This year’s boys indoor track team has already found a place on the records board, and a single championship meet has not occurred yet. The boys now hold the record for the 4x800m relay and the 1000 meter run, and they plan on breaking two more.

On January 8, at the Alpha Owl Invitational held at Southern Connecticut State University, both junior Tyler Gleen and sophomore Tyler Rubush broke the record for the thousand. It was expected that Gleen, state champion in the 600 meter run, would break the record. However, Rubush also stepped up to the challenge, despite his lack of experience. He said, “Going into the thousand I really didn’t know how I was going to do. It was my first official thousand so I really didn’t have much experience in the race.”

Manchester City went into their game against the powerful Borussia Mönchengladbach with the understanding that winning the group of death would be a long shot. In order for this to occur, Juventas had to lose to Sevilla in the game that had started slightly earlier, and Manchester City had to beat Mönchengladbach.

David Silva started off the game on a good note, scoring in the 16th minute. Raheem Sterling, who turned 21 that day, held the ball from three defenders then sent a back heel pass through them to Silva. For the first time since August, Silva scored, kicking the ball over the goalie and into the back right corner of the goal.

The 33: Hollywood Drama or Real Life Horror?

Imagine being trapped underground in 90℉ heat for 69 days with almost no food or water. Well this nightmare was a reality for 33 Chilean miners in 2010. A collapse at the San José Mine on August 5th left these men 2,300 feet beneath the surface of the Atacama Desert under a boulder twice the size of the Empire State Building.

    The San Esteban Mining Company, a privately owned company, opened this mine near Copiapó in 1889 to uncover the rich copper and gold deposits in the hard diorite stone of the desert. The mine had a history of accidents, many of which can be attributed to negligence on the part of the owners when it comes to safety precautions. In the dozen years before the accident, there had been eight deaths in the mines, and many other accidents because of safety violations. Additionally, the earth around the mine was known to be unstable, and many of these past accidents came about due to the shifting of the mountain. Just six months before the collapse, Chile suffered from a huge earthquake and accompanying tsunami, making the already unstable area even more dangerous. On August 5, 2010, the consequences were almost cataclysmic for the 33 miners.
