Aides warned Trump not to attack North Korea's leader personally before his fiery U.N. address

Today 10:51 GMT

Senior aides to President Trump repeatedly warned him not to deliver a personal attack on North Korea’s leader at the United Nations this week, saying insulting the young despot in such a prominent venue could irreparably escalate tensions and shut off any chance for negotiations to defuse the nuclear crisis.

Trump’s derisive description of Kim Jong Un as “Rocket Man on a suicide mission” and his threat to “totally destroy” North Korea were not in a speech draft that several senior officials reviewed and vetted Monday, the day before Trump gave his first address to the U.N. General Assembly, two U.S. officials said.

FDA approves medical scope with disposable cap to fight superbug infections

Today 10:50 GMT

Seeking to prevent superbug outbreaks, federal health officials said they have approved the first gastrointestinal medical scope with a disposable cap for use in the U.S.. The Food and Drug Administration said that the design of the new duodenoscope by Japanese device maker Pentax should make it easier to remove dangerous bacteria that can become trapped inside these reusable instruments.

“We believe the new disposable distal cap represents a major step toward lowering the risk of future infections associated with these devices,” Dr. William Maisel, the acting director of the FDA’s Office of Device Evaluation, said in a statement Wednesday. “We encourage companies to continue to pursue innovations that will help reduce the risk to patients.”

Today 10:52 GMT

She said that by using a mirror test based on smell, Dr. Horowitz “was able to observe cognitive capacities that we didn’t realize dogs had.”

Dogs have not, and that has raised questions about whether dogs might recognize themselves if another sense were tested. Alexandra Horowitz, a psychologist at Barnard College who studies the behavior of dogs and has written several books about them, decided to give dogs a chance at showing self-recognition on their own, smelly terms.
