What do you mean Trump isn't the worst President ever? Have you gone insane?Truthfully, no; while Trump may have a terrible presidential reputation in many social and political circles, it takes more than just a few years to adequately judge the legacy that a person has left behind. History passes judgment...

Keep your eyes sharp, ears keen, and your skepticism at healthy levels while partaking in entertainment “news.”Let me make things clear: this is not a defense for R. Kelly, it is a defense for journalism and truth. That is why the performance of CBS and other media outlets alike is shameless ...

Apple is one of those companies that seems to be everywhere, but they are especially apparent in the pit of people's wallets. When you pay for an Apple product, you are not paying for a computer, a phone or headphones. You are paying for the privilege of owning a very special (somehow), Apple-certified product.E...

I do believe that we need border security, and I do believe a wall may be helpful to prevent illegal activity there. The criminals who endanger the lives of many with drugs and human trafficking should be held accountable for their deeds. A good way to keep security tight is to make sure you have as...

I really want to like Bernie Sanders.I enjoy his fiery speeches promoting a better future for us millennials, his reputation for being stubborn and sticking to his guns; his intense dislike for the establishment. These qualities have endeared this once obscure Senator from Vermont to millions of young ...

These days it is nearly impossible to watch the news without hearing a mention of President Trump or the US Government's single-minded incompetence in solving today's issues. You may be thinking "does this really matter to me-all this awful stuff-as an individual?"Would it be surprisin...

Virginity has always been a talking point. Since the first day of high school, it seems sex and losing your "v-card" were the only things on anyone's mind.

On a base level, advertisements (ads) are meant to connect potential buyers with products. On a deeper level, ads are meant to cause recognition. This commercial was a hit in that regard. Whether you loved the commercial, hated it, or didn't care you've been reminded about Gillette. Let me be frank, I l...

Imagine a huge casino for children, a place with no supervision, specifically designed for them to gamble away their parent's money. They go in and soon get addicted to the thrill. The desire to "win big" leads them to spend more and more, without understanding what they are doing to themselves. This...

*Note the following claims are personally-based from my own views and not from interviews or research.* It’s Saturday afternoon. My roommate and I walk out of Great Northern Coffee, otherwise known as “train-car-cafe,” and take a sip of iced coffee. We unlock our bikes and pedal past the frat...
