(10/12/14 10:41pm)

Sixty student leaders of clubs, sports teams and Greek organizations discussed sexual violence on campus in Collis Common Ground on Saturday as part of Student Assembly’s “It’s On Us” campaign.

Although last year’s NSA scandal has largely faded from the news, the U.S. government’s strong-arming of technology companies that have million of users’ private information has not ended. Last December, Facebook, Microsoft and Google joined other technology companies in lobbying President Barack Obama to reform government surveillance practices.

Distrust spouses, neighbors in ‘Gone Girl’

David Fincher’s famous works center around the psychologically perverse, presenting the warpath left behind not by villains donning capes or masks, but by those hiding among us. John Doe (“Se7en” (1995)), Tyler Durden (“Fight Club” (1999)) and the Zodiac killer (“Zodiac” (2007)) are all highly calculating, sadistic and nearly invisible murderers who nihilistically revel in the ensuing chaos. Fincher’s “Gone Girl” (2014) adds another volume to his oeuvre of highly successful thrillers, based off the hit 2012 novel by Gillian Flynn, who also wrote the film’s screenplay. Flynn altered the ending to compel the book’s fans to the theater. I haven’t read the book, which left me blissfully unaware of comparisons and fully gripped by the film.
