In the past few years there have been several attacks on countries by several groups of individuals. However, the thing that I’ve noticed is that anytime a terror attack has happened, we are way too quick to blame it on Islamic radicals, unless that person happens to have a whiter complexion. Then...

My sign language professor asked us if we would install a cochlear implant on our children if they were deaf. I expected a couple of students to raise their hands, saying that they would. However, I didn’t expect shallow, insulting and discriminatory reasoning. When my professor told us that cochl...

Did you see the recent Pepsi commercial? One of your Facebook friends did, and they are deeply offended and will be boycotting everything connected to it. Truly, the saga of our times. Whether we like it or not, controversial commercials and half-hearted boycotts are part of our modern world. It s...

Zero to 60 in just over two seconds, 840 horsepower and  770 pound-feet of torque. When people start talking about electric cars replacing gasoline cars, I will be pointing them towards these numbers of the new Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. If companies are still making these ridiculous performan...

It’s OK to feel overwhelmed sometimes. As the semester draws closer to its end, it’s easy to feel suffocated by the homework, tests, papers and general assignments. Or the dread that comes along with preparing to answer the question of what you’re going to do for the rest of your life once you ...

Two weeks ago, a frustrated museum curator posted a status on Facebook saying the ULM Museum of Natural History must find a new off-campus home for millions of research specimens, or else they would be destroyed under orders of administration. What really got people talking, though, was that the stat...

Don’t you hate it when someone looks over your shoulder while you are on your phone or computer? It’s a breach of privacy. What I am viewing on the internet is my business unless I choose to share it with someone else. Well, this fact may change very soon with a flourish of a pen on paper. The S...

The arts are important. Fortunately, I don’t think there are many people who would disagree with that statement. At least, not many sane people. In our culture, we celebrate the arts. They are a channel through which we can express our innermost thoughts and emotions. Art is what makes us unique, yet st...

I would never call myself normal, but I am an average 22-year-old. I enjoy margaritas, board games, books and movies. I also procrastinate my school work until the LAST minute. As I look around me, I see many people who are engaged or are already married. My best friend is already getting a divorce at...

When I first came to college, I hated going home because I knew the first question would always be about my grades. Everybody asked the same questions, and I would have to give the same generic answer. Don’t forget the forced smile, so, people won’t think I’m being rude. Now, my parents are only concerned w...
