The American Association of University Professors-American Federation of Teachers (AAUP-AFT) has planned a demonstration for this coming Friday, Sept. 21 to continue the fight for a $15 minimum wage. The #FightFor15 movement has been a hot point of controversy on campus between student-activists and the University in recent years, and this year is expected to be no different. Last December, members of United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS) pushed past a line of police officers blockading a Board of Governors meeting chanting, “We work, we sweat, put that 15 on our set.”
The American prison system is analogous to what happens when a teenager says they will clean their room when really, they are just stuffing their closet and hoping nothing falls out. It is an utter mess that is continuing to pile up with no end solution in thought. There are currently more than 2.2 million people that are currently in U.S. jails or prisons, the highest prison population in the entire world, and according to the Prison Policy Initiative/U.S Census Bureau, the population of those in prison and jail would result in the fourth largest city in America. That statistic leaves out those who are under correctional control, probation or parole meaning that the number could realistically be millions more.
This past weekend I had the privilege of being able to try out the open beta test for Call of Duty Blackout on PC. In case you do not know, Call of Duty Blackout is a new battle royale-style game mode releasing with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 in October. The concepts and tactics for the game mode mirror those used for Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG). Eighty-five players in the beta (100 players in the full version of the game) parachute out of a helicopter while it is flying over a large map. Once you have landed, you have to collect equipment to use for survival, such as ammunition, medical-kits and weapons. The map shrinks over time, and the goal of the game is to be the final one alive.

The contracts agreed upon between the University and Rutgers’ faculty union, the American Association of University Professors-American Federation of Teachers (AAUP-AFT), expired this past July, but a number of faculty members still remain without a new contract. That is not to say that our professors are not getting paid — they are — but negotiations are ongoing, and faculty members have not received raises or adjustments in salary based on cost of living.
It is no slur, nor do I believe that it is too much of a generalization, to say that avid consumers of The New York Times, The Washington Post and other organs of the liberal, cosmopolitan consensus tend to make up a large part of the managerial class that formulates and enacts policy in our nation. Ideally, these periodicals can serve as valuable tools for educating a governing class in public policy issues of the day. Unfortunately, our fonts of elite journalism have increasingly become the sights of elite conspiracy-theorizing, where respected journalists and political analysts debase themselves daily in pursuit of a narrative balm to soothe the scars that President Donald J. Trump’s election has inflicted on the managerial class’s psyche. I am talking, of course, about the Russian Meddling story.
If you were to take a stroll from the College Avenue Student Center all the way to Scott Hall, I guarantee you will notice several of your fellow students whipping out their small, sleek, USB-like devices, to take an inhale and release a cloud of smoke. It seems like e-smoking has become a ubiquitous activity as many of us either personally use e-cigarettes or know others that do.
