Melania Trump got booed by kids today: while visiting her husband's favorite place, Baltimore, for an opioid awareness youth summit. This is believed to be Melania's first public boo-ing without her husband. Equality! The attendees were mostly high school and middle schoolers, according to a CNN reporter at the scene. Here's a video:

Trump and the White House have a few days to respond whether or not they will participate in the House Judiciary Committee's upcoming public impeachment hearings: Chairman Jerry Nadler announced a Dec. 4 hearing today. Trump has until Sunday, Dec. 1, at 6 p.m. to respond if he has any plans on participating and which counsel will represent him.

When you're cold over the next few days, think of this: It can always be worse.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news: Some of those expensive ass Evergreens salads might be poopy. I CANNOT SAY FOR SURE, don't sue me*, but an E. coli outbreak has been connected to four Evergreens restaurants in Seattle, according to the Seattle & King County Department of Public Health. This outbreak is believed to be unrelated to the recent romaine lettuce E. coli outbreak. More from the Seattle Times: "The six people [who have tested positive for E. coli] reported eating at the chain’s restaurants in Pioneer Square, the University District, Chinatown International District and downtown (on Third Avenue and Marion Street), all of which have excellent food-safety ratings, according to Public Health."

There's a new trailer for the upcoming season of The Bachelor: I don't care about this but so many of you do, so here you go, Rose Buddies.

The fifth deadly feral hog attack documented in the United States in nearly two centuries: happened on Sunday morning in rural Texas. RIP Christine Rollins.

Trump is donating his 3rd-quarter salary to help fight the opioid crisis: He donated his 2nd-quarter salary to the surgeon general's office. These are facts your conservative aunt will probably bring up over Thanksgiving.

Washington State Department of Transportation released a list of 26 projects they're deferring for six months because of I-976: Here's the list. Some of the big delays include a project extending SR 509 and connecting it to I-5 near Sea-Tac, the HOV ramp connection between SR 520 and I-5 in Seattle, and a new section of Highway 12 in Walla Walla County. Those two Seattle-area projects are estimated to be worth around $300 million combined, so Seattle is losing big because of statewide voters.

Why is Facebook blocking users from sharing a link to a website called The website was created by digital rights group Fight for the Future and links to articles about Amazon's home surveillance system, the Amazon Ring, and its relationship with police departments. The website encourages visitors to write to members of Congress, but Facebook—as of Gizmodo publishing this article—is blocking the link from being shared. Why?

How are things shaking out in the upcoming British election? Jeremy Corbyn's Labour manifesto is promising a four-day workweek. Boris Johnson is blubbering on about how the U.K. just needs to "Get Brexit Done." Who will win out? The New York Times has a good new op-ed on the divisive election. "The fact that Brexit really is on the line in this election may well be enough to rally Leavers to return Mr. Johnson to the prime minister’s office—so he can finish the job," speculates Katy Balls.

Who is most likely to have cable? People who watch sports and news, according to a new presentation from analyst Michael Nathanson. Another insight from Nathanson's talk: Out of Netflix's top 20 shows, two are leaving the platform (Friends and The Office), four were canceled (Orange Is the New Black, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and House of Cards), and five aren't Netflix originals (The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Shameless, Grey's Anatomy, and NCIS). That leaves only 9 out of 20 of Netflix's top shows, putting the streaming giant in a difficult position going forward in the streaming wars. Compounding that problem, Disney is spending a projected $18.7 billion on programming expenses this year. Netflix, on the other hand, is only spending $9.2 billion. If you want to get wonky, all of Nathanson's slides are here. The full speech:
