News 1: Meat companies say: eat your veggies
Транскрипция
Meat companies are making it easier for you to eat your vegetables by blending them into burgers, meatballs and sausages. A new line of meat-and-veggie burgers and meatballs is introduced at grocery stores next month. Quest Foods is already selling a beef and pea protein patties as well as blended sausages. All are hoping to quell consumers' growing misgivings about meat and its impact on health and the environment. The United Nations called for reduced meat consumption last year, saying agriculture and food production was responsible for 37% of global greenhouse gas emissions. A recent Harvard study suggested that boosting consumption of red meat increases the risk of early death. "It's important that we don't have a fear-based reaction to the change but look at the underlying needs," said Quest Foods CEO. "People want changes – we provide them."
Лексика
blend - смешивать
grocery stores – продуктовые магазины
quell - успокаивать, остановить
misgivings – сомнения, опасения
greenhouse gas emissions – выбросы парниковых газов
boost – повышение
underlying – лежащий в основе

Snowfall rates could be quite intense with locally up to 4 inches per hour possible this morning. This will make any travel in the region extremely dangerous.
Heavy rain is also starting to spread down the coast with possible local flooding. Additionally, winds over 40 mph will be possible in parts of central and southern California as the storm slides into the region.
