FDA warns leading e-cigarette maker Juul about its marketing practices

(CNN)The US Food and Drug Administration on Monday warned leading e-cigarette maker Juul Labs about illegally marketing its product as a safer alternative to cigarettes. The agency requested documents related to marketing, including scientific evidence and data such as consumer perception studies “related to whether these statements and representations explicitly or implicitly convey that JUUL products pose less risk, are less harmful, present reduced exposure, are safer than other tobacco products or that the products are smoking cessation products. In November, the FDA revealed that vaping had increased nearly 80% among high schoolers and 50% among middle schoolers since a year earlier. Public health experts have said that Juul has largely propelled the rise, commanding about 75% of the e-cigarette …

We Might Have Found Another Interstellar Comet, And This One’s Coming Closer

On August 30 astronomers at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory detected what looked like a perfectly ordinary comet. However, excitement is rising with each new observation of its movement through the skies. Astronomers now think the object currently known as gb00234 has a hyperbolic orbit, meaning it comes from outside the Solar System, only the second such object we have observed. Better yet, it is coming closer, and by the end of the year it could be so bright you can see it with a backyard telescope. The discovery of Oumuamua in 2017 was a historic development, the first time humanity had knowingly observed a visitor to the Solar System. The fact that it was such an unusual object, with a length to width …

India is trying to reconnect with lost lunar lander on the surface of the moon

(CNN)India has located the lander from its Chandrayaan-2 mission to soft land a rover on the moon but has not yet been able to establish communication, India’s space agency said. Its descent went as planned until it reached an altitude of around 2 kilometers above the moon’s surface. “Subsequently the communication from the lander to ground station was lost. The data is being analyzed,” said K. Sivan, chairman of ISRO. A soft landing seeks to minimize damage to the lander and its contents by controlling the speed of its descent. ISRO said the mission was “highly complex” and “represented a significant technological leap” compared with other missions. The next phase would have been for the robotic rover, named Pragyan (meaning …

New strain of toxin-producing strep A emerges in UK

Blood poisoning Scarlet fever is a very contagious infection that mostly affects young children. The number of children with scarlet fever soared in 2014 and two years later there was an increase in cases of invasive strep A, where the bug penetrates deeper into the body and causes problems such as sepsis (blood poisoning). The biggest killer you may not know Sepsis: How good are hospitals at treating ‘hidden killer’? The latest figures showed there were 1,500 invasive cases in England in 2018-19 – 8% higher than the average for the previous five years. A team from Imperial College London analysed the DNA, or genetic code, of stored strep A samples from patients to see if a change in the …

Nicki Minaj Shocks Fans By Announcing Shes Retiring From Music

Nicki Minaj has seemingly abdicated her throne, announcing in a tweet that she plans to retire from music.  She ended the message with a shoutout to her famously loyal fanbase called the Barbz, adding, “Love you for LIFE.” Representatives for the rapper did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.  The two have been dating since 2018, and Petty has made frequent appearances on her social media accounts. The rapper even changed her name on Twitter to Mrs. Petty earlier this month. On her Queen Radio show in June, Minaj revealed that she and Petty had acquired a marriage license and intended to wed within “about 80 days.” “I have to work on my album and I have a …

Neanderthal Footprints Shed Light On What Their Social Groups Were Like

Until very recently only nine Neanderthal footprints had been found at four locations, and the origins of some are disputed. When a single Neanderthal footprint was found at Gibraltar earlier this year it was considered significant, so imagine the response to the identification of 257 prints laid down together from different members of a single tribe. Numerous footprints from humans, as well as a few from animals, have been found at Le Rozel, Normandy in France since the 1960s, but their age was unknown, leaving open the question as to whether they were from Neanderthals, or more recent modern humans. Since 2012 a large group of footprints has been uncovered, and earlier this year they were dated as being at …

He also said Huffman’s younger daughter, who is in high …

How Paul Walker Cracked Open The ’90s ‘Golden Boy’ Schtick

Lance Harbor, the golden-haired quarterback of the West Canaan High School football team, tips his blue and white Coyotes hat as . “I was lying in bed last night,” he starts, high-pitched screams erupting in the auditorium. A smile flashes across his face. Harbor licks his lips and jokes about his dream, in which his team crushes their upcoming competition. Fans cheer with excitement. He throws up the “love” sign, walks off stage and gets an approving pat from his coach.  While casting the 1999 teen flick “Varsity Blues,” director Brian Robbins looked long and hard for an up-and-coming actor who could encompass all aspects of Harbor, a star athlete who suffers a heartbreaking injury mid-season.  Soon enough, strolled into …

Denisovans Had Fingers Indistinguishable From Modern Humans, Further Complicating Our Family Tree

The missing part of one of the most important fossils ever found has been identified, challenging ideas on modern humans’ relationship to our nearest relatives. In 2008 a finger bone was found in Denisova Cave in Siberia, and DNA extracted from it shocked anthropologists by revealing a new human relative. Beforehand, however, the bone was cut in two and sent to different laboratories. Records of these actions were lost and researchers thought the two pieces might be from different individuals. Since the cave is known to have been inhabited not only by the Denisovans, to whom it gave its name, but also Neanderthals, and one Denisovan/Neanderthal hybrid there were questions over the other fragment’s origins. Now, however, the 50,000-year-old phalanx bone has been …

EU is losing patience with Britain, warns Dutch minister

Sigrid Kaag throws further doubt on Boris Johnsons claim he is seeking new deal with Brussels Boris Johnsons claims to be conducting a Brexit renegotiation have come under fresh doubt as the UKs closest EU ally expressed alarm at the breathtaking developments in Westminster and the governments failure to table alternatives to the Irish backstop. The Dutch minister for trade, Sigrid Kaag, described the scenes being played out in London as unbelievable and warned of the EUs waning patience given the impact on European businesses of the continued uncertainty. Johnson committed in early August in discussions with EU leaders to swiftly tabling an alternative solution to the Irish backstop, which would temporarily keep Northern Ireland in the single market and …
