  • Study: Teens get the news from YouTubers and not news outlets

    Given the current climate of fake news and continuous updates about the end of the world as we know it, more people are opting to live in their own bubble and ignore the news completely. But more worryingly, a recent study by SurveyMonkey and Common Sense Media, found that teens would rather keep up with current events via YouTubers, and not verified news agencies.

  • The United States of Guns

    Like many of you, I read the news of a single person killing at least 20 people in El Paso, Texas yesterday and another person killing at least 9 people In Dayton, Ohio early this morning. While these are outrageous and horrifying events, they aren’t surprising or shocking in any way in a country where more than 33,000 people die from gun violence each year. America is a stuck in a Groundhog Day loop of gun violence. We’ll keep waking up, stuck in the same reality of oppression, carnage, and...
