Toni Zhou | Penn needs to do more to get Lunar New Year Toner's Groaner | Penn should do more to recognize the minority of students who celebrate cultural holidays like the Lunar New Year. Being an international student since high school, I celebrated the Lunar New Year without my family for the fifth year in a row. Like all other Quakers celebrating this holiday, I was trapped on campus, embraced by a bizarre and complicated sense of jubilation, homesickness, and stress. Unlike Western holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving, which stretch over longer pauses and give people ample time to go home to celebrate with their families, Lunar New Year can be a uniquely emotional experience for Penn's Asian community . The Lunar New Year marks the turning point in the lunar calendar and is a holiday widely celebrated in East and Southeast Asia. Although different families may have different traditions, the underlying theme is reunion with loved ones. Unlike most western holidays, where it is customary but not necessary to celebrate with the entire extended family, the most important aspect of the Lunar New Year is that people return home reunited with their families. No matter where they are, millions of people travel every year in the harsh winter, sometimes thousands of miles, to see their family, if only for one night. With Lunar New Year's Eve falling on a Monday this year, even most domestic students couldn't make travel plans to celebrate with their families. However, many students managed to adapt to the situation. College first-grader Nicole Zhao recalled her experience of the holidays, noting that "thankfully I was still able to talk to my family and see their faces now that video calling is available in this day and age." For many Asian students, this experience of separation, along with other shared traditions, can be a powerful bonding tool that brings community closer. But just as the physical separation of close family members during the pandemic testifies to the limits to which the internet can replace physical interaction, celebrating a cultural holiday remotely with family will always be different than celebrating in person. Nonetheless, students celebrating the Lunar New Year organize events with other members of their community during this festive period. Alan Zhang, a first-grader at the college, recalled his experience, describing, "For the first time ever, I spent [the Lunar New Year] with friends on campus, away from my family members, eating stew." Self-organized celebrations like a hot dinner were on common on campus. And celebrating with people coming from different cultures is important for the Asian community itself to recognize the Lunar New Year as a holiday celebrated by many different communities, rather than a homogeneous one. SEE MORE BY TONY ZHOU: For many students, celebrating the Lunar New Year on campus seems odd because it's only recognized by the few in the Asian community who celebrate it. It is surprising that the university itself has never sent out a message or announcement recognizing the holiday. College first-grader Joanna Xiang was overwhelmed by the university's lack of recognition, stating, "I'm quite disappointed that the school really didn't put a lot of effort into promoting the cultural holiday." While certain Asian advocacy groups last week hosted events like Lion dance performances in several dining halls promoted the holiday, Penn's decision to remain silent during this holiday or other cultural holidays undermines the mission of cultural inclusivity and makes minority students feel more likely to be alienated. Ideally, like any major holiday, celebrating the Lunar New Year means having fun and not thinking about the next half term or project that's coming up the following week. Many students celebrating the holiday experience struggle to complete their homework during Lunar New Year week, making the experience stressful. While some other universities have professors offering deadline extensions for students celebrating Lunar New Year, most Penn students in the Asian community had to work through their work for the next day of school, disrupting preparations for the holiday. Following Congresswoman Grace Meng's recent bill to make the Lunar New Year a federal holiday, Penn should at a minimum offer housing to students whose celebrations interfere with their academic work, and such action may be the first step in earning Penn's respect to show people's observance of this holiday. The Lunar New Year is a special occasion that is central to many Asian students at Penn. But it's important to realize that unlike traditional American holidays, many students had to celebrate this holiday while attending school. Penn needs to take more responsibility for promoting holidays like the Lunar New Year as part of its mission of inclusion. TONY ZHOU is a college freshman from Zhejiang, China.

Here you can finally play Elden Ring in the United States

"Elden Ring," the long-awaited collaboration between FromSoftware and George R.R. Martin, will be released this week. Here's when it will unlock in the US (Author: Gardener)

Elden RingAfter years of waiting, the launch of Elden Ring is just around the corner and we now have a confirmed release time for the highly anticipated role-playing game (RPG). Developed by FromSoftware (the team behind the notoriously punitive Dark Souls franchise), Elden Ring was first announced at E3 2019. With creative input from Game of Thrones writer George R. There weren't any specific details about its story or its mechanics, and were there any in-game footage to reference. There was a long period of radio silence following this momentous reveal, and we didn't hear anything tangible about Elden Ring development for several years. That was until the project made a triumphant (if overdue) comeback at Summer Game Fest in 2021. While retaining much of the core gameplay of Dark Souls - including its emphasis on stamina bar management, the online summoning feature, and the general combat system (not to mention it even recycles a few animations from older games) - it's also crucially evolved further developed on the formula. For example, Elden Ring introduces horseback exploration and mounted combat into the mix. Differences aside, Elden Ring is guaranteed to still offer that signature FromSoftware challenge that we've all developed a love-hate relationship with by now. With that in mind, you'll have to invest a ton of hours to master this game and learn its various intricacies. Luckily, you can get off to a rough start with this grind if you preload Elden Ring early before launch. Publisher Bandai Namco has unveiled a graphic on Twitter detailing when the Elden Ring will be released in each global territory. While the game is technically scheduled for release on Friday February 25th, some players will be able to get it a bit earlier. The console version of Elden Ring unlocks at midnight on Friday, regardless of where you live. This means some countries will inevitably get it a bit earlier than others, as time zone differences mean Australia and Europe reach 12am ahead of North America. If you're on Xbox, you can trick the system by setting your computer's internal clock to use New Zealand Daylight Saving Time. For those in ET zones, you can then arrive after midnight 18 hours earlier than necessary. You can perform a similar cheat on PlayStation, but you'll need to set up a New Zealand PSN account for this to work. While the console version of Elden Ring unlocks at midnight local time, the launch of the PC edition is synchronized globally. Setting your computer's clock doesn't make a difference, although you'll still get the game early since it comes out at 11pm on PC. UTC on Thursday February 24th. To be clear, Elden Ring is unlocking in the United States at this point: you can preload Elden Ring so it's ready to play as soon as it unlocks in your designated time zone. For PC and PlayStation owners, the option to do so will be available 48 hours before the game's official release. Here's where to preload Elden Ring in the US:

Snoop Dogg celebrates 4-20 at Lincoln

What better way to celebrate 4-20 than with a Snoop Dogg concert? That's what's going to happen when the iconic weed-loving rapper joins the ranks of rising country star Koe Wetzel (Author: Gardener)

LincolnSkip to main contentSkip to main content Enjoy unlimited items at one of our lowest prices ever. You have permission to edit this article. What better way to celebrate 4-20 than with a Snoop Dogg concert? That's what will happen when the iconic weed-loving rapper is joined by rising country star Koe Wetzel on April 20 at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The show, just one of two announced for the pairing, was put together by Mammoth Inc., the Lawrence, Kansas promoter who books shows at the Pinewood Bowl and sometimes the Arena. "They're the ones who brought us Cardi B," Lorenz said. “They worked with the management of Snoop and put this together. The idea was to do a 4-20 event and use the synergy of the Super Bowl halftime show.” During the Feb. 13 show, Snoop Dogg started with a PG version of his hit song “The Next Episode” and then closed dr Dre, the producer who launched Snoop's career in the early '90s, on "California Love" and at the end of the 15-minute show with Dre, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar for "Still DRE" Considered one of the best Super Bowl halftime shows of all time, this show aimed squarely at Generation X, the 40- to 55-year-old audience who embraced Snoop Doggy Dogg's "Doggystyle" and the hits "Gin and Juice." and "Who I Am (What's My Name?)" and made him the biggest star of West Coast hip-hop in the early '90s. The 4-20 show will be Snoop Dogg's third Lincoln appearance. In 2001 the Pershing Auditorium was sold out. But when he returned three years later, the show was moved to the Pershing basement as Snoop's popularity had plummeted. However, over the past decade, Snoop Dogg has regained prominence for his laconic notoriety, movies, TV shows, and commercials like his music. "He really came back," Lorenz said. "Now maybe people know more about him from his Corona commercials and as Martha Stewart's sidekick. But his audience has come back, especially after the Super Bowl.” Snoop Dogg is doing so well now, Lorenz said, that the BOK Center in Tulsa put a second show up for sale when his first announced concert there sold out. Koe Wetzel is among the hottest new country artists. Known for mixing rock, even some grunge, with his country, the Texas-born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has become a touring phenomenon, selling more than 120,000 tickets in COVID-stricken 2021, enough, to propel him to the top of Pollstar's worldwide touring list for the second year in a row. Tickets for the Lincoln show range from $45 to $125 with all seats reserved. Tickets go on public sale Friday at 10:00 a.m. at ticketmaster.com.

Give your diet a spring clean with Tuesday Foods

The basalt-based startup delivers the plant-based lifestyle to your doorstep. (Author: Gardener)

TuesdayInside the reusable, eco-friendly, recycled paper tote bag was a complete 5 Day Fall Reset cleaning from Good Clean Food Delivered, the basalt-based meal service (recently rebranded Tuesday Foods). When I felt the effects of "languishing" caused by the pandemic — a term the New York Times later defined as "a feeling of stagnation and emptiness" — I didn't eat as healthily or stay as active as I normally would do, and was looking for something that could inspire me to make a big shift. My diet has never been restrictive, but with a sudden boom in the plant-based lifestyle and all the benefits that come with it, a cleanse was the perfect way to start a change. Tuesday Foods' easy-to-follow directions and on-call service included in its signature glass container package promise, "In just three days, you'll start feeling more energy, less bloating, less cravings, more radiant skin, stable moods, and rejuvenated sleep." , clearer thinking and increased motivation.” While day three was the hardest for my system (and for most participants), by day four I was won over. Mistakenly believing that cleanses were too extreme for my hungry self, Tuesday Foods has dedicated itself to nutrition, offering a full day of nourishment anchored with a matcha latte, a superfood smoothie, a detox salad and a filling soup - with Lots of snacks to keep you full in between, like moisturizing raw vegetables, nut milks, mineral broths and hearty tahini bars. After completing my cleanse, I was not only proud of the accomplishment, but also lighter and more radiant overall (my waistline and skin also got a noticeable boost). Tuesday Foods also makes it easy to stay on track with the foundation of its business in the form of plant-based prepared meals that are delivered every Tuesday and stay fresh through Saturday. Founded in 2019 by certified health coach and vegan chef Kelly Hollins and Lisa Cohen, an accredited nutritionist and weight loss expert, Tuesday Foods has experienced explosive growth over the past year. "We started with a handful of (our collective) clients and we will never know what our path would have been without the pandemic," Cohen said in a phone interview earlier this month. "It brought so many things to the fore... people were afraid to go to the grocery store... they were more interested in their health and immune system support... and they stopped eating out." So when you're stuck at home and have to cook three meals a day for yourself or for your family, that got really difficult. The two longtime locals and friends, who first met in the mid-2000s while taking yoga classes with Aaron King, have embraced a once-down-to-earth business idea — cooking healthy meals and cleaning regimens in their own kitchens, all in Cohen's Garage packing and spitting deliveries in the Roaring Fork Valley - is now a 10 person team with a commercial kitchen in Willits and a satellite operation in Boulder to serve Front Range customers. Tuesday Foods was originally based on a custom, regular cleaning schedule—with a blueprint for clean eating in between. [Lisa and I] love doing cleanses and really crave it, but there really wasn't anything we wanted to buy, so we created our own," Hollins said. “There is no decision making – it is all planned. You don't have to think about what you're going to cook or buy... it's already done for you. "Whether you eat with us each week, which actually cleans itself, or follow a program, we provide your body with all the nutrients it needs to support your gut microbiome," added Cohen. “We know it's important to eat a plant-based diet, but variety matters. Research recommends eating at least 30 different plant-based foods per week, and our rotating menus can serve up to 100 different plants in one shipment alone. Instead of counting calories, we measure protein, fat, and carbs to ensure a balanced diet of good, clean foods.” With a cleanse under my now-loose belt, I've been leaning towards Tuesday Foods for the past three months — alternating with weekly deliveries and utilizing the many resources available on his DIY site.

Also, highlights from the final night of the regular season for the Central Coast Section teams. (Author: Gardener)

the final nightWith 22 wins in 26 games during the regular season, Moreau Catholic wasn't expecting to see a five next to his name when the North Coast Section playoff brackets came out on Sunday. "We have motivation in the locker room," said coach Frank Knight after the fifth-seeded Mariners rolled past Castro Valley 70-33 past No. 12 at home in Hayward on Tuesday night in the first round of the Division I playoffs. “The team feels like they are not fivers. They're taking it personally.” Moreau held Castro Valley to four points in the first quarter and five in the second to end the game at halftime. Trey Knight had 19 points and seven steals and Kellen Hampton added 15 points and six rebounds to lead the Mariners. "We're starting to click," Knight said. We are excited.

There were three games in which both teams were from EBAL - two boys, one girl - and in all three cases the lower seedling was victorious.

On the girls' side, No. 12 Dublin rolled past fifth-seeded Granada 51-32. Other surprises Tuesday included No. 12 set Hayward, who managed Pinole Valley 63-54, and No. 11 Encinal, who surprised No. 6 Piner 48-44 in two Division III games.

After several teasers were dropped on yesterday's episode of Monday Night Raw, fans are certain that Cody Rhodes will return to WWE. After that, reports suggested Rhodes was in talks with WWE about a surprise return to the company, which many believe will happen ahead of WrestleMania in April. And now, after yesterday's episode of WWE Raw, fans are more confident than ever that Cody will be back working for Vince McMahon. Several teases were dropped on yesterday's episode of WWE Raw, suggesting that Cody will be coming to WWE sooner rather than later. However, The Miz teased that it would be Cody before introducing Logan to Paul, saying his partner is "smart" and comes from a "family of fighters" who all line up with Rhodes. For those who don't know, Cody was briefly referred to as "Dashing" Cody Rhodes during his run with WWE that ended in 2016. That wasn't the only reference to Cody Rhodes on the show, as WWE Hall of Famer Edge also alluded to the former AEW executive during his promo on the show. While urging members of the WWE roster to stand before a WrestleMania match, Edge said he wanted to stand up to someone who was "undeniable." During his debut year with AEW, Cody spoke of going from "undesirable to undeniable," leading many people to think that Edge's line during his promo was a nod to the former WWE star. That's not all though, as Edge also alluded to Damian Priest, AJ Styles and Finn Balor during his promo on yesterday's show.

The Beast also learned that Bobby Lashley is set to get his championship rematch that night if he's able to clear the concussion protocol, but Heyman assured Lesnar he'll make sure there's a championship opponent in the lineup, whatever what is happening.

Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens fight their way to the title match

WWE Raw scores, grades as Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens battle it out in a huge title match, Logan Paul attacks Rey Mysterio and more. (Author: Gardener)

Seth RollinsWWE Superstars Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens earned a shot at the Raw Tag Team Championships after a great Monday night Main Event. This week's show ended with the duo enjoying a massive win over Randy Orton and Riddle as they will now join RK-Bro themselves in a triple threat with challengers Alpha Academy for the gold. Earlier in the night, KO and the Visionary played up their chance, noting that if they win the titles in two weeks, they could defend them at WrestleMania 38 - or even face SmackDown Champions The Usos. In a nice move, Owens kept firing in Dallas, Texas amid rumors of a huge dream match with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. They'll face tough challengers, however, with Alpha Academy gaining some momentum in the opening match of the night as Chad Gable and Otis defeat The Street Profits together. All four men did a good job while Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins continue to make an exciting duo, but it's true that Alpha Academy took the win here. They've already earned a title fight against RK-Bro after a string of recent academic challenges, but they won't get a direct tag match against Owens and Rollins has been included in the fight. The latter pair did so in a fantastic main event against Riddle and Orton, each contributing to an exciting fight that ended with a turnbuckle bomb, stunner, and stomp in quick succession being enough to knock out the Original Bro for a three count. The show began with newly-crowned WWE Champion Brock Lesnar coming out to celebrate his big win at Elimination Chamber over the weekend, in which he dominated AJ Styles, Riddle, Seth Rollins and Austin Theory to victory after Bobby Lashley mid was removed in the match to injuries. The Beast was quickly interrupted by Paul Heyman, who set up Roman Reigns ahead of the pair's title-versus-title match at WrestleMania 38 while revealing that Lesnar would be defending his title at the Garden next month. Tommaso Ciampa later teamed with a returning Finn Balor to defeat the Dirty Dawgs, continuing Ciampa's NXT 2.0 feud with Dolph Ziggler.

On this week's episode of Miz TV, the host railed against Rey Mysterio and his win at Elimination Chamber, which came after his son Dominik got involved. After some back-and-forth with the father/son duo at the mic, Miz teased his new tag team partner - brilliantly calling him "dashy" and a member of a struggling family, in reference to Cody Rhodes - before rolling out Logan Paul. with the villains beating the fan favorites to stand tall with a massive match set for WrestleMania 38. In a similarly short - but very hilarious - match, Damian Priest beat Shelton Benjamin in a non-title match before issuing an open challenge for his United State Championship, which Finn Balor planned to accept for next week. The champion stayed on commenting as Belair defeated Doudrop in another strong match between the two, showing off her incredible strength with the K. Edge came out to give WrestleMania an open challenge and adroitly recalled his memories of The Show of Shows as referring to AJ Styles, Cody Rhodes and Damian Priest when he challenged someone to step up. The Phenomenal One has made no secret of his desire to take on the Rated R superstar, and the idea of ​​Styles and Edge clashing is a dream match for fans.

Edge returns to WWE Raw and releases Open Challenge for WrestleMania 38

The Hall of Famer gives the gauntlet to someone who levels up, "lives forever" and fights them. (Author: Gardener)

WWE RawThe Hall of Famer gives the gauntlet to someone who levels up, "lives forever" and fights them. The Hall of Famer gives the gauntlet to someone who levels up, "lives forever" and fights them. Edge returned to Raw Monday night for the first time since Royal Rumble, and presented WrestleMania 38 with an unusual challenge. Edge said he needed WrestleMania, but Mania needed him too.
