What We’re Reading January 5, 2015

We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!

It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do.

You’re welcome.

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Monday January 5, 2015.
