UCSD develops illegal immigration app
Crossing the border? There's an app for that.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego, and the University of Michigan created a cell phone application that helps illegal immigrants find water and key landmarks as they cross into the United States. Once loaded onto a GPS-enabled phone, the Transborder Immigrant Tool (TBT) also alerts users to border patrol checkpoints and plays recorded poetry to make the trek less arduous, Fox News reports.
Where are you now?
Lynn University in Florida has canceled classes on Friday so students and faculty members can attend a public memorial for four students and two professors who were killed in January's earthquake in Haiti, the Sun-Sentinel reports. The group was staying at the Hotel Montana in Port-au-Prince, which collapsed and killed him. Eight other students on the same trip were outside the hotel and survived.
The Wall Street Journal's take on the California college protests: "Memo to marching students: The governor can't save you. You guys need a new legislature. This one is selling you out. Organize an opposition and vote them out in November. Plan B is quit school and become a state billboard inspector."
More than 1,000 people demonstrated at Virginia Commonwealth University Wednesday over the opinion from Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli that state colleges and universities cannot protect gays from discrimination without direction from the General Assembly, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.
