Book brings together mathematical modeling and sport

One of the things that first drew me into sports fandom was the prevalence of numbers. Professional sports count a lot of things; as a kid with a proclivity for math and a lot of time on his hands, it’s no surprise that I would embrace that side of things.

Debut novel a compelling, quality work of literary science fiction

One could argue that we’re currently riding a wave of literary science fiction unlike any we’ve seen before.

Red Sox Report Card – May 2016

You probably don’t need me to tell you that May was a very good month for the Boston Red Sox.

The team has put up the best record in the American League for the month, along with some of the most impressive offensive numbers we’ve seen in quite some time. Apparently, April showers bring May power.

‘Slice the Box’

Sometimes, when you’re looking for a distraction, you look for something that engages you on a particular level. Sometimes, you want to waste your time in ways with a little more complexity. Not a lot, mind you – you just want to invest a little more effort.

Latest X-movie uneven, but still entertaining

The X-Men have had a bumpy ride on the big screen. The first “X-Men” was a huge part in kickstarting the renaissance of now-ubiquitous superhero movies. However, the franchise took a nosedive with its third installment, necessitating a reboot with 2011’s excellent “Days of Future Past” and 2014’s solid follow-up “Days of Future Past.”

Alice shouldn’t live here anymore

“Alice Through the Looking Glass” a dull, dispirited mess

Sometimes, a sequel happens whether or not anyone really wants it to. A movie’s success can be such that returning to the well simply cannot be avoided no matter how bad an idea that might prove to be.

We all have our favorite types of time-wasting games. My personal preference is for puzzle games; the best ones strike that perfect balance between mindlessness and intellectual stimulation. Not too difficult, but not too easy – that’s the sweet spot.
