The finallll countdowwwwnnn

Weekend news:

Not much to report from this past weekend, just an article or two and sports.

Check out this article about college students falling off of their parent's health insurance plans after college, leaving them uninsured. The article offers conflicting opinions about how to fix this problem and features comments from several Temple students.

Take a look at Temple University's office of sustainability website for their new summer tips. Tip: grow your own vegetables. Oh, of course. Also, hang your "close out to dry." Hey Office of Sustainability, need a paid editor for your website?

In sports, baseball was swept by St. Louie 11-7 and 12-3. In the Dad Vail Regatta, the women's team had a pretty good showing with their novice eight placing 4th overall and their varsity eight placing 5th. The men's team was a mixed bag, as the varsity eight failed to qualify for the finals for the first time in 27 years, but their JV eight won gold, and novice eight won bronze.
