Scottish vacation park considers changing its name to avoid toxic association with Trump

Published

on

Over the past couple of years, there have been several Trump-branded properties that have removed his name because it has been hurting their brands, including the Trump International Hotel in Panama and the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Toronto.

However, a vacation park in Scotland is now also considering dissociating itself from the president — and it doesn’t even have the “Trump” brand anywhere on it.

The Telegraph reports that the Turnberry Holiday Park believes that it is being hurt by being associated with the Turnberry golf resort that happens to be owned by President Donald Trump.

According to the Telegraph, the park recently “canvassed the opinions of over 1000 people and found that 32% were less likely to visit the site because of its name” due to its association with Trump’s golf course.

“We are proud of our historic association with Turnberry, but we are considering a new name that highlights the positive aspects of this wonderful part of the world,” Andrew Howe, the CEO of park owner Bridge Leisure Parks, tells the Telegraph. “We are giving members of the public a chance to have their say on a new name.They can head over to our Facebook Page to make their suggestions or share their views or concerns about any apparent link to the American President.”

Published

If a new president takes over the White House in January 2021, he or she may quickly find that the Democratic Party that just won control of the executive branch left a loaded gun in the hands of the Republicans, who are all too eager to use it.

That should be the takeaway from reports about the budget negotiations between the House Democrats and the Trump administration. According to Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur, the parties are coalescing around an agreement to raise spending by $350 billion, offset that increase somewhat with about $75 billion, and extend the debt ceiling — now set to expire in the fall — to July 31, 2021.

The US Department of Agriculture will propose a rule on Tuesday that would strengthen restrictions on food stamp recipients -- cutting approximately 3.1 million Americans from the program, according to Reuters.

Currently, 43 U.S. states allow residents to automatically become eligible for food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as SNAP, if they receive benefits from another federal program known as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, according to the USDA.

Teeth ‘time capsule’ reveals that 2 million years ago, early humans breastfed for up to 6 years

Published

on

Humans’ distant ancestor Australopithecus africanus had a unique approach to raising their young, as shown in our new research published today in Nature.

Geochemical analysis of four teeth shows they exclusively breastfed infants for about 6-9 months, before supplementing breast milk with varying amounts of solid food until they were 5-6 years old. The balance between milk and solid food in this period varied cyclically, probably in response to seasonal changes in food availability.
