Many schools pride themselves on having a diverse student body, but when looking at their higher levels of education, this image is not the same. Student diversity has become an advertisement that feeds into the needs of substantial change.

Emboldened by support from the cruxes of House and Senate Democratic leadership — Sen.

The Saudi-induced, U.S.-backed hell faced by the Yemeni population represents the worst humanitarian crisis in the world — an act perhaps matched only in shame by the lack of attention a free press like our own decides to allocate toward covering it. The Saudi assault has been carried out via military strikes that have resulted in at the deaths of at least 18,000 civilians — this, while increasingly tightening their grip on the economic stranglehold they have Yemen wrapped in, puts just about its entire population at risk of severe famine.
Just yesterday I went to visit an old high school friend — let us call her Jazz — who dorms on Cook. As I walked through her apartment, I was hit with a spectrum of scents — some old food, some incredibly nauseating and some that were hard to identify. After I got over the initial shock, I asked about the unfamiliar smells and Jazz replied they were from the vast selection of protein powders and performance enhancers that littered her counters.
When the final whistle of the 2018 season blew in Madison, Wisconsin, the Rutgers men's soccer team found itself in a familiar position on the wrong end of a 6-3 scoreline against Wisconsin. The loss eliminated them from the Big Ten Tournament, putting the final nail in an abysmal 4-13-1 campaign.

Screens are all around us. We carry them in our pockets, wear them on our wrists and stare at them in a content binge. Our lives revolve around our devices. We use smartphones for seemingly every task we encounter. Whether that’s reading a news article, endlessly scrolling through photos of acquaintances, messaging a loved one, finding a date, listening to music – oh, and getting to our destination. We have become tethered to our phones. They are an extension of human capability, aiding us through daily tasks but also shifting the entire human paradigm. Should we be staring at our glass displays all day, every day or should there be some limits?
