If you have even the slightest, most minute idea of what is happening in the world around you, you must know of the devastatingly tragic events that are taking place in Syria. And the worst part is that some people are becoming so accustomed to seeing videos of the demise of citizens in Syria — men, women and children alike. Passing a moment of sympathy is all that is felt before scrolling on to something else. But this is not the case with everyone.
The Athletics Department is not the only program at Rutgers that is going to see future improvements. After being put to a vote by the University’s Board of Governors on Thursday, Rutgers has approved an investment of $17 million for a new performing arts center in the Downtown New Brunswick. This investment will go toward the partial ownership of this performing arts center, which will serve as a place for Mason Gross School of the Arts students to practice and rehearse. After the completion of this center, Rutgers also proposed a new musical theater program offered to University students.
As a University that has a daily newspaper, Rutgers should be extremely involved in any advancement made in the world of collegiate newspaper production. And with New Voices of New Jersey making efforts to pass a bill regarding the freedoms of college (and high school) newspapers, it seems like the perfect opportunity for Rutgers to make its voice heard.
PRIZES FOR PHILOSOPHY
A cold, refreshing Pepsi is perfect for almost any occasion — barbecues, parties and mid-work lunch. But do you know where a Pepsi does not exactly fit in? A protest — especially one lead by model Kendall Jenner.
If you’ve ever been remotely involved in anything even semi-sports related here at Rutgers University, then you’ve heard of our Athletic Director Pat Hobbs. And if you’ve paid any attention to the buzz on campus lately, then you know that he’s in some pretty hot water right now.
Oftentimes, Rutgers University conducts research on topics that affect the student body and the surrounding community. And in a study that was published in the Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics, Rutgers University did exactly that.
Almost every Rutgers student has heard some kind of complaint against the choices for food that are offered at the University, and a lot of these criticisms revolve around the options provided at take-out. So, for those who are against some of Rutgers’ “grease-inclined” food choices such as chicken nuggets and hash browns, the University has some good news.
It is always weirdly "meta" when a news organization is in the news itself. So it could be alarming to see The Wall Street Journal in every headline except for its own.
Some people have argued over whether wearing leggings as pants is a fashion-do or a fashion-don’t. But recently, that is not the only debate these bottoms have been involved in. Aside from trying to claim leggings as a fashion faux-pas, United Airlines has come under fire for categorizing leggings as inappropriate clothing.
Rutgers University has a prestigious history of hosting inspirational and revolutionary speakers to share their wisdom with the students. Former President Barack Obama, Bill Nye and Toni Morrison are only some of the esteemed names on the list. But in 2011, Rutgers had something of a blip, and decided to spend $32,000 to have MTV’s former “Jersey Shore” star, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.
Looking at any social media site recently, one would notice that a disturbing headline had been popping up everywhere, indicating “14 black girls have gone missing in Washington, D.C. in a single day.” This information had been shared over 41,000 times. After this “news” had been spread, news outlets came out to clarify the truth behind the cases of the missing black girls.
WINNERS AND HEROS
Think back to when you were in the fifth grade. You were about 11 or 12 years old and you were very impressionable, like a sponge absorbing everything around you. You were exposed to things you had never learned before and your mind was expanding with new knowledge. Now imagine being that fifth grader, and upon learning about slavery, you were put on a fake auction block and "sold" off in a mock slave auction.
Being university students, any proposals or changes made to the Department of Education should be at the top of a list of concerns, and President Donald J. Trump’s plans for his 2018 fiscal spending proposal is definitely a concern.
With over 81 million videos on its site, YouTube has become the go-to medium for videos. Ranging from music videos to vlogs, YouTube is the hub for both copyrighted material as well as original content from everyday people. It has become another universal method of uniting people, and making the world seem like a smaller place.
Since its earliest-known case in 1959, HIV/AIDS has killed about 39 million people. And although this disease is universally known, not many people know exactly what HIV actually is. HIV is a virus that can lead to the infection that is called AIDS. AIDS, which is an acronym for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, is the actual condition that is developed after HIV causes damage to the immune system. But despite a large majority of people who are unaware of the true definition and difference between HIV and AIDS, it is no secret that this disease is dangerous. With AIDS being the eighth leading cause of death for people between the ages of 25 and 34, the gravity of its detrimental effects are not lost on anyone.
Ever since the Women’s March on Washington on Jan. 21, the world has been waiting to see what women would do to follow up on the protest that seemed to foreshadow a movement. And with yesterday being International Women’s Day (also known as "Women's Day"), it seems as though the world may have gotten its answer.
The female sexuality is under attack. And this attack was partly concentrated within the United States Marine Corps and its recent scandal.
Ben Carson recently stepped out into his official position as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Part of his job description is providing assistance for those with low-incomes, aiding in the creation of fair housing laws, handling homelessness, mandating house ownership and most importantly, as the name implies, overseeing housing development. Many people (for the right reasons) felt as though Carson was not fit for this position. Besides the fact that Carson was a neurosurgeon, he has previously voiced his beliefs that the government cannot be of much assistance to those in need. He even stated that trusting the government in issues of low-income assistance is “downright dangerous.” To make things more unsettling, Carson himself, although growing up in poverty, had never lived in public housing or had governmental assistance for housing. To top it all off, Carson has publicly said he feels that poverty is “really more of a choice.” But this is relatively old news now, and just as most of the nation suggests we do with President Donald J. Trump, perhaps giving Carson a chance and considering his present actions rather than his past ones is the way to go about the situation. Except, Carson’s recent actions are no better. In fact, his words while speaking to HUD employees might be even worse.
