Neither here nor there

Jair Bolsonaro joins the ranks of rising far-right populists as he is elected president in Brazil, despite – or strangely because of – his vocal distain against gays, minorities and foreigners, women, humanitarians, and perhaps humans all around.

Google employees worldwide conduct a walkout over the company’s mishandling of harassment and discrimination cases and other issues of transparency as news surfaces of a 90 million dollar exit package offered to a senior executive accused of sexual misconduct.

The U.S. Midterm elections are this week; a reminder that American politics more often revolve around cycles of campaigns, rallies, and elections/re-elections than real substantive change. Still hoping to be proven wrong.

Bright Black World / Todd Hido
