Snarky tweets feature sweet pictures of grandparents to mock Trump's travel ban

Pharma news - June 30, 2017 - 2:30pm

The Trump administration's travel ban from earlier this year just won't go away. Now it's affecting grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and other family members that don't make the cut as "bona fide" relations — at least, as the State Department sees it. SEE ALSO: Hilarious photo series shows the alarmingly normal lives of immigrants After winding its way through the Supreme Court, the watered-down temporary ban went into effect Thursday evening. It bans people coming from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen from getting visas, unless they have a business or academic connection to the U.S. or qualify as certain family relationships. So, while parents and stepparents (and even mothers-in-law) can come to America if they have relations here, it's tough noogies to Grandma and Grandpa.  Only in America is your grandmother not a bona fide relationship. #MuslimBan #NoMuslimBanEVER #thisisnotnormal — Faiza N. Ali (@faiza_n_ali) June 29, 2017 Grandkids who know their grandma wouldn't hurt anyone — let alone be a threat to America — quickly rallied against the ban's stipulations. The hashtag #GrandparentsNotTerrorists was started to show how loving and important grandparents are to families, especially to grandchildren who live a world away. My grandmother is the purest soul I know. Does she look like a terrorist to you, @realDonaldTrump? #GrandparentsNotTerrorists #NoMuslimBan pic.twitter.com/sgS1rVXDT7 — Sarah Khatami (@SarahKhatami) June 29, 2017 For 19-year-old Sarah Khatami, a rising junior at Boston's Berklee College of Music, the ban hits close to home. Her grandmother immigrated from Iran to her family's home in Pittsburgh about 11 years ago and became a citizen after five years living in the U.S. This ban easily could have affected her. "We're very lucky and happy she's living with us in America," Khatami said in a phone call Friday, after she posted a baby picture with her grandma. In her tweet she asked Trump, "My grandmother is the purest soul I know. Does she look like a terrorist to you?" For her family who immigrated to the U.S. 30 years ago, she said "it feels like you are not wanted in this country that you tried so hard to be part of." Other photos went up showing the same "threatening" grandparents who now won't be able to get visas to visit family living in America. Others posted pictures of their relatives who already live in the U.S., like Khatami's grandmother, but who easily could have been affected under the temporary ban. Because Trump doesn't think I have a bonafide relationship with my grandpa.... #GrandparentsNotTerrorists #NoMuslimBan pic.twitter.com/fncoLcLWkQ — Ida Adibi (@ida_adibi) June 29, 2017 Is this the face of terror? #grandparentsnotterrorists pic.twitter.com/Unw4Yu4o4U — Ala Hashemi-Haeri (@AlaHashemi) June 29, 2017 If my loving baba didn't get a citizenship from the US, he would be banned from the US. @realDonaldTrump #GrandparentsNotTerrorists pic.twitter.com/q1A6EagLJP — Arya (@misingnoglic) June 29, 2017 The new criteria for the #Muslimban is absurd! My #GrandparentsNotTerrorists. pic.twitter.com/izM6mv07nx — Maryam Jamali (@jamali_maryam) June 29, 2017 My late Iranian grandpa, a former physics professor who loved good Scotch and always made me laugh. #GrandparentsNotTerrorists pic.twitter.com/fYhM7j3AZy — Paria (@CaliParia) June 29, 2017 Does my Iranian grandmother on the left look dangerous to you? Supreme Court action re #MuslimBan is ridiculous #GrandparentsNotTerrorists pic.twitter.com/CiKeF1i8Uy — Maria Afsharian (@MariaAfsharian) June 29, 2017 Hugging my grandma extra tight tonight #GrandparentsNotTerrorists pic.twitter.com/9KohdhQxtJ — Camilia Razavi (@CamiliaRazavi) June 29, 2017 These sweet photos are reminiscent of other online campaigns highlighting the ridiculousness of anti-Muslim and immigrant rhetoric, like the #ScaryImmigrant photos of families doing super normal things like going to graduation, mowing the lawn, or drinking a beer.  After the San Bernardino shooting in 2015, media photos of the suspects' apartment were released, which prompted #MuslimApartments to show that most living rooms and homes are beyond ordinary. Once again, the exception is not the rule. Just look at these grandmas and grandpas. There's even an Instagram devoted to all the banned grandmas (and grandpas) that went up Friday.

U.S. farmers running out of opportunities to sell corn at profit

Pharma news - June 30, 2017 - 2:14pm

By Mark Weinraub WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. farmers who have been holding out for higher prices for their corn may finally sell their grain below target levels in the next few weeks as a government report released on Friday underscores the huge supplies left in storage bins around the country, analysts said. The U.S. Agriculture Department said that farmers still had 2.841 billion bushels of corn in their storage bins as of June 1, the fifth most ever for that time period. It was the highest June 1 on-farm corn storage recording in 29 years and an indication that the market could remain under pressure until harvest.
