Around this time last year, a skinny kid from South Central Los Angeles with brave fashion sense and a penchant for lyricism released the best rap album of 2012. His name was Kendrick Lamar Duckworth. The album was titled “good kid, M.A.A.D city,” and when you went to the record store that day or on your computer to download it (legally of course), then you could feel the goose bumps appear across your forearms. Real hip-hop fans knew a classic album had been constructed that was marketable, street sensible, and lyrical, the triple 7’s of crafting an LP in this particular genre of music. Nevertheless, on the other side of L.A., industry insiders, critics and fans alike were beginning to talk about another rapper with an entirely different lyrical style and mojo. Enter Schoolboy Q.
Being a college student often means being on a budget, which can unfortunately mean that paying for cable isn’t an option for many of us. But the universe is finally working in our favor, giving us Netflix, the cheaper alternative to cable.
“Dirty little secrets always come out” and the third season of ABC’s critically acclaimed and Emmy nominated political thriller “Scandal,” premiering on Oct. 3 at 10 p.m, promises more gut-wrenching turmoil of forbidden love and suffocating dilemmas that rest on one woman’s shoulders.
Let’s face it — it can definitely be said that social media is at the center of everyone’s lives these days. But as much as we love and rely on social media for not only entertainment, but communication and even professional purposes, there are things people post on social media that make us want to reach through the computer and thump them on the head.
We’ve all done questionably illegal things in our lives (allegedly), whether partaking in recreational drug use in college, sipping on alcohol in our parents’ basements well before reaching the legal drinking age, or other dubious acts we feel best left tucked away.
“No,” answered Republican Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan when asked by Bob Scheiffer whether or not the state would ask for federal bailout funds for Detroit. “I’ve said before, ‘the state cannot bailout the city of Detroit.’ It’s not just about putting more money in the situation. It’s about better services to citizens…It’s about accountable government.”
Jose Miguel Cabrera Torres is simply a man among boys. If anyone has had the fortune – or, depending on where you reside and whom you root for, the misfortune – of watching him play baseball, it’s difficult not to share the same sentiment. Since exploding onto the scene in 2003 at age 20, he has changed the sport in a time where performance enhancing drugs (PED) and steroids run rampant. Ryan Braun or any other major leaguer couldn’t even afford all the PEDs in the world it would take to hit the ball like “Miggy” can.

Everyone has heard about the gender gap faced by women around the world. The media frequently highlights the global disparity between the rights of the sexes, but we don’t often stop to reflect on our own cultural expectations.
When I started looking into where I was going to go to college in 2010, Eastern Michigan University was never on my mind. So I guess it was a blessing in disguise when EMU ended up being one of few Division One Universities I was recruited to swim at because, although I never intended to end up here, I’m so glad I have.
Parents in Germany can now opt out of declaring “it’s a girl” or “it’s a boy,” and instead say nothing; letting their intersex baby decide his or her own gender identity later in life, or remain ambiguous. It all seems very enlightening, but advocates for intersexuality have criticized the new court ruling.
There is a reason that Detroit must not pay its creditors in Rembrandts and Matisses.
Detroit was once a thriving city filled with an abundance of employment oppourtunies and a population that once reached into the millions.
As Americans grow increasingly dissatisfied with the U.S. government, patience seems to be wearing thin. What if America were on the brink of something very similar to the Arab Spring? It might be a more realistic concept than many think.
Like the one man trinity known as Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El, producer Christopher Nolan and director Zack Snyder have a difficult time maintaining a consistent cinematic identity with their “Man of Steel.” “Steel” is an origin story that tells how Kal-El was born, shows how Clark was raised by foster parents in Kansas, and finally how Superman came to be.
Since the winter semester has ended I’ve finally had the time to read “Detroit: An American Autopsy” by Charlie LeDuff, published in February.
Imagine a United States of America without crime. Imagine our country with an employment percentage higher than Steve Nash’s career free throw percentage (90.42 percent as of today). Now imagine working in customer service and knowing that for one day out of the year, you could legally murder every cheap, ignorant idiot that stiffs you out of a tip on a $200 bill. The key to this utopian United States with rock bottom crime rates and sky high employment rates is that for one day out of the year any and all crime is legal. You can murder, steal, loiter or even solicit next to “no-soliciting” signs.
