Calling all Brunonians: Let’s get ourselves a nap room

naos

We Brown students lead busy lives: we go from class to class, from activity to activity without a chance to get some quality rest in the middle of the day. Falling asleep in the library or in the Leung Family Gallery is neither socially acceptable nor practical, and sometimes, your own bed feels like it’s miles away. Guess what? The Boston Globe reported that a sophomore at Harvard started a petition for a nap room in which students could get some shut-eye between classes. This petition got 191 “yes” votes, and now the Harvard administration is actually considering making a nap room.

Do you know what this means? If we come together as a (tired) student body, we can make things happen. Brunonians: let’s get ourselves a nap room. Click here to fill out the petition.


Protest day on Thayer

Anyone out for their hangover cure bagel sandwich and coffee had plenty of signage to look at and fliers to refuse. At least three groups were demonstrating up and down the street — one for job creation, one to bring American troops home, and the most inflammatory one in the photo below.

Hipster protester poses with Hitler-Obama — Anne Simons / BlogDailyHerald

Great. Another Obama as Hitler poster. The Glass-Steagall reference is to a law that created the FDIC and introduced some banking reforms. The law was repealed in 1999, an action some politicians and economists believe served to worsen the economic crisis of 2007. Obama has spoken out against the act that repealed Glass-Steagall, so one wonders why a someone who wants to bring back the law would want to impeach Hitler-Obama. Ignorant protester or am I missing something?
