Sales of energy drinks are expected to grow at an annual rate of 12 percent and exceed $9 billion by 2011, according to a recent study by the research publisher Packaged Facts. These figures are up from $1.2 billion in 2002, according to a recent article in the Progressive Grocer.

Balancing Science and Ethics

For 17 years, researcher Ei Terasawa restrained rhesus monkeys and left them fully conscious while repeatedly pumping deadly chemicals into their exposed brains. It wasn't until the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) discovered that a neglected monkey had accidentally died under her care that her push-pull perfusion experiment was put on hold and the treatment of primates in lab settings was reevaluated.

An ever changing campus

The current Ogg Hall, located at the intersection of Dayton Street and Park Street, was built in 2007, with features the residents of ""Old Ogg"" lived without: more spacious bedrooms, central air conditioning, classrooms, kitchens on each floor, and updated security systems.  Old Ogg was originally built in 1965, and was torn down in Fall 2007. As with any building on campus that faces demolition, students who had ties to Old Ogg lost a part of their college experience when the building came down.

Who's ready for college?

Parents often say the high school diploma is no longer as valued as it was in the past, and insist that college is the best route to success. However, according to an August 2009 U.S. News and World Report article, 30 percent of university students drop out after their first year, and this alarming percentage could be linked to the lack of academic preparation given to high school students, which is essential to college graduation.

Early-bird sales fly in before Turkey Day

It was a tragic accident that should never have happened in the first place. On Friday, Nov. 28, 2008, over 2,000 people in line at the Wal-Mart in Valley Stream, N.Y., surged through the doors in the early morning hours of a post-Thanksgiving sale. In the ensuing flood of aggressive and violent shoppers, a Wal-Mart temporary employee was trampled to death, according to the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Overcoming the post-exercise cravings

An age-old proverb states that good behavior deserves a reward. Moms want the chores done, teachers want completed homework and coaches want to win games. And whether it is a treat from the cookie jar, a gold star or a starting position, the human body is conditioned to exchange hard work for a savory delight.
