When I first got wind of the buzz being generated for the screen adaptation of adventurist Aron Ralston’s staggering story of perseverance, I was conflicted as to whether or not I would see it.
Well, perhaps it would be more accurate to say I wondered if I could see it.
Got milk? No, thanks. What once was delicious and nutritious is now just getting weird. I’ve never had a craving for human breast milk, no matter how high the nutrient content, and that is just where our super markets are heading.
Thanks to China Agricultural University, 300 dairy cows have been successfully genetically modified with human genes so that the milk duplicates the exact properties of your mother’s.
Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky, is the story of a young boy named Charlie who is starting high school. The book is told in letters written to an anonymous pen-pal. The reader doesn’t know who he’s writing to, so it’s easy for the reader to feel like they are the one Charlie is confiding in, which is the best part of the book.

Students serving students — that is what The University Star is all about. And if the tons of awards the Star just won are any indication, the students are being served very well.
The University Star brought home 33 awards — 29 off-site and four on-site at the 2011 Texas Intercollegiate Press Association conference/competition.
I have received complaints about election commissioner Sarah Kupcho’s quote being taken out of context as it appears in Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s Main Point. As The University Star champions transparency, I have decided to be completely transparent and post the entire audio clip of Kupcho speaking where the quote “the commission does not need to answer to the press,” appears.
Fish sticks: vanilla wafers smeared with peanut butter and rolled in crushed rice crispies served with seedless, strawberry jam.
When I first read The Hunger Games, I had no idea what it was about. People had only told me it was a really good book. However, most of the people relaying this information said Twilight was their favorite book of all time (not bashing Twilight, but as far as literary work goes, it's no masterpiece). After all the “ooo’s” and “ahh's” died down, I finally sat down and read the book everyone keep telling me about. I was floored. Suzanne Collins is a beast.
