College Park edges The Woodlands for first-ever district crown

SHENANDOAH — College Park got the last punch in a back-and-forth War of the Woods on Friday at Woodforest Bank Stadium.

The Cavaliers beat their rival The Woodlands 35-31 and earned the outright District 13-6A title. It was College Park’s second-ever win over The Woodlands and their first since 2007. It’s also the program’s first district title.

“It’s a great feeling,” coach Lonnie Madison said. “We feel like we’ve been trying to find a different way to win the game each week. We’ve had new guys step up every week and found just enough ways to come out on top this week and be district champions.”

College Park (8-1, 5-0) will go into the postseason as the Division I top seed in 13-6A, while the Highlanders (5-3, 4-1) will be the second seed in Div. I.

“Coach Madison and his guys do a great job and they had great emotion,

Computer Scientists Achieve the ‘Crown Jewel’ of Cryptography

In 2018, Aayush Jain, a graduate student at the University of California, Los Angeles, traveled to Japan to give a talk about a powerful cryptographic tool he and his colleagues were developing. As he detailed the team’s approach to indistinguishability obfuscation (iO for short), one audience member raised his hand in bewilderment.

Original story reprinted with permission from Quanta Magazine, an editorially independent publication of the Simons Foundation whose mission is to enhance public understanding of science by covering research develop­ments and trends in mathe­matics and the physical and life sciences.

“But I thought iO doesn’t exist?” he said.

At the time, such skepticism was widespread. Indistinguishability obfuscation, if it could be built, would be able to hide not just collections of data but the inner workings of a computer program itself, creating a sort of cryptographic master tool from which nearly every other cryptographic protocol could be built.
