USA Soccer Team Does Not Qualify For World Cup For First Time In Three Decades.

For the first time in three decades, the men’s USA soccer team did not qualify for the 2018 World Cup this past week after a 2-1 loss to Trinidad and Tobago.

Blink light show

Over this past weekend one of the largest light shows in the nation took place in downtown Cincinnati. This four day event featured murals, urban landscapes, large scale projections, and interactive art over the span of 20 blocks in downtown Cincinnati from the banks to Findlay market.

The creators of Blink were amazed at the turnout and the number of people that attended. Dan Reynolds described the experience as unbelievable. There was an estimated amount of 1 million people who came out to the show. Sitting buses were packed to the brim with people, shoulder to shoulder. An uber driver stated that over the span of the 16 years he’s been driving he’s never seen so many people downtown before. Blink got people out to explore places that they’ve never seen before and it was an overall celebration for Cincinnati.

The overall theme of all the artwork was togetherness, although it also brought people together downtown. There were people of all backgrounds who came together this weekend. There were a number of different types of artwork, from murals to light shows to interactive works. Blink would literally stop you in your tracks and leave you in awe with what you are looking at.

Not quite a revolution, but definitely an act of defiance, is the recent decision made by Catalonia to separate from Spain. This area of Spain held voting (that has remained unrecognized by the Spanish government) on whether or not Catalonia should break its ties with Spain and become its own independent country.
