The students and...

The best way to remedy the lack of civility in political conversations on college campuses is to join clubs that foster constructive dialogue.

Memes can help people cope

Memes can help people cope

AMAR JOSHI, Evergreen columnist

Filed under Columns, Opinion

Twitter is filling faster and faster with relatable, low-hanging memes about depression, mental illness and suicide. Frankly, it’s getting tough to wade through all that garbage just to get to good content. The weird thing is while I can relate to them, I never find them genuinely funny. Thanks...

Abortion should be legal and accessible for all women in all circumstances. While technically a growing fetus is not part of a woman’s body, the changes her body endures are and the effects of a woman carrying a baby to term affect everyone. In today’s political climate, abortion is one of the...

Self-awareness alone isn’t as valuable as you think

AMAR JOSHI, Evergreen colunmist

Filed under Columns, Opinion

Being self-aware doesn’t immediately make you funny and it is rarely positive to be only self-aware. The ability for something to understand that it is conscious is called sentience. So far, we are the only sentient creatures on this planet. That makes us special. It means we can grasp our own thoughts...

Weight Watchers rebranded itself in September, as WW and announced it would become a wellness and weight loss company. Besides updating some features and integrating well-known meditation app Headspace, this rebrand does not actually do anything meaningful to change Weight Watchers or fix the program’s...

Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed on Saturday as the 114th Supreme Court justice. Kavanaugh’s confirmation is more than just a f-ck you to Democrats. To myself and many other survivors of sexual violence, the Kavanaugh confirmation is the answer to a question we have been wrestling with for years: Would...

Filed under Columns, Opinion

Wealth distribution is one of the most divisive topics in our country. It seems as if socialism and capitalism are always the center of political debate. In a more progressive era of the U.S., free-market capitalism has been given an unfair reputation, especially among youth. Fifty-one percent of...

Mutual attraction is a memorable and irreplaceable experience, especially the first time it happens. The feeling is special, but some never experience it.

Sexual assault allegations deserve an investigation before they are immediately discounted. If the recent increase in allegations has shown anything, it is that they deserve to be heard. Sexual assault and harassment are so pervasive that no survivor is alone in their experience or trauma. I thought...

Let’s face it, legal weed is great for Washington. People can smoke it in a blunt or hit from a bowl, bake with it and get baked on it. Fun for all ages at or above the legal limit. Washington income in 2017 from marijuana sales was $315 million, and half of this collection was put to funding...
