With tensions in the Persian Gulf increasing, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says Iran needs to "come to the table" for negotiations. The Iranians seized a British oil tanker today. They also boarded another British-owned tanker, but eventually let it go.       Google and the Federal Trade Commission are reaching a settlement over the company's violation of the privacy rights of children. The Washington Post reports details have not been announced. The FTC charged Google's YouTube with failing to protect children when they improperly collected their data on the video-sharing website.       The Trump administration is proposing to change the citizenship questions that immigrants must answer. The questions were last updated in 2008. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli says, "I just think we need to freshen the material."        There are excessive heat warnings for a number of U.S. cities this weekend. The temperature could reach close to 100 degrees in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington, Boston, New York, Chicago and St. Louis. And it won't be a dry heat. A number of cities are opening up cooling centers and urging residents to stay indoors.       The Justice Department is charging a New Yorker with assisting ISIS as a sniper and weapons instructor. Prosecutors claim Ruslan Asainov traveled to Syria in 2013 to join ISIS. They claim he rose to the level of emir and helped the group obtain weapons. He was arrested in Syria and returned to the U.S.       At least one Nebraska woman is sure that Spider-Man is a demon. The Lincoln Journal Star report the woman wants the city to remove a six-food sculpture of Spider-Man's hand at the Lincoln Zoo. She said the red-and-black design has the hands formed into Devil Horns. The city responded its part of a public art project sponsored by a Christian group.
