LETTER: New presidency is indicative of turbulent times

(01/30/17 1:47am)

In its first days, President Donald J. Trump's administration has been in a rush to change many of their campaign promises into executive orders. Be it the revival of the Keystone XL Project and the Dakota Access Pipeline, or the multi-pronged anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim directives, these orders are causing many to become fearful and anxious. While the political climate toward the end of former President Barack Obama's administration was extremely divisive, no one could predict such a hurried change of direction for the nation. Instead of attempting to unite the country during these turbulent times, the new president not only continues his hate-filled rhetoric that garnered him such vast populist support during the election but is now acting upon it, giving us an ominous and dark picture of the days to come.

Everyone is familiar with the infamous "RU Screw," and while most are able to jocularly address this incessant frustration, there are some who have truly suffered because of it.










VOTE YES: Targum teaches lessons of responsibility, service

(04/12/16 12:15am)

I finished my tenure as The Daily Targum's editor-in-chief nearly 20 years ago after making it a daily part of my life, from the first week of my first year "on the Banks." A lot of time and experiences later, my tenure in the newsroom at The Daily Targum still impacts my life and my career. Putting out a daily newspaper while being a full-time student was a tremendous effort, and, looking back on it, a minor miracle every day. The responsibility was enormous and required a never-fail approach from more than 20 undergrads at each printing.
