Facebook friend posted a message on Thursday about Roosh V. and the ill-fated Return of Kings meet-up event. In it, he said that, while the event was canceled, men who had planned to participate were instead going to ”...’pick up’ (read: coerce and rape) women at nearby bars.” I asked the poster, who thinks of himself as an ally for women, for his source on the information, and instead of supplying a link or a name, he became defensive and ultimately he deleted my comments. Later that same day, the U.K. tabloid website Daily Mail published an article with the headline “Not so cool now! Pro-rape pick-up artist pictured in a sweat-stained T-shirt at the door of his mother’s home (where he lives in the BASEMENT!).” The included photo shows the self-identified men’s rights activist speaking to police at his door wearing – gasp – a T-shirt and shorts. No mention was made of how they had determined he lived in his mother’s basement.

Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series won’t be out until sometime next year. But now that the semester is ending, what’s a reader to do? For your holiday break enjoyment, the Daily Lobo presents three underrated books series, all of which are totally complete, absolutely amazing and easily finished before the spring semester begins.
Did you know UNM is a terrorist-friendly school? It is because we have an active Students for Justice in Palestine chapter, and because ASUNM passed an anti-Islamophobia resolution last year. So says David Horowitz, editor-in-chief of FrontPage Magazine and founder of Students for Academic Freedom. Because popular opinion says that supporting Palestine is anti-Semitic.
For 15 years, every online class taken at UNM has a delivery fee of $100. But after Friday’s Board of Regents meeting, that fee may change — and not just for students taking online courses. Vice Provost of Extended Learning Monica Orozco Obando and Associate Vice President of the Office of Planning, Budget and Analysis Andrew Cullen will propose an end to the delivery fee for all online classes at UNM. What would replace it is a mandatory fee that all students would pay each semester, regardless of their enrollment in online courses.
Meet Liliana. She likes helping people, sarcasm and killing bad guys. She's also around 230 years old. Liliana and I have spent a lot of time together in the last few days, exploring the world of “Fallout 4.” That's one of the things I like most about the newest edition of Bethesda's “Fallout” franchise: the highly customizable avatars. I spent about an hour getting Liliana's look and stats just right.

It’s a long-standing image: A guy, usually pale, usually in glasses and a button-up shirt. He spends his days in a science lab and his nights playing games with similar-looking friends. While most people would immediately recognize this as a description of a geek, the reality of who fits the geek mold is changing.
