Here’s what I’m reading up on this morning:
- The St. Louis Post Dispatch publishes a new analysis of Michael Brown’s killing, based on his autopsy, suggesting he was reaching for Darren Wilson’s gun when he was shot–as protests continue.
- North Korea releases Jeffrey Fowle, an Ohio man it held for six months after Fowle left a Bible at a nightclub.
- Two sisters and their friend, all from Denver are intercepted by the FBI in Germany on suspicion that they were preparing to join IS.
- Travelers from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea are being made to go through one of five airports designed to conduct enhanced screenings for Ebola.
- Meanwhile, Ashoka Mukpa recovers from Ebola and is coming home.
- McDonald’s promises a new marketing gimmick after it posts a fourth straight quarter decline.
- The Federal Trade Commission appoints privacy advocate Ashkan Soltani as its chief technologist.
- If the weather feels like cooperating wherever it is you live in nearly all of North America, you’ll be able to watch Thursday’s partial solar eclipse. (I suggest the strainer method if you haven’t done that one before!)
