Life caught up and I didn't post my summaries as soon as I would've liked to! Instead, here's a quick look at the articles I wrote during the start of July.

GE CEO and chairman Jeff Immelt made a visit to Dayton, and touted the region's ability to innovate in business. Local residents organized a rally in downtown Dayton following two police shootings of unarmed black men in the U.S.
And of course, national ice cream month was celebrated across the state, and shoppers went wild for the second Amazon Prime Day.

I completed my first Facebook Live session during a march against violence in downtown Dayton. It was both a learning experience and a great success for my first try. Of course, there's always plenty of lessons to learn for the next go-around. The live video reached more than 41,000 people, according to Facebook analytics. It also had hundreds of "likes" and thousands of comments throughout the stream. You can view it here on my professional account, Kara Driscoll DDN.
