They said that it is entirely out of character for him not to return home.Speaking to Pat Kenny on Newstalk, his wife Fran said the neighbours saw him put the bins out on Tuesday night.“Every night he made sure last few cups were washed and watched sci-fi on television and I would go upstairs and watch my programmes. I thought he was downstairs. I heard him in the bathroom, I heard him in the other bedroom , pottering, and I heard the bin going out and I thought he had gone back in to watch the television,” she said.His wife said that it wasn’t until about 11pm that they discovered he wasn’t in the house.“My grandson had come in from work and I said to him to bring granddad down his tablets and he said he wasn’t in the house,” she said, adding that they looked everywhere for him and then they panicked.She said that Tom doesn’t drink or smoke. ”It is very unusual,” she said.SightingsThere have been no sightings of Tom since his disappearance and his family are particularly concerned for his well-being as he has had health problems recently, having been hospitalised for emphysema.Tom has no history of memory loss, said his wife, tearfully adding: I just want him back… if he is listening, I want him back home.Gardaí have renewed their appeal for information from the public about his whereabouts.Kennedy is described as 5’3″/5’4″ and of slim build.

first_imgPourquoi le chocolat blanc est-il blanc ?Aussi délicieux (pour certains) que ces cousins le chocolat noir et le chocolat au lait, le chocolat blanc est pourtant un produit qui n’a de “chocolat” que le nom…Comment un produit qui se dit être “du chocolat” peut-il être en réalité blanc ? Créé avec du beurre de cacao (extrait de la fève du même nom), de la poudre de cacao (obtenue en broyant cette même fève desséchée) et du sucre, le chocolat en tablette tel que nous le connaissons ne peut normalement pas être naturellement d’une autre couleur que noir ou brun.À lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?Mais alors comment les fabricants s’y prennent-ils pour créer du chocolat blanc ? Tout simplement en supprimant de la recette la fameuse poudre de cacao qui donne sa couleur foncée à la confiserie. Le chocolat blanc est donc un assemblage de beurre de cacao, de lait et de sucre. Une origine qui remonte aux années 1930 Mis au point par Nestlé en Suisse dans les années 1930, ce chocolat à la robe couleur ivoire a été inventé à l’origine pour éviter de gâcher les surplus de beurre de cacao qui sortaient des usines. C’est précisément cette substance qui permet au chocolat de rester solide à température ambiante et qui lui permet également de fondre à la cuisson ou en bouche.Dans le cas du chocolat blanc, ce n’est cependant pas le beurre de cacao (désodorisé) qui donne son goût à la friandise, mais le lait en poudre. Enfin ce qu’il faut savoir, est que pour être qualifié de “chocolat noir”, un produit doit obligatoirement être composé d’au moins 35% de poudre de cacao. Le chocolat au lait en contient donc théoriquement moins (moins de 30%) tandis que dans le cas le chocolat blanc, il n’y en a aucune trace.Le 1 décembre 2018 à 09:00 • Guichaoua Virginielast_img read more
