    Tania, the cove truly is a beautiful oasis in the city – I highly recommend checking it out when you have the chance. I have looked through the website you’ve linked here and, if I am ever in need of an aquarium, I will reference your page again, thank you.

    Santino, thank you for the organization recommendations! I’ve written them down and will definitely check them out. I believe that while it is good to shed light on the situation, it is also as important to let others know how they can help those who find themselves in such a position. If you ever get the chance I highly recommend looking through…[Read more]

  • I trekked briskly through the bustling New York City streets. My stomach sounded like a volcanic eruption as hunger gnawed at my insides. I met with a good friend and we resolved to create a list of food venues to […]

    Loved your article! It was so comedic I was literally laughing out loud at the beginning. You raise some serious and thought provoking questions about memes that I have honestly never thought of before!

    I agree with you! I feel as if politics has become more of an act than a platform for change. Our leaders rarely if ever speak their mind and constantly throw around rhetoric that they perceive the people want to hear with little to no follow through. Gone are the days when a leader would stand up and genuinely tell their citizens the truth. “The…[Read more]

  • As September rolls around and the summer heat begins to dissipate, it’s time for us to start leaving those beach balls, sunglasses and spf 90+ sunscreens at home. Sweater weather is upon us, but don’t let that get […]

  • In The Wings of a Dove, the topic of money and its power over humanity arises time and time again. How far will someone go for money? In the case of The Wings of the Dove we see that people will sell their […]

    • The way in which money (or what money can buy) influences almost every character in the novel is clear. What you might want to address as well is the way *secrecy* shapes the ways in which their relationships form and change. In the film Milly is candid and Kate has secrets–particularly with respect to her relationship with Merton. In the novel James balances the situation: Milly keeps her relationship with Merton secret from Kate (ineffectually, because Merton has been writing to Kate from America) just as Kate keeps her relationship with Merton secret from Milly (quite well in the short run with assistance of lies from Aunt Maud — though ineffectually in the long run since Lord Mark susses it out and tells Milly).

  • A few weeks ago a couple friends and I decided to hit the New York City nightlife, so we pulled up on the karaoking scene.  I have a unfathomable love for karaoke. Where else can you go to get locked into a room […]

  • Amy Heckerling’s exaggerated depiction of Jane Austen’s Emma, proves a comical counterpart  to the novel. The characters are transformed and dramatized to provide the viewer with a completely different and some […]

    • Actually, I thought one of the weaker links to Emma was Elton putting Cher’s photo of Tai on his locker. A watercolor portrait seems to be a personal emanation of the painter far more than a snapshot does.

      Interesting point about Mel: perhaps the key link to Mr. Woodhouse is that Mel despite his active busy life (or I should have said because of it) is also a kind of “absent father” who is less engaged in directing Cher’s growing up than the standard father might be. Like Emma, Cher doesn’t have a parent who is seriously doing any parenting (for example, taking his daughter out to teach her to drive). He makes rules and gets mad but that’s it.

    Very informative piece, I love how notate the difference between racism and prejudice, as some might believe those two go hand in hand – definitely thought-provoking.

  • Gurinder Chadha’s film adaption “Bride and Prejudice” is by far the most creative interpretation of Pride and Prejudice that we have watched. Through Chadha’s aesthetic interpretation, cultural integration and […]
