Fresh fish only lasts two or three days after it is caught, but frozen fish “can last four to six months in the freezer and still contain the same health benefits,” revealed a registered dietitian. (Related: Fish oil lowers risk of breast cancer by 32 percent.)
Researchers from Norway are looking into new methods of handling, freezing, and thawing fish to ensure that people have access to high-quality fish all year round. Consumers can benefit from the new study, especially those who want to buy cheaper frozen fish. The study can also help determine how to lower the risk of parasites that can be found in raw fish.
Norwegian research company SINTEF has been running tests to observe the effects of different freezing and thawing methods on the quality and shelf-life of fish. The tests have determined three key factors that can help guarantee the quality of frozen fish.
First, the fish needs to be frozen as soon as they are caught on fishing boats. Second, the fish should remain frozen at a stable and low temperature for the entire time, without interruption, before it is thawed. Third, the thawing must take place right before the fish are sold.
The fish that went through these tests “were good for 10 days after thawing.” This means that the fish were “free of bacteria and the texture, color and consistency were of top quality when frozen correctly.”
Registered dietitian Tara Condell shared, “Health-wise, fish is just as nutritious frozen as it is fresh.” The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires fish sold in the U.S. to be flash frozen before it can be sold.
Flash freezing is an accelerated process that is used to freeze fish right after they are caught. The process uses ultra-low temperatures, usually around -20 degrees Fahrenheit, to freeze fish solid within seconds.
The FDA guideline ensures that consumers have a lower risk of contracting parasites since it often takes several days for fish to reach the stores. Condell also cautions shoppers to check their fish to make sure that it doesn’t have an unpleasant smell and ice burns. Always buy fish, whether fresh or frozen, from a quality supplier. Remember that regardless of when it was caught, when frozen and thawed properly, the fish you bought will retain its freshness.
Tips on storing fresh fish
When buying fresh fish, follow the steps below to store it properly:
- Remove the fish from its packaging.
- Rinse the fish in cold water and dry it with paper towels.
- Place the fish on a rack, and ensure they don’t touch or overlap.
- Place the rack with fish in a large container.
- Put crushed ice in the large container, but don’t let the ice touch the fish on the rack. Keep the ice right under the fish.
- Cover the container, rack, and fish with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then seal it tightly and refrigerate it.
- When storing the fish for more than a day, replace the ice once it melts and remove the water.
How to freeze fresh fish
Follow the steps below to freeze fish that you’re not going to eat right away:
- Remove the fish from its packaging.
- Rinse the fish in cold water and dry it with paper towels.
- Put the fish in freezer bags or containers, and label them properly.
- Store the bags in a freezer set at 0 degrees or colder.
- Thaw and prepare the fresh fish within two weeks for the best taste and nutrition. Thaw the fish in the coldest part of your refrigerator.

An ex-Secret Service agent is claiming that former Vice President Joe Biden engaged in “Weinstein-level” sexual assault and that he would walk around the VP residence late at night completely naked.
According to Big League Politics’ Cassandra Fairbanks, a Secret Service agent who spoke on condition of anonymity revealed that Biden “would mess with every single woman or teen,” and that a Christmas get-together at the VP’s house had to be canceled “because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend’s asses.”
He also said that the Service often had to protect female agents from him and that Biden was prone to parading around the VP residence late at night with no clothes on.
“I mean, Stark naked… Weinstein level stuff,” said the agent.
During one alleged incident in 2009, Biden cupped the breast of a Secret Service agent’s girlfriend during a photo, prompting the agent to shove Biden and almost hit him. The agent was subsequently suspended for a week, according to the source.
Men would often stand in front of female agents and Navy women or create false pretenses to have them leave the room just to get them away from Biden, according to the agent.
Best-selling author Ronald Kessler previously claimed in his book that Biden was fond of swimming naked and that female Secret Service agents found that “offensive”.
In a February 2015 article entitled What are we going to do about Creepy Uncle Joe Biden?, the Washington Post’s Alexandra Petri highlighted a number of incidents where Biden made women feel uncomfortable by getting close and touching them.
There are innumerable videos online that show Biden touching children and whispering into their ears. A thread tweeted by Richard Armande Mills on Monday highlights an alarming number of these incidents.

The world’s most wanted militant may still be alive, or not, since the Russians claim they killed him in an airstrike earlier this year.
A military media unit run by the Iran-backed Hezbollah said this week that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was spotted in the Syrian town of Abu Kamal, a town the group liberated this week.
Syria’s army declared victory over Islamic State on Thursday, saying its capture of the jihadists’ last town in the country marked the collapse of their three-year rule in the region. On Friday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Islamic State has taken back control of half of Albu Kamal.
Comment: the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, being a Western government-backed outfit tasked with spreading pro-ISIS propaganda is NOT to be trusted.
The sighting of the leader of ISIS happened during Hezbollah operations with Syrian forces, backed by the Russian Air Force.
The American-led coalition said that it does not have “any releasable information concerning the whereabouts” of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Comment: And they are, undoubtedly, not interested in knowing where he is (if alive) since ISIS has always been a proxy army in the pay of Western governments and their Saudi headchopper friends.
Now, speculation of Baghdadi’s whereabouts and whether or not he’s even alive has been around for months.
Russia claimed they killed the ISIS leader back in May during an airstrike in Raqqa.
The U.S. is offering a $25 million reward for information leading to his death or capture.
Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus confirmed that a drone downed by Israel over the Golan Heights on Saturday belonged to Syrian government forces, but disavowed claims that the aircraft was manufactured in Russia. “We have determined that it belonged to the Syrian regime. Earlier I said that this is a Russian-made UAV [unmanned aerial vehicle], but additional checks do not allow this to be asserted,” he told RIA Novosti. Conricus told Reuters that the downed drone was “a reconnaissance UAV and not an attack UAV and we are checking whether there is any connection to Iran and Hezbollah.” According to Israeli security officials, the drone operators deliberately attempted to fly the aircraft across the Israeli border, Channel 10 reported, as cited by the Times of Israel.
EUCLID – A man known for helping those who feel targeted by police, was allegedly the target of police brutality last week.
Damien Parker is known to many people in Euclid as a community activist.
On Friday night, he was placed under arrest as he pulled into his apartment complex.
As police approached his vehicle in an attempt to serve a warrant, Parker refused to get out of his car.
“I get out the car and what? These guys jump on me and shoot me, plant something in my car?” Parker said.
From the beginning of the dash cam video, you can hear tensions escalate before the struggle.
Punches being thrown while Parker was on the ground, but the documentation of the incident is different depending on who you ask.
“When you’ve spent the better part of the last two three months trying to intimidate somebody, harassing somebody and all the sudden expect them to cooperate with you and play nice for the camera, that’s not how it works,” Parker said.
The reason Parker was arrested, was one of the reasons police cited taking caution when approaching him in the first place: threats on Facebook.
He was charged with Aggravated Menacing for allegedly threatening another community activist via social media.
In the report, Euclid police explain that they knew who Parker was because of some of his Facebook videos containing “threats against police.”
“This is the same stuff that they said to the FBI,” Parker said. “The FBI reviewed it and said there were no threats.”
The report also mentioned that because of “his history of possessing firearms, his military training and his failure to comply, it was necessary to protect the public.”

The concept of past lives is nothing new. It’s often said that if you have an irrational fear, it’s the result of a bad experience in a past life. My mom has always had a fear of soldiers, and she’s wondered if stems from an experience during one of the World Wars.
Like so many things, the possibility that we have walked the Earth before is impossible to prove. But there are some people who have compounded even experts with their otherwise inexplicable knowledge of the past, or, as is now the case, space.
Twenty-one-year-old Boriska Kipriyanovich has baffled experts since he was a child. Despite never being exposed to the concept of alien civilizations by his parents, he’s constantly talked about them from an early age and that’s not the only thing that’s unique about him.
When the Russian native was just a few months old, he was able to speak, and at the age of two, he was able to competently read and write. His mom said that she knew he was special when he held his head up unassisted when he was just a few weeks old.
But what makes Kipriyanovich truly extraordinary is his claim that he lived on Mars in past life. He said that the Red Planet was ravaged by war when he lived there and went on to reveal that this war was the result of a nuclear disaster.
So if there’s any truth to his claims, why haven’t we encountered any Martians? Well, that’s because they supposedly live underground. Kipriyanovich has said that they are around seven feet tall and breathe using carbon dioxide instead of oxygen.
Kipriyanovich also added that Martians are extremely technologically advanced.
However, Kipriyanovich’s time on Earth has not been limited to his current life. He has said that he has visited before as he worked as a pilot on Mars, and the visit was the result of the Martian’s connections to the ancient Egyptians.
Whilst this claim might ostensibly sound far-fetched, the ancient Egyptians have also baffled modern scientists with their technology which, to this day, humanity is still unable to understand despite seemingly being a lot more advanced than they ever were.
Now Kipriyanovich has made an extraordinary claim about humanity’s future…
If there was a connection between the ancient Egyptians and aliens, it would certainly explain how they were able to defy even the greatest feats of modern engineering with their primitive tools to build their spectacular cities and pyramids.
One of the ancient Egyptian’s most impressive monuments is the Great Sphinx monument in Giza, and according to Kipriyanovich, life on Earth will change irrevocably when it is “unlocked” using a mechanism behind one of its ears.
Unfortunately, he has not given any further details about what exactly the opening of the sphinx will do.
Regardless of whether you are religious or not, it’s only natural to fear death to an extent. But because Kipriyanovich remembers his past life so vividly, he has no fear of the unknown. What’s more is that he’s also revealed that there are still Martians on Mars.
“No, I have no fear of death, for we live eternally,” he said. “There was a catastrophe on Mars where I lived. People like us still live there. There was a nuclear war between them. Everything burnt down. Only some of them survived. They built shelters and created new weapons.”
Kipriyanovich has also said that Martians are immortal and maintain eternal youth as they stop ageing when they are 35 years old.
The following video has amazed people for years, and even those who doubt Kipriyanovich’s claims can only be impressed by his ability to talk about such subjects in such great detail.
He was filmed as a young boy displaying his extraordinary knowledge about Mars and alien civilizations. The footage has fascinated experts who are unable to explain how a child of his age could possess such extensive knowledge about the subject.
Have you ever considered the possibility that you’ve had a past life? It turns out that there are a number of signs that could suggest you have…
If there’s any truth to my mom’s belief that her fear of soldiers is proof that she’s lived before, it could suggest that she died at the hands of them in a past life:
Well, I don’t know about you, but I’d rather not think about how I may or may not have met my fate in a previous life!
Frankfort, KY — Freedom of speech, in the land of the free, is not guaranteed. Despite the wording of the First Amendment, claiming that “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech,” there are countless laws across the country designed to do exactly that. However, even when there aren’t archaic anti-speech laws on the books, police will all too often deprive people of their freedom — for practicing their freedom and expressing themselves.
Flipping the bird has also been ruled to be free speech many times over. In fact, in a 14-page opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit addressed the specific action of flipping off cops when it ruled that the “ancient gesture of insult is not the basis for a reasonable suspicion of a traffic violation or impending criminal activity.”
However, we’ve seen citizens pepper-sprayed, assaulted, and arrested for this act of free speech. And, as the video below shows, police could not care less about protecting your free speech if it’s something they don’t like.
It has been clearly established that all Americans have the right to record the police as well as flip them off. For an officer of the law to remain willingly ignorant of this precedent is at best, dereliction of duty, and at worst, unlawful deprivation of rights. Either way, this officer was in the wrong.
The video, submitted to us by the person who took it, who TFTP will refer to as Steve, shows what happens when police officers feel they are being disrespected. Steve runs the YouTube channel I Says News Network. He says he named it that because “the government is all about ‘do as I Says, not as I do.’”
As the video begins, Steve is being pulled over by an officer, who he identifies as Kentucky State Trooper M. Dennis.
Trooper Dennis had no probable cause to pull over Steve. However, because he was ignorant of the law, he incorrectly thought that it was illegal to disrespect police officers. He was also clearly ignorant of the First Amendment which guarantees the right of a citizen to film cops in public.
“Turn it off!” Dennis says, issuing an unlawful order to Steve.
“What am I being stopped for?” asks Steve.
“Turn it off!” Dennis says again. “I didn’t give you my consent,” Dennis asserts again—incorrectly.
For the first 30 seconds of the stop, the trooper is more interested in Steve legally filming him than he is with articulating the reason for the stop.
“Am I being detained,” Steve asks finally getting the cop’s attention away from trying to stifle his first amendment rights.
“Yes you are,” replies the trooper.
“For what?” asks Steve.
“Because of your disrespect,” replies Dennis.
“You can pull someone over for being disrespectful?” asks Steve.
“Yes, I can,” replies the Trooper.
“What KRS is that?” Steve asks, referring to the Kentucky Revised Statutes.
“It’s called respect of the law!” asserts the trooper. “Disrespect,” he says.
TFTP searched through the Kentucky Revised Statutes and we found no such law. However, as the trooper walked away, he told Steve that he could be charged with “Menacing” for the disrespect and subsequent filming. We looked up that law within KRS as well and Steve comes nowhere close to breaking it.
“A person is guilty of menacing when he intentionally places another person in
reasonable apprehension of imminent physical injury,” states KRS 508.050. At no time was trooper Dennis ever facing imminent physical injury.
According to Steve, this video happened in January 2016. When he called the Kentucky State Trooper’s office to report trooper M. Dennis, a major in the office told him that Dennis did nothing wrong because his officers have earned respect. Steve was then subsequently summoned to court over the incident. However, the trooper never showed up and now, after he’s been cleared, Steve has released the video.
The Kentucky State Trooper’s office would do well to reexamine their definition of ‘respect.’ According to Webster’s dictionary, respect is defined as “a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.”
Respect is earned and given voluntarily. When it is demanded through the barrel of a gun, this respect becomes tyranny.
