When it comes time to spiff up your home, it’s easy to run through your normal cleaning routine without thinking twice about it. Although it can feel like second nature, some common cleaning habits could actually do more harm than good. Plus, leaving behind bacteria, dust and grime only creates more work for you in the long run.

South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol says his government has no plans to pursue its own nuclear deterrent in the face of growing North Korean nuclear threats as he urged the North to return to dialogue aimed at exchanging denuclearization steps for economic benefits. Yoon’s comments during a news conference came hours after South Korea’s military detected the North firing two cruise missiles toward its western waters. Yoon said South Korea doesn’t desire political change in North Korea that’s brought by force and called for diplomacy aimed at building sustainable peace between the rivals. Yoon’s comments came days after he proposed an “audacious” economic assistance package to North Korea if it abandons its nuclear weapons program.

Scott Morrison says giving himself extra powers when he was Australia’s prime minister was necessary during the coronavirus crisis as criticism rose the moves were deceptive and undemocratic. Current Prime Minister Anthony Albanese is seeking an opinion from the solicitor-general on the legality of some of Morrison’s moves. Many of Morrison’s own colleagues were blindsided by his decision to secretly appoint himself to five ministerial roles. Some have called for him to resign from Parliament, where he is now an opposition lawmaker after losing the general election to Albanese earlier this year. Morrison said he’d rather be criticized for overstepping the mark than for not taking action.

A California appeals court says a church that defied safety regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic by holding large religious services won’t have to pay about $200,000 in fines. The 6th District Court of Appeals on Monday reversed the fines and contempt-of-court findings against Calvary Chapel San Jose for holding the gatherings in 2020 and 2021 at the peak of the pandemic. The court cited a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year that said the size limits on indoor worship services violated freedom of religion. However, the county of San Jose says the ruling doesn't cover other COVID-19 rules violations, such as mask-wearing, and it will continue to seek some $2.3 million in penalties over those regulations.
