What they actually wrote there, that cooking a chunk of meat at 45 C for 20 hours will make it into a 'hotbed' of bacteria - if it had a few now it has millions... Even it was super-fresh meat... So they advise to use it only with certain temperatures (over 55) and with minimum times (that depends)...

45 degrees is unhealthy for most becteria; that's why we do yeast in luke-warm water before adding it to the dough. You could heat it up more and pasteurize it, but that will not kill everything. Even if you sterilize it, it could still become contaminated later on.
The key here is washing your hands, often, and to keep food clean, cool and separated. Most salmonella is in the gut, and there could be a small colony on the outside of the meat. It's usually not throughout the entire meat; the surface area is the most risky one.
I used to cook all my meats until "over well done" for safety - destroying most flavor. Turns out you can eat some beef even raw (unless it has been sitting in the sun). The only thing I'm not allowed are stuff like oisters and such - something about a nono-virus? (Google doesn't recognize it, so I may be wrong again).

recent whatsapp convo with the kids: a few messages had comments about ducks (the animals, not any alternative / sound-alike ... long story, but really "duck" is the animal)
every time I type/tap the letters d u c while it suggests "duck" it always also suggests "f*ck"
I thought these [google] keyboards are supposed to be smart and remember what words you used recently, well in messaging I've never sent the f-word, ever. I know some things better not to write down... I say it plenty, but never messaged it.
why no family safe filter on outgoing?
why no family-safe filter on auto-correct?
(best would be default on and settable / overidable by recipient or per message).
for 's sake I'm messaging my kids, and while they can be annoying little shites this is not one of those times I want to be owned by auto-correct if typing in a hurry.
Probably because the "d" and "f" keys are right beside each other on a standard keyboard - so a "d/f swap" is a very high likelihood mistyping. And is a common word these days, it doesn't have the same impact it did on our parents.

I'm a bit of a river dweller too, my roots lie in the South-West river delta of the Netherlands near the river Schelde. I always liked to bike there and follow the river banks into Belgium near the city of Gent.
I'm with the Florida Trail Association and I'm responsible for a 32 mile section along the Suwannee River for the last 3 years. Which means I go out and clear the trail so hikers like me can have a clear path to hike. It's been an awesome job but this will be the first year there is no hurricane damage.

I forgot where I was going with this but I do know I love bacon!
Hmm, something about that makes me want to pitch a #7 silver/chartreuse floating Rapala on 6lb. line, for a bass or 5.
