Written by Zoe Sottile
What’s Happening In The World: Experts in the United Nations have reported that North Korea has shipped supplies to Syria that could be used to produce chemical weapons. The danger of this exchange goes both ways – Syria gets chemical weapons, North Korea gets funding for their nuclear weapons. (New York Times)
What’s Happening In The US: According to current and former U.S. officials, foreign officials in at least four countries discussed ways to manipulate Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and also a spineless sack of mashed potatoes. Members of the White House have expressed concerns that he was “naive and being tricked.” Poor Kush. (Washington Post)
What’s Happening In NYC: Today is the last day to visit the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for free! If you have a few hours to kill today, make the trek and check out some beautiful plants between 10:00 am and 4:30 pm.
What’s Happening On Campus: Visiting Scholar IAS and postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Antwep Hannah Hoechner is giving a talk called “Islamic Education and the ‘Diaspora’: Religious Schooling for Senegalese Migrants’ Children.” Check it out in Knox Hall from 12:10 pm to 2:00 pm.
