“No Surprises” by Radiohead is a song I always loved,especially as kid. The song is a single off their album OK computer. The soft suddle,and almost eerie beginning is what really sets the tone for the whole song. It’s something unique that I have never heard before in many other song . The song itself is very depressing and sad,but extremely interesting. I find myself listening to it over and over again and never getting tired of it. Even the music video is something else, Thom Yorke seems to be in a reflective space mask.
Creedence Clearwater Revival, “Fortunate Son”, written by John Fogerty has a lot to do with the Vietnam war . It talks about how people are born with a “silver spoon in their hand”. This refers to the upper class. Because someone was rich,and had money they could afford to go to college and be able to stay out of the war. The draft was also biased toward people,of power such as a “Senators son”. Since the “Unfortunate ones” are not born into wealth or power,they are most likely the ones being drafted and sent to war. It also seems he implies that the fathers of the “Fortunate Ones”,are the ones who started the involvement in the war. While they are the ones sitting at home watching it on TV.
Everyone in Chicago seems to have a love-hate relationship with the CTA. It gets you where you need to go for a low cost of 2.25. Sure you may deal with the typical Hobo,or creep that wont stop talking to you, but that’s just a small price to pay. It saves money on gas,and you don’t have to deal with traffic. Being a long time rider of the CTA i was confused when they introduced the new Ventra cards. Chicago card,and Chicago card Plus users are no longer able to load fares. By December 15th,they will no longer honor non-Ventra cards. FIRST of all, It took me forever to receive my Ventra card. I sat in front of the machine for 10 minutes trying to figure out how to use it. Its 5$ for the card,that will later be used for future transits.I sent my address confirmation like 20x and it took forever! Once i got the card,and whenever i used it,i had to swipe it like 10 times for the card to work. I thought it was suppose to be faster, and more efficient. Guess not. After countless times of use,I noticed I was being charged double at times when I scanned my card more than once. REALLY? Leave it to the CTA to make things much more complicated.I also waited 20 minutes on hold,and was disconnected thank you CTA.
To some the comedy style of Saturday Night Live,may be a bit “outdated” or “dry”. But even today I can’t help but to laugh when watching the shows reruns from the 70′s 80′s and 90′s. I’ve always been able as a kid every Saturday to have something interesting to watch. It’s iust something that you know will always be there for you on Saturday night,when you want some authentic original comedy. I found “The lunch lady song” by Adam Sandler extremely entertaining as a child when I first watched “The best of Chris Farley”. I find so many funny things from the show,that I hear people use all the time. Who could forget the bare midriff of Will Ferrell, with his cowbell,or the” Church lady”. Some people haven’t even heard of the show,which I find shocking. It was the basis for so many great movies. Most of them starting as just sketches. Saturday Night Live has an authenticity about it,that keeps me coming back. You never know whether something was scripted or if it was real. The actors are laughing along with the audience,making it all the more hilarious! Not me it shows,just how not fake the show is. The show always has a wide variety,and it never seems to disappoint. Even with a bad episode,Istill find that it was worth my time to watch it.
The pill, is used to prevent pregnancy after, having unprotected sex. Since pregnancy doesn’t happen immediately after sex ,its possible to prevent pregnancy. The pill works by keeping a woman’s ovary from releasing an egg. Others conatin Ulipristal which increases the thickness of the natural mucus at the cervix making it more difficult for sperm to cross from the vagina into the womb. Therefore there is no egg to be fertilized. If taken by women within 72 hours its “89% effective at preventing pregnancy”. Plan B One-Step,emergency contraceptive, is one of the only kinds that can be bought at any age. Others need to be bought with a prescription if 16 or under. Social conservatives are concerned that making the drug “Widely available to teens of any age,and will undermine their authority over their children and remove negative consequences of sex”. This isn’t true. This pill, should be a backup plan. Hence the name”Plan B”. Its something that woman should have available in case,unexpected unprotected sex is had. Things happen,condoms may break,or non consensual sex happens. It allows them to have control of the situation. Woman shouldn’t be left with no options after these unexpected things happen. However ,this should not be used as regular birth control. It shouldn’t be the only plan young people have for contraception. The use of condoms,should still be highly encouraged,because Plan B does not Prevent against STDs. The drug should also not be confused with an abortion pill, such as RU-486. The “Morning-after” pill works to delay/prevent pregnancy. It does not work after the egg has been fertilized,like RU-486,which destroys implanted embryos. Different religions,and people consider a “human” life at different points. Some may consider the second a sperm meets the egg,a human being.But for this pill to be considered abortion,it needs to terminate an existing pregnancy. So before a fertilized egg implants who is pregnant? NOBODY. There is no evidence that emergency contraceptives,cause harm to already existing pregnancies. This pill is a safe way,for woman to be able to prevent pregnancy in a situation where it is needed.
I decided to try a recipe over the weekend. Its perfect to get into the fall spirit. Even though,it was a bit of a hassle to make it was completely worth it. The outside was crispy and the inside was warm,and soft just a brownie should be. The soft cinnamon pumpkin also counteracted the sweet of the chocolate. It was like getting pumpkin pie and brownies all in one! Sadly, these lasted about 10 minutes in my house. I definitely want to make them again!
Being a triplet or multiple really isn’t as great as people may think. I hear it all the time, ” Oh I would love to be a twin! I would love to have someone to talk to all time and play with growing up.” I’ve heard it all.This is really not the case. Being a triplet,and having two brothers that are identical is the worse. I’m constantly arguing with them,and it’s just like any brother sister relationship. But keep in mind there are two of them and one of me! I always am the one to lose arguments,because I’m outnumbered. People always assume we’re close,because we grew up together. But in reality,it makes things worse to be the same age.
There are many downsides. Try sharing basically everything! You can’t do anything by yourself without having your siblings right there next to you! Try sharing your birthday! I don’t know what it feels like to get a lot of attention for one day because two other people are getting just as much! Also we live with a sort of “competition”. Being in the same grade and talking to the same people means nothing is ever kept a secret. We constantly try to get each other in trouble. I’d rather have two older or younger siblings than to have them be the same age.
