The Daily Word in The Wage Gap, Long Lost Poetry and Petite Pterosaurs

There's no denying America's economic inequality, but a new census shows that the median middle-class income went up by 5.2% in 2015, due to rising wages and low inflation. Thanks, Obama.

… But don't celebrate just yet. College costs are rising steadily relative to middle-class income, with an increase of a whopping 171% over 40 years. Yeesh.

Here's an idea for all you outdoor adrenaline junkies.

Cute tiny dinosaurs! Gah.

“I really felt connected every time our luminescence collided” and more drug-induced Burning Man missed connections.

The Daily Word in Standing Rock #NoDAPL protests, Hillary Clinton's health, and Syrian ceasefire

By Robin Babb [ Mon Sep 12 2016 10:56 AM ]

Big things have been happening in North Dakota. "Last week, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota emerged as climate change heroes when, with little political clout or media spotlight, they halted construction of the $3.7 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline." The proposed pipeline violated Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, as it would cross Sioux land and any potential spills would contaminate the tribe's drinking water. Read Mark Sundeen's excellent report from the camp.

Former British Prime Minister David Cameron announced that he's stepping down from his seat in parliament today, citing conflict of interest. This news comes three months after he resigned as PM of the country, after his failed campaign to keep Britain in the European Union. His successor as PM, Theresa May, is overseeing the process of Brexit. Cameron's resignation is effective immediately.

After a video hit the internet of Hillary Clinton appearing to stumble -- and possibly faint -- after a 9/11 memorial ceremony on Sunday, pundits have been quick to latch onto claims of the failing health of the Democratic presidential nominee. Several hours after the incident, Clinton's physician released a note saying that she'd been diagnosed with pneumonia. Some have said that her health could be a serious issue in the election. I think that attending a memorial service in Manhattan summer heat despite having pneumonia speaks volumes about Clinton's tenacity.

China and Russia have launched eight days of joint naval drills in the South China Sea. The sea that the UN said that China had no rights over. So, yeah.

There's a temporary ceasefire in effect in Syria, due to a deal brokered by the US and Russia. The ceasefire will ensure that Syrian government forces will stop airstrikes on civilian neighborhoods in an attempt to flush out rebel forces. This time is also being used for much-needed humanitarian aid to be delivered to besieged areas like Aleppo.

There are ongoing concerns about lead contamination in Pittsburgh's tap water.
