Happening in the World: Luis Rubiales has resigned as head of the Spanish soccer federation after kissing a member of the Spanish women’s soccer team without her consent following the World Cup final. After the clip went viral, many viewers denounced his behavior and called for some kind of action. This escalated as the soccer federation called for his resignation, female soccer players asserting they would not play with him in charge, and FIFA suspended Rubiales for 90 days. After all of this, Rubiales announced his resignation during an interview with Piers Morgan yesterday afternoon.  (NYT)

Happening in the US: At the Abbey of Our Lady of Ephesus in Gower, Missouri, nuns are reporting that Sister Wilhemina Lancestor’s corpse has not decomposed despite four years passing since her death. The state of her body has been signaled as “incorruptible,” a sign in Catholicism that a figure may be a saint. Many are taking note as Sister Wilhemina would be the first African American, and the first American outright, to be incorruptible. The abbey has seen many visitors hoping to see Sister Wilhemina’s body, however, there is some controversy about the coopting of the event in conservative Catholic circles. (NYT)

Happening in NYC: Due to the increase in migrant and asylum seeker arrivals in New York City, Mayor Eric Adams announced he will move some families with children to congregate homeless shelters. However, this would violate New York City’s right to shelter—a law that bans the city government from putting families with children in congregate housing. Mayor Adams continues to search for means to respond to the 111,500 people in New York City’s homeless shelter system—a number expected to increase by over 10,000 in each of the upcoming months.
