Gaggle is a new controversial app that has aided in the sharing of explicit photos around the UA campus, according to UAPD officers.  I think this is a relevant topic of discussion for this week because once again, we’re seeing a resurgence of the “naked pics” era.

Gaggle.  I downloaded it, for the sake of understanding my assignment of course.  After I did, in fact, download it, I can confirm that it’s a local message board, much like the popular app Yik Yak.  However, it allows students to share photos, and 98 percent of them are of naked women who y…

In 140 characters or fewer, you can tell the whole world you’re living it up in Miami, or that you’ve never had In-N-Out Burger or that you’re simply bored at home. That’s right, I’m talking about Twitter. Twitter is an amazing invention—you can tweet out, hashtag, follow, unfollow, mention,…

It’s an age-old debate:  Should colleges pay their athletes?  It’s a question I enjoy attempting to answer, but before we talk about how I feel, let’s talk about how America feels.  According to a recent study from ABC News and the Washington Post, about 66 percent of Americans oppose paying…

The knock on my door came quite unexpectedly.  I wasn’t counting on any visitors, so I turned my music down and headed for the door.  A gentleman was standing outside, and he absolutely needed my help—if I would only buy a couple magazines to send to orphans, he could go on a trip to the Car…

When people go to college they’re instantly infected with what I like to call the “spring break ideal.”  The spring break ideal is defined as such: The idea that spring break in real life is going to be just like spring break on TV.  I’m here to tell you that although spring break is necessa…

Things have been heating up in Russia, and this isn’t another article about the Olympics.  It’s time to talk about Putin and Obama and Ukraine, oh my!  When world powers engage in word wars, real wars very seldom follow.  But as is evidenced by past disputes, America considers itself the gua…

The Olympics are a stake in cultures all over the world. Millions and billions of people tune in each year to see the Olympic Games and see people from their country represent and hopefully bring home the gold.  This year during the preliminary press for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Ru…

Well, science fiction is becoming ever more real, and I’m convinced the only reason we don’t have flying cars is because air traffic control is already hard enough.  The United States Navy announced recently that it will deploy its first laser, which it has coined “directed energy,” later th…

Coca-Cola debuted their latest commercial at the Super Bowl and it struck an immediate nerve with viewers across the nation. The song “America the Beautiful” is sung not only in English throughout the commercial, but in six others as well. People are up in arms about this all over social med…

The Super Bowl was actually quite exciting this year, I wasn’t really rooting for either team but it was entertaining to watch the Broncos get their you know what handed to them (I mean they got hammered...so bad…).  Anyway, what was more entertaining than that were the commercials, my top f…

America is a country built on immigrants.  We exist as the country we are today, because a bunch of people came here looking to get away from something.  Coca-Cola has nothing to get away from.  They have an advertisement they should be proud of, and a public they should pity—well, if the pu…

So here’s the deal. Because of the fact that I am one angry American right now, I’m going to have to give the President a solid D. And the only reason he’s not getting an F is because I’m blown away by the fact that he is still as good-looking as he is considering the stress he’s been under.

Health Care. The two magic words that spurn political debates in the most unlikely yet likely places for pretentious Democrats and Republicans to go at it...like Starbucks. Story time. So I’m sitting in Starbucks the other day, and the TV is on, channeled to CNN and OF COURSE they’re talking…

I’m the first one to step up and say I know next to nothing about politics, so obviously I haven’t exactly kept myself up to date on the health care reforms going on in our nation. This is not smart since it does affect me, so I decided to try to find out just how much.

I don’t know about you, but this looming government shutdown in Washington is STRESSING ME OUT. This crisis reminds me of the whole debt crisis of 2008 when Boehner went behind the Republicans and “Young Guns” back and made secret plans with President Obama and then it backfired and the Hous…
