Concept:
TRUMP FIRST ANNOUNCED THE ADMINISTRATION WOULD BAN FLAVORED E-CIGARETTES PRODUCTS IN SEPTEMBER AMID CONCERN ABOUT RISING RATES OF YOUTH USE AND REPORTED LUNG ILLNESSES BELIEVED TO BE RELATED TO VAPING.

IN MARCH, WOMEN RAILED AGAINST A REQUIREMENT TO WEAR MAKEUP, WHILE THIS SUMMER, AN ONLINE PETITION WENT VIRAL DEMANDING A BAN ON MANDATORY DRESS CODES FOR WOMEN.
FOR ITS PART, TRUMP『S CAMPAIGN IS PLAYING IT STRAIGHT. CAMPAIGN HEAD BRAD PARSCALE PAINTED THE MOVE AS 「DUMB」 AND CLAIMED TWITTER WOULD LOSE MONEY. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS POSITIONING THE BAN AS A PLOY BY TWITTER TO SILENCE CONSERVATIVE VIEWS — DESPITE THE FACT THAT THE EVIDENCE CLEARLY SUPPORTS THE OPPOSITE.

A HANDFUL OF STATES AND MUNICIPALITIES HAVE ALREADY VOTED ON OR ENACTED AT LEAST TEMPORARY BANS ON FLAVORED E-CIGARETTES: SAN FRANCISCO, MASSACHUSETTS, MICHIGAN, MONTANA, NEW YORK, RHODE ISLAND AND WASHINGTON.

ON TUESDAY, THE FDA AND CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION PUBLISHED FINDINGS HIGHLIGHTED IN SEPTEMBER WHEN TRUMP AND HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES SECRETARY ALEX AZAR ANNOUNCED THE PLANNED BAN. E-CIGARETTE USE AMONG HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS MORE THAN DOUBLED FROM 2017 TO 2019 TO 27.5%. ABOUT 5.3 MILLION MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS USED E-CIGARETTES THIS YEAR, UP FROM 3.6 MILLION IN 2018.
FRANCE HAS ALSO BEEN PUSHING FOR AN EU-WIDE BAN ON GLYPHOSATE, AMID RISING CONCERN AMONG CONSUMERS ABOUT ITS IMPACT ON HEALTH. IT HAS BEEN DESCRIBED BY THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION AS "PROBABLY CARCINOGENIC."

THE CHORUS OF DISCONTENT AGAINST THE GLASSES BAN ECHOES A SIMILAR PHENOMENON IN SOUTH KOREA LAST YEAR, WHEN A FEMALE NEWS ANCHOR BROKE RANKS AND DECIDED TO WEAR GLASSES INSTEAD OF PUTTING ON CONTACT LENSES FOR HER EARLY MORNING SHOW. THE SIGHT OF A WOMAN WEARING GLASSES READING THE NEWS NOT ONLY SHOCKED VIEWERS, BUT ALSO PROMPTED A LOCAL AIRLINE TO REVIEW ITS OWN POLICIES AND ALLOW FEMALE CABIN CREW TO WEAR GLASSES.
"I WELCOME TODAY"S RULING BY THE HIGH COURT WHICH UPHOLDS THE UK"S COMMITMENT TO BAN THE IVORY TRADE," SAID THERESA VILLIERS, THE UK"S ENVIRONMENT SECRETARY, SAID IN A GOVERNMENT STATEMENT.

"OUR ESTIMATE IS THAT THIS WILL REDLINE 150 MILLION AMERICANS FROM ACCESS TO CREDIT," SAYS MARY JACKSON, THE CEO OF THE ONLINE LENDERS ALLIANCE. SHE SAYS PEOPLE NEED THESE LOANS. AND YES, SHE SAYS THE INTEREST RATES ARE HIGH — AVERAGING MORE THAN 100% A YEAR FOR THE LENDERS SHE REPRESENTS. BUT JACKSON SAYS THAT IS JUSTIFIED BY THE RISK THAT LENDERS TAKE MAKING THESE LOANS. SHE CITES A WORLD BANK POLICY PAPER THAT FOUND WHILE RATE CAPS CAN PREVENT PREDATORY LENDING, THEY CAN ALSO HAVE UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES.
ENCRYPTION AND THE UAE'S "REGULATORY FRAMEWORK" HAVE PREVIOUSLY BEEN CITED AS SOME OF THE REASONS BEHIND THE BAN. THE BLOCKS ALSO BENEFIT THE DOMESTIC TELECOMS SECTOR, WHICH IS MONOPOLIZED BY STATE-CONTROLLED FIRMS, AS RESIDENTS ARE FORCED TO PAY HIGH PRICES FOR PHONE CALLS INSTEAD OF MAKING THEM FOR FREE VIA AN INTERNET CONNECTION.

PARTICULARLY RISKY FRACKING IS NOW BANNED UNTIL AT LEAST 2021, AND "CONVENTIONAL" FRACKING WILL BE GOVERNED BY MUCH TIGHTER RULES. FOR ENVIRONMENTALISTS, THE LAWS DO NOT GO FAR ENOUGH: THEY WANT A COMPLETE BAN. (11.02.2017)

"EXTINCTION REBELLION IS DELIGHTED WITH THE COURT"S DECISION," TOBIAS GARNETT, A HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER IN EXTINCTION REBELLION"S LEGAL STRATEGY TEAM, SAID IN AN EXTINCTION REBELLION PRESS RELEASE. "IT VINDICATES OUR BELIEF THAT THE POLICE"S BLANKET BAN ON OUR PROTESTS WAS AN UNPRECEDENTED AND UNLAWFUL INFRINGEMENT ON THE RIGHT TO PROTEST. RATHER THAN WASTING ITS TIME AND MONEY SEEKING TO SILENCE AND CRIMINALISE THOSE WHO ARE DRAWING ITS ATTENTION TO THE CLIMATE AND ECOLOGICAL EMERGENCY, WE CALL ON THE GOVERNMENT TO ACT NOW ON THE BIGGEST THREAT TO OUR PLANET."
MOVING BEYOND TRUMP AND THE US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, TWITTER』S BAN ON POLITICAL ADS DISADVANTAGES CHALLENGERS AND POLITICAL NEWCOMERS. DIGITAL ADS ARE MUCH CHEAPER THAN TELEVISION ADS, DRAWING IN A WIDER SCOPE OF CANDIDATES, ESPECIALLY FOR DOWN-BALLOT RACES. THOUGH MUCH OF THE PUBLIC DEBATE ABOUT DIGITAL ADS FOCUSES ON HYPED-UP FEARS OF NEFARIOUS PERSUASION, MANY MORE DIGITAL ADS ARE USED AS AN ORGANIZATIONAL TOOL. CHALLENGER CAMPAIGNS USE LOW-COST DIGITAL ADS TO BUILD LISTS OF SUPPORTERS, SOLICIT DONATIONS AND MOBILIZE VOLUNTEERS. DIGITAL ADS ALSO ALLOW POLITICAL NEWCOMERS TO INTRODUCE THEMSELVES – A TACTIC THAT OFTEN ONLY BREAKS THROUGH WITH PAID PROMOTION.
