The We Company (formerly known as WeWork), a massive coworking and office space company, was once the honor of Softbank. Softbank is a Japanese conglomerate that has been making a name for itself via massive investments either directly or from its subsidiary, the Vision Fund. We represented years of work and development and was one of two shining jewels in Softbank’s crown — the other, of course, being Uber. All of the good press and positivity culminated in an eye-popping $47 billion valuation for We that recently fell so fast and hard that their IPO was temporarily pulled.

Felicity Huffman, who plays Lynette in “Desperate Housewives,” was sentenced in early September for her role in the college admissions scam. For those of you that don’t remember, that was when the University of Southern California (and a few other selective schools) vaulted to the front pages of The Wall Street Journal and other newspapers for taking bribes for admissions spots.

The University of Michigan is being sued right now. Thanks, Obama.

Well, the actual story is a bit more complicated, but the gist of it is that a student is currently suing the University, and the court was seeking a deposition of University President Mark Schlissel up until late August. How did this happen? Well, it goes back a few years and it goes beyond Schlissel and the University.

On May 16, the series finale of “The Big Bang Theory” aired. I didn’t have time to catch it, nor would I have had the ability to follow along, as I haven’t properly followed the show since high school. “The Big Bang Theory” — plot aside  was an interesting show. I always sort of saw it as the TV version of President Richard Nixon — no one knew anyone who voted for Nixon yet he won back to back landslides. I dont know many people who advertise the fact they watch “The Big Bang Theory” and yet it ran for over a decade.

When are we adults? It’s something a lot of people disagree about, and there really isn’t one set answer as different freedoms are enabled at different ages.

Today, a number of places suffer from a lack of housing being built. My home, the Bay Area, and my adopted home, Ann Arbor, have seen increases in the demand for affordable housing without a corresponding increase in the supply. What has happened as a result is unsustainable. MLive reports that from 2015 to July 2018, “Ann Arbor has added 50 new affordable housing units.

Everyone’s a disrupter these days. Whether it’s trying to disrupt capitalism or trying to disrupt how the residents of San Francisco consume their overpriced juice, no one seems to be happy with the way things are.

In case you were living under a rock, these past weekends had a number of college basketball games. I could not watch all of them, but the ones I watched were action packed and enjoyable – and they weren’t just enjoyable for those of you who can’t stand Duke.

Whatever happened to predictability? No, seriously — what happened to it? Because there is no universe in which any of us predicted Aunt Becky would be charged with felonies, but life is funny that way. After everyone finished cracking jokes about the developments of the past week, it looked pretty bad for a lot of people and schools (thankfully, not this one. Go Blue).

Right now, many Republicans reflexively oppose any Democratic proposal or idea and the inverse is true as well.
