The party outside the Holyoke Center, complete with Oggi’s pizza, hot apple cider, and musical performances by the co-ed a cappella group the Harvard LowKeys, was more than a festive way to kick off the season. It was also a reminder of Harvard’s ties to the local community, even when making a holiday shopping list.Dozens of staff, faculty, and students — along with local business owners and Harvard President Drew Faust — turned out at Forbes Plaza on Thursday (Dec. 2) to kick off Crimson Shops Local, an annual effort by the University and the Harvard Square Business Association (HSBA) to encourage shopping nearby this season. The event also featured discounts to Harvard Square restaurants, retailers, and other businesses.From their morning coffee to their evening errands, many members of the Harvard community patronize local businesses almost every day. But holiday sales are crucial for many retailers’ survival, especially in Harvard Square, where 80 percent of businesses are locally owned and independent, said Denise Jillson, HSBA executive director.“People understand that Harvard Square is such a unique place and that we have to care for it, especially in these hard economic times,” Jillson said.Thursday’s event, sponsored by Harvard Public Affairs and Communications, Harvard Campus Services, and the HSBA, was designed to remind the University community how Harvard can help local businesses thrive.“If we combine the purchasing power of Harvard students, faculty, and staff, we can further boost our local economy, support local jobs and people, and help independent and locally owned stores and restaurants to succeed in challenging times,” said Christine Heenan, Harvard’s vice president of public affairs and communications.The HSBA estimates that Harvard Square merchants draw about 40 percent of their business from people who work and study in the area. Harvard student spending alone contributes $289 million annually to the local economy, according to Heenan.For the second straight year, Faust came out to do some local shopping herself, after listening to Christmas carols sung by the LowKeys.“The Square is so important — it’s where we live,” Faust said of Harvard’s connection to the business community. “It’s a privilege to be located here.”Local businesses “contribute to making this a very vibrant community, and a place where people want to come shop and visit,” she said. They also keep Harvard Square and the surrounding campus a bustling and safe public space, she added.Faust wandered into Black Ink, a Boston-based boutique of “unexpected necessities” that opened its Brattle Street location nine years ago.Susan Corcoran, the store’s owner, said holiday business appears to have picked up from the past two years, when recession-weary shoppers spent less during the winter season.“There’s a little more optimism,” she said.The store was packed with shoppers, including Faust, who vacillated in the toy aisle before purchasing a puzzle for her 2-year-old nephew. (“I save all my decisions for being president,” she said jokingly.)Faust then headed next door to Cardullo’s Gourmet Shoppe, the specialty food store that’s home to the Square’s oldest deli, where she purchased some locally made Taza chocolate bars for her husband.“It’s a great place to do some shopping,” Faust said. “I’ll be back again.”Mark Cardullo, the family business’ owner, said he welcomes Harvard and the HSBA’s support during the uncertain holiday season, when just one bad storm can throw off the store’s sales numbers.“We definitely rely on the holiday sales,” he said. “It’s amazing that we’re still here after 60 years with no parking. We just rely on people walking by, essentially, and stopping in.”Many of those casual customers are Harvard students. International students often come in looking for specialty foods from their home countries. (“If they request it and we can find it, we’ll get it in stock,” he said.) And it doesn’t hurt that Cardullo’s accepts Crimson Cash.The store even advertises in Harvard Magazine, Cardullo said, because so many alumni have come back over the years looking for the sandwiches they ate as undergraduates.“We embrace the University and their growth,” Cardullo said. “They’ve been a good partner to us.”In addition to the Crimson Shops Local event, other holiday events will take place in Harvard Square during December.

Beef eaters like juicy, tender steaks. But to enjoy steaks, you often have to take the fat with the good.Dean Pringle has two ways to get steaks leaner without sacrificing tenderness. Both are based on an enzyme system that regulates the muscle mass of beef cattle.The calpain system, which is also in humans, tears down the proteins in muscle to allow new proteins to rebuild the muscle.”All the time we’re alive, our muscle mass is being degraded and rebuilt,” said Pringle, an animal scientist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.To get that lean, tender steak, all you have to do is manipulate this enzyme system, he said.Tender FatMeat with fat deposited within the steak is “marbled.” It’s tenderer than steaks with the fat in a layer around the outside. The less marbled, the tougher the steak.The calpain system remains active after death and continues to break down the protein in the muscle. That’s why the beef industry ages meat after slaughter. The common practice increases flavor and tenderness.Beef is aged in two ways: The dry way is to hang the meat in a temperature-regulated cooler with exposure to air. The wet way is to vacuum-package and refrigerate it in its juices for shipping.Most meat sold in grocery stores has been aged three days to three months.”Retail beef has more variation in aging time, depending on if the consumer is buying that product,” he said. “If there’s really high demand, the meat will be moved through the meat case faster and be aged for a shorter period of time.”Most restaurants, however, require at least 21 days of aging, some as high as 28 days or more, he said.But even with the aging process, it’s hard to maintain consistency in tenderness.Calcium FueledThe calpain enzyme system is fueled, so to speak, by calcium. The more calcium in the muscle, the more active this system becomes and the more degradation takes place and the more tender the meat.Pringle injected a calcium solution directly into the muscle of slaughtered cattle. This seems to work well in tenderizing the meat.”Depending on the level of calcium, you can reach a 14-day aging point in 24 hours,” he said. This can put tender meat into the marketplace faster.You can also get that extra calcium into the meat by feeding cattle large doses of vitamin D a few days before slaughter, he said. Vitamin D helps release the calcium deposits in bones into the blood stream, which then go into the muscle and energize the enzyme system.Tough DrawbacksBut there are drawbacks to each tenderizing method.”The calcium injections can have some negative effect on flavor,” he said. But adding beef flavor and salt to the injection can overcome the off flavor.Also, the meat has to be labeled as having been injected with calcium. But this shouldn’t be a problem. Many common consumer goods are “fortified with calcium.” The injections are no different, he said.The industry injects meat now with a mixture of salt and phosphate. This does tenderize it, but not as much as the calcium injections.Large quantities of vitamin D can suppress cattle’s appetites. Feedlot owners don’t like this. The decreased feeding reduces the weight and available meat on the animal.Marketing EdgePringle’s research could help Southeastern cattle producers gain a marketing edge. The Brahman cattle breed is common in Southeastern herds. This breed can handle the heat, bugs and general Southeastern climate better than other beef cattle. But it’s known to have tougher pieces of meat.These tenderizing techniques work in Brahman cattle and could help Southern producers who want to raise these cattle.”We could get to the point where we’re producing a Southeasten guaranteed-tender beef product that’s more consistent and leaner,” he said.

Haesley Cush said it could be a good time to buy second hand units.There is genuinely good value on the market right now and history could show that buying now is one of the best moves an investor could make or it could show something different.But one thing is for sure, no one person or industry group can change a market, we all wish we could. A market gets influenced by supply and demand, funding restrictions, population, infrastructure changes, employment and that all leads to confidence.With my crystal ball currently in the shop it’s hard to predict the future, but my read on right now is this.If you can hold off selling a property in an area with an over supply, then wait, and if you can buy a property in an area reported as good value, then buy.My mate and I shared a vino and, I feel, left with a new appreciation for the other parties industry.Firstly, it was heartwarming to see a developer so concerned about protecting his previous purchasers and I hope he saw that agents work to get their clients the maximum price in any market but sometimes based on the market that maximum price is less than what they paid. Many experts believe there won’t be price growth in the second hand unit market for a few years.I WAS having dinner at Teneriffe’s much loved Italian restaurant Beccofino’s when I bumped into a mate of mine.My mate is a developer and our conversation swung to apartment prices and the good results he has been achieving in his new building.But while he was exhilarated with the results coming from his new building he was gravely concerned about the prices being recorded for resale apartments in the local area.Our conversation started to get meaty as we discussed the current market and market values.He felt that anyone selling a second hand unit in this market was begging for a flogging and really any agent who was selling them should be dealt the same fate.Despite this brash statement. We both agreed that now was not the right time to be selling an apartment and that likely it would be at least three years before the resale market would start to see growth.More from news02:37Purchasers snap up every residence in the $40 million Siarn Palm Beach North2 hours agoNew apartments released at idyllic retirement community Samford Grove Presented by But the part we couldn’t agree on was the reality that not all sellers will wait for an increase. Some people will, some people can’t as others just don’t want to. For market value to even be recorded it means owners are choosing to accept the offers on the table.
