Although a Venti®-sized Café Mocha may seem like the perfect way to start your day, it’s actually quite the opposite. I’m not one to take away anyone’s daily caffeine fix, but there are ways to make sure that fix is as healthy as possible. As a barista myself, I know what goes into a Venti®-sized drink, and it includes, but isn’t limited to, a lot of unnecessary sugar.

The newest form of transportation technology, space boards, are gaining major hype, especially here at Ohio University. Today, most students have at least seen the new space board around campus, even if they have never ridden one.

New York Fashion Week kicked off on Thursday, September 10th and it has already made a huge statement this year; just not the kind you might be thinking of. Designers are being anything but discrete in highlighting the beauty of diversity in their Spring/Summer 2016 collections. Slowly but surely, designers are focusing less on casting the stereotypical size two, Caucasian female for their fashion shows, and more so on inclusiveness of all shapes, sizes and genders.
