Overall opinions on the RU-Rowan merger

There have been a great number of concerns and opinions with regards to the possibility of a merger between our beloved Rutgers University and Rowan University, one of our rivals, especially in the world of sports. Personally, I think many of our students' and faculty's concerns are well-founded. If we, one of the best and longest-running schools in all of New Jersey, with a name that practically screams “big-league,” were to suddenly become “The University of South Jersey” as it was over 100 years ago, then there would be a myriad of problems, which many of us have emphasized. These would focus primarily on our school's name, our sporting rivalry with Rowan, and those of us graduating that are looking for a job, which is interlinked with the first concern

Peppermint Brittle with Peppermint Cream Espresso

Peppermint Brittle with Peppermint Cream Espresso

As many of you know by now, I’m not a dessert person. Any desserts I have written are of the savory kind, contain no baking, and sometimes involve cheeses and herbs. Now that the Christmas bells are ringing, I just had to do something with peppermint. I crave the scent, taste, and sight of it.

Player Spotlight: Flyers Right Wing Claude Giroux

Player Spotlight: Flyers Right Wing Claude Giroux

Every now and then, a team gets lucky. They might get a good bounce on a ground ball, or have the basketball bounce just the right way off of the rim to have it drop for the game-winning basket. A golfer’s drive might miraculously dribble into the hole on a single stroke, and a “Hail Mary” pass might slip through the hands of three defenders in the end zone to reach the intended receiver for the touchdown as time expires. For the Philadelphia Flyers, luck was a lady when she helped them choose what would be the best player on their team with the 22nd pick of the 2006 NHL draft in Claude Giroux.
