Around the Globe: Headlines to keep an eye on

Vue Delays

Move in dates for the Vue on MacGregor have been delayed once again as students are still waiting to move into their apartments. The new move-in date has been set for Oct. 4, six weeks after the original Aug. 23 move-in date.

Hong Kong

Protests in Hong Kong have turned violent after China decided that it would choose the city’s leaders. But since Hong Kong has kind of always done their own thing, citizens rioted. The protests are illegal in China, but that hasn’t stopped the thousands of protestors from turning out.


In an interview with “60 Minutes,” President Obama admitted that the United States underestimated the threat that ISIS made. Obama’s plan is still to not have soldiers on the ground but House Speaker John Boehner says that the U.S. may not have any other choice but to put them there.

Voting Restrictions

Cases about voting restrictions in certain states have led some lawsuits to head to the Supreme Court in the next couple of weeks. Statewise, Texas just denied having a student ID, such as a Cougar Card, be used for voter registration while a concealed weapon permit is allowed.

Texas Governor Race

Nov. 4 will be a big day in state history as Republican Greg Abbott and Democrat Wendy Davis battle it out atop the hills of Austin for their chance to become governor of Texas. Incumbent Rick Perry has come under hot water lately for his recent indictments while Abbott and Davis have been neck and neck since both announced their campaigns last year. Abbott leads in poll numbers, while Davis has the power of public knowledge on her side.

Texans Season

The Houston Texans are off to a good start, leading the AFC Southern Division with a 3-1 season so far. Next on the agenda are the guys in blue and white: the Cowboys, Oct. 5 at AT&T Stadium.


Apple released the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last week — though some, like the Australian man who dropped it immediately after buying it, didn’t savor the moment for long. Nonetheless, it sold 10 million copies, outselling last year’s make by nearly a million sales.
