  1. Boy Scouts’ Transition, Calexit, Britons vs. Trump and Starbucks’ New Promise

    Know This: The Boy Scouts of America will allow trans children who identify as boys into boys-only programs. California campaigners have gotten the go-ahead to collect signatures for a 2018 “Calexit” vote on seceding from the U.S., which would require a constitutional amendment. A petition in the U.K. to cancel Donald Trump’s state visit over his immigration ban has garnered more than a million signatures. And Festival in the Desert, Mali’s famed music event, has been canceled over fears of a terrorist attack.

    Remember This Number: 10,000. That’s how many refugees Starbucks says it will hire around the world as a response to Trump’s immigration ban, with a focus on individuals in the U.S. who have aided the American military abroad.
