I used to be in the habit of checking 10 different news websites as soon as I woke up — a method of staying updated with the world as I would argue to myself. The Internet, newspapers and television were happy to oblige and continue their supply of rage-inducing headlines.

Everyone thinks studying abroad is just a bunch of fun and games — you go abroad where you’re the legal drinking age and you can prance around cobblestone streets with no worries and travel Europe or Asia or South America, wherever you decide to go. But the truth is that studying abroad can be really scary, and a lot of people don't realize that.
Unintended consequences are almost a trademark of government activity, and the criminal justice system is no exception. Mandatory minimums, intended as a potent weapon in the War on Drugs, have unnecessarily destroyed lives and crowded prisons.
In my last column, I discussed the why we should care about the recent dietary guidelines. I’m not sure how many of you actually ate the recommended amount of vegetables, fruits, dairy, grains and protein today, but I’m sure many of you did not. So the question is: Why do so few Americans actually follow these guidelines and eat a healthy, balanced diet?
In times of struggle to increase media representation of different backgrounds, identities and experiences, we still have a very long way to go. We like to think we've come so far and then reality waits around every unexpected corner to swiftly slap us in the face.

During the month of February, store windows displays change to different hues of red, with heart-shaped products, greeting cards, chocolates and roses reminding us that Valentine’s Day is coming soon and reminding people in romantic relationships that their pockets better be ready.
In Black History Month, we reflect on lessons of leadership from black revolutionaries. We celebrate the lives and legacies of Sojourner Truth, James Baldwin, Dorothy Height, Martin Luther King, Jr. and many more of the powerful black figures in American history.

In October, an NJ Transit spokesperson warned that without an extension of a federal train safety deadline, the agency would no longer be able to run trains. This would be paralyzing.
Reparations for blacks to repair the accumulated injuries from centuries of enslavement and institutionalized racism have moved toward the center of public discourse in recent months. With the Black Lives Matter movement and the fact that a black family (indeed, through the lineage of First Lady Michelle Obama, a descendent of slaves) now resides in the White House, Americans have had to confront our country’s racist past and present in oftentimes difficult and visceral ways.
Rutgers—New Brunswick is being faced with the possibility of becoming the only Big Ten school without a student newspaper within the coming year. But before brushing this off, let’s take a minute to reflect on why the Targum is needed on campus.
In the early 1970s, the fraternity brothers of Zeta Beta Tau (ZBT) began sponsoring Rutgers University Dance Marathon.

“It is our duty now to begin to lay the plans and determine the strategy for the winning of lasting peace and the establishment of an American standard of living … We cannot be content, no matter how high that general standard of living may be, if some fraction of our people … is ill-fed, ill-clothed, ill-housed and insecure.” The latter quote seems to be the rallying cry of the ever-popular Sen.
