Naked girls from stanford
On the first full moon of the school year, students celebrate Full Moon on the Quad, a bacchanal-like celebration that draws thousands of undergraduates to one hour of pressing the flesh. Some are in body paint and others arrive in the buff. Food trucks, iconic movies of couples kissing, music and plenty of alcohol fuel the event, and at the stroke of midnight, students are divided into groups of gay and straight and they are free to kiss with abandon -- with the consent of the recipient, of course. In the last three decades, Full Moon on the Quad has been cancelled only one year, in , when the H1N1, or swine flu, virus was rampant. This year, because of a conflict with homecoming, it was held on Oct. The administration hands out free mouthwash and makes half-hearted efforts to curtail too much open-mouth contact so as not to promote contagious college diseases like the flu or mononucleosis or, worst case, meningitis. The New York Times , which recently published a story on the annual event, called it an "orgy of interclass kissing" and a "domestic example of a new field in public health 'mass-gathering medicine. William Schaffner, professor and chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University, has concerns about Full Moon on the Quad, but they aren't about contracting a disease. The year-old university sanctions the event, which began in the s and, after going out of fashion for some time, was resurrected in the s. Shawn Lipinski, who graduated from Stanford in , said that while the event is promoted as a "rite of passage," where seniors get to kiss freshmen, most all upperclassmen join in.

University officials hand out mouthwash to prevent disease.
Goldstein of The Chronicle of Higher Education:. Rhode, a professor of law at Stanford University and a self-described sartorial sinner. Another poll indicates that half of women are very or moderately unhappy with their bodies. Perhaps most troubling, by age 9, anywhere from 50 to 80 percent of girls want to lose weight. Rhode, who seems appalled by those figures, spends more than a few pages fingering, among other targets, the news media and advertisers for pushing an unattainable standard of female attractiveness. In our looks-obsessed culture, appearance-related prejudice is rampant. Legal scholars, however, have consistently played down its deleterious consequences. But is the problem amenable to legal remedy? Some critics of prohibitions on appearance-based discrimination note that standards of physical attractiveness are hard-wired and therefore impervious to legal intervention. Rhode disagrees.
Playboy is about more than just pretty girls shedding their clothes and the men's magazine is definitely about more than the articles. Playboy is about bringing bitter rivals together. The English and philosophy major is one of the magazine's newest models and has a new best friend from her school's bitter rival. Shallot and Stanford student Kristen Elizabeth Gura posed nude for Playboy's annual issue featuring "the hottest college girls," which hits newsstands Friday. Think of Gura as Shallot's Capulet. Ahead of Friday's release of the magazine, Shallot took a few moments to talk about why she decided to pose for the magazine, what it means to represent her school in the buff and how she became friends with a Stanford student. What do you hope to do after graduating? I grew up all over the place, but I spent my childhood in Sonoma and Marin and most of my formative years in the great state of Montana. I moved back to California the last semester of my senior year of high school. I guess you could say I went from one cultural extreme to another!
By Elias Mooring on November 9, Stickers providing information about a recently released application, Nude, have become a common sight at Stanford. The app, created by former Berkeley students Y. Chen and Jessica Chiu, has been heavily marketed on the Stanford campus via stickers placed on buildings and bulletin boards.
Stanford students The Daily spoke to had a mixed response to the app and its aim. The act of storing, and learning how to identify that, feels like it could be used for worse things. According to Chen, the auto-detection process can be turned off so that the user can manually import photos.
The app can also be used to store important documents and information. Nude was created in response to the series of celebrity nude photo scandals that Chiu heard about from friends in Hollywood. Martinez acknowledged that she had also heard of such scandals. Chen says that the problem with other photo vaults comes from storing photos in the cloud. Chen and Chiu have tried to overcome the issues this creates. So I personally have no reason to want to safely store them. Demonbreun, however, does not feel as strongly about his own privacy regarding nude photos.
Audio Manager, unlike Nude, uses cloud storage. Demonbreun is happy with its performance. But they have spent almost no money on marketing, with most of their advertising happening through word of mouth at Stanford and Berkeley. Demonbreun, for example, finds it to be a common occurrence. I saw a horde of naked people at Full Moon on the Quad freshman year. Sometimes people have bets and the loser has to run around naked. The Daily stands in solidarity with the Black community.
