Ways You Can Substitute Venison for Beef

With its forested foothills, Missouri is one of the best spots in America for avid deer-hunters. Every autumn, many Missourians don the camouflage and climb up to their tree stands to wait for trophy bucks to cross their paths. When one does, a successful hunter gets not only a nice set of antlers to mount on the wall but also pounds upon pounds of venison—lean and arguably a little gamy, but the special kind of treat you simply can’t buy at the grocery store.

Lack of religious holiday acknowledgement is appalling

I missed six out of the first 16 days of my senior year. It was not because I was sick, quarantined or just lazy. It was because of the plethora of Jewish holidays that take place each fall. On each of these days, including my very first day of the...

Lore, light and latkes

Chanukah is the most widely known and most misunderstood Jewish holiday. So, let’s begin by debunking the biggest myth: Chanukah is not the Jewish Christmas.

Thanksgiving lies harm Native culture

Marked on the fourth Thursday of November, Thanksgiving is a time for American families to celebrate what and whom they are thankful for. Some classic and innocent traditions include eating turkey, watching football, and breaking wishbones in hopes for good luck. However, for some, Thanksgiving is nothing but a bitter reminder of their ancestors scorned. Myths of friendship and fair play surround the American holiday in a way that some Native Americans feel erases their rich and long history.

Review: ‘The Unforgivable’ is not unforgettable

Netflix’s “The Unforgivable” was released in limited theaters Wednesday before its streaming premiere on Netflix on Dec. 10.
