scent will never overcome their olfactory senses and taste goat meat.

Nevertheless, for most people in North America goats are kept more as pets than as food. We would like to believe that our taste buds are more developed and our food world is unlimited.  However, most people eat the same thing every day. When you go to a restaurant you have a favorite meal you order, each time you go you tell yourself I'm not going to order the same thing today but you wind up doing so.

But for some people, it's a matter of expense since goat meat is not a cheap cut of meat. In North America, chicken rules the supermarket. Chicken is extremely affordable and has been a part of America's diet for centuries with as many recipes as there are people in America. People are used to eating chicken so that's the reason why they eat a lot of chicken people, are not used to eating goat, therefore goat meat is not a popular meat.

And that is a shame because goat meat is not your grandmother's goat meat, the goat industry has evolved producing mild-flavored goat meat. When slow-cooked or pan-fried goat meat is tender. So when you hear the word goat, don’t think of the old Billy goat absent-mindedly chewing on a tin can with a long white beard or you will never fall in love with the most widely eaten and versatile red meat in the world, goat.

Goat meat is the most popular red meat in the world.

Charging Cell Phones in Rural Africa

The simple task of charging a cell phone is no simple matter in rural African villages far from an electric grid.
With the advent of tiny rooftop solar panels electricity could be accessible to millions.
African governments are struggling to meet to electric needs of the poorest of the poor living in rural areas. 

Living off-grid may be a lifestyle choice to some and a fact of everyday living to the poorest of the poor. However, tiny rooftop solar panels and high-efficiency LED lights across the African continent could provide enough electricity to charge cell phones. 

Cell phones are vital for people in rural areas with no access to banks in order to send and receive money, access medical care and stay in contact with family and friends.
What does Off-Grid Mean? Off the grid (off-grid) means creating your own self-sufficient environment and being able to operate completely independently of all trad…

Nature Holds Many Secrets | Hurricanes, Angry African Ancestors

Eastern coasts of Caribbean, United States, and South America, are in danger of being blasted by hurricanes wind and rain during hurricane season from June through November. But, why?  

The scientific reason why is because of Africa’s Sahara desert dust storms and the transition of thunderstorms off the west coast of Africa. The waters in the North Atlantic Ocean are typically at their warmest while the Sahara is at its hottest from July through October, so the chances of a hurricane are highest during these months.
Hurricanes are gigantic weather systems using convection, the movement of hot and cold air, to create dangerous storms. They are rotating heat engines powered by the warmth of tropical waters having three main parts, the eye, the eyewall, and rainbands. 

Hurricanes cannot form just anywhere in the world due to the need for hot and humid air. They normally form close to the equator and move west or northwest. Hurricane Alley is a stretch of warm water through the Atlantic Ocea…
