  1. Release date was announced yesterday: http://www.starwars.com/news/star-wars-episode-ix-and-next-indiana-jones-get-release-dates Star Wars: Episode IX is now set for release on May 24, 2019. Directed by Colin Trevorrow, the film will close out the third Star Wars trilogy.
  2. Oh, don't forget how they made up DC street names! That is always comical to me. If my dad was watching this show, he would probably trash it to bits for the SCIF stuff, alone.
  3. The trailer drops.
  4. http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/national-international/NY-Budget-Deal-Free-College-Tuition-For-Middle-Class-Upstate-Uber-Senate-Vote-418770294.html?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_DCBrand New York will be the first state to make tuition at public colleges and universities free for middle-class students under a state budget approved by lawmakers Sunday. The plan crafted by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo will apply to any New York student whose family has an annual income of $125,000 or less. To qualify the student would have to meet certain class load and grade point average restrictions, and room and board would not be covered.
  5. LOL!! Exactly.
  6. Cell phone batteries never die and always have a perfect signal! Jamie is right, I have watched this show from day 1, and there was too much unrealistic things in this edition. The ratings were not good (under 4 million watched per episode, except for the premiere, which was after the Super Bowl). I thought some of the actors worked, but time jumps annoy me because there is too much that can be left out.
  7. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2017/04/19/students-who-attend-college-full-time-even-one-semester-are-more-likely-graduate?platform=hootsuite A growing body of research shows that college students who enroll full-time, taking even 12 credits’ worth of course work in a single semester, are much more likely stick with college, save money and eventually graduate. Yet while the researchers behind these studies encourage efforts to nudge more students to go full-time (ideally taking 30 credits in a year), they warn against neglecting the many who will continue to attend part-time because of work and family demands -- currently only 38 percent of community college students are enrolled full-time, according to the American Association of Community Colleges. In addition, they said colleges and policy makers should avoid full-time enrollment incentives that veer toward the punitive. Some critics have made that charge about the 30-credit provision in New York State’s new free-college plan, which means students will be on the hook to pay back the tuition costs of their second semester if they fall even a credit short in a year.

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) stopped by the “Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” on Tuesday to plug her new book, but she also shared a few pointers on how Democrats should approach the next few years — including a Pixar-inspired analogy. “We cannot shoot at everything that moves,” she told Fallon. “Remember in the movie ‘Up,’ the dog, when he yells, ‘Squirrel!’? We cannot all go over there.” She added: “We got to keep a focus not on what says, what he tweets. We got to keep the focus on what he actually does.” But to Warren, Trump’s nearly 100 days in office “feels like dog years, he’s been there forever.”

  17. http://variety.com/2017/tv/news/sharknado-5-syfy-tara-reid-ian-ziering-1201976519/ “Sharknado 5” is happening, and Ian Ziering and Tara Reid are all set to reprise their roles. Syfy and studio The Asylum have given an official greenlight to the fifth installment of the “Sharknado” series. The original 2013 “Sharknado” introduced the concept of a shark-laden twister via one bearing down on Los Angeles. In “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” New York City was the target of the disaster, and in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” a mega-sharknado made its way down the East Coast from Washington, D.C. to Florida. In the most recent installment, the very-close-to-copyright-infringement-titled “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens,” the shark-infested storms went national. The film ended with the Eiffel Tower ripping away from Paris and crashing down on Niagara Falls, setting the stage for the fifth edition of America’s answer to the sprawling sagas of the ancient world.
  18. Jamie, you are so there for this.
  19. This is getting to the point where it is a almost daily occurrence, and something that didn't happen as much when Obama was in office. http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Officials-White-House-Fence-Jumper-Caught-by-Shoelaces-416903603.html

MLB has studied various ways to quicken games. ESPN's Jayson Stark reported earlier this month that MLB had made formal proposals to the players' union to usher in both raising the strike zone and scrapping the practice of lobbing four balls toward home plate to issue an intentional walk.
  22. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/elizabeth-warren-questions-devin-nunes-loyalty-over-trump-wiretap-flap/article/2618188?custom_click=rss Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren unleashed another Twitter rant on Wednesday, calling on Republicans to "get on the right side of history" and call for an independent commission to investigate President Trump's ties to Russia after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes revealed that he shared information with Trump that was withheld from his committee. "Who does House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes think he works for: the American people or [Trump]?" the Massachusetts senator asked.
