Why Australian PM got 40 minutes with President Biden



Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has met with U.S. President Joe Biden in Phnom Penh for the East Asia and ASEAN summits

During the 40 minute conversation, the two leaders discussed the critical AUKUS alliance between the UK, U.S., and Australia.

Coincidentally, the 40 minute conversation comes just hours before Biden is set to meet with China’s Xi Jinping.

Finding stability in the Indo-Pacific was front and centre during the discussion as both leaders face shared challenges.

The leaders also spoke about climate change and tackling environmental issues.

“Australia’s standing in the region has risen and that is a benefit for those who have respect for Australia’s position…

The United States is one of those.”

Anthony Albanese told reporters

The Australian leader also met with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, but a question mark looms over whether he will met with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“I had a brief conversation with Premier Li, it was very positive, it was constructive.

I’ve said repeatedly about the relationship with China that we should co-operate where we we can and that dialogue is always a good thing.”

Relations between the two began to dwindle amid the Covid-19 pandemic, when Australia backed the idea for an independent inquiry into the origins of the virus.

China is one of Australia’s largest trading partners and began to use this against the country down under.

China began to make changes to its trade policies, which was ultimately seen as an attempt to economically punish Australia.

However, new Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese is open to dialogue and cooperation.

“I think there is a great deal of goodwill here, certainly from Australia.

I have no reason to think there’s not goodwill on the Chinese side as well.”

Boston Dynamics’ electric marvel or robot contortionist?



Boston Dynamics has recently unveiled its latest creation, the electric Atlas robot, boasting enhanced agility and strength.

However, with its uncanny ability to contort and rise from the ground with an almost eerie grace, one might wonder if we’re witnessing the birth of the world’s first robot contortionist.

As this technological marvel flaunts its capabilities, one can’t help but ponder if we’re on the brink of a future where household chores will be effortlessly handled by robots moving like a fusion of ballet dancers and horror movie monsters.

With its cadaver-like movements and illuminated head, it’s hard not to speculate whether Atlas is destined to revolutionise robotics or simply rehearsing for a techno-horror rendition of The Nutcracker. As Boston Dynamics continues to push the boundaries of robotics, the line between science fiction and reality becomes increasingly blurred.

The Coffee confusion causing health concerns



As the morning sun peeks through the curtains, many reach for that familiar brew, kickstarting their day with a comforting cup of coffee.

It’s a ritual ingrained in cultures worldwide, offering a jolt of energy to combat the grogginess of dawn.

But when is the optimal time for that caffeine fix? According to registered dietitian Anthony DiMarino, RD, LD, the answer isn’t crystal clear.

Some experts suggest delaying that first sip until mid-morning or later. However, DiMarino reassures coffee lovers that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this dilemma.

Meanwhile, the science behind coffee production unveils fascinating insights into its instant variant. Whether produced through freeze-drying or spray-drying methods, instant coffee offers convenience without sacrificing flavor.

Yet, beyond convenience, recent studies delve deeper into coffee’s impact on our bodies. Research exploring the acute effects of decaffeinated versus caffeinated coffee reveals intriguing findings on reaction time, mood, and skeletal muscle strength.

Moreover, investigations into the gut microbiome shed light on coffee’s influence on liver cirrhosis patients. A study analyzing the duodenal microbiome in this population found correlations between coffee consumption and microbial richness and evenness.

So, as you sip your coffee and ponder the day ahead, consider not just the flavour in your cup but also the subtle impacts it may have on your body and mind.
