KEMBURU: We ought to practice sustainable tourism when traveling

We are officially closing in on the end of the semester, and that means summer vacation. Most people our age either spend their summer doing an internship, visiting another state or country or just staying at home. Given those three options, I know I would choose to visit another place, and I am willing to bet that most other people would too. Statistical data reflects this belief — while in 1950 there were approximately 25 million international tourist arrivals per year, by 2016, that number had increased to 1.2 billion. 


KEMBURU: Billie Eillish: Breaking stereotypes while creating good music

At 17 years old, Billie Eilish has made a place for herself in the music industry with a style of music that is distinctly different from what we are used to hearing from the genre of pop. Born in Los Angeles, Eilish is the daughter of Maggie Baird and Patrick O’Connell, two individuals who have had their fair share of experiences in the entertainment industry, and her sibling is Finneas O’Connell, who has worked with her on almost all of her musical projects. 


KEMBURU: Debut of ‘Leaving Neverland’ forces us to question values

He was dubbed the “King of Pop.” He joined The Jackson 5 at the mere age of 5 years old but emerged as the group’s lead singer. He made musical history time and time again, winning the Grammy Living Legend Award, being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and having his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is Michael Jackson. And Jackson, according to the recently released documentary “Leaving Neverland,” was a sexual predator and a pedophile. 


KEMBURU: We awaken from American Dream to inequality, immobility

Historian James Truslow Adams once said, “The American Dream is that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement.” To paraphrase, if you work hard enough in America, anything is possible. If you put in the time and effort, your dreams can come true. America is the land of opportunity. 


KEMBURU: Hart missed opportunity of impactful apology in light of past

On Dec. 4, 2018, the Academy announced that Kevin Hart will be the host of the Oscars 2019. Two days later, on Dec. 6, a series of homophobic tweets from 2009 to 2011 written by Hart resurfaced on the internet. The Academy provided him with two options: apologize or step down from the position. Then, the next day, Kevin Hart stepped down from hosting the Oscars.
