It’s not often that art and science come together, but when they do, the result can be beautiful.
The creative fusion of art, science, and even history is the concept behind the Miller Gallery’s latest exhibit, Neurons and Other Memories , which opened on Friday. The exhibit is small and understated, taking up only the ground floor of the Miller Gallery’s already modest gallery space. The majority of the works line the walls of a small rectangular room tucked behind the gallery’s entrance.
Within that space, though, is a surprising diversity of works. Most pieces are from the 21st century, but other selections are centuries old, demonstrating humanity’s recent history — since the Scientific Revolution, it seems — of depicting science in visual formats. One such selection is an extraction from Diderot’s Encyclopédie : an almost fantastical illustration of a tree-man, branches and roots outlining the shape of the man like veins and arteries, demonstrating the neural connection...

At the end of September, California passed a wave of new bills that included SB 967, more commonly known as the affirmative consent law. The bill shows that California is responding to a need for laws that protect its citizens against sexual assault. However, the bill does not address the immediate reasons behind why sexual assault cases have become such a problem.
California’s new law requires that universities use affirmative consent — or “yes means yes” — as the definition of consent and provide training programs to their students, which will get people talking about consent and hopefully change the culture surrounding rape. However, the bill leaves huge gaps in terms of actually deterring and prosecuting sexual assault.
In most sexual assault cases, it is not a lack of a clear-cut definition of consent that is the major problem, but rather the lack of a proper response when such cases are reported. In Catholic Church sex abuse scandals, for example, there is no question th...

You will spend over $200 on energy drinks at Entropy. Unfortunately, that much Red Bull will not help you on your midterms.
If you're Irish, you've got the Irish luck! Otherwise it's time to play some Russian Roulette.
If you pass 100 levels of Candy Crush, your test will also be crushed.
Be on the look out for something surprising! After this unexpected encounter you'll have a different opinion on midterms.
Don't eat pizza; It will turn you a stomach ache and you won't be able to take your tests anymore.
The forth iteration of Super Smash Bros. is coming out. Don’t get too hooked; you’ll become a competitive pro gamer and miss your midterms.
You’ve worked long and hard for these tests, and your results will show how much it’s paid off. Now you can rest easy for the mid-semester break.
Bite the bedbugs; It'll give you good luck on your next test.
Sagittarians are known for their gentle nature — midterms, however, are not. Go hard or go home.
You'll meet a man with brown hair, glasses, and a skinny build. He will help you study. Find him.
Forget midterms. Let's go have a pool party instead at the University Center. Midterms don't matter anyways.
Looks like your luck wasn't as good as you thought; That late night studying wasn't so worth it after all. Better luck next time.”

The Carnegie Mellon men’s and women’s soccer teams hosted Washington University in St. Louis on Saturday, as they each continued University Athletic Association (UAA) play.
The men started out strong, fighting to rebound following their scoreless tie last week. After a quick initial shot on goal, the Tartans kept Washington away from the net while peppering the goal with five shots of their own in the first half, but nothing saw the back of the net.
The lack of scoring did not equate to a lack of excitement; three yellow cards were awarded in the first half alone, two of them to Tartans, before two more cards were split between the two teams in the second half.
Coming out of half time at a 0–0 stand still, both teams played aggressively, racking up a combined 19 fouls in the half (10 for Carnegie Mellon).
Unfortunately, even with the added aggression, neither team was able to find the net, causing the Tartans to go into overtime for the second straight game.

This past week, plans were announced to build an oil pipeline of massive scale that would connect Alberta’s energy-rich oil sands to the Canadian Atlantic coast just northeast of Maine. This pipeline is in response to a frustrating lack of a decision from President Obama regarding the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that would take the same oil through the United States to Louisiana and Kentucky refineries. The new pipeline, called Energy East, is more than twice as long as Keystone, carries a third more oil, and is a great example of how the desires of the market always come to fruition, regardless of legal impediments.
Obama hasn’t made a decision on Keystone because he’s been battling environmental criticisms from the left, while also facing flak from the right about letting those concerns prevent Keystone’s construction and all the jobs that it would create. Additionally, Keystone supporters tout that having a consistent source of energy from our friendly northern neighbor woul...

September marked a new season for all Carnegie Mellon student athletes. It also marked the beginning of the tenure of the new women’s water polo coach, Mark Rauterkus.
It all began one day in August. Sophomore chemical engineering and biomedical engineering double major Maya Holay, captain of the team, and teammate, sophomore design major Jillian Nelson were enjoying an informal pickup game at the Citiparks Ammon Pool in the Hill District when they met Rauterkus, who organized the game.
When the two athletes suggested a possible opportunity for Rauterkus to be involved in college athletics, he accepted the then-vacant coaching role.
Rauterkus is a swimming and water polo veteran, and has coached the former at various high schools since 1976.
In the past, he has cumulatively coached eight college seasons, two of which were dedicated to water polo, at schools like Ohio University, Baylor University, Bradley University, and Chatham University.
In addition to university ...

Online news media has sent out an unofficial missing persons report for the North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un. Now, in true North Korean fashion, the government has no comment on the matter.
During the dictator’s absence, every news source has made its own speculations, ranging from a military coup to severe caviar-induced gout. Any person with an Internet connection has been able to witness the inflammatory nature of digital journalism.
Last Friday, the North Korean Workers’ Party celebrated its 69th anniversary, with the country’s third-generation leader nowhere to be seen. His absence at the ruling party’s festivities, acknowledged only by the presentation of flowers in his name, further piqued the interest of writers following the retreat from the public Jong-un began on Sept. 3.
In the absence of facts and answers, news sources have begun assuming the nature of the 31-year-old ruler’s disappearance: fleeing a military coup, injuries from a military drill, severe...
