The Morning Gist from Jebujene
UK ministers want to privatize Channel 4, the state-owned, advertising funded broadcaster – David Attenbrough is not happy; on a happier note, the race is on for the next Doctor Who. Wired reports on the explosion in warehousing, and writer Margaret Taylor says your employer should not pay for your commute.
Gal-Dem flipped out over ‘right on’ people accepting OBEs, MBEs etc – and writer, Timeyin Preston Ideh says Nigeria is a successful failed state; his piece is echoed in a piece in The Vanguard by Professor Ben Nwabueze; despite this, the artistic vibe goes on, up and coming artist, IBEJII releases music video “Gonto”, with some sumptuous dance moves and appearance from some of Nollywood’s finest; it’s the second treat of dance we’ve seen this week, Vogue Magazine has also dropped something to celebrate pride month, and because of all that and much more, our poem of note today is Walt Whitman’s ‘I Sing The Body Electric’, which you can read in full on The Poetry Foundation’s site; stay blessed and enjoy the sun. https://youtu.be/kn8IzZMgLHc
