College football scores, NCAA top 25 rankings, schedule, games today: No. 5 UNC battles Florida State

If the first game of the week involving a ranked team was any indication, we could be in for another wild week of college football. Coastal Carolina dropped No. 21 Louisiana 30-27 on Wednesday night to kick off the Week 7 action, which features numerous other ranked teams in action against unranked foes. So while the SEC on CBS Game of the Week pitting No. 2 Alabama against No. 3 Georgia is clearly Saturday’s headliner, plenty of other top teams should be on high alert in games they will be favored to win.

With matchups involving top-10 teams from the SEC, Big 12 and AAC postponed, the ACC takes center stage as No. 13 Miami and No. 1 Clemson both play in the day’s early wave. Coming off a thrashing at the hands of Clemson, the Hurricanes host a Pittsburgh team that is consecutive one-point losses away from being 5-0.

Virtual rush, no parties: U fraternities and sororities navigate pandemic life

In a normal year, Jacques Frank-Loron and his fellow Beta Theta Pi fraternity members would tailgate before Gophers football games, pair with sororities for date parties and bond during weekly brotherhood events.

This fall, there will be no parties or social events. Half as many Beta Theta Pi members are living in the University of Minnesota fraternity house and most visitors are prohibited. The COVID-19 pandemic has upended Greek life traditions at the U and colleges across the country, forcing fraternities and sororities to socialize from afar and recruit new members virtually.

“Fraternities are not … the same experience at all this year,” said Frank-Loron, Beta Theta Pi’s president. “We’re still trying to figure out bonding in the pandemic environment.”

While fraternities and sororities have been blamed for campus outbreaks and disciplined for COVID-19-related violations elsewhere, chapters at the U have largely avoided such outcomes by limiting social gatherings and

With no bubble in place, football season, college and NFL, in jeopardy with rising COVID rates

It was just a normal Saturday in the tense new world of college and pro football.

The New England Patriots reopened their facilities after canceling Friday’s practice because of a positive COVID-19 test. The Jacksonville Jaguars closed their facilities after a practice-squad player tested positive on Friday. The Denver Broncos traveled to face the Patriots without running-backs coach Curtis Modkins, who tested positive for COVID on Saturday morning, and also without running back Melvin Gordon III, who had an illness that was feared to be COVID but now has been determined to be unrelated.

Meanwhile, in college football, Alabama’s legendary, soon-to-be 69-year-old, coach Nick Saban was cleared to be on the sidelines in the Tide’s blockbuster game against Georgia after his original diagnosis of COVID was determined to be a false positive. Two other Southeastern Conference games — Florida vs. LSU, and Vanderbilt vs. Missouri — scheduled for Saturday were

COVID-19 is pushing these college students to drop out. That could devastate the economy and their lives.

Jasmine Justice hit her breaking point during the last week of September.

Trump urges colleges to keep in-person learning



Overwhelmed at the juggling act of three full-time gigs — as a community college student, an employee and a mom — Justice crumbled. She ignored reminder emails from her instructors to send in her assignments. “I wasn’t comprehending what I was reading. I was looking at diagrams that made no sense.” On Zoom work meetings, she noted her pale complexion and dark under-eye circles. Her appetite disappeared. She snapped at her 17-year-old daughter, Josiah, a high school senior also cooped up inside their small apartment.

“Being a community college student, it’s a balancing act,” says Justice, 39, a student at Pierce College in Lakewood, Washington, about 50 miles south of Seattle. “And at any moment, the scales could tip.”

Meet the zeptosecond, the shortest unit of time ever measured

background pattern: A particle of light, called a photon (yellow arrow), produces electron waves out of an electron cloud (grey) of a hydrogen molecule (red: nucleus). The result of those interactions is what’s called an interference pattern (violet-white). The interference pattern is slightly skewed to the right, allowing researchers to calculate the time for the photon to get from one atom to the next.

A particle of light, called a photon (yellow arrow), produces electron waves out of an electron cloud (grey) of a hydrogen molecule (red: nucleus). The result of those interactions is what’s called an interference pattern (violet-white). The interference pattern is slightly skewed to the right, allowing researchers to calculate the time for the photon to get from one atom to the next.

Scientists have measured the shortest unit of time ever: the time it takes a light particle to cross a hydrogen molecule. 

That time, for the record, is 247 zeptoseconds. A zeptosecond is a trillionth of a billionth of a second, or a decimal point followed by 21 zeroes and a 1. Previously, researchers had dipped into the realm of zeptoseconds; in 2016, researchers reporting in the journal Nature Physics used lasers to measure time in increments down to 850 zeptoseconds. This accuracy is

South Carolina beats Auburn for 1st time in 87 years: College football Top 25 roundup

Kevin Harris had two touchdown runs and South Carolina turned three interceptions into points to beat No. 15 Auburn for the first time in 87 years, a 30-22 victory on Saturday.

The Tigers (2-2 Southeastern Conference) had won eight in a row in the series and jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the opening 10 minutes. But Bo Nix threw three interceptions and the host Gamecocks (2-2) cashed in each time to win consecutive games for the first time in more than a year.

Shi Smith had eight catches, including a 10-yard TD grab midway through the third quarter that put South Carolina ahead for good, 20-19.

Auburn was driving on its following series when Nix threw his third interception — and second to cornerback Jaycee Horn who brought the ball down the left sidelines to the Tigers 8. Harris was in the end zone a play later for

College football on CBS Sports Network — Marshall-Louisiana Tech, Army-UTSA: TV channel, watch live stream

When Army met UTSA for the first time last year, the Knights ran over the Roadrunners with 340 yards rushing on 55 carries in their 31-13 victory. UTSA is now getting an unexpected chance at redemption as it faces the Black Knights again Saturday in a game that was not scheduled until late August after both teams ended up with open dates on their schedules amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Both teams are off to comparatively great starts in 2020 after they suffered through eight-loss campaigns in 2019. Army is 4-1 with its only loss coming against No. 8 Cincinnati, while UTSA is 3-2 with close losses against No. 15 BYU and a solid UAB team. It makes for what should be a competitive game as the Roadrunners look to prove they learned something in last season’s game about how to defend the triple option.

It’s the first of two games

“The education of the future implies abandoning traditional approaches,” says UNICEF expert at Ismael Cala Foundation forum

The UNICEF expert for Latin America and the Caribbean also explained that “education must have a holistic approach: early childhood, physical and mental health, and education itself.”

“In the future the presence will be physical and remote, which requires connected schools, trained teachers, equipped students; the digital divide must not act to perpetuate the existing differences,” added Vincenzo Placco.

Ismael Cala, founder and president of ICF, moderated the meeting and emphasized that the organization “assumes the responsibility that we all have to raise awareness of the SDGs as a contribution to the development of the region, and opens this space to publicize the work we do together to contribute to the 2030 Agenda.”

Also present was María Paula Murra, Vice President of Corporate Relations at Westfield Business
