Drivers and pedestrians both have their set of rules of the road to follow. Everybody knows about the situation when a pedestrian is trying to cross the street or is already crossing the street, they have the law on their side and they are to have the ability to cross the street unhindered. But ju...

Conspiracy theories are everywhere, even Denver’s airport

While I do not believe in conspiracy theories as a whole, I do enjoy researching them so I can see what people can theorize about certain places, events or people. There are prevalent conspiracy theories on events such as 9/11 or the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, but I recently came across con...

Just be courteous, it’s not that hard to do

Normally, I do not find myself caring about what other people do. I have myself and my own actions to worry about and that is more than enough. But there is one thing about some people that will never fail to perplex me: an absolute lack of courtesy. Saying “hi” to familiar faces, including the e...

Welcome back, Panthers! I hope everybody’s first week back wasn’t too stressful. I wouldn’t describe mine as profusely stressful, per se. I also wouldn’t describe it as exactly overwhelming, but I also wouldn’t say I’m underwhelmed. I started my week, probably the way most of us did, by worryi...

Don’t judge people for their sex lives

I believe the way we view sexuality in this country needs reform, especially in terms of women’s sexuality. In high school I dated a guy that, when it came out we had fooled around, I was immediately labeled a “whore” and a “slut.”  I thought that was absolutely crazy. I mean, I wasn’t ...

Government shutdown is a tantrum by an unfit president

How can we take President Donald Trump seriously when he lies straight to our faces? The current government shutdown is nothing more then an outburst from an unfit political leader. In fact, U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer called the shutdown a temper tantrum, saying, “The president of the United States having f...

The light changes from red to green. The third car in front of you sits there for too long, indicating that they are distracted. Someone in front of you honks their horn to make them aware that they need to go.  They finally go, but by the time they get moving, the light turns yellow, and you have to...

Now that winter break is over, my fellow Eastern classmates and I are scrambling to readjust to classes and keep up with the seemingly never-ending homework load. I’m a sucker for organization and routine, and you’ll find small flashes of this if you’ve read any of my other columns—I try to wake...

Want to know a clever way to throw away hundreds or thousands of dollars in one day? You probably don’t want to know, but we know (since several members of the editorial staff are guilty of it) that many of you have done it before. Yeah, we’re talking about skipping class. If you’ve live...

My winter break was quite eventful

School is back in session, and I for one can’t be any happier. I love seeing my friends and other familiar faces across campus once again. It was nice to be on a break, but I do not like to be bored for too long or I get stir crazy. Fortunately, my break was not boring. My family had a lot of thi...
