- Despite health risks, adventurous food lovers are trying raw chicken in Japan
By Michelle Yan - Wednesday Sep 13, 2017
Raw chicken should never be consumed... but people are still trying it. The chicken sashimi dish is called 'torisashi'.

Six months ago, Amazon caused fear for the long-term future of grocery store jobs with Amazon Go, its first experimental cashier-less grocery store.
But it was just one store. Amazon didn't have much of a presence in the real world. It's something to worry about but maybe not immediately.
On Friday, those concerns suddenly become a lot more tangible when Amazon announced that it had agreed to buy Whole Foods for $13.7 billion.
The acquisition solidifies Amazon's growing dominance in the grocery market, from delivery through Amazon Fresh to plans to revolutionize in-person grocery shopping. Owning Whole Foods will ingratiate Amazon even more into every aspect of its customers' lives—and in this case, the lives of especially high-income shoppers.
