There is always something happening around the world. Cyprus is wrestling with the prospect of a eurozone bailout. Florida Gulf Coast University has upset both Georgetown and San Diego State universities in the NCAA Tournament. Syria’s bloody civil war continues to rage on. Colorado signed stricter gun control into law.
Being a commuter myself, I am sympathetic to issues involving parking. And having had a car that could not go in reverse, I have had more parking problems than most people. I also agree that more attention seems to be paid to campus residents than commuter students.
Diversity. We hear about it all the time. It has become the hottest new thing on the market and everyone is eager to show how diverse they are.
Bullying is a problem our society has faced for a long time. Even after so many years of advocacy on this issue, our schools still don’t know how to handle bullying as well as they should.

President Barack Obama ended what was dubbed the “charm offensive” by the popular media last week, where he met with Democrats and Republicans in both chambers of Congress to attempt to build trust between the parties. People hoped this would lead to a new period of bipartisan cooperation, but it is more complicated than it seems.
Every now and then on a long trip, my friends will stop at the nearest 7-Eleven for a drink. I always feel a sense of amusement when one of them comes back with a Double Gulp, a full 50 ounces of Coke. Not so amusingly, in a Jun. 6, 2012 article, The New York Times reported that a Double Gulp of Coke contains 600 calories, or roughly a quarter of the daily recommended calories for an average man.
Everything began as normal on the day that changed the world forever. In Manhattan, busy traders, engineers, security guards, fathers, mothers, sons and daughters made their ordinary morning commute. But, as we now know, September 11, 2001 was to become the latter date on nearly 3,000 of our brothers’ and sisters’ gravestones. Three-thousand people brutally murdered in four clouds of fire, destruction and hate.
There has been much debate over whether or not the Republican Party should reform, and if it does, what should be the result of that reform. New Hampshire and the Free State Project offer an example of a possible end result.

Argentinean, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, is the first Jesuit Pope and the first Pope from South America. The new pontiff has an opportunity to right the battered ship that is the Catholic Church while he is in office. Hopefully, for the church’s sake, he can set off a domino effect of positive changes to save the institution.
This past weekend, Eastern Michigan University’s most successful program added to an already storied legacy by winning yet another team championship.
Imagine walking past Eastern Michigan University’s Pray-Harrold building and glancing up to see solar panels harnessing the power of the sun. The reality is, we have a vast untapped solar resource but continue to depend on outdated energy sources like coal, gas and oil that pollute our air and water and drain our natural resources.
