Jason Allard combines filmmaking with exploring abandoned places to tell the stories of Rhode Island's past forgotten icons in his YouTube series. 

 

He will be at the Woonsocket Harris Public Library on Friday June 28th 4-4:45pm to talk about his hobby and work as a web series creator. If you liked the documentary on the Longley Building we recently featured you will like this program.

VP Kamala Harris reportedly told major Democratic donors "we are going to win the election." The Times says Harris spoke briefly about Biden, then pivoted to attacks on Donald Trump. Earlier today, Biden said he looked forward to campaigning next week after he recovers from COVID.       A major I-T outage is doing a lot of damage around the globe. Airlines, hospitals, banks, shops are struggling to get back online. Microsoft says it's working with companies to get them back online. Meanwhile, a sea of stranded travelers are stuck in airports across the U.S. as airlines struggle with their systems.       Former President Trump will hold his first joint campaign rally with Vice Presidential candidate JD Vance on Saturday. The indoor event will be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a week after Trump was shot in an assassination attempt at a rally. Trump formally accepted his party's presidential nomination on Thursday at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee.       The director of the Secret Service will face Congress on Monday. Director Kimberly Cheatle will testify before lawmakers for the first time since the assassination attempt on former President Trump at his Pennsylvania rally. She will no doubt be grilled about reported failures by her agency at the event. Cheadle has refused calls to resign.        The lights are still coming back on in the Houston area after Hurricane Beryl made landfall on July 8th. The number of residents still without power has shrunk, but it's still in the thousands. As of last check, at least six thousand customers were still waiting for service to be restored. CenterPoint Energy says it expects all customers should have power back by end of day.        Prime Day 2024 was one for the record books. Adobe Analytics estimates consumers spent 14-point-two billion dollars over the course of the two-day Amazon Prime sales event. That's up eleven-percent from 2023.
