President Biden addressed the nation on Thursday after signing into law his $1.9 trillion relief package. He spoke more about pandemic life than economic relief.

The President spoke of war-like efforts to vaccinate the country and claimed that he will meet his goal of 100 million shots in 100 days in office early, by his 60th day in office to be exact.

He is also directing all states, tribes and territories to make all adults over the age of 18 eligible for the vaccine by May 1. He says that the administration is ramping up to 2 million shots per day.

Amazon’s Book Report

Amazon has removed a book from its site that argued that homosexuality and transgendered identity is a mental illness. The book is three years old and became an issue because Republican Senators had demanded an explanation as to why the book was no longer for sale.

The book is called “When Harry Became Sally” and it was written by a conservative scholar named Ryan T. Anderson. The author and publisher still defend this position saying that “Everyone agrees that gender dysphoria is a serious condition that causes great suffering.”

But everyone does not agree with that. Amazon’s letter in response to this inquiry said this: “As to your specific question about ‘When Harry Became Sally,’ we have chosen not to sell books that frame LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness….[and] we reserve the right not to sell certain content. All retailers make decisions about what selection they choose to offer, as do we.” 

News By The Numbers

$51 million. That is how much the mansion of Jeffrey Epstein sold for in New York City. Proceeds of the sale will go towards his victims.

2. That is how many lions were euthanized after they killed a hunter who was tracking cheetahs in South Africa. The man was tracking for a wealthy tourist hunting group when the lions pounced on him. Maybe these luxury hunts shouldn’t be allowed any more??

$19.5 million. You can own your own private island in the Bahamas for this price! It is 730 acres of paradise, accessible by yacht. Yacht not included. 

Songbirds of Our Generation

If you live in California, you should bring in your bird feeder and birdbath this spring. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife says that the feeders are contributing to a bad salmonella outbreak in songbirds and this could have a devastating effect on the ecosystem.

Bird rescue centers have reportedly been “inundated with calls” from residents in California and Nevada regarding sick and dead birds. Once the birds share this infection, they die within 24 hours. Officials are asking residents not to put out any feeders or baths until at least late April when the birds will migrate north to breed. 

Rainforest Destruction

Nearly two-thirds of the planet’s rainforests have been degraded or destroyed, according to shocking data from Rainforest Foundation Norway, a nonprofit environmental group.

More than half of this damage has been done since 2002 in the Amazon in an area larger than the entire country of France. Specifically, 34% of this land was wiped out for farm land and 30% was degraded for farm use and left vulnerable to fire and future destruction.

This destruction persists at the rate of about one football field worth of destruction every 6 seconds. Brazil is the biggest offender of rainforest destruction, followed by Southeast Asia, particularly Indonesia, and then Costa Rica. 

Netflix and Chill credit: giphy

Netflix is on to you sharing your account with other people. The company has never really cracked down on this but it looks like they are about to.

Some users have received the following message: “If you don’t live with the owner of this account, you need your own account to keep watching.”

If Netflix were to really crack down on this, it could effect a lot of people. One firm estimates that 33% of Netflix users share their subscription with other people. As the company now faces stiff competition from Disney+, and Paramount+, they may need to stop being so cool about this.
