Time travelers and protests and emails, oh my!
Happening in the World:
Earlier this week a photo was discovered in the University of Washington archives of three children in the Yukon territory during the gold rush of the late 1800s. The photo blew up on social media when people noticed that one of the children bore a striking resemblance to climate activist, Greta Thunberg. Online people are joking about her secret time-traveling abilities and now the only question is “where will she go next?” (HuffPost)
Happening in the US:
A broadcast journalist from Kansas City made the mistake of sending his sick day email to the entire national corporation instead of his immediate superiors. The national organization banded together to send their well wishes to anchor Nick Vasos taking to twitter with the hashtag #PrayersforNick. Next time I think he will be checking his emails more closely. (HuffPost)
Happening in New York:
This week protests surrounding the MTA fare evasion arrests turned more violent with protesters becoming more aggressive as time goes on. In addition to protesting many people took to vandalization of the subway cars as well as police cars causing the arrent of about 60 people. (Fox)
