French Roast News

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the cover girl of Conde Nast’s Traveler, reinforcing her position as the most globetrotting American secretary of state ever. Hillary shares her thoughts on humanity in words that are music to our ears.

In the modern world, we’re all interdependent, we’re all interconnected. You just can’t say that you’re only going to deal with your own kind of person, or you’re only going to meet your own kind or person, or you’re only going to listen to your own kind of person. That’s not the way the world is going to work. And we’ll either figure out how to be more integrated, or we will disintegrate.

Hillary Clinton will have clocked over a million miles when she steps down as secretary. Writer Devin Doyle says that “traveling with Clinton is like chasing after a woman shot out of a cannon with rocket boosters strapped to her pantsuit”. Keeping up with her is described as “punishing,” “grueling” and “exhausting”.

Clinton guesses that her popularity stems from a combination of factors. For one, she represents the United States, which, “despite all of the criticism and other issues, people still admire.” Another reason is that she went to work for the man against whom she battled fiercely for the presidency and who dealt her a stunning defeat. “They find that just amazing. Why would he ask me and why would I say yes? Because we both love our country and democracy, and in a time of great challenge, people need to commit to their country and to their fellow human beings. I think that resonates with some people,” she says.

We share a video of Secretary Clinton in India, stopping to meet West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, who recently defeated 30 years of Communist rule in a state of 91 million in Kolkata. The occasion was the first time an American high official had visited the program focused on combating India’s sex trafficking industry, in which girls are sold into slavery.

Women Rally Around Obama

New research on the 2012 presidential election shows that President Obama has a commanding lead among women voters, a lead that should increase now that Mitt Romney has chosen Paul Ryan as his running mate. Mitt’s main guy Paul Ryan is Mr. Sponsor of a federal law mandating unnecessary ultrasounds for women seeking an abortion and Mr. Sponsor of the same rights for a fertilized egg as for the woman in the voting booth — making the egg more important than she is in reality.

All her independent decisions about even taking certain medications are governed by the needs of her embryo, making her a true incubator machine with no rights of her own to good health.

Here’s the latest polling research, via Jedediah Bila writing on FOX:

On August 7-8 CNN/ORC found that women were voting for Obama (73%) over Romney (44%).

On August 13, The Wall Street/NBC confirmed polling results that Obama leads Romney 54% to 39% among women. Among college-educated women, the president leads 63%-32%. (Note, those results might include Ryan results.)

Tove Larsen (speaking) of Eawag, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, talks about their diversion toilet at yesterday’s  ‘Reinventing the Toilet’ Fair, sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

“We couldn’t be happier with the response that we’ve gotten,” Bill Gates said.

To pass the foundation’s threshold for the world’s next toilet, it must operate without running water, electricity or a septic system, not discharge pollutants, preferably capture energy or other resources, and operate at a cost of 5 cents a day. via Salon

Obesity in America

Using self-reported results that are probably worse than reported, the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention has revealed the details of America’s latest obesity reality check. For the first time, researchers used households that can only be contacted with mobile phones, results that bring more younger people into the statistics.

US Fertility Rate Plunges

America’s fertility rate has plunged below replacement level at a time when France’s is stable and Britain’s rising.

The Economist writes that Mexican migrants — who have higher fertility rates — are not finding work and go back home. Significant research confirms that young people are postponing marriage, buying new homes and having children.

Saudi Arabia’s Women Only Cities

In an innovative measure to deal with strict gender-laws that prohibit men and women working together, Saudi Arabia is planning to build several women-only cities. The first location to employ women only will be a new industrial city in the Eastern Province of Hofuf.

Segregated schools, universities and offices are already the norm in Saudi Arabia where women require a male guardian’s consent for activities including marriage, divorce or travel, reports Huff Po.

Although 60 percent of the nation’s college graduates are women, only 15 percent are employed.

PA Corbett Plummets with Women Voters | Rainer Becker's Sensational Sushi | Hillary Clinton Defemds Huma

Zuma: Wabi-Sabi on Nowness.com.

A delectable culinary, film vision from NOWNESS. The artfully handcrafted sushi, robata grill dishes and desserts of German chef Rainer Becker’s contemporary Japanese cuisine restaurant Zuma are celebrated in still life photographer Thomas Brown’s stop-frame animation. Based on the award-winning London eatery’s informal Japanese “izakaya” style of dining, in which dishes are continuously and steadily brought to the table throughout the meal, Brown’s short opens with the red laser projections used to precisely set each table and features Head Chef Li Ong’s delicately prepared chow. “He is the ultimate professional,” says Brown of Ong, “incredibly passionate and with expert skills. It was an honor to watch these dishes being crafted––Li made it look effortless.” Becker’s first Zuma restaurant arrived to critical acclaim in Knightsbridge in 2002 after its mastermind had spent six years perfecting his art in Tokyo. “I immersed myself in the whole culinary culture of Japan from street food yakatori to kaiseki. I could identify with the subtlety of flavor, the importance of texture, the rules of the cooking techniques and presentation,” explains Becker. Stylishly decorated with marble pillars, unyielding wooden surfaces and natural stonework by leading Japanese interior designer Nori Muramatsu, and based around an open floor plan and exposed kitchen to evoke an “authentic” Japanese restaurant, Zuma offers 40 different varieties of sake, including Biwa No Choju––exclusively brewed from the waters of Lake Biwa in Japan’s Shiga prefecture. Frequented by numerous celebrities and high-profile guests including Kate Moss, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, the culinary destination has expanded over the past decade into Hong Kong, Istanbul, Dubai, Miami and Bangkok.

PA’s Corbett’s Approval Sinks with Women

Is Pennsyvania governor Tom Corbett in trouble with women voters?” We sure hope so!

Corbett joins the list of Republican governors trying to eliminate Planned Parenthood and usher in a host of new rules governoring women’s health care in the state. Corbett famously told PA women to close their eyes, as the state mandated exactly how their head was to be positioned when viewing their unneeded untrasound before having an abortion.

Corbett’s disapproval polling numbers, as reported by Quinnipiac University, have increased from 12 percent in January 2011 to 51 percent in June 2012.

“I think Corbett’s priorities have been a step back for the state, for women, our priorities and our families. That deeply affects women as it does men,” U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, who represents parts of Philadelphia and Montgomery counties told the Philadelphia Daily News.

“I would say he doesn’t have empathy or any understanding of what average women are going through,” said Julia Ramsey, president of the Pennsylvania chapter of the National Organization for Women, and a friend of Anne’s. “Either he will change his tune in another two years or we need a new governor.”

Amen sisters!

Big Mouths: Hillary Clinton

Huma Abedin, singled out by MIchele Bachmann as a front for the Muslim BrotherhoodSecretary of State Hillary Clinton defended her personal top State Department aide Huma Abedin at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace today. Politico reports:

In answering the question, Clinton tied the Abedin controversy into the struggle of developing nations to respect minority religions.

“Leadership is incredibly important.  Leaders have to be active in stepping in and sending messages about protecting the diversity within their countries.  And frankly, I don’t see enough of that, and I want to see more of it.  I want to see more of it, and we did see some of that in our own country.  We saw Republicans stepping up and standing up against the kind of assaults that really have no place in our politics,” Clinton said.

Clinton was referring to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who condemned Bachmann’s letter on the Senate floor.

“These attacks on Huma have no logic, no basis and no merit. And they need to stop now,” McCain said.

John Bolton Supports Gaffney Who Calls Michele Bachmann America's 'Iron Lady' | Joss Stone's New 'Soul Sessions'

Secy of State Hillary Clinton /AP photo Election 2012 | Foreign Policy Front

Politico reminds readers that presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has a tough job ahead on the foreign policy front. Steve Schmidt, who served as John McCain’s chief strategist in the 2008 campaign said:

“She’s widely recognized by a very high percentage of persuadable voters for having done a terrific job as secretary of state,” Democratic consultant Steve Murphy said. “Having Hillary Clinton as part of the equation certainly strengthens Barack Obama’s argument on foreign policy and national security.”

On the foreign policy front, key Romney adviser former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton says that he was “mystified” by those who have criticized Rep. Michele Bachmann’s claims against Clinton’s key deputy Huma Abedin that she is a front for the Muslim Brotherhood.

On July 24 Bolton appeared on Center for Security Policy president Frank Gaffney’s radio show. Gaffney’s largely discredited ‘research’ is the source of Bachmann’s claims.

Slate reported in May 2012 that Gaffney was disinvitied from the weekly conservative “Weyrich lunch’, due to his continuing investigation of the alleged Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of Washington. In February the American Conservative Union blocked Gaffney from the CPAC stage.

Writing for Jewish World Review this week, Gaffney compares Bachmann to Margaret Thatcher, calling her America’s Iron Lady.

Joss Stone’s New Debut

Joss Stone by David VenniGood news from WSJ. British pop star Joss Stone returns soon to the stunning sounds of her first album “Soul Sessions’, also a big hit in Anne’s music library.

Stone is backed by a band that includes guitarist Ernie Isley of the Isley Brothers and Muscle Shoals Rhythm Stompers keyboard great Clayton Ivey, with backing vocals by 1974 Grammy winner Betty Wright (“Where is the Love”).

The sultry temptress will be singing Sylvia Robinson’s 1973 hit ‘Pillow Talk’. Steve Greenberg, producer of both Sessions albums says Joss Stone never would have sung anything that risqué in her first album.
