Word of the Week: tactile

Word of the week: I love this word for several reasons. It sounds, to me, like what it means. Tack-tile—pushing thumb tacks into cork boards. Tocar—Spanish for “to touch.” Even those fun “t” and “c” consonant sounds, that voiceless alveolar stop and that voiceless velar stop, suggest that contact is being noisily made. I also just generally enjoy words that have an “-ile” suffix. It looks and sounds sleek a ...

Watching the Bachelor with the Bachelorettes

Let’s face it; The Bachelor in GC terms is equivalent to the most eligible Joy Boy starting the year off dating an entire floor of Burritt, only to find himself with one lucky lady just in time to give her a ring by spring. While it is agreed that this type of behavior would be deemed inacceptable on our campus, damaging to our intentional Christian community, and probably against the lifestyle statement, we find it a perfectly acceptable form of entertainment. Add to the mix the fact that the contestants range from single mothers to straight up crazy ladies and you have The Bachelor. ...

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. ...

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 ...
