GUVERCIN: School psychologists are vital for education

(03/02/19 5:00am)

The pivotal role of mental health professionals is becoming more and more evident within our current social environment and is being recognized as not a suggested, but mandatory element within any operation involving people. Schools in particular have demonstrated a need for mental health professionals, as they are the primary environment within a child’s social, academic and internal life. 

O'BRIEN: Culture war breeds divisive animosity

(02/28/19 5:00am)

Politics has always been a rather chaotic, ugly and intensely personal game for those involved. This should be no surprise, as after all, the stakes are pretty high. People’s incomes, health and mobility often depend on the outcomes of political debates. But few would deny that over the course of our young lives, the tone of our national political environment has sharply turned more negative. I am not referring to any one particular candidate, party or group, but a creeping perception that politics now feels like all-out war. 

AHMED: All-nighters define U. experience for many

(02/28/19 5:00am)

The all-nighter: I am sure this phrase already brings back some memories for some of you. Maybe it was that one time back in high school when you had procrastinated to the very last minute to get that project done and, of course, had to pull an all-nighter to get it done on time. Or maybe you never had to pull an all-nighter until you came to college and realized how crammed you were and had to get your assignment done before the next morning. 

EDITORIAL: Green Amendment protects future of NJ

(02/27/19 5:00am)

The era of indifference, of procrastination, of dense denial and soothing silence is coming to a close. We now find ourselves at the border of consequences, entering the era in which we reach the point of no return. The State Senate has proposed to amend our constitution to “recognize and protect an individual’s rights to clean air and water, and a healthy environment as inalienable human rights deserving of the highest constitutional and legal protection.”

OLAYEMI: Stifling of diversity in U. life, clubs must end

(02/27/19 5:00am)

In the spirit of Black History Month, I want to touch on what I feel is a need for greater leadership in the Black community at Rutgers. Being that our school is so large, it can be difficult to develop relationships with faculty, staff and administrators that help motivate us to maximize our opportunities and better our overall college experience at Rutgers. It is because of this discontinuity that we students rely on the peer support and mentorship provided through the organizations and departments on campus. 

BEZAWADA: Opportunity paves path for continued hope, discovery

(02/27/19 5:00am)

"My battery is low, and it is getting dark." After the 15-year-old rover Opportunity drew its final breath on the lonely Red Planet, the news of its last message took the internet by storm. Photo edits, GIF sets and posters flooded social media in heart-wrenching artistic renderings of the haunting words. The end of humanity’s favorite robot, that was originally intended to travel less than half a mile for 90 days, but against all odds lasted approximately 15 years and 28 miles, could not have been on a more fitting occasion: The day before Valentine’s Day on Perseverance Valley.

OMANA: Consumerism, celebrity idolization pushes unethical fashion

(02/27/19 5:00am)

From movies to magazines to social media, it feels like the pressure to look perfect and dress like a fashionista is only rising. While celebrities have always had tremendous impact on consumerism, their impact is even more so today as more and more people fall in debt or become a slave to cosmetic surgeries and procedures, trying to keep up with this perfect, glamorous, "Insta" look. 

SURIANO: We must not allow America to feel ‘Bern’ of socialism

(02/25/19 5:00am)

Everyone’s favorite 77-year-old senator from Vermont is running for president again. I am referring, of course, to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Last time around, even though he put the fear of God into Hillary Clinton, he did not ever really stand a chance. So, he never had people really look into his background fully. But, now that he seems to have a real shot at the Democratic nomination for president I think people ought to point out that Sanders is not a good man and his ideas are dangerous. On top of that, he is a hypocrite who does not live by the ideology that he would put the rest of us under.

CASTELLI: Memes are important counterculture tools

(02/22/19 5:00am)

Peppa Pig, an innocuous children’s cartoon character, was scrubbed from its various video-sharing platforms in China due to its association with counterculture memes and “society people" — slang for unruly slackers and gangsters. The “cheeky little piggy” has sparked a tattoo craze and other subtle ways to take a jab at the communist government, which heavily monitors the media its citizens consume as an effort against western influence. Despite its pushback, Peppa Pig continues to grow among rebellious Chinese youth. 

VALDEZ: Grammys are hollow honors for rap music

(02/21/19 5:00am)

Throughout the history of mankind, people have craved validation. When someone was being crowned king in ancient times, they were being validated by their people. They were considered by the general population to have the leadership skills necessary for the job. The same thing happens when athletes win championships, or a new president gets elected. Thanks to their hard work, these select individuals have been recognized and celebrated as high-performing members of their respective professions. Who would not enjoy this coveted honor?

HITCHINGS: Greed outweighs love for game in sports

(02/21/19 5:00am)

On Tuesday afternoon, Major League Baseball (MLB) insider Jeff Passan shook the world with the long-awaited announcement of show-stopping free agent infielder Manny Machado’s new contract. Ten years, $300 million to become the new shortstop for the San Diego Padres. Machado will go from making $16 million in 2018 to $30 million a year for the next decade. The deal is the largest ever signed by a free agent, but will likely be eclipsed in the coming weeks, as the free agency floodgates open up and the start of the season grows dangerously close.

KEMBURU: We awaken from American Dream to inequality, immobility

(02/21/19 5:00am)

Historian James Truslow Adams once said, “The American Dream is that dr “today a woman with a bachelor’s degree earns roughly the same as a man with an associate’s degree, and the same holds … for each successive level of educational attainment,” It gets even worse for women of color and people of color in general ffort, your dreams can come true. America is the land of opportunity. 

EDITORIAL: Healthcare system is shamefully broken

(02/21/19 5:00am)

The fifth largest economy in the world would be the U.S. healthcare system. Because of the costs of healthcare and the system’s immense profit margins in the U.S., were it to hypothetically break off from America this would be the reality. We spent $3.3 trillion, or 17.9 percent of the entire country's gross domestic product in 2016, on healthcare.
