Bus drivers, allies make a case for putting D.C. Circulator under city control
"Officials with the Washington Interfaith Network, which has been advocating against privatization of transit services, says outsourcing public transit has disproportionately affected people of color, as about 90 percent of transit workers in the region are black."

Bus drivers, allies make a case for putting D.C. Circulator under city control
"Outsourcing public transit isn’t new in the region, but it is becoming a norm. Metro took over privately run bus operations in 1973, following a period plagued by scandals in the industry, including a 57-day labor strike during the streetcar years in 1955, and illegal fare increases in the 1960s and early ’70s."

Lord Katsuki Yuuri has taken apart his extravagant mask to feed his people, but now that it's time for the traditional royal Masquerade, he has to go to the palace, extravagant mask or no.
He just didn't expect to be asked to dance by so many tall, broad shouldered men, each with a different mask on.//

Ahhh soo good!

12 Things Everyone Should Understand About Tech – Humane Tech – Medium
Technology isn’t an industry, it’s a method of transforming the culture and economics of existing systems and institutions. That can be a little bit hard to understand if we only judge tech as a set of consumer products that we purchase.

Nigeria’s stressed-out middle-class is trying to leave in droves and the destination is Canada | Yomi Kazeem | Quartz Africa
..To offset the effects of its aging population—in 2016, seniors outnumbered children—Canada started an Express Entry program for skilled workers in 2015 to boost its labour force. Successful applicants receive the holy grail of migration: a permanent residence permit. Applicants are judged based on several factors including age (those between 21 and 35 stand the best chance), education level, language proficiency and work experience to determine their eligibility for the program. The entire process typically takes at least six months and it has quickly become popular among middle-class Nigerians: the number of Nigerians admitted into Canada through Express Entry between 2015 and 2016 increased tenfold—2017 data will likely show a much higher spike. With the program open year round and no cap on the number of candidates that can apply, that trend will likely continue. Canada hopes to admit 75,000 skilled migrants through Express Entry this year and 85,000 by 2020. In the first two years of the program, it already admitted over 43,000 applicants and their families.

But not everyone takes the legal route.Nigerians with visitor visas to the United States have increasingly walked across the Canadian border in upstate New York into Quebec to claim asylum. The route accounted for 40% of Canada’s total asylum claimants in 2017 and in the first three months of 2018, more than half of the 5,000 asylum claimants who crossed the border were Nigerians. That’s set to be a marked increase on last year when a total of 5,575 Nigerians sought asylum in Canada—the second largest group by nationality.

[Just a great article chronicling our present moment, and what will be a significant blip on the radar in years to come as we assess the evolution of the Nigerian Diaspora]
