I work on building intelligent web applications to help people find and manage information.

I'm especially interested in information extraction and data mining, but I like working on the whole stack of a feature: from the analytics to the front-end.

comment Is there a cholesterol-free substitute for egg noodles?
Eggs don't contain LDL cholesterol. LDL stands for Low Density Lipoprotein: a collection of proteins in your blood that transport cholesterol and fats. Eggs contain cholesterol, as well as saturated fat, both of which tend to increase LDL in the blood.

comment How to clean and maintain cast iron lids
I don't use my cast iron dutch oven for anything but baking bread for this reason. Very frustrating. Maybe you could find a glass or stainless lid that fits the pot and use that for everything but baking. Eg ebay seems to have plenty of 10" pyrex lids available for relatively low prices.

comment How does boiling remove vitamin C from food?
The melting point of pure substances may be determined by putting it in a neutral atmosphere like helium. Many substances burn before they melt if in an oxygen atmosphere.
