Netflix seems to be on a rocket ship to the moon, from their record-breaking online subscriptions in the first six months of 2020 to their releasing of controversial media.

Getting dressed and going to class has been replaced by the new normal of pajamas and staying in bed. And with such a dramatic shift comes problems of focus and attendance during Zoom lectures.

Almost a third of first-time college students change their major at least one within three years, according to Inside Higher Ed. We live, we learn, we change our minds.

Let’s all admit it: Our lives were rudely interrupted by this pandemic. Many of us tragically lost our jobs.

The City of Monroe has teamed up with United Way of Northeast Louisiana to put out signs that say not to give money to panhandlers, and rightfully so. Panhandlers seem to be on every street corner in Monroe. This not only makes our city look unkempt, but also increases fear among the residents. What ...
