Students Not Expelled! ...But Fight Not Over
By : John Robinson - Wednesday December 7, 2005
By John Robinson Hampton University students faced disciplinary hearings on Dec 2, 2005 at 9:00 am in the Student Center cyber lounge. As I arrived I immediately noticed bands of protesters already picketing right outside the University. By the time the six other students and I met with the parents and lawyers in front of the room that the hearing was to be held, there were already over 20 student supporters standing right outside the door. As we made last minute preparations to our (...)

Students rebuffing military recruiters. More high schoolers in state opt out of lists
By : Maria Sacchetti and Jenna Russell - Monday November 14, 2005
By Maria Sacchetti and Jenna Russell More than 5,000 high school students in five of the state’s largest school districts have removed their names from military recruitment lists, a trend driven by continuing casualties in Iraq and a well-organized peace movement that has urged students to avoid contact with recruiters. The number of students removing their names has jumped significantly over the past year, especially in school systems with many low-income and minority students, (...)

By : Robert Zeliger - Sunday November 13, 2005

by Robert Zeliger Tuesday’s school board election in Dover, Pennsylvania, a quiet rural community near the Maryland border where churches seem to outnumber streetlights, was a fitting climax to a year of bitter division there. In a contest with national implications, Dover voters tossed an entire slate of Intelligent Design supporters, replacing them with backers of evolution. The eight incumbents, calling themselves “Dover First,” were defendants in a lawsuit over a (...)

A Natural Inspiration Just for a moment, can we all jump ahead, say one or two years from now, into what could be a very real scenario. The draft has been reinstated. Our sons and daughters are faced with the choice of going to war or jail. Parents are in shock. They can’t believe this has happened to their very own. Shock turns to anger and confusion. Their former lack of concern and awareness of their government’s imperialistic agenda is starting to become the biggest mistake (...)

David Boren Is Already Changing History About the University of Oklahoma Bomb
By : Michael P. Wright - Monday October 3, 2005

At this time the FBI is identifying University of Oklahoma junior Joel Henry Hinrichs III "as the person who was killed when an explosive attached to his body detonated near a packed football stadium," according to the Associated Press. He is listed in the OU directory as an engineering student. If this is true, it does not verify the claim of OU president David Boren that this was just an "individual suicide" with no terrorist intentions. It does not rule out the possibility of an (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
