Festival fever spreads deception like wildfyre
02/21/2019 8:00am

By Nabhanya Morarji Netflixs latest documentary, Fyre Festival, was released Jan. 18 and caught the attention of viewers worldwide. Fyre Festival was originally supposed to be a promotional event for an app called Fyre, created by entrepreneur Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, that enabled users to book artists for private concerts. It was meant to be the music festival to end all music festivals. In McFarlands own words, Its going to be the biggest event of the decade. I promise you. There was one question that kept coming to mind while I watched Fyre Festival how shallow are we, as a generation, to be buying into this People literally spent thousands of dollars on passes alone and they spent even more to get access to more activities that were advertised, but never delivered, by Fyre Festival. With the help of a solid marketing and advertising team, Fyre Festival became the biggest event that never happened of 2017. Anyone that was someone was going to be there. This gave attendees the impression it would be an exclusive V.I.P event. The promotional video for Fyre Festival featured top models and influencers such as Hailey Baldwin now Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid ...

Dirty Laundry: Spartans hit their way to a series sweep
02/21/2019 8:00am

By Reese Williams The UT Spartans are going to be a scary team if they continue to play like this. Between their power and very strong pitching staff this could be the dominant team in all of Division II baseball this year. From Feb.15-17, UT had their home opener against the LIU Post Pioneers. The major story surrounding the team this week is whether Bo Weiss, a junior pitcher, will finally be ready to get a full start. Last weekend, Feb. 8-10, the Spartans would go on to beat Georgia College in a 4 game sweep. Weiss ended up starting the fourth game of the series, but got pull after only one inning. In that game he allowed four hits, two earned runs and struck out two batters. This was definitely a game used to get Weiss back in the rotation and get him used to playing again after his injury. In game one of the series, the Spartans went onto rout the pioneers by a score of 9-1. Keven Pimentel, a senior pitcher, was dominant on the mound and picked up his second win of the season. Pimentel ended up going 6.0 innings, with six strikeouts, two hits, one ...

Remembering Ishmael Perkins
02/21/2019 8:00am

By Ana Braccialli Every game, Ishmael Perkins, the mens basketball teams 22-year-old manager, would be on the sideline of the UT basketball team, right next to the bench, with his iPad to keep his own stats of the match. It was a classic scene that you would see in most of the games, said Alcibiades Pereira, senior international business major. I go to every home game, and Ishmael would be there watching the match and making his notes. It was fun to watch his interaction with the team and the respect that the team had for him. Perkins was not a typical member of the team. With a lot of positive energy, he would bright everyones day with kindness, motivation and support for the team. On Feb. 7, Perkins died due to muscular dystrophy. Ishmael was a pleasure to work with. He always had a smile on his face, said Justin Pecka, associate head coach of the mens basketball team. He was always excited to be on the court, in the film room, and in the locker room. Smile is the word that best describes Perkins. According to Vincent Biffle, junior guard, he was a positive influence and always kept ...

One year later: UT in the aftermath of Parkland
02/21/2019 8:00am

By Sydney Rhodes & Briana DeTuro Alex Martinez, freshman international business major, hid between the seats of an auditorium with his backpack above his head as he heard screams from outside the glass doors. He then began to send messages to his family and close friends as he sat in a room of fellow peers who were crying and talking quietly on their phones. I just remember praying at that time and thinking to myself I just want to be able to walk into my house again, to be able hug my mom again and play with my siblings again. The thought of not being able to do that again really scared me, said Martinez. After an hour went by, the students heard banging from outside the auditorium doors and the room went silent. The SWAT team then busted into the room and shouted out instructions. Last year on Feb. 14, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL went into a lockdown after a fire alarm had been pulled and student Nikolas Cruz opened fire. The shooting left 17 students and faculty members dead and 17 others injured. Although the tragic event left many in mourning, the Parkland shooting ...

Two Spartans strive for social justice awareness on campus
02/21/2019 8:00am

by Sydney Rhodes On Feb. 9, two UT students tackled ideas covering social issues and social justice to win the PITCH by CAMPUSPEAK Competition at the AFLV Central Conference in Indianapolis, IN. This competition holds an opportunity for students to formulate new ideas and pitch their proposal in order to make an impact on their campus. Ten teams were accepted into the competition and each team were able to work toward creating a ten minute pitch to present in front of judges. AJ Sita, sophomore international business and entrepreneurship major, and Liz Ho-Sing-Loy-Keiler, junior history major, worked as a team to touch on the key topics regarding both mental health and social justice awareness on UTs campus. Through our pitch, we hoped to shed light on how the programs that CAMPUSPEAK provided could aid students in awareness of intersectionality of social issues we all are sometimes faced with, as well as feeling comfortable enough to seek help for these obstacles said Sita. CAMPUSPEAK allows teams to use resources like classes and seminars that help better students pitching skills and to create a comprehensive approach for the competition. Sita said, after discussing the hot topics on campus and society with Ho-Sing-Loy-Keiler, ...
