As the 2019 College Football season reaches its halfway point, the Syracuse Orange (3-3, 0-2), have many questions left to answer.

Which Tommy DeVito can we count on going forward, the healthy one who racked up nearly 400 total yards and five touchdowns against Western Michigan, or the injury-prone one who has a 12:5 touchdown to interception ratio and two costly red zone picks? 

In the Syracuse area most of us could probably name a place or two to grab a good cup of coffee or a quick bite to eat. But what about locating a good shop for tattoos and body art?

On this episdoe of The 315, Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss are joined by three local tattoo artists, Nik Moore from Scarab Body Arts, Jamie Santos of Three of Swords Tattoo, and  Jemola Addley from Resurrected Tattoo. They chat about what's unique about their shops, how socially acceptable are tattoos becoming and how does one get started in the business. That and more on this special 'ink' edition of The 315.

The buzz around the Syracuse football team was palpable. Expectations were high and excitement levels were even higher. In 2018, the Orange won ten games for the first time in seventeen years. They had come into the 2019 college football season at No. 22 in the Associated Press Top-25, and had shutout the Liberty Flames 24-0 in Week One. Syracuse's week two date with Maryland did not lack signifcance, but many Orange faithful had their sights set on week three, Syracuse's home opener against top-ranked Clemson, and a rematch of Syracuse's dome-storming upset victory two years ago.

Careers in Code set out six months ago with the goal of helping alleviate poverty in the Central New York area and help provide area tech employers with more local talent. The program was run by Hack Upstate, funded by the Alliance for Economic Inclusion, and targeted women and minorities.

The coding boot camp graduated 11 students last week, all now with the skills needed to get a job in Syracuse’s growing tech sector. The graduation highlighted the work of the participants and the program as a whole.
