It seems like Rutgers never canceling classes on snow days is one of the worst parts of winter. Or maybe it’s getting stranded on the highway as you take the bus to class on a day with dreadful weather. But the truth is, these are nothing but inconveniences that dull in comparison to some of the more somber aspects of winter that many of us know too well.
Like the movies show us, a line out the door usually indicates that whatever is going on inside is incredible. That was just the case this past Friday, when the Douglass Diversity and Inclusion Program held its very first Women’s Day at Douglass.
Just as music is the lifeblood of culture, subgenres are similarly the lifeblood of the music industry. Umbrella genres of music, such as hip-hop and rock, have influenced hundreds of subgenres in which artists fall into different niches and explore different styles. For decades, these subgenres have served as industry milestones, responsible for some of the greatest chart-toppers and artists of today. Here’s a list of some of the most popular subgenres of music:
God is a woman. We might be playing Ariana Grande's song on repeat all month long, because March is National Women’s Month. It's time to overwear our “The Future is Female” t-shirts and reflect on all the goddesses in our lives.
More often than not, we are on the edge of our seats, glued to the TV as national news stories unfold, taking various twists and turns for weeks before arriving to the truth. From police car chases to murder investigations and missing persons cases, people show that no matter how jaded life may make us, humans have an innate tendency to seek justice.
Every time my grandmother calls me she asks, “Are you eating?” What she never asks is, “Are you getting enough sleep?” We prioritize and worry about so many things in our lives and the lives of others, but how often does the worry of sleep end up on our long list of daily concerns?
From movies to magazines to social media, it feels like the pressure to look perfect and dress like a fashionista is only rising.

If you’re scrolling through Instagram or Twitter it’s almost impossible to not stumble upon a meme or two. But the memes found on Instagram today are nowhere near the wholesome, or at least less serious, memes that dominated our feeds back in 2012.
Magazines, with their addiction to airbrushing and shock-value cover stories, have consistently sent people into a frenzy. From the 1991 Vanity Fair cover in which Demi Moore posed naked while pregnant to the 2012 Time Magazine cover of a mother breastfeeding her 3-year-old son, magazine covers have often been the subject of much debate and criticism. But that criticism constantly evolves.

Glitz, glamour, movie royalty and award statues of a very muscular gold man – the Oscars has it all. The 91st Academy Awards will air Feb. 24, but unlike previous years, it seems the world has been talking about the Oscars a lot more than usual. This year, the Oscars will air with no host for the first time in 30 years, and headline after headline shows that people can’t get enough of this story.

Over a year ago, I remember strolling through Twitter and seeing a tweet: "If you've been sexually harassed or assaulted write 'me too' as a reply to this tweet." The tweet, which was from October 2017, ignited the #MeToo movement that exposed dozens of men in Hollywood who either harassed, assaulted or raped women and men.
As classes begin and we try our hardest to let go of winter break, we may begin to forget, or even give up on, our New Year's resolutions.
Since Colin Kaepernick first sat during the national anthem in 2016, millions of people — including President Donald J. Trump — have argued over the legitimacy and place politics has in sports.
Tumblr, a blogging and social networking site, recently announced it was going to censor all adult content, generally recognized as a ban on pornography. Tumblr was founded in 2007 by a web developer and social entrepreneur David Karp.
