Modern UI Reactions mixed, struggles in launch

Robert Beiler, Tech Editor I stand alone in an ocean of computer users. Well not completely alone, but definitely not in the majority. I love Windows 8. Insanity, I know.

“Winter Soldier” breathes new life into Marvel

Captain America squares off against a villain with a tortured soul Daniel Bell, Managing Editor Yet again readers it’s another Marvel movie review. This marks the third? Fourth?

On April 21, 2014 students and faculty of Harrisburg Area Community College’s (HACC) Lancaster campus celebrated Earth day. Students and faculty got the chance to check out earth friendly vendors, listen to speakers, and learn how local companies are doing their share to help our environment.

Among the speakers was renowned wildlife photographer, Chuck Rineer, who works closely with Speedwell’s Wolf Sanctuary. (465 Speedwell Forge Rd, Lititz, Pennsylvania)

Rineer brought volunteers from Speedwell along to encourage students and faculty to visit the sanctuary. A silent auction was held for a limited edition wildlife print and the proceeds benefited the Speedwell Wolf Sanctuary.

An explanation on how net neutrality seeks to preserve the internet

Robert Beiler, Tech Editor

Imagine a time where the internet is no longer the virtually unlimited use system it is today. Not the pay-per-minute internet of days gone by, but a new way of running the internet. Where you not only have to pay for your internet and for Netflix, but for a special “video watcher” add on, without which you couldn’t watch Netflix, or YouTube, or Hulu. You don’t use those sites? What about paying extra to use an email other than what your internet provider gives you? To listen to which ever music service you prefer?

Health and Wellness committee hosts health fair on campus

Shawn Reed, Editor-in-Chief

On April 30, 2014, Harrisburg Area Community College’s (HACC) Lancaster campus hosted a Health and Wellness Fair for students, faculty, and the community. The event, hosted by the Lancaster campus Wellness Committee, was hosted in the east building and featured many vendors from Lancaster, as well as health screenings, and education provided by HACC health care programs such as nursing and radiation technology programs.

Three years ago HACC held a Health and Wellness Fair which according to Holly Campadonico, administrative assistant and member of the Wellness Committee was a “phenomenal success.” People from the community as well as students and faculty attended despite the rainy conditions. Hosting an event the magnitude of the Health and Wellness fair takes a lot of planning according to Campadonico. Many services were offered to attendees such as blood pressure monitoring, bone density testing, and blood sugar monitoring.

Australian bred, Atlanta crafted, “The New Classic”

Daniel Bell, Managing Editor

On April 14, 2014 on of the albums I was most anticipating this year was released. “The New Classic” by Miss Amethyst Amelia Kelly better known by her stage name Iggy Azalea. Australian bred, Atlanta crafted, Iggy brings new life and a southern drawl to a seemingly generic mainstream hip-hop album.

In an interview with Hunger magazine Azalea reveals her stage name was crafted the same way most of us came up with funny fake names on the schoolyard, her first pet was a dog named Iggy and the street she grew up on was Azalea.

Hess was an instructor at Harrisburg Area Community College’s (HACC) Lancaster campus, as well as Millersville University, Immaculata University, and Penn State University, and served as the advisor to the Philosophy Club, as well as the coach for the Ethics Bowl team.

Hess received a B.A. in Philosophy, with a minor in Literature and Judeo-Christian Studies from Wheaton College, and his M.A. in Philosophy from Northern Illinois University.  The term “Unisense” was coined by Hess, and he wrote extensively on the topic of the interconnected nature of humanity.

I stand alone in an ocean of computer users. Well not completely alone, but definitely not in the majority. I love Windows 8. Insanity, I know. Between bad user and critical reviews, major user interface changes, and the fact that they’re taking time in their ads to focus on Google’s low powered Chrome books, things look somewhat bleak for the crew in Redmond, Washington. From the low end to the high end, Microsoft is facing stiff competition, and Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) students of all varieties certainly have opinions. Few of which are positive towards Microsoft’s newest operating system.

Captain America squares off against a villain with a tortured soul

Daniel Bell, Managing Editor

Yet again readers it’s another Marvel movie review. This marks the third? Fourth? But once again it is totally warranted. This movie has easily secured itself as one of the best films Marvel has put out to date. I have always liked Steve Rogers, “Captain America,” but he was never one of my favorite superheroes. This picture changed everything.

In the first film I felt for Captain America (Chris Evans) and his hopeless love story with Peggy (Hayley Atwell), and for his friendship with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan). In “The Winter Soldier” there are so many more personal connections made that really make you empathize with Steve. Most notably are his friendships with Natasha Romanov/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie).
