Bwoglines: Stop Body-Shaming Rats Edition

Did you know “Wednesday” is named after the Anglo-Saxon god, Woden? Neither did anyone else!

Happening in the World: A rat in the town of Bensheim, Germany required assistance from volunteer firefighters and an animal rescue expert on Tuesday after lodging itself in a sewer manhole. The rat’s chubbiness prevented it from easily sliding out of the hole, but she managed to escape unharmed after firefighters removed the entire manhole cover. (BBC News)

Happening in the US: The House of Representatives voted to nullify President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency over border wall funding on Tuesday. (US News)

Happening in NYC: Strong winds on the Hudson River prevented the Norwegian Gem, a cruise ship, from docking in New York City on Tuesday night. The ship floated idly in the water with an unknown number of passengers on board for hours. (New York Post)

Happening on Campus: There will be an Undergraduate Human Rights Open House in room 320C of The Interchurch Center on Riverside Drive from 1:00-1:30 PM, as well as pizza with Professor Cristina Dragomir from 12:00-1:00 PM. Students considering a major or concentration in human rights are encouraged to attend.

Overheard on Lerner Ramps: “We pay too much money to be standing on a slope.”
