How Mark Hogancamp's Marwencol Became 'Welcome To Marwen'

In 2000, five men beat Mark Hogancamp so brutally he was left with no memory. Besides relearning how to eat, walk and write, Hogancamp imagined a new past . He built a detailed miniature town where he acts out World War II-era story lines using dolls. Then, he photographs them. The vignettes follow his alter ego, Hogie, a pilot who lands near the imaginary Belgian town of Marwencol. "On Second Thought" guest David Naugle, an Atlanta-based photographer and director, first encouraged Hogancamp to share those realistic photos beyond his small, upstate New York town. That led to an art magazine publication, gallery shows, the documentary "Marwencol" and now, "Welcome to Marwen," a Hollywood film starring Steve Carell as Hogancamp. It opens in theaters across the country Dec. 21.

Surgeon General Warns Youth Vaping Is Now An 'Epidemic'

Vaping by U.S. teenagers has reached epidemic levels, threatening to hook a new generation of young people on nicotine. That's according to an unusual advisory issued Tuesday U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams about the the dangers of electronic cigarette use among U.S. teenagers. "I am officially declaring e-cigarette use among youth an epidemic in the United States," Adams said at a news conference. "Now is the time to take action. We need to protect our young people from all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes." The surgeon general's advisory called on parents and teachers to educate themselves about the variety of e-cigarettes and to talk with children about their dangers. Health professionals should ask about e-cigarettes when screening patients for tobacco use, the advisory said. And local authorities should use strategies, such as bans on indoor vaping and retail restrictions, to discourage vaping by young people. The advisory was prompted by the latest statistics on vaping

Justice Department Bans Bump Stocks, Devices Used In Deadly Las Vegas Shooting

The Trump administration is banning bump stocks, the firearm attachment that allows a semi-automatic weapon to shoot almost as fast as a machine gun. The devices, also known as slide fires, came under intense scrutiny after they were used by the gunman who opened fire on a country music concert in Las Vegas last year, killing 58 people. The massacre touched off a public outcry, including from some lawmakers, for the accessories to be banned. Under a new federal rule announced Tuesday by the Justice Department, bump stocks will be redefined as "machine guns" and therefore outlawed under existing law. The new regulations, which were signed by acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, will take effect 90 days after being published in the Federal Register . A Justice Department official said that would likely happen Friday. Current bump stock owners will have the 90 days before the new rule takes effect to either destroy the devices they own or turn them in to the Bureau of Alcohol,

Giant, 'Extremely Dangerous' Waves Crash Into California Coast

Massive waves are breaking along the coast of California, and the National Weather Service is warning of "potentially life-threatening conditions" and urging people to stay away from the water. Forecasters began warning of high waves over the weekend, saying a swell would strike Sunday afternoon through Tuesday, with the peak on Monday morning. The NWS warned of waves that could reach "50+ feet at favored breaks." As of Tuesday morning, the surf in Los Angeles was at 16 to 22 feet, the weather service says, while San Francisco was seeing breakers of 15 to 25 feet. The waves are so dangerous that the NWS isn't just telling people to stay out of the water — it's warning them to back away from the beach completely. "Sneaker waves may suddenly wash over previously dry sand or rocks, sweeping you into the water," the NWS Oxnard warned residents in Southern California. "There is a threat of significant beach erosion and possible damage to piers and coastal structures." The Ventura Pier has
