Your go-to healthy student grocery list

(09/12/19 3:18am)

Grocery shopping can be a daunting experience, but it is something I personally look forward to every week. I consider it a stress-relieving activity and love strolling through aisles, aimlessly browsing and waiting to be inspired by a product that jumps out to me. Unfortunately, a majority of the time I have to be in-and-out due to my schedule, leaving no time for browsing and following my stomach’s desires. 

LUND: Women’s soccer is an unstoppable force in 2019

(09/10/19 1:33pm)

Before the 2019 season began, Coach Steve Swanson returned to Charlottesville fresh off of a World Cup win in France with the United States Women’s National Team, ready to take on the year with renewed confidence in his Virginia team. Just six games in, the No. 5 Virginia women’s soccer team has already justified its high expectations with dominant play on both sides of the ball. 

Common flower provides U.Va. researchers with climate change insights

(09/12/19 4:07am)

Hidden within delicate blue petals and a green slender stalk, the American bellflower offers more than just aesthetic value. Biologists at the University of Virginia and Washington State University published a joint study Aug. 29 focusing on the effects of historic climate change and range expansion on the development of the American bellflower — Campanula americana. With climate change occurring on a wide scale, researchers used the American bellflower as a model to provide insight on plant and animal reactions to historic and current climate change and to predict responses to future climate change. 

Can a cover band reinvigorate music from 1967?

(09/11/19 11:57pm)

On “A Day in the Life,” the epic closing track on The Beatles’ album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” four tracks of a 42-piece orchestra combine for a crescendoing glissando, followed by a dramatic E-major chord from three overdubbed pianos. These are the kinds of effects that epitomize the album — the first since The Beatles stopped touring in 1966 — and the ones that resist live performance.

Interpol captivates at the Jefferson

(09/11/19 7:55pm)

Since the early 2000s, Interpol has been a shining light in the heart of New York City. The band put its name on the map with debut album “Turn on the Bright Lights,” released in 2002. After 9/11, the city was looking for a revival — and Interpol provided some answers. Their raw, warm tunnel-of-darkness soundscape turned the formed NYU pupils into internationally-renowned rockstars. 

MCKELVEY: U.Va. should follow in Hampton’s footsteps

(09/10/19 3:42pm)

Since Hurricane Dorian stormed through the Bahamas earlier in September, inhabitants of the islands have lost their homes, loved ones and even their own lives. As of September 9, the death toll has risen as high as 45 people, but it’s expected to rise significantly in the coming weeks. Additionally, over 13,000 homes and businesses have been destroyed —  humanitarian and reconstructive work must be done on the islands before its inhabitants can return to normalcy. 

Ditch the dairy: Taste-testing three non-dairy ice cream brands

(09/10/19 1:55pm)

According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, approximately 65 percent of the international population is lactose intolerant, and many other people are choosing to cut dairy out of their diets for other health reasons. With choices such as almond milk, soy milk and oat milk now available, substitutes for dairy milk are all the rage. Restaurants and coffee shops are more accommodating today for dairy-free customers than ever before.

(09/10/19 3:52am)

The No. 11 Virginia field hockey team continued its hot play coming off of a weekend in which it beat Old Dominion and Penn State. The Cavaliers (4-0, 0-0 ACC) beat UMass-Lowell (1-2, 0-0 America East) and No. 14 Ohio State (3-1, 0-0 Big Ten) in back-to-back showdowns that highlight the depth and all-around strength of this year’s squad.

It’s Virgo szn, ladies.... Let's pretend to get our lives together!

(09/16/19 2:29pm)

Let me start off by saying that this piece was entirely conceived out of a deadline, but the fact that I'm even following a deadline is the best example of Virgo energy rushing through my veins. I realized I signed up to submit something by tomorrow at 6 p.m. went, “Oh, expletive” and flipped through some relevant go-to ideas. I could give advice to first-year students, but I’m in no state to be telling anybody what to do, and I’ve always been a fan of figuring it out as you go anyways. I could complain about corporate America promoting fall-centric products while I’m still sporting tank tops regularly, but I need to leave something for the straight men in our staff to complain about. My first ever article was about horoscopes, and nobody but my father said anything to my face about that, so I’m continuing my astrology fanaticism with a discussion on Virgo season. 

DRISCOLL: This year’s Welcome Week Concert was nothing short of inexcusable

(09/09/19 4:30pm)

Since 2016, the University Programs Council has hosted its annual, University-wide concert during Welcome Week to celebrate the return of students to Grounds as well as the arrival of the incoming first-year class. This event directly coincides with Block Party in the hope that it will deter students from visiting the area surrounding Wertland Street — a site that has traditionally been a hotspot for violent crime and underage drinking during move-in weekend.

LAWSON: Why the Electoral College still matters

(09/12/19 2:09am)

In contrast to 10 years ago, you don’t need to search long in order to find a parade of college students, politicians, academics and entertainers all calling to abolish the Electoral College. Among them, per usual, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) voice rings loudly — indicting the institution for its supposed repression of racial minority voters. But a surprising number of less radical Democratic politicians have decided to join Cortez. Most notably, Presidential candidates Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Beto O’Rourke, Julián Castro, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) have all spoken out in support of eliminating the Electoral College in favor of a nationwide popular vote. 

New school year, new crib, new me

(09/09/19 4:27pm)

I’m only a couple of weeks into living in my apartment, but every aspect of having my own place makes me feel like a real adult. I’m 2,500 miles away from my family, yet I feel so at home being able to do everything — from going grocery shopping to cooking dinner — for myself. I’m still learning how to do the little things that my parents would always do, like doing the dishes or cleaning up after my infamous kitchen messes, but I can’t imagine living in a dorm again.
