The Monday Catchup

The Lords and Ladies killed it at the DIII Championship Meet.

The Lords and Ladies killed it at the DIII Championship Meet.

Good morning! Here’s what you missed while you were at Deb Ball:

The Lead Story: This week’s lead story belongs to our swim team, who spent the weekend at Division III Nationals in Indianapolis. Our Lords and Ladies performed valiantly in the pool, with the men edging out rival Denison by eight points to lock in first place. Our ladies finished in second place behind Emory University to take the runner-up spot. In diving, Maria Zarka ’16 won her second national title in the three meter board. Congratulations all around!

Everything Else:

The State of Ohio could legalize medical marijuana sometime this year. Here’s how it could happen.

Is this The Worst March Madness Bracket Ever? You decide.

Ever been jealous of a celebrity Instagram? Well, it was probably photoshopped, so don’t be.

The Guardian seems to think Russia is poised to invade eastern Ukraine, having annexed Crimea.

Turkey shot down a Syrian jet they claimed was in Turkish airspace, despite being warned.

The NSA hacked into the servers of Chinese telecom giant Huawei, according to The New York Times. They must have gotten bored monitoring Americans.

The Long Read: It has been over twenty years since the Soviet Union collapsed, but many fear Russia is returning to its old ways.

The Weather: Spring has sprung, but Ohio hasn’t gotten the message yet. Expect snow tomorrow and highs in the mid 30s until Thursday, when temperatures will jump up to the low 50s.
