By Anna Wendt
October 16, 2014 - 1:00am

There are many different diets and cleansing options that are swirling around the Internet. One of the most popular ones is called the Master Cleanse, or the lemonade diet. This involves giving up food for x amount of days and drinking homemade lemonade that includes lemon juice, cayenne pepper and maple syrup. There are also other things that can be done in conjunction with consuming this drink that I didn’t partake in. This week my roommate, Katie, and I decided that we were going to give this cleanse a try. She had done it once before over the summer and had been successful. We decided that during the week would be best and that we would attempt for 4 days: Tuesday through Friday. READ MORE...

October 9, 2014 - 9:00pm

If you or a friend has ever been the victim of a sexual assault, you are fully aware that sometimes the aftermath of the event can be as traumatic as the attack itself. People start asking questions, trying to make sure you’re not confused about what happened, asking if you were drinking or flirting with your attacker; it’s like you’re being assaulted all over again. Why is it that with other crimes such as robbery and murder, no one ever says “Well she was wearing a short skirt” or “Well he didn’t say I could rob him but he didn’t say I could not rob him either so I figured it was okay”? Why is rape the only crime where society tries to blame the victim? READ MORE
