Jarmusch tests 'limits' of indie cinema in new film
by ~The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2010
“"As I was floating down unconcerned rivers/I no longer felt myself steered by the haulers," says Arthur Rimbaud at the start of "The Drunken Boat," a poem about being lost at sea. These two lines serve as the epigraph for "The Limits of Control," a spiritual odyssey from Jim Jarmusch, one of the pioneers of the independent film scene in America back in the 1980s when independent filmmaking meant more than a quirky release from Fox Searchlight.”
An interview with the legendary musician Les Paul
by ~The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2010
“Les Paul, the 93 year-old guitarist and inventor of the Gibson Les Paul electric guitar, is a pioneer in the world of music. Not only was he one of the first to amplify the electric guitar, but he was also the first person to use multi-tracking, recording one part over another, in the recording studio.”
Hofstra athletics has a lot of potential this fall
by ~The Chronicle

Holocaust survivor speaks out on WWII
by ~The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2010
“Sandra Perl is not a child of Holocaust survivors. She did not lose any family members during that time. She admits that at first she felt she had no right to talk about the Holocaust. "My experience seemed pale, secondhand," she said. Despite this, Ms. Perl's trips as to Innsbruck, Austria, site of tremendous Jewish persecution during the Second World War, enabled her to establish dialogue with descendants of Nazis.”

by ~The Chronicle
May 06, 2009
“As part of an in-depth analysis of President Obama's first hundred days in office, two University students will be partaking in an intensive seminar in Washington D.C. from May 17-24.

Recession hits close to home
by ~The Chronicle
May 06, 2009
“As the recession of the late 2000s has caused financial strains on American's wallets, many have come to question how exactly the economic crisis has affected the University-what with college tuition high and rising and all
One observation which must be addressed is the University's hosting of a variety of noted speakers.”

Overheard @ Hofstra
by ~The Chronicle
May 06, 2009
“Around campus:
Guy: So if I come visit you this summer, I'll have a place to sleep?
Girl: Yeah; the street's always open.
Around campus:
Girl: Everytime you smack my butt, a butterfly dies.
Outside Enterprise:
Guy 1: Yo, I'm 5' 10".
Guy 2: Yo, you ain't 5' 10".”

Flying Dutchman
by ~The Chronicle
May 06, 2009
“If Jacob Sirotkin, Mr. S or Syrup Snob ring a bell, you're likely familiar with this accomplished and amiable junior from Vermont. And no, he's never indulged in any maple syrup drinking contest, though he will tell you that it's hard to find a good opponent in Hempstead.”
FORM Spotlight:
by ~The Chronicle
May 06, 2009
“Name: Raven Epstein
Year: Senior
Major: English Literature
How would you describe your collection?
The focal point of my collection in the gallery is a tile mural. The inspiration for it came from a Latvian folk tale I remembered and rediscovered. I also have on display 30 out of the 50 porcelain bowls I did for my independent study, three sculptures which speak to the theme I tried to communicate with my Rose and some other thrown forms that I felt fit in.”
