He never missed an opportunity to say, ‘OK, let's pray for it right now,” Ebony said, adding that her husband “always made an effort to let people know that he cared.”

CEO George Sherman will step down on or before July 31, the company said Monday, in the latest twist in the company’s attempt at a turnaround.His exit paves the way for top shareholder Ryan Cohen to have even more control as he looks to transform GameStop from a brick-and-mortar retailer to an e-commerce contender.Cohen, who rose to fame as co-founder and former CEO of online pet company Chewy, became chairman of the GameStop board earlier this month – but has yet to detail his transformation plan.Other top executives including the chief financial officer and the chief customer officer have departed in recent weeks.GameStop on Monday also confirmed that the search for a new CEO has already begun.

White House also considering ban on menthol cigarettes
The Biden administration is considering measures that would force tobacco companies to reduce the amount of nicotine in all cigarettes to nonaddictive or minimally addictive levels, people familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal. The administration is also weighing whether to ban menthol cigarettes, the Journal reports. Federal data shows that every year, 226 billion cigarettes are sold in the U.S., and about a third are menthol cigarettes. Menthol creates a cooling sensation in the throat, making menthol cigarettes an attractive product for young people and new smokers, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says some studies have shown people who smoke menthols have a harder time quitting than those who smoke non-menthol cigarettes. The Food and Drug Administration and National Institutes of Health have also funded research that showed when nicotine was almost completely removed from cigarettes, smokers were more likely to quit or turn to alternatives that are less harmful, like lozenges or gum, the Journal reports. Annually, 480,000 deaths in the U.S. are linked to cigarettes. A spokesman for Altria, the maker of Marlboro, told the Journal that any action "must be made on science and evidence and must consider the real-world consequences of such actions, including the growth of an illicit market and the impact on hundreds of thousands of jobs from the farm to local stores across the country." The Journal notes that if the Biden administration goes through with reducing nicotine and banning menthols, it will take years for the policies to go into effect and they will likely face multiple legal challenges.

Syria will hold a presidential election on May 26 that is virtually certain to return President Bashar al-Assad for a third term- an event that Washington and the opposition say is a farce designed to cement his autocratic rule.Assad's family and Baath party have ruled Syria for five decades with the help of the security forces and the army, where his Alawite minority dominates.This year is the 10th anniversary of a bloody crackdown on pro-democracy protesters which triggered a civil war that has left much of Syria in ruins.The conflict has sucked in world powers, killed hundreds of thousands of people, and displaced millions.But it's now nearing its end with Assad, supported by Russian and Iranian allies, back in control of most of the country.Candidates for May's election must have lived in Syria for the last 10 years, which prevents key opposition figures in exile from standing.Assad came to power in 2000 after the death of his father, long-time President Hafez al-Assad.His supporters say Washington and its Western allies are seeking to bring Assad down with the crippling sanctions they have imposed.
