Sharpie Gate: Trump, Meteorologist-in-Chief

In a regular society, mistakes are made – it’s a natural human phenomenon. Perfection may be something we strive for, but it’s impossible to achieve. People have to learn to take their mistakes, apologize for them, and use it to improve themselves in the future. Unfortunately, this isn’t a skill President Trump has seemed to master yet.

Everyone Wins, Fordham Still Loses in Latest College Rankings

In his annual address to the University community regarding Fordham’s standing in the latest college rankings, Fr. McShane led with an old favorite: “I am writing to report on this year’s University rankings, in which I’m afraid we’ve had mixed success.” The Rankings Email always begins with this line, or some variation of it, such as 2018’s “I am writing to report that it has been a mixed week for Fordham in the rankings,” or 2017’s tragic, “Unfortunately, Fordham dipped from 60 to 61.”

Stoking the Flames

Around 4 a.m. on September 14th, ten drones flew over Saudi Arabi sinking a total of nineteen missiles into Aramco oil processing facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais. Fourteen of the strikes destroyed storage tanks, three damaged processing trains, and the remaining two did not hit any infrastructure or equipment. Thankfully, no one died in the attacks; though the number of injured remains unknown. The attack halted half of Saudi Arabia’s daily oil production, representing five percent of global production. Saudi officials and business leaders expect production to return to baseline by the end of September and will tap into reserves to maintain current export levels.

But upon doing some research, everything changed, and I realized that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is easily one of Tarantino’s most brilliant films yet, and something close to a masterpiece.

Anime for Dummies

With My Hero Academia season 4 coming out in the next few weeks (as well as the recent trend toward live action remakes of beloved cartoons), now could possibly be the worst time to talk about the past season of whatever the hell Japan has been making animation-wise.

Review: Norman Fucking Rockwell! by Lana Del Rey

One of Fordham University’s most well-known graduates is back, bold, and better than ever with the release of her sixth studio album, Norman Fucking Rockwell! With the release of this retrospective record, Lana not only makes you nostalgic for an America you never knew, but also encourages listeners to become more active in changing the current state of this so-called freedom land.

Review: Lover by Taylor Swift

Although Lover is not Taylor Swift’s first album, it is the first one that she owns completely. As a result of this total ownership, Lover is an album that knows her worth, skips down 16th avenue loving life and love itself, occasionally wondering how different things would be if she was a man, and no longer letting her fears define her.
