Despite high literacy rates, advanced health care and other resources at the disposal of the common American, there’s a growing problem amongst this population: obesity.

That time is upon us, where we get a Monday off from classes and the campus events reflect a time of social upheaval and change.
Martin Luther King Jr. is among the most favorably remembered figures in American history. At times he reaches an almost mythic status, a heavenly figure sent to trumpet the melodies of equality and freedom.
Each year at this time, Eastern Michigan University and this publication pay tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. Today you’ll likely hear about his contribution to his fellow man, what it means for your life today and a host of other good messages we like to drape over Dr. King forty-four years after his death.
What comes to mind when you hear someone called a “feminist?” When some people hear the term “feminist,” they might imagine a man-hating woman who never shaves her legs and is in a perpetually bad mood. Others, like me, identify with the term because it doesn’t intimidate them.
What have we learned since the last race to the White House? We’ve learned that a professor of constitutional law has no more regard for civil rights and liberties than a Texas oilman. We’ve learned that hope is fleeting.
The Obama administration has inaugurated 2012 with renewed belligerence toward Iran, which threatens to destabilize the region and spark a wider conflagration between the world’s major powers.

Rick Snyder’s decision to push Washington to loosen federal laws to attract and retain more talented and educated immigrants.”
Well it’s been a long campaign season already, but we’re mere days away from the most anticipated day of the election cycle. I’m speaking, of course, about Jan. 19, 2012 — the day Herman Cain will announce whom he’s endorsing.
Earlier this month the Democratic-controlled Senate voted 93 to 7 in favor of approving the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which authorizes the military to unilaterally detain indefinitely without trial any individual anywhere in the world – including U.S. citizens within the U.S.
As easy as it is for liberals — at least the liberals who haven’t swooned by his libertarian seduction — to write off Congressman Ron Paul’s (R-TX) as a crackpot, they should be cautious. Albeit the septuagenarians wrinkles and languor, he embodies curious ideas and wisdom for the country.
Although technology seems like an integral part of our lives, from banking to schoolwork and correspondence, it is hard to believe it has also affected the dating game.
Biology 105 here at EMU has two obvious effects: wrecking your GPA and, less bitterly, the reification of concerns about our world with regard to climate change.
Structuring electoral districts for political advantage has a long and proud tradition in American history.
Did I say proud? I meant disgraceful.
Three years after the Wall Street collapse initiated deep recession, the world once again stands on the precipice of an economic abyss, demonstrating that the current crisis represents not merely a conjunctural downturn in the markets, but a systemic breakdown of the capitalist system.
Answer this question: If you had to pay for college out-of-pocket as you go, would you still be attending right now?
The Republican Party could easily describe the macroeconomic policies of the Democratic Party as ‘tax and spend,’ but then, not much can be said for their approach or stewardship over the U.S. economy.
