Last Monday night in Houston, Texas, University of North Carolina (UNC) and Villanova University put on a show while battling for the NCAA championship. In classic style, the Villanova Wildcats came away with the victory over the opposing Tar Heels in an end-to-end effort.
Villanova’s 77–74 win gives them their second national championship in program history, and their first since a 1985 win over Georgetown. It also ends a six-tournament streak of Villanova not making it through the second round.
Throughout the tournament run, the Wildcats looked dominant, taking huge wins over top opponents on their climb up the bracket. The Wildcats had an especially notable win over the top seeded Kansas Jayhawks in the Elite Eight, beating out a favorite on the way to showing which team was the real team to beat.
UNC returns empty handed, with a concern about potential NCAA sanctions for academic fraud. With potential sanctions looming, UNC came up a bit short of getting a national ch...

The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) is no stranger to scandals, but the Panama Papers scandal detailing corruption among some of the wealthiest leaders and corporations has brought further scrutiny to the already tarnished organization.
On May 27, 2015, a crackdown began as 14 FIFA officials and corporate executives were arrested in Zurich based on indictments from the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Among the charges, prosecutors alleged that at least one vote for the hosts of the 2010 FIFA World Cup had been sold to the highest bidder: in this case, prosecutors alleged that Jack Warner, a committee member from Trinidad and Tobago, was offered $1 million from Morroco's bid committee before he accepted a $10 million payout from South Africa, the eventual host of the World Cup.

Last Sunday, April 3, a trail derailment in Philadelphia killed two construction workers and injured thirty-five people. Just a month ago, a train derailment in Kansas injured thirty-two. In 2015, another Philadelphia derailment killed eight and injured over two hundred, the deadliest train accident in the region in nearly thirty years.
Let’s face it: America has a transportation infrastructure problem, and it’s getting costly and dangerous.
Once known for our innovative, state-of-the-art highways and railways, our country now lags behind much of the rest of the industrialized world when it comes to public investments in transportation. We’re losing money, and lives, because we lack the collective will to tackle our infrastructure head-on with meani...

With the primary season drawing to a close, establishment Republicans are pulling out all the stops to prevent Donald Trump from claiming the Republican nomination. Senator Ted Cruz (R–TX) and Ohio Governor John Kasich continue to campaign in the hopes of forcing a brokered convention: their only hope of capturing the nomination.
On Tuesday, Wisconsin Republicans turned out in what was seen as the point of no return if Trump managed to win the day. Instead, Cruz’s 13.1 percentage point margin of victory transformed the narrative into the latest obstacle to Trump taking command of the Republican Party. Cruz considered the night “a turning point ... [and] a rallying cry” for the hardworking people in America. Cruz earned 36 delegates to reach 517 total delegates. The six delegates Trump obtained increases his total to 743. Trump would need to secure 60 percent of the remaining delegates to win the nomination outright, and Cruz would need 87 percent of them to achieve the same feat....

The Big Short
Saturday, April 16
8 p.m.
Director: Adam McKay
Cast: Ryan Gosling (Jared Vennett), Rudy Eisenzopf (Lewis Ranieri), Christian Bale (Michael Burry)
Rotten Tomatoes: 88 percent
The Big Short tells the story of the 2008 financial crisis from the point of view of eccentric hedge fund manager Michael Burry, played by Christian Bale. Picking up on the instability of the housing market, based on the high risk and low return subprime loans being given out, Burry devises an audacious scheme to profit from the impending collapse. Using Burry as a subject, The Big Short provides a deep look into the subprime mortgage crisis and the collapse of 2008. In the process, The Big Short does a spectacular job of informing the viewer about the dangerous economics that led to the crisis, while painting a dirty, if somewhat caricatured, picture of Wall Street greed.

As the end of the semester approaches (and no, I do not want to think about that), I get more and more attached to Madrid. The more I travel, the happier I am to come back to my “home base” in Spain’s capital. I come back to Madrid exhausted and happy to be back in “my” bed. As much fun as I’ve had in the U.K. or Hungary or Morocco, it feels good to be navigating a familiar metro system and to know which grocery stores have what I need. That’s what I’ve liked about living in new places this year — I get to know a city, not just visit it.
Since January of 2015, I’ve lived in a new place every five months; I’ve gotten pretty good at packing and unpacking. When I finished my sophomore spring, I was nervous and excited to start a series of new experiences; now it’s been a year since I finished my last semester in Pittsburgh. Over the summer, I lived with other interns in Virginia. Last fall, I took classes and worked as an intern in Washington, D.C. This semester, I feel lucky to be ...

The Carnegie Mellon men’s tennis team closed off a weekend of play with a tight battle against 18th-ranked Kenyon College at home on the evening of Sunday April 3, battling to continue to show why they deserve to be ranked as one of the premier teams in Division III.
The Tartans kept the competition close after some struggles in doubles play. The Tartans won 5–4, and they continue to establish themselves as a premier team in Division III.
The men came out firing in doubles play, as two of three duos went up by a game in the first few minutes of play. After four or five games of play, Carnegie continued to pull out in front. With a 2–2 split in sophomore Jeffrey Chen and junior Kenny Zheng’s play looking like the tight competition, the men looked to be in good position.
Chen and Zheng took advantage of the momentum of the break to give Carnegie Mellon its first point, however the other doubles teams fell 6–8, giving Kenyon a 2–1 lead.
With the doubles competitions wrap...
