PepsiCo’s CEO admitted to it. Professionals on LinkedIn are posting on their personal accounts about it. We have unearthed yet another reason to be collectively and irately loud about — women cannot have it all. We are go-getting, career-having, Victoria’s Secret wearing, nurturing, loving beings...

Imagine a pot made of brown clay, not extraordinary in appearance, certainly not anything you would pick out of a line up. It has no designated purpose. You could fill it with a bouquet of your favorite flowers and some water, and it would become a vase. You could pour hot coffee into it, forever staining...

Imagine my surprise when I walked out of Gillham Hall to a downpour that was operating on a monsoon level. I probably wouldn’t have been so caught off guard if I had bothered to check the weather, but that’s beside the point. There I was with no umbrella, and a car that, at that moment seemed...

“Hello. My name is D... D... D...” I would generally let out a sigh or a grunt at this point. “D... D... sorry. I am D... D... Dustin!” This is a greeting that many of the people I have met at the University of Toledo receive. Am I nervous? No. Am I afraid? No. I have a stutter. I have...

Have you ever been talking to someone so intently that you didn’t listen to a word they said? You knew they were probably pouring out their soul to you, in what was no doubt, an unexpected bout in wisdom. Through the course of your conversation you were most likely rapt with attention, clinging...

I have been obsessed with my personal safety after watching too much CSI: Las Vegas when I was younger. One year for Halloween I dressed up as some kind of safety officer/post-apocalyptic garbage woman. I was decked out from head to toe with my dad’s hard helmet, safety goggles, rubber gloves, orange...

This year, my semester didn’t start with excitement, adventure or learning like last semester. I started with a whole bunch of nagging problems and a long list of rambling thoughts in my head. But I will spare you with that. We have the entire year to talk about it. I am an international graduate...

A new year at school means new temptations for people trying to eat healthy. Everyone is getting accustomed to a new routine and that can mean changing your eating habits.

Everyone is going to tell you about the big events: formal speeches, banquets with awards and classes. Always work your hardest, don’t wait till the last minute to write your papers, and take every opportunity available. That’s what school is all about. I want to tell you what it means to be a...

Summertime is slowly drifting away with a little less than a week away until classes start. This will be the start of my fourth, and hopefully, final year. Two years ago I found myself as a second-year commuter student wanting more out of my time at college. I knew I liked the idea of writing and...

Earlier this month, Medicare, for the first time in its nearly 50-year existence, released comprehensive data on the compensation paid out to health care providers in 2012. The data has shown that nearly 2 percent of providers accounted for about a quarter of Medicare’s non-commercial payments —...
