Over the past few decades, the ideologies and traditions of raising a family has changed. Families that once consisted of a hard-working father and a stay-at-home mother now consist of one parent trying to multitask the duties of two parents.
In this generation, the sole provider has been mothers. Mothers have been forced to take on the responsibility of raising children on their own without the help of the fathers.
The most common question I’ve gotten about the newspaper in the past couple weeks is something to the effect of “Why do you guys keep picking on Ron English?”
Last week I was able to sit down with Paul Schreiber, mayor of Ypsilanti, for an interview. We discussed the city’s Master Plan, the walkability of the city and how proposed infrastructure improvements would be financed.
I live in an off-campus apartment, as do many students here at Eastern, and a question I have, which I heard asked at the forum and am certain many of you have as well is this: What about our safety?
In the world of sports, new stadiums and arenas are built when their predecessors become outdated or obsolete. This is not a new concept, especially to downtown Detroit, which has seen two new stadiums pop up in the last 13 years.
The news is a broke city plans to help pay for a new sports arena.
I was as confused as I’m sure anybody would be when I heard the city of Detroit, which filed for bankruptcy in July, planned to help pay for a new arena for the Detroit Red Wings.
This year’s TruEMU campaign features several successful alumni. One of the power statements of the selected alumni proclaims, “I manifest my own destiny.” This may seem like a harmless statement in today’s context. It means that the individual is taking charge of her life to make her dreams a reality.
Violence has a tendency to be everywhere, even if we don’t exactly notice it.
A professor once taught me “Diversity does not equal equality.” I commend him for this, framing the idea of diversity in a way I have never encountered. There is a difference between the two and they rarely, if ever, live in harmony.
I can't recall the first time I saw or met Larry Cathey. But I can say one thing ... I'd bet my ranch he had his Tigers hat on. Backward, as always.
There are those people in the world who make an impact on your life, just by hearing about them from other people or looking at the results of hard work they did to accomplish something.
Larry Cathey was one of those people.
I don’t know that I would call the Master Plan overly optimistic, and don’t mean for my analysis to be pessimistic, but I worry about how the city plans to pay for any of its amelioration efforts.
Church isn’t one rigid definition or place – it’s a living element. It’s people. The old notions of church aren’t as true as they may appear. Church is fellowship and love with people in motion.
Today, I’m only writing to Eastern Echo readers who agree with me that it’s the Republican Party – not socialism, communism or terrorism – which is now the single greatest threat to American national security. We have met the enemy, and they are the GOP.
The city is certainly in a rut, but it hasn’t fallen off a fiscal cliff like Detroit.
Our constitutional framework is not effective without continual reinforcement by our citizens – you and me. If the people don’t put up a mighty resistance every time the 1 percent try to take over, the aristocracy aggrandizes itself.
There is an epidemic spreading across America today. It has lead to senseless killings and fear mongering in ways that would keep George Orwell up at night cowering beneath his bed sheets.
Halloween is a time for expressing yourself, dressing up and having fun. This year, many college students aren’t shying away from wearing costumes that will get their peers talking. But because of this, colleges have something new to be concerned about.
“If you like your health insurance, you can keep it,” President Barack Obama said in 2009 and 2010 as he advocated for the passage of health care reform.
That line is now being played over and over in the news media in light of evidence that Obama’s assurances may have been less than truthful.
Modern society seems to have this love-hate relationship with the concept of chivalry.
