The Iowa Caucuses: How it works, the results, and the controversies

The Iowa Caucuses, the results of which were confirmed Tuesday afternoon, marked one of the first major political battles for presidential candidates. But do voters from states which do not use the caucus system fully understand it?


Some interesting shows you should check out on Netflix

Getting through mountains of classwork can be extremely boring. My preferred method of staying focused is a good ol’ Netflix binge. With seemingly unlimited options, it can be hard to decide what show to devour next. If you’re tired of rewatching older series, there are some alternative options. There’s more to Netflix than just prisoners and plotting politicians.


Pick-up lines that fail and those that rock

Attention Lock Haven students: the season of love is upon us. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I’ve compiled a list of the best and worst pickup lines of all time. Hopefully these lines will score you a companion other than Ben & Jerry’s to share the 14th of this month with.


Zika: The gateway to reproductive freedom

The Zika virus is a short-term disease spread through mosquito bites. Common symptoms include fever, rash, joint pain and conjunctivitis, but with treatment, it can be resolved in a few days.
However, there is new evidence that suggests that women who are infected with the virus while pregnant can give birth to babies with birth defects, like microcephaly.

‘Grease Live’: We’ve got chills, they’re multiplying

‘Grease Live’: We’ve got chills, they’re multiplying

Competing alongside NBC with their live productions of “The Sound of Music” and “Peter Pan,” FOX threw it all the way back to the 50s with their own live production of “Grease” Sunday night.
I don’t think they could have picked a better cast to play the iconic roles. With Julianne Hough as Sandy, Aaron Tveit as Danny Zuko, Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo, Carly Rae Jepsen as Frenchie, Carlos PenaVega as Kenickie, Boys to Men as Teen Angel and Didi Conn as Vi the Waitress.


Nerding Out: Everyone has a story to tell

Nerding Out: Everyone has a story to tell

There are stories in everything around you. Stories in the old, rundown buildings you drive by: what happened in there when it was still usable? Who lived there? When? Stories in the furniture you use: Who made it? What stories were told around it? Who used it? Everything has a story.


What grinds my gears: the word “we”

What grinds my gears: the word “we”

It doesn’t drive me nuts when people use it to tie together themselves with another person, but it drives me absolutely bonkers when sports fans use the word “we” when referring to themselves and the team. The reason is that as a sports fan, you are not part of the team. You may think you are because you cheer very loudly from your couch, but let’s be clear, you aren’t making a difference on the field, court, or ice.

Wrestling goes 1-1 on last weekend of January

As the season continues to move forward, the competition gets harder. That was the case last weekend when the Lock Haven wrestling team (7-8 overall, 2-2 EWL) won a huge match against Clarion on the road and fell to Cleveland State at home in a heartbreaker.
