This week in assorted news many exciting and depressing events have happened. Starting out on a happier note, Joe Bidden memes have taken over the internet. There might be a Game of Thrones prequel, which has fans shivering with excitement. On a not so happy note, Antartica is predicted to be ice-less by 2050 and students are signing petitions to make their campuses sanctuaries.
Joe Biden is the Internet’s new favorite person
After a long and unpleasant presidential election we are seeing a bit of humor well deserved. Most of America knows Joe Biden for being Vice President for Obama, but he is getting a new reason for fame. This video shows the relationship between Biden and Obama. They seem like brothers throughout the video and even ending in a quote by Biden saying “We’re lie family now”(Joe Biden).
This post election the two have become an iconic duo thanks to the internet. Biden’s internet personality seems to be that of a loving friend willing to do anything for Obama. While Obama has an internet personality of a father or older brother keeping his younger brother in check. Biden memes are a good comic relief after this election, putting tensions between a partisan divided country at ease.

Good news for all of the Game of Thrones fans. After much let down, season 7 only having eight episodes and releasing much later than it’s typical air-date in June. Also, with the news that the final season, season 8 will only have six episodes, it has been a long time without any good news for fans. But, today it has been revealed that producers are discussing possible spin off for the hit series. One of the more prominent ideas for a spin-off is a prequel. George R.R. Martin has not only written books that have been made into a hit series but he has also created a world. With rich lore from geography, characters, storylines to timelines it it not so far fetched for a prequel to Game of Thrones to be put into production.
Ice-less Earth by 2050
Due to human Carbon Dioxide emissions scientists are predicting our Arctic zones to be ice-less by the year 2050, if we survive that long. As of today we are loosing 50 square meters of ice each year and that number is only increasing as CO2 emissions increase. It is mind-boggling that some of the most powerful people in our government still deny science. Our new president even thinks global warming is a hoax created by the Chinese government and earlier today appointed a climate-change skeptic as the new head of Environmental Protection Agency. Global warming is a very imminent threat to humanity, needed to be recognized and acknowledged by every single person. By ignoring it and focusing on economics our president is dooming the fate of our species.
Sanctuaries in the U.S are popping up in every State
Post-election Trump has indicated that he will uphold when he said that he plans to deport illegal immigrants. In reaction to this many students have signed petitions which Universities have agreed to, creating safe-zones on private University campuses. These campuses are pledging to keep Trump from deporting these people. The theory is that policy officers are not allowed to go onto private campuses and deport someone without a warrant, making it harder for Trump to impose his will.
I have learned a lot throughout this quarter. I never thought that I would be able to hard code my own website but here we are. I have also come to learn a lot about Twitter and the connectivity it provides. Also, learning the business side of Twitter will be a good tool to know in the future as many people looking to hire expect millennial’s to be proficient in social media. Creating the WebApp was the most fun of the quarter, having to come up with the idea and fully flesh out what we wanted t I swearHowo do was awesome.
