In other news: Derek Gideon gave an insightful update on the status of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Despite having been evicted from Zuccotti Park, protesters continue to express their discontent by setting up tent “art installations” around the city. Things took a turn for the worse on the West Coast, where police at UC Davis pepper sprayed a group of students. These students seem to have been protesting peacefully. Stay tuned for updates as we follow the Occupy protests around the country.
