Paris Rally, Low Gas Prices and Golden Globes

By Aura Bogado Jan 12, 2015

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

  • John Kerry says he’ll soon be in Paris, which was the site of a massive rally attended by nearly 4 million people in support of France’s 17 slain police officers, journalists and other civilians.* Attendees included heads of state who coincidentally routinely imprison and kill journalists. 
  • Bionic implants may allow people paralyzed from spinal cord injuries to walk again. 

*An earlier version of this post read that 17 journalists were killed in France; the post has been amended to reflect that 17 people, including journalists, were killed.
