President Trump Just Hit North Korea With New Sanctions
(NEW YORK) — U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday the United States will add more sanctions against North Korea, while U.S. allies have called for enforcing existing international sanctions as the best way to get Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons program. The sanctions are not expected to further target oil, a senior Trump administration official told Reuters. Tensions have risen over North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile tests, despite intense pressure from world powers. The U.N. Security Council has unanimously imposed nine rounds of sanctions on North Korea since 2006, the latest earlier...

President Trump ’s Pick for Russian Ambassador: ‘No Question’ Moscow Interfered in Election
(WASHINGTON) — Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, President Donald Trump’s nominee to be U.S. ambassador to Russia, told Congress on Tuesday that Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election led directly to the lack of trust between the two former Cold War foes. Appearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Huntsman struck a tough tone amid heightened tensions between Washington and Moscow. The relationship has been marred in recent months by a series of expulsions of diplomats and closures of diplomatic missions. “There is no question that the Russian government interfered in the U.S....

Could adding lithium to tap water reduce dementia levels?
Conclusion The study is intriguing because we already know that lithium affects how the brain and nervous system work through many different pathways. However, the results are difficult to interpret. The study seemed to suggest that lithium levels of more than 15 micrograms per litre could be protective against dementia in comparison with the lowest levels. However, that doesn't explain why levels of 5 to 10 micrograms per litre seemed to increase the risk of dementia in comparison with the lowest levels. It's possible that some other factors – linked to where people live but not necessarily...
