Located in the Miller Gallery on campus between the Jared L. Cohon University Center and Warner Hall, the multimedia exhibit, curated by Casey Droege, features pieces from artists such as Edith Abeyta, Michael Lewis Miller, Gavin Benjamin, David Bernabo, Alexis Gideon, Ulric Joseph, Jessica Langley, Celeste Neuhaus, and Drew Droege. The exhibit, which is part of the 2014 Pittsburgh Biennial, is open from Sept. 20 to Nov. 30.
Catching Power by Ulric Joseph features a series of oil paintings that depict themes of corruption, materialism, culture shock, and racism. All paintings in the exhibit feature interesting use of color and glitter. The glitter mixes into the colors of the paintings, making it difficult to immediately discern, warranting another look. The paintings depicting cultural and native life in Trinidad, Joseph’s home country, use vibrant primary colors. As a result, the colorful background and clothing heavily contrasts against the dark skin of Joseph’s subjects, ac...

22 Jump Street
If you are like me and have had enough of Jonah Hill for the next ten years from watching The Wolf of Wall Street , but could stare at Channing Tatum’s jawline for hours, then you will probably like 22 Jump Street . The Hill-Tatum pairing is very well balanced (hence the sequel). But this time they aren’t going back to high school. No, sir, they are moving on up to college (just like us!). The studious, detail-oriented Schmidt (Hill) and athletic, idiotic Jenko (Tatum) are once again assigned to a case that involves them going undercover to arrest the drug dealer of a new drug called WHYPHY. Though very similar to 21 Jump Street in structure, the writers were aware of this and made fun of themselves as much as they could. This sequel, while eccentric at times, gives a spirited take on the cop movie.
Chef
Have you ever seen a movie starring food? Me neither, unless you count Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and its sequel. So let me introduce you to Chef , a lighthearted chronicle of cook Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) moving from the cutthroat world of high-end cookery to the gritty world of food trucks. Jon Favreau steps out from behind the camera and takes a stab at being the leading man. The supporting cast is nothing to scoff at, with Hollywood heavy-hitters like Dustin Hoffman, Robert Downey Jr., and Scarlett Johansson. This is the classic story of man getting fired from highbrow job, man starting own company, and man’s company becoming successful. All that needed to happen next was “man gets own Food Network show.””

When you are surrounded by people who are very rigid and stubborn, your easygoing and adaptive attitude will be a welcome relief to the people around you.
You have been riding a wave of luck, and now it's time to give credit to those who have helped you along the way.
You will come into conflict with someone in a leadership role. Try to alleviate the tension by taking on a more generous point of view.
Don't get too carried away when coming up with new ideas. You need to be more practical in your way of thinking. Innovations will only come true if they're built on a strong foundation.
Your mood toward your career is very strong and practical, but your approach will only be effective if you're willing to take a leadership role. This is the key to your success.
Sometimes people have conflicts of interest. You want to expand forward creatively while another person wants to put you on hold. Try and find a compromise.
Don't back down from your position. You are in a good position in which you can accomplish a great deal.
Someone with a great deal of influence will enter your life soon. Prove that you are worthy by demonstrating that you are trustworthy and hardworking.
It's a rough time for your career with a tough superior who is always breathing down your neck. Be flexible and accommodating instead of stubborn. You'll work through it.
You can ride the wave of good fortune, but try to disregard the negative comments others are giving you. Try to let go of the little bumps on the way and focus on your goal.
Whether a person has requested direct help or not, it is important to lend a helping hand. It will be returned later when you are in a pinch.
The boss you are working under doesn't seem to be taking all perspectives into account. This shortsighted view could cause problems for you and your co-workers later.”

Last week, Scotland put practical concerns over national pride and voted to remain part of the United Kingdom.
Fifty-five percent of Scottish voters opted to remain part of the UK after with an 85 percent voter turnout, Scottish voters made the wise choice of electing to remain part of a mutually beneficial political and economic union.
The desire for Scottish independence is more than understandable; Scots have a culture, accent, and history that is distinct from England. The Scottish parliament has also pursued a much more liberal agenda than the English parliament; has not taken the austerity measures the rest of the United Kingdom has; and still offers free university tuition to all students.
Many Scots also rallied behind the ideas of removing British nuclear submarines from bases on the Scottish coast and less involvement in unpopular military action in the Middle East.
These compelling political and social motivations moved 45 percent of voters to support separa...

Imagine not having to leave your room to attend class. Instead, your morning routine consists of climbing out of bed and turning on your MacBook. Video feeds of the professor and eight other students appear. After introductions, your professor asks a question about the reading.
Instead of waiting for a student to raise their hand, the professor asks each of you to complete a poll that will test your understanding of the assigned reading. Your answers are then displayed so that you can be called on to defend them. In this situation, you do not have a choice in answering, and, more importantly, you are kept on your toes. This is an example of a class at the Minerva Project.
Minerva is an accredited university with administrative offices and a dorm in San Francisco. According to Ben Nelson, its entrepreneur and founder, and Stephen M. Kosslyn, the cognitive neuroscientist and former Harvard dean with whom Nelson has collaborated, this class setting is the future of higher educat...

“Sexy role model” not a contradiction in terms

Mainstream media seems to have a pretty good idea of what constitutes a “good role model” and who fits the bill. Case in point: The Internet went into uproar last week when rap superstar Nicki Minaj tweeted indignantly about Fiorello H. LaGuardia Arts High School’s refusal to let her return to “the school that changed [her] life” and “inspire” students. Since Minaj and I share an alma mater, needless to say I was shocked to hear that the new principal Lisa Mars declined the visitation offer of one of our school’s all-time most successful graduates.
Speculation flew wildly about the reasoning behind the snub, and I’ll admit that I bought into Minaj’s insinuation that it was because the principal didn’t consider her “good enough.” In terms of music video views or albums sold, no doubt Minaj’s celebrity sufficed; but as a “role model,” LaGuardia’s principal would surely be neither the first nor last to believe Nicki Minaj not good enough.
In later reports, the principal defended...

They always said the Devil would be attractive. They just never said he’d be the guy who sang “Get Lucky.”
These words must certainly have passed through Robin Thicke’s mind a few times in the last year. The R&B crooner’s career suddenly exploded in March 2013 with the release of “Blurred Lines,” an I-just-can’t-help-myself-no-matter-how-hard-I-try catchy ode to womanizing that Thicke, according to album credits, co-wrote with Pharrell Williams. The song, as we know all too well, went on to become the “song of the summer.”
But the Devil was lurking in the shadows, and as “Blurred Lines” shot to the top of the charts, Thicke saw his life disintegrate in the afterburn.
Controversy surrounding the song’s misogynistic and rape-condoning lyrical content, as well as the infamous NSFW music video, made Thicke a token in conversations about sexual assault.
A performance at the VMAs with Miley Cyrus — the twerk heard ‘round the world — put him at the center of a cultural firest...

Dear Evan,
It’s Saturday night, and I’m drunkenly stumbling around Shadyside trying to find my way home, and my phone is dead. Here, this large patch of grass looks like a nice place to rest. Should I just sleep here for a couple hours?
Incoherently,
Plodding Homeward, In Repose as Intruder on Plot
Dear RIP PHI,
Something very similar happened to one of my old roommates.
He decided to sleep there, but a policewoman picked him up. The kind woman invited him — well, shoved him — into the back of her vehicle, escorted him back to his apartment — which ended up being a block and a half away — and knocked on one of his roommate’s doors (my door).
“Is this his apartment?” she asked, pointing to a sheepishly grinning roommate. Meanwhile, I was experiencing rapidly fluctuating emotions somewhere between pissed at being woken up, and frightened at there being a policewoman standing in my living room.
Apparently, he wasn’t fined or cited. So yeah, go...

It’s weird that James Blake, considering the style on his latest album, was first compartmentalized as a dubstep artist.
Have you heard Overgrown ? No? “Save yourself first.”
The remix of “Life Round Here” is an interesting track. Blake’s voice floats over a beautiful electronic atmosphere of blossoming synthesizers and light drums until Chano (Chance the Rapper) jumps on the track out of nowhere in the same fierce way that Andre 3000 leaps on “Do Ya Thang,” the surprisingly slamming song Andre teamed with the Gorillaz and James Murphy to produce for Converse sneakers.
You have to love it when a talented producer and a skilled rapper collaborate, and that’s exactly what happens here.
