A team of recent Drexel University graduates was named world champions of Microsoft’s 10th annual Imagine Cup July 10 in Sydney. Computer science students Matthew Lesnak, Keith Ayers and N. Taylor Mullen spent the past year creating their mobile application, “Math Dash,” to enter in the mobile game design category of the technology competition. “Math [...]
The Phillies have put together arguably their most disappointing first half of the season in franchise history in the first three-plus months of the 2012 season. The poor start to the season has caused people to evaluate the job status of General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. and Manager Charlie Manuel, and some have even gone [...]
For 19 days this summer, the world’s biggest stage will be in London for the 2012 Summer Olympics. Women’s soccer will kick off the games Wednesday, July 25, men’s soccer follows July 26, and the opening ceremony is scheduled for July 27. The U.K. will be sure to showcase its vast history and pride during [...]
I’m going to go out on a limb here and state an opinion that may be entirely too controversial for an upstanding publication like The Triangle to publish: I think that it has been really hot lately. And while it may just be me, I also find it rather unpleasant to be outside in the [...]
You know that time when you taste pure bliss for the first time? When your eyes open to twice their size and your mouth practically convulses with pleasure? I’m talking about eating your first Reese’s cup or slice of authentic tiramisu. Well, I’m here to say I’ve been to the Promised Land: I’ve tasted heaven, [...]
Roberto Salome Yahoo Inc. was once one of Silicon Valley’s top companies on the cusp of cutting-edge technology. In recent years, though, its position has slipped as other companies have been able to deliver more high-quality services. In an effort to reinvent its image, Yahoo has hired Marissa Mayer, its sixth CEO since 2007. [...]
After four years, we finally get to experience the excitement of the Summer Olympics again. And this year’s Olympics in London are more exciting than ever for us Dragons, as one of our own, Stephen Kasprzyk from the class of 2005, will be rowing for the U.S. men’s eight boat. This is only the latest [...]
Daniel J. O’Meara of Bisbee, Ariz., became a notable Drexel alumnus not just because he’s the first person to earn a doctorate at the University’s Sacramento Center for Graduate Studies but also because of his regular commute to the campus, which totaled nearly 2,000 miles round trip. O’Meara, 56, was able to take most of [...]

This article is dedicated to the ever-inspiring head coach (emeritus) of the University of Tennessee women’s basketball program, Pat Summitt. Some of you may be wondering why I am writing about a coach from Tennessee. She is nowhere near Philadelphia on the map, but in our hearts she couldn’t get any closer. Summitt encompasses what [...]
If drinks were like college, then wine would be the Ivy League school. Drinking it is more impressive than conquering a 15-second keg stand at a state school, and because it comes from countries all over the world, wine is far more cultured than anything else you can purchase in a liquor store. Wine doesn’t [...]
The name Frank Ocean probably didn’t mean anything to you before last year, when Kanye West and Jay-Z caught wind of the R&B powerhouse and asked him to collaborate on two “Watch the Throne” tracks. Ocean gave the album its heat, and “No Church in the Wild” remains one of my favorite modern hip-hop tracks. [...]
Kenneth Lacovara, an associate professor in the Drexel University College of Arts and Sciences’ department of biology, has been evacuating fossils from the late Cretaceous period that may have been created in the aftermath of the asteroid impact that killed the dinosaurs. According to Lacovara, if these fossils are from the mass extinction event, then [...]
The Philadelphia Flyers had an overall successful season. There weren’t too many expectations going into the season because the team was, for the most part, brand new. The common thought among “hockey people” is that trading away a former 40-goal scorer and a team captain could set the organization back a few years. The Flyers [...]
The Philadelphia 76ers entered the 2012 offseason with many unanswered questions regarding the team’s future on the court. Over the last few years, the 76ers’ organization has struggled to choose a defined path for the team. Despite a first-round playoff series win against the top-seeded Chicago Bulls and a grueling seven-game series against a veteran [...]
It seems so sudden, but 2012 is already halfway gone, and with it, some of the extremely exciting slate of 2012 movies has already been released. There have been many highlights, but also some sore spots. If you’ve missed some of the best and worst films to come, don’t fret. The Pretentious Film Majors staff [...]
The beer this week begins a series I’m doing over the summer on Troegs Anthology No. 1 variety pack. This features a six-pack each of Dream Weaver unfiltered wheat, Pale Ale, Sunshine Pils American pilsner and Hopback Amber American amber ale.
