Legal sales of recreational marijuana in Arizona started Friday under licenses approved by the state Health Services Department. The health department announced it had issued 73 licenses in nine of the state's 15 counties under provisions of the marijuana legalization measure passed by voters in November. Most went to existing medical marijuana dispensaries that can start selling recreational pot right away.
A stunning long-range goal by Vitinha proved the difference as Wolverhampton Wanderers endured an uncomfortable night to edge out sixth-tier Chorley 1-0 in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday. Vitinha, on loan from Porto, unleashed a swerving shot from 30 metres past Chorley's Matthew Unwin in the 12th minute -- the only shot a disappointing Wolves managed on target. Apart from that moment of quality it was hard to believe that Wolves, 14th in the Premier League, began the game 111 places higher up the English soccer pyramid than their hosts.
Two senior British parliamentarians called on Friday for an investigation into a British-registered company possibly linked to last year's devastating explosion in Beirut, after Reuters found that the firm had not disclosed its beneficial owners. The company, Savaro Ltd, is registered at a London address, and like all British firms is required to list who owns it with Britain's companies register, known as Companies House. In an e-mail to Reuters this week, the woman listed as Savaro's owner and sole director at Companies House, Marina Psyllou, told Reuters that she was acting as an agent on behalf of another beneficial owner, whose identity she could not disclose.

The Boston Globe launched an initiative on Friday that will allow the subjects of past coverage to request updates or anonymity in an effort to address the paper’s past reporting on crime and its impact on communities of color. “It was never our intent to have a short and relatively inconsequential Globe story affect the futures of the ordinary people who might be the subjects,” Brian McGrory, the editor of The Boston Globe, told the paper. “Our sense, given the criminal justice system, is that this has had a disproportionate impact on people of color. The idea behind the program is to start addressing it.” Those interested in requesting updates to past coverage can fill out this form, which will allow the individual to include relevant court documents, such as evidence of charges being dismissed. Though all requests will be considered, but “those from people who have been found guilty of the most serious and heinous crimes are unlikely to be acted on,” the Globe said in an accompanying FAQ page. Public figures and people in “positions of public trust” will also be held to a “higher standard of scrutiny,” the Globe said.

The program comes as numerous other newsrooms across the country are confronting their approaches to crime coverage. Last year, the Houston Chronicle, Tampa Bay Times, Orlando Sentinel and 26 other local papers owned by Gannett said they would stop publishing mugshot galleries, given that they tend to lack context and disproportionately feature Black and brown people, furthering negative stereotypes about people of color. Cleveland.com also created a similar initiative in 2019 that allows people who have committed nonviolent crimes and have successfully petitioned a court to expunge their records to also request that the news outlet remove their names from stories about them.
