In our society, economic growth is typically portrayed as a good thing. However, this is environmentally problematic, which I’ll discuss in a later column. But there are a number of  reasons why we might assume economic growth is beneficial.

College Matt-ers: Despite ranking, OU students don't get 'best bang' for buck

As I was reading my social media news feed this week, I noticed a number of my friends — and Ohio University itself — beaming over the fact that OU had been ranked second among universities where students “get the best bang for their buck.” Now, there are a lot of things I love about OU, but affordability is not one of them, so naturally I was skeptical of such a claim.

Post Column: 24-hour filibuster longest in history

The day was August 28, 1957. Following the passage of Brown v. Board of Education in 1954, whites in the South had begun to violently rise up and commit heinous acts against African Americans, assaults and including church bombings.

Post Column: Natural Light can sometimes be a delight

We’re a little sad to be going. We’ve enjoyed telling you all about the beers to drink and the beers to avoid. We’ve enjoyed getting together every week to revisit an old favorite or take a risk on new brew. It’s been a wonderful experience. But this experience is nowhere near as wonderful as taking that first, refreshing gulp of Natural Light.

Post Column: Shifting Tides: Music marks times for us to revisit later

The morning was my time for coffee, a cigarette and a song. My time of paradise before my first class, but only with the sun on my face. When it’s warm, it’s ecstasy. But even during the harshest winter mornings, I couldn’t help feeling sublime when I saw more of my breath than smoke as the sun turned the snow into a layer of white glitter or the grass simply remained frozen with dew. But it was always the song that set off the morning right.

It's OK to play sexist games; just recognize it

A lot of wise women have said a lot of wise words about what feminism is. Ani DeFranco, a pretty cool folk musician, summed it up pretty nicely: “My idea of feminism is self-determination, and it’s very open-ended: every woman has the right to become herself, and do whatever she needs to do.”

Post Column: Fan call-ins are unfair to high-profile golfers

About a week and a half ago, on April 14, one of professional golf’s biggest tournaments of the season came to a close. The 2013 Masters Golf Tournament was held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. History was made with Adam Scott winning over Angel Cabrera in an intense playoff to decide who would win the coveted green jacket. Scott became the first Australian competitor to win the Masters.

Post Column: College is ending, but denial is just beginning

Well, friends, here we are at the end of another semester. As I look out the barred window of this cop car at the verdant landscape of College Green, I can’t help but reflect on what a great time I’ve had here at Ohio University. I’ve made friends, learned a lot about life and had more fun than I ever thought possible.
