The #MeToo movement worked against sexual harassment as well as sexual assault. The movement went viral in October 2017, making waves internationally while shedding light on the ubiquitous prevalence of sexual harassment, particularly in the workplace. Although this movement made mass news, it unfortunately has not been enough to completely eradicate sexual assault. Amnesty International is a human rights, non-governmental organization, based in the U.K. The organization has more than 7 million members worldwide and recently analyzed rape legislation in 31 European countries. Based on the study, only eight countries — Cyprus, Ireland, Belgium, the U.K., Iceland, Germany, Sweden and Luxembourg — define rape based on consent. Simply put, sex without consent is defined as rape. Correct?

Social constructionism has been one of the hottest topics in academia for several decades, as well as the topic that academia is best known for in the outside world. It is one of those rare concepts that has successfully escaped the academic journal and the lecture hall and found its way into everyday speech. Its ubiquity has even triggered a backlash from academics such as Jordan Peterson, Steven Pinker and their considerable social media followings that is growing in popularity daily. Yet papers, essays and editorials continue to abound at Rutgers and across the country that use the language of social construction to argue their points. So why has social constructionism, and not some other academic concept, seen its popularity skyrocket in recent years?

Please wake up New Brunswick. There is a proposed gas compressor station coming to Franklin Township. You will smell it. You will taste it too, despite the Clean Water Act (CWA) of 1972 which authorizes New Jersey to protect headwaters and wetlands because they filter and flush polluted downstream waters while storing flood water. Its pipelines will cross headwaters and wetlands of the already-contaminated Cheesequake Creek and Tennent Brook. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) lists more than 1,900 contaminated water bodies in New Jersey. We drink this water.

Many major complaints that Rutgers students have seem to stem from administrative insufficiencies, where attempting to solve problems with financial aid, parking, scheduling and other related issues are much more difficult than they ideally should be. Students often run around looking for the right office or the right person to help them. But there is hope, because relatively soon the University will be implementing a “One-Stop Center” where the aforementioned, highly sought-after offices and people will be located. Offices will possibly begin to open on location by this coming summer, though the entire Center will not be complete
One unique feature of the 2018 midterm elections was the record number of women who ran — and were elected — into office, according to recent data from the Rutgers Eagleton Institute of Politics.

In the 70s and 80s, genres of music like electronic and hip-hop were still local burgeoning movements. Like any new form, there needed to be a connection to the music of the past to draw listeners in. While styles like jazz and blues blossomed from prior advancements in folk traditions, the new genres of the late 20th century had a new advantage: technology. In hip-hop, the turntables recontextualized funk and disco breaks, creating a space for MCs to rhyme. Electronic music benefited from turntables and mixing consoles differently, making mash-ups and essentially crafting new songs. Today that tradition is still strong, but what constitutes a remix has changed.
