The News

April 5, 2017

It’s Wednesday, the midpoint of the week. In headline news, the Assad regime in Syria launched one of the deadliest chemical weapons attacks on rebel-held territories in years, resulting in the deaths of 58 people, with countless others injured. In other news, the head of the Federal Reserve in Richmond, Virginia resigned after investigators found that he leaked information about the Fed’s planned bond-buying stimulus to Medley Global Advisors in 2012 while the list of advertisers dropping sponsorship of Bill O’Reilly’s nightly program grew over allegation’s of behavior around female contributors to his show.

As per usual, good luck on the day ahead and thanks for checking out the newsletter.
