The Food and Drug Administration is threatening to pull new e-cigarette products from shelves if the companies don’t prove they’re selling the items legally.
The FDA sent letters on Friday to 21 e-cigarette manufacturers requesting information to investigate whether they illegally introduced more than 40 new devices and nicotine liquids to the market without receiving agency approval.
Business units of Big Tobacco companies British American Tobacco, Imperial Brands and Japan Tobacco are among the manufacturers that received letters. Juul, the clear market leader, did not receive a letter because regulators already obtained the information during a recent surprise inspection of the company’s San Francisco headquarters.

Professor Stephen Hawking, who died age 76 in March this year, spent his last years studying the so-called black hole “information paradox”.
A close friend and colleague of the late physicist said Professor Hawking spent a good part of the last 40 years trying to crack the black hole conundrum.
The physicist’s work was finally completed just days before his death, aided by his colleagues at Cambridge and Harvard Universities.
Malcolm Perry, a professor of theoretical physics at Cambridge, co-authored the paper titled Black Hole Entropy and Soft Hair.
Let’s get one thing out of the way: Jodie Whittaker is the first woman to take on the role of the Doctor in the British television staple Doctor Who, a pivot in the historically male casting that’s 55 years in the making. “The Doctor, particularly the way [new showrunner Chris Chibnall] has written, is so full of hope and has that amazing ability to continually learn even with this extraordinary hindsight,” she says. “And that’s a life lesson, to never feel like you know the answer. And I think as adults we can often prejudge a scenario… [we’re] sometimes closed off to the openness of what could happen, and I think that’s the opposite of the Doctor. That’s an extraordinary thing to play.”
Washington state’s Supreme Court has ruled that the death penalty is unconstitutional and converted to life in prison all pending death sentences in the state.
The court’s decision on Thursday was unanimous, with the justices determining that capital punishment is applied “in an arbitrary and racially biased manner.”
“The use of the death penalty is unequally applied — sometimes by where the crime took place, or the county of residence… or the race of the defendant,” the court said in its opinion. “The death penalty, as administered in our state, fails to serve any legitimate penological goal; thus, it violates article I, section 14 of our state constitution.”

Wisconsin is considered the first U.S. State to recognize Leif Erikson Day, in 1929. For a while, the choice of which explorer to applaud was a controversial political issue, but eventually boosters for both decided they could live in harmony. As the vice president of the Minnesota Leif Erikson Monument Association said in 1934, “There is ample room for honoring both of these men.” In fact, during Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s presidency, Columbus Day became a federal holiday in 1937, and he issued a statement in Sep. 1940 suggesting Americans read up on Leif Erikson on Oct. 9. By 1956, seven states, mostly in the Midwest, hosted some sort observance for the explorer.
