Uber is a popular ride-sharing company that connects thousands of users around with drivers that provide inexpensive and convenient rides anywhere. Since its launch in 2014, the ride-sharing service has been placed under scrutiny. At first, people feared that Uber would cause traditional companies to go out of business. Uber received large amounts of media scrutiny for every small mistake a driver made, and Uber is not accessible in many major attractions and airports across the United States. Soon after, a class action law suit was brought against Uber for denying riders with service dogs access to their vehicles, which is in violation of the Americans With Disabilities act. Even though this has brought forth major improvements for passengers with service animals who wish to use Uber, it is important to note that many taxi companies around the United States are still denying their services to people with service animals.

On January 29, numerous protests against President Trump’s executive Order On Immigration took place at numerous airports across the nation. At New York’s JFK airport, taxi companies who service the airport suspended the service. Drivers for these companies were perdominently Muslim, and they chose to stand in solidarity with Muslims who had left the United States and could not return for ninety days. Uber still served the John F Kennedy International Airport, but it lowered its fairs in the location of the airport. This action angered millions of Uber users across the United States. Many Uber drivers in the area of the JFK airport are Muslim, and many who were abroad would not be able to return to work and provide for their families for the three months that this order would be active. Since the past events, millions of Uber users have deleted their accounts and told the company why they did so. many people even posted their screen shots on Twitter with the hashtag Delete Uber. People felt that Uber’s CEO was siding with President Trump, even though he is finding a way to compensate his partners who are currently stranded abroad.

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
