Here is a list of some of the best players to start if you are struggling to find good options in a bye-heavy week.

By: Vincent Pensabene Scary, frightful, and bizarre are just a few words that can sum up Halloween weekend, but the town of Manitou Springs, Colorado adds a sporty element to their annual festivities, their annual Emma Crawford Coffin Race & Parade. The race was created in 1995 and is based on the legend of Emma Crawford. Crawford was a woman from Massachusetts who went to Manitou Springs, just outside of Colorado Springs, hoping that the healing nature of the springs would eliminate her tuberculosis symptoms. Crawford died in 1891 at age 28, and her wishes were to be buried atop nearby…

Just in time for Halloween, “Happy Death Day” is an ode to the 90’s teen suspense, horror genre. The recent film was written by Scott Lobdell (X-Men Comics books) and directed by Christopher B.

This film finds Tree (Rothe) waking up, after what appears to be the end of another night of drinking and debauchery. She awakens in the bed of a classmate, Carter Davis (“Fear…

By: Victoria Cavillo On Oct. 3, three American scientists won the Nobel Prize for proving Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity correct. Rainer Weiss, Barry Barish, and Kip Thorne were all part of a team of about 1,000 people who first witnessed the gravitational waves, which were first theorized by Einstein in 1916. One of the reasons why this theory has taken decades to investigate is because it is very complicated to many people, even Saint Leo University’s Assistant Professor of Theology, Dr. Michael Novak. “It makes perfect sense up to a point, where I don’t understand any of it.
