    It is with great sadness and regret that I post: Joseph Phillips OD, aka “BadJoe,” passed away today, November 1, 2012, after a long illness. Joe wanted to hang on until November 7, 2012, but lost his struggle just a few days too early. Joe was a patriot, a lover of liberty, and an independent-minded gentleman. He leaves behind family, friends, and a loving wife. He will be missed. RIP BadJoe.

Experts attribute back pain in the college years primarily to prolonged immobility and incorrect posture. "It's cool just to slouch," said Eric Lim, a freshman majoring in computer science. "You don't want to be all uptight." Poorly designed seating in USC lecture halls, classrooms and computer workstations also contributes to back pain among...
