Good Morning, it’s Monday, 5 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.
America received a terrific Super Bowl last night. In a game that literally went down to the very last second, the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII, a game that lived up to its name. The underdog Eagles played aggressively on offense and defense and rose to the moment on the biggest stage in professional football. The Eagles “backup” quarterback Nick Foles went head-to-head with Patriot’s quarterback Tom Brady and played well enough to throw four touchdown passes and win the Most Valuable Player award for the game. Expect to see both teams playing again in another Super Bowl.
The Winter Olympics start with the first events on Thursday and the opening ceremonies on Friday. Get prepared with this warmup from The New York Times.
Jon Huntsman Sr. an industrialist (Huntsman Chemicals) who became a billionaire and then turned to philanthropy in founding the Huntsman Cancer Institute, has died at the age of 80. Mr. Huntsman’s son, Jon Huntsman Jr. has been the governor of Utah, ran for President in 2012 (and was perhaps the most qualified and compelling candidate in the race that year) and is currently U.S. Ambassador to Russia. His influence will be felt for generations in both politics and philanthropy.
Today is National Weatherperson’s Day. Say thanks to Dylan and Al and all the people at the Weather Channel, for bringing us the temps and forecasts. For those of you with lots of close friends (or maybe just one) it’s also National Shower With A Friend Day..the way to celebrate that one is self-explanatory.

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.
