Good Morning, it’s Thursday, 1 February 2018  and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.
Welcome to February (Congrats…you made it through January!)
The Nightshift is moving to a more streamlined format to accommodate a slate of new  Media Bunker  projects.
The Potomac Drama: The highly contentions “memo” produced by Congressman Devin Nunes could be released as early as today. The FBI says the “memo” contains classified information and its release would be reckless.
Xerox is done. The company that became a verb for it’s copier machines and a technological powerhouse (they invented the graphic-based computer user interface that is used in modern computer operating systems for Apple and Microsoft) has “combined operations” with Fuji holdings of Japan.
A train carrying Republican congressmen to a retreat crashed into a truck while en route yesterday, killing one person in the truck.
The entire board of the U.S. Gymnastics program has resigned, more fallout from the scandal surrounding team doctor Larry Nasser.
The Daily Grope: Model Kate Upton has accused Paul Marciano, the creative director and founder of the Guess fashion line, of sexually harassing women.
Today is National Get Up Day, a day to remind us of how important perseverance is in life and sport.  And, if you live in Texas, it’s National Texas Day. Celebrate with your boots on.

Please check out the CNN “text news” site, which is much faster than their full multi-media site. It’s below at the end of the links.
A new link to the Boston Globe newspaper has been added. We’ve also added a link to The Local, an English language newspaper in Norway.
Also, we’ve added tech site Ars Technia to The Nightshift. To reflect the growing impact of technology in our life, we will be adding more technology centric sites in the future.
