“Fallout 4” is released on Nov. 10, so I suggest spending your Wednesday huddled in a blanket fort, in darkness highlighted by the glow of a screen and delighting in what this newest installment to the franchise can offer you. Following the cancellation of “Silent Hill,” I was overcome with what I can only describe as overwhelming post-break-up angst, which I directed towards the gaming industry as a whole. If you, like me, have been avoiding the industry for a while, this may be the time to dust off your console and say, “Let’s give it another try.” – Kyrie Long / Copy Editor

At 3:30pm in the UA Museum of the North auditorium there will be a screening and discussion of “Changa Revisited: Thirty Years in the Life of a Maasai Family.” This is a “documentary depicting the shocking clarity with which three Ilparakuyo Maasai women understand the dissolution of their Ilparakuyo community in Tanzania. They describe their homestead as torn by human and livestock diseases, widespread alcoholism among men and the increase of poverty, disrespect, migration and violence.” If you need something a little more cheery, you might consider exploring the desolate, apocalyptic nuclear wasteland of Boston in “Fallout 4”, the most recent Bethesda game that released on Tuesday. That’s certainly what I plan on. – Molly Putman / Layout Editor

If you manage to get out of your house without any major mishaps, you might spend your afternoon checking out Frozen Lenses, a student organization dedicated to bringing photographers together to share and critique work, discuss photography, learn new photographic processes and plan group workshops.  They meet every Friday in 106 Bunnell from 1-2 p.m.  Several of the photographers in the club have had their work shown in notable galleries, though they do welcome photographers of all skill levels, making it an ideal place for any light-capturer who seeks to improve his or her skill. – Danny Fisher / Editor-in-Chief

Meditation isn’t just for hippies, you know. It’s for you, and for me, and for Santa, and for Buddha, and for everyone. In fact, this Saturday, you’ve got two opportunities to get your meditation on. An intro to meditation will be hosted in Duckering 341 at 10 a.m. directly followed by a Simran meditation workshop in the U-Park Elementary gym at 11:30 a.m. Come learn basic breathing and visualization techniques and other good meditation practices. Who knows, you may even reach enlightenment.- Lida Zakurdaew / Distribution Manager
