YouTubers Onision and Kai Accused of Abuse and Grooming of Girls

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.

500 Days of Summer: Best Rom-Com of All Time? Gabby says yes

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. Little did I know that as I was mocking director Mark Webb for using these tropes, they were being deconstructed before my very eyes.

E. Gads: E. Coli outbreak strikes in U.S. and Canada

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.

The Fight for Fordham’s 15

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.

How The Office Lost its Funny Bone

As someone who wanted to start their summer off productively, I decided to binge-watch all nine seasons of The Office (slightly less if you consider the fact that seasons 1 and 4 were less than 20 episodes long). For those of you somehow not familiar with the show (in which case, stop reading and start watching),was a show on NBC that aired from 2005 to 2013, spanning 201 episodes in all. It stars such comedians as Steve Carrell, Ed Helms, Rainn Wilson, and Jenna Fischer and takes on the gutsy task of creating comedy out of the mundane and soulless office environment that most middle-class Americans are familiar with.
