This weekend, the Carnegie Mellon men’s and women’s track and field teams competed at the University of Chicago in the University Athletic Association (UAA) Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Overall, the men’s team finished second out of seven competing schools, and the women’s team finished sixth.
The men’s team was led by its strong throwers, as it was all season. In the shot put, senior Zachary Erra-Hernandez continued his dominating season, taking home first place with a 15.80-meter throw that was 1.38 meters further than the runner up. Senior Nathan Cheek also continued performing well as he finished in fourth place with a 13.79-meter throw.
Cheek and Erra-Hernandez continued in the discus event, where they finished second and third with throws of 44.73 and 44.32 meters, respectively. They switched places in the hammer throw, where Erra-Hernandez finished second with a 52.19-meter throw and Cheek took home third with a 46.56-meter toss.

Student Senate and the Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) held a joint meeting on Thursday to hear second-round budget appeals and ratify the slate for total Joint Funding Committee (JFC) allocations for the 2014–15 fiscal year. Both bodies voted to approve a total $29,467 increase in JFC allocations — an approximate 1.95 percent increase to the original $1.51 million in allocations.
Student Body Vice President for Finance (SBVPF) and junior statistics major Jalen Poteat gave an introductory presentation, during which he urged senators and GSA members to be mindful of recent changes to the JFC metrics. Among these changes was a flat cap of $250 per person for travel. This year, the JFC also allocated more money to subsidize food for events where the food relates directly to the culture of that event.
Student Senate Chair and senior chemistry major Lukas Ronner led discussion in coordination with Patrick Foley, GSA president and a doctoral candidate in statistics.

Last year's Spring Carnival was momentous for two reasons: it was the 100th Spring Carnival and supposedly the last year the celebration’s hub would be located in the Morewood parking lot. Now, the latter is no longer true.
Booths, carnival rides, and the Main Tent for the 101st Spring Carnival will be housed in the Morewood parking lot due to delays in construction of the Tepper Quadrangle, according to Coordinator of Student Activities Tim Leonard.
Utility lines were to be placed underground in the spring to accommodate summer construction, but the work will not begin before April now, Leonard said via email.
Leonard announced at a February town hall meeting that the 101st Spring Carnival, to be held from April 16-18, would be tentatively relocated to areas around the College of Fine Arts when construction of the new facilities in the Morewood parking lot began. Leonard said Booth would be relocated to the CFA parking lo...

Take a 10-minute walk: Walking helps clear your head and boosts endorphins, which reduces stress hormones. Consider walking somewhere with lots of vegetation. Trees naturally release chemicals that boost your immune system and relieve stress.
Try doing some yoga: Breaking exercises help you relax and reduce the built up tension and stress. Yoga is characterized by deep breathing, as opposed to shallow breathing that stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, which creates stress.
Eat a snack: Stress-eating isn't always a bad thing. The gut-brain axis is the connection between the gut and the brain — more and more researchers have produced data that pegs the gut as a major mediator of stress response.
Buy yourself a plant: Houseplants don't just beautify a room. They can actually help you calm down; simply being around plants can make you more relaxed.
Step away from the screen: There is a direct coloration between stress and late-night computer use. Make sure to take frequent breaks when you use your computer throughout the day.
Pucker up: Kissing relieves stress by calming your body and creating a sense of connection. Kissing releases endorphins into your bloodstream that combat stress and depression.
Put on some music: While classical music has a particularly soothing effect by slowing down your heart rate and lowering your blood pressure, it also decreases your level of stress. Any music that you love will flood your brain with good-feeling neurochemicals.
Spend time with friends: The best way to wind down after a long day is to talk it over with your best friend. Friends are great for both fun and comfort.
Craft: Repetitive motions like the fine motor skills used to knit, make jewelry, or cross stitch can soothe anxiety. It puts the mind in a comfortable, easy state.
Drink green tea: Green tea contains theanine, an amino acid that gives the tea flavor and promotes relaxation. It counteracts the stimulating effects of caffeine that can worsen stress response.
Open the window: Just looking out your window can have a relaxing effect. Looking out at a city landscape or a nature scene slows down your heart rate. It's a lot more effective than looking at a picture — the brain is not so easily fooled.
Work out: Working out is a great way to take a bite out of tension. When you are mentally tired, intense exercise can make you more stressed. Light-to-moderate exercise won’t improve your fitness, but will lighten your mood.”

April has not been kind to the Pirates. The start of the season after their magical playoff run has been less than spectacular as they sit in fourth place in their division, over eight games behind the upstart Milwaukee Brewers.
After sitting put during the offseason, it looked like management was putting their hopes on Pittsburgh repeating the strategy of taping holes in the roster with veteran players trying to rebuild their careers.
Sadly, lightning never strikes twice, and with the loss of ace A.J. Burnett and last year's in-season rentals Marlon Byrd and Justin Morneau, the Pirates are even thinner this year.
Last year’s team stayed in games with a solid starting rotation and shut down bullpen, both of which were piecemeal groups of developing talent and resurging veterans.
So far this season, the rotation has been shaky at best with only free agent veteran pitcher Edinson Volquez posting a sub-3.5 earned run average (ERA).
Emerging star Gerrit Cole has been sh...

The top-10 ranked Carnegie Mellon men’s and women’s tennis teams both competed in the University Athletic Association (UAA) Championships in Orlando this weekend. Both teams made it to the finals, but ultimately fell short of taking home the title.
The ninth-ranked men’s team started off the competition on Thursday against the University of Rochester.
The Tartans came out strong in doubles play and jumped out to an early 2–1 lead after the duos of juniors Christian Heaney-Secord and Will Duncan and sophomores Yuvraj Kumar and Joel Lankford won both of their matches, 8–2 and 8–4, respectively.
The Tartans then put it away by taking five of six singles matches on their way to a 7–2 match victory. Sophomore Abhishek Alla, and first-years Kiril Kirkov, Duncan, and Kumar all won in straight sets to quickly seal the victory and punch their ticket to the semifinals. Kirkov was particularly impressive, only surrendering a single game in his two sets, 6–1, 6–0.

David A. Tepper returned to Carnegie Mellon last Thursday to edify an audience on his vision for the new Tepper Quadrangle, answer questions about his business strategy and, at one point, sing a few bars from Elvis’s “Heartbreak Hotel”.
Tepper first made his mark on Carnegie Mellon in 2003, when he donated $55 million, after which the Graduate School of Industrial Administration was renamed the Tepper School of Business. Last November, on the same day as President Subra Suresh’s inauguration, the university announced another donation from Tepper, this time of $67 million.
Tepper’s most recent donation will be used to expand Carnegie Mellon’s campus by building the four-and-a-half acre Tepper Quadrangle. The Tepper Quadrangle, Tepper said, will include a new space for the Tepper School of Business and the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, formed by a marriage of the Tepper School of Business’s Donald H. Jones Center for Entrepreneurship and the School of Computer Scie...

Say what you want about Cliven Bundy, but his standoff against tax collectors over unpaid cattle grazing fees is just the reminder America needs of our deep roots in libertarian insurrection.
If you’re not familiar with Bundy’s rebellion, here’s a refresher. Cliven Bundy, a Nevada cattle rancher, has been grazing his cattle on federal lands for over 20 years. In 1993, federal rules changed, and Bundy was required to pay a grazing fee. Twenty years and several court orders later, Bundy hasn’t paid a dime. As a result, a few weeks ago, government officials tried to herd Bundy’s cattle off federal lands. Not to be ousted, Bundy and a gaggle of armed supporters showed up to the scene, ready to stick it to the man. The federal representatives abandoned Bundy’s cattle, and are still trying to figure out how to react.
As outlandish as this might seem in today’s society, Bundy is following in the footsteps of a long line of American rebels, including Daniel Shays. Shays was a Revoluti...

Last week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that it would be proposing new laws on net neutrality that would allow Internet companies to charge in order to prioritize connections to web services. This comes less than two months after Netflix announced a deal with Comcast to install its own servers on Comcast’s networks, which would allow them to provide better streaming speeds to customers. Such a change in the way Internet service is conducted throws many questions into the air, including the future of the Internet itself.
The New York Times reports that FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is convinced that this new proposal will not be “gutting the Open Internet rule.” However, as a former cable company lobbyist, he was described by The Verge as “the man who could control you...
