  1. Joe Biden is leading in the Democratic Primary Polls despite not officially announcing his candidacy. Trailing is Bernie Sanders. Both men are nearly 80, older than Donald Trump. This image is far removed from the younger, more diverse Democrats representative of the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. It will be interesting to watch this divide in the Democratic Party leading to the 2020 Presidential Election.

  2. A project that connected eight telescopes around the world captured the first picture of a black hole. Collecting over 5,000 trillion bytes of data over two weeks, the image depicts the black hole, recently named Powehi (Hawaiian for “embellished dark source of unending creation “), from the galaxy M87.

  3. The MLB season is well on its way and unfortunalty for Chicago, neither the White Sox nor the Cubs have played well up to this point. The Sox are 3 and 8 and sit at 4th place in the AL Central while the Cubs have one more win but are in the same position in the NL Central. Following the Bulls and Blackhawks dissapointing seasons, lets hope the Bears can keep any hope alive.
