London's first capsule hostel - BBC London News

They should have these here in Canada for the homeless people?...

When was the last time you stayed in a youth hostel?  It probably didn’t look like this one – London’s first ‘capsule hostel’.  It’s a dormitory with just enough room for a bed and everything you need inside a self-contained pod. They've been popular in Japan for years – reporter Thomas Magill goes to Borough to see if they'll take off here.

Jimmy Kimmel on School Shooting in Parkland, Florida (+ President Trump's Reaction To Deadly School Shooting In Parkland, Florida...)

We are all reeling after yet another senseless shooting that took place at a high school in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen people lost their lives and more than a dozen are hospitalized. Donald Trump gave a speech addressing the tragic events saying that no child or teacher should be afraid of their lives while at school. Jimmy agrees with Trump but in order to fix this SOMETHING has to be done. We need real laws that keep assault rifles out of the hands of people who are going to shoot our kids. These Congressmen and lobbyists don’t work for the NRA, they work for us. If you want to help go to www.everytown.org and write to your representatives. If they don’t listen, vote them out.
