On this trail, magic can happen.  Often my journey begins with consternation or even depression.  But soon after I start, my...

Film Review: Avengers Age of Ultron

E-mail Print PDF
Rated: PG-13

Running time: 142 minutes

Rating ««« out of 4 stars

You will no doubt find Avengers Age of Ultron delivers the rush and rampage of a typical mega-massive-blockbuster. This is celluloid that is stuffed with stupendous spectacle, every second of action obviously costing millions of dollars to render and will easily gather a cool couple of billions worldwide.

Yet while the film provides proper entertainment there is something a bit flat about the second installment of everyone’s favorite clump of champions. It’s more than a genre getting too much attention. Let’s call it Superhero Saturation.

Dabbling in physics: Sacred Heart gets a head start

E-mail Print PDF
“We are studying simple machines” started Sr. Christi Ann Landolff, C.S.A. as she began to describe, enthusiastically, the new curriculum she is using for teaching physics starting in sixth grade at Sacred Heart Cathedral School. She goes on to explain that physics is the base science and math is the language. If you get physics, chemistry and biology come easier because you already know the language.

The curriculum was developed largely by Dr. Anatoliy Glushchenko a physics professor at the University of Colorado. He was discouraged by the number of students dropping out of his classes and realized they were coming to college totally unprepared.

So, Glushchenko and his colleagues...
