You can’t put this back together. It’s on the ground in a million pieces. An icon, a legend and by all accounts a great man stood by and watched an assistant coach allegedly molest children. No explanation will satisfy the questions. Joe Paterno had to go. But how did it get this far?
Recently we learned Physical Plant Chief of Operations John Donegan purchased an antique phone booth for $2,000. I’ve seen some argue that haters and complainers should get over it, that students don’t have a role in what or how the university’s money is spent. After all, it’s the university’s money, right?

“With just five weeks until its deadline, a secretive Congressional committee seeking ways to cut the federal deficit is far from a consensus, and party leaders may need to step in if they want to ensure agreement, say people involved in the panel’s work,” reported the New York Times. The secretive committee, officially known as the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, has come to the expected impasse. Its membership comprised of six Republicans and six Democrats, evenly divided between members of the Senate and the House.
The Students for a Democratic Society was a group of mostly college and graduate students who caught national attention for seeking idealistic changes in the United States in early 1960s. The group was concerned with combating entrenched racism, the nuclear arms race and economic inequality. Though overtly idealistic, the SDS has been credited with providing a foundation for the Civil Rights Movement and anti-war movement that has now become inextricably linked to the 1960s.
Ypsilanti’s City Council is trying to find ways to solve the city’s budget crisis, according to an annarbor.com article: “The Ypsilanti City Council instructed city staff to begin investigating a wide range of solutions to its projected $10.69 million budget shortfall. During a ‘free form’ discussion at a special goal-setting meeting on Tuesday night, council members each offered ideas and thoughts on measures to close the gap.”

Juan Mann is not a familiar name. However, he is the genius – perhaps I use that word loosely — behind the adorable, “Free Hugs Campaign.”
It’s been a bad year for Netflix. A 60-percent price hike came out of nowhere and turned the DVD portion of the company into Qwikster and then back to Netflix.
Recently a student who already decided on a combined major with ‘Actuarial Science and Economics’ visited my office and expressed interest in taking mathematics as her second major. I encouraged her by highlighting that such a double major would be beneficial either to becoming an actuarial professional, or pursuing an advanced degree in economics at a top university.
America tends to be the land of extremes – from high obesity rates to radical political allegiance and the prevalence of corporate manipulation, the U.S. often sets the trends, as well as serving as entertainment for horrified spectators.
Steve Jobs recently passed away; his death garnering him favorable comparisons to the likes of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison. I was struck by the rather numbing uniformity of praise for the mind behind Apple: brilliant, confident and, perhaps above all, an innovator. Looking past the seeming robotic feel to it all, the importance of innovation was help as a self-evident, sacrosanct value.
