Undersized and overlooked: cross country poised to make noise in the Big East Championship

U.S. national parks being affected by climate change, study finds

I want to bring awareness to a disturbing statistic about how temperature increase is leading to the impending destruction of America’s national parks. As symbols of our country and natural sanctuaries, we need to protect the ecosystems and landscapes reserved for our enjoyment. A September 2018 CNN article, titled, “America’s national parks are warming and drying up faster than the rest of the country, says a new study,” cited a...

Neves: Keep Moving Forward

My mother gave my father one demand before he stepped out of the delivery room to run to the store, ‘Make sure you are not late to your child’s birth’.
