The New HQ

The latest and greatest trivia game to come to mobile phones right now

The latest and greatest in the app world, known as HQ and built by the founder of Vine, I discovered myself yesterday through a friend. If you haven't heard of this, it's basically Trivia Crack but much better and much more difficult.

If you don't know what Trivia Crack is, it was a popular app about 2 years ago that allowed you to compete against your friends asking different trivia questions, as well as creating your own. In order to play HQ, all you have to do is register a username and log on twice a day, once at 3 p.m. and once at 9 p.m., and join roughly 200,000 other users from around the world for an online, live game show.

The object of the game is to answer 12 questions in a row correctly, with 10 seconds per question, in order to win the cash prize. If you answer a question incorrectly, you're automatically eliminated from that specific game.

Roughly, the cash prize has been $1,000 dollars in the past few days but there is a catch to it. You don't win the full grand yourself and it's instead split between all the winners of that round. So really the prize is an average around $5-$10, but still its basically free money based on your own knowledge so you really can't lose anything by playing.

Personally, I find this game really entertaining and different because it is an actual live game show with a host, which I have never heard of before. A lot of my friends have been playing, and it's quickly catching fire through Syracuse's campus and around the world more and more every day.

Although there have been complaints about the lag the app has been experiencing for some people, it has to be remembered that it is brand new and being updated constantly by the 'HQ Engineers' of the company. It will most likely be a trend that fades soon, but I'd highly suggest playing it while it's still here!

Good Luck!

11 Reasons Why You Should Take An Online Class

It's learning from the comfort of your own bed.


I was uneasy about taking my first online class this semester, but it's already week two and I really like it. I feel like I am learning even though I'm not in a classroom. Here are 11 more reasons why you should take an online class at least once in college.

1. It's literally online

All you need a laptop and Internet connection and you are good to go.

2. You don't have to leave your bed

Because you don't need to go anywhere.

3. You can Google things if you need help on anything

It's magical.

4. It can be less work than a normal class

"Can" is the keyword but usually it's a lot lighter workload and easier to handle.

5. You can do it on your own time

You can do your assignments whenever you want, just beware of deadlines.

6. Your teacher is only an email away

And is usually pretty good at getting back to you since it is the only form of contact.

7. You can see your grades right away

If you're lucky enough to have assignments that are automatically graded.

8. You can complete assignments with friends

I think that is the best part of online classes.

9. Your exams and quizzes are online

Which might make them less stressful.

10 There's no absences

So you won't miss anything.

11. It's more organized

Everything is laid out in front of you so you don't miss assignments.
