Coutte says the advantages of sorghum are that in much of France it does not need to be irrigated, requires no pesticides and needs only a third of the fertilizer that wheat requires. It's not a miracle solution but it is a solution which, among many others, makes it possible to improve things, to consume less plant-protection products, to consume less fertilizer and above all preserve groundwater and water resources. But sorghum isn't totally immune to drought.
The Trump Organization's chief financial officer is coming close to reaching a plea deal in a case investigating whether he funneled off-the-books income to himself and other executives at the company, but the potential deal reportedly does not bring prosecutors any closer to their main target: former President Trump. The New York Times reported Monday, citing two people with knowledge, that Allen Weisselberg and his lawyers met with a judge and that a hearing is scheduled on Thursday in the case, pointing to a possible agreement being reached by then. A potential deal might mean Weisselberg faces a far shorter sentence of five months in prison, a person familiar with the matter told the Times.
Part of the EU's new strategy for the Asia-Pacific is focused on improving maritime security and ensuring safe passage through sea lanes, and several European nations have sent naval assets to the region for maneuvers this year. As China has grown more assertive in the region, the United States, Britain and others have also made it increasingly a priority. Germany sent the frigate Bayern to the region on a nearly seven-month deployment that wound up earlier this year, the first time a German warship had been in the Indo-Pacific for nearly two decades.
Extreme heat belt' According to First Street, the most severe shift in local temperatures is found in Miami-Dade county in Florida where the seven hottest days, currently at 103°F, will increase to 34 days at that same temperature by 2053. Increasing temperatures are broadly discussed in yearly averages, but the focus should be on the extension of the extreme tail events expected in a given year,” said Matthew Eby, founder and CEO of First Street Foundation. We need to be prepared for the inevitable, that a quarter of the country will soon fall inside the extreme heat belt with temperatures exceeding 125°F and the results will be dire.

TAIPEI (Reuters) -Taiwan accused China of exaggeration on Tuesday after the Chinese military published footage of the strategically located Penghu islands, where there is a major Taiwanese air base, saying it was not true Chinese forces had come near the islands.

The Chinese military unit responsible for the area adjacent to Taiwan, the People's Liberation Army's Eastern Theatre Command, released on Monday video of the Penghu islands, apparently taken by a Chinese air force aircraft.
In a recent interview with Russian state media outlet TASS, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's North American Department, Aleksandr Darichev, said that in the event the U.S. designates Russia a state sponsor of terrorism, it would represent “a point of no return” in relations between the two countries. Speaking on behalf of the country that ruthlessly invaded its smaller neighbor and is continually being accused of human rights violations and serious war crimes, Darichev shamelessly claimed on Saturday that the West, led by the United States, “has trampled upon international law and absolute taboos in diplomatic practice.

The notorious author of thrillers like Carrie and The Shining spoke out in a revealing new interview with the Sunday Times, in which he called former President Donald Trump "a horrible president" and a "horrible person." "I think he actually engaged in criminal behavior and, certainly, I felt that he was a sociopath who tried to overturn the American democracy not out of any political wish of his own but because he could not admit that he had lost," said King, 74. The author previously called out Trump publicly back in 2020, when he criticized the president and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for their initial response to the coronavirus pandemic.

I'm talking to a father and his son about how Donald Trump is in charge of the military right now. And these fringe ideas are being codified by a guy like Donald Trump and a bunch of cowards who don't have the guts to stand up to him. He speaks to Americans and then he sends them away from sources that could maybe give them a broader perspective and just into the cesspool of the internet … It's melting [their] brains.

John Oliver said Afghanistan wasn't doing well under U.S. occupation ― yet the situation got even worse when American troops left one year ago and the Taliban took over.

Whether you happen to live under a rock or, like the producer of the video shown here, get all your news from memes and car blogs (Hi, Matt!), you may not be aware that Death Valley experienced some uncharacteristically extreme weather earlier this month, bringing with it record-shattering flooding and all of the headaches that come with it, including wrecked infrastructure. YouTuber SuperfastMatt apparently decided he'd stock up his modified Toyota 4Runner and go check it out for himself en route to some salt flat shenanigans at Bonneville. "I've done a lot of off-roading, but I've never done it on a road," he said at the beginning of the video, and while what followed was nothing insurmountable for his well-equipped 4Runner, he encountered many a stranded and struggling motorist along the road through the park on his way northward from the entrance near Darwin, CA.
“Like it or not, inside American politics, you’re on one side or the other. There is no in between.”
“Were a centrist coalition to arise in service of ‘bipartisan’ policy objectives, it would shift the political center of gravity.”
“Purported constituents for a centrist third party aren’t as large a group as is often imagined and aren’t really centrists, either.”
“A successful third party is one that integrates itself or its program into one of the two major parties.”
“Favoritism for party candidates is a tough mountain to climb … Americans prefer to vote for a candidate they believe can win.”
