News reflects public’s bias

Every morning, when I pick up one of the locally available papers, be it The New York Times, The Miami Herald or the Sun-Sentinel – I hunt for international headlines. And, most of the time, what I see is more news about the Middle East, Afghanistan, or Fidel’s kingdom to the south. I’m sorry to…

Media to blame for ignorance

Growing anti-American sentiment around the world remained at a high level; some people believe deserved it. This anti-American resentment might be blamed on the American press, who in its long standing dedication to journalistic excellence, have managed to skew foreign news, essentially reporting the news advertisers want to see. There is little doubt those lives…

Letter to the Editor

Re: Student Government President Jose Diaz’ Jan. 25 It is good to know that at least someone is listening to me. I want to thank Jose Diaz, our student government president for responding to my article, “Parking Blunders.” He obviously cares for the school, which is reassuring, and he wanted to defend the administration from…

Analyzing the Living Wage

Very shortly University of Miami administrators will grapple with a faculty proposal recommending pay increases to hundreds of UM employees and contracted workers to match state minimum wage standards (p.c. definition- “living wage”). By now these same administrators recognize the precariousness of their position as measure proponents maneuver them into a “lose-lose” situation. The proposal…

Letter to the Editor

In response to the article written on students and their cell phones while in class, let me say this loud and clear: Huh?? In this land that’s in its own little world, where Gucci shades, Porsche convertibles, and breast implants are as common as the warm weather, you don’t have to be a genius to…

The Indie Scene in Miami

Though people complain the music scene in Miami is all about Gucci flip-flops, Italian hair gel and the latest from Oakie and cohorts, the small indie electronic music scene is thriving in Miami. Miami Bass lives on with the help of dedicated djs and the venues that support the scene, though ensconced within the urban…

Chez Chartwells

Cafeteria food. No matter where we eat it or how we eat it, it’s always the same: tasteless, boring and, in a nutshell, nasty. So it follows that Chartwells, however fancy the name, stays true to tradition. In the brochures we receive in our orientation packages, we are told about the many places we can…

Don’t keep off the grass

Keep Off the Grass? When I told one my former political science professors that I was considering coming to the University of Miami, he said, “Isn’t that campus just like a country club?” I didn’t know. I had never seen it. Now that I’ve been here for all of one semester, I can see what…

An examination of desktop scrawl

If you wish to feel the pulse of college students, then read the scrawl on the study stations situated near the walls and windows of the Richter library. These eclectic snapshots of mystical rumination, adolescent angst, and disturbing perversity mostly represent neither graffiti nor art. Rather, I contend that library squiggle chronicles the recurring themes…

Parking Blunders

Just when I think the bigwigs of the University of Miami can’t sink any lower than they have, they strike again and pull another boneheaded move. As I walked back to my room in Eaton after a refreshing Christmas break, what to my wondering eyes should appear? A brand new patio in front of the…

Cellular Divide

Professors at the University of Miami have no sympathy for student emergencies. While they may be great researchers, and a selected few great teachers, they fail to understand that when a student’s cell phone rings, it’s always an emergency. Today’s college student lives under a lot of pressure. The student of the 21st century lives…

What if NFL fails?

So you win the national championship. Is that the end of the line? It is a wonderful accomplishment especially for a team, a school, which has been through so much in the last five years. But how can some say that it is the end of the road? Juniors’ Jeremy Shockey, Clinton Portis, and Phillip…
