The Hoosiers held a 15 point lead entering the half, then held off a strong second half comeback from Purdue for the final 20 minutes for the win. Trayce Jackson-Davis made his case for national player of the year, leading Indiana in points, rebounds, and blocks against Zach Edey. He was also able to attack when Edey went to the bench or got into foul trouble. Hood-Schifino looked up to the challenge, while Smith faltered in the hostile road environment, going just 1-8 while Hood-Schifino went 8-15 from the field. Things went off-script a bit in the second half, which made every stop and basket in the first half count as the Hoosiers were able to hold the lead for the entirety of the second half.
Members of the Harvard Union of Clerical and Technical Workers rallied outside Smith Campus Center Thursday in protest of what they allege are “anti-union tactics” by the University. More than 30 people — including Harvard students and other local union members — attended the rally. In a Thursday press release, HUCTW representatives advocated for a “fair” contract and alleged the University retaliated against two union members. HUCTW representative Geoff Carens said in the July interview that O’Brien was “scolded by her boss in front of her co-workers” for working as a union representative. At Thursday’s rally, Carens, the union representative, called on the University to offer higher wages.5 months ago The Harvard Crimson
A Boston man was sentenced on Oct. 5 to 10 years in prison for conspiring to distribute fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine — some of which was delivered to a Harvard biology lab. In June 2019, a package containing one kilogram of fentanyl and one kilogram of cocaine was recovered by law enforcement from a biology lab on Harvard’s campus. The following August, Rojas asked Carrasco to retrieve another package, which contained almost one kilogram of heroin. Carrasco pleaded guilty on April 13 to one count of conspiracy to distribute fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine. In one of the letters, Michael Hoadley, Rojas’ longtime friend and former baseball teammate, praised Rojas for mentoring his son.5 months ago The Harvard Crimson

At around this time, I started putting on Tefillin, a Jewish ritual object intended to remind us of faith by binding God’s words upon our hands. It took me about 10 minutes to put on the Tefillin, say the Shema prayer, and then put the Tefillin away. It wasn’t until the spring semester that the binding of my day really started to occur. Generously, he donated to me a weekday Siddur, a Jewish prayer book, with commentaries on what each prayer means and advice for having proper intentions. We don’t wake up because it is light outside or go to sleep because it is dark; we have replaced nature with artifice.5 months ago The Harvard Crimson
Former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro discussed post-pandemic living conditions of American urban areas at a Harvard Law School lecture on Wednesday, affirming that “cities can come back even stronger” after Covid-19. Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio and a Harvard Law School alum, lectured at the culmination of his stint as the Klinsky Professor of Practice for Leadership and Progress, a position endowed in 2013 and designed to bring leaders outside conventional legal fields to the school. “The pandemic exposed the deep inequality in our society,” Castro said in an interview with The Crimson. “Countless analyses have documented gaps in education outcomes, health outcomes, economic outcomes based on where people live, and also based on their background,” Castro said. “Just today, it was reported that in New York City, 104,000 students are homeless.”AdvertisementCastro drew direct attention to the financial burden created by the pandemic.5 months ago The Harvard Crimson
As a result, Ahl Nana escaped the fate of being lost in storage and is reborn into the musical world today. In this way, “L’Orchestre National Mauritanien” is not an album defined by genre, but one that explores it. Upon listening to “L’Orchestre National Mauritanien,” the listener’s first instinct is to stop, and the second is to smile. Well known artists that followed the path that Ahl Nana began include Ali Farke Touré and Tanariwen. “L’Orchestre National Mauritanien” was revolutionary in its time, and despite all the decades that have passed, the album is just as refreshing now.1 month ago The Harvard Crimson
For a college football program that doesn’t routinely attract top-flight talent on national signing day, the Iowa State Cyclones have shown remarkable consistency when it comes to playing defense. Interestingly, what makes the ISU defense so good has more to do with what the Cyclones don’t do than what they do. You can get a better idea of why teams aren’t snapping off big runs versus ISU when you look at their alignments. OU’s ability to move the ball consistently versus ISU on Saturday may ultimately hinge on a theme from earlier this year. That makes patience and flexibility key versus ISU.5 months ago Crimson and Cream Machine
