Money markets are demanding that governments spend more on infrastructure and education and services other things governments do to make people's lives better.

Hypertension+high salt diet is bad, but a low salt diet has significant risks regardless of hypertension.
 
A large worldwide study has found that, contrary to popular thought, low-salt diets may not be beneficial and may actually increase the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and death compared to average salt consumption.

I've been arguing this for years, to no avail. Most people are stuck in the cycle of 1970s and 1980s dietary advice. Even when they learn it's false, they continue to follow it. It's been known for two decade that the low-salt diet is not beneficial -- certainly not in preventing hypertension. While it's a good idea to limit sodium intake if you have hypertension and are particularly susceptible to salt, removing salt from the diet does nothing positive for everyone else. Now we know that it's actually stronger -- salt avoidance is harmful, except for people with very specific conditions. Yet, it may take another twenty years to change attitudes.

As a result, "all wines are better."
 
Nearly two decades later, at another tasting, the judges were filmed scurrying to change their scores when they found out they'd been rating Italian reds above the French. Thry had succeeded and the French wines had won the day, but it was a Pyrrhic victory and the damage had already been done. For most wine drinkers, the wine world is much more egalitarian today than it was in 1976. Collectors may still disagree, but they almost never drink their collections.
Forty years ago, the top names in French food and wine judged a blind tasting pitting the finest French wines against unknown California bottles. The results revolutionized the wine industry.

"Ha ha. Have you met the Washington Press corps?" 
The media, like many institutions involved in US politics, badly needs a competitive race.

So cringe-worthy.
 
I was so disappointed to discover this isn't in fact a real publication.

Got a great thing going, here with the beers and sausages. A loud venue - prefer it when the big doors are open for outside seating.

We did a major remodel with Knight in 2003, that included a 16x20 addition and a totally redone. kitchen in granite and maple. We had our own design person for that project, but Knight and his subs did a superb job of execution and we enjoy every bit of it to this day. A few months ago, we needed to replace a steam shower enclosure, and went with Knight again, resulting in a gorgeous tile steam shower with glass doors. While this project was in progress, we found that the base of our upstairs shower stall was leaking and needed full replacement, and that was added to the project, with timing such that we always had one shower to use. You want contractors/craftsmen who are proud of their work and happy to show you their progress, and that is what we had with both projects.

Really wanted to like this place, and I would try it again if I lived here. Couldn't taste the hazelnut in our cappuccinos, which also were very "wet".

Everything went fine at DCA National Airport. The associate took us through using the kiosk, which begs the question of having kiosks. Never a hassle with the spouse driving, no hard-sell on insurance or upgrade. That's what I like. Check-in was super smooth.
