Unpaid internship

August 25, 2003 Kristina Fiore 0

Sure, I love being a slave to other peoples’ desires. Just tell me what to do – anything you want, I’ll be right at your feet. I’m yours. My only purpose in this life is to serve you, master.

Some people expect this to be the common scenario of an unpaid internship. […]

Meet me in outer space

August 25, 2003 Kristina Fiore 0

Once in a lifetime? How about once in a thousand lifetimes.

That’s how often Mars comes within 35 million miles of Earth. And on Aug. 27, humans will be able to view the Red Planet as close as Neanderthals saw it 60,000 years before.

An opportunity to witness the phenomenon that will probably only be seen by 1,000 generations superceding ours should be taken advantage of. […]

Supporting the Troops

April 22, 2003 Kristina Fiore 0

Whether or not people are in support of the war, one wartime aspect is usually agreed upon: support our troops.

For most people, the troops are a far-off entity who are “protecting our homeland” and “fighting for freedom.”

This is not the case for two students at the College, Alison Litvack and Jen Nemmers. […]

Tie a yellow ribbon ’round the campus for me

April 22, 2003 Kristina Fiore 0

Yellow Ribbons are being tied all over lampposts outside the student center as well as on students’ jackets and residence hall room doors. Yet, there is more to the ribbon than meets the eye.

Yellow Ribbon Wearers

On the gray peacoat that she wears every day, Christine Brower, sophomore elementary education and psychology major, displays a yellow ribbon made from thin, ribbed material usually used for decorative gift-wrapping. […]

Daisies do it for me

April 15, 2003 Kristina Fiore 0

When I arived home from Sunday’s Signal meeting, a daisy that looked as if it had been plucked right out of one of the many cracks in the campus sidewalks was stuck onto my door handle.

It was plastered there with a little label saying “No matter how you pick ’em, a vote for Laura goes with any bunch. […]

Women use their voices to take back their power

April 8, 2003 Kristina Fiore 0

For the tenth year in a row, the Women’s Center marched for a woman’s power to use her voice.

Last Wednesday night on the steps of Green Hall, men and women gathered to show their support for “Take Back the Night.”

“Over the past 10 years, we have worked hard to break the silence surrounding sexual assault and I hope that we will continue to do so, until the violence stops and a night like tonight is no longer needed,” Emily Bent, senior women’s and gender studies major, said. […]

Fear in the U.S. – documentary blames gun-nuts, media

March 18, 2003 Kristina Fiore 0

After seeing “Bowling for Columbine,” I feel guilty. First, for wanting a job in mass media. Second, for ever having lived in fear.

Despite its title, this movie isn’t a dedication to the tragedies in Littleton. It isn’t a look into the psyche of the murderers, although creator Michael Moore provokes harsh criticisms of those who do such things. […]

“In Lot 8, faculty and staff parking becomes visitor parking on the weekend,” Kathleen Ragan, director of student financial assistance, said.

According to Ragan, students with decals for other lots are not allowed to park in these spaces. […]
