The Daily Tar Heel

U.S. in Vancouver
Thumbs up

The U.S. won 37 medals — the most all time at the Winter Games. Typical America. But how about that closing ceremony? Nothing says successful Winter Games like Michael Buble and a beaver … Typical Canada.

Apple
Thumbs down

A recent audit revealed that some factories of Apple products used child labor. Want to see if your iPhone was made with cheap child labor in Malaysia or China? Yeah, there’s an app for that. 

ConnectCarolina
Thumbs up

The debut is close for the online system to replace Student Central. Just as we were getting used to antiquated technology that we assumed was meant to show off that we’re the oldest public university.

UNC tennis
Thumbs up

UNC is No. 1! No, that’s not a misprint. We’re talking about women’s tennis, not men’s basketball. The team assumed the top slot in the polls for the first time ever. Maybe Ol’ Roy could learn a few things from the tennis team. 

Canada
Thumbs down

Team Canada won hockey gold 3-2 over the United States on the last day of the games. Look, Canada, we cared aboot hockey for a day, and you won. Now we can go back to being better at everything else. Sounds good, eh?

Global warming
Thumbs down

Experts warn that South American coffee production is — and will continue to be — severely affected by global warming. We don’t see the problem. Iced coffee is lame. We’ll take hot coffee any day of the week.
