Maths goes digital

first_imgA digital edition of the oldest surviving manuscript of Euclid’s Elements, the founding document of Mathematics, will now be available to the public on the internet. The manuscript has been displayed in the Bodleian Library since 1804. When asked whether such developments may result in fewer visitors, Martin Kauffman, a curator at the Bodleian said “for rare things, digitisation is unlikely to make a dramatic difference to visitor numbers, and could even help to whip up interest.”ARCHIVE: 1st week MT 2005last_img read more

Gavitt wins pentathlon for Lakers at ESM Invitational

first_imgOver five events, Gavitt picked up 2,135 points, just enough to hold off Cicero-North Syracuse’s Liliana Klemanski (2,075 points) for that top spot, posting the fastest 100 hurdles time of 17.56 seconds.Elsewhere at ESM, Claire Edwards was third in the discus with a throw of 92 feet 1 inch, her best of the season by nearly two feet.

Against ITC, Cazenovia won 15 of 17 events including sweeps in seven of them and all three relays. Twenty-two different girls scored for the Lakers as members of the team achieved 54 season best performances during the meet.The key to the decisive win was Cazenovia’s ability to match ITC’s strengths, most notably in the sprints, where they are known to be among the best in Section III.Chloe Smith ran a season best of 12.8 seconds in the 100 meter dash to break up ITC’s powerful duo of Karizma Brathaire (12.7) and Fanny Kumeh (13.0). Savannah Johnson and Grace Dolan also ran season bests in the heat.Smith, Johnson and Dolan then teamed up with Hunt to win the 4×100 in their fastest time of the spring (53.4 seconds) Johnson returned to win the 200 in 28.3 seconds, a career best time, with Peyton Basic picking up third in 28.7.ITC tried to counter Cazenovia’s strength in the hurdles by using Brathwaire in both events, but the Lakers still outscored them 12 to 7. Melanie Michael ran a career best of 16.9 seconds to win the 100 hurdles, with Lili Gavitt second in 17.2 seconds. Michael returned to take second in the 400 hurdles in 1:16.5 with Caryn Gagnon third in 1:19.7.Cazenovia’s depth in the distance events was too much for IT as Hart, Isla Stover, and Eleanor Wester swept both the 1500 and 3000 meter runs with Stover achieving season bests in both first place finishes. Claire Braaten, Mary Williams and Mia Chesbrough finished 1-2-3 in the 800 with Kelly Frost joining them to win the 4×800 as well.The outcome was similar in the 400 with Peyton Basic, Grace Dolan and Ella Huftalen sweeping the 400 and Cavy Monahan joining in to capture the 4×400 relay.Cazenovia won all six field events to round out the decisive team victory with Maddy Gavitt scoring four times to lead the way.
