Bwoglines: Bees?! Edition

Written by

Picture this, but filled with bees.

Happening in the world: In case you missed it, the US, the UK, and France coordinated air strikes in Syria on Friday night, bombing three government sites in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack last week. (BBC)

Happening in the US: Kentucky lawmakers overrode the governor’s veto on a state budget that increased public education spending, in a win for teachers whose protests had forced over 30 school districts to close. It’s another in a wave of recent teacher protests, but unlike those in Oklahoma, Arizona, and West Virginia, Kentucky educators are focusing on spending and pension reform. (Washington Post)

Happening in NYC: Today in “heartwarming but also terrifying,” read about a group of people gathering in Bryant Park to buy their share of 3 million bees delivered by truck. A haunting image: taking bees home by subway. Beekeeping was only made legal in NYC in 2010. (NY Times)

Happening on campus: Join Columbia Q&A (Queer & Asian) tonight at 6:30 pm in the Stephen Donaldson Lounge (first floor of Schapiro) for dinner and a short film screening! More info can be found on the Facebook event page.
