On January 16, Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.) actualized a long-awaited progressive campaign promise from the November midterms: an incremental raise of the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2024. Emboldened by support from the cruxes of House and Senate Democratic leadership — Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) — Scott dubbed his bill the “Raise the Wage Act of 2019.”

The Saudi-induced, U.S.-backed hell faced by the Yemeni population represents the worst humanitarian crisis in the world — an act perhaps matched only in shame by the lack of attention a free press like our own decides to allocate toward covering it. The Saudi assault has been carried out via military strikes that have resulted in at the deaths of at least 18,000 civilians — this, while increasingly tightening their grip on the economic stranglehold they have Yemen wrapped in, puts just about its entire population at risk of severe famine.
Just yesterday I went to visit an old high school friend — let us call her Jazz — who dorms on Cook. As I walked through her apartment, I was hit with a spectrum of scents — some old food, some incredibly nauseating and some that were hard to identify. After I got over the initial shock, I asked about the unfamiliar smells and Jazz replied they were from the vast selection of protein powders and performance enhancers that littered her counters.
When the final whistle of the 2018 season blew in Madison, Wisconsin, the Rutgers men's soccer team found itself in a familiar position on the wrong end of a 6-3 scoreline against Wisconsin. The loss eliminated them from the Big Ten Tournament, putting the final nail in an abysmal 4-13-1 campaign.
By my very unscientific estimation, the actual athletic feats on display only account for roughly 30 percent of the near-religious fervor surrounding the world of professional sports. The other 70 percent is the never-ending editorialization, narrative-building and dialogue that surrounds the various leagues. The world's greatest athletes, in order to sustain their place in history, need a character arc, a story.
The Rutgers tennis team captured its first Big Ten road win this past weekend against Nebraska on Sunday, but was unable to defeat Iowa on Friday.
Screens are all around us. We carry them in our pockets, wear them on our wrists and stare at them in a content binge. Our lives revolve around our devices. We use smartphones for seemingly every task we encounter. Whether that’s reading a news article, endlessly scrolling through photos of acquaintances, messaging a loved one, finding a date, listening to music – oh, and getting to our destination. We have become tethered to our phones. They are an extension of human capability, aiding us through daily tasks but also shifting the entire human paradigm. Should we be staring at our glass displays all day, every day or should there be some limits?
Everyone finds pleasure in different things — some people find their passion in dance, food or books, but I found mine in fashion. Fashion combines so many art forms in one: movement, architecture and, of course, visual and design. Following fashion and the business of fashion has become more than just a passtime for me, it’s a passion.
This past weekend in Columbus, Ohio, the Rutgers softball team faced off against Ohio State. The weekend began with a 2-0 loss to the Buckeyes (23-11, 7-2).
After leaving his village in Colonial America, Rip Van Winkle wandered up into the Catskill Mountains. Fatigued from his climb, he sits down to rest and fell into a long slumber. Rip awoke to a new world 20 years later. The longevity of his sleep has become the most memorable element in Washington Irving’s classic fable. Few readers recall a small but significant detail that is often overlooked and forgotten.
This weekend, I was plagued with a constant sneezing which reached a point that it almost felt rude for me to sneeze a fourth time after my friends had said “God bless you” three times before. Never in my life had I received such a bad case of sneezing. In fact, I had rarely sneezed up until this emerging spring. Now it is part of my daily lifestyle. I had not planned on writing about it, but while researching topics for my opinion editorial I came across the finding that climate change may be prolonging the allergy season. It was quite dreadful news.
