As of April 10, former presidential hopeful Rick Santorum formally withdrew as a candidate for the Republican Party ticket. If you are not already aware of reasons to celebrate, consider his similarity to a man named Anthony Comstock. They both have revered Victorian morality and are known for a complete disregard for women’s rights.
Everything you know is wrong. At least it could be. This is according to findings published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that show evidence humans used fire one million years ago – 600,000 years earlier than previously thought.
Eastern Michigan University is one of the most LGBT-accepting schools in the country. A simple walk around campus is a testament to our university’s socially liberal streak. Yet even as most Eagles glow with pride at Eastern’s accepting nature, they do so with little consideration given to the last letter of the famous acronym.
Concealed weapons should be allowed on campus. There, I said it. After years of believing weapons should not be allowed on university property, I have flipped my position. I can no longer find a valid reason as to why law-abiding citizens who attend and work at Eastern Michigan University or any university campus should be left defenseless.
Opening Day in southeast Michigan is a holiday. Downtown Detroit shuts down and turns into the only place to be every year. Today, 2011 MVP and Cy Young winner Justin Verlander takes the mound to face the Boston Red Sox.
I’ve often joked that if Rick Santorum fails to receive the Republican nomination for presidency, he should launch his candidacy for the papacy. God knows the former Pennsylvania senator has delivered enough unctuous rants to be an honorary pontiff.
The “It Gets Better” campaign has good intentions, but lack legitimacy and realistic goals concerning ostracized young adults. Columnist and author Dan Savage created the campaign in response to increased attention on the bullying of LGBT youth.
Governor Rick Snyder is trying his best to reassure Detroiters he’s looking out for them while trying to save the city from financial ruin. Well, more financial ruin than it’s already suffered in the last 50 years at least.
On Oct. 30, 1938, author Orson Welles narrated his famous story, “The War of the Worlds.” After the radio narration a widespread hysteria took place, as many actually believed aliens were invading their world. The radio drama drew scathing criticism for its “realism.” I suspect, however, that more so than realism, mob mentality convinced the scared listeners they were about to be obliterated or subjugated.
As far as I can tell, Alexander Pope popularized the phrase “hope springs eternal” in 1733. One Internet poster without a citation carried it back to ancient Rome, but either way, I’m sure they were talking about Major League Baseball’s Opening Day.
It’s too bad Twitter wasn’t around in 1972, when President Richard Nixon made his famous trip to China which opened up diplomatic and trade relations between the two countries.
Penalties, fines and suspensions have become a hot commodity in the NFL since commissioner Roger Goodell took over in 2006.
Every day I walk through the Student Center and pass Starbucks. Sometimes I stop for a coffee, but most days I do not, wondering if there is time for me to swing by the Ugly Mug before class instead. As I weigh my options, I find myself wondering why there isn’t more competition on campus.
Roundabouts are annoying and I don’t like them. Unfortunately, Washtenaw County is going to call home to more of them, according to an article from Annarbor.com. The article mentions “a new roundabout at Geddes and Ridge roads in Superior Township would mark the 11th project of this type in the county. The 10th is planned for State and Ellsworth roads in Pittsfield Township, and both are part of 2013 road improvements for nearby construction projects.”
Facebook is excellent for multiple tasks: creeping on friends, following those melodramas we call other peoples’ relationships and, of course, flexing our “social activism.”
Generally speaking, going out for a bag of Skittles and a bottle of iced tea isn’t a particularly dangerous move. Except Trayvon Martin didn’t make it home. George Zimmerman shot and killed Martin last month, claiming self-defense.
The Eastern Echo has decided not to endorse any candidate in this year’s Student Government Presidential election. The three candidates running are Matthew Norfleet, Josh Lowe and David Yanagi. Based on their platforms and what they are promising, they either do not fully recognize the limits of the position they’re running for, or they are pandering to the Student Body and making promises they cannot keep.
Imagine living inside a factory with tiny dormitories that fit six or more, forced to return to the assembly line at any moment to fill an order. Shifts can last more than 12 hours, with two breaks that last an hour each. And the pay isn’t all that much – $2 an hour. If you’re lucky, you’ll make $17 a month. Monotonously, you assemble thousands of iPads and televisions.
The New York Times_ raised a lot of Americans’ ire when it ran its iEconomy
series that described the horrid conditions of Foxconn Technology’s factories in China. Foxconn Technology, a supplier for many companies, assembles products for Apple, Hewlett-Packard, Nintendo, Vizio, etc.
I have been at Eastern Michigan University since January 2010, and I have yet to have a semester go by without getting a parking ticket. It isn’t as though I try to skirt the rules or I am wholly irresponsible, but, each semester, something stupid happens so that I end up with a parking ticket.
Sports fans mark their calendars for four sporting events each year: the Super Bowl, the World Series, the Masters and NCAA March Madness. Bracket pools are becoming a national pastime. I have filled out three myself.
