Today seems to be a relatively quiet day in the news, however, there are still some significant stories.
Yesterday, a south bound A-train derailed in New York City's subway system. The issue has ignited debate about the outdatedness of the system, which in many cases has not changed equipment in decades. New Yorkers are increasingly becoming frustrated with delay times, and now it seems that safety might also be an issue to contend with.
In Washington, a vote on the Senate Health Care Bill has been postponed until after the July 4th recess. President Trump recently said that he thought they were very near passing the bill, but there are still several holdouts in the Republican camp.
Debate in the aftermath of the deadly Grenfell Tower fire has escalated--there is argument over the effects of the mass privatization of buildings and safety regulations. It was recently found that one of the nearby buildings that was evacuated would not have passed building codes in New York City.
In the aftermath of a mass cyber attack, officials are trying to figure out the best way to move forwards. The attack involved people hacking and subsequently threatening to delete victims' personal data unless the victims paid.
And in science, there is a new initiative to beam communications into space. Are we alone in the universe? And if we're not, what next?
Have a lovely day, everyone!
