The following is an edited version of the conversation, which has been condensed for clarity.
A couple of weeks ago, I received a startling email in the Forbes listserv from a student claiming that he had ruined his eyes by overusing electronic screens. Maybe you remember seeing the email, too, with its foreboding title: “Don’t Be Me. Graduate on Time!” Later that day, I brought the email up with some friends, and we reflected on its urgency, half shrugging it off but half wondering whether such a thing could really happen to us — would we wake up one morning, suddenly unable to look at a phone or computer, like the email’s author said happened to him?

In 2008, Rebecca Solnit published the groundbreaking article “Men Explain Things to Me” outlining her repeated experiences with men ignoring her established knowledge (Solnit has written seventeen books about the environment, politics, and art) and condescendingly explaining her expertise to her — in one extreme case, explaining her own book. The publication of this article led to the coining of the word “mansplaining,” or “the explanation of something by a man, typically to a woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing,” according to Oxford Dictionaries.
This Friday, the Trump administration announced its new rule, which will cut Title X funding for clinics that provide abortions or abortion referrals. Providers will have to make abortion facilities “physically and financially” separate from their federally funded clinics, including separate staff and entrances. The rule will also contain a “domestic gag rule,” which will prohibit doctors and nurses from providing their pregnant patients with any information about the abortion procedure.
A man squints into the distance of an arctic tundra, his fur hat buffeted by wind. A woman fiercely pilots a helicopter. Three hikers charge through dead grass at the summit of a mountain, logos faintly visible on the upper left arms of their knits. “Our mission is to free people from the cold — no matter where they live — and empower them to experience more from life,” Canada Goose states on their Indeed page.

This past weekend, the No. 7 ranked women’s hockey team (20–6–5, 15–4–3 ECAC) began postseason play with a bang. The Tigers beat St. Lawrence (14–15–7, 9–7–6), 4–1 on Friday evening and 6–2 on Saturday afternoon. Winning these two games moved Princeton on to the semifinals and meant the Tigers did not have to play a deciding third game on Sunday. Princeton leaves behind its decisive home-ice advantage – thanks to its rowdy fan support – and will travel to Ithaca, New York next weekend when it faces Cornell (22–4–6, 17–3–2) in the semifinals.

The next two nights, they can be seen competing together for a $1 million prize in the final round of the Jeopardy!

Auditions season is once again upon us. Every day, it seems, another group is sending out an email telling us we should come to auditions. Many of these emails will joyfully claim that no experience is necessary. But it seems that many students — or at least many on Tiger Confessions — feel this is not quite true. Post #3866, for instance, expresses this frustration exactly, claiming that the exclusivity of many audition-based groups is arbitrary. Having prior experience gives students a significant advantage in the audition process. Understandably, the status quo has left many of our peers feeling frustrated: many feel they were roped into an unfair audition. Perhaps, then, it is time to change auditions to placement-only auditions, wherein each group has a “Varsity” and “Junior Varsity” sub-group.
From Maria Ressa ’86 to Imee Marcos, Princeton University has been making headlines lately in the Philippines. The Daily Princetonian Editorial Board last week expressed their solidarity with Filipino journalist Maria Ressa after her arrest, and a few days later, the paper’s News section clarified that provincial governor Imee Marcos (the daughter of Ferdinand Marcos, a former dictatorial president of the Philippines) did not graduate from the University. These two cases are not isolated events, but in fact are tightly linked and reflective of the worsening political climate under the controversial regime of Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
