America’s fastest-growing city is becoming the key driver in reviving the fortunes of the Arab world’s first representative democracy – Tunisia – through the nascent Sister City partnership between Baltimore, Maryland, and the ancient and strategic port city of Bizerte. Tunisia’s strategic importance was formalized by then US president Barack Obama when he declared that the North African nation was America’s most strategic non-NATO US ally, and the nation’s strategic importance for the US continues with President Donald Trump under the leadership of US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

By Joseph Pisani The Associated Press Fri., June 15, 2018 NEW YORK—Donna Brunswick drove to a Costco last month to pick up some raw flank steak — not at the wholesale club, but from a truck in the parking lot. “Typically you wouldn’t buy meat off a random truck,” says Brunswick, a technical manager in Atlanta. But she says $20 for the slab of beef was a good deal. And she liked the filet mignon she bought from it in December when it was that day’s offering. “The truck meat was delicious,” she says. The meat didn’t just fall off the back of a random truck. It was sold by Amazon, which already sells just about anything online but now also hawks discounted seafood, Panini presses and more from what it calls the Treasure Truck. It’s a quirky way for the online retailer to connect with shoppers in person, expand its physical presence and promote itself. Amazon has also used the trucks to try to bring people into … [Read more...] about Who’s that selling steaks off a truck? It’s Amazon
By Kelly Geraldine Malone The Canadian Press Mon., May 14, 2018 While the Whiteout street party grows in Winnipeg with the excitement of each game, Jets fans around the world aren’t letting geography get in the way of supporting their team on the road to the Stanley Cup. In Vancouver, the Coppertank pub has seen an increasing stream of thirsty fans filling the bar in white jerseys as the Jets battle it out with the Vegas Golden Knights in the Western Conference final. Coppertank owner Ben Wyllie says initially there was only a handful of fans wearing the jerseys, but now the bar is experiencing its own whiteout. He said new Jets fans emerge each day.

By Helena Oliviero Atlanta Journal-Constitution Thu., March 29, 2018 ATLANTA—Easter baskets can be so much fun to put together for the kiddos. And while the Easter Bunny is not going to fill up a basket with broccoli and Brussels sprouts, there’s no reason for the basket to be loaded with sugar either. Sugary candies may be easy to buy, but did you know that one prefilled plastic egg can contain more than 30 grams of sugar? That is the same amount of sugar as what’s in two ice cream sandwiches. By adding toys, coins and books to the mix, the Easter Bunny can dial back the sugar — and amp up the fun. In fact, the sugar consumption during the Easter season can even compete with Halloween when you take into account all of the sugary treats collected from egg hunts, baskets and school parties, not to mention Easter family gatherings.
