Washington State knows exactly how to get through to the teens: Is your teen vaping? No need to fear, Washington State and its no more vaping app is here. The app is the snappily named "2Murrow Health." (The "2" means "two," teens these days are crazy about this kind of lingo.) It's supposed to appeal to the youth to get them to kick that dirty vape addiction in light of all the health concerns surrounding vaping.
Finland stabbing spree: A man targeted a school in a shopping mall in northern Finland. One person is declared dead while 10 others are injured. He was wielding a sword and was allegedly a student at the school.
Happy 70th birthday to Communist Party rule in China: Police just shot a Hong Kong protester with live rounds. This is the first time a protester has been shot since these protests began back in June. Hong Kong protesters staged their own marches today in an attempt to overshadow the celebrations happening in Beijing. The protester who was shot was a teenager. He was shot in the left shoulder, according to reports.
Washington's 8th District will see another heated race: It feels like it was only yesterday that Dino Rossi and Co. were fighting tooth and nail for Representative Dave Reichert's 8th Congressional District seat. Dr. Kim Schrier—now Representative Kim Schrier (unless it's Reprepsentative Dr. Kim Schrier, someone look it up, I'm still coming out of a lovely Nyquil-induced fog)—won the seat and became the first Democrat to do so. She will have a challenger in the next election, a former army captain and Amazon manager named Jesse Jensen, who thinks Schrier is too dang liberal.
The Seattle Times asked important Seattleites what they're reading: I'll spare you a click. King County Council member Larry Gossett is reading The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson and has read Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates the most. HIs challenger in the election, Girmay Zahilay, is reading Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond and has read Harry Potter the most.
Seattle City Council protects tenants: The big one was a bill that protected victims of domestic violence from any landlord charges related to their abuse. That means, for instance, a landlord can no longer bill a victim for any damage caused by the abuser. There was also a bill that allowed tenants the right to live with roommates or family members and more.
Good luck on your chilly Tuesday: I hope that instead of this weather exacerbating the cold I have, it will shock it into hiding.

Olympia school bus driver gets a DUI: While driving the school bus. It was, as they say, "not a great look" when this driver was pulled over for drinking and driving while schlepping kids to school. A student called the cops when the driver ran through multiple red lights. The district will be changing its policy to make sure that drivers interact with office staff before getting into the bus. This may become a statewide adoption.
Mark Zuckerberg rails against Elizabeth Warren: The Verge has obtained two hours of leaked audio of the Facebook CEO and founder. There's more here.
Red meat might not actually be that bad: For your body, that is. According to new study results, eating less beef and pork doesn't really impact health that much. Advising against red meat and pork was pretty much the bedrock of dietary and nutritional science. The new study has faced backlash from a myriad of organizations such as the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society, which are worried the findings "harm the credibility of nutrition science and erode public trust in scientific research.” That's great news for Donald Trump's diet.
Woman decides to be a model, joins the catwalk: A woman hopped into the line of strutting models during Chanel's finale at Paris Fashion Week. She made it pretty far.
And then was escorted out by none other than supermodel Gigi Hadid:
Okay, so: It doesn't seem like anything has happened with impeachment since yesterday with that Australia phone call... But there is a handy new tool to check all impeachment news. Just go here to see if you've missed anything. (Or come to Slog! We're good with impeachment news, too!)
Judge allows jury to use castle doctrine in murder trial: Just a quick backup. The castle doctrine is basically a kind of stand your ground law. It's the notion that your home is your castle and you have the right to defend it. The judge in this murder trial has allowed the jury to use it. Except the woman, a white police woman, shot and killed a black man when she entered his apartment and killed him, assuming she was in her apartment and he was breaking in. Nope.
