Good Morning, it’s Monday, 11 December 2017, and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift, the World’s Daily News Source.
An explosion was set off in New York City’s Port Authority Bus Terminal, the busiest terminal in the U.S. One person was injured–the person who set the bomb off (seems only fair).
The California wildfires continue to grow after a setback in containment. The current firestorm is the 5th largest in the state’s history and is only 10% contained. Another disastrous event for the Golden State.
Demonstrations in the Middle East and all over the world continue in reaction to the declaration by U.S. President Donald Trump that America will recognize Jerusalem as the “capital” of Israel. This issue is not going to go away and it’s not going to moderate any time soon.
Paris sees a major financial opportunity in Britain’s upcoming exit from the European Union and is making overtures to European financial services companies which have headquartered in London and will, presumably, have to move.
The Daily Grope: Celebrity chef Mario Batali has been accused by several women of sexual harassment.

Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz left the Eagles game against the Los Angeles Rams yesterday after he apparently sustained a leg injury. The Eagles won the game 43-35, but Wentz could have suffered a torn ACL, which would put him out of the playoffs and severely diminish the Eagles chances to reach the Super Bowl. In all of sports, it’s hard to be a legend if you get hurt. Staying in the game is always key–one reason why Tom Brady is so amazing.

Brown University has a reputation for being perhaps the sharpest Ivy League school when it comes to moving education forward. Now, Brown has done something unprecedented in the Ivy League: it is going to do away with “financial aid” that has to be paid back and replace that system with a scholarship system that does not require repayment. Congrats to Brown for a courageous and necessary change. An Ivy League education can cost $250,000 for four years. To fund this program, Brown will continue a fund raising effort to raise up to $500,000,000.
