Roy Moore’s career should be over

The entertainment industry has been rocked in recent weeks by sexual misconduct allegations against multiple powerful men in Hollywood. Once the accusers of Harvey Weinstein came forward, more and more women shared their stories or alleged misconduct by many other bold names, including actor Kevin Spacey and comedian Louis C.K. It would be naïve to believe this culture of powerful, abusive men is exclusive to the entertainment...

The calm before the storm: Finals

With Thanksgiving break quickly approaching, students around campus are counting down the days until they have some time off. However, the excitement students have about the break is quickly forgotten the moment they remember what follows those few days of relaxation: final exams. For many students, final exams are the most stressful time of the semester. Hours of studying, writing and preparing for tests and papers can become a...

A new governor may give N.J. what it needs – prioritization

On Jan. 16, 2018, Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will leave office, making way for Democrat Phil Murphy, who was elected on Tuesday. It has been an interesting eight years with Christie as governor, to say the least. Though his approval ratings are currently at a record low, he still did some good for the state. He had a tough stance on and fought a hard battle with New Jersey’s opioid epidemic. He also supported N.J....

It is not weak to grieve

On June 29 my father passed away due to health complications. Though it’s been months, I am still not sure I will ever fully recover. Some days, I feel perfectly normal. However, for each of those days, there comes one where I will see a shirt of his on the stairs or I will stare at the tomato plants he planted in the spring as they begin to wither away. These times have been some of my most difficult, but I’m learning to control the...

Just put your phones down and enjoy the show

Before most concerts start, there is an exciting buzz in the air. The recorded music played before the show starts lowers and the lights turn off. Then, the phones come out. People raise their arms, usually holding their phones horizontally to get the whole stage in their shot, and start recording. The talent comes on the stage, only to see hundreds of phones staring back at them. I sometimes have to watch the concert through the...

With terror on the rise, hypocrisy is our worst enemy

Whenever there’s an attack on United States soil, whether it was carried out by a terrorist or not, the American people turn on each other instead of the enemy. Everyone wants to point fingers at the other side, seemingly scrambling to find someone to place quick blame on. When we do this, we distract ourselves from the real problem and the potential solutions that could fix it. We’re seeing this now in the days following the...

Calming our president’s storm

Trump is certainly good at one thing: social irresponsibility. As a conservative-libertarian, I observe the endless barrage of cacophony on various media outlets and recognize the never-ending bitterness dividing not only the country, but also the Republican Party. Trump, in part, a consequence of the Republican Party’s internal bloodbath, continually exacerbates the current divisions within the party and the nation. Rather than...

We’re getting too distracted

For some reason, our country tends to gravitate toward ridiculous drama, pulling our attention away from topics we should be focusing on. We focus on articles that highlight the spectacle currently on display in our administration; we read about President Donald Trump and other politicians denouncing NFL players for kneeling in protest instead of reading about the growing nuclear threat in North Korea. We read articles that focus...

Open your eyes people, racism is far from dead

Some may think that because it’s 2017 that it’s common sense to treat others with dignity and respect. Unfortunately that thought is wrong. There are now two open investigations regarding racially charged incidents that were aimed at students of Seton Hall. These incidents, an email and a social media post, happened within two weeks of each other and were both done in cowardice. The authors of the email and the post concealed...

Artificial intelligence is nothing for you to fear

As new technology develops, there is a rising consensus among prominent scientists that artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race. Although this belief is ubiquitous, it is not necessarily true. The reality is that there are a lot of assumptions and implications generated from such a belief. You should not believe that artificial intelligence is dangerous simply because prominent scientists believe so. We know that...

Land of the free, home of the semi-automatics

It’s sickening that we had to scroll through our news feeds after waking up on Monday morning and read about yet another horrific mass shooting. The awful the Las Vegas massacre, which was preceded by the Dallas sniper attack, the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting, the San Bernardino attack, the Aurora, Colorado massacre and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. These senseless acts of violence happened over the span of five years...

We need stricter gun control in the United States

Stephen Paddock was found with 23 guns in his Mandalay Bay hotel room after he shot and killed 59 people in Las Vegas on Sunday. An additional 19 guns were found in his Mesquite, Nev. home. Omar Mateen, whose name was on two federal watch lists for being a known ISIS supporter, easily purchased two handguns within a week before murdering 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. The guns that were legally obtained by these men took...
