Hello Calgary Journal Subscribers!
It’s hard to believe that we are already in the third week of July! I hope everyone got a chance to enjoy some of this year’s Stampede festivities — around 1.2 Million people attended, making it one of the most successful events in its history!
Our journalists have been working on some very interesting stories lately — from the Calgary Public Library’s initiative to help self-published authors to the decline in our bird populations, here are some of the stories published in July thus far.
- Why North American bird populations are declining A study led by Dr. Kenneth Rosenberg published in 2019 found that North America has lost a net of 2.9 billion birds since 1970 — here’s why.
- Charging stations are not as scarce as people think, EV owners say Transitioning to electric vehicles (EVs) is perhaps the biggest change the auto industry has ever seen. While this could be overwhelming for a lot of drivers, some are very satisfied with the switch.
- Calgary Public Library helps self-published authors reach more readers Self-published authors often struggle to have their books reach the shelves, but a partnership between the Calgary Public Library and the Indie Author Project is helping writers reach a wider audience.
Below are some more stories from our journalists, in case you missed them!
My colleague Samreen will be taking over the newsletter editor role, so keep an eye out for the next one!
