Women's pothole bathing protest has succeeded in getting them repaired

In a way to draw attention to an un-repaired road in her neighborhood a Thai model called Palm donned a shower cap and took a 'protest bath' in the potholes that are causing ongoing problems and accidents.
Photos of the event in the Mae Ramat district in Tak province have been widely shared across social media in Thailand and have inspired others to copy her actions to draw attention to the state of their local roads.
A group of grandmothers in Khon Kaen Province, also in north east Thailand, followed suit with a mass bathe-in. They complained that the government hadn't repaired the road for the last 30 years.

But they have now been promised that the road will be repaired after the rainy season. Palm's pothole protest also appears to have made a difference. According to reports the governor of Tak Province ordered the relevant agencies to repair the road without delay. New photos appear to confirm that those repairs are underway.

Two North Carolina college students shot and killed at off-campus party

Two students at North Carolina A&T State University died on Sunday after being shot during a fight at a large party held at an apartment near the school in Greensboro, police said.
Greensboro police said an unknown suspect fired the bullets that struck Alisia Dieudonne, 19, a computer science major from Homewood, Illinois, and Ahmad Campbell, 21, an agriculture and environmental systems major from Kittrell, North Carolina.
Both students were taken to a local hospital, where they died.
No connection has been found between the students and the shooter, who was an uninvited guest at the party, police spokeswoman Susan Danielsen said in an email.
“This incident is extremely disturbing,” university Chancellor Harold Martin said in a statement. “Violence on or near our campus is unacceptable.”
The university, which has more than 10,000 students, held a safety forum and offered counseling services on campus on Sunday. Martin said the slain students were active in campus activities.
