  • Richard Driscoll ’06, a performance engineer for Oracle Team USA that will defend the America’s Cup in September, is among the few locals hunkering down in Pier 80 off Marin Street, where they work 65-hour weeks to make sure that Ellison’s boat sails twice as fast as the wind and maneuvers with precision and power as it takes on challengers from around the world.

$6 For A Latte, Yes Please

Never did I think that the infamous “Seasonal Red Cups” at Starbuck’s would surface on November 1st. Literally one day after Halloween, marketing teams across the globe forced Christmas cheer on the world. What if I don’t want it, huh? What will they do then? I think this is all a ploy for social media to go crazy. In the words of Nicole Persons ’14, “I could just put red wrapping paper on a regular Starbuck’s

cup three months early, Instagram it, and cause pandemonium.”  And don’t even get me started on Peet’s Coffee. Their autumnal drinks spotlighted on the menu for a total of four weeks until Christmas bulldozed their dreams. All I ever wanted was a pumpkin latté around Thanksgiving. Thanks a latté, Peet’s.

Pretty soon the world will go up in flames if the balance of the universe is not restored. The school Wi-Fi will start working, Pluto will be considered a planet again, and Hump Day will be on a Friday if things don’t go back to normal! It’s safe to say that now is the time to panic.
