Last Week on Inquisitr (4.3-4.10.16)

Last week, I published these articles on inquisitr:

Monday, 4.4.16 There was a major data leak that is still being investigated a week later.  Rich business owners, heads of state and country leaders’ names are on documents linking offshore bank accounts to possible money laundering and tax evasion.  The fallout is yet to be seen…
#PanamaPapers #Gunnlaugsson #moneylaundering #Panamaleak

Tuesday, 4.5.16  After yet another campus protest based on yet another racially motivated charge, students at #PrincetonUniversity have opened a dialogue.  Campus authorities decided to keep #WoodrowWilson’s name on campus buildings and programs because of his positive contributions to the history of the school and the U.S.; however, there will also be new programs that will directly address the negative aspects of his racial beliefs at the time he was president.

Thursday, 4.7.16  #AmySchumer was upset with #Glamour for using her in their plus size issue, however, they swore it was a celebration issue.  But it opened another much needed conversation about weight and health and #bodyimage in the U.S. and what each one of those things mean.

Friday, 4.8.16  Two male soldiers from #FortHood attacked a female soldier from their unit after catching her with another male soldier.  The injuries they gave her sent her to the hospital and led to the two attackers being arrested.

As always, feel free to click and share.  And comments are always welcome.  Let me know what trending topics you would like to read about!

Be safe.  Be blessed.

Last Week This Happened (3.20-3.26.16)

Articles of interest from last week include:

On Tuesday, March 22, Brussels was hit by a bomb attack authorities believe was in retaliation for an arrest made relating to the Paris attacks a few days earlier.  Several people died and hundreds more were injured.  In the few days since, authorities have arrested more people in connection with this and the Paris attacks.

On Wednesday, March 23, new debris was found that may belong to the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that mysteriously disappeared almost two years ago.

On Thursday, March 24, 48 more bikers have been indicted for their part in the Waco shooting last year.  This brings the total to 106 bikers indicted.

On Friday, March 25, more than 800 hostages were rescued by Nigerian Troops.
