OPINION

When Viruses Attack

It was 1:45 a.m. on a Tuesday morning, and something was seriously wrong. I had already crawled into bed when I realized I didn't know what bus I would have to take to get to school the next day.


OPINION

So Where Did You Go to School?

It's unfortunate how much a school name matters in the job game. We all know the complaint. Regardless of the actual educational experience you had or the amount of work you put in, the odds are that when competing with someone from Harvard, Cornell, or maybe even Ithaca or Geneseo, all other things being equal, the guy or gal with UB on a resume has a slight disadvantage from the get-go. Now, as disheartening as it may be, there is undoubtedly some basis for such a bias.


OPINION

"BAH, HUMBUG"

It's the most wonderful time of the year, so make sure you have plenty of money or else the spirit of Christmas might be lost on you. The days when all you wanted for Christmas were your two front teeth are dead and gone.

Can't We All Just Get a Keg?

This week marked a very important milestone in my life. Why? Because as of now, I am less than a half year away from my 21st birthday. I know what you're thinking. How could anyone be so excited to start drinking that they're counting down six months in advance?

U.S. Nuclear Upgrades Face Problems With Treaties

The White House and Senate Republicans continue to hash out prospects on costs and purposes involved in a new nuclear arms program, which would allow for an annual accumulation of 80 new warheads for the United States Military.


OPINION

I Can Read Real Good

Sometimes we need to stop relying on others for advice and start listening to our own intuition. However, when you get such compelling advice as, "Never date a girl who can read," I can understand how one would be hesitant to pass that up. For some guys, avoiding any girl who happens to be literate might seem like a great suggestion.


OPINION

I'm Pro Junk-Food and I Vote

Between a healthy diet of pizza rolls, regular bowls of chocolate ice cream and more doughnuts than I'd care to admit, it would be fair to say I don't eat as healthy as I could.
