Julia Dean Thank you for making this a balanced article. I agree that both political parties are depending on campaign contributions, and this undoubtedly helps them to win. However, something to consider is that it is often the incumbent who is able to raise more, and incumbents usually have the advantage.
Julia Dean The process of selecting a new president at any college is difficult and of the utmost importance to the function of the institution. The chaos that the University of Virginia experienced in the past weeks shows how much behind the scenes action that occurs, and how many the President answers to.
Julia Dean The part of the Affordable Care Act that is most disturbing to me is that, for the first time, Congress is reaching into households and compelling individuals to act. Generally, laws work in the opposite nature, and impose restrictions. Healthcare should remain an issue for each state to deal with.
Julia Dean Facebook keeps changing in its attempts to stay relevant, and not go the way of so many internet trends (remember myspace? chat roulette?). With each new change, Facebook users are enraged, and swear that they will never learn to love the new additions. But then we forget. Can anyone even remember what Facebook was like before the notifications all collected at the top of the screen? And Facebook chat has come to be useful, and not unwelcome. Facebook keeps changing, and predicting what we're going. Even if we are forced into it, many of the changes Facebook installs have improved the product and kept us from straying. I don't know if the new Facebook email is finally a step too far, but it may be another change that we adjust to.
Julia Dean I think that these campaigns will absolutely be effective, if not in providing the impetus for smokers to quit, surely in shocking the more impressionable would-be smokers and making them reconsider. There was a time when smoking was considered cool, but science and these adds show otherwise.
Julia Dean Thanks, Sarah, I will definitely add some of your points to my own summer bucket list. Some additional points to consider: 21. Visit an amusement park: no matter how old or young, everyone loves to unwind with roller coasters, water slides, and fried food. 22. Read some great summer books. Or just the books you've been planning to read all year and never had the time for. 23. Go on a road trip. A 2 hour drive or a cross country trip, nothing brings you closer to your travel companions. 24. Learn a new skill. The summer is the perfect time to pick up that hobby and improve yourself. 25. Spend time with family and loved ones. Slow down and enjoy!
Julia Dean Daniela, you make some good points. As a conservative millenial coming up on my first election, I wish that the party I support could be more progressive when it comes to the social issues I care about. I support gay marriage and reproductive rights, but in the end I support a small government.
Julia Dean Great article, Teddy! As a member of a sorority, I agree with each of your four points. I would also like to point out that national fraternities have banned hazing, and those individual chapters that do haze are the exception, not the rule. People should not form their opinion based on such groups.
Julia Dean Great article, Tim. This project frightens me and represents a backwards slide to our nation's troubling past. Decisions such as Buck v. Bell condoning compulsory sterilization for the "mentally unfit" in America were once the norm, and in fact gave rise to Hitler's program of eugenics.
Julia Dean Chadwick, I think that you are missing the point of the article. Felicia emphasized throughout her piece that ADHD is real, and it is flippant of you to suggest that the millions of people dealing with ADHD have made it up. The medication, when used properly, can improve one's quality of life.
