The Woman Who Scaled the Statue of Liberty on Wednesday Has Been Identified As Therese Patricia Okoumou.
Okoumou, who was protesting the recent separation of immigrant families, was affiliated with Rise and Resist, a group of activists formed after the 2016 election “committed to opposing, disrupting, and defeating any government act that threatens democracy, equality, and our civil liberties.” The group had hung a flag that read “Abort ICE” earlier that day, but organizer Martin Joseph Quinn told CNN they were not aware of her plans.
“None of us know how she got up there,” Jay W. Walker, an organizer and board member of Rise and Resist, added. Okoumou will possibly be charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct and interfering with government functions.

“Netflix & Chill” Just Got Hella Fancy.
Are YOU willing to pay $16.99/month for Netflix in “Ultra HD”? That’s what the streaming giant is trying to determine with the forthcoming rollout of its trial upgrade. According to Variety, Ultra HD is being tested in two versions.
“One offers four Ultra HD streams, while the existing $13.99 Premium plan would drop from four to two UHD streams,” they explain. “In the second offer, both Premium and Ultra customers would have access to four concurrent Ultra HD streams but only Ultra customers would have access to high dynamic range (HDR) content, which provides more vibrant color reproduction and higher contrast.”
Again, it’s just a trial, so it may turn out that they don’t even end up moving forward with a widespread release. Stay tuned.
