(MCT) The ambitious international effort to take control of Syrias arsenal of chemical weapons, which seemed a pipe dream just weeks ago, has gathered momentum with a rapid-fire succession of dizzying diplomatic milestones.
The United Nations Security Council on Friday night unanimously approved a resolution requiring Syrian President Bashar Assad to relinquish his stock of poison gases by mid-2014. International inspectors are expected to arrive in Syria by Tuesday - more than a month ahead of an already accelerated schedule to begin the complex process of removing, dismantling or destroying the illicit arms.

(MCT) In the latest setback for the rollout of Obamacare, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced Thursday that small businesses in 36 states cant enroll their workers into health coverage through the new federally run insurance marketplaces until at least Nov. 1 one month later than previously announced.
The delay appears to be the result of computer and information technology problems in the Small Business Health Option Program, known as SHOP, an online insurance marketplace specifically for small employers.

SGA passed two motions granting a scholarship to the Mortar Board National College Senior Honor Society and for the purchase of memorial trees to honor recently passed professors who gave more than40 years to ULM.
The Mortar Board plans to use their $500 scholarship to fund future fundraisers and awareness campaigns. The motion was put forth by Vice President Jameshia Below and seconded by research and judicial affairs department head Samantha Craig. The vote passed unanimously.
The second motion, moved by Craig and seconded by Ash Aulds, student life and academic enhancement department head, for the purchase of memorial trees to honor professors
such as Louis Nabors and H.P. Jones also passed unanimously.
These trees will be a good way of honoring someone who has given a large chunk of their life to the university, advisor Laura Knotts said.
According to Knotts, they plan to plant the trees outside the front of the SUB and purchase a plaque for each tree.
Treasurer Adrian Lejeune announced the arrival of funds and plans to spend $300 for a new Registered Student Organization board, used for promotion of the organization during Prep and other RSO recruiting events.
Our board is very old and heavy and a hassle to put up, said Lejeune. This is something that all incoming freshmen and parents see when they come to the school so we definitely
want it to look nice and represent the SGA well.
SGA is planning service learning project focusing on promoting physical and mental health around the campus and community. A committee dedicated to this project
was formed and will begin working on possible ideas for future events. Suggestions included visiting local elementary and middle schools.

A fight between two students in Masur Hall on Monday led to one being maced, the other in need of stitches and both behind bars.
Freshmen Crystal Mitchell and Jametrice Johnson engaged in a brutal fight around 3 p.m. outside of Mitchells dorm room.
According to the affidavit obtained by the Ouachita Parish Sheriff Office, Johnson went to Mitchells dorm room and sprayed her in the face with mace once the door was opened.
Johnson then proceeded to attack Mitchell, and Mitchell fought back.
Mitchell soon pulled a box cutter from her back pocket and cut Johnson in the face.
Johnson recieved six stitches on the left side of her face.
Mitchell filed a complaint about the incident two days later. Her report was verified by ULM polices security cameras.
Lt. Steven Mahon, officer in charge of ULM Police, said, Our closure rate is high. Thats due in big part to our cameras.
Both females involved met with police, waived their Miranda rights and gave statements to ULM Police. The girls were arrested and have been charged with felony aggravated battery.
The girls will await trial, where they face up to a $5,000 fine and possible jail time at the Ouachita Correctional Center.
ULM is a professional institution and I do not think the violence is needed or wanted by any student and faculty, said Jerry Orange, a senior health studies major.
The fight took place at on the second floor of Masur Hall and was reportedly over an Instagram post.
