Last Friday, University President Robert L. Barchi announced the formation of a Free Speech panel at Rutgers in light of constitutional protections that allow for speech that some find “offensive or morally repugnant.” This standing panel will consist of First Amendment experts and legal scholars and it will advise the Office of the General Counsel and, in turn, the Office of Employment Equity in assessing all matters that involve questions of free speech. While the line between offensive or morally reprehensible speech and hate speech is very thin, we laurel the formation of this panel as an important step to ensure that inalienable rights are protected.
On Sept. 24, internationally-recognized Korean band BTS was invited to deliver a powerful speech at the 73 session of the United Nations General Assembly.

The conference was significant not only because of its humanitarian endeavor to abet the welfare of global youth, but also because it marked BTS as the first ever Korean band group to address the United Nations General Assembly.
In a New Jersey Transit safety training meeting for my town's Emergency Services staff (police, firefighters, EMS), the instructor eventually and inevitably brought up the topic of terrorism.

It was just designed to interact with the train in a way that derailed it simply by placing it on the tracks.

If you use the internet, it is overwhelmingly likely that you have at some point encountered a meme. Memes have become an extremely common way for internet users to easily transfer information, most of the time with humorous undertones, to one another. The popularity of memes is somewhat of an enigma even to those who are familiar with them. The term meme was apparently first brought about in 1976 by Evolutionary Biologist Richard Dawkins to describe a spread of cultural information.
