Known by his stage name RM — Kim Namjoon, the leader of BTS — delivered an emotional 3-minute speech. In concise, humble words, he describes the strides BTS has paved amid great hardship and thanks his fellow members and fans for their ardent support along the way. But most importantly, his speech is a story — a tiny novella detailing the ordinary life of a young boy in a small town, and the strikingly universal struggles of growing up.
As of November 2016, approximately 62 million millennials were of voting-age in the United States, surpassing the 57 million members of Generation X and quickly approaching the 70 million Baby Boomers. The peak of eligible voters from the Baby Boomer generation was 73 million in 2004, but since then the group’s size has been declining. At the same time, the millennial electorate keeps growing and will predictably be the largest voting-eligible group soon. But simply being eligible to vote is one thing — actually getting out to vote is another. Millennials are known to be less likely to actually vote than older groups. But if mobilized, young people obviously have the ability to become a seriously powerful electoral force.
When the candied myths sour, we will be forced to reckon with our poisoned misdirection. We are not the land of the select few, but rather we are the land of the united many, E pluribus unum. A nation of nations. A nation of immigrants. An imperfect nation that must confront the racism and hate that divides us. When we realize that we have been hollowed as a populace, that there has been a theft of our patriotism and perversion of our democratic values, then we will understand the deception.
This fall I am teaching an American Studies course on the role of museums and monuments in American culture and history. I planned a three-week unit around the history of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. and the controversies that surrounded the construction of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and WWII Memorial. We are also examining the National Museum of the American Indian and the recently opened National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the struggle that went into seeing these institutions realized as part of the landscape that is referred to as “America’s front yard.”

Brett Kavanaugh — who is days away from being appointed to Supreme Court Justice — has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, when he was 17. Although I was horrified to hear this news, it is sad to say I was not shocked.
This new Ford hails from Maryland, is a psychologist and professor at the Palo Alto University and like the Model T, only bears the name “Ford” because some guy gave it to her. In her case it was her husband, Russell Ford, whom she met on Matchmaker, a more sophisticated Tinder for academics — scandalous.
Technically, at this point in the month, there has been an average of more than one crime alert per week — which does not necessarily give us an accurate idea of how many crimes are actually occurring, being that some additional crimes may simply not be reported or may not appear in Rutgers crime alerts. Either way, it is clear that the crime experienced by students stems from both people affiliated with the University and those not affiliated. Because the seemingly constant rate of crime involves both Rutgers affiliates and New Brunswick residents, there is no simple fix on either end.
Two crime alerts were issued over the course of Friday and this weekend — one involving an aggravated assault and the other involving a robbery.
Following Naomi Klein — journalist and human rights activist — being named the inaugural Gloria Steinem Endowed Chair in Media, Culture and Feminist Studies, the University hosted a dialogue on Sept. 21 that covered new media and the shape of various cultural movements.
