This time of year, millions of students are moving to colleges and universities across the United States. They prepare for their classes, settle into their housing, reunite with old friends and prepare to make new connections. Though this time can be daunting for new students, it remains mostly shaped by optimism toward the expansive new opportunities awaiting these young adults.

The United States’ opposition to the spread of communism abroad bears a long and complicated political history.

“Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice,” as poet Robert Frost once said. However, I believe there are three threats that will be humanity's downfall: food, waste and blood.

Though it seems like it is in the news quite often, particularly because of the #MeToo movement, sexual harassment is an everyday concern. It is especially a concern for workers in restaurants, cafés and retail, where most employees are young adults. While this can be beneficial, it can also create a toxic environment for women and students ­– an environment that unfortunately includes sexual harassment.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is unfit to be the Democratic nominee, let alone president. He is a geriatric relic of a bygone era, a candidate that represents stagnancy in an age of political revolutions and upsets. Out of the many candidates on the Democratic stage, he is the second oldest only behind Sen. Bernie Sanders, Vt., and only by a single year. The ripe age of 76.
