The town of Salerno, Italy, is known for its proxim- ity to the Amalfi Coast, not for housing destitute under- grads, but that is exactly the situation a handful of Ole Miss students found themselves in this summer while studying abroad.

Mosquitoes. Hordes of them. Thousands, no-millions. As thick as the night sky, they descended like the blood-thirsty vengeance of mother nature herself. For six long hours we suffered through the plague of insects. I tried everything I could think of. We emptied a can of 40 percent Deet repellant. We wrapped ourselves in our hammocks. At one point I even tried burying myself and smearing my body with mud.

Graduation is right around the corner; you’re probably ready to get rid of the car that you’ve had since high school.

 

Graduation is right around the corner; you’re probably ready to get rid of the car that you’ve had since high school.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure your ’93 Camry has done you well, but it is nice to have a car with a working air conditioner, a headliner that doesn’t sag, doesn’t need two quarts of oil at every fill-up and doesn’t have that bottle of grape juice that’s been in the trunk since 2006 and has now fermented into wine.

The movement to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United vs. Federal Elections Commission ruling and confront the idea of “corporate personhood” has never been as important as it is today.

 

The movement to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United vs. Federal Elections Commission ruling and confront the idea of “corporate personhood” has never been as important as it is today.

During a Republican primary and with the general election just down the road, hundreds of millions of dollars have already been poured into the race, and corporations are already trying to buy the election.

In the state of Mississippi and across the country, teachers must be certified in a certain specialization called an endorsement.
To have an endorsement, the teacher must have a master’s degree in education, and while getting the master’s degree, the teacher can choose from several different endorsements. The endorsements are ultimately several hours of class that focus on a specific type of disorder and the teacher learns how to identify, teach and treat those with the disorder.

So in “Immortals,” a ruthless maniacal king wants to, you guessed it, take over the world.  Along the way, he and his army come across a village where they slaughter everyone except a muscle-bound warrior who they turn into a slave, but he escapes and seeks bloody vengeance on them.

Sound familiar?

Also, that muscle-bound warrior has been trained and looked after his entire life by none other than Zeus, king of the gods, disguised as an old man.

Sound familiar?

With everything students deal with on a day-to-day basis, they can be subject to overdraft fees on their banking accounts, leaving little money for important things. A Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation study found that most costumers aren’t informed of overdraft until after using an ATM for a point-of-sale transaction.

Exercise science sophomore Kate Davis said she thinks it’s easy for students to overdraft because they aren’t notified prior to the transaction.

After a two year hiatus, BMW’s über-sedan returns next summer with two less cylinders, two more turbochargers and a lot more sophistication. 

The F1 inspired V-10 from the previous generation is gone and is replaced by a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 that makes 560-hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. Not only is this a 53-hp jump from the previous M5, but it is the most powerful engine BMW has ever produced.

As humans, we naturally take sides on certain things. 

We learn this profound characteristic as children. We talk back to our parents when we do not agree with something they tell us to do. We get in fights with our siblings when we want something that they have. Here at Ole Miss, especially right now, we know a little bit about conflicting parties involved in a pretty significant occurrence.

About three years ago, University of Mississippi journalism instructor Ellen Meacham used her debit card at a nearby TJ Maxx. 

About three years ago, University of Mississippi journalism instructor Ellen Meacham used her debit card at a nearby TJ Maxx.  

However, when she checked her bank statement a few weeks later, she noticed something wrong.

“It was significantly in the red, like $3,000 or $4,000 in the red,” Meacham said. “I was getting ready to pay bills, and I just couldn’t imagine what had happened.”

What happened is part of what many consider to be the largest instance of data theft in history.
