Public health officials are now telling consumers to avoid all types of romaine lettuce from southwest Arizona because of an E. coli outbreak linked to the vegetable that has spread to at least 16 states and sickened at least 60 people, including eight inmates at an Alaska prison. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that new information about the illnesses in Alaska led them to expand a warning beyond chopped romaine to include any type of romaine lettuce, including whole heads and hearts of romaine. Although the exact source hasn´t been identified, federal health officials have said information indicates

Be careful LDotters. Fortunately I didn´t buy any romaine on my last trip to the grocery. I was in the mood for other veggies.

Those of us here who eat salads won´t skip a beat. We will continue with spinach and other good greens, until the ´all clear´ is given and we can go back to including romaine. Temporary problem.

Well I guess this is one reason why I should be glad my husband spends a lot of time in his garden, as he grows lots of lettuce.

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Brett Samuels    Original Article

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) wrote in his upcoming memoir that he does not regret alerting the FBI about the so-called Steele dossier, which includes allegations about President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia. McCain acknowledged in January 2017 that he delivered a dossier of “sensitive information” to then-FBI Director James Comey. In his upcoming book, "The Restless Wave," McCain wrote that he "did what duty demanded I do" in passing on the documents. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain said, according to excerpts of the book published

Ads by Revcontent Susan Rice, President Obama´s former national security adviser, said President Trump has destroyed any chance of reining in Iran´s nuclear program by leaving the nuclear agreement championed by the Obama administration. "The president has just made the most foolish and consequential national security decision of his tenure," she wrote in an editorial for the New York Times. "Exactly what comes next is unclear, but we certainly will face a far worse situation than today," she said. "When the mess materializes, Mr. Trump, per standard procedure, will blame everyone else: his political opponents,

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Wednesday warned the Trump administration against going easy on North Korea in talks about its nuclear program just because that country released three U.S. detainees. "We cannot forget: No regime has the right to hold American citizens in captivity without cause, and under no circumstances should American citizens be viewed as bargaining chips," Schumer said Wednesday on the Senate floor. "If countries in the world think they can detain Americans and get something in return, we´ll see many more hostages,” he said. He added that he was “rooting for” the

The White House Correspondents´ Association fired back at President Trump on Wednesday after he suggested revoking press credentials for journalists who cover his administration critically. "Some may excuse the president´s inflammatory rhetoric about the media, but just because the president does not like news coverage does not make it fake," Margaret Talev, the group´s president and a White House correspondent for Bloomberg, said in a statement. "A free press must be able to report on the good, the bad, the momentous and the mundane, without fear or favor," she continued. "And a president preventing a free and independent

An Ebola outbreak has been declared in the Democratic Republic of Congo after 17 people have succumbed to the virus. The outbreak declaration was made after laboratory results confirmed two cases of Ebola out of a sample of five suspected patients, the World Health Organization (WHO) said. “Our top priority is to get to Bikoro to work alongside the government,” the WHO’s Peter Salama said in a statement. “Working with partners and responding early and in a co-ordinated way will be vital to containing this deadly disease.” The international health organisation says it has released $1m (£738,000) from an emergency

Catholic-themed Met Gala includes
bondage mask with crosses

There was plenty to make Timothy Cardinal Dolan blush at the Met on Monday — and that was even before some of the world’s sexiest stars strutted their bodice-busting “Sunday best’’ on the red carpet. A leather bondage mask draped in rosary beads, a jeweled bustier with its gems strategically placed and a fuschia gown inspired by cardinals’ robes — with a neckline that left its mannequin’s breasts mostly exposed — were all part of the Catholic-themed fashion exhibit at the Met Gala, and Dolan had already gotten a sneak preview of the collection. “You may be asking what is the church

Just a week after The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences gave Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski the boot per its news standards of conduct, the 84-year-old director is threatening to take legal action to reverse the decision. In a letter to the Academy President John Bailey, Polanski’s attorney, Harland Braun, explained that the decision was made in violation of the organization’s standards of conduct as well as California state law. He claims that Mr. Polanski should have been given a fair hearing in which he could explain his side of the story before being expelled.

Trump Dumps Iran Deal — Hallelujah!

President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal is the greatest boost for American and global security in decades. If you think that is an exaggeration, then you evidently think the Obama administration’s injection of well over a hundred billion dollars — some of it in the form of cash bribes — into the coffers of the world’s leading state sponsor of anti-American terrorism was either trivial or, more delusionally, a master-stroke of statecraft. Of course, there’s a lot of delusion going around. After repeatedly vowing to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons (with signature “If you like your health insurance, you

Former President Obama on Tuesday called President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement “misguided” and a “serious mistake.” "Without the JCPOA, the United States could eventually be left with a losing choice between a nuclear-armed Iran or another war in the Middle East," Obama said in a statement, referring to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the deal´s formal name. "If the constraints on Iran’s nuclear program under the JCPOA are lost, we could be hastening the day when we are faced with the choice between living with that threat, or going to war to prevent it,"
