Until I met David Sedaris, I had no idea I cared about the lives of others. Ok, I’m not heartless. I just never thought a memoir could be so gripping, that another life could draw me so helplessly in. I had read memoirs before but only about astronauts or politicians that changed the landscape of t...

As the school year comes to a close, you know what that means: summer is on its way! Kids will be racing to the front doors of schools for the last time of the year, boarding their school buses and waving goodbye to the teachers, staff and other school workers for the season.

U.S. and Cuban ties have endured nuclear crises, a long U.S. embargo, and political hostilities. The diplomatic relationship remained frozen years past the Cold War, but began moving towards normalizing in 2015. The relaxing of tense relations with Cuba officially began in 2009, when President Barack ...

China has a stronger film industry than Hollywood. American filmmakers, panic now. Ok, not yet. Chinese films are not dominating American theatres just yet but it seems China’s booming film industry is on track to compete with the West. And who knows, maybe we will start seeing English films with Chine...

Comparatively speaking, voter turnout-- regardless of party-- in the U.S. has never been excellent. Though it’s been called “fundamental to a healthy democracy,” the American public has lacked the gusto that many other national democracies seem to have for their right. On average, turnout rate...

March 17th: the day in which green cloaks every object in sight, the stench of cabbage permeates every other home, shamrocks have their single day of yearly recognition, and everyone conveniently claims their great-great-great-great grandfather’s cousin twice-removed immigrated a hundred years ago....

When Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice released last weekend, I was shocked. I thought the film had been out for months. It had to have been after a year and a half of advertising. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is a member of a growing list of films that begin advertising long before their debuts. Film-mak...

“You can’t eat anything.” “You can’t have pizza?” “How do you live?” “You must be a health freak.” These are just some of the comments an individual on a gluten-free diet hears on a daily basis. There are many misconceptions of people that cut gluten out of their everyday diet. Com...

When the opening credits of Deadpool rolled up on the big screen, we all knew this would change the nature of the superhero film or put Fox $58 million in the hole. We’ll call the opening credits self-deprecating and leave it at that. To the delight of Fox, Deadpool’s R rating of nude scenes and middl...

Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend The Holocaust Memorial Museum. History books cannot replace the images and items left behind from this tragedy. With that said, it is important that mankind never forgets the inhumane acts committed during this era. Everyone should visit this museum so that we ma...
