Ever wondered during which hours you could get CAVA’d? Look no further!
Happening in the World: Yesterday, a deadly knife attack took place in a basilica in Nice, France. Three people were tragically killed in the attack. Since the attack, Islamaphobic rhetoric has been spread by government officials. This is not a new narrative in France, and Muslims in France are reminding the country to not conflate terrorism with Islam (The New York Times).
Happening in the US: On Thursday, the South was hit by Hurricane Zeta which proved to be incredibly detrimental. Tragically, three people died. Hurricane Zeta’s winds traveled faster than twenty miles per hour and left approximately two million people across Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and North and South Carolina without power. In addition to people losing electricity in their homes, voting sites also lost power, barring people from voting early. (The New York Times).
Happening in NYC: On Thursday, a swinging construction crane sent debris to the ground from 84 stories high. The crane was being used for construction on a midtown apartment, but after the incident, all work on the building has ceased. It is still unclear what happened and the crane’s involvement in causing the damage, but one theory is that as the wind in the city picked up, the lifting ball spun and hit a glass facade, resulting in glass and aluminum being knocked 84 stories to the ground. Thankfully, no one was injured in the event (ABC 7).
