Happy Friday! Here are three stories that have caught my attention today:
- MSN Messenger is Dead: some loved it, some hated it, some chose AOL’s AIM over it, but bottom line MSN Messenger was one of those messaging apps willing to take a chance on new services, third party plug-ins (talk about emoji collections), and connectivity - especially for those who had contact outside the United States.
- Slow day at work? Vox is reporting on the benefits of "coffee naps." That is right, drink coffee, take a nap, and BOOM! extra energy. Sounds crazy? Well, it is. But as Vox states:
To understand a coffee nap, you have to understand how caffeine affects you.
- NOM NOM NOM: Want to eat Taco Bell for the rest of your life? The fast food company is offering residents of certain cities a chance to win $10,000 gift cards if they find a SPECIFIC dollar. That is, a dollar with a specific serial number. Be sure to check those wallets!
They range from giving certain categories of undocumented immigrants temporary “parole in place” status to stay in the United States, to essentially legalizing millions more by expanding a 2012 directive issued by Mr. Obama that grants work permits and deportation deferments to young immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children.
Enough with inaction. Given the President’s deportation record, there is only one way to make meaningful impact to our (yet to be fixed) immigration system - it beings with expanding DACA, and continues with the cancellation of 287g/SCOMM.
