San Francisco's Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on Tuesday for an ordinance it hopes will tackle the "growing health epidemic of youth vaping.". The supervisors voted to amend the health code to ban the sale and distribution of e-cigarettes, and the final vote is expected next week. "This is about thinking about the next generation of users and thinking about protecting the overall health and sending a message to the rest of the state and the country: Follow our lead," Supervisor Ahsha Safai said. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that in 2018, 4.9 million middle and high school students were vaping, up from 3.6 million in 2017. The e-cigarette company Juul is based in San Francisco, and says vaping is a safer alter.

Facebook has its own cryptocurrency now. But why, exactly? What's it for ? Officially unveiled on Tuesday , the new digital currency, called Libra, will go live in 2020 . Facebook already has 27 partners in the venture, including corporate heavy hitters like Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, eBay, Uber, and Lyft, plus some venture capital firms and nonprofits. They hope to have 100 partners or more by the launch. The idea is to create an open-source digital currency, using the same blockchain technology that bitcoin was based on. Any customer could have a digital "wallet" of Libra, and could conduct transactions in Libra with any participating business and across any participating network. Libra will initially be available to the billions of Facebo.

Max Landis, the filmmaker behind movies like Netflix's Bright and son of director John Landis, has been accused of emotional and sexual abuse by eight women. Landis is the subject of a new exposé published by The Daily Beast on Tuesday after rumors of Landis' alleged misconduct spread in 2017 and after an anonymous woman accused him of sexual assault in February. In it, an anonymous woman referred to as Julie alleges Landis "choked me until I passed out" and would "hold me down and rape me while I said 'no' over and over."

Many U.S. jails fail to stop inmate suicides, a joint investigation by The Associated Press and the University of Maryland's Capital News Service found. Suicide has long been the leading cause of death in U.S. jails. For example, the 50-state reporting effort found more than 300 suicides in local jails from 2015 to 2017, but that number comes from just nine states — the other 41 states reportedly did not provide numbers or offered only incomplete data. A series of lawsuits all across the country have argued that many of the deaths were avoidable, AP reports . Of the 400 court files reviewed by the news organizations, 135 involved suicides, and another 30 involved suicide attempts. About a third of those cases allege that the inmates who com.

1. The Federal Reserve will begin two days of meetings on Tuesday, and could potentially discuss laying the groundwork for future interest rate cuts. The Fed and its chairman, Jerome Powell, are facing increasing pressure from President Trump to cut interest rates. Powell has previously hinted at lowering rates, but the change is unlikely to occur until at least next month. Trump, who appointed Powell to his position as chairman, has been an outspoken critic of the Fed and said recently of the chairman: "I disagree with him entirely." The Fed has raised interest rates seven times under Trump in an effort to curb inflation. Powell will announce new economic projections at a press conference on Wednesday. [ The Hill , Reuters ]. 2.

1. The Pentagon announced it will send more than 1,000 additional U.S. troops to the Middle East after recent attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman have increased tensions between the U.S. and Iran. U.S. Central Command Chief General Frank McKenzie requested the deployment, which comes after 1,500 troops were sent to the region late last month after similar attacks took place. Acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan said the recent "hostile behavior" of Iranian forces threatens U.S. "personnel and interests across the region." The U.S. has implicated Iran in last week's attacks, but Iran continues to deny having any involvement, saying the accusations are "unfounded.". [ Politico , BBC ]. 2. The U.S. announced Monday evening it will follow.

Kyle Kashuv might deserve to be forgiven. It's possible he doesn't deserve to be forever stigmatized for the stupid, racist comments he made two years ago. He definitely deserves a chance to show he's learned from his mistakes. But he is not entitled to demonstrate or earn that redemption at Harvard University. And he won't get that opportunity. Kashuv — a conservative activist who survived the shooting massacre last year at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida — revealed to the world on Monday that his admission to Harvard had been rescinded . The rejection came after texts and documents emerged showing he had used racist, sexist, and anti-Semitic language as a 16-year-old. Kashuv apologized, but to no avail: He'll now have to g.

The Trump regime is attempting to gin up a war with Iran. First Trump reneged on Obama's nuclear deal with the country for no reason, then he slapped them with more economic sanctions for no reason, and then, pushed by National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, he moved massive military forces onto Iran's doorstep to heighten tensions further. Now, after a series of attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman — none of which were American — that the administration blames on Iran, Pompeo says the U.S. is "considering a full range of options," including war. (Iran has categorically denied any involvement.). The American people appear largely uninterested in this idea. But unless some real mass pressure is mounted

From the very beginning of his presidential aspirations, Donald Trump promised to Make America Great Again . But when was America great? Most commentators assume that Trump, like many nostalgic conservatives, means the initial two decades following World War II — a time of low immigration and a massive surge in economic growth, when many middle-class American workers benefited from well-paid manufacturing jobs. There's obviously some truth to this. But nearly two and a half years into the Trump administration, it's possible to discern another, more distant object of the president's admiration. That is the 19th century — the time before the United Nations, NATO, and the laws, norms, and institutions of the liberal international order, includ.

In a tweet Monday night, President Trump said that "next week," Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents "will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States." Trump appears to be referring to a real plan "in preparation for months that aims to round up thousands of migrant parents and children in a blitz operation across major U.S. cities," The Washington Post notes , but "publicizing a future law enforcement operation is unheard of at ICE.". "U.S. officials with knowledge of the preparations have said in recent days that the operation was not imminent, and ICE officials said late Monday night that they were not aware that the president planned to divulge their

Just hours after announcing the United States planned on cutting off aid to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, the State Department on Monday night said it will move forward with $432 million in projects and grants already approved by Congress. The Trump administration said it was stopping aid as a way to pressure the countries into doing something about the high number of undocumented migrants from Central America coming to the United States.

Rep. Katie Porter (D-Calif.) on Monday shared that after "weeks of study, deliberation, and conversations with Orange County families," she has "decided to support an impeachment investigation of the president.". Porter was the first Democrat ever elected in her Republican-leaning district, and she is now the first freshman House member from California to call for President Trump's impeachment. "I have not come to this easily," she said. "I come to this decision after much deliberation, and I know — deeply — what this means for our democracy.". Most of the more than 60 House Democrats who have voiced their support of impeachment come from liberal districts, and Republicans are already hoping to flip Porter's seat back to red next year, the Lo.
