Most of the arrests came at an off-campus apartment complex, where large crowds began gathering Saturday morning for the annual event, which was started by bars to allow the students to celebrate the holiday before their spring break begins this week.
Police from the city, university and state troopers in riot gear converged on a crowd of about 4,000 people at an apartment complex shortly after noon, police said in a statement Saturday night. Police said party-goers were involved in destruction of property and, as officers began to disperse the crowd, they were pelted with glass bottles, beer cans and snowballs.
After handling the disturbance at the apartment complex, police say several thousand people assembled near a frat house and near an intersection. Authorities said they determined that the gathering became dangerous and out of control, and when officers tried to clear the crowd they again faced people throwing bottles, rocks, cans and snowballs.
Libya’s defense ministry has issued orders to its military authorizing the use of force to stop a North Korea-flagged tanker loading crude oil sold by armed rebels seeking to bypass the Tripoli government, state media said on Sunday.
The rebels, who have seized three major Libyan ports since August to press demands for a greater share of oil revenues and political autonomy, received the tanker on Saturday at the Es Sider port in the volatile east.
The docking and loading of crude escalates a seven-month blockade of key oil ports and is just one facet of deepening turmoil in the OPEC producer, which is struggling to control militias that helped oust Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 but kept their weapons and now challenge state authority.
She took on the role of acting NOAA administrator on Feb. 28, 2013. Prior to that, Sullivan was the assistant secretary of commerce for environmental observation and prediction and deputy administrator for NOAA. In 1993, Sullivan was appointed as NOAA’s chief scientist.
“With her impressive background as a scientist and astronaut and her excellent record of building bridges between diverse environmental stakeholder communities and federal policymakers, Kathy brings a great blend of scientific rigor, team-building skills, and strategic sensibility to the important job of NOAA administrator,” said John P. Holdren, assistant to the president and director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
Joining the NASA astronaut corps in 1978, she was the first American woman to walk in space.
Catalina and Pan-STARRS were the first to spot the crumbling rock, which at the time appeared as a “fuzzy object in the asteroid belt.” Following this observation was Hawaii’s WM Keck Observatory. This observation revealed “three co-moving bodies embedded in a dusty envelope that is nearly the diameter of Earth.”
While the break up of comets is common and not surprising, the break up of an asteroid has left scientists at NASA contemplating the explanations.
“This is a rock. Seeing it fall apart before our eyes is pretty amazing,” said David Jewitt, as the University of California, Los Angeles.
As the asteroid orbits the Sun at 17 km per second (38,000 miles an hour), the chunks split off from the asteroid move around 0.5 meters per second (1.1 miles an hour).
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk said on Sunday he would go to the United States this week to discuss the standoff with Russia over Ukraine’s southern region of Crimea.
“I am going to the United states to hold top-level meetings on resolving the situation unfolding in our bilateral and multilateral relations,” Yatseniuk said at the start of a government meeting in the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.
He did not immediately give any dates and provided no other details of the visit.
Two people who traveled on the missing Malaysia Airlines flight under the passports of an Italian and an Austrian citizen appear to have bought their tickets together.
The tickets were bought from China Southern Airlines in Thai baht at identical prices, according to China’s official e-ticket verification system Travelsky. The ticket numbers are contiguous, which indicates the tickets were issued together.
The new information adds to the mystery that has enveloped the fate of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the passenger jet that disappeared over Southeast Asia early Saturday on its way to Beijing.
Italy and Austria have said that none of their citizens were on board the plane. And officials say the Italian and Austrian whose names were on the passenger manifest both had their passports stolen in Southeast Asia in recent years.
Yes, it is that time of year again. Please remember to turn your clocks ahead one hour so that you will be on time. news.yahoo.com
Make no mistake, hostile school environments encompass much more than peer-on-peer bullying: dress codes, unenumerated policies, lack of access to LGBT resources, and zero tolerance policies, for example, all feed the school-to-prison pipeline.

Alas, our next generation of conservative leaders are not chanting, “Amer-i-ca! Amer-i-ca!” They are, instead, chanting, “F**k O-bama! F**k O-bama!”
And I hang my head.
So, now, children at the hotel, parents, staff, tourists - both foreign and domestic - and every other conceivable variety of guest who happens to be staying at the Gaylord National hotel during CPAC 2014 has a skewed, and likely irreversible, first impression of America’s conservative movement.
Or is it skewed?
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m certain that the vast majority of CPAC attendees, both young and old, are as appalled and embarrassed by these drunken yuck monkeys as am I.
But I think the very fact that these blazer-clad, Cro-Magnon morons could even imagine, for a moment, that it’s somehow cool to publicly chant “F**k Obama!” - or “F**k” anything for that matter - speaks to a much larger problem, not just within the conservative movement, but, more importantly, within our entire culture.
