IIT Cycling hopes for a strong finish to a great season
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2017
“It was early on a Saturday morning. A chill hung in the air, drawing all heat from those unlucky few. We had just gotten in at 2 am and were now, at 7am, getting ready for the race. The cold was as unnatural as can be, after a warm previous couple of weeks. It was close to 40 degrees colder than the previous day. Chilled to the bone, underdressed and underprepared, we continued on.”

The event presented an insightful look into the multitude of colors of Indian Society. Over two hundred people witnessed one of the oldest and most unique cultures of the world.”

Deadly Premonition is a budget game worth playing
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2017
“Playing video games is an expensive hobby. As hyped blockbusters come in greater quantities, it’s hard to justify a risky venture into an unfamiliar, unadvertised and unwanted title. With that in mind, investing in a game should go beyond the wallet, and the game should go out of its way to respect the ample amounts of time a player pours into it. Deadly Premonition, an open-world horror title from developer Access Games, started doing the opposite. When I booted up the disc, I was treated to a sloppy mess. It looked like something that spawned out of the PlayStation 2 era: the control scheme was outdated, the graphics were unbelievably bad and design issues were all over the place. Anyone with common sense would take the disc out, attempt to reseal it and persuade the retail store they bought it from to take it back.”

Keep off the Grass offers insight on balancing identities, inspires thoughts on life
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2017
“When you read a book like Keep Off the Grass by Karan Bajaj, you tend to write about it, too. A book that is unlike anyone’s usual choice – romance, comedy or thriller – a light and quick read, it inspires a few thoughts through the characters in the story.”

IIT students compete in first disc golf tournament
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2017
“The Computer Science Department sponsored a Disc Golf tournament on Saturday at 4pm, and it was a lot of fun. Only eleven people showed up, but it was enough to break up into three groups and have a good time. There was a constant threat of rain, but thankfully the weather cooperated. All skill levels were welcomed, though it seemed that most players had played before and were at least moderately good.”

Hawks take a win against Crimson Waves
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2017
“Last Friday the Hawks hosted the Crimson Waves of Calumet College of St. Joseph. The game started off with the Waves putting two early runs up on the board in the top of the first, which the Hawks answered with three runs of their own. Sophomore Nick Wise started things off with a single, and senior Jessie Stepniewski followed suit with one of his own. Senior Kyle Guglielmo hit another single, freshman Jack Kosar pinch ran for Guglielmo, and Stepniewski and Wise both scored on a hit by senior Andy Kungis. Kosar then scored on a wild pitch to give the Hawks a one run lead over the Crimson Waves.”

Never fear – your friendly A&E section, and the city itself, are here to help. The fact of the matter is, there are events and programs to try out everywhere you look.”

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter makes other books pale in comparison
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2017
“As the monotonous campus lifestyle beat out my desire to ever read a book with personal interest, I began to fear leisurely reading escaped me and replaced itself with slavish textbook learning. Leave it to the sixteenth United States President Abraham Lincoln to break me from that oppression. More specifically, Seth Grahame-Smith’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter , a ridiculous combination of the president’s life story and his fictionalized existence as a vampire killer. It can be passed off as a sordid way to honor one of the United States’ pivotal figures, but it’s an engaging vampire tale that kicks the hell out of the grocery store romance novel fodder I call the Twilight series (to which I’ll admit having read the first book, for the sake of justifying my scathing statement).”

Earth Day in the Bog a success
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2017
“How many times have you seen your professors perform in a band… at the Bog… singing a song about Earth Day? Hopefully, your answer is “at least once.” This past Thursday was the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, which IIT celebrated with an event hosted by Gangreen and the Office for Campus Energy and Sustainability. Every year on April 22nd, the world takes one day to pay attention to the planet we all share. On June 22nd, 1969, the Cayahoga River in Ohio caught fire from sparks off of a passing train. Those sparks set off a nationwide reach, set up by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson on April 22nd, 1970, which protested the political establishment and spread environmental awareness throughout the country.”

Speaking of TechNews: We're hiring
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2017
“As the school year comes to a close, TechNews is saying goodbye to our graduating staff members.
Lory Mishra, Editor-in-Chief, is being replaced by Karl Rybaltowski. Fun fact: Both ascended to the EIC throne after being A&E editors. Extra fun fact: Karl will be the first graduate student to hold the position.
Chris Chock, Assistant Editor, is being replaced by Young Sand Ip. We call her Sand. You should, too.”
