    More than 13,000 men have sued Johnson & Johnson because they were not warned that taking Risperdal could cause gynecomastia, an enlargement of the breasts. In the case of Nicholas Murray, the jury awarded $8 billion. That's $4 billion per breast. Of course Johnson & Johnson will seek to overturn the verdict.

    In 2014, California became the first state to ban single-use plastic bags in supermarkets. We can still get plastic bags for our groceries, though. The bags are larger and thicker – and the stores charge as much as 25¢ each for them. California then declared war on plastic straws, plastic forks and plastic food containers. The battle rages on:

    Investors alarmed by trade wars and a global economic slowdown are pulling money from equity funds – $60 billion in the last three months – and putting it into bonds and money-market funds, which have less financial risk.

    Traders are pulling more money out of stock funds than at any point in the last 10 years

    Uber, founded in March 2009 in San Francisco, reported a 2019 second-quarter loss of $5.2 billion. Yikes! Following today's announcement of a third round of layoffs, shares rose $1.01, a gain of 3.35%.

    In February 1960, Bil Keane began drawing The Family Circle, so titled because each daily comic was a single circular panel. In August, after the publisher of Family Circle threatened to sue Keene for trademark infringement, the comic was renamed The Family Circus. After Keane died in 2011, his son Jeff took over the strip. The magazine, meanwhile, will cease publication with its issue of December 2019.

    Family Circle, a pillar of women's magazines, will shut down after 87 years
