If more people watch and learn from it, more people may be able to identify media that may have questionable motives. Leni Riefenstahl may be a great filmmaker, but that does not automatically excuse her poor morals in making the film.

Former Vandal is a musical duo out of Fort Wayne, comprised of Quinn Wentz (vocals) and Christian Delzoppo (drums). Currently, on Spotify they have more than 57,000 monthly listeners.
In fact, that is the exact purpose of this piece: to examine freedom of speech in the ever-changing media and political landscape, and whether or not YouTube can—and should—be allowed to make these decisions for their platform, at the expense of viewers and content creators alike.
As the last few weeks shake out, there seem to be three tiers: the top two, the bottom two (or three), and then everyone else in the middle.
The most heartbreaking aspect of the film is the absolutely horrible treatment of the victims. Little was offered in the way of relief, and poor leadership let the city fall into chaos.
On April 20, 1999, two students entered Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado armed with assault rifles, plenty of ammunition, Molotov cocktails and two propane bombs set to go off at 11:17 a.m.
After an explosive year for smartphones, there were many skeptics believing that Samsung would be unable provide an innovative and amazing new phone that would live up to the hype set by the previous year. After watching the official release video, I have one thing to say to those skeptics: You were right.
This generation can be the generation to end gun violence.
Squeezing the trigger, I aimed for the old beer can. It flipped up in the air scattering and spraying everywhere.
We lost 17 kids. Seventeen kids could have been doctors. They could have been teachers. They could have grown up to be the next president. Seventeen kids that could have really made a difference.
The notion of arming teachers with firearms is problematic because it doesn’t consider the responsibility already placed upon the shoulders of teachers.
For fans of 3D stylish-action games, most people probably know about the protagonist: Dante. The fun-loving, pizza-hogging, wise-cracking demon hunter with a stylish red coat and more weapons than he has limbs. Where did Dante get his start though?
The sound of the plastic wrap tearing off of the case, the first look of the artwork on the booklet, taking the disc out and popping it into the stereo for the first time; this ritual took place every time I opened a new CD.
'In A Poem Unlimited' is by far the most ambitious and well-rounded record to date for Meghan Remy. The record finds a balance between genre experimentation and authenticity, a balance that most artists struggle with. Remy finds an equally impressive vocal balance, knowing when to quiet down and when to blow the roof off, an awareness that was inconsistent at best previously. Thematically the LP disarms you with assumptions. In a pleasant, easygoing song, she may soon be talking about killing a man; in a song about the gender pay gap, the drums may sound like they’re being played with a toothpick. Remy plays with moderation, goes left when the listeners say right, and forces them to observe the world through the lens of a woman in 2018.
Wakanda is not a real country. But what’s important is that it could have been, which is one of the core messages behind Black Panther that makes the film so poignant, especially at this moment in history. In the film, the fictional country features an amalgam of African cultures and traditions, with Wakanda representing what might have been in the absence of the violence of colonization.
Only the top six teams will be competing for that big win and a chance to represent North America at the Mid-Season Invitational and I don’t think every team has a chance to get there.
'Always Ascending' is a fresh take on Franz Ferdinand’s more pop roots. While there aren’t any standout hits, each song provides a unique emotional experience for each listener. This is due to the unique mesmerizing and powerful use of the beat. For old fans and new, the band has created a new image that is set to satisfy.
Episode 5 is by far the most difficult to follow due to its frequent flashbacks and flashforwards. The emotion that is felt is incredible and genuinely touching. Andrew’s love for David is put into perspective and so is the anti-LGBT discrimination in the military during this time period. This episode isn’t as engaging as previous episodes, but leaves you with an emotional attachment to Jeff and his family.
MGMT has recovered incredibly well from the muddled experimentation of their third album. ‘Little Dark Age’ sees the band returning to the hook-dominated landscape of ‘Oracular Spectacular’ and ‘Congratulations’, while also keeping the unique flourishes that defined their self-titled record. Though it is not entirely original in its psychedelic pop sound, its smart humor and tasteful melodies more than make up for any reckless borrowing. It takes all of the best parts of MGMT’s past releases and blends them together to bring forth an intense, whimsical new era for the band.
Overall, Black Panther succeeds as an excellent entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It delivers on being an action adventure film, a political statement, and a celebration of African culture. While the film does start off a bit stagnant, the cast’s performances and emotional themes keep the film on the path in becoming an entertaining ride.
