Bwoglines: School Spirit Edition

Majestic, like our football team after we go 5-0 today (a gal can dream).

Happening in the World: Joshua Boyle, a 34-year-old Canadian man held hostage with his family by a Afghanistan-based Taliban faction for five years, spoke about his experiences late Friday. Captured in October 2012, Boyle said that his captors had killed their infant daughter, Margaret Boyle, and raped his wife, Caitlan Coleman. The family was rescued Wednesday, after battle between US-supported Pakistani troops and the militants. (NYT)

Happening in the US: After issuing an executive order Thursday that ended Obamacare’s payments to insurers, which had helped lower costs for poor Americans, healthcare stocks fell on Friday – a fact that Trump celebrated through a series of tweets. He asserted that his order will “allow greatly expanded access and far lower costs for HealthCare. Millions of people benefit!” Mmmm, OK. (Business Insider)



Happening in NYC: As covered this week in both the New York Times and The New Yorker, the most exclusive bar in New York is…a supply closet? The Bushwick bar, named The Threesome Tollbooth, only has capacity for a bartender and two guests, which creator N.D. Austin says is designed so guests can “own the space.” Visits cost $100-$120 per person every hour. (Gothamist)

Happening on campus: If you haven’t yet noticed, the Columbia homecoming football game, in which the Columbia Lions will be facing off with the Penn Quakers, is today! Shuttles beginning at 10:30 am meet at 114th and Broadway and take you right to the Baker Athletics Complex every 15 minutes. At noon, enjoy free hot dogs and beverages at the Pre-Game Picnic Area, beginning 90 minutes prior to kickoff at 1:30 pm. And make sure to brush up on your Columbia fight song! Roar, Lions, Roar!


NYC truly is the art capital of the world.
