The Charge: May 20, 2014
Wow, so did you think this winter was harsh on NYC? The storm chasing group Basehunters captured this photo in Wyoming of this thunderstorm cloud:Some epic structure by Clareton, WY several hours ago!!! #wywx #weather http://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bn9mLLECQAACueg.jpgMay 20, 2014
Although some fake storm cloud photos made the rounds during Superstorm Sandy (who can forget the Statue of Liberty surrounded by storm clouds?), meteorologists have backed this one up.
Minus 10 because yikes. This weather is no joke. The Charge is now 73%.
It's a sad day for NPR fans. "Tell Me More" is being canceled and 28 positions will be eliminated, the organization announced today. It's the third program geared toward African-Americans to be canceled since 2009. Host Michael Martin will remain at the network, as will executive producer Carline Watson. IT's all part of the network's ongoing budget cuts to eliminate deficits.
Minus 15. There are now nine percent less newsgathering positions at NPR--a cut of seven percent of all employees. What does this even mean for news? The Charge is 58%.
