Since the 2008 box office hit “Iron Man,” Marvel Studios has brought countless fan-favorite superheroes to the big screen as part of its shared universe, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Full of lovable characters, lively humor, and action-packed fight sequences, the MCU is now a household name among both comic book fans and moviegoers.

I don’t consider myself to be especially religious. I pray before eating, touch my grandparents’ feet to seek blessings every New Year, and listen to my parents describe the origin of traditions during our annual visit to the temple. Nonetheless, growing up, Diwali, or the Hindu festival of lights traditionally celebrated in India, has been (and continues to be) a holiday I wholeheartedly embrace. I love Diwali for all of the light it forges in my house, for the seven lit candles which sit perfectly aligned on my fireplace for 10 days, for the sweets that cover every square inch of my kitchen counter, for all of the shoes I trip over as guests pile into my home.

On Nov. 19, French president Emmanuel Macron asked the French Council of the Muslim Faith to sign a charter prohibiting Islam from being politicized and restricting “foreign interference” among Muslim groups. This charter intends to prevent radical Islamists from gaining traction; Macron’s request that French Muslims accept this contract of “republican values” follows a series of terror attacks committed by French Islamists.
The Daily Princetonian caught up over Zoom with first-year softball player Cate Bade, phoning in from her home in Texas over the Thanksgiving break. Bade, who is no stranger to bright lights and large crowds, discussed her experience playing high school softball in Texas, getting an apartment in Princeton with her teammates, and the one food that she can’t live without.
When we spoke, Liz Agatucci, a first-year on the varsity field hockey team, was living under a nearly month-long national quarantine. If that measure doesn’t sound familiar to U.S. readers, that’s because Agatucci, originally from Chapel Hill, N.C., spent her fall semester in Canterbury, England.
“Few … bend history,” Robert Kennedy said in 1966, “but each of us can work to change a small portion of the events, and in the total of these acts will be written the history of this generation.”
It’s finally over.

On this episode of The Orange Table, we sit down with Princeton Open Campus Coalition (POCC) President Rebekah Adams ’21 to discuss what it is like to be a Black female conservative on Princeton's campus.

A recent lawsuit alleging “massive election fraud” in Georgia and calling for the state’s election results to be disqualified cites Andrew Appel ’81, a professor of computer science at the University, as an “industry expert.” Appel, however, has pushed back against the suit’s use of his past testimony and affirmed the 2020 election’s technological security.
