Trump Picks Iowa Governor Branstad As U.S. Ambassador To China: Report

President-elect Donald Trump will nominate Iowa Governor Terry Branstad as the next U.S. ambassador to China, the world’s second-largest economy, a transition official said on Wednesday. The transition official confirmed the choice, first reported by Bloomberg, which said Branstad has accepted the job. His appointment may help to ease trade tensions between the two countries, the world’s two biggest agricultural producers, diplomats and trade experts said. In China, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang called Branstad an “old friend” of China when asked about the Bloomberg report but said Beijing would work with any U.S. ambassador. “We welcome him to play a greater role in advancing the development of China-U.S. relations,” he told a daily news briefing. Earlier, in the Iowa capital of Des Moines, a Branstad spokesman, Ben Hammes, said the reports of his nomination were “premature and not accurate.” His nomination suggests that Trump may be ready to take a less combative stance towards China than many expected, trade experts and diplomats said. Branstad called Chinese President Xi Jinping a “long-time friend” when Xi visited Iowa in February 2012, only nine months before he became the Chinese leader. Tensions between the countries have been worsening since Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in last month’s U.S. election. The New York real estate developer has said he intends to declare China a currency manipulator when he takes office on Jan. 20 and has threatened to impose punitive tariffs on Chinese goods coming into the United States. DUMPING ALLEGATIONS Specific U.S. trade concerns include allegations that China is dumping steel and aluminum in global markets below the cost of production, hurting American producers. In the agricultural sector, the U.S. has been unable to get Beijing to lift anti-dumping measures on U.S. broiler chicken products and an animal feed ingredient known as distillers’ dried grains (DDGS). China is one of Iowa’s biggest export markets, so Branstad is well-placed to deal with China-U.S. trade issues, said Professor Huang Jing, an expert on Chinese politics at the National University of Singapore. “This really sends a message that Donald Trump wants to handle China at the bilateral relationship level,” he said. Branstad’s personal ties with Xi could also help to ease U.S. access to Beijing’s leadership, the diplomats and trade experts said. Still, they said his many years running Iowa, the top U.S. state for production of corn, soybeans and pigs, may not have prepared him for the more delicate tasks of diplomacy with Beijing. During Xi’s 2012 trip, Chinese soybean buyers announced they would buy more than $4 billion in U.S. soybeans that year. Since then, the United States has grown more reliant on China’s voracious appetite for commodities to spur demand for everything from oil to corn as global oversupply has hurt prices. Volumes of U.S. agricultural exports to China hit record levels in 2015. “It’s natural that they should continue this good relationship with China,” said Pan Chenjun, senior analyst at Rabobank in China. Trump’s dealings with China have been in particular focus since Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen called him last week to congratulate him on winning the election. The call caused consternation in Beijing, which sees the self-ruled island as a renegade province and objects to other governments dealing with it. Trump’s conversation with Tsai was the first such contact with Taiwan by a U.S. president-elect or president since President Jimmy Carter adopted a “one-China” policy in 1979, recognizing only the Beijing government.

Russian Oven: Napoleon cake

Invented in the 18th century in France, Napoleon cake for some reason became Russia's favorite pastry. Served in restaurants and cooked at home, this multi-layer cake with pastry cream is the first choice for a holiday feast. The cake initially named mille-feuille (which means a "million layers" in French) was brought to Russia in the early 19th century and was widely cooked during the festivities after the victory against the French army of Napoléon Bonaparte in 1812. The cake tickled Russians’ fancy so much that after two centuries many of them consider it to be a part of their national culinary heritage.  Putting aside its splendid taste (creamy and tender, it just melts in the mouth), Napoleon cake’s enduring appeal can be explained by the simplicity of the ingredients. Milk, butter, sugar, eggs: you really don't need anything special.  So let's begin! For the dough you need: 460 g (3.7 cups) wheat flour 260g (1.15 cup) butter 160g (0.6 cup) ice water 15g (3 teaspoons) vinegar (6%) 1,5g (1/3 teaspoon) salt   Let's go! Cut cold butter into cubes, add sifted flour and salt. Rub everything into crumbs Add vinegar to ice water, then mix into the dough Cut the dough into 12 pieces and put them into a covered plastic container. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes, then put into the fridge Take the pieces of dough one by one from the fridge and immediately roll each of them on the cutting board dredged with flour in advance. Cut the layers according to the desired size. Collect the cuts and put them aside (you'll need them for decoration). Put each individual layer on the baking paper and prick many times with a fork. Bake at 200°C (392°F) for 7-9 minutes till corn colored. Repeat 11 more times.    Now for the cream. These are the ingredients: 700g (2.9 cups) milk 200g (0.9 cup) sugar 3 eggs 160g (0.7 cup) butter 30g (0.2 cup) starch 10g (2 teaspoons) vanilla sugar Here we go! Mix eggs with sugar, whip the blend Add starch, stir thoroughly Boil milk in a pot and pour into the egg blend. Put the blend on medium heat, stir till thickening Pour the blend into the bowl, let it cool to 30 °C(86°F). Continue stirring. Add butter and mix again    Now we assemble the cake. Oil the plate with cream, put the first layer on it. Put the other layers on top (3-4 tablespoons cream per layer). Press down each layer Oil the top and sides of the cake with the rest of the cream Take the dough cuts and put them on a baking pan. Bake for 7-9 minutes, then blend into crumbs. Add them to the top and sides of the cake Tip: don't eat the cake immediately. To get the best taste, leave it for around 2 hours at room temperature, then put in the fridge for 10-12 hours or overnight.  Enjoy! Russian Oven is a video series devoted to Russian pastries, featuring traditional age-old pies and cakes, inventive cookies and tarts of recent years, plus Soviet classics and much more. Stay tuned!

Teen Asks Trump Aide How She Can Work For An Accused Sexual Predator

Kellyanne Conway, campaign manager and top aide to President-elect Donald Trump, reportedly chastised a 17-year-old student for asking about Trump’s history of sexual assault. On Wednesday morning, The Hill reported that Conway was speaking at an event in Washington, D.C. that was sponsored by University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. When Conway opened the floor to questions, a female high school student asked the senior Trump advisor how she can “rationalize” working for a man who has been accused of sexual assault.  “Donald Trump has negated claims that he sexually assaulted women but also admitted to a tape where he seemed to be describing sexual assault,” the student asked, according to Politico. “How do you rationalize that as a woman and also as his campaign manager?” The young woman (who was later identified as the daughter of Mother Jones reporter David Corn) was referring to the “Access Hollywood” video leaked in October that featured Trump bragging that he grabs women “by the pussy.” At the time, many Republicans condemned Trump for the video, but Conway was measured in her response. She called Trump’s language “disgusting” yet still defended him by saying he was “gracious and a gentleman.” The President-elect has also been accused of sexually assaulting over a dozen women.  According to AP reporter Steve Peoples who was live-tweeting the event, the teen’s question was met with applause from the crowd. Crowd here applauds when questioner asks Kellyanne Conway how, as a woman, she reconciled Trump's comments re: sexual assault.— Steve Peoples (@sppeoples) November 30, 2016 Conway referred to the “Access Hollywood” video as an attack on Trump in her response to the teen. She also said: Women are tired of the same argument and the same thing you are presenting to me right now. I’m glad that people looked at [those attacks] and said, “You know what? That’s an argument that will not create a single job in my community, not bring back a single of the 70,000 factories that have been closed, will not deter one member of ISIS from doing their bloodletting here or anywhere else in the world.” She said that Clinton should have gotten “60 or 62 percent of the female vote,” but she didn’t because, according to Conway, women are “tired of the same argument.” Conway added that the young woman was “trying to be personally mean” by asking the question.  In a rather confounding conclusion, Politico reported that Conway told the 17-year-old high school student: “For you to use sexual assault to try to make news here I think is unfortunate, but it also doesn’t matter because Donald Trump promised he’ll be a president of all Americans.” If you’re wondering how sexual violence gets normalized, this is how.  http://testkitchen.huffingtonpost.com/624060 -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
