The two months are meant for data collection to see how viable the market is for 3-D printing… Read more

Study: Millennials drive less, favor alternate transportation

January 25, 2015
More millennials have been delaying getting their driver’s license compared to previous generations, opting to use alternate transportation methods, and a new transportation and parking plan at Ohio State is set to help further accommodate this lifestyle change. In the October study “Millennials in Motion,” conducted by the Ohio Public Interest Research Group, researchers found the average amount of miles driven by 16- to 34-year-olds decreased by 23 percent between 2001 and 2009 because of fewer trips and more diverse transportation options. The study also stated that, according to data from the AAA Foundation for Highway Safety, the percentage of high-school seniors who have a driver’s license dropped to 73… Read more

D’Angelo Russell double-double leads Ohio State past No. 23 Indiana, 82-70

January 25, 2015
The script was the same, and for the second game in a row it was a happy ending for the Ohio State men’s basketball team. The Buckeyes started slow, trailing 9-2 in the opening minutes, but fought back at home to upset the visiting No. 23 Indiana Hoosiers, 82-70, on Sunday at the Schottenstein Center. Senior guard Shannon Scott said the recent success by opposing teams in the early going against the Buckeyes has been frustrating. “For some reason everyone starts out hot on us,” Scott said after the game. “I think we did a great job of not getting frustrated about that. I think we did a great job… Read more

NHL All-Star Weekend a ‘first rate’ event for fans

January 25, 2015
The streets of downtown Columbus were blanketed with a colorful collection of hockey apparel Saturday night, as fans from all over North America voyaged to Ohio’s capital city to experience the NHL’s All-Star Weekend. Three years’ worth of anticipation radiated throughout the town, as Sunday’s matchup was the first time since 2012 that an NHL All-Star Game took place. In 2013, the game, which was originally planned to be in Columbus, was canceled because of a nearly four-month lockout. The Winter Olympics were the reason for the game’s absence the following year. Many fans, though, said the impressive quality of the festivities was well-worth the wait. “This is a first-rate… Read more

Opinion: Nancy Grace clumsy, 2 Chainz poised in debate

January 25, 2015
Nancy Grace held a debate on her show this month about the pros and cons of marijuana legalization in the United States. On one side, you had the former prosecutor bashing the drug and those who smoke it, while providing defense on the other side was rapper and marijuana enthusiast 2 Chainz. Not a scientist doing research on the drug, not a member of a pro-legalization group, but 2 Chainz. They made an odd couple, to say the least, but the results of the debate might be even more surprising to some people. 2 Chainz supported his argument by talking about how marijuana compares to alcohol, the time and money… Read more

The buffoon and a neurotic princess: Actors Pine, Kendrick talk ‘Into the Woods’

January 25, 2015
When the Academy Award nominations were announced earlier this month, many filmmakers and actors possibly felt either surprised or snubbed to see which of them would be walking down the red carpet in Hollywood on Feb. 22. One film whose backers might have feared a lack of acknowledgment from the Academy is “Into the Woods,” Disney’s adaptation of the hit Stephen Sondheim Broadway musical. While the film boasts an impressive cast and an Oscar-nominated director in Rob Marshall (for 2002’s “Chicago”), the  live-action musical has not done well at the Oscars lately. The silver screen once shimmered with an aural spectacle ­— it was a time when the “triple threat”… Read more

Opinion: Learning to drive at age 19: ‘Driving is a huge responsibility’

January 25, 2015
I jokingly called it my green card. My Ohio state identification card was green at the top. At the bottom, in all capital letters, it stated “NON-DRIVER.” I got it so if I wanted to go to Big Bar, I could prove I’m over 18 years old without showing my passport. Thankfully, I’ve never actually made it to Big Bar. But now I’ve made it behind the wheel. I might be hyperventilating and crying some of the time, but I’ve made it. My new ID is my temporary license. It’s a long story about what got me here and why it took so long, but all that matters is that… Read more

Letter to the editor: Don’t hesitate to dial 911, police non-emergency numbers

January 22, 2015
Letter to the editor: Taking responsibility for one’s own safety, as well as the safety of the community, begins with having the proper knowledge. While it’s pretty obvious you should call 911 to report a crime in progress, it’s not so obvious to everyone which other crimes might require dialing that number. Suppose there is a suspicious person hanging around outside your apartment. You know something might not be right, but what if you’re wrong? Read The Lantern’s article from Oct. 16 titled “Masturbation, indecency incidents reported off campus” and you’ll see some real-life examples of hesitation to call the police. Note the advice given by Columbus Division of Police… Read more
