Seven Reasons you Must Watch “The Office”

Nominated and winning multiple Emmy and Golden Globes awards, “The Office” is a documentary-style television show following a small paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Under the direction of a clueless boss, the show makes fun of everyday life in an office setting. From office parties gone awry to plot and character development, the show has a sense of humor that’s offbeat and unique, which is why I loved it from the very start.

A Song About Torture? No Thanks

In the song, “Sucker for Pain,” there are five artists featured, rapping and singing. These artists are Ty Dolla Sign, Lil Wayne, Imagine Dragons, Wiz Khalifa and Logic. This song is a part of the album, “Suicide Squad,” which is also the title of a recent movie released in August. There is a strange and scary tune to this song that gave me an aversion to it from the moment I heard it. The idea that comes to mind when it comes on is, “Time to change the station.”

The barbs and accusations keep flying, mud continues being slung like never before in recent history, and policy discussions remain vague. In our continuing series, our MBU Timeline bloggers write about these “Faulty Arguments” that are too often being sold — or attempted to be sold — as truth to an electorate that needs to be informed like never before.

Internet: Democratizing Utopia or Cesspool for Trolls? –part 3

PART 3 IN A SERIES: While the original ideal of the internet was a space for unregulated democracy-encouraging dialogue, it has devolved to a place where trolls get thrills by abusing people, while hiding behind screen names. When MBU Timeline’s staff writers read the Time magazine article Tyranny of the Mob by Joel Stein, they decided to blog about their thoughts and feelings regarding internet trolls.
