- Irritation among US Hispanics with Biden’s wife for comparing them to “tacos”. The first lady of the United States affirmed that Hispanic Americans are “like breakfast with tacos here in San Antonio”: the first lady of the United States, Jill Biden, has been criticized in a statement by the National Association of Hispanic Journalists for comparing the citizens of Ibero-American origin with the traditional Mexican tapa, the taco.

- Ukraine will meet with Russia for grain export talks. The New York Times in its coverage of the war in Ukraine says negotiators will meet in Istanbul after months of talks that have made little headway. On the other hand, Russia risks angering allies like Venezuela and Iran by looking for buyers for its oil: Russian and Ukrainian negotiators are scheduled to meet in Istanbul on Wednesday in an increasingly desperate effort to release large quantities of grain. from Ukraine’s ports and ship them to a world facing rising hunger from a lack of those grains. Officials have been trying for months to break the stalemate without triggering an escalation in the war or, worse, a direct confrontation between Russia and NATO. The war in Ukraine is already contributing to a global food crisis that has pushed the price of vital staples like wheat and barley to record highs. On the energy issue, as Russia pushes to find new buyers for its oil to sidestep ever-tightening Western sanctions, it is cutting the market share of two of its allies, Iran and Venezuela, and triggering a price war. That could harm them all.

- NASA reveals the first images from the James Webb Space Telescope. The Washington Post highlights that NASA released the first full-color image and data set on Tuesday from the revolutionary $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope, and it’s quite a cosmic spectacle: colliding galaxies, a dying star stripped off layer by layer, a glorious stellar nursery and the interesting signs of water vapor and clouds on a giant planet revolving around a distant star. The telescope appears to be even more powerful than the people who dreamed it expected. It is capable of seeing further into the depths of space and time than the acclaimed Hubble, collecting the exquisitely faint infrared light emitted by the first stars and galaxies more than 13 billion years ago. “It sees things I never dreamed existed,” said lead project scientist John Mather, a Nobel laureate who began work on the telescope in 1995, after the images were released.
