CAMPUS EVENTS & NOTES

"Fight"fAlls
BY ALLEN DONNE
Kid Cudi's new album,
"Satellite Flight" is less than
promising. Rather than
hip-hop, the genre of this
album is disappointingly
indeterminant. Even worse,
he attempts throughout
the album to showcase
production involvement and
half the album features odd,
space-like instrumentals.
Oscar favorites
BY CONRAD FOREMAN AND
MAYANKMATHUR
According to these
movie-watchers, the
winning film for Best
Picture should be either "12
Years a Slave" or "Gravity."
The overwhelming favorite
for Best Actor is Christian
Bale, although Matthew
McConaughey is also a
fierce competitor here.

"True Detective"
BYCHLOEGILKE
and AKSHAY SETH
The latest episode of
"True Detective" was weaker
than previous episodes this
season. Even so, the episode
was vital to the plot, and it
showed both protagonists
coming full circle. Maggie's
character, however, did not
show any new development.

California governor Jerry
Brown to seek re-election

75-year-old
incumbent hopes to
continue to tackle
challenges in office
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Cali-
fornia Gov. Jerry Brown formally
launched his re-election cam-
paign Thursday, stepping into a
contest that the former three-
time presidential candidate is ex-
pected to dominate.
The announcement was un-
derstated - a written statement
posted on his website, with an
accompanying tweet - in keep-
ing with Brown's reputation for
shoestring-style politicking. The
75-year-old Democrat said he had
filed required paperwork to seek
the office and was ready to deal
with a raft of pressing issues, from
a potentially devastating drought
to a pension system mired in long-
term debt.

Russian military stirs
chaos in Crimea after
country establishes
new government
SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine (AP)
- Masked gunmen stormed parlia-
ment in Ukraine's strategic Crimea
region Thursday as Russian fighter
jets scrambled to patrol borders,
the stirrings of a potentially dan-
gerous confrontation reminiscent
of Cold War brinksmanship.
While a newly formed govern-
ment led by a pro-Western tech-
nocrat in Kiev pledged to prevent
any national breakup, there were
mixed signals in Moscow: Russia
granted shelter to Ukraine's fugi-
tive president, Viktor Yanukovych,
while pledging to respect Ukraine's
territorial integrity.
Yanukovych was said to be holed
up in a luxury government retreat
and to have scheduled a news con-
ference Friday near the Ukrainian
border.
As gunmen wearing unmarked
camouflage uniforms erected a
sign reading "Crimea is Russia" in
the provincial capital, Ukraine's in-
terim prime minister declared the
Black Sea territory "has been and
will be a part of Ukraine."

The escalating conflict sent
Ukraine's finances plummeting fur-
ther, prompting Western leaders to
prepare an emergency financial
package.
Yanukovych, whose abandon-
ment of closer ties to Europe in
favor of a bailout loan from Russia
set off three months of protests,
finally fled by helicopter last week
as his allies deserted him. The hu-
miliating exit was a severe blow to
Russian President Vladimir Putin,
who had been celebrating his sig-
nature Olympics even as Ukraine's
drama came to a head. The Russian
leader has long dreamed of pulling
Ukraine - a country of 46 million
people considered the cradle of
Russian civilization - closer into
Moscow's orbit.
For Ukraine's neighbors, the
specter of Ukraine breaking up
evoked memories of centuries of
bloody conflict.
"Regional conflicts begin this
way," said Polish Foreign Minis-
ter Radoslaw Sikorski, calling the
confrontation "a very dangerous
game."
Russia has pledged to respect
Ukraine's territorial integrity But
the dispatch of Russian fighter
jets Thursday to patrol borders
and drills by some 150,000 Rus-
sian troops - almost the entirety
of its force in the western part of
the country - signaled strong de-

termination not to lose Ukraine to
the West.
Thursday's dramatic develop-
ments posed an immediate chal-
lenge to Ukraine's new authori-
ties as they named an interim
government for the country, whose
population is divided in loyal-
ties between Russia and the West.
Crimea, which was seized by Rus-
sian forces in the 18th century un-
der Catherine the Great, was once
the crown jewel in Russian and
then Soviet empires.
It only became part of Ukraine
in 1954 when Soviet leader Nikita
Khrushchev transferred jurisdic-
tion from Russia - a move that was
a mere formality until the 1991 So-
viet collapse meant Crimea landed
in an independent Ukraine.
In the capital, Kiev, the new
prime minister said Ukraine's fu-
tureliesinthe EuropeanUnionbut
with friendly relations with Russia.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk, named
Thursday in a boisterous parlia-
mentary session, now faces the
difficult task of restoring stability
in a country that is not only deeply
divided politically but on the verge
of financial collapse. The 39-year-
old served as economy minister,
foreign minister and parliamentary
speaker before Yanukovych took
office in 2010, and is widely viewed
as a technocratic reformer who en-
joys the support of the U.S.
