BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
Five White House staffers have been fired because of their past use of drugs, including marijuana. The White House has said there could be multiple factors for dismissals, including hard drug use. The marijuana policy has become less stringent under the Biden administration, allowing for up to 15 past uses in a year among White House staffers.
Marijuana has become a delicate issue for President Biden’s administration as fifteen states and Washington D.C. allow for recreational uses of the drug. The administration has tried not to automatically penalize potential staffers for legal behavior in their communities by developing a more flexible policy. Security and suitability reviews have been an issue for past administrations.

THE TECH SECTOR
Twitter is seeking public input on whether world leaders should be subject to the same rules as other users and wants feedback on what kind of enforcement they think would be appropriate when a world leader violates engagement rules.
Republican lawmakers have criticized Twitter in recent months for its content moderation policies. In congressional hearings Senators Roger Wicker, Ted Cruz, and Lindsey Graham alleged that Twitter’s content moderation practices unfairly silence conservative voices on the platform.
“Your platform allows foreign dictators to post propaganda typically without restriction, yet you routinely restrict the president of the United States,” Wicker told Dorsey during the hearing in October.

Australia has had a rough time over the last few years dealing with everything from insane wildfires to the current mouse plague.

Locals say they started noticing the swarms up north in October and the wave of rodents has been spreading south ever since, growing to biblical proportions.
