Exploring privilege through “7 rings”

(02/15/19 2:08am)

Let’s face it — we all aspire to create a life for ourselves that makes others jealous or a life that we can rub in the face of our haters and competitors. Just ask Ariana Grande, who recently dropped her newest album that features the hit song “7 rings.” As the song suggests, we all are motivated by the idea of proving someone else wrong and finally being able to capture the life we all really want. Perhaps even to say we are “motivated” is too soft — we thrive off the idea of “making it.”

(02/15/19 2:11am)

The City of Charlottesville began the process of updating its comprehensive plan for the first time in five years and the zoning codes for the City for the first time in 15 years in fall 2018. Although the process of revising the City’s comprehensive plan is legally controlled by the City’s Planning Commission, which is made up of seven voting members, the City has decided to bring in an outside consultant to help with the project as well. 

PUBLIC EDITOR: Social Media section should take greater care with corrections

(02/18/19 4:01am)

The Social Media section plays a major role in disseminating Cavalier Daily articles — the majority of page views come from Facebook or Twitter links. However, the section can run more smoothly in cases of emergency and increase accountability among the readership by streamlining protocols and processes on corrections.

BLANK: Time to play Jay

(02/13/19 4:03am)

When he committed to the Cavaliers, Jay Huff was an under-the-radar prospect — Virginia had been one of his first official scholarship offers — but for those who knew him, Huff was defined by limitless potential. It is not often a seven-footer with a three point shot comes to Charlottesville, let alone one who had been receiving interest from Duke, as Huff had.

Paging through the past: An examination of Corks & Curls

(02/12/19 6:31am)

Since the recent emergence of the photograph on Gov. Ralph Northam’s (D-Va.) 1984 medical school yearbook page depicting a person in blackface and another dressed as a member of the Ku Klux Klan, the Virginian political sphere has been in turmoil. In the days that followed, not only has Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax been faced with allegations of sexual assault, but Attorney General Mark Herring (D-Va.) has announced that he also once dressed in blackface for a party — while he was a student at the University in 1980.

U.Va. and students address underrepresentation in Orientation Leaders

(02/14/19 4:55am)

Orientation Leaders are often one of the first faces newly admitted students encounter when arriving on Grounds. As an OL, the primary task is to welcome new students, make them feel comfortable at their “new home” and make new students feel like they made the right decision in choosing the University. Orientation sessions give students the opportunity to ask questions, familiarize themselves with Grounds and get to know new people from housing and dining services, as well as academic advisors.

Thank U Ariana Grande for saving pop music

(02/12/19 1:15am)

Ariana Grande is hard at work. Less than six months after the release of her fourth album, “Sweetener,” she managed to score two Grammy nominations, two number one singles and release her fifth studio album, “Thank U, Next.” In an interview with Billboard Magazine she said, “My dream has always been to be — obviously not a rapper — but, like, to put out music in the way that a rapper does. I feel like there are certain standards that pop women are held to that men aren't.” Grande not only challenges these standards—she shatters them. 

“The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part” — some things are awesome

(02/13/19 3:06am)

When “The Lego Movie” premiered in 2014, general expectations were dismissive and cynical. Animated movies centered around children’s toys and licensed merchandise are typically cheap, disposable fodder destined to either fill space on television channels or distract children on long car rides. But “The Lego Movie” shattered the mold with hilarious writing, creative visuals and an earnest appreciation of child’s play. As a direct sequel to the surprising favorite, “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part” is saddled with expectations in the opposite direction. Although it fails to reach the spectacular heights of its predecessor, “The Lego Movie 2” is a fun and uniquely appealing movie in its own right.

The soup to make for the times when you wish you were at home

(02/13/19 5:24am)

It’s after 8:00 p.m. on a Tuesday, and you just got out of your organic chemistry exam — or maybe it was microeconomics. Whatever the class, we’ve all been there. The temperature is a nice, chilly 42 degrees, and it’s raining — because we are in Charlottesville, Va. after all. There are two things I can think of that would make me feel better in this situation —  a big bowl of hot soup and my dog. One of the two of these is possible, thanks to this recipe.
