Write for the Future | September 30, 2016 | College

I entered a college classroom as an instructor for the first time in August, 1983. I was 28 years old, legally blind, with extremely long hair and an unkempt beard. I was in love with poetry and fresh off a Fulbright in Scandinavia where I translated Finnish poems into half-baked...

Why the World Needs Joy Now

His Holiness the Dalai Lama | September 29, 2016 | World
Since the Vietnam War, our way of thinking has changed. More and more people now publicly oppose war; we saw this opposition to war in Kosovo, in Iraq. Many people were against these wars and, from Australia to America, people openly protested against these wars. This is truly a hopeful sign.

When You Deleted Tinder For Her

Bernard Mokam | September 29, 2016 | College
It is well intentioned but perhaps it is also a curse -- I fall too easily as I hope to share myself with somebody. I have always questioned if I was desperate or unwilling to play the game. I'm not sure honestly. ...

Hofstra in Hindsight

Meena Bose | September 29, 2016 | Politics
With the second presidential debate two weeks away, both candidates have some time to review the first debate and prepare for the next one. For Trump, practice may be key, particularly extended sessions with one opponent, rather than the many that he had during the primaries.

Despite Coach Mike Riley's swift and deft endorsement of the players' right to express themselves, Husker Nation saw red. The milder among them called for the student-players to be expelled. Donors threatened to cut the program off without a dime. But it gets worse.

The University of Central Florida Forum | September 28, 2016 | College
By Meg Scharf UCF Forum columnist It is wonderful to work at our university: It's vibrant, it's a beautiful place, and people on campus are fascinating. There are a lot of myths out there in the community, however, about life and people on campus. Some are perpetuated by movies...

I Wrote That I Despised Hillary Clinton. Today, I Want To Publicly Take It Back.

Isaac Saul | September 28, 2016 | Politics
Secretary Clinton, I'm sorry. And I retract my previous position of hatred and angst towards you. You have also accomplished far more in your life as a public servant than just about anyone that's run for this office, and certainly far more than I ever will. When November rolls around, you'll have my vote.

Clinton Halts Trump’s Momentum With Decisive Debate Win

Matt Teitelbaum | September 27, 2016 | College
Monday night was a good one for Hillary Clinton. She played a sort of low risk, preventative defense in her first bout with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. With a few exceptions, she never went for Trump’s jugular with what political pundits call “zingers.” Instead, she...

Funding the War on Cybercrime

Edward Guiliano, Ph.D. | September 28, 2016 | College
In 1851, the world got a little faster. That's the year the first world's fair opened in London. Six million people visited and marveled at the new technology on display, and watched with pleasure as men traded telegraphed messages instantly between London and Manchester.

Campus Election Engagement Project | September 29, 2016 | Politics
Overlooked in the first presidential debate, Supreme Court appointments may still be the prime legacy of the next president. Given Scalia’s open seat, recent tie votes, and the age and health of several current justices, whoever wins will appoint at least one, but probably two or three justices....
