Mexico and Canada May Be Spared US Tariffs

White House trade adviser Navarro said yesterday that Canada and Mexico will initially be exempt from steep new import duties on steel and aluminum — but that permanent exemptions will depend on what concessions they make in NAFTA renegotiations. China’s foreign minister, meanwhile, cautioned that trade war is a “mistaken prescription.” President Donald Trump is expected to sign the tariff plan today, despite opposition from 107 House Republicans who sent a letter asking him to reconsider. The tariffs will go into effect within 30 days.

Florida Legislature Passes Bill Restricting Guns, Arming Teachers

Over the objections of some state Democrats and the NRA, Florida lawmakers passed a bill that puts millions of dollars toward arming teachers, but also imposes a three-day waiting period and a minimum age of 21 to buy certain weapons. The bill, backed by the families of Marjory Stoneman Douglas victims, does not ban assault rifles. It’s unclear whether Gov. Rick Scott, who has opposed arming educators, will sign it. Meanwhile, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos visited the Parkland school, but students say she refused to meet with them.

UK Police: Russian Ex-Spy Poisoned With Nerve Agent

In an incident that’s heightening tensions between the U.K. and the Kremlin, British officials now say a nerve agent was used on a former Russian double agent and his daughter last weekend in southwestern England. The case is being treated as an attempted murder. Sergei Skripal, 66, and 33-year-old Yulia remain in critical condition, while a policeman who responded to the incident is also seriously ill. The Kremlin, the suspected culprit behind the 2006 poisoning of a Putin critic living in London, has denied being involved.

Eleven Countries to Sign Trans-Pacific Trade Deal

The TPP is dead — long live the CPTPP. That’s the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, an agreement among 11 countries led by Japan and Canada that’ll be signed today in Santiago. President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the TPP shortly after his inauguration, but said he could be lured back in with more favorable terms. The CPTPP will be one of the world’s three largest trade agreements, covering 500 million people, and is meant to offer a “signal of openness,” according to Chile’s foreign minister.

Balkan Energy Spat Hits Europe's Power Grid, Slowing Clocks

The clock isn’t ticking. That what some Europeans discovered during the last month, when the Continent’s electric timepieces slowed by nearly six minutes. On Wednesday, ENTSOE, an association of European electricity suppliers, said a feud between Serbia and Kosovo over energy pricing had reduced power for a 25-nation grid, causing all non-quartz electric clocks, which calibrate themselves by their energy supply, to slow down. ENTSOE urged a prompt end to the conflict and suggested that in the meantime Europeans should manually adjust their clocks.

FDA Approves Over-the-Counter Genetic Cancer Test

This week the FDA approved 23andMe’s $199 home test for mutations linked to breast cancer. The first consumer product of its kind, it targets three specific gene mutations that are most common in people of Ashkenazi Jewish descent: Women with one of them have a 45 to 85 percent chance of developing breast cancer by the age of 70. 23andMe, which hopes to offer tests for other variants soon, warned that its test does not actually diagnose cancer, and the FDA noted that most cancer isn’t caused by hereditary mutations.

This Country Is the World's Crossroads for Art

If you frame it, they will come. The United Arab Emirates is increasingly bringing hard-to-obtain art to a global audience, transporting elusive pieces from places like Iran, North Korea, Yemen and Syria, where art lovers may not be able to travel themselves. UAE’s relative prosperity and stability, along with its more than 50 major galleries, have made it an important crossroads in the art trade. Now its capital, Abu Dhabi, is upping the ante with the construction of the first Guggenheim Museum outside the Americas and Europe.

Parkland QB Who Sheltered With Recruiters Joins Their School

During last month’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, senior quarterback Tyler Goodman was barricaded in his coach’s office for three hours with representatives from Nichols College. He listened, along with his coach and the recruiters, to gunshots and occasional news from a radio. “We kind of formed a bond,” said Goodman, who decided shortly afterwards to attend the Division 3 school in Dudley, Massachusetts. Goodman hopes to wear number 17 to honor his 17 classmates, teachers and coaches who died in the massacre.
