Trump: It looks like Iran hit Saudis, no military option yet
WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump declared Monday it "looks" like Iran was behind the explosive attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities. But he stressed that military retaliation was not yet on the table in response to the strike against a key U.S. Mideast ally.     Oil prices soared worldwide amid the damage in Saudi Arabia and fresh Middle East war concerns. But Trump put the brakes on any talk of quick military action --- earlier he had said the U.S. was "locked and loaded" --- and he said the oil impact would not be significant on the U.S., which is a net energy exporter.   The Saudi government called the attack an "unprecedented act of aggression a...Keep on reading: Trump: It looks like Iran hit Saudis, no military option yet

NEW YORK CITY --- Vape shops in New York are scrambling to respond to Gov. Andrew Cuomo's plan to prohibit the sale of flavored vaping products --- a ban poised to take effect Tuesday.

US stocks close lower as spike in crude oil rattles market
Airlines, cruise lines and other companies in fuel-dependent industries dragged U.S. stocks lower Monday after an attack on Saudi Arabia's biggest oil processing facility sent crude prices soaring.   The U.S. and international benchmarks for crude each vaulted more than 14% --- that's comparable to the 14.5% spike in oil on Aug. 6, 1990, following Iraq's invasion of Kuwait.   The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.5% to break a streak of eight consecutive gains. The S&P 500, while down modestly, had its biggest decline in two weeks.

Oil prices jump as attack on Saudi plant jolts supply
Global energy prices spiked Monday by 15% after a weekend attack on key oil facilities in Saudi Arabia caused the worst disruption to world supplies on record.     It was an increase on par with the 1991 Gulf War and analysts said heightened tensions in the Middle East could keep prices elevated for the foreseeable future. The wider economic fallout will depend on just how long the Saudi supply disruption lasts. The attack on the country's largest oil processing plant disrupted more than half of its daily exports, halting 5% of world crude oil output. It followed a string of other attacks in the Persian Gulf, which threatened global oil supplies and stirred t...Keep on reading: Oil prices jump as attack on Saudi plant jolts supply

US Women Say 1st Sexual Experience Forced
Metoo Movement : The first sexual experience for 1 in 16 U.S. women was forced or coerced intercourse in their early teens, encounters that for some may have had lasting health repercussions, a study suggests. The experiences amount to rape, the authors say, although they relied on a national survey that didn't use the word in asking women about forced sex. Almost 7 percent of women surveyed said their first sexual intercourse experience was involuntary; it happened at age 15 on average and the man was often several years older. Almost half of those women who said intercourse was involuntary said they were held down and slightly more than half of them said they were verbally pre...Keep on reading: US Women Say 1st Sexual Experience Forced
