Sarah Grossman, 22, died after being tear-gassed by police in Columbus, Ohio, reports the Dayton Daily News.

Grossman’s body showed no signs of lethal trauma and the only medical condition mentioned in the preliminary records is an allergy to peanuts, the paper reported.

“Again, we encourage anyone who was with her at the protest or on May 29 or 30 before she went to Sycamore to talk to Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office or (Columbus police),” she added.

With these bronze figures weighing around 3,500 to 7,000 pounds, pulling them off their pedestals isn’t an easy task to do […]
If you and your business aren’t keeping up with the times, your customers know it. Google found digitally advanced small businesses made twice the revenue per employee as their counterparts and saw four times the revenue growth. Of course, it’s usually not that most small businesses don’t want to reach out digitally. Most just don’t […]
If you’re looking to launch a new career, you’ll often see us present education course packages that will help you become a web developer or a project manager or a graphic designer.
