President Michael Drake focuses on positives in 1st university address

October 31, 2014
Ohio State needs to place a greater focus on teaching, while continuing its goal of research eminence, President Michael Drake said in his first address to University Senate on Thursday. The university is a “modern land-grant institution that’s also a doorway to the world,” he said. “We teach for Ohio, but we do research for the world.” As examples of OSU’s worldwide presence, Drake noted the university’s Global Gateway offices around the world, such as the one in São Paolo that opened Sept. 13.  Drake strayed from announcing anything bold for OSU’s future and he avoided taking up any controversial stances. Instead, the president used the forum to highlight the… Read more

Podcast: Fantasy Doctors week 9

October 29, 2014
The Fantasy Doctors is a little freestyle this week. Instead of the normal format of jackpot, roulette, and then match-ups of the week, they just let the numbers and performances do the talking this week. It was a monster week of fantasy football in Week 8. All the way from Ben Roethlisberger to Tom Brady to Arian Foster to Emmanuel Sanders to the Miami Dolphins defense. The list goes on of big performances this week, and the Fantasy Doctors have analyzed those performances instead of the match-ups. On top of that change, they’ve focused on their own fantasy teams, as both doctors fantasy lifeline is losing their heartbeats. Another loss… Read more

Review: Chance the Rapper tells his story to Ohio State students in energetic concert

October 28, 2014
Chants broke out for Chance the Rapper at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion. The rapper, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, performed Monday evening in a concert sponsored by the Ohio Union Activities Board. Tickets to the concert were free for Columbus campus students with a valid BuckID. The performance was sold-out, with more than 2,000 OSU students in attendance. Leading up to the concert, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the audience. The 21-year-old rapper isn’t quite a household name. His biggest claim to mainstream success is arguably his featured verse on the Justin Bieber single, “Confident.” I figured that those who were less familiar with the artist would… Read more

Witches, magic, wolves: Damn the Witch Siren’s imaginative style makes for mystical electro-pop

October 27, 2014
In an attempt to shine light on local music, The Lantern’s “Columbus’ Own” is a weekly series that will profile a new Columbus band every week. There’s nothing like a fresh start, especially when it’s all made up. Columbus electro-pop two-piece Damn the Witch Siren was built on equivalent pillars of imagination, armed with alter egos and a desire to collapse every portion of the arts into one magnificent music project. “I came up with Bobbi Kitten ­­— I wanted something androgynous but feisty and cute, and my friends always called me ‘kitten’ – so I liked ‘Bobbi,’” vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Krista Botjer explained of her stage name. “It’s fierce-sounding.”… Read more

Students looking to stretch their stomachs, but not necessarily their wallets, might get the chance, as High Street is set to get a new grilled cheese and tomato soup shop in the wake of two restaurants closing. Cincinnati-based Tom + Chee is slated to open its doors Nov. 14 at 1980 A. N. High Street, and it hopes to bring students tasty, affordable and natural comfort food, an owner said. ”Grilled cheese caters well to the student population and we’ve got healthy choices,” said Ron Freeman, owner of the upcoming Tom + Chee campus location. Freeman — who also owns the two other Central Ohio Tom + Chee locations in… Read more

Ohio State men’s soccer trounces Rutgers, 4-1

October 26, 2014
In its final homestand of the regular season, things got off to a quick start for the Ohio State men’s soccer team. OSU (7-5-3, 4-2-0) won its third straight with a blowout of Rutgers (5-9-1, 1-5-1), 4-1, in the first-ever matchup between the two schools. Sophomore forward Danny Jensen scored his second goal of the season with a header just 36 seconds into the game. He took a high pass sent from the corner by senior midfielder Max Moller and put it high into the net. Then, in the second half, Jensen wasted even less time before adding his second goal of the night – that one coming 29 seconds… Read more

Ohio State women’s soccer splits weekend matchups

October 26, 2014
While trying to keep its hopes of making the Big Ten Tournament alive, the Ohio State women’s soccer team fell to Iowa, but bounced back against Nebraska. The Buckeyes (6-9-3, 3-6-3) and Cornhuskers (7-9-2, 3-7-2) played to a scoreless first half on Sunday before OSU broke through with three goals in the second. Before the barrage of goals, OSU entered halftime with a 4-1 lead in shots and 2-1 lead in shots on goal. Coach Lori Walker said the team contained the Cornhuskers’ offense through teamwork. “Everything for us recently has just been about taking care of ourselves and not giving away opportunities for other teams to capitalize on,” Walker… Read more
