Former UAA history professor Dieter Wuerth gave a discussion at the bookstore Oct. 7 about controversies surrounding the outbreaks of plagues. The speech was largely based upon the works of Samuel K. Cohn Jr, who wrote “The Black Death: The End of a Paradigm.” The main controversy Wuerth discussed was if the second pandemic of plague, or “medieval plague” which began in 1347, and the third plague, or “modern plague” that broke out in 1894, are the same disease.
The Canadian Banff Mountain Film Festival has a night dedicated to action and extreme sports films, dubbed Radical Reels. Each year after the festival, the films tour around the world in the Radical Reels Tour.

With recent stirrings in the black community regarding the appropriateness of Iggy Azalea’s participation in hip-hop, a common complaint wasn’t the mimicry in musical style, but rather the artist “trying black culture on for size” — disrespectfully appropriating language and aesthetics to fake an identity and background that is not her own.
It’s hard to believe when listening to Idiot Pilot’s “Strange We Should Meet Here” that so much noise can be made by just two...
It seems Spartans are getting all the glory these days. But as incredible as Frank Miller's "300" is, movies aren't an interactive format. Luckily, the gods created video games. Those intelligent enough to play the original "God of War" for the PS2 were treated to one of the greatest action games of all time.
