Column: Dear humanities majors...

Not everyone can solve for X, familiarize themselves with the anatomy of the human body or engineer software. But not everyone can analyze Shakespeare, do archival research or move a crowd with just their words either. You have been bestowed with skills that make you unique and have been placed exactly where you are meant to be.

DTH Photo Illustration. If you are the type of person that has a problem with everyone, then maybe you are the problem.

Column: Maybe you are the problem.

"Once you take a moment to recognize that you very well could be the problem, it becomes significantly easier to build back bridges that you once burned, and form healthier relationships with people around you."

DTH Photo Illustration. Ticketmaster uses "dynamic" ticketing to change prices to match demand for tickets.

Column: Dynamic ticketing is a barrier to enjoying live music

"Ticketmaster paints their strategy of dynamic pricing and platinum ticketing as a practice that supports both fans and artists alike and protects them from villainous third-party sellers. But in actuality, it prioritizes revenue above all else — revenue that goes directly into the pockets of artists and Ticketmaster executives."

The meditation room in the Student Union, which is a great place to escape the chaos of life, is pictured on Monday, Oct. 10, 2022.

Column: Vipassana meditation changed my life

Column: The Chinese character 'biang' and what it means to me

"From my many years at the Chinese school, I have developed an intimate relationship with the many complexities and simple pleasures of my culture — from language and conversation to traditional dances and costumes. I've uncovered the various parts of humanity through the lessons of discipline, global understanding, storytelling and communication. To me, biang is representative of the diverse aspects of humanity, a story told through numerous building blocks of history. "

Column: "Her Loss" is Actually His Loss

"As an avid Drake fan, I was disappointed with “Her Loss.” Sonically, it is well produced, but a slower listen to some lyrics highlights a more interesting story of a rich but perhaps lonely man still in search of himself. One nearly forgets that it’s a collaborative project with 21 Savage’s contributions outdone by Drake’s overpowering narcissism."

Column: Dating needs an overhaul

"Dating apps have effectively killed the dating scene for LGBTQ+ and straight individuals. From hookup culture to perpetuating racial stereotypes, these apps have long stifled emotional connections among users."

Column: Why do we sensationalize celebrity deaths?

"While all gun violence is senseless, Takeoff’s talent and promising music career make his death harder to cope with. His contributions to the world mean that this loss impacts not only his family but his fans. It’s frustrating that the final moments of his life were recorded and circulated online."
