The Monday Catchup

This drone could arrive at your doorstep any day now (not really), so long as you live near an Amazon fulfillment center.

This drone could arrive at your doorstep any day now (not really), so long as you live near an Amazon fulfillment center.

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.

Everything Else:

Kenyon received 232 ED I applications this year, an increase of 17% from 2012-2013.

A Metro-North train derailed in the Bronx early on Sunday, leaving four dead and 60 injured. Some have already suggested that the accident was caused by human error and excessive speed.

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.

  2. Write an essay on what you would need to do and learn in middle school. Read the feedback you obtain and evaluate your hard work one last time, perhaps there is anything it is possible to do to boost it and after that stop, place down your pen close your laptop breathe. http://cort.as/8It8
