Bwoglines: Unfortunate Lunar New Year Edition

On the morning of Lunar New Year, this edition of Bwoglines covers natural disasters, lost museum pieces, and the effects of the dangerous coronavirus.

Happening in the World: A 40-second earthquake hit eastern Turkey last night, killing at least 22 people and injuring at least 1,000. The natural disaster has damaged multiple buildings, collapsing five of them in Elazig (CNN).

Happening in the US: The Senate impeachment trial continues, beginning today with Trump’s legal team presenting arguments for the defense. The defense has stated that today’s argument will offer a “sneak preview” of the team’s full argument, which will begin on Monday. Reports believe that Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow has hinted at the defense going after Former Vice President Joe Biden (CNN).

Happening in NYC: On Thursday, New York’s Museum of Chinese in America went up in flames. Reports say that the amount of damage is yet to be determined, with museum officials worried about possible damage caused by the water sprayed to put out the fire (NBC News). Four individuals were detained yesterday in fear of the coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China. Only one individual has tested negative for the virus, as reports wait to receive the results of the three remaining tests. Mayor de Blasio advises that anyone experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus should see a doctor as soon as possible (Gothamist).

Happening on Campus: The Dr. Sander Invitational Columbia Challenge, known as one of the “biggest and best” collegiate track meets in the country, is happening today from 10 am to 4 pm at the Armory Track and Field Center. Colleges competing at the meet include Columbia, Penn State, UCLA, and more (Columbia University Events).
