How to stay civil through exams, and not hate everyone by beach week

Academic stress doesn't bring out the best in any of us. Some retreat to the library for 24+ hours, subsisting off 8:15 bagels and red eyes (double shot, iced, with skim). Some plan ahead, only to spend the morning leading up to the exam or deadline freaking out that they didn't study hard enough, or forgot an essential detail. Some people get passive-aggressive; some just get mean.

Changing the world, one note at a time

Live Aid, Farm Aid, Live 8, NetAid and Live Earth. Since George Harrison and Ravi Shankar popularized the concept with the Concert for Bangladesh in 1971, benefit concerts have become regularly occurring, star-studded events with a formulaic mix of aging rock stars grasping for relevance and world leaders grasping for exposure. Al Gore or Pink Floyd might show up and entertain us, but vague goals and undefined aid destinations make these affairs feel more like The Tonight Show with donations than charitable events. We can find examples of musicians actually helping people at the University of Richmond, and not just for free airtime.

'Separate, but equal' in sex and gender?

"The Feminine Mystique," the novel that launched a generation of feminists, was published 50 years ago last week. In those five decades, the progress of women's rights has lurched and receded, but equality of the sexes for men, women and transgenders is still certainly absent in much of this country, including at the University of Richmond. With much fanfare, the sorority cottages opened last semester.
