    President Biden invoked the Defense Production Act on Wednesday evening to boost baby formula production and issued a directive for planes to bring in supplies from overseas, after growing pressure from Congress.  In addition to invoking the Cold War-era law to compel suppliers to direct resources to infant formula manufacturers before any other customer, Biden announced 'Operation Fly Formula,' which will direct Defense Department and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Health and Human Services (HHS) resources to getting planes loaded with formula that meets FDA safety standards from other countries to bring it to American parents. The Defense Department will use its contracts with commercial airlines to transport the formula back to the U.S.  Earlier Wednesday a bipartisan group in the House is brought forth a resolution imploring Biden to invoke the Defense Production Act. Twenty members of the House, eighteen Democrats, two Republicans, and many who face competitive re-election races, co-sponsored the resolution, led by Rep. Josh Gottheimer, D-N.J. Co-sponsors include Reps. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.), Mikie Sherrill (D-N.J.), Elaine Luria (D-Va.) and Chris Pappas (D-N.H.), and others. It has...
    Nestle is airlifting baby formula to the US from the Netherlands and Switzerland amid the crisis as the FDA orders Abbott Laboratories to overhaul its safety protocols before production can restart - a process that could take months. Abbott, the largest formula supplier in America, hasn't given a timeline for reopening and stockpiles have been found in migrant camps.  Nestle Switzerland, the owner of Gerber baby food, said it would airlift Gerber Good Start Extensive HA and Alfamino baby formula from its Netherland and Switzerland locations.  The company is prioritizing these formulas to help babies that are allergic to cow milk protein, a spokesperson told Bloomberg.  Nestle and Danone, another Swiss company, both said they were upping production, with Nestle saying its factories are running at capacity to offer more of its product at brick-and-mortar and online stores, as well as in hospitals, Bloomberg reported. Danone is pushing to increase production further and have offered a list of recommended substitutes on its website to help stressed parents.  'Our manufacturing facility is running at maximum capacity and we are prioritizing production...
    A Republican congresswoman took a trip to the U.S.-Mexico border in to expose the stock pile of baby formula being sent to border facilities while American families continue to face empty shelves amid a nationwide shortage. Rep. Kat Cammack, of Florida, was accused of lying about the formula crisis after she posted photos to Twitter last week showing full shelves of baby formula and food at a processing center at the southern border. The congresswoman claims she went down south Sunday and surveyed the facilities herself, finding not only an amass of formula, but other necessary infant supplies. 'Last week, I received text messages and photos from Border Patrol agents showing a stockpile of baby formula and there was complete outrage from the White House, CNN and other liberal outlets claiming that we were lying, so I decided to go down myself and film it,' she told Fox Business on Monday.  'Lo and behold, not only was there stocked warehouses, but there were multiple stocked warehouses that have been not only filled with baby formula, diapers, wipes and clothing, but they...
    Karine Jean-Pierre addressed her historic position as the nation's first black, openly gay White House press secretary in her first briefing, where she struggled to answer questions on inflation, addressed the baby forumla shortage and spoke to why President Joe Biden was visiting Buffalo. Jean-Pierre took questions for a little more than an hour. She has previously briefed the public in her role as deputy White House press secretary - a job that prepared her to step in Jen Psaki's shoes. Psaki's last briefing was Friday. 'I just want to say a few words about how honored I am to be here with all of you today,' Jean-Pierre said at the top of her briefing. 'I am obviously acutely aware that my presence at this podium represents a few firsts. I am a black gay immigrant woman, the first of all three of those to hold this position. I would not be here today if it were not for generations of barrier-breaking people before me. I stand on their shoulders,' she added. Jean-Pierre, 47, was born in Fort-de-France, Martinique, the...
    (CNN)The Biden administration is confronting a barrage of questions and criticism for the national baby formula shortage that has anxious and angry parents hopping from store to store in search of baby food. The White House was unable to point to federal guidance last Thursday on what parents struggling to find formula should do, and recommended that families reach out to their doctors and pediatricians if they were worried about their babies' health. Then on Friday, it unveiled a new website: HHS.gov/formula. "We recognize that parents have a lot of questions," then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters. The new website, she said, is aimed at providing "resources and places that parents can go to obtain formula, including contacts with companies, food banks (and) health care providers." A perfect storm hits baby formulaThe webpage lists contact information for a number of baby food manufacturers including Gerber, Reckitt and Abbott -- the company at the center of the major recalls dating back to February that prompted the nationwide shortage. The site also points families to resources like local food banks,...
    On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) said that he pressed the head of the Food and Drug Administration “months ago” on the baby formula issue and stated that right now the White House is “taking appropriate steps” to fix the issue and is “taking it seriously and I think they’re moving forward in the right direction.” Co-host John Berman asked, “What are you hearing from Montanans about baby formula?” Tester answered, “Big concern. And we need to do everything we can do to right this ship. It’s — literally is a life and death situation in many cases.” Berman then asked, “And is the White House doing that?” Tester responded, “I believe they’re taking appropriate steps right now to get this done, yep. I pushed the FDA commissioner months ago on this issue, and I think they’re taking it seriously and I think they’re moving forward in the right direction.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    The House Oversight Committee is launching an investigation into the baby formula shortage and demanding records and information from four of the largest manufacturers. 'The national formula shortage poses a threat to the health and economic security of infants and families in communities across the country - particularly those with less income who have historically experienced health inequities, including food insecurity,' Democratic Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney of New York wrote in letters to Abbott Nutrition, Mead Johnson Nutrition, Nestle USA and Perrigo, first obtained by ABC News.  The Oversight committee is the investigative arm of Congress and broad authority to probe a variety of issues.  The panel is looking into the price gouging around infant formula and the steps the companies are taking to address the shortages.  Also, Maloney specificially asked Chris Calamari, chairman of Abbott Nutrition, for information about the recall of its formula after several babies were hospitalized and two died from a rare bacterial infection in some of its product. Maloney wants answers to her questions, along with a briefing from the companies, by May 26.  The House Oversight...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday the Biden administration is working with manufactuers to ensure baby formula makes it back on empty shelves as frantic parents work to ensure their children are fed. 'Ensuring the availability of these products' is a 'priority' for the Food and Drug Administration, Psaki said at her daily press briefing, noting 'they're working around the clock to address any possible shortage.' The shortage was exacerbated by the FDA's shutdown of an Abbott Nutrition facility in Sturgis, Michigan. Abbott is a major producer of baby formula. Three brands were recalled because of potentia bacterial infections, including Salmonella. Psaki defended the call, saying the oversight agency was doing its job to protect people.  'The FDA issued a recall to ensure that they're meeting their obligation to protect the health of Americans, including babies,' she said. 'That's their job.' White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the administration is working with manufactuers to ensure baby formula makes it back on empty shelves Desperate mothers across the US have been forced to buy formula they know will make their...
    IF you’re a first-time mom, there’s probably a lot you don’t know about your newborn. With all the baby tools and conflicting advice out there, most new moms lead with their intuition and learn as they go. 3The flaps on your baby's onesie's shoulders are actually really usefulCredit: TikTok 3They make changing time so much easierCredit: TikTok One first-time mom named Joanna Tellez, who goes by @TellezJoanna on TikTok, has gained a following on social media thanks to her videos that offer useful tips for parents. She recently revealed what the buttoned-up shoulder flaps on your baby’s t-shirts and onesies are for. When your baby has just spit up or made a food mess all over his clothes, the last thing you want to do is pull off that dirty top right over his face. That’s where these shoulder buttons come in handy: “Fold down the flaps and pull down the dirty garment to avoid pulling over face.” READ MORE ON PARENTINGTURF'S UP Mom shares brilliant idea to keep son’s ‘carpet’ as good as new with NO effortTRIPLE TROUBLE I’m...
    NEW mums have gone wild after realising what the plastic is for on the side of baby formula boxes. Gillian Mitchell took to TikTok to tell her followers she only noticed the tiny bit of plastic when she was taking her first child off of formula. 3Gillian Mitchell took to TikTok to reveal she has only just realised what the piece of plastic on the side is forCredit: TikTok/ gillianmitchell170 3She then tried it out, putting the formula scoop underneath it to make it levelCredit: TikTok/ gillianmitchell170 3The hack meant the scoop of formula was perfectly level and ready to put straight into the bottleCredit: TikTok/ gillianmitchell170 But when she looked closely, she realised that the plastic is actually intended to level the top of the scoop of formula.

    Elon Musk joked he wants to buy drinks giant Coca-Cola to 'put the cocaine back in' as the eccentric entrepreneur enjoyed a series of back-and-forths with Twitter users amid his $44billion takeover of the platform. 'Next I'm buying Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in,' the wisecracking Tesla and SpaceX founder said in a late-night tweet Wednesday. The tweet prompted a storm of amusing responses, including one post which implored Elon 'bring it back' and shared an image of what appeared to be one of the first publicly sold Coca-Cola bottles in 1894. The early recipe for Coca-Cola actually included coca leaves, from which popular party drug cocaine is derived. The original Coca-Cola is thought to have contained 3.5 milligrams of cocaine - an ingredient which remained present in the drink until it was removed by the company nine years later. Elon also traded jokes with a user who posted a doctored tweet alongside Elon's profile picture which read: 'Now I'm going to buy McDonalds and fix all the ice cream machines...' 'Listen, I can't do miracles, ok,' the billionaire entrepreneur...
    Lewis Hamilton has revealed he is 'struggling mentally and emotionally' and said it is a 'constant effort to keep going'. The seven-time Formula One world champion, who finished 10th at last Sunday's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, made the admission via a post on his Instagram story on Thursday. 'It has been such a tough year already with everything that is happening around us,' said the 37-year-old. 'Hard some days to stay positive. 'I have struggled mentally and emotionally for a long time, to keep going is a constant effort but we have to keep fighting. We have so much to do and to achieve.' Hamilton, who has won more F1 races than any driver in the sport's history, is contesting his 16th season on the grid. But the British driver has endured a trying start to the new campaign in his uncompetitive Mercedes machinery.  Hamilton finished third at the opening round in Bahrain - after both Red Bull drivers retired in the closing stages with reliability failures - and then scored only a solitary point in Saudi Arabia last weekend....
    Formula One is all-in on the United States with a race on the Las Vegas Strip added to the 2023 calendar as the most glamorous motorsports series in the world continues to expand its North American footprint. The Bellagio, Caesars Palace and the MSG Sphere will be among the landmarks along the temporary street course built for a Saturday night race in November 2023. The race is a first for F1 in that the series will promote the event alongside Liberty Media Corp., the American parent company of F1. The Las Vegas race will be the third stop in the United States next season for F1, which has raced at Circuit of the America’s in Austin, Texas, since 2012 and in May will make its debut in Miami. Barring any shakeups, existing races in Mexico City and Montreal will bring F1 to North America five times next season. “Iconic Las Vegas and Formula 1, the pinnacle of motorsport, is the perfect marriage of speed and glamour,” said Greg Maffei, President and CEO of Liberty Media. “Our confidence...
    Terrorists appeared to launch a missile attack on an oil depot in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah, sparking a raging fire just miles from the F1 circuit where drivers were completing their practice session.   Yemen's Houthis revels acknowledged they had launched a series of attacks on the kingdom on Friday. During the first practice session of the Saudi Arabian grand prix, plumes of black smoke could be seen billowing into the air from the circuit, which is just 12 miles from the oil depot.  The blast could also be heard as F1 drivers were completing their practice session and the fumes from the explosion could be seen from Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz's dashcam whilst he was completing a lap.  While Saudi Arabia and its state-run oil behemoth Saudi Aramco did not immediately acknowledge the blaze, it appeared to be centered on the same fuel depot that the Houthis had attacked in recent days.  While Saudi Arabia and its state-run oil behemoth Saudi Aramco did not immediately acknowledge the blaze, it appeared to be centered on the same fuel depot...
    The Russian Grand Prix will not be part of the Formula One season this year after the sport's bosses decided to remove it from its calendar following Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel said he would boycott the Sochi Grand Prix and called for F1 chiefs to axe it from its 2022 calendar as he became the first driver to speak out against Russia on Thursday.  After initially stalling on a decision by saying they were monitoring the situation 'very closely', F1 officials decided to pull the plug on the race, due to be held on September 25, today. A statement on Friday afternoon read: 'The FIA Formula One World Championship visits countries all over the world with a positive vision to unite people, bringing nations together.  'We are watching the developments in Ukraine with sadness and shock and hope for a swift and peaceful resolution to the present situation. 'On Thursday evening Formula One, the FIA, and the teams discussed the position of our sport, and the conclusion is, including the view of all relevant stakeholders,...

    Ever found yourself wondering 'why am I alone?' or 'is there anyone out there for me?'. Well, a physicist and computer programmer has a tool that just might help.  Steven Wooding from Southampton combined a love of astrophysics and statistics to build a tool that calculates the odds of finding 'the one'. It is based on the famous Drake Equation, which was formulated by American astrophysicist Dr Frank Drake in 1961 as a way to examine the likelihood of finding intelligent alien life somewhere in the known universe. It looks at increasingly unlikely factors, from the average rate of star formation, through to the fraction of planets that go on to develop intelligent life.  Wooding and his colleague Rijk de Wet, a data scientist, applied this approach to the dating world, estimating the chance of love from a range of factors, including population growth rate, attractiveness, age range and education level.  It even compares the chance of finding love based on your own criteria, which includes your opinion of how good looking you are, to the chance of finding aliens. ...

              by JD Bowman   States are where policymaking magic happens because they can experiment with innovative policy ideas. Tennessee citizens are unsurpassed in courage, passion, determination, and kindness reflected in our diversity; that is actually why Tennessee is America at Its Best. As a state, we must set our agenda with relentless optimism and resolve toward our future. In education, we understand that there must be needed changes in school funding, including additional monies. Governor Lee’s proposal in the State of the State tonight needs much deeper review, study, and time. In Tennessee, we do not “pass the bill so people can find out what’s in it.” The Tennessee Constitution requires the General Assembly to provide for the maintenance, support, and eligibility standards of a system of free public schools. There are many key policy levers needed to improve public education and many are interlinked. Teachers are the critical element in improving education. It’s not about more programs, more standards, or more tests. It’s about that relationship between an adult and a child. Students need an adult who believes in them...
