Generation Z needs to help older generations learn about diversity

Educating people who do not understand the importance of diversity is important.
Written By Brooke Stephens, Opinions Editor November 30, 2022
Generation Z, for those who do not know yet, is the generation that comes after Millennials. The age range in 2022 typically falls from 18-25, but in some circles, the generation could arguably span a few more years in either direction. The post-millennial generation has gained increasing representation in the public eye, largely for pushing the right to vote and basic human rights. In the media, we are most often known for eating Tide Pods.

Happy last issue before Thanksgiving break, Pioneers! It’s hard to believe that this is already week 12. We are so close to the end of the semester that it is in hand’s reach. Take a moment to pat yourself on the back for all of your hard work.

In theory the idea of an automatic soap dispenser is a good idea. It’s a way to reduce contact germs and portion the amounts of soap that people receive. And as it was pointed out to me, it's also a great tool for the handicapped. Yet this tool is flawed. It favors facilities over consumers and the amount of soap that it portions out is completely inadequate for what anyone should need to wash their hands.

The Pennsylvania General Election took place on Tuesday, November 8th, 2022 and was one of the most highly-contentious elections the state has ever had.

Democracy is on the ballot at this year’s midterm elections

Mastriano and Oz are disingenuous, Democratic candidates give minority communities hope
Written By Jake Dabkowski, Editor-in-Chief November 2, 2022
I’d like to start this opinion piece by emphasizing that The Globe does not endorse political candidates. While I am the Editor-In-Chief of The Globe, any perceived endorsement I am about to make is by my own free will and does not represent the opinions of any other member of The Globe or of the publication at large. Likewise, despite the fact that I have opinions on the election, this does not mean that our coverage has been or will be biased toward any candidate - we simply report the facts. This concludes the disclaimer portion of this article.
