Emmanuel Macron to Welcome Trump, an Unlikely Partner, to France

On Syria, Mr. Macron has renounced the downfall of President Bashar al-Assad as a precondition of peace talks. He invited Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin, to a meeting in France, where he challenged Mr. Putin with tough words on Syria and on gay rights. On Africa, he gave a sober — if impolitic — warning about high birthrates.Continue reading the main storyMr. Macron’s aides believe that working with America is inevitable and indispensable, and that for better or worse, it must be done through the current president.The French president has already taken a softer line toward Mr […]

Dear climate visionaries: Resist France’s allure

Back in February, when France’s then-presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron thumbed his nose at President Donald Trump and invited jaded U.S. scientists and inventors to come build a sustainable future in France, I applauded and played along.

“[L]et’s face it,” I wrote. “France is a tough sell. The food is irritatingly fresh, the architecture tends to distract people from their cellphones, and the high-speed rail lines get in the way of SUVs.”

But now that Macron is president and has backed up his words with substance, setting up a program to bring American climate visionaries to France, it’s no longer funny. If you’re an entrepreneur, scientist, or engineer disillusioned with Trump’s America and tempted by this offer, please don’t go. It’s a terrible idea. Do you hear me, Katharine Hayhoe?

Mais porquoi? you say, after thumbing through your French phrasebook. Because the United States, the world’s second-biggest polluter, is a much more pernicious driver of climate change than France, the 18th. We need you here. The world needs you here. The future needs you here.

OK, I’ll cop to getting a little carried away. We should give Macron his due. He’s offering a four-year grant to people from anywhere in the world, so they can come work on climate change projects in France. That’s great! Science, technologies, and companies created in France won’t be constrained by French borders. We’ll all benefit. And it’s just for four years, the nominal length of Trump’s (first) term. But c’mon, be real: Nobody goes to France to live for just four years.

This screenshot from Macron’s new website, titled “Make Our Planet Great Again” seems to confirm my concerns that France wants to keep our smarties forever.

I’m worried about a brain drain. We can’t afford to lose the political heft of scientists as communicators and U.S. citizens. The United States needs people who weigh evidence and allow that evidence to change their minds. We need men and women like this of all political stripes living in American towns, talking to their American friends, going to American churches, and helping to make this country sane again. If we all sort ourselves into like-minded factions, and a chunk of the rational faction moves to France, we’re screwed. We really can’t afford to lose Neil DeGrasse Tyson to the Riviera. James Hansen, Pam Ronald … stay!

12 Healthy Food Swaps For Your Favorite Refined Carbs

Make no mistake: Carbohydrates are essential—they’re the body’s main energy source. But the more refined a carb is, the worse it is for you: “Refined carbs have had much of the fiber and good-for-you compounds stripped away, which makes them less nutritious and filling,” says Rachel Meltzer Warren, RDN, a nutritionist in Jersey City, New Jersey. Minimally processed kinds, on the other hand, are typically a package of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and starch that digest more slowly and keep you fuller longer, she adds. These tweaks let you replace refined carbs (white flour and sugar, say) with more nutritious choices (veggies, pulses, whole grains) for a full tummy and steady energy. Health.com: 18 Health Benefits of Whole Grains Breakfast Instead of quiche, whip up breakfast stuffed peppers. Crack 2 eggs into 2 halves of a bell pepper and bake them at 350 degrees until the eggs are firm (about 25 minutes). Top with fresh chives or a dried spice, like thyme. “The peppers spice up regular eggs but eliminate the crust and cream of a quiche,” says Meltzer Warren. “Plus, they’re beautiful to serve.” Instead of French toast, make protein pancakes. Mash a ripe banana in a bowl, add 1 egg, and whisk with 2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour. Pour the mixture on a griddle over low heat and cook the way you would with normal pancake batter. “Fruit contains carbohydrates, but bananas also offer fiber, potassium, and vitamin C, unlike slices of French-toast bread,” says Meltzer Warren. Instead of a bagel and lox, have a smoked-salmon omelet on sprouted-grain bread. Make an omelet with 2 eggs, 1 slice of smoked salmon, and a sprinkle of goat cheese and chives. “You get the same flavors that you would from a bagel with cream cheese and lox, but incorporating the eggs and sprouted grains will keep you satisfied a lot longer,” says Meltzer Warren. Instead of a blueberry scone, try berry oats. Heat up a handful of frozen blueberries, grate lemon zest, then fold both into 1/4 cup rolled oats prepared with hot water and a dash of cinnamon. Sprinkle with chia seeds for a protein boost. Oats are full of fiber, so they’re a super carb (unlike the added sugars and white flour found in many coffee-shop pastries). Lunch Instead of a chicken wrap, prep deli lettuce cups. Scrap the carb-heavy wrap and use a large leaf of Boston lettuce as the outer shell. Inside, layer a few pieces of sliced chicken breast, a slice of cheese, a drizzle of honey mustard, and a pickle spear. Hold together with a toothpick. Instead of a bag of potato chips, snack on Brussels sprouts crisps. Separate the leaves of these antioxidant-rich veggies, then toss them in a bit of olive oil and sea salt. Bake at 350 degrees, turning them every 5 minutes or so, until they are browned and crisp around the edges. “It may require some time, but the crispy leaves are so crunchy and delicious that it’s worth it,” says Tami Ross, RS, a dietician and diabetes educator in Lexington, Kentucky. Instead of croutons on salad, add sunflower seeds. Whether croutons are baked or fried, they don’t pack much nutritional value. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds on salads to add crunch along with healthy fats, vitamin E, and a bit of fiber. Instead of a burrito bowl, choose a Mexican-style salad. Replace the bed of rice with a bed of shredded lettuce, then top with meat, vegetables, black beans, pico de gallo, and guacamole. “You’re still getting the same flavors in each bit, just with a healthier green base,” says Marissa Lippert, RD, owner of Nourish Kitchen and Table in New York City. Health.com: The Best Vegetable Spiralizer for Every Budget Dinner Instead of sushi, order sashimi pieces with a side of miso soup and edamame. “The issue with sushi is that if you’re hungry, you need a lot of it to satisfy you,” explains Lippert. “There’s so little protein within all that white rice.” Sashimi comes without the rice (and refined carbs), and paring it with a side of miso soup and edamame, which packs fiber, helps better tame your appetite. (A cup of edamame also has 22 grams of protein.) Instead of traditional pizza, make a socca flatbread. “Chickpea flour and water bake into a flatbread that works perfectly as a pizza crust,” says Meltzer Warren. (Chickpea flour has fewer carbs and calories than white or whole-wheat flour, and it’s a better source of protein.) Whisk 1 cup chickpea flour, 1 cup water, 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoon salt—then let the dough sit for half an hour. Preheat oven to 450 degrees; place a cast-iron pan inside for 5 minutes. Remove pan, pour in 1 tablespoon oil, and swirl. Pour half the batter into pan; bake until cooked through (about 8 minutes). Add cheese and toppings. Return pan to oven; bake until cheese is melted and toppings are warm. Repeat with other half of dough. Instead of spaghetti, opt for zoodles with meatballs and marinara sauce. Spiralized zucchini gives the illusion of noodles and pairs well with a variety of traditional pasta sauces, says Meltzer Warren. The veggie on its own may not fill you up, notes Lippert; you can top your bowl with a scoop of whole-wheat pasta and grass-fed beef meatballs. Instead of mashed potatoes, choose roasted cauliflower. Toss florets with 1/4 cup oil, a dash of cayenne, and a pinch of salt; roast at 425 degrees, tossing regularly, for about 40 minutes. “Cauliflower has a similar mouthfeel as a potato,” says Meltzer Warren, “and the spice gives it the appeal of Cajun fries.” This article originally appeared on Health.com […]
