How many eggs is it okay to eat in a week?

    I’m an egg addict. Despite the fact that “become a stellar cook” makes it onto my list of New Year’s resolutions year after year, life (and a dinky New York City kitchen) has a way of trumping my best intentions.

Tourists injured in Egypt bus blast

Mohamed el-Mandouh, who witnessed the blast, said he heard a very loud explosion while sitting in traffic nearby. Images showing a damaged bus with its windows blown out and what looked to be injured tourists, some covered in blood, have been circulated on social media. In December, three Vietnamese tourists and an Egyptian guide were killed and at least 10 others injured when a roadside bomb hit their to...
