Just In From NPR:

For the third time in recent days, a prominent group of former national security officials has signed a letter criticizing President Trump's decision to revoke the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan.

In a related development, Trump said in a tweet Monday that he wasn't concerned about Brennan's remarks over the weekend that he might take legal action in response to the president's move.

Trump said last Wednesday he was taking away Brennan's security clearance, citing Brennan's highly critical remarks of the president on social media and television.

An Obama-era regulation aimed at improving accountability at for-profit colleges is heading to the chopping block.

Here & Now’s Peter O’Dowd speaks with Jon Marcus (@JonMarcusBoston), higher education editor at The Hechinger Report, about the implications of the change.

President Trump continues to decry Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. He likened Mueller to McCarthyism and criticized The New York Times for a story on how the White House counsel was interviewed by Mueller’s team. Meanwhile, former CIA chief John Brennan discussed possibly suing the Trump administration for revoking his security clearance.

Barbershops tend to be vital hubs of conversation and information in the communities they serve. That’s true all over the country, but one barbershop in Cleveland is also becoming a hub for health.

Beer, Drinking Water And Fish: Tiny Plastic Is Everywhere

Plastic trash is littering the land and fouling rivers and oceans. But what we can see is only a small fraction of what's out there. Since modern plastic was first mass-produced, 8 billion tons have been manufactured. And when it's thrown away, it doesn't just disappear. Much of it crumbles into small pieces. Scientists call the tiny pieces "microplastics" and define them as objects smaller than 5 millimeters — about the size of one of the letters on a computer keyboard. Researchers started...
