We began this week stepping up on climate change by taking a closer look at the history of one of humanity’s most pressing issues. Then, we tuned-in for a special interview with The Carousers, took a slice out of Pi Day, and bugged out over photography.
Ah, pi (Π, π). The delicious 16th-letter of the Greek alphabet and the infamous, endless, irrational mathematical constant – also known as the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, 3.14159.
Mar 14th is the annual observance of the 4000-year old constant, as the date “3/14” are the first three digits of pi, “3.14”. That leaves us with just one question that, unlike the question “how many digits are in pi?” actually has an answer: how does one celebrate Pi Day?
On Tuesday, the House of Representatives introduced a bill to allow DREAMers and other undocumented immigrants who are temporarily protected to apply for citizenship.
Meanwhile, New Jersey legislators announced a bill to legalize recreational cannabis; The UK Parliament voted against the Prime Minister’s proposed Brexit deal again on Tuesday and announced their plan to leave the EU without a deal today; another Boeing 737 crashed, killing all of its passengers; a federal investigation of a nationwide college-entrance scam is underway; anti-semitism runs rampant among students at Newport Harbor High School; and the World Wide Web celebrated its 30th birthday this week.
Climate change is happening all around the globe, right before our very eyes, whether you believe it’s all just a hoax or not. It is the devil’s advocate of natural disasters, as well as unstable and unpredictable weather patterns. Experts are referring to it as one of the greatest threats to humanity, even though we practically put ourselves in this position.
Welcome to week 10. We kicked things off by tuning-into Hazel by Roy Blair on Tuesday. Then, Nimrah taught us how to invest in ourselves, we took a moment to reflect on the highlights from last month, we hiked on through Central Oregon, and Sarah Winton shared her workwear essentials with us.
