Young Pakistani activist to have time to shine

It can be hard sometimes to believe in optimism in a political world where our government can barely get its act together. That’s why I am an absolute believer in Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani blogger-turned-education activist who is recovering from a gunshot to the head and now charming hearts all over the world. Truly,…

Why The Government Broke

The story of the congressional crisis is rooted back years, and to understand it, we must know why. FIRST: Partisanship rose since the “Southern Strategy”. Where democrats included southern conservatives and republicans northern moderates, creating space for bipartisan crossover, the two parties now are almost ideologically sound. Republicans are more so than democrats; consider democrats from Arkansas and…

Florida republicans love to hate Obamacare

Florida is, by any measure, a weird place. Our twitter persona is a series of increasingly unbelievable crime headlines. Our sports teams celebrate a season of losing by losing their final game by less points than against previous opponents. One of the arguably weirdest things about Florida, though, is obviously its politics. Consider August, when…

What Do You Mean, The Government Shut Down?

You may have heard that our federal government has shut down. It’s a weird topic, because it raises questions, like “OMFG ARE U SERIOUS”, and “CAN U JUST NOT EVEN??”, which isn’t usually the tone that we give to the most successful constitutional republic in history. What’s actually going on? For the government to operate,…

Obamacare will benefit everyone sooner or later

In a recent Miami Hurricane Q&A, President Donna E. Shalala did an excellent job explaining to us students how we would be affected by the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare.” I still feel, though, that a lot of students don’t grasp the fundamental importance of Obamacare to a prosperous nation and a…

Nothing more successful in a job hunt than actually being successful

In its Sept. 15 issue, The Miami Hurricane published an opinion piece by Taylor Duckett (“Networking Increases Job Options“), encouraging students to network, attend the upcoming career expo, and take advantage of the immeasurable resource that is the Toppel Career Center. But I fear that only relying on networks is a shallow artifice for quality…

Football, academics not defined by numbers

We have seen a recent change in our university’s rankings. On Sunday, the Associated Press named our football team No. 15 in the country. On Tuesday, the U.S. News & World Report ranked UM No. 47 in, you know, academics. (I’d like to note that the University of Miami is ahead of the University of…

Take it from a former freshman

Dear freshmen, Judging by the 50+ posts a day going up on the Facebook Class of 2017 group, I’d like to think that you’re very excited to arrive on campus. You could also be very bored during the summer, but I’m going with the first one. In that case, let me assure you that the…

Obama’s loan plan: too little, too late

President Obama often speaks about how he was able to pay off his student loans in 2004. This provides optimism to current students who worry about being able to balance their loan debts – until they realize that by that point, Obama had been a law school professor, bestselling author and U.S. senator-elect. Student loan…

Rising national rankings boost UM status

This year we witnessed the meteoric rise of coach Larranaga and the men’s basketball team, from starting unranked, rising to as high as No. 2 in national polls and winning the ACC Championship. As the philosopher Aubrey Graham says, “Started from the bottom, now we’re here.” This deserves celebration, but in the end, even Shane…
