Bwoglines: Brexit Edition

Remember Brexit? Here are some Bwoglines to refresh your memory.

Happening in the world: Boris Johnson reaffirms his support of Brexit and plans to make Britain leave the European Union by October 31. He is said to be attending an EU summit on October 17 in order to negotiate a Brexit deal in order to meet his “deadline.” (Reuters)

Happening in the US: After it was revealed that he accepted financial contributions from Jeffery Epstein, a multimillionaire who was imprisoned on charges of sex trafficking, Joichi Ito, the director of MIT’s Media Labs, has resigned. It is reported that Ito took $525,000 from Epstein for the lab and $1.2 million for his private investment funds. (NBC)

Happening in NYC: The famous Charging Bull statue on Wall Street has been damaged by an attacker who smashed his banjo on the statue’s head and horns, creating visible scratches and breaks. The banjo-wielding attacker has been charged with criminal mischief, criminal possession of a weapon, and disorderly conduct. (CBS)

Happening on campus: The Center for Career Education and the Columbia Women’s Business Society are hosting an industry showcase for those interested in financial services, but not necessarily interested in working for big banks. This event will be tomorrow from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm in Lerner 555. You can find out more here.

    @Anonymous Would someone please tell those racists who think Brexit will rid them of all those immigrants that in fact the Anglosphere immigrants are a lot less, dare I say, white, than those of the EU.
