What you should have learned at school: how to spot fake news

Every week, Perdeby takes a look at something you should have learned at school that would assist you in day to day life. This week, we take a look at how to determine if a news source is factual and legitimate.

“Fake news” has become a common term in recent months. Clickbait articles, usually on social media sites, have increasingly appeared and provided incorrect information regarding various news events. These articles sometimes take advantage of breaking news, where facts are difficult to immediately determine, and use sensational headlines to compel readers to follow the link. They also use controversial or sensational topics, such as celebrity scandals, to entice readers to read the article. Here are a few tips on how to determine if a news source is legitimate.

Perdeby experiences: making Rotis

REBECCA WOODROW

Every week Perdeby sends their journalists to experience something out of their comfort zones. This week Rebecca Woodrow decided to make rotis, a difficult and technical process.

Roti is a flatbread made with wheat flour. Flatbreads are found throughout the world from the Americas to South East Asia and accompany several dishes. Interesting versions includes a Sri Lankan recipe that uses coconut. In short, rotis are delicious and make life worth living.

I'm very good at eating rotis but I've never made them. Until Saturday.

Rotis are not for the lazy cook! You won't break a bone making them, but you will break a sweat. The process includes kneading dough, shaping it, keeping the little bundles of shaped dough cool by stashing them under a dampened dishcloth, flattening the pieces into a raw roti and buttering both sides while you flip and cook it on a hot pan. Essentially though, if you pay attention during the process and have a system going, disaster won't strike. You get into the groove somewhat (even if you are dealing with a hot pan and a delicate pancake that needs buttering).
