Plastic pollution is a common sight on beaches and highways, but a recent study shows its extent is far more personal than it was initially understood to be. After 22 healthy adults were tested, it was found that 17 of them had microplastics in their bloodstream. While more research is needed to determine if plastic in the human body is harmful, the study highlights the extent of plastic pollution and a need for change.
The automatic flushing toilet was patented in 1988 as a way to eliminate the need to manually flush. Besides highlighting the laziness and lack of courtesy in a society unable to spare three extra seconds to pull a handle, automatic toilets traumatize children, hurt the environment and make life anything but easier.
The popular Captain Underpants book series is set in the very real city of Piqua, Ohio, due to Piqua’s history of underwear manufacturing and its discontinued Underwear Festival. But does author Dav Pilkey do Piqua justice in his series, or was the city chosen as a clever reference and nothing more? Having grown up in Piqua and binge-read all 12 epic novels in the Captain Underpants saga, I am ready to judge if the Piqua the waistband warrior occupies is the same Piqua I know and love.
When the literary journal “The Believer” ceased publication, it made headlines and prompted a discussion of why many literary journals are shutting down.

In short, the snow days many of us grew up with may be a thing of the past or drastically reduced. Montgomery has set a precedent for school districts that deal with bad weather on a yearly basis, like those in Ohio.
My education and course options have suffered due to the loss of OU’s professors.
While researching the regulations for mailing food to my international friends, I came across several articles listing common U.S. foods that were banned in other countries. To my horror, I learned how Wheat Thins had BHT on its packaging to preserve freshness, and Little Debbie Swiss Rolls had to carry a warning that it causes adverse effects in children due to having the additives Yellow 5 and Red 40 abroad.
Currently, the nation is suffering a bus driver shortage and Ohio is no exception. At least 40% of school districts in Ohio have had to cancel routes regularly, with some reportedly on the verge of collapse. While the pandemic has certainly played a role in this shortage, as a former bus driver’s daughter, I can say that the stress of driving a bus and the lack of consideration drivers are subjected to make bus driving unappealing.
Ohio University currently offers students a rich amount of online records and databases to access such as Jstor, ArticlesPlus and many more.

The university remained open, but there was definitely room for improvement.
Going to a religious school meant sex education was out of the question for me. My health teacher told our class we were “too immature” to handle the notorious talk. We weren’t ready to discuss sex, but that didn’t stop the school from kicking out a student when she got pregnant.
Pre-pandemic, I spent next to no time on social media, and my Facebook timeline was almost exclusively pictures my parents had tagged me in. Following the lockdown, I, like most people, increased my time spent online to make up for the lack of human contact while stuck at home.

Victor Frankenstein pays dearly for playing God in Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein, and by the end he, his creation and his entire family are dead. Well, everyone except Ernest. The Frankenstein middle child is miraculously spared from the creature’s murderous rampage, but why? Did Shelley forget he existed, or does Ernest’s survival have a deeper meaning?

YouTube is seen by many as a platform where anyone can make a name for themself, but when Butch Hartman joined the platform in 2015 and Chris Hansen in 2019, they were far from being nobodies.
