Written by Sarah Harty
Happening In The World: Now that speculation over Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy is over and done with, it’s time to talk about another bump: The so-called “Trump bump” that kept stock markets booming over the past year is now over. The Dow and S&P both dropped about four percent on Monday in the worst day since August 2011. (NYTimes)
Happening In The US: One possible reason for the above piece of news is that a new Federal Reserve Chair was sworn in on Monday. Jerome Powell replaced Janet Yellen, leading to uncertainty from investors who cannot be sure how Powell will tackle interest rates. (WSJ)
Happening In NYC: If you needed another reason to get a flu shot, two children have already died from it in New York this season. They’re free at Columbia and Barnard. Just do it. (NBC New York)
Happening At Columbia: Tonight from 6 – 7 pm in Sulz Parlor, Barnard recommences its poetry readings with visits from Frank Bidart and Eleanor Chai. The event is open to the public.
Bop of the Day: For your FWB.
