AP: Rosalynn Carter, outspoken former first lady, dies at 96

Former first lady Rosalynn Carter, the closest adviser to Jimmy Carter during his one term as U.S. president and their four decades thereafter as global humanitarians, has died at the age of 96. The Carter Center said she died Sunday after living with dementia and suffering many months of declining health. The statement said she "died peacefully, with family by her side" at 2:10 p.m. at her rural Georgia home of Plains.

Students hold protest for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war at Scramble Light

This is a sentiment shared by Eyal Rawitz from Tel Aviv, Israel, and Nawar Albarak from Kuwait, a country that borders Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Though she isn’t from Palestine, her grandmother and many other family members are there. Rawitz and Albarak, though they are both students at Ball State University, had the chance to meet and discuss their experiences with each other at the Scramble Light on Friday during a pro-Palestian protest that called for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.
