Lulu & Pop - Ep.03 - AutoTune and Cheap Dates
1. Political: Hundreds of thousands of people descended on Washington D.C. for the Women’s March on Washington, one day after President Donald Trump was sworn into office, marking one of the largest mass protests after an inauguration in recent history. And more than 100 solidarity marches and protests are taking place around the world, including an estimated gathering of 100,000 protestors in London. All told, an estimated 3-4 million people participated in the protests worldwide.
2. Entertainment: Aziz Ansari hosted SNL this week and addressed not only Trump entering office but also talked about racism in our country and the emergence of what he referred to as “the lowercase kkk” ― a group of people who are growing more comfortable with expressing xenophobia. Or what I like to call the casual racist. Ansari also addressed the wave of hate crimes that flooded the nation following Trump’s election and how the entertainment industry amplifies people’s fears about Islam.
3.Environmental: Global temperatures reached a new high in 2016, marking the first time the planet experienced three consecutive years of record warmth, according to a report published this week by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
But you wouldn’t know about the alarming trend from the network public affairs shows that aired Sunday, which are closely watched by and feature top members of the media, administration and Congress. None of the major shows ― NBC’s “Meet the Press,” ABC’s “This Week,” CBS’s “Face the Nation,” CNN’s “State of the Union” or Fox News’ “Fox News Sunday” ― included any discussion about the report or climate change in general.
4. Local: Sexaul assualt suvivor, mother of 3, spearheade Philly’s Women march. She had no previous event planning experience, started the event on facebook and it grew from there.
5. Relationship: As online dating surges in popularity, few millennials have the time, money, or desire to sit with a stranger over a long meal.
