Today’s guest post is by Adam Ghering, public affairs specialist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. Have you ever seen someone handling food in a way that you would never do yourself? Maybe they were preparing raw poultry and then immediately handled lettuce without washing their hands. Or maybe they did wash their hands, but they dried them by wiping them on their pants. You would never do that, right? Then again, maybe there are things we all do that might increase our risk for foodborne illness. USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service recently completed an observational study in which participants were recorded cooking in a test kitchen to see if they handled food unsafely while cooking. Preliminary results show that participants didn’t do well preventing bacteria from spreading around their kitchen or verifying that their turkey burgers were safe to eat. Check out the list of top five food safety mistakes … [Read more...] about Think you wash your hands the right way in the kitchen? Think again!

In the days before his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki Monday, President Donald Trump upset relations with America's allies during a visit to the United Kingdom and a contentious meeting with NATO leaders in Brussels. In addition to calling the European Union a "foe" of the U.S. and criticizing British Prime Minister Theresa May for her handling of Brexit, Mr. Trump slammed fellow NATO countries for not contributing more towards defense spending. On "CBS This Morning" Monday, Ian Bremmer, president of the Eurasia Group and a CBS News senior global affairs contributor, said that backstage at the NATO meeting there were elements that were even more eyebrow-raising than reports have suggested. "One is that emergency session where they asked the Georgian and Ukrainian presidents to leave in the middle of their presentation. Apparently Trump said, 'OK, we're done with you now,'" Bremmer said. "Trump was very frustrated; he wasn't getting commitments from … [Read more...] about Trump fist-bumped Turkish leader Erdogan, said he “does things the right way”
WASHINGTON -- House Speaker Paul Ryan reiterated his opposition to President Trump's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, saying they aren't "the right mechanism" to punish unfair trade practices by China. "I don't want to hamstring the president's negotiating tactics, but I've long said I don't think tariffs are the right way to go," Ryan said at a press conference after a meeting of House Republicans on Wednesday. "I think there are legitimate, absolutely unfair trade practices, particularly by China, that we and our allies should be confronting, so that is important to point out ... I just don't think tariffs are the right mechanism to do that." The Trump administration is readying tariffs on another $200 billion in Chinese imports in an escalating trade dispute affecting thousands of products. Last Friday, the U.S. imposed 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods, and Beijing responded by imposing an equivalent levy on U.S. imports.

Today, though, the disease affects people nationwide. Lyme disease—which is caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi and transmitted to humans through a bit from an infected black-legged or deer tick—affects some 300,000 Americans annually, and has been rising every year. Given its prevalence, having Lyme disease on your radar is a good thing—but it can also make it easy to freak out about spending time in the great outdoors. No, you shouldn't become a shut-in: Playing in the grass, hiking, and exploring nature trails is good for your health! But you need to do tick checks when you come inside. Here's what to do if one of those blood-sucking critters has latched onto you. First: What does a tick look like?The photo at the top of this story is an extreme close-up of a tick. … [Read more...] about How to Remove a Tick the Right Way

Sign up here. IN 1993, I WENT ON my first tropical vacation. OK, it was Bermuda, so it was subtropical, but that did nothing to dampen my excitement. During the flight, my anticipation grew as I looked over the brochure from the travel agent showing the inn where my girlfriend and I would be staying as part of our prepaid package. The coral-colored, white-roofed Palm Reef Hotel featured balconied waterfront rooms and provided British-style afternoon tea service.When we checked in, I tried to mask my disappointment at how much the Palm Reef appeared to have aged since its glam photo shoot for that brochure. So what if the lobby furniture was shabby and some of the walls were crumbling? I reminded myself that we would be spending most of … [Read more...] about The right way to complain when a business does you wrong
