By the time the 2018 election had concluded, candidates in Michigan had raised over $152 million. With such a large amount of money being raised, the interest of the politicians becomes disconnected from that of the people. The people want their opinion on issues facing America, from healthcare to climate change, to be the deciding factor on action politicians take.
November 6 held another historical election in the United States. Republicans took greater control over the Senate, while the predicted “Blue Wave” only somewhat hit the House of Representatives with Democrats taking over a majority of seats.
Over $128 million has been raised by politicians and organizations in Michigan, just during the 2018 election cycle. Nationwide, almost $2.5 billion has been raised. The purpose of this money is to buy influence; candidates want to buy TV ads, billboards, and any other form of advertisement to get their name out to the public.
I am writing to respond to the frequent claim made by conservative-Republicans that Democrats in the Congress and in the liberal part of the news media support "RECKLESS SPENDING" by the federal government on programs that help people.
I seem to find myself in the minority in today's national Democratic Party.
One of the most important midterm elections of our lifetime is only one week away. The results will determine whether President Trump’s agenda can continue to be implemented, or if it will come to a grinding halt. If Democrats take back control of either chamber of Congress the latter will be the case. It is likely the Democrats will use this power to begin investigations of the Trump administration, with the President’s tax returns at the top of the list.
I was a freshman in college when I first saw the viral hashtag float up on my Facebook feed. It wasn’t a reposted article, or some famous person I’d never met before. It was a friend from high school, and her story wouldn’t be the last.
The term “broke college student” is one that the 18-25-year-old knows far too well. The jobs we work primarily pay minimum wage, our hours leave something to be desired, and we have to worry about paying for school, paying for housing, paying bills, paying books, and paying and paying and paying. Not only does it feel like being in college leads to a loss of money, but to a loss of friendships as well. How can these relationships be rekindled? Through home cooking.
“The uproarious laughter between the two and their having fun at my expense,” said Dr. Christine Blasey Ford last week in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Many college students are all too familiar with how convenient cheap fast food is. It doesn’t need to taste good. It only needs to be easy on the wallet and filling enough to get me through my day. What’s my go-to? The Golden Arches. Not only do broke college students know the taste of a Big Mac, fries and a Coke all too well. McDonald's is also a spot to make a few extra dollars while going to school. However, McDonald's has recently been under fire by its employees due to low wages and now, sexual harassment.
Recently, The New York Times had an article about an unusual trend on YouTube. The YouTube children app, which was first introduced in 2015, is supposed to be an app that can safely show families kid-friendly videos that are on the video-sharing site.
Welcome back, I hope your holiday was filled with all the family fun and turkey it could be. No doubt you were asked some embarrassing questions about your social life or how college is going, but politics was probably another issue that was brought up. Perhaps reigniting all the sour feelings and bitter words from last year.
The death of the rising star shocked fans when his manager found Lil Peep unresponsive in his tour bus. He was pronounced dead at the scene around 11 p.m., Nov. 15. The cause of death is thought to be a possible drug overdose, most likely from Xanax, according to CNN sources.
The ever-voracious appetite for nostalgia that has engulfed American media over the last decade has led to the resurrection and remaking of several television programs and calls for reunions of now-defunct musical groups. “The Nostalgia Factor” has so far seen varying results in the world of American cinema, with classic films such as “Wall Street” and the “Indiana Jones” franchise releasing sequels decades after their predecessors. These films were met with a lukewarm reception from viewers and critics alike. Looking to break this mold, “Blade Runner 2049” seeks to please viewers 35 years after the release of Ridley Scott’s original “Blade Runner” in 1982.

Every year, Muslims wearing new clothes with bright colors fill the street. Their faces are bright with large smiles as they greet each other with warm hugs. Children play near them with balloons in their hands and sweet in their pockets. The Mosques are packed with worshipers to do the ritual prayer. Muslims united together from diverse countries in one place to celebrate the day of Eid al-Adha.
It happens to the best of us -- no matter how much you pour over the Housing and Residence Life website with their many do’s and don’ts for packing or ask college returners on what to pack, there’s a good chance that you’ll be in line to check into your residence hall when you’ll realize, to your horror, that you forgot to pack something important—or worse, have brought something on the “don’t” list.
