In a turn of events, Presidential Candidate Donald Trump has regained his spot at as the frontrunner in the Republican Nomination following his victory at the New Hampshire Primary. After falling short to Texas Senator Ted Cruz in the 2016 Iowa Caucus, the self made billionaire responded emphatically, winning over 35% of New Hampshire voters. He would continue his path of domination into South Carolina, where he would win every single delegate.

Originally, many people were shocked by what happened in Iowa. This naturally lead to questioning of whether Trump was truly leading the race for the Republican nomination. However, Trump has certainly picked up momentum, following a dominant showing in which he created a 19.5% margin between him and runner up John Kasich as well as Trump winning by 10% in South Carolina.

Albert Einstein was perhaps one of the most eminent scientists known to mankind. In 1915, Einstein published his General Theory of Relativity. Part of his theory included a phenomenon that wasn’t proved until very recently – gravitational waves.

David Reitze, the executive director of LIGO, Laser-Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, proclaimed, “We have detected gravitational waves. We did it.”

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.”
