Recap: Plastic Straws, Cave Rescue & More
- Reddit user garettg has put together a google spreadsheet for the new Marriott/SPG properties. Makes it easier to filter based on multiple rows.
- A number of companies have pledged to get rid of plastic straws. I’m no longer going to give positive press to these companies until they actually get rid of them, making a promise to do something in 2020 is fine but you should be rewarded by your actions and not what you say you’re going to do. Also there is big difference between getting rid of plastic straws entirely and not giving them automatically but still offering them when requested. /rant
- This National French Fry Day, Dunkin’ Donuts is Giving Away Free Donut Fries at Select Locations by Dunkin Donuts. Only 25 participating locations and first 100 people only. July 13th is national fry day (sorry but this month is national bank account bonus month. Get out of here national fry day).
- Cave rescue: Elation as Thai boys and coach freed by divers by BBC News. Honestly can’t believe they were able to get all the boys out and the coach. Sadly Samarn Kunan did die during the rescue operations earlier on, but it’s good to see the out pouring of support for his family and it looks like they will be well looked after by the Thai king. Nice to see some positive news rather than the constant negative stuff we get. The level of trauma involved is still exceptionally high, so I hope the kids and coach and all involved are helped to appropriately deal with it in time.
