MALAYSIA PM: PLANE PLUNGED INTO INDIAN OCEAN

Monday, 24 March 2014 09:18 Published in National News

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak says a new analysis of satellite data shows that the missing Malaysia Airlines plane plunged into the southern Indian Ocean.

If confirmed, the news would be a major breakthrough in the unprecedented two-week struggle to find out what happened to Flight 370, which disappeared shortly after takeoff from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew aboard.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Two state senators say Illinois needs another Big Ten Conference school.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports a bill has been introduced by Lisle Republican Michael Connelly and Palatine Republican Matt Murphy.
 
The two say their measure would study what's needed for a public university in the state to join the conference that already includes Northwestern and the University of Illinois.
 
Connelly says tight admissions policies at Illinois mean some students who want to attend a large state school in a marquee athletics conference look to other states such as Indiana and Iowa.
 
The 12-team conference is set to expand to include 14 schools next year. New members need support from at least 70 percent of schools to join.
 
 A conference spokesman declined to comment on the Illinois bill.
