Good morning! Here’s what you missed over the weekend:

The Lead Story: Well, it’s official. After holding a referendum vote over the weekend Crimea has decided to rejoin Russia after becoming part of Ukraine when the Soviet Union collapsed. President Obama called President Putin over the weekend to promise more “costs” (i.e. sanctions), but Russia shows few signs of backing down. With Russian troops stacked along the border of eastern Ukraine, many fear that a mainland invasion is next.

Everything Else:

Here’s the latest on the missing Malaysia Airlines flight. Investigators now suspect the plane may be roughly 1,000 miles west of Perth, Australia.

A 4.4. magnitude earthquake just hit Los Angeles.

Wanna know the odds of picking the perfect NCAA bracket? Here you go. You’re better off playing the lottery.

The ex-leader of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church is on his deathbed.

Democrats won’t know what to do if Hillary Clinton doesn’t run for president in 2016.

Tinder has begun verifying celebrity accounts. But what about Kenyon Celebrities?

The Long Read: This journalist chronicles a month-long trip he took aboard a container ship (Ed: sounds fun)

The Weather: It may have just been spring break, but don’t tell Ohio that. Expect highs in the 40s and 50s throughout the week with lows around the freezing point. It will almost definitely rain on Wednesday and Saturday so dress accordingly.
