Another summer has come and gone leaving in its wake fond memories of beautiful weather, beach days, and schedules that were open. With school upon students once again and the workload of classes bearing down, many things that were once valued this summer, sleeping 12 hours a day,  just don’t get the time of day anymore. While school and homework should be a priority in students’ lives right now, there are other things that time should be made for, namely, working out. Some thoughts that may be occurring now may be, “Exercise? Ain’t nobody got time for that”, or the, “I want to but I hate getting sweaty” crap. Continue reading

The troubles facing homeless youth made headlines this summer when Miley Cyrus’ date to MTV’s Video Music Awards was Jesse Helt, a 22-year-old homeless man from Oregon.  Cyrus faced backlash when the media disclosed that Helt had outstanding warrants. In the face of criticism, Cyrus tweeted, “Does looking down upon the homeless help people excuse their inaction?” Continue reading

It seems that whenever you hear about anything relating to the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena genre these days, it is accompanied by a condescending tone that undermines the topic at hand. Though games like League of Legends and Dota 2 are indisputably the most popular out there, a somewhat pervasive sentiment of dismissal seems to run through the conversations had not only by the press and media, but also by everyday hobbyists and enthusiasts. I think I’ve been able to understand where this type of attitude comes from, and I’d love to air my thoughts on the matter, but first, a little background. Continue reading

The previous August of 2014 marked the 50th anniversary of Freedom Summer.  The event known as Freedom Summer was part of the Civil Rights Movement (1954-1968 CE) in an attempt to promote voting and education for African-Americans.  Volunteers such as college students and Wednesday Women were involved in this memorable moment of American history.  The efforts of such people were not met without resistance.

In a time where the phone in your pocket is capable of providing you with interactive entertainment, along with an immense suite of practical utility all packaged in a portable format, it becomes harder and harder for dedicated gaming consoles to be relevant. However, as the Darwinian model predicts, the companies that manufacture and distribute these machines have attempted to adapt. Just in the past year we have seen Microsoft attempt to wriggle its way into the living rooms of people outside of their target audience by implementing television aggregating capabilities into the newly debuted Xbox One, essentially making it as much a set-top-box as it is a gaming console.
