Study A-blog: Reluctance

BY AUSTIN DAVIS

Americans talk a lot about affordable education, but without a change in mentality from pacification to action, this will never be accomplished. It’s no wonder why I’m reluctant to return home: I don’t know that I’ll be able to afford it once I get there.

Study A-blog: Life in transit

BY JESSE KLEIN

When I am on the bus I physically am unable to do anything productive except read a book or listen to music. It’s my time to decompress before I start my homework or planning my next excursion.

Feminine Critique: Time to move on

BY EMMA MANIERE

I realize that pop culture icons can be a good gateway for budding feminists, but for those already devoted to the cause, let’s move on.

Social Disorder: Anger and Violence

BY CONNOR WOOD

When a boy is born, bombarded with gendered instructions to suppress his feelings, sees an incredible amount of violence and anger in the media (and probably in real life), and then one day snaps under the weight of the world and shoots twenty people in a restaurant somewhere, are we surprised? We shouldn’t be, and I’m not.

Blogging Blue: No Kudos for Obamacare

BY MICHAEL CASEY

We still have quite a ways to go until the midterm elections, but it remains to be seen whether, as in the Michigan senate race, Democratic candidates like congressman Gary Peters (D–Mich.) can reframe the Affordable Care Act so that the public is more aware of its policy successes and, more importantly, give credit to Democrats for their support of the law.

Building Blocks: Riding the wave

BY ABHISHEK CAULIGI

Study A-blog: To Lucinda from Chapel Hill

BY AUSTIN DAVIS

If somehow you find this apology in cyber-land, I hope it serves as my second impression. If this apology accomplishes nothing in changing your very limited opinion of me — Lucinda from Chapel Hill — I hope that at the very least it shows you that I’m an asshole who now remembers your name, and who can apologize.

Social Disorder: Organizing for student change

BY CONNOR WOOD

CSG will not be able to effect the kind of high-level change we so desperately need at this University. It just doesn’t have the muscle. Students do. Want to accomplish something at this school? Organize.

The Feminine Critique: The minimum wage is a women's issue

BY ERIN KWEDERIS

The low minimum wage is a contributing factor to the feminization of poverty. There are millions of women working full-time who are just barely above the poverty line for a single person.

Do you have any idea what has happened in my life while I watched Michigan Basketball, while I watched How I Met Your Mother? Just… all kinds of stuff.

Feminine Critique: Why I listen to Beyoncé

BY PHOEBE YOUNG

Beyoncé Knowles

Listening to Beyoncé isn’t just about doing the “Single Ladies” dance; it’s also a reminder that I shouldn’t have to make a choice between work and a family when I grow up, that I shouldn’t be afraid to advocate for myself, and that I don’t have to be either feminine or powerful.

Daily In-Jest: Banana bandit caught!

BY ANDREW LIEBERMAN

No one knows what will happen to the banana bandit, but I know one thing, I feel a lot safer on campus now; maybe not safer in terms of “safety” but in terms of equity. If you think you can just take more unlimited food than you’re allowed, you’re crazy.

Seeing Red: A Friday in Istanbul

BY OMAR MAHMOOD

On a Friday in Istanbul, we were standing in the courtyard of one of the most celebrated shrines in the world. On a Friday in Istanbul, of all the people there, I found God in a homeless man and a little girl and her mother.

The Feminine Critique: Birth control decision in the Court

BY EMMA MANIERE

Of course, as this decision primarily impacts women, gender dynamics are also at play — even if this dynamic will not necessarily (or at least admittedly) influence the Court’s ultimate decision.
