- ASCSU is taking the complaints of a RamRide employee seriously, and investigating the department’s budget and operations. Their dedication to investigating this incident, and in a transparent way, is commendable.
- The NCAA Tournament is the greatest sporting event on television.
- At the Kid’s Choice Awards Saturday, Angelina Jolie encouraged kids that being different is good and that it’s OK not to fit in.
- There is no need for ASCSU campaigns to be snitching on each other for petty campaigning mistakes. Can we just have the most competent, qualified candidate win?
- Indiana’s governor signed a law into effect that allows businesses to discriminate against people based on “religious freedom.” We’re all for religious freedom, but this isn’t cool.
- Ford’s new car coming in August forces you to obey the speed limit. No robot should tell me what to do.
Tuesday, March 31
- Tidal, a music streaming service that streams at higher quality than Spotify, was launched today. Jay-Z owns it. Ninety-nine problems, but streaming music ain’t one.
- Four journalists arrested during last summer’s Ferguson protests over the death of Michael Brown filed a federal lawsuit Monday against St. Louis County police for violating the reporters’ civil rights during newsgathering. Shout out to protecting the First Amendment.
- The free app Periscope lets you stream video from your smart phone. This is huge for breaking news coverage.
- Discrepancies between state and federal law regarding marijuana make University regulations difficult and should be resolved.
- Republican potential presidential candidates Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, Rick Santorum and Ben Carson all supported Indiana’s religious freedom bill. Not surprising, but still a bummer.

- Cards Against Humanity is offering a new science-themed extension pack. The profits will benefit young women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math programs.

- Amazon changed their website to make it look like the site from 1999.
- New research suggests Anne Frank probably actually died about a month before we all thought, effectively shaking up the worlds of all of us who have idolized her since we read her diary in middle school. It’s like Pluto all over again.
- People who believe April Fool’s jokes.
- A pizza restaurant in Indiana became the first business to deny service to same-sex couples. So much for that not being the purpose of the law.
