In this undated photo made available by the Friends of the Hunley,Inc, shows a Clemson University conservator attempting to separate the keel block from the Hunley at the Warren Lash Conservation Center in North Charleston, S.C. Scientists studying the world's first submarine to sink an enemy ship said Wednesday, July 18, 2018, that the doomed Confederate crew did not release an emergency mechanism that could have helped the vessel surface quickly. The 1,000 pounds (454 kilograms) of what are called keel blocks would typically keep the H.L. Hunley upright, but also could be released with three levers, allowing the sub to surface quickly in an emergency. (Johanna Rivera/ Friends of the Hunley, Inc, via AP)

Soy and almond drinks don’t come from cows, so regulators may soon ask them to stop calling themselves “milk.” The Food and Drug Administration signaled plans to start enforcing a federal standard that defines “milk” as coming from the “milking of one or more healthy cows.” That would mark a change for the agency, which has not aggressively gone after the proliferation of plant-based drinks labeled as “milk.”  (AP Photo/Patrick Sison)
