The holiday season is here, and that means eating all that we can without limits. One of the best side effects of the holidays is the endless amount of food that comes with it. From Christmas to Hanukkah, the wintertime means coming together and what better way to celebrate than around the table enjoying a turkey or pie? But excessive food always comes with a cost, one that comes at the waistline.
This Saturday, the Rutgers women’s basketball team makes its way to Boston, Mass. for its first game of December against Harvard (4-5). The Scarlet Knights (5-3) are 1-3 away from the Rutgers Athletics Center (RAC) and will be playing their fifth game on the road.
If you truly want to witness how capable humans are of distorting their own realities, succumbing to subjective and ungrounded notions and diminishing their own rational thoughts, simply take a psychology class. One of the biggest areas of research within the psychology community, particularly in the field of social psychology, is the prevalence of cognitive biases, which refers to the “systematic ways in which the context and framing of information influence individuals’ judgment and decision-making.”
Born in this nation of promise and progress, civic and political power are inalienable birthrights that require provision and nurturing. Yet they are placed in the hands of some and beyond reach for others. Institutions of learning are designed to be the grand guardians of democracy, wielding education as a great leveler of inequities. They function as ladders descending down to those born into circumstances beyond their control, ready for their ascension. Yet “our education system routinely fails urban, rural, low-income and minority students,” according to The Civic Mission of Schools.
Over six days, the Rutgers men’s basketball team played against Miami on the road, came back home to play then-No. 9 Michigan State on short rest and traveled back on the road to face No. 12 Wisconsin.

Rutgers University is not an anomaly in the face of starvation in the United States. “There is this joke, ‘oh the starving college student who goes to things for free food.’ It is not a joke at all. It is very serious. And it is very real,” said Lauren Errickson, who oversees the Rutgers Against Hunger (RAH) initiative.
When the teaser trailer for the live-action adaption of "The Lion King" dropped two weeks ago on Thanksgiving, fans of the original animated film certainly felt grateful for Disney and could hardly hold back their excitement for 2019. Many were moved when they heard the voice of James Earl Jones — the actor who voiced Mufasa in Disney's 1994 film — echo over the surreal visuals of wildlife in African grasslands and Pride Rock: “Everything the light touches is our kingdom.” This particular dialogue is not only touching and nostalgic, but also subtly parallels Disney’s monopoly over the entertainment industry today as it continues to explore the world of animation and live-action movies.
On Tuesday, Rutgers Cinema hosted a free early screening of Mimi Leder’s new film, “On the Basis of Sex.” The movie, set to be released this holiday season, follows a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she grows from college professor to American icon.

As far as economic policy is concerned, the American ideological compass has become frustratingly one-dimensional and inflexible. As income and wealth inequality have risen to levels not seen in nearly a century, the Left has cried foul, proposing numerous solutions to reduce inequality, typically through income transfers to those at the bottom or various regulations. Simultaneously, while conservative elites have rallied against what they perceive as burdensome economic regulations, they have also sought to justify any market outcomes and portray attempts to question or alter them as immoral and greedy.
In the shadow of recent President Donald J. Trump-land chaos, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos proposed a new federal policy that gives more freedoms to those accused of sexual assault on college campuses, be they men or women, citing that former President Barack Obama-era regulations “lacked basic elements of fairness.”

On the night of Jan. 23, 2018, networks of organizations and members of various communities took to the streets of New Jersey with Monarch Housing Associates to conduct the 2018 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count of homeless men, women and children across the state’s 21 counties. The 2018 report counted 9,303 homeless people on that night, which was a 9 percent increase from the 2017 report. This increase was smaller than the reported increase from 2016 to 2017, which was 20 percent, but still undeniably disheartening.
Recent Rutgers research has found that a parasite known to cause emphysema may also be an important tool in managing the disease.
