San Francisco will become the first US city to ban the sale of e-cigarettes, after the city’s board of supervisors voted in favor of an ordinance on Tuesday. The ordinance says "no person shall sell or distribute an electronic cigarette to a person in San Francisco" unless that product has undergone premarket review by the US Food and Drug Administration. To date, none have. This includes sales in brick-and-mortar stores, as well as online sales shipped to a San Francisco address. The measure does not ban the use of e-cigarettes among people 21 and older. Photo: Eva Hambach/Getty Images

Follow ➡️ @cnnclimate ➡️Paris officials are installing mist showers throughout the city, extending hours at public swimming pools and opening cool rooms in designated public buildings as Europe prepares for an exceptional heat wave. Temperatures exceeding 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius) are forecast in a number of major cities across the continent, with meteorologists warning that higher humidity could make it feel even hotter. Heat waves are becoming more frequent and more severe because of the climate crisis, scientists say. The frequency of such events is expected to double by 2050, French weather service Météo-France said. (📸: Chesnot/Getty Images)

A large brush fire has been burning across the Florida Everglades since Sunday, and has so far charred more than 30,000 acres in Broward County. Officials with the Florida Forest Service say that the Sawgrass Fire is only about 30% contained, and that no structures are currently threatened. The fire was started by a lighting strike, according to CNN affiliate WPLG.

Aaron Philip, the first black, transgender and disabled model to sign for a leading agency, has achieved another trailblazing feat: her first major magazine cover. She is on the cover of Paper magazine for the first of its seven covers this week honoring Pride. "Now we're entering this time, and this climate, where all types of bodies want to be pushed forward and celebrated — not only celebrated, but be seen as desirable and marketable," Philip said. She was born with cerebral palsy and made history when she joined the renowned Elite Model Management in September 2018.

The Treasury Department's inspector general said Monday it will review the Trump administration's decision to delay the release of the redesigned $20 bill with the image of abolitionist Harriet Tubman. The review follows a request by Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer who asked the IG to examine whether the Trump administration allowed political considerations to impact the process of the redesign. Late last month, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Tubman, a former slave and abolitionist, would not become the face of the $20 bill until after President Donald Trump leaves office. The Tubman bill was previously expected to be released in 2020 as a part of an initiative by the Obama administration. (Photo Illustration: Getty Images/CNN)

A single, small slug has been blamed for a massive power failure that brought part of Japan's high-speed rail network to a standstill last month. An estimated 12,000 passengers were delayed during peak commuter hours on the morning of May 30, after power was cut on lines in the country's southern Kyushu region. During a later inspection of the network’s electrical equipment, engineers discovered a dead slug, measuring just 2 to 3 centimeters (0.7 to 1.1 inches) long. According to a company spokesman, the slug had burned to death after touching an electrical cable, leading to the mass power failure. (📸: Achille Salerni/Getty Images)

This massive crater in a field near Ahlbach, Germany, was "almost certainly" caused by a World War II bomb, officials said. Residents were likely asleep when they were jolted by a sudden blast at 4 a.m. on Sunday, which left behind a hole that measured 33 feet wide and 13 feet deep, police say. After a day studying the crater, officials said it was likely a 550-pound dud. "We can be glad that the farmer was not in the field," a city spokesman said. Undiscovered bombs can often explode without outside forces acting on them, experts say, as their detonators decompose over time. Old bombs are not uncommon finds in Germany and elsewhere, with hundreds found each year. (📸: Boris Roessler/Getty Images)

Tens of thousands of Czechs filled Prague's Letna Plain park on Sunday, taking part in what its organizers described as "the biggest protest since the fall of Communism." They were demanding the resignation of Czech Republic Prime Minister Andrej Babis, a controversial politician accused of fraud and collaborating with the Communist-era secret police, and his justice secretary Marie Benesova. The billionaire tycoon has been dubbed the "Czech Trump" by some because of his vast business empire and populist leanings. Organizers estimated that 250,000 people took over the plain overlooking Prague's historical center, the site of the mass protests that ultimately led to the fall of the country's Communist regime three decades ago.

Follow ➡️@cnnclimate ➡️ A new study involving satellite images found that Himalayan glaciers are melting at an alarming rate, losing almost half a meter of ice each year since the start of this century—double the amount of melting that occurred between 1975 and 2000—according to researchers. The glaciers, which supply around 800 million people with water, are losing about 8 billion tons of water per year, researchers say. (📸:Education Images/Getty Images)

In the US, one in five girls say they have missed class or had to go home due to a lack of menstrual products at school, according to a recent survey. Beginning in the fall, public schools in Boston are trying to fix that with a pilot program to bring free menstrual supplies to grades 6 through 12. "Offering free, easily accessible menstrual supplies means that more students will have access to the supplies they need, and are able to stay in class and focus on their education,” a school official said.
