**In the land of Dallas where meat lies One Rib to rule them all, One Rib to satisfy them One Rib to bring them all and the Lodge fill them.** Now, anyone from a hungry office worker in downtown Dallas, to a wandering hipster in Deep Ellum, or to the barbecue enthusiast (basically anyone) who enjoys Dallas food knows or needs to...
Last Saturday afternoon, after finally catching up on his sleep and enjoying his late morning, Sam Dayton ’20 clicked on a video that had popped up in YouTube’s recommended section. The video was that of a rapper named Mac Miller – Sam wasn’t familiar. He watched the video anyways, mildly enjoyed it, and, more or less, forgot about it...
This is a conversation between me and a machine learning programmer. I find machine learning fascinating, because for the longest time, humans have been the most clever creatures on the planet.

Finding the needles in the haystack can be difficult, but I've listened through the tracks and albums of the summer, and I'm...
Crazy Rich Asians, one of the first American films with an all-Asian cast, has blown up to be one of the biggest blockbuster films of 2018. Released on August 16, this movie has been well-received by critics and the general public for its great cast, plot, and the hopeful future it brings to Asian-American actors. Never reading the novel,...
If you've ever played Super Smash Bros. and wondered, “Who the heck is Samus and what game she was from?” This is that game. While not the first game, it's certainly the best. The third installment in the long running, and recently revived, Metroid franchise, Super Metroid is the pinnacle of early 90’s video games and even helped create its...
