Surprise, Moses wasn't white

·

Ridley Scott’s new movie, "Exodus: Gods and Kings," is the newest attempt at a biblical re-do that has got a lot of people asking the question, “Why is everyone so white?”

Work without meaning

·

A year old article written by Anthropology professor David Graeber stirred some controversy when Graeber began questioning exactly how necessary all these jobs that have been created within the last half-century really are.  Of course, Graeber calls himself out, asking from the readers’ perspective: who are you to say what jobs matter and which don’t?

Don't forget the future

How one frat ruined Christmas

·

Holiday parties are boring.  They’re just sad get-togethers where you eat snowman-shaped sugar cookies and moan about the weather.  College students try to make it fun with ugly Christmas sweaters and a lot of peppermint Schnapps and we’re more inclined to complain about exams and final projects and how little sleep we’ve had.  But even that gets boring.

We need a renewed focus on CAPS

·

As this semester ends, I find myself continually reflecting on a few things. The Indiana Daily Student ran two pieces about student well-being and sexual violence on campus that were insightful, but filled me with a sense of frustration and hopelessness. Even in my classes people expressed anger.

So long, farewell

I don’t feel qualified to write one of these, a “goodbye column.”   I need to be older, wiser.

Dead week is anything but

The week before finals is supposed to be free of any major exams in order to give students free time to study for finals week.

The pleasure is mine

·

The representation of sexual pleasure in pornography is often skewed and offers an unrealistic representation.

Not so humanely raised after all

·

Imagine a chicken farm in Who Knows Where, Middle America, where an abundance of healthy, happy chickens are endlessly frolicking about in the open air, pecking and scratching about to their hearts content.
