Juul bought ads on CartoonNetwork.com, NickJr.com, other kid sites, suit says

Popular e-cigarette maker Juul intentionally and egregiously tailored its marketing to appeal to underage youth, according to a lawsuit filed by Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey on February 12. The lawsuit lands as public health officials across the nation are still grappling with an explosion in e-cigarette use by youth, which the Food and Drug Administration has referred to as an “epidemic.” Between 2011 and 2019, recent use of e-cigarettes by middle schoolers increased from 0.6 percent to 10.5 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For high schoolers, use increased from 1.5 percent to 27.5 percent in that timeframe. That means that by 2019, more than 1 in every 4 high school students said they had used e-cigarettes within the last 30-days from the time of the survey. Overall, 5.4 million middle and high school students reported use of e-cigarettes in 2019, a leap up from 3.6 million in 2018, according to the CDC. While there were several e-cigarette makers with questionable appeal to youth, Juul has drawn the fiercest criticism—and several other state lawsuits. Juul is by far the leading brand of e-cigarettes in the US and clearly has...

Men and women are different in several respects, but the moment you get on to the

Men and women are different in several respects, but the moment you get on to the subject of shoes, a chasm opens between the two sexes; it’s only for women that shoes become an all-consuming obsession. Shoes can cost a fortune; yet while money itself does not bring happiness, a pair of new shoes bring on a kind of exaltation. Unlike clothes, shoes have a distinct advantage. Whether you’re fat or thin, short or tall, beautiful or ugly, you can buy all the shoes your heart desires. They are capable of making you feel sexy, elegant or sporty at a single stroke. For a long time, the obsession with luxury shoes has been the prerogative of a select tribe of actresses, socialites, It-girls and millionairesses whose members could be identified by the accessories with which they adorned themselves. Their distinguishing tattoos were the label – Hermes, Gucci, Caovilla, Ferragamo, Blahnik, Laboutin – which they procured by putting their names down on the special waiting lists of international boutiques. Our intimate relationship with shoes begins shortly after we learn to walk. As soon as we want to feel “grown-up,” we slip on a pair of our mother’...

Innovative concepts, from store design to technology, are influencing the next wave of physical retail experiences. Learn what it takes to design a successful experiential store at the upcoming SPECS 2020 conference, March 15-17, at the Gaylord Texan in Dallas.

Kylie Jenner Shows Off PDA With Travis Scott After Revealing She Wants Another Baby

On Saturday, Kylie Jenner took to her Instagram story to share multiple snaps of a girls trip she’s taking with her friends. The group arrived at their destination in a private plane with Jenner’s skincare logo plastered on the side. However, it seems that Travis Scott was also on the trip. In one snap, Kylie is seen sporting a pink tie-dye sweatshirt and matching sweatpants with pink sneakers as she holds her daughter, Stormi Webster, who’s also wearing a matching pink ensemble with some white shoes. Kylie holds Stormi as she poses with Travis in front of the airplane. The two embrace and kiss in the photo, as Travis wraps his arms around his beau for a tender moment. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has her long, dark hair pulled back as pieces fall around her famous face in the photo. Little Stormi looks away from her parents’ PDA session as a blue sky can be seen in the background of the photo. In another snap on her Instagram story, Jenner revealed that she was listening to Scott’s latest collaboration with Ed Sheeran during her trip. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Kylie Jenner has been hinting that she wants to have another baby with Travis Scott in the n...

The day has finally come and you’re tired of having to walk over and manually tweak your old LCD thermostat to change the temperature or, even worse, stand there for an hour or so setting up a weekly schedule. A good smart thermostat lets you do all that from the comfort of your phone or, better yet, with your voice. So which thermostat is the smartest? Which reigns supreme? The Glas Smart Thermostat might look like a Star Trek set prop, but it’s not quite as bright as others on this list. Its transparent touchscreen practically disappears when the display is inactive, blending with your walls. Glas does the things you’d expect, like keeping schedules and working with an app for programming. Plus, some you wouldn’t—like monitoring your air quality, something other competitors lack. It also has Microsoft Cortana built in, so you can speak to it for changing settings. So comp...

Copenhagen is not unlike its Swedish sister, Malmö, just across the bridge. But somehow the city’s tenuous land ties to the remote sea-washed reaches of northern Germany make it just that much more of an island refuge—official “Big Germany” happens far to the south and “Big Scandinavia” happens on the other side of the bridge, across the water. Copenhagen is its own small, intense thing, very much not Germany, but not quite Scando-land, either. Splendid old-school luxe in the middle of Copenhagen, the Hotel d’Angleterre has been serving the capital since 1755. With 92 rooms, 55 of which are suites, the Angleterre also has the Michelin-starred Marchal and a Champagne bar, Balthazar. There’s also a lovely spa and the only indoor pool in inner Copenhagen. With its moorish palace-of-the-sheik design, the Nimb seems to have been airlifted from t...
