Picture this: a middle-aged, conservative coal miner from central Kentucky. You would be right to predict with near certainty that he would vote reliably Republican. And yet, in the same state represented by such “popular” politicians as Mitch McConnell, the incumbent Democratic governor Andy Beshear was just reelected by a comfortable margin. He managed to do well across the state, including many rural counties that are usually ruby red. Mind you, this was the same state that voted for Donald Trump by an astounding 26% margin. So considering Beshear’s impressive victory, Democrats should be teed-up for a blue wave in 2024. Right?
After hearing whispers and murmurs of a niche, award-winning ramen place nearby (no, not Kajikan), my friends and I made our way to Toki Underground to investigate the rumors. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with friendly smiles, along with an artsy and modern atmosphere: a ceiling covered with broken skateboard pieces, a glass shelf encompassing model cars, a wall enriched with seemingly random photos, low-hanging lights streaming across the polished wooden surface bar and baby Yoda figurines (bonus points!) nestled between cabinets. The soft lighting, coupled with vibrant embellishments, unexpectedly unveiled a cozy feeling throughout the restaurant. Although the interior of the restaurant is filled with arbitrary decorations, they seamlessly harmonize to create a distinct homey and artsy aura.
Supporting Hospitals Abroad with Resources and Equipment (SHARE) is an organization that strives to enhance sustainability in the medical industry. SHARE not only redistributes unopened and unused surgical supplies from the Johns Hopkins Hospital to countries in need but also helps its members better understand those supplies and the medical scene through various shadowing programs.

After a long and eventful off-season, the NBA season is finally back upon us! All 30 teams are starting with a blank record and we, as fans, have (mostly) grand delusions that “this will finally be our year!” That being said, I wanted to delve into one key question that every team will have to answer for them to reach the promised land. Two week ago, I wrote this article for the Western Conference. This time, we’re looking at the Eastern Conference.
On Tuesday, Nov. 7, the Johns Hopkins Health Policy Forum invited Chairman, CEO and President of Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) Tom Polen to share his insights into the current state of global health care and BD’s role in it. Polen was joined by Dean of Carey Business School Alex Triantis.
What is a superhero? I think, for most of us, what instantly comes to mind is a caped crusader in brightly colored spandex. This costumed person uses their superpowers, which vary from flight to invisibility to X-ray vision, to fight bad guys. They do what’s right. They’re moral. They protect their city or their world from the stuff the average person can’t.
I am no coffee sommelier. I was never the type of person who drank coffee often and never really enjoyed the taste of coffee. In high school, I always thought, “Instead of drinking coffee, why not just sleep more?” But as with many other aspects of life, for better or worse, college has changed me into a growing caffeine addict. Now I think to myself, “Why go to bed when I can live off of espressos and energy drinks?”
When I was flying to Baltimore for the first time, back in August, I promised myself I wouldn’t let being an international student prevent me from joining social circles. I’ve indeed kept my promise by finding a way of fitting in, and I managed to embrace my Turkish identity while doing so.
I’m 15 years old, and I’m sitting in my eye doctor’s office, learning how to put contact lenses into my eyes for the very first time. I’m practicing, yet I’m failing. My kind, patient eye practitioner says, “give it a drink” every time I fail, in reference to me soaking the contact lens with contact solution in order to make the process easier for my dry eyes. I chuckle. With every failure, I’m met with this same piece of advice. I try once more to place the lens into my eye, and once again, I fail. “Don’t worry, these things take time,” he says.
Leave campus and your midterms behind for all kinds of fun activities around the city this weekend, from comedy shows to farmers' markets!
One of the main reasons why I wanted to go on this mountain biking trip was due to my nagging desire to leave campus and get away from the library and the never-ending cycle of homework. The trip was going to give me a change of pace, a change of scenery, and a chance to do something outside of the norm. This was not the first time I had wanted to go on one of the trips hosted by the Johns Hopkins Outdoors Club (JHOC), but this desire is shared by many other students, so this was my first opportunity before the winter and the final stretch of the semester. You can imagine my joy when I found out I was moved onto the roster and I was actually going to go mountain biking!
In 2010, Jimmy McMillan founded the Rent Is Too Damn High Party and ran for governor of New York. The party’s platform was simple: a single-issue attack on rent prices in the bustling city. While the party (unfortunately) never achieved electoral success, its focus is still relevant to this day.
Filthy Frank, Pink Guy, Joji — George Kusunoki Miller has had many names and has evolved throughout the years. Yet, his transformation through these different identities and phases has left him with a loyal and avid fanbase. His evolution from internet comedian to international superstar has made him a pop culture icon, now with over 22 million Spotify monthly listeners. His professional music career as Joji has since led to four albums and numerous tours, his most recent being the Pandemonium tour.
This November, we’re seeing more men around campus growing mustaches. While you might assume that the CVS Pharmacy on St. Paul Street has stopped stocking razors, it’s actually for Movember, an annual month-long push to raise awareness for men’s health issues — including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide — by sporting mustaches.
The Alexander Grass Humanities Institute (AGHI) hosted its first New Faculty Lecture on Thursday, Nov. 2 with Jenann Ismael, the William H. Miller III Professor of Philosophy at Hopkins. Previously a philosophy professor at Columbia University and an affiliate of Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute, Ismael gave a talk titled “Time and Visual Imagination: From Physics to Philosophy.”
There is something about the rush of adrenaline, the chasing of the rising anxiety, that entices many. Upon discovery, it can be a bit strange, but not knowing what the future holds or what may be hiding in the dark corner of an empty room is exciting. It was this allure for the feeling of adrenaline — the pounding of the heart and blood that flows to your fingertips — that drew me to The Nevermore Haunt. Additionally, I needed a release from the feeling of dread that washed over me from the chemistry test I’d had the previous day.

This year’s el Día de los Muertos celebration at Hopkins cut across venues and days over the course of Nov. 1 and 2. The events were organized by Multicultural Affairs and the Mexican American Student Association (MASA) and included a two-day long community ofrenda and an el Día de los Muertos Celebration on Nov. 2.
When my friend and I burst out laughing at an unintentionally funny jumpscare, I knew that the Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNAF) movie wasn’t going to succeed as a horror movie. Instead, it exists in the weird space where it doesn’t achieve real horror but rather uses subdued scare tactics to achieve a PG-13 rating (and ultimately, get a larger audience for the box office).
