We briefly talked about Bieber’s previous incident with a hooker in Brazil and how in the age of the internet (you know you’re speaking to adults who didn’t grow up with the internet when they say, ‘now in the age/times of the internet’), people have to be careful, because everything goes v...

Bieber and fame

Paula Kaledzi, Staff Writer

April 27, 2014

Trying to stay current with the times and to keep such a ‘beautiful’ story alive, I asked the comedians for their take on the Justin Bieber D.U.I incident in late January. Comics have a great way of getting you to laugh, but leaving you with a underscoring message. SNL’s Weekend Update, The Col...

Struggling and Boys

Paula Kaledzi, Staff Writer

March 31, 2014

Continuing our discussion of college, I veered the two into the tougher moments outside of school. PK: What do you say to students who are going to get this position, where they’re going to have to get odd jobs, they’re going to struggle to find their way? Do you say pick up and move on? OB: “I s...

College and your future

March 9, 2014

Some of the questions I ask interviewees, who are not apart of the UND community, deal with their college experience. I’m one who tries to tie things in and make everything as a whole completely relevant. The people you find in college tend to still be in college and have yet to be out in the ‘r...

PK: Is this where you expected yourself to get? OB: “It’s farther than I expected, I just wanted health insurance, so everything's a plus at this point for me. I set my bar for myself so low, I mean, just having people make eye contact with me is all I really need.” Self-deprecating humor fo...

Sullivan and Son, part 1

February 26, 2014

I like to think that our lives aren’t all that dictated and planned, but spontaneous and chaotic, in the most beautiful of ways. This part of the interview provides me with an example. Ahmed and Owen share how they both got the chance of a lifetime and how a friendship made that chance possible. PK:...

Humble Beginnings: The Interview

February 12, 2014

Sitting down to interview Ahmed and Owen was a lot more lax than I was used to. Most of my interviews start out formal and ease up by the end. These two best friends had already eased up, Ahmed eating a dinner of a sandwich and apple, and Owen, with his feet reclining, focused on his phone. Trying t...

‘Frozen’ continues success months after release

Paula Kaledzi, Staff Writer

January 31, 2014

While a film about snow and ice may not seem appealing given the current North Dakota weather, Disney’s “Frozen” left people of all ages feeling rather excited about the lingering winter. I finally caved after hearing ravings about “Frozen” and went with two friends. I enjoyed it so much,...
