Hi Daniel. I'm sorry you're a bad athlete who can't get signed to a team, but that doesn't relate to a company discriminating against perfectly-qualified models. Maybe you should spend some more time informing yourself on the issues, now that you know you're not getting drafted!

Unfortunately, two teenage girls I met (who asked not to be filmed) weren't in the loop. "What's that?" one said. When I explained Brexit a bit, the other replied, "Oh...we're in high school."

I’m walking around Union Square in NYC, asking Americans about Brexit and whether they think it’s going to happen (since their guess is as good as anyone’s at this point!) So many people are on the issue despite our own nation’s never-ending crazy news cycle. (Video thread)
