As a little introduction, this is the second of a new weekly post I’ll be sharing every weekend. I plan to include a variety of content including my own creative writing, others’ writing that I find interesting or insightful, news that is relevant to myself or others, and items of note.

Other News:

A tsunami is devastating Indonesia. The Wall Street Journal

Elon Musk is out as Chairman of Tesla, but remains as a powerful CEO. Analysts believe it will actually help bring stability to the electric car maker. The Wall Street Journal

California has mandated that women be included on corporation’s boards, even if it is “likely unconstitutional, a violation of California’s Civil Rights statute, and a violation of the internal affairs doctrine for publicly held corporations.” Though it has the best intentions, it is wrong to go about creating gender diversity by mandating it. Instead, states could implement “incentives, tax breaks or preferential government treatment if [corporations] reach certain diversity thresholds.” The New York Times
