Good morning, all! We've got a few updates for today:
From CNN, a story of a nationwide meat recall, which is actually a nationwide recall of pre-packaged deli sandwiches due to the meat in them. If you prefer to build your own sandwiches, fear not.
Politico has a report on attempts to beef up the FDA that have thus far lingered in committee. It doesn't look like Bill will be stuck in committee much longer, with multiple recalls this election year.
Down Under, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation explains how recent hung Parliamentary election stands to increase the importance of rural Ministers in building a coalition.
In the markets, Japan plans to increase the price of wheat its Agriculture Ministry sells to millers, and the USDA announces that recent rains currently rate the corn crop at 82% "good" or "excellent."
From the Greeley (Colorado) Tribune, a story of a hay fire where neighbors showed up in droves offering to help out.
Finally, something a little more unusual: From the BBC, new research identifies the availability of "living space", rather than competition, as being of key importance for evolution." Basically, the more room creatures have to live, the more rapidly they develop more advantageous qualities like strength and intelligence.
I don't mean to suggest anything metaphorical by that. Not at all...
