Silence of the Tigers: Horror after halloween

The Newtonite December 10, 2013
First of all, here’s some advice: don’t make a blog post about having started a Horror Blog after Halloween, otherwise known as the exact time you should have started blogging. Second of all, give yourself a day of mourning because the best holiday of the entire year has just ended, and if you didn’t dress up, carve pumpkins, and watch Halloween specials or classic horror movies you did something wrong. Don’t worry, getting all of these things done before or on the day of Halloween is quite difficult, and I myself have regrettably not mastered this art yet. If you didn’t buy or make a costume, getting cheap face paint can work just as well in making an impressive Halloween get-up.

Column: Serious about Syria

Column: Serious about Syria

The Newtonite September 17, 2013
To most Americans, the Middle East has become synonymous with war and chaos. Every day seems to bring new turmoil to the region, from the common coups and border disputes to the exceptional self-immolation that set off the Arab Spring. Currently, Syria’s raging civil war serves as the conflit du jour—one order of ruthless dictator who mercilessly attacks his own people coming right up. Despite the fact that this debacle has been ongoing largely overlooked for the past two years, the recent discovery that chemical weapons were allegedly used by Bashar al-Assad’s regime has caused an uproar across the globe.

The Student Foodie: How to make the perfect sandwich

The Newtonite February 8, 2013
Out of all the foods I cook and enjoy, I bring sandwiches more often than any other lunch. They’re versatile, easy and most of all delicious. Unfortunately, sandwiches are difficult to transport, especially inside a backpack that’s constantly slamming onto the floor and being flung over back. Achieving sandwich perfection, or rather finding sandwich perfection when you open your lunchbox at lunch time, is no easy task.
