FTC bars Rite Aid from profiling customers

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has imposed a five-year ban on Rite Aid using facial recognition software because the pharmacy giant used it irresponsibly to profile customers as potential shoplifters or troublemakers. Store employees wrongly customers of thievery, sometimes calling police to confront them.

Children at risk of gunshot deaths

“Unintentional firearm injury deaths are preventable,” according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A new study tracked unintentional gunshot deaths among youths from 2003 to 2021, and found unlocked, loaded firearms are a risk to young people.


Hungarian researchers say ancient bones show evidence of tuberculosis infection tens of thousands of years earlier than previously recorded, according to a news release. The journal Tuberculosis dedicated an issue to the findings in Neanderthal specimens who lived more than 32,000 years ago.
