#ThewRap: Things you need to know, July 16, 2018

Hello! Here are the stories you shouldn't miss this Monday










Dear Rapplers,

This week's #AnimatED editorial talks about the shifting political climate, specifically the drop in the president's satisfaction ratings and what that means for the administration's programs, the charter change proposal, the bid for federalism, and the midterm elections.

As we monitor which way the winds are blowing in the public opinion space, we're also monitoring the weather closely.

Tropical Depression Henry is expected to pass in the vicinity of the Babuyan Group of Islands this Monday evening. Please mind updates on this weather disturbance through our #WeatherAlert page.

Preparedness is key so we also encourage you to take part in the annual #MMShakeDrill. The exact date of the drill will not be announced so be ready any time!
