Just a little blast from the past. Childhood nostalgia for girls who grew up in the 90s and early 2000s ♥

Girls these days don’t know what they’re missing out on.

I can literally smell the cheap plastic
memories

I HAD EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE PLASTICY GOD SENDS OF THE 90S - 2000S. MEMORIES 

and the stick-on earrings only sometimes went on ears

the rest of the time they went at the corners of the eyes

The Marauder’s Map is lasting testimony to the advanced magical ability of the four friends who included Harry Potter’s father, godfather and favourite teacher. The map they created during their time at Hogwarts appears to be a blank piece of parchment unless activated by the phrase: I solemnly swear that I am up to no good, a phrase that, in the case of three of the four makers, should be understood as a joke. The ‘no good’ of which they wrote never denoted Dark magic, but school rule-breaking; similar bravado is evinced by their use of their own nicknames on the map (‘Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs’).

The magic used in the map’s creation is advanced and impressive; it includes the Homonculous Charm, enabling the possessor of the map to track the movements of every person in the castle, and it was also enchanted to forever repel (as insultingly as possible) the curiosity of their nemesis, Severus Snape.

The BBC Pop Up (bbcpopup) team has spent all of September living in a house right on the edge of the Boulder campus of Colorado University. The issue of sexual assaults at US colleges was raised repeatedly by students we met.

It is a national problem, with studies showing that one in five women will be victims during their time at university.

And it is a serious problem at CU-Boulder too. The college is on the White House’s list of schools suspected of Title IX violations - that’s a law guaranteeing that women in federally-funded universities won’t face discrimination due to their gender and have equitable access to education.

More than 70 schools, including CU-Boulder, are accused of having improperly dealt with sexual assault cases, and are now the target of a federal investigation.

Will curbing fraternity culture help prevent college rapes? Or are they easy targets for a more complex problem?

Benjamin Zand investigated the role fraternity culture plays in sexual assault at CU-Boulder.
