Here’s the thing about social media: If you’re not careful, your dirty laundry can end up everywhere. But Cullen Hoback, the online-privacy expert who directed the film “Terms and Conditions May Apply,” will help students protect their information at 8 p.m. in the Livingston Student Center.

Tuesday, March 7

When it comes to nailing a job interview, anyone can use a bit of advice. Rutgers future business leaders host an improvisation event at 9:50 p.m. in the Business School designed to help jobseekers become nimble during interviews.

Wednesday, March 8

Rutgers women’s tennis takes on Binghamton at 12:30 p.m. at the East Brunswick Racquet Club, 11 Ruth St., East Brunswick. For more information, check out this page.

Campus activists plan to hold a walk-out to teach-in at 2 p.m. at Voorhees Mall. The event, which is part of the larger A Day Without a Woman movement, includes speakers who will discuss everything from reproductive rights and civic engagement to immigrant rights. Jack Murtha of TAPinto New Brunswick will be on hand to discuss press freedom and fake news.

If you like to eat samosas, consider this something of a dream. Rutgers DIYA oversees its eighth annual samosa eating contest at 7 p.m. in the Busch Student Center. A bunch of heavyweights will square off in the contest, but spectators can pay $3 to watch and eat catered Indian food.

Thursday, March 9

It turns out you don’t need to go to New York to feel like you’re in New York. That’s because Rutgers Wind Symphony plans to perform “New York, New York” at 7:30 p.m. at the Nicholas Music Center. The show features Mark Dover, a renowned clarinet soloist, and other big-name musicians.

UndocuRutgers, a campus group that advocates for undocumented students, holds its general meeting at 9:15 p.m. in the Center for Latino Arts and Culture. It’s also a potluck, which means attendees are encouraged to bring foods from various countries.

Or you can drink liquor to satisfy your weekly activism quota. The Rutgers One and the Same Foundation hosts a bar night at the Olive Branch from 11 p.m. to closing. Shots cost $2, and the proceeds help vaccinate children in India.

Friday, March 10

Rutgers men’s lacrosse battles Stony Brook at 6 p.m. at the Rutgers Stadium Complex. For more information, click here.

Fridays are for food and drink. The Frog and Peach intends to hold a Falesco Wine Dinner at 7 p.m., Dennis Street, which includes five courses—with five glasses of wine. Tickets cost $110 plus tax and tip.

Saturday, March 11

New Brunswick plans to gather electronic waste from 8 a.m. to noon at its public works site, 400 Jersey Ave. Residents can dump their TVs, laptops, desktop computers, paint and painting tools.

Why not celebrate St. Paddy’s Day with The Five Irish Tenors at 8 p.m. at the State Theatre? The guys plan to perform a mix of traditional Irish songs with new music. Tickets run from $35 to $268 for VIP box seats.

STATEWIDE - No one really wants to talk about it. But every time you turn on a household faucet for tap water, its likely messing with a centuries-old system that's possibly leaching lead. And, because of so many World War I-era systems, some parts of the state have an over-abundance of water, while others easily face drought. Of course, upgrading our water ...

ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL - There's a Democratic primary in New York between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and "Sex in the City" star Cynthia Nixon. And why do we care?

The Jaffe Briefing - July 9, 2018

ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL - It looks like Republicans aspiring for federal office have found a talking point to slam Democrats with: the new, $37.4 billion state budget under Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy. It has millions in tax increases, NJ.com reports, and those Republicans running for Congress want to show New Jersey voters how reckless those tax-crazy Democrats can be.

BURLINGTON TOWNSHIP - It's big. It's ugly. And you haven't been there in years. No, we're not talking about a Trump casino. This morning, it is time to shed a tear over the steady demise of the Burlington Center mall, now gasping with an outdated Sears on the brink of closure. Philly.com offers an obit, of sorts, to a mall that was positively awesome in the early ...

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - To some people, lists of names and pictures of locations just create a jumble of information and a confusing mass of facts.  To Ethan Reiss, a historian from East Brunswick who is working to keep facts alive, these bits and pieces come together to form a picture of who we are based on who we were in the past.
