Cartel Leader Beltrán Arrested, Jobless Claims Down, 35K Walruses Ashore in Alaska

By Aura Bogado Oct 02, 2014

Here’s what I’m reading up on this morning: 

  • Jobless claims fell way below Bloomberg’s consensus; this will make for a positive employment report on Friday. 
  • Facebook apologizes to the LGBT for its name policy; in a post, chief product officer Chris Cox (is his legal name Chris or Christopher, though?) explained that the community pretty much made Facebook do better. 
  • Workers paint over a Banksy piece in England, which makes me wonder when graffiti is graffiti and if actual graffiti can ever be sanctioned. 
  • Climate change’s latest victims? 35,000 walruses on an Alaskan shoreline.
