As Valentine’s Day rolls around the corner, two thoughts come to mind: iconic romantic comedies and the struggles of modern dating. Like Kat, I too have found the modern dating pool to be quite the shallow dive, so finding a valentine calls for some additional help. Since I don’t have a wingman like Cameron James on my side, I have resorted to a modern solution for a modern problem: dating apps.

So, dear Tinder, while there are many things I hate about you, mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you, not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

The Friars certainly gave them a warm welcome back, turning up the heat in the second half to cruise to a 73-61 win over the No. “Obviously disappointed, just really embarrassed by the way we handled ourselves in the second half,” said Connecticut coach Dan Hurley postgame. Unfortunately for the Huskies, their woes continued into the second half and they never regained the lead. An early Alex Karaban triple suggested things were picking up, but the team still finished 4-for-15 from deep in the second half. “It’s always really good to be back in Gampel, we’ve got a very tough opponent, Creighton is a really good team.2 months ago The Daily Campus
On Dec. 6, 1992, Pittsburgh Pirates star outfielder 28-year-old Barry Bonds signed a record-breaking deal at the time: a six-year, $43.75–million contract with the San Francisco Giants. While he was always able to produce during the regular season, Pittsburgh consistently struggled in the postseason.

Many of UConn’s environmental recommendations are aimed towards students’ actions despite the fact that UConn as an institution contributes significantly more to climate change. This is entirely insufficient to address the mounting threats of global catastrophe posed by climate change and the economic and political systems fueling it. The function of this is to create a facade of sustainability where sustainability does not authentically exist. While we recognize the importance of pushing for truly fossil fuel-free institutions to combat the climate crisis, it is more important to recognize that UConn is not and cannot be the end-all-be-all of climate activism and organizing. To remedy this — to win long-term and widespread environmental justice — activists must adopt a political vision of environmental justice too.5 months ago The Daily Campus
