Cal Poly is only the beginning, Colorado State University also plans to start selling its microbrews made by students. 

Since the craft beer industry is growing, David Ryder, chief brewmaster for MillerCoors told CBS Los Angeles, “This could be a natural progression for college programs."

...Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin voiced disapproval of this decision, saying they would go toe-to-toe with US threats and could potentially cut off access to the ISS. He also quipped that the US should deliver its astronauts to the ISS via trampoline. At the time of that announcement, the United States had two astronauts onboard, leaving some to speculate about their fate. Rick Mastracchio returned to Earth just yesterday, but Steven Swanson is still onboard. Gregory Wiseman is currently scheduled to launch to the ISS on May 28 for Expedition 40 and that plan does not appear to have changed.

Earlier this week, a grand jury in Cass County, Mo. indicted 25-year-old Megan Blair Baker (pictured above) on charges of having sexual contact with a 17-year-old student. According to investigators, Baker, a teacher and the assistant wrestling coach at Cass High, had sex with the teen on the school bus. He later told all his friends about it (of course he did), which is how his parents found out. Not too long after that, the father of the teen reported the incident to investigators.

“We heard it happened on a school bus and the boy was openly bragging about it,” Sherwood Cass parent Linda Aldin said. “He was telling everyone he had sex with the woman.”

“It just really shocked us,” Aldin said. “I never dreamed that it would happen at our school.”

Ghost peppers are known as one of the hottest peppers available.  This student brought one to his Long Island, NY school. When he let a few of his friends try some of the pepper they ended up in pain and he ended up with detention. He says the school likened bringing the ghost pepper to bringing LSD to school. The school principal maintains that the punishment will stand. The family's lawyer argues that the school should not be able to limit what kids can bring with them to lunch.
