Luke Glendening (Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports) The upcoming NHL trade deadline is unlike one that we have seen in years past and yes, it’s because of Covid. With quarantine restrictions, Canadian teams were hesitant to trade with teams outside the North division due to quarantine laws. But just last week, the required quarantine time was shortened from 14 days to just 7 which will likely result in the trade market starting to heat up.  The Toronto Maple Leafs are one of those teams who always have a leg in the race with every key free agent target on the market and this year

Faith, Alfred. Faith. Somehow, someway…Zack Snyder did it. The eclectic director finally got to release his original vision for Justice League, and it was a lot better than anyone expected! Except for the diehard Snyder fanboys. You guys win this round. In the wake of Marvel’s smash hits at the box office, Warner Brothers put Snyder in charge of heading their own superhero saga. His films got mixed reviews, and during his post-production of Justice League, Snyder had to leave due to the death of his daughter. Studio executives scrambled to find Avengers director Joss Whedon, who finished the movie, cutting

Image Credit: Paolina Loseto The moment the city of Toronto went on lockdown in March 2020, my brain automatically went “get me out of here.” One of my biggest goals for the longest time, is to travel to as many places I can and COVID-19 has only furthered my dreams to jet off to anywhere and everywhere I’ve never been. Of course it isn’t safe yet to travel, but who says you can’t get ahead on planning (and saving) for an amazing getaway.  In other words, if you’re like me and you plan on traveling again once it’s safe to do

Top 5 Most Rewatchable Disney Movies

Comments Off on Top 5 Most Rewatchable Disney Movies
Let me just start by saying this is 100% opinionated and the list that I made was based off of the highest number of times that I have watched the films. This is in no means a list that shows the best movies but rather some films which I found very easy to re-watch. Another point to make is that I decided to lean towards the ‘disney princess’ movies rather than disney movies as a whole. So let’s get into it 😀 5. Hercules Who doesn’t love a little bit of Greek mythology? Not only is the movie itself great!

Image Credit: Pexels, 2016 Hey friends! The average full-time student at Ryerson will take around 40 courses from start to finish (5 per semester).  We all know that struggle of trying to fit our mandatory courses in whilst hoping that our electives are not too difficult or boring.  With this in mind, I thought I’d share a few courses that have actually been fun, creative and “easy A” selections in my opinion.  These are for the students that enjoy participation, creativity and team work rather than theoretical learning, papers, homework and exams.  Without further ado, let’s get started!

Flexing an outfit over Zoom has proven to be very difficult. It’s nothing like showing up to a mass lecture to show off some new fashions. That said, I don’t consider myself a fashion expert by any means. Walking through the Fashion hallway in Kerr Hall on my way to the RCC is always an experience. So, I figured I’d speak to some well-dressed friends of mine to prepare us all for the Summer and the (hopeful) return to in-person living. Please excuse my handwriting (Image Credit: Joe Mastromatteo) I met Jerico De Vera and Paul Choe in high school (shoutout Brebeuf).

The past year during this strange time of quarantine and social distancing, I, like I’m sure many others, have turned to streaming services for entertainment. But given it has now been a year of this pandemic, I am running out of things that interest me to watch. So lately I have been seeking out new books to read. My entire life I have always been drawn to fiction, in books, film and television. So as a child my favourite books were things such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Bone, and Geronimo Stilton. Then as I moved into my teenage

The 2017 Academy Awards made history for accidentally awarding La La Land Best Picture. What was meant to be a win for the Moonlight turned into a full-blown media phenomenon – news sites and journalists choosing to report the mishap, rather than the real history being made: Moonlight being the first fully Black cast and LGBTQ+ film to win Best Picture. Image Credit: Slashfilm Detailed in Jay-Z’s song “Moonlight”, this mix-up overshadowed the Moonlight in many ways, forcing it to share the attention it deserved with La La Land and forever associating it with said film. In many ways, this

Last week I had assignments to do and a thesis project to work on, but I ended up somehow spending one entire day watching WandaVision. Needless to say, I got hooked into watching Marvel Cinematic Universe films. I’ve watched all the films in the MCU films before, but some of them I haven’t watched in years and not in chronological order. So instead of focusing my energy on school work (I hope my professors don’t see this), I spent an entire week watching the entirety of the MCU in chronological order for a week; about 3-4 films a days. Yes

It can be hard to find new artists to listen to. After a while, we get sick of hearing the same music and the same artists. It took me a while to figure out a good routine with regards to finding new music, but I’m here to offer my advice. If you end up enjoying even one of the five artists I’m recommending, I’ll be happy! I decided to write about six artists who have a monthly listenership that is on the “lower end”. These definitely aren’t names you hear frequently (at least for now) but they are definitely worth

That being said, those days are incredibly busy. Add in having to care for a 6 month old puppy who’s energy seems to have amplified over the past couple of weeks. Needless to say, I’ve had to reconfigure my schedule to accommodate all of my new responsibilities.  The beginning of the week is very hectic. I’m

Comments Off on 78inc. (Part 3): Advice
The advice we are often told about rising in the digital industry is to build a profile, grow your network, and to jump at every opportunity. Which is great advice, but also a little redundant. What do you do if you don’t by chance run into a good connection, or don’t naturally have the skills to be incredibly social, or don’t know how to out yourself out there? Reena and Aashiq’s advice is out of the usual, maybe even unconventional, and can be taken in personally or professionally.  Regardless, it’s exactly what we all need to get to where we

Image Credit: Sean Kilpatrick/The Canadian Press The NHL’s new Scotiabank North Division has been one of the most exciting aspects of the 2020-2021 NHL season. The anticipation has been worth it and every game seems to be more entertaining than the last. There have been plenty of surprises over the course of the season but hey, that’s what makes hockey so much fun. Vancouver's Fall The Canucks were deemed to be one of the favourites to finish atop the North Division alongside the Toronto Maple Leafs but as we near the half-way point of the season, things are not going
