Utah became the 12th state to prohibit biological males from playing on female sports teams when its legislature on Friday overrode the governor’s veto of the bill. Governor Cox of Utah, was the second governor this week to veto legislation focused on transgender participation in sports. Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb also vetoed a bill banning transgender athletes from choosing their own sports teams, saying he found no evidence of unfairness.

Holocaust Survivors Reunite In Florida After Almost 80 Years
Jack Waksal and Sam Ron spent more than a year together in the Pionki forced labor camp in Poland during the Holocaust. After the war, neither man knew if the other had survived. Fast forward 79 years when Waksal recognized Ron at a benefit event for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The two started catching up on each other’s stories. Waksal had escaped the camp and survived six months in the forest in winter. Ron was moved to another camp and then American liberators saved him from a Nazi death march.
