The FDA proposed new rules on e-cigarettes, extending its reach to a fast-growing industry which has so far had no oversight. Among the new regulations comes a ban on the sale of e-cigs to minors, but not on internet advertising. So what's next for the industry that's already lobbying hard to soften the most restrictive/ costly regulations. The FCC aill also be proposing new rules on Internet traffic that would allow broadband providers to charge companies a premium for access to their fastest lanes. Where are we in the process of addressing this problem and how will the money likely shift as a result of the proposals? Plus, as Northwestern University football players wait to vote for or against a union tomorrow, the pending vote and other factors are already forcing the NCAA and big-time football colleges to rethink the way they treat scholarship athletes whose performance brings them billions in revenue.
