A successful football team can mean a lot for a university, and this past Saturday was a great day for Rutgers football team. The squad triumphed over Texas State with a great student section turnout — which hopefully set the pace for the rest of the season. Last season, crowd attendance at Rutgers football games decreased 11.3 percent from 2016. Being that Rutgers football is far from being the most lively or well-attended football program in the Big Ten to begin with, a further decrease would be painful.
The Rutgers Police Department (RUPD) is investigating an aggravated assault, which was reported to have occurred on Tuesday, Sept. 4, at approximately 1:00 a.m. on Easton Avenue near Courtland Street, according to a crime alert.

The United States was once the destination of the finest K-12 education system in the world. The United States used to be consistently ranked in the top-three best in the overall educational rankings worldwide that highlight a mixture of reading/literacy scales, problem solving skills, science/mathematic proficiency levels and overall average scores. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) now ranks the United States as 24 in terms of high school literacy, eight in researchers and 54 in education expenditures.
Colin Kaepernick is now the face of Nike’s new “Just Do It” 30th anniversary ad campaign. A black and white image of Kaepernick’s face is the backdrop for an objectively inspiring statement — “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” But, as was likely foreseen, Nike has received backlash by many who disapprove of Kaepernick’s kneeling for the national anthem. A #NikeBoycott Twitter movement was sparked in the wake of the ad, and Nike’s stock has gone down since its release.
Pull the lever, roll the dice, play the odds. Video game loot boxes are the newest and most accessible form of gambling to date, and they have taken over the gaming community by storm. There are many advocates for and against loot boxes, but the majority of consumers seem to be perfectly happy spending hundreds of millions of dollars a year on virtual gambling.
A drug overdose epidemic has seized our country, tightening its grip and raising the numbers to alarming heights. More than 72,000 people died of drug overdoses last year, a large number of which were opioid related, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This makes the number of opioid overdoses more than five times higher than it was in 1999, merely 20 years ago. Even more terrifying is the fact that this calamity extends its effects to pregnant women who abuse painkillers during pregnancy. The CDC confirmed that from 1999 to 2014 the rate of pregnant women misusing opioids has nearly quadrupled. This is a major public health issue and many mothers do not realize that their abuse can consequently affect their children through breastfeeding.
I am not a big name at Rutgers by any stretch of the imagination. So it might seem arrogant, or at the very least unnecessary, for me to preface this column with an explanation of my personal politics. Is there a point? In this case, there are two. The first and probably more truthful reason is that it is fun to write about yourself, and I am not one to pass up the opportunity. The second and more valid reason is that this is a bizarre moment for me ideologically speaking, a reality that my op-eds will reflect.
The investigation found, and the University has ultimately decided, that Livingston’s speech in this case is not protected by the First Amendment, and that in making the post he violated the University’s Policy Prohibiting Discrimination and Harassment. On the face, social media posts of the sort in question seem to have nothing to do with the University, but upon further contemplation it seems obvious that speech like this by a University employee certainly reflects badly on the University itself as well as its mission to promote diversity, inclusion and acceptance, in which case Rutgers can rightly take action.
Rutgers is reexamining its determination that James Livingston, a professor in the Department of History, violated the University's discrimination and harassment policy following a series of racially-charged Facebook posts.
