While Donald Trump probably ranks first on the average woman’s most-hated list, E. Jean Carroll places him at twentieth on hers. The advice columnist details her alleged experience with Trump, as well as other atrocious men, in an excerpt from her book, What Do We Need Men For? Her account of the incident entitled “Hideous Men” is graphic and heartbreaking, his behavior accurate to his self-admitted “grabbing” tendencies. She describes the assault as a run-in with a
This woman claimed that her house went “under the water” but that she considered it a natural disaster and that she thanked God nonetheless. Finally, she thanked the IRGC and the IRCS for their support in the testing times. “I thank the volunteers of the Red Crescent, the IRGS, and the army. All of those who came here,” she said.
Climate change is real. Our planet is warming up at an alarming rate, and evidence clearly shows that humans are at the root of this drastic and dangerous change. According to NASA, ice melt rates in the Antarctic have tripled in the past decade, while nine of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred since 2005. We are at a point where it is virtually impossible for anyone to deny that there is a
Social media, by the popular press, is always seen as a harbinger for chaos, a ‘media source’ that blurs the line between opinion piece and fact that spreads rumors faster than light and allows fantasy to take flight on butterfly wings that allow little room for facts. But is that really all it is? And how is governance tied into a platform used by adolescents to share pictures that no one really cares about to
On February 15, President Trump declared a national emergency on the border with Mexico to access the $5.7 billion that Congress refused to give him for his promised southwestern border wall. The declaration resulted from a two-month long government shutdown that was essentially the accumulation of the President’s temper tantrum over not getting exactly what he wanted. The thing is, there are far worse emergencies in the U.S. than border control at the southern border.
There is no denying that there is political chaos in our country which has led the government to a standstill. President Trump has created a controversial situation that cannot be so easily resolved. According to The Guardian, the partial US government shutdown took effect after Senate failed to pass a budget that included the US$5 billion President Trump demanded for the wall. Unfortunately, it seems that the shutdown has yet to end and will extend
Every year, the global community celebrates December 10 as the International Human Rights Day and the week it falls on as Human Rights Week to mark the anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the UN General Assembly in 1948. However, in the identities of the powers running the countries that observe it on the official level, and other countries who are vocal about human rights in general, I find
The U.S. dollar is the world’s greatest reserve currency, with around 63% of global reserves held in it. It also enjoys a special position as the fiat currency – or a currency widely relied upon by businesspeople worldwide – and as the primary currency in which international bilateral trading is done, even when the U.S. is not a party in the said deal. All this has given the U.S. dollar, and hence the country it
On Sept. 20, 2017, the tenth-most intense Atlantic hurricane on record made landfall as a Category 5 storm to the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, destroying approximately 80% of the island and leaving 100% of citizens powerless and in the wake of an utter disaster. The death toll, in Hurricane Maria’s aftermath, was officiated at an estimated 2,975, with some still unaccounted for. Water and food shortages ran rampant, hospitals were closed due to damage
Does loss of life have a color? A certain bank account? A value based upon intelligence or access? Has our world reached a place wherein disaster relief and aid is just as polarizing as every other evidence of racial and socioeconomic divide? For the past week, the United States has effortlessly focused their time and energy in preparing the east coast for the impact of Hurricane Florence. Mandatory evacuations, taking effect in the Carolinas and
