Obama, Romney and Facebook

Will the 2012 election results hinge on social media? Facebook and Twitter are playing an increasing role in the 2012 presidential election. According to CNN, a recent survey finds 18% of social network users have blocked or defriended over political posts. David Talbot, a writer for Technology Review, calls Facebook “the real presidential swing state”. Will Facebook influence your vote?

Glorious Food!

Oh, food, Wonderful food, Marvelous food, Glorious food!

These lyrics from the Broadway show Oliver could be the theme song for the food craze that is sweeping the country. Research has shown that young people are joining this foodie movement. Many college students are tuning into the Food Network channel and watching programs like Chopped, Iron Chef, or The Great Food Truck Race. Cookbooks can be found on best-seller lists and even summer camps are jumping on the food wagon by including cooking as a major camp activity. The movement toward interesting food and cooking healthy can also be found at MVCC. The college library has a great menu of cookbooks, DVDs and food magazines.
