The Ark of Hope was created for a celebration of the Earth Charter held at Shelburne Farms, Vermont on September 9, 2001. The event, for love of Earth, featured keynote speaker Jane Goodall, global peace walker Satish Kumar, musician Paul Winter, and Dr. Steven C. Rockefeller, a member of the Earth Charter Commission. On September 11, 2001 volunteers were cleaning up from the September 9th event when news of the New York and Washington, DC terrorist attacks and tragedies was heard. Sally Linder's immediate, spontaneous response to the horror was to begin walking the Ark of Hope to New York and the United Nations. Joined by Andrea Morgante and Janet Fredericks, they carried the 200-pound chest across the meadows of the farm to Rt. 7 where they were joined by Susan Diehl Dufort.

Amuse yourselves for a few minutes at CNN's expense.
Great achievements in CNN chyrons, 2018 edition. A thread.

UNROLLED THREAD HERE:
The Federal Communications Commission ordered CenturyLink to pay a record $16 million for failing to alert authorities of a preventable programming error that left nearly 11 million people in seven states without access to emergency services for six hours in 2014.
In December 2018, CenturyLink attracted criticism after employing DNS hijacking to display an advertisement for its security and parental control software to residential subscribers in Utah, with service disrupted to users until they read and acknowledge the advertising...
One of their larger acquisitions was Level 3 - a Tier 1 network, which provided core transport, IP, voice, video, VPN's and content delivery for medium-to-large Internet carriers in North America, Latin America, Europe, and selected cities in Asia. Level 3 was also the largest competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC), one of the world largest backbone networks, and the 3rd largest provider of fiber-optic internet access (based on coverage) in the United States.
Level 3 officially became part of CenturyLink on November 1, 2017.
As part of the merger, work was required to divest of 24 individual fiber optic lines spanning 30 city pairs as required by the US Department of Justice. Additionally, Level 3 was required to divest of metro Ethernet markets in Boise, Tucson, and Albuquerque to satisfy anti-trust requirements. The company complied with the divestiture of those assets.
In July 2013, the NSA was accused of wiretapping large parts of data on the German Internet Exchange Point DE-CIX which was denied by Level 3, and a few months later, was accused of tapping connections between Google and Yahoo data centers.
