Quick, what’s the capital of Canada? Alberta? Quebec? Ontario? Vancouver? Toronto? Watch as these Harvard kids feel quite un-Harvard as they grapple for the answer in this funny video by the school newspaper, The Crimson.

Our wishes have come true and we may finally be getting to ride the Green Line more than we already are. With the new Green Line extension, T-riders will be able to get from Cambridge to Medford, increasing mobility here in Boston, and most-likely increasing the amount of people who will complain about the Green Line. You can have your first taste with this video, as you travel north from Lechmere in Cambridge. This may be the most pleasant ride on the T that you will ever have, so drink it in.

A word of advice if you haven’t yet made it down to the South End to try a doughnut from "Top Chef" contestant Stephanie Cmar’s new pop-up shop: Set your alarm.

First no bags, then no bike rides, and now no military march for some previously participating military groups. Runners World reports that, due to tighter security guidelines at this year's Boston Marathon, military ruck marchers will not be allowed to make the 26.2-mile journey from Hopkinton to Boylston Street.
