Trump Makes a Show of Un-Signing Arms Trade Treaty at NRA Convention
With Democrats in Congress reluctant to work with him on legislative proposals, President Donald Trump has been casting about for actions he can take on his own. When it comes to guns, he has long promised to do nothing that would restrict the rights of gun owners.
But doing nothing isn’t very photogenic for a showman like Trump. So on Friday, in front of the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in Indianapolis, the President made a big show of undoing something.
In a nearly hourlong speech, he announced he was pulling the U.S. from the Arms Trade Treaty and instructing Congress to stop the ratification process and “return the treaty back to me in the Oval Office where I will dispose of it.”
在将近一个小时的演讲中，他宣布美国将退出《武器贸易条约》(Arms Trade Treaty) ，并指示国会停止批准程序,"把条约送回椭圆形办公室，我将在那里处理它。"

Canada-wide salmonella linked to Celebrate brand frozen profiteroles and eclairs
Health officials in British Columbia have pinned down the source of a Canada-wide salmonella outbreak that took months to investigate.
Dr. Eleni Galanis with the B.C. Centre for Disease Control says investigators have linked the bacteria-caused gastrointestinal illness to Celebrate brand frozen profiteroles and mini chocolate eclairs.
不列颠哥伦比亚疾病控制中心的 Eleni Galanis 博士说，研究人员已经将细菌引起的胃肠道疾病与庆祝品牌冷冻空心甜饼和迷你巧克力泡芙联系起来。
Galanis said cases started appearing in November, but it wasn't until last week that investigators were able to piece the clues together after a third infected person reported eating a cream puff.
