It's Quibi Day: The streaming service with the shortest attention span is joining the streaming wars today. As Vulture aptly summarized, the short-form streaming platform (think: "'quick bites' of entertainment designed to be consumed, snacklike, on your mobile device") is betting that "millions of consumers already overwhelmed with streaming options will pay $5 per month to stream premium, star-studded versions of the short-form content they already get delivered to their phones for free via YouTube and social media."

It's got two subscription tiers: one that's $4.99 per month with “some ads” and one that's $7.99 per month with no ads. Here's what's good on the platform.

Not to be a Debbie Downer but the Great Barrier Reef is bleaching again:

New aerial data... shows example after example of overheating and damage along the reef, a 1,500-mile natural wonder.

Sound Transit has stopped "almost all" of its construction work: A few construction sites will stay open, like the Interstate 90 floating bridge that will connect light rail to the Eastside.

ICYMI: The Seattle band Thunderpussy has finally been granted a U.S. trademark. The United States Patent and Trademark Office accused the name of being too "scandelous" to trademark. But, after five years and two U.S. Supreme Court cases, the band won their federal trademark.

It's Paul Rudd's birthday: He's 51. Do you remember him in 200 Cigarettes? He had mutton chops and humped Courtney Love in a bathroom.

Do you know COBOL? If so, New Jersey governor Phil Murphy would like to chat with you. The state's overloaded unemployment system runs on the old programming language called COBOL and they need a team to help them dissect it. “We have systems that are 40-plus years old,” the governor said, after calling it "COBOLT" (there's no "T"). “There’ll be lots of postmortems, and one of them will be how the heck did we get here?, when we literally needed COBOL programmers.”

The high-rise West Seattle Bridge was closed for its 14th consecutive morning today: The low bridge is "reserved for transit, freight, emergency response, and Harbor Island access," writes West Seattle Blog. Many drivers are ignoring that reservation and police are reportedly pulling over violators.
