What We Missed: Monday August 12th


I'd listen to Jennifer tell me news about anything!

USL Championship side Orange County SC has signed 14-year-old Francis Jacobs to a multiyear professional contract, the club and the player have told ESPN FC, making him the youngest male player to sign a professional soccer contract in the U.S.

Jacobs, who projects as a central midfielder, signed with OCSC on July 26 at 14 years, four months and 29 days. Freddy Adu was 14 years, five months, and 16 days when he signed with MLS and D.C United in November 2003.

The numbers are mind-boggling: $70,000 per minute, $4 million per hour, $100 million per day.

That’s how quickly the fortune of the Waltons, the clan behind Walmart Inc., has been growing since last year’s Bloomberg ranking of the world’s richest families.

At that rate, their wealth would’ve expanded about $23,000 since you began reading this. A new Walmart associate in the U.S. would’ve made about 6 cents in that time, on the way to an $11 hourly minimum.

The Perseid meteor shower peaks Monday and Tuesday evening. Regarded as one of the best meteor showers of the year, its something space buffs won’t want to miss.

Depending on where you live; however, catching the action live might be a bit difficult. Clouds and storms can make viewing difficult, as can city lights. Perseids are also most active after midnight, which might be a bit late for a lot of folks on a school night.

Just because you can’t see it above you doesn’t mean you won’t be able to catch the meteor shower. A number of services are offering free live stream so you can catch all the action online instead.
