Emma Stone’s Top 6 Looks from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Press Tour

by Katy Herman

Emma Stone, in addition to being one of my favorite actresses, has incredible, incredible style.  “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” hits theaters tomorrow (one guess what I’m doing between my last class and Haverfest), and in celebration I decided to make a list of her best looks from the promotional tour thus far (her six best, I couldn’t narrow it down to five).  One amazing thing is the wide variety of designers she wears—although she frequently wears Lanvin, there’s not a single duplicate on this list.

 

6.  In Lanvin at the Paris premiere

So beautiful and high fashion, perfect for the Paris premiere.  I love the feminine-yet-sturdy shoes with the girly ankle strap and how they balance perfectly with the incredibly edgy dress.  And of course, the red lip was necessary.

News? or Gossip?

By Charlotte May

We have been sitting at the periphery of a storm for the last few weeks. Since January 21 of this year, there has been an ongoing investigation of a drug ring on and around our campus.

According to the Montgomery District Attorney’s office, two masterminds, Neil K. Scott and Timothy C. Brooks, both local main-liners who attended the Haverford School for Boys and played on the same lacrosse team, allegedly orchestrated Project Takeover to supply and distribute drugs to local prep schools and colleges. This meant including two Haverford College students along with 6 other sub-dealers from high schools in the area as dealers at the Haverford School, Lafayette College, Gettysburg College, Haverford College, Radnor High School, Harriton High School, Conestoga High School, and Lower Merion High School.

The District Attorney’s office spoke out on Monday April 21st saying, “These arrests show that we are all affected by the cancerous and corruptive nature of illegal drugs.” While the facts are easily available through the District Attorney’s office at:http://www.montcopa.org/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/1784

Many of the facts that have been played over and over on the news, repeated in the dining centers and hallways of these campuses, have distorted the truth of what is going on. The facts have been blown out of proportion or mixed together and still we do not have a full picture of the events that have happened in relation to the drug ring.

The investigation and its fallout have brought a new question to the table: What is news? What are the facts? How much of the news we get is hearsay?

Being at the eye of a news story teaches us that much of what we hear and what is said is not necessarily the whole story. It begs the question of how much of the daily news we read and discuss is actually the reality of the situation?

The 90%-10% Rule: De-stress for Finals

by Hannah Rice

If you tell college students to live by the 90%-10% motto most of us would think that refers to the policy proposed in the movie Hitch about initiating a kiss; however to me 90%-10% rule evokes another meaning.

The best thing about Haverford, to me, is the people. I created Humans of Haverford to capture the true spirit of Haverford through the individuals that it’s comprised of. I hope to catch a glimpse of the thoughts, feelings, and perspectives of Haverfordians with a photo and a conversation, one black squirrel at a time.

The Superheroes Among Us

by Hannah Rice 

What comes to mind when you think of a superhero? Generally a superhero consists of an impossibly buff man who somehow pulls off the unique look of underwear over tights. And let’s not forget the infamous array of capes that apparently defy the laws of aerodynamics in order to propel a fully-grown human being into the sky. However, these fantastical portrayals of superheroes are misleading and distracting from what it really means to be a hero.
