• The Fate of Disney+
    No Comment

    In November of 2017, I wrote an article focusing on Disney’s intent to acquire 20th Century Fox. While for a time it looked like Comcast might swoop in and purchase 20th Century Fox, it looks like Disney will be purchasing 20th Century Fox, though, at the moment, the purchase is not yet official. But, with […]

    Everyone in America is some type of consumer. The economy depends on it, whether one is contributing to a small business or a large corporation. Americans often seem to pour their hard earned pay checks into businesses they may know nothing about. Although all companies have faults, it is important to be investing in ones […]

  • The Mess We’re Failing to Manage: Plastics
    No Comment

    Nowadays, whenever I take a walk on the streets, I see baskets full of disposable utensils from take-outs. Plastics have become an indispensable part of our lives. It is all around us: from big machines like a refrigerator to small plastic bags from bodegas. Human beings are so used to plastics being around that we […]

  • The Ballad of Jeff Sessions
    No Comment

    It’s quite ironic that one of the first members of Congress to endorse Trump—former Attorney General Jeff Sessions—became one of his bitter foes. And it’s even more surprising that Democrats became some of the most outspoken defenders of the chief architect of family separation policy. Donald Trump’s demagoguery has surely created some strange bedfellows. From […]

  • The Man Stuck in the Airport

    Navigating delayed flights to snaking long queues at immigration counters are just a few of the problems that the average traveller may often face while at an airport. Frustrating as these may be, one man’s plight overshadows them all. Stuck in an airport for a measly 6 hours? Scratch that. Now, imagine being stuck at […]

    There is no doubt that the college application process is confusing and emotional. Not only is it extremely difficult to discover what and where you want to study, but you also have to complete a lengthy application and write essays in hopes of being admitted.

  • What Were You Wearing?
    No Comment

    Sexual assault victims are often pushed aside, questioned,  and degraded. One of the most common questions asked of survivors is “Well, what were you wearing?”. This disrespects and devalues the experience of the person. Also, it is inferiorizing, especially after a devastating assault. These judgements against survivors are now ingrained in American culture. Colleges across […]

  • 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. Most of the Western classical music people listen to historically and nowadays has been composed by European males. The […]
