By Quo Vadis October 21, 2020

By Jared Almanzor, Staff Writer Emiliano Rodolfo Rosales-Birou, best known as Chuggaaconroy, is a Let’s Player on YouTube and he has been around since 2008. I like to call him Chugga.

Jade Borges Managing Editor   “Astrophysics for People in a Hurry,” a 2017 science novel by Neil deGrasse Tyson, was extremely interesting and educational.
