The U.S. government is escalating its verbal sparring with the Iranian regime:
The latest: At least 21 are dead after the government crackdown on the protests, with an estimated 450 in custody in Tehran, the N.Y. Times reports, citing an Iranian semiofficial news agency.
What's next: The Trump administration has called on the Iranian government to lift restrictions on social media apps including Instagram and Telegram, AP reports. Social media users in the country have reported channel shutdowns and app slowdowns.
"The basketball rivalry between Duke University and the University of North Carolina battle is legendary, but a federal lawsuit says the two elite institutions have agreed not to compete in another prestigious area: the market for highly skilled medical workers," the AP's Emery Dalesio reports.
Why it matters: "The anti-trust complaint by a former Duke radiologist accuses the schools just 10 miles apart of secretly conspiring to avoid poaching each other's professors. If her lawyers succeed in persuading a judge to make it a class action, thousands of faculty, physicians, nurses and other professionals could be affected."
