Monday Night(Tuesday morning)

Special broadcast of the C&W tonight, LIVE from the TECH Center. Due to technical difficulties (overdue PECO bill) we currently have no power at the old location. Couple that with some intramural football, and you have a recipe for disaster.

But the show must go on, so here is your Monday news and Tuesday lookout.

NEWS: Some pretty big stories tonight.

First, check out our interview with TSG senator Danny Doherty below. He sponsored a resolution, along with Students for Environmental Action, that would add a $5 green fee to all Temple student's tuition.

Also, check out this article about how first and second round games in the 2013 NCAA men's basketball tourny will be hosted by Temple, at the Wachovia Center. Now all we need is to win some games and get home field advantage. Right.

And just when you thought the union contract issue was solved, another one pops up! Peep this article about how union members at the Temple University Hospital are now threatening to strike if they don't get a contract. Is anyone noticing a pattern here?

Finally, check out this article about how former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf visited the Fox school of business. His words of wisdom to the students: "One never knows where destiny will take them." Thanks Pervy, now I know for sure that I cannot see the future and have been living a lie.

In sports, nothing happened. However, soccer player Eric Witmer got A-10 player of the week and football kicker Brandon McManus got MAC special teams player of the week.

Tuesday's lookout:

Weather: Mid 70's and cloudy during the day, mid-60's with a chance of rain at night.

Good stuff from the Temple Today:

Flu vaccine going quick: As you may have heard, Temple is offering free seasonal flu vaccines. NOT FOR SWINE! Normally, a good turn-out would be several hundred students. Much more than that came today, with wait times up to two hours. Tomorrow the university is scrapping its original plan to stop at noon and is just going from 8 a.m. until the supply is out. To quote the joker "when I say that one little old student will die(of swine flu), well then everyone loses their minds!" or something like that.
"Confessions of a converted lecturer: 12-1:30 p.m. Engineering building, room 126. Facilitator Eric Mazur will explain how often times the lecturer--not the material or students--is the key to class learning. "
Well no duhhhh, students are never the problem. If more than one student gets a C, it's always the fault of the professor. Thankfully they're starting to recognize this major issue, my GPA has been hurting for years.
"How to turn around toxic talk: 10 a.m.- 12 p.m. Mitten Hall, room 250. Learn how to recognize, understand and redirect potentially damaging communication.
Umm, when did the word "argument" become politically incorrect?

Wiffle ball homerun derby at the PAV at 7. Ryan Howard will be there. Disclaimer: Ryan Howard will not actually be there.
