As Covid-19 cases begin to rise again in Michigan and a fresh wave of restrictions seem imminent, my stress levels regarding the ongoing global pandemic have skyrocketed. And I’m certainly not alone. Almost everyone I’ve talked to in the last week has felt at least unsettled by the way cases are going up.
As communities around the state, nation and world experience mixed success in their efforts to manage an ongoing pandemic, and the threat of spiking COVID-19 cases looms, EMU continues to move forward “cautiously but deliberately” with the university’s plan for classes and some other activities to return to campus this fall.
The past few years of my life, I have come to learn more about myself and what I believe in. More recently, I have gotten comfortable sticking up for those beliefs.
Over the course of the past few seasons, the Washington Redskins have faced scrutiny over the mascot of their team. So much so, in fact, that their stadium sponsor, FedEx, has asked them to change their mascot, and Nike has removed all Redskins gear from their website.
It has been a buzzworthy 2019-2020 court session. Chief Justice John Roberts became the deciding vote this week for striking down a Louisiana anti abortion law which closely mirrored a Texas law from 2016. The Texas law had been struck down by a deciding vote from since-retired Anthony Kennedy, who was often the swing justice on social issues like abortion and LGBTQ+ rights. Some suggest Roberts is taking up the mantle as a swing justice, pointing to recent cases regarding the census, gerrymandering, LGBTQ+ rights, and the recent abortion ruling.
"Search Party" originally aired on TBS from 2016-2017 to high praise for genre-bending storytelling that progresses each season. In 2018, it was renewed for two more seasons, but this time on a new network: HBO Max. After a long wait, the series premiered on the streaming service on June 25, 2020 - and it did not disappoint.
Hungry for some new music? Listen to 6LACK’s new "6pc Hot" EP to get a beautiful fill of good vibes and varying styles. The extended play is six tracks long, all of which discuss a multitude of topics from family to feelings to the saddening conditions of the current world.
Jack Harlow recently dropped a remix of “WHATS POPPIN”. It features him,Tory Lanez, DaBaby, and Lil Wayne. Initially, I was surprised by the big names Harlow was able to get to hop on the remix. But after thinking about it for a bit, it makes sense.
“The View” is not a show geared towards the college age audience, but it also doesn’t have the same “stay-at-home mom” feel it did when it started in 1997. My hope is that college students will watch a few episodes and form their own view of whether they should be watching it or not.
Jessie Reyez released her debut studio album "Before Love Came to Kill Us" earlier this year on March 27. Now, months later, she has created an animated music video for her track “Intruders,” a piece that has only added to the song's beauty.
Over the last week, swift action has been taken to oust Beth Bashert as mayor following a racially insensitive comment. In response to the knowledge that Bashert was being tracked on her decommissioning of Black Ypsilanti leaders and antagonism towards Black City Council members, she claimed she would be “crucified” if she were to vote “no” on the reinstatement of Ka’Ron Gaines to the Human Relations Commission - therefore voting “yes.” The City Council followed by voting “no,” pointing to issues of attendance and a lack of interest and devoting the rest of the meeting to calling Bashert out on her comment.
Ashnikko’s newest release displays her wide variety of talent between its unique sound, clever lyrics, and out-of-the-box music video. The new single “Cry” is one of two tracks so far that are said to be included on the artist's upcoming project.
Raury, a multi-genre 24 year old musical artist from Atlanta, recently released a single titled “Take Back The Power.” As America limps through the ongoing global pandemic and has a light shone on institutionalized racism, there’s more and more hurt to go around every day. While it is easy to wallow in these times, and let them drown you, there are better ways to react. Singer and rapper Raury Tullis (known professionally as Raury) provides a beautiful example of a better way to react- take back the power.
About a month ago, I was on the phone with my best friend and she said “You need to watch this movie ‘365 DNI’.” At the time, the Polish/Italian film was yet to reach Netflix, but has since been added to the popular streaming service. Preceding its more widespread release, I’ve seen tons of posts about the movie and tons of girls gushing over the main character's attractiveness.
Loving yourself and being happy alone should be taught as important from a young age. Often times, society teaches from youth that the main goal in life is to get married and have children, which in my opinion is not good. Stable mental health needs to be seen and talked about as the top priority for everyone and is the key to making anything else work.
As the world is beginning to reopen and the number of COVID-19 cases hopefully continues to decrease, returning back to a semi-normal life can be interesting to say the least. Going from sitting at home doing almost nothing for months, to working, seeing people, and participating in other normal activities feels weird and is a big transition.
We’ve seen this before: massive protests across the county in opposition to police brutality against Black Americans. Unfortunately, we have also seen these protests peak and burn out before any major legislative changes were made. The protests against the murder of George Floyd cannot end in two or three weeks; they must continue until Washington takes action.
The past two weeks have seen collective mourning of George Floyd, collective action in urban, suburban, and rural communities in response, and a surprising level of consensus from Americans on the need for systemic reform in law enforcement.
If you want to hear relatable journal entries turned into hits for the youth, you should listen to Alec Benjamin. His debut album These Two Windows arrived on the last Friday of May, and it truly features a unique consciousness that music needs today. A singer-songwriter capable of creating abundant bedroom pop for significant connections.
The last week has seen nonstop coverage in the news media and on our Twitter feeds about police violence and the protests that have sprung up - across all 50 states - in reaction to the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. Activists and everyday Americans across the nation, and even in my small, rural home county, have taken to the streets to protest the now highly publicized issue of police brutality.
