A study recently found that man’s best friend could possibly see in slow motion, which may suggest dogs could potentially detect spirits.
It’s been more than a year since quarters gave up the ghost, but the pain of losing quarters still keeps me up at night.
It took traveling more than 6,000 miles, crossing an international border, losing luggage and running on barely any sleep — all in about four days — for me to come to one simple realization:
After spending years treating my cellphones with care, the inevitable happened. I dropped my beloved Samsung Galaxy S3 on my driveway, leaving it to one of the worst fates cellphones can face: a cracked screen (I’m accepting condolence cards for my loss).
On this day in 1890, Yosemite National Park was named a national park by the National Park Service, which is within the U.S. department of the interior. Interestingly enough, the park is currently closed on it’s anniversary due to the government shutdown.
This week I was given the opportunity of a lifetime.
Ohio University is most definitely a heaven on earth. Big Mama’s diets mixed with a perfect attendance record at Liquor Pitchers are things I might mention on my résumé. Today, for one reason or another, it finally dawned on me… I’m a senior. It took me six weeks to realize I am about to leave my beloved Athens.
Many things have been written against lifestyle environmentalism. Some writers attack it as unnecessary, believing it exaggerates the damage human beings do to the environment. This is common among those who deny global warming is occurring or is caused by human beings. Others admit we are harming the planet, but argue that the focus on personal choices ignores the role technology and policy decisions have to play in decreasing and reversing these negative outcomes. Those of us who are convinced that the former group are ignoring the evidence find it easy to brush their arguments aside, but the latter present a stronger challenge. Do they have a point?
Even with so many films based on the lives of great people like Jobs, 12 Years a Slave and Saving Mr. Banks, it still came as a surprise to me when they announced a movie based on Mr. Rogers.
I did it. I went out of my comfort zone and purchased drugstore-brand foundation. As I said previously: I’m a beauty brat and although there are some drugstore-brand products I enjoy, I don’t like to skimp when it comes to foundation. After my Benefit Hello Flawless powder shattered, I haven’t been able to afford purchasing a new one and decided I’d give drugstore products a try — and it actually wasn’t too bad.
In a culture where sex is king, it takes something of great significance to be viewed as taboo and immoral. “Stigma” is a label that is becoming less and less common as our society grows more accepting at a seemingly daily rate. Today, the only stigmas that stick out like a sore thumb on the surface tend to be related to drugs, alcoholism and physical abuse, among others. One that is of much higher importance, yet rarely comes to mind and is hardly ever discussed, is the act of inbreeding in humans. We tend to think of inbreeding as something savage that rarely occurs and when it does, it happens in places on the other end of the globe or by heinous pedophiles. The truth of the matter is that this practice is all too common and you don’t have to travel far from home or even your dorm to find examples in the flesh.
On Monday, we ran an article “Marching on Blurred Lines,” in which a Post reporter followed Ohio University’s Marching 110 in the week before a home game at Peden Stadium.
On Sept. 25, 1962, the newly crowned King of Yemen, Imam Muhammad al-Badr, was dethroned by a plot conceived by Abdullah al-Sallal, who then declared Yemen to be a republic.
Last week, I went where few girls have gone before.
On its website, the Patton College of Education claims it tries to foster its graduates to be “change agents” in the field the education, but opportunities are few and far between to change the college itself.
I live in the self-proclaimed “Animal House.”
We must balance discussions of what is wrong with the world by recognizing what changes in our actions are needed to make it right. Acknowledging our global consequences as consumers and members of organizations is sometimes needed, but seeing the forest of the present is rarely enough to motivate local tree-planting. To galvanize ourselves or other people, sometimes we need to focus on one tree at a time.
Now that the Toronto International Film Festival has come to a close, many people are dying to know what movies topped the list this year. 12 Years a Slave, which was shown Friday in Toronto, generated a lot of positive buzz at this year’s festival. It was said to be so good that it is already being considered for an Oscar nomination, hype which will surely come to fruition.
I remember it clearly.
