In most Asian households, the idea of living a risk-free life is much-touted. After all, who desires a life of hardship that taking risks can result in? No one. These discussions often center around material possessions like money or land. Get a job that pays well and then buy land or property. This is likely why the American Dream has such great appeal.

Researchers have studied the effects of substances like alcohol and tobacco on organs like the liver and the lung. Inspired by past findings, scientists wished to study the effects of Twitter use on a mildly important organ: the brain.
In recent weeks, our news feeds have been inundated with talk of a new Supreme Court justice. With the retirement of Justice Stephen Breyer, President Joe Biden nominated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as his replacement. Justice Jackson is the first Black woman justice in U.S. history. There have been many notable moments in her confirmation hearing so far. Justice Jackson’s husband was seen shedding tears in a heartwarming moment. Her daughter was caught beaming with pride, in what will likely be an era defining picture.
My mother left me each night
I AM BACK! I AM BACK!! There is no need to be afraid. Your beloved prescriptivist is back.
I was never big on crackers growing up. The only crackers I’d ever had in the United Arab Emirates were salty and dry. You could argue I didn’t consume them the right way, but that didn’t matter to me. However, there’s one set of crackers that has intrigued me since 2019: animal crackers.
They say an apple doesn’t fall far from the tree
I am a bonafide linguist. An expert in the field. The greatest today (sorry Chomsky). After all, I took one single linguistics course and barely scraped by with an A (in my defense, my mental health in the fall of 2020 was held together by goo). Linguistics majors have been shaking since. They can’t lace my boots. They can barely look me in the eye as I tower over them with my humongous brain — and often literally as well.
I grew up in the UAE, a country where politics aren’t much of a thing. Consequently, I didn’t have the chance to understand global political dynamics. It was enough for me to know the prime minister of my birth country and the leaders of the UAE. Any global leaders were an added bonus. However, since joining the Cardinal, it has been impossible to ignore American politics.
College is a time when people get a great handle on who they are and what they want. At this stage, people stumble across life-changing revelations. In that spirit, I figured I should write about something that helped me understand my patterns and needs, life-changing stuff.
British pop rock band Bastille released their fourth studio album Give Me the Future on Feb. 4. The new album, somewhat similar thematically to Doom Days, deals with the idea of escapism, the future and the question of what is real and what is fake. Executive produced by OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, the overall sound of the album could be described as futuristic synth-pop.
American folk rock band The Lumineers released their latest album Brightside on Jan. 14. Prior to the album release, they released three singles in 2021, teasing the album. The album has nine songs and spans 30 minutes. Written by Lumineer co-founders Jeremiah Fraites and lead singer, Wesley Schultz, the band considers it their “best album yet.”
TV Show: Only Murders in the Building
Unless you’ve been living under a rock — in which case, welcome — you’ve probably seen some supremely chill animals that look like coconut dogs come along your feed. This nonchalant lil’ dude is a capybara, Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris. Neat!
With a rise in student ambassadors repping various companies that cater to college aged students, I was curious about what kind of variety these companies would offer. Sure, clothing’s great, but who else wants to dine at the student-marketing table?
Coldplay released Music of the Spheres, their ninth studio album and their second in about two years, on Friday, Oct. 15, 2021. As a massive Coldplay fan, I had been looking forward to the release of the album since it was first announced in the summer. I also hoped to give it the same treatment I gave Everyday Life last year, when I made an attempt to revisit the album one year on.
In recent weeks, our news feeds have been inundated with reports about the situation in Afghanistan. Thousands of Afghans, many of whom helped western forces during their offensive against the Taliban, fled the country they called home after the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan. Military bases in the U.S. — such as Fort McCoy here in Wisconsin — have taken in thousands of refugees. In a heartwarming display of care, Wisconsinites have pitched in with fabric supplies for the refugees, to let them weave their clothes and feel comfortable adjusting to their new lives.
In a box under the bed
My introduction to late-night television was very recent. I remember utilizing shows by the likes of Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers to understand the partisan political landscape in America, starting when I got elected as an opinion editor at the Cardinal back in December 2019. At first, I couldn’t stop watching. The YouTube algorithm loves the monologue content these shows produce, and I found myself deep in a rabbit hole. At the time, I quite liked it. The shows seemed clever to me then, I must embarrassingly admit.
In December 2019, I wrote a draft for an article about how poisonous the urge for revenge can be — “the cycle of recycled revenge,” if you will. Ever the avid Coldplay fan, I wrote the article as a nod to lyrics from their song “Death and all his friends,” and it eventually saw the light of day in May 2020.
