Donald Trump’s trade war with China could make opioid epidemic worse

 

The American struggle to curb opioid addiction could become collateral damage in President Donald Trump’s showdown on trade.

Trade tensions with allies were heightened by the White House announcement in March of tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. On Friday, another round of tariffs specifically targeting China took effect.

And that China focus could interrupt other trade-related issues — specifically, those targeting the flow of dangerous drugs like fentanyl into the United States.

Rumor: ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ Possibly Heading to These Familiar Locations

The Star Wars sequel trilogy has had the difficult task of finding a balance between delivering audiences new elements of the galaxy far, far away while also revisiting familiar faces and locations to help connect audiences to all nine episodes. Recent reports about filming locations for Episode IX might confirm that the film will head to locations that debuted in A New Hope and The Phantom Menace.

Who are Rey’s parents?” was one of the many questions left unanswered by 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and one given increased weight considering both the familiar focus of Star Wars as a franchise overall, and on the familial connections of Force users in the franchise in particular. In the two earlier trilogies, the central characters have literally all belonged to one family, which was a narrative explanation as to why their connections to the Force were so strong; with that as a ground rule, it shouldn’t be that surprising to find that fans expect some similar revelation coming regarding the current central character and Force user.
