It's a classic dilemma: You've finally turned in that take-home exam and you sense that the occasion calls for a celebration, but all your blockmates are busy and the trek to Berryline seems daunting. Before you turn to the time-honored solution of logging into Netflix, Flyby has a few suggestions for celebrating in a more functional way—here are beautiful, alternative creations that you can make yourself.
"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'" You've heard this quote from Mr. Rogers so many times over the past week—over television, the radio, and on Facebook and Instagram and Twitter. Surely it would've gotten stale by now if only it weren't so true, and here at Harvard, we've gotten to see firsthand the power of "helpers" throughout the crazy mess that was last week. Flyby thinks they deserve some recognition—so here, in no particular order, is a list of some of our favorite "Harvard Helpers."
First you get a survey and here's how it goes / Fill out it, tell the truth, we won't judge or disclose / And have a conversation on your drinking (pause) goals
Call the Winklevoss twins "craggy" and "Neanderthal-esque" or "aggressively aristocratic" if you'd like... but don't accuse them of failing to learn from their mistakes. The Winklevosses again in the news once again, and this time we've learned that they're heavily invested in some internet technology that's definitely not Facebook. The New York Times reported yesterday that the Winklevosses own "one of the single largest portfolios" of bitcoins, a digital form of currency.
The U.C. continued its now-annual tradition of hiding Easter eggs around the Yard today, but this time, chocolates weren't the ...
The stakes were raised this Housing season, when most Houses put out multiple full-length videos (even if they weren't all official). And since there are still some two-odd hours before the first freshmen will receive their housing assignments - what better way than than to celebrate by rewatching all of the videos of the past weeks?
If Houses had relationship statuses, Leverett would be the friend-zone. Between housing and the Masters, there's a lot to really really like, and yet Lev is still in search of love. All the descriptions below come with the huge caveat that Old Lev (McKinlock Hall) will be renovated next year, improving housing, facilities, and the dining hall significantly. Perhaps puberty will succeed in catapulting this perpetually unobjectionable House into the hearts of millions. Or hundreds, at least.
The self-styled “hottest star from China” extended Harvard men an offer of marriage on Monday—but the choosy husband-hunter said that Asians and those without a Masters degree need not apply.
The past three weeks have seen an explosion in theft, particularly of Apple products. Though reports fielded by the HUPD often skew towards the absurd, recent logs have also shown a troubling rise in physical violence committed on campus. As part of our Securitas Series, we've combed through recent HUPD logs and published some of the more colorful entries below.
An inside look at the meeting minutes that didn't actually happen.
Ben & Jerry's in Harvard Square is showing its Linthusiasm with a new frozen yogurt flavor, "Taste the Lin-Sanity". Ordering it comes with a cute gimmick: shoot a basketball, and if you make the basket, you get a $1 discount on the froyo. What's inside, though, is less benign. The original frozen yogurt contained honey lychee swirls and fortune cookie pieces, according to manager Ryan Midden in an interview with the Boston Globe.
These past few weeks saw a number of incidents surrounding bathrooms and loitering, and even a few cases involving loitering in and around bathrooms. As part of our Securitas Series, we've combed through recent HUPD logs and published some of the more colorful entries below. BY THE NUMBERS: Unwanted guests: 19 Unwanted guests at Au Bon Pain: 7 Demonstrations: 9 Demonstrations at Lamont Library: 5 Total value of stolen Apple products: $4,130 Total value of stolen fedoras: $80 Total value of stolen boats: $2,200 Harassment reports: 5
When Corinne H. Curcie '15 and Katherine J. Zhou '15 heard that CS164: "Mobile Software Engineering" might be lotteried, they decided to take preemptive action. The result is Super Malan, a video parody of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass."
January saw HUPD getting the usual bizarre dispatches, though it's been a quiet month overall. Theft and suspicious activity are down, as are noise complaints (the month's sole loud party was thrown in Adams.) As part of our Securitas Series, we've combed through recent HUPD logs and published some of the more colorful entries below.
