Terrier Icemen Take First Round of Beanpot Defeat Crimson 3-1

BU owned the first two periods, BU owned the crowd, and BU ultimately owned the night.

The number-one-ranked team in the nation lived up to its billing Monday night, as the Boston University Terrier icemen took down the Harvard Crimson in the first round of the 60th annual Beanpot tournament at Boston’s TD Garden.

The game marked the second time the Terriers beat the Crimson this season, improving their overall record to 17-8-1. BU remains in sole possession of first place in Hockey East and will face Boston College next Monday night, as the Terriers go after an unprecedented 30th Beanpot championship.

BU struck first in the game when forward Matt Nieto (CGS’12) beat Harvard goalie Steve Michalek on a wrap-around goal with 8:14 gone in the first period. Assistant captain Alex Chiasson (CAS’13) and defender Sean Escobedo (SMG’13) earned assists on the goal. Nieto has emerged as a significant offensive force for the Terriers. He had an 8-game goal streak earlier in the season and went into the game tied for first on the team with 26 points.

Despite a disappointing season, the Crimson entered last night’s game leading the nation in power play efficiency, converting on 30.8 percent of their chances. The Terriers tested fate when forward Evan Rodrigues (SMG’15) went to the box for boarding at 9:12, but Harvard was unable to score, thanks in large part to an excellent play by Chiasson, who dove to the ice to block a shot as the power play expired.

Harvard gave BU plenty of opportunities to extend its lead in the second half of the period, handing over three power plays. The Terriers first failed to convert when Crimson forward Rence Coassin went to the box at 11:55 for hitting from behind, although Sahir Gill (CGS’12) and Wade Megan (CGS’11, MET’13) made strong bids.

Crimson junior forward Marshall Everson then gave the Terriers more chances by committing two penalties in under three minutes—for interference at 14:19 and then for hitting from behind at 16:25.

Not only did the Terriers fail to convert on either power play, but they nearly allowed Harvard to score its first shorthanded goal of the season. Crimson forward Colin Blackwell had a breakaway opportunity after a turnover in the neutral zone, but standout goalie Kieran Millan (MET’12) made a highlight-reel kick save, keeping Harvard off the scoreboard with just over two left to play in the first.

“We were in the box far too often in the first half of the game,” said Harvard head coach Ted Donato, “and Millan made it awful tough for us to get back into it.”

Terrier head coach Jack Parker (SMG’68, Hon.’97) agreed, noting that neither team played up to its ability. “I don’t think that either team played their best game tonight,” he said. “We acted like we were very frustrated that we weren’t playing better, and we continued to act very frustrated.”

Play by both teams became even sloppier in the second period, as Harvard committed three more penalties and BU four.

Megan earned the game’s first power play goal at 7:30 of the second, beating Michalek with just nine seconds remaining on the Terrier power play. Gill and Escobedo were credited with assists.

Megan was just getting started, though, scoring his 2nd goal of the game and 14th of the season at the 14:02 mark. Line mate Gill assisted again, for his 2nd of the game and 13th on the year.

The Terriers’ three-goal lead proved short-lived, however. Just after defender Ryan Santana (CAS’13) went to the penalty box for cross-checking at 14:48, Chiasson turned the puck over in the Terriers’ zone. That allowed Crimson assistant captain Alex Killorn to put Harvard on the board at 15:27, beating Millan to his right for a 3-1 BU lead. That goal marked the 15th of the year for the Crimson’s leading scorer.

With 16:15 gone, Harvard pulled Michalek in favor of sophomore goaltender Raphael Girard, much to the delight of the predominantly BU-friendly crowd. The Crimson were barraged with taunts of “grade inflation” and “safety school” all night, playing in front of what seemed to be a Terrier home crowd.

After a comparatively uneventful third period, Harvard put plenty of pressure on Millan late in the game. The Terrier goalie, who entered the game with a .923 save percentage, was up to the task, keeping Harvard off the board and cementing BU’s 3-1 victory.

This year is the first time since 2007 that both the BU men’s and women’s ice hockey teams will play in Beanpot championship games. The men beat BC that year, and the women fell to Harvard.

The Boston College Eagles defeated the Northeastern Huskies in last night’s second first round game by a score of 7-1, making BC the team to beat in next Monday’s Beanpot championship.

BU and BC last squared off on December 3, with the Terriers falling 6-1.

Now the other Comm Ave team is all that stands in the way of the Terriers’ 30th Beanpot title in program history.

As Women’s Hockey Prepares for the Beanpot, Terrier Senior Captain Reflects on the Season Kaleigh Donnelly on the team’s strong showing, the end of her BU career, and what the future holds

Kaleigh Donnelly has seen it all in her four years with BU women’s hockey, from the highs of winning the 2023 Beanpot to the lows of two first-round playoff exits. This year, the Terriers are 9-8-4 overall and 8-5-3 in conference play, consistently placing as one of the top teams in the Hockey East standings.

As team captain and one of eight seniors on the roster, Donnelly (CAS’22) has played the fifth-most games (98), recorded the third-most points (42), and tallied the most assists (36) among the current Terriers. Moving into the second half of her final BU season, she says she hopes that the best is yet to come.

BU Today spoke with Donnelly about the team’s bounce-back season from a 6-6 record last year, the players who have driven their success, her BU career on the ice, and her goals for the future. 



A with Kaleigh Donnelly

BU Today:

After being an assistant captain last season, what has it been like being captain this year?

Kaleigh Donnelly: So far, it’s been pretty good. I got pretty lucky with the girls on the team—they make my job very easy. I’ve enjoyed every second of it.

BU Today:

Most teams name multiple captains or assistant captains, but you’re the only one on this year’s team. Have other teammates stepped up to support you in that role?

Kaleigh Donnelly: Definitely, especially my senior classmates. They’ve really helped me behind the scenes and working on things that maybe you don’t see on the ice.

BU Today:

One of them is Courtney Correia (CGS’20, Questrom’22), whose 8 goals, 8 assists, and 16 points lead the team and rank her among the top-10 players in Hockey East. What can you say about the way she has played this year?

Kaleigh Donnelly: I think everyone’s really excited about how well Courtney’s doing. She really takes the team in her own hands some games and gets those points for us. I think we really look to her when we need a goal.

BU Today:

Another noteworthy senior, Kate Stuart (CAS’22), a first-choice goalie for the first time in her career, has the fifth-best save percentage (.926) of Hockey East goalies in conference play. What have you seen from her this season?

Kaleigh Donnelly: Kate has always been really good, and I think all her hard work for the past three years has paid off with her starting role this year. Last weekend, she stopped almost 50 shots against Northeastern and kept us in that game. That’s just one example of her talent.

BU Today:

A number of underclassmen have also contributed significantly: Christina Vote (CAS’25), Catherine Foulem (CAS’24), and Julia Shaunessy (CAS’24) each rank among the program’s top-10 skaters in goals and points this year. What’s it been like watching them develop?

Kaleigh Donnelly: I love watching them play, and I especially love playing with them. They’re even better kids off the ice, which I think helps the dynamic of the team. It was super important for the underclassmen to step up since we do have a pretty young team.

BU Today:

Your team went unbeaten in its first seven conference games and has remained near the top of the league all season. What do you attribute that success to?

I think it really transfers from off the ice. We’re a really close team, and we all really respect each other as individuals, which I think transfers to on the ice and respecting ourselves as teammates and working well together.

BU Today:

Two of your best games so far were a 2-1 win over then–No. 2 Northeastern October 8 and a 5-4 win over Boston College November 21. Do those victories give your team confidence going into the Beanpot on February 1?

Oh, definitely. I think what’s different this year than previous years is that we know we can beat them now, and I think that confidence will help us in the tournament.

BU Today:

As playoffs approach, what do you anticipate for the team?

Especially now with everyone playing at their best, especially our goalies, I think the potential is endless. I see us going pretty far and I hope that we do.

BU Today:

As you complete your biology degree, what are your post-Commencement plans?

I’m planning on working at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in a clinical research coordinator role, so I’m pretty excited about that.

BU Today:

And do you think more hockey is in your future?

It’s definitely something to figure out down the road, but I did just talk to Karilyn Pilch (Questrom’09,’19) [former director of hockey operations at BU]—she used to be general manager with the Premier Hockey Federation’s Boston Pride [she’s now a scout for the Chicago Blackhawks]. So there’s definitely a possibility.

BU Today:

Finally, do you have any favorite memories from your four-year career with the Terriers?

One memory definitely stands out—my freshman year when we won the Beanpot. I was lucky enough to be on the ice in overtime and when Sammy [Davis] (CGS’17, Sargent’19, Wheelock’20) put that in. It was definitely the best moment of my career.

The BU women’s hockey team’s next game is a rematch with No. 3 Northeastern at Matthews Arena on Friday, January 21, at 4 pm. The game can be streamed on chúng tôi and followed via @BUGameDay on Twitter. Fans can keep up with the team on chúng tôi and @TerrierWHockey on Twitter.

Vitamin Supplements: To Take Or Not To Take

If you’re wondering whether vitamin supplements are right for you, Stacey Zawacki, a Sargent College clinical assistant professor and director of the Sargent Choice Nutrition Center, recommends a consultation with a registered dietitian. Photo by Kalman Zabarsky

News reports are filled with conflicting studies on the benefits and risks of taking vitamin and mineral supplements. The mixed messages can leave consumers wondering if buying a bottle of vitamins is a worthy health investment or money wasted. There’s good reason for the consumer confusion, says Stacey Zawacki, a Sargent College clinical assistant professor and director of the Sargent Choice Nutrition Center. The answer to “Should I take vitamins?” is never a simple yes or no.

“Everyone is unique,” says Zawacki (SAR’98, SPH’13), who provides private nutrition counseling and teaches the class Food, Supplements, and Consumer Health. Her recommendations depend on an individual’s nutritional needs, health goals, food preferences, and other factors. Does Zawacki take supplements herself? “No, I don’t,” she says. “But that really is irrelevant, because it’s a personal decision based on what I know about my needs, my life stage, and my diet.”

If you’re wondering whether vitamin supplements are right for you, Zawacki recommends a consultation with a registered dietitian. An hour-long counseling session can cost less than what many people spend for a year’s worth of tablets and capsules, and your health insurance may cover counseling costs if you have hypertension, diabetes, or another diet-driven disease.

“What I do as a first step,” Zawacki says, “is ask, ‘What are you currently eating?’” She’ll then analyze your diet, looking for possible deficiencies. If it appears you’re not getting, for example, the amount of vitamin E that the Institute of Medicine recommends for a healthy person of your age and gender, Zawacki won’t automatically send you to the drugstore for vitamin E capsules. Instead, she’ll recommend you add almonds, sunflower seeds, spinach, or other foods rich in vitamin E to your diet. Unlike pills, these foods also provide fiber, protein, and a host of other nutrients. “There’s no pill that contains all that,” Zawacki says.

And some foods contain a remarkable number of vitamins and nutrients. Sweet potatoes, for example, are an excellent source of vitamins A, B, and C, potassium, and fiber. Spinach is included on the list of recommended food sources for iron, magnesium, potassium, and vitamins A, C, E, and K. Adding just a few of these “super foods” to your regular diet can be an efficient way to fill many common nutrient gaps.

If your lifestyle, food preferences, or allergies make it unlikely that you’ll be able to meet your nutritional needs with food alone, then Zawacki might recommend a vitamin supplement. If she does, she’ll help you determine the best form of that particular vitamin to buy and the best time of day to take it to maximize absorption and avoid interactions with medications.

What if you eat a well-balanced diet, but want to take a multivitamin just in case? “There are scientists out there who disagree on whether it’s going to be helpful, harmful, or have no benefit,” Zawacki says. “I would give you all the information I can, and then it would be your choice.” If you decide to take a multivitamin, she says, choose a reputable brand (look for a seal of approval from ConsumerLab, NSF, or United States Pharmacopeia) that doesn’t include more than 100 percent of the nutrients recommended for your gender and life stage. But keep in mind, she says, “if you’re getting the nutrients you need from your diet, there’s no strong evidence that extra nutrients are going to help you.”

The Sargent Choice Nutrition Center has a list of resources here; alums can also register for nutrition counseling with Sargent’s experts.

5 Ways To Take Some Of The Distance Out Of Distance Learning

It’s important this year to keep connecting with students and fostering their engagement in learning.

Teachers understand the importance of physically being in the student space of the classroom. It’s essential for engaging students who are off track, for making specific points, and for energizing already on-task learners. But how can we connect with students when we’re separated by either a computer screen or the physical barriers we currently need to keep everyone safe in the classroom?

The following are five ideas we’ve tried this year with middle school and college students—they should also work with the high school students in between.


Be Dramatic—Shout and Whisper

When we notice early sleepers still arising, students with pre-lunch cravings or post-lunch comas, or end-of-the-day clock watchers—in other words, students who are distracted for various reasons throughout the day—we find that, whether we’re teaching in person in a mask or virtually via Zoom, alternating between using a booming voice and a conspiratorial whisper draws students into the drama of our learning experiences.

It sounds simple, and that’s the point. We need simple ideas in complex times.

2. Focus on Connecting With Students

We have to engage our students, particularly those who are struggling, in just a few moments of conversation. The need is especially real for students who don’t normally participate in class or in online calls.

If you’re teaching virtually, take two minutes four times a week before or after a synchronous session to ask individual students about their weekend and their interests. The best time is usually right before or after class, but reaching out with a phone call works as well. Continuing to follow up with them a few times a week for a brief two-minute conversation is the key. The two minutes four times a week can also be one minute three times a week, or even one minute one time a week. You can do this with one or more students per week.

These are slimmed down versions of the Two by Ten approach, which has been shown to measurably improve student behavior. The point is that you are initiating a real connection with a student, and that can break down all types of walls.

3. Make Sure Everyone Speaks

Every member of the class should expect to speak in every class, and the norm should be that everyone contributes. Our classes are richest when all perspectives are included.

Cold calling is controversial, but it’s possible to take the sting out of cold calling and transform the downsides into a warm invitation to share thoughts. A wise teacher knows when to bring each student into a conversation through round robin questions that elicit a response from everyone or rapid questioning that allows many students to participate in a limited time frame.

There are many ways to ask questions that help students feel safe, such as using a tool like Mentimeter to make participation anonymous while ensuring that every student gives feedback.

Keep engaging students and let them feel the warmth of participation, and make sure the classroom is a place where it’s OK to be wrong because we come together to learn.

4. Really See Each Student

Students need to hear about the good work they’re doing—and they’re achieving a lot of amazing work this season.

General or generic praise, however, not only gives students a false sense of accomplishment but can also lead to praise becoming meaningless. Be specific with praise, and use this as another opportunity to break down that dividing wall.

5. SEL, Early and Often

Regularly attending to the social and emotional needs of students establishes a focus on well-being. In class, try to incorporate social and emotional learning activities, whether as a stand-alone, or, to really maximize the benefit, incorporated into a lesson plan.

In elementary through early middle school, give students words to describe their feelings using the framework of the Zones of Regulation. Older students can be given assignments that lead them to connect their learning to their community, such as asking family members, religious leaders, and other potential mentors about their experiences.

The point of all of these strategies is to engage and connect with students, no matter what the distance. If one of these ideas stands out to you, try it. And remember, we need to say no to some things so that we can say yes to the best things. To un-distance distance learning, make sure to first take care of yourself so that you can take care of those entrusted to you.

Ocz Octane Ssd Reviews Round

OCZ Octane SSD reviews round-up

This week we’re seeing the fabulously powerful and relatively inexpensive OCZ Octane 1TB 2.5-inch SSD hit the review block, and what we’re seeing here is that the manufacturers have backed up their claims in more ways than one. Price per gigabyte on this device is lower than the competition while the strength its displaying in this first round of hands-on looks is showing it to be more than a contender in the benchmark department. Could this be your next solid state drive, dare we ask?

While the OSZ Octane has been promised to achieve read / write speeds of 560MB/s for reading and 400MB/s for writing, it appears that reviewers have found this to be not all that far off from the truth. Have a peek at the specifications in this new OCZ offering first, then see what the real deal is.

OCZ Octane Specs

128GB (OCT1-25SAT3-128G) $199.99 ($1.56/GB)

256GB (OCT1-25SAT3-256G) $369.99 ($1.45/GB)

512GB (OCT1-25SAT3-512G) $879.99 ($1.72/GB)

1TB (OCT1-25SAT3-1TG)

• 512GB Formatted Capacity: 476.94GB

• Indilinx Everest platform

• Up to 560MB/s Read (1TB Capacity)

• Up to 400MB/s Write (512GB and 1TB Capacity)

• 512MB Onboard Cache

• 25nm Intel Synchronous NAND

• TRIM Support

• SATA 6Gb/s interface

• NCQ Support up to 32 Queue Depth

• 9.5mm, 2.5″ form factor

• Dynamic & Static Wear-Leveling, and Background Garbage Collection

• 8 channels with up to 16-way Interleaving

• Power Consumption: 1.98W active, 1.15W standby

“The Octane comes packaged like many other SSD’s out there, with a few extra presents like the “My SSD is faster than your HDD” sticker seen with Vertex units. … 1TB – in a 2.5″ form factor SSD! HDD’s hit this mark not too long ago, and while a 1TB Octane will most certainly cost a pretty penny, there’s something to be said for SSD’s so rapidly catching up to HDD’s for a given form factor. … Octane did well in sequential transfers with HDTach, but remember this particular test hits drives with a string of sequential (QD=1) IO, a notorious weakness of SandForce controllers.” – Malventano

Next see what Kevin OBrien of Storage Review had to say on another synthetic benchmark test by the name of Iometer, with the single chart showing off a Workstation 4K model profile, with results below:

“Our last section of synthetic benchmarks looks at the performance of each drive in enterprise profiles, including database, webserver, file server, and workstation. One of the main benefits of this test over other synthetic benchmarks is the mixed workload with both read and write transfers as well as varied transfer sizes at the same time. These are also scaled from a queue depth of 1 to 128 to fully stress the drive in a demanding environment. As you can see below the OCZ Octane stayed close to the group in the lower queue depths, but couldn’t scale up as high under a multi-threaded workload; although it did manage to stay above the Crucial m4 in all but the webserver test.” – OBrien

Then of course no review series based mainly in benchmarks would be complete without a visit by Anandtech’s Anand Lal Shimpi himself. Check out Anand’s review for a rather in-depth and interesting story on the history of OCZ if you like, otherwise just read this snippet on how well the drive works with their heavy workload test:

“When put to the test the Octane does not disappoint. It’s within a couple MB/s of the SF-2281 based Vertex 3, and effectively one of the fastest 6Gbps drives on the market today. I included the old Indilinx Barefoot based Corsair Nova V128 to show just how far Indilinx has come here.” – Anand

Moshi Iphone 5S Cases Round Up

As soon as I ordered my iPhone 5s, I began hunting around the internet for new cases. Yes, iPhone 5 cases are completely compatible with iPhone 5s, but I started looking anyway. New iPhone, new case, is my standard. Something fresh was needed. I didn’t know exactly what I was looking for at the time, but something that related to the new 5s in some way.

Moshi came to mind, as they always utilize clean and simple designs. A clip on case is always the most simplistic and I opted for that version. Browsing through the selection, I came across the iGlaze Armour and it is marketed as a slim fit case. The two tone design caught my eye, as it matches the 5s backing. In particular, the gold/silver version caught my attention, because “gold is best.”…

iGlaze Armour

Access to the proper ports and buttons is allowed. A hole is cut precisely for the camera, much preferable to the oversized ports on many competing cases. Additionally, a hole is cut to show the Apple logo, just in case someone mistook your precious for an Android device. The port hole is cut with a mirrored finish edge, just for the extra flash. The only detractor is the brand name “moshi,” which rests at the bottom of the gold plate, but is not really distracting.

The iGlaze armour is offered in sliver, black, and gold, for those with preferences, and comes with a back skin to prevent dust damage, caused by little particles that inevitably work their way into any case. The added skin is a nice touch by Moshi to help keep your investment protected. Pick up a gold version starting at $32.90. Also available in black and silver.

iGlaze Kameleon

The Kameleon, like Armour, is a slim fit polycarbonate shell, offering five-sided protection. Side rails protect the four edges, but do not come past the front screen, eliminating the option to place the iPhone face down. A vegan leather backplate covers the shell, giving a soft brushed feeling to the backside.

All ports and buttons are easily accessible, with the same structure as all iGlaze cases. A simple round cutout provides a port so the Apple logo shows thru and the meticulously designed camera port provides just enough cutaway for the flash and lens.

Kameleons start at $49.95 in black and are also available in white.


Overture combines synthetic fabric with Moshi’s Terahe-dron microfiber lining. Benefits of this combination provide a splash resistant outer surface, which can be cleaned with third party leather cleaners. Interior, microfiber is simply treatable with a damp cloth. Although these specifics are listed on a small insert with the case, I do not plan on needing to scrub away any grime.

All ports and buttons are accessible and the phone can be charged without removal. Unfortunately, the mute switch and volume buttons are only activated by opening the wallet. This prevents the user from simply reaching inside a pocket and flipping to mute. However, the camera port is cut quite precisely. Unlike some competing cases, the iPhone does not need to be removed for photos or videos.

You can pick up a Moshi Overture starting at $45. It is available in back, gray and orange. Check it out in the video below, but notice the folded view is not an option on the iPhone case.

These are some solid options from Moshi. Thanks to my friend at their office for sending them over. What do you guys think about their items?
