The Process is Starting to Pay Off

By Colten Hagadus

Back in 2013, the Philadelphia 76ers hired a man by the name of Sam Hinkie. Lets just say that Sam had a plan, a plan to be great, but it was going to take some time. This plan was called The Process. The Process started when the team traded all star point guard Jrue Holiday for a first round pick, which ended up turning into Nerlens Noel. Hinkie is an analytics guy and believed that the more picks he accumulated, the better chance he had at finding star players. Continue reading “The Process is Starting to Pay Off”

By Colten Hagadus

 

The 2017-2018 Philadelphia 76ers were projected to be an average team and barely sneak into the playoffs as an 8 seed.

Post-Weinstein Universe

By Lindsey Diamond

Tensions in Hollywood are high as sexual assault allegations are more apparent than ever. In October 2017, Harvey Weinstein was first accused of sexual harassment by two actresses, Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd. Resulting in the sexual allegations, Weinstein was terminated from his company. Many other women built the confidence and came forward with their stories of harassment and assault regarding Weinstein. After the Weinstein scandal, above 50 workers in Hollywood have been terminated due to sexual misconduct accusations, such as Matt Lauer, Kevin Spacey, and Danny Masterson. Since then, many topics of discussions arose about women coming forward with assault, what punishment is appropriate for those who commit these crimes, and if one can still support an actor’s work without necessarily supporting the actor.
