BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
The president of the University of South Carolina submitted his resignation this week after committing plagiarism over the weekend in a commencement ceremony speech. He took a large portion of his address from Admiral William McRaven, who previously served at the helm of the US Special Forces.
“I was searching for words about resilience in adversity and when they were transcribed into the speech, I failed to ensure its attribution. I take full responsibility for this oversight,” he said in his resignation letter.
In 2014, McCraven addressed University of Texas graduates with the following words: “Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up—if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today…”
Caslen copied the speech almost word for word, without attribution.

Parts of the United States are in for quite the treat later this month, when a rare lunar eclipse will be on full display (weather permitting).
While lunar eclipses are not extremely rare, a total lunar eclipse that is also considered a supermoon is, and that is what some people in the US will be able to see in just a few weeks.
The moon will turn red during the eclipse on May 26, and it will be a more spectacular show than usual because the moon’s supermoon status will make it appear closer to Earth and larger than normal.
While most of the US will see a partial eclipse, one part of the country will get to experience the first total lunar eclipse since 2019. So, which part of the country should have their eyes on the sky on May 26?
