If you can’t afford proprietary software like Adobe Photoshop or Microsoft Word, and you don’t feel safe pirating, there’s always something called freeware and opensource.

College travels: Kettering

On the road again. Once again I’ve traveled to a four year university to inspect the campus. This time, it’s Kettering. My first thought, “Wow that is a lot of concrete.” Kettering’s campus, relative to others I’ve visited, reflects the school of thought in an engineering college, making everything as efficient as possible. All of…

Meat madness

I never thought that being a vegetarian and starting a new waitressing job could be so demoralizing. “So, is the Black and Bleu burger any good?” inquires the salivating, carnivorous customer.

The “Magic” is in the cards

In last week’s column, I talked about the card game sweeping the college center at St. Clair County Community College, which was Euchre. So, since Halloween is around, there is another card game being played that is appropriate for this time the year. The card game of “Magic.” According to www.wizards.com, “In the Magic game,…

Post apocalyptic fun

You have probably heard of “Dungeons and Dragons” before today, but do you know it’s not all swords and sorcery in the D&D world? There are many worlds and realms you can set the story in, and I recently picked up Gamma World, the science fiction version of D&D with some cool game play tweaks.…

Trick or treat! Schedule II amphetamines!

Beware little witches, superheroes, and vampires! Beware, not of the candy that could rot your smiles, but of appearing too hyper. I can already hear the maniacal laughs resonating from the dark shadows; laughing of pharmaceutical companies spying on potential ADHD patients who skip merrily from door to door, amassing copious amount of hyperactive treats.…
