Bwoglines: Italian Trap Music Edition

Will the Nightlife Ambassador come to 1020?

Happening in the World: Chilean actress Daniela Vega became the first transgender presenter at the Oscars last week. Upon returning home, she began speaking out about the inequalities the trans community faces in the country. A gender identity bill that would allow trans people to identify with their preferred names is being considered by congressional committee but an incoming conservative administration puts its fate in jeopardy. (BBC)

Happening in the US: The Department of Justice is suing the state of California for it’s so-called sanctuary immigration policies. Passed in 2017, these limit government officials’ and employers’ ability to help federal immigration agents and allows the state to review the conditions in which detainees are kept. (Vox)

Happening in NYC: The city has appointed its first Nightlife Mayor. Ariel Palitz will serve as the ambassador between the city and its bars, cabarets, and burlesques. At the beginning of her tenure, she’s promised to hold listening tours and listen to complaints of those bothered by nightlife in the city. (NYT)

Happening on Campus: Provided you can pull yourself away from your midterms long enough to trudge through the snow, head to IAB from 12 to 2 pm for a talk by Tamara Martsenyuk: Ukrainian Women at War: The Successes and Challenges of the “Invisible Battalion”. It focuses on the role women played during recent conflicts, it talks about how women in the country challenged traditional gender roles and their participation in these conflicts.

Overheard: “My RA hosted a study break where all we did was listen to Italian trap music.”

Word of the Day: Magari, an Italian word for “maybe” or “if only” or basically anything you wish will happen even though it probably won’t. For example, If only I had studied for my LitHum midterm, then I wouldn’t have to stay up til 8 AM.

    @Anonymous Leonidas and his 200 Spartans begat the agrarian warrior glory of western civilization while Huntington’s Clash put Athens in the Islamo-Soviet zone. Sparta colonized Sicily, hence begat Rome, while Athens colonized Scythia hence begat Russia. Alexander’s dad choked Athens by grabbing the Besant straits to choke off Scythian wheat. Macedonia was Great because the population was mostly Albanian Illyrian Pelasgians, and the royalty was from Spartan Argos. The Athenians are the source of all heathen leftist ideas like globalist commerce, Delian central banking and socialist taxation. Herodotus (i57,ii1,vi137) knew the Arvanitas of Koropi were Pelasgians which is why Metxas expunged it. All the emperors of the Besant married Athenian women which is why they begat Islam and communism.
