Wednesday’s “What’s Up in the World?” [12.28.2012]

Hello lovely people of Cortina!

I know it’s a busy week for us all but here’s a quick update on things that are happening around our world!

“In a vacant lot valued at $25 million, refugees in Phoenix have become accidental farmers in an unlikely urban field that is part of an ambitious plan to transform unused land.” http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2012/11/26/us/20121127_VACANT.html

“Rebels in eastern DR Congo say they have started withdrawing from territory they have captured from government troops, days after a pullout deal was reached in neighboring Uganda.”

“About 15% of the U.S. population experiences the problematic rhythmic change of the seasons. For these individuals, time itself is a stressor, and winter is often a season of despair.”
