Supported by ByLisa Lerer Jan. 24, 2019 Hi. Welcome to On Politics, your guide to the day in national politics. I’m Lisa Lerer, your host. For the first two years of his presidency, it seemed like Donald Trump could, as he famously put it during his campaign, shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose his voters. Republican majorities in the House and the Senate negotiated his agenda on Capitol Hill. The majority leader, Mitch McConnell, and House Speaker Paul Ryan protected him from serious Congressional investigations, and passed a sweeping tax bill, the president’s major legislative accomplishment. G.O.P. lawmakers largely lived in fear of angering the president’s still-loyal base if they challenged him. Times have … [Read more...] about On Politics With Lisa Lerer: Is Trump Losing the Fight?

Viet Nam News Gia Lộc HCM CITY— The fourth industrial revolution is giving rise to “smart” factories where robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, and data analytics are used to link production and logistics processes and make manufacturing more intelligent, efficient and sustainable, but their number is limited in Việt Nam. Nguyễn Văn Phi Vân, technical key account director of Tetra Pak Vietnam Joint Stock Company, said: “The fourth industrial revolution brings potential value to resolve challenges which manufacturers of beverages and foods have faced.” The challenges include consumers’ increasing demand for food safety and hygiene and traceability, while manufacturers want to improve productivity and cut costs, he said.

It’s one example of a marginalization of science in shaping federal policy. ByCoral Davenport June 9, 2018 WASHINGTON — As President Trump prepares to meet Kim Jong-un of North Korea to negotiate denuclearization, a challenge that has bedeviled the world for years, he is doing so without the help of a White House science adviser or senior counselor trained in nuclear physics. Mr. Trump is the first president since 1941 not to name a science adviser, a position created during World War II to guide the Oval Office on technical matters ranging from nuclear warfare to global pandemics. “You need to have an empowered senior science adviser at the table,” said R. Nicholas Burns, who led negotiations with … [Read more...] about In the Trump Administration, Science Is Unwelcome. So Is Advice.
In our series Work In Progress, a partnership with professional networking site LinkedIn, we explore the future of jobs and issues facing the American workforce. In this installment, we look at a program that aims to lure college-educated workers back to their home towns. Federal statistics show the unemployment rate, which currently sits at 3.9 percent, reached a 17-year low in April. For many people, the chance to leave home, go away to school and establish a career someplace new is part of the American dream, but for employers in those hometowns, watching the potential workforce walk away can be painful. Some places are doing their best to coax people back home and they're willing to pay money to do it. After being away from home for college and graduate school, Aaron Skinner is moving back to eastern Michigan. But that wasn't his original plan. "I was really looking at either staying in Atlanta or Grand Rapids," Skinner told CBS News' Don Dahler. "The east side of Michigan … [Read more...] about Small towns use financial incentives to lure young, educated workers back home
A few years ago, I was dining at a French restaurant. I ordered one of my favorites – a crock of French onion soup topped with a big crouton and Gruyere cheese. When it arrived, I eagerly dug in, only to find that something was extremely off about the taste. It was way too sweet!French onion soup is full of caramelized onions, which are cooked properly when they reach an even balance of sweetness and bitterness. Someone had definitely taken the onions off the heat too soon. It tasted like dessert onion soup. No thank you.At some point or another, we all bite into a dish that tastes off. Sometimes the reason is obvious; other times it’s harder to pinpoint the cause. We just know something doesn’t taste right, or perhaps it simply tastes boring.When you’re trying to prepare food from scratch at home and run into this issue, it can be very frustrating. More often than not, the key to correcting (and preventing) a dish that misses the mark is finding a harmonious … [Read more...] about What is umami anyway? A guide to cooking with flavor and spice.
