    A Bay State college student gave U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s televised town hall-style forum the hook by standing up for her troupe’s performance of “Urinetown” that had already been booked for the same stage. Westfield State University President Ramon S. Torrecilha announced the MSNBC broadcast, set for Friday, is now called off after a social media campaign he criticized as costing the college a “missed opportunity.”

    Ah, opening day, a fresh start, a chance for teams to put their best foot forward — and for the Miami Marlins, the team that traded away all its best players this offseason and became baseball’s punchline again, none of that fresh-start stuff happened. The Marlins threw out the first pitch of the 2018 season to the Chicago Cubs and they totally Marlins’d it. [Still not too late to join a Yahoo Fantasy Baseball league] That first pitch, from Miami opening day starter Jose Urena was promptly deposited over the fence by Cubs leadoff man Ian Happ. That’s not what...

    The thrusters aboard the Voyager 1 spacecraft just did what we thought was impossible. After 37 years of inactivity, NASA just received response from spacecraft 13 billion miles away, NASA said in a statement on its website. Voyager 1 is NASA’s farthest and fastest spacecraft. It was launched on September 5, 1977. Having operated for 40 years, 6 months and 14 days as of March 19, 2018, the spacecraft relies on small devices called thrusters to orient itself so it can communicate with Earth. These thrusters fire in tiny pulses, or “puffs,” lasting mere milliseconds, to subtly rotate the spacecraft...

    As our lawsuit continues, so do our forensics. New computer investigative tools have become available, and grains of evidence have been solidified into forensic mountains. Our evidence involves multiple computers and government I.P. addresses discovered improperly residing in them. That brings us to the news. Not long ago, my forensics team asked if I used that Apple computer after the IG returned it. My team was conducting a new exam. “No,” I replied, “it hasn’t functioned since before I gave it to the IG. I just stored it when they returned it. Why?” “Because — that’s not your hard drive...
