4. Citadel basketball pulls off upset of first-place ETSU

The 72 hours after The Citadel's loss to VMI on Saturday were not fun for anybody connected with Bulldogs' basketball. Losing for a second time to the last place team in the Southern Conference will have that effect.

Citadel coach Duggar Baucom had his team up early for a 6 a.m workout on Sunday, and stewed on the bus Monday during the five-hour drive to East Tennessee State. He was still steaming before tip-off Tuesday night at ETSU.

“Nobody was happy after the VMI game,” Baucom said. “I wasn't happy before this game, that's how long it lasted.”

Baucom and his Bulldogs had plenty to smile about after the game. Zane Najdawi scored 24 points, including a clutch 3-pointer with 34 seconds left, and The Citadel pulled off the upset of the SoCon season with an 84-82 victory over SoCon-leader ETSU before 4,911 fans at Freedom Hall.

3. Summerville's tiny Cummins Seminary has deep roots and a plan to modernize

Cummins Memorial Theological Seminary, a small school with roots dating back to Reconstruction, keeps a low profile in an old white building off of South Main Street. But with a new push for accreditation and a small infusion of cash, the seminary and its parent denomination, the Reformed Episcopal Church, hope to train Christian leaders for the next generation...The seminary was founded by the Rev. Peter Fayssoux Stevens, a former Confederate Army colonel who served as superintendent of The Citadel from 1859 to 1861. He is best known for giving the order to Citadel cadets at Morris Island to fire on the U.S. military transport ship Star of the West in January 1861 — arguably the first shots of the American Civil War, predating the Battle of Fort Sumter by three months.

4. Smart Cities: Charleston, South Carolina

With its stately antebellum homes and cobblestone streets, Charleston, South Carolina, is steeped in history, but the town is far from preserved in amber. Rather, the Holy City—so named for its long record of religious tolerance—has embraced the future by integrating modern urban design principles into the redevelopment of its historic core and surrounding areas and welcoming forward-thinking industry such as tech companies and Volvo’s first American factory, where production is scheduled to begin in late 2018.

It also has a rich cultural life, with a dining scene on par with cities several times its size, the annual performing arts festival Spoleto USA now in its 42nd year, and the International African American Museum slated to open in 2020. Joe Riley, who served as the city’s mayor for 41 years before his retirement in 2016, says that in order to attract visitors and businesses, a city must first provide a good quality of life for all the people who live there.

7. Progressive Totalitarians and Nativist Nationalists in Our Midst

America seems to be an increasingly politically polarized society. Those on the “progressive” political left often seem livid in their hatred and fear of anything and anyone who they label as being on the Republican or “conservative” side of the ideological spectrum. At the same time, many Republicans, and especially those among the supporters of the Trump Administration, see political and cultural enemies everywhere wanting to prevent America from being made “Great” again due to “deep state elites” manipulating everything for their own political purposes. This does not bode well for the country.

9a. "We're holding up" says parents of fallen NCPD officer Ryan MacCluen

On Monday, Shawn and Mark Kahn prepared to say goodbye to their son. North Charleston Police Officer 31-year-old Ryan MacCluen died in a motorcycle accident last Thursday. He was off-duty at the time.

"We are holding up," said Mark. "The support that we've gotten from the community has really been what's allowed us to work through a really difficult time."

His parents said their hearts are both shattered and beaming with pride. They said he came to Charleston to attend the Citadel. They added a pervasive knee injury kept him on and off his feet for the last decade, but eventually he found his purpose.

"He felt he was making a difference. He wanted to get one more gun off the street," Shawn said. "He wanted to make things better, and he wanted to be a North Charleston police officer, not any other police officer, he chose North Charleston."

3. New device measures blink reflex parameters to quickly and objectively identify concussion

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that between 1.6 and 3.8 million concussions occur each year in the US. In addition, research indicates that nearly a quarter of annual traumatic brain injuries among children are sustained during high-contact/collision recreational activities or sports. Unfortunately, current methods for diagnosing and evaluating concussion severity are not very accurate. Medical professionals and field-side staff must base concussion-related decisions on overt symptom assessments (e.g., balance, neurocognition) and self-reports that often provide incomplete, misleading or conflicting information. Nancey Trevanian Tsai, M.D., clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), and Dena Garner, Ph.D., professor of health, exercise, and sport science at The Citadel, collaborated to study whether a new device, the Blink Reflexometer, could help fill this urgent need for more objective measures of concussion severity and outcomes. The promising findings of that study are reported in the January issue of Cogent Engineering.
