TChandra - Transportation EPs Music Album Reviews

Perhaps familiar from being sampled by the Avalanches, this New York tween was an inspiring underground star in the early 1980s, a reputation confirmed by this archival collection.
When the Avalanches returned in 2016 after an absence of nearly two decades, a sampled koan lurked at the heart of “Subways,” their swooning comeback: “You walk on the subway/It moves around.” The voice belongs to Chandra Oppenheim, a veteran of the New York downtown scene who attended New York Dolls shows, rubbed elbows with Madonna, opened for Laurie Anderson, played the Mudd Club, staged performance art pieces at the Kitchen, and performed with her band on “Captain Kangaroo.” Not bad for a tween: Chandra was just 12 when she and her band of the same name cut “Subways” and three other songs for a now-coveted 1980 EP.

  • 14 large eggs straight from refrigerator

  1. Place up to 14 eggs in steaming rack in the Instant Pot. Add 1 cup water to inner pot.
  2. Set Instant Pot to manual pressure cook mode and set timer for 5 minutes. Set pressure release handle to Sealing. After cooking 5 minutes, allow pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes then turn pressure release handle to Venting to release the rest of the pressure.
  3. Remove eggs from Instant Pot and place in ice bath until cooled completely.
Don’t you hate trying to peel hard-boiled eggs and the shells won’t come off without tearing up the egg inside? Well, you won’t have that problem any more with this Instant Pot Hard-boiled Egg recipe!

Key to Success #1 – The Right Equipment
For the recipe, you’ll need an Instant Pot and an egg rack or the wire rack that came with your Instant Pot.

I have a 6-quart Instant Pot Duo and it’s the perfect size for my family of four. I hard-boiled 14 eggs in this size Instant Pot.

I also purchased a stackable egg steamer rack that holds 14 eggs. The one I have is made of wire but there are many varieties out there that are made of silicone or other materials.

You can also find combo Instant Pot accessory sets that contain steamer baskets, cake pans, trivets, egg bite molds, and more. I think these sets are great if you’re at all interested in experimenting with your Instant Pot. Just watch the size to make sure it will fit your Instant Pot model.

Key to Success #2 – The 5-5 Method
The 5-5 cooking method is pressure cooking for 5 minutes then letting the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes.

When pressure cooking in the Instant Pot, make sure you have enough liquid in the inner pot so that the pressure can build up. For this recipe, a cup of water is more than enough. The Instant Pot can build up pressure but your eggs are not sitting in water.

To allow the pressure to build up inside the Instant Pot, make sure the pressure release handle is set to Sealing.

The 5-minute cook time is started once the Instant Pot reaches full pressure so your actual cooking time will be longer than 5 minutes. It takes between 5 and 10 minutes for the Instant Pot to reach full pressure with this amount of food in it.

The Instant Pot will alert you when the 5-minute cook time has been completed. At that point, you’ll want to allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes. During these 5 minutes, your eggs will still be cooking so it’s a good idea to set a timer to make sure your eggs don’t over-cook.

After the pressure has released for 5 minutes, carefully turn the pressure release knob to Venting and allow the rest of the pressure to release.

Key to Success #3 – Give Eggs an Ice Bath
After the pressure has been released from the Instant Pot, the eggs need to stop cooking immediately. The best way to do that is to slip them into an ice bath. To make an ice bath, simply place several ice cubes into a pan of cold water.

Use a pot holder or a towel to remove the steaming hot eggs from the Instant Pot and slide them gently into the ice bath. This will stop the cooking process very quickly.

After the eggs have cooled down, peel them under running water then refrigerate immediately.

Bonus Tip! How to Center The Yolk in Hard-Boiled Eggs
Don’t you hate it when you make Hard-Boiled Eggs and the yolk sinks down to the bottom and creates a thin spot that is likely to break? I have a super simple tip for ensuring that the yolk is centered every time.

All you have to do is turn the eggs upside down in the carton at least 30 minutes before cooking. This will center the yolk in your Hard-Boiled Eggs.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

LG Gram 17 Review: Hands-on

LG’s Gram 17 was on display at CES 2019 and we got our hands on the ultra-thin, ultra-light device featuring a beautiful 17-inch display
Should I Buy The LG Gram 17?
The Gram 17 is an impressive bit of kit, but it is serving more of a niche audience than it perhaps appears.
A laptop with a display any bigger than 15 is perhaps approaching a point where it struggles to be called ‘portable’ due to it’s raw size. However, if that isn’t something that bothers you, the 17-inch display is fantastic for both working and watching your favourite films or series on.
Everything else aside the Gram is a beautiful, extremely light choice of laptop that manages to pack a lot of power and utility into an incredibly slim, slick package.
