This award is for an undergraduate who excels in journalistic activity on campus. I received it for my work as News Director and later Station Manager of SUNY Geneseo's 89.3 WGSU.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

I'm actually in the process of repairing a 1930s-era Royal.

What's the funniest news-related #hashtag you've seen?

#PewPew. Thanks, @NASA!

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

Always e-mail. It helps me sort pitches into folders and keep a record of conversations.

Why Supreme Court Obamacare Decision Is Great for Uber — Uber may have publicly praised Supreme Court's Friday decision clearing the way for nationwide same-sex marriage, but a decision that came a day earlier promises a bigger impact on the ride-hailing company. The Supreme Court on Thursday issued a decision preserving federal tax credits tied to the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Here's How Much Gay Marriage Could Add To The Economy — The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 today in favor of legalizing gay marriage throughout all 50 states of the U.S. as well as in the District of Columbia. And the decision may prove to be an economic boon for business in the country.

Amazon Is Pulling Down Confederate Flag Merchandise — Amazon is removing Confederate flag merchandise after a fatal church shooting last week sparked a heated debate over the nature and meaning of the symbol, a company spokesperson confirmed to TIME. The move comes after several other major companies made similar moves, including brick-and-mortar Amazon rival Walmart and online auction site eBay.

Walmart Will No Longer Sell Confederate Flag Products — Walmart said Monday it will no longer sell the Confederate flag or items emblazoned with its likeness in stores or online, a move that came in the hours after South Carolina's governor called for the flag to come down on Statehouse grounds. The nation's largest retailer is removing Confederate flag-themed products from its stock, a spokesperson told CNN.

Lots of Zoom in a Small Camera — It's too bad Mazda called shotgun on the "Zoom Zoom" tagline, because it would be perfect for Canon's latest compact camera. Canon's new Powershot G3 X boasts a remarkable 25x zoom lens that's equal to a 24mm-600mm focal length range. Translation?
