⏱Two sides of a coin
Elon is in the news again, big surprise there
¡Hola y Buenos Días! A big shout out to all of our new subscribers, and to the people who shared our newsletter yesterday! ¡Gracias!
0:06- Michigan is officially keeping OSU out of the B1G championship
Welp, that’s not a headline we were expecting to write, but yesterday, due to Covid cases, Michigan cancelled what would’ve been the 117th edition of “The Game”, one of the biggest rivalries in sports. This change keeps OSU, currently ranked #4, out of the B1G championship games as they’ve only played in 5 of the 6 required games to qualify.
0:22-AirPods but take them to the max
Yesterday Apple announced a new pair of headphones called Airpods Max. These over ear headphones will contain all of the same features as their little brothers, the OG Airpods, and Airpod Pros, and boast up to a 20 hour battery life while using the noise cancelling and “spatial audio.” Oh, and they’ll cost a cool $549 as well. That’s the same price as a PS5 in case you were wondering.
0:40-We should just start a daily Elon Musk section at this point
In typical manner Elon made the headlines not once, but twice yesterday. He both announced that he would be moving to Texas (a state that doesn’t have that pesky income tax), and announced that Tesla would be raising a cool $5bn in a share sale. This share sale is the second time in the past three months that Tesla has raised capital, and comes one day after Tesla reached a market cap of more than $600bn.
1:01- One small shot for Margaret Keenan, one big shot for human kind
Yesterday, the first vaccines were given out in the U.K., and Margaret Keenan, aged 91, was the first citizen to receive the shot following an emergency use authorization last week. Matt Hancock, the health secretary, has dubbed the day “V-day”, and Chris Whitty, the U.K.’s chief health advisor said it was a “great day for medical science, and the future.”
1:18- Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond...
The US passed more than 15m total Covid-19 cases yesterday, meaning that slightly less than 1 out of every 22 Americans have had the virus at some point. This news corresponds with the reports that the US is responsible for 22% of the world’s cases and more than 18.4% of total deaths even though it only represents 4.3% of the world’s population.
Have a great rest of your day, and we’ll see you tomorrow bright and early!
