COLUMN: Snapchat and globalization

·

Everyone Snapchats. I Snapchat. You Snapchat. He/she/it Snapchats. There is no denying this popular app is a fun way to keep in touch with friends, entertain ourselves and send goofy selfies on the way to class. Since its launch in 2011, Snapchat users not only can send 10-second photos to their buddies, they can use Snapcash, Discover and Campus Stories. With Campus Story, I can see a photo or video a fellow Hoosier uploaded of Showalter Fountain.

COLUMN: Grand Old Party Poopers

·

Let’s put aside for a moment the pure absurdity of the number of candidates potentially vying for the Republican nomination for President of the United States.

COLUMN: Spare the rod

·

Sometimes I worry the things I write as a columnist or active social media user may come off as alienating to some of the important people in my life.

Google drive?

Editorial: Google Drive?

·

In our lifetime and the lifetimes of those before us, self-driving vehicles have seemed like an science-fiction impossibility.

Column: Millennial is might

·

When I began researching topics for this article, I was struck by the amount of articles about the employment — or rather unemployment — of millennials. The millennial label itself is often used to criticize the perceived narcissism of our generation, exaggerate the differences between generations and bemoan the woes of the current job market, especially for recent college graduates.

Column: Undeserved thanks after reversed false conviction

·

Just this week, Michael Kenneth McAlister, 58, was granted an absolute pardon for his wrongfully convicted rape charges back in 1986. Apparently, he wasn’t being heard much back in the late 1980s when the conviction took place.

Column: Tsarnaev's death penalty is too costly

·

On Friday, a federal jury sentenced Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death for the bombings at the 2013 Boston Marathon. He is twenty-one years old. He and his brother Tamerlan, who was killed in the ensuing police chase, planted explosives that killed three people, blew the legs off of seventeen others, and seriously injured two hundred and forty more.

Column: I cannot give a nod to Dad Bod

·

Ah, the Dad Bod. This new phenomenon has graced the Internet almost as swiftly as that extra chub has graced the bellies of the men sporting this apparently new body type. The trending body type refers to a man crouching on the latter half of his 30s, sitting shirtless in his living room, scratching his pudgy belly while simultaneously channel-surfing and sorting through emails on a Sunday morning.

Column: Gender's dress code

·

A former teacher and employee of my public school system in Indianapolis recently asked me to write a column detailing my opinion on school dress codes and uniforms.






STIgnorance

Editorial: An outbreak of ignorance and chlamydia

·

A high school in Texas that preaches abstinence-only sex education has found itself with a chlamydia outbreak so severe, warning notes were sent home to inform parents about the disease’s proliferation. As of Tuesday, officials in Crane Independent School District have reported 20 confirmed cases, which amounts to about 1 in 15 students.

Column: This is it, folks

·

Tomorrow, the Indiana University Class of 2015 is graduating. Right now, I look around my living room and find my roommates goofing off in their caps and gowns, making clever Harry Potter jokes and contemplating how best to decorate their caps. I, however, am not graduating this year.

Column: They tell us a lot of things

·

Everyone tells you what you should do when you graduate, but no one tells you how to do it.  There are a thousand decisions we have to make at the end of our time here.
