U.S. Soccer gap between pay and gender still a problem

In March 2016, a handful of notable members of the women’s national team filed a complaint against United States Soccer protesting the pay disparity between the men’s and women’s national teams. Despite the different pay structures organized by the players association of each team and each collective bargaining agreement, the discrepancy was evident in a number of financial notes and statistics. After more than a year of conflict,...

Opinion: Robots in the workplace pose a few problems

Seton Hall’s promising 90 percent employment rate for the Class of 2016 bodes well for future graduates, but it fails to consider the automation of a variety of industries. Robots taking jobs from people is a reality that is terrifying, especially for a student in the Class of 2019. Millennials like myself, who help pay for their own education, may no longer have the luxury of working the kind of jobs that machines can do better,...

Analytical technology taking over the sports world

In a game largely defined by athleticism, instinct and on-the-fly decision making, it is difficult to conceive that numbers have taken over baseball. Before long, the analytical efforts of Oakland general manager Billy Beane brought the small-market Athletics to a level of competitiveness traditionally held by big-market teams like the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees.

Hilaire reigns in 2-0 weekend for women’s basketball

Kaela Hilaire has been a play-maker in her first year of collegiate basketball. Her most recent accolade occurred Sunday, Jan. 29 against Butler.

With another opportunity to seal the deal against Butler, Hilaire found her touch when she...

Pirates’ confidence helps Powell bounce back

Myles Powell was out of sync. Before the team hosted St. John’s on Sunday, Jan. 23, the Pirates played three road games in six days where Powell was visibly struggling to find the bottom of the net. During this span he shot 5-29 from the floor and converted on an 3-23 attempts from deep. Powell’s low point came against Providence in the middle of the road trip, where he scored a season-low two points. It was the fifth game this season...
