The Daily Crunch is TechCrunch's roundup of our biggest and most important stories. If you'd like to get this delivered to your inbox every day at around 9am Pacific, you can subscribe here. 1. San Francisco takes the final steps toward becoming the first U.S. city to ban vaping product sales San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors unanimously approved an ordinance that prohibits the sale of e-cigarettes within the city. San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera, who co-sponsored the ban, told Bloomberg that products will be allowed to be sold in the city again if they receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration. 2.

Its unique value prop was offering a verification service, so that you knew when you were buying the real deal. 3. FTC, Justice Dept. takes coordinated action against robocallers In the so-called “Operation Call It Quits,” the Federal Trade Commission brought four cases — two filed on its behalf by the Justice Department — and three settlements against parties said to be responsible for making more than a billion illegal robocalls. 4. 300M-user meme site Imgur raises $20M from Coil to pay creators Coil is a micropayment tool for creators, and Imgur says it will eventually launch a premium membership with exclusive features and content reserved for Coil subscribers. 5. 'The Office' is leaving Netflix in 2021 because NBC wants it back By far the most popular show on Netflix in 2018, "The Office" was bound to leave the service eventually — or, at the very least, see some huge contract renegotiations. NBCUniversal, meanwhile, sees it as an important asset for its upcoming streaming service. 6. MIT AI tool can predict breast cancer up to 5 years early, works equally well for white and black patients MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab has developed a new deep learning-based AI prediction model that can anticipate the development of breast cancer up to five years in advance. 7. How to scale a start-up in school If you’re serious about starting and scaling your business in school, treat your time in school like an extended incubator. (Extra Crunch membership required.)
