Softball hits the Dome

Luther softball is in full swing as the women played their first tournament at the Rochester Dome Feb. 27-28. Wins against Augustana (11-3) and Millkin (15-0) on Saturday, followed by wins against St. Scholastica and Carleton on Sunday, started the season off strong.
“Things are going really well,” captain Kristen Winter (‘15) said. “We’re a little [more] ahead of schedule than we have been in the past.”
This tournament gave the team their first game experiences of the season. The women have had several practices in the Rochester Dome, but this weekend was the first real competition. It also provided the team with solid feedback on their successes and highlighted things they can improve upon.

Album Review: BadBadNotGood “Sour Soul”

Jazz trio BadBadNotGood and legendary Wu Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah team up for a collaborative hip-hop album titled “Sour Soul.” BadBadNotGood is a Modern Jazz trio out of Toronto whose sound has been largely influenced by hip-hop production.

Last spring they released their most mature project to date, entitled “III.” Although this project was still reminiscent of their previous output – a jazz sound steeped in hip hop influences – they added sound electronics and sampling which created a much more expansive, mysterious and unique final product.

I appreciate the recent front-page story in Chips about the many perils posed by the use of hydraulic fracturing in U.S. oil and natural gas production.
