    Misery and Cowardice: Present and Accounted For

    My general problem with accounting majors may be biased. I’ll say that right away. Those I am closest to are two of my best friends and also my roommates, so I am constantly exposed to their almost perpetual complaints and expressions of the most loathsome hatred for their accounting homework.

    A More Sensitive Approach to Teen Moms

    I had teen pregnancy on my mind when I first sat down to read the Jan. 28 article “Dropping the Bomb on Teen Moms” by Viviana Garcia ’12. With the season finale of Teen Mom and another season of 16 and Pregnant in the works on MTV, I approached Garcia’s article with interest.

    Faith Matters

    It’s perfectly natural to struggle with your faith from time to time. Everybody—from the most devout believers to those who have a more casual relationship with the Church—has moments when God can seem to be absent from their lives.

    President’s Many Words Don’t Pack a Powerful Punch

    During the 2008 campaign, MSNBC talk-show host Chris Matthews claimed he was so emotionally struck by an Obama speech that a “tingle went down his leg.” Matthews seemed no less impressed with the president’s delivery of last week’s State of the Union address, the first of Obama’s term. Offering commentary after the conclusion of the speech, Matthews noted that he “forgot Obama was black for an hour.”

    Juiced Jerks, but Genuine?

    Last Thursday, viewers across the country tuned in to the season finale of the show that everyone’s fist-pumping about. Two questions burned within us: What went down between Snooki and Mike in the hot tub, and what will become of Ronnie and Sammi’s flourishing romance?

    Studio Insider: A Behind-The-Scenes Take on Good Tunes

It’s pretty catchy, so you look the artist up and buy the CD, or maybe purchase the single on iTunes. You listen to it on repeat, burn it on mix CDs, share it with your friends…but have you ever wondered what goes into making that great sounding single that you love so much?
