I’ve been debating whether or not to respond to Jason Hill’s recent article. It seems everything he publishes is specifically written to provoke outrage and gain him some publicity. However, it’s important that someone call him out for his behavior. His words are damaging, and as a member of t...

It’s been a rough year, to put it lightly. My 2019 was riddled with highs and lows, including relationships dissolving, signing on my first apartment, securing a great internship and existential stress about what I want to do with my life. All of these typical young adult milestones and their sy...

It’s time for us to stop using the term fake news. We should eliminate the phrase altogether from our vocabulary because it’s lazy, problematic and does a disservice to hardworking journalists who are trying to provide truth, facts and transparency in today’s alternative facts society. The term fake news i...

Who remembers Easy-Bake Ovens? Impossibly expensive ovens for little children to make chemical filled cookies in an oven with a lightbulb for baking. Well, I remember. When Santa Claus came to one of the shelters my family and I were staying at when I was a child, an Easy-Bake Oven was my present. ...

It’s nearly impossible nowadays to scroll through Twitter and miss who’s fallen prey to the vigorous jaws of cancel culture.

I lived in my grandparents’ house when I was younger and there was a big play area for us kids to play in. It was filled with random toys and a kitchen with a slide as well. Randomly, I would hear the toys go off and they would move. Next thing I would hear is my grandma say, “Hi Mark, how are...

As I tuned in last Tuesday night into the Democratic debate, I saw 12 different faces on the stage; this means 12 different voices and 12 different arguments to pay attention to.
