ROME—Italy’s new government wants to reject a painstakingly negotiated trade deal between the European Union and Canada, and that is welcome news to Ettore Prandini, a small farmer in Italy’s fertile north. Mr. Prandini, who sells milk to producers of the famed Grana Padano cheese, says his revenue is set to fall by a fifth this year compared with last.

Ginger has long been touted as a natural remedy for tummy aches. But drinking a glass of ginger ale, it seems, is not quite the same as chewing on a fresh piece of the root, and at least one consumer feels she was misled about the potential health benefits of the carbonated drink. A federal lawsuit filed earlier this month in Buffalo, New York, claims Canada Dry and parent company Dr Pepper Snapple Group led consumers to believe their ginger ale product contained real ginger.

"Ms. Fletcher believed this meant that Canada Dry was made using ginger root and was, as a result, a healthier alternative to regular sodas," … [Read more...] about Canada Dry sued over lack of ginger in ginger ale
President Donald Trump on the second day of the 2018 NATO Summit on July 12, 2018 in Brussels, Belgium. Sean Gallup/Getty Images President Donald Trump is in Brussels this week meeting with fellow heads of NATO, the U.S.’ largest and most important military alliance, and, well, things didn’t start off well. Trump has been firing shots at NATO since before he assumed office, criticizing the other nations for not pulling their weight on military spending (actual numbers show they’re mostly on target), and sometimes insisting that other NATO nations “owe us a tremendous amount of money” for footing the bill (they don’t; that’s not how it works). On Wednesday morning, he fired a wild haymaker at German Chancellor Angela Merkel, saying Germany was “completely controlled” by Russia, because the central European country—like many of its neighbors—imports a large amount of natural gas from Russian suppliers. “I think it is … [Read more...] about By Trump’s Logic, If Russia Controls Germany, Then Canada Controls the U.S.

Medicinal marijuana has been legal in Canada since 2001, however with the changes that are now on the horizon to legalize its use for recreational purposes also, it will soon be easier than ever to buy weed. At the moment, those who need to buy marijuana in Canada have several choices when it comes to buying the green stuff. Buying Cannabis At A Clinic A clinic is a medical facility with doctors who are specially trained in diagnosing and prescribing medicinal marijuana. These clinics were launched because many regular GPs felt uncomfortable about prescribing weed to their patients due to a lack of knowledge about its medicinal uses, and therefore a need for a specialist facility with medical professionals who were skilled in determining whether or not cannabis would be an appropriate treatment option for individual patients was recognized. It is free to attend a clinic in Canada, although of course the cannabis itself isn’t free, and patients must make their payment when buying … [Read more...] about Buying Weed Legally In Canada?
