Vaping Is Suspected In Severe Lung Illnesses

U.S. health authorities from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are investigating the cases of 153 people, mostly teenagers and young adults, who developed several lung illnesses after using electronic cigarettes (Warning: source paywalled; alternative source). The Wall Street Journal reports: The cases have occurred in 16 states over the past two months, with many of the injured rushing to emergency rooms with difficulty breathing and other symptoms. No deaths have been reported, but some patients were so ill they spent days in intensive-care units on mechanical ventilators, the health authorities said. What exactly is causing the acute illnesses is unknown, though health experts suspect vaping plays a role. Vaping refers to the use of an electronic cigarette to inhale. Many of the injured have told doctors or health authorities they were vaping products containing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, a key ingredient in marijuana, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is working with state health departments to identify the cause. At least some of the products were purchased from unlicensed sellers. "Investigators have not identified any specific product or compound that is linked to all cases," the CDC said in a statement. The Food and Drug Administration said it is testing e-cigarette products that the patients used. The health effects of vaping any product, even a well-known brand name, are under research and not yet fully known, tobacco researchers said. Read more of this story at Slashdot.

Food delivery service DoorDash has been under fire over revelations that customers` tips were going to DoorDash itself , not to the delivery partners actually bringing users their burritos and kung pao chicken — effectively subsiding Dashers` pay instead of adding to it, as tippers intended. Now they`ve revealed a new tip structure, promising every tipped dollar will go straight into Dashers` pockets, on top of their guaranteed base rate and bonuses. The new model is currently being tested and will roll out to all Dashers over the next month. While the existing scheme wasn`t a secret, in July a New York Times reporter spent 27 hours as a Dasher and explained the structure in plain detail: Read more...
