Rutgers University is not an anomaly in the face of starvation in the United States. “There is this joke, ‘oh the starving college student who goes to things for free food.’ It is not a joke at all. It is very serious. And it is very real,” said Lauren Errickson, who oversees the Rutgers Against Hunger (RAH) initiative.
When the teaser trailer for the live-action adaption of "The Lion King" dropped two weeks ago on Thanksgiving, fans of the original animated film certainly felt grateful for Disney and could hardly hold back their excitement for 2019. Many were moved when they heard the voice of James Earl Jones — the actor who voiced Mufasa in Disney's 1994 film — echo over the surreal visuals of wildlife in African grasslands and Pride Rock: “Everything the light touches is our kingdom.” This particular dialogue is not only touching and nostalgic, but also subtly parallels Disney’s monopoly over the entertainment industry today as it continues to explore the world of animation and live-action movies.
On Tuesday, Rutgers Cinema hosted a free early screening of Mimi Leder’s new film, “On the Basis of Sex.” The movie, set to be released this holiday season, follows a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she grows from college professor to American icon.

As the holiday season and winter break approaches, Rutgers reminds students to also take care of their health and get vaccinations for the upcoming flu season.
As far as economic policy is concerned, the American ideological compass has become frustratingly one-dimensional and inflexible. As income and wealth inequality have risen to levels not seen in nearly a century, the Left has cried foul, proposing numerous solutions to reduce inequality, typically through income transfers to those at the bottom or various regulations. Simultaneously, while conservative elites have rallied against what they perceive as burdensome economic regulations, they have also sought to justify any market outcomes and portray attempts to question or alter them as immoral and greedy.
In the shadow of recent President Donald J. Trump-land chaos, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos proposed a new federal policy that gives more freedoms to those accused of sexual assault on college campuses, be they men or women, citing that former President Barack Obama-era regulations “lacked basic elements of fairness.”

On the night of Jan. 23, 2018, networks of organizations and members of various communities took to the streets of New Jersey with Monarch Housing Associates to conduct the 2018 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count of homeless men, women and children across the state’s 21 counties. The 2018 report counted 9,303 homeless people on that night, which was a 9 percent increase from the 2017 report. This increase was smaller than the reported increase from 2016 to 2017, which was 20 percent, but still undeniably disheartening.
Recent Rutgers research has found that a parasite known to cause emphysema may also be an important tool in managing the disease.
The end is near. Well, the end of the semester at least. In a few weeks, choosing to chill out and watch a movie won’t feel like a shameful act of procrastination, because we’ll actually be on break. To help prepare for a month of leisure time, it might be worth checking out what’s new on Netflix this month. Here are four programs that'll surely keep you occupied over break.

Over time, the fashion industry has gradually become much more inclusive. Representation has been a prominent issue within fashion, but today’s brands are now deciding that it is finally time for diversity. Models are no longer your standard tall and thin — they come in all races, shapes and sizes. Those in charge of brands are starting to diversify as well. Black designers are becoming more influential, whether it be through becoming the head of already established fashion houses or creating their own brands. These designers are changing fashion as we know it and have now become some of the most powerful in the industry.

Residents of New Jersey feel no pride for their state, obviously. Other than the Liberty Science Center, the Jersey Shore and the old-timey diners, there is nothing much redeeming about the state. The only remotely interesting thing about New Jersey is ranking No. 1 out of all U.S. states for bad drivers.
Our dear University has found itself in the news over the past few months. No, not because of our unfortunate athletics record or the unreliability of the bus system, but because of its policies with free speech. From the investigation of James Livingston, a professor in the Department of History, for a Facebook post to the deplatforming of a University-sponsored talk, it is clear that Rutgers problems with free speech are endemic to the great amount of ambiguity and interpretation of present speech codes. Though this might seem to be too complicated to resolve, the University of Chicago’s Report of the Committee on Freedom of Expression has already provided us with a format for the formal commitment that, "guarantees all members of the University community the broadest possible latitude to speak, write, listen, challenge and learn." In response to these recent controversies, the current administration should adopt the so-called “Chicago Statement” to bolster First Amendment protections on campus and facilitate a vibrant culture centered around the free exchange of ideas.
