Wands at the ready.
This summer, Universal Orlando Resort expanded its wildly successful The Wizarding World of Harry Potter with the addition of Diagon Alley in its Universal Studios theme park.
Like the original Hogsmeade village section, opened in 2010 and located in the resort’s Islands of Adventure theme park, the new section immerses visitors in a world as rich as the books and movies that inspired it and offers a limited yet satisfying lineup of additional Harry Potter -themed rides.
Standing outside the Diagon Alley expansion, visitors might think they’ve booked a ticket to London instead of Universal Studios. A recreation of London’s Eros Fountain stands in front of the Kings Cross railway station, a few stores, and a traditional red phone booth. The only things that may seem out of place from this seemingly non-wizarding world is the purple Knight Bus parked next to the fountain and a magical orchestral score emanating onto the streets.

In the midst of multiple foreign policy crises and racially motivated shootings, it’s difficult to take a step back and look at the larger picture of President Obama’s stewardship of the country. However, six years into his presidency, it’s time to start examining the legacy our president will leave behind.
As many of us remember, when President Obama was ushered into office on a tide of hope, change, and most importantly, bipartisan support, it seemed like our country had turned a corner and another Era of Good Feelings was upon us. We’d finally found a charismatic leader who represented the antidote to everything we’d hated about his predecessor and offered us the post-partisan, post-racial future that Americans yearned for. President Obama promised to restore foreign policy sanity, safeguard individual freedoms, reform health care and immigration, and make the economy a fair place to earn a living after the recession.
Six years from then, it’s apparent that none of that hap...

Every year, several impressive teams from last season take huge steps back. Based on offseason moves and some statistical indicators, here are some teams that might disappoint in 2014.
Kansas City Chiefs
After going 2–14 in 2012, the Kansas City Chiefs made a series of big offseason moves and became the second consecutive team to go from worst to playoffs.
However, there is a reason they only had an excellent start. Last season could be split into two parts: their undefeated record before the bye-week and consistent failure after it.
Before the bye, this Chiefs team beat up on a very weak schedule. Only one of the teams they played reached the playoffs, and only two could muster .500 records. The playoff team they did play was the Philadelphia Eagles in week three, before Nick Foles replaced Michael Vick and made that team good. The Chiefs were very lucky to pull out one-point squeakers against the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans, two mediocre squads.
Overall, ...

The Carnegie Mellon Athletics Department began offering an expanded outdoor recreation program last week and will continue the program this the fall with a stated goal of “providing greater extracurricular opportunities for members of the campus community,” according to a university press release.
The department said it bought equipment for a number of outdoor games, such as badminton, bocce, cornhole, croquet, Kan Jam, ladder ball, Spikeball, volleyball, washer toss, and wiffle ball.
“Our ambition is to provide more opportunities for social engagement through sport, competition and physical activity,” said Director of Athletics Josh Centor in the release. “We have strategically invested resources in a way that we feel will maximize our potential in this realm.”

If you’ve ever wondered how much sugar is in that smoothie you just ordered or wished you could buy fresh produce right on campus, you’re in luck this semester.
Carnegie Mellon Dining Services will offer extended hours, expanded menu options, furniture additions, new events, and other changes at numerous dining locations this semester.
According to Director of Dining Services Pascal Petter, the changes have been in the works since last September. While some alterations were vendor-driven, the vast majority of changes are the direct result of student feedback gathered online, in person, and at Student Senate and Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) meetings.
Highlights include a campus nutrition app, strict kosher dining options, weekly farmers markets in Resnik eatery, late-night hours at Carnegie Mellon Café, and now-available breakfast blocks at Tazza D’Oro.

The university announced at the end of the summer that the 2014 session of the Carnegie Mellon Institute for Talented Elementary and Secondary Students (C-MITES) program will be its last.
A letter on the C-MITES home page announced, “As the 2014 summer workshop session ends, we are writing to inform you that the Carnegie Mellon Institute for Talented Elementary and Secondary Students (C-MITES) program at Carnegie Mellon University will not be continuing after July 31, 2014.”
C-MITES, which had just finished its 22nd year, offered summer programs for gifted elementary and middle school students across Pennsylvania. The program was founded in 1992 by Ann Lupkowski-Shoplik, who also served as its director.
The letter on the C-MITES website continues to say that C-MITES “offered challenging weekend and summer programs in mathematics, sciences and the humanities for thousands of academically talented students as well as professional development activities for educators.”

Unless you have been living in a cave for the last few weeks, you are likely very familiar with the viral ice-bucket challenge that has taken Facebook by storm. Chances are you’ve watched videos of people who have dumped large buckets of ice water onto their heads with little idea of why they were doing it besides impressing a few friends. Everyone from Bill Gates to former President George W. Bush has taken part in the challenge. I myself took the plunge.
Along with the $10,000 worth of cash that Charlie Sheen dumped over his head, the ALS Association (ASLA) has managed to raise over $41.8 million as of Aug. 21. However, while significant, it is only 0.01 percent of the total $416.5 billion that Americans donated to charitable organizations last year.
This low donation rate shows one of the major flaws with viral social media campaigns. As Malcolm Gladwell acknowledges in the The New Yorker , “the platforms of so...
