The Daily Word in lapel videos, paranoid Googlers and cricket chips

The Daily Word

It's Wednesday, May 7th,

and Governor Susanna Martinez, tireless crusader against conflicts of interest in government, is holding a high-powered fundraising dinner for her re-election bid at the home of a lobbyist in Maryland,

following a take-over of the last meeting, City Councilors in Albuquerque are taking steps to keep too much democracy from interfering with the next one,

and APD released footage of their most recent shooting they only show the moments after the suspect was already dead, but at least we now know that officers properly handcuffed the corpse.

Meanwhile,

a new study shows that Google users are increasingly worried about the NSA logging their searches and are therefore avoiding the use of "trouble words" like "nuclear facility" and "organized crime,"

a Kickstarter campaign for "cricket chips"-which are exactly what they sound like--met and surpassed its goal,

and physicists smashed a bunch of atoms together and created the 117th known element. They call it "element 117."

Have a great day!
