Health officials now recommend that people cover their faces in public places. Are masks effective? Here's everything you need to know:. How do masks fight COVID-19? The mouth and nose are usually where the coronavirus first sets up camp, and also serve as the portals for spreading the virus to new hosts. The saliva of infected people teems with virus particles, which are emitted in droplets when they cough or sneeze. Smaller drops, called aerosols, are launched when a person speaks or even just breathes.

Lots of us will check out Saturday's SpaceX launch, assuming the weather cooperates. After all, it has been nearly a decade since astronauts launched into orbit from American soil. And it will be the first time a privately-built rocket — a pretty cool-looking one at that — takes them there. Also, you know, it's an Elon Musk thing. Of course, the tech entrepreneur and multibillionaire has bigger ambitions than merely running a shuttle service to the International Space Station. He famously wants to make humanity a "." That means colonizing the Moon, then Mars, and then beyond. Musk, or maybe X Æ A-Xiii, is coming for you, Titan! Yet the novelty will quickly wear off for most of us. Far fewer will probably tune into future launches. Even the

While some businesses reopen, "restaurants and other small businesses are closing up shop for good," and several national retailers have declared bankruptcy. "Permanent layoffs are more likely at factories as consumer spending declines," and hospitality businesses such as MGM Resorts have darkened their outlook on rehiring furloughed employees.

The magazine announced last year that Jenner was the youngest self-made billionaire ever, but now it says her business is "significantly smaller, and less profitable, than the family has spent years" leading the industry to believe.

Forbes estimates Jenner is actually worth "just under $900 million" — which still isn't too shabby! Jenner, meanwhile, tweeted "I can name a list of 100 things more important right

1. President Trump on Thursday signed an executive order seeking to chip away at over content posted on their platforms. Trump's announcement came two days after Twitter for the first time labeled two of his tweets "potentially misleading." Trump said the "unchecked power" of social media giants presents a dire threat to free speech, and he told federal agencies to review protections for companies such as Twitter and Facebook under a 1996 law shielding websites from lawsuits. Critics said Trump was overstepping his authority and threatening the First Amendment rights of private companies. "(Trump) is trying to steal for himself the power of the courts and Congress to rewrite decades of settled law," said Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.). []. 2. Riote.
