USG looks to develop ‘mobile blue light’ safety app

September 19, 2014
Ohio State’s latest student safety initiative doesn’t involve adding more blue lights around campus, and it isn’t something you’ll see in a police patrol car. It’s something that could be as easy to access as reaching into your pocket. Members of the Undergraduate Student Government are researching the possibility of a new OSU safety mobile app or “mobile blue light” as part of the organization’s effort to increase campus safety, said USG President Celia Wright, a fourth-year in public health. Yet, USG director of health and safety DaVonti’ Haynes, a third-year in public affairs, said the name of the new app and the name of its developing company are confidential.… Read more

Charlie Bear: Land of Dance denied liquor permit renewal

September 19, 2014
  Charlie Bear: Land of Dance is now a land of desolation, as the dance club has been denied renewal of its liquor permit. The bar, located at 2885 Olentangy River Road, was notified of the denial by the Ohio Division of Liquor Control earlier this month following a wave of violent crimes inside and outside the club in recent years. Some offenses included assault, fights, rape, public intoxication, drug use and public urination from a balcony. A man was shot and killed by police outside the bar last December after the man shot at another man following an argument inside the club. Calls to Gary Jones, who is representing… Read more

Jalin Marshall ‘moving up the ladder’

September 18, 2014
During spring camp, redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall’s status was largely in question after the Middletown, Ohio, native underwent offseason surgery. Three weeks into the season, those questions are becoming a thing of the past. Marshall has already made his impact on the Ohio State offense, as he scored his first career touchdown last week against the Kent State Golden Flashes in a 66-0 victory. Following his first-ever score wearing the Scarlet and Gray, Marshall said he was happy to put the trials and tribulations of the offseason behind him. “I’ve had some injuries and setbacks, but the journey is worth it,” Marshall said. “This is a great university and crowd… Read more

Ohio State field hockey set to begin Big Ten play

September 18, 2014
Fresh off an overtime victory against Ball State, the Ohio State field hockey team is set to welcome No. 16 Michigan State to Buckeye Varsity Field on Friday to kick off Big Ten play. For OSU (2-3), the path to a conference championship could start with playing well against the Spartans. “I think we all just have to realize how important these Big Ten games are,” junior forward Peanut Johnson said Wednesday. “The NCAA Tournament is super selective, so it’s imperative that we win the whole Big Ten. We can’t really have any off games.” The Spartans bring a 4-2 record into Friday’s contest after outlasting Kent State, 4-3, in… Read more

Opinion: Nicki Minaj makes her ‘Pinkprint,’ Foo Fighters father ‘dad rock’ in upcoming fall albums

September 18, 2014
If October is set to bring a wave of bugglegum pop, November will naturally follow with a cooler set of album releases. Read on to see what you can expect to hear the next few months as well as the songs that are already available. Foo Fighters — “Sonic Highways,” Nov. 10 Dave Grohl turned into a dad rocker almost overnight. Not that there is anything wrong with that — he has had one of the most prolific careers of any modern rock musician — but since when did he become the type of frontman to record an album in eight different cities and use landmarks from those cities as… Read more

Letter to the editor: Ohio State won’t move forward without Jonathan Waters

September 18, 2014
Letter to the editor: An open letter to President Michael Drake President Drake, I wrote you a letter back in July, after Jonathan Waters was wrongfully terminated from his position as director of marching and athletic bands. In response, I received a canned statement thanking me for my concern and effectively writing me off, like everyone else who wrote in to express their outrage over this situation. Despite the best efforts of major benefactors of Ohio State, concerned students, alumni and members of the media, you have continued to ignore anyone who disagrees with your firing of Mr. Waters. I can understand your reluctance to face people who might disagree… Read more

Letter to the editor: Marching band hurt by Ohio State’s mistakes

September 18, 2014
Letter to the editor: The administration at Ohio State wants to send the message that it will not tolerate sexual harassment. Good! Every fair-minded person finds this kind of behavior reprehensible: someone in a position of power mistreats another who is left powerless to defend against the attack and who is expected to be powerless to pursue recourse later. In fact, I find this behavior morally objectionable whether or not the aggressor’s motives or intentions are sexual in nature. How did the powerful at OSU decide to send their message? They made a big public splash by releasing a report of a ridiculously flawed “investigation” that painted thousands of former… Read more
