Your Wednesday Briefing

Good evening. Here’s today’s briefing.

  1. British members of Parliament rejected Prime Minister Theresa May‘s negotiated deal, leaving all parties involved in the agreement in a cloud of uncertainty. This also endangers the Prime Minister’s already fragile government, leading many to question if she will hang on to the post until the end of the week.
  2. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York) announced her candidacy for President of the United States on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”. In her announcement, she signaled that healthcare will form a large part of her campaign.
  3. Violent protests in Zimbabwe over fuel costs has resulted in the torching of a government office.
  4. LeBron James, a basketball star that plays for the Los Angeles Lakers, may receive an update on his injury today.
  5. Suffice it to say, the US government shutdown is ongoing, although a bipartisan group of Congressmen are trying to end it without their own parties’ leaderships.
  6. The teacher’s strike in Los Angeles continues, as they strike for increased nurses in schools and better pay, as well as more school supplies.
  7. Democrats have asked President Donald Trump to delay his State of the Union address until the government shutdown is over. They cited security concerns.
  8. Prime Minister Theresa May survived a vote of no confidence even after her Brexit deal was rejected.
  9. A Canadian has received a death sentence in China. This was likened by experts to opening an oil drum and dumping it on an already huge fire. That metaphorical fire was started when Canada imprisoned a Chinese citizen, igniting the situation.

This day is over. This briefing will no longer be updated.
