The Boating Trip Perfect for Leaf Peepers
Jennifer BainThere she stood, across the canal from our houseboat, a sugar maple with leaves in shades of gold, orange, red and green. She gracefully submitted to endless admirers. Amorous couples who locked lips under her brilliant fall canopy. People who used her as a backdrop for their “grams.” Kids who rolled around in her fallen leaves. A woman in a sparkly, body-hugging gown. And me, at the start of a leaf peeping journey out of Ottawa, the Canadian capital.She is a sugar maple, a lover of full sun and deep, rich soil. Three things you might not know about this species when you first see her on the banks of the Rideau Canal between the National Arts Centre and the Flags of Canada square. It’s the national tree of Canada. It releases the sweet sap that becomes maple syrup. Its leaf is showcased on the Canadian flag.I studied this captivating tree from a 44-foot, four-bedroom luxury houseboat in late September as temperatures soared to 80F. I popped a kayak in the canal and paddled past her to the Paris-inspired “love locks” attached to the Corktown Bridge. I walked by the tree at dusk on my way to eat chef Sheila Flaherty’s Inuit country food (caribou, Arctic char and cloudberries) on the 1 Elgin patio while the HOROJO Trio performed “soul rockin’ rhythm and blues” from a floating stage across the canal.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Armenians Beg Putin to Send Secret Soldiers For Their War in Nagorno-Karabakh
Aziz Karimov/GettyMOSCOW—After several weeks of fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the contested mountain region of Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenians have all but stopped hoping for any help from their ally Russia.Under a mutual defense pact known as the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO)—the Russian equivalent to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization—Moscow has pledged to send troops to defend member states like Armenia if they are under attack. But Armenians aren’t holding their breath, even as the death toll mounts and Azerbaijan gains ground in the contested region thanks to their superior drone power.“Every Armenian all across the world feels an existential threat to our nation,” an Armenian politician, Arthur Paronyan, told The Daily Beast. “But nobody expects the CSTO to help. It is a dead organization.”Read more at The Daily Beast.

Trump’s Ex-Doc, Ronny Jackson, Promised To Help Pharma Execs. They Then Bankrolled His Campaign.
Tom Williams/GettyAs President Donald Trump’s former White House physician Ronny Jackson mounted a Republican congressional bid this year, he got a huge assist from a pair of local businessmen who not only financed a super PAC backing Jackson’s candidacy but also rented office space to his campaign and joined the campaign’s “district leadership team.”Now it appears Jackson has helped those two businessmen position themselves for a piece of what they say is potentially billions of dollars in pharmaceutical manufacturing business that soon could come to Amarillo, the north Texas city that would be part of Jackson’s district should he win.The businessmen working with Jackson are Alex Fairly and former Amarillo mayor Jerry Hodge. And they’ve made no secret about their desires to bring in taxpayer funding for the industry.Read more at The Daily Beast.

The Right Way and the Wrong Way to Cover Hunter Biden
Kris Connor/WireImage/GettyI don’t think the Hunter Biden “scandal” is worthy of tipping an election. But I do think it’s deserving of coverage. Yet, some in the media disagree, like NPR’s managing editor, who dismissed it, saying, “We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories…” With all due respect, this is a legitimate story, and sitting on it till after Nov. 3 disserves the public, and could even have the unintended consequence of stoking additional fears about the “fake news” media.We should not hype it. We should not hide it. What we should do is put it in proper perspective. Following is my attempt to do just that.Here’s what we know: Hunter Biden, the son of Joe Biden, was paid a lot of money by various companies—not because of his expertise or intellect, but because of his last name. This means that when Joe Biden said, “My son did nothing wrong,” he wasn’t exactly shooting straight with us. Trading on a powerful name is not illegal or uncommon, but is a form of corruption. And we should be honest about that.Read more at The Daily Beast.
