    Bill Penzey, the controversial owner of Penzey’s Spices, emailed his customers on Thursday to inform them he’s been selling bad chicken soup base that needs to be recalled. He wrote: "If you have chicken soup base from us please check your jar’s best by dates to see if yours has been recalled. The lot numbers are: 00139, 01839, 01049, SEP0820VAN, and OCT1420VAN. These were sold from 3.16.19 onward. If you have one of these jars, don’t use it and see the instructions below for your refund.

    There was an obvious need for the term “Trump Derangement Syndrome” shortly after the president was elected because there had to be some way to explain the extreme and unconnected-to-reality claims being made by the president’s critics. One critic was Joe Biden, who called him an illegitimate president despite his resounding Electoral College victory over Hillary Clinton. But now TDS has reached a new height. CNN is reporting on a study that suggests President Trump’s election caused an increase in premature births. Not all premature births. Just those for Latina women. The study published Friday in the medical journal JAMA...

    Unemployment for workers without bachelor’s degrees fell to the lowest rate on record in May, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data released Friday. The extremely low joblessness for less-educated workers is a sign that the decadelong expansion is benefiting economically vulnerable people and is reaching workers at at the margins of the labor force. The unemployment rate for workers over the age of 25 without four-year degrees fell to 3.4%, the lowest in records extending back to 1992, just barely beating out the marks set in the dot-com boom. The unemployment figures are adjusted for seasonal variation.

    President Trump’s trip to Japan started with a bang – a magnitude-5.1 earthquake centered near the golf course where he and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe are set to play golf Sunday. The temblor, which rattled Tokyo just hours before Trump’s arrival, briefly halted nearby bullet trains, but did not derail the leaders’ plans for their first meeting of the four-day visit, which will take place at the Mobara Country Club in Chiba. Later, the leaders will attend a championship sumo wrestling match, where Trump will award the “President’s Cup” to the winner. The trophy is 5 feet tall and weighs...

    When China’s president Xi Jinping presided over the country’s rubber stamp parliament last year, he scrapped term limits to consolidate power and spouted rhetoric about the country’s juggernaut status. To the world, he looked an unstoppable strong man. This year, Mr Xi will stride into the Great Hall of the People in far tougher times – the economy is seeing its poorest economic growth in nearly three decades, hampered by a protracted trade war with the US. Beijing is also seeing the first signs of a backlash over its 'Belt and Road' plan - an infrastructure-led plan intended to boost...

    Rep. Dan Crenshaw questioned Monday whether the trip to Puerto Rico by congressional Democrats was a good decision amid the deadlock on border security. About 30 lawmakers traveled to Puerto Rico -- with their families and lobbyists -- for a winter retreat over the weekend despite the partial government shutdown. "It sounds like they had a lot of fun. They've also been talking a lot about the plight that federal workers see themselves in," Crenshaw said on The Story. "They're not wrong about that, but if we're gonna talk about that then I don't know if these excursions to Puerto...

    “I’d rather see the Democrats come back from their vacation and act,” Trump told Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro. “They’re not acting, and they’re the ones that are holding it up. It would take me 15 minutes to get a deal done, and everybody could go back to work...But I’d like to see them act responsibly, and they’re not acting responsibly, and that’s it. We could be — I’m in the White House, and most of them are in different locations. They’re watching a certain musical in a very nice location and frankly, it’s ridiculous. The whole thing is...

    President Trump is working around the clock during the government shutdown trying to negotiate with Pelosi and Schumer to secure border wall funding. The Democrats however, are partying at a beach resort in Puerto Rico on day 22 of the government shutdown. The Democrats don’t care about the 800,000 federal workers who are currently not receiving a paycheck. Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was spotted hanging out with a bikini-clad “colleague” on the beach in Puerto Rico three weeks into the shutdown without a care in the world. The Hispanic Caucus of liberal Democrats is holding their retreat at a posh...

    More than 900,000 cubic yards of cheddar, American and Swiss currently sit in cold storage across the United States, enough cheese to form a wheel the size of the U.S. Capitol building. The excess is the biggest the country has seen since the government started keeping track a century ago, and it's 16 percent larger than the cheese surplus of 2016 when the government offered to buy up $20 million worth of excess cheese... "Part of it is changes in the domestic use of that milk." Another factor is trade — "a self-inflicted wound," Novakovic says. And there is growing...

Police say they arrested 31-year-old Paul Anthony Menchaca on September 6 at his home, near Val Vista Drive and Williams Field Road. Menchaca reportedly posed as "Amy" and hired a caregiver to bathe and change the diapers of her son with Down syndrome. The first victim later reported to police that she assisted Menchaca with diaper changes and baths on 30 occasions over the summer. These happened at various locations in the East Valley. A second...

    A longtime College of Southern Nevada sociology professor is facing felony gun charges in connection with an on-campus shooting on the second day of classes. Mark J. Bird was charged last month with discharging a gun within a prohibited structure, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property, court records show. He was found bleeding from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his arm about 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 28 outside a bathroom in the Charleston campus K building.

    The mystery illness that struck several employees at the US embassy in Cuba appears to have hit some US diplomats in China. The State Department says they have evacuated some employees and their families from our consulate in Guangzhou, China after one diplomat was sent home with symptoms eerily similar to the sickness that caused the US government to recall more than half or our embassy staff in Havana.  NBCNews: Heather Nauert, the State Department's spokeswoman, said "several" consulate employees had returned to the United States from China for further evaluation after they were screened as part of a task...

    North Korean officials have sought meetings with Republican analysts in Washington in an effort to better understand President Trump. The Washington Post reported Tuesday that North Korean government officials have been reaching out to Asia experts with GOP ties since before the recent bout of threats between Trump and Pyongyang broke out. “Their no. 1 concern is Trump," one person familiar with North Korea's outreach told the Post. "They can’t figure him out." In all, Pyongyang has requests out to seven organizations that have helped arrange and host meetings between North Korean officials and Americans in the past.

    Donald Trump signed away Obama-era flood standards just weeks before Hurricane Harvey hit Texas in a bid to get infrastructure projects approved more quickly. The rule signed by former president Barack Obama in 2015 had not yet come into effect but aimed to make infrastructure more resilient to the effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels and flooding. Those who backed Obama’s rules believed they would make people safer by putting roads, bridges and other infrastructure on safer ground, NPR reported, but Trump rescinded the rule several weeks ago in an attempt to speed up the time it...

    ‘I mean, this is not hard’ The Democratic mayor of Charlottesville, Va., Michael Signer, is pinning blame directly on President Trump for the white nationalist protest and related violence that occurred in his city this weekend. The blame for these events, he said, falls "right at the doorstep of the White House and the people around the president." On Sunday he appeared on CNN's State of the Union and accused Trump of intentionally courting white nationalists. Here's a transcript: TAPPER: You said you place blame for these terrifying events -- quote -- "right at the doorstep of the White House...

    Al Gore thinks the weather has been out of the Book of Revelation, while Time and ABC News have reported that Antarctica is melting very quickly. Now, itÂ’s not (via NASA):The melt rate of West Antarctica's Thwaites Glacier is an important concern, because this glacier alone is currently responsible for about 1 percent of global sea level rise. A new NASA study finds that Thwaites' ice loss will continue, but not quite as rapidly as previous studies have estimated.The new study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, finds that numerical models used in previous studies have overestimated how rapidly...

    Hillary Clinton launched an all-out assault on Donald Trump Wednesday, claiming he must have 'guided' Russian efforts to keep her out of the White House. Openly saying that she believed he had 'colluded' with Russia, she made an astonishing series of claims about the presidential election, including claiming that the 'vast majority' of news about her on Facebook was 'fake'. She even cited 'Pizzagate', claiming that claims she was involved in a child sex-trafficking network in a Washington D.C. restaurant had helped swing 'low information voters'. Clinton spoke at a tech conference in Silicon Valley to an audience which applauded...
