Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is reversing a century of employment reform to reduce the state’s debt. As a result, Wisconsin has turned into a ‘Nam protest’. Actually bigger, according to crowd estimates mentioned in The Christian Science Monitor. New is news. Gov. Walker hasn’t hired Pinkerton goons to strong arm the unions yet, but probably just because he doesn’t want to escalate matters. For those not in the know, a Pinkerton is the protagonist of “Bioshock: Infinite.”
Best. Experience. Ever. Ever had one of those? If you have, you know they are extremely satisfying and make you feel so good about yourself. If not, there’s an opportunity for you to have one right here at Eastern.
Certain things seem to cause a cascading effect. One group does something and all the other groups start to follow suit.
Among all the chaos of recent headlines, the one that may most critically and directly affect me personally seems to me, the most ridiculous. You might have heard of the Republican attack on Planned Parenthood and other provisions that kill essential health programs. Perhaps not so widely covered was the U.S. helicopter that gunned down nine young boys in Afghanistan or the increasingly despicable treatment of Bradley Manning.
Saint Patrick’s Day is one of revelry, food and alcohol consumption, is it not? It’s a day for people to go out to their favorite bar and drink themselves into oblivion on a bevy of dyed-green-light-beers.
President Barack Obama has had his problems since taking office, but everyone can agree he’s probably the best politician in the country. His 2008 presidential campaign was nearly flawless and managed to unseat a front runner and defeated a beloved war hero before then-Senator Obama had even spent a full term in the Senate.
Last year, student Julea Ward was expelled from Eastern Michigan University. She had been enrolled in a master’s program in pursuit of certification to be a school counselor. Her expulsion was warranted by her refusal to counsel homosexual students.
Last week, I wrote the Republican Party is suffering from an illness. At first my diagnosis was simply the carunculous Tea Party, but now I feel it is something different, or at least more than first suspected. The symptoms seem much more cerebral. It is as if the party has been suffering from a “brain-drain” as of late.
Last week, after what seemed like years of speculation, The New York Times finally announced its plan to put all of its online content beyond a pay wall, making it the first major news outlet to do so.
I loathe Evan Bayh, the former senator from Indiana, and either for reasons of catharsis or clarity, I thought it necessary to dedicate an entire column to my dislike of the “Democrat.” A few weeks ago, I read Bayh was signing on to be a contributor for Fox News, and without shock but much chagrin, I thought this is exactly the conundrum “centrists” pose for the Democratic Party.
_The Eastern Echo_ editorial board has decided to endorse Jelani McGadney for the position of Student Body President and Jeff Chicoine as Student Body Vice President in the upcoming election at Eastern Michigan University. Of the pool of candidates, we feel McGadney provided the best plans to address students’ concerns.
The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team wrapped up the 2010-11 season with a 24-13 record. That record represents the most wins in the program’s history as well as most games played in program history and the program’s first national tournament victories. All of these accomplishments helped this team develop its own Cinderella story.
In the last two days, you have probably voted for Student Body President, or at least heard someone on campus talking about the election. You might have seen chalk on the sidewalk or found one of the candidates chatting with a group of students in the library or Student Center.
A few weeks ago on The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart sat down with the newbie senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul. The two discussed the budget, running deficits and the Tea Party. It all seemed so genuine, however, the most striking segment of the conversation surrounded federal regulations and the right place for the government in the marketplace.
People say this all the time, but seriously, is it just me, or does it seem like this semester has everyone with their heads down and super stressed?
This Tuesday will mark the one-year anniversary of the Upper Big Branch mine disaster in southern West Virginia.
March 28, President Barack Obama gave a speech defending the military actions against Libya. He also detailed how Europe would take center stage in the conflict, rather than the United States.
I recently experienced a rude awakening as a result of a hit-and-run accident. My boyfriend, Zach Baker, was skateboarding to the store Feb.
It won’t come as a surprise to most of you that the state budget woes are causing some panic at public universities across Michigan.
One of my favorite songs is “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted?” by Jimmy Ruffin. I started thinking about the song after reading about how the effects of long-term unemployment are crippling my generation. Albeit the song is talking about love rather than joblessness, I think the lyrics can serve as the somber anthem for this generation, nonetheless.
