Niccolò Machiavelli was a Renaissance writer, an Italian politician, humanist and philosopher among many other things. He is seen as the father of modern political science and wrote the famous work known as "The Prince" in which he discusses how to obtain and preserve political power by outlining some characteristics rulers should have. Machiavelli wrote "The Prince" during his exile from Italy.
For the last few weeks, the phrase on everyone’s tongue has been gun control. Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.) of district 12 New Jersey shared her views on gun control, the obstacles faced in being able to regulate it and her stance and hopes as she greeted and answered questions from students who showed up to her town hall in the East Brunswick Community Center. Coleman shared her agenda and had a panel of speakers, which included Colonel Patrick J. Callahan, the superintendent of the New Jersey State police. Many students filled the seats of the auditorium and eventually lined up to ask the congresswoman questions, and she gratefully thanked them for their questions and answered each one asked.
In the past century, American workers used to work six days of the week. That changed in 1940, when the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 introduced the 40-hour work week. Those 40 hours were split into 8 hours within a span of five days. I believe that it is time to implement a three-day weekend versus the two-day weekend we now have within the United States. Unlike many European countries, we only get limited vacation days, approximately 15 days, versus the majority of Europe, which receives approximately 30 days. Within this article I will be discussing the benefits of a three-day weekend, the long term affects and why even the three-day weekend just simply is not enough.
After the recent election of President Donald J. Trump, a lot of citizens have begun to more actively question the two-party political system within the United States. The Democrats and Republicans are out for blood, disregarding their main purpose, to serve the American people. I write today in hopes to enlighten all readers that reforming the Constitution and the political system of the United States does not mean the end of our country.
How can college students make time to focus on our goals amid a busy semester? The answer is simple, but often ignored: time management. Time management is simply scheduling and pacing yourself, from when you work out, to when you study, to what time you can hang out with your friends and family. While this doesn’t sound too difficult, without practicing correct time management, there is the possibility of crumbling under pressure. However, once you get into the momentum and find a balance, it will become habitual and carry through your entire life, not just your college career.
In the modern technological age, we don’t see many students writing in notebooks anymore, but rather typing away and multitasking on their laptops. As we see this increase in technology, more and more people will lean away from using pen and paper. In this article I will not be defending the use of paper (as we can write on tablets in pen form or use different reusable paper alternatives), but instead the importance of daily writing in a notebook.
How awkward would it be if adults acted, dressed, and attended highs school? Exactly, it just doesn’t work. If adult actors continue to play roles that should be played by teens, the teens who view this shows will continue to subconsciously be negatively affected. The fact that the adult actors are normally fully grown, acne free, fitter than the average 14-18-year-old student causes the perception of what a teenager to look like to become skewed.
College is what you make of it. College rankings play a crucial role in why incoming first-years choose the institution they do.
Ah yes, the SAT — also known as the Saddening Analytical Torment. Well, it actually stands for the Scholastic Aptitude Test, but you get the picture.
RU Rah Rah? No, I’m seriously curious, are you "RU Rah Rah?" yet, or do you still need time to adjust being back in school?
