Post Column: From the Bleachers: Nine weeks in, sports are still confusing

It’s the beginning of Week 9, that sweet spot in the semester when we start to wish we were still on quarters so we could be prepping for finals right now, instead of finishing up midterms. Because I’m in the studying spirit, I thought I’d conduct a little self-assessment regarding what I’ve learned so far about sports. There are areas in which I think I’m improving, and others that still need some work. Here’s the breakdown of my pass/fail sports-knowledge midterm.

Post Column: Politics have a place on social networks

As I watched the presidential debate last week, I found myself mindlessly scrolling through social media during commercials. We’re all used to them by now; they’re almost as inevitable as the “Everybody Rides” commercial past 1 a.m.: political statuses and tweets. Some live to write them, while others can hardly stomach them.

Post Column: Two easy meals as good as one fancy dish

You know those weekends when you go to two great parties you never intended on going to, and you don’t even care about the party you didn’t go to? For me, that was my weekend in the world of food.

Post Column: 'Mr. Marmalade' an uproarious pleasure

I’ve never understood the allure of theater. Why would someone spend $100 to see a play with a production value of several thousand dollars when they could see a movie for $10 with a production value of millions? Is theater cultured? Broadway ran the Spiderman musical, and that is many things, but it sure isn’t cultured.

Post Letter: Bullying doesn't end when college begins

Being bullied is not new to me. I have been overweight most of my life and have heard my fair share of chubby and fat remarks. I thought when I went to college that the maturity level would rise, and the amount of bullying would fall. My couple years here have proven me wrong.

Post Column: Yesterday's long line was a real adventure

Captain’s log, day 21. We have entered the third week of our wait, and the patience of the men grows thin. Around me the line for the Obama rally stretches like some primordial sky-serpent, wrapping around Walter Hall and the streets beyond.

Post Column: Sophia's Chinerica: American fast food doesn't stop at border

Before I arrived in Germany, I had some preliminary impressions of the Germans — for instance, their pride in their food and culture. But, for two weeks in Leipzig, I’ve been stunned by the number of people lining up to eat American fast food — there are always huge lines at the McDonald’s in Leipzig’s city center.

Post Column: No time to waste in the world of Pokemon

Hello there! Welcome to the world of Pokémon! My name is Oak! People call me the Pokémon Prof! This world is inhabited by creatures called Pokémon! For some people, Pokémon are pets. Others use them for fights. Myself, I study Pokémon as a profession.
