Normally writers mess up their first drafts, as they have shaky hands from years of drug and alcohol abuse, but Sharanya showed us that masters of science students can not only get real jobs after school, they can also write! Sharanya nailed her first article this week on heart disease with the precision of a heart surgeon. I suggest you bleeding-heart liberals have a heart and read it. It really tugs at your heartstrings.

  Game review: Dark Souls 2PDF files may take a moment to load

Dark Souls 2 is to other video games what university is to elementary school. In most games the player’s hand is held tightly as they are guided from one sanitized experience to another.

Mark Laidlaw will give just about any athlete a chance on his team — as long as they’re in shape and willing to try something new.

“We’ve got a girl who was a competitive skier. We’ve got a guy who was a swimmer and a guy who actually tried bodybuilding for a little while,” said Laidlaw, the newly named head coach of the Dinos rowing club. “There’s a wide range of backgrounds, and that’s one thing that’s really unique about rowing. It’s what some people refer to as a late-maturing sport.”

  Second guessing the stats revolutionPDF files may take a moment to load

There’s a famous brain teaser called the Monty Hall problem in which a game-show contestant is faced with three doors. Behind one door is a prize, while the other two doors hide nothing. The contestant picks a door that he hopes contains a prize. The game-show host then opens one of the other doors, revealing it to be empty. He then allows the contestant to switch his choice of door — should the contestant take the offer?
