News That Matters

Now what you read is not a test, we’re recapping what’s on the street.
And us, QZ, and all these reporters’ pens are gonna try and make you say “Neat!”

Now Grand Canyon’s got canyons, but Yellowstone’s shakin’ stones,
There’s gonna be an earthquake, new research has shown.
Magnitude-7, what, 7, and it’s gonna come quick,
A 7-point quake, if the volcano don’t erupt thick.

Here’s a little story we’ve got to tell, about those little pills you know so well,
Antidepressants started way back in the 70s, for the sads, pain, and anx-i-ety.
Pros have found new receptors to boost our serotonin,
A few brain receptors and they’re gonna hone in,
Testin’ drugs for man, on a small mice clan,
If these trial runs work, they may have a game plan.

We on an all-male tour, with corporate boards in the land,
It takes nearly 40 years for women to earn a chance to command.

Turn on your VR headset to shop Walmart behind closed doors.
Two new patents about to make an entrance, so buckle up.

It was all a dream.
Teachers used to think they could earn esteem,
Helpin’ students in the high school scene.
But the pay’s not enough anymore,
Schools are reporting shortages from LA to Baltimore.
Teachers liked their salaries ‘till the raises stopped,
Inflation hittin’ their bank accounts like a rock.
Way back,
When the times weren’t so jacked, in the 90s
Paychecks were more fat.
Teachers made 2% more, duh-ha, duh-ha,
They’ve had it, man, this is the last straw.

The Best of What We Are Reading

We hosted a Book Club live discussion last night! (ICYMI — Check it out here.)

For the next The Mission Book Club book pick, we will be reading The Courage to Be Disliked: The Japanese Phenomenon That Shows You How to Change Your Life and Achieve Real Happiness by Ichiro Kishimi and Fumitake Koga.

This book considers the ultimate question: Is happiness something you choose for yourself? 🤔

The live discussion will be held Sept 17th at 6pm PT (or 9pm PT). Mark your calendars, cause this is one you definitely won’t want to miss.
