Good morning. Welcome to fourth week.

A Delta Upsilon student who is now a second-year posted a Quizlet of last-year’s brothers’ favorite sex positions.

— Two women were identified by name on the list, including one University of Chicago student. Two brothers are listed with their favorite position as the “Nword flip.” One of the brothers listed alongside this position is not Black.

— DU students said in a statement the document is “gross and unverified.” DU international headquarters said it is working with the fraternity to determine the “legitimacy” of the document.

Three to four individuals fled a white Jaguar sedan that crashed last night on the intersection of Dorchester Avenue and East Midway Plaisance near I-House, according to witnesses on scene. More than 10 CPD and UCPD vehicles approached the scene of the accident, and at least one helicopter was spotted above. CPD said in a statement that they were responding to a call of a man with a gun. One person was arrested, CPD said.

An SUV crashed 11 feet into local grocery store Hyde Park Produce early Saturday evening,hitting a pedestrian in the leg. A UCPD officer said later that evening that the victim is in critical condition, contrary to previous reports that he was stable. The victim is currently expected to make a full recovery.

— A UCPD officer on scene said that he suspected that the incident was an accident. The car’s airbags had not been activated, meaning the car was likely not traveling at high speed.

The Obama Foundation publicly released the University of Chicago's original pitch to bring the presidential library to the South Side. The proposal includes impact reports on all three locations proposed by the University: Washington Park, Woodlawn-Jackson Park, and South Shore. ​

Polyphia’s new album, New Levels New Devils, transcends the rigid rules of math rock and marries together disparate music styles flawlessly.
