+ Max Wicha, the Cancer Center director, is stepping down after starting the University Cancer Center in a trailer 27 years ago. (You all think I make this up, but go and read for yourself.) Since then, they’ve moved into an actual building and are doing great work, creating new cancer treatment techniques, a first-in-the-nation breast cancer center. When queried as to his next career move, Wicha said, “I’m going to go eat some mashed potatoes and stuffing.” “Duh.”
+ “The Cold War, Cleopatra, and Wine:” The Daily released their guide on interesting Winter 2014 courses, and that just so happened to be the three I want.

+ Prof. Kevin Ward was hired by UMHS as the Innovation Chief. MPowered began lining up outside his office with approximately 100,000 pitches. It’s a thing.
+ An Israeli tunnel was hit by cyber pirates yesterday, which are like real pirates except they all live in their mom’s basement.

+ Climate change continues to happen.
The same Texas representative that compared President Obama to Saddam Hussein is at it again! Because what could make more sense than combining the issues of gun control and abortion into one terribly offensive and unintelligent slogan?

+ The Daily releases their photos of the year and there is not a single one from election day/night. Maybe I’m biased but that seemed like a pretty big deal at the time.

+ Colonel Ronald Shun says, “you can’t be an e-mail leader,” reenforcing the idea that I would be terrible in the army.
