Restaurants nowadays are not merely about food anymore. The atmosphere and the experience are today’s keys to attracting customers in the very competitive business of gastronomy. St. Louis offers various locations and diners that provide a good combination of cuisine and ambience, but there is no place quite like Three Sixty St. Louis.

The restaurant, established in July 2011, features over 6,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor dining spaces. As the weather begins warming up and Opening Day for the Cardinals is less than two weeks away, you should definitely have this on your list for elevated dining, game watching and people watching.

What is the biggest threat humanity will have to face in the upcoming decades? In our current situation, many would assume that viruses may form a large risk in the future, yet the real danger is equally invisible but capable of far more than a virus: Climate change. While many fail to approach this problem or even deny its existence, experts are sure that humanity will have to resolve it soon before it is too late. But are we aware of how this problem developed, and more importantly, do we know how to stop it?
A sad picture for climate activists. The combustion of fossil fuels results in a heavily growing concentration of CO2, or carbon dioxide, in the air, which is believed to be the main cause of climate change. Photo courtesy of Pixabay
Over one year ago, the first American was diagnosed with a virus that has become more than just a disease; it has become a symbol of fear, isolation and death. Endless lockdowns and mask mandates are what particularly characterize our perception of 2020. But has COVID-19 really brought only negatives to society, or are there perhaps even aspects about our life that were enhanced due to the global outbreak of a novel disease?
We have peered at each other from behind cloth masks for more than a year now, and it looks like the end might be in sight, but have we gained any positive understandings throughout this horrific pandemic? Have we gained a new appreciation for social connections amid social distancing? Photo by Dominic Johnson
Believe it or not, there once was a time when you would walk into the Perk or SRC or Mabee Great Hall and see your friends and classmates smiling and laughing, and you could actually see their faces. What a difference a year makes. Those times will certainly return, but in the meantime how are students at Missouri Baptist University coping with the requirement to continue wearing masks after the mandate has been in place for the better part of a full year now?
