Editor’s Word: Where has America’s credibility gone?

Now in the early stages of a new executive administration, the United States of America has found herself falling rather short of the once great-promises and principles championed by admired leaders and patriotic citizens. This nation is not as formidable and credible as it used to be, and that has critical impact across the globe. America has st...

San Bernardino: An act of violence sheds light on greater idea

Patrick Holmes

Gun violence has voraciously spread across the country and in the past few years, has been the center of media attention yet, it seems that very little has been done to prevent it. Although school shootings are not new, they have grown in frequency, with the latest occurrence in a San Bernardino, CA elementary school. The “domestic” attack littered med...

Misguided messages leave some wanting more

Katie Dugan

Mental illness is not often taken seriously, even by  those who have the power to influence change. Filmmakers, celebrities and power figures alike could do a better job at advocating for those suffering. Last month, Netflix released its much-anticipated series, an adaptation of Jay Asher’s young adult novel, “Thirteen Reasons Why.” The overar...

Degrade the North Korean economy

Donald Moskowitz

President Trump has pointed out the strong linkage between China and North Korea, and he correctly assumes China can influence North Korea’s weapons development program.  We must work with China on resolving this situation, and also on the Chinese encroachment in the South China Sea and the trade deficit imbalance. At this juncture, the North Ko...

Trump’s retaliation against Syrian chemical attacks could be justified

Patrick Holmes and Timi Ogunabjo

On Apr. 6, President Donald Trump launched a seemingly justified military attack on the Shayrat aircraft base in Syria. This airstrike was a response to the chemical weapons used by the Syrian government that killed 80 innocent civilians, including women and children, but was meant to deter the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS). The response from...

Rebuilding our Military with Trump

Donald Moskowitz

As a Navy veteran and a strong supporter of our military, I commend President Trump for initiating a program to rebuild our military with a defense budget increase of $54 billion. However, it should be decreased by $1.3 billion and that amount added to the Coast Guard budget within the Department of Homeland Security so it is not cut by $1.3 billion....

Editor’s Word: Advising for upperclassmen needs a makeover

Graduating from Suffolk University in the usual four years is not an uncomplicated task; not because the academic side of the institution is outrageously challenging for students, but because registering for the necessary classes in order to obtain their degree is needlessly inconvenience. Often, students’ stress levels peak when they learn a certain class they must...

Editor’s Word: Journalists take the fall from the defense of empty political ideals

A stigma of detest and abhorrence has rooted itself in the core of the political sphere. Everyone has failed to see what’s right in front of them; not only are a bulk of people incorrect and misinformed nowadays, but they are aimlessly and inappropriately disputing any opposing side for the sole principle of winning a debate--without firmly and accurately standing up for ...
