That was used as an example of his devotion to duty.The 33-year-old from Newcastle said he had been told to fire warning shots at looters only a week before the alleged incidents took place at Camp Bread Basket and a sergeant major had told him that any looters caught at the camp were given “a good kicking”.Asked whether he would have been prepared to hit somebody, he replied that “it goes against everything I had done beforehand on other operations”. He also served in Bosnia.The court martial was also told that he suffered a personal tragedy when his first wife, Ruth, died from deep vein thrombosis in April 1996.The hearing was told yesterday of Cpl Kenyon’s actions in defusing 70 to 80 crates of plastic explosives after he discovered them positioned near a recently captured enemy bridge. Cpl Kenyon, who was described in his army appraisals as “intelligent, reliable and conscientious”, said he served on the front line during the 1991 Gulf War and saw friends killed when their Warrior vehicle was fired upon by American forces in a “friendly- fire” attack. A BRITISH soldier accused of abusing Iraqi prisoners admitted yesterday that he received no training in how to deal with civilians – but explained some of the incidents as “a deterrent” to Iraqis.
Cpl Daniel Kenyon, 33, a Gulf War veteran, told a court martial in Germany that the measures in place at the “Camp Bread Basket” supply depot in Basra were unprofessional and said captured looters were beaten with sticks and placed in a barbed wire cage.
“If no fear is instilled into any sort of thief or rapist, whatever they may be, then they will just keep doing the same thing over and over again,” said the NCO who denies five charges of abusing Iraqi prisoners.Cpl Kenyon, who was just 17 when he enlisted in the military in 1989, was the first soldier to give evidence after another charge against a fellow defendant was dropped yesterday. “Just imagine going through a magazine and looking at an ad for pizza,” he said. “You wonder what it tastes like, so you rip a page out and eat it.”. The printer’s cartridges are loaded with fruit and vegetable concoctions instead of ink, and its “paper” is made of sheets of soybean and potato starch.Cantu, an advocate of the hi-tech kitchen, uses the machine to print tasty versions of images downloaded from the internet. Until he has filed patents, he is refusing to divulge how he modified the printer heads to write in vegetable juice, or recipes for his colourful “inks”.”All he will reveal is carrots, tomatoes and purple potatoes are involved,” said the New Scientist.He hopes to take the printer concept out of the kitchen and into the media by publishing edible ads.
He prints his menus the same way – so diners can enjoy them as an hors d’oeuvre or swirl pieces of them into their soup.Cantu told New Scientist magazine: “You can make an inkjet printer do just about anything.” But, like Willy Wonka, he is keeping his methods secret. When the artwork rolls out, he dips it in a powder made of soy sauce, sugar, vegetables or dehydrated sour cream, and then freezes or bakes the sheets. Likewise, Cantu’s printer can produce a variety of edible surprises. IT IS an idea that could have come straight out of Roald Dahl’s children’s story Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. A cordon-bleu chef has modified an inkjet printer to create edible paper dishes that can taste of anything from birthday cake to sushi.
Stepping into the shoes of Willy Wonka is Homaru Cantu, head chef at the Moto restaurant in Chicago.In Dahl’s surreal tale, Mr Wonka produces a chewing gum that tastes like a three-course meal. Other innovations Cantu plans to introduce include using a laser to cook steak and bake bread.He hopes to take the printer concept out of the kitchen and into the media by publishing edible ads.”Just imagine going through a magazine and looking at an ad for pizza,” he said.
