Elections were last week and many predictions over their outcome came true. The Democrats lost seven contested Senate races against Republican challengers and incumbents, which cost the Democrats control of the Senate. Republicans were able to win back seats the Democrats had won in 2008 when the Democrats were swept into office. The Republican victory can be explained by a number of things, ranging from low voter turnout, to low presidential approval ratings, to fear over Ebola and ISIS.
Setting aside all of the Democrat and Republican shuffling around, Michigan’s 2014 election this year centered on wolves. Now, if you’re like me, you probably weren’t even aware of this unless you happened to look up a version of the ballot a week or two before the first Tuesday of November. You most likely skimmed through both proposals too quickly the first time to really digest them and then just asked your roommate for his or her opinion. Unless you’re a fantastic citizen, you know this is true.
Americans like to punish people. Despite research in fields like sociology and psychology advising that its effects are mostly harmful, retribution, for real or imagined sins, is a tradition we embrace fondly.
Silencing political opponents, spying on enemies of the U.S., quarantining the diseased or suspected, and executing traitors without trial is nothing new for the United States government.
This past week, General Motors Co. was in court over a lawsuit filed by owners of vehicles that have been found to have an ignition switch defect. A defect that has been linked to 29 deaths.
When you mention Aquaman most people will probably snicker and laugh. People will probably tell okes about him only being able to talk to fish. Someone will say he has all the powers of Spongebob Squarepants, and everyone will laugh about how worthless Aquaman is compared to Superman and Batman. This is mostly because of his comical appearance on the 1973 cartoon “Super Friends” and the Cartoon Network shorts we probably grew up watching.
The new standard of math has taken the teacher out of the classroom and instead made them into facilitators and aids of Common Core math, the new math of self-discovery.
Last week, I wrote a friend of mine a letter.
I’ve never been very good at handling shame.
On June 28, 2012, the city of Stockton, California filed for bankruptcy, $1.1 billion in debt, and on July 18, 2013, the city of Detroit, Michigan filed for bankruptcy, $18 billion in debt. The difference between the two cities’ fiscal crises amounts to more than $16.9 billion difference in debt burden. In Detroit’s plan of adjustment, the pathway out of debt, it cuts pension benefits for retirees, but in Stockton’s plan of adjustment they didn’t.
If Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado loses his race for reelection, it may well be because he didn’t tout his chief accomplishment: the legalization of marijuana.
On April 20, 2014 ABC news published an article online that included pictures and videos containing recent sightings of the legendary Loch Ness Monster. The gigantic creature had been sighted near England, Scotland, Iceland, and Canada.
Under Michigan’s 1964 Constitution, no person was allowed to serve more than three consecutive terms in the House of Representatives or more than two consecutive terms in the Senate, the equivalent of six and twelve years respectively.
This past summer a massive scandal rocked the gaming community. The ex-boyfriend of Zoe Quinn, an indie game developer, posted a blog entry accusing Zoe of cheating on him with a gaming journalist from the website Kotaku in order to secure positive press for one of her games.
Human beings aren't cut out for democracy, even though we’ve yearned for self-rule since the days of Plato and Aristotle. The characteristics with which we are endowed by nature work against us.
Bait and switch on gay marriage?
I would think it untoward of an Ohioan, Indianan, or Wisconsinite to move to Michigan and instantly call themselves a Michigander, but I would think it infringing of an Ohioan, an Indian, or a Wisconsinite to come to Michigan simply to interfere an election. Why? Because that’s Michigan's business.
The city of Ypsilanti is in trouble. City revenue decreased by -0.56 percent between 2004 and 2013, while debt connected to the Water Street project accumulated.
An argumentum ad passiones ad nauseam (an “appeal to emotion to the point of nausea”) was the debate between Gov. Rick Snyder and former Rep. Mark Schauer. In it, every question was a great question, every issue was a critical issue, and everyone was an inspiration to everyone else. I was reminded of why I became an independent in the first place.
Imagine yourself in a foreign city of an English-speaking country. Can you think of some differences you might notice between American culture and the city you have found yourself in? Does the air smell the same? Do the people act the same? Does the city look anything like you are used to? These are all questions I asked myself before I left for Derby, England for the 2013-2014 academic school year. I participated in a study abroad program through Eastern Michigan University and studied at the University of Derby for nine months.
