Happening in the world: French voters are choosing their presidents today! By 12:00 local time, only 28.2% has voted. While the vote will not end until 19:00, the turn-out rate by far is said to be lower than previous elections, which might hurt the chances of the liberal centrist candidate, Emmanuel Macron. (BBC)

Happening in the nation: Under attack for making trans-phobia comments in the past, Donald Trump’s pick for Army Secretary, Mark Green, withdrew his nomination, saying that his “life of public service and … Christian beliefs have been mischaracterized…” (BBC)

Happening in NYC: The Metropolitan Museum of Art filed a petition to the city to charge non-New Yorkers mandatory admission fee. (NBC NYC)

Happening on campus: On Wednesday, President of Ezidi Relief Fund, Lucy Usoyan, Head of Office of United Nations University, James Cockayne and other human rights specialists will come to IAB from 12 pm to 1:30 pm to discuss “Human Slavery and Trafficking in Conflict Zone“.

As finals season slowly creeps in, it’s difficult to keep track of anything. Exactly how much did you sleep yesterday? Have you eaten at all? How many friends do you still have left? While we have been imparting priceless wisdom to the hopeless masses of Morningside Heights, you would think Bwog has its shit together…but we have our personal vices, too. Yes, we teach you all the necessary skills to survive college or recreationally pseudo-reproduce, but we, too, are subject to mundane affairs of the masses. If you are so inclined to find out who exactly still has the time to write for Bwog, or if you personally want to be the person who courageously writes for Bwog during finals week, come to Lerner 505, at 7 pm today. We will reward you with a Fuck Spec sticker.
