Let me set the scene for you: 1967, the year the Globe debuted, was at the tail end of the Civil Rights movement, during the second wave  of white feminism, and before the Stonewall riots. It was a time of historical movements that stemmed from people trying to improve their livelihoods, obtain equal...

It’s been said that Valentine’s Day is an unfortunate holiday for two kinds of people — those who are single and those who aren’t. Generally, for people who are single, it’s a reminder (and quite frankly a big fish to the face) that you don’t have anyone to cuddle with while watching Shameless...

I think we can all agree that CulinArt is a better food service provider than Aramark. The people are nice, too. One thing I seem to notice, especially in the dining hall, is the disrespect given to those who prepare and serve our food. Sometimes they feel that their work goes unappreciated by the...

In the past week, President Donald Trump has certainly been sending a message to the American people, though what he intends that message to be, I am not sure. Based on his list of memorandums and executive orders, it seems to me to be a message of his arrogance to a number of situations and ...

Now that “The Donald” has declared “we will build the wall” and authorized via his signature the start of the ground plan for the wall, it’s a good time to see how this can happen. It’s estimated the wall, which has to cover 2,000 miles, could cost between $80 billion to $200 billion,...

As a man, I find it difficult to speak about abortion. Not only is it sensitive subject matter to begin with, but as someone who biologically cannot have children, the topic only gets dicier. It’s a thin line to walk, a slippery slope of religiously swayed opinions, teetering sensitivities and cold-hard...

The media’s job is to inform the public. This is the gold standard for any journalist. So why did White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer center his very first press briefing around “alternative facts,” and why did Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to President Donald Trump, back him up? Spicer...

On my way into campus every day during the election season, I drove past a sign that read “stop bigotry and hate speech.” As I began to move forward this past November, that sign engraved itself in my mind. Soon we will swear into office our first president who openly mocks disabled individuals...

On April 30, 1789, the first Inauguration Day in American history, George Washington took the first oath of office. Sworn in at our nation’s first capital, New York City, Washington later said of his new role, “I walk on untrodden ground.” Our country’s first president experienced the rollercoaster...
