Watch Live: President Trump Delivers His First U.N. General Assembly Speech
President Donald Trump is scheduled to deliver his first address to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday morning. Trump, who is slated to speak at the U.N. at 10:30 a.m. EST, has a controversial history with the international organization. He has often espoused an “America First” policy that doesn’t always align neatly with the values of international cooperation that define the body, and during his presidential campaign he dismissed the international body as a “club for people to get together, talk and have a good time.” However, the White House has said that Trump will stress the n...

3 Things to Expect in President Trump ’s United Nations Speech
President Trump will give his first address to the United Nations Tuesday, an organization with whom he has a bit of a controversial history. As a candidate and a President, Trump has often espoused an “America First” policy that doesn’t always align neatly with the values of international cooperation that define the U.N. At one point during his campaign, he even decried the organization’s “utter weakness and incompetence.” The criticism only continued after he was elected, with Trump characterizing it on Twitter as a “club for people to get together, talk and have a good time.&rdq...

You Taste Food Differently When You ’re in a Relationship
People change and adapt when they’re in a relationship—and not usually in ways that make them more unique. Studies suggest that over time, romantic partners can become more similar in subtle ways. Younger couples tend to have similar levels of health the longer they’ve been together, and couples may even develop similar facial features—by employing the same facial muscles out of unintentional mimicry—over time. The same phenomenon may also happen on the plate. A new study published in the journal Appetite suggests that couples may develop more similar food tastes the longer they’re toget...

Russia ’s Latest War Games Are Causing Jitters in Europe
(MINSK, Belarus) — Russia and Belarus began major war games Thursday, an operation involving thousands of troops, tanks and aircraft on NATO’s eastern edge practicing how to hunt down and destroy armed spies, among other maneuvers. The Zapad (West) 2017 maneuvers, which are mainly taking place in Belarus this year, have caused concern among members of the Western military alliance and in neighboring countries. Some NATO members, including the Baltic states and Poland, have criticized a lack of transparency about the exercises and questioned Moscow’s real intentions. Russia and Belarus say the exercises, w...

Russia ’s Zapad Military Drills Seek to Send a Message to the World
The Zapad drills, Russia’s premier military exercises, have begun. The primary goal in these quadrennial war games is to prepare Russian troops for a major war – by some European estimates, as many as 100,000 could take part in the manoeuvres from Sept. 14-20 – with their “presumed opponents” being the U.S. and its allies. But no less important is the message these games seek to send to the world: the Russian military, nearly three decades after the fall of the Soviet Union, is once again a force to be feared. Russia’s neighbors have gotten the message, and some fear the Russians may hav...

Study: Women Who Had Miscarriages Were More Likely To Have Received Flu Shots
NEW YORK (AP) — A puzzling study of U.S. pregnancies found that women who had miscarriages between 2010 and 2012 were more likely to have had back-to-back annual flu shots that included protection against swine flu. Vaccine experts think the results may reflect the older age and other miscarriage risks for the women, and not the flu shots. Health officials say there is no reason to change the government recommendation that all pregnant women be vaccinated against the flu. They say the flu itself is a much greater danger to women and their fetuses. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reached out to a do...

Going to university may cut your risk of heart disease
Conclusion This study indicates there may be some genetic support for the idea that spending longer in education contributes to lowering the risk of CHD. The researchers also demonstrate that this may be because people who spend longer in education have a lower BMI and are less likely to smoke. However, there are some limitations to this research that need to be considered: The genetic variations identified as being associated with education may not be markers for education at all, but more basic biological pathways. The authors do not account for the fact that differences in education might be due to brain function, w...

The study results support the UK guidelines, having found that people who get around 50% of their calories from carbohydrates and 35% from fat, as recommended by Public Health England, were likely to live the longest. There are some limitations to the study, not least that observational studies cannot prove cause and effect. For example, the very low fat and high carbohydrate levels of diets found among some participants in the study might simply repres...
