Preparing for a Natural Disaster

According to experts, it is better to drink tap water than bottled water. Here's why

In recent years, a debate's been brewing about whether bottled water is better- whether it actually tastes discernibly different to the average consumer, but more importantly, whether it's healthier. We already know that the use of plastic water bottles pollutes the environment over the long-run, but in fact, it's likely that bottled water is not only uneconomical but also unsafe for human consumption.

We asked whether a gluten-free diet is good even if you aren't intolerant. Here's what we found

American consumers might have observed a growing movement in grocery stores these days. Now gluten-free options abound, when they barely had their own shelf space a few years ago. This growing movement toward eating healthier and marketing campaigns making gluten an enemy additive, makes some stop and wonder: is a gluten-free diet a better option for everyone?

Men at TWU: No Place to Doo

I’d like to share an observation, which I hope impacts readers as much as it did me: On the first floor of the CFO building, what used to be the male-only restroom was recently converted into a unisex bathroom. So now women elect to use the unisex bathroom either when the women’s is full, or simply for the luxury of privacy. The second floor isn’t much better, as the male-only restroom has only one stall. This means that men, on any given day, simply won’t have access to the facilities in CFO...

Vegetarians must attempt to adapt traditional campus food offerings to provide themselves with a poor substitute for a meal.
