I am by no means the most liberal person that I know. However, despite going to a very politically conservative high school and growing up in a pretty conservative community, I was raised in a liberal family with liberal siblings. I am proud to say that I am a registered Democrat.
On April 3, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported that it is likely that the National Basketball Association (NBA) will decide to cancel the 2019-2020 season outright. He suggested that the likeliest option at this point is that the current season will be abandoned entirely and the league will simply wait until the start of next season to play professional basketball again.
Hopkins men’s basketball lost an absolute heartbreaker on Friday, falling to Penn State Harrisburg in double overtime by a score of 104-96.
The Hopkins men’s track team continued its historic run this past weekend by clinching its eighth straight Centennial Conference indoor championship. The Jays traveled to Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa. and took no prisoners on their way to the top of the podium.
To say that Pete Davidson is one of the more divisive figures in the modern world of comedy is not a very controversial opinion.
Amazon Prime released its highly-advertised new series, Hunters, this past Friday. The show follows a nefarious plot going on amongst 1977 Nazis, who plan to take over the United States and re-found the Nazi party (or something along those lines). The show also features an FBI agent played by Jerrika Hinton, who is herself discovering and following that very nation-wide Nazi conspiracy.
Around two months ago, the magazine Christianity Today made national headlines by writing an editorial arguing in favor of removing President Donald Trump from office. This article was significant for many reasons, but perhaps the reason that it was so relevant was because of how thoroughly unexpected it seemed. The editorial wasn’t just interesting — it was surprising.
While some students spent Valentine’s Day this past week with their significant other, others spent it alone or with friends. This year, the Milton S. Eisenhower Library (MSE) provided a fourth option: spending V-Day with a book. Not just any book, though: a book you were set up with blindly by someone else who you’ve probably never met.
The Hopkins men’s lacrosse team powered their way to a win on the opening day of the season this past Saturday. The Jays rode a dominant 9-1 run to finish the game with a 15-7 victory over their local rivals from Towson University.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (B99) has returned. For those who don’t know, B99 is arguably one of the funniest shows on television. I would watch it over The Office or anything else, really, and I’ve felt that way since I first sat down to watch the pilot episode at home with my mom way back in 2013.
This year’s Super Bowl was destined to be a coronation of the old and the new — of well-known faces in the National Football League (NFL) and the faces of the next generation destined to define football for the next decade or more.
For the past four years or so, I’ve been a big fan of NBC’s The Good Place.
I am sure you do not need me to recap the sign-stealing scandal that has been rocking Major League Baseball for the past half year.
There were a few things about my own personal experience watching 1917 — a movie nominated for 10 Academy Awards this year — that were particularly frustrating. The group of 12-year-old boys in the back of the theater talking and laughing at pretty much full volume throughout the movie was one. The fact that my viewing experience was also interrupted midway by an entirely unnecessary and poorly placed intermission was another.
Over Thanksgiving break, I had the privilege of visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Unfortunately, their collection of European painting from the years 1200-1800 are mostly not on display due to ongoing renovations. There was, however, a new and different exhibit I had the opportunity to see, and it was absolutely fascinating.
While there have been many fall sports teams that have had stellar seasons, the Hopkins volleyball team has been the shining star of the Hopkins athletic department this year. The Blue Jays went through a rigorous 27 match regular season and emerged undefeated before continuing their winning streak in the Centennial Conference Tournament and the first three rounds of the NCAA Tournament.
In the promo video for Seth Meyers’ first stand-up special on Netflix (or anywhere, as far as I can tell), he asks a group of children if they’d like to play with a new action figure, “Stand-Up Seth.”
Hopkins men’s soccer took home the Centennial Conference trophy on Saturday in a dramatic come-from-behind victory over the Franklin and Marshall (F&M) Diplomats at Tylus Field in Lancaster, Pa.
The Writing Seminars Department invited the acclaimed poet Richard Kenney to share his philosophy on writing poetry and read some poems from Terminator, his new and fifth published book of poetry and his first since 2008.
