    NEWS:

    Two people died in a skydiving accident over the weekend in Cape Cod. An instructer and student jumping in tandem crashed into a building where they were killed. The cause of the accident remains unclear at this time.

    A security vulnerability in the GNU Bourne Again Shell (Bash), the command-line shell used in many Linux and Unix operating systems, could leave systems running those operating systems open to exploitation by specially crafted attacks. The Bash vulnerability, now dubbed by some as "Shellshock," has been reportedly found in use by an active exploit against Web servers. The bug, discovered by Stephane Schazelas, is related to how Bash processes environmental variables passed by the operating system or by a program calling a Bash-based script.

    SPORTS:

    The Rhode Island College Men's soccer team defeated Western Connecticut by a score of 4-2.

    The New England Patriots lost to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night by a score of 41-14 and move to a record of 2-2 on the season. The Patriots will take on the Cincinatti Bengals at home in week 5 

    The Boston Bruins drop their preseason game 5-3 to the New York Islanders.

    The White House could become less accessible, as the US Secret Service considers ways of making the precinct safer by setting up checkpoints or barriers around it, after a man with a knife managed to make it inside the building. Tourists willing to visit the area around the White House might soon have to get their bags and ID’s checked blocks away from the presidential mansion. Introducing the measure is being discussed by the US Secret Service, according to an anonymous law enforcement official, who spoke to the Associated Press on Sunday. 


    SPORTS:
    The Rhode Island College Men's soccer team defeated Framingham State 2 to 1 on an overtime goal by senior Emmanuel Asiedu.

    The Rhode Island College Women's soccer team was defeated by Framingham State 4 to 3.

    The New England Patriots defeated the Oakland Raiders on Sunday 16 to 9 and will play the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4 at Kansas City. 

    The Boston Red Sox defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 11 to 3 last night at Fenway Park.

    The Boston Bruins defeated the Washington Capitals 2 to 0 in their pre-season home opener at TD Garden.

    The official said the plan for the checkpoints was not new, but has gained momentum following a failure by the security agents to prevent an intruder carrying a knife from entering the White House’s front door.

    In a worldwide first, brain surgeon Dr. Bon Verweij of the University Medical Center (UMC) Utrecht successfully replaced the complete skull of a 22-year-old woman with a 3D-printed, tailor-made plastic skull in a surgical procedure that lasted 23 hours.

    Massachusetts' highest court on Monday threw out a lawsuit seeking to block Tesla Motors Inc from selling its luxury electric cars directly to consumers in the state, enabling it to bypass traditional dealerships. The state's Supreme Judicial Court unanimously concluded that the Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers Association and two dealers lacked standing to block direct Tesla sales under a state law designed to protect franchise owners from abuses by car manufacturers. Justice Margot Botsford wrote that the law was aimed at protecting dealers from unfair practices of manufacturers and distributors "with which they are associated, generally in a franchise relationship," rather than unaffiliated manufacturers.
