  • Why the World is Running out of Pilots
    No Comment

    In the 1960s, the job of a pilot was seen as equal to that of a doctor. Pilots were treated like celebrities and paid almost as high. But that has since changed. According to Boeing, the world will need 790,000 pilots by 2037. However, a decreasing level of interest has made airlines nervous about the […]

  • Gender Inequality and #MeToo in Classical Music
    No Comment

    Western classical music, pertaining to 16-19th century European musical traditions (Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and so on), is often referred to, half facetiously, as “dead white men’s music” from the standpoint of our current society and culture.

  • Admitting to Human Difference
    No Comment

    As globalization continues to run its course, and people of different cultures engage in closer interactions, we are beginning to discover human differences. We look different, speak different languages, and hold different beliefs. I think people are generally at ease with these differences.

  • Why Are Republicans So Hellbent on Preserving Kavanaugh?
    No Comment

    Brett Kavanaugh is not fit for the Supreme Court. The mounting evidence that he likely did sexually assault three women on three different occasions should have been enough to disqualify him. But the 45-minute long, Trumpian tantrum he threw during his testimony on Thursday adds another important layer to Kavanaugh: he is an unabashed partisan […]
