The Gold Standard: Student Events makes a devil’s bargain

Student Events has a number of fantastic projects going on at any given time. Shortly before the break, I had the pleasure of attending one of these, an SE forum involving free food from Taqueria Mexico. I love Taqueria. At this well-attended gathering, I became involved in a discussion of SE’s new finance structure. I […]


Ziv sprinkler concerns go unanswered

A Union senator’s concerns regarding sprinkler sensitivity have gone unanswered by the administration, sources say. “The concern about the sprinklers is that they are too sensitive to touch,” said Ziv Quad senator Justin Sulsky ’09. Sulsky said he became involved after his suite was flooded at the beginning of the semester when a student accidentally […]


Shopping for Truth: Clearing up confusion

First off, I’d like to say thank you to Matt Lawrence and Robert Held for taking the time to read my article “Give the Police a Chance” (November 9) and taking the time to respond to it. It’s nice to know that not just my family and friends read my column. Who would have known […]


Sexiled: Come quietly

Slice and ’Deis leaves you craving more

The premiere of BTV’s new sitcom Slice and ’Deis was a success. The dialogue was witty, the acting looked natural, and the comical visuals had me laughing throughout.

TV becomes reality

I seem to have become The Hoot’s Museum of Science girl. Last year, I wrote about the controversial exhibit, Body Worlds II, which involved plastinated bodies in elaborate poses. Why not write about crime this year? Those of you who know me know that I love CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. That’s why I was thrilled […]


Techies need eye candy too

Is it the “Sunshine Yellow”, “Espresso” or “Flamingo Pink” that grabs the attention of countless individuals who purchase Apple Computers? Consumer reports show that in 2007 trendy, stylish laptop computers receive much higher ratings than laptop computers that are designed strictly to be practical and durable. Consumers prefer to buy a new laptop computer approximately […]

Belonging’s Release

“At the end of 1941, the Germans made the decision to try to destroy all the Jews in every country they conquered or controlled. They began with the organized murder of hundreds and thousands of Jews, and with the help of gas chambers and death camps such as Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen, the Nazis proceeded with […]

It has brought us total and utterly unfaithful and terrible adaptations of comics like Judge Dredd and the League […]
