Here’s what I’m reading up on this morning:
- The captain who abandoned his sinking ferry in South Korea is sentenced to 36 years in prison.
- Obama <3 Putin at the Asia-Pacific Summit in China. Meanwhile, "recently-single, rifle-shooting, shirtless horseback riding" Putin puts a shawl around China’s First Lady only to see the gesture censored in China.
- Here’s part of the story about why Obama thinks the Internet should be reclassified as a utility; and here’s where you can get your net neutrality T-shirts (there’s a different one each month for the next five months!).
- As Ferguson braces for a possible non-indictment of Darren Wilson in connection to the killing of Michael Brown, St. Louis police spend $100,000 on riot gear–while residents stock up on guns.
- It’s Veteran’s Day–and if you’re vet, you can stock up on free ice cream, pizza and more. Who knows? Maybe basic health care for returning vets is next.
- Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano’s lava continues to flow and destroys its first home.
- What’s mayo if it doesn’t contain eggs? According to a lawsuit filed by multinational food giant Unilever, it’s not mayo.
- Instragram will finally let you edit your captions.
- This is what happens when you don’t understand the Twitter: In a now deleted tweet, Bill Cosby encouraged users to, "Go ahead. Meme me! #CosbyMeme." It didn’t turn out that well for him.
