We have all been there. A closet full of clothes but nothing to wear. No matter how many tops, bottoms, jackets and shoes you have, it can often be difficult to see past the clutter in your closet. Enter Marie Kondo, the Japanese super-organizer and creator of the KonMari Method of organizing your life.
Throughout history, politics have always in some ways paralleled sports. The sweet feeling of victory, the sting of defeat, strategy and competition amalgamate to form an emotional roller coaster of sorts — intensely familiar to followers of both baseball season and campaign season.
It has been confirmed that the United States has hit the second-highest level of measles cases in 25 years. This year alone holds 626 cases, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is an astounding 71-case increase from the numbers the agency reported last week in its weekly update.

The state of this nation is intertwined with the state of unions. Societal progress is won and lost by the unions of America. As Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. stated in an address to the Illinois American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), “The labor movement was the principal force that transformed misery and despair into hope and progress.”

Almost every college student has cursed the institution of general education or core requirements at least a few times in their life. I mean, why do you have to take extra math classes when you are an art history major?
In 2019, the population still faces problems involving oil drilling. While one part of the country strives towards a greener, more efficient future, the other half continues to push back with their environmentally harmful ways. Just recently President Donald J. Trump attempted to open up the Arctic in an attempt to further the hunt for what seems to be the earth’s gold mine: oil. We are almost into the second decade of the 21st century and fossil fuels are still being sought after, even with the knowledge of its detrimental impact on the environment as well as its lack of renewability.
Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan — who left office just four months ago but who already feels like a distant figure from another political era — famously said he viewed politics as a “battle of ideas,” a substantive competition between well-intentioned people to solve public problems. While there was ample reason to question his commitment to this vision in practice, Ryan presented himself as a serious wonk with big ideas to reform America’s tax system and social safety net.
The end of the semester is slowly coming upon us. The weather is gradually starting to get nicer as the spring weather is truly starting to kick in here at Rutgers. Cherry blossoms and daffodils have been spotted all around campus, and though everyone wants to try and enjoy the beautiful magic that comes with nature, everyone is busy.
The fields of medicine and science are not immune to the manipulation of prejudice. Etched into our American history are medical practices targeting certain groups under the guise of scientific justification. Without a wholesale rejection of empiricism, there must be an acknowledgement of the reality that implicit and explicit biases can drive scientific conclusions to legitimize horrific acts of degradation, dehumanization and social harm.
International law recognizes the right of refugees to return to their homes after displacement. Therefore, the right of return is non-negotiable for Palestinians as it is the crux of the struggle for freedom from occupation. The concept of Palestinian right of return calls for the return of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to their homeland. It serves as the bedrock of the struggle against the vicious eviction of an indigenous people from their homes.
Me: “Honestly, we can still go to the party if we really wanted to.”
On April 3, three young men from Pennsylvania State University were sentenced to jail time for the role they played in the death of another man on campus.

Your brain has the power to consistently grow. While the brain is not actually made of plastic, neuroplasticity means that the brain has the capability to change and grow throughout life experience. Plasticity is the capacity of the brain to change with constant education and we as humans, are far from reaching our potentials, so the growth is seemingly endless.
Her hijab was ripped from her head, torn from her and thrown to the ground. Her beliefs were the target of the attack, and her body and faith were the victims as she was beaten. Police have stated that a Muslim East Brunswick High School student was the victim of a biased attack and the assailant, another student, has been charged with “simple assault, harassment, cyber harassment and disorderly conduct.”
The oppressor never gives up his power, and in the case of slavery, he never truly did. In a criminal justice system where a Black man is six times more likely to be incarcerated than a white man, where underdeveloped communities have to remain underdeveloped for fear that they will be gentrified and where felony disenfranchisement extends a sentence far beyond being in prison, shackles have become handcuffs and the Constitution still remains merely a suggestion.
Another day another controversy around the new batch of radical Leftist freshman members of Congress. This time a video reemerged in which Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) described 9/11 “as some people who did something.” Omar is no stranger to controversy, as she had repeatedly made comments labeled as anti-Semitic. This controversy grew when Omar’s comments were criticized by freshman Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), The New York Post’s front page criticized her and President Donald J. Trump tweeted a video of her speech spliced over images of the 9/11 attack.
On Monday evening the University of Virginia (UVA) Cavaliers summited the highest mountain in college sports by winning a national basketball championship at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. They bested 67 other teams in the March Madness tournament, which started in mid-March, last defeating the Texas Tech Red Raiders 85-77 in overtime to bring home their first National Championship. That is where this Virginia team’s story ends, but its beginning is over a year ago, at a college basketball team's lowest point, in the last year tournament’s opening round.
