  • Double lunar eclipses, also referred to as “blood moons” will fill the sky on May 16th and November 22nd. I’d be sure to try to catch at least one of these because the next lunar eclipse won’t happen until 2025.

  • The suicide hotline is now going to be more accessible as the it is now getting a three digit phone number. Last summer, the Federal Communications Commission voted for all phone companies to support the 988 number that will be available for people to call or text. Phone companies have until July 2022 to implement the change.
  • Apple will be premiering its new Self Service Repair Program. This will allow people to order parts for their phones and repair their IPhone by themselves! All item purchases will come with a repair manual, ensuring the customer knows what they’re doing. This will save customers a lot more money than if they would’ve taken their IPhone to get repaired at a store. However, this will only initially be for Apple’s newest IPhone, the IPhone 12 and IPhone 13.
  • Some of the most beloved TV shows are tying up loose ends and coming to a close this year. With shows such as “This is Us,” “Dead to Me”, “Ozark”, and “Better Call Saul” ending in 2022.
