Netflix’s Tiger King. When I first heard about it, I genuinely found the premise so stupid until I watched the first episode, and from there it was history. I got caught up in watching the rest of the episodes and trying to figure the possible reason why this show is such a success. Why during this time of unc...

Are we ready to love someone if we don’t love ourselves? Most of the time it’s probably not something that comes to mind.

In the United States, sports reign as king as we often gather in modern chapels of athleticism to praise and scorn. Sports are woven into our lives as an ever present figure and for some it is as if strands of our DNA are coated in our teams signature colors. But even with its domination of the ente...

Social media; it can be wonderful, invigorating and seemingly so informative in regard to current events and what is happening around the world.

When it comes to the flu, common cold, stomach bug, etc, we need to do what makes us feel better and (hopefully) receive the vaccines or antibiotics necessary. We go on with our lives, doing our best to not feel like crap.    However, with the most recent health scare, the coronavirus, see...

As society continues to become more informed and technology continues to improve rapidly, I think that taking a step back and recognizing that even though technology provides humans with efficient short cuts and accessible information, it also plays a toll on how humans live and interact with each other.

The University of North Dakota hockey team made the trip to Omaha this weekend for their last regular season series of the season, looking to put a cap on what has been a stellar season.

Boss’ Pizza & Chicken hit the Grand Forks community a couple of months ago, and I decided it was time to review their food.    They have a great location, being only about a mile away from campus, it is convenient for students and it is easy to get to. Boss’ is just off of 42nd str...
