Bwog reminding you that time is short! 

Happening in the World: Boris Johnson has unveiled his Brexit blueprint, but many European officials have dismissed his proposals as a non-starter. With three weeks left to go until the Brexit deadline of October 31st and Johnson unwilling to further delay Brexit, time is running out to avoid a no-deal Brexit. (CNN)

Happening in the US: The China-US trade war has crushed a growing market for US cranberries. As harvests for cranberries swelled, farmers were previously able to offload capacity into a growing Chinese cranberry market. However, the China-US trade war has cut off farmers from this crucial market and produced a glut in the US cranberry market causing a 62% drop in prices since 2008. (NPR)

Happening in NYC: The government of New York City wants to place a climate change ‘laboratory’ on Governors Island in Manhattan to investigate solutions to the omnipresent threat of climate change. The proposal would transform Governors Island into “a major center for climate adaptation research, commercialization, conversation, and policymaking.” (NYT)
