US colleges are bracing for the loss of foreign students this fall after US Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued new guidelines that require international students in online-only courses to transfer schools or leave the country altogether. And the UN’s cultural agency UNESCO has warned that its name and logo are being illegally emblazoned on false documents to facilitate a scam selling supposedly valuable statues in Mali and Cameroon. Also, UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced Wednesday a plan called "Eat Out to Help Out." During the month of August, people who dine-in at restaurants in the UK will receive 50% off their meal, excluding alcohol, with about a $13 limit per person.
