Friday and Saturday evening, Tisbert Sketch Comedy, a daughter organization of Scotch‘n’Soda, featured a variety of student-written sketches, displaying the group’s talent as both writers and actors. Joke after joke connected, aided by flawless delivery from the five actors, and made for a very entertaining show. If there was a drawback, it was that the show ended after only an hour.
The show took place in the fictional #town (pronounced ‘Pound Town,’ because of course it was), explained in a monologue consisting entirely of expertly crafted double entendre, delivered by first-year Dietrich student Brianna Hudock. The audience’s introduction to the tight community of #town was just the opener in a night’s worth of innuendo and absurdist humor that Scotch‘n’Soda is so adept at working into everything they do.
In addition to pre-written sketches, Tisbert incorporated an element of audience participation into their show. Approximately halfway through the night, junior engineering...

Coming to the end of college is bizarre. Even though I’m not leaving Pittsburgh or moving out of my house, the idea of having a future without schoolwork for the first time in my life is alien. Equally bizarre, however, is no longer writing for The Tartan as a student. The Tartan was the first club that I joined my first semester, and I’ve dutifully contributed 58 different articles to this newspaper since then, creating a library of work mostly about politics, asserting my right-leaning libertarian take on current events, but also flirting with religion, ethics, art, and music.
Reflecting on my work, it seemed fitting that my last article for The Tartan as a student would be some grand summary of all that I’ve learned in my years at Carnegie Mellon, leaving The Tartan with a Last Lecture-esque piece imparting three- and-a-half years of wisdom on the paper’s readership. Sitting down to write that article, however, proved more difficult than expected.

Scientific research is generally understood to be based on well-founded reliable evidence, yet even scientific conclusions have the potential to be affected by fraud. Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University and Stanford University have created an online laboratory that has the potential to reduce fraud in the scientific community.
Conventional research structure mandates that scientists formulate hypotheses and personally test them themselves. Alternatively, Adrien Treuille, assistant professor of computer science and robotics at Carnegie Mellon, and Rhiju Das, assistant professor of biochemistry and physics at Stanford University, proposed the use of online laboratories, in which participants from the general public play online video games that allow investigation into scientific research areas.
Treuille and Das have developed their own online lab called EteRNA that focuses on the structure of RNA, a biological molecule involved in gene expression, protein synthesis, and ...

On Monday, Student Government launched a new website as part of an initiative to engage the student body.
The website, spearheaded by Student Body President Ian Glasner and his cabinet, was created by junior information systems major Jake Correa, chief technology officer, and senior design major Sam Ahmed, chief marketing officer.
"It is our hope that the website will help to gauge students' interest of different issues to better allocate Student Government's limited time and resources," Glasner, a senior electrical and computer engineering and business administration double major, said.
The website, which requires a valid Andrew ID to vote, lists on its home page five initiatives that were conceptualized by Student Government. Students can vote on which of the projects they think the cabinet should concentrate its efforts on. The current listed initiatives concern: the university moratorium policy (better known as the 'no class policy'), a tobacco-free campus policy, an in...

We’ve all heard the mantra time and time again: “If you want something bad enough, go for it. Never let anything get in the way of your dreams.” While resonant at some early point in our lives, this phrase has turned into a comfortable cliché often thrown around during commencement speeches. But, really, how bad do you want “it”? In the case of 19-year-old jazz drummer Andrew Neyman (Miles Teller), “it” is the all-too-close yet so-far-away ideal of becoming one of the greatest jazz musicians of his time (think a modern-day Buddy Rich). He’s passionate and driven, attending the prestigious and fictionalized Shaffer Conservatory of Music when, during a night of intense practicing, he unknowingly attracts the attention of renowned conductor Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons).
From the moment that Fletcher is introduced on the screen, it’s pretty clear that this is a man with a no-holds-barred personality. He bares the stern and unflinching presence of a military commander more than a c...

You love the outdoors. If the weather is cooperative, why not throw a Thanksgiving picnic at your favorite local park this year? Get a small, pre-roasted turkey to keep it simple, and ask your friends and family to bring their favorite dishes.
Because your such a great cook, you usually end up doing all of the cooking. Give yourself a break this year and gather everyone at your favorite restaurant for an unforgettable holiday meal.
You might enjoy organizing a progressive Thanksgiving meal this year. People could begin at your place with appetizers and drinks, then move on to a health-conscious Virgo's house for salads and soups. Ask a Taurus or Cancer who loves to cook to host the main course.
You often panic during holidays, afraid your meal won't turn out perfectly or that people won't get along. This year, take the pressure off yourself by having the meal catered or prepared the day before.
Indulge your adventurous spirit this year. Arrange a Thanksgiving dinner at your favorite ski lodge or golf course.
Nothing makes you happier than gathering the family around you at holidays. Why not extend your definition of "family" this year and volunteer to feed the homeless at the local shelter? It is Thanksgiving after all.
Your idea of heaven is to celebrate the holidays with your clearly beloved. Search online for gourmet recipes that you know will please and set the table with your finest china and candles.
Let's face it — sometimes you can't be bothered with holiday gatherings. It's okay to indulge your desires to be alone this year, or spend Thanksgiving with one special person.
Try a change of pace at Thanksgiving this year by inviting friends and family on a cruise during which a sumptuous meal is provided.
Because you love tradition, organize an authentic Thanksgiving this year. Don't forget cornbread, squash, and wild fowl. Serve some berry tarts for dessert, and wash it all down with cider or wine.
The more the merrier for you, so why not join others at your local community center this year for a group?
You like to do it all, so make the rounds this Thanksgiving. Buy a few bottles of wine or sparkling water and take one to each place you visit.”

Last Friday, Aereo, a service that promised to offer the free over-the-air television service that providers, media companies, and the government failed to provide, signed its death certificate with a Chapter 11 bankruptcy. While the company had a valid argument for its legality, it had no chance against mainstream media corporations. Like many innovative companies that have attempted to disrupt entire industries and move the world forward, Aereo was forced into bankruptcy by a long fight in court with defunct regulations and a broken system.
In actuality, Aereo did not violate copyright laws. It was simply a service that rented out tiny, controllable Internet-connected antennas to users in a visually appealing interface. Each user rented their own antenna and picked up service like they would normally legally be allowed via their own personal antenna. It was essentially a remote TiVo.
However, while young tech-savvy people rejoiced that they would be able to watch news channe...

Dear Evan,
I started living with two girls and a long-haired guy this year. Now, every time I try to take a shower, the water backs up to my ankles because their hair keeps clogging up the drain. I have to keep a mechanical pencil in the bathroom to poke a hole in what looks like an insect’s lair, so that I can drain the water every morning.
I would take the hair out, but I’m just too disgusted to do anything about it myself. I’d also bring it up with my roommates, but I don’t want to create a hostile living environment (and I’m afraid they’ll just make me do it). Also, with Thanksgiving coming up, they all offered to make dishes, since I have to be at work that day — I’m a cashier at a … an adult product store. But I can’t go on like this!

Before I bake for my friends and family, I spend at least two days stressing about what I want to make — especially around holidays. It has to be something everyone will like, something I will like, and something that will be fun and seasonal.
Since this is The Tartan’s last issue for the semester, I want to leave you with a holiday flavor. I was considering gingerbread, cranberry, and peppermint when I remembered what I made for my family last Christmas — nutmeg cupcakes with eggnog frosting. They were so perfectly seasonal and delicious that I knew this was the recipe to share with you.
Holiday flavors have such a unique, nostalgic ability to capture our hearts. With just one sip of eggnog, a whole flood of Christmases past come back. When I ate this cupcake again this week, I was transported back to my Grandma’s house for our Christmas party last year, where I sat around the dining room table with my aunts and uncles and cousins, full of that good ol’ holiday cheer. I hop...
