As the winter season sets its sights upon us and we cringe in the anticipation of dawning our parkas and boots, a warm drink is just what the doctor ordered.

Let’s all dress however we’re comfortable and remember that Halloween is a night where we should all relax, have fun and eat copious amounts of candy.

I believe that capitalism is often glossed over within the feminist movement (or human rights groups for that matter) as something that can’t be changed or even discussed as a source of potential obstacles. As a result, I encourage all of us to think more about the ways capitalism may be impeding progress and ways that we can work to combat these issues.

Rather than ineffectual, superficial attempts to gloss over this problem, the University needs to encourage solutions at the individual level with the support of the entire community in mind

I worry that the wrong message is still being expressed, both in this song and among the larger push for body love.

The intentions of the play were good — the Big Ten schools are trying to perform plays written by women, and “Good Kids” was supposed to continue the dialogue about sexual violence. However, it took all of my energy not to sit there just screaming one high-pitched note for the entirety of the play.

As we all know, University Athletic Director Dave Brandon mishandled the situation surrounding sophomore quaterback Shane Morris and the entire campus responded with massive protests that were taken to the University president’s front lawn. For the record, I don’t care, and I’m about to make a case for why you shouldn’t either.

The word “rape” contains a magnitude that far exceeds its stoic dictionary definition of “the unlawful compelling of a person through physical force or duress to have sexual intercourse.” Indeed, the word “rape” has, over the course of the past 20 years, come to dominate our societal vocabulary. Rape is more than just an act. It is an epidemic that is far from controlled.

Last year, President Obama spoke to a crowd of over 1,000 University of Michigan students on campus. His speech touched on a variety of topics, from health care to higher education, but the issue that predominated his speech was his plan to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $10.10 per hour.

In United States elections, third-party candidates are rarely taken seriously and almost never receive a substantial number of votes. However, in the upcoming midterm elections, Independents Greg Orman of Kansas and Larry Pressler of South Dakota have the potential to decide the fate of the U.S. Senate. Orman is challenging Sen.

Starting my year at Hertford College at Oxford University, I was most intrigued by the history and culture of the university — this was only second to simply identifying myself as an Oxford student from now on. Being a medieval city, it of course has the beautiful old historical buildings, best described as Harry Potter-like.

This might just replace your plastic credit card. Apple CEO Tim Cook, slowly walking across the stage in his jeans and untucked purple shirt, gave a glimpse of the new Apple Pay at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco, California, earlier this month.

These numbers, scribbled on a white sheet of paper, hang on my wall right next to my alarm clock. It’s the very first thing I see every morning when I wake up to my deafening alarm that is sure to be heard throughout the halls.
