I’m not the biggest believer in New Year’s resolutions because I feel self-improvement should be a year-long affair. If you’ve been resisting making necessary changes, it’s hard to believe you’ll follow through just because you’re inspired by a clean slate, chronologically speaking. Looking at history, though, it seems to be human nature to view the New Year as an opportunity to move past old limitations and into better habits. Some 4,000 years ago, the Babylonians renewed their loyalty to the k...

Government regulators will ban menthol cigarettes and chip away at flavored e-cigs — but not in the way some thought

Federal regulators on Thursday proposed a ban on menthol cigarettes and a move to place flavored e-cigarettes like the Juul behind a stronger regulatory fence.

Menthol and mint e-cigarettes aren't affected by the government's proposal. Earlier this week, the Silicon Valley e-cig startup Juul announced it would temporarily stop selling its flavored e-cig...
