Good morning! Here’s what you missed over the weekend:
The Lead Story: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced last night on CBS’s 60 Minutes that the company was experimenting with same-day delivery by drone. Ideally, according to Bezos, the service would deliver products under 5lbs to consumers within 10 miles of one of the company’s distribution centers. If you live near one of these blue or red dots, you could theoretically receive an Amazon package by drone if the service existed today. FYI, the closest distribution center (they’re actually called “fulfillment centers,” oddly) to Kenyon is in Cincinnati, so we’re out of luck for now. Oh, and the FAA hasn’t approved drones for commercial use yet.
Kenyon received 232 ED I applications this year, an increase of 17% from 2012-2013.
Actor Paul Walker of the Fast and Furious movies died on Sunday in a single-car accident. Walker was 40.
Hopefully you’re able to map out more of Europe than these Americans. If not, well it’s a big continent.
This just in: Healthcare.gov is working smoothly? Surely this must be a mistake.
Jennifer Lawrence won the box office Thanksgiving weekend in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, raking in a new record of $110 million.
The Long Read: The Guardian pulls back the curtain on Amazon’s massive product warehouses and the seasonal employees who operate them.
The Weather: Dress for rain and snow throughout the week, especially on Friday. Temperatures will peak at 56 Wednesday but drop to a high of 32 by Friday. The weekend looks to be cool (below freezing) and cloudy.
