In another chance to prove themselves against a national team, the UConn men’s basketball team once again fell short to No. 11 Florida State.
“When we scheduled them, we wanted to play the best and again they showed us why they are,” Seton Hall head coach Anthony Bozzella said. “Just the way they play, that unselfishness, togetherness, are all things we saw.”
Forced to dress only eight players, UConn may have been outmanned, but they were most certainly not out-gunned against Seton Hall on Saturday afternoon. The Huskies had Katie Lou Samuelson on their side, a weapon versatile enough to win a world war, let alone a basketball game.
“Their work ethic is the greatest on the team,” said assist coach Matt Scott. “They are constantly pushing to not only get more out of the team, but also knowing when the right moment is to put their arm around someone and pick them and their spirits up.”
If you were wearing UConn gear at the XL Center on Thursday, odds are it just wasn’t your night. It wasn’t for the two fans that participated in the blue line challenge during the first intermission and came closer to hitting a spectator than the net.
While Tango Mango’s jam sessions were fairly relaxed and organic, the amateur musicians found out that creating an entire album has its difficulties. “The whole process was pretty stressful,” Schmitz explained. “We didn’t mix [the album].
Within one week of moving into his room in Garrigus Suites to begin his junior year of college, Gino DeAngelis’ roommate left the University of Connecticut in handcuffs.
The proposed changes include eliminating the requirement for further amendments to the bylaws to be voted on at the very next board meeting, according to the draft.
UConn officials determined last week that there are 1.25 inches of paint covering the North campus “Spirit Rock.”
One-hundred years ago, the top cause of death was caused by infection and diseases such as tuberculosis and pneumonia occurred rampantly without cures. This all changed with the introduction of penicillin, a slew of subsequently discovered antibiotics and improvements in public health. Widespread mortality caused by bacterial infections was becoming a thing of the past and science as a whole moved forward.
After the controversial policy proposed by Betsy Devos, “The public has just under 60 days to tell the Department of Education what it thinks”. These changes to Title IX proposed may not have the intention of giving advantage to accused attackers, but some proposed policies would inevitably have such consequences. It is up to the public, especially students, to speak up for what they think sexual assault policy should look like. Increasing political activism will result in an increased influence of millennials in government decisions, because of an increased participation in democratic processes such as elections and public commenting.
Lots X, N and L will be lost to the construction, and these spaces will be closed as early as Spring 2020, at which point commuters will be redirected to the new lot, according to UConn Today. The new K-Lot will contain 700 spaces, 200 less than the total for the other lots, and will be located roughly a mile from the center of campus on Discovery Drive.
This past week, the country of Denmark announced a plan earlier this week to banish “unwanted migrants” to a small, remote island. However, this is no tropical vacation for these people. In fact, the island currently is used for housing equipment and remains of studies on contagious animal diseases.
One of only two ferries that are in use to service the island is nicknamed “the Virus.” To make matters even worse, among the people they are proposing to put on this island are criminals and people who have been rejected after seeking asylum. So, you might be starting to understand why this banishment seems a little iffy.
I grew up in East Rock, the affluent, predominantly white neighborhood that is home to the highest achieving middle school in New Haven. The city as a whole lags behind the rest of the state in terms of academic achievement, but middle schools like my alma mater which are located in wealthy, white neighborhoods regularly meet or exceed state average test scores. Conversely, poor black and Hispanic neighborhood schools often fall well short of academic standards. Unequal funding is usually blamed for achievement gaps across school districts, but it doesn’t explain this type of inter-district achievement gap. After all, there are no significant funding differences across New Haven middle schools. So what gives?
