Fiat Chrysler will buy back about 300,000 Ram pickup trucks in the biggest such action in U.S. history as part of a potentially expensive deal with U.S. safety regulators to settle legal problems in about two-dozen recalls. Some of the trucks, which are the company’s top-selling vehicle, have steering problems that have lingered without proper repairs for more than two years, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The buyback is part of a larger settlement between the government and the automaker that includes a record $105 million fine and the appointment of an independent recall monitor, all for mishandling about two dozen recalls.

Yes, researches at Purdue University say that you can now taste something and say “Hmmm… tastes fatty.” Assembling 28 special tasters to sample a variety of look-alike mixtures, researchers say subjects could distinguish fatty acids from the other tastes, and that’s good enough to get its own category. You see, to qualify as a basic taste, a flavor has to have unique chemical signature, have specific receptors in our bodies for the taste, and people have to distinguish it from other tastes. So there ya go. Fat, is a taste. And by the way, it is very unpleasant. Incidentally, “umami” is another taste you may have missed. It’s a relative newcomer, having been crowned the 5th basic taste 30 years ago. Asparagus, tomatoes, some meats… its an earthy, roasted flavor. Chef Katersky fills you in.

The Waller County, Texas DA’s office held a news conference on Thursday to discuss the autopsy findings on the death of Sandra Bland. Assistant DA Warren Diepraam said the cause of death was hanging and that there were no signs of marks or wounds to her head that would be consistent with a violent struggle. But he also pointed out that there is still a question in this case of whether it was a voluntary suicide or a homicide in the Waller County jail.

Donald Trump has made it clear, that if he feels he is being treated unfairly by the Republican National Committee during his campaign for the nomination, he will be more compelled to run as a third party candidate. He has implied that if he is beaten for the nomination fair and square, he will be more inclined not to, and back the Republican candidate. Polling indications are, that if Trump were to run as a third party candidate in November, he would take enough of the Far-Right with him, to make a GOP victory extremely difficult. And Trump knows it. So there you see the conundrum facing the Republican party. How do you criticize a candidate whose support you will probably need to have any chance in a general election?

New York became the first state Wednesday to authorize a minimum wage hike for tens of thousands of fast food workers. Fast food workers paid $8.75 an hour now would make $15 an hour by 2018. The minimum wage hike would apply only to fast food workers and the franchise owners say it’s unfair. But the state says it’s tired of subsidizing billion dollar corporations who aren’t paying their workers enough.
