Tonight's Topic on Late Night Snack

Hey everyone! Tonight's subject on Late Night Snack will be pretty heavy (as if that is anything new). Today I had an emotional yet inspiring conversation with a few professors about diversity, social justice, and race issues. Since that is still weighing on my mind, tonight's segment will be based on how Ty and I feel about diversity on and off the campus, things we can do to increase diversity, and ways we can help racial issues. Tune in tonight at 11 p.m. to hear some more! (:

Dom La Nena on WNJR

Listen to Brazilian singer Dom La Nena - Soyo ( Six Degrees) on WNJR

Dominique Pinto (Dom La Nena)has learned to live in motion. Born in the coastal city of Porto Alegre, she spent her childhood split between her hometown and Paris, studying cello and piano. Her songs are very diverse; she sings only three of the 11 songs on her new album in Portuguese. There are five in Spanish and one each in French and English. Pinto's debut was in 2013, when she pieced together cello-centric approach and various melodic and rhythmic elements into songs of both beauty and depth. If you don’t understand Portuguese, the joy may seem more prominent. With a translation it skews the other way: “I have no home,” she sings. “I live in the tide.”  
You can listen to “Llegaré” by Dom La Nena on high Rotation coming up next week,

Gaming Den

Hey, Hey, Hey, Everybody,


This is a new blog I would like to start up called, you guessed it, Gaming Den, where I will be talking about video game related material. I have a show on Thursdays at 9pm where I, TheRavanator, play video game music, and I am finishing off the Xenoblade Chronicles album. Today I'll start off with a game I am currently playing, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire for the 3DS, and a strategy I came up with for playing against the in-game trainers.
From Bulbapedia, Trademarked by Nintendo

The Pokemon it involves is Chinchou. Being an water-electric type it is able to learn moves like Thunderbolt, Surf and the like. Most importantly it is able to learn Rain Dance and Thunder by TM. This means that if used in succession, Thunder will never miss unless the opponent uses Protect or Detect. One other thing about Chinchou is that one of its egg moves is Soak, this turns the target into a pure water-type. Then if one were to use Thunder it would be super-effective with same type attack bonus. To make things easier you could give Chinchou a damp rock to hold to extend the rain to 8 turns instead of 5 increasing the number of Soak, and Thunders you could do, ultimately dealing a lot crippling damage.


Tune in this Thursday at 9pm to catch some music from Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby.

What is Diversity?



What is diversity? Diversity is the state of being diverse. In other words, it is a range of different things. African American, Caucasian, Mexican, German, and many more races mixed together is what many people generally view diversity as. To me, diversity is far more than just race. It's the difference in the way people act, talk, walk, think, and much more. It's easy to say we are all diverse, but when it comes to diversity, it also includes the people you associate with as well. Are you diverse? ...
