The best sports weekend of the year is officially in the books and just like every previous first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, this one was perfect. As per usual we had drama that couldn't be scripted and one wild finish after another.
Yale men's basketball won an upset victory over Baylor on Thursday. But for many Yale students, this first ever NCAA victory is overshadowed by a discussion of campus rape culture centered on the basketball team.
The Irish and the Italians were both large Catholic immigrant groups. And in my parents' case, they also had ten children of their own!

When I was at the point of giving up on my latest book, Brand New Man: My Weight Loss Journey, I called Nocera for advice. Fifteen minutes of his insights got me on the right path and the book will be released next week.
Is it worth it for underclassmen, i.e. juniors and sophomores, to drop out of school early, with a potential reward of a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract, or do they do so at their own peril later on?
