    Late goal helps No. 15/18 Harvard deal Saints men's hockey heartbreaking loss

    The St. Lawrence men's hockey team jumped out to a 2-0 lead on Friday night, but No. 15/18 Harvard stormed all the way back and Jack Badini's goal with 1:22 remaining in the third period handed the Saints a heartbreaking 3-2 loss in Appleton Arena. David Jankowski notched his team-best seventh goal of the season, while Ryan Garvey added the second St. Lawrence goal, both of which came in the first 10 minutes of the opening frame. Carson Gicewicz now leads the Saints in scoring with 14 points after picking up a pair of assists against the Crimson. At 6:18 of the first period, after Gicewicz kept the play alive with a rim around the end boards, Jankowski finished off a centering pass from Michael

    Harvard's top astronomer talks aliens and doesn't care what his colleagues think

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Before he started the whole alien spaceship thing last year, the chairman of Harvard University's astronomy department was known for public lectures on modesty. Personal modesty, which Avi Loeb said he learned growing up on a farm. And what Loeb calls “cosmic modesty” — the idea that it's arrogant to assume we are alone in the universe, or even particularly special. You can find a poster for one of these lectures in Loeb's office today, though it's a bit lost among the clutter: photos of Loeb posing under the dome of Harvard's enormous 19th-century telescope; thank-you notes from elementary schoolchildren; a framed interview he gave the New York Times in 2014; his books on

    Source: Alliance American Football had conversation with Colin Kaepernick

    Caption Close A person with knowledge of the conversation tells The Associated Press that the new Alliance of American Football spoke with Colin Kaepernick during its development about joining the league. But Kaepernick wanted $20 million or more to consider playing with the league that had its debut last weekend. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because neither side has publicly acknowledged such talks. The Alliance says its mission is to provide opportunities for players not in the NFL to continue their careers, with a possibility they could entice NFL teams to sign them once the AAF season concludes at the end of April. The league also approached Tim Tebow, who said he wanted

    A 'fountain of youth' pill? Sure, if you're a mouse

    Renowned Harvard University geneticist David Sinclair recently made a startling assertion: Scientific data shows he has knocked more than two decades off his biological age. What's the 49-year-old's secret? He says his daily regimen includes ingesting a molecule his own research found improved the health and lengthened the life span of mice. Sinclair now boasts online that he has the lung capacity, cholesterol and blood pressure of a "young adult" and the "heart rate of an athlete." Despite his enthusiasm, published scientific research has not yet demonstrated the molecule works in humans as it does in mice. Sinclair, however, has a considerable financial stake in his claims being proven correct,

    Judge to hear last round of arguments in Harvard bias suit

    A federal judge is scheduled to hear a final round of arguments in a lawsuit that says Harvard University discriminates against Asian-Americans. Lawyers from both sides are expected to round up their cases Wednesday at Boston's federal courthouse. The group Students for Fair Admissions says Harvard holds Asian-American applicants to a higher standard and discriminates against them using a subjective "personal rating." Harvard says race is just one of many factors it considers and that it can only help an applicant's chances of getting in. The case carries implications for other schools that consider race as a way to boost diversity. Both sides presented their cases in a trial that ended in November,

    Drought to clout: Women's hockey takes home first Beanpot title since 1981

    The No. 7 Boston University women's hockey team claimed the 2019 Beanpot title with a 3-2 win over Harvard University Tuesday night. This is the Terriers' first Beanpot win since 1981, before the team was a varsity program. “It's been a long time coming,” BU head coach Brian Durocher said. “Needless to say that we're all excited that the monkey's off the back. … I couldn't be prouder of this team.” Both the Terriers (17-6-7, 13-5-5 Hockey East) and the Crimson (10-12-3, 8-8-2 ECAC) came into the game on successful waves. BU had not lost a game since Jan. 5 at the University of Maine (14-13-4, 7-13-4 Hockey East), and they had been 8-0-2 since. The Crimson came into the Beanpot championship on
