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.
After I walked into the Center for Latino Arts and Culture (CLAC), the first words Angelica Calderon, a Mason Gross School of the Arts junior, said to me were, “Do you want something to eat?” A few minutes later we were sitting across from each other sharing a plate of Mangú, a traditional Dominican dish.
Technology has been changing the way we view education. For a long time now, educators have been cutting back on textbooks and investing in advanced technology to enhance learning, from PowerPoints to online test-taking. Podcasting has been around for a while now, and although it may not be as popular as it used to be, it's coming back as one of the most effective learning tools in educational systems.
They say trends come back in style. Circa 2019, puffer jackets, overalls, faux fur and neon colors are coming back. Who would have thought that they’d be all the rage in this decade? Some things that haven’t changed, though, are the ever-present marketing scams that profit on consumers' nostalgia.
On Feb. 19, the world heard news of one of the most influential figures in fashion passing. Karl Lagerfeld, who was widely known as the creative director of luxury fashion house Chanel, died at the age of 85.
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.
There’s no question that we’re surrounded by advertisements, and the obvious truth is that we don’t really care about it. From product placement in our favorite shows and movies to the panel ads on an overcrowded REXL, ads are a quotidian feature of our lives.

Marshall Mathers is undoubtedly one of the most popular and critically celebrated rappers of all time. He’s reached a sort of fame that very few in any artistic medium can claim to understand. He’s been in the middle of countless controversies and generally escaped unscathed. Most importantly, he's managed to face his own inner demons, namely prescription drug addiction, and come out on the other side. There’s only one problem: Eminem still reads his reviews.
I was probably in fifth grade when skinny jeans became trendy, and I remember specifically asking my mother to find a pair for me. I wasn’t old enough to really shop on my own yet, and she came home with “slim leg” pants from The Children’s Place that just weren’t going to cut it for me.
To mark the 30th anniversary of the serial killer’s execution by electric chair in 1989, Netflix’s thrilling docu-series “Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes” was released in the closing days of January. Since its release, people have voraciously discussed the show’s four comprehensive episodes that revisited the twisted psyche of Theodore Robert Bundy, who committed multiple heinous crimes against innocent young women in the 1970s.

Well-timed alongside the Chinese Lunar New Year, the arrival of Khiang H. Hei's featured exhibit of his photography series carry a number of strikingly lucid images to the downstairs level of the Zimmerli Art Museum this year. Taken in the spring of 1989, the scenes are tinted by the nostalgic, technicolor saturation of Hei's student film camera.
If Tinah Ogalo, a School of Arts and Sciences junior, isn't in class, she's either at her internship, working at her on-campus job, holding down her executive board position at her sorority or on her phone making business calls and strategically posting online.

Maybe it was the way David Fincher’s “The Social Network” framed the Facebook story, with a Sorkin screenplay to boot.
