Take a stroll through campus during the summer months, and you will quickly find that Eastern Michigan University’s campus is dead. Few people walk the sidewalks, resident advisors aren’t nearly as stressed and parking is relatively easy to find. Fortunately, those days are over.
What is Mitt Romney hiding by concealing his tax returns?
Recently, Republican Congressman Todd Akin received a firestorm of criticism for his dangerous and stupid remarks about rape.
Being an incoming freshman in college can be scary. You will face challenges that you have never imagined and it will test your inner strength, as feelings will run the gamut of excitement, fear, happiness and homesickness.
Although I have no regrets about my college experience at Eastern Michigan University, there are some things I wish I had known sooner.
Fall 2012 will see another wave of students entering another college semester. For some it will be their first. Incoming freshmen should ask themselves two questions: How will students and their parents pay for it? And is the four-year college track really the right one for them?
“Elbow.” Imagine being suspended from class for calling out a part of the human anatomy during an open discussion about the body.
The middle class has taken it on the chin during past economic crises. Most of America has, to be fair, but the middle class in particular seems to be the hardest hurt in the long term.
New York City is a big place. So it’s not surprising that it has its fair share of political kooks with nutty ideas they think are the answer to America’s problems. It seems a little odd though, that those Big Brother wannabes are in office.
Last week the New York Times ran two editorials calling attention to a new flood of secret money in politics and calling for the Internal Revenue Service to act. So what’s new about money corrupting our political system? Nothing. But it’s the way the money is being funneled that needs attention.
Last week I was reflecting on all the newsworthy stories of the spring, when I came upon a stirring conclusion about Detroit. Being strained by both financial and criminal problems, it seems to be falling further into peril with each sunset.
One of the many privileges that some people often enjoy when in a relationship is dictating how a significant other spends his or her time and complaining if it is not within expectations. When people who are not in an exclusive relationship try to do this however, they become a clinger.
It’s finally dawning on American voters that our political views have become every bit as “faith-based” as our religious beliefs. The old-fashioned idea that partisan disputes should still be settled by the facts is not only quaint and naive, it’s now positively dangerous.
Ann Arbor is a fun place to visit, assuming you want to brave the traffic or take a bus. Be careful, though — I think the place’s craziness is contagious.
Remember that New Year’s resolution to lose weight? How’s the progress coming?
How seriously do we take our responsibilities and our lot in life? There is a striking difference in the reality of someone who can rely on parents or other family members to carry them until a certain age and the reality of someone who must fend for him- or herself.
Benjamin Franklin said there are two things certain in life: death and taxes. Unfortunately, Americans really don’t like paying taxes. We have managed to turn avoiding taxes into an Olympic level sport, to a point where the country’s very financial survival is in doubt.
I observed two things while traveling the country by road last week. First, riding with the windows down while jamming Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Freebird” still rocks. Second, last week’s radio waves were dominated by right-wing hate peddling yakkies drumming up anger over President Barack Obama’s assertion that he supported gay marriage.
Few people would disagree that our proudest and most accomplished moments in life become worth more to us when we have someone with which to share them. Whether it consists of getting our dream job, traveling to a new and exciting place or overcoming an obstacle that has been present for a long period of time, we all have someone we run to when life offers a surprise.
Recently, hundreds of students graduated from Eastern Michigan University. Decorated caps, rehearsed congratulations and high spirits characterized the time and elders hoped to imbue the graduates with a completely uninhibited optimism. Nonetheless, I think the, “You can do anything you want to do!” speeches are tired and near meaningless.
