Last April, I wrote an article, "The dangers of populism," in which I decried the growing populist sentiment welling up in the form of the AIG bonus controversy. I wrote that our country was succumbing to an "out-of-control populist bonfire." How naive I was. Far from being full blown, the fire was still in the kindling stage. Now, almost a year later, we can lay claim to a fully robust bonfire.
The word "friend" is used so casually in our society. Let's face it, you tend to call just about everyone a friend, whether it's the girl who lives on your hall who has only spoken to you twice this entire year, or the guy who you've known since kindergarten who knows more about you than your own parents.
Life just got easier for those pursuing career opportunities in the Federal Government. Last month, the Office of Personnel Management released its long-awaited and improved job application Web site. OPM boasts that the new site is easier to navigate, more streamlined, and more personalized. For those not familiar with the government application process, USAjobs.gov is the one-stop source for all Federal jobs and employment information.

The Winter Olympics start tomorrow and the excitement-o-meter is stuck on low.
President Obama has announced a new $6 billion Federal program to fix the design flaws with the newly released Apple iPad. Reviews of the iPad have noted several major drawbacks to the tablet, such as the lack of an operating system that allows multitasking, the absence of Adobe Flash support in the web browser, no external USB ports or the fact that it's simply a trendy iTouch with a 10-inch screen.
It's that time of year — time to offer up some more green solutions for the University of Richmond's campus!
On Monday I spent approximately an hour and 15 minutes trudging through the snow, to and from class, the Pier, the library, the dining hall, the gym, North Court and X-lot. For me, this is a typical day. For you, I'm guessing it's not far off.
It must be aforementioned that I am a member of Greek Life. That being said, there is a problematic binary discrepancy pertaining to the distribution of wealth between sororities and fraternities on this campus.
I was sitting in the first floor of the library at a computer in the front room, staring at the computer screen. I could see, but nothing was in focus. I couldn't think. I couldn't feel. I couldn't breathe. My heart was racing. I was sweating. And the only thing running through my mind was, "Where should I run if I'm going to throw up?"
The great thing about this weekend's Super Bowl is that baseball season is right around the corner. Pitchers and catchers start to report for spring training on Feb. 17 and games start on March 2. In case you have not paid attention to the sport since Nov. 4 when the New York Yankees defeated the Philadelphia Phillies for their 27th World Series title, here are my winners and losers of the offseason.
Alex Lebenstein was a Holocaust survivor who had more than enough reasons to hate, but was instead an advocate for tolerance and forgiveness. He died Thursday, Jan. 28, at the age of 82.
The National Football League will add a new twist to an old tradition this Sunday with its decision to move the time and place of the Pro Bowl, its version of an All-Star Game.
They're the smallest, slowest and weakest players on most football teams. They're on the field for no more than a minute each game and they rarely take a hit, but this year's NFL playoffs have been a testament to the vital importance of place kickers.
With 11 seconds left during the FCS quarterfinal game last month, the Richmond Spiders were mere clock ticks away from reaching their third-straight national semifinal. But when those 11 seconds slowly disappeared, so did many of the people that helped put together the magical run of the last three seasons.
"Intelligence plus character, that is the goal of true education."
"This is the 7:23 train to Grand Central," announces the screeching robotwoman voice. "This station is Tarryytownnnn, the next station stop is Irrrviiinggtonnnn."
When the story first broke that former University of Richmond football coach Mike London would be leaving his alma mater for the University of Virginia, I couldn't help but feel disappointed that a man we proudly claimed as our own would jump ship so quickly. This disappointment, however, was not merely a feeling of betrayal or anger at another FBS/BCS school poaching talent from our proud university. Rather, there was a hint of fatalism surrounding the entire affair, a knowledge that as much as I love this university and as much as men like London have professed to love it as well, Richmond is still seen as a mere stepping stone for those with aspirations for greater fame and fortune.
Imagine this "icebreaker" game: Participants sit in a circle of chairs, and when a characteristic that you possess is shouted, you run to another chair. Whoever is the last one standing loses and must stand in the middle of the circle.
Last week we detailed four models of power dynamics in relationships: The Giver and the Taker, The Mongoose versus the Cobra, The Hand, and The Dominant and Submissive. In detailing the four models, we created paradigms that appear to leave no room for change. The Taker will seemingly always take. The Mongoose is assumed to always strike at its most vulnerable moment. The Hand presumably creates an intimate tyrant. The Dominant's name alone implies its continual dominance.
