EDITORIAL: Gigi Hadid’s assault is not a prank

EDITORIAL: Gigi Hadid’s assault is not a prank

While walking along the street, a man approaches you from behind, brusquely grabs you and lifts you without warning. You did not expect this act, you did not consent to this act and you do not even know this person. This is assault. Gigi Hadid, internationally renowned model, exited the Max Mara fashion show in Milan on Thursday with sister […]

HAUSER: Grenoble, C’est La Vie

HAUSER: Grenoble, C’est La Vie

Grenoble, France is not well-known by Americans. It is not often mentioned on the morning news, it rarely makes a blip in Twitter trends and it is not the center of an internationally renowned soccer team. For 21 Boston University students who landed in France on Aug. 28, however, Grenoble is home for the next four months. One of those […]

BURSTEIN: Marc Jacobs’ cultural appropriation is not art

BURSTEIN: Marc Jacobs’ cultural appropriation is not art

New York Fashion Week, perhaps one of the most notable biannual events, just concluded this past week and will not return until next season. Fashion Week always manages to produce wild runway shows, A-list celebrity sightings and, my personal favorite, loads of pictures of Anna Wintour. However, it’s not always just fun and games, as Fashion Week is often peppered […]

EDITORIAL: School lunchrooms, the next American battleground

EDITORIAL: School lunchrooms, the next American battleground

The cafeteria is the most intimidating place in the world for middle schoolers. Everyone is there, everyone is looking and everyone is judging. One wrong move and the stares only intensify. If you’re different in any way and self-conscious about that difference, the cafeteria is a nightmare. However intimidating the lunchroom may be, school lunches are a vital part of […]

JOHNSTON: What food says about the 2016 political environment

JOHNSTON: What food says about the 2016 political environment

It’s not often that food consumption becomes a major topic of a tightly fought political race, but when you’re really stuck between two ridiculous candidates, it might be helpful to acknowledge their take on diets. One can only assume that Hillary Clinton is no novice when it comes to fine dining. She has lived the glory life since she went […]

STROINSKI: Few bad factory farms ruin whole bunch, and small farmers pay

STROINSKI: Few bad factory farms ruin whole bunch, and small farmers pay

If there’s one thing everyone loves doing, it’s eating. A meal is a social experience, a chance to come together and exchange stories after a day of living separate lives. And the food we put on the table is just as important as the people who congregate around it; American food culture, once a beacon of Wonder Bread and trans-fat, […]

OLIVIER: Are smartphones smarter than we think?

OLIVIER: Are smartphones smarter than we think?

Governed almost entirely by the infinite possibilities of this age’s technological advancements, we’ve fallen victim to the seduction of the smartphone. Our iPhones and Androids are no longer simply mobile devices; what was once a separate entity used for basic communication has now become a key aspect of our identity, a part of ourselves we cannot otherwise fulfill. We’re all […]

LAUNGJESSADAKUN: We’re not evil, are we?

LAUNGJESSADAKUN: We’re not evil, are we?

Three of my favorite characters of modern-day television are Frank Underwood from “House of Cards,” BoJack Horseman from the eponymous Netflix original and Saul Goodman from “Better Call Saul.” Perhaps there is a small, sadistic part in us that takes pleasure in seeing good people fail or bad people succeed. Or maybe there is another part of us that feels […]

EDITORIAL: It shouldn’t take a Skittles meme to trigger policy conversations

EDITORIAL: It shouldn’t take a Skittles meme to trigger policy conversations

Day in and day out, we have our routines. Our schedule is organized and then completed, to be repeated the next day. We fall into our patterns, and exist in a sort of bubble. It takes certain events to pull us from this haven and remind us that there are things beyond Boston University’s campus that are of great importance. […]
