Happy Friday, everyone. Lots to cover this week with everything from 2015 Emmy nominations to new birth control laws to Pluto finally getting its close-up. Let’s get started:
Greetings, Unicorns. This week we have an update on the Freddie Gray case, SCOTUS decisions, and the Confederate Flag on its way out from public display. This and more, so let’s get started:
Happy Friday, everyone. Is it Springtime where you are yet? I hope so. This week’s newsy roundup has a lot of political stories, but we’ll end with good news. Let’s get started:
Happy Friday, everyone! In addition to all the sciencin’ and entertainment news, we have some politics-related stories to cover, so let’s get started:
President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday had its fair share of highlights, and we’ve also got updates on the situation in Yemen, a found Mars lander, and much more. It’s time for Friday News Bites…
Happy Friday, ladyblogland! This week we’ll talk about two new campaigns to bring feminism to the masses, a truly absurd amount of terribleness, and a math lesson from John Oliver. (As usual, trigger warnings for just about everything apply.)

Lots of things are happening in the world, but I need to lead with some OHMYGOD Doctor Who News. Bear with me.
Oh dear. There is just so much wrong with the world this week. A little bit of good news, but a lot more that’s positively rage-inducing. At least there’s an awesome Stephen Colbert smackdown! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
