The Morning After a Crazy Week

Hello and good morning Golden Hawks! Hopefully you’ve had a fantastic week and no issues easing into those dreaded midterms. This week O$AP and Goldilocks had lots to talk about as it’s been a hectic week in world events as well as within the Laurier community.

The show started with a segment regarding the Miss Universe Pageant and this year’s winner, Iris Mittenaere from France! The returning host, Steve Harvey, had the chance to redeem himself successfully after announcing the wrong contestant as the winner in last years pageant. If you’re interested in reading more about the pageant, click here!

Next on the celebrity list is Justin Bieber, who made an appearance at this years NHL All-Stars competition. Apparently his coach for the big game was hockey idol Wayne Gretzky. O$AP and Goldilocks had to debate who would have been more excited to meet the other. The conclussion was definitely Bieber being more excited, even though it’s probably safe to assume Gretzky is a big pop fan!

And last on our celebrity list this week is Lady Gaga who will be performing at this year’s Superbowl, where the Patriots will face the Falcons. Though she’s quite the performer, it wasn’t clear whether or not your Morning After DJ’s agreed with her being this years pick for the biggest football game of the year. Hopefully she can keep up with the legendary entertainment of the Superbowl commercials and get the crowd even more pumped for the game.

In this weeks Laurier news, we send a well-deserved congratulations to the new Student Union President Kanwar Brar! Such a motivational and involved new president will surely show that the Golden Hawks are in good hands. Also coming this week is the voting for positions in the Laurier student publications. Between 7-10 PM this Wednesday February 1st, come enjoy some free food and good company in the Hawk’s nest right beside the Turret. Get involved and send out your votes! To read up on the candidates and other information regarding WLUSP, click here!

Lastly, Laurier sends it’s condolences to the victims of the Quebec mosque shootings on Sunday. To anyone involved and connected with the family’s affected we send our thoughts and prayers.

Have a lovely week Hawks! We’ll see you next Monday on the Morning After!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten of 2016

Now that 2016 has come to an end we’re counting down the top  10 songs of the year.

10. 7 years by Lukas Graham

Lyrics are deep. Brings tears to peoples eyes, but not mine obviously.

 

9. Hotline Bling by Drake

Some may argue it was overplayed, but it’s still in the top ten of 2016.

Seriously, when you think back to 2016 20 years from now you’ll think of this song. Or maybe a little Drake ain’t your thang.

 

8. Famous by Kanye West

Obviously everyones jam. However my personal fave is Fade.

7.  Closer by The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey

It’s obvious as to why this is in the top ten. Played on every radio station and every aux cord. This is basically the anthem for 2016.

6. Dang! by Mac Miller ft. Anderson .Paak

My favourite on this list. It’s just so sooo good.

5. Formation by Beyoncé

Every dance crew ever has done it. and if you haven’t, are you really a crew?

4. Love Yourself by Justin Bieber

It’s a banger yo.

3. Starboy by The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk

Such a tune. However, imo y’all need to listen to Rockin’ if you haven’t already because it’s the best song off the album.

2. Bodmon by Ramriddlz

I would just put the whole album on this list but I had to pick one.

1. Panda by Desiigner

Worthy of #1 just because.

Week 4.2 – January 30, 2017

The three of us were politickin’ hard in the studio. There was so much to talk about, yet at times, we found it hard to find the words. On the bright side, we did our first live stream on Instagram (@afterclazz) and it went…well (?)

Shia LaBeouf and Jaden Smith, amongst other celebrities, have launched a live stream campaign under the name “He Will Not Divide Us.” They plan to conduct this live stream for the entire four year of Donald Trump‘s first term as President of the United States. On January 25th, LaBeouf was arrested for suspicion of assault while on camera. He allegedly grabbed a man by the scarf and began yelling, “He will not divide us” in his ear. Reports following vouched for LaBeouf acting in an appropriate manner, being that the man was reciting part of Adolf Hitler‘s “1488” speech, stating that it is the duty of the white man to secure a future for themselves and their white children. To read more about this movement, click here.

The #MuslimBan is all over the news. Rudy Giuliani went on the record stating that it was not a question of religion… which begs the question, how is it a Muslim ban if it’s not based on religion? We battled with this question, but DJ Winks provided us with the perfect video to examine both sides with:

      The transportation network company Uber has taken a massive hit. Millions have deleted the app in retaliation towards its CEO,

    Travis Kalanick

      . He is a member of Trump’s economic advisory council.
        The biggest lesson that we want to teach is this:

      educate yourself

          . Do not hate others for their views, just because they differ from yours. If you have the democratic right to vote, inform yourself and use it.

        All Laurier students 

            can have their say in the future of our Student Publications organization through attending our Annual General Meeting this Wednesday, February 1st. Make your voice heard, and your views know. For the event, click
