May 17 2013
Today is partly cloudy and muggy with a high of 79.
To masticate today:
- Jeopardy Jim: The name of the Georgetown student who will compete in the college national championships of Jeopardy: who is Jim Coury (SFS ’15)? Coury will advance to the final round for a chance to win $100, 000 and to compete against Jeopardy winners of all ages. Stay tuned!
- Bend it like sickle-cell anemia: DC United defender Robbie Russell will be retiring from pro sports to study at Georgetown Medical school.
What to look out for:
- Look, ma, no carbon emissions: Today is annual Bike to Work day, in case you were thinking of getting to work in some other fashion. If you’re Joseph Gordon-Levitt, every day is work to bike day.
- Release the river: Construction on the D.C. levee on 17 St. has been shut down once again for nebulous reasons, although the main contractor has been fired. Vox will keep you posted on whether floodwaters spill over the National Mall or not.
