Another humpday in the books

Congrats, you made it past another humpday. Only one more day until the college weekend begins, except now that the LCB has made so many high-profile busts, I guess we're all going to think twice about going out this weekend. Chyea...

If you don't know what we're referring to, check out our post directly below this one for the scoop about undercover liquor control board agents on our campus.

In other news, check this story about how the first strike, pun intended, in the contract struggles at Temple University Hospital could come on Oct. 2. More than 1,500 employees are ready for a 3-day picket, which would mean the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. For the love of hooter, don't get injured on one of those days.

In even more cheery news, read this article about how a Tyler School of Art professor's son and two friends were taken into custody in Iran when they inadvertently crossed over the border while hiking in Kurdistan. They have tried to appeal to Iran's president Assmenijad, but have received no response. She's trying to get as much publicity as possible so take a look!

But hey, it ain't all bad! Score one for Temple's sustainability efforts in the Bike Temple program. Peep this article that praises Temple for its efforts.

Also, if you haven't seen it before, check out the Peabody Palette blog. Sure it's for Peabody residents, but it also has a lot of good stuff such as info on coming out week at Temple, Jimmy John's, and of course our Always Sunny at Temple video contest.

Speaking of Jimmy John's, be sure to stop by their shop at the Edge tomorrow between 11-3 for $1, 8" subs, in honor of customer appreciation day!

In sports, field hockey lost to #11 Drexel, but the Men's soccer team took out UPenn 2-1 in dub-OT to tie for first place in City 6 standings. The win was huge for the Owls as it marked the first time they beat those snobby Quackers(yup) since 1990!

That's all for the news tonight, we'll see ya in the morning.
