Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will introduce legislation to raise the federal minimum age to buy tobacco to 21 from 18, he announced Thursday.

McConnell will introduce the legislation, called the McConnell bill, in May, he said. The bill will cover all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes. McConnell’s backing marks the strongest support yet in Congress for what’s been dubbed “T21.”

“For some time, I’ve been hearing from the parents who are seeing an unprecedented spike in vaping among their teenage children,” McConnell said in a statement. “In addition, we all know people who started smoking at a young age and who struggled to quit as adults. Unfortunately it’s reaching epidemic levels around the country.”

What experts say will need to happen to save Notre Dame

Officials began inspecting the damage of Notre Dame Tuesday. They declared the cathedral structurally sound while identifying “some vulnerabilities,” according to French Deputy Interior Minister Laurent Nunez. Specifically, the vault and gable of the north transept were of concern. Inspectors are also worried about structural damage that may be hidden.

Kirk Martini, who works for Archute, with a doctorate from the University of California at Berkeley in structural engineering, said the transept is probably the greatest vulnerability. To ensure the structure is stable, additional shoring may be necessary after the full extent of the damage is assessed.

The Penguins rallied back Thursday night by deflecting pucks past Braden Holtby – PensBurgh

It took a couple deflected shots to get pucks past the Capitals netminder

Last night, through two periods and change, Capitals netminder Braden Holtby looked dialed in, like he was going to be tough to beat. The Penguins kept at it, giving him their best looks but he was all over everything sent his way.

Into the third period, you could just feel that it was going to take a bounce or something tricky to get one behind him and the floodgates might open.

The Penguins rallied from down 2-0 to up 3-2 in 4 minutes and 46 seconds, with two of the three goals coming on deflected pucks from in front of the net.

On the first goal, Justin Schultz exercised great patience to wait out a diving Alexander Ovechkin before putting a shot on net that Patric Hornqvist would redirect around the defense and past Holtby.

Minutes later, Sidney Crosby would send a puck towards the Capitals net, where Jake Guentzel would get a stick on and just find enough room past Holtby to give the Penguins the lead, which they would hold onto for the 3-2 win.

Second time’s the charm: Mega Millions $533M jackpot winner announced

A New Jersey man’s plans for his winnings include helping his family, others and restoring a classic sports car.

Richard Wahl had $22 in his pocket to buy gas, a Diet Coke and a few Mega Millions lottery tickets. Days later, he won one of the largest lottery jackpots in history.

Wahl, of Vernon, New Jersey, won the $533 million Mega Millions jackpot on March 30 after playing the lottery two times. He has decided to take the cash option of $324.6 million over the annuity.

Wahl, 47, purchased his first ticket last month just after chatting with a co-worker about retirement. He didn’t win.

A week later, he stopped at a Lukoil gas station in Riverdale, New Jersey, went inside the store and bought more tickets.

When the winning numbers were announced on Good Friday, he initially thought he had won $1 million.

200M eggs recalled over salmonella fears

You may want to check your eggs as more than 200 million are being recalled because of potential salmonella contamination.

The eggs that are part of the recall can be identified by the plant number, P-1065, with the Julian date range of 011 through 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package.

The FDA urges consumers to stop using the recalled eggs right away and return them to the store you bought them from for a full refund.

According to the FDA, the recalled eggs may be contaminated with salmonellabraenderup, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
