Moon to put on quite a show

The moon is providing a rare triple treat this week. On Wednesday, much of the world will get to see not only a blue moon and a supermoon, but also a total lunar eclipse, all rolled into one. There hasn’t been a triple lineup like this since 1982 and the next won’t occur until 2037. The eclipse will be visible best in the western half of the U.S. and Canada before the moon sets early Wednesday morning, and across the Pacific into Asia as the moon rises Wednesday night into Thursday. The U.S. East Coast will be out of luck; the moon will be setting just as the eclipse gets started.

7-year-old boy handcuffed

School district officials in Florida say they followed standard protocol last week when a 7-year-old boy was placed in handcuffs and removed from his school after he punched his teacher repeatedly in the back, kicked her and grabbed her hair. The incident began Thursday when a teacher at the Coral Way K-8 Center in Miami told the first-grader to stop playing with his food in the cafeteria. When the child refused to stop, he was taken from the cafeteria, according to an incident report from Miami-Dade County Public Schools Police Officer Munick Soriano.

WASHINGTON

Exercise trackers reviewed

The Pentagon is doing a broad review of how military forces use exercise trackers and other wearable electronic devices, in the wake of revelations that an interactive, online map can pinpoint troop locations, bases and other sensitive areas around the world. Army Col. Rob Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, said Monday that the review will determine if there should be additional training or restrictions on the use of the devices, such as Fitbits. The Global Heat Map, published by the GPS tracking company Strava, uses satellite information to map the locations of subscribers to Strava’s fitness service.

Health secretary sworn in

Alex Azar has been sworn in as President Donald Trump’s second health secretary. The former drug company executive and official in George W. Bush’s administration succeeds former Republican Georgia Congressman Tom Price, who resigned last fall following an outcry over his use of costly private charter aircraft for official travel. Azar’s nomination as secretary of Health and Human Services was approved by the Senate last week, largely along party lines.
