6:36 PM. Some of the first polls on the east coast have closed. The anticipation of the Blue Wave is high tonight.
Voting should be easier. This is a commonly held belief, yet there isn’t a consensus as to how to amend the problem. The United States fares poorly in voter turnout compared with other countries to an embarrassing extent. According to U.S.
Last week, I watched in awe as Derrick Rose dropped a career high 50 points against the defensively-minded Utah Jazz.
Cecil Rosenthal, a victim in the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting, was a member of the organization Best Buddies.
In a recent Badger Herald opinion piece, a UW student criticized The Associated Students of Madison’s advisory role in the University, arguing that it does not have legitimate power because of a lack of direct enforcement capabilities.
It is ironic that people on this campus are upset over a mock apartheid wall yet are not upset over the fact that it represents the actual apartheid wall in Israel that blatantly denies Palestinians the right to return to their homelands and restricts their movement through the oppressive body that Israel is and always has been. Students for Justice in Palestine held a demonstration on Library Mall on Oct. 18, 2018, in memorializing 70 years of occupation the Palestinian people are undergoing today at the hands of Israel.
This summer I read Yossi Klein Halevi’s book, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor. Each chapter is a letter directly addressed to his Palestinian neighbors, who live in the town adjacent to his settlement in the West Bank.
Among list marks of millennial I the can’t laundry stand hallmarks I can’t stand lies the phrase “entitlement,” closely followed by Tinder and veganized pastries. Baby boomers and Gen Xers think we’re ignorant to their reductive perception: The millennial girl Snapchatting down the street, disengaged, drafting a mental coordinate plot of every Starbucks within a 5 mile radius, on her way to 8 a.m.

Many people see the position of governor as someone who appears on TV every once in a while to unveil grandiose plans that never seem to happen, or as someone who provides leadership only in times of trouble, such as during natural disasters. Gubernatorial races don’t receive the same amount of attention that national elections do even from populations that are likely to vote, let alone from young people. This attitude could not be more misguided.
Hundreds of miles from Madison, in the nation’s capital, a small group of rich white men is once again threatening our most basic human rights.
It seems like every day I turn on the news, I don’t like what I see. I read headlines and get angry and worried about what is happening in my country; yet I turn away, I keep scrolling, I think ‘there’s nothing that I can do’ and instead watch cute puppy videos to cool my rage.
To hinder a student’s academic endeavors for one’s own political disposition, allowing personal politics to infringe on a student’s academic life, is simply absurd.
Over the summer, dozens of news outlets rallied their editorial boards and published coordinated statements decrying President Trump’s hostile rhetoric toward news media, specifically his declaration that journalists are “enemies of the people.” Arguing that a free press is a cornerstone in a functioning democracy, these organizations pointed out the dangers of living in a society where the government works in darkness and no systems exist to disclose its work. Trump is not the first leader to be frustrated with coverage of their presidency, and he will not be the last.
Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing opening statement consisted of fun-filled memories and heartfelt thank-you’s. He expressed how much he loves his family, adding light-hearted anecdotes about his wife and kids. He was trying to relate to you. Maybe he succeeded.
Let’s just admit it. We’ve all done it. Scrolling through Twitter, and there’s a new tweet from the president of the United States.
