      Will he go or not? Chinese President Xi Jinping is keeping Hong Kong guessing about his possible appearance at the 25th anniversary of the former British colony’s return to China. The government has yet to say whether he will attend in person the events, which include the inauguration of the city's new chief executive.

      The pandemic-era federal aid that made school meals available for free to all public school students — regardless of family income levels — is ending, raising fears about the effects in the upcoming school year for families already struggling with rising food and fuel costs. A bill passed in Congress last week and signed by President Joe Biden over the weekend is intended to allow summer meal distributions to remain widely available for students. It also gives higher reimbursement for meals to schools while providing some flexibilities to help them deal with increasing food prices and supply chain issues.

      Reproductive health providers have asked a state court in Florida to block a new law limiting abortion from taking effect on Friday, arguing that the state constitution guarantees a broad right to privacy including abortion. Planned Parenthood is among those seeking a temporary emergency injunction. A Florida synagogue also sued, saying the government intrusion violates the privacy rights and religious freedoms of Jewish women. Florida currently allows abortions up to 24 weeks.
