Greece's northern neighbor inches toward NATO, EU memberships after the country's government agreed to change its name. The land-locked country of North Macedonia has been working to gain membership in NATO and the European Union. But until now, those efforts were being blocked by Greece, which is a member of both alliances. That is a big part of the reason why North Macedonia formally changed its name in February from the "Republic of Macedonia," a moniker it held since gaining independence in 1991 from the former Yugoslavia and one that Greece said threatened its cultural identity.

But there's a growing movement of Iowa farmers embracing more sustainable practices.
