Why we should tax meat that contains antibiotics
Makes sense to me. "The use of antibiotics in meat production is a major contributor to one of the biggest threats facing human health in the 21st century: antibiotic resistance. ... One way to tackle this would be to introduce a tax on meat produced with the use of antibiotics, to take account of our moral responsibility for the cost of our actions. And most meat eaters are responsible."
Trump Says He Offered China Better Trade Terms in Exchange for Help on North Korea
"Mr. Trump said he told his Chinese counterpart he believed Beijing could easily take care of the North Korea threat. Mr. Xi then explained the history of China and Korea, Mr. Trump said. 'After listening for 10 minutes, I realized it’s not so easy,' Mr. Trump recounted. 'I felt pretty strongly that they had a tremendous power' over North Korea,” he said. 'But it’s not what you would think.'"
Pierre Brassau
"a chimpanzee and the subject of a 1964 hoax perpetrated by Åke “Dacke” Axelsson, a journalist at the Swedish tabloid Göteborgs-Tidningen. Axelsson came up with the idea of exhibiting a series of paintings made by a non-human primate, under the presumption that they were the work of a previously unknown human French artist named 'Pierre Brassau', in order to test whether critics could tell the difference between true avant-garde modern art and the work of a chimpanzee. ... Critics praised the works, with Rolf Anderberg of the Göteborgs-Posten writing, 'Brassau paints with powerful strokes, but also with clear determination. His brush strokes twist with furious fastidiousness. Pierre is an artist who performs with the delicacy of a ballet dancer.' After the hoax was revealed, Rolf Anderberg insisted that Peter/Pierre’s work was 'still the best painting in the exhibition.'"
