June 26, 2018: What to Know 

  • One of the first shoes to drop in the wake of President Donald Trump's trade war with the European Union is actually a boot. The New York Times reports that Harley-Davidson says it will shift a number of American jobs to Europe in order to manufacture more motorcycles overseas and avoid new tariffs that the EU imposed in response to Trump's trade measures.
  • Vanity Fair says embattled EPA chief Scott Pruitt is running out of staffers to fire. Only on the job for a year and a half, Pruitt is already being investigated for retaliating against at least a half dozen employees who have officially complained about his ethics.

  • A Boise couple has already bonded out of jail after being charged with sheltering their six children in what law enforcement calls "filthy and dangerous" living conditions. Lawrence Rose, 43, and Jamie Rose, 42, each face a felony charge of injury to a child. After being arrested by the Ada County Sheriff's Office, the children were declared to be in imminent danger and were taken into state custody. Meanwhile, the parents each posted a $25,000 bond. They're scheduled to appear in Ada County Court on Friday, July 6.

  • The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is continuing its effort to diversify: 928 invitations went out to possible new members on June 25 and nearly half are women. Among the invitees are Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip), Daisy Ridley (Star Wars), Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing) and 14-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild). The Hollywood Reporter says even if everyone accepts the invitations, the overall academy will still only be 31 percent female.
