Wall Street "Occupiers" have had their encampments swept out of New York City's Zuccotti Park, public spaces in Oakland, Calif., Portland, Ore., and other cities around the country. The question is, what now? What just happened, and what can we look forward to?

The Food and Drug Administration would have more power to regulate toothpaste, deodorant, hair treatments and other beauty products under a bill proposed by an Illinois Democrat - a move critics consider regulatory overreach.
"The increasing number of reports of serious health issues stemming from the use of dangerous chemicals in beauty products ... proves that there is a need to protect both the safety of consumers as well as the safety of workers from harmful exposure," she said in a statement.
