What “Lifting Weights” Actually Means

Kiana Quinonez, Contributing Writer

Filed under Health and Fitness, Opinion & Editorials

Often, when you explain power-lifting to people, they think you’re trying to become a bodybuilder - I was one of those people. The first thing I told my friend when she asked me to start power-lifting was that I didn’t want to be buff, but so far that hasn’t been the case. If you’re wondering...

What Really is “Hipster Culture?”

What Really is “Hipster Culture?”

Kayra Clouden, Staff Writer

The term “hipster” can best be defined as a person who keeps up with fashion trends that lie outside of the cultural norm. When one used to think of a hipster, the image of someone who lives by their own rules comes to mind – the existentialists and the Tyler Durdens’ of the time. Today it seems...

Why You Should Join Band

Why You Should Join Band

Throughout my own experience in marching band, I have come to terms with the fact that just about any time I tell a story related to band, it will be interrupted with the line, “one time, at band camp.” This is fine, it all comes with being a part of band, so does being assumed as being a “band...

The Problem With the “Blue Lives Matter” Movement

The Problem With the “Blue Lives Matter” Movement

I see many students on this campus walk around with “Blue Lives Matter” apparel; from the hats to the t-shirts to the pants and even the flag in their room seen showing it off via social media, it’s their way to show pride for this cause. There are many reasons why “Blue Lives Matter” is irrelevant,...

I am married and have four kids. I am an electrical engineer who had aspirations of earning a Master’s degree...

Civility is Not Dead, Yet

Civility is Not Dead, Yet

In a room full of talking Connecticut residents waiting to hear their Senator speak, two men stood out from the rest. Not because they were sitting in the front row of the local New Haven high school, but because of the civil exchange that seems to be more newsworthy than if they had broken out in a...

My Internet Friendships Are Valid, Too

My Internet Friendships Are Valid, Too

Angela Tricarico, Staff Writer

Filed under Opinion & Editorials

When I look back now, I find it kind of funny how quick I was to disregard the advice of people older than me. It was all “don’t talk to strangers, Angela,” and “personal information shouldn’t go on the internet.” I definitely knew the dangers. I’d been scared into knowing them enough...

Filed under Opinion & Editorials

President Trump’s war on media outlets that he claims to be “fake” continues with a not-so-shocking-for-him move. In another effort to delegitimize the media, the White House barred media networks including CNN, BBC, The Guardian, New York Times, LA Times, POLITICO, and BuzzFeed from their media...

Privacy & Privilege: Don’t Rain on my Parade

Sixteen years ago, the idea of taking our shoes off at an airport seemed weary and precautious. The question of “am I a terrorist?” looped the brains of harmless travelers every time they walked through a security line. In the most recent years since the age of the internet, we ourselves have asked...

In response to recent controversy, Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“Negan” from AMC’s The Walking Dead) tweeted, “Holy crap people are stupid.” Well said, Jeffrey. Well said. Morgan’s tweet included an article from The Wrap, which explained what happened when a shopper saw what he thought to be an...

Why I Don’t Care About the Oscars

Why I Don’t Care About the Oscars

Reginald Walden, Contributing Writer
February 28
Filed under Movies, Opinion & Editorials

We’ve all had that moment. We saw a movie earlier in the year and loved every minute of it. We laughed, cheered, cried, and possibly blamed it on the small particles which always seem to permeate cinemas. Then, in February, we sit down to watch the Oscars, filled with more tension than an acrophobic...
