Junior battles cancer, researches disease

first_imgJunior Courtney Rauch is a student researcher. For the past two years, she was also a breast cancer patient. Rauch works with Dr. Steven Buechler, the chair of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, to compile and organize data about breast cancer treatment. “He’s doing research where he’s not really finding a cure for cancer, but he’s finding out ways to group breast cancer patients so you know which treatment … they would respond to,” Rauch said. “The way it is now, a lot of people get chemo when they don’t actually need chemo. The chemo isn’t necessarily the best treatment to help them.” Rauch spent the last two years splitting her time between surgery and student life. She is now cancer-free. ND Minute spent some time with Rauch to learn about her “let’s fix it” attitude, her love of math and her experience with breast cancer. “It’s kind of given me the mentality that you don’t wait for things,” Rauch said. “I try to make the most out of everything that I do here. Coming in, I knew I only have four years here and I have to make the most of college, but the fact that I had to miss school and occasionally I thought I would have to stay home an entire semester … I dedicate myself to everything I do as much as I can.”last_img read more

Bellator 237 results: Fedor Emelianenko knocks out Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson in first round

first_imgWhen Fedor Emelianenko signed a three-fight deal in June to remain in Bellator, it had been expected that it would be a retirement tour of sorts beginning at Saturday’s Bellator 237 when he met Quinton “Rampage” Jackson ​in the main event in Saitama, Japan.Emelianenko (39-6, one no-contest) made the return to Saitama Super Arena, the venue where he scored some of biggest wins in his storied career, a memorable one by knocking out Jackson with a blistering right hand in a dominant performance at the 2:44 mark of the first round to complete phase one of the tour. For his career, Emelianenko went 14-0 inside the arena with nine of those wins by stoppage. Join DAZN and watch the Bellator 237 replay of Fedor vs. RampageThe bout wasn’t too much to write home about. Emelianenko controlled an out-of-shape Jackson, who came in at 265 pounds, from the outset. Emelianenko repeatedly found a home with the left uppercut, sometimes doubling them up. When he wasn’t using his vaunted left and right hands, Emelianenko kept Jackson at distance by mixing in kicks to the body and leg. Then with both fighters standing in the center of the cage, Emelianenko connected on a vicious right hand to put Jackson out of his misery for one final KO in the “Land of the Rising Sun.” So what’s next for Emelianenko? After the fight, it was initially thought that he had hinted at his retirement, but that turned out to be a translation mistake. He clarified his comments afterward, saying he wants to continue. “For this day, particularly this day, [two more fights] is the plan,” he said, according to ESPN. “But we’ll see.”Here’s what happened at Bellator 237:Bellator 237: Fedor vs. Rampage results(All times Eastern.)Fedor Emelianenko knocks out Quinton “Rampage” Jackson12:46 a.m.: Emelianenko def.
