Fashion retailer, Urban Outfitters is infamous for putting out clothing that could be considered offensive to some. Well they've done it again! Last Thursday, a simple mustard yellow t-shirt appeared on the Urban Outfitters website.

A shirt like this would alway spark up some controversy, but this $100 shirt was coincidentaly featured on urbanoutfitters.com during the same week as Yam HaShoah,... Continue reading

Last Sunday, America watched French director Michel Hazanavicius of The Artist take home the Oscar for Best Picture. Rightfully so, this silent film deserved all of the recognition it received, but there is a question that lies next to this film winning this prestigious award. Did The Artist win Best Picture simply because its the first of its kind in ages? Without any disrespect to The Artist, this question should be asked. The idea of a silent film seems rather heartwarming, as it brings you back to a classical era, which may be why it is loved by so many... Continue reading

Many groups of Atheists try to advertise their belief (or non-beleif) through multiple mediums, one of them being billboards. The Atheist community choses to reach out to people by using billboards displaying slogans targeted at the Christian belief in God, of whether God is real or not. However these billboards bring about many displeased Christians, as they feel that these billboards mock the Christian religion and the belief in God. I can't say... Continue reading

Many say that it is a "dog eat dog" world out there, but when it comes to the important stuff, like selecting a presidential candidate, the lucky winner should be a loyal companion. Unfortunatly, kind-hearted and selfless politicians are often hard to find, but, the media neglets to fill us in on the scandals when the time is right. Now I'm not a girl who's hungry for politics, but I am your every day American who is in fact exposed to politics every day. Now, from my perspective, the media does a great job addressing the issues to me and... Continue reading
