May 2, 1982) Place of Birth: Springfield, Massachusetts Education: BA in Spanish and History, Amherst College, 2004 (PBK); Masters in Education and Social Change, University of Miami, 2006; Masters in Cultural Sustainability, Goucher College, 2010 Career: High School History Teacher, Teach for America Miami-Dade (2004-2006); Member of the Board of Directors - Young Professionals Seat, Florida Education Association (2005-2006); High School History Teacher, Springfield Central High School (2006-2011); Member of the Board of Directors, Massachusetts Teachers Association (2007-2009); Vice-President, Massachusetts Teachers Association (2009-2010); Member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, 11th Hampden District (2011-2013); Member of the US Senate, Massachusetts (2013-present) Avatar: Jared Golden Kevin Thornton (1986-present) is the current Junior Senator for Massachusetts and the first Senator in a number of years to come from the state's western half. Born in a working-class family in Springfield, Thornton excelled at academics, earning a scholarship to nearby Amherst College. At Amherst, he majored in Spanish and History, writing a dissertation on the role of Latinxs in the history of the labor movement. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa, he moved to Miami for two years, where he taught high school history, studied for a Masters from UMiami, and served as a union leader. Upon the completion of his TfA contract, he chose to move back to Springfield to care for his ailing parents. Taking a job at his alma mater, Springfield Central High School, Thornton continued to teach high school history and be involved in the union. When a local state rep chose to stand down in 2010, those union connections helped Thornton eek out a win over that state rep's son in the primary. And when John Kerry was appointed Secretary of State, those same connections came out in his favor (and an unfortunate health scare for Ed Markey), helping him to defeat District Attorney Gerry Leone and Representative Mike Capuano in the primary. An avowed Socialist, Thornton has found himself, as of late, with a number of allies in Congress, including Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ed Markey, and Ayanna Pressley, and attempts to remind the media that the socialist revolution Bernie started is not just for people of color, despite their constant attempts to paint it as such with "The Squad."

  7. Survivors escape Escape, ship heads into port The BBC can confirm that the Norwegian Escape has been evacuated the ship to lifeboats and helicopters. Still no idea is known of the cause of the accident. At this moment, 10 passengers are unaccounted for on either the RAF Lyme Bay or the USS George H.W. Bush, which were dispatched to pick up the passengers by Prime Minister Blakesley and President Obama. The US Navy and the Royal Navy have begun the process of bringing the Norwegian Escape into port in Bermuda.
  8. Obama and Blakesley release joint statement on Norwegian Escape disaster Earlier today we received notification of an explosion onboard the Norwegian Escape in the vicinity of Bermuda while underway from Southampton to Miami. Our most recent communications with the vessel indicate that the crew remains in control and that the vessel has halted in order to commence evacuation procedures in line with established protocol. Based on proximity, the United States dispatched naval vessels to the region in support of rescue operations. The United States task force will be joined by the RAF Lyme Bay, which is currently underway from Bermuda. The exact cause of this explosion has yet to be determined and will be the subject of a thorough investigation upon the ship reaching harbour. However, we are treating this as a matter of the utmost seriousness. There will be answers. In the meantime, we will be enhancing security and screening of passengers of vessels leaving British and American ports until we determine the cause of this explosion. Until such a report can be completed, our priority is absolutely the rescue of those onboard the Norwegian Escape and ensuring the security of our people. They, of course, remain in our prayers and they will soon be safely in the care of our men and women in service to our nation.
  9. Norwegian Cruise Lines confirms distress call In an urgent statement released on all social media channels and to major news organizations, Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) confirmed that the Norwegian Escape cruise ship sounded a distress call and began the evacuation of the ship.
  10. BREAKING: Distress call sounded on trans-Atlantic crossing The BBC has learned that a distress call has been sounded in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean from the Norwegian Escape cruise ship. The ship, the newest in the Norwegian Cruise Lines' fleet, and one of the largest in the world is currently making her maiden voyage from Southampton to Miami and is around 1000 nautical miles from Miami, slightly away from Bermuda.
