Black snow recently fell in Siberia, thanks to pollution from the many coal factories in the region.
A pall of eerie black snow has covered several towns in the Siberian region of Kuzbass, which is home to 2.6 million people and one of the world’s largest coal fields.
According to the Guardian and the Siberian Times, the snow is tainted with toxic black coal dust that was released into the air from open coal pits and improperly maintained factories in the region. One coal plant official told the local media that a shield meant to prevent coal powder from escaping out of the factory had malfunctioned — however, toxic black snowfall seems to be a regular phenomena in the area and it isn’t necessarily tied to a single source.

School forms in France are set to go gender neutral after the French parliament voted to replace the words ‘mother’ and ‘father’ with ‘Parent 1’ and ‘Parent 2’.
The new terms are being introduced following changes to the country’s education laws passed by President Emmanuel Macron’s majority REM party this week that also make school attendance mandatory for three-year-olds.
The removal of les pères and les mères in official paperwork within the education system is being brought in to stop discrimination against same-sex parents, The Times reports, but it does not have the backing of the education minister, Jean-Michel Blanquer.

They get acquitted, though they steal and do other things. It is unfair that those who commit gross crimes can go free…."

In January, she was sentenced to a fine of 4,000 Swedish kroner ($443). She lives on a monthly pension of only 7,000 Swedish kroner ($775).

One digisexual Akihiko Kondo, a 35-year-old school administrator who married a virtual reality singer in Japan, deems himself to be sexual minority facing discrimination. For those who identity as digisexuals, Markie and MacArthur believe they may be resistance akin to the pushback against other sexual minorities such as homo, trans, and bisexuals. Pressuring for human rights protections could be one way in which digisexuals attempt to achieve recognition. The campaign, it seems, has already begun online.
