Recently, the state of Ohio decided to make some budget cuts. They cut out all the usual stuff — overpaid politicians, unused funding. Normal, right? Well, not exactly.

More shades to come

Ria Parikh | Staff Writer A couple years ago, I was at the MAC store, and I asked the employee for a bronzer. She took a look at my face, paused, and said, “I’m not sure if we have any that’ll work for you. Sorry.” On that particular day, she happened to be right. I walked around the store, tested […]

Staff Editorial: Film does feminism wrong

Feminism is hard. It’s had a bit of a rough time with branding. But most of all, it’s just super complicated. Everyone has their own idea of what’s right, what’s “true” feminism.

Opinion: Girls, support girls

Anusha Vadlamani | Staff Writer I’ve spent a lot of time at Mason High School. Enough time to memorize when each class starts and when each one ends.

Opinion: Change is Coming

Anusha Vadlamani | Staff Writer I’m really excited to be a senior. Not just because I get to blame everything I don’t finish on senioritis (which is pretty much what I do now anyway), but because things are starting to change at Mason, all in time for when I’m about to walk across the stage, diploma in hand. Next year, […]

Opinion: Science humanizes us

Henri Robbins | Staff Writer Opportunity is a word that means a lot: It’s what pushes human ingenuity, it’s what makes us take risks, it’s why we have such a desire to create, but also, it’s a little robot on Mars.

Opinion: We Deserve Five Stars

Henri Robbins | Staff Writer The presidency is pretty funny right now. And actually do I mean laugh-out-loud funny. Ha-ha funny. Now I’m not referencing the wall or anything. It’s not about the subsequent government shutdown. This won’t bash the now all-too-normal Twitter rants of the most powerful man in the United States. This is about the food. For those […]
