Social media. It is what dominates many people’s free time. People share news about their births, post photos from last weekend’s party and tag themselves at the new restaurant down the block. But these instantaneous means of communication do much more than let you brag about your goings on; they make for a prime pipeline of communication in times of emergency. Yesterday was a great example of this with the Boston Marathon bombing.
Yesterday I stopped into the shop Here On The Corner, located across the street from the northwest side of campus, literally right on the corner of College Avenue. Upon entering I was greeted by a sign that said “Fashion is not necessarily about labels, it’s not about brands, it’s about something else that comes from you.” I loved this quote, which lead me into this boutique to see what it was all about.
About six years ago (back in eighth grade for me), everyone started to hear about a new social website called Facebook. It was the hip place to go to connect with friends on the ever-growing Internet. Most people who signed up to join the site loved it and bragged about it being the future of communication. It did become a giant in the cyber world, with more than one billion active users. But something changed over the last six years that has soured the relationship between Facebook and a multitude of its users — and that change was Facebook itself.
For the past two weeks my printer has rested peacefully in the middle of my living room floor. I have refused to dispose of it in the hopes that it will serve as motivation for writing about our tenuous, complex relationship. The frustrations and joys of printer and Harmony mirror history’s not-so-perfect couples, from Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn to F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. We have sparred, lurching into attack with the fierce battle cries of Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort. We have also worked together during tenuous truces, like the French and the colonialists during the Revolutionary War (school being the war we must overcome).
Coachella starts this weekend, flowers are blooming and I still haven’t given you a DIY project for a floral headpiece like I promised in my “What To Pack For A Music Festival” post.
The Internet has given society so much. We can find out whatever information we need, share news with friends in an instant and even keep up with an onslaught of cute animal photos (yeah, we both know you love them too). One of the best aspects of the Internet community is how society combines its offerings to make things possible that could not have occurred without it. The open source community is one of the biggest achievements thus far. Now, you are probably thinking, “how can this open source stuff be such a big advancement, if I have not even heard about it?”
A lot of people think that the Civil War took place strictly between the mostly northeastern states and The South. Although The South stretched all the way to Louisiana, we don’t normally consider Arizona being a part of that geographic region. Well, believe it or not, the American Civil War made it all the way over to the southwest. Pichacho Peak State Park is located in southern Arizona. During the California Gold Rush, a wagon road was constructed through the mountain and it was deemed “Picacho Pass.” After the Gold Rush settled down, the pass was used by the Butterfield Overland Stage Company to transport people and goods to the west. However, one of the most interesting events that happened there is known as the most western battle of the Civil War.
The college lifestyle isn’t luxurious to say the least. For most of us it’s the first time being on our own, and between rent, food and textbooks, there isn’t much money left in the bank. So how do you stay stylish while being a college student on a budget? Here are five different tips that will help you do so without breaking the bank.
There is always something new happening in the world of technology, from new ways to interact with your car to any sort of other improvements and innovations. Any news in the tech world is intriguing (for me, at least), but sometimes there are stories that just make you go, “. . . Why? Why is that a story? That is so weird!” Especially with April Fool’s Day this week, there were some . . . how can I put it . . . interesting posts. Here are some of the recent articles that caught my eye:
ASU is always ready for the best, which is why the theme of the fourth and final SPM print issue this year is "Best of ASU." This edition focuses on the bold endeavors that make people stand out, either in their personal lives or in the business world, and we celebrate the excellent taste of our readers who voted during our polling period. In this issue, we encourage all of you to go after new foods, stop by different shops and find a new outdoor adventure.
The term falling tends to have a negative connotation of being victim of the force of gravity, and that is many times the case. We fall down many times whether it be literally or metaphorically.
This semester I have been taking a jewelry making/metalworking art class at the Herberger Institute. Before the class I never really made jewelry other than friendship bracelets. The class has showed me how easy it to create simple pieces of jewelry from scratch; all you need are the right tools, a designer’s mind and time.
No, I am not reviewing the Smart Car. I am, however, discussing a way to make your car smarter.
Right now, popular media is in a love affair with historical bio-pics and that’s great! “Lincoln,” starring Daniel Day-Lewis and directed by Stephen Spielberg, made great box-office numbers and walked away from this year’s Academy Awards with two Oscars. Another movie in this vein recently released was “Hyde Park on Hudson” starring Bill Murray as Franklin Delano Roosevelt. This one was a flop, going in and out of movie theaters with few people even acknowledging its existence. However, the biggest issue with both of these movies was the controversy over their historical inaccuracy, which was rampant among academic communities. Historians say the films are entirely misconceptions about the past, embellished for entertainment. However, I don’t see films as a detriment to historical academia, but a way for those who aren’t the biggest history buffs to explore historical themes.
Yesterday I took a mini road trip down to Tucson to see Jeff Mangum from Neutral Milk Hotel play a show at the Rialto Theatre. I never really go down to Tucson so I decided to spend the day there wandering around the countless number of vintage shops to treasure hunt.
I am a huge fan of getting someone a unique gift. It has to be something that shows the relationship between that person and me. But as everyone knows, it can be quite difficult to find that perfect item for a holiday or birthday. Luckily with the Internet, gift options are nearly endless. While I have a couple sites that I rely on for most of my digital spending, there have been a couple that have caught my eye.
This month has transformed me.
Spring is in the air and boys I didn’t forget about you and your killer fashion sense.
Movement, to most of us, requires little to no effort.
