Edward Romano, a School of Arts and Sciences senior majoring in history and political science, died suddenly on Sept. 30. He was beloved by fellow students, faculty and staff in both departments, along with the Eagleton Institute of Politics, history club, Rutgers University Democrats and a variety of other groups. Ed got involved — that’s what he did.
Wow, it is hard to know where to begin with the piece written by Mr. Jonathan Finnerty.Laden with inaccuracy — the facts being too rich for his taste — the article published on Friday is a severely misinformed, hardly philosophical rant. Though there is much I could write, I will reduce my comments to two simple points.
Unfortunately, in the last century the narrative of Jewish-Muslim relations has been marred by episodes of violence and hate. Ignored by many, however, is that both religions derive from the same source: Abrahamic monotheism. Therefore Judaism and Islam are not related just functionally — as are all faiths — but share a mutual history, hence the two religions need not to be seen as adversaries but more like siblings, the spiritual children of Ishmael (Muslims) and Isaac (Jews).
To the Rutgers Community:My grandfather, Antonio, left Naples for Newark in 1902. He arrived on Garside Street with $20 and determination.
Did you know that of the 57,080 individuals that call New Brunswick home, 26 percent identify as Mexican? According to restauranteur Andrew Schiff, that means that within the next 30 days, there will be about 14,840 Mexican New Brunswick residents who will FINALLY be able to get their hands on the “true flavors” of “real Mexican food” in New Brunswick.
After reading the Sept. 15 article on the new taco restaurant coming to New Brunswick, I felt compelled to respond. For at least 20 years now, New Brunswick has been the home to “authentic” Mexican restaurants owned and operated by residents from the Mexican states of Oaxaca and Puebla.
Dear current Rutgers students, I hope that in this letter I speak for most loyal daughter and sons.
I wanted to share with you a new Facebook group that I started as a part of a Colloquium class that I took with Dr. Julie Fagan this summer.
In the Sept. 4 letter to the editor, George Pieczenik falsely claims that Germany “never even signed a peace treaty, just an armistice” following their defeat in the Second World War. George is incorrect, and overlooks the complex and important history of the German state following their loss in 1945.
With the recent Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) agreement between Iran and the West, it seems as though, within the past decade, economic stability and integrity have become the essential concern of world leaders.
Despite Kaparot not being formally referenced in the Old Testament or Talmud, it remains a common custom among observant Jews. Occurring between the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah and the Day of the Atonement — Yom Kippur — Kaparot is a last-ditch effort to be spiritually cleansed before the start of a new year. In order for the individual to be spiritually cleansed, his or her sins are transferred to a live chicken, who is then slaughtered and donated to the poor.
RU Students named politically disengaged 9/1/15. When it comes to election season, Rutgers faculty and student groups always put together an impressive coalition effort to make sure folks know when the voter registration deadline is and where their polling places are come Election Day.
The Marshall Plan was conceived to rescue Europe, specifically Germany — a vanquished foe, which never even signed a peace treaty but just an armistice — from the ravages of World War II.
I have chosen to respond to Steven Keller’s article,"Bigots who targeted Obama for race will target Clinton's gender," by offering a sobering view of why there is so much opposition to President Obama and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Keller attempts to make the point, that critical political conversion is scarce, which he does well.
For 15 years, Rutgers has been my home. We all have our personal struggles, but I’m not going to talk about those, because we all do have them. What I’m here to tell you is how poor Rutgers’ image has become among those that work here.
In light of the ban on fraternity and sorority parties, the greek community at Rutgers needs to reconsider some of its fundamental values. Some would observe the death of Caitlyn Kovacs in September and blame alcohol alone, but demonization of a substance is easy, and ignores the larger context and social issue at hand.
Ready, set, go! Now, all of the racists that have poured out their vitriol on our first black president, simply because he is black, can now turn their hate machines toward sexist, anti-woman venom, since Hillary Clinton is in the race.
Take the deal with Iran or go to war with Iran: That is the choice. If what is being gained in 10 years to further mend our relationship with Iran and negotiate another treaty, which will extend the nuclear weapon ban again and again. The breakout time for the Iranians to make a nuclear weapon will go from two months to over a year. If we reject this agreement, Iran is free to become a nuclear weapon country, which Israel will not allow, even if we do.
Rutgers management is trying to discriminate against its staff employees. If you want to understand income inequality, how it works and how the seeds of it are planted, look no further than contract negotiations going on at Rutgers. Management just signed a contract with the faculty union granting it special protections in the areas of health insurance and raises. They are trying to deny these same protections to staff.
The letter written by Elizabeth Daoud both criticizes the Israeli government for its treatment of Palestinian Christians and chides Christians United for Israel for its support of this key democratic stronghold surrounded by autocratic governments. Her letter is filled with misstatements, and her ire seems misguided.
