Bwoglines: People Need To Chill Out Edition

In the midst of chaos, we can all take these moments to try and chill out and be kind to the people around us. As well as wash your hands and support workers.

Happening in the World: Singapore’s top court recently upheld a law that criminalized gay sex. The law is colonial-era and largely ignored in many cases, but was upheld by the court and seen as not redundant. (New York Times)

Happening in the US: Democrats in the House of Representatives are looking to pass another aid package with payments geared towards individuals and their families rather than businesses. The process is facing opposition after a 2.2 trillion dollar relief bill was passed recently marking the largest emergency aid measure in the history of the US. (CNN)

Happening in NY: A walk out started today with workers from Amazon walking out of warehouses in Staten Island in retaliation for alleged negligence and irresponsible behavior on the part of Amazon. A sick out also began today at Whole Foods, with workers demanding both paid sick leave for those who are unable to come to work as well as double pay for those who can as compensation. (New York Times)

Joshcore Album(s) of the Week: This week I have for you Angel Olson’s first EP “Strange Cacti.” I’ve recently been listening to this short album on repeat. The simple combination of her ethereal voice mixed with an acoustic guitar is quite stunning and perfect for contemplating the world as it stands.
