Mass Shooting at a Texas Elementary School
A mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas occurred killing 19 children and 2 adults. This is the deadliest school shooting in almost a decade.
The lone gunman is an 18-year-old kid and had posted on social media saying, “I’m going to shoot my grandma.” Posted on Facebook after he shot his grandma. He then proceeded to crash his car, and posted to Facebook “I’m going to shoot up an elementary school.” The gunman had posted these things on social media prior to his actions.
Social media is perceived as a bad thing because it has affected a lot of people’s mental health and people waste their time scrolling on their feeds. We hope that somehow in the future that Mark Zuckerberg could track things like this and help us prevent tragedies such as this. Something has to change whether it’s mental health or gun control, to try and prevent things like this from happening.
Airbnb Parties in St. Louis
Airbnb parties have been running rampant in St. Louis. This is happening all around the state and kids, often teens would book an Airbnb for a night. Once that’s done, the party starts at night, and landlords or homeowners will be the ones to clean up after. Most people can’t stand this and the rave parties can get real loud which will disrupt the entire neighborhood. Lots of teens are considering this because renting an Airbnb is much cheaper than renting a hotel room. In hotels, they would have to deal with security and the lack of space, while an Airbnb can provide all those benefits at a cheaper price.
Job Market Update
The Great Resignation in 2021 led to many people quitting their jobs. Grant Thornton did a survey on about 5,000 employees. 21% of American workers took a new job in 2021, and already, 40% out of that 21% are now looking for new jobs. LinkedIn data show that people having their jobs after being there for less than 12months, rose by 6.5% this year. It is a candidates market, this means that employees are the ones looking for better opportunities to earn more. Employers are the ones having a hard time finding good employees because everyone on the market is just looking at what employers can offer.
Cardinals Livening the Game Again
After Albert’s pitch, Yadier got in and threw some innings after the Cardinals were up 18 and nothing on Sunday. Yadier gave home runs just like Albert did, and it’s getting better for the team. They can even make it better if Wayne got behind the plate closer to the end of the year. It’s good to see the Cardinals blow people’s minds out with these moves. It would make it really fun to watch if they would put people in positions they knew nothing about and see how it goes. Once they start doing that, people will start tuning into baseball more often.
Monkey pox is not like covid-19 where you’re not going to get monkey pox just by going past the person that’s infected with it in the grocery store. This is coming from the CDC official Dr. Jennifer McQuiston explains. It spreads through continuous physical contact with a person who has an active rash.
You can do what you normally do but don’t rub yourself against another person who has any type of rash on their body. Monkey pox got its name in 1958 when two outbreaks of a pox-like disease occurred in colonies of monkeys kept for research.
