Other dairy products than milk and cheese include butter, yogurt, ice cream and more. Byproducts from dairy farms are even used for nonfood purposes.

Warriors Win NBA Finals

The Golden State Warriors won their fourth NBA championship in eight seasons last Thursday night. The Warriors took down the Boston Celtics in a 103-90 Game 6 road win to take the series 4-2. This year’s championship for the Warriors was the franchise’s seventh overall. Something about the Warriors' title this year seemed more impressive than the last three they have won since 2015. The Warriors have faced many ups and downs over the past three years, including multiple season-ending injuries to star shooting guard Klay Thompson, losing superstar Kevin Durant in free agency, and struggling to be a championship-caliber team for the past few years. Many thought that this adversity in Golden State meant that the Warriors dynasty was slowly coming to an end. This championship proved that the Warriors dynasty is still present and that Steph Curry still has what it takes to lead a team to a title, even at the age of 34 years old. Curry has been the face of the franchise in Golden State for the last decade. Steph had led the Warriors to their three previous championships, but had never won the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award, until this season’s title. In this year’s NBA Finals, Steph Curry averaged 31.2 points per game, a career high in his six NBA Finals appearances.   READ MORE...
