Coffee is largely produced in the Coffee Belt, located between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, where countries such as Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia and Vietnam have provided the best climate for coffee trees, which need constant heat to survive. Armstrong recently joined a group of farmers taking part in the largest-ever coffee growing endeavor in the United States. "It seems more logical to invest in new coffee varieties that could be grown in the same current geographies," he said. Rowland said researchers are planting coffee trees close to citrus, an intercropping technique used in other parts of the world as larger trees help hold winds and provide shade to coffee trees. That, in turn, could help in the selection of optimal coffee varieties for the region in the future.

The Taliban's foreign minister has asked for the regime's envoy to speak at the UN General Assembly. He's contesting Afghanistan's seat, which has been given to the ambassador representing the former government. When the Taliban previously ruled Afghanistan, they were not given a seat by the UN. Both parties are jockeying to speak during Afghanistan's slated spot as the final speech of September 27, the last day of this year's General Assembly. Officials will now have to decide whether to accept the Taliban's request, or let Isaczai continue as Afghanistan's ambassador under UN protocol.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott lauded state troopers for erecting a "steel barrier" of vehicles to stop people from crossing into the US. He said Texas is sending a message to those thinking about crossing the border that they may be jailed. Thousands of refugees seeking to enter the US are camped underneath a bridge in Del Rio, Texas. Thousands of Haitian refugees are camped underneath a bridge in Del Rio, Texas — a border town of around 35,000 on the about 150 miles west of San Antonio.

The beloved Central Park owl who captivated jaded New Yorkers before being killed in a truck collision had dangerous, "potentially lethal" levels rat poison in her system, authorities said Tuesday. "The bromadiolone level is potentially lethal but it is unclear if it played a direct role in the death of this owl, i.e. whether the anticoagulant affected the owl's ability to avoid collision with the vehicle," according to the report. The park uses "rodenticides that are listed as 'low to moderately low' non-target animal risk," according to parks representative Crystal Howard. "Predatory birds must hunt for their food and often, like their prey, find their food outside of park boundaries," Howard said in a statement.

U.S. corporate bonds perk up after stock selloff

REUTERS/Andrew Kelly/File PhotoCHICAGO (Reuters) - Like the U.S. stock market, the nation’s corporate bond market on Tuesday steadied one day after fear of contagion risk from debt-troubled China property developer Evergrande rattled global financial assets. Amid caution ahead of Wednesday’s Federal Reserve policy announcement, Wall Street clawed back some losses from Monday’s selloff and corporate debt offerings were returning after being sidelined by the market volatility, according to Refinitiv’s IFR. High-yield bond spreads rose on Monday, after falling last week to their lowest level since July in a sign of a general risk-on mood. The spread refers to the interest rate premium investors demand to hold corporate debt over safer Treasury bonds. The spread on the ICE BofA U.S. Corporate Index, a benchmark for investment-grade debt, increased only a basis point to 91 basis points on Monday.
