SPORTS: When asked to give a word of advice for students who want to join Suffolk University’s women’s tennis team, Caren Urbano made it simple: show up.

“Just show up and try your best. Try to learn as much as possible from the other players and have fun,” Urbano said. “Get involved as much as you can because we only live this for four years, so try to make the most of it while you can.”

Urbano is the first player in women’s tennis to earn two All-CCC Honors as announced by the Commonwealth Coast Conference — this season in the singles second team and last season in the singles third team.

OPINION: Biopics are a popular form of media today, but with this popularity often comes backlash from people involved in these shows who were not consulted. When biopics are created, they often don’t take into account the opinions of those affected or should be involved.

When made without consent, biopics can have many negative impacts: they can harm reputations, ignore the desires of the person on whom the biopic is based, create unfair views or bias and exploit the struggles of the people involved, even posthumously.

One example is Pamela Anderson with the Hulu series “Pam and Tommy” about her and her ex-husband, Tommy Lee. She wrote a memoir and created a documentary about her life, but was upset at not being consulted on a show created about her. According to Harpers Bazaar “all it did was re-exploit her,” despite its attempt to “rehabilitate her image.”

ARTS: “The Hunger Games” prequel “The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” is reminding a generation raised on dystopian fantasy media that the rebellious characters thought to be lost in a mid-2000’s era are just as relevant and powerful as ever.

The dystopian fiction novel “The Hunger Games,” written by Suzanne Collins, spoke to a generation of young people in the midst of crisis for many families and a high-tension moment in politics. In the time leading up to the release of the first novel of the series, the demand for stories of strength and empowerment was clear: Katniss Everdeen was the answer.

The unapologetically defiant strength found in the 16-year-old underdog was what the younger generations of the time were craving. Putting the face of Jennifer Lawrence onto the character in the film adaptation was exactly the push the timely story of “The Hunger Games” needed to touch the lives and ambitions of today’s Generation Z and millenials.

OPINION: In this day and age, most people’s lives are overpowered by technology. We see it everywhere: at work, at home or just out and about.

With our lives so intertwined with technology, people are losing touch with other people, and it ultimately hinders our society.

Today, it can be considered a necessity, especially to the younger generation, as most people could not bear the thought of walking to class without listening to music, or watching TikToks in the elevator to avoid awkward silence with strangers.

ARTS: Bostonians can now immerse themselves into the “Friends” lifestyle when they visit Central Perk Coffeehouse in Back Bay. Don’t worry though, there aren’t any smelly cats there. The location is the first permanent Central Perk in the world – could this BE any more exciting?

The coffee shop opened Nov. 14 at 205 Newbury Street and is inspired by the iconic TV series “Friends” that aired from 1994 to 2004. The show is about six single friends living in New York City trying to navigate their lives as adults.

Throughout the 10 seasons, Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Monica Geller (Courtney Cox), Rachel Green (Jennifer Anniston), Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) and Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) spend a lot of their time on a bright orange, velvet couch in Central Perk, a coffee shop on the first floor of their apartment building.

OPINION: Celebrities and influencers are working minimum wage jobs as a public relations stunt, but it’s not doing them any favors.

Over the past few years, we have seen celebrities work minimum-wage jobs for PR before. Most recently, Lana Del Rey worked at Waffle House, Ed Sheeran worked at a hot dog restaurant, Ariana Grande worked at Starbucks and Ben Affleck at a Dunkin’.

Most of the time these stunts are used to promote a product the celebrity has in collaboration with the company, but even that logic does not settle that weird feeling I get when I see celebrities in these working-class positions.

OPINION: Social media and art can go hand-in-hand, but when TikTok’s “BookTok” algorithm seems to push harmful tropes onto young women, the beauty of reading is distorted. One author is the pinnacle of social media success, while her work is full of harmful ideology: Colleen Hoover.

The popularization of Hoover’s novels on “BookTok” negatively influences the relationship ideals of young women. Because of the short-form style of content on TikTok, the themes of domestic violence written in Hoover’s novels have become watered down by “BookTok.”

While there’s nothing wrong with reading books for pleasure, the way that “BookTok” markets Hoover’s novels tends to simplify or completely ignore how toxic the relationships in her novels are.

ARTS: A new song by The Beatles, something people born in the 21st century thought they would never get in their lifetime, was released Nov. 2.

To most people, a new Beatles song releasing in 2023 seemed like an impossibility after the deaths of John Lennon and George Harrison in 1980 and 2001, respectively. Not only this, but The Beatles broke up over 53 years ago in 1970.

So it was a surprise to many when The Beatles’ social media accounts posted a cryptic video of a cassette tape with no audio Oct. 25, teasing a new release. The release was revealed to be “Now and Then,” a song recorded by Lennon as a rough home demo in 1977.

The Scribblers, created by President Lydia Comprosky and Vice President April Banuelos, looks to fill a creative void for students not able to take some of the more artistically-inclined classes for various reasons.

“My vice president, April Banuelos, and I really wanted to form this because we felt it would be fun. I don’t have an opportunity to write here with classes having limited student amounts. I wanted to learn more and expand with the people around us,” said Comprosky.

NEWS: Thousands gathered at Copley Square Nov. 12 to call for a ceasefire in the ongoing war between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas that has devastated the Gaza Strip.

The demonstration, organized by the Pan-African Liberation Program, Activists for Palestine, Mosque for Praising Allah, Diocese St. Francis of Assis, Huskies for a Free Palestine, Pride at Work and Franciscan of Saint Jose Cupertino, marched from the Boston Public Library to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, according to The Boston Globe. The march forced the shutdown of Mass. Ave. between Vassar Street and Memorial Drive, as well as streets surrounding Copley Square.

Israel has continued to launch air strikes on Gaza following an attack on Israel Oct. 7 by Hamas, resulting in around 1,200 deaths and 240 hostages according to the Israeli government. Israel declared war Oct. 8, and since then over 11,100 Palestinians have been killed, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

Defensemen Matthew Belluardo, Jack Phelps and Brady Sorensen were selected to the All-CCC first team, the highest all-conference honor that’s usually given out to the very best players in the conference.

“I worked really hard and I’m very happy that I achieved this, but it’s something I couldn’t have done without all 40 kids on the roster. Every goal that I scored, every tackle I made, or every clean sheet that I had was because I had 40 kids backing me,” said Belluardo.
