Bernie Sanders wins at promoting his ideas

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

By Troy Daugherty

At this point Bernie Sanders is most likely not going to be the Democratic nominee.

After this Tuesday’s primaries, in which Clinton won four out of the five states, he is behind over 300 pledged delegates. That number rises to over 800 when super-delegates, which are stupid, are calculated in as well.

That means that he would have to win around 80% of the remaining delegates to get the nomination.

By Casey Jones

Almost every college student has a social network account, such as Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr.

However, many users have probably noticed that over the course of the past year or so that many posts have turned from a standard status, tweet, or text post to a seemingly never-ending stream of links to “news” articles that dance around whatever topic was mentioned in the headline.

So, here are my 13 amazing ways to avoid click-bait media! You won’t believe number 6.

One: Avoid any links that start with a number followed by “ways to…” or anything of the sort. This is the key giveaway to basically any “Buzzfeed” style news article.

Transgenderism of children is just child abuse

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

By Angela Lingg

Child abuse—those two words can make anyone’s blood boil with anger and their heart break with sadness. The smallest most innocent member of our societies are to be protected and nurtured.

The College of Pediatricians recently published a controversial statement, written by several medical doctors, to educators and legislators to “reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex.”

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

By Ethan Ball

Psilocybin mushrooms, otherwise known by their street names of psychedelic mushrooms or “boomers,” are nothing new to humans.

Historians believe that hallucinogens may have been used as far back as 9000 BCE in North Africa.

There are collectively more than 200 species of psilocybin mushrooms, ranging from the psilocybe azurescens, aka “Flying Saucer Mushrooms,” to psilocybe cubensis, aka “Shrooms.”

Stereotypes feed the fire of overt racism

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

By Casey Jones

In modern society, many people believe racism to be a thing of the past.

However, with the rise of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential campaign, it is clear that this is not the case. In fact, a world that is free of racism may never come to be.

There have been societal problems between different ethnic groups throughout the course of history, but why is that?

Clinton’s lead is not quite what it seems

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

By Troy Daugherty

If you have been keeping up with the Democratic Primary, then you have probably noticed that Hillary Clinton has compiled a huge lead.

Or, at least, it looks like a huge lead, looking just at the graphs.

However, a lot of these graphs are misleading because they include super-delegates into the delegate counts for each candidate.

Cursing is a hard habit to break, but it’s worth it

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

By Taryn Gillespie

Growing up, cursing was a big no-no.

Whether you got soap, lemon juice, hot sauce of something else in the mouth, it was a reminder to not say it again.

Saying a curse word at school was an even bigger mistake.

First you have to visit the principal’s office, then punishment from your parents when you got home.

International Women’s Day hasn’t helped yet

By Branson Strasner

International Women’s Day is a holiday celebrated in much of the world, primarily in Russia and its surrounding countries.

The American Socialist Party first observed the holiday in 1908 and it has since spread through other socialist movements throughout Russia, China, Cuba and other smaller countries.

These oppressive governments may have used the holiday as propaganda to make women feel better about themselves, and ignore the problems they were facing.

Avoid using credit cards as a quick fix

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

By Ethan Ball

In college, credit cards can be a dangerous solution to fix a financial problem.

You go to your nearest McDonalds, spend $6 on a meal, and flush it down with a $5 drink from Starbucks. You don’t even exchange money; just swipe your plastic card.

Finding your career is like finding your flavor in life

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

By Lariena Nokes

Garlic is an enjoyable flavor. It compliments so many foods and works as an ingredient in so many wonderful dishes.

Garlic has its own signature that cannot be replaced or faked.

Mandarin oranges are also really enjoyable for their own special qualities and possibilities. They can be enjoyed in salads or just in a bowl of fruit.

For the skilled cook mandarin orange juice can be reduced into the delectable sauce for mandarin chicken because the flavor is flexible.
