FROM John Quelch
FDA Moves to Regulate E-Cigarettes E-cigarettes have been taking off over the past several years and the vaping industry has operated in a regulatory vacuum. That ends with today's announcement from the Food and Drug Agency of sweeping new rules . If the FDA gets its way, sometime next year minors won't be able to purchase e-cigs, cigars or pipe tobacco, and manufacturers will have to register with the agency and comply with requirements similar to those governing other tobacco products. John Quelch is Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School and Harvard School of Public Health.
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
