Tufts rebounded from Saturday’s narrow 3-2 defeat at Middlebury to defeat Endicott 4-0 in Tufts’ penultimate home game of the season on Tuesday.

NESCAC lead at stake as Jumbos travel to face Bantams

“History doesn’t repeat itself,” Mark Twain reportedly once said, “but it does rhyme.” The upcoming game between the Tufts Jumbos (3-0) and the Trinity Bantams (3-0) evokes a sense of déjà vu. In 2016, as in 2015, the pair enter week four with perfect records, competing for a spot atop the NESCAC. The Jumbos will be going into […]

Op-Ed: Is “sex positivity” really positive?

The third wave of feminism, particularly its ongoing transition into the “fourth wave,” has been an interesting time. It has brought an awareness of the intersectionality between gender, sex, race, sexual orientation and class. It has attempted to dismantle the exclusionary elements of trans-exclusionary radical feminism (TERF) movements that occurred in the second wave; it has […]

All in Good Taste: Thelonious Monkfish

I am excited for another opportunity to visit the jazz-themed Asian fusion restaurant, despite its slightly hectic atmosphere. The restaurant is perpetually dark, and we are always greeted by the sound of a piano and trumpet playing live from one room over. Though on multiple occasions I have experienced almost infuriating wait times, even after making […]

Point-Counterpoint: Legalizing marijuana in Massachusetts

The following responses, written by the Daily’s Opinion section, address two sides of the debate on marijuana legalization in the state of Massachusetts. The Massachusetts Marijuana Legalization Initiative, or ballot Question 4, would legalize marijuana for recreational use and create a regulatory system for taxation and commerce. Question 4 will appear on […]

ExCollege Professor Norah Dooley discusses climate change, pipelines and the power of storytelling

Despite the intensity with which Norah Dooley discusses her outrage toward climate change, she manages to slip in hand gestures and punctuate her speech with facial expressions in an extraordinarily subtle manner. She is a storyteller and an activist. Dooley teaches storytelling at Tufts’ Experimental College and at Lesley University, as well as in K-12th grade classrooms and in Alzheimer’s […]

Maintaining Your Tuftsanity: Changeup time

Electronics have never been up my alley. Not even relatively close to my alley if I’m being honest; they’re more in a completely different city. My butter-fingers have made sure of that. I’ve dropped a camera lens-down into sand and lost many an iPhone to all of the accidents not covered by the protection plan. […]

Vinny’s Variety Pack: Dak dynasty

Another eventful week of football is behind us. In case you missed it, here’s a quick recap: Brady is back, the Giants still suck, the Falcons are actual contenders, the Giants are terrible, the Vikings are the scariest team in football and the Giants gave me a stomach ulcer. *Sigh* Ah, well. Here’s to hoping this […]

Jumbos tack on three more wins, extend streak to seven
