Bwoglines: Abandoned Australians Edition

Help!!! The sky is opaque!

Happening in the world: Last Sunday marked two weeks since Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a limit of 4,000 arrivals to the nation after concerns of the country’s second coronavirus wave arose. It is estimated that about 100,000 Australians are stranded around the world, with some airline ticket prices starting at $12,000 AUD. (CNN)

Happening in the US: The city of Louisville has reached a $12 million settlement with the family of Breonna Taylor 186 days after her death. Taylor’s mother Tamika Palmer filed the lawsuit in April, claiming use of excessive force and gross negligence on the part of the police. She says this is “only the beginning of getting full justice for Breonna.” (NBC)

Happening in NYC: For the next few days, a white haze caused by the wildfires on the West Coast will cloud the sky in NYC . No need to worry, though, as the smoke will be about 20,000 feet above ground-level and won’t affect air quality. The haze will most likely remain until Friday, when a cold front will push away the smoke. (Gothamist)

Happening in our community: The University Life Events Council and the Columbia University COVID-19 Student Service Corps are hosting a mask making event tonight from 6:30-7:30. Both on-campus and off-campus students can RSVP here.
