    An Idaho company that successfully brought genetically modified potatoes to the market announced an agreement Thursday to help a Watsonville-based plant breeding company grow strawberries they say will stay fresh longer and have a longer growing season. J.R. Simplot Company and Plant Sciences Inc., both privately-held companies, said they expect to launch the first commercially available, gene-edited strawberries within a few years. U.S. growers produced $2.2 billion in strawberries in 2020, mostly in California, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. But consumers discarded an estimated 35% of the crop due to spoilage. Simplot and Plant Sciences officials said genetically...

    Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) said during her 2018 Senate campaign that she wants to be the next “John McCain,” according to a report released Friday. Sinema, a moderate-leaning Democrat who frequently bucks her own party, told her advisers in 2018 that she wants to emulate “John McCain.” The Arizona Democrat lauded the former Arizona Senate Republican and one-time presidential candidate, calling him a “legend” and “my personal hero.” Sinema even copied some of McCain’s most dramatic acts in the Senate, including when he bucked his own party.

John McCain’s (R-AZ) widow, said on Tuesday broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that she is supporting former Vice President Joe Biden because President Donald Trump has a “lack of empathy” and “kindness.” McCain said, “Well, I think Joe Biden’s purpose tonight is to talk directly to the American people and let them know where he stands and what he believes and where he feels he can lead this country if elected president. He’s up against an opponent that has a very special relationship with the truth. So I think as long as he focuses on what...

    Apples originally evolved in the wild to entice ancient megafauna to disperse their seeds; more recently, humans began spreading the trees along the Silk Road with other familiar crops; dispersing the apple trees led to their domestication. Recent archaeological finds of ancient preserved apple seeds across Europe and West Asia combined with historical, paleontological, and recently published genetic data are presenting a fascinating new narrative for one of our most familiar fruits. In this study, Robert Spengler of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History traces the history of the apple from its wild origins, noting that...
