- Business Insider 22:52January 19, 2020Trump reportedly said 'I should never have done that f---ing vaping thing,' expressing regrets over his involvement in e-cigarette policyAssociated Press/Evan Vucci, REUTERS/David Mercado Axios reported that Trump expressed regret that he personally got involved in vaping policy, with two sources saying he remarked "I should never have done that f---ing vaping thing" on an impromptu phone call.
Trump was in an Oval Office campaign meeting discussing health care as a 2020 issue when he spontaneously called Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar.
The sources also said Trump didn't regret the policy, but thinks he should have left it up to the Food and Drug Administration instead of personally getting involved.
Previously, Trump told reporters his administration would "protect our children" by pulling certain sweet, fruity vape flavors that could entice minors into trying vaping.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. President Donald Trump's most prominent heath care policy thus far may be his administration's ban on flavored vapes. The move was intended to reduce teen vaping, but also spurned a vaping activism movement.
Now, Trump seems to regret getting himself personally involved in the vaping crackdown. On an impromptu Oval Office phone call with Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, Trump said "I should never have done that f---ing vaping thing," two sources told Axios.

- Business Insider 18:00January 19, 20207 things mentally strong people don't waste time doing, according to a psychotherapistDaxiao Productions/Shutterstock Amy Morin is a psychotherapist, mental strength coach, and international bestselling author.
She says mentally strong people all have one thing in common: They are essentialists.
They focus their energy on achieving their goals, instead of getting stuck wasting time on things that don't matter.
The more aware you are of your unhealthy habits, the better chance you have of overcoming them.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Some people seem to think that being strong means being able to do anything and everything. But the truth is that mentally strong people are essentialists. They don't feel the need to try to be all things to all people. Instead, they put their time and energy into the things that matter most.
They say no to things that might distract them from their goals, and they refuse to waste their valuable energy on things that don't really matter. Here are seven things mentally strong people don't waste time doing:1. Worrying about what others think
Diego Cervo/Getty Images
Worrying about other people's opinions and fearing their judgment will impact every aspect of your life, from what you wear to how you parent your kids. It can cause you to avoid taking risks and doing things where you might get criticized or rejected — like applying for a new job or speaking up to someone who hurt you.
Mentally strong people don't make it their job to make other people happy. They're confident in who they are, and they ensure that their priorities are in line with their values. They focus their efforts on reaching goals and doing their best, regardless of what other people think.
2. Overthinking things
Michael Regan/Getty Images
You won't catch a mentally strong person stuck in analysis paralysis. They refuse to overthink things. Instead, they evaluate their options and take action.
They know the risks they take and that the choices they make won't always be perfect. But they have confidence that they'll be okay no matter what happens.
3. Beating themselves up
Mentally strong people accept full responsibility for their actions. But they don't engage in toxic self-blame.
They refuse to beat themselves up for their mistakes, because they know that harsh self-criticism isn't effective. Instead, they know that self-compassion is the key to doing better, and so they choose to speak to forgive themselves when they mess up.

- Business Insider 13:59January 18, 2020The 11 best lessons season 2 of Netflix's 'Sex Education' teaches you about real-life sex and relationshipsSam Taylor/Netflix Warning: Major spoilers ahead for "Sex Education" season two.
Season two of Netflix's "Sex Education" dropped on January 17.
As the trailer teased, the season includes some new love interests, dramatic returns from familiar characters, and a chlamydia outbreak.
There are many sex and relationship lessons to take away from the show, even if you're not a teenager anymore.
Both Otis and his mother, sex therapist Jean, have wise insights for people of all ages.
Here are 11 of the best lessons you can take away from the dramatic second season, with some extra help from sex and relationship experts.
Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.
How STIs actually do (and don't ) spread
Sam Taylor / Netflix
The first episode starts with mass hysteria at Moordale Secondary School, with everyone thinking there has been an outbreak of chlamydia. One student called Simon is profiting off the madness by selling protective masks for a fiver.
"You cannot catch chlamydia from the air," Otis says indignantly, and correctly. "You have to have sexual contact with the carrier."
"Sex without a condom and unprotected oral sex are the main ways a chlamydia infection can be transmitted. But penetration doesn't have to occur to contract it," according to Healthline.
"Touching genitals together may transmit the bacteria. It can also be contracted during anal sex."
The episode also teaches us that there's nothing to be ashamed of if you do happen to end up with an STI, as long as you get it treated quickly, and tell anyone who you've had sexual contact with so they can get it sorted out as well.
Why your hormones go into hyperdrive when you become sexually active
Sex Education / Netflix
Season 2 also starts where season 1 left off — with Otis realizing he actually likes to masturbate. In fact, he's found he likes it maybe a little too much, and pretty much anything, from riding his bike to being punched in the face, ends up with an awkward erection.
When teenagers reach sexual maturity, there are so many hormones flying all over the place, it can feel completely bamboozling.
Otis, although a late bloomer, realizes this when he can't even resist the urge to touch himself in his mother's car (which ends pretty disastrously).
"Teen hormones affect teenagers' moods, emotions, and impulses as well as their body," Newport Academy explains. "The mood swings that teens experience are caused by fluctuations in estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone — the sex hormones.
"These same teen hormones will also affect the way they think about dating and sex. Teens become much more interested in sex, sometimes to the point of obsession, as teen hormones kick into gear."
It can be very disconcerting to feel like your body and mind are being controlled by things outside of your control, which can make many teens think they're weird or unnatural.
"In fact, almost everything that teens go through during adolescence is a normal part of their development," according to Newport Academy.
How to tell your partner what you like in bed
Sex Education / Netflix
Things start heating up for new couple Otis and Ola in episode 2. Worrying about how he's going to perform, Otis looks up "how to finger" on the internet. This leads him to a rather worrying technique called "The Clock."
After giving it a try, and thinking Ola was into it, Otis brags to Eric about his newfound title of sex god. But later on, Lily has revealed to him she was in fact in pain most of the time, and his rough jabbing method didn't do much for her at all.
By the end of the episode, Otis admits to Ola he has no idea what he's doing, he's "really bad at fingering," and they never have to do it again. She appreciates his honesty and tells him: "Or, I could show you what I like."
"Being open and honest about what you want and what you like is key to having a healthy, long-lasting relationship," sex and relationship expert Rebecca Lockwood told Insider. "This goes further than the bedroom, it filters into everything we do within our relationships."
She said a starting point for the conversation can be asking what you partner wants and likes, which "gives you an understanding of what you can do to allow them to feel loved, wanted and heard."
Counsellor Deshara Pariag, from Counselling Directory, told Insider you should sit with your partner in an environment with no distractions, and explain how you feel.
"Trust your partner, and note some points you would like to address," she said. "You may be pleasantly surprised by their response. Communication and uncomfortable conversations are normal in a relationship to help you both grow together."

- Business Insider 18:41January 17, 20209 nurse TikTok accounts that share funny parts of the job that non-nurses don't know aboutTikTok Two nurses recently went viral on TikTok after shaming patients for exaggerating their symptoms, and for advocating abstinence over safe sex.
While some nurses have gone viral for the wrong reasons, many nurses on TikTok use the app to talk about their jobs in a humorous way, advise aspiring nurses, and share practical medical advice.
Here are 9 of the best TikTok accounts run by nurses.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Nurses on TikTok have gotten a bad reputation recently.
After popular TikTok user Nurse Holly posted a video promoting abstinence before marriage to prevent STDs, viewers called out the post for being judgmental of sexually active patients. Nurse Holly later took down the video.
Many people also criticized nurses and clinicians for posting videos that made fun of patients who they saw as exaggerating pain or other symptoms. One user named La Nursing Student posted a video mocking patients for having "104 fever for four days" and going days without eating.
But poking fun of patients can be harmful. This is because prejudice significantly impacts black and Hispanic Americans, who are less likely to receive acute pain medication in emergency rooms according to recent research.
While some nurses on TikTok may perpetuate stereotypes in medicine, many others use the app to lightheartedly share experiences about the job that non-nurses don't know about. Some nurses call out sexual harassment at work, or widespread workplace violence.
Plus, some users even give advice to nursing students or share practical medical information.
Here are nine of the best nurse TikTok accounts reviewed by Business Insider and chosen for quality of content and advice. Andrew RN (@nurse_andy) uses humor to describe what it's like to be a male nurse.
Andrew RN uses humor to describe what it's like to be a millennial Asian male nurse. Andrew's experience is unique for many reasons: the average age of a nurse is 50 years old, and just under 10% of nurses are men.
Andrew doesn't hesitate to be realistic about his lifestyle as a nurse. In one TikTok, he joked about how he tells his patients drinking damages their livers, yet posts to his Snapchat about going out on the weekends.
Plus, he even describes all the benefits of dating a nurse — with free healthcare chief among them.

Nurse Tish (@allthingsnursing) reveals the hard realities of being a nurse, while offering guidance to people interested in the position.
Nurse Tish's TikToks reveal the more difficult parts of the job.
In one TikTok, for instance, she said she'll "never get used to" a taking care of a body when a patient dies. In another, she describes being a nurse using adjectives like "tired" and "blamed for everyone's mistakes."
Still, Nurse Tish wants to help aspiring nurses pass their school exams, and has a YouTube channel with in-depth guidance.

RC (@thatonenursein.como) can be found showing off her latest dance moves around the hospital.
RC's TikTok primarily consists of using her breaks at work to show off her dance moves in hospital hallways and supply closets.
Plus, she used one video to leave a heartfelt message to patients: "When a patient downplays or exaggerates their symptoms, we have to think the WORST, because your life is LITERALLY in our hands."

- Guardian 11:00January 17, 2020The healing power of Bauhaus at London's St Mary's hospitalThe work of Josef and Anni Albers has given a bright, bold new look to a children’s intensive care unitThe role of art in hospitals rarely extends beyond hanging pictures on the wall. But for Josef and Anni Albers, art was always much more than that. Both pioneers of modernism, the couple met in 1922 at the Bauhaus school, an establishment with a revolutionary approach to art. Bauhaus blurred the boundaries between craft, design and fine art and championed the concept of gesamtkunstwerk: the complete work of art, typically in the form of a house.But why not a hospital department? That was the thinking of the Albers Foundation which, since the couple’s deaths late last century, has worked to continue their legacy. “Josef and Anni both believed that what we experience through our eyes can divert and elate us in unparalleled ways,” explains Nicholas Fox Weber, the foundation’s director. Taking inspiration from the Albers’ geometric patterns and confident use of colour, the foundation has created a bold new look for the children’s intensive care unit at St Mary’s hospital, London.

- Business Insider 02:41January 17, 20205 ways to look and feel healthier in one week, according to a nutritionist — and 5 things you should never doShutterstock A dietitian and nutritionist, Andy Bellatti, has five pieces of advice to start feeling like your best self and to get on the right track toward losing weight (safely!) in just one week.
To curb bloating, dehydration, and discomfort, drink lots of water, cut sodium, and down fiber.
Don't resort to a juice cleanse, powders, or pills. Those aren't healthy or sustainable ways to keep the weight off.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. As we head into the middle of January, it's time to push through your New Year's resolutions and become your healthiest, most fit self.
But what's the best way to start?
A registered dietitian and nutritionist named Andy Bellatti reveals all the things you should — and should never — do to get you feeling your best in under a week and on the right track.DO: Drink lots of water.
Water is essential — it regulates the shape of every cell inside our bodies. If we don't get enough, in fact, these cells begin to shrivel up. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends choosing water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages to "help with weight management."
Swapping in a cold glass of H2O for a single 20-ounce soda will save you about 240 calories.
So hydrate, Bellatti told Business Insider, "ideally with water."
DON'T: Go on a juice cleanse.
If you're considering a "detox" or "juice cleanse," you might want to reconsider. Only drinking water, juice, or any other liquefied concoction for more than a few days can set you up for unhealthy eating behaviors or lead to spikes and drops in blood-sugar levels, which can spawn cravings and mood swings.
"This is a recipe for 'hangriness,'" Bellatti said, "that also inaccurately paints all solid food as problematic."
DO: Cut back on sodium.
Most of us — 9 out of 10 of US adults, according to the American Heart Association — eat too much sodium, and that's not including any salt added at the table. Too much salt in your diet can cause puffiness and bloating, so cutting back can help you avoid that.
"Sodium retains water," Bellatti said, "so lowering sodium intake also reduces puffiness."

- Business Insider 23:07January 16, 2020A chef who once served $300 Michelin-starred dishes is now making $3 public school lunches, and they look just as tastyHilary Brueck/Insider Chef Dan Giusti used to work at Noma, the Michelin-starred Copenhagen restaurant that's been dubbed the "best restaurant in the world" numerous times, where meals cost more than $350 a head.
Today he runs Brigaid, a company that's cooking meals for public school kids in Connecticut and New York.
The food and labor to make Brigaid meals from scratch costs $3.41 per kid, per meal, the same price that schools would pay for processed, prepackaged heat-and-serve food (and about 100 times cheaper than the fare at Noma.) "It's the first time in my life that I'm actually cooking for other people," Giusti said. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Chef Dan Giusti used to serve strips of beef tartare seasoned with ants to his customers at Noma in Copenhagen.
Five years ago, he was the chef de cuisine at what was then considered the best restaurant in the world.
Today, he wouldn't dream of serving any undercooked meat to his young clients, nor does he garnish any of their toast with fish sperm.
Instead of preparing $350, once-in-a-lifetime meals, he now runs a company training chefs and school foodservice workers to plate $3.41 lunches every day for more than 3,500 schoolkids in Connecticut and the Bronx, New York.
"It's the first time in my life that I'm actually cooking for other people," he told Insider. "When you're cooking for someone once in a while, you can surprise them with things, you can spend a lot of money on the food, the food doesn't necessarily have to be healthy for you. When you're cooking for someone every day, you're feeding them."
The learning curve was steep at first, as Giusti aimed to put his haute cuisine chef's touch on public school dishes, something a lot of the kids didn't want, and refused to eat.
Take a peek at a recent Noma meal, side by side with some of Brigaid's latest cuisine, to see how the federally-compliant meals stack up against a two-Michelin-starred restaurant's.Noma and Brigaid each try to use fresh, local produce in their meals as much as possible. Apples appear on the menu at both spots.
Will Martin/Business Insider
One trick that Giusti has instituted from day one at Brigaid has been cutting up fruit instead of serving it whole. That's how they do things at Noma, and it works here, too.
Brigaid, Will Martin/Business Insider
"They're five years old, and they have four teeth, and they have 10 minutes to eat," Giusti said of his new clients.
Cutting up foods like pineapples, melons, apples, and cantaloupe has sent fruit consumption skyrocketing in the New London school district of Connecticut.
Across the Atlantic Ocean at Noma, tiny balls of apple are scooped out of the fruit and back into its hollowed shell, then served up with seeds and a (fake) edible beetle.
At Brigaid, "we can serve some local and seasonal food," Giusti said, but it's easier to source farm-to-table at Noma, where there are never more than 56 guests at a time.
When Giusti first started Brigaid, he wanted to remain ambitious with the food offerings. A little too ambitious, he soon learned.
Brigaid, Will Martin/Business Insider
Noma chefs sometimes serve up potted herbs like thyme, with dishes like a creamy soup hiding under the leaves (left).
Kids at the New London and New York schools where Brigaid operates are never offered quite the same, but there were other inventive offerings that Giusti tried on them at first.
One of the most hated, he said, was a Thanksgiving-themed turkey sandwich that included cranberry sauce. The mixture of sweet and savory was not a hit with the kids, and has now been replaced with simpler options (above right).
"We roast the Turkey, we slice it ourselves, it's a nice thing, but it's still very plain, because that's what kids want," Giusti said. "The kids who are eating the turkey sandwich want turkey and a slice of cheese, and that's it. As a chef, you're like, 'oh, we gotta put something else on this.' But why?"

- Business Insider 22:28January 16, 20203 things 'You' gets right about serial killers, and 2 things it gets wrongNetflix
Editor's note: This story contains spoilers for the television show "You." Netflix's original thriller series "You" follows serial killer Joe Goldberg as he stalks, obsesses over, and wins the love of different women.
Goldberg also kills various people in his love interest Beck's life as a way to get closer to her.
At times, the show accurately depicts serial killers, like the fact they often kill their victims using the same technique.
But unlike Goldberg's character, serial killers aren't always motivated by love and sex.
Visit Insider's homepage for more. On December 26, Netflix released the highly-anticipated second season of its original thriller series "You," which centers around narrator Joe Goldberg, a young man who has a pattern of becoming obsessed with certain women, stalking them, winning them over, and killing anyone around them he believes has done them wrong.
In both seasons, Goldberg goes on killing sprees over many months, which could classify him as a serial killer, or someone who repeatedly commits murder and usually does so in a pattern, like killing all of the victims in the same way or killing the same types of people, according to the American Psychological Association.
In Goldberg's case, he tortures and kills his victims using the same method: forcing them into a glass box.
Although "You" gets some facts about serial killers correct, like their their ability to charm unsuspecting victims, the show also generalizes serial killer traits and actions through its depiction of Goldberg. As a result, viewers may misunderstand what a serial killer actually is.
Here's what "You" gets right and wrong about serial killers.Fact: Serial killers tend to appear charismatic and charming.
Goldberg, played by Penn Badgley, is handsome and charming. In the beginning of the show's first episode, he has no trouble getting the attention of his soon-to-be obsession and love interest, Beck.
Additionally, fans of the show haven't been shy about sharing the fact they're enamored by Goldberg, even though he's a serial killer.
Non-fictional serial killers do indeed tend to use their wit and charm to win over others' trust and manipulate them into getting what they personally want.
They're also often able to use these traits to fly under the radar. According to the FBI, many now-known serial killers previously went unnoticed because they appeared, on the surface, to lead normal lives with families, homes, and steady jobs.
Fact: Serial killers tend to have underlying personality disorders.
Although the show never reveals what they are, mental health experts previously told Insider Goldberg exhibits certain traits that suggest he has antisocial personality disorder or narcissistic personality disorder, Insider previously reported.
According to the National Institutes of Health, people with antisocial personality disorder lack empathy, and as a result, may act in ways that society considers morally unsound, like manipulating others to get what they want or violating another's privacy.
People with narcissistic personality disorder have an inflated sense of self-importance and lack of empathy for others, which are typically mechanisms used to mask their low self-esteem, according to the Mayo Clinic.
It's true that real-life serial killers tend to have underlying mental illnesses that drive them to act the way they do.
According to the FBI, known serial killers have been diagnosed with various mental health disorders including antisocial personality disorder, which is often referred to as sociopathy or psychopathy, although the medical community doesn't recognize these terms.
Having a personality disorder, however, doesn't cause you to be a serial killer, and people with mental illness in general are much more likely to be victims of violence than perpetrators.
Fact: Serial killers find a way to justify their actions.
In season 1 of "You," Goldberg hit a man named Benji, his love interest Beck's boyfriend at the time, over the head with a mallet, locked him in a glass box, and killed him a few days later.
Later in the season, Goldberg also killed Beck's best friend Peach because he didn't like how Beck and Peach's relationship interfered with his and Beck's relationship.
Goldberg justifies these murders by telling himself that the people he killed weren't good enough for Beck and needed to be out of her life.
Non-fictional serial killers are also able to guiltlessly justify their crimes because they lack empathy, a hallmark trait of antisocial personality disorder.

90 Degree by Reflex/Facebook
If you're looking for comfortable and affordable yoga pants that are true to size, flexible, and move with you, the 90 Degree By Reflex High Waist Power Flex Leggings are your best bet.
The 90 Degree By Reflex High Waist Power Flex Leggings are a versatile pair of leggings that feature a supportive four-way stretch fabric and moisture-wicking technology that will help you prevent chafing and keep you feeling fresh during your workouts.
The sleek, functional leggings also have a hidden pocket in the waistband that allows you to store your belongings and keep your hands free while you pound the pavement or head to a coffee shop. The High Waist Power Flex Leggings also offer gentle compression to your midsection, which works to smooth your silhouette and provide additional support.
They've got a 28-inch inseam, come in as many as 34 colors, and can be bought in packs with multiple pairs. The material is an 87% nylon and 13% spandex blend and should withstand plenty of wear and machine washings. Sizing runs from XS to XXL. And if you don't love them, you can return them for a full refund.
It's a potential con that the pair only comes in one inseam, but the company also sells a highly rated capri style you can check out as well.
Pros: Affordable, moisture-wicking, four-way stretch, hidden pocket, durable
Cons: Only one inseam length
The best cropped yoga pants
The Ododos Power Flex Yoga Capris are a flattering pair of yoga pants that contour to your body for a perfect fit, with a capri style that prevents overheating.
Made with a four-way stretch and opaque fabric, the Ododos Power Flex Yoga Capris are perfect for every type of workout. The stretchy leggings help lift and shape your body, while the thick waistband helps prevent them from falling down while you move.
The capris are designed to be cropped just a few inches below the knee, which should help with breathability if you're someone who overheats easily in a yoga class. They are also made with moisture-wicking and antimicrobial technologies, so you won't feel sweaty and gross after your yoga session.
They're soft, comfortable, and smooth the waist. You can choose from a number of different colors and patterns. Sizes run from Small to XX-Large. The leggings are made from 87% Polyester and 13% Spandex or 87% Nylon and 13% Spandex.
Pros: Affordable, variety of colors and patterns, moisture-wicking, stretchy, comfortable
Cons: Panty lines visible under some of the lighter colored options
The best high-end yoga pants
Sweaty Betty's Yoga Pants come in many fun patterns and stretch fabrics that bend with you, including the Power leggings with both a back and side pocket.
Sweaty Betty's workout gear is all about performance and style. The Power Leggings are also a great pick for anyone looking to leave the house with as few accessories as possible. As well as being made from a stretchy, sweat-wicking, quick-drying material, the Power pair has both back (zippered) and side pockets for all your essentials.
They're high waisted so they won't fall down on you, have a bit of compression and "bum-sculpting" and they're opaque enough to weather squats. Plus, the sculptural seams are pretty flattering. You can get them in six different colors and patterns, which range from subtle to fun.
Sweaty Betty also makes our favorite running tights for the gym and our favorite workout gear for women.
The leggings come in sizes XXS to XL, and the 7/8 length should mean they're a safer bet for a range of heights.
Pros: Quick-drying material, snug fit, great for any type of workout
