You know the midterms are in full swing when The New York Times is actually putting out articles about Arizona. Here in the Grand Canyon State, the midterms have just gotten more and more divisive with each passing day, starting with the three-way competition for the Republican nomination between Pima County’s own Congresswoman Martha McSally, former State Senator Kelli Ward and controversial former Sheriff of Maricopa County Joe Arpaio. Martha McSally was able to jump from Arizona District 2 to the official Republican nominee for Senate, while her Democratic challenger Kyrsten Sinema was able to easily beat out any challengers within her party.
The United States is unique in the scope of its experiment; the whole democratic process, starting back in the 1770s, was as harebrained in its day as it is taken for granted now.
Americans were alarmed Wednesday when they realized that Donald Trump can send direct messages to every phone in the United States, alarmed enough to cause three New Yorkers to file a lawsuit against President Trump and FEMA Administrator William "Brock" Long. The New Yorkers stated in their suit that Trump’s "rise to power was facilitated by weaponized disinformation that he broadcast into the public information sphere via Twitter in addition to traditional mass media." Though a suit seems a bit much, many of us are skeptical of what is going to be pushed on the newly formed alert system.
Set against the backdrop of recent sexual assault allegations leveled at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, what do our columnists think of an inflammatory tweet from Vox-contributor Eve Foster?
We have both the honor and the curse of living in the heart of the Sonoran Desert; we are blessed with the gorgeous southwestern sunsets that cover the postcards of gas stations worldwide and privileged to possess the only habitat for the famous saguaro cactus (so famous, in fact, that it manages to be the image of the Southwest to all other Americans, even though saguaros have difficulty growing outside of our corner of Southern Arizona). Of course we accept these blessings happily, taking stock of our serene landscape everyday and celebrating our merciful winters at the start of every holiday season. But we are also cursed with a very obvious problem: Tucson is over half-a-million people living in the middle of a desert.
It’s no secret that Arizona is hot. Nobody is trying to cover up the fact that Arizona regularly clocks temperatures above 110 degrees every summer, or that the Grand Canyon State not only has the two hottest cities in the United States — Phoenix and Tucson, in that order. It is also home to the highest average temperature location in the country, Lake Havasu City, where a scorching 96.4 degrees is the summer average, according to AZ Central.
Arizona has officially opened its 2018 midterm election campaign with a historic all-female Senate race between Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema and Republican candidate as well as Pima county’s own U.S. House Representative Martha McSally. Both candidates received their nominations handily, with Sinema taking over 80 percent of the primary vote and McSally emerging with 53 percent of the vote against runner-up Kelli Ward and the controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio, according to the New York Times.
In the wake of national strikes, protests, walkouts, political infighting and various divisive issues demanding direct action, Arizona is becoming the next battleground state for education and gun control activists.
There have been very few moments in time when transportation was radically and irrevocably changed across the entire world. From the invention of steam-powered trains, the introduction of cars and the globalization of airplanes, mankind has always aspired to revolutionize the way we move around. And it is beginning to seem like we are on the verge of another development that is ready to change the way we travel: self-driving cars.
In one corner we have California, the heart of the West, the most populous state of the Union and the home of Hollywood and Silicon Valley.
In the wake of the tragic Parkland High School shooting, and a new height of gun deaths in the country, governors all across the country have been forced to take a stand and act on the issue of gun control. With over 15,000 people dying just last year from incidents involving firearms, it is becoming impossible to ignore the havoc spreading across the country. Solutions to the continual loss of life from guns differ radically from state to state.
For nine days, teachers in West Virginia participated in a mass walkout. They were striking against low pay, austere budgets and a state government unwilling to invest in education. After a week and a half of negotiations, the teachers returned to their posts in exchange for a 5-percent pay increase, a surprising victory for the teachers’ union.
Francisco Cantú has been shaped by his experiences living in a border state, taking in its natural beauty and coming to terms with the difficult questions it brings with it.
In the U.S., over 2 million people are being held in incarceration. Overwhelmingly, these prisoners are being held in state prisons, rather than federal prisons, meaning the burden of prison overcrowding has mostly been on the states.
The Arizona House of Representatives sent shockwaves throughout the state by removing the scandal-ridden Don Shooter from office after several serious allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct were leveled against him.
Donald Trump does not like NAFTA, and if a deal isn't made to save the agreement soon, local students will feel the effects while shopping and when looking for work.
Few health crises have exploded as quickly as that of the opioid crisis. Beginning in earnest during the 1990s, this epidemic has continued to wreak havoc all across the U.S. for over 25 years.
We often treat happiness and success at work or school as being a zero sum game; sacrifice one for the health of the other, and switch off once it becomes impossible to sustain. Study to the point of exhaustion during the school week, and then party enough to make up for another depressingly long day of lectures. But studies show that treating work and play as two different beasts may be doing more damage to yourself and those around you.
