On the night of Jan. 23, 2018, networks of organizations and members of various communities took to the streets of New Jersey with Monarch Housing Associates to conduct the 2018 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count of homeless men, women and children across the state’s 21 counties. The 2018 report counted 9,303 homeless people on that night, which was a 9 percent increase from the 2017 report. This increase was smaller than the reported increase from 2016 to 2017, which was 20 percent, but still undeniably disheartening.

The end is near. Well, the end of the semester at least. In a few weeks, choosing to chill out and watch a movie won’t feel like a shameful act of procrastination, because we’ll actually be on break. To help prepare for a month of leisure time, it might be worth checking out what’s new on Netflix this month. Here are four programs that'll surely keep you occupied over break.

Over time, the fashion industry has gradually become much more inclusive. Representation has been a prominent issue within fashion, but today’s brands are now deciding that it is finally time for diversity. Models are no longer your standard tall and thin — they come in all races, shapes and sizes. Those in charge of brands are starting to diversify as well. Black designers are becoming more influential, whether it be through becoming the head of already established fashion houses or creating their own brands. These designers are changing fashion as we know it and have now become some of the most powerful in the industry.

Residents of New Jersey feel no pride for their state, obviously. Other than the Liberty Science Center, the Jersey Shore and the old-timey diners, there is nothing much redeeming about the state. The only remotely interesting thing about New Jersey is ranking No. 1 out of all U.S. states for bad drivers.
Our dear University has found itself in the news over the past few months. No, not because of our unfortunate athletics record or the unreliability of the bus system, but because of its policies with free speech. From the investigation of James Livingston, a professor in the Department of History, for a Facebook post to the deplatforming of a University-sponsored talk, it is clear that Rutgers problems with free speech are endemic to the great amount of ambiguity and interpretation of present speech codes. Though this might seem to be too complicated to resolve, the University of Chicago’s Report of the Committee on Freedom of Expression has already provided us with a format for the formal commitment that, "guarantees all members of the University community the broadest possible latitude to speak, write, listen, challenge and learn." In response to these recent controversies, the current administration should adopt the so-called “Chicago Statement” to bolster First Amendment protections on campus and facilitate a vibrant culture centered around the free exchange of ideas.

This ultimately allows him to maintain relevance in today’s digital age and control how he is seen in the spotlight.
Your first impression to a college admissions officer involves more than just an essay, a transcript and some test scores. Now that social media is a hub for posting stories, pictures and life updates, it has become a more accurate view of the “behind the scenes” in one’s life rather than just reading a boring, unoriginal essay.

How would you feel if someone took a crap on you and you were the one ostracized?
Faculty, staff and graduate students have been working at Rutgers without a contract since July. The administration only agreed to bargain in March, and until recently would only do so for eight hours a month. Now, in New Jersey, home of the backroom deal, the administration has announced that it will say nothing substantive, it will ask no questions and it will put forward no proposals unless graduate students are excluded. Not only must graduate students remain silent, which they have been doing in bargaining sessions for the past several months, they are not even allowed to be in the room during bargaining.
