We can’t stop hating on Onision By Meredith McLaughlin (Editor-in-Chief) and Gabby Curran (Executive Editor)…
YouTube personality Onision (real name Gregory Avaroe) is no stranger to controversy. He’s been admonished for illegally damaging wetlands near his home in Washington state, openly mocking an anorexic YouTuber, and filming his ex-girlfriend in a seizure state instead of taking her to the hospital. Most recently, though, he and his husband Kai (previously known as Lainey) have been accused of emotional and sexual abuse, and of grooming children––specifically young girls––from a young age.
At this point, we are all too familiar with the meme of the stereotypical New York City college student with a trusty vape in their hand. The sight has become so common that we almost don’t notice vapes anymore
ruth be told, I’m not a big fan of rom-coms. The only ones I do enjoy watching are for their nostalgic value, i.e. 13 Going on 30 or A Cinderella Story. I was in high school when I first saw Marc Webb’s 2009 rom-com 500 Days of Summer. Being the oh-so-cynical edgelord teenager that I was, I immediately dismissed it as a stupid romance that I’d hate and proceeded to make fun of every trope I saw in it until the two friends I was watching it with told me to please shut up.

Despite its rather barbaric origins, most people would agree that Thanksgiving is about family, celebration, and togetherness. However, no matter how kind we may be, there’s always company that we’d rather avoid than extend a hand to. This year, families were forced to deal with a particularly unwelcome guest at their Thanksgiving tables––an outbreak of the newest strand of E. coli.
By January 2019, per Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2016-17 State Budget legislation, “big employers”–– companies that have 11 or more employees–– will be obligated to pay their workers at least $15 an hour. This is a $2 raise from the previous $13 established in early 2018, and will be one of many steps Cuomo has taken to ensure that all workers in New York are paid a living wage. Fordham University, then, as a so-designated “big employer”, would have to raise its student workers’ wages accordingly. However, according to an email from SAGES (Students for Sex and Gender Equity and Safety) a few weeks ago, both Fordham’s Student Employment Office and its Human Resources Management had other plans.
