The overall number of reported rapes and sexual assaults at New Jersey’s four-year institutions of higher education has risen in recent years. The number of rapes reported increased a relatively hefty 24 percent from 2015 to 2016, according to NJ Advance Media. Additionally, cases of unwanted fondling and dating violence rose 46 percent and 13 percent respectively. At Rutgers — New Brunswick, though, such reports have actually slightly decreased.
Saturday marked the one year anniversary of President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration, so let us take a look at his presidency from a conservative perspective — though please note, I did not vote for Trump.
The daily revelations of unmasked sexual deviants has left Hollywood tense and uneasy. For decades, the film industry has been rife with perverts and pedophiles, and it has been fueled by the complacent and avaricious nobility of Tinseltown. The 2018 Golden Globes, distinguished by women adorned in black who ignited the #TimesUp movement, demonstrates the prevalent, potent arrogance and hypocrisy of liberal hollywood elites.
Like all social revolutions, while the #MeToo movement has garnered great support, it still succumbs to great controversy. While this bold stance against sexual assault perpetrated by famous, untouchable figures is admirable, it also calls into question how to deal with sexual misconduct allegations when the most that can oftentimes be done is unfairly pit one person’s words against the other’s. The #MeToo story is one of female empowerment, but could it also be a story of a story that, in retrospect, can be compared to the Salem Witch Trials? With new allegations erupting daily, the #MeToo movement is at the precipice of mutation, which can be detrimental to its legacy.
Rutgers alumnus Jim Simos founded an organization that decorates wreaths on the graves of deceased Rutgers alumni who were U.S. military veterans.
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.
As we begin the spring 2018 semester with new year’s resolutions in tow, our goals and desires will be challenged due to our increasingly busy schedules. Those who have decided to improve their health might start to feel like they no longer have time to exercise or cook healthier meals. In reality, there is time for whatever you want to make time for.
Earlier in the week, Aziz Ansari came under fire due to an article published in babe magazine. The title was, “I went on a date with Aziz Ansari. It turned into the worst night of my life.” The story, documenting the date between Ansari and pseudonym-ed “Grace”, quickly became popular, eventually even gleaning a response from Ansari himself. Grace and Ansari have both received criticism for their actions as recounted in the article.
All Americans technically have the ability to take hold of the American Dream, but it is no secret that some are in a better position to do so than others. Juggling school, work and resume boosters with the aim of future success can be a struggle, especially given the cost of attaining a degree in this day and age, and the University knows this. That is why effective Jan. 1, the Rutgers administration raised the minimum wage for student workers from $8.44 to $11 an hour — about a 30 percent increase.
West Ham United isn’t the most popular club in the top-flight of English football and seldom garners attention from the small number of international soccer fans in the States. But if you’re from Essex or the East End, like I am, then you likely support the Hammers and have been following this season’s triumphs and laments weekly. The season has been so mixed in terms of results and performances that it’s difficult to assess West Ham’s capabilities and how long the team’s new found success will take them.
At the end of his term, Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) had a 15 percent approval rating — the worst in New Jersey gubernatorial history. Yesterday, Phil Murphy was sworn into office as the state’s 56th governor, which to many has come as a breath of fresh air. While the reasoning behind Christie’s atrocious ratings is probably a combination of multiple different things, a significant factor was likely his close affiliation with President Donald J. Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign. While the Republican party still has dominant representation with all three branches of the federal government, we can see that after the Democratic wins here in New Jersey as well as in Virginia and Alabama, other state and local governments may follow suit in their midterm elections.
Sunday, December 12 marked the 70th anniversary of Human Rights Day, which is celebrated annually and internationally. To commemorate the observance, many government, non-governmental, civil and social organizations host cultural events and exhibitions that are human-rights orientated.
Hello again, Rutgers. Whether you’re just starting as a new student here, or you’re a veteran Daily Targum reader, thanks for clicking or picking up a copy of the paper on this first day of the Spring semester.
The relatively recent ousting of Harvey Weinstein as a sexual abuser has been followed by an incredible movement, bringing up a new and important conversation about sexual harassment in the United States. Unfortunately and unsurprisingly, it seems that sexual misconduct is just as prevalent in academic settings as it is in every other field.
Last Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court — by the Trump Administration’s request — ordered the lifting of an injunction by a federal appeals court, which was previously preventing the third version of the “travel ban” executive order from going into full effect. Now the ban, which includes more extreme vetting capabilities of refugees and the barring of people coming from eight nations — Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad, some groups from Venezuela and North Korea — can be fully implemented.
At the beginning of October and after the summer of health care havoc, I almost wrote a column about how funding was near expiration for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and how Congress would need to take action before the deadline on that measure.
When it comes to recognition and representation, women are infamously lacking in all fields. Even institutions that dedicate themselves to awarding and recognizing influential community members, such as the Nobel Foundation, are found to be misinformed and seemingly biased. From the fields of physics, chemistry, economics, literature, medicine and peace, the Nobel Prize has been awarded to 881 people in the past 115 years. Merely 48 out of the 881 recognitions were awarded to women, while the rest went to men.
Last Wednesday, another round of white nationalistic flyers was found on George Street. The flyers were directed at white Americans and urged them to fulfill their "civic duty" by reporting all "illegal aliens" to Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. While the suggestion to report people for being in this country illegally is in itself not necessarily racist, the last statement on the flyers read, “AMERICA IS A WHITE NATION,” and on the bottom left corner "bloodandsoil.org" was printed, which is a website for an organization called Patriot Front that advocates for today’s white nationalist movement.
Many of us may have spent the weekend in the company of family. One’s family plays a substantial role in the early shaping of one’s mindset. One’s mindset affects one’s worldview. For example, the way I think about the occurrence of a sunrise and the qualities it displays impacts the way I think about the relationship between the sunrise and my own existence. My understanding of the existence of everything and anything in the universe is directly related to my grasp of my own position and purpose within the world. The language my parents may have used in referring to phenomena in the world will then have influenced the context of how I make sense of my existence.
Since allegations of numerous instances of sexual misconduct arose in early October against famed Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, a wave of additional accusations against other well-known public figures has come out, detailing the perverted nature of many of those in positions of power and authority within our society.
