The world is complex. Duh, you might think. But we know things are complex when two opposing observations are true at the same time. Case in point: Researchers say global inequality is at its lowest level in nearly 150 years but disparities are only deepening. According to the National Institute of Health, “Disparity implies a difference of some kind, whereas inequity implies unfairness and injustice.” So how can both be true in this world?; The UN releases the latest estimate of how many people worldwide are migrants fleeing war or violence and it’s A LOT; One last Beatles song?; A disgraced former US president was arraigned and is more of a danger to us all than ever; Archeologists make a stunning discovery that (again) upends the age of man on this planet; and Ever wanted to add music to your Instagram notes? You’re in luck. Go beyond the headlines
