WHAT'S TRENDING

  • Ahmaud Arbery - You might have seen his face and name all over social media. Ahmaud was shot and killed on Feb 23. A video of the incident went viral this week that clearly shows Ahmaud was shot while on a jog. Before the video, the men who shot him, one a former police officer, claim they thought he was a burglary suspect. Full details here.
     
  • A study by the Pew Research Center found a correlation between students who cannot complete their schoolwork during Coronavirus closures and their parent’s income. Not surprising, but still disheartening nonetheless. Another reminder of how COVID-19 is highlighting and exacerbating inequality.
     
  • In honor of Mother’s Day this weekend, the NYTimes pulled together stories of how motherhood changes women in various ways. Sending all moms virtual hugs ❤

IN BUSINESS / ECONOMY

  • First J.Crew and now Neiman Marcus – the luxury retailer filed for bankruptcy on Thursday. This doesn’t mean they're going out of business, but instead it “enables Neiman Marcus to shed about $4 billion of its existing borrowings… slim its estate as needed and invest in the remaining stores as well as its online platform to better compete with the big fashion houses and e-commerce rivals.”
     
  • ViacomCBS signed a distribution deal to offer 14 channels on YouTube TV (YouTube’s streaming service for $49.99/month). Among the channels are BET, VH1, and The CW. Access to my guilty pleasure, Love and Hip Hop, might be what pushes me to subscribe 😏

IN POLITICS / GOVERNMENT

  • Presidential candidate Joe Biden already announced he’ll choose a female as his running mate. Here’s a list of the top 10 candidates in ranked order (per analysts). Also a great list of the top women in the Democratic party.

JUST FOR YOU

  • Worthwhile read (and short) – first op-ed piece in a series by LeanIn co-founders, Sheryl Sandberg and Rachel Thomas, talks about the “double double shift” women are taking on during Coronavirus.
     
  • Fashion – List of 7 summer fashion trends that are perfect for staying home. Definitely into the Everywhere Clogs and House Dresses.
     
  • Food – we know you love recipe lists (they're the most clicked links on theWKDY) and this one is pretty solid. Here are 20 recipes from hotel chefs around the world. #yumyumyum
