The week before the NFL Draft is typically filled with excitement as all 32 teams seek to improve their rosters while hundreds of young men anticipate a new future by living their dreams and playing professional football. Yet, the attention this week was centered on the apparent suicide of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. The former star who was convicted of murder in April 2015 was found dead in his cell on Wednesday morning , leaving behind repercussions for the murder victims’ families and bringing up questions of the efficacy of the criminal justice system.
The story of Hernandez begins with off-the-field issues during his time at the University of Florida. While his success on the field helped the Gators win the 2009 BCS National Championship Game and earned him the John Mack...

CME Group, Inc., a financial market company, recently released the names of the winning groups of the 14th annual CME Group Trading Challenge. Carnegie Mellon University’s team placed second, right after Rutgers University, who ended the three year drought of not having an American university team place first in the competition.
The participation in the contest this year had almost 600 teams composed of over 2,300 students coming from 35 countries across the globe. This was the greatest number of participants the competition has ever had. The contest is a four-week electronic trading competition available to teams made up of undergraduate and graduate students. The goal is to provide a chance to gain experience with techniques for trading futures among major asset classes on CQG’s professional trading platform. It is also the intention of the program to educate up and coming financiers.

Booth at Carnegie Mellon University's Carnival is hard to miss; there is always a bustling energy of people interacting with the student organization’s creations. These ambitious projects bring together a variety of groups on campus and, through the frantic setup of booths, show off their capacity for hard work and creativity. This year, in the spirit of the Timehop carnival, the themes for booths seemed to be all over the place. From Road to El Dorado by Kappa Alpha Theta to The Creation by Alpha Epsilon Phi to Scooby Doo: Where’s My Mummy? by Fringe, the seemingly disparate themes were clearly tied together by a strong sense of nostalgia.
Children were running to see the Walt Disney booth by Delta Delta Delta, and — similarly — going with college-aged people, it was easy to sense the nostalgia felt in booths like the ‘90s Cartoons booth by Alpha Phi. Wandering through booths, you could see the love and care these students put into the work just through the details. The hier...

As part of Carnegie Mellon’s Information Networking Institute (INI) celebration of Carnival weekend, Valerie Plame was invited to give a keynote speech on the issues of nuclear proliferation and cybersecurity, two major threats that affect all of us today.
When you meet her, Plame may look like a regular activist for causes that all of us can relate to. But many may also remember her as the subject of the infamous 2003 Plame affair, which ended her twenty-year career as a covert CIA agent.
In her keynote, Plame gave a brief overview of the events leading to her career at the CIA and the subsequent Plame affair. She described herself as “very honored” to have had the opportunity to serve her country by working for the CIA, continuing her family’s legacy of public service. Her expertise was in the issue of nuclear proliferation and the covert cyber-operations relating to it. She described the multifaceted training that she had to undergo, which included surviving in the wilderne...

Holi, the Indian festival of colors, took place this Saturday, April 22, from noon to 3 p.m. on the Mall. Students gathered from around campus dressed in pre-ordered white shirts, to throw color, eat great food, and dance together on a frigid afternoon.
While it was chilly, the energy of the par- ticipants brought a sense of warmth and familiarity to the mall, where laughter and playful shrieks could be heard from as far as Midway.
The theme this year was 24-Kolor Magic, tipping a hat to Bruno Mars’ hit song from last year. The collective event, packed with plenty of play, performances from South Asian groups around campus, and a sense of togetherness, definitely lived up to its name — being nothing short of magical.

Anti-choice Democrats open gateway for rural voters

I’d like to begin this column by stating that I am unequivocally pro-choice. This is an extremely important aspect of the Democratic Party’s platform. Beyond securing in the abstract a woman’s right to control her own body, the right to choose is an essential component of personal liberty and economic justice. Societies are more free, more safe, and more prosperous when women have full reproductive rights. I believe that anti-choice politicians are wrong scientifically, factually, and morally. Not just that, but anti-choice policies have proven time and again to be ineffective, repressive, and usually counter-intuitive. We should all work very hard to educate voters and politicians about the importance of reproductive health care so that one day the right to have an abortion is no longer a controversial or politicized issue.
Now to alienate myself from all my fellow pro-choice readers. This week, Senator Bernie Sanders (I–VT) received some negative attention from Democrats for [en...
