Creating rainbows from Laredo to Philadelphia By Alejandra PeÑaBridge contributing writer Published March 30, 2020 With a couple of solutions, the formation of a rainbow was expected to lead the TAMIU Chemistry Club to victory in its visit to the American Chemical Society National Meeting.

The conference was scheduled from March 22 to 26. It would have been the third consecutive year for the University’s organization. They expected to bring back an award. “The Ch...

Many people that have social sites are frequently logging in every few minutes, but they are not aware of how much time they are spending on the social sites, and that is alarming.

Forget the ‘Gators; Python Population

by Rodrigo Marina The American Crocodiles and the American Alligators had been the dominant predators in the Everglades National park at the southern tip of Florida since it was established.  However, in 1975, the American Crocodile species was declared endangered due to the popularity of its hide and other products.  Numbers were dramatically low during that time, with less than 300 alligators accounted for.  In 1979, a new species started to make its way into The Everglades.

Beat it Mars, We’re Moving to Proxima B

By Jonathan Ramos Sorry Matt Damon, but looks like you’re the First and only Martian we earthlings will ever need, as if the release of Suicide Squad wasn’t enough to fill my nerd heart with joy last month. Scientists discovered a new planet that could potentially be habitable. Leaving many people, myself included; to reconsider our modifications to reduce our carbon footprint.
