    Sep 21, 11 • 700 Views • Knight Vision, OpinionNo Comments

    by Congratulations. Whoop de doo. You were able to pull yourselves out of bed the Saturday morning after a bar crawl – or another lame frat party – to donate four hours of your weekend to the Erie community for GIVE Day. We’ve spent the weekend filling...

  • Letter to the Editor: Cafe benefits international students

    Sep 21, 11 • 549 Views • OpinionNo Comments

    by I came to know about One Green World Café through Jason Steinberg, who is the managing director of the café. When he asked me if I would be interested to work as a barista, I was not sure what my answer should be. I mean, I had never worked in a café...

  • Netflix plays tricks on customers

    Sep 21, 11 • 552 Views • OpinionNo Comments

    by It’s never a good sign when the CEO of a major company starts a blog post with “I messed up.” But that’s exactly what Reed Hastings, co-founder and CEO of Netflix, did Sunday at blog.netflix.com. I’m a fairly new customer to Netflix, only having...

  • End of an era at Ohio State

    Sep 21, 11 • 583 Views • OpinionNo Comments

    by A lot of time in sports, we focus too much on the now rather than looking at things in perspective and appreciating the great feats that athletes and teams have accomplished over the years. After losing to the Miami Hurricanes Saturday, the Ohio State...

  • Anniversary of 9/11 proves unsatisfactory

    Sep 15, 11 • 614 Views • Knight VisionNo Comments

    by Underwhelming is a good way to describe Gannon’s University’s observance of Sept. 11. We, at The Knight, are pretty positive the university did more to honor last year’s Super Bowl than it did to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the greatest...

  • Sept. 11 blesses, curses with expectations

    Sep 15, 11 • 682 Views • OpinionNo Comments

    by Anyone 21 years old or younger who tells you they can remember, with crystal clear precision, the details of their day on Sept. 11, 2001, is a liar. I can recall the watershed events and critical moments but other than that, your guess is as good as mine....

  • Editor claims victory after trip to dentist

    Sep 15, 11 • 815 Views • Opinion1 Comment

    by He’s standing about two inches away from my face and staring intently at me. I have the urge to laugh. Don’t laugh, I think to myself. That would be horrible. This is serious business. After all, this man intimately knows an important part of me. My...

  • Finding God on Gannon’s campus

    Sep 15, 11 • 597 Views • OpinionNo Comments

    by Life can bring about many experiences that test our decision to be kind and merciful. It can be a tough order to fill when we have been harmed. The old “eye for an eye” ethical stance seems to be the knee-jerk reaction. Jesus warns us against this in...

  • Spaniard’s heart, soul displays finer aspects of sports

    Sep 15, 11 • 537 Views • OpinionNo Comments

    by I don’t always watch tennis, but when I do, I prefer Rafael Nadal. Sure, it might be partially due to those puppy dog eyes but only partially. I’m only human. Mostly it’s because of his gumption and the way he simply does not quit. I sat riveted...

  • Bus stop adds color to life

    Sep 15, 11 • 681 Views • OpinionNo Comments

    by I missed the bus. It had already proved to be a fairly dreadful day, as I had unintentionally left my cell phone at home and my last class of the day ended more than a few minutes too late. But missing my bus put the icing on the cake. As I contemplated...
