Carli Lloyd makes 4th Olympic team as USWNT roster is revealed

Carli Lloyd is headed to her fourth Olympics after all. The 38-year-old Lloyd had vowed after the 2019 World Cup that she would push to make the team for Tokyo before stepping away from the sport. But then the games were pushed back a year because of the coronavirus, and Lloyd needed surgery on her knee. So making the 18-player roster was by no means a slam dunk for Lloyd, who scored three goals in the opening 16 minutes of the 2015 World Cup final in Canada. Vlatko Andonovski announced his Olym...

US and Brazil both seen scaling back ethanol production over next few months

In New York, Reuters reports that both the US and Brazil are expected to cut ethanol production over the next few months as rising feedstock prices for corn and sugar, respectively, make production uneconomical. Supplies for both feedstocks are tight, squeezing margins while high ethanol prices are making gasoline more expensive at the pump rather than cheaper. Brazilian sugar mills will focus more on sugar production but US ethanol producers will likely pull back production runs. China’s demand...

In 2000, when the internet in Brazil was still in its infancy, an email with an alarming message about the Amazon went viral. It claimed that the United States and the United Nations had taken the forest from Brazilians and transformed it into a protected area -- a falsehood, but one that reflected a long-running conspiracy theory still promoted today by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.

Hungary’s classrooms have become the new battleground for the war on ‘LGBT ideology’ | Mark Gevisser

Viktor Orban has used a new law to equate gay people with paedophiles. He’s not the first to use this tacticLast week, the Hungarian parliament banned any portrayal of homosexuality or transgenderism to minors, in educational material or on television. Appending this to a law protecting children from child abuse, the country’s president, Viktor Orbán, drew an explicit connection between homosexuality and paedophilia. In so doing, he resorted to a canard that much of the world has long dispensed ...

By Madeline Holcombe | CNN Some states are making great strides in vaccinating their residents against Covid-19, but the ones that are not may soon be contending with a more transmissible variant, experts say. About 45.2% of the US population is fully vaccinated against Covid-19, CDC data showed, and in 16 states and Washington, DC, that proportion is up to more than half, and 16 have reached President Joe Biden’s goal to vaccinate 70% of adults with at least one dose.
