The Houthis—a Zaidi group from Sa’dah, in Yemen—are an honorable breed of rebels. They fight for a new democratic system to represent their entire country, instead of the one that their current president, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, envisions. As a response to the Houthi rebellion, the United States and Saudi Arabia decided to unjustly drone strike and air raid the rebels in Yemen under the cover of “humanitarian intervention,” killing thousands of innocents in the process. This is a crime and a failure to implement the United Nation’s “Responsibility to Protect” policy, as well as a failure to allow other countries to form democracies on their own, as the United States did.
As a feminist and young woman, I look at Hillary Clinton and admire her running for president. I love that she is making women who come from women’s colleges—as she did herself from Wellesley College—look amazing. I love that she graduated from the Yale school of Law and I am more than impressed that she has made a career for herself in American politics, as she has been both a senator as well as the Secretary of State during President Obama’s first term as president. As a woman, I look up to her and want to be just like her in many ways. She’s independent, strong and incredibly successful, just like I want to be in my field. However, as a college student and a person who is suddenly able and willing to vote, there is no way I am voting for Hillary Clinton.
Everyone experiences stress in different forms and at different times, but the transition to college is especially stressful to many people. This is why it is important to understand—as well as ease—this transition for students.
I didn’t vote. Not for 2012’s presidential election. Not for last year’s midterms. Am I registered? Yes. But I didn’t go. I had no drive and I had no wish. And I know I’m not the only one.
Kids don’t become obese overnight. And no, I’m not talking about the kids that are larger than the others, but their doctors say they’re healthy. I’m not talking about the children who blow up during a growth spurt and lose all of it when they take their first step onto a high school campus. Rather, I am talking about the children who, for a variety of reasons, are gaining too much weight and not losing it.
The Republicans have proven that they are incapable of reading or comprehending anything regarding the Iran Deal aside from it simply not happening. Their public statements blatantly contradict what news sources from CNN to PolitiFact have confirmed is true about the deal and it is clear that they are geared towards fanning the flames of misdirected hysteria of a nuclear Iran than deal with the truth that the current deal would make it impossible for Iran to go nuclear for the next fifteen years.
Donald Trump is the perfect reflection of a sick society; one which is consumed by consumerism, financed by greed, lobbied by corruption and which bathes in the murky waters of ignorance and chauvinism. It is a society which sees intellectualism, community and respectful, civil discourse as weakness. In this age of political scorn and deep societal issues, Trump is king.
Into the second week of class, I think we can all agree that we are once more swung into the throes of another heavy-loaded college semester. Not only do we have our class schedule tacked up somewhere in our room or copied into our planner, we’re starting to get a feel for when we’ll be able to squeeze in lunch, dinner with friends, homework, maybe working out, our jobs, calling our moms and oh yeah, sleep.
Every time physicians and scientists discover new ways to cure diseases, it seems like there are new diseases or old ones coming back and spreading. Some are important, some aren’t. Some I will get, others I will be able to avoid. So, as a college aged woman, I want to know which illnesses are those I should watch out for. Well, there are three diseases that every single college-aged young woman should be aware of and do her best to avoid. 1. Depression: Depending on the school, medical and social histories, ability to deal with stress, and several other factors, young women can be at greater or less risk for developing depression. However, according to Chris Iliades of Everyday Health, suicide is the second leading cause of death in college-aged students. Because of the neuroanatomy and the structure of female brains, as well as behaviors, women are more likely to develop depression than men. Making sure that you, as a college-aged woman, have access to treatment for depression as well as methods of avoiding its development is more than likely crucial to surviving college.
The feeling everyone had as they settled into their cars following Saturday's loss to Old Dominion was mutual. It was sheer disappointment and the feeling that this season is shaping up to be just like all the others.
In the film “Mr. Nobody,” a 118-year old man named Nemo is beckoned to recall the details of his life. There are several points where he has to make crucial decisions in his life, such as the choice between living with his mother or his father, settling with the girl that he’s just okay with or risk waiting for the one who can make him truly happy. While contemplating the decisions he had to make, Nemo says, “We cannot go back. That’s why it’s hard to choose.”
Recently, there has been controversy over the mass closing of Planned Parenthood locations nationwide. For example, according to Laura Bassett of the Huffington Post, Indiana has closed many of its rural Planned Parenthood locations and it is not the only state that has had these closings. Florida, Wisconsin and many other states have decided to defund their Planned Parenthood locations in order to stop abortion within their states. These state leaders, such as Scott Walker from Wisconsin and Jeb Bush in Florida, defunded their Planned Parenthood locations in order to stop abortions in their states and protect the lives of fetuses. But with the rampant desires, and actions taken to defund Planned Parenthood, the problem then becomes countless women losing access to reproductive care. So it is only right to continue funding Planned Parenthood and to stop the defunding of Planned Parenthood right?
Recently, with the rise of children diagnosed with autism, many parents are beginning to believe that there is a link between autism and vaccinations. However, recent research indicates that autism can be detected and develops at a much earlier age and can be found developing while the child is still in the womb. Therefore, many of the concerns that parents have regarding vaccinations are invalidated by recent research.
In highly religious cultures throughout the United States, it is a practice in some school districts to only teach abstinence, regarding sexual health and education. While many students in classrooms where this is taught do not remain abstinent, there is still further damage than the students simply not knowing how to properly lubricate a penis when having sex.
It’s football season again and, for me, that means it’s the time of year when I pick the football team I follow in order to appease my modern-gladiatorial-game-watching friends. I’m completely astonished by the attendance and attention sports garner as a whole and believe that sports are a leech on society. From the simple waste of cash flow on basic coliseum-style entertainment, to doing the opposite of its assumed job of relaxing and calming people.
“Word and emotion together are the most powerful force known to mankind,” said Republican pollster Frank Luntz—perhaps best known for pushing the use of the terms “death tax” and “climate change” instead of “estate tax” and “global warming”.
In many ways, art is my
best friend—actually she’s my sister. I have pictures of me at seven months
old, pencil in hand, just doodling away. I got to pre-school and I would choose
painting over any other activity. In elementary, I preferred art over watching
movies. I think art has always been in my life and that is one reason for my
fondness of it. I don’t really think I could ever go a day without creating art
or even looking at it. It makes my life and those around me better—and to me,
therein lies the importance.
should realize that it is their obvious duty to vote for Donald Trump to be the
45th president of the United States. He is clearly an excellent reflection of
who Americans are, what we stand for and he is the president this country
deserves for as long as we go by the basis of the majority.
Republicans faced-off in Cleveland, Ohio in the first debate of the primaries
on August 6th and, just hours earlier, seven others had faced-off. I
thought a second debate was a bad idea, but was glad to be proven wrong.
Within a week of seeing my words “[I] see only two names on
the political horizon: Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton” in print last February, I
felt very silly. Bush and Clinton, names which have been on the forefront of
American political life for almost as long as I’ve been alive, might as well be
the county’s former future prime candidates. While there’s much that can be
said about Sanders or the woefully oversimplified Scandinavian model of which
he is a proponent, I find Trump’s candidacy more interesting.
