Carrboro's Bazaar lends a home to the arts

It’s hard to make a living as an artist. But Meghan and Duncan Morgan are making it a little bit easier for local Carrboro artists and vendors by starting The Bazaar, a craft market that meets six times a year for 50 to 70 artists to display their work.

We asked students what they thought about a (fake) Facebook dating feature

Recently, Facebook has decided to intervene in painful break ups by introducing its new feature called “WATCH THEM BURN.” With this satirical, not real feature published by the Huffington Post, Facebook promised to create fake news stories, statuses and pictures of an ex's “downgrade."  The posts focus on making an ex look especially bad, and the user look good. It’s the ultimate way of showing who is the loser in the break up. In the spirit of good humor, staff writer Maggie Mouat asked UNC students what they thought about the "new feature."
