WEATHER FORECAST

Today: Partly cloudy. High near 60.
    We have approximately one month of classes before exams and the end
of the semester.

Tonight: Cloudy. Low around 40.
    One one hand, that’s absolutely terrifying.

Tomorrow: Partly cloudy. High in the upper 50s.
    But on the other hand, it’s still absolutely terrifying.

NEWS REPORT

1) World news roundup

Iran rejoined the fold of oil-exporting nations Wednesday, agreeing to
increase production along with the world’s leading petroleum producers
just a day after refusing to accept their decision.  Nine of the 11
members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries agreed
Tuesday to boost oil production by 1.7 million barrels per day. …A
sweeping drug bust involving the collaboration of 25 nations has resulted
in 2,331 arrests and the seizure of more than 10,000 pounds (4,966
kilograms) of cocaine, drug enforcement agents said yesterday. Michael
Vigil of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said the cooperation of
25 Central and South American and Caribbean countries in the 17-day
operation — Operation Conquistador — was as important as both the
drugs seized and the drug operations disrupted. …NASA Administrator
Daniel Goldin, who has championed “faster, better, cheaper” interplanetary
missions for many years, took full responsibility Wednesday for last
year’s botched Mars missions, a day after reports were released blaming
the failures on mismanagement, unrealistic expectations and not enough
money. …The Supreme Court ruled yesterday that cities and states may ban
nude dancing as a way of combating the crime and other “negative secondary
effects” associated with establishments offering that kind of
entertainment.
