Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : April 18th 2015 Contents Many people have cut down significantly
on the amount of beef they consume, but
the issue isn t so much the quantity of beef
you consume, but the quality of the beef.
Try to select beef from New Zealand and
Australia rather than the United States because
in New Zealand and Australia there are more
organic and grass fed cattle and the farming
practices are very humane. This results in very
high quality beef.
If you are health conscious, there s no need
to omit beef altogether from your diet, simply
cut down on the portion size or incorporate
other ingredients like vegetables in your beef
recipes to reduce the quantity of beef you re
using and you ll find that you can have your
beef and eat it too!

Sony s hacking problems aren t over
Whistleblower site WikiLeaks on
Thursday put hundreds of thousands
of e-mails and documents from last
year s crippling cyberattack against
Sony Pictures Entertainment into a
searchable online archive. It s the lat-
est blow for the entertainment and
technology company struggling to get
past the attack, which the company
estimates caused millions in damage.
The Web site founded by Julian As-
sange said that its database includes
more than 170,000 emails from Sony
Pictures and a subsidiary, plus more
than 30,000 other documents.
Sony Pictures blasted WikiLeaks
for creating the archive, saying the
Web site was helping the hackers dis-
seminate stolen information.
"We vehemently disagree with
WikiLeaks assertion that this mate-
rial belongs in the public domain," the
company said in a statement.
But Assange said the documents
should be available to the public. Al-
though they had been online, it was in
a compressed format that wasn t eas-
ily searchable. (AP)
