Salvadoran castaway now terrified of the sea

The Salvadoran fisherman who survived 13 months in the Pacific is now terrified of his once-beloved sea and too mentally drained to leave his hospital for now, a psychiatrist said Thursday. Doctors who have seen Jose Salvador Alvarenga since he returned to El Salvador on Tuesday say he is in remarkable physical shape but that he needs psychological attention following his ordeal. Alvarenga, 37, returned to El Salvador on Tuesday, two weeks after emerging in the Marshall Islands following a 12,500-kilometer (8,000-mile) journey in a seven-meter (24-foot) fiberglass boat.

Dairy farmers, restaurant owners, say 'cheese' with new class of mozzarella

OTTAWA - Canada's dairy farmers have changed the rules they use to classify milk that goes into making mozzarella cheese. And that could result in cheaper fresh-made pizzas for consumers across the country. The new milk class, to take effect June 1, is expected to result in lower costs of Canadian-made mozzarella for restaurants that prepare and cook pizzas on site. The move could also slow or halt the erosion of domestic cheese sales to pizza restaurants.
