    Benjamin Barber, incoming executive president of the Illinois Institute of Technology Student Government Association (SGA), was hesitant to say that handling the return to in-person classes and the continuing COVID-19 pandemic would be the defining features of the new SGA executive board — or be its legacy.

    With great power comes great responsibility. Like that, with great interviews comes a great amount of preparation. I experienced this in my fatal first interview attempt with Microsoft. I interviewed last week for a product lead position with the hopes and dreams of a naive young boy. But sooner I realized I went to war yielding a spear made of sponge against a fire-spitting dragon. I would rate my interview experience as the most terrible one, including all that is yet to come.

    The suggestion that the virus which causes COVID-19 was developed in an experiment is among the many unsubstantiated claims that have threatened efforts to keep people updated during pandemic. Misinformation is dangerous. The overwhelming majority of scientists who have researched the virus, however, believe that it originated spontaneously and spread to humans from such an animal species, most likely a bat.

    There are times when all of us need that extra care and warmth, and nothing gives more comfort than a cozy bed. But with all that rest, our body needs some extra nutrients as well to bring our routine back to normal. Although medicines help us cure illnesses faster, that visit to the doctor is takes time. However, for common and mild maladies, there is our Indian herbal shelf which can’t be ignored for all the precious herbs and spices it stores. So, lets dig a bit deeper and see which herb or spice can be used for specific conditions.

  • Inside the mind of an Introvert

    I have always admired people who could straight away head into an unknown group and talk with everyone comfortably. I always wondered: how do they even do that? Do they not care about being judged? Do they not feel like their head is going to explode in anxiety? Do they not sweat profusely and just run away so far from those strange set of judgmental eyes? Well, these are some of the first thoughts in an introvert's brain in an unfamiliar social group. If you are wondering what their brain thinks if they are asked to speak out in public, well you will have to find out once an introvert wakes up from a blackout.
