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.
For those who didn’t know, Eastern Michigan’s women’s basketball team became the first fifth seed to make an appearance in the Mid American Conference tournament. It did so by sending the No. 1-seeded Toledo home Friday and played in the championship game Saturday.
It’s cliché to say anything can happen during March Madness, but that doesn’t make it any less true.
The state of Michigan is represented by three teams in this year’s NCAA Tournament: Michigan State University, Oakland University and the University of Michigan.
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.
It’s impossible to ignore the flurry of opinions yet difficult to discern the facts of the current nuclear crisis. What is clear is the massive impact of the recent earthquakes and tsunami damage on Japan’s multiple nuclear reactors, which are still steaming radioactive material.
Eight years ago on March 19, 2003, the United States government flouted international law and defied the millions who protested in the U.S. and around the world by unilaterally invading Iraq. The rape of Iraq undoubtedly will be recorded as one of greatest crimes of the 21st century.
Though Mitt Romney dropped out of the 2008 presidential race in order to give John McCain a better shot, it looks like he is back and intending to run for 2012.
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.
With the recent missile strikes in Libya by allied forces, some people are becoming concerned Libya will become the next Iraq. This is unlikely, however.
When winter begins to fade and the days grow warmer, Michigan becomes invigorated. People start going back outside for pleasure and begin to naturally pigment their skin. However, with the good of the newly reinvigorated spring comes the bad. I refer to things like people walking in the road, and more frustratingly, cyclists in the road.
_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.
Charles Ramsey, coach of the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team has gone six seasons as the man calling the shots for the Eagles. But the results of the 2010-2011 season seem to be a too familiar sight for Eagles fans.
