Many college students are all too familiar with how convenient cheap fast food is. It doesn’t need to taste good. It only needs to be easy on the wallet and filling enough to get me through my day. What’s my go-to? The Golden Arches. Not only do broke college students know the taste of a Big Mac, fries and a Coke all too well. McDonald's is also a spot to make a few extra dollars while going to school. However, McDonald's has recently been under fire by its employees due to low wages and now, sexual harassment.
Recently, The New York Times had an article about an unusual trend on YouTube. The YouTube children app, which was first introduced in 2015, is supposed to be an app that can safely show families kid-friendly videos that are on the video-sharing site.
Welcome back, I hope your holiday was filled with all the family fun and turkey it could be. No doubt you were asked some embarrassing questions about your social life or how college is going, but politics was probably another issue that was brought up. Perhaps reigniting all the sour feelings and bitter words from last year.
The New York Times reported the average person living in the city could see up to 5,000 advertisements in one day. That’s 208 an hour or three a minute. They are littered with things like alcohol, fast food, cars, more fast food and products that are made to seem like you can’t live without them.

Edith Munro of the Times Union writes about redistricting in Iowa. “For most Americans, redistricting is a study in bare knuckles partisanship as political parties battle for the advantage that comes from reorganizing congressional and state legislative districts. Not in Iowa.”
The ever-voracious appetite for nostalgia that has engulfed American media over the last decade has led to the resurrection and remaking of several television programs and calls for reunions of now-defunct musical groups. “The Nostalgia Factor” has so far seen varying results in the world of American cinema, with classic films such as “Wall Street” and the “Indiana Jones” franchise releasing sequels decades after their predecessors. These films were met with a lukewarm reception from viewers and critics alike. Looking to break this mold, “Blade Runner 2049” seeks to please viewers 35 years after the release of Ridley Scott’s original “Blade Runner” in 1982.
Netflix newest movie Death Note is Dead on Arrival.

Children play near them with balloons in their hands and sweet in their pockets. The Mosques are packed with worshipers to do the ritual prayer. Muslims united together from diverse countries in one place to celebrate the day of Eid al-Adha.
It happens to the best of us -- no matter how much you pour over the Housing and Residence Life website with their many do’s and don’ts for packing or ask college returners on what to pack, there’s a good chance that you’ll be in line to check into your residence hall when you’ll realize, to your horror, that you forgot to pack something important—or worse, have brought something on the “don’t” list.
It’s time for Colin Kaepernick to forget about playing professional football. It’s not because of his inability either.
Let me lay down the facts like it is; the Tony Hawk games are the best sports video games ever made. Sorry FIFA, Madden, NBA, and all other competitors, no other sports video game franchise has mastered fun, addictive gameplay, controls, mechanics, and soundtrack like the birdman has. Even though the franchise has fallen from grace thanks to various crappy games, once upon a time, they were considered some of the greatest games ever made. They helped shaped the childhoods of many kids in the early 2000’s, including myself. That is why I am writing this tribute to the franchise right now. Let’s start with some history.
On November 8, 2016 Americans went to the polls across the country to cast their ballot for the next President of the United States, since then disappointment, investigations and anxiety have followed. In a turn of events that not even famed TV social comedy South Park’s writers and producers could have imagined and with over two million people voting against him; An arcane system designed in 1789 to protect states with minimal population and prevent the election of unqualified farmers elected a multi-billionaire whose closest attempt at government experience is his meetings with city planning committees as President.
There is nothing to say about the screening of Teinosuke Kinugasa’s “A Page of Madness” except that it was a revelation. The film, from 1926, is notable for going against common editing practices of Japanese cinema at the time with moments that give a similar impression to soviet cinema. The screening was introduced by Abe Markus Nornes, a professor of Japanese film at University of Michigan, who discussed the history of the film and issues with screening availability. One of the problems mentioned was with the Michigan Theater itself in trying to book the film. After attending the screening, the effort was commendable for the life that it breathed into a classic Japanese silent cinema.
At one point in time, George Washington, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison all wrote about the dangers of factions (political parties) in American politics. That was before President Washington's farewell address. As a final statement, after promising to only serve two terms, he reiterated the importance of keeping America’s government non-partisan -- but that didn't last. Hamilton and Jefferson got into a feud and ended up starting the two-party system that they argued against in previous writings.
Ever wonder why our calendar can be so strange? Think about it: February gets an extra day every four years, the month names are inconsistent (October is the 10th month even though "octo" means 8), New Year’s Day is in the middle of winter, and all the months have different lengths ranging from 28 to 30 days. Why all of these inconsistencies?
