‘The Outpost:’ a modern war film with meaning

Nolan Fullington, News Writer

October 7, 2020

“The Outpost” is a modern war film directed by Rod Lurie with a script from the writers who brought us “Patriots Day,” “The Finest Hours,” “Fighter” and a slew of “Air Bud” movies. So quite the odd filmography. A small unit of U.S. soldiers is alone at the remote Combat Outpost...

Discussion Posts: Is there a point?

Discussion Posts: Is there a point?

October 7, 2020

The transition to mostly online classes has come with a wide variety of ups and downs, but I believe the lowest low has to be the increased reliance on Canvas discussion posts. The newfound prominence of these discussion boards is a lackluster addition to the online learning experience because it...

“Enola Holmes,” Netflix’s newest original movie, had a good message, but it could’ve been done differently. The movie follows a 16-year-old girl who happens to be the sister of the famous Sherlock Holmes. When her mother goes missing, her brothers Sherlock and Mycroft come home to see what...

Pub Crawl Paul, 'Wisconsiner'

October 7, 2020

The name’s Paul. Pub Crawl Paul. No relation to Angel Dust — at least not directly. Never mind, don’t ask. What am I doing this weekend? Manically chugging wheat-flavored, inhibition-reducing La Croix from a perplexingly early hour. Why do you ask? Oh, there’s a pandemic? Well, let me tell you...

Why I deleted my social media accounts

Why I deleted my social media accounts

I deleted my personal social media accounts. All of them — Twitter, Facebook, Instagram — gone within the matter of a few minutes. It’s all been gone since Sept. 14 and I feel no different; I don’t feel disconnected, but maybe that’s because I was never really “connected.” It all started...

In praise of physical textbooks

In praise of physical textbooks

Owen Peterson, Opinion Writer

September 30, 2020

I love textbooks. More specifically, I love physical textbooks. This may be because opening up a textbook at my desk with a notebook and pen is a part of school that I have become nostalgic for, or it may be because I have a soft spot for all forms of physical media. Regardless, I have become a physical...

‘Bill and Ted Face the Music’ is pure fun

Nolan Fullington, News Writer

September 30, 2020

“Bill and Ted Face the Music” is another soft reboot of a comedy series from 25 years ago. This film joins many other films that fall into that category such as “Blues Brothers 2000,” “Clerks 2,” “Dumb and Dumber To,” “Ghostbuters (2016)”, “Zoolander 2,” “Super Troopers 2.”...

The History Club co-hosted a discussion of RGB’s on Sept. 29, 11 days after her death, to discuss her legacy. The guest speakers, professors at UWO as well as representatives from the Women’s Center, Political Science Student Association and American Democracy Project, all seemed to have very...

Dear Roger Goodell, I am sorry I doubted you

The last time an NFL game was cancelled was on July 22, 2011, when the first preseason game of the year (the Pro Football Hall of Fame game) didn’t happen due an ongoing lockout that had been occurring that year.

Cory Sparks, Assistant Sports Editor

September 30, 2020

As an avid football fan, I wanted nothing more than for this horrific year to be punctuated by another football season of big plays and crowds of thousands exploding in the enthusiastic chants many other fans have become accustomed to hearing. As a realist, I knew that this probably shouldn’t occur...

Six people you might see in your online classes

The Online Overachiever By the time the professor is done asking their question, this person has already had the “raise hand” button selected for 45 seconds. With an insatiable desire to prove their worth to a classroom full of students who probably aren’t even on their Collaborate Ultra tab, the...
