WASHINGTON — Members of Congress, staffers and other Capitol employees stood silently on the House steps Thursday and raised their hands in the air to protest the killing of unarmed black men by police.

They bowed their heads as Senate Chaplain Barry C. Black prayed, “Forgive us when we have failed to lift our voices for those who couldn’t speak or breathe for themselves” — emphasizing “breathe” in reference to Eric Garner, who died after a policeman grabbed him in a chokehold in New York.

“May we not forget that in our history injustice has often been maintained because good people failed to promptly act,” Black said, with well over 100 people standing behind him.

Guinness, for example, stores its yeast strain in liquid nitrogen vapour – at an undisclosed location.

Gearoid Cahill, a Guinness brewer, says that the firm takes many things into account to make the beer taste consistent. The water used in the production for Guinness is tested for levels of calcium as too much or too little can inhibit the enzymes that turn the malt’s starch into sugars. (Malt is simply cereal grain, which is germinated in water but stopped from further germination by being dried in hot air. The sugars that come out of the malt are what the yeast is able to turn into alcohol, among other substances, during fermentation.)
