Good morning Her Campus! With a break-neck news cycle, there is no possible way for you to stay on top of every story that comes across your feeds—we’re all only human, after all.
But, life comes at you fast. So grab a cup of coffee and settle in for this quick and dirty guide to stories you might’ve been sleeping on (like, literally. It’s early.)
People Think ISIS Has Falsely Claimed Responsibility for the Las Vegas Shooting
Despite the fact that 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, who was responsible for the shooting in Las Vegas late Sunday night, had no know affiliations with ISIS, the terror group surprised experts by taking credit for the attack, Slate reports. Experts say ISIS rarely takes credit for attacks they didn't play a part in — but on the other hand, authorities have found no connection between Paddock and the terrorist group, and his family has said that he never expressed extremist views and had no religious or political affiliation.

Semen-Tainted Flutes Were Distributed to Music Students in California & WTF?!
Yes, you (unfortunately) read that correctly. Cosmopolitan reports that an employee for Flutes Across the World, a nonprofit music education organization, distributed "semen-tainted" flutes to music students in the fourth through sixth grades at a school district in Southern California. (I'm just as horrified as you are.) The Los Angeles Unified School District is reportedly cooperating in an investigation into "inappropriate sexual conduct involving a musical performer," in 13 school districts. Um, WTF?
What to look out for...
It's October 3rd, so make sure to wear pink and quote Mean Girls as many times as possible, obvi.
