April 30, 2016 at 5:27 pm 0 comments

From YOLO to “Hotline Bling,” the epitome of meme culture has centered on rapper, actor, singer, songwriter, producer and Global Basketball Ambassador of the Toronto Raptors, Drake and has made him a household name. Drake has been everywhere from studio to “Saturday Night Live” and his highly anticipated fourth studio album, “Views from the 6,” is slated to be released later this month. Aubrey Drake Graham, was born on Oct. 24, 1986 in Toronto, Ontario. Drake got his first break on the teenage drama “Degrassi: The Next Generation” as Jimmy Brooks from 2001-2005. After Drake left “Degrassi,” he released his first mixtape, “Room for Improvement” in 2006 and in 2007 he released “Comeback Season.” Drake’s music caught fellow rapper Lil Wayne’s attention. In 2009, Drake released his third mixtape-soon-to-be-EP “So Far Gone,” which contained Drake’s breakout single “Best I Ever Had,” and he was later signed to Young Money Entertainment.Read More

After weeks of Parkhurst food, sometimes it’s necessary to get off campus for a bite to eat. A lot of the restaurants around the area are chains that students are used to seeing/eating at back home. (i.e. Taco Bell, Olive Garden, etc.) “My favorite local restaurant is Eat N’ Park. It’s exclusive to the areas surrounding Pittsburgh, and I love it because it offers everything that I could ever want,” said sophomore communication major Hanna Crovak. “It is open 24 hours, so when my friends and I are up all night studying, we can get a really late dinner or a snack at any time during the night.” Another well-known restaurant to SVC students and locals is Sharky’s Café, located off Route 30. It is especially a favorite of Junior Communication Major, Erika Hudock. “I would have to say my favorite local restaurant is Sharky’s. Every time you go thereRead More

Review: Gilbert and Sullivan Players’ “HMS Pinafore”

April 30, 2016 at 5:17 pm 0 comments

The Gilbert and Sullivan players performed the musical “HMS Pinafore” on April 1, 2 and 3. The musical, directed by Robert Howard, revolves around Ms. Josephine Corcoran and who she will marry. Howard opened the show with the singing of “God Save the Queen,” a tradition performed before every Gilbert and Sullivan show. The chorus of male sailors had multiple pitch problems. During group songs some sailors sounded sharper than the majority of the chorus, thus creating a fairly unpleasant sound. Lead female Taylor Hanson, however, had a voice that was reminiscent of those from the Romantic Era in Paris opera houses. Hanson’s voice had a strong vibrato and gracefully lifted to high notes. Robert Mangan who played the character of Captain Corcoran also had a strong voice that carried great power. Leah Poponick was quite flirtatious as the character of Little Buttercup. She sang multiple solos that exuded confidenceRead More

Seniors Rachel DeNino, Ganj Anvarzod and Emma Hamling worked together to showcase their creativity in a campus art exhibit that opened on March 17. While the exhibit showed off each of these individual’s personal styles and expressions, Hamling said that their individual works were scattered throughout the exhibit and that nobody had a section all to themselves. “We wanted [the exhibit] to be about the community of art as opposed to one’s individual accomplishments,” said Hamling. Hamling, whose abstract pieces often focus on the expression of emotion as opposed to the presentation of tangible topics, stated that creating a cohesive display was not too challenging despite the fact that the three artists used “extremely different” styles. “Piecing everything together wasn’t as difficult as we thought it would be,” said Hamling. DeNino, whose work mainly consists of photography and watercolor paintings, said that it was satisfying “to see it all comeRead More

Corn Chip Commercial Controversy

Over the past few decades the Super Bowl has become one of the most popular and widely viewed television events in history. Generations of family and friends gather to watch this sporting event, even if their favorite team is not participating. However, in the world of modern advertising the game is not the most important aspect of the game to many people. Instead of watching the game, more people are viewing the Super Bowl to be entertained by commercials. A survey released in 2015 by the National Retail Federation sampled over 6,000 men and women aged 18-70 years old. On average, for 25.1 percent of viewers, the most important part of the game is the commercials. Additionally, 77.1 percent of all Super Bowl viewers find these commercials to be entertaining. The pressure is certainly on advertising agencies to produce a commercial that is informative and hilarious, while remaining inoffensive. SinceRead More

The Super Bowl, the biggest unofficial holiday in the U.S., is viewed by nearly 110 million people each season. Family and friends gather around the TV to enjoy snacks and drinks while watching the big game. With eyeballs glued to television sets across the country, the Super Bowl is the perfect opportunity to make a statement, and Beyoncé, with the company of Bruno Mars and Coldplay, did just that. There were points of interest regarding this year’s game between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers. First and foremost, the championship celebrated its golden anniversary this year, so nostalgia was in the air. Super Bowl 50 was also held at the new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. Other concerns included this possibly being Peyton Manning’s last Super Bowl, whether or not Cam Newton could lead the Panthers to their first Super Bowl win in franchise history and Coldplay performing inRead More

In Oct. 2015, The Center for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that an Escherichia coli (E. coli) outbreak was linked to several chains of Chipotle Mexican Grills in Washington state and Oregon. Since the initial report was released, nine more states have reported cases, most recently in Pennsylvania. There have been a total of 53 cases reported, 20 hospitalizations and no deaths since the outbreak began. The ever-popular Chipotle Mexican Grill offers a variety of burritos, salads and tacos that are prepared to customers’ liking. Even with the customization, the prices are fairly low. The average customer can order a burrito and a medium drink all for fewer than 10 dollars. And, even with the E. coli outbreak, people all over the country are still making Chipotle their number one spot for a fast-casual dining experience, especially college students. “Free” is the best phrase a college student can ever hear,Read More

It was a brisk Friday morning in mid-January as Londoners gathered for their daily commute at London’s King’s Cross train station, the home to a magical place for “Harry Potter” fans. Here, letters, bouquets of flowers and patterned scarves were laid out on Platform 9 ¾, a place where one, if accepted, would begin their journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. These items were placed in memory of famous English actor and director Alan Rickman who, on Jan. 14, 2016, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer. “When I first found out, I was in class and didn’t believe it,” said junior Christina Morgal. “I was really sad to see this amazing actor who brought to life a uniquely complex character, die so young.” Rickman is most famously known as the man who portrayed the character Professor Severus Snape in the “Harry Potter” movie franchise, derived from author J.K.Read More

On Friday, Jan. 29, “Harry Potter” actress Evanna Lynch announced the names of four previously unmentioned wizarding schools. J.K. Rowling posted descriptions of the new schools on her website, Pottermore. The schools include Mahoutokoro in Japan, Uagadou in Africa, Castelobruxo in Brazil and Ilvermorny in North America. Rowling also stated that there are 11 wizarding schools in total. While the new information demonstrated the great diversity of the wizarding community, by continuing to add detail to the “Harry Potter” world, Rowling may be making it less and less magical In addition to the upcoming “Harry Potter” prequel “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” movie and “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” play, Rowling has recently revealed a great deal of new information about the wizarding world through tweets and the Pottermore website. Rowling has said whom many of the characters marry, added additional back stories for Harry’s guardians, clarifiedRead More
