Remakes seem to be the thing right now. A few seasons ago Warner Bros. picked up a remake series of Beverly Hills 90210 entitled 90210.

No word yet when the series will air, but you can read more about the … [Read the rest]

As if the sex scandal and estrangement from his soon-to-be-ex- wife weren’t enough; Tiger Woods is facing problems once again.  This time the pain is physical.  He is believed to be suffering from a bulging disk in his neck, although a CAT scan performed in the early part of the week should be able to confirm it.  The injury, common among golfers, forced him to withdraw from The Players Tournament last week.  With the proper treatment he should be able to return to golf within a few months.  More details … [Read the rest]

For the last nearly 10 years, American Idol has been one of, if not the, top rated reality show.  From it stars like Carrie Underwood, Daughtry, Clay Aiken, Mandisa, and many others have been born.  However, as much as we hate him, Simon Cowell’s announcement that this will be the last season has had serious effects on the ratings.  While “Idol” is still in the top 3, ratings are down nearly 20% from last year.  Are we suffering from “Idol” burnout or are we missing Simon already?

The Southwestern Company products have been changing slowly over time for a while now. That should come as no surprise when you look around at the major changes the world has gone through in the last hundred years alone, not to mention before that. It hasn't just been the books that they carry that have come in and out of print since then. They have also acquired new books that upon inspection it was clear that they needed to completely revise before they could send them out with the student … [Read the rest]

Many of us remember the Vietnam War and the protesting that occurred on nearly every campus across the country; however, not all have the same memories as students at Kent State University.  In the weekend following President Nixon’s announcement that we would be invading Cambodia, anti-war protestors took their displeasure to a new level, including burning down an ROTC building.  In response to the violence Ohio Gov. James Rhodes called out the National Guard to assist with controlling the mob.  In the past only tear gas had been used to … [Read the rest]
