Commencement 2012: Seniors say goodbye
Ethan M. Long
It was four years ago that the Class of 2012 got its first taste of what Suffolk University had to offer. It was a much different time. George W. Bush was President of the United States, David Sargeant was President of Suffolk Univ e r s i t y, and the 10 West Street Residence Hall had just opened weeks before. The M o d e r n Theater? A plan which would be a few years away from completion. The Brewer Fountain was covered in aged copper and
bikes were the worst possible transportation for inner-city commutes. Today, Barack Obama is facing Mitt Romney in the General Election,
ton is one of the top five biking cities in the United States. The Modern Theater has won awards for its energy efficiency, while the university welcomed James McCarthy as the institution’s ninth president. The afternoon ceremony, which took place on Sunday, May 20 in the Bank of America Pavilion, saw a condensed crowd of family members, friends, and colleagues all there to celebrate the final step of their loved ones’ undergraduate journey. Preceding the march of students into their seats, two huge screens in the front of the room broadcasted segments from Suffolk U News -- featuring interviews with faculty and a skit with Rammy, Suffolk’s Photo by Ethan M. Long mascot, waking up the Brewer Fountain has been late and having to run from completely restored, and Bos- Temple Street to the water-
front pavilion. “For quite some time we have called the halls of Donahue, Sawyer, Archer, Sargent, and Fenton our home,” spoke Raymond Babu Kaniu, selected as the student speaker for the ceremony. “Our feet have graced the meandering paths of Temple, Ashburton, Derne, and Tremont. We have laid firm grounds in friendship, comradeship, and loyalty with people from here and far beyond; some who we regrettably lost, but in spirit we know that they are here with us on this scorching afternoon.” As he stood up there, Kaniu spoke of his times living in a small Kenyan village. He represented the embodiment of Suffolk Founder Gleason Archer’s dream—to provide education to those who have lived under unfortunate measures. “We diligently listened to instruction from our professors and shared our knowledge and views with our colleagues. We refined our values and exerted ourselves to the pursuit of a quality education for our gratification and for those who sup-
ported us along the way. Each and every one of us brought with them a different story and generously added on to the Suffolk legacy that over a century ago Gleason Archer began when he moved the school from Roxbury to that familiar, tasteful piece of land on Beacon Hill,” he said. Also speaking during the ceremony was Alan Solomont, United States Ambassador to Spain and Andorra, who spoke about how pursuing his love of community organizing and politics lead to his work with President Barack Obama. “I stand before you, on this glorious day, to impress upon you one basic idea: while you might have gotten here from following your head, and while you sit here thanks to strength from your soul, never forget to follow your heart,” said Solomont. “For 40 years, I’ve followed not only my heart, but what is my passion. And I hope that is something each and every one of you can find in your own lives. If you do—believe me when I tell you this—

'The American Dissident' takes on SU Poetry Center, Prof. Marchant
G. Tod Slone, editor of the biannual journal The American Dissident, has a problem with Suffolk University’s Poetry Center and its director, Professor Fred Marchant. In an open letter and a political
cartoon sent to the school’s English department faculty and The Suffolk Journal, Slone depicts Marchant as a freespeech-oppressing gatekeeper who wants to censor outsider thoughts. In his letter, Slone writes, “Suffolk University Poetry Center, which Marchant cre-
ated, rejected my request that it consider subscribing to The American Dissident, a nonprofit journal of literature, democracy, and dissidence.” He adds that Marchant also “rejected the thought of inviting me to the Center and/or his Creative Writing classes.” “The Poetry Center
doesn’t subscribe to any journals,” Marchant told The Suffolk Journal. The library or individual departments can subscribe to publications but the Poetry Center “has no say” in those decisions, he said. Marchant was totally surprised upon receiving Slone’s letter and seeing himself de-
picted in the cartoon. “It came out of the blue,” he said. “I vaguely remember getting a request” for an invitation to the Poetry Center from Slone, Marchant said. The Poetry Center receives at least one request, if not more,

President McCarthy, during his short, quote-less speech, spoke about the class of 2012 which, sity.” McCarthy went on, stating, “Approximately 8 percent of you are international students hailing from about 100 nations. Among you are many veterans who have returned from serving our country and then enrolled at Suffolk through the Yellow Ribbon program. One of you receiving a BA today “More than 500 of you have gained a global perspective through international study experiences, including at our Suffolk Madrid campus. About 60 percent of you completed internships while at Suffolk, working for everyone from the Boston Celtics to Fidelity Investments. And the statistic I’m most proud of: Over the course of four years, students in this class have contributed nearly 29,000 hours of service to the community.” The crowd applauded, McCarthy finished his speech, and the graduates started to walk across the stage.

per week from writers who wish to use the space, according to Marchant. “When I get a request, I first look at the writing” of the individual, he said. “I don’t know of his poetry, if there is any.” After reading through Slone’s blog, Marchant made his decision not to invite him to speak. “The Poetry Center is about showcasing literature, not about argumentation,” he said, “My responsibility to the community is to make a judgment on whether a speaker merits [the Poetry Center’s] time and limited resources,” he said, “and his work doesn’t merit our time.” For this, “[Slone] calls me gatekeeper. I say no—I must make judgments.” In his letter, Slone criticizes the ‘literary machine’ for “ostracizing the few of those who dare go against the grain.” He believes that decision makers like Marchant attempt to “reduce speech” and “limit debate.” He calls on Marchant’s colleagues to “manifest unusual curiosity and openness, normally absent in the minds of most university professors of literature and creative writing” in their classrooms. “Might there be ONE of you, yes just ONE of you, who might actually be a proto comment,” Slone wrote at the beginning of his letter. He notes later, “not one of the professors contacted deigned to respond.” On The American Dissident’s blog (theamericandissident.org), Slone has posted many cartoons of academics that he dubs ‘democracy-adverse organizations’ “as tested by the editor.” “Slone may have a grudge against an organization,” Marchant said, “but denying a request doesn’t make an organization ‘democracyadverse’ … these claims are through the organizations listed, he was baffled to see Pen New England among them. Pen, which has chapters all around the world, was originally founded during the Cold War to help imprisoned writers express their ideas. Their core ideal is to preserve the freedom to write. Marchant is a former chairman of Pen New England. “We believe in free speech,” Marchant said, “Slone’s speech is not censored, he has a platform to say what he wishes on his blog.” Marchant stresses that he does not want to get into an argument with Slone over this and “takes no glee” in denying his request. “I respect him and his efforts,” Marchant said, “If it weren’t all in that one argumentative note, it would be a good debate to have about the sociological dimensions of literature, like the status of publishing today or the meaning of creative writing at schools.” “He has a point of view, and I’m glad he brings it out to the world,” Marchant said, “It’s just not exactly what we discuss at the Poetry Center.”

Amelia Earhart mystery solved?
Aviator Amelia Earhart’s whereabouts before her untimely death has been one of the world’s biggest mysteries since her disappearance in 1937, but a jar of anti-freckle cream from that time period may hold the key to answering the 75-year-old question. A broken glass container, which researchers believe was once owned by the aviator, was found on the island of Nikumaroro by the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery. Jo Cerniglia, the TIGHAR researcher who found the artifact told The Daily Mail, “It’s well documented Amelia had freckles and disliked having them.” The reason the group believes that the cream could have belonged to Earhart is because the researchers have tracked the navigation line of her last flight. Based on her final radio transmission passing through Howland and Gardner (now Nikumaroro) Island along with the remains of a castaway found in 1940, TIGHAR believes the cream very well could have belonged to the first woman who flew around the world.
Bloomberg proposes soda ban
In an attempt to lower the increasing rate of obesity across the United States, Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City has proposed a ban on any soda or sugary drink over 16 ounces. If passed, the ban would apply directly to restaurants, delis, sports arenas and movie theatres. Bloomberg’s proposal marks the first time any U.S. city has attempted to limit the portion sizes on soft drinks, leaving producers of the product upset. “New Yorkers excpect and deserve better than this. They can make their own choices about the beverages they purchase,” said Coca-Cola Co. in a statement to the Associated Press. Diet soda would not be affected if the ban was passed however, neither would any drink containing 70 percent juice, or over 50 percent milk or milk substitute. The mayor’s proposal is excpected to win approval from the Board of Heatlh and would be enforced starting in March.
Discussing the price of education
On June 8, the public will have the chance to sit down to breakfast with a panel of education experts. The event (“What Price Education: Municipal Challenge or Opportunity?”) begins at 7:30 a.m. in Sargent Hall and is the newest panel to be presented in the Moakley Breakfast Series at Suffolk University. After the panel finishes its discussion, the public will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the cost of education and what it means. The Moakley Breakfast Series was started by the Moakley Foundation, part of the Institute for Public Service at Suffolk University, along with the John Joseph Moakley Archive and Institute and other municipal partners. It was created to honor John Moakley’s dedication to public service and
to involve the community in public matters. Speakers are selected based on national and regional distinction and expertise in the panel subject. Both Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Barney Frank have
attended Moakley Breakfast events in the past. The men and women participating in the upcoming panel discussion are Dr. Thomas Kingston, the superintendent of the Belmont school district; Glenn Koocher, the executive director of the Massachusetts Association of School Committees;
Linda Noonan, the executive director at the Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education; Dr. Kathleen J. Skinner, the director at the Center for Education Policy and Practice; and Frederick W. Clark, Jr., the President of the John Joseph Moakley Charitable Foundation and the former chair of the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education. Suffolk University’s new President, James McCarthy, will also be attending Friday’s event, providing parents, students, stakeholders, and interested citizens with a chance to meet him before the new school year begins. The panel provides an excellent opportunity for the public to engage in discussions with professionals about important public issues; this week, the cost of higher education and its public implications will be the focus of the dialogue.
Warren clinches nomination
Elizabeth Warren is now the official Democratic Party candidate for U.S. Senate from Massachusetts, avoiding a run-off September primary election by receiving 95.7 percent of the vote of the delegates at the state party nominating convention, according to The New York Times. Although Warren has been regarded as the presumptive nominee for quite some time, she did still have Marisa DeFranco as the sole challenger left in the primary race. DeFranco failed to get enough votes to force a primary, allowing Warren to continue focusing her campaign on defeating Republican incumbent Senator Scott Brown in November. Before Warren's nomination, no Democratic candidate had ever won more than 86 percent of the vote in the convention's past 30 years, according to The New York Times, making Warren's landslide nomination historic even if it was inevitable.
June 7, 2012
Welcome to Suffolk! As I saw most of the students whom I started with walking on and off stage during this year’s graduation ceremony, I thought about my freshman year. I was in the Class of 2012. You’re all in the Class of 2016. Some of you may end up being in the Class of 2017. Don’t fret -- it’s not too uncommon for those who enter college to fall a bit behind. You might be taken aback by workload, your social life may start to change rapidly, or you might just become a lethargic person. If I had to give you some advice, it would be this: know your limits. Don’t think that you can stay out all night and still be able to get to class the next morning, because it gets tiring fast. You’ll start to trip over your work, causing a snowball effect. You’ll be too scared to ask your professors for help, and the anxiety will overcome. Take a step back -- just breathe for a few minutes and ask yourself: what do I need to do? Then do it. That’s college, and in a few years it’ll be the real world. Your friends won’t care if you don’t hang out with them in order to complete school work, and if they do complain then maybe you shouldn’t be friends with them, because
they’ve been misinformed about college. It’s expensive. Whether you’re paying yourself, through loans, financial aid, or through your parents -- don’t waste the money. You’re just kicking yourself in the butt if you thought coming here was all fun and games. Sure, there’s fun to be had, but I know first hand that sometimes fun can lead to regret. Suffolk has lots of opportunities, as does Boston itself. Take advantage, have fun, and excel in passion. This is a changing world, and we’re the generation that will help transform it. --Ethan M. Long
Last week we were all finally presented with the verdict of the John Edwards trial regarding alleged campaign funds used to cover up his 2007 affair with a former campaign worker, Rielle Hunter, while his wife was dying of breast cancer. Just by writing that sentence I am reminded of how much I dislike Edwards in the first place. It’s one thing to cheat, but its another thing to do it while your wife is diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. Along with the loss of a presidential nomination, a child was an outcome of this affair. Once the news came out, Edwards denied the child as his own, but eventually came out with the truth that he is the father in 2010. Looking at Edwards’ past, I’d say he wasn’t the most honest or sincere person, so faced with the recent trial, I had a feeling justice wouldn’t be served. Edwards was indicted on six felony charges including four counts of collecting and using illegal campaign funds, one count of conspiracy, and one count of making false statements. If he were to be found guilty, the ultimate potential outcome of the trial would be 30 years jail time and a $1.5 million fine. On Thursday, May 31, the twelve assigned jurors found Edwards not guilty on one charge of using illegal campaign funding for personal reasons. A mistrial was called on all other counts against him. In my opinion, this is exactly why people despise politicians. They lie and cheat, and do whatever they can to make sure their next election is secure. In almost every recent campaign or election
season, there has been some sort of scandal regarding a nominee, and sadly, it has become a pattern in regards to secret affairs. What is so terribly difficult for these politicians to remain faithful to their relationships and their word? Testimony was presented by numerous witnesses of Edwards' former 2008 campaign blatantly saying how Edwards used them to cover up the affair. The prosecution tried to prove that Edwards knew about the money being transferred to Hunter by Ed-

wards's former aide Andrew Young (who published a book saying Edwards begged him to take responsibly for the child, which for the time being he did). The defense tried to argue that Edwards did not know he was violating campaign finance laws and that being a liar wasn’t enough to be convicted. Apparently the jury sided somewhat with the defense. Letting Edwards walk out of the court room a free man. Don’t get me wrong I love our court system and respect it fully, but when people considered to be public figures continuously break the law and get acquitted, it suggests injustice in the system. We may never know the truth about this case or what more the jurors wanted to be presented. I guess we will just have to wait for the twelve of them to publish memoir books about it!

Curt Schilling's studio strikes out
Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is embroiled in some well deserved controversy following the collapse of 38 Studios, the video game development company which Schilling founded. Curt Schilling was, at one time, both heralded and scoffed at for his boisterous bashing of big government and advocacy of smaller government. But as news surfaced that Schilling was seeking loans from the state of Massachusetts, both sides aligned began to align him. In January of 2010, Curt Schilling stated in his blog 38 Pitches, “What Government run/funded program in this country’s history has ever been run with an ounce of financial responsibility, prudence, or with the peoples'
best interest at the forefront? None, that’s which one.” But his tune quickly changed two months later, in March 2010, when the Boston Globe reported Schilling was seeking incentives to stay in Massachusetts and “if other states are willing to play ball with him on tax incentives, he might move.” The report went on to state, “Schilling said his quest for tax breaks was partly inspired by the success of Massachusetts' incentives for filmmakers.” In July 2010, the Providence Journal reported that Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation approved a $75 million loan to Curt Schilling’s 38 Studios. Part of the deal required the company to bring 450 jobs to Rhode Island by the end of 2012, and the company quickly left Massachusetts for a headquarters in Providence in April 2011.
Some in Massachusetts de- ing up to the missed payment nounced Deval Patrick for and that “company execunot providing incentives to tives also turned to the City of Providence 38 Studios, for help.” but many Curt Schilsaw the hyling was subpocrisy in ject to ridicule S c h i l l i n g ’s in the days strategy. following and On May justly so.

by this point. Schilling backed up his business plan and decisions by claiming he sunk as much as $50 million in personal investments into 38 Studios. However, only about $4 million can be accounted for – the down payment for the $75 million loan from Rhode Island, which was then loaned back to himself from 38 Studios’ funds. Finally, on May 24, 2012, the company imploded. An email was sent to all employees, informing them of their immediate termination. The taxpayers of Rhode Island lost millions, and hundreds of employees were suddenly left unemployed. “What Government run/funded program in this country’s history has ever been run with an ounce of financial responsibility?” The answer certainly does not lie with 38 Studios.
The Electoral College needs fixing
The Electoral College is an idea originally created by the founding fathers and eventually modified into a system adopted by the country to fairly represent all states in national elections. The original idea was to make sure small, less populated states like Rhode Island, Wyoming, and the Dakotas can still make a difference in these elections. Now, if this were the main objective of the electoral college today, I wouldn’t have a problem with it, but in regards to current elections, the electoral college hasn’t been doing its job. National nominees still only spend campaign time in the larger populated states, especially swing states like Florida. The majority of every state's delegates goes to the nominee who receives the popular vote in that state which means a voter in say, California, which has 55 delegates and is a Democratic state, may vote Republican, but in the long run their vote
will be thrown away and all 55 delegates go to the Democratic nominee. This is the same situation in the majority of states with constant voting records. The problem with
out the entire campaign season, the popular vote seemed to bounce back and forth between the two nominees. Ultimately Al Gore won the popular vote, beating Presi-
this is that less populated states get left out in campaign experiences and other more populated states get bombarded with events and annoying phone calls at dinner time. Problems in past elections have influenced many opinions about the Electoral College system. One of those major national elections is the 2000 Presidential election between Al Gore and George W. Bush. President Bush ended up winning the election because of his victories in states with more Electoral College votes. But through-
dent Bush by around 500,000 votes, but because Bush received more votes through the Electoral College, he won the presidency. This also seems to be a possible problem in the upcoming 2012 presidential election between Republican nominee Mitt Romney and incumbent Democrat President Barack Obama. While all major polls show a neck and neck race between the two nominees, according to electoral college polls, President Obama is winning by almost 90 electoral votes. Most states have the op-
tion of assigning all of their votes to one nominee or splitting up their perspective votes to opposed delegate officials that assign their delegate vote at the national convention. This is a good option for states that want to make sure their votes are distributed properly amongst the available nominees that represent the state’s voters. Recently this was proposed as a threat for the Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Across the nation, Ron Paul supporters have received numerous delegate positions for the Republican Convention where they will announce the official nomination. Former Governor Romney has already received the necessary delegates for the nomination but the presence of Congressman Paul supporters may shake up some influence on the nomination. Although it is not a prominent threat, Paul supporters will make an appearance trying to execute the importance of a united party and stress the understanding that there is a large presence of moderate Republicans who are not willing to sit around
and allow the Tea Party to take over. Our nation has evolved since its beginnings in the Constitution. The original objective of the Electoral College was logical and democratic, making sure every American could be heard even in the smallest states. Our population is growing now and considering our current national economic situation, this is a very important election to all Americans and everyone wants their voice to be heard. The Electoral College use to represent our country accurately, but our melting pot of a country is changing every election, growing towards a challenging change of the Electoral College. The most accurate system of voting is to include every vote in the results to make sure the nation is satisfied with their leader. I want my vote to count, but the way the system is now, I would need to move to a state that primarily votes for the political party I support. But I don’t want to have to do that— I want to live and vote in any state I want and be sure my opinion counts toward the future of our country.

Celebrating WWII heroism sounds through photographs
During World War II, more than 2,000 Jews found refuge with Albanian families to avoid capture by Nazi forces. It was a matter of national honor for the Albanians to protect the Jews from prosecution; the Besa, the Albanian code of faith and honor, inspired courage in both Muslim, and Christian populations. American photographer Norman Gershman was inspired by stories of the Besa and the rarely heard stories of Albanian heroism throughout the war. He traveled to both Albania and Kosovo to investigate and illuminate the stories of the Albanian men and women who had provided shelter to the Jews, and he emphasized the Albanian Muslim population. His work is on display at Suffolk University’s Adams Gallery through July 8th and features photographs along with personal accounts of each subject’s involvement with the Albanian rescue efforts during the war. Each photograph is presented in black and white and
most feature a portrait of the individual who provides the historical narrative. In some cases, however, the subject is holding historical artifacts, old photographs, and heirlooms. A

number of the portraits are taken in the household where the Jews were sheltered decades ago. Each photograph broadcasts a particular tone that carries over into the story that is pinned below it; as the viewer approaches each image, he or she can sense the emotion of the narrative before beginning to read it. The elderly subjects and
of social classes are depicted, yet there is a common theme throughout. Besides following the Besa, meaning “to keep the promise,” each Albanian Muslim felt it was their duty to protect other Hebrews. In one of the accounts, an Albanian woman named Drita Veseli describes her husband’s role in the protection of Jews he knew well. He was a pho-
tographer and had learned his craft from a Jewish man named Mandil. When the Italians deported the Mandil family, he received permission from his parents to shelter them and their four cousins in a mountain village. “There are no foreigners in Albania, only guests,” was his response when asked how so many Albanians had sheltered Jews. Reporting the presence of Jews would have been a disgrace to both a person’s village and their family. The exhibit is not entirely about religion, nor is its implication entirely religious. Although it highlights the fact that Muslims were sheltering Jews, it is ultimately a celebration of the power of humanity against adversity and oppression. The Albanians competed with each other to save the Jews, and their courage saved thousands of lives. Gershman’s exhibit provides an exceptionally close look at the faces of some of the courageous individuals who selflessly protected strangers during a time when inhumanity reigned.
'The Dictator:' wacky yet innovative
"Inside In/Inside Out" The Kooks Indie rock from England, fun stuff for a summer jam sesh. -Gianna Carchia Just when Sacha Baron Cohen has exhausted all his film ideas and the controversy is over; think again. Cohen struck movie theatres again— this time as The Dictator. The recent film directed by Larry Charles and starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, Sayed Badreya, Jason Mantzoukas, and Michele Berg, The Dictator is yet another way Cohen manages to create a wacky persona. This character is a dictator by the name of Admiral General Aladeen of the North African Republic of Wadiya. The character is of course very similar to those in Borat and Bruno, also directed by Charles. The question is, are these characters too similar or are they just different enough?

speech to stand strong against his Wadiya becoming a democratic-style government. He wants to remain the dictator who keeps his people strictly under his own belief system, (comically of course). When his dictatorship is threatened, a series of awkward and silly events take place leading ultimately to Aladeen finding love with an extreme vegan feminist by the name of Zoey, played by Anna Faris. As far as predictability, there’s rarely any of that, as is often the case with Cohen. With a good cast and believable acting, The Dictator is really quite worth a trip to the theatre. Each of Cohen’s strange characters are amusing in their own way, but you don’t have to look too deeply to realize they’re all essentially the same. In each film Cohen is a very foreign and intolerant man who comes to America for either personal or political reasons. Each
film generates much gathered public attention, with the films being banned in several countries after its release. Despite these controversies however, Cohen’s satirical humor is not lost. He manages to continue to break the bonds of the Photo courtesy of Flickr user pepepedilla expected and to shatter the confines lowing. Even with the similariof film as we know it.

Now a University graduate, Tsatsopoulos had the opportunity to revisit a few memorable moments as a student. “I remember Fall semester of 2011, 15 minutes after class began, the professor never showed, so we all decided to leave. As we were waiting for the elevator, she came out and we all had to march back into the classroom,” said Tsatsopoulos.
Biennial faculty exhibition shows off NESAD professors' diverse talents
The main gallery of Suffolk’s New England School of Art and Design (NESAD) has been taken over by the eclectic work of the school’s Fine Arts and Foundation Studies department faculty. Featuring a breadth of styles and processes, the Biennial Exhibition includes sculptures, drawings, photographs, and lithographs that range from classic realism to modern abstraction. Students can easily recognize some professors’ pieces from afar, as they showcase the style the instructor stresses in a basic foundations class. Steve Novick’s “Seed” and “Transit” could be example pieces in his Color Theory class. The small canvas paintings feature limited, unifying color choices, minimalist designs, and impeccable craftsmanship. But there are also some
professors’ pieces that go far beyond the subject matter they teach in the classroom. Ilona Anderson, a foundations drawing professor, crafted a colorful, disjointed, multimedia drawing for the exhibition unlike any of the black and white, observational pieces that are produced in her level one class. Made with cut paper, all the colors of the rainbow, and an unusual composition, Anderson’s maze-like piece “Zebra” is playful yet mysterious. It forces the viewer to linger and analyze the complicated imagery in order to understand the journey happening within it. Peter Thibeault’s freestanding six-foot sculptures evoke two totally different atmospheres, showcasing diversity within his own artistic style. “Light / House,” a functioning floor lamp featuring a houseshaped lampshade, looks like it belongs in a hip South End loft. Built with wood and a rich,
warm color palette, the lamp is Audrey Goldstein’s sculpture, both homey and elegant. “Deformable Bodies D Series Thibeault’s other piece in #7,” is one of the darker, moody

From the quirky to the serious, the contemporary to the classical, all the pieces are a testament to the great range of talents and aesthetics of NESAD faculty members.

Patriots Reload for 2012-2013 Season
After another heartbreaking Superbowl loss, the New England Patriots leave the past behind them as they prepare for another run to glory. The Patriots have reloaded with a handful of new players, and the new rookies and veterans could be the ones to give the Patriots that extra push to becoming a championship team. Head Coach Bill Belichick has put together a solid roster that will be very interesting to see who makes the cut. Positions like wide receiver and defensive linemen are filled with talent and potential. With no lockout this year, free agency was able to resume it's regular schedule in the 2012 offseason. The Patri-
Tim Thomas to take year-long break
Boston Bruins starting goaltender Tim Thomas will most likely not be returning to the team for the final year of his $5 million dollar contract. His departure will raise some issues with the Bruins salary cap position, as his $5 million will still count against the cap. Thomas, who is 38, cited focusing his attention on “Friends, Family, and Faith” as his reason for the hiatus in a posting on his Facebook page. He also expressed interest in playing for team USA in the Olympics in 2014. Beyond this statement, Thomas has not elaborated on his hockey future. With the absence of Thomas, it is finally time for the Bruins to turn to his heir as starting goaltender, Tuukka Rask. Rask is highly touted and has shown tremendous talent backing up Thomas for the last few seasons. Last season Rask was 11-8-3 with a .929 SV%, 2.05 GAA, and three shutouts before a groin injury ended his season.
Arbitrator rules in favor of NFL bounty case
An arbitrator has ruled that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has the power to suspend several New Orleans Saints players for their roles in the bounty system that the coaching staff had in place for three seasons. The scandal blew open back in March when the NFL announced that they had credible evidence that Saint’s defensive coordinator Gregg Williams had a bounty program in place. Williams has already been suspended indefinitely by the league. The NFL player’s union said it plans to appeal the decision made by Stephen Burbank, a University of Pennsylvania law professor who decided the case. The players currently suspended are Jonathan Vilma (entire 2012 season), Will Smith (four games), Anthony Hargrove (eight games, now with Green Bay), and Scott Fujita (three games, now with Cleveland).
Wizards opt to keep Wittman
The Washington Wizards have decided to hang on to head coach Randy Wittman. He guided the team to an 18-31 record after replacing Flip Saunders in January. Saunders had coached the team to a 2-15 start. The Wizards had ended the season winning six in a row and eight of their last 10, and finished 20-46 overall. The president of the Wizards, Ernie Grunfeld, believes that Wittman works well with the team’s young talent, and former #1 overall draft pick John Wall had publicly stated that he wanted Wittman to return. This is Wittman’s third stint as a head coach in the NBA, having previously coached the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Cleveland Cavaliers. He also played 543 career NBA games with Atlanta, Sacramento, and Indiana before retiring as a player in 1992.
Jacksonville Jaguars first round pick arrested for DUI
Jacksonville Jaguars’ 2012 first round draft pick Justin Blackmon was arrested on aggravated DUI charges in Oklahoma the weekend of June 2-3. Authorities explained that the fifth overall selection was arrested early that Sunday morning after having three times the legal amount of alcohol in his system, according to his breathalyzer test. Payne County Sheriff Sgt. Brandon Ingham told CBS News in a statement that Blackmon was “unsteady on his feet,” adding “his speech was slurred and his eyes were glassy and blood shot.” This marks the second time that the wide receiver has been arrested on DUI charges in the past two years. Blackmon was arrested on misdemeanor DUI charges back in 2010 after being pulled over by authorities for speeding on a Dallas, Texas highway. Jacksonville spokesman Dan Edwards told
CBS News that the team is aware of Blackmon’s arrest. The Jaguars and the Oklahoma State product have yet to agree to terms on a contract.
ots were able to re-sign players like Matthew Slater, Deion Branch, and got Wes Welker to sign his franchise tender. The biggest splash in free agency was former Ram and Bronco wide receiver Brandon Lloyd. Lloyd has 311 receptions in his 10 year career, as well as 31 touchdowns and over 4,700 yards. Lloyd could be that missing piece if he can be a deep threat and continue to have some of the best hands in the NFL. Other notable free agent signings were safety Steve Gregory, runningback Joseph Addai, linebacker Bobby Carpenter, and the resigning of ex-Patriot Jabar Gaffney. When much is gained, much is also lost. The Patriots lost an all-time Patriot in left tackle Matt Light, who retired this off-season. Light blocked for quarterback Tom Brady's blindside during the Patriot's dynasty era. The Patriot's also lost Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis to the Cincinnati Bengals, and effective pass-rusher Mark Anderson to the Buffalo Bills. This year's NFL Draft seemed like a success to the
Patriots, focusing all on defense. The Patriots traded up for both Chandler Jones, defensive end from Syracuse, and Donta' Hightower, line backer from Alabama. Both Jones and Hightower seem like they can come in and be superstars, even though Jones is a "raw talent." The Patriots drafted other great players like captain of the Arkansas defense Jake Bequette, Illinois safety Tavon Wilson, Ohio State Rugby captain turned safety Nate Ebner, and stole Nebraska cornerback Alfonzo Dennard. They also signed undrafted free agents runningback Brandon Bolden, defensive lineman Marcus Forston, and offensive lineman Jeremiah Warren. As far as new breakout players, expect Hightower to have a big rookie year, and m a y b e even contend for defensive rookie of the year. One of Brady's favorite targets was Gaffney, so don't be surprised if Gaffney produces more statistics than Lloyd this year. Some key things that must work for the Patriots to be successful are the health of defensive players Brandon Spikes and Patrick Chung. The absence of Spike and Chung made the regular season more difficult on the secondary due to lack of pass-rush and coverage. Also, Nate Solder has big shoes to fill at left tackle, it may be wise to move Sebastian Vollmer to left tackle, Solder right tackle, Marcus Cannon and Logan Mankins at guard, and Dan Koppen or Dan Connolly at center. Brady will be well protected if the offensive line stays healthy. The Patriots may still have some question marks in the secondary, but they are still one of the best teams in the league. The BelichickBrady era may be coming to an end, so this could be one of the last shots at the Superbowl. The Patriots have all the talent, in the end, it all comes down to winning.

Correa Goes 1st in MLB London 2012: An American Preview Draft, Makes History Journal Staff
Matt Bacon Matt Bacon
The Houston Astros surprised the baseball world on the night of June 4 by choosing infielder Carlos Correa as the first overall pick in the
time." Minnesota had the second pick, choosing outfielder Byron Buxton. Buxton is a potential two-way player and supposedly has a fastball that can reach 99 m.p.h. However, Minnesota seems
MLB draft. Correa, age 17, made baseball history by becoming the first Puerto Rican player to be selected first overall in the draft. The last time a Puerto Rican born player was chosen so high in the draft was when Jose Cruz, Jr. was drafted third overall out of Rice University in 1995. Correa attended the Puerto Rican Baseball Academy in Gurabo, Puerto Rico prior to his selection in the draft. The school is unlike any other in Puerto Rico or the U.S. It is a prep school for students aspiring to play college and professional baseball. The Astros have extremely high hopes for Correa. MLB.com reported the team’s Director of Scouting, Bobby Heck, as saying "We feel very comfortable that the Draft isn't his finish line. The Major League AllStar Game is his finish line." Many draft analysts were expecting right-handed pitcher Mark Appel to be the first overall selection. Appel, however, was chosen eighth by the Pittsburgh Pirates, a team already loaded with great pitching prospects. What makes Appel’s position in the draft even more interesting is that he was the fourth pitcher chosen, and two of the previous three were right-handed. Appel opted not to speak to the media after the draft, but released the following official statement: "I'm currently concentrating on winning a national championship and finishing my academic endeavors at Stanford. I will address the possibility of a professional career in due
more interested in using him as a fielder. The organization has produced several talented outfielders over the last few seasons. The third overall pick went to the Mariners, who chose catcher Mike Zunino out of the University of Florida. Zunino was this year’s Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, and is known for his power-hitting skills. Our hometown team, the Red Sox, had two selections in the first round this year. With the 24th overall pick, they chose shortstop Deven Marrero out of Arizona State University. Marrero is a highly touted defensive prospect who can also bring some offense into the mix. With the 31st and final pick in the first round, the Sox chose lefthanded pitcher Brian Johnson. Johnson is also highly touted, and is currently playing in the NCAA tournament for the University of Florida. In 16 starts for the Gators this season, Johnson is 8-4 with a 3.56 ERA while holding opponents to a .242 average. He is also a potential two player, as he is currently hitting .310 with five home runs. The Red Sox, however, plan to develop him as a pitcher. Overall, this year’s MLB draft was fun to watch and full of surprises. History was made and the baseball world was shocked when Correa was chosen first overall. Perhaps the biggest surprise was the favorite to be picked first going eighth overall. This draft was loaded with talent, and as passionate fans, we should all be excited about the future of these young players.
It’s hard to believe that it has already been four years since the 2008 Beijing Olympics and this summer, sports lovers around the globe are going to be treated to an awesome Summer Olympics event in London, England. This year’s Olympics features 36 different sports, including basketball, football (soccer), field hockey, swimming, wrestling, and four different kinds of cycling. So, as American sports fans, what should we expect from this year’s Olympics? What teams will dominate the rest of the world? This summer, be sure to pay attention to three different U.S. Olympic teams. First and foremost, there
2008, breaking an Olympic record with eight gold medals. While Phelp’s performances have been slipping recently, it is a relief to know that the man who does beat him is Lochte. Lochte won two golds and two bronzes in 2008, and it appears he is reaching the peak of his career just in time for London 2012. With a supporting cast with names like Nathan Adrian, Matt Grevers, and Nicholas Thoman, the U.S. Olympic men’s swimming team is sure to be a force to be reckoned with this summer. The next team to watch is women’s soccer. While U.S. men’s soccer has never been a dynamic force in international sports, the women have one of the highest ranked teams in the world.

is the U.S. men’s swim team. Lead by Olympic legends Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte, this team dominated the 2008 Beijing Olympics and is looking to do so again this summer in London. Phelps was a monster in
the World Cup Final last year, the squad is sure to show up to London with a hunger for vengeance. The team is led by three superstars: veteran Abby Wambach, rising star Alex Morgan, and goalie Hope Solo. Wambach scored
the gold medal winning goal against Brazil in 2004, and Morgan has 22 goals in 38 appearances with the national team. As usual, expect the men’s basketball to destroy all competition this summer. The team is loaded with NBA superstars like Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and Blake Griffin. And that’s just to name a few. In 2008, the men’s squad went 8-0, defeating Spain 118-107. The 11 point victory was the closest game the team played in the entire Olympics. While there are a couple teams with NBA players that may be able to challenge team U.S.A., like Spain, Argentina, and France, don’t expect much to change in 2012 for the U.S. men’s basketball team. This article is just a small sample of the glory that America can achieve at this year’s Olympics. Going back to 1896, the U.S. has about 2,300 total medals, three times as much as Great Britain, who comes in second with 725.5 total medals (the USSR had more, but the team disbanded with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1992). The team has not earned less than 90 medals in a single Olympics since getting 71 in the 1960 Rome Olympics. In 2008, the team won 110 medals, including 36 gold, second only to China’s 51. If all goes as planned, America will continue her Olympic dominance over the rest of the world this summer.

Men's Tennis wins fourth straight championship for Suffolk
The men of the Suffolk University tennis team have shown that they are an unstoppable force in the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC). After winning their fourth championship in a row, the Rams have made it clear that they are Suffolk's most successful team sport. The Rams defeated their Boston rivals, Emerson College, 7-2, the same final match score as their first game of the season against Emerson. Suffolk's victory capped off a 13-1 record at the end of April, winning them a welldeserved title. The Ram's only loss was against Babson on the road, as Suffolk stayed undefeated at home (10-0). Senior Chris Staley was also a first-team All-Conference selection in singles play, as he recorded an 8-2 overall mark and was a perfect 7-0 from the second singles position for Suffolk. Staley
finishes a career in which he won a total of 68 matches for Suffolk between singles and doubles play. His 39 doubles victories are the most by a Suffolk player in the last ten years. He was named To u r n a m e n t MVP for 2012 as he went 4-0 in the two game tournament for Suffolk. Staley was selected for firstteam All-Conference, along with Albert Buruga, Aaron Lau, and freshmen Marc Winkler. Staley and Winkler were Suffolk's top doubles team in 2012 as they earned first team All-Conference honors for pairs. They finished with a 6-2 mark on the season. Buruga was Suffolk's best singles player of the season

NJ v. LA? Why the NHL salary cap is finally working
It’s June, and for hockey fans that means one thing: the Stanley Cup Final. Just two months ago, at the beginning of the playoffs, analysts and amateurs alike were all making their picks for who would meet in the Stanley Cup Final. Some said St. Louis and New York. Others said Pittsburgh and Vancouver. But nobody guessed that it would be the eighth seeded Los Angeles Kings playing the sixth seeded New Jersey Devils in this year’s battle for the cup. The two teams took different paths to the finals. New Jersey heated up after a slow start to finish with 102 points and grabbed the sixth seed. In the playoffs, they defeated the third seeded Florida Panthers in seven games, the fourth seeded Philadelphia Flyers in five, and earned bragging rights with their heated rivals the
New York Rangers after defeating them in six games in the Eastern Conference Final. After hitting a bump in the road against Florida, New Jersey is 8-3 in their previous
shutouts, a .929 save percentage, and 1.95 goals against average during the regular season. It has been a totally different story in the postseason. Going into the finals,
two series. The Kings barely squeaked into the postseason. An anemic offense (29th in the entire NHL during the regular season) was saved by unworldly goaltender and Vezina Trophy nominee Jonathan Quick, who had 35 wins, 10
defeated (8-0) on the road. So what does this all mean? That the salary cap, implemented after the 2005 lockout by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, is finally working. Bettman created the salary cap to minimize the gap between good and bad teams. Ideally, if all of the teams had the same amount of money to spend on players, teams would be more evenly matched, making for better hockey. Seeing a sixth seed and an eighth seed playing in the finals means that Courtesy of Flickr User Connie Kim the salary cap is the Kings are 12-2 and aver- finally starting to work in the age 2.85 goals a game.

The fact that the Devils racked up 102 points this year and still only got the sixth seed also proves that competition in the NHL is getting much closer. As this season has shown, it is also harder for the top seeded teams to play against the lower seeded teams in the playoffs, making for even more unpredictable playoff action. Overall, this is a great thing for the NHL. Every aspect of tighter competition will draw in more fans for the game that sometimes struggles to grow in America. The higher chance for success will draw more fans to teams with struggling fan bases like Florida or Columbus. And closer, harder fought games will draw more fans all around. Most hockey fans aren’t huge fans of Gary Bettman, but his critics at least must thank him for the salary cap, which has made the sport we all love more exciting to watch. Now it’s time to sit back and enjoy this year’s Stanley Cup Finals, which features two great teams and will be as exciting as ever to watch.
