Here's what we're following today.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in the hospital to treat a possible infection. She spiked a fever Monday night, according to a press release from the Supreme Court, and on Tuesday underwent an endoscopic procedure to clean out a bile duct stent that was inserted in August.

Jeff Sessions has lost a bid to regain his old Alabama U.S. Senate seat after falling from grace as President Trump's attorney general. Former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville handily beat Sessions in the state's runoff election for the Republican nomination.

International students will be permitted to stay in the U.S. for the fall semester if their school chooses to hold online-only classes. Last week, Harvard and MIT sued U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement over a rule that would have barred those international students from the country unless they enrolled in at least one in-person class.

A federal judge denied bail Tuesday for Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime confidant of Jeffrey Epstein, saying she was a flight risk. Maxwell pleaded not guilty to charges related to her alleged role in the sexual abuse of girls and young women by the late financier.

Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., said Tuesday that she would lift a hold on more than 1,100 senior military promotions after the Department of Defense assured her that it did not block the promotion of Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman – a key witness in the impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

President Trump is making major changes to a bedrock environmental law that he says will help the economy. The aim is to speed up approval for major projects like pipelines and highways, but critics say it could sideline the concerns of poor and minority communities affected by the projects.

The human brain can process 11 million bits of information every second. But our conscious minds can handle only 40 to 50 bits of information a second. So our brains sometimes take cognitive shortcuts that can lead to unconscious or implicit bias; and that can have serious effects on how we perceive and act toward other people. This episode of the Short Wave podcast considers the source of unconscious bias, how it works in the brain and ultimately impacts society. (Listen here)

On Site Opera, a company that stages performances in unlikely places, has changed its format during the pandemic. Now it organizes live performances for an audience of just one — over the phone. (Listen here)
