Tuesday Movie @ Your Library this week is The Greatest Showman.

Come by the Chatham branch of the Chatham-Kent Public Library Meeting Room today at 2. Everyone is welcome.

Tomorrow is McHappy Day.

Visit any McDonald’s tomorrow and for every Big Mac, Happy Meal or hot McCafé beverage purchased, $1 will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities.

A Canadian tradition founded in 1977, McHappy Day has raised over $56 million for RMHC and communities across the country.

CKMORNINGS will be live Wednesday from McDonald’s on Richmond St., Chatham from 6-10am.

North Korea has been 30 minutes behind South Korea ever since Kim Jong Un created “Pyongyang Time” in 2015. But starting May 5th, North Korea will adjust its clocks to sync with South Korea. It’s a step towards a better relationship between the countries.

North Korea announced in 2015 that it would return to the way that the Korean peninsula kept time before Japanese occupation from 1910 to 1945. Japan changed Korea’s way of keeping time in 1912.

There are a surprisingly high number of cities and countries in the world that are either 15 or 30 minutes away from what most of the world considers “normal.” Ahem Newfoundland, we’re looking at you.

Pinterest is being redesigned to benefit blind users.

Accessibility features are already built into iOS (VoiceOver) and Android (TalkBack), which allow users to get spoken feedback from devices without looking at the screen, but Pinterest wasn’t optimized for that feature. So they went to work.

A couple things they have done to help the visually impaired include: Improved color contrast sensitivity, screen reader support, bolder type and customisable text size, and clearer focus indicators.

Pinterest has made “significant progress” updating the iOS and web versions of the platform, and are “working on bringing these changes to Android soon.”

The oldest known spider in the world has died at 43.

She died a tragic death when she was violently attacked by a wasp in Western Australia. She was a trapdoor spider, known as Number 16 and was part of a decades long study.

Trapdoor spiders may look a bit intimidating but they pose no danger to humans. Their bites are nontoxic to humans and they are usually very timid.

We’re all a little late to the party (funeral?) Number 16 died in May 2017. But the death has just been reported in a science journal released in April.
