Happy leap day! For the last day of this slightly longer month, I’ve decided to compile a list of articles that were published this month (or late January). With so many events taking the spotlight in 2020, here are some stories and trends you may have missed.
This article on why donating your clothes might not be the benevolent act you think it is.
This live Vaping Illness Tracker by the New York Times, which provides other data and statistics on the epidemic.
This report on American income inequality, which also provides other data and statistics on wealth distribution.
This article on the silencing effect of the Coronavirus in China.
This article on the contested use of Phonics in education.
This article on young Somali women who were able to step up where their government failed.
This article on a potentially disappointing payout for the national opioids settlement.
This article on a postpartum product commercial that was not aired at the Oscars.
This article on why black families are leaving Chicago by the thousands.
Please leave a comment, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss, comment, or suggest new articles. I’d love to hear from you!
Thank you for reading.
