Trump Seizes On Soggy Paper Straws As Campaign Issue: 'Make Straws Great Again'

President Trump appears to have identified his newest American enemy — paper straws. His reelection campaign is now selling reusable and recycled straws in their 2020 online store, and Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale blasted out the slurping non-soggy alternative in an email titled "Make Straws Great Again," a play on the president's famed slogan. "I'm so over paper straws, and I'm sure you are too. Much like most liberal ideas, paper straws don't work and they fall apart instantly. That's why we just launched our latest product - Official Trump Straws," Parscale wrote late Friday. "Now you can finally be free from liberal paper straws that fall apart within minutes and ruin your drink." Journalist Yashar Ali appears to have been the first to notice the new merchandise in Trump's campaign store. A pack of 10, which are red and emblazoned with "TRUMP" in silver, is available for $15. However, they currently take almost two weeks for shipping. (Full disclosure: This journalist, and

Thom Yorke Recalibrates And Digs Deeper Into His Dread Of Technology With 'ANIMA'

In his vast catalog of music, Radiohead 's Thom Yorke has trembled like a broken man on his knees. He has screamed in tormented six-part harmony; he has manic-whispered diaries worth of existential fear. Still, he just can't shake the techno-dread. Most recently, that dread has manifested in Yorke's third solo project, ANIMA , released on June 27. ANIMA is a nine-song album accompanied by a short "one-reel" Netflix film set in an Orwellian urban dystopia from director Paul Thomas Anderson. The projectfinds new ways to dig into Yorke's old anxieties and represents his most harrowing solo work to date. Ever since Radiohead put out the visionary OK Computer in 1997, Yorke has artfully expressed his misgivings about technology and its potential to fray social fabric. By now, you'd think, he might have exhausted the theme. But with the dreamlike atmospheres of ANIMA , he opens up another zone of exploration. YouTube Yorke is not one to repeat himself, however. ANIMA represents a

Study: Sugar Rules The World And Ruins Teeth

Ninety-five percent of 12-year-olds in the Philippines have tooth decay, or cavities. And cavities affect seven in 10 children in India , one-third of Tanzania teens and nearly one in every three Brazilians. These and other startling oral health statistics are the focus of a two-part series published this week in The Lancet . In it, more than a dozen dentists and public health experts call for radical action to end neglected and widespread oral disease. The culprit? "Sugar is the causative agent for dental decay," says Robert Weyant , one of the study authors and a dental public health expert at the University of Pittsburgh. "Basically, without sugar, you won't develop decay." Roadside dentist Ram Ji learned his trade from his father — and says he's trained 29 street dentists in Varanasi, India. He believes that sweets are the main cause of the tooth decay he treats. John Stanmeyer for NPR The Lancet study authors also point at what they call a failed dental system, where many dentists
