WSU quarterback had CTE
An autopsy revealed that Tyler Hilinski, the Washington State University quarterback who took his own life earlier this year, had signs of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, or CTE. The degenerative brain disease found in athletes, primarily football players, is the result of repetitive brain trauma. Here are his parents speaking about the results on the Today show. (ESPN) 
Travel ban upheld
President Trump's travel ban, which barred people from entering the U.S. from five mainly Muslim countries, was upheld this morning by the U.S. Supreme Court. Trump called it a "tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution" and a "profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country." (NPR)
