"The crashing financial markets will damage the huge investments needed to create a cleaner and safer environment and will dent the nation’s fast-growing green economy, one economic sector where the UK could lead."
From the ‘red-tape’ slashing desires of the Brexiters to the judgment of green professionals, all indications are for weaker environmental protections

"Within hours of Britons voting to leave the European Union, politicians in Scotland, Ireland and Spain raced on Friday to argue that the historic move bolstered claims over long-disputed parts of British territory."

"The bar is an important landmark, but it wasn’t the only place where LGBT people fought for equality, nor the first time homophobia was challenged. Here are four other U.S. sites that tell of the struggle for LGBT rights."
Now that the Stonewall Inn is the United States' first national monument to LGBT rights, we look at how the community fought against raids, harassment, and discriminatory laws.

"At over a decade old, Dosug serves as Russia's biggest catalog of sex workers. Its existence means buying anything from a massage to sex is nearly as easy as ordering up a taxi on your phone. Dosug's map of nearby available prostitutes looks an awful lot like Uber's map of available drivers."
Every business sells a product. Dosug's is sex work 2.0.

New York City's Stonewall Inn—the site of 1969's Stonewall riots and birthplace of the modern LGBTQ movement—will be declared a new national monument.
"The designation will create the first official National Park Service unit dedicated to telling the story of LGBT Americans," the White House said in a statement.

Tagline
The Stream is a social media community with its own daily TV show on Al Jazeera English.
Introduction
The Stream is a new phenomenon – a web community with its own daily show on Al Jazeera. The Stream taps into the extraordinary potential of the increasing power of social networks to disseminate news. Individuals have now become an integral part of the news information network through their ability to publish information and share opinions on events as they take place. 

The viral nature of social networks allows for such information to spread and multiply rapidly. While these developments have the potential to generate more heat than light, to a broadcaster like Al Jazeera, they are also a huge opportunity to reach news in places and at levels until now impossible. 

The Stream is a super-aggregator of these online sources, seeking out both untold stories and new, ground level takes on stories in the mainstream.
