The Daily Word

Meet the women of Standing Rock.

Travelling is fine, I just hate flying so much.

“There's no good music anymore!” Said chumps who listen to the same shit every day.

I keep seeing people post about how there's still time to convince electors to not vote for Donald Trump. It's a nice thought, but it isn't going to work. Maybe.

Here's everything you need to know about diy-ing ultraviolet light.

Seasons Change

Early Voting Edition

So you've probably heard of this crazy thing called early voting... ever tried it? I have. It's totally the best. You get hit with a rush of patriotic power, like, as soon as you walk in because you get to vote almost as soon as you walk in.

Seriously, though, I highly recommend it. The longest I've ever had to wait for early voting was maybe three minutes. Compared to what I saw for the primary election earlier this year—crazy long lines and wait times—and, personally, I expect there will more people this time around.

Early voting is easy. You can literally google, “early voting near me” and polling stations near you will come up on your screen. Go here and they'll even tell you what the wait time currently is! If you're concerned about time, your employer legally has to give you time off to vote.

Voting is important, particularly this election cycle. Please vote. And the sooner, the better. Good luck fam. Early voting ends Nov. 5.

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

The Daily Word

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.

Do humpback whales practice altruism? The whales repeatedly save other species from from becoming an orca's next meal in the wild. Scientists speculate the reason behind this risky and seemingly heroic behavior.

Good luck keeping up with all the Seinfeld references in this book review. And if you think you caught them all, you should probably get the book.

Researchers in Ontario study peat moss samples and determine that the carbon-rich bogs are threatened by climate change, are more susceptible to starting forest fires and have the potential to raise the global concentration of carbon dioxide.

Don't count on using your phone as entertainment in London bookstores. Many are creating old-fashioned and tranquil atmospheres with no Wi-Fi, where shop-goers can peacefully unplug and browse.

Texas reported its first Zika-related death Tuesday morning after a baby dies shortly after birth. The infant's mother was infected with the virus while in Latin America during her pregnancy, where the fetus also contracted the virus.
