Antibacterial soaps will likely be banned in the U.S. beginning next year, but you'll still be able to use antibacterial hand sanitizers.
Cybersecurity hackers have a new way to make money off security flaws they uncover. At first glance, it looks creepy, but it may actually be a good thing.
In 2008, President Bush supported massive corporate bailouts known as TARP. The decision triggered a famously nasty rant by Rick Santelli from the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade, a rant that some would say inspired the Tea Party movement. After his election, President Obama continued the program. So where are we at with the Troubled Asset Relief Program? 97.5% of funds have been repaid to the government, banks saved, many large companies were saved, and the US auto industry is thriving. There's a more nuanced discussion to be had about when and how government intervention to save companies is warranted, if ever, but in terms of Bush and Obama's goals, the program appears to have been a resounding success.
Remember when California was frequently cited as a liberal economic basket-case? Well these days, not so much. State economies are a lot more complicated that simple liberal vs conservative dichotomies.
A hunter in the Everglades saved a young deer from a massive python and certain death.
Why is this not a major national scandal? Trump's nonprofit foundation made a political donation to a PAC supporting the reelection Florida attorney general Pam Bondi, who was at the time investigating Trump University for fraud. Nonprofit foundations are legally barred from making such contributions. Trump's foundation hid the donation by listing it in IRS filings as a legal donation to an entirely unrelated Kansas group with a similar name. The IRS fined the Trump foundation and, oh yeah, Bondi dropped the investigation of Trump U shortly after receiving the donation. And I'd still like to know what really went down in the Texas investigation of Trump University.

Film report: I didn't want to see Southside With You, but was outvoted one to one. The thought of some hagiographic homage to a sitting president was a real turn-off, but it turned out to be surprisingly watchable. We also saw Little Men last night. The critics love this film. It was okay, but I definitely didn't love it. Mia Madre is next on our film bucket list. We may see it later this week.
