  1. General Non School Massacre Thread

    I got all my coverage about this attack from The Guardian, which did a decent job, IMO. I think NYT covered it a bit as well, but aside from that, you're right - the initial blast was covered, and nothing else (including Western responses re: the Eiffel Tower going dark and Toronto doing blue and white lights in honour of the victims, and a bunch of famous people like Imaan and Coldplay donating money).

  3. Political Frailty

    I remain continually surprised we don't see something similar for a couple more of the Senate members, given there's like 5 of them (or something similar) that are 80+
  4. Ice Hockey Players

    Duncan Rousseau, player with the Winnipeg Jets during the team's WHL days, has died after a 3 year battle with cancer. Despite his illness, he managed to attend the Heritage Classic game between the Jets and the Oilers in 2016. https://globalnews.ca/news/3811166/former-winnipeg-jet-of-whl-days-loses-battle-with-cancer/

  6. So given Crowdsourced is at 20/50, I think the chance of it hitting the magical 25 (and thus meaning that the 'only the top 25 remaining from last year' rule becomes moot) is pretty decent. Holding out hope that the main list hits it too, but somehow I don't quote see that happening just yet...

  11. Journalists

    Daphne Galiza, a Maltese journalist who was one of the major voices on the Panama Papers scandal, has been killed by a car bomb. She was 53, and was recently described as a 'one-woman Wiki Leaks' by Politico. Her most recent revelations have pointed fingers at the Maltese PM and 2 of his close aids in a corruption scandal, and her death has been called a 'political murder.'

  15. General Non School Massacre Thread

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/15/truck-bomb-mogadishu-kills-people-somalia Somalia, 200+ dead at the moment Edit: Count at 300+, expected to rise as people as still missing. Casualties (injured+dead) at over 500. Apparently the bomb exploded next to a gas tanker (probably not planned as such by the guys who set it off) which resulted in deaths and injuries being far more than just the bomb could have achieved on its own.
