“Tonight I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people. This is really the key. These are the people we were elected to serve, Said Mr. Trump in the 2018 State of the Union address on Tuesday, January 30, 2018, in the the United States House of Representatives.

The FCC officially voted to repeal Net Neutrality on December 14th, and many people are not thrilled with their decision. However, what people truly perceive about Net Neutrality is not what it actually is. In fact, many people in HF do not even know what it is in general.
Yes, you read that correctly. Northern Austin has gotten snow, and in addition to that odd weather behavior, ice has accompanied it. Obviously, people living in Austin, Texas were not prepared for the event, due to how unlikely it is that they would receive snow at all.

This Sunday, the United State’s busiest airport, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport lost all power during the busiest time of the year. Those at the airport were stuck for several hours. This was reportedly the result of a fire in the underground electrical facility. According to NBC News,”By late Sunday, the airport had canceled 1,173 flights and delayed 207, according to FlightAware.com. Delta Air Lines, which is headquartered in Atlanta, said it was canceling another 300 flights, mostly to Atlanta, on Monday.”

This Tuesday, in the Alabama senate race, Democratic Doug Jones took the win. According to CBS News, “With all counties reporting, the Alabama Secretary of State reported Jones with 49.92 percent of the vote, and Moore with 48.38 percent of the vote.”
It’s unusual for a Democratic senator to win a typical Republican seat, but the loss comes after many sexual assault accusations rose against the Republican Roy Moore, despite the support from President Trump.
Because of the small margin of which Jones won by, Moore failed to concede and that “the vote is so close it’s not over,” as a recount will take place that will account for the military votes. Senior Amanda McDonald says, “He’s being a sore loser, just take the L.”
Donald Trump has already tweeted, “Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win's a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!”
Although the recount will occur, many believe, including secretary of state Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, it is highly unlikely that Moore will win it.
Telegraph and Fox both reported that a new British study concluded that frying fatty foods creates clouds which leads to rain. Which if you think about it, it makes sense, a British study about why it rains so much there. I mean, what else do they have to do over there?
