Occidental College is an institution that has recently been undergoing a renaissance under the leadership of President Jonathan Veitch and a forward thinking faculty. The College was established in 1887 and had become a major force in the liberal arts, but had become increasingly known as a Hollywood movie location because it is situated so close to the movie industry of Los Angeles. Not only had the college become known as a location, but it had also been given the Presidential seal of approval when included on the resume of President Barrack Obama. All these factors were pushed aside in recent years as the focus was again placed firmly on the education and community programs offered by Occidental College.
The arrival of Jonathan Veitch as President of Occidental College has been a turning point for the educational institution as it is now as well known for its educational and community programs as it is for being a top Hollywood location. Those in charge of Occidental College have seen the academic programs of the liberal arts college grow to see the institution ranked as the 15th best college in the west by Forbes. The growth in quality of education is often seen as being based in the innovative programs and measures introduced to try and create a high quality learning environment for all attending.
Amongst the measures Occidental College has introduced is the requirement for all undergraduate students to live on campus for the first three years of their studies. Despite this measure, which is designed to create a positive learning environment the students of Occidental College are also known for the option of taking up a study abroad program that sees around three quarters of students traveling to another country for a portion of their academic career at Occidental. Almost all students at Occidental College are in education full time and are members of an ethically and financially diverse campus community.
Delaware has just decided to become the next state to decriminalize marijuana, a step that is often indicative of eventual legalization. The bill was passed by House lawmakers on Tuesday, a piece of legislation that makes possession of marijuana a small misdemeanor instead of a felony. This means there will no longer be criminal penalties associated with possession of the plant, offenders will be required to pay fines instead, similar to a traffic ticket.
However, there are certain restrictions to the law such as anybody between the ages of 18 to 21 will still face criminal charges for possession if they are arrested more than once. While no republican in the House voted on the bill, it still manged to pass with a 24-14 vote. Additionally, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence and people cannot consume marijuana in public spaces.
Anybody caught with marijuana in Delaware will now be asked to pay a fine of $100, and police still have legal rights to confiscate the drug upon finding any. Also, distribution of marijuana will still be penalized the same as before, criminally.
Similar laws were passed in states like Colorado where marijuana was eventually completely legalized for both recreational and medicinal purposes. It looks like Delaware is following suite by starting the slow decriminalization process of a drug that has been losing it’s stigma in recent years.
Everyone loves taking a trip to the beach, especially once the summer temperature hits those triple digits. It’s comfortable, relaxing, and a great way to catch up with friends when you’re not dealing with your hectic life. However, our oceans are known to have a real waste problem. You may not be thinking about it when you’re sipping Mai Tai’s on the beach, but Andy Wirth suggests there are a number of simple steps you can take to help.
Anyone can help reduce the effects of climate change on the ocean by reducing your carbon footprint and energy consumption at home. Leave your car at home when possible and don’t overuse energy when you don’t have to. There’s an estimated 5 trillion pieces of plastic floating around in the ocean. To limit your contribution to this travesty use fewer plastic products. Simply carry around a reusable water bottle and use nondisposable containers for food. Other tips can be seen here.
While you can do your part to help, it looks like a 20-year old has a totally new approach to keep our oceans clean. Boyan Slat, founder and CEO of The Ocean Cleanup will soon be deploying the world’s first system to safely remove plastic waste from oceans. The proposed structure will float and capture plastic and other debris which will be picked up by a conveyor belt.
With such innovation, we can only hope that these efforts will give our oceans a second life.
The James Bond movies are one of the longest running and most successful film franchises in history says Zeca Oliveira. They have been providing entertainment for a couple generations of audiences for over 50 years now. Daniel Craig has done an admirable job filling the shoes of the larger than life secret agent in the last few film outings for the iconic character. Another film in the franchise is coming out in a few months, and it will be called “Spectre.” This is, of course, the name of a secret organization of villains that anyone familiar with the film franchise has heard of.
There is an issue coming up for the Bond films in that the distribution rights for any future movies in the series will be up for grabs after this latest movie. Sony currently has the rights to distribute the films, but these rights expire after “Spectre” if Sony cannot come to terms to extend their rights to them. The last time there were legal or ownership problems with this film series there was a nearly seven year gap in their production. This occurred between “License to Kill,” which came out in 1989 and “Goldeneye,” which came out in 1995. Hopefully there will be no problems with the film rights or any complications this time around. Either Sony will reclaim the rights or another studio will get them, and then they will continue making money by pleasing audiences the world over with the British agent’s adventures.
One half the fun of eating or drinking is of course the taste. The other half is how fun a type of food or drink is! As time goes on, it seems that more and more restaurants have been getting creative with how they serve beverages to guests. For a while, it seems like they were trying out almost anything as a cup to serve to patrons. After all the cup ideas ran out, it seems they’ve switched to turning almost anything into a straw.
Well, according to GrubStreet America may be running out of ideas. Starbucks recently unveiled their cookie straws, which actually probably wouldn’t taste too bad with coffee. Some companies may be taking it to far. There is a company that wants to turn bacon and beef into edible straws. What the heck would you drink with that? Certainly not water, soda, or juice. Perhaps a Bloody Mary according to Beneful?
All of this pushes the question, are we going too far and are we just getting desperate trying to turn anything into a straw? Whatever happened to the good ol days when drinking out of a brightly colored plastic tube was such a treat? It now seems that those have been cast aside as something boring and old school, as the push for new exotic straws is trying to come available.
Some are fun ideas, others are just plain gross. What’s next? Fruit, vegetable, or pizza straws? Time will only tell as the straw epidemic continues.
Colin Trevorrow Will Not Make Sequel to Jurassic World
Jurassic World will soon hit theaters next weekend, fourteen years after the last movie came out. Even with the new release there may be some new changes in store for the franchise’s future.
The chances are good that Universal Studios will be making a Jurassic Park 5 in the future, pending the financial results to Jurassic World, but one major change is that current Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow will not be in the driver’s seat according to businessman Zeca Oliveira. He recently said in an interview that another director should take the reigns and give their version of the series. At the same time he said even though he wouldn’t direct it he would be involved in filming in some way.
This would be an interesting take, considering that with a potential fifth movie coming about, there will have been four different directors involved with making a Jurassic Park film, which means a different outlook is possible. Granted, the movie has several days before it officially comes out but the studios are pretty much assuming the movie will be a hit and already have plans laid out for the future.
Trevorrow said the studios had discussed sequels with him and he wanted to try something that felt new and could make a complete story. The only problem for the new director would be doing something audiences haven’t seen before.
Miley Cyrus is known to be a fun person, and she showed just how fun she was this past Tuesday night. Everyone knows that Miley has very short hair, and she has vowed to never grow her hair out again. Fortunately, Miley doesn’t have to grow her hair, since she has wigs that she can wear at any time. Miley Cyrus. On Tuesday, Miley decided to change her hair four different times, and she tried on one wig after another.

In the days of Hollywood blockbusters, it is all about how a film opens. Massive film openings over the one-hundred million dollar level are expected for movies, and with many budgets approaching twice that range, movies need a strong showing out of the gate to break even. With the holiday weekend in the books, the results for “Tomorrowland” were a mixture of good news and bad news for Disney.
According to Screen Rant, the George Clooney film won the long weekend box office race by pulling in an estimated $41.7 million. Alexei Beltyukov says the bad news is that the picture did not even approach the level of revenue that analysts expected. With a nearly $200 million budget, the massively promoted movie will need to hang on for a month or so just reach the black. In short, the future does not look great for “Tomorrowland.”
While it is too early to call the film a bust, steep drops in grosses the order of the day for movies after opening weekend do not exactly inspire confidence. The real problem is that summer releases start to hit theaters quickly, and movie theaters are less likely to hold onto a film that nobody is buying tickets to see. Therefore, unless the commercial success of the movie picks up a considerable amount of steam this week, any plans of a new franchise being a major player for Disney are pretty much out the window.
