All bodies are beautiful. Earth, on the other hand, hasn’t been looking so hot — unless you count global warming, of course. Whether it’s carbon dioxide emissions or the burning of one of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth, we’re making the world uglier every day. At this point, it seems we don’t really have a grasp on what’s important, especially when it comes to food.
About a week ago, I was in a discussion focusing on what made UF alumni special. I learned that several companies specifically seek out our alumni above all others, but I never learned why.

Over a week ago, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House of Representatives was launching an official impeachment inquiryinto President Donald Trump. The announcement came after reports emerged of an anonymous whistle-blower complaint regarding a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky.

The weather is still unbearable. You feel a gentle breeze here and there, but Mother Nature lied about the fall season — or at least we did something to mess it up. Either way, it’s hot, you’re sweaty and the walk from the Reitz Union to Library West isn’t making things easier.
