Hurricanes football rushing to better seasons

This isn’t express mail. The results go through a process that takes some time to be delivered. This is football. In the case of our Canes, the process involved going through a long and stormy road. The physicality, talent and game planning take a few years of development and even longer if the foundation was…

Smoke-free policy deserves reignition

You’re on your way to class, soaking in the radiance of the South Florida sun and inhaling the refreshing breeze, when suddenly you smell an odor disseminating through the air. Ahead of you is someone puffing a cigarette. The university put into place a smoke-free policy on Aug. 1 in order to “promote a healthy…

Politicians should place people before principle during shutdown

There is a recklessness in Washington, D.C., that has consequences extending beyond the mere 68 square miles of the capital district, the 535 members of Congress and the commander in chief. Because of egotism, national leaders have chosen to hold the government hostage. As a result, political gamesmanship has been put ahead of the common…

9/11 leaves us with memories, teaches us lessons

Sept. 11, 2001 is one of those days in history for which everyone remembers where they were, what they were doing and who they were with. I remember I was in the third grade, working on an assignment in the morning with my classmates, when the school principal appeared to deliver to us the shocking…

Focus on the bigger picture of online privacy

One of our peers has asked, “Where are the college students protesting NSA surveillance?” with regards to the recent divulgence about the National Security Agency surveillance program known as PRISM. I saw this question raised in an opinion piece published  online in USA Today College, admittedly bringing up an interesting point. But government surveillance is…

Canes fans determine team’s success

Decibels from the roar of the crowd multiply as smoke rises from the tunnel. Sebastian storms out with raised arms and fingers pointing up toward the heavens, and the players and coaching staff follow, emerging from the smoke. This, along with the cheerleaders, marching band and Jumbotron, can mean only one thing. College football season…

Benefits of energy drinks not worth risk

I t may seem like a panacea for your late night studying – the advertised powerful energy boost used by all hard working people alike – its ease of consumption found innocently at convenience stores. However, these energy drinks are no innocuous substance. Not only are these drinks unregulated health hazards, but their effectiveness may…

Corporate America alters pastime

I bet even Vince Lombardi would be amazed. Amazed at the speed and agility of today’s offenses. Amazed at the brunt force trauma inflicted by today’s defenses. Amazed at how today’s Super Bowl  has transformed into a multimillion dollar game of not just athletic, but cultural significance. Initially known as the “First AFL-NFL World Championship Game,”…

Christmas, New Year offer fresh start

As I get back into my college routine for the onset of the spring semester, I cannot help but reflect back on what a great holiday break I had. The beaming Christmas trees, cheerful holiday tunes, bountiful gustatory goodies, family and friends are all linchpins for a great holiday experience. However, what I was able…

Passiveness brews a potion for oblivion

In college, students are no longer “big fish in a small pond.” At the University of Miami, individuals are among thousands of talented undergraduates. There is no most popular class president, no most praised state champion and no one pretty prom queen anymore. Instead, there are many leaders, many high-caliber athletes and many pageant girls….

Parents nurture children’s success

Family Weekend brought parents together to visit their children and take part in activities planned for their enjoyment. Family is one aspect of our lives that we are fortunate to have. The first 18 years of our upbringing was a time for our parents to directly mold values of propriety and rectitude into our backbone…

Take initiative, make this year count

As the fall semester commences in colleges across the country, students that walk into their first classes of the school year have their own set of goals in mind to accomplish. We students are all driven by an aura of excitement; even the usual milquetoast seems to radiate a heightened sense of chutzpah. However, at…
