Team SSRI,

Week 48.

Happy Monday!

These videos of people and their Zoom filters just never gets old. A livestream of a virtual court proceeding in Texas took an “appawling” turn when a lawyer appeared as a cat on screen. I can’t make this stuff up…

My youngest kiddo let me know it’s National Hippo Day today (sounds official to me), so increase your knowledge about hippos with these 5 facts.

Lots of great events coming up and many that are from SSRI staff and affiliates, so be sure to check out the list.

Best,
Courtney
