U.S. national parks being affected by climate change, study finds

I want to bring awareness to a disturbing statistic about how temperature increase is leading to the impending destruction of America’s national parks. As symbols of our country and natural sanctuaries, we need to protect the ecosystems and landscapes reserved for our enjoyment. A September 2018 CNN article, titled, “America’s national parks are warming and drying up faster than the rest of the country, says a new study,” cited a...

Past & Present Serena comes out in U.S. Open fiasco

Since beginning her professional career in 1995, Serena Williams has been somewhat of an enigma. In the early days of her career, Williams was a fiery and unfiltered competitor. She would frequently berate officials and let her thoughts be known when she felt she was wronged on the court. Bursts of outrage in the 2004, ‘09 and ‘11 U.S. Open’s cemented Williams’ status as a dominant player who had a propensity for losing her cool....

Seton Hall University has hired Newark law firm Gibbons P.C. to independently investigate sex abuse allegations that “may have involved seminarians” at both the Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology and the College Seminary at Saint Andrew’s Hall on the South Orange campus, according to Dr. Mary Meehan, Seton Hall’s interim president. “Among the many disgraceful incidents that have shaken our collective...

Muslim student ‘racially profiled’ at SOPAC

Seton Hall students took a trip last weekend to the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) to enjoy the Seton Hall Theatre Department’s rendition of “Steel Magnolias.” However, one SHU student said she was the victim of racial profiling. Rawda Abdelmenam, a senior special education and speech pathology major, went to the Saturday, Feb. 24, 8 p.m. showing of the play, but she never made it into the theater. While Abdelmenam had...

Letter to the Editor

I am writing this letter in response to “Real Talk on Race at Seton Hall” event that occurred on campus last week. Disappointing. Historically these type of events rarely meet the expectations of those attending it, especially, the ardent supports of racial justice. That is not to say the event in itself a failure, I was surprised at the large amount of students and faculty in attendance. However, this time around the event failed to...

SHU urges Trump to work on climate change

Seton Hall has joined a global effort of more than 150 Catholic universities and organizations who have signed a letter urging President Donald Trump and members of Congress to act on climate change. Interim President Dr. Mary Meehan signed the letter on behalf of the University. She wrote in an email that she “received a request to sign the letter” by the Catholic Climate Covenant “and did so after carefully reflecting on our call to...

NBC should have acted quicker in the firing of Lauer

She’s faking it. I don’t believe her. She’s just accusing him to get her 15 minutes of fame. Why did she wait so long to come forward with these claims? These comments and questions are common responses when a sexual misconduct claim is made against a high-profile man. We’ve seen these comments made in reference to men like film producer Harvey Weinstein, Republican politician Roy Moore and comedian Louis C.K. However, those comments...

Anonymous sources do not belong in the locker room

Unnamed sources can lead to scoops. A hidden identity allows one to give more information with the veil of anonymity. A hidden identity can also mark a source as a coward. On Nov. 8, ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported that two New York Giants expressed their dislike for current head coach Ben McAdoo. “McAdoo has lost this team. He’s going 80 percent on Saturdays (in practice) before we get on a plane, it’s wild,” the player said,...

COAR faculty motion to censure Interim Provost

The College of Communication and the Arts faculty passed a motion to censure Interim Provost Dr. Karen Boroff after a faculty meeting on Oct. 13, a little more than a month after the College of Arts and Sciences faculty passed a motion of no confidence in Boroff. According to Associate Professor Peter Reader, the Chair Pro Tem for the College of Communication and the Arts, the vote to censure Boroff was cast electronically to allow...

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...

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...
