MTV Guy Code Review

By Jeramie L Bizzle   @jeramiebizzle87

For years, Men and women questioned each other about what are they thinking and what they want from one another, but thanks to MTV and their latest show, at least one of the questions will be answered. Guy Code is a show that give viewers insight into your average male mind and expose things that a guy may be thinking and simply why they do what they do. Some of the topics discussed on the show include “One Night Stand” rules, Hygiene and even rules on farting (yes there is a rule for that too). Although it is a comedy, they discuss important topics as well as financial budgeting and rules of dating.

When you see the initials MTV, you automatically think Jersey Shore and you automatically think that the show is stupid, but in reality, this show is beneficial to women who are looking to getting back into the dating game themselves. This help show you what not to do and what you might want to do if you want to keep the one you are with. The show premiered during spring break and that season covered the rules of the spring, now in it’s second season and this one promises to cover the basics of the day to day that all guys deal with.

If you are interested in seeing what the show has to offer or to have a good laugh for the day, head over to MTV.com and watch clips and sneak peeks of the past episodes. Season 2 begins Tuesday July 17 at 9 pm.

The Farm Update

By Chris Weber
Despite the severe drought and multiple infestations of insects, my first season of organic farming is going well so far.
I have been busy planting, weeding and harvesting, but most importantly, learning everything that goes into being an organic farmer. I learn something new everyday, (most days I learn many things).
One of my most important goals for this season is building up a commercial seed stock. A large stock of seed is necessary to fill an entire acre. I would estimate that I have used about 30% of the land that is available to me. I am fortunate to be able to gather seed from many things that previous farmers have planted on the field. Currently I have saved a large seed stock of garlic, leeks and mustard greens. I am planting half of the leek and mustard green seeds now with the hope that they overwinter as well as they did last year. The remaining seeds will be planted in the spring. The garlic cloves and bulbils will be planted a week or two before the ground freezes. My plan is to continue saving seeds from most of what I have growing. This will save money and is also much more sustainable than buying seeds every spring.
I will share more about how I am trying to practice sustainable farming, how I am surviving the drought and how I am fighting pests organically.

Clavio’s Takes Over Triton Cafeteria

By Jeramie L Bizzle   @jeramiebizzle87

Students for the past few years always complained about the food in the cafeteria and the high prices. Students all traveled across the street to the famous local eatery Clavio’s to better suit their taste buds and their budgets. Now they won’t have to travel that far for the food is now taking over F.S.I.

With the restaurant coming to the school, they will be bringing their menu, fast and friendly service to the students. But not to worry, the restaurant will still keep its current location on fifth avenue. Students and staff are beginning to rejoice over the news about the change in the food service:

“I feel good about them, we eat there enough already” – Christopher Smith, Student Life

“They are, seriously, I think it’s fantastic” – Jeff Brown, Student

Clavio’s serves a variety of fast food and Italian specialties including cheeseburgers, salads, Connolly’s, and much more. Here at Triton we thank Clavio’s for keeping us full for a years and we welcome them with open arms. Although they have began serving the students in the cafe, you can still visit their current location at 1908 5thAvenue in River Grove, IL. Be sure to visit their website for coupons and catering information. Because as they say and many can agree, “it’s not fast food, it’s good food fast!!!”
