Where were you on April 15, 2013 at 2:49 pm? Only one short year ago, I vividly remember sitting in Salmanson Dining Hall, with my eyes glued to the breaking news coverage playing on all the TVs. For the first time in my Bryant career, an eerie hush filled the dining hall as everyone around me also stared blankly at the breaking news coverage. The typical “Salmo” chatter was replaced with the frantic news reporters and coverage of the tragic scene happening live on Boylston Street in Boston, Massachusetts. The 2013 Marathon Monday that we all know as a renowned New England tradition, turned into a horrific sight, playing out right before our eyes, terrorists had set off two bombs.
This past fall semester I participated in the Management-200 Service Learning Project. Through this semester long project, I had the opportunity to work with one inspiring individual and survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing, Jarrod Clowery.
On April 15th, standing only three feet in front of the second bomb, Jarrod was blown into Bolyston Street, puncturing the back of his legs with shrapnel and debris emitted

Koffler Center outdoor renovations set
The Koffler Communication Complex has plans for improvements this summer
By May Vickers Staff Writer

As part of Bryant University’s ongoing sustainability efforts the Facilities Department will renovate the Koffler building with sustainability innovative Boral TruExterior Trim this coming summer. The decorative exterior trim which looks like natural wood has many sustainable advantages.
The trim is comprised of seventy percent recycled materials and has been tested to last five years in even the most extreme climates. Due to the polymer chemistry and coalcombustion products the trim contains properties with almost all no moisture cycling making this the product an ideal exterior trim for Bryant’s Koffler building.
The facilities department chose this trim over competitors because Boral TruExterior Trim has similar properties to natural wood and added benefits. Comparable to wood the trim has a similar weight, can be painted any color, has a reversible authentic wood grain and smooth grain side and is easy to cut or alter.
Additional benefits include exceptional durability, workability and resistance to rotting, cracking or splitting. Most other exterior trim products cannot withstand intense moisture and

temperature change, are not approved for ground contact, require special adhesives or costly installation techniques and cannot be painted any color.
Boral TruExterior Trim has been certified as a sustainable solution. This product is SCS certified minimum seventy percent recycled content pre consumer and Cradle to Cradle silver. SCS Global Services sets the standard for sustainability as a trusted leader in third party environmental, sustainability, and food quality certification, auditing, testing and standards development.
The Cradle to Cradle Certified Products Program represents a rigorous and comprehensive system that analyzes a products’ overall sustainability in categories including material health, material reutilization, renewable energy, water

stewardship and social fairness. In comparison to competing trim brands, TruExterior trim has the highest recycled content , is the first trim to achieve Cradle to Cradle silver certification and is produced in a LEED Silver certified commercial facility in East Spencer, North Carolina.
Boral TruExterior Trim has multiple applications including door trims, window surrounds, fascia boards, soffits, corners, garage door casings and rake boards. With the versatility of the trim, this product has been used in various constructions throughout the nation. In 2008, builder David Haines utilized TruExterior Trim to build eight sustainable homes in Knoxville, Tennessee responding to consumer requests for increased sustainable products. Similar to David Haines, builder Charlie Bordsen used TruExterior Trim

in his custom built homes in East Hampton, New York to save money and “go green.” His customers felt satisfied knowing that they had the option to use better performing and more sustainable products.
In 2009, USA Today reported that over one hundred majors, minors and certificates in energy and sustainability related programs were added compared to only three programs added in 2005. According to the National Career Development Association, many universities are now ranked on their green and sustainability initiatives as student interest in this career field has heavily increased in the past five years. As sustainability initiatives continue to increase across university campuses nationwide it is refreshing to see Bryant University capitalizing upon this trend.

Kelsie’s Korner Spritz Cookies
By Kelsie Hollenbeck Staff Writer

Spring has sprung! What better way to celebrate the warm weather than with some tasty baked goods? These cookies may trick the mind into thinking they are flowers, but I assure you: they are edible and delectable. Some may even believe they are too beautiful to eat, but those doubts will fly after tasting these amazing treats. Spritz cookies can be made easily with a cookie press. With just one press, you’ll have flowers blooming right before your eyes. You aren’t limited to just flowers with the Spritz cookie press, either; you can make any shape ranging from a teddy bear to a Christmas tree!
These cookies can represent any season or occasion you’d like, extending from shape to color; and they are crowd-pleasers, too. One important tip when making Spritz cookies: don’t forget to accessorize! No jewelry for these cookies, decorate them freely them with sprinkles, frosting, or even chocolate. The possibilities are endless! No matter what shape or décor you choose, a beautiful tray full of cookies will be the end result.

Bryant University is ranked 49th of the top 50 business schools in the country, as recently announced in the 2014 Bloomberg Businessweek rankings. The university’s rising position in the annual rankings solidifies Bryant’s leadership role and innovative approach to education.
What makes Bryant stand out? The university is unique in its integrated pairing of business and the liberal arts, producing well-rounded graduates. Bryant’s global focus is also a point of acclaim, ranking among the top fifteen colleges and universities in 2012 for undergraduate participation in study abroad programs. A point of difference between Bryant and competing universities is the unique opportunity for students to participate in the Sophomore International Experience, a ten to twelve day introduction to studying abroad with each group of students accompanied by Bryant faculty.
The learning experience at Bryant is one of a kind, whether it be abroad or in a classroom. The university employs no teaching assistants and professors have realworld experience. Small class sizes allow students to become active participants in the classroom and work collaboratively with professors and within groups. This academic quality indicator is among the criteria of the schools ranked, along with student surveys, feedback from employers in the business community, and median salaries. The employer survey ranked Bryant 18th out of 132 undergraduate programs; this affirms Bryant’s undeniable ability to prepare students for success. Other significant recognitions for Bryant include the university’s rank as second in the region in 2013 for up-and-coming universities and sixteenth nationally for its International Business program. In 2013, Bryant University was acclaimed by the Princeton Review as among the “Best 378 Colleges” in the United States. Here is what Bryant community members have to say about the recent accreditation:
President Machtley says “Businessweek’s recognition of the excellence of our programs highlights Bryant’s leadership role in delivering an innovative education
that stands out among those of the elite business schools in the country.”
"Bryant continues to set itself apart as one of the most innovative schools in its peer group,” said Richard Joseph, interim provost and chief academic officer. “I am
honored to be joining Bryant at such an exciting time in its 150-year history.”
“I am thrilled that our small university community is recognized for its accomplishments and prestige. One of the reasons I chose Bryant, aside from the exemplary academics and program for my major, is that everyone here is always willing to help one another and contribute to peers’ success. Not only do we shine in our academia, we shine as a community.” –Bryant University undergraduate student
“We determine the success of our business program based in part on the careers that our students have pursued, the jobs that they have accepted, and the paths that they have chosen to take,” said Madan Annavarjula, Ph.D., associate dean of the College of Business. “In 2013, more than half of our students had job offers before they even walked on the stage at graduation.” Within six months of commencement, Bryant’s Class of 2013 reported that 98 percent were employed or enrolled in graduate school,
a clear indicator of the value of the Bryant degree.

Hero’s Hearts Foundation
Continued from page 1

from the explosion. Out of his group of friends in the same vicinity, Jarrod was the only survivor to maintain all of his limbs. To this day, he is still undergoing surgeries to remove the nails and pellets embedded in his legs.
Although Jarrod experienced this tragic event, he does not see himself as a victim. Jarrod is a survivor; an individual who seeks to inspire others through his experiences. Through his darkest of days spent recovering in the hospital, he found hope. The support he received from hundreds of people around him sparked the idea to create a non-profit foundation called “Hero’s Hearts.”
I first encountered Jarrod at the introduction of the Service Learning Project for all Management 200 students. Prior to his presentation, my professor asked me to write a press release on Jarrod’s speech for media coverage on campus. I drafted the release within a few days and sent the finished copy to multiple local TV and radio stations, hoping some reporters would be interested in his story. On the day of the event, I received a phone call from ABC-6 News informing me they would send someone to cover the story.
From the moment I first heard Jarrod’s speech, I was inspired to help his cause. After establishing a relationship with him, we agreed to work together for the semester as part of the Service Learning Project. Every Monday Jarrod would come back to school, where my group would work on enhancing his public speaking skills. We taught him various lessons, such as how to address different types of audiences and organizations and how to define his talking points. With practice and constant constructive criticism,

Jarrod constructed his speech into a more concise and impactful direct meaning promoting his foundation for multiple public appearances.
On the logistic side of our project, we used our business outlooks to assist in the establishment of Jarrod’s non-profit organization, called the Hero’s Hearts Foundation. By the end of the semester, Hero’s Hearts transformed from a simple idea into a functioning foundation. With a dedicated founder and inspiring mission to give back to the real heroes, Hero’s Hearts aims to help others achieve success and remember to give back to the community.
Jarrod has successfully completed his goal in building his foundation before the anniversary of the Marathon. Hero’s Hearts Foundation officially launched on April 1st at Jillian’s in Boston, MA,
The bombing impacted the lives of people throughout Boston, as well as across the country, forming an unbreakable bond as “Boston Strong.” In times of tragedy, Boston citizens united in full force. From the first responders on the scene to the selfless citizens who jumped in to help, the country and the city of Boston truly are stronger than ever.
As the one year anniversary of this event approaches next week, April 21st, the tradition of Marathon Monday will continue like it always has. However, this Marathon will be special. Participants will run for themselves, for the victims, for the survivors, and for Boston Strong.

Long Island student accepted at all 8 Ivy League schools
By Zachary R. Dowdy MCT Campus

Seventeen-year-old Kwasi Enin of Shirley, N.Y., took a shot at and won _ what amounts to an academic royal flush: He applied to and was accepted at all eight Ivy League schools.
But the William Floyd High School senior said he never thought he’d land slots in the class of 2018 at Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale. He hasn’t decided where he’ll attend, but would cross Long Island Sound to attend Yale in New Haven, Conn., depending on the financial aid package offered.
Kwasi said he thought he’d just give it the old college try and “maybe two or three of them” would bite, he said. The eight Ivy League colleges are among

tens of thousands of anxious students log onto the schools’ websites to see if they have been accepted. Kwasi had already been accepted to Princeton in December, but he hoped to make the cut at a few more.
Brown: Yes. Columbia: Yes. Cornell: Yes. And the yesses kept coming. “I was like this can’t be happening.”
By session’s end, about 5 p.m., he had checked six Ivy League schools and then received an email at about 5:30 p.m. from Harvard a school he thought would never accept him.
“It has to be the one to reject me,” he said as he sat in his high school library Monday, still incredulous. “They’re Harvard.”
And if that was not enough, he also

Sigma Chi holds
successful Derby
Days philanthrophy
By Richard Garceau Contributing Writer
Bryant University’s Sigma Chi Fraternity chapter held its fourth annual Derby Days philanthropy event this past week. Derby Days involve teams of girls competing against one another in various events. Derby Days raised money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute, a cancer research facility and hospital.
This year has been Derby Days’ most successful year to date. The fraternity and

the nation’s most selective institutions of higher education. As an example of what Kwasi accomplished, Harvard has one of the lowest acceptance rates in the country at just 5.9 percent for the fall of 2014 2,023 students out of 34,295 applicants.
For Kwasi, applying to a competitive college wasn’t exactly a gamble. He has an SAT score of 2,250 out of 2,400, which places him in the 99th percentile for all students taking the exam. He has taken and scored high on many Advanced Placement exams. He is an athlete, a shot putter, in fact, and his baritone voice can belt out a tune when he’s not playing viola for the school orchestra.
Still, he said, “I’ve never heard of someone getting all eight.”
He has now surpassed the accomplishments of some of his uncles and cousins, who were accepted to several Ivies. “I always thought they were far better than me academically,” Kwasi said.
He began hearing from each of the schools on March 27, the date when

gained acceptance to Duke University, Stony Brook University, SUNY Geneseo and Binghamton University.
Administrators at William Floyd were proud but not surprised by Kwasi’s perfect Ivy League acceptance rate, saying he is an academic standout.
“You could see the potential that Kwasi had back then and to see it all come together is truly spectacular,” said Barbara Butler, principal of the school who also taught Kwasi for six years. “He has it all together he’s extremely intelligent, hardworking, well-rounded and humble.”
Ebenezer Enin, Kwasi’s father, a nurse, said Kwasi who wants to study medicine was raised, along with his sister, to strive for excellence.
“We are very proud of him,” he said. “He’s an amazing kid. He’s very humble. He’s been trained to be a high achiever right from when he was a kid. We have been encouraging him to be an all-around student. So far, he has proved himself.”

the teams raised over $6,000 for the Huntsman Cancer Institute. This year’s winning teams from the gold and blue divisions, Shark Bait and Team America respectively, were a strong part of that success with their hard work and determination.
Senior Delaney Carr, a member of Team America, explained, “Through Derby Days, our team was able to build stronger bonds with each other and the brothers of Sigma Chi, all while raising money for a great cause. As the

winning team, we will donate our 10% (of total proceeds) to a veteran’s fund because we are Team America, and we are very supportive of our troops. Most importantly, this experience allowed us to support some of our best friends on campus in their biggest philanthropy event of the year.”
The winning team is allotted a percentage of the total money raised for the charity of their choice to reward their success. The field was extremely competitive in each of the events for the nautical-themed Derby Days. New this year was, Sink Your Ship, based on the year’s theme. Teams earned points for launching water balloons at Sigma Chi fraternity brothers. Teams were given a set amount of water balloons, but were allowed to purchase more balloons to earn more points. The event raised over $250 in addition to over $1000 in online donations that day.
“I really enjoyed Sink Your Ship. It was a fun way to raise money for a good cause and the boys couldn’t retaliate,” said Shayla Keenan, a member of Team America.
Tyler Holden, this year’s Derby Daddy (the event coordinator) said, “I’m very proud of all the teams and their efforts. Our hard work has paid off with another successful year for Derby Days.”
Holden and Bryant’s Sigma Chi encourage everyone to donate to the Huntsman Cancer Institute if you would like to support the cause, or put together a team for next year’s Derby Days.

The Special Olymics at Bryant

The Special Olympics will return to Bryant for the 34th consecutive year

By Anna Mignon
Contributing Writer
Mark your calendars because the Special Olympics Northern Rhode Island Area Day of Games is just around the corner! For the 34th year, Bryant University will be hosting the Northern Rhode Island Olympic Games on campus. The Special Olympics event at Bryant University is an annual all day event where athletes and their teams will be competing for a chance to play at the state games at the University of Rhode Island. This year’s Day of Games will be very special because the day will be dedicated to an athlete, Stuart Gast, who recently passed away earlier in the year.
The Special Olympics is an international organization that features athletes with disabilities all over the world. The Special Olympics was founded in the mid 1970’s by Eunice Kennedy Shriver on behalf of her sister, Rosemary. There are many games all over the world. In each day of games, athletes with disabilities will compete in a wide variety of athletic events such as soccer, track and field, tennis, and even swimming. The day of games here at Bryant is focused more on track and field events, but we also have a volleyball tournament.
The games are scheduled for Saturday, May 3rd, 2014 and will be held at the track and football stadium on campus. This is a very exciting day at Bryant University because so many people come together for a great cause and a day of fun. The athletes that are competing, have spent all year working hard practicing their various track and field events in preparation for the day of games. Each year, there are about 600 athletes that compete in the day of games. The Special Olympics Committee at Bryant University helps support these athletes by planning the day of games and rounding up as many volunteers as possible. Last year there were about 500 volunteers and this year we are hoping for more.
The Special Olympics Day of Games is an extremely important event and we need your help! We welcome all volunteers to help out with this event. The Special Olympics Committee needs help from volunteers and the more we have, the better the day of games will be. Volunteering is

The 2013 - 2014 Special Olympics board. (Migena Dulaj)
also a good way to show support for Special Olympics. There are many different tasks that volunteers can help out with including help set up for the day of games, grilling hamburgers, and hotdogs for the athletes and their guests, timing track and field events, or even just standing at the finish line to cheer on the athletes. Anyone can be a volunteer and support Special Olympics.
The day of games at Bryant University can be a lot of fun. Not only are you helping a good cause but you can learn a lot from the athletes, and their families. The Day of Games is just around the corner and it is an event you do not want to miss. We welcome everyone and we can never have too many volunteers or supporters. If you cannot volunteer, you can still come see the games. The event will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by the track and football field. Come to cheer on the athletes and all the teams competing at the Day of Games. If you are interested in volunteering, we have two shifts for our volunteers. The morning shift is from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and the afternoon shift will be from 12:00 p.m.

to 4:00 p.m. You can even volunteer for both shifts. There will be an opportunity to sign up to volunteer
at our Kickoff Event in the rotunda on Monday, April 21st, 2014. The Special Olympics Committee will be in the Rotunda with music playing, sign-up sheets for volunteers, and cupcakes. Feel free to stop by to sign up to volunteer or learn more about the Day of Games. If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering for the Day of Games, you can contact Aubrey Mable at [email protected] for more information.
Additionally, you can support the Special OlympicsBryant University Day of Games by following our Twitter Account: @BryantSORI2014 or our Facebook page, “Special Olympics of Rhode Island – Bryant University” for more updates and information. Your support of the Special Olympics is greatly appreciated. Hope to see you at Kickoff in the rotunda on April 21st and at the Day of Games on May 3rd!

competition was a learning experience for all, and two of our members were even able to close the deal in the allotted 12 minutes.
Next came the Case Study Competition. Our members were given a prompt to come up with a target market and marketing campaign for Geico Auto Insurance. Our team presented in the preliminary round in front of two judges, but then had to present two more times as they made it to the Top Three teams out of seventeen. The other two teams were from University of Missouri and Ohio State University.
On Saturday evening, the convention was closed out with a banquet and awards presentation. It was here that it was announced that the Pi Sigma Epsilon 2015 National Convention will be hosted in Houston, Texas. Awards were also given out for projects, Top Chapters, the Pro-Am Sell-a-Thon, the Recruitment Challenge and the Case Competition. At the Awards ceremony, Bryant’s Case Study Competition team was awarded with second place, receiving a trophy and 500 dollars towards our chapter. We are so proud of our members that competed and participated this week. We would also like to say thank you to all those who have helped guide us and support us on our road to nationals.

iPhone 6 Preview
By Molly Funk Staff Writer

Just in case you have already gotten bored of your iPhone 5s, it seems as though Apple will be releasing yet another iPhone surely to be labelled the iPhone 6. What exactly can we expect from this new device? A bigger screen: There are a couple rumors centered on this topic. Some believe Apple will up its screen size to 4.7 inches. Others anticipate an iPhone-iPad hybrid, a device with A 5.5 to 5.7 inch screen. It is probable that the new iPhone will have increased retina display, which Apple measures by its viewing ability. The current iPhone has a viewing distance of 10 inches, whereas the current tablet has that of 15 inches. The iPhone 6 is reported to increase its retina display and thus viewing distance by a few inches. Sapphire screens: This is a theory that many brush off as simply too outrageous, however, it may carry some weight. GT Advanced has proven technology which utilizes sapphire to make smartphone screens indestructible. Coincidently enough, GT Advanced has signed a contract with Apple which has a facility in Arizona testing these durable screens. Now, Apple already uses sapphire technology to cover the camera lens and TouchID sensor on the iPhones, so it is not far-fetched that they expand the technology to the screen. Curved screens: A Bloomberg report in November revealed Apple is working on a curved glass that would bend down toward the edges of the phone with added sensors to detect different levels of pressure. This advancement would be able to detect light or heavy touch of the finger, thus allowing the phone to respond to direct intentional touches, versus light touches that may have been a mistake. Thinner body: As if your current iPhone isn’t slender enough, the iPhone 6 is guaranteed to be even slimmer. Rumors have surfaced that the iPhone 6 may in fact be dubbed the iPhone Air due to its trim shape. Along with this, another rumor stems the idea that the iPhone 6 may remove the home button. Instead, the iPhone would have a larger screen with less unusable space. In this case, the screen would have to include a touch sensitive area to replace the physical button, and a finger print reader built into the screen itself. Better Camera: It is acommon belief that the iPhone 6 will naturally have a better camera. Reports indicate the existing 8 megapixel camera could see improvements up to 13 megapixels. Many believe the iPhone 6 will have better image stabilization than its current abilities. The new camera will allegedly use new sensors that will capture clearer images due to its capacity to minimize color shifts. So when will we see this new iPhone? Traditionally Apple has kept new product announcements confined to the months of September or October. Many believe this tradition will continue while others expect the iPhone 6 to be announced as early as May or June this year.

Troubling data about talent management & succession
By Professor Michael Roberto Faculty Writer

Stanford’s David Larcker, Stephen Miles, and Brian Tayan have written a new article titled “Seven Myths of CEO Succession.” They cite some rather startling statistics about succession.
Each year, approximately 10 to 15 percent of companies change CEOs either because of retirement, recruitment to another firm, resignation following poor performance, or for health-related issues. For this reason, shareholders expect that companies have a chosen successor identified at all times to immediately assume the CEO position should the need arise. Unfortunately, research data indicates that this is often not the case. According to a 2010 study by Heidrick & Struggles and the Rock Center for Corporate Governance at Stanford University, only 54 percent of companies state that they are grooming a specific successor to the CEO position, and 39 percent claim to have no viable internal

candidates to permanently replace the CEO if required to do so immediately.
Wow... what an indictment of the leaders and the leadership development efforts at many companies! Nearly 4 of 10 firms report “no viable internal candidates.” The data raise some troubling questions. Are these firms not investing in leadership development efforts? Or, are they spending unwisely in their efforts to groom future leaders? Perhaps most importantly, are many firms not holding their senior executives, including the CEO, accountable for developing talented people who can assume top positions in the future?
CEOs and other top leaders should be held responsible for more than meeting financial and non-financial performance targets. They also need to be held accountable for talent development and succession. That part of their job helps to ensure the long term viability and success of the institution.

The college student’s guide to working smarter, not harder
By John Zeiner
Business Editor
As college students, we tend to think that we know everything there is to know about technology. Unfortunately, often times this techonology gets the better of us and we end up scrolling through Instagram or Twitter when we are supposed to be writing a paper. The abundance of available apps have made us less productive, if anything. The main purpose of smartphones, having a mobile device that allows one to work from anywhere, tends to be overlooked in its day-to-day use. In order to stay on top of things, you need the right tools for the job. So whether you are killing time in between class or on the road, here are a few tips that will help you stay productive, regardless of where you are. 1. Step up your note-taking game with Evernote. Evernote is the Michael Jordan of all note-taking apps. It allows you to keep everything in sync by making all notes, web clips, files and images available on every device and computer you use. When you stumble upon something cool while you’re out and about, take a picture, record some audio and save it. It also makes research easier than ever by collecting information from anywhere into a single place. From text notes to web pages to files and even snapshots, everything is always at your fingertips. As students who go to a school notorious for group projects, it is important to be able to work with friends and other peers. With Evernote you can share your notes and collaborate on projects with colleagues and classmates. In a time where we are constantly bombarded with information, it is important to keep it organized. Evernote allows for organization by keywords, tags, location, or date in conjunction with superior connectivity. It is available on every major device so you will never be without your notes.
2. Use Quickoffice to access Microsoft Office documents on the go. Quickoffice enables the user to read, create, or edit Office documents, no matter what device you are using. This will be very useful in making quick changes to papers right before they are due. Although it does not have the same capabilities of the full Office suite, Quickoffice is extremely useful when you need access to an Excel, PowerPoint, or Word document away from the computer. Google acquired the company in June 2012 and re-released it as a free app in September 2013. This allows all students to use their bryant.edu account and have access to all their Google Drive files as well.
3. Speaking of Google, never be late to another meeting or interview with the Google Now app. Instead of checking a plethora of apps, Google Now reminds you of important things with a simple glance or notification. They want you to get just the right information at just the right time. It provides you with the weather before you start your day, the best route to take to avoid traffic, or even your favorite team’s score while they are playing. Google Now operates in the background so you don’t have to. Your specific information is automatically organized into simple cards that appear just when they’re needed. To put it simply, Google Now delivers the information you care about, without having to search for it and exactly when you want it.
4. Use Keeper Password & DataVault to manage and secure your passwords. Now more than ever it is imperative to stay on top of all your online account information. With the excessive number of different account usernames and passwords we have, it is important to keep everything secure. If you are not using a password manager, chances are your passwords aren’t secure and secure passwords are your first defense against identity theft. Keeper Password & DataVault will store all your passwords securely so you can access them from any device. This comes in handy considering the fact that creating new passwords and remembering them across all devices is immensely difficult to do.
5. Blur the lines between on-the-go file access and local desktop access with Google Drive As a Bryant student, this is undoubtedly one of the most used apps by all students. All group projects begin synonymously with “Alright, I’ll make a Google doc.” Instead of having to keep track of the lastest versions of files and collaborate with co-workers via email, use cloud-based Google Drive to make real time edits that everyone has acess to, regardless of what device they are using. This app makes collaboration a breeze while simultaneously having the greatest accessibility and ease of use out of any app on the market.

Behind the camera

of Bryant Sports

By Ryan Bizier Contributing Writer
For the parent who cannot make the 3 hour drive to the Bryant campus, for the roommate who cannot make the 3 minute walk to the gym in the rain, the Bryant Sports Network is there to ensure that those who are unable to cheer on Bryant Athletics in person can still watch.
‘Needless to say, juggling all of this is no easy
task. For Anderson, one mishap could mean that countless people could miss big moments such as a buzzer beating three
pointer, or a walk-off homerun.’
With a simple laptop and internet connection, anyone can watch the Bulldogs compete from the comfort of their dorm room.
Just how much preparation and hard work goes into webcasting these sporting events? Anyone who has ever played competitive collegiate sports knows that a substantial amount of practice and hard work goes into getting ready to compete. Not many people however, know just how much work goes into webcasting sporting events for the general public to see.
For Luke Anderson, Director of New Media, this work includes hours of setting up camera and computer equipment before games, followed by hours of editing of footage after games to be uploaded to the Bryant Athletics YouTube page.
Most spectators begin rolling into sporting events 20-30 minutes before the contests begin. Anderson on the other hand typically arrives anywhere from 1-3 hours before game time in order to set up the equipment needed to broadcast online to those who cannot be in attendance.

Anderson, who is in his first year of working for the Bryant Sports Network, is tasked with performing a variety of duties. These duties include performing post-game interviews, maintaining the Bryant Athletics YouTube page, shooting B-roll footage, editing highlights and occasionally providing color c om me nt a r y.
Needless to say, juggling all of this is no easy task. For Anderson, one mishap could mean that countless people could miss big moments such as a buzzer beating three pointer, or a walk-off homerun. Despite the stress that comes with the job, Anderson notes that his passion for sports keeps his enjoyment within the work.
“Being one person managing everything can be stressful at times, but being around sports and working with my friends makes this job worth it.”
Another important job of Anderson’s is overseeing the Bryant Sports Network’s student workers. Employed are 12-15 part-time students who are taught first-hand how to operate camera equipment, direct, and provide graphics as well as color commentary to every heart stopping moment of Bryant Athletics.
Typically three to four students work each sporting event. Basketball games usually require two students on camera with another on instant replay duty along with a fourth on director duty. Some events however, like Lacrosse only require 2-3 workers.
Camera duty for student workers is straight forward and only requires following where the action is occurring on the court or field. Director duty is far more taxing as it involves updating graphics with scoring changes, switching between cameras, and deciding what commercials to cut to and when.
“The skills that the students pick up on the job help them stand out a lot to future employers, some of which could even be NESN or ESPN.”
During long weekends and school vacations, the Bryant Sports Network occasionally finds itself short staffed. After many students migrate home for breaks Anderson is forced to perform multiple tasks at once, making the execution all the more important.
It is easy to overlook the little people when being entertained. When the crowd is cheering and the music is taking over the room, it is easy to forget that there are people working to make sure that everyone enjoys the ride. So the next time you find yourself tuning into a sporting event on television or through a webcast, just remember someone is standing there through the wind and rain holding a camera.

Bulldogs’ Softball Team
deserves recognition
By Justin Beaucage Sports Editor
With so much attention on some of the other teams at Bryant, some of the Bulldogs sports teams go under the radar. The Bulldogs’ softball team has truly been the underdog story this season. However, with their play recently, under the radar is the last place this team should be in.
The Bulldogs’ softball team has not just been one of the best teams on campus, but they have shown they are one of the best teams in the conference. The team is 22-15 on the season, including an 8-2 record in the conference. The Bulldogs are also one of the best teams at home, with an 8-2 record at Bulldogs Stadium. The team enjoyed a seven game winning streak, and has won nine of the last twelve games. They have certainly shown they are one of the best teams in the conference, and will look to keep playing at this high level for the rest of the season heading into the tournament.
Elle Madsen pitching (MCT Campus)
The team has really stepped up to the plate and been one of the best hitting teams in the NEC. In 37 games this year, they have scored 186 runs, including 30 homeruns. They are hitting a phenomenal .303 from the plate, and have an on base percentage of over .470. Clearly, getting on base is one of the strong points for the Bulldogs, and has led them to becoming one of the best offenses in the conference.
Junior outfielder Madeline Velasquez has been one of the leaders for the Bulldogs this year. As the leader at the plate, Velasquez has hit .339 and leads the team with 30 RBIs. Senior shortstop Aubrey Mable is one of the best hitters on the team, saving one of her best seasons for last with the Bulldogs. She is batting .374 on the year, leading the team. Sophomore pitcher Elle Madsen has gotten it done from the plate as well. She leads the team in homeruns with 11. The Bulldogs pride themselves on their hitting, and they are one of the best teams doing it.
One of the other reasons for their success this year has been their pitching. With her success at the plate, Madsen has been dominant from the mound this year for the Bulldogs. She has struck out 107 batters, and has an ERA of 2.87. Sophomore pitcher Haley Bottino has really had a stellar season from the mound this year. In just 30 innings, she has 10 strikeouts and even has a complete game. The success from the mound has not only helped the Bulldogs stay in games, but has also made fewer opportunities for the defense to make plays in the field.
Even if the Bulldogs were giving up hits from the mound, they are still one of the better defensive teams in the conference. Their fielding percentage is about .10 higher than their opponents. With stellar pitching and great defense behind it, there aren’t many scoring opportunities for opponents, which is why the Bulldogs have been so successful this year.
The combination of great pitching, hitting, and defense has led the Bulldogs to being one of the best teams in the conference. There will be plenty of chances for the team to improve even more, with plenty more conference opponents left to play. The team can still make sure the rest of the conference knows they are serious competitors.
The Bulldogs’ next test will be against URI Wednesday in Kingston. Following the one game, the team will play conference rival Robert Morris in New York for two games. The Bulldogs will look to continue their dominance not just in the conference, but to show they are competitors to the rest of the league.

Bruins v. Red Wings
The teams will face off in the first round of the Stanley Cup

By Mark Gallant
Staff Writer
The Red Wings have clinched the 8th seed in the eastern conference and will be taking on the Bruins in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. A mix of young and old for Detroit has given the Bruins problems this year, but the Presidents’ Trophy winning team won’t go down easy.
After winning the first game of the season series 4-1, Boston dropped three straight to the Wings despite their injury problems. Captain Henrik Zetterberg has only played in 45 games due to a back injury and the highly skilled Pavel Datsyuk has only played 45 as well. It appears that Zetterberg won’t be ready for the series opener, but there’s a chance he could return in the later games if this one goes the distance.

with 19 goals, but has also gone cold since Datsyuk’s return. However, the Red Wings are plenty deep and have the ability to score on all four lines, similar to the Bruins. The addition of David Legwand at the trade deadline has proven to be a smart move, as the exlifelong Predator has put up 11 points in 21 games since joining the team.
For the Bruins, the key will be for the defense to keep up with Detroit’s speed. The Detroit forwards are exceptionally quick and skilled and must be slowed down in transition in order to be stopped. The Bruins shouldn’t have a terrible time scoring themselves, especially if their top three lines come out hot. The Carl SoderbergLoui Eriksson Swedish connection could be the x-factor in the series, as they have looked pretty darn good the last few weeks. Definitely one of, if

Most talked about:

Johnny Manziel

By Justin Beaucage
Sports Editor
He’s one of the most exciting college prospects in recent drafts. He is the most captivating, polarizing, and highlight reel making quarterback in the NFL Draft. Johnny Manziel is certainty the most talked about NFL prospect in this year’s draft. Always tending to make headlines on and off the field, Manziel is

of the fastest forty yard dashes among quarterbacks, but he also dressed in full pads for his pro day, something that is unheard of. With all of his gear on, he performed and threw better than most of the other quarterbacks. He has certainly gone out of his way to silence all the critics.
There have been plenty of teams that have been impressed by Manziel’s efforts this offseason. The Oakland

Goaltender Jimmy Howard has missed some time and hasn’t played his best when he is in net either. His .910 save percentage and 2.66 GAA are both his lowest since the 2010-11 season.
The real story for Detroit has been their young guns who have filled in for their ailing stars. Gustav Nyquist has been as hot as anyone since late January, scoring 23 of his 28 goals since January 20th. However, after scoring 12 goals in ten games before Pavel Datsyuk’s return, the 24-year-old has not potted one in the past six games when the Magic Man has been in the lineup. Hopefully for the Bruins, Nyquist will stay cold for the next couple weeks.
Another strong youngster has been Thomas Tatar, who finished the season

not the best, third line in the league, especially if Eriksson can play up to his potential.
This definitely won’t be an easy first series for Boston. Obviously, there has been some extremely entertaining first round series for the Bruins (see Bruins vs. Montreal 2011 and Bruins vs. Maple Leafs 2013) and this one is shaping up to be another barn-burner. On paper, this Red Wings team could easily be a three or four seed rather than an eight. The Bruins haven’t won a game in Detroit since 2007, so they will need to come out of the gates strong and take the first two at home. If they can win one game away, they should be able to take this one.

Johnny Manziel player to watch (MCT Campus)

also one of the more scrutinized players to be scouted. To go with ankle breaking jukes and long throws down the field, he is best known for partying, drinking, and other antics. This has made him one of the more controversial players in recent drafts.
Yes, he is an enigma. He’s exciting, breath-taking, and a super-ego, just to describe Manziel in a few words.
However, as of late, he seems to have taken a turn, and one could add mature and humble to that description.
Has Johnny “Football” finally figured out how to be a professional athlete? The former Texas A&M quarterback, who could be seen getting in defender’s faces, taunting opponents, or celebrating touchdowns, has gone from a flashy diva to a confident, mature quarterback. In this draft process, from the combine to his pro day, Manziel has take the leadership role, presenting himself as someone who can lead a franchise. He has answered interview questions up front, showed off all of his talents, and taken his work extremely seriously. He has made the headlines for more good news than bad.
It certainly has been quite the draft process for Manziel. Not only did he silence critics by running one

Raiders, Cleveland Browns, and Tampa Bay Buccanneers have all said they were impressed by the humble quarterback. It certainly seems like Manziel, on and off the field, is a great prospect.
There is still doubt that Manziel can keep up this leadership and persona. However, it’s great to see he has adjusted his antics away from the game to make himself into a better prospect. There was never a question of Manziel’s talents on the field. There hasn’t been a player with his combination of arm strength, mobility, and finesse in college football for quite some time. There were always doubts about his actions between plays or after games, as it created much doubt for how legitimate of a player he really was. With the way he has treated this draft process, he is certainly proving he can be a leader of a franchise.
There is still a month to go until the draft, and there is still time for Manziel to either improve his stock, or to watch it fall by doing something off the field. Manziel is projected to be a top-ten pick, and could even go number one overall still. If Manziel can carry over his talents from college and still continue his leadership role, there is no reason he shouldn’t be the first pick in the NFL Draft.

Watson wins
Masters for
second time
By Justin Beaucage Sports Editor
When Bubba Watson won his first Masters two years ago, he completed what was one of the most improbable tournament wins in golfing history. At such a young age, Watson wasn’t supposed to stand a chance against the field. However, he completed what was one of the most remarkable tournament wins in history, winning the most important tournament in the golfing season. All Watson knew was he didn’t want this to be his only championship, as he knew he wanted to earn one of golf’s most prestigious honors.
Watson didn’t wait too long, as he earned his second Masters Tournament win in three years this past weekend.

More bad boys of the league: Should

the 49ers cut Aldon Smith loose?

By Matt Gillen
Marketing & Business Director
I made a crucial mistake in my NFL article last week. You really can’t talk about illegal behavior by players in the NFL without bringing up Aldon Smith’s name. The 49ers starting outside linebacker is always in the limelight. Half of the time for his exceptional play on the field, the other half for his exceptional ability to break the law and get caught.
Smith was just arrested for the fourth time in the past 18 months. In that short time, in between racking up sacks, the player racked up two DUIs, three felony accounts of possession of an illegal assault weapon and was arrested just this Sunday, April 13th for giving a false bomb threat after being selected to be searched by TSA officers at LAX airport.
According to LAX Police Sgt. Karla Ortiz, Smith was selected for a secondary screening and once they finished he asked if they needed to search him anymore. When the officer said that it wasn’t necessary he calmly replied, “Why not? I have a bomb”. It was all over from there; he was arrested on the spot. As funny as Smith and you or I might find that comment, as it seems quite obvious that a professional football player would not be bringing a bomb into an airport – or admit to it – the TSA has to take every threat seriously in order to keep people safe. Smith was already on thin ice after receiving his second DUI arrest in the middle of the 2013 season and then entered rehab for alcohol abuse, missing 5 games. Currently Smith is still facing charges for the drunk driving, and illegal weapons arrests.
So, the big picture here is that Aldon Smith is a phenomenal

player and huge staple of San Francisco’s widely feared defense, and also the biggest liability on the team at this point. With only one, optional year left on his contract with the team it will be interesting to see if they take a page from the Eagles book and cut him loose now. The guy is a ticking time bomb, as are a lot of these young players who got too much money and too much fame too fast. Touching on a deeper issue, as inexcusable as his behavior is, Smith is only 24 years old. It seems very clear that the system is partly to blame for all of these off the field issues.
Maybe the system is flawed, but it does have procedures in place to prevent this kind of thing to happening. Every player submits to a Human Resource Tactics (HRT) report before being drafted in the NFL. Smith’s in 2011 warned potential teams about his susceptibility to trouble. When referring to Smith the report directly stated, “He has some past experience with getting into trouble and is a higher-than-average risk for this sort of behavior in the future”. I’m not sure how much brighter and bigger the red flag has to get. On top of that the HRT reported multiple times on how potentially lazy the linebacker would be.
The 49ers saw this report, read it, contemplated and talked about the implications and then disregarded it and signed the young head case. With that information we can accurately say that the 49ers organization is to blame for any backlash and negative image that rains down on them after this incident. San Francisco showed through their actions that they valued skill and winning games over dedication and integrity, and now here they are. Again, we hope that teams will take note of this example and send players like Aldon Smith somewhere terrible like the Raiders or the CFL.

Bubba Watson receiving his green jacket
In what was a competitive tournament the entire weekend, Watson really ran away with his second Masters victory. On the final day of competition, he shot a -69, the same score he had in 2012 when he won the tournament, despite some competition from Spieth, Watson went back-to-back birdies on eighth and ninth hole. On the back 9, Watson secured the victory on No. 13 when he fired the drive a whopping 366 yards, and tapped in the birdie. From there on, it was Watson’s title to lose, as he cruised to his second Masters championship in three years.
With his tournament win, Watson becomes just the eighth golfer two win two masters in three years. He is also the seventeenth golfer to win multiple masters championships. Clearly, this is quite an honor for Watson, as he has secured his spot as one of the best golfers on the green today.
Watson admits he might have lost focus in pursuit of his second Masters championship. He said that, during the last couple of holes, he really lost track and didn’t remember how he managed to do so well. He said he got into a zone that he really couldn’t get out of, and that’s what helped him concentrate on winning his second masters title.
He also said that he felt he earned this second masters tournament championship more than the first one. He said the first one seemed unplanned and unexpected, as he didn’t really anticipate winning the award. However, Watson said, this year, he worked extremely hard and was very focused on developing his game and preparing for this event. He said when Adam Scott won the tournament last year, he really wanted to make sure he was back on that stage the next tournament, and wanted to make sure he was the best golfer in the tournament. Clearly, his hard work paid off, as he cruised through the field and certainly deserved the honor.
Of course, many will argue the only reason Watson was able to win this tournament was because of the lack of competition in the field, especially with Tiger Woods missing the tournament. He recently had to withdraw due to injury. However, he hasn’t really been as competitive and dominant in recent golf seasons, as many of the younger golfers, including Watson, have made their own impact on the game and won their own majors. Watson was simply just prepared more for this tournament, as he was clearly the best golfer in what has always been a tough tournament to win.
So, congratulations to Watson for his fantastic win, and hopefully he can repeat his success next season.
