Clothing Your Character: All Things Red

Red. This color has come to symbolize passion, romance, power, and life. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, it is especially prevalent in commercials and stores everywhere. Red has a rich history, dating all the way to ancient times. Neolithic hunters believed the color to possess life-giving powers and placed red ochre in the graves of their dead. Many passages in Scripture reference the color, for example: in Exodus, God instructs Moses to have the Israelites make him offerings of blue, purple, and scarlet cloth. The ancient Egyptians associated red with life, health, and victory, often coloring themselves with red dye during celebrations. Even then, the women used red pigments for cosmetic purposes. In ancient Rome, red held an important status of religious symbolism. The Romans wore togas bearing red stripes on special occasions and used red dyes to color the skin of gladiators and works of art. ...

W/R/T Quote-Unquote Gentlemen’s Swag (as it were)

Written by John Thomas Brittingham. DM by Jessica Sturgeon A survey of the sartorial values held by a great number of Greenville College Males (GCMs) produces an army of plaids and skinny jeans from which hang carabiners of keys that jangle at even the slightest movement.

I Like Books

Written by Mikey Trieb. There's an article on Gizmodo that I found peculiarly interesting. It's called "Amazon: Paper Books Are Dead, Or Something." It's an informative article that explains how books are seemingly becoming more and more obsolete.  This article should be of interest to just about everybody.  The printing press was invented by the Holy Roman Empire around the year 1440. Since then, it has ac ...

Clothing Your Character: The Source of True Beauty

Written by Maggie McCarthy. The quest for beauty leaves many women feeling empty and worthless. While Christian culture tells us that our beauty comes from within, society feeds us an opposite message. Constantly bombarded with images of beautiful, fashionable, and successful women, we feel that we will never measure up. This unattainable perfection tells us, “You are not good enough. You are not beautiful. ...

Better than Stray Cats: Shifting Perspectives on Community Dining

Written by Jake Cannon. Many things have been said about the DC. It’s gross, it’s disgusting, it’s an abysmal pit only the lowest of the low would enter. It is the precipice of hatred and malice. The last two were exaggerated of course. But I’m sure as you lumbered through the glass paned door, sluggishly drug out your ID card, handed it lazily to the person at the counter and made your way to a meal you’re ...

Homer’s Odyssey: A Tale of Pajamas and Bowl-cuts

Written by Jeff Langley. Now, I don’t want to brag, but…nah, forget that—I’ll brag. Every year, grades 5-12, I was number one in my class. It’s true. I was tight with my teachers—I was, without question, their favorite, and we’d often hang out on the weekends. I got away with a lot. More often than not, I’d show up for school in pajamas. I’d keep a coffeepot going all day and take naps as needed. It wasn’t ...

Couples Cooking Corner: Baked Cheddar Broccoli Rice Cups

Before, I was pretty hungry a lot of the time. I wouldn’t have said it then, but I was. Mainly, this was because I could often be found eating cheese with bread (or DC food). And no, not grilled cheese sandwiches. I was munching on cold cheese, hard bread, and salsa spread for quite a few lunches and dinners back in the day. It’s not that I’m a bad cook; it’s just that I don’t cook. However, things have cha ...
