WBCR DAILY HEADLINES 11.17.16

In world news, Russia became the fourth nation in just the past month to permanently leave the International Criminal Court; and a new report says that the Paris climate agreement, which was ratified last year, won’t be as successful as first thought.

In national news, President-Elect Donald Trump publicly begged to differ with news reports saying that his presidential transition isn’t as “smooth” as he thinks it is; and the police officer that fatally shot Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota this past summer has been charged with second-degree manslaughter.

In local news, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo proposed his own ethics reforms, but only after getting caught in his own corruption scandals.

And in sports, a new study says that the internal relationship between doctors and NFL teamsĀ is hurting the health of players everywhere.

*Finally, as an additional sidenote, Brooklyn College, along with all other CUNY schools, will be entirely closed next Thursday, November 24, and Friday, November 25, due to the Thanksgiving recess. Since I normally broadcast on Thursdays this Fall 2016 semester, I’ll be back in two weeks from now, on Thursday, December 1.
