I might be cutting it close time wise but it’s still Monday! And thus I made it in time to tell you about the many things that happened here over the past 7 days. Without further ado:
- Stanford Hospital is being sued in $20 million dollar class action lawsuit. Not only was patient information breached, but apparently it was on a commercial website for a bit of time. Maybe Stanford itself needs to hire more of its own CS major to defend its networks.
- Stanford Law Professor Ralph Richard Banks has recently sparked a discussion about African American women and marriage with his new book “Is Marriage for White People?”
- Our sophomore kick-off is noteworthy! Stanford is one of a small group of colleges that welcomes back its sophomore class. See how much we love you, ’14?
- Students are have developed the company WiFiSLAM to combat a new pressing problem: being unable to find friends in the same building. Indoor wifi is on its way. I’m glad that getting lost in Stanford dorms like FloMo has finally sparked something useful.
- Stanford has been given $2.5 million dollars in order to supplement our knowledge of Buddhism. A Buddhist quote is,”Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.” That’s why I won’t comment on how Harvard received a little more money than us.
- Watch out, French House. California’s wine supply may be diminishing because of climate change. Save the environment, save California’s ability to grow its own wine grapes.
- The world lost Steve Jobs. RIP.
