4E’s Fall Fashion Preview 2016

Banner - Fall FashionWe at The Fourth Edition take our look quite seriously. As I’m sure you saw, The Hoya released it’s Fall Fashion preview November 4th. As we were so inspired by The Hoya‘s theme of “Forever Young,” we pulled a copy cat move; not “Forever Young” but “Forever Free to Be Me.” Check it out:

Reuter, our resident fortune teller, correctly predicted that 2016 would conclude looking eerily like 1994. Here’s her take on recycling fashion trends.

PSA: Facebook Updated Their ‘Like’ Button

UntitledIf you’ve been living under or a rock or, more realistically, been avoiding logging onto Facebook to prevent further procrastination from midterms, then you may have missed Facebook’s latest update.  In response to years of users calling for a ‘dislike’ option to complement the ‘like’ button, Facebook has finally responded by rolling out a whole new set of emojis you can use to describe your response to someone’s post.  The new emojis, dubbed ‘Reactions’, include six different options and can be accessed by scrolling and hovering over the old ‘like’ button.  While this update allows users to more openly express their feelings, many individuals are left wondering when they should use one ‘Reaction’ over another. In order to help those users out, 4E has created an Etiquette Guide to Using ‘Reactions.’

  1. Like: This is the same old button that Facebook users have grown to like since it was first introduced in early 2009.  While it used to be appropriate to ‘like’ anything from a cute picture of a baby panda to that profound life status from an old grade school classmate, you should be warned to use this button sparingly.
    Post to ‘like’: Your great Aunt Phyllis’s 1000th picture of her cats.
  2. Love: The ‘love’ button is a big step up from the ‘like’ button.  Prior to its addition on Facebook, you probably used to casually scroll through your crush’s updates and try to inconspicuously ‘like’ a couple posts here and there.  The new ‘love’ button is really a game changer as you can really show someone just how creepy and obsessive you really are.
    Post to ‘love’: Any and all of your crush’s old posts and profile pictures from 2008 to 2010.  This will not only show off your true stalking abilities, but will be a true sign of your love from him/her regardless of their old awkward photos.
  3. Haha: Remember how you used to write ‘haha’ every time you thought a post was funny?  If you’re suffering from sort of freak amnesia, scroll back to 2011 for reference (side note: you most likely also used the :P smiley during that time period).  With this new reaction, actually typing ‘haha’ is now obsolete as its inclusion as a ‘Reaction’ was most likely due to the Millennials’ pure laziness…
    Post to ‘haha’: ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING.  Think that video of a dog running into a glass door is funny? ‘Haha’ it!  And that really witty status that kid you haven’t since high school posted? ‘Haha it’! The ‘haha’ is definitely the most versatile new ‘Reaction’ so feel free to use it as obnoxiously as you see fit!
  4. Wow: Sometimes someone’s post on Facebook really just leaves you speechless.  Whether that’s in a good or bad way, users have never actually had a way to accurately express such sentiment before now!
    Post to ‘wow’: That ~profound~ political rant posted by that gov major who definitely thinks they’re the next Bill Clinton.
  5. Sad: Sometimes Facebook posts are just sad, ya know?  Clicking the like button to show your support was never really appropriate and sometimes commenting on a status for someone you didn’t really know was a little too awkward.  The ‘sad’ button now allows users to demonstrate how a post might make them tear up just a little bit.
    Post to ‘sad’: Any shared video about animal abuse set to a Sarah McLachlan song.  While you’re at it, you might want to get the tissues ready too.
  6. Angry: Ever read a post that made you really fired up?  Maybe you even posted your own status as a reaction to it.  Either way, after a long time coming Facebook has finally introduced an ‘angry’ button which is arguably a step up from the ‘dislike’ button that so many people had previously requested.
    Post to ‘angry’: ANY post that mentions Syracuse or Villanova and does not mention Georgetown’s superiority.

The Scoop: GUPD Catches Suspect & Uses Instagram

paul_blart_mall_copHi Hoyas! With all of this ~criminal activity~ on campus lately, 4E wants to do their part to keep fellow Hoyas and members of our community as safe as can be with a PSA: GUPD has an Instagram account!!!

As you may have seen, at approximately 7:42 p.m. last Friday, our very own chief of police, Jay Gruber, notified us that the suspect in an armed robbery that occurred on campus Wednesday night had been identified and arrested in the Leavey Center. With the help of a student report, they were able to pull this off. But, with the help of Instagram, they were able to notify students much earlier!

(Evidence: This screenshot was taken at least 2 hours before any official notice was reported to students.)

Now as weird and perhaps even sketchy? as all of this was, we here at 4E would like to commend GUPD for reaching students where they are: Instagram.

Side note: Students were also on campus during this time, so maybe there could be another small protocol way of telling us when armed criminals are roaming our buildings… just a thought.

Anyway, they’ll get there! Let’s keep showing GUPD our support with a little Insta-love.

Their ratio right now is alright, but you know if this were your account you’d be telling yourself do better.

They also post cool bike pics like this. Plus if @thegeorgetownchimes likes their stuff, shouldn’t you?

Props to them on their charity work! Really impressive!!

Yet another side note: Still wondering if they have an update on my stolen bike from the first week of fall semester…

Sometimes they even pose with students! Bucket list fall 2015: get in a @gu_pd Insta!

Anyway, GUPD keep doing you and doing safety, we really appreciate it! Students, be sure to follow this account. You don’t want any FOMO about, you know, actual real world safety issues right outside our doors!
