President Obama has put an end to an 85-year old loophole which allowed the US to import items that have been produced by trapped and enslaved workers overseas. The bill, signed on Wednesday, prevented the US from importing fish caught by slaves in Southeast Asia, gold mined by children in Africa and garments sewn by abused women in Bangladesh. It also bans other products that were unethically produced, from cocoa to electronics.

Worst hotel breakfast buffet I've experienced. Anyone who chooses hotels based on price will know how low that bar is already.
