Does the Susan G. Komen Foundation truly care about preventing breast cancer, or is there a political agenda that influences its decisions? The former seems to be true after the foundation’s president resigned in response to public outcry against the decision to cut funding to Planned Parenthood.
Keep A Breast Foundation is a national non-profit organization dedicated to preventing and eradicating cancer for the American public. Perhaps its most famous move is the backing of the humorous and some would say provocative, “I Love Boobies” bracelets. While the bands were certainly born from good intentions, we must question the implications of such a sentiment.
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. A day of romance, love, cards, chocolate and murdered gangsters.
The amazing thing about the current campaign finance laws is exactly no one is happy with them. The Left thinks the current situation offers the wealthy too much power, and the Right thinks this climate awkwardly restricts free speech.
Detroit Tigers fans were given reprieve from an unlikely source after the news came that Victor Martinez will not play in 2012. The Tigers inked Prince Fielder to an outrageous contract for nine years, worth $214 million.
Gov. Steve Beshear, Democrat of Kentucky, has lent his support to a creationist theme park, Ark Adventure, commissioned by Answers in Genesis. He has not only lent his support vocally, but he has itemized in the state’s budget a tax break worth $43 million for the park. This story appeared on The Huffington Post, and I couldn’t have been more confounded.
When thinking of young children, most people assign adjectives such as hyper, curious, inquisitive or active.
“So what we get drunk, so what we smoke weed, we’re just havin’ fun and we don’t care who sees!” This is the opening line of the popular song “Young, Wild and Free,” from rappers Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg. The anthem predictably champions marijuana usage, and I can think of few people who are better to create such a song.
Several months ago, I used this space to make a case that the United States should commit to sending a man to Mars by the end of the decade. We need the Kennedy-esque goal for innovation, inspiration and morale.
Unions are a facet many people living in Michigan are tied to. The state has dealt with them since the New Deal, when the Roosevelt Administration finally allowed the unions to represent workers free of corporate obstruction.
In the parlance of a classic “who done it” in the case of the crash on Wall Street, I’d like to think the federal government was at fault in that it aided and abetted the megabanks and investment firms as they committed the actual robbery.
You cannot look at the modern era of football without first acknowledging the prowess and dominance of the New England Patriots. Since Bill Belichick took over the team in 2000, the Patriots have won three Super Bowls out of the four they reached, won all 16 regular season games for the first time in NFL history in 2007, and broken countless team and individual records in the process. Belichick has three AP Coach of the Year awards, one less than the legendary Don Shula.
One year after the outbreak of the Egyptian Revolution, millions of workers and students took to the streets throughout Egypt to protest the dictatorship of the U.S.-backed military junta, the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), and demand the ouster of its head, General Mohamed Hussein Tantawi.
New federal regulations regarding student financial aid are not being kind to Eastern Michigan University. In a Jan. 23 article, The Eastern Echo mentioned, “students who were full-time during fall and winter semesters will no longer be eligible for Pell Grants during the upcoming summer semester.” Where students could once use two years worth of aid per year to speed along graduation, this option is no longer available.
I compete for the Eastern Michigan University forensics team. As a result, I meet people from all over the country who share a love for interpretation, critical analysis and communication in general. However, I was caught off guard when a woman I met from Illinois State University gave a speech in which she proudly declared that she was “Greek,” that is, she is in a sorority.
I’m sure you’ve been glued to your televisions, computers and smartphones for the last few weeks watching the Republican primary unfold. We lost Cain, Bachmann, Huntsman and Perry for various reasons and we’re down to Romney, Gingrich, Santorum and Paul.
As many know, orientation is a pretty big deal here at Eastern Michigan University. It’s an intense four-day experience that helps acclimate incoming students to their new surroundings while also giving them a chance to bond with fellow students. Only, a lot of work goes into our orientation, and it absolutely wouldn’t be possible without a very passionate group of individuals known as New Student Orientation Assistant.
If you’ve been listening to the GOP hopefuls for the presidency you might think President Obama is not only a terrible commander-in-chief (who should launch a strike on Iran immediately), but somebody who’s carried out a massacre of the business community.
For fans of Google, Wikipedia, Reddit and Tumblr, the reasoning behind the “blackout” day on Jan. 18 is important because it brings attention to the public’s right to use the Internet uncensored. The “Stop Online Piracy Act” and “Protect IP Act” bills caused outraged citizens to immediately start protesting online.
Jan. 18, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder presented his first State of the State Address. Unfortunately, he not declaring the name redundant and in need of change, he did say that us Michiganders are “…in a crisis unmatched in the 60 plus years of our state.”
