On the first day of class each semester, I write my first name on the board: Tadzio. Then, because it’s unusual, I explain how it's pronounced, and drill my students in saying it out loud. I use their first names when addressing them, and I expect they’ll use mine when addressing me.
Hillary Rodham Clinton may be gearing up for a presidential run in 2016, but despite all the media buzz surrounding her candidacy, even the most politically active students do not actually know much about her career. In December, we conducted an unscientific survey on awareness of and youth attitudes toward Secretary Clinton as part of an Aresty project conducted under the supervision of Ruth B. Mandel.
Start looking through your closets, because the Godmother is back this year and needs your dresses. For the last three years, Our Fairy Godmother has provided numerous financially struggling girls the opportunity to attend the prom by collecting gently used gowns and selling them at affordable prices. The average price of a prom dress can run up to $170, but girls can find high quality dresses for just $20 at Our Fairy Godmother events set to begin this month.
As faculty, including teaching assistants and graduate assistants, have been negotiating their contract, which expired in August, they have begun to raise the question that the Union of Rutgers Administrators brought up after the 2010 salary freeze: has the administration “got ethics?” You may have seen “Reclaim Rutgers” signs hanging up on faculty doors. Maybe you have seen the American Association of University Professors and the American Federation of Teachers rallying or tabling at the campus center.
After listening to Rutgers University Student Assembly Parliamentarian Samuel Clark present on the bill that would grant RUSA executive board members a stipend for their dedication, I would like to apologize for the offense I caused and correct my misconceptions. Last Thursday, I wrote an article falsely accusing RUSA members of neglecting their responsibilities and trying to take funds intended to help students.
Rutgers is getting more selective! I wonder if I would be accepted now? I graduated from Livingston College in 1976 after serving in the U.S. Navy from 1969 to 1975. I wonder how many students are aware of the Vietnam War Memorial outside Scott Hall? I wonder how many of that group stop and view the names on the Memorial?
When advocating for his bill that would pay certain members of RUSA, Sam Clark, who serves as RUSA's parliamentarian, argued that money for his proposal would not come from student fees and would not negatively affect other student organizations.
Rutgers requires that I install spyware on my personal computer that will allow an outside company to watch me through my webcam, record my knuckles, photograph my student ID including my RUID number and view my files as I use my computer to take an online exam.
This past Sunday, the Islamic State issued a video showing its militants beheading 21 Coptic Christians in Libya.
This Thursday, Rutgers University Student Assembly is voting on a bill to provide salaries to the RUSA e-board, and of course, the people who actually can vote are the people hoping to receive the money. The executive board of RUSA would like to ensure that RUSA money is spent on themselves. If you oppose this, come to the RUSA meeting Thursday at 8 p.m. in the Student Activities Center on the College Avenue campus.
In response to the finely reported article, “Class Divide Exacerbates Strain among Students,” written in The Daily Targum last week, I would like to offer observations after working at Rutgers as an advisor, teacher and dean for many years.
In elementary school, Valentine’s Day week was synonymous with red cutout hearts made from construction paper, taped up with candy that my then-7-year-old classmates would distribute. It was all innocent fun until our teacher would say: “Take out your gifts and count them, kids.”
I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed. Actually, scratch that. I am both angry and disappointed, as well as extremely frustrated.
Margarita Rosario wrote an opinion piece this week entitled “Feminizing porn: voyeurism, sexuality as seen in erotica,” and I’m very glad she did. It’s important to open up this conversation and not shove it under the rug or treat it as a taboo. In her piece, she mentions that there is a growing demand for feminist porn that fosters consent, better working conditions and showcases different types of people than whom are typically seen in mainstream porn.
I write to thank the Department of French for the roundtable “Charlie Hebdo: Facts and Questions” it organized on Thursday, Feb.
Should established scientific and journalistic practices be ignored in favor of emotionalism and moral panic? The Targum apparently believes they should, evident by the front page news story, “Alumna conducts city “manslamming” test.”
It’s no secret that many members of the Rutgers community are rightfully upset over Andrew Getraer’s baseless and offensive comments, but the fact that he has supporters who not only defend his statements, but mimic his ignorant stereotyping without any repercussions is ridiculous.
The article that was run in the Targum on Feb. 5 concerning “manslamming” might as well have been called “manbashing.” The article seeks to portray men as entitled and careless of others in an experiment that was clearly agenda driven.
Andrew Getraer’s agreement with the proposal of sending Palestinians to Jordan because “it is not their homeland anyway” is both deeply offensive and historically inaccurate.
This week, Chancellor Richard Edwards wrote a letter to the editor to The Daily Targum condemning hate speech and reiterating that the Rutgers community must respect and value the diversity of the campus. While I agree with his sentiments, I’m concerned as to why the Muslim community still hasn’t heard directly from Andrew Getraer.
