In the past two weeks, the coronavirus toll in the U.S. surpassed
100,000 deaths, people around the world protested against the killing of George
Floyd, and more than 400 journalists have had their First Amendment rights
The unjustified deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud
Arbery, sparked a series of protests beginning on May 26 all over the country and
the world. Since that first day, journalists have had their voices and their
rights stripped away as police officers everywhere threaten, arrest, and
physically attack them for covering these protests.
As the pandemic continues, people have been forced to be creative
and develop new ways to get together apart.
In an effort to stay connected and ditch the gloomy COVID
cloud hanging over everyone’s head, Kulshan Brewing Co. has moved its regular
trivia night online.
While veterans of this weekly tradition have the in-person
application down, the transition to online has proved to be somewhat difficult.
“There have been some kinks to work out,” said Whatcom Community
College student and Kulshan trivia host Dylan Albrecht.
Due to the
current pandemic, Whatcom Community College has been forced to slow construction
and potentially postpone its opening of the Phyllis and Charles Self Learning
Commons and Cedar Hall on-campus housing.
