Bhalla stated, “I am thrilled Hoboken is leading the way for the rest of the state to implement an additional mode of green transportation. Electric scooters will help residents easily travel around our city, reduce congestion on our roadways, and improve access to transit stations and business districts.”
France particularly, and the world generally, suffered a tragedy on Monday as the Cathedral of Notre Dame caught fire. Construction on the cathedral began in 1160 and has since become a defining symbol of both the Catholic Church and the French nation as a whole. While the damage seems to have been contained, the main spire of the Cathedral did collapse, and only in the coming days will we realize the total damage done by the conflagration.

diSiac Dance Company opened its spring show with dancers moving in semi-darkness to the understated beat of Jaden Smith’s “Ghost.” The production played off of the strength of simplicity, beginning with marketing that got straight to the point about how good the group really is: “drip” was this season’s theme. No other narrative or overarching topic was needed to bind together the whole production as it sped by.

I immediately thought about the weeks following my Princeton acceptance when I also felt inadequate and worried that admissions made a mistake by accepting me.
Cecile Richards, the former president of Planned Parenthood, recently spoke at the University about her newly published memoir. I, along with hundreds of students and community members, jumped at the opportunity to listen to her speak.

I’m obsessed with spicy foods. I’ve conquered the Blazin’ Wings challenge multiple times, have devoured a raw ghost pepper, love to brag about my vast collection of hot sauces, and am an avid fan of Hot Ones, a YouTube talk show that forces celebrities to eat progressively hotter wings while answering your typical talk show questions.
