5 Things to Know for March 8: Manafort, Politics, China, Fish Fraud, Join Twins

It looks like Stormy Daniel's process against President Trump is over. A federal judge threw out his suit, which tried to void a $ 1 30,000 hush monetary agreement, because the suit "lacks the jurisdiction of the subject." The judge remanded the case back to where it was first filed. Daniels, an adult movie star, says she and Trump had a deal in 2006, which Trump denies.China's economy looks much more wobbly lately. The latest sign: China's exports fell by 21% in February compared to the previous year. It is the weakest result in three years, and it was much worse than the economists had predicted. This is partly due to the trade war against the United States, but that is not the only concern for the Chinese. The decline in exports indicates "global demand is cooling," says one economist. The International Monetary Fund expects global economic growth to decline this year and the European Central Bank warned of a "substantial decline" in economic expansion.Are we all the victims of a great fish fraud? Oceana says we are. A new study from the conservation group says that the fish that land on our plates may not be what we think it is. Oceana tested more than 400 samples from markets, stores and restaurants in 24 states and Washington. DNA tests showed that about 21% of it was not what it was called on the label or menu.

China’s economy looks much more wobbly lately. The latest sign: China’s exports fell by 21% in February compared to the previous year.

Are we all the victims of a great fish fraud? Oceana says we are. A new study from the conservation group says that the fish that land on our plates may not be what we think it is. Oceana tested more than 400 samples from markets, stores and restaurants in 24 states and Washington. DNA tests showed that about 21% of it was not what it was called on the label or menu. For example, what would be expensive sea bass was proven to be giant perch or Nile tilapia, which is cheaper and of lower quality. Mislabeled fish are bad for people trying to pay more attention to what they eat, and it can be harmful to pregnant women trying to avoid high mercury-containing fish.

Nima and Dawa Pelden are at home. They are the (formerly) conjoined twins who went to Australia last year to be separated. They were born in 2017, joined in the stomach against each other. A charity raised $ 180,000 for the operation, which took more than six hours and 25 surgeons, nurses, and anesthetists. Nurses said after the successful procedure, the twins wanted to be close together, even though they were no longer physically bound. Having returned home in Bhutan, the twin mother thanked Australia’s people: “You gave me all hope and smile on my face as I went through some horrible times. I just want to say you’re amazing.” [19659003] BREAKFAST BROWSE
