If you’re in the know, you’re familiar with the vibrant and historic do-it-yourself (DIY) music scene that exists here at Rutgers. Week in and week out, there are shows held by students that run the musical gamut of hard rock, funk, punk, rap and more. Raucous, passionate and bold, there’s an egalitarian quality to playing for and among your peers. The stage is never a vaunted platform, increasing the distance between audience and performer. In a New Brunswick basement, the artists are front and center, live and direct.
In a report from Business First yesterday morning, Rutgers was ranked as the 23rd-best national public college out of more than 500 institutions.
As active citizens, we support causes close to our hearts and our communities. As Americans, we participate in a democratic process that we are privileged to enjoy. But, when our loyalty as Americans is called into question for supporting a strong relationship between America and Israel — a cause that is rooted in mutual values — we are alarmed. When we are gaslighted for daring to call out this reckless bullying, our community of advocates is accused of “moneyed influence.” In a recent commentary by an organization here at our University, our community of advocates was libelously accused of just that.
Focus: the word you repeat to yourself as you feel like you are dozing off while trying to complete your work. According to a study by Microsoft, “The average human has an 8-second attention span — less than that of a goldfish.” There are plenty of reasons why we have such a low attention span, some of which include the multiple facets of your job or school, the advancement of technology and the growth of social media.
There is no shortage of dystopian fiction in the modern day world. Every bookstore, every library and every nightstand is host to some sort of desolate, oppressive world made of ink. The stories are as diverse as they are plentiful, with new, convoluted societies in every one. In fact, the market for such novels has become so oversaturated that people have even begun to scorn the genre as “basic” and “mundane.” And yet, year after year, it maintains its popularity. Sure, it comes in waves, but nevertheless, dystopian fiction has never and probably will never go completely out of style.

The tenure of President Donald J. Trump administration’s Department of Education has been marked by sporadic flurries of negative news coverage and national scrutiny. From Senate confirmation hearings to over two years in the position, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has represented the worst of corporate capitalism and its undemocratic, un-American crusade against public education.

At a time where the sensible world is waiting for some director to say the word “Cut!”, we still live in some denial that this is all a television show, and our reality star President Donald J. Trump is simply attempting to put the Kardashians' ratings to shame. In our most recent episode, the Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigation — a recurring theme throughout our past two seasons — came to a disappointing conclusion for many. What Democrats do not seem to realize, though, is that they now have a chance to end the show. But they are not taking it.
Last summer, I interned at a Republican congressional office and every day I would take calls from people who were genuinely angry that President Donald J. Trump had colluded with Russia. These people, in their bones, believed that Trump was a traitor. Why? Because the media told them so.

Jordan Peele’s new film, "Us,” is a terrifying plunge into a philosophical manifestation of human imagination. Like his debut, “Get Out,” “Us” is a horror film with deeper meanings, Easter eggs and is ripe for fan theories. While “Get Out” focused on race specifically, “Us” widens its scope to America, and, in the words of writer-director-producer Jordan Peele, “the most terrifying thing … the self.”
