Gamer Girl: Smartphone games are incredibly addicting

I’m completely addicted to playing games on my phone. It’s a horrible habit — it kills my battery, distracts me in class and makes me stay up late trying to beat levels. I can’t help it, I’m obsessed.

The PHILosopher: Reminiscing proves a worthwhile investment

Apparently this Monday, and the bulk majority of Sunday, my mind felt like it would be a good idea to reflect on my college experience from my new senior perspective. Upon first review, this idea seemed to be about as fun as going into a midterm still tipsy from the night before. I figured that once my mind entered this splendid train of thought my social media profiles would be as much as of a train wreck as Miley Cyrus was during the MTV Video Music Awards.

That's a Wrap: Pressure piles on to create more frightening movies

As time moves on, films are continuously becoming scarier and scarier. When you compare a  modern horror film to one that came out a decade or so earlier, typically you would find that the latest one is significantly more terrifying. This is because of the fact that moviemakers have gained more techniques when it comes to things like cinematography, music or writing techniques.

Green Beat: Conflict arises on validity of climate report

Last Monday, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published its fifth assessment report—its first comprehensive overview of the latest research on the global climate since 2007. This is exciting because it is not just some press release by another think tank or activist group with an agenda. It is an extremely detailed monograph by a body of climate scientists that was established in 1988 by the U.N. and supported by the governments of 195 countries. Its work is vital in compiling the latest thinking about the role of human actions in global climate change.

Beauty and the Bobcat: 3-D nail polish is catchy yet uncomfortable

Other than pretty seasonal colors, there have been plenty of funky nail polish trends lately. One of the biggest trends in the nail polish world is 3-D, texturized finishes. I’m not usually one to experiment with anything too crazy, but a few polishes caught my eye recently and I decided to give them a try.

Green Beat: OU, Athens need to be environmental leaders

Athens is a progressive force for environmentalism. The solar panels at the Athens Community Center, recently revamped public bus service, strong local food culture and finely maintained bike paths are testaments to our civic pride and our eco-awareness.

Gamer Girl: Fun still to be had with board games, cards

Although I totally love video games, there are two other types of games that I love a lot, too: board games and card games. Sure, they might not be as exciting as the fast-paced, newest video game releases that are design marvels, but there is no way you can go wrong with a classic.

The PHILosopher: True Bobcats support, follow OU athletics

I love my school. Baker Center is always a blossoming beacon of student activity every day. Court Street bricks have witnessed some of my most memorable times as a Bobcat. I even appreciate Chubb Hall and the woman who always snarls at me when I argue that a debit card should not face that ridiculous surcharge every time I pay my student bill (if you happen to be this lady, allow me to get you a Chipotle burrito or flowers or something because this rivalry is four-years strong now).

Science with Dan: Popping pimples can prove deadly

For a better part of the last decade I have been sheepishly on the defensive at most times in the off chance that some raging maniac who lurks in dark alleys at night will finally succeed in his goal of murdering me. I do not know anyone, nor has anyone personally relayed such a story to me; however it seems like a truly rational thing to fear in my mind. There are, however, several legitimate threats that I simply disregard as outlandish and downright absurd. As a teen, growing up in the cold, hard suburbs of Pittsburgh, there was one risky behavior in particular that I feel was a serious threat to my life: pimple popping.

That's a Wrap: Money too important in film production

When people first began making movies, it was an art, a newfound way to interpret emotion through pictures and motion. The industry was predominantly women who told stories and directed, but at the time there was not much output because not many people would pay to see such films. It was more of an attraction that a few people would make for audience enjoyment. Eventually the industry began to grow because of the potential revenue films could make.
