    Germany is adding a ministry for “Heimat,” a word loaded with negative undertones

    For some the word “Heimat,” which translates as “home” or “homeland,” may conjure up visions of beer, Lederhosen, and idyllic German landscapes. For others, it harks back to the dark era of national socialism in Germany. For many, it’s devoid of patriotic or nostalgic sentiment, a word simply used to describe the place they were…

    Trump NAFTA pullout fears rattle CME hog futures

    Chicago Mercantile Exchange hog futures on Thursday shed more than 2 percent of their value on Thursday, partly pressured by Canadian government worries that U.S. President Donald Trump intends to scrap NAFTA talks, said traders. Canadian government sources told Reuters on Wednesday they were increasingly convinced the United States plans to announce it intends to pull out of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Of greater concern to U.S. pork producers is the potential loss of a lucrative export partner if Mexico leaves NAFTA should Trump decide to trigger the 6-month process to withdraw from the trade pact.

    China's largest pig farming companies and new entrants are racing to build vast, modern hog farms in the north-eastern cornbelt, expanding the world's biggest pork market and upending traditional trade flows in meat and grain.

    I didn’t get why people hate Thanksgiving turkey until I ate goose

    Americans have a love-hate relationship with turkey: It dominates the traditional Thanksgiving holiday table, but it’s also tricky to cook and not exactly the most delicious bird. Some even call it “flavorless.” I’ve always defended the turkey against snobbish culinary types. I’ve got a soft spot for tradition; substituting chicken just seems quotidian and red…
