In lauding “Crazy Rich Asians” as the Holy Grail for Asians in film, we have set the bar too low. By confining its stars to playing people who are, for the most part, just a summation of their racial identities, the film leaves behind a gap in Asian representation that has yet to be bridged.
It disappoints me to see that a fellow Princetonian would fail to empathize with his international peers, or at least to see the nonsense behind the U.S. government’s attempts at “improving” its immigration system.
Managing editor and migrant student Sam Parsons recently offered his perspective on the state of America’s immigration system. In what quickly morphs from an insightful remark on the often untold vocational difficulties faced by international students to a partisan diatribe, Parsons lurches into a clumsy yet familiar attack on Trump and his not-so-recent failure to pass immigration reform.
While we have had our attention focused on the southern border, the Trump administration and Republican Party have launched waves of attacks on America’s mainstream legal immigration channels.
As comprehensive as pre-medical requirements are in some areas, they are lacking in others, ones that are critical to an effective career in medicine.
Without Neotropical migratory birds, ecosystems across the Americas would unravel. By eating millions of locusts, ants, and mosquitoes every year, migratory birds act as an important natural control on insect populations. Many species of plant depend upon migratory birds to pollinate or disperse their seeds. Ecologists often consider migratory birds to be “indicator species,” because the size and success of their populations reflect wider trends about the health of the ecosystems they inhabit.
... Flat Earth arguments are scientifically false, and their proponents’ overwhelming skepticism is unjustified.
Donald Trump’s conduct is abhorrent, but by electing him as the leader of our country, we proved our complicity in — and our approval of — such abhorrence. Worse, by continuing to support the president in substantial numbers, we have allowed him to disgrace American life even more.
ICE does a lot of excellent work that goes unnoticed. It shouldn’t be dismantled for political purposes.
Even in our very finest universities, the last or residual claims of literature, art, music, history, and philosophy have often been supplanted by professional or job training.
Migrants have not been intentionally slaughtered by the U.S. government, but the state-sanctioned family separation and incarceration of migrant families as well as the racist dehumanization of migrants is terrifyingly similar to the institutional and ideological framework of the Holocaust.
Wake up, Princetonians. Wake up, America. Wake up to the state terror that is happening every single day in the United States.
If the University can connect the new and old campuses with innovative and effective pedestrian pathways, then it will alleviate the potential issue of inaccessibility. Likewise, if its new designs can successfully relate to historic structures in clear and explicit ways, then they will evolve with time to become extensions of our campus, rather than merely additions to it.
In general, there is nothing wrong with asking alumni for donations. After all, the University is a charitable organization that provides a world-class education and conducts groundbreaking research. But it’s simply bad optics to ask seniors and the youngest alumni for their support. They just finished four grueling years of rigorous academic study. And they paid for it. Literally.
Battlefields strengthen our shared national identity. They remind us of our ancestors’ struggles to secure this country’s freedom and establish a democratic government. Once preserved, they will forever be dynamic classrooms for future generations. Unlike museums and their “look but don’t touch” policies, visitors can walk around battlefields to experience what soldiers felt, and reenactments bring history alive from dusty textbooks.
Although I think that creationist science is doubtful at best, I won’t deny that the theological and philosophical arguments in this debate — about truth and its presence in Scripture — remain unresolved. I also can’t exclude the possibility that new evidence in the future could lead to radically different conclusions about creation than what is currently believed.
Unless a reform pushes for increased transparency about the goings-on of the Honor Committee, we ought to remain skeptical of advocates’ motives.
Women like Cardi B are offering much-needed insight into the roles of women in the hip-hop and adult entertainment businesses.
Female politicians are public leaders who are in a special position to inspire societal gender equality.
What I encourage everyone to do, then, is to just take some time to think about the critical junctures in and influences on our time here.
