Nearly 70,000 pounds of chicken nuggets recalled because there's wood in them

Food recalls are nothing new, and there's plenty of reasons that a company might need to issue a recall of a consumable product. Sometimes food is contaminated during manufacturing or contains traces of another food product that could trigger allergies in unsuspecting consumers, but a recent recall of chicken nuggets comes with a bizarre twist. According to the USDA, Perdue Foods LLC is issuing a prompt recall of nearly 70,000 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken nuggets because the company fears there's wood -- yes, wood -- in them. Somehow, that might not even be the most surprising thing about this story. The official recall doesn't really tell us how exactly wood would have gotten into a...

As Vladimir Putin's fourth, and almost certainly final, six-year term as president heads into its second year, the prospect of a Russia without him is becoming real, if not yet urgent. Inevitably, some are talking up schemes to keep Mr. Putin - and the relatively stable status quo he guarantees - in some position of having the final word on critical matters. "In any authoritarian system, the most dangerous moment is the transition of power," says Olga Kryshtanovskaya, head of the sociological think tank Kryshtanovskaya Laboratories, and Russia's top elite-watcher.

Many of the steps businessman Trump and his coauthor lay out in their 1987 bestseller reflect the president's aggressive approach to negotiation today: Think big. Over the weekend, Mr. Trump got a taste of just how difficult negotiating can be in Washington. As the partial government shutdown over border-wall funding entered its fifth week, Trump offered what he called a "common-sense compromise": temporary protections for "dreamers" and certain other immigrants in exchange for $5.7 billion for the wall.

Instead of cracking down on such local thieves - most of them impoverished farmers - Mr. López Obrador, or AMLO as he is known, plans to offer them an alternative.

It got the nickname "Super Blood Wolf Moon" thanks to a combination of labels that may or may not have much meaning, but it was an undeniably cool sight nonetheless. As it turns out, the eclipse was even more special than most observers had noticed, as the Moon was actually struck by a meteorite while everyone was gazing in wonder at its rusty appearance.
