Harvard Today: March 10, 2014

Happy happy Monday!! After what was (hopefully, but probably not) a productive weekend, we hope you are all rested and ready to go for one last week before spring break.

 
The Little Engine that Could said it best--I think I can, I think I can. Definitely won’t be weird if you mutter that under your breath as you try to answer the ridiculous multiple choice questions on your SLS 20 midterm this week. Not weird at all…

IN THE ATMOSPHERE
Tomorrow’s high is a decently warm 44 degrees, with a low of 35. There’s some snow forecasted for the morning, which normally would be upsetting, but anything’s preferable to the weird sludgy mess currently on the ground.

IN THE D-HALLS
Lunch:
Chiang Mai Pork Curry
Sweet and Sour Chicken with Pineapple
Pepper, Tomato, Black Bean, and Monterey Jack Quesadillas

Dinner:
Roast Turkey Breast
Saigon Bamboo Tofu
Vegetarian Penne Bolognese

ON FLYBY
1) Hemenway's Short Stories: Early Morning Duo. "It was very early and there were only two law students in the gym. The undergraduates preferred to come later in the day. The law students came early."

2) Roving Reporter - How Do You Spell Pforzheimer? Harvard students must know, right?!

3) What to Expect on Housing Day. Freshmen, listen up.

4) Jindal Thinks Obama Should Sue Harvard. Governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal, offered a friendly suggestion that Obama should sue Harvard “because I’m not sure what he learned in three years”. Suing HLS, huh? No way that could go badly for you...

IN THE NEWS
1) Men’s Basketball Clinches NCAA Berth with Win Over Yale. The Crimson defeated the Bulldogs with a score of 70-58, winning their their third consecutive Ivy League Title. Get ready for March Madness, Harvard.

2) Latino Students Share Frustration, Look For Common Ground at Town Hall. Students met to discuss their various experiences as Latino students at Harvard and brainstormed solutions and ideas to be implemented this semester.

EVENTS
No home games for the Crimson today, but send support to Men and Women’s Swimming and Diving, competing at the NCAA Diving Qualifier in Blacksburg, Virginia from today until March 12th. Maybe one of them will emerge as Harvard’s very own Tom Daley.

Set 4 of the Norton Lectures on Poetry, featuring famed jazz musician Herbie Hancock, takes place tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. in Sanders Theatre. Tickets are free and available from the box office starting at noon. The lecture will cover innovation and new technologies.
