Legal Corruption

UNITED STATES—I’ve always questioned our legal system and for good reason, as it appears the idea of obtaining justice isn’t something that those in power care to display. One of my colleagues wrote a piece last week about the case involving teenager Audrie Pott who committed suicide in California after being sexually assaulted by several teens at a party. Those...

Fruit, Veggies Or Junk Food?

UNITED STATES—Why is it when it comes to grabbing a quick snack that we always reach for junk food? It’s something I ask myself time and time again, and continue to grapple with when it comes to eating healthy. It’s like when you enter the grocery store the number of junk items is multiplied by thousands. So what can we...

All Work And No Play

UNITED STATES—By now, I know most of you have heard about that trend of all work and no play, but why has that theory been constantly pushed in a society that seems to have more people playing than actually working? There are indeed some problems with the recent generations of wanting to play, play, play and not work. I’m...

Men Vs. Women: Shopping?

UNITED STATES—It has been known for years that women love to shop, but it has never fully been debated rather men or women are better shoppers. Of course, I’m going to receive plenty of hate from this column, as I advocate the male species as being better shoppers and I’ll explain why in full detail. There are plenty of...

Cash Or Credit?

UNITED STATES—Haven’t we all heard that phrase time and time again: cash or credit? It’s that option that tends to be expected anytime we pay for something in most retail stores or any place where we obtain a service. I had that experience this past weekend, while shopping for some items for an impending vacation. It was almost funny...

Common Courtesy

UNITED STATES—What is it about Americans nowadays where they seem to care nothing about the impact their behavior has on others. Just the other day I was out and about, and a man nearly careened right into me because he was on his cell phone and not paying attention. I mean, “What the hell?” Why do people exhibit this...

March Madness Arrives

UNITED STATES—Well its that time of year, March Madness! On Sunday, the NCAA announced the teams that would receive a bid in the tournament that has mesmerized basketball fans and those not fans of the sport for years. I can personally speak about the craze because as an undergraduate I worked directly with athletes at my Alma mater which...

High Intensity Or Time Intensity?

UNITED STATES—Exercise is something that we all must do to maintain a healthy body and spirit. Lately reports have been surfacing left and right that the amount of time that you exercise is not as important anymore, but the level of intensity that you do has more impact on the body. Ok, let’s say this is accurate, why has...

The Email Scandal

UNITED STATES—Possible Presidential candidate for 2016, Hillary Clinton has been under fire recently for using a private email while she was employed as the Secretary of State, something that has been deemed illegal by many. I think this is just the ammunition that the Republican Party was hoping to gain to discredit the politician who is likely a front-runner...

Racism In America

UNITED STATES—The issue of race is an ongoing debate in America, and it’s not something that will disappear overnight. Just when we think as a nation we’re making strides something transpires that brings the dialogue about race back to the forefront. By now most of you have heard about the video footage that was released of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon...
