This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 6 As a brand, Asian carp have two big problems: The name strikes many as both racially insensitive and decidedly unpalatable -- a trash fish. How about some "copi" instead? In a marketing event Wednesday, Illinois officials announced the focus-group-approved name for the prolific invasive species. With the fresh consumer brand, they are seeking to gut the fish's numbers and reduce the looming ecological threat it poses to the Great Lakes. Soon, they hope, folks will be noshing on copi sliders and cooking up copi tacos, eating into the invader's population. " 'Copi' rose to the top. It's kind of fresh, maybe kind of Mediterranean," Kevin Irons, assistant fisheries chief at the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, said of the two-year name search. "Copi sounded like a fish." That's copi as in copious, which from an environmental perspective is the problem … [Read more...] about Asian carp threaten the Great Lakes. Will calling them ‘copi’ help?

Nshole stressed that Cardinal Pietro Parolin wasn't replacing Francis and that Congo was awaiting word from the Vatican for a new date for a papal visit.

WASHINGTON -- At the end of the first full Supreme Court term with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito in place, liberal Justice Stephen Breyer said he was amazed -- and not in a particularly good way -- what President George W. Bush's nominees to the bench had accomplished. "It is not often that so few have so quickly changed so much," Breyer said in June 2007 as he dissented from a decision striking school integration programs in two cities. But it was nothing like this week. With the three nominees of President Donald Trump in each majority, the Supreme Court put a conservative shine on a greater role for religion in public life, the Second Amendment's protection of gun rights against legislatures' concerns of violence and then the biggest of them all: the long-awaited overturning of Roe v.
