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.
One of the greatest existential threats our planet is facing in this new century of technological progress, exploding population growth and unparalleled economic development is the rise of climate change. But even those who recognize the dangers of a global environmental shift fail to recognize why the rest of the country is not on board, and risk shooting themselves in the foot by pretending it’s only a problem of education.
The Republican party of today is an entirely different beast than ever before. Simultaneously ascendant and on the verge of civil war, GOP leaders have not been in such unexplored waters for decades. It's easy to point toward the election of Donald Trump and the ensuing rallying of formerly “never-Trumpers” back into the fold for the sake of political cohesion, but the dedication to Trump’s personal hand in the Houses of Congress is reaching new heights.
Homecoming all about school pride
With the 2018 elections just a year away and President Donald Trump polling at only 40 percent nationwide, Democrats smell blood in the water and are confident and ready to retake the house for the first time in eight years. But if Democrats are hoping for an easy win, they may be shocked come November 2018. While Republicans may be hitting heavy turbulence, they are far from out of this battle.
“Turn Arizona Blue” has been the rallying cry of grassroots Democrats canvassing voters across the Southwest for the past decade in an attempt to repeat Bill Clinton’s surprising win of the traditionally red state back in 1996. Hillary Clinton attempted to pay more attention to winning the state’s 11 electoral votes, dispatching political operatives to gather endorsements and fundraise. When the strategy failed to win the state, former Governor Janet Napolitano said, “The fact of the matter is that if the Latino population voted at the same percentage as the white population, Arizona would be a blue state now." This shows just how invested Democrats are in the idea of a blue Southwest.
Topic of the week: Family Weekend
There is no topic more divisive on the college campuses of America than that of free speech. While freedom of speech has always been a subject of discussion and concern, there are moments when this attempt to understand the boundaries of our liberties becomes distracted by violence and fraught with dissent.
Four Daily Wildcat columnists talk about gun control and the Las Vegas shooting.
After months of stepping on every Democrat toe he could find in the capital, President Trump is starting to look across the aisle in the face of stiffening opposition by the Republican leadership against his less cut-and-dry policies. If Democrats were told half a year ago that Trump would not only be interested in hearing their input but also be willing to soften his famously direct illegal immigration stance and even temporarily stop pushing for a border wall, they likely would have keeled over laughing at the insanity of it.
Crisis looms over the Korean peninsula as talk of nuclear warfare and bald-faced threats of destruction are thrown from one side of the Pacific to the other, and Americans are beginning to wonder whether or not the world will see an atomic showdown. But, while the threat of violence is real, it’s not new or even unique in the long and strained history of North Korean-American relations.
The power to secure the fate of 800,000 undocumented children and students should not have been left to Congress (a body of people who have produced little results on any issue as of recent.)
Once the heart of American consensus, infrastructure bills have been wrought with controversy and political infighting. This has been at the expense of the American citizen, who relies on the nation’s roads to get to work, piping to provide fresh water and power lines to supply electricity.
