The phrase "invasive species" often conjures up images of 18-foot-long pythons prowling the Everglades or a pack of wild boar pillaging the forest. But invasive species exist all around us — many times in subtler but more pervasive forms. From the House Sparrows that fly overhead to the English Ivy that adorns our buildings, invasive species quietly choke our landscape.

Adam Sandler’s ‘Spaceman’: A $40 Million catastrophe?

(03/07/24 11:44pm)

Adam Sandler’s 12th movie produced by Netflix, “Spaceman,” is ambitious, self-knowingly quirky and, ultimately, disappointing. Sandler stars as a Czech astronaut, Jakub, alongside fellow heavy-hitters: Carey Mulligan as Lenka, his pregnant, estranged wife and Paul Dano as Hanuš, the voice of his primordial arachnid companion (I know, quite the string of words).

Mr. Keating may have been fired — wrongly accused of instigating the death of a student — but he had left an indelible mark of courage on the young boys he had so vivaciously taught. As the end credits of “Dead Poets Society” rolled, I thought of college. In a few months, I would be leaving behind the comfort of my home and faced with the same choice as the boys from Welton Academy: I could either stick to the script I had clung to thus far — the assembly line of advanced classes and good grades and dozens of extracurriculars — or I could take inspiration from Keating and live freely, passionately, and accomplish amazing things all the while.

You know that feeling when you work really hard on an assignment? You stay up late and wake up early.
