The Boston Globe reports:
Boston high school students are planning to walk out of class en masse on Monday and rally at City Hall to protest President-elect Donald Trump.No word yet on what the public schools teachers (mostly Democrat- Hillary Clinton) will be doing.
The students plan to leave school at 1 p.m., meet at Boston Common, and march on the Massachusetts State House by 3 p.m. At 4 p.m., they will rally at City Hall.
“Donald J. Trump will be the next president of the United States and we have the right to protest and stand together against the inexcusable statements he has made about, and the harmful policies he promises to enact against, immigrants, Muslims, black Americans, the disabled, the LGBTQ+ community and women,” organizers wrote in a description for a Facebook event.

Heat Street reports:
Mic News reports that President Obama is eyeing a post-presidential career in digital media “and is considering launching his own video company.” Mic goes so far as to report that the President privately discussed the matter with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg at the recent APEC summit in Lima.The road to Barack Obama becoming a billionaire is nearing.
As a newly minted ex-President, Obama would presumably be in high demand from media companies hungry for the prestige and imprimatur his name provides. So what are the three most likely places where the future former president could land while he earns some much-needed dough and learns the media business? We’ve got the list:
Wikileaks recently revealed that in 2013, former President Bill Clinton turned down an $8 million, two-year offer to be honorary chairman of the nascent media company that would eventually become Vocativ. Vocativ’s co-founders, the Israeli entrepreneur Mati Kochavi and New York rainmaker Marty Edelman, were flush with Arab cash from their security ventures in Abu Dhabi and wanted to buy a big name.
